The Rise of the Sphinx
Masters of Fortune
The short three months after the invasion of VIPER and its subsequent defeat have been a busy time for the Protectors. With numerous calls and requests for them to show up at various functions and events. From the reopening of buildings destroyed in the battles, to children's hospitals, and so on and so forth. Fortunately Elena has proven herself a true treasure for you guys by deftly managing your schedules and insuring that you not only have the time to do all that you're asked to do, but that you have time to yourselves for your own activities both personal and super heroic.
In particular demand has been Master Magician Kris Majax whose natural charm and charisma make him a the almost go to guy for the various media outlets. Thankfully this has distracted him from the feelings of helplessness and lack of worth he's been feeling lately. So he slips into the role and puts on a show for the interviewers as always. Still though he continues his job as a mage and was able to thwart an attempt by the Mystics of the MU society to summon a demon spider to the earth realm. Add in his attempts to find the Anubis who has been mysteriously quiet over the recent frame of time, and he's almost been too busy to care about his personal demons.
The teams most recent additions have not been idle either. Bastion has found a new home it seems. When his old group was broken apart by the Usurper in battle he had wondered at times if he would find a new home. The young paragon has since though joined the Protectors on their journey and hasn't regretted it for a moment. Saving lives and fighting evil the group live sup to its media generated name and he finds that he fits in nicely. First finding a gaming buddy in Dragonfyre, and finding friends easily among the others as well.
Skylark in a way after joining the team finds herself being busier then usual. Falcon still insists on an 11 O'clock curfew but otherwise seems to approve of the team and its methods, He as a bit skeptical early but after receiving a mysterious phone call that lasted for exactly 5 minutes a taking a trip to meet with someone at Oracle Incorporated's home office he returned and never really pressed the matter again. Still she cant complain the team gives her some serious back up and together they drove off the villainous Nasty Boys sending them fleeing with their tails between their legs.
Tony while finding a new gamer buddy in Bastion has also been busy as ever. Lots of children's requests,--because dragons are just the coolest-- but also a number of battles, from the Nasty Boys, to a rematch with Trainwreck which resulted in the brute being sent back to jail. Most interestingly enough he's been in email contact with Alex, the gorgeous redheads emails flipping between flirtatious, and enigmatic. Still she did promise she would see him soon when the time was right.
Hornet has been sorting through things on his own as well, his obvious attraction to Karen whose fun and flighty manner contrast starkly with her near genius technical and scientific skills. Skills which Kirk is rapidly beginning to suspect rival his own, hes almost convinced shes holding out on him in some way, and that shes a lot smarter then she is letting on. Add in that he also has to deal with the crazy attraction he feels towards the mysterious Firefly, and he cant even remotely complain about being bored in the slightest.
Shock much like Hornet has had a busy three months, in his case hes been working near non stop with the investigative divison of Aegis, to clear up the mess, and dig forensically into VIPERs failed attempt. In this manner hes been working with several Aegis agents, including two of their best and brightest Hawkeye and Mockingbird a married couple that bicker back and forth almost as much as they act like a married couple. Add in a little outside assistance from Angel and hes managed to get on top of things without being overwhelmed. Especially when combined with his duties with the Protectors.
The teams most recent battle with the Nasty Boys behind them they find themselves with a little downtime until Elena calls them in to the Bases meeting room.
