Rufus D. Flywheel is coming home from a long hiatus in which he trained his body and mind for vigilantism. on the other side of the block, Thomas Wright Light is returning from Robexpo. A flash of his future sight brings flywheel to a halt. two goons and Lahar are walking out of a building, when a goon opens fire on a witnessing truck driver. lahar also has the other goon detonate a bomb in the building they just exited. the bomb destroys the building. and a goon spots Flywheel. After the fight, lahar turns into a puddle of mud and flees.

Light and Rufus rescue a woman who was trapped in the collapsing building. and help her boyfriend, a man named John Mason. at Light’s Base of Operations, light manages to save Rachel Megaera with his nanite repair tank. The whole group then retires to flywheel’s Casino.

A car accident outside gets everyone’s attention, Lahar had somehow found them and brought a gang of goons. After the ensuing fight, Lahar was dropped into water which will help prevent him from reforming. Light grabbed one of the goons before the police arrived.

Hideous Laughter...
Follow the sound of laughter
Midtown Manhattan, Wednesday March 6th 2020 20:05:

One of Lahar’s[[E.O.N. Issue #1 | goons]] was captured after the fight outside of Rufus D. Flywheel’s Casino, the interrogation was fruitful and the goon quickly gave up some important information on the group’s activities prior to the frontal assault on the casino. The man told Rufus that they were just hired by Lahar, brought to the central park zoo, where they met a man in a safari get-up with a lot of dogs. the safarai man gave Lahar some kind of device, which allowed the group to track down the sample of material Thomas Wright Light had collected from the scene of the first altercation, which led them to light labs, and from there they followed Light to the casino.

So Rufus, Tech, and Light decided to wait until night to go skulking around the zoo, to figure out who the safari man was. When they arrive, they spot a large number of hyenas and the man they had come to see. “You really should have stayed out of this, it’s a shame, your loved ones will never be able to know what happened to you.” he taunts them, then promptly attacks. The fight is bloody, ferocious, and hard fought, but eventually after an exhuasting battle, Rufus manages to disarm and punch out Pack Master.

Light has the team retreat to his Hideout to recuperate, using his nanite healing tanks he fixes the wounds of the team, then decides to head back to the original scene, to find out what building was hit. He discovered that the building was home to several offices, including one that belonged to a human enhancement lab called Ytech. Light also tapped into UCAP, the FBI’s Unique Criminal Apprehension Program. he learned that Lahar has some affiliates. One of which being Sinder. Light came to the conclusion that she would be a good place to go next.

Meanwhile, Rufus was questioning Packmaster at light labs. “You stumbled onto something big, Lahar wanted no witnesses, so we had to make you guys dead, nothing personal, just business. Once you stick your nose into our business, we’re gonna have to cut it off.” Packmaster told him. “We? what do you mean ‘we’? Who are you?” at this point Packmaster whistled, summoning a large Hyena which picked him up and ran from the building.

The Beast
Just getting started
Manhattan North, Thursday March 7th 2020 20:00:

Lahar’s ally Sinder was tracked to a warehouse in northern Manhattan by Light Labs’s criminological deduction program. By the time the team arrived at the warehouse, there appeared to have been a fight there. Several dead men littered the floor. Inside a man with a rocket strapped to his back was talking with his hired help.

The team decided to surprise the enemy, starting with Mark 1’s rockets. they attacked and defeated the thugs, taking the time to apprehend V2. Upon questioning back at Light Labs V2 told Flywheel that they were attempting to steal some Serum from Barghest, a bioengineering organization with ties to many illegal activities. he also stated that he worked for an organization called Rupture. Light retrieved a shipment of the stolen serum from the warehouse, but was followed by Sinder. She arrived at the lab with an army of mercenaries.

After a brief but intense fight with her mercenaries and Akiya the beast, Sinder attacked with the remaining mercs. Her defeat signalled the end of the fight.
