Real Name: Kennedy Kincaid
Height: 6’2”
Weight: 186 lbs
Hair: Black
Eye Color: Yellow


Complications:
Gotta Make It!: Dead Kennedy wants to make his fame and fortune in the music industry, however that has not happened yet.

Monkey On His Back: Dead Kennedy enjoys living the life of a maybe-be rock star as it enables him to indulge in several vices.

Prejudice: Obvious Transhuman.

Reputation: Dead Kennedy is known for being a sarcastic asshole.

That HURTS!: More times than not, dying hurts. A LOT! Dead Kennedy vividly remembers the pain of what killed him when he returns to life afterwards.



Background: Kennedy Kincaid lived the life of a struggling musician in New York City, drifting from girlfriend to girlfriend for financial support while his band played the local club scene trying to obtain a record deal. Like so many other members of the scene Kennedy indulged in drug use, mostly any freebies someone was willing to share, but that indulgence was responsible for the biggest change in his life.

It was a night like any other – Kennedy and the rest of his band were at a party following a show and someone was sharing some of their stash and Kennedy took the offered drug and immediately overdosed…then his Alpha powers manifested to save his life. Unfortunately for Kennedy, his power is that he is incapable of dying - he’s already died a record fifteen times in various ways since gaining his powers. None the less, Dead Kennedy, as he is known more commonly known, is still trying to make it in the music business. He had no desire to be a “hero” as he realizes that his powers really aren’t that useful for fighting super villains and in all honesty, Kennedy isn’t the kind of guy who’d be very willing to put his neck on the line even if he does come back.

Instead he continues to pursue his music career, though he seems unable to break out of the club scene. Thanks to his long-time association with the drug scene that’s involved with the life he lives, Kennedy knows a lot of what is going on in the criminal community and is sometimes will to share that knowledge with someone willing to meet the prices he asks for.

Real Name: Unknown
Height: 6’3”
Weight: Unknown
Hair: Black
Eye Color: Blue


Complications:
His Own Code: Graves follows a personal code that follows “the natural way of things”, what that means exactly isn’t clear but in the past he’s not fought against certain villains because of those beliefs.

Power Loss: Graves must have access to Nerull's Eye to use his abilities.

Responsibility ~Sentinel of Magic: Graves works to protect the general public from mystical threats.

Responsibility ~Nerull’s Eye: An artifact of impressive mystical power, Nerull’s Eye has been handed down several generations of Graves’s family to keep it from falling into the hands of someone who might misuse it’s abilities.


Background: There is very little known about the man who answers to the name of Graves, aside from the fact that he uses an artifact that is more commonly known as Nerull’s Eye, which allows him to access necromantic magics. Despite the dark source of his powers, Graves has used them fighting against supernatural and mundane threats.

It has been while pursuing those various confrontations that Graves has had dealings with not only the various bearers of the Aurelius title but the first and second Blackstone as well as the Alliance over the course of past two decades, yet he hasn't seemed to age hardly at all. There have been times that Graves has caused tensions between himself and other heroes, as he way of handling threats has been considered to be "excessive" or not "aggressive enough". Why asked about his reasons, Graves only response has been that "He walks his own path, which sometimes parts from those he is traveling with."

None the less, Graves continues to regularly fights against numerous mystical threats without any thought of his own well being.

Real Name: Danielle, Diana, & Denise Waller
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 153 lbs
Hair: Red
Eye Color: Green


Complications:
Loyalty: Psikosis does as she is told by Ghostworks.

Motivation ~Destruction: Psikosis kills and destroys for the pleasure she finds in doing it.

Sadist: Psikosis loves exerting her power over others and can get too involved in it to notice what’s happening around her.

Temper: Psikosis has a short fuse, she can go from calm to murderous in the blink of an eye.

Three-In-One: Psikosis was a set of identical triplicates who have merged together, but each one still retains their individual personalities (Danielle, Diana, & Denise) within their shared body.


Background: When the Waller triplicates first manifested their psionic gifts they were quickly picked up by Ghostworks and taken to one of their many labs for study. During the years of testing and painful experiments, somehow the three young psychics merged their bodies together while maintaining their individual personalities and powers, though each personality must be in control of their shared body to use their particular set of psionic abilities. Regardless, all three of them were twisted by their experiences and at some point, they eventually became a willing operative of Ghostworks.

She enjoys the missions and assignments she's given and would be a chaotic super villain if left to her own devices. Something that her Ghostworks handlers are well aware of and often send Psikosis out on smaller missions just to keep her occupied and out of worse trouble she would get herself into.

Real Name: Joseph Hawkins
Aliases: Philippe Orléans
Height: 6’3”
Weight: 226 lbs
Hair: Black
Eye Color: Brown


Complications:
Honor: Caliber will always finish a job he has been paid to do.

Motivation ~Personal Pride: Caliber wants to prove he is the best there is at what he does.

Rivalry: As a Alpha mercenary, he has a rivalry with Battalion, Carnifex, and Gunslinger.


Background: Joseph Hawkins was raised by in France where he joined the French Foreign Legion when he was of the proper age. It was while on assignment in 2002 as part of Opération Licorne, France’s peacekeeping operation in support of the United Nations Operation in Côte d'Ivoire, that Joseph was injured when the Ivorian governmental air force carried out an attack on a French held position.

Something about the trauma his body suffered caused Joseph to manifest abilities that allowed him to recover faster than what was humanly possible and during his physical rehab it was discovered that he possessed an uncanny hand-eye coordination as well as a heightened level of athleticism. Seeing something they could use to their advantage, the French Government created a cover story that Joseph had been too badly injured to return to active duty and he was medically discharged from service, where a person that was paid very well played the part of the now crippled Joseph living a quiet life in the French countryside.

Meanwhile Joseph was given a new identity, that of Philippe Orléans, and was brought into the world of espionage where he expanded many of his already impressive skills as well as learning new ones. For several years thereafter, he performed numerous black ops missions for the good of the French people until he defied orders and rescued a comrade who had been sent on a suicide mission and had been captured. Disgusted with his superiors response to the situation, they heavily fined him and stripped him of rank while discharging his friend, Joseph left the government’s employ and became a mercenary.

Now selling his deadly skills to the highest bidder, Caliber travels all over the world doing the work that nobody else wants to.

Real Name: Cynthia "Cindy" Blake
Host Name: Kathryn Krantz
Height: 5’2”
Weight: Unknown
Hair: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue


Complications:
Crossed Wires: Electra is now more of a electrical being in possession of another person’s body, there are times that the unwilling(?) host regains control.

Enemy: Arc.

Power Loss: Water based attacks can short out Electra's powers.

Weakness: Electra takes an extra degree of damage against water based attacks.



Backgrounds: Cindy Blake always felt like her older brother Danny got more of their parents’ attention. In an effort to get some of that attention Cindy started to act out; doing things like drinking, dating the local "bad boys", staying out all night, arguing with her parents and so on.

Unfortunately, the elder Blakes decided it would be easier to send their wayward daughter to a scared straight boot camp program to solve her problems. While there Cindy was exposed to girls who had real problems and they showed their dislike for her immediately and severely; Cindy was beaten repeatedly and abused by her peers until she became like them - angry at the world and ready to lash out at anyone.

Once Cindy "graduated" from the boot camp and returned home her parents quickly learned that their daughter was beyond their control anymore and they kicked her out of the family home. Cindy's life on the streets was harder than her boot camp had been, there she at least had a roof over her head and 3 meals a day. On the streets she had to provide everything for herself since nobody else would, and to be able to afford the basics of life she ended up becoming a prostitute.

Cindy managed to support herself fairly well for a year and a half until one night a customer wanted more than she was willing to give. The man began to beat her, during that time all Cindy could think of was how her life would have been different if she had the power to protect herself from the other people who had hurt her in her life and that if she could just get him to stop then no else would ever make her do things she didn't want to or do these kinds of things to her ever again. Then Cindy felt a surging of energy inside her begin to build, and then suddenly she felt it leave her, and there was a crashing noise that sounded like thunder.

When Cindy opened her eyes, she saw the man who had been beating her lying on the floor dead, his skin burnt and almost melted looking - he had been electrocuted! Knowing that even in the dump motel she was in someone would come to check out the thunderous crash she had unleashed Cindy quickly gathered her things and left. Over the next few weeks she played with her powers to learn what she could do; she even went to the library to read all she could about lightning and its effects to better understand her powers.

Within a month Cindy had made herself a costume and began using her new powers to steal anything she wanted. Within five months she was living how she wanted, in the best hotels that money could buy and wearing all the designer clothing she could fit into her closet. She had even been considering visiting her folks and showing them how good she had ended up doing for herself without them and finally proving that she was the one they should have paid all the attention to, that she was the one that was special, not her brother Danny.

Then it happened, Cindy went to rob a bank in her criminal identity of Electra, and she ended up facing a man who was wearing a costume and wielding electrical powers similar to hers. Then when the man told her that she needed to drop the money and surrender Cindy couldn't believe it!!!! It was the voice of her brother, Danny!!! She knew it was him!!! How did he manage to have powers!!! Powers like hers!!! Cindy flew into a rage as she attacked her brother, not that it did her much good. Cindy hadn't had any resistance until that point in her crimes, and her theories of how some of her abilities would work didn't against a man with powers so similar to her own.

Cindy ended up getting arrested after that fight, revealing her identity which was a huge shock to her brother. Cindy decided that day that she would show her brother who was the most powerful between them without a doubt; vowing to one day drain all of his energy from his body and then she would have all of the power. That set the tone for almost all of the future fights between Electra and Arc - love, hate, tragedy and family sorrow.

That is until finally at one-point Electra was threatening a bus load of children and Arc was left with no other option but too completely overload her control of her powers. That blast left Electra in a coma from the seizure that was caused by that overload. For three years Electra was left in a private care hospital in that coma, until a young doctor decided to experiment with a theory she had about the body's own natural bioelectricity; draining large amounts of electricity from Electra and was able to endow herself with similar powers. Unfortunately, though along with that energy came Electra's personality and soon a new Electra was causing chaos around the city, even more deadly now that she had gained all of that doctor's knowledge of science and a far more detailed understanding of how her powers actually worked.

She learned that during her downtime that Arc had become a member of the Alliance, something she'd not expected from him. That led to Electra to ally herself with various foes of the Alliance members that mostly ended up going wrong and she was forced to flee the scene to keep her freedom. After several failures Electra decided to take things to a new level to make her brother pay for every wrong he’d done to her over the years; she stalked him to learn about his private life. After months of learning about her brother’s life Electra made her move – killing Arc’s girlfriend, Jenny, then leaving the body for brother with a handwritten note taking credit for the deed. Arc went after Electra in retaliation and during that fateful encounter he was forced to stop her from killing a bus full of children by overloading her with electrical energy that put her into a coma.

Cindy remained in that condition for years, kept under observation at Odyssey Technologies until a doctor came up with a theory that her bodies bioelectrical energy could be tapped into and used to awaken vegetative state coma patients. The first use of the procedure was a success - Kathryn Krantz had been in a non-responsive condition for almost five years, and after a few infusions of bioelectrical energy from Cindy she woke up. After weeks of testing it was determined that Kathryn had suffered no loss of memory or mental alertness she was released from care.

But all was not well as within a few days of returning home Kathryn began to have nightmares about being chased by a woman with an electric glowing face who wanted to be “let in”. Doctors told her it was just her mind adjusting from being in the vegetative state for so long and prescribed Hypnocil to suppress her dreams while she adjusted to the changes in her life. While the dreams stopped Kathryn’s personality began to slowly change – with her becoming more aggressive, outspoken, and confrontational which caused her family to become worried about their daughter and tried to stage an intervention only for the situation to quickly turn ugly. During the argument Kathryn manifested electrical manipulation abilities that were identical to Cindy’s and she used them to attack the Krantz family then make her escape.

Soon Electra made her return to the world, which brought her into conflict with Arc and he discovered that Cindy’s personality had overwritten Kathryn’s, allowing the villain to return. Once again the two siblings fought one another and Electra nearly won as she’d figured out several new applications of her powers that gave her an edge over her brother, but thankfully other members of the Alliance appeared on the scene to help their friend and together they were able to defeat the “new” Electra.

The biggest problem that this version of Electra brings is the fact that the Krantz family keeps filing legal motions to try separate their daughter from the electrical criminal; as Kathryn is another victim of Electra, though there are some people in law enforcement that consider her more of a semi-willing accomplice.

Real Name: Unknown
Height: 6’3”

Hair: Unknown
Eye Color: Unknown


Complications:
Motivation ~Mayhem & Murder: Jack O’ Knives greatly enjoys committing crimes, even killing.

Power Loss: If his Healing Factor is somehow nullified then Jack O’ Knives loses his Body Contortion power.


Background: The past of the man who calls himself Jack O’ Knives hasn’t been confirmed by C.A.S.T.L.E., but he has revealed parts of it to various heroes over the course of his criminal career; years ago he was a deeply religious teenager who saw his family die when their church bus collided with a tanker truck that was carrying some kind of chemical compound. Everyone aboard the bus was killed, even the boy who would become Jack O’ Knives, except he did not stay that way. Either the mental trauma of the event or the direct exposure to the chemical compound triggered the manifestation of his healing factor, and he soon walked away from the crash site without a scratch on him despite his being crushed, snapped, and broken only a short time before.

None the less, the wreck destroyed the boy’s belief in a rational universe and replaced it with the philosophy that life was meaningless and futile, that laws were lies. In the months that followed the future Jack O’ Knives learned how his powers improved his body and how to best use those improvements in his new endeavor as a criminal Alpha who indulged every whim and want, he has. He isn’t worried about putting other people in dangerous situations and often times make use of the fact that heroes are to gain a momentary advantage or to cover his escape.

Motivation ~Power: Bodycount believes that for every person he kills he is able to increase the effects his powers have.

Prejudice: Criminal Alpha.


Background: One of the many people to be caught in Black Sun’s Silver Storm, Brandon Cederick gained superhuman powers. As with most of the other Stormers, as those empowered by the Silver Storm are being called now, he was driven nearly out of his mind due to the pain of his empowerment and proceeded to go on a rampage until he was stopped by members of the Vanguard and the Alliance.

Unlike a few of the Stormers who were able to get away from the scene, Brandon was turned over to the custody of C.A.S.T.L.E. in order to understand how the Silver Storm empowered so many people in such drastic and different ways. Unfortunately, Black Sun raided the facility to free their newly empowered “brethren” to find their destiny in the world.

Brandon was among those who declined that group's offer of membership in order to pursue his own agenda - increasing his personal power as he believes that his powers are increased with every person he kills. As a result, Bodycount, as Brandon was named by the media has become one of the most feared criminal Alphas known. Luckily for society, he has been incarcerated at New Alcatraz for several years now following his last rampage, kept docile with regular injections of sedative medicines.

Real Name: Rebecca Knight
Height: 5’1”
Weight: 111 lbs
Hair: Black
Eye Color: Brown


Complications:
Motivation ~Money: Bloodborne uses her powers to earn money to support herself.

Prejudice: Criminal Alpha.


Background: How Rebecca Knight manifested her powers isn’t known, but her choice to use them for criminal ends isn’t – making her first appearance as the criminal Bloodborne, she used her powers to kill people for hire. This brought her into conflict with the masked crime fighter Argus, who struggled to cope against her unique powers though he would become accustomed to her style of fighting.

Bloodborne operated for several years, breaking out of prison several times before becoming part of the first group of Alpha criminals to be incarcerated in New Alcatraz. At some point Rebecca decided to retire from her lifestyle, likely due to the fact she’d become pregnant, and she quietly assumed a new identity upon her release from New Alcatraz. What she’s done since then isn’t known, but clearly she has settled into a mundane life.

Real Name: Ashley McIntosh
Height: 5'5"
Weight: 116 lbs
Hair: Red
Eye Color: Green (glow yellow when using powers)


Complications:
Motivation ~Rebellion: Sever fights against any form of law and order.

Prejudice: Criminal Alpha.



Background: One of the many people to be caught in Black Sun’s Silver Storm, Ashley McIntosh gained superhuman powers. As with most of the other Stormers, as those empowered by the Silver Storm are called, she was driven almost out of her mind from the pain of her empowerment and proceeded to go on a rampage until she was stopped by members of the Vanguard and the Alliance.

Unlike some of the Stormers who were able to get away from the scene, Ashley was turned over to C.A.S.T.L.E. in order to understand how the Silver Storm empowered so many people in such drastic and different ways. Unfortunately, Black Sun raided the facility to free their newly empowered “brethren” to find their destiny in the world.

In Ashley' s case she embraced her "new lease on life" as she greatly enjoyed using her destructive power and not being pushed around by anyone anymore and became a super villain. It should be pointed out that doctors believe the Silver Storm also caused massive personality changes in all of its victims as the vast majority of them have become criminals since their empowerment, citing Ashley as a prime example as before her empowerment she led a quiet, law-abiding life.

Real Name: Shane Jones
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 224 lbs
Hair: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue


Complications:
Disability: Without his cybernetics, Stronghold has no arms or legs.

Motivation ~Greed : Stronghold wants money, and is willing to break the law to get it.

Prejudice: Criminal Alpha.


Background: Shane Jones never stood out during high school except when he was on the football field where his natural size and aggression made him a star. So much so that he was snapped up by Ohio State when he graduated on a scholarship where his athletic talents made up for his scholastic deficiencies.

When he was eligible the NFL drafted him in the first round. In the pros Shane discovered that his talent was only enough to get him there, as he'd become lazy in his work and was considered to be something of a disappointment. This led to Shane becoming a sports "bad boy" who spent as much time on suspension as he did on the field. Soon Shane found himself developing a gambling habit that left him owing a massive debt that his bookie decided to make an example of by having both of his arms and legs broken. Unfortunately, Shame's injuries were so severe that his limbs had to be amputated.

Disappointed in his recovery options, Shane used his criminal contacts to find him something better. This led him to Dr. Prometheus who was testing the limits of cybernetic enhancement and grafted a pair of arms and legs, as well as some other “enhancements”, onto Shane then left him to his own devices. Now sporting obvious enhancements Shane couldn't resume his previous career and he again reached out to the underworld to support himself.

Donning a costume Shane named himself Stronghold and began his life as a super villain; working for anyone willing to pay him as well as committing robberies in between jobs. Now years later, Shane has fought a variety of heroes and was one of the first to be incarcerated in New Alcatraz. Currently he is there again, biding his time until he gets another opportunity to free himself and resume his criminal ways.

Real Name: Lawrence "Larry" Kane
Height: 6'8"
Weight: Unknown
Hair: None
Eye Color: LED Red


Complications:
Arrogance: Due to his vast intellect, he can underestimate others.

Motivation ~Destruction: Upgrading all organic life on Earth into artificial life forms.

Vulnerable: Magnetic effects.

Weakness: While Cerebron's outer shell is made of Mithral, his joints and internal parts are not, making them more susceptible to attacks.


Background: Lawrence "Larry" Kane built a robotic body for himself to escape the disease that plagued his organic body, but what he hadn't accounted for was the cyber-psychosis that came with transplanting his brain into an inorganic body. Left completely detached from humanity Larry renamed himself Cerebron and set to taking over the world so that he could "help" the rest of humanity "overcome" the failings of biology and become "perfect" like he was.

Despite his best efforts Cerebron has been opposed by nearly every incarnation of the Vanguard as well as the Alliance. At this point Cerebron is entirely artificial in nature as in the dawn of the 21st century he deduced that his failings were because of his organic brain and digitized his mind then uploaded it into his newest frame. Now able to create "fractions" of his consciousness to operate multiple bodies at once he has rededicated himself to overthrowing of all world.

Real Name: Corey Sing
Height: 5’8”
Weight: 152 lbs
Hair Color: Black

Complications:
Identity: Apex hides his true identity from the rest of the world to protect his family and friends.

Motivation ~Responsibility: Apex is motivated by the belief that with power comes responsibility.

Vulnerable: Apex is as vulnerable to magic as anyone else - he loses his ranks of Protection against magical-based attacks.

Weakness: Hassinite, the radiation this man-made element gives off saps Apex’s Strength and Powers, leaving them impaired, disabled, and eventually debilitated in terms of Strength and Power Effects.


Background: Corey Sing was exposed to a sister meteor of the one that empowered the Alpha criminal Atlas, luckily for the general public his personality was not drastically altered like Atlas’ had been and he sought to use his newly gained powers to help others. He quickly gained the attention of the Vanguard with his early heroic actions and was offered member-in-training status with the group to help him learn how to properly use his powers. Smartly realizing he could use any help he could get; Corey accepted the offer and spent just over a year and a half working with the Vanguard.

Recently he’s went onto reserve status with the group and moved to Capital City to focus on his personal life.

Real Name: Alton Creighton
Height: 5’10”
Weight: 170 lbs
Hair: Bald
Eye Color: Black


Complications:
I'm Too Old For This.....: Shadow has had a long career as a super villain, and has pretty much seen or done it all.

Motivation ~Greed: Shadow wants to make money, a lot of it, plain and simple.

The Big Score: Shadow is trying to pull one last, really big, heist to retire on.



Background: Alton Creighton was raised by his grandmother, as his parents died when he was very young, and the older woman spent the last of the family’s once formidable finances giving Alton the best of everything – from clothing, to food, and of course private schools. The problem was that Alton had become used to living that lifestyle that when he discovered the family fortune was nearly depleted, he liquidated what he could of the family estate after putting his grandmother in an elder care home then went about doing con-jobs to support himself.

At some point during that time Alton manifested his Alpha powers over darkness, although at that time he could only turn himself into a “living shadow”, but when he encountered Janus it was enough to allow him to hold his own against the masked adventurer. Over the years Alton developed his powers as much as he could, doing research on his own and constantly pushing his abilities to test their limits. At this point in his criminal career Alton has fought against multiple generations of the Vanguard as well as a several solo heroes, and to his credit he has spent very little time in New Alcatraz for his efforts.

Now in his forties, Alton is starting to feel the burden his lifestyle has put upon him and is trying to build up a sizable enough nest egg to fully “retire” from the business and quietly live his life in the luxury he feels he is due.

Real Name: Jake Malloy
Height: 5'11"
Weight: Varies
Hair: Blonde
Eye Color: Brown


Complications:
Accident: Sometimes Hydro has difficulty interacting with others/objects in a normal fashion due to his non-organic nature when using his powers.

Motivation ~Responsibility: Hydro feels that he needs to use his powers to help others.

Weakness: Hydro is vulnerable to effects that affect water.


Background: When he was sixteen years old Jake Malloy manifested his powers - to turn his body into one of the three forms of water (solid, liquid and gaseous). Keeping them a secret from his family and friends, he learned to control them and developed ways to use them as a hero because he was inspired by the stories about the Vanguard he was always reading.

Upon graduating high school Jake moved to New York City and began his plan to become a hero. So far he's made a name for himself as an up and coming hero who looks out for the man on the street, so much so that some of the members of the Vanguard have taken notice of him and are considering offering him a spot on the team.

Background: Exactly who wears the cowl of the Alpha criminal Timorus is a secret he has somehow managed to keep for a number of years, but none the less he is a force to be reckoned with thanks to his fear-inducing powers. His crimes never seem to have any rhyme or reason to them, at least to anyone else that is, as Timorus sees a grand design to his reigns of terror.
