Topic: Heartbreaker down!

In: Boards ► News ► Events ►Canada

Posted on August 18th, 2012:

Holy sh*t! The Guild made it official last night. In completely unknown circumstances, the body of Heartbreaker, aka Nikos Vasil, has been recovered from a country house near Montreal. Seven women were also found dead at the scene. A small group of unaffiliated paramilitaries and capes were guarding the house and have been detained on suspicion of master influence.

Stories here, here, here and here.

FUCK YES! He always said taking him out would lead to suicide bombings all across the country but there's been nothing. Was it all some bluff?

► Angel666

I'm inclined to just be grateful this was all taken care of. My niece got Heartbroken back in '05. Took basically her whole village with her when the authorities moved in. Eight casualties is ridiculously low, even accounting for the coming backlash.

► 10pin

Shit, Angel. Condolences. There's gotta be hundreds of people getting closure from this.

It's over.

► 10pin

Speaking of backlash, they're not talking about that at all. Rumours work suggest incidents have happened, but fewer than expected. How would we even know?

► homacker

Has anyone seen pics? I won't link them here, its graphic, but they're out there. Heartbreaker was mutilated. Pretty serious stuff. Definitely a murder, but he didn't have a kill order, so it was a vigilante. No word from Guild/PRT if they're looking for someone, no word on where the rest of the household has gone, not enough incidents to suggest they're all on the loose

Anyone else feel like something else is going on?

► Angel666

Like I said, I don't want to question it. I'm here to say, good riddance, let's focus on the lives he ruined now

► Viva_la_Alexandria

Stay strong, Angel666. Maybe unfollow this thread for ur wellbeing

10pin/homacker I get this is suspicious. i'm not sure tho. There was trouble in the city for the week or two before his death & Sunbeam from the Guild said she had some even earlier than that. She didn't say much but implied ~somebody~ intervened with what woulda been a snatch. This was planned.

Who could've beaten masters like that though? Dragon?

► NotGallant (Unverified Cape)

He had it coming we can all agree. One of his kids joined the fucking S9

► homacker

That's exactly my point – where are they?

They'd better be in good hands or some serious trouble is coming.

► SamVHB

Why not both?

Topic: New faces in Yellowknife

Two new sightings in Yellowknife:

• Benign rogue by the name of Soothe, has been touring hospitals. Striker: drains pain by touch. First spotted August 18th. All-white body suit, short silver cape, boots and mask. Clearly a home-made costume – her name is written in what looks like a silver marker. Guild are trying to make contact (statement here) but she's basically ignoring them.

• Indie villain. Unknown name. All black street clothes. Shaker/blaster (?), victims can't give any info except 'it hurts like hell' (story here). So far has been sighted on a couple robberies, some muggings.

OP That must be the lamest striker power ever

All I'm saying is there's a connection. Two capes showing up at the same time in a quiet city? Similar builds, opposite colour schemes, never speaking. My bet is on twins. Good twin, evil twin, yin and yang, right?

User received a temp ban for this post: do not speculate on the civilian identities of capes.

Dude you can't say that

Is pain really an emotion? /pedantry

I'm the shaker. I'm Fickle. And I'm not Heartbreaker's kid so shut up.

Oh hi! Nice username too haha


Replied on September 4th, 2012:

I dunno isn't it kind of disrespectful? Anyway, welcome Fickle! Why the choice of cape name? Is that a hint about your effects?

► Nevergreen

But what's your connection to soothe?

Private message from NarwhalOfficial (Verified Cape) (Guild):

NarwhalOfficial: Hi Fickle. Can we talk?

Private message from SamVHB:
