Overview Edit

The Tsoo are a street gang of Asian background with strong magical powers. The Tsoo are an enemy group in City of Heroes, where they can be fought between levels 15 and 30, and City of Villains.

Background Edit

Tsoo official info ( Copied from the City of Heroes official website)

The Tsoo emerged on the scene in the late 1990s as a small, but unified, bunch under the leadership of Tub Ci: a brutal and calculating drug lord recently released from prison. Tub Ci claimed to have found his spirituality in prison– but it was the legacy of a warlord and he named his group after a word that he defined as “the destroyers.” Independence Port and Talos Island were under the thumb of Hong Kong-born Triads at the time, who harshly exploited other Asian minorities in the area, but this wouldn’t last for much longer.

Tub Ci claimed he could no longer see his people (the Hmong) suffer and, while there was some truth to his outrage over the hardships they faced beneath the Triads, he was certainly not motivated by altruism. Tub Ci’s ambitions were grand and his Tsoo were a fearsome lot, heavily inscribed with mystical tattoos that gave them super-powered abilities. His lieutenants, the cruel sorcerers, were his most trusted brothers, many of whom had spent time with Tub Ci in prison. When their martial arts, gun and sword play and magics were not enough, Tub Ci showed his sorcerers how to reinforce their ranks with ghostly warriors they claimed as their literal ancestors. They broke the backs of the ruling Triads and slipped into power.

The Tsoo wanted nothing less than to control all of the drug trade and protection rackets in Paragon City. However, the Rikti War forced them into the simple task of survival for a time. They refused to aid the heroes and they certainly would never help another gang, but they did do what they could for the people under their “protection”.

When the war finally ended, Tub Ci consolidated his forces in the regions of Talos Island, Independence Port and Steel Canyon. They basically own the drug business, gambling dens and protection racket in those areas. They celebrate their domination regularly with loud, raucous parties held throughout the month. These parties are usually held in abandoned warehouses or empty lots in bad neighborhoods– deep within Tsoo territory, of course. Sometimes, the parties devolve into "blood sports", where both men and women participate in no-holds-barred scraps, earning prestige and glory among the streets. Offering a heady mix of drugs, flesh and violence, the Tsoo gatherings act as magnets for those drawn to their dark lifestyle and Tub Ci craftily uses them as a constant “recruitment drive” to bolster his ranks.

Tub Ci’s great plans are still shrouded in mystery, but expansion of the gang is key. Many of the new members reflect the current trends of Paragon City, wearing the latest fashions, listening to the coolest music, using the edgiest drugs. They see themselves as young, hip, veterans of the last great war and that simply surviving means they are special. They swagger through their neighborhoods with pistols tucked into belts and they are often strapped with ancient weapons. Tub Ci is a true artist and his work spreads across a living canvas.
