The Peace Killers
Find the source of the quantum array weapons
Reports from our people and from the Warshades we keep in contact with have confirmed that someone has been supplying the city's criminal organizations with new weapons designed specifically to harm us, and empowered mercenaries whose abilities are inimical to our existence. It is imperative that we discover who is supplying these Quantum Array weapons and why.
I have received a lead from friends on the police force that the Skulls have just recieved a shipment of these weapons. Finding this shipment could be the first step in finding the source of these weapons.
I am sending you to a small cavern hideout owned by the Skulls. Your goal will be to confront Wrack, a well-connected Lieutenant in the Skulls who has been talking about the new weapons he is about to receive. Get what information you can from him, and we will proceed from there.
Cavern @ 'The Hollows' (Hellions,Skulls)
You enter the cavern with some sense of dread. You can't be sure whether or not Wrack's bragging about these new weapons was true.
Objective: After defeating Wrack and his underlings, they were more than willing to talk.
After you defeated him, the Skull Bone daddy called Wrack told you:
'Yeah, we gots all the quantum guns we need. We have 'em stored up at a warehouse we got squared away. We Skulls will be tops when we get 'em onto the street. When we have that kind of protection, you freaks will have to go beat on the Hellions. So the way I figure it, we win!'
With a bit more persuasion, it wasn't difficult to get him to tell you where the warehouse was located.
Mission Complete: You got the information you were looking for from Wrack's group.
This information will certainly be helpful to us. Now that we know where the Skulls' new shipment of quantum array weapons are waiting, the next move will be to take them out.
Capture the shipment of armaments before they hit the streets of the city
Since you discovered the location where the Skulls are storing their cahces of these new weapons, it is only right that the honour of taking those weapons from our enemies goes to you as well.
You will need to defeat all of the foes protecting the warehouse where the weapons are being kept. The Skulls keep several of the doors locked at all times, so you will need to defeat guards to find keys in order to progress.
This warehouse is in remarkably good shape for a Skulls hang out. They must not have been here long.
Objective: You find a set of keys on one of the fallen foes.
Objective: This crate is full of deadly Quantum Array weapons
Objective: You find a set of security keys on one of the fallen foes.
Objective: One of the defeated Hellions had some information on him.
One of the defeated Hellions told you:
'This whole thing's a waste of our time. We have our own shipment of quantum array guns comin gin after we finish the deal. I don't even know why they sent me here. Unless they want to get rid of me because I'm getting too powerful! That's it! Those jerks! Well, I'll show them! I'll tell you where the deal's going down, Hero. That'll teach them not to mess with my power!'
The information you received may be accurate, but you need to finish this mission first.
Mission Complete: You have secured the shipment of Quantum Array weapons.
Securing that shipment of wuantum array weapons will certainly be a great help to all of us. What may be even more important, though is discovering that upcoming deal the Outcasts are making for more of these weapons. It may be a lead to help discover where they are coming from.
Stop the Hellions' arms deal and find out where the Quantum Array weapons are coming from
As you discovered, the Hellions, like all the gangs and villains in the city, seek their own source of quantum weapons. You have already proven your ability to handle these situations against the Skulls, and you were the one who discovered the deal. It's time to continue the investigation, stop the deal, and find out where these weapons are coming from.
Though the majority of foes you'll face on this misison will be Hellions, your primary goal will be to find out who they are meeting with to get these weapons. Whoever this source may be, you must keep word of your investigation from getting back to them, so you will need to defeat or capture all of the enemies at the meeting.
This old office used to be an insurance brokerage. Very different kinds of deals are being brokered here today.
Objective: One of the defeated Council soldiers had some information on him.
Mission Complete: You defeated all of the Hellions, and found a clue on one of th Council soldiers.
So, the Hellions were dealing with the Council. It's not quite absolute proof that the Council are the ones supplying these quantum array weapons, but it's close. From the information you found, it looks like they're running wuality tests on a new shipment of these guns. That will be the next place ot investigate.
Intercept the quantum array weapon shipment undergoing testing
The information you found tells us that the Council is testinf a shipment of quantum array weapons that have just arrived in the city. This shipment must be intercepted, bot to stem the flow of these weapons and to look for proof about who is producing them.
You need to secure the qauntum array weapons in order to keep them out of the hands of our enemies. You'll alos need to find and defeat a Dr. Rotheman, who's in charge of the weapon testing. Finally, you need to look for information about where these weapons are coming from, and if the Council is truly responsible.
Laboratory @ Atlas Park
These high-tech offices are nothing but a front for deadly Council operations.
Objective: This crate is full of deadly Quantum Array weapons
Objective: You found some vital information on this computer.
These shipping records detail the shipments of Quantum weapons into Paragon City. Dozens of shipments have come in, though you notice that many are being sent back due to malfunctions. Most importantly, the weapons are being shipped from, and faulty ones returned to the same place: Striga Isle, home base of the Council.
Mission Complete: You defeated Dr. Rotheman, secured the Quantum Array weapon shipment, and found out where the shipment was going to and coming from.
The information you found confirms it. These weapons were made on Striga Isle, the Coucil's stronghold. The Council are the ones behind the new weapons, but why? They already have the mercenary Void Hunters in their employ, so why would they need the qauntum array weapons as well? Perhaps the answers can be found at the Council base those weapons were headed to.
Strike Council base and scour it for information
The next step will be to strike at the Council base the weapons you captured were intended to reach. We now know where the Quantum Array weapons are being manufactured and who is doing it, but there's still much we don't know. The only way to find out more will be to strike that base and scour it for information.
You must secure the entire base, defeating all foes within it; as well as search for any information about the Council's program against us. I know that you will succeed.
The outer defenses of this Council base were down, they were waiting for a delivery of weapons that will never arrive.
Objective: You found some information on this computer.
The text of this extensive report, written by the leader of this base, details the numerous problems that Council engineers are having producing Quantum Array weapons to Arakhn's specifications. According to the report they are having difficulty working with the strange quantum engineering the weapons require. This has kept them from producing quantum array guns in sufficient numbers to flood the streets.
Objective: You found some information on this computer.
This reporr details the successes and failures that a Colonel Zaos, the leader of a Council Void Hunter support base, has had selling the services of the Void Hunter mercenaries in his command. The report talks about negotiations with groups ranging frm the Circle of Thorns to the Devouring Earth, and even the Rularuu! Luckily, there's enough detail in the report to reconstruct some detail of where Colonel Zaus's base may be located.
Mission Complete: You secured the base and found several pieces of valuable information.
From the information you found, it seems that the Council is having some trouble manufacturing these Quantum Array guns. However, they still have the Void Hunter mercenaries. I have a suspiscion that I can't confirm, but the answer may be waiting at the base controlled by this Colonel Zaus. Combined with what I already know, you may have found enough information to locate his lair.
Strike the Void Hunter base and defeat Colonel Zaus and his men
The Void Hunter base you discovered is your final target, Cosmic Parity. Taking it out won't stop the Void Hunters, but it will set them back and at the same time help us to learn more about this enemy.
A word of warning, Cosmic Parity. I have good information that there is a Void Hunter at that base, but he's not your goal. You will not need to defeat the Void Hunter to finish this. It may be better to avoid him if it's possible. There's no need to fight a Void Hunter on his own ground when you can get the information we want by defeating Colonel Zaus.
Remember that your target is Colonel Zaus and his aides. The worst case scenario is that there will be a Void Hunter liason on his staff, but I trust that you'll be able to handle any such situation.
Hidden dep beneath the streets, this Council base has been set up to support the Void Hunter mercenaries.
Mission Complete: You've taken the Void Hunter support base, and capured it's commander.
Now we know. The Council is producing and distributing both the Quantum Array weapons and the Void Hunter mercenaries. The Quantum Array guns are bad enough, but what really worries me is the 'Nictus Fragment Integration' process they're using. That can't be good. It's a two pronged attack, pointed directly at the throat of every Kheldian not allied with the Council, and it's being masterminded by Arakhn herself. You have done very well in uncovering this, Cosmic Parity. Now that we are aware of our true enemy, I know that with Peacebringers like you rising through the ranks, we shall overcome any challenge the Council throws in our way.
Souvenir: A non-functional Quantum Array gun
When you bonded with a Kheldian Energy being and were transformed into a Peacebringer. you knew that these great new powers you'd been given could earn you new enemies. It was on a mission to find out about some of the new enemies you'd encountered that you disscovered the origins of 'The Peace Killers'.
It all sarted when you were asked to investigate the origins of the mysterious new Quantum Array weapons designed specifically to hurt Kheldians. The first step in your investigation took you into battle with the Skulls. A Skull leader had been bragging about the new weapons he was about to get. You applied some pressure. and found out where the Skulls were storing their Quantum Array guns.
Moving on that information. you hit the warehouse the Skulls were stockpiling their new gear in. only to find that the Hellions were also on the scene. In your battle to secure the warehouse. you learned from one of the defeated Hellions that they were about to make a weapons buy themselves.
Wasting little time. you went in to break up the deal. You foudn Council operatives on the scene making the deal with the Hellions. and learned that a new shipment of weapons had just some into townand was being tested before sale.
You found the Council's test site and defeatd them. securing the shipment of Quantum Array weapons in the process. You also discovered that the weapons were being manufactured by the Council themselves.
With information gained on your last adventure. you were able to locate the base where the Quantum Array guns were being sent. You cleaned out the base. and learned two interesting facts: First. that the Council is having a lot fo trouble producing Quantum Array weapons to Arakhn's specifications. Secondly. that the Void Hunter Mercenaries are being sent out by the Council to work with many villain groups as a second way to strike against the Kheldians.
You bravely struck a Council base that had been supporting Void Hunter Mercenaries. You captured the base commander. and discovered that the Void Hunters had been created specifically to attack Kheldians. using something called a 'Nictus Fragment'.
The full details and ramifications of what you discovered may take some time. but for now you've shed light on the forces arrayed against you and all other Peacebringers. With a foe as implacable as the Council. it's a battle that is sure to last for a long time to come.
