    Okay, /tg/. Today we're going to create a city, along with several superheroes and villains and some important non-powered figures who live there.

    The time is modern-day. The location is somewhere on the East Coast in the United States. The city is the fourth largest in North America.

    Everything goes, and an idea will only be rejected if it contradicts something prior or /tg/ as a whole seems to hate it.

    Popo's Pizza, the most popular pizza restaurant in the city, is actually both a restaurant and a bar. They never open until after sundown 6 nights a week, and the owner doesn't seem to have aged a day since she opened the place almost twenty years ago. Given the schedule, and her remarkably youthful appearance, rumors abound that she's a vampire.

    In reality, she has access to the fountain of youth, but it only produces enough water to keep one person young. So she drinks from the water and keeps the restaurant open at night in order TO create the impression that she's a vampire, so no one gets suspicious and starts snooping around. She doesn't want to lose access to that water.

    Plus, the vampire thing drives up publicity.

    The mayor is, in actuality, a bumbling fool, but seems to have a talent for taking credit for others' good ideas and actions.

    His current schtick is that 'his' economic policies (they probably aren't his) are what attracts so many heroes to the town, and that 'his' forward-thinking stance on costumed vigilantes has allowed for lots of budget cuts on law enforcement.*

    * really, his ill-advised budget cuts on law enforcement created the need for costumed vigilantes.

    The mayor's not a bad person, he's just a fucking idiot.

    The police chief has tried to get superheroes to bust up unions.

    There is also rumored to be one shapeshifter who works as an undercover agent. He's a real sleazeball, and it's likely that he has children with several activists from various groups. He pays no child support, and abandoned the children as soon as either his cover was blown or he completed a mission.

    a particularly silver-tongued villain could be a power behind the throne, convincing the mayor to make even more disastrous decisions, decisions that, while not obviously related result in said villain being the de-facto ruler of the city.

    either that, or convince the mayor to make dumb decisions and then run against him the next election. The people, fed up with the mayor's dumb ideas may actually end up electing the villain (and said villain may not even have a history before this).

    The city is coastal. There is an adults only cruise that goes out to sea for four or five days at a time and then returns. While it's out there, what occurs can only be described as a drug-addled orgy in which metahumans (male and female) who work for the cruise line use their powers to expose non-metas to experiences that can be had nowhere else.

    Captain Earth is the most powerful superhero the world has ever known. He's also shockingly blunt about having no desire to help the common person with common problems. He'll walk past an old lady being mugged and just say "I'm off duty." No one dares argue with him about it, because next time an alien invasion is about to happen, he'll be the only one they can turn to.

    Golden Age heroes, kind of powerful, with mostly mundane gangsters etc. as their foes?

    Silver Age powerhouses with mostly costumed supervillains as their foes, fairly obvious black/white morals abound?

    Watchmen/dark heroes who may not even be "heroes" in the sense of the word? Flawed champions being the order of the day?

    Dark Knight, some flair but with a more realistic/political edge? Powers are toned/refined into a less flashy manner?

    One of the few competent departments in the city is Water and Power. Their ceaseless dedication to providing clean water and cheap power to even the poorest parts of the city is truly inspirational, and the department's offices are littered with awards and keys to the city.

    However, the entire operation is built on hiding key facts about he city, such as the reason local communities were so willing to incorporate themselves into the city, and why the old town's tomato grove disappeared (literally) overnight. At the center of all of these is Hollis Peabody, the first Director of Water and Power. He was an honest, hard working man, but towards the end of his life, he became a recluse and made deals with several shady organizations to turn D&P into what it is today.

    Whatever Peabody tapped into in those days, it seems to be running out as the price of electricity is slowly rising, a fact D&P will cover up at all costs.

    An evil villain named Doctor Mechllific, while he was in his final battle against his superheroic nemesis, unleashed his final plan on the world. A nano-bot virus of his creation, that could infect and transform people into robots.

    Considering he was a known misogynist in life, there's little surprise that his virus is primarily programmed to infect women. Those who become infected showed signs of rigid, lateral thinking and motions until eventually becoming humanoid robots of some sort. The virus had its heyday 20 years ago when 50% of the city's female population (including a sizable superheroine population) were all mechanized and proceeded to follow out Doctor Mechllific's final orders: Avenge his death.

    Luckily, an anti-virus was found and the population has since completely recovered, with only a few women showing any signs or long-term effects before being retconned. However, little do the people know that the virus did not "die". It simply went dormant... and started to change. What new and horrific form will it take? WHO KNOWS!?

    Deep underneath the city, in his underground super lair, a nefarious villain is plotting to take over Tall Grove City (if a city name hasn't already been said by the time this gets posted), none other than the Mutant Mole!
    Previously a biologist at Tall grove university, he was bitten by a radioactive mole and it's DNA was infused with him, giving him the ability to command Moles and other burrowing rodents! After two months in prison for attempted robbery with ten regular ground moles, which was stopped by a very confused super hero, The Sewer Rat, he stopped for a month to think about his life.
    But then he unearthed a plan, a plan to genetically modify moles to make giant mutant creatures that could burrow through solid steel! Creatures that he would command to claim his rightful place as Ruler of Tall Grove City! And to put the infamous Sewer Rat six feet under!

    Some of the city's resident villains are targeted by an entity they've nicknamed "The Remorse" in their cliques.

    No one really knows who or what it is, what are its motivations, how it chooses its targets. Is it fighting for justice or is it another villain trying to remove the competition? Is it even a single being or an organization?

    All they know about it comes from common patterns in its target's nightmares, involving a highly detailed role reversal of the latest crime - in which the villain plays the role of the victim - and the few suicides of the weakest-willed villains that happened to be its victims.

    All of them have: "I REGRET EVERYTHING" written in their notes.

    The villians are the only ones with superpowers, while the heroes are just human. They can be smart, strong, etc, but just human.

    Imagine a guerilla war of human heroes vs. villainous super villains, where the Humans heroes are treated as outcasts and scorned because the major media networks do not want to get destroyed/killed by the all powerful supervillains.

    Jimmy Peeverson is a dorky dude with a heart of gold. He wishes he could do the kind of good that superheroes can, but he is by no means a metahuman. He won't be a powerless vigilante, as he is well aware his scrawny data-clerk frame wouldn't last ten minutes on the street.
    All he wants is to fly alongside the greats and help people.

    An enterprising villain could offer Jimmy a synthetic version of metahuman powers, a Faustian deal, if you will.
    Jimmy wouldn't associate with a known villain or criminal, but being the innocent, and frankly, sometimes naive guy he is, Mr. Peeverson could be tricked with a few honeyed words.

    possible compromise:
    there are noble metahumans, but the first metahumans the city encountered were not heroes, but villains, leaving a bad taste in the public's mouth.

    any who want to be a heroic metahuman face unending scrutiny and media bias, as well as villains working to ensure that their plans are not ruined by these enterprising do-gooders, possibly by reinforcing said popular perception.

    Kind of like how J. Jonah Jameson views Spiderman. "he *must* be up to something!" "why's he wearing a mask, what's he got to hide?"

    Jacob Hallock, a natural recluse even when a normal human, signed up for a secret military program run by H.A.N.D. to make a super steroid, by distilling the wonder element: Tolpium. Despite the program having a 99% mortality rate, Hallock's natural determination and strength made him the prime candidate for the prototype run, but at the cost of various devices having to be placed in his body to administer and regulate the amount of Tolpium in his bloodstream. Soon after, Tolpium was purified and made easily administered and produced, Hallock was thrown out into the cold, a relic that was supposed to die. But he refused to give up that easily: he snuck back into the facility and stole the plans for the chemicals he needed, and a little spending money too.
    Frantic to cover up their tracks, H.A.N.D. sent their best troops after Hallock, but he retreated into the depths of the sewers, never to be seen again.

    Months later, the media was ablaze with confusion from the appearance of a new meta human, participating in both petty crimes and beating up big criminals. Due to his assumed subterranean home, they named him: The Sewer Rat!

    The city also happens to exist at a nexus of time, if that makes any sense. Nobody really knows how or why, but if certain conditions are met then people from the past/future can be teleported inside.

    There are, however, time barriers associated with these portals. A superhero can only travel back in time to before 1900, and he can only move forward in time to some time after the year 2100, and anyone between or in those barriers cannot enter into this city's moment.

    This means that while a super could theoretically go back in time and save George Washington from a supervillain who shouldn't be there. He couldn't go back in time and stop his parents from being shot on that cold alleyway.

    Fine, I give you a villain known as "The End"

    He only targets cops and other heroes, and manages to kill every single one he hunts for. His style of murder is always variable. He has killed using poison, knives, sniper rifles, guns, his fists, bombs, etc.

    His last victim was a superhero with super hearing, sight, speed, strength, intelligence, and ability to fly. He was killed because The End tapped into the cities massive electrical grid and electrocuted him to death, though medical reports said it took an hour for him to die. Police responders and other heroes tried to help, but were repulsed by The Ends tactical/strategic ability.

    Some experts believe he has had military training. His garb is similar to the picture, with a black skull covering the red mask.

    There's a local cult of teenagers (without powers) trying to become superheroes. It is fairly typical and acceptable (at least among teens) to dress like a hero and try to fight crime. This, sadly, ends in many deaths.

    Illicit corporations make huge profits off of crime organizations in the cities. The truth is that they started the organizations to create a market for their goods.

    The money moves like this: Corporations create and fund (initially) crime organizations. Organizations buy weapons from corporations, do crime to fund themselves. Corporations profit, expand.

    There's TV shows about superheros.
    Some of the superpowered ones don their costumes, full of sponsors and then go on standby until there's a major crime.
    Then the show starts, the heroes competing against each other to collect points for stuff like being the first at the scene or being the one to catch the villain.
    Every season the hero with the most points becomes King of Heroes and thus earns more money by being more popular.

    Yes, this is stolen from Tiger & Bunny. I wish the show wouldn't have disregarded that part of the setting in the second half.

    The city, Astrum City, was founded in 1803 when a spaceship crashed near a caravan of settlers. Upon investigation of the craft they found 3 humanoid aliens inside. The male died in the crash and the female was gravely injured but the child was mostly unharmed. The settlers took in the survivors and nursed them back to health under. Unable to move with the wounded they decided to set up their town around the crash site. The female, Eliel, told the settlers about the destruction of her planet and how she, Panul her husband, and Orson their child came to Earth. Eliel and her child quickly became excepted when it was revealed that she was a healer and could treat even the most serious of illness and injuries. As Orson grew so did his strength which he used often to help the town. 15 years after the crash Astrum was a major center of trade with a population of over 6000. Orson would go on to preform many heroic deeds and is referred to as the First Hero. He died in 1867 stopping the same cosmic force that destroyed his home planet.

    Lady Machina is city's most renowned tech expert and device builder. She's come up with most of the city's super-powered devices and abilities and is a regular on many superhero teams.

    She's a cyborg with a cheerful disposition and a happy-go-lucky attitude. Although her back-story is... suspect. Mostly because whenever people ask "How did you wind up this way?" and expect some horrible back-story of how she was brutalized or injured she gives the exact same response.

    Metahuman: Charles H. White

    Of course, this is not his real name. He works primarily as a musician, but actually came to this city in order to get justice/revenge on a man who murdered his parents: a superhero named "The Patriot". While they lived peaceful lives, both of his parents had sympathies for "anti-American" values; communism and nazist fascism. In widely-cited media reports, The Patriot killed them in order to "prevent a large-scale terrorist attack" in spite of their old age. In reality, their unusual political positions simply made it so they were deemed worthy of being "purged"

    Charles has two important abilities. First of all, as a highly skilled keyboardist, he is able to manipulate the emotions of others, but little known to anyone, he actually has the supernatural ability to control other beings throughly by making music. He also has the ability to temporarily negate all superpowers/supernatural things by projecting his will. He is not aware of this, but merely doesn't believe in "superpowers" or any of the things he can negate. Of course, this ability does not affect how his music affects others (he can't 'uncontrol' people using it).

    Of course, Charles is an atheist, and harbors a deep hatred towards The Patriot, who openly vows to fight for a "Pure, clear, and Christian America".

    He makes music wherever he can find work, even sometimes at Popo's Pizza. Charles is also a night-owl and does not like to go out at night.

    Several villains have been rising up into existence, all of whom have devoted themselves to defeating the Patriot, but in the end, all of them did so after hearing a performance by Charles H. White.

    Err correcting Charles' article: he doesn't like going out during the day.

    Sometimes people will go and listen to his performance, purely thinking that they are just going to have a fun time, but they end up being manipulated into following his desires, without even knowing it most of the time. Naturally, they will do what Charles wants purely out of emotion, but most will try to rationalise it somehow.

    There is a group of supervillains out to kill/murder The Patriot and the mayor, who do so only because they heard Mr. White's performances.

    His playing will only cause more disruption and conflict within the city, as he becomes more famous and more aware of the events within. Charles also does not believe in anything supernatural, and believes that "superheroes" and "supervillains" are all fake, so he has also affected people into disliking such individuals.

    Eschaton's an unusual hero. He's of cosmic power level, can manipulate time, space, and the four fundamental forces... and spends his time teaching neighbourhood children the joys of reading.

    He clames to be the end of the universe itself. The final heat-death of galaxies, and the horseman of eternity. He just knows he has millions of years before he's called upon to do that, so until then spends his time doing odd jobs every few centuries.

    The one thing he does take exception to is villains trying to cause the end of the universe. Anyone trying disrupt reality, create galaxy destroying black holes, or kill everyone, thus causing the universe to collapse from lack of observers tends to attract his ire.
    Anyone else is fine though, some villains suspect he really just doesn't want to do any work, and so tries to prevent them from starting the end of all things so he can spent time "goofing off".

    There is a hero that all enemies to justice and kindness fear. They whisper in dark places, but he manages to hear them, and strike.

    Enter Hobo Dan the Magic Man.

    With his patchwork trenchcoat of a thousand secrets (some kids shouldn't ask about) he threatens all evil doers with his might. Once he opens his trenchcoat, a blinding flash hits all evildoers in a city block radius, announcing his presence. But watch out for when he reaches into his coat, for it contains all that he might need.

    The opener of reality is one such weapon. Made to look like a can-opener, he can cut open entrances in walls, vaults, cars, and even indestructible metals. However, he can't open containers holding food, so he has to use a regular can opener for this.

    The next weapon is his beanie of fortitude, which protects his head against all attacks and gives him super intelligence. However, it also makes him slightly crazed. His gloves of quickening allow his hands to move at superhuman speeds, though he mostly uses these to keep himself warm on cold nights.

    He rides into battle with his beautiful steed, a shopping cart powered by an electrical engine. However, it contains the spirit of a faerie from another world, though only crazies can talk to her.

    He can also manipulate pigeons and rats to do his will, though it's pretty nonsensical most of the time.

    There's a small dive in downtown that's simply called Mister's. It's run by an ex-villain, Mr. Master, one of the worst of the worst, or at least he was twenty years ago. He's still a dab hand with hypnosis, but nowadays he mostly uses it to subtly steer the common folk away from his establishment. It's become one of the more well-frequented bars for the retired and grumpy old supers, and woe to any troublemakers disturbing their respite.

    His enemy. The one who can never seem to beat? The moriarty to his holmes?

    It's none other than vile bob the rich snob.

    Everyday they pass each other, though neither knows who the other is. Bob constantly eats food in front of hobo Dan, and gives him monopoly money which, the crazed crusader accepts, soon turns out to be fake.

    His powers? He can manipulate currency and anything of value. His corporate suit actually doubles as both a power amplifier and a physical amplifier as well. However, he has only one weakness.

    Whenever he goes near a charity organization or a soup kitchen, he becomes as weak and helpless as a kitten. Thus, his crusade to end all of them puts him at odds with hobo Dan, an eternal struggle which will never cease.

    Junkyard. He may not have much in the way of brains, but he's strong, tough, and can duct tape/rivet/weld just about anything into low-tech crimefighting gear.

    He wears either a bright yellow hardhat and armor made of discarded steel belted tires, or scap metal armor and a welding mask.

    Arthur Stoltz is a man with an unyielding passion for life, colorful and vibrant life. Visitors to Tall Grove (I'm using that since it was mentioned first, Astrum could be a neighboring city) are usually acquainted to him as a talented artist peddling his wares on the city's famed Crossroads Square. Those who live in the city keep a close eye on him and a wide berth. Arthur, known as the Painter to the heroes and villains, meta and otherwise, of the city, is capable of bringing his painted creations to life. The ability to alter reality is highly prized, especially since his loyalties can sway either way: all Arthur cares about is bringing vivacity to the city, more than willing to work for a villain wanting to spice things up as well as a hero wanting to lift the city out of the occasional bouts of darkness.

    One thing is true with the Painter: Be glad when he's on your side, and fear him when he changes his mind.

    Fuck yeah, this setting is awesome!

    As for the villain bar:
    It's owned by a devil. He made a contract with a group of five teenagers who were fated to clean the world from supervillains, which they didn't know:
    You get superpowers from me and are allowed to fight crime and be awesome. In exchange, I'll own a few save havens which no superhero might endanger - Be it through destruction, waiting outside for customers or by filling the bar with superheroes. You may come for a drink, though.

    And so we got a few save places for supervillains to drink and scheme and create alliances. Sometimes superheroes go there for investigations or for teaming up with villains against other villains, but due to the "you can't fill the place with superheroes" rule, the majority of customers will always be villains.

    I like that Domino Mask got drawn, even though that hero got only a passing mention. In light of that, I'd like to expand on the fluff for DM.

    A hero with an obscure past, Domino Mask is a high-profile criminal investigator. An androgynous figure hiding a multitude of gadgets and advanced weaponry within a voluminous trenchcoat, the hero goes to great length to obscure his (or her) identity, using a vocal scrambler to hide their true voice and never revealing their gender to the public and fellow heroes (it's assumed that DM does this out of fear of retaliation - he/she probably has a family that they want to protect). Domino Mask has no metahuman powers, except for an above-average sharp mind and deductive ability, supplemented with criminological tools such as handheld fingerprint scanners and DNA analysis kits. DM appears to have a background in law enforcement or at least an obsessive interest in the topic; perhaps he/she is a former rich kid who made "supering" into more than a passing hobby? In any case, DM is one of the more famous freelance detectives in Tall Grove.

    A new super villain:


    Once a poor cocaine farmer, he emigrated to Tall Grove to become a Cocaine Cowboy, a mafia gun runner. One day, he was chased by the police and attempted an escape, however the cops shot him. Reeling from the wound, he stumbled into a side-alley. There, he encountered a mask, not unlike the Aztec ones of old, beckoning him. Slowly, Monty Zuma felt the need to put it on.

    Visions of empires, blood, pestilence and jungle, of 500 years of history flowed into him at one moment. At that point, he gained the consience of Montezuma, the strength of a Jaguar warrior and the dexterity of a Jackal, the medicine knowledge of an entire people.

    Dodging the police, he survived only though sheer strength, eventually using herbs from a local market to heal himself. Soon after, he began muscling in on the cocaine market, donning Jaguar claws. A hall mark of his crimes was the torn out heart of his victim.

    >Hans Stockman is an average man of indiscriminately European descent. He hasn't super strength or super speed. But he does carry a briefcase. If something were to fall into this briefcase, Hans would be able to pull forth as many copies of the item as he likes, until something else were to be put onto the briefcase. Then, the briefcase would be able to copy that. Curiously, Hans can not do this trick without a briefcase, and the case cannot do this without Hans. Villains, understandably, find him to be a very useful person.

    I can just see him calmly strolling towards a firefight, pulling out infinite guns or grenades.

    An extraterrestrial noble tasked with the subjugation of Earth, Atropos is not happy that the planet has managed to successfully resist his invasion plans. His fleet forced back, his troops routed, he has become the laughing stock of the court in the mighty Ciin Galactic Empire, Atropos is currently in the process of negotiating with some major supervillain groups in order to gain at least nominal control of Earth, with the metahuman villains acting as his "viceroys" or governors.

    The people on Mars are dicks.
    They hide themselves, reprogram Mars rovers and send people to earth to dick around and do weird experiments.
    The only reason why they don't do any major damage is because of Captain Tinfoil. His tinfoil hat gives him the ability to detect any Martians on planet Earth.
    Unfortunately, that's his only superpower. And most of the heroes capable of helping him are dicks.
    So the Martians are free to dick around as long as they don't do major damage - Because then they'd be invading the turf of Earth's superheroes.

    Muscleman is a name that would suggest super-strength, a brick with a weightlifting obsession.
    However, the reality is far more horrifying.
    Marcell Mann was a common thief, who happened to steal some special chemicals from a research lab.
    These gave him superspeed, however, so eager he was to test it, he didn't wait for all the effects to kick in.
    Notably, for his skin to become immune to friction. The first time he used his powers, his entire body burst into flames as the outer layer of skin turned to ash.
    In a dubious benefit, his muscles became indestructable, and so he survived.
    He's now super fast, in incredible pain, and a horrific freak.
    He speeds around the city, breaking into medical facilities, or stealing things for the supervillain doctors, in the vain hope someone might discover a cure.
    Until then his screams of agony acompany a red blur comitting crimes.

    Well in russian verb "to sausage" (roughly translating) is slang for "party hard". Also is used to describe anything that requires a lot of motoric activity.

    I can see this as being a part of the /co/'s Victory universe.

    Remember how the city makes money off superheros?

    Of the superhero competitions? Well, representatives from all over the world flock to Tall Grove every four years to see who is the best hero.


    Captain Britain and Union Jack (cape heroes, Captain Britain is a Falklands veteran)

    Panzerfaust (human in boxy mech suit, can turn his arms into a 88mm gun)

    Oedipus (clever motherfucker, blind)

    Perun (Baltic/Slavic God of Lightning)

    Gaius (TACTICAL GENIUS, lack of scruples)

    The Knight (Over-the-top chivalry, gatling-lance)

    Also, combat tournaments of superheroes.
    They are put into classes - Stuff like "flying bricks" or maybe broader descriptors allowing for a balanced matchup.

    Anti-hero Vermillion, a man who started out his days as a young man full of sadness and depression, in debt, his parents dead. He shot himself in his lonely apartment. He went to Hell, and after many years of being tortured, escaped while a great battle was raging. He took with him demonic armor and a sword. He emerged from the hellportal outside a city in the suburbs. Years of torture have left his skin pale, scarred, and his hair white. While walking the streets one night, he was assaulted by a gang, and after taking down two, he was shot dead by a third, and was sent back to Hell. The Lord of Hell saw him and made him his Hellish Assassin, sending him to the surface to take on whatever is there. After a few kills, Vermillion destroyed his bonds with Hell, and is now on the run from the demons. He now enters this city, looking for a new start...

    Bonus points if he just thinks he's free of Hell and is actually doing the Devil's bidding unwittingly.

    He can't enter the Safe Havens, though.
    The devil that owns them would just force him back into hell.

    We got a lot of activity from devils in this setting, what about angels? Any of those active here?
    >> Anonymous 02/13/12(Mon)18:36 No.17934822
    Yeah, he's constantly on the run from everyone, has no way to hide and in the end, this is exactly what he's supposed to do.
    Being a murder hobo makes you more ruthless and is a good motivator for kills.

    Jesus sometimes chills in the devil's bar.
    He doesn't interfere with anything though.
    Hell and Heaven have trade relations and God and Satan are pals. They basically dick around and make a contest of tempting mortals, etc. The stuff you already know from the bible.

    The angels are pissed, but are only allowed to act in case of hell trying to invade earth. Or if some aliens try to kill everyone.

    There actually is an Angel hanging around.

    A Seraph, he resembles a snake made of fire, covered with eyes.

    He keeps trying to save lives, but every time he does so, people get scared out of their wits.

    Many superheroes are after the supposed villain that's become known by the local press as "The Searing Serpent"

    Terry 'that drunk bastard' Fenk

    Terry is the laughingstock of Tall Groves - nobody respects him, nobody listens to him, and some even openly ridicule him.

    A skinny drunk, Terry barely makes enough money for rent, not to mention funding his supply of shitty liquor.

    The thing is, when Terry's drunk, things just work for him. In a sense.

    Lost something? Terry'll find your keys, in the middle of the night, in a snowbank. After 4 seconds. He throws them to you, slips on the ice, and puts an arm through your front window.

    He swings around the city, in yellow spandex and white mask, with his grappling hook either fighting crime or aiding criminals, depending on his mood. His power is the creation of any device he has handled which he can visualise out of thin air, including rocket launchers, machine guns, keys and hot dogs. But, while they are comprised of a strange energy (which Danger refers to as "Danergy") which allows them to function as they did in reality, if they leave Danger's hands they vanish. So, Danger has to function with baseball bats and planks of wood, as any projectile vanishes as soon as it leave contact with the weapon.

    He seems to be sustained by the this "Danergy", so he spends all his time either goofing off or actions which he terms as "funny". They rarely are.

    Dirty Money - A rather slovenly tycoon with ties to organized crime, who only loves money. He even showers with money, much to the detriment of his hygiene, but he's so rich that he'll ruin anyone who says anything about his smell.

    Redd Cent - Small and ruddy, light-fingered Redd Cent is an expert confidence trickster, smooth-talker and a fairly gifted criminal mind in his own right. He serves as the mouthpiece of Dirty Money for those occasions which require an elegance that can't be managed by the boorish billionaire.

    Wooden Nichols - Dirty Money's choice enforcer, he is a lanky man with a wooden arm. The wooden arm conceals an expertly crafted, expertly concealed firearm constructed of wood and ceramic.

    The Fin - A hulking bruiser who used to be in a freak show, he was born with superficial gills, pointed teeth, gill-like flaps of skin, and webbed digits. Though slow of mind, he is totally loyal to Dirty Money and a powerful foe when enraged who does not shy away from killing.
