While making this site I encountered some REAL OLD (2003/2004) text files with plans for the comic. Some of the stuff made it in eventually, some changed, and some's just gone.

Antihero for Hire Characters Dechs Rashart 'Shadehawk' He who prowls the streets and patrols the rooftops of Triumph City in the dead of night.He's a bit of a goof and a bit of an idiot, but honestly he does get stuff done.He might make a lot of mistakes but he's very resourceful. And I'd rather him as my partner than some heroes. He usually catches criminals by pointing trademark gun, the Silver Arrow at them. Real quotation: "There are few problems in the world that can't be solved by shooting them enough in the right places." Tyra Rashart Tyra is Dechs' sister.She died in a car accident with his best friend.He says he sees her everywhere, but I think he just misses her. Micheal Stevens Going out with Tyra, he died in a car accident.Dechs misses him, but doesnt see him everywhere like his sister. Wizard Supervillian with the power to control kinetic energy in objects.He runs a small criminal syndicate, and plays tricks with Dechs' mind, not that it's very hard to do that:-) Laria Moondale 'Wrench' The smartest, most technically profficient sidekick in the business.Hacker and engineer extrordianare!A.K.A. ME! Pretty much every one of Dechs' gadgets except the Silver Arrow are my doing, and I pretty much know the Silver Arrow's mechanical spec except for a few black boxes. Well.Silver boxes. On the 'net I'm known as 'Wrench' and I'd go down in history as a legendary hacker if I could ever be traced. Triumph City After the northern parts of the US (including New York) were lost to Canada after the unexpected war of 2075, this city was founded.Thanks to modern construction techniques the city was built in less than 50 years.Now, in 2140, the city's bustling just as any dungey villian hideout city has ever been. Only the US can call a town they built because they lost a war Triumph City. Unexpected War of 2075 In June 2075 Canada unleashed it's new weapon upon the US completely out of the blue. It turned out Canada's been genetically engineering battle dinosaurs all that time. Who knew? The northern states resisted until they realized they'd get free healthcare and not be shot so much.New York became New York- only now it's the York from Toronto that it was the New of. Gravetic Pads (U-Grips) Devices that use a similar technology to antigravity pads, only in reverse. They're sort of extragravity pads which can adhere at will to any surface. A great replacement for suction cups to be sure.They're still pretty expensive though, so we couldn't afford many.The Zipgrappler uses it for the grappling part. The slang term 'U-Grips' comes from the fact they're shaped like a U. Terra Daemon CEO of Teracorp.She doesn't really have any particular quirks except her hair. She went through university as a business major, then as a physics major, and then started a company by creating the first U-Grip prototype devices.It got so popular that her company ended up buying out many other companies in strategic marketplace locations. She's a big fan of powersuit technology, which is why Teracorp is working so hard on them. Terra Daemon Head of Power Suit R&D, Teracorp.That must suck, given that she used to be the CEO of the company before the board gave control of the company over to Hector Syphon.She went through university as a business major, then as a physics major, and then started a company by creating the first U-Grip prototype devices. After she lost control of the company she was given control of the R&D division for powersuits, since that's one of her other specialties. I bet she holds a grudge against Syphon. Teracorp A giant mostly R&D corporation specializing in energy control devices and power suits.However, they have a hand in almost every aspect of modern life. Like all giant corporations they're evil, and they're headed up by the CEO, Terra Daemon. Teracorp A giant mostly R&D corporation.Pretty much every major appliance anyone owns was built by one of Teracorp's many divisions.The CEO was once Terra Daemon but the board gave control over the company to Hector Syphon instead. The company's specialty is energy control devices and power suits. Hector Syphon Board member at Teracorp.He's up to something, but I can't find any information about him at all. Hector Syphon CEO of Teracorp.From what Dechs has reported he seems to be into magical mumbo jumbo.Still don't know much about him but I'm starting to find some clues in missing files. Hector Syphon CEO of Teracorp, wields the Zecharu Daizon (Poison Flame) Power.Through a series of artifacts and a ritual, Hector Syphon bonded with an anceint evil force, giving him immense power.He's completely out of Dechs' leauge, how is he going to stop him? Oh!I finally got some info on his backstory.He graduated with honours from Triumph U, but after that seemed to dissapear off the radar as being incredibly normal.One day, however, a hoverbus carrying his family crashed.Strangely enough, this diddn't seem to effect him much, and two months later joined Teracorp in a low position quickly climbing to member of the board in only a year. Soon after, Terra Daemon, original founder of Teracorp and CEO was overthrown by the board and Hector was put in his place. Poison Flame An ancient power of green fire.All else I know about it is that it can be given to people, and the following quotation from some 7,000 year old scripture: "The Emerald Wave shall consume the land in flame." It's interesting to note that the temple that this was engraved in was one of the few remaining strctures.It was also the newest one they found.If you ask me, that's not a very good sign.

"Why are you always around when I'm fighting Baron Diamond?" "Because I'm always around.Good job with the MANTIS agents in Tera Corp, by the way" Diamond attacks Wizard, and Wizard tosses him aside like a rag doll -Wizard attacks a museum (with Mantis guards), Shadehawk shows up and finds he made hsort work of all the guards.
