The 2007 attack was on a Pennsylvania nuclear facility while the 2008 attack was on a different nuclear facility. His situation was quickly handled by the PRT.

When Dragon was checking on the last month's addition to the Birdcage, she learned that while Murderbeam was feared outside of the prison the residents inside the prison did not.

Prong (Mercenary)Edit

Prong is a mercenary who was involved with Cradle and his army.


Prong wore an ox skull mask, and Kevlar body armor.[65]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Prong has enhanced strength, as well as a shaker power that allows him to create spears of light that can impale people and carry them off into the horizon.[66]



A regenerator who believed he was Jesus. Combined with Carnal by Bonesaw to create the centaur-like Pagoda.[7]


Ramrod is a parahuman criminal.


Dragon described him as "a very laid back and unruffable individual" and "a calming influence" based on his psych reports.[67]

After year-long legal proceedings, both villains were both sentenced to the Birdcage, but they were broken out by Madcap before they could arrive there. The incident drove Battery to become a hero.[68]

Illustratoin by LonSheep

Reynard was a member of the Boston Wards who wore a fox mask. His only appearance was meeting with some kids in a park along with some other Wards, at a community outreach event Weaver attended.

Stinger is a supervillain operating in California.[75]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Stinger is a Tinker specializing in propulsion, mainly jetpacks and missiles.[76]


When choosing a name for Skitter, the Brockton Bay Wards considered the name Stinger before discovering that the name had already been claimed.[75]

At some point, some of Stinger's technology was confiscated by the PRT. The design was repurposed by Dragon and Defiant to create a flight pack for Weaver.[77]

She and several other members of the group, including Desert Witch, Stack Overflow, Impasse, Rabid Dog, and ten other non-costume wearing members attacked and took over the FNN Gemstone coal and nuclear facility near Tampa.

Snowfall seems to be well-meaning, but also extreme. She and her group injured several staff members at the facility, but also expressed regret and a willingness to go to jail for their crimes. She seems to believe that leaving nuclear power plants open is a recipe for disaster.[80]


Spell was a member of Auzure.

He died during the attack on Teacher's base.

Subject 3016Edit

Subject 3016 is a Case 53.

Abilities and PowersEdit

Subject 3016 is capable of manifesting the missing parts of his body from various dimensions, resulting in more powerful attacks.

In his battle with the Number Man, Subject 3016 obliterated concrete and steel with a single attack, as if he had leveraged every possible version of himself that was in the basement and drawing them together into one coordinated strike.


He stated that he had a wife and children.

Subject 3016 was "collected" from his world by Cauldron agents, forced to drink a Cauldron vial, and contained on the fourth floor of the Cauldron headquarters.

When he attempted to escape in conjunction with subject 2990, the Number Man was alerted and stopped him.[81]


A cape in the birdcage that could generate a porcelin shell around herself. She got in the way of Ingenue succession to Blood Diamond's position, this had consequences that later led to Teacup starving to death.[82]

The Man in the CornersEdit

Fought team Moonwalkers and proved very effective in combat, defeating multiple of the Moonwalkers.


Two was one of the Yàngbǎn's most valuable members.[84] Her ability to magnify the powers of parahumans in close proximity - the "second path" - allowed them to magnify each others' powers when shared among them, in a feedback loop of self-reinforcement.[85]


Vornehm (German for "genteel") is the leader of the German team The Meisters by the time of Gold Morning.[86]


  • 'Vornehm' is an adjective which on its own is not a typical naming choice in German.

  1. Infrared 19.z
  2. “Brick took the guy Blesk brained against the wall, um. It was the clairvoyant, the doormaker, hurt, the Doctor. Brickhaus, Magnaat, Munstro, they made it inside. The others got shot down in the stairwell. Um. There was a guy with glasses, and five teenagers who looked a lot like him, only without glasses. Ordinary looking, pretty much. Alexandria…” - Excerpt from Venom 29.6
  3. There was a tearing sound, a wet crack.

    One of the deviants had appeared beside her. Yellow skinned, with bruising in the recesses of his face, arms and hands. He smiled, his teeth narrow like a fish’s.

    He withdrew his hand, and Doormaker crumpled to the ground, limp as a rag doll, blood running from his forehead where his head had been smashed against the wall. - Excerpt from Interlude 28
  4. Boundless died before Gold Morning - Excerpt from Infrared 19.d
  5. PHO Sunday
  6. Earl had had an always-on power that produced an abrasive noise at volumes loud enough to cause permanent ear damage, audible from halfway across the city. - Excerpt from Breaking 14.11
  7. 7.0 7.1 7.2 Interlude 11h
  8. I saw the distorted space before I saw Capricorn, Vista, and Chasmal. Capricorn had one of his stone constructions over his shoulder, something that looked like a coffin, but was obviously made of Tristan’s power, with hooks and such. Interestingly, though it looked like the sort of heavy something that would have required Tristan’s attention, it was Byron in the blue armor who was hauling it, holding up the thicker, wider upper end, with the bottom end dragging in the path behind him.

    Vista was shortening their path. Chasmal would be making the coffin and the person inside light enough for Byron to drag, while simultaneously phasing Mama Mathers partially out of reality.

    He had a costume that sported Advance Guard’s geometric future aesthetic with a deep blue color scheme with orange trim. The aesthetic and design seemed to be intended at invoking the dark, vigilante style.

    I was really hoping that a measure like that would sever her connection to others, for any point in time that she woke up. - Excerpt from Pitch 6.6

  15. He’d been a friend once, or he had pretended to be, and she had let him pretend. - Interlude 10.x II
  16. “You tried to steal official data, and you put a virus on my system. Epeios’ work, I believe. I’m more insulted by the fact that you went to that hack than I am about the virus.” - Parasite 10.4
  17. From Within 16.5
  18. Radiation 18.2
  19. 19.0 19.1 “Boy and a girl. Case fifty-threes. Arizona. Peat and Fen. They showed up in a few cities, did some stunts, hero-ish. Junior level stuff. But they were juniors, we think.”

    “I know the story,” Rain said.

    “They were terrified of vehicles and they hated the idea of the PRT. They had a lot of peculiarities. They couldn’t stay in one place for long. Communities pulled together. It was a really cool thing, they’d get motel rooms paid for by fans, they had tutors come to visit. There was talk of trying to get them into the school system. It was tricky because they were tricky.”

    Rain nodded.

    “It was a really cool thing,” Sveta said. “There were blogs that followed them, and they were really positive. There was art drawn of them- I really liked that. A couple of times a week there would be articles talking about how they were doing something new and better and it was a step forward.”

    “I knew some of it,” Rain said.

    “You should know all of it. There was a time in my life when I could only vicariously enjoy those sorts of things, and I’d wake up and I’d tell myself I would check the blog after lunch and I would check the art page after dinner, and that was the sort of thing that helped me get through the days. Weld stuff was first thing. There were others. But Peat and Fen were big.”

    “I know,” Rain said.

    “They went down the wrong stretch of road and some Fallen jackasses on motorcycles thought they’d get a good reaction from people by holding the pair down and taking a chainsaw to their horns. To decorate their fucking helmets!”

    Rain nodded, averting his eyes.

    “Knife marks suggested someone tried to cut off one of their faces to wear it as a mask. You can imagine how I felt,” Sveta said. She moved her hair, showing the edge of her face, the mass of pencil-thin black tendrils behind it. “Since I’m only a mask and an assortment of lethal weapons. You can imagine how I felt, when instead of my daily pick-me up I got the news that they’d died from loss of their horns.” - Excerpt from Shade 4.7
  20. Excerpt from Scourge 19.3
  21. I could see Narwhal, standing off to one side, two of the Dragon’s Teeth flanking her.  Masamune wasn’t present, but from what I knew of the guy, he wasn’t even close to being a front-lines combatant.   They’d recruited him from the ruined area of Japan, a somewhat crazed hermit, and gave him work in figuring out how to mass produce their stuff without the maintenance issues snowballing out of control, like tinker tech tended to do in large quantities.

    Thanks to him, they had the Dragon’s Teeth, they had the combat engines and they had top of the line gear for various members of the Protectorate and Wards.

    Of the other members of the Guild, the only other one who could theoretically be on the front lines of the fight would be Glyph.  I could only assume she was somewhere close. - Exerpt from Sting 26.2

    He bit it. Word of god. - Conversation with Wildbow on Speck 30.6
  26. este_hombre: Other than the obvious "Genoscythe the Eyeraper"?
    Probably Clockblocker.

    Wildbow: Not a Worm cape. Fan stuff.

    Wildbow: He bit it and still isn't canon. - conversation on Reddit with Wildbow
  27. What’s this crystal?” Chariot asked.

    “3D computer chip. Uses light instead of electrical current. They’re made by this Protectorate tinker down in Texas. She gets funding to produce a set number every month, in addition to her regular pay. So long as you’re in the program, you can put in an order for her stuff, with the specs you want.” - Excerpt from Sentinel 9.4

  29. At the other end of the line, capes with short ranged abilities were getting help from Gunnery Anne, one of Advance Guard’s backline capes, who handled the training of their rookies. She added range to all abilities, turning strikers into blasters. Some Master minions even translated, rust spiders with fifty twitching, spindly limbs getting a brief touch from her before leaping hundreds of feet to where Titan Skadi was embroiled with the long glowing tendrils of a shaker effect. They offered a constant barrage of fire, point blank attacks extending for hundreds of feet to scour and carve into Oberon’s back and sides. - Excerpt from Radiation 18.6

  32. 32.0 32.1 “Jotunn was a local in Anchorage, apparently, but last year he made a stab at taking over Anchorage, trying to emulate Brockton Bay, and he failed. If I remember right, it’s part of the reason the paperwork for the department was put into motion. He was sighted in the vicinity of Fairbanks, but hasn’t been heard from in months. That leaves only…” - PRT Quest
  33. PHO Sunday
  34. “Heith.”

    Justin sighed. Heith was Fenja and Menja’s cousin and guardian, Kaiser’s first wife, killed in a turf war with the Teeth, back in the old days of Brockton Bay. She has powers after all.

    Somehow, all of this would be easier if he could believe that Theo was illegitimate. - Excerpt from Interlude 18.y
  35. Heith - Size changer protected by personal distortion field - E88 Wildbow's Parahuman List, bolded edit by Wildbow
  36. Sveta asked about Roos, AKA ‘Jacked’, who had surgically removed his own body parts to implant hypermuscular cyborg replacements, and did just fine for himself until he got hurt in a fight. He’d left the hospital after weeks, which had been enough time for the natural degradation of tinker stuff over time to ruin his implanted parts. With broken parts he hadn’t been able to collect materials or earn cash to buy the materials, couldn’t keep up with tinkering. His health had suffered, and he’d ended up at the Asylum, trying to get stable so he could get back on his feet, literally. I told her he’d passed. Even with the hospital’s help, he hadn’t bounced back. - Excerpt from Breaking 14.11
  37. 37.0 37.1 “Someone’s doing their level best to make their own Endbringer.”


    “Yes.  There’s also any number of megalomaniac tinkers out there who might have tried something. Bonesaw, Rattenfänger, Jamestowner, Blasto, Mosaic, Monstrum, some non-tinkers like Chrysalis and Nilbog, bunch of others.” - Excerpt from Queen 18.1
  38. Jamestown{sic} Radiation blaster, could focus effects to turn individuals into docile (to him) mutants, driven largely by cannibalistic hunger and fear of being irradiated further. - Parahuman List, bolded edit by Wildbow.
  39. Snowfall may be referencing the 2007 attack carried out by Jamestowner. Brandishing his inventions, Jamestowner attacked a convoy carrying nuclear supply to a Pennsylvania nuclear facility. A year later, in September 2008, he attacked another nuclear facility in the midwest, his tinkertech distributing radiation to the surrounding area, while turning the dead, primarily animals, into mutants, a situation the PRT swiftly handled. - PHO Sunday, FEY seizes reactors, leaving Millions without power
  40. A small handful of individuals in the C.U.I. hadn’t been brought onto the group. Null, the cape who made the Yàngbǎn possible, was independent. He couldn’t be a part of the whole. Others included Tōng Líng Tǎ, who had a power that was too slow to use, not worth the fractional decrease in power that came with including her in the network, Shén yù, the strategist, and Jiǎ, the tinker that supplied the C.U.I. with its devices, including the simulations for the drills. - Excerpt from Interlude 23
  41. Jia is a simulation architect. - reddit comment by Wildbow.
  42. Beside him was Jiǎ, the imperial family’s tinker, and surely the individual who had set up the kaleidoscope effect, throwing off would-be assassins and intruders. - Excerpt from Speck 30.3

    Gordeox:There is also Kudzu (the duplicator in the Echidna fight) and Gallant (kind of).

    Wildbow: Yes on both counts. - Wildbow on Reddit
  49. 49.0 49.1 I was fighting a duplicator.  Another Kudzu, like the one I’d killed earlier, unless there was another Asian duplicator with a Japanese-sounding name.  She was vulnerable, but she knew how to fight.  Better than I did. - Excerpt from Scourge 19.5
  50. Kudzu Self-replication cape, clones could self-replicate. Reined in by psychological drawback. - Parahuman List, Bolded edit by Wildbow
  51. The capes caught up to her.  One murmured, “Kudzu.”

    “…s not her, Jouster,” another said. - Excerpt from Scourge 19.5
  52. Kudzu was a self-replicator. It was only a variation on her power that let her clone Echidna. - Comment by Wildbow on

  57. World News: Warlord Hits Egypt​
    Parahuman warlord Neils Baru hit Europe in an unprecedented attack with minimal warning. The event might be relating to a shift in the balance of power, following recent attacks, forcing certain warlords into conflict with one another, pushing Neils Baru out of his home territory and into invasion...​​ - Department Sixty Four, PRT Quest thread i p54

  59. If I didn't think Null would rescind my powers, I'd kill you here and now.

    Reluctantly, still stewing with anger, he obeyed ... He didn't have much time before the Yàngbǎn found a free moment to contact Null and rescind his powers. Maybe they were calling already. Maybe the electromagnetic radiation in the area would block the call. - Interlude 23

  62. Case four was The Player, an early Thinker mastermind who had required some greater cooperation across multiple agencies to root out. Later on, The Player would be a case-in-point for the formation of Watchdog and its core purpose. - Excerpt from Shadow 5.10

  64. “Yes. Or one on the far left, ox skull. Prong.”

    “Don’t know him,” I said, noting the soldier with an ox skull mask that looked like it obscured his peripheral vision, with the way the skull and his own eyes lined up. He wore a heavy coat over what might have been body armor. Bulky kevlar, not fancy costume armor panels. - Excerpt from Heavens 12.8
  65. “Brute tough, but you can wear that down. Or use Foil’s power and ignore it. Wanted to hire him once, he said no, he was busy, so fuck him. The-”

    She stopped. Her face was shiny with sweat. Rachel brushed a mittened hand over her upper face to move hair away, not really as delicate in the operation as I imagined ninety-nine percent of the population would be.

    “-The schtick is ‘you mess with the bull, get the horns’. Curved spikes of light. Spear you like a- like a spear. And carry you back and away. Impales you to a wall with one spike then stabs you ten times with the other, or he just pushes you back out and away. Extends the spike out past the horizon.” - Excerpt from Heavens 12.8
  66. 67.0 67.1 Prisoner 606, Ramrod.  Now member of Cell Block X's inner circle.  To be expected.  She'd placed him there with the idea that he would become just that.  His psych evaluation from the courtroom suggested he was a very laid back and unruffable individual.  It was her intention that he would have a calming influence on the others in his block. - Excerpt from Interlude 10.5

  74. 75.0 75.1 "Stinger, Pestilence?" Vista suggested.

    Clockblocker spun himself around in the chair and punched the names into the computer, "Taken.  Stinger is some villain in California with power armor, a jetpack and homing missiles, and Pestilence is a creepy psycho in London."

    "Skitter?" Gallant put the name out there.

    There was a clatter of keys as Clockblocker checked, "It's not taken." - Interlude 3
  75. Stinger / Tinker specializing in propulsion, mainly jetpacks and missiles.- Parahuman List, bolded edit by Wildbow
  76. The wings are a modification of technology that was confiscated from a cape called Stinger.  Missile themed, not wasps and bees.  They've got a venting-exhaust system we repurposed. - Drone 23.5
  77. ‘Scanner’ and ‘Screen’. Not hers. Teacher’s students. Loaners, part and parcel of her ‘payment’ for Khonsu.
    And with Scanner, she could read them. Draw conclusions as to their thoughts, their brain patterns. - Excerpt from Interlude 28
  78. ‘Scanner’ and ‘Screen’. Not hers. Teacher’s students. Loaners, part and parcel of her ‘payment’ for Khonsu.
    But the drawbacks made it impossible for her to use the service.

    Until now.

    Screen was a means of absorbing the drawbacks, allowing communication between the people in two-six-five’s network. He took the brunt of the images, allowed her to focus more readily, a router of sorts. He allowed Doormaker to handle requests without it taking her attention off what she was viewing. It meant the Doctor was lucid, recovering with every second.

    She could spy on everyone. - Excerpt from Interlude 28

  81. Blood Diamond had had an accident. The only reasons she could find for her own nomination to Blood Diamond’s position managing the girliest end of the girl’s side of the prison were her sweet disposition and the fact nobody else wanted the job.

    Well… Love Bite had wanted it, but Love Bite had her head torn from her shoulders. Teacup had wanted it, but Teacup had had her porcelain armor torn off, her head shaved, and her tongue torn out. No boys had even been involved in Teacup’s demise, whether the demise was marked at that point she lost her tongue and nearly died of blood loss or when she carried out a hunger strike and died of dehydration. - Excerpt from Interlude 15.y II

  83. Two’s power enhanced other powers. Refracted throughout the Yàngbǎn, it was what allowed them to have sixty powers at one fifth of the strength instead of sixty at one sixtieth. - Excerpt from Speck 30.3
  84. He felt a rush, just being part of the unit. Being a part of a maneuver that let them cut through a burning ruin of a building with the ease they had.

    Some of that rush, he knew, was the second path. Magnification of powers. Two wasn't present, she was too valuable to risk losing, but they still shared her power between them. Each of them had a sliver of her ability to enhance the powers of those nearby. It was the reason their powers worked to the degree that they did, a feedback loop in power augmentation across their whole unit.-Interlude 23
  85. King of Hearts was the only person of any meaningful rank who spoke the same language I did and who wasn’t mobilizing to leave. The leader of the Meisters, Vornehm, was giving orders in German. A scary-looking Master class cape with an army of clay men carrying tinker weapons was ordering other people around with the same harsh voice he was commanding his own troops. - ExcerptfromVenom 29.1
