The Squad[edit]

Civilians[edit]

Carmen Sotomayor Tormentosan restaurant owner and Bell’s friend. Father of Ricky with an unnamed villain.

Patrick Quinn The doctor who is helping Quicksilver with her nanite issue.

Hayley Brick’s best friend from before who’s still friends with the new improved version.

Glen Jacobs News blogger at a sensational news site called "The Spotlight" who is too good at digging up secrets for his own good, or the Squad's.

Professor Graham Bell's mentor back in the 70's. He doesn't seem to be around any more, but maybe he's alive? He was in his 30's in the 70's... that makes him how old?

Reva Singh Director at the Halcyon Antiquities Museum

Heroes[edit]

Diamond Gem’s disembodied mentor. Respected female super who died years ago, maybe at the hands of Ambassador Bell.

The Silver Sentinel Blacksmith’s nemesis.

Champion A woke superhero. Brick admires him.

Retro-Man Diamond's close friend who vanished a few months before she did. Secret: Is a member of a reincarnating Legacy

Tankbuster Diamond's former lover, seems resentful of Gem. Has power-set with abilities Flight, Super-Strength, Invulnerability, Power-Blasts from Hands, Energy Absorption

The Arbiter Scary vigilante who mostly operates at night. Nobody's quite sure what his powers are, but villains who've tangled with him are reluctant to do so again.

Daybreak A glowy humanoid alien with light-control powers that Shrapnel likes.

Hero Teams[edit]

Elemental Angels An element-themed team that used to work with Diamond

  • Airsmith = Leader and air-aspected. Creates solid constructs from air.
  • Quake-King = Earth-aspected. Generates shockwaves through the ground, and can slowly mold earth into desired shapes (walls, barriers).
  • Sinder = Fire-aspected. Joined after Diamond's disappearance. Absorbs fire and uses that to buff her toughness, endurance, and strength. Has minimal redirection capability for fire.
  • Greenknight = Life-aspected. Joined after Diamond's disappearance. For people and animals, he heals; for plants, he promotes growth (or kills them); for the ground, he can increase or decrease fertility.
  • Aquifier = Water-aspected. Hydrokinetic.


Brute Force Bronze age super-team of enhanced vigilante types that fought Shrapnel

  • Overkill (team leader, military training, boosted senses and regeneration)
  • Collateral (explosive energy blasts; probably the one responsible for Shrapnel's injury)
  • Hardcase (inbuilt armour; increased strength and toughness)
  • Switchblade (increased reflexes and retractable blades; hospitalised when Shrapnel tore out her cybernetic implants)


Sanguine Sisterhood Alternate versions of the girls from a high-magic version of Earth. Bell calls them the "creepy wizard chicks."

  • Scrapper Master of Metals!
  • Ms. Mercury Elemental Essence!
  • Stone Immortal Wizard-Warrior!
  • The Surgeon Blood-Fueled Healer!
  • Princess Power Visitor from Another Realm!

Villains[edit]

Ambassador Bell Bell’s older self. She killed Diamond, worked for Aegis, did a lot of stuff.

Zentrum The team's first enemy, a mind-controlling robot.

Blacksmith Silver age roboticist and robot supremacist. Shrapnel’s mentor. Now imprisoned in the Spike.

Finch A mysterious information broker. Shrapnel's ex.

Ellen “Devil” Drummond Dealer in Cosmic Artifacts. Not from this Earth.

Mad Magpie Dealer in Alien tech. Avian alien.

The Shadow Empire The mad alchemists who mutated Brick.

Arquero A female archer who steals from the rich. Shrapnel likes her.

The Yellow Comet/ Cometa Amarilla A fireball-throwing maniac from Tormentosa, now in AEGIS custody.

Killswitch Former associate of the Blacksmith

Others[edit]

Rosa Rook CEO of Rook Industries.

Chief Okonjo Rook Industries Security Chief. He is still sore at Shrapnel.

Mary Cho Rook Industries Scientist. Knows more than she's telling.

MK Labs A fugitive group of rogue scientists, on the run after the human experimentation that created Quicksilver.

Locations[edit]

Gem’s Hidden Base (with Security System)

It's rundown a bit due to 8 years of no repair, but Gem is working on getting everything functional-ish. The security system was the easiest, as it already had some self-repair properties. The lounge, at least, is nice with mis-matched old sofas and thick quilts that Gem picks up at the occasional yard sale.
