Characters: Backlash, Onslaught, Gemini, Blitz, Dragon, Phantom, Medium (NPC) Location: A warehouse in Pittsburgh, PA Time:Tuesday, September 13th from 7:00pm onward Summary: Alpha Team is captured while on a mission Status: In progress Warnings: Violence, language One of the Sciuto family's branches is a faction that previously dealt with weaponry, such as guns and explosives devices, but has been secretly delving into more scientific and technological pursuits in the past decade. Their ultimate goal is to sell the advancements they make to other organizations, such as other crime syndicates, or even governments. That is what caught the interest of the CIA, and therefore, the Ghost Corps. According to the intelligence gathered from Isabella, this part of the family has a new product they will be unveiling to Russian spies. Details of the item in question were unknown, but Isabella assured her interrogators that it presents a threat to the US government as much as, if not more so than, its everyday citizens.
The meeting is scheduled to go down at 7:00pm on Tuesday, September 13th, at a warehouse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. All surveillance indicates that this intelligence is accurate.
Because of the anticipated firepower involved, the Alpha team was assigned to this mission. However, upon reaching the facility, they will encounter more resistance than was predicted. Not only will they face heavy firepower, but something will hinder the usage of their abilities while inside the building. Their powers will still be accessible, but will be harder to use and less effective. Specific members of the team will be targeted for capture, and removed to another, undisclosed facility. These members include Backlash, Onslaught, Gemini, Blitz, Dragon, Phantom, and Medium. Their rescue will be mounted the following day. While captive, they will not be able to use their communicators and the video feed from their body cameras will be cut off, but their implants will still transmit.
While held captive, these supers will be injected with a sedative, to varying effect, and will also have blood samples taken.
Notes: Every character who was officially signed up for participation must have at least one tag in this scene. This will be a free-for-all format, meaning that there is no set tagging order. Since characters will be working as a team, please do not subdivide the thread into several small groups, but rather continue in the comment chain. Involved players should track this post so they're aware of new tags and developments. Handlers may participate in limited capacity, but they will be physically at Purgatory in the command center on sub-basement 1 and only able to participate from a distance. Handlers may have a separate thread to react to the events after the abductions. Characters may react IC to the Alphas' disappearance as early as late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. This post is for Alpha team member participation only. The Echo rescue mission post will go up on Tuesday.
