AN: At a reader's request I am finally cross-posting this from SB. Up until I've put this off mainly because I knew I was going to have issues with the formatting for this PHO Proluge. However given how many changes this AU has I couldn't just bump it to a later date as it is too important to laying out early changes.

Original AN: OMBC is a bit of a story concept of mine featuring an AU take on Worm. There will be numerous alterations, some of which will have Butterfly Effects with widespread repercussions throughout the story and even the world. In this AU rather than having QA for her shard, Taylor not only has a different shard that I am heavily borrowing inspiration and function from Wolverine/X-23 from X-Men. However this is not an actual crossover. Taylor is a Parahuman, not a Mutant.

Please note that while Taylor is the core focus around which the story revolves, however she is not the primary viewpoint which shifts from person to person periodically. Also the story features Taylor at its core but she is not the only point of focus and may actually have very little screen time depending on where in the story you are. Regardless everything being told does, or will eventually relate to her.

Anyways without further ado...

Topic: New Marche Cape?

In: Boards ► Places ► Brockton Bay ► General Discussion

Posted on August 3, 2009:

Now I know this being the Bay, new capes are bound to turn up all the time. However I saw someone who MAY have been a cape with some Marche muscle on the Boardwalk last night. I was closing up for the night at work and while I was locking up and walking to my car I saw some of the Marquis's people. Not really a surprise since I work on the Boardwalk and everyone knows that even the daytime guards all answer to Marquis, or at least they work for someone who does.

Anyways so I saw someone new. No idea who she was, but she's just walking down the street. Alone, wearing a full face mask. Her hair was free, this mask is just covering her full face. The thing is black with a white skull on the front.

As for the rest of her outfit I have to say she wasn't hiding much. She was tall but slim, I'd say probably college or high school aged. Toned like an athlete and I could tell she was showing more skin than most Capes usually do. I mean she was covered up fairly well, nothing was risque or anything.

Boots, looked like combat or something like it, black pants, black tee shirt, and finger-less gloves that extended all the way up to just before her elbow, all black. Heck if it wasn't for the mask I wouldn't think she's a cape at all given how average it looked.

Normally Capes avoid Marquis' territory and with good reason, but this one is just walking down like she belongs there. And some of the night shift Boardwalk security guards and didn't move to stop her or anything. Given that those guys work for the Marquis, or atleast someone who answers to him, I find that kinda suspicious.

Anyone know anything about this girl?

Oooh a hot new chick cape? Sure I'll bite. No idea who she is though.

OP is right. Marquis usually runs a real tight ship from everything I know. He's just letting someone walk around? This is strange.

Holy shit I just saw this chick myself! She's kinda hot! Like in a predator kinda way. The way she's moving is kinda scary, like she's just ready for a fight.

Void if you're close enough to a cape that they can see you back, you are even dumber than normal. You have no idea if they are dangerous or not.

Void you are a very brave or very foolish man. She's looking right at you! Even if you are HOPEFULLY zoomed in by a lot to take the picture. Still I see what the OP was saying. If you take away that face mask, that could be an entirely ordinary outfit anyone would wear... well not anyone but not that strange either.

Void, congratulations on being helpful to a thread for a change!

In response to the picture I am able to confirm that this is a Cape. While we don't have any interactions on file or even a name, there is surveillance footage showing her in New Orleans when Leviathan attacked in 2008.

Nothing is known about her, and the only record we even have of her is three seconds where she was on Armsmaster's helmet camera footage. She appeared to be attempting to attack Leviathan in that time before being hit by the Endbringer and removed from the camera footage.

Nothing is currently known about her. We did not even know if she survived up until now though no body matching her was ever found. Since she did survive we are tentatively giving her a Brute rating.

Again nothing is known about this Cape. Civilians are encouraged to not make contact and stay a safe distance from her. Please do not engage her.

Lets just all agree that anyone who can survive a hit from Leviathan is not someone to casually dismiss. Please be safe and don't provoke the strange cape we know nothing about.

Topic: Hookwolf Dogfight Ring Busted/Where is Cricket?

Two nights ago BBPD responded to a 911 Call. The location led them to an illegal dog fighting ring. PRT and Protectorate forces responded when Hookwolf was sighted.

Several members of BBPD are still in the hospital in critical condition at this time.

The reason I post this is that this is the third incident in the last month that Cricket has not been sighted with Hookwolf. Normally those two are always together. Does anyone have any idea where Cricket is?

I don't have any idea but this isn't the first disappearance the E88 has had. Purity, Night and Fog, haven't been seen for several months now. And Rune hasn't been reported in sightings since the start of Summer. Now Cricket.

Is the E88 trying something new? Or are we getting lucky and everyone in there is realizing that Racism is actually bad?!

While that would be awesome I don't see it likely. All Father ran a tight ship and Kaiser has been doing the same ever since.

This thread is for discussion of the newest Ward in Brockton Bay. Glory Girl was just revealed in a press conference at the PRT building. So far from what little she revealed she is an Alexandria Package Brute.

Please keep the discussion focused on Glory. Discussion of the Wards ENE should be in the Wards ENE thread.

Glory Girl would you like to tell us anything about yourself? I won't ask about your powers since you are an Alexandria Package.

Everyone thank you for such a warm welcome to the Wards. I'm very happy to be working with all my fellow Heroes. Anyways a bit about myself... I can tell you that I a second-gen Cape. My parents were members of the Brockton Bay Brigade. And while I have no intentions of dying. I do intend to stand up and give my everything to defend this city just like they did.

Oh wow... your parents were in the Brigade? I'm so sorry for your loss. I know it was over a decade ago now that they were killed but I'm sorry to hear that.

► OldManStan
Replied on August 5, 2009:

While your family were certainly heroes, and their sacrifice is worth of being honored. Lets not forget that the reason they died in the first place was because they broke the Unwritten Rules. If they hadn't pushed him, Marquis wouldn't have killed them.

Hey what the heck Stan! Her parents were heroes, and besides. If the Heroes would stop wearing kids gloves with the Villains in the Bay, maybe this city wouldn't be the way it is! The Brigade may have failed and died for it, but they had the right idea! Gloary Girl I hope you remember what your parents stood for and never forget it!
