Contact Introduced By Edit
New Contact(s) Edit
Paula has high standards, but I have no doubt you will live up to them.
There's an EMT named Paco Sanchez who'd like to meet you. He's not only great at his job, but he also works well with heroes, tipping them off whenever he sees something interesting going on with the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. Paco can be found in Galaxy City.
Paco primarily cares about saving lives.
I'd like you to go and talk to my friend Tristan Caine. He's an environmental activist who keeps a close eye on everything that might impact the city's welfare, including criminals. He might have some good tips for you on the Vahzilok. Tristan has a lot of political connections, so he keeps near the city's center in Skyway City.
There's an EPA investigator named Kyle Peck who's known for working well with heroes. I'm sure he'd be happy to help you out as well, and, more importantly, I think you could help him against the Vahzilok. Kyle's connections keep him in Steel Canyon most of the time.
Kyle is fiercely dedicated. As long as you show commitment to helping Paragon City, you will have a strong ally.
Kip Cantorum has a reputation as one of the more inventive engineers in Paragon City. He loves to tinker, and he has recently made quite a name for himself by converting technology seized from villains into harmless children's toys. He works closely with many of the city's heroes, who often give him recovered items in exchange for tips about what's going on in the city's technical community.
Initial Contact Edit
What can I do for ya?
Kip sells inspirations and some level 10 training enhancements.
Talk to Lt. David Wincott Edit
Have you heard about the Hollows? Ever since the Trolls moved into Eastgate, the Paragon PD has been fighting a losing battle against them. If you're willing, I'd like you to go talk to Lt. David Wincott of the Trolls Task Force. He could really use your help in reclaiming the Hollows. Of course, we can really use your help here, too. Wherever you'd like to lend a hand, you'll be welcome.
The Trolls are the worse problem in the Hollows, but they aren't the only one. I'll let Lt. Wincott fill you in.
|Eastgate used to be a nice residential neighborhood with a view of the ocean. Before Trolls moved in, that is. On a quest for more territory, a group of Trolls headed into the sewers under Eastgate with the intent of blasting open a large area. What they didn't know that that there was already an extensive cave warren beneath the area. Their blasts destabilized the ground and collapsed a large section of the zone. When the dust settled, the surviving Trolls realized that they had found an excellent area for expansion. This event became known as the Hollowing. Since the Hollowing, other groups have moved into the area, including the Outcasts, the Circle of Thorns, and the strange rock-like creatures known as Pumicites. The Paragon City Police Department has its hands full trying to expel these threats so that reconstruction on the Hollows can begin.|

See Perez Park Security Chief Edit
Perez Park is a dangerous place these days. Clearly the Chief thinks you can handle it, but take a couple of friends with you, just in case.
- Talk to Security Chief
Take this briefing seriously. I need you to deal with some of the Circle of Thorns mystics that have been plaguing the area. Try looking for them in Bettis Hills.
|Perez Park briefing|
|Perez Park used to be a beautiful place to take your family for an afternoon picnic. Now, no one in his right mind wanders in there. Most of the area has been abandoned, largely due to the rumors of unholy Circle of Thorns rites taking place deep within the forest. The park is entirely overgrown, a perfect place for those strange mystics to summon up a demon or two. This zone is so deadly that even heroes shouldn't go in there in groups of fewer than three.|
- Keep the peace in Perez Park
- Defeat 10 Circle of Thorns
I guess the Chief's confidence in you was well placed. Fantastic job.
Stop Vahzilok from Stealing Bodies Edit
We've gotten reports of a strong Vahzilok presence in the sewers. They are using them to access the mortuary and steal corpses. Will you stop the Vahzilok from stealing those bodies? Paragon City's fallen citizens deserve better than this.
The sewer entrance is marked on your map. Watch out for the Vahzilok called Digger.
The smell of fresh corpses makes it obvious that you have found Digger's lair.
- Defeat Digger and his minions
You have defeated Digger, stopping any further thefts from the mortuary.
- Digger/Patchwork/Stitcher (Vahzilok Mire Eidolon)
- The boss name can vary. Possibilities are Digger, Patchwork and Stitcher.
- Stolen Corpses: During this mission you can find some corpses stolen by the Vahzilok. Each corpse recovered will net you some Influence and perhaps an Enhancement. The number of stolen corpses in this mission may be as high as 14, perhaps even higher.
The mortuary reports that the thefts have stopped. Great job!
Go to Kings Row and stop the Vahzilok kidnappings Edit
Kings Row has been bearing the brunt of the latest Vahzilok kidnapping spree. I need a hero who can get to Kings Row and stop the Vahzilok kidnappings. I don't want to hear about one more missing person case!
The Gish has suffered a lot in this latest round of abductions. High Park has also seen a lot of activity.
- Combat Vahzilok in Kings Row
- Defeat 10 Vahzilok
You have stopped the Vahzilok from kidnapping the residents of Kings Row.
Thanks. The people in Kings Row can breathe a little easier now.
Hit the streets and defeat as many Vahzilok as you can find Edit
My sources have been reporting a strange trend in the latest round of Vahzilok kidnappings. It seems they're targeting particular individuals! I want you to hit the streets and defeat as many Vahzilok as you can find. Maybe we can figure out who they're targeting and why.
- Learn about kidnapping targets
- Defeat 10 Vahzilok
On the last Vahzilok you defeated, you found a list of names.
|List of names|
|You took this list of names off a Vahzilok you defeated. It may enumerate the Vahzilok's next few kidnapping targets.|
Yes, several of the people on this list have been reported missing. I'll warn the others right away! We'll have to look for a connection between these people. This could be a big clue to Vahzilok's future plans.
