Damage Sustained/Casualties



Contessa vs. Lung marks the battle between Contessa and a pre-trigger Lung.

Prelude[edit | edit source]

Kenta and some members of his gang go to interrupt a drug deal.

Battle[edit | edit source]

The fight opens with one of the gang members shooting at one of the people conducting the drug deal. Contessa deflects the bullet with a dinner knife and receives permission from Doctor Mother to kill the intruders.

Then she does. Kenta, dying, triggers.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Doctor Mother and Contessa leave the scene. Kenta plays dead and goes on to become Lung.

Because Lung triggered due to the influence of drugs he would be unstable and quick to anger.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is unknown to what extent the other parahumans around Lung influenced his trigger event.

  1. Peter was still talking, responding to something Kayden had said. “Drugs tend to create conditional powers. It’s not hard and fast, but you get situations where the power is directly linked to one’s physical, mental or emotional state. We think it’s because the power works off a template it builds as the powers first manifest. If someone is riding an emotional high as they trigger, their powers will always be looking for a similarly excited state to operate at peak efficiency, often an emotion or drugs. When people were caught trying to fabricate trigger events, sometimes they were intending to use this so the subject would be more easily controlled.” - Excerpt from Interlude 18.y
