Hawkeye (Lutecia to her customers) was one of a pair of twins experimented on by a sorcerous cabal to create the ultimate living weapon. She was fused with a fire spirit. She was trained as a living weapon, and for a time worked for various people. But at her sixteenth birthday, she and her sister murdered their guards and ran away, making their way to Radio City. There she settled down, opened a tea shop (an old dream of hers) and became a public superhero in her free time.
A detective who was severely wounded on the job and brought back as a cyborg. Jet's always been a bit of a loose cannon; even before his rebuilding, he had a trivially small amount of arrests, and a staggeringly high amount of dead suspects. Now he works nearly 24/7 for the Radio City Police Department as a detective, as well as an on-call one-man SWAT team.
Cowboy Cop: He'll do whatever it takes - and shoot whoever needs shooting - in order to get his job done - except killing innocent civilians.
Cyborg: He was rebuilt with his limbs, eyes, numerous organs, and parts of his brain being replaced by robotic components.
Jack of All Stats: While Jethro is better than a normal human at many things, none of his abilities are on the same level as heroes and villains who specialize in them.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite all the violence and guff outward appearance, he's just a man doing his job and trying to keep Radio City safe.
Powered Armor: Jet wears a powered combat suit which also serves to cover up his cyborg parts and keep him looking somewhat sleek instead of like a tangle of wires.
According to him, he descended from a long lost colony of fungus that was hurdled into time and space in the near future. He came here as an envoy of the species, now an advanced Magitek empire from somewhere far off in the universe. He's spent about 12 years in the heroics business, recently transferring from protecting a sleepy town in Britain to the hustle and bustle of Radio City.
The culmination of a ritual performed by an occult serial killer during the 1980's which involved harnessing the power of a hundred souls of people who were victims of violence. The killer worked in secret, using a knowledge of magic to conceal his identity and the traces of his crimes from the police, typically by substituting a homunculus that was programmed to die of natural causes some time after the death of their original. He was ultimately found and reported to the authorities by a coterie of mages who infiltrated the police department. They laid siege to his house at the climax of the ritual but disrupted it too late. The resulting mass of souls raged out of control and killed everything in the building, resulting in the creation of a malevolent spirit mass that haunts Radio City, particularly the poorer areas where it became known as the Ghetto Ghost.
Coming straight outta The Black Forest in Germany, Count Osterhagen spent a good part of the 20th century waging his wars on the Forces of Holiness and what not. He may have been defeated many times, but never permanently due to nobody having a clue where or what his phylactery is. After his most recent defeat, he had an epiphany and decided to reinvent his image entirely. Now, he stalks the streets as the Hip-Hoppin', Reekin' and Rotten Lord of Crime/Freestyle Rapper, DJ Skeletone.
Expy: Of MC Phylactery, from the famous Paladin vs. Lich Rap Battles on /tg/.
Maria was once a happy little cultist, dabbling about in various forms of observing her widespreadpolytheisticbeliefs. There was one such god, the name of which has been lost to time, that wasn't exactly popular. In fact, it probably had less believers than the amount of people who believe that Birdemic is a serious film. It was so weak, it eventually had to go and possess one of its most zealous believers in order to keep a physical tie to the world. This believer happened to be Maria. It drives her to eat any and all magic she can find, ranging from enchanted things to the enchanters themselves.
Frank Jones: The model stereotype of a New-Yorker and the beleaguered waste disposal guy. Each day, he works the nine to five to pay off his apartment without event. ...ordoes he? In actuality, Frank is a man who, for all intents and purposes, can control the entire avian population of Radio City and assume their form. What does he do with such an odd ability? Mostly spy on the super-populace of this bustling 'burg. His motivations are currently unknown.
Jerk Ass: Frank isn't very personable when you get to meet him, to say the least.
Super Loser: Once you get past the powers, he's still an average, overweight man in his forties that lives alone.
The Black Orchid was one of a pair of twins experimented on by a sorcerous cabal to create the ultimate living weapon. Like her sister, she was fused with another entity — in her case, an orchid. She was trained as an assassin, and from the age of twelve until she was sixteen she was a mercenary. However, her adoptive father amongst that cabal was a religious fanatic, and some of his religion's dogma rubbed off her; so, at her sixteenth birthday, she and her sister murdered their guards and ran away, making their way to Radio City. There 1138-a began in her peculiar quest: keeping the balance of the city.
Subject 1212 is a ten-year old girl, another victim of the cult that experimented on the 1138 sisters. First, the cult let the young wife of one of the members take care of her (that's her mommy), but when the woman objected to the experiments conducted on Tia the cult Unpersoned her, and passed her into the 1138 sisters' adoptive father's care. He was a busy person, and so 1138-b cared for her instead. But then the sisters escaped. Tia was heartbroken, and she decided to find her mommy. So she tossed aside the people who took her mother away and started searching for her. Fortunately for her, by that time the cult moved its operations closer to Radio City or she would've never reached the place alive. There she found an old army captain who pitied her and took care of her. But he wasn't her mommy. So she continued searching.
