Missing Info

Information Edit

Scientist

When Dr Steven 'Science' Sheridan was young, his parents thought him a brilliant child prodigy. As it turned out, they had greatly underestimated their son. Some people think he's a mutant; others suspect he's the product of genetic engineering. Either way, he's without a doubt the most knowledgeable human being who ever lived. 'Doc Science' never forgets a single fact; once he learns something, it is locked in his memory forever. His great intellect allows him to easily recall these facts and draw inferences from them; as one might imagine, this makes him one heck of a scientist.

Initial Contact Edit

I am glad you agreed to speak with me. I believe the Rikti may be the greatest threat facing Paragon City.

Souvenir Edit

Omega level clearance badge

Your Omega level clearance badge allows you to access to some of the government's most secret files. But it does more than that. It reminds you of the time you defeated:

The Organ Grinders

It all began after you stopped the Rikti from stealing some human blood and organs. It seemed the aliens were up to something big.

Your contact assumed it had something to do with the Rikti mutagen, and you went to stop them from stealing some chemicals. But the chemical warehouse turned out to be a Council front company. Several defeated soldiers later, you were still no further toward discovering what the Rikti were up to.

While you were occupied with the Council, Dr. Snider, a renowned transplant specialist, was kidnapped by the Rikti. You tracked his pager down to a sewer junction, but he wasn't there. The Rikti had him, their plan was closer to completion, and you had no idea where to turn next.

Your contact got you in touch with Marvin Weintraub, an inventor who had a Psychic Probe that can read thoughts of defeated Rikti. Using this probe, you found out that Dr. Snider was being held prisoner in Brickstown. When you freed him from the Rikti, he told you that he was forced to perform transplant surgery on living Rikti soldiers, replacing decaying organs with fresh new ones.

Your contact then put you in touch with Rebecca Brinell at SERAPH. She invited you to tour a SERAPH lab where dead Rikti were taken for examination. When you arrived there, the Rikti were attacking the lab. You saved the scientists, and the huge body of data they had gathered on the Rikti.

In recognition of this act of heroism, you were granted Omega level clearance by the Vice President and SERAPH. Ms. Brinell was now able to tell you what SERAPH had learned about the Rikti: that they were nothing more than highly mutated humans, and that the Rikti homeworld was not an alien planet, but an alternate Earth. You also learned that the more powerful the Rikti, the more atrophied their internal organs were upon autopsy.

You used the Psychic Probe again, this time looking for any information about human organs. Eventually you got the info you were looking for, and invaded a secret Rikti base. There you found that they were mutating human organs into Rikti ones, and transplanting them into their soldiers. Apparently the mutated human organs didn't atrophy from overuse like the Rikti organs did. Hopefully, you have ended this operation for good.

Investigate the Crey Lab Edit

Briefing

Hey, I've been hearing rumors that Crey is covering up the fact that one of their labs was taken over by Rikti a couple days ago. It's one of their facilities in Crey's Folly. This might be a good opportunity to learn something more about Crey, or better yet, about what the Rikti's next move is. Will you investigate that Crey lab?

Crey denies any of this, of course, but I have a hunch there is some truth to this rumor.

Mission Objective(s)

The secure locks to the doors are busted, revealing that there may be some truth to the rumor that this lab has been overrun by Rikti.

  • Defeat all Rikti in lab
    • Investigate Rikti plan

You have cleared out the Rikti and learned why they took over the lab.

This human liver was recently removed from a cadaver stolen by the Rikti.
Icon clue generic
Organ data
You recovered this data from a lab infested with Rikti. It appears to be a detailed analysis of human organs.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Debriefing

Crey finally admitted that their lab was taken over, but they claim the Paragon Protectors cleaned it out. Typical. Lets look at what you found. So, the Rikti were collecting data on human organs! I have the feeling this is part of some larger plot.

Recover stolen blood Edit

Briefing

I got a report here that the Brickstown Infirmary had their entire supply of blood stolen right out of their storage facility. The only sign of forced entry was through a liquid waste disposal chute, so I think it's safe to assume the perps came in through the sewers. They can't treat any patients until someone recovers that stolen blood. Can you help them out?

I think they should probably still be in the sewers, try this entrance to track them down.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Recover stolen blood
    • 7 blood lots remaining

You have recovered all of the stolen blood.

Icon clue generic
Blood bags
The Rikti stole these bags of blood from Brickstown Medical Center.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Debriefing

Great job recovering that stolen blood. I wonder what the Rikti are up to?

With the Rikti after fresh blood and human organs, I can only surmise that they are looking at a way to improve their mutagen.

Protect Nicholson Chemicals Edit

Briefing

These recent Rikti thefts have me worried. There's only one reason I can think of for the Rikti to go around stealing human blood and organs. They must be trying to improve their mutagen so that it transforms people more quickly! From what is known about the current Rikti mutagen, they will need a large supply of the chemical Barizium. The only place I could find that had a lot of Barizium in stock was Nicholson Chemicals over in Independence Port. You should get over there to protect their warehouse so the Rikti can't make off with the Barizium.

Keep those chemicals out of the Rikti's hands.

Mission Objective(s)

The upper levels were empty, abandoned. You soon found a staircase leading down to a sub-basement and quickly realized this was no ordinary warehouse, but a front for a Council base!

  • Defeat all villains in warehouse

The Council base has been cleaned out.

Enemies

Badge villain council Council

Debriefing

It wasn't a chemical company, but a Council front? Well, we lucked out on that one. Still, I'm sure the Rikti are up to something. Why else would they go around stealing human organs and blood? We've got to get back on their trail.

Rescue Dr. Snider Edit

Briefing

It looks like that warehouse I sent you to was a dead end. Even worse, the Rikti struck while you were over there! They kidnapped the renowned transplant specialist Dr. Samuel Snider, right out of his operating room! We have a hot trail to follow. I need you to rescue Dr. Snider.

Dr. Snider was wearing his pager, so we should be able to track that to where he is being held. Hurry, before it's too late!

Icon clue generic
Signal triangulator
This device communicates with two signal detectors in Paragon City to triangulate a signal's source. It's currently set to home in on Dr. Snider's personal pager.

Mission Objective(s)

The triangulator has too much interference to precisely locate the pager in here, but it is close.

  • Find Dr. Snider

Dr. Snider is not here, and the trail is cold.

Icon clue generic
Dr. Snider's pager
This is Dr. Snider's pager. It is the only evidence that he was ever here. He must have dropped it. The trail to him has gone cold.

Debriefing

Dr. Snider must have dropped his page in the sewers while the Rikti were carrying him off! I don't know if we'll ever find him now. This is getting bad. The Rikti have human organs, human blood, and now a human surgeon!

Go see Marvin Weintraub Edit

Briefing

So, all you could find of Dr. Snider was his pager. That's not good news. I'm certain the Rikti plan to force him to do some kind of procedure with those human organs they stole. There has to be a way to track him down. Perhaps my friend Marvin Weintraub can help us out. Why don't you pay Marvin a visit?

If anyone has tech that can help us, it's him.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Go see Marvin Weintraub

Briefing

Steven Sheridan sent you, eh? Ok, I do have something that can help you. I call it a Psychic Probe, and it has been proven to be able to read the minds of weakened Rikti. All you gotta do is defeat them, and the probe will pick up any thoughts about Dr. Snider. Take down enough, and you should find out where he's being held.

Icon clue generic
Psychic Probe
This high tech device can read the thoughts of weakened Rikti. It is currently set to find thoughts pertaining to Dr. Snider.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Probe Rikti minds
    • Defeat 35 Rikti

The probe beeps. It knows the location of Dr. Snider.

Enemies

Rikti info
The Psychic Probe discovered that Dr. Snider is most likely being held in a warehouse in Brickstown.

Mission Objective(s)

This warehouse looks like it was recently taken over by the Rikti.

  • Rescue Dr. Snider

Enemies

Icon clue generic
Dr. Snider's story
When you rescued Dr. Snider from the Rikti, he told you:

'They forced me to do transplants on some of their most powerful soldiers. When I extracted their old organs, they were in terrible shape. Withered, decaying! I was told to put in new organs, which I guess came from some fallen Rikti soldiers.'

Debriefing

Dr. Snider thanks you for saving his life. I must say, his story is pretty strange. Performing organ transplants on Rikti soldiers? I wonder what that's all about.

Go see Rebecca Brinell Edit

Briefing

I've done a little digging. There's a rumor that all Rikti bodies are taken to a secret SERAPH lab for analysis. Makes sense, I guess. I have a good friend over at SERAPH, Rebecca Brinell. Go see her, maybe she can tell you more about the Rikti's recent organ thefts.

She's over in Galaxy City, in the Freedom Corp headquarters.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Rebecca Brinell

Briefing

Steven Sheridan called and said you would be by. SERAPH does indeed have a lab were dead Rikti are examined, but it's not like we end up with every single one. I've pulled a couple strings and have secured you a visitor's pass to the facility. Perhaps our techs there can point you in the right direction.

Icon clue generic
SERAPH visitor badge
This badge grants you limited access to the SERAPH facility that analyzes dead Rikti soldiers.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat all Rikti in lab
    • 3 scientists remaining

You have cleared the lab of Rikti and rescued the hostages.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Notable NPCs

  • 3 SERAPH Scientists (Hostages)

Debriefing

Sorry you didn't get any solid info on Rikti biology. We'll just have to keep digging if we want to know what they want with those human organs. At least you saved the day over at that secret SERAPH lab! It never hurts to impress the big boys.

Go see Rebecca Brinell Edit

Briefing

I just got a call from Rebecca Brinell over at SERAPH. She says she wants you to visit her right away. She couldn't discuss her news on the phone, but I'm hoping it's a lead on this Rikti plot we've been investigating. We need to know what those aliens are doing with those stolen human organs!

I don't know what it's about, but Rebecca said you would really like it.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Rebecca Brinell

Debriefing

I wanted to tell you that the Federal Bureau of Super-Powered Affairs was very happy with your help in saving that SERAPH lab. Months of Rikti research was almost wiped out entirely, and we have you to thank for saving it. It took a call from the Vice President, and a background check, but you now have Omega clearance! I can tell you what SERAPH has learned from analyzing the Rikti. Are you ready for this?

Rikti are humans. Biologically, they're not aliens at all, just highly mutated human beings. That means that the Rikti homeworld is not another planet, but an alternate Earth. You can imagine the panic if this was to get out. Not like anyone would really believe it though.

One thing we aren't sure of is if the Rikti themselves know this fact. If they did, they would most likely try to use it to their advantage somehow.

Icon clue generic
Omega level clearance badge
This badge is the proof of your Omega level clearance, granted by the Vice President and the Federal Bureau of Super-powered Affairs in recognition of your heroism. You now have access to some of the government's most secret files.
Icon clue generic
Rebecca Brinell's revelation
Rebecca Brinell told you:

'Rikti are humans. Biologically, they're not aliens at all, just highly mutated human beings. That means that the Rikti homeworld is not another planet, but an alternate Earth. You can imagine the panic if this was to get out. Not like anyone would really believe it though.

One thing SERAPH isn't sure of is if the Rikti themselves know this fact. If they did, they would most likely try to use it to their advantage somehow.

We also learned that the tougher a Rikti is, the more decayed his organs were when we autopsied him. Almost like they were burning up their organs in battle or something. Weirdest thing is, lately we haven't had as many Rikti show up with decaying organs. They are fresh and new, like they worked around this little limitation of theirs.'

Debriefing

So you can't talk about what she told you, eh? From the way you're acting I can imagine it was really juicy. Don't go breaking your code clearance on my account. Now, back to this problem with the Rikti organ thefts. I wonder what's going on there?

Hit the streets with Weintraub's Psychic Probe Edit

Briefing

I think you need to hit the streets again with Weintraub's Psychic Probe. I've set it to probe for information on organs. Just defeat as many Rikti as you can find; sooner or later one of them has to have some information on those stolen human organs.

Not all the Rikti will be informed on what their plans are with the organs, so you might have to defeat quite a few.

Icon clue generic
Psychic Probe
This high tech device that can read the thoughts of weakened Rikti. It is currently set to find thoughts pertaining to human organs.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Probe Rikti minds
    • Defeat 45 Rikti

The probe beeps. It knows the location of a hidden Rikti base.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Mission Objective(s)

  • Investigate Rikti base
    • 3 clues to find

You have shut down the Rikti organ transplanting operation.

Enemies

Icon clue generic
Decaying Rikti organs
This crate contains some decaying Rikti organs. They are atrophied beyond repair. These were recently extracted from their Rikti hosts.
Icon clue generic
Mutating human organs
In this cold storage unit you find Rikti mutagen being used to alter human organs into Rikti ones. They must be replacing the decaying Rikti organs with these altered human ones, since they are genetically the same.

Debriefing

So, the Rikti burn out their own organs, possibly by overworking themselves during combat. It's still hard to believe that they were trying to replace their organs with mutated human ones! I can't see how that could work, them being aliens and all. You did a great job stopping them before their plan could come to fruition.

Missions Edit

Help the Founders' Falls Security Chief Edit

Briefing

You need to help the Security Chief in Founders' Falls. Now!

I am not sure what is going on, but he said to send help fast.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Help the Security Chief

Briefing

I need you to head to the streets. I don't want to argue about politics, Crey needs to be stopped. You should try looking for them near the Red River or the Gaspee.

Icon clue generic
Founders' Falls briefing
Founders' Falls is probably the most historic area in the city. During the revolutionary period it was a busy waterfront property, until the Red River rose, leaving most of the buildings underwater. People kept living there, though, and now it's a major tourist attraction. The wooded areas around Founders' Falls have been invaded by the strange Devouring Earth monsters. Though these creatures are clearly inorganic, some strange intelligence guides their actions. They hate anything related to technology or civilization, and they especially hate human beings. People call them the Devouring Earth because it seems like the planet itself is spawning creatures to devour us all.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep the peace in Founders' Falls
    • Defeat 40 Crey

You have defeated 40 Crey minions.

Enemies

Badge villain crey Crey

Debriefing

Quite often the Security Chiefs have the best perspective on the true threats to Paragon City.

Go to Crey's Folly and clear the Rikti out Edit

Briefing

For the last few days the Rikti have been all over the factories in Crey's Folly. They're making off with the companies' technology, even carrying off an occasional technician who gets in their way. I need you to head over to Crey's Folly and clear the Rikti out. We can't let them get their hands on any more technology!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat 40 Rikti

You discouraged the Rikti from pilfering technology in Crey's Folly.

Debriefing

Well, the Rikti will think twice before they hit the factories in Crey's Folly again! You did a great job. I'm sure those technicians are grateful.

Clear the Rikti out of Crey's Folly Edit

Briefing

For the last few days the Rikti have been all over the factories over in Crey's Folly. They're making off with the companies' technology, even carrying off an occasional technician who gets in their way. I need you to head over to Crey's Folly and clear the Rikti out. We can't let them get their hands on any more technology!

The more technology the Rikti acquire, the greater the chance they'll find a way to teleport through our city zone force fields.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat 40 Rikti

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Debriefing

Well, the Rikti will think twice before they hit the factories in Crey's Folly again! You did a great job. I'm sure those technicians are grateful.

Go to the Crey's Folly and defeat as many Rikti as you can Edit

Briefing

Since people learned the Rikti can impersonate humans, we've been seeing a lot of paranoia. People don't trust each other. There's even a very real threat of civilian violence! I need you to get over to the Crey's Folly and defeat as many Rikti as you can. If people can see that we're on top of the Rikti situation, they'll feel a lot more secure.

When people get scared, they do irrational things. Sometimes it's our job to protect them from their own worst impulses.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat 40 Rikti

Debriefing

I just got a call from the Paragon City Free Press, they had a photographer covering your sweep through Crey's Folly. They wanted a quote about it all. I told them that as long as your is on the job, the Rikti will never threaten our safety again. People in this town respect you. Your actions have a lot of impact.

Concentrate your efforts against the Rikti menace Edit

Briefing

Even after the war's end, the Rikti trapped on Earth still pose a deadly threat to the whole of mankind. We still don't know what they want or why they attacked in the first place, only that they refuse to give up and continue to spread panic and fear in the people of the city and the world. You're a well respected hero, and I think, if you were to concentrate your efforts against the Rikti for a while, it could help to show that the world's greatest heroes can defend the people of Earth.

The people of the city will be watching you closely, hoping to get inspiration from each victory you have against the Rikti.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat 40 Rikti

Debriefing

The menace of the Rikti is far from over, but you've shown people that they can't fear of the invaders rule their lives. The Rikti are still a threat, but with heroes like you in the world, I think it's a threat that we can handle.

Stop the Rikti from killing the Circle of Thorns Edit

Briefing

I just learned that the Rikti are mounting a raid against a Circle of Thorns base. They've even got some sort of electronic device that momentarily zaps the brain's language center. It'll be a whole lot harder for those mystics to defend themselves if they can't remember the words to their spells! I know the Circle hasn't been a good neighbor, but if the Rikti push against them the Circle will push right back, and that would leave too many innocents trapped between them. I know it seems strange, but you've got to stop the Rikti from killing the Circle of Thorns. It won't be long before this gets out of hand. The Circle can get re-enforcements there in as little as 90 minutes.

Another day, another epic battle. Take care of yourself.

Mission Objective(s)

  • 3 mystics to rescue - 90 minutes timed

Icon clue generic
The mystic's story
One of the Circle of Thorns mystics you rescued told you:

'They wanted to wipe us out, each and every one. They learned that in our legends we were taught magic by our ancient god, Ermeeth. The Rikti seem to fear gods, for as far as we know they have none of their own. They thought that if they destroyed us, they'd destroy Ermeeth as well. That's how they got rid of the gods on their own world: by wiping out anyone who believed in them. Gods can not exist without faith.'

Notes

  • Even though it isn't a stated mission objective, this mission cannot be completed until all enemies have been defeated.

Debriefing

So, the Rikti eliminated the gods on their own planet? How very strange. That could explain their extreme hatred of heroes as well, after all, many of you seem like gods to the people you protect.

Find the real Rikti spy Edit

Briefing

I've been accused of being a Rikti spy! The police won't tell me who made the accusation, but they took it seriously enough to search my apartment this morning. I swear I don't know how it got there, but they found a Rikti communicator under my mattress. Then they sent me to a lab for DNA testing, and the data came back positive. I'm being framed! My only hope is that you can find the real Rikti spy. It's probably someone over at the lab where I had the testing done. You'll have to hurry, though. You'll only have 2 hours to find him before they all go off-shift and the spy can disappear.

This is how the Rikti work: accusing innocents to divert suspicion from the real infiltrators. Please, don't let them get away with it!

This portable blood work kit should allow you to positively identify the real spy. Just test every person in that lab

Icon clue generic
Blood work kit
This kit contains a small electronic device that can analyze human blood. If the sample shows Rikti characteristics, a red warning light will appear on the panel.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Unknown

Icon clue generic
The Rikti spy's history
'It's true, human. I did replace your friend's DNA sample. My superiors thought it would keep you from meddling; we didn't want anyone to learn how we've been using this lab. We've been analyzing human DNA so we can further our plan to bring the human population into the great Rikti society. Unfortunately for me, the Restructurists found out. They'd do anything to stop us!'

Debriefing

Thanks, you're a good friend. I wonder who that Rikti spy meant by the Restructurists? When the Rikti attacked they seemed like a monolithic block, but maybe there's more going on that we know. We won't find out from the one you captured, though. The spy used some kind of incendiary implant. There's nothing but ashes left.

Rescue the doctors from the Rikti Edit

Briefing

The Rikti just attacked the Chiron Medical Center! Every single doctor was kidnapped, though the Rikti didn't seem to be interested in the nursing staff or orderlies. In fact, they left everyone else strictly alone. You've got to rescue those doctors from the Rikti. If they need human doctors, it could mean they're cooking up some new biological weapon. As soon as you're out of there, I want you to talk to Professor Jonathan St. John Smythe about possible threats posed by a biological attack.

See if you can find out what the Rikti are planning. Whatever it is, I'm sure it's not good.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Rescue doctors from Rikti
    • 3 doctors to save

You rescued the doctors and learned that the Rikti are dying of chicken pox.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Icon clue generic
The doctor's story
One of the doctors you rescued told you:

'You'll never guess why they wanted us. The Rikti have the chicken pox! I know we think of it as a simple childhood virus, but their reaction to it is far more severe. It's killing them! They kidnapped some of my colleagues as well, but they must have taken them to another facility. I hope you'll help them, but please be careful! The Rikti were very hostile to us; I think they may view this disease as a type of biological warfare.'

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to St. John-Smythe

Briefing

Chicken pox, eh? That's a nasty one. Alas, there's no cure, strictly speaking. However, we may be able to exchange some anti-viral medicine for the remaining hostages. I'll also throw in some vaccine, it should help the uninfected Rikti remain healthy. I know they're our enemies, but somehow it seems like the right thing to do. Now, go out there and get those doctors back. Oh, and tell the Rikti not to scratch!

Icon clue generic
Medical kit
Though there is no known cure for the chicken pox, this medical kit contains several doses of an anti-viral medication that should help the Rikti fight off the infection. It also contain several doses of a vaccine, to be used by uninfected Rikti.

Mission Objective(s)

You hear a hoarse voice struggle over the words: 'We cannot trust them. The humans will not leave alive.'

  • Exchange cure for hostages
    • 2 doctors to save

You defeated the Rikti and rescued the doctors.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Notable NPCs

Icon clue generic
The Rikti progeny
One of the doctors you rescued told you:

'I know why they're so desperate for this cure. They don't want it just for their soldiers; they want it for their children. That's right, children! They wouldn't permit me to see them first hand, but there are whole nurseries filled with infant Rikti in other well-hidden bases. I think they're rebuilding their whole civilization, right here on Earth.'

Notes

  • Even though it isn't a stated mission objective, this mission cannot be completed until all enemies have been defeated.

Debriefing

The Rikti are having children, in their military outposts? I know they're an alien civilization, but it still doesn't make sense. I've got a theory about this. We know that we've been unable to access the Rikti world since the war. What if the Rikti can't, either? They're rebuilding their civilization, because their old world is lost to them. I'd bet my life on it.

Confiscate the Rikti music Edit

Briefing

You know those recordings the Rikti POW's made of the music piped into their cells? Well, the government's afraid that music may contain subversive propaganda, and they're fighting an uphill battle to keep it out of people's hands. I've got a lead on a warehouse that's storing a bunch of CD's: Rikti music mixed with dance tracks, that sort of things. I want you to confiscate that Rikti music and defeat the Rikti doing the distribution. You'll have to hurry; once those discs hit the streets, there's no getting them back. You only have 1 hour to stop the distribution.

It's strange to protect people from something that seems so innocuous. Thanks for trusting me on this one.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Confiscate CD's & defeat Rikti - 60 minutes timed
    • 5 crates to confiscate

You defeated the Rikti and confiscated the CD's.

Icon clue generic
Rikti CD's
The CDs you confiscated are a mix of Rikti music, dance beats and human vocals. The crates in which they were stored were labeled 'Pacify,' 'Stupefy,' 'Euphoria,' 'Terror,' and 'Enrage.'

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Debriefing

This Rikti music is more insidious than anybody could have guessed. It's not propaganda; it's outright mind control! Those CD's labeled 'Euphoria' actually make you feel happy! Ditto for the rest. By conditioning people to accept emotional cues from this music, the Rikti can steal into our very minds. Who knows what they could make people do?

Appear at the science fiction convention Edit

Briefing

How would you like to take it easy for a day? You've been asked to appear at a local science fiction convention, if you can believe it! The convention organizer told me they want some real life heroes there, to add a little drama. What do you say? Want to appear at the science fiction convention, be a big star?

You better practice your Vulcan neck pinch!

Mission Objective(s)

  • X people to save

Icon clue generic
The hostage's story
One of the hostages you rescued told you:

'My buddies and I, we call ourselves the Brotherhood of Our Other Selves. See, we reached out to the Rikti when no one else would. We always believed there was a way to make peace. We've been doing stuff for them, telling them about our culture, lobbying for less stringent laws restricting their technology. In return, they've been telling us about the grand Rikti culture.

The Rikti told us that you've been harassing them, that you were one of the main barriers to peace between our peoples. So we invited you here, just to hear their side of things. I guess the Rikti didn't want to talk at all, huh? They just wanted to use us to lure you into a trap. I've never felt more disillusioned in my life.'

Debriefing

Yeah, I've heard of the Brotherhood. It's a group composed mostly of lost souls: the confused, the lonely, those who are looking for someone in the world to connect to. Can you believe they even think the Rikti are related to human beings? You did a good work rescuing those people. They may feel adrift now, but at least they have a chance at a life without illusions.

Stop the Rikti assault Edit

Briefing

The Rikti are planning a major assault on a neighborhood called Kaylie Crescent! We haven't faced a situation like this since the war, when they wiped out whole neighborhoods in moments. You've got to get over there and stop this Rikti assault. I can give you the location of their first strike; it's the Sanderson office complex. After that, you'll have to figure out their next strike for yourself. Watch out though, you probably won't have a lot of time to stop that second strike.

We've got the area contained with an emergency force field, but there are still people trapped inside. It's been a long time since we've seen violence like this from the Rikti. Anything you can learn about their motives will help.

You hear the piercing whine that denotes the discharge of a plasma weapon

Mission Objective(s)

  • Stop the Rikti assault
    • 9 people to save, Learn Rikti motives

The last Rikti you defeated told you the location of the next strike site.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti


Notable NPCs

  • Kaylie Crescent Citizen x9 (NPC Hostage)

They wanted to do something terrible to us!
Listen! Strange things are happening!


Icon clue generic
Strange fluid
You found this canister of fluid at the site of the Rikti assault. The design of the canister is similar to those used to transport the mutagenic goo the Rikti use to turn the Lost into monsters. However, the color of this fluid is different, and the canister is missing the large orange designs that Rikti linguists assume are warnings of hazardous contents.
Icon clue generic
The hostage's story
One of the hostages you rescued told you:

'The Rikti tried to force us to eat this weird, green fluid. But then some other Rikti came along and stopped them!'

Icon clue generic
The Rikti's story
One of the Rikti you defeated gasped:

'Traditionalist plot: an aberration. Their delusion: human filth can be like Rikti. Their plan: turn your kind into us! They descend: Wylie Park!'


Mission Objective(s)

Your hair stands on end, repeated plasma blasts have charged the air with static electricity

  • Stop next Rikti assault - 90 minutes timed
    • Destroy the mutagen
    • 8 people to save

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti


Notable NPCs

  • Olenti (Boss) (Rikti)
  • Worker x8 (NPC Hostage)

They tried to make us drink this green goo!

Debriefing

It looks like the factions within the Rikti army may be fighting a war as desperate as their war with humanity. I can't thank you enough for stopping the Traditionalist plot. It's hard to imagine the terror that would have swept through the populace if the Rikti had altered those people!


Spending time on this map appears to award the Shrouded badge.

This otherworld has been overshadowed by corrupting magic.

Help the Security Chief with the sewers Edit

Briefing

The Security Chief for the sewers needs some skilled help. Please do whatever you can to help him.

The area under Paragon City has quickly turned into the most dangerous area of all.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Help the Security Chief

Briefing

The Rikti are taking over the sewers. Get down there and play defense! Here's a briefing for you. If I were you, I'd try looking for Rikti in the Underworld or Skyway City sector.

Icon clue generic
Sewer briefing
The sewer network is probably the most dangerous place in the city right now. The Rikti have many secret bases down there, and they use the sewers for hit and run attacks all over the city. Even worse, it's said that the aliens are using the sewers to breed some strange sort of monster. We've seen evidence of these creatures in Perez Park, but nowhere else. There are even rumors of a giant beast living in the center of the sewers, just waiting for the Rikti to release it on the city. Only go in there with the help of many other heroes.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep Rikti from taking over sewers
    • Defeat 40 Rikti

You have defeated 40 Rikti.

Notes

  • IMPORTANT: This mission actually refers to the Abandoned Sewer Network, not the Sewer Network. To enter the Abandoned Sewer Network, you must enter the Sewer Network, and enter through the door to the right of then entrance.

Enemies

Badge villain rikti Rikti

Debriefing

We cannot give the Rikti free reign down there. They could strike anywhere in the city.
