It began with a request from Portal Corporation. One of the data
scanners they were using to monitor Praetorian Earth had gone dead. You
investigated, and learned that the war wolf the scanner had been
attached to had been slaughtered. The scanner had been deactivated in an
effort to lure you to the Praetorian world.
Portal Corporation's problems had just begun. Shortly, all of their
scanners went dead, and you were sent to investigate once more. You
learned that Shadowhunter had destroyed all of the wolves that had been
tagged with the scanners. You also learned that the scanners had been
given to the Praetorian androids, Siege and Nightstar.
Portal Corporation deemed the Praetorian seizure of the scanners to
be a serious security risk, so you were sent to Siege's storage facility
to recover them. You learned that the scanners had been sent on, to a
lab belonging to the Praetorians' twisted engineer, Neuron.
You were next sent to Neuron's lab, where you found most of the
scanners. You also learned that a few scanners had been sent to a second
facility, where they were being modified to serve some dark purpose.
Thanks to Tina Macintyre's skill with dimensional mechanics, you were
able to locate the second lab and retrieve the last of the scanners.
While there, you learned a shocking fact: the scanners were being
modified so that the Praetorians could scan Statesman. Paragon City's
most beloved hero was in the Praetorians' clutches!
While at Neuron's lab, you made one other discovery: a warrior clan
from Battle Maiden's home world was trying to contact Neuron. They
promised to swear allegiance to him if he would help rid them of Battle
Maiden's tyranny. You resolved to help the clan, and perhaps learn a bit
more about the Praetorians' plans. You saved the clan's village and
rescued Kawago, the clan elder. Unfortunately, you learned nothing about
Statesman's imprisonment or the Praetorians' plans for him.
You resolved to continue the search, but an emergency in a Paragon
City neighborhood distracted you. People were being attacked by their
own shadows. You went to the neighborhood, and found that Black Swan's
shadow minions were behind the mischief. You beat them back, and learned
that they had mentioned a prisoner on Black Swan's Shadow World.
With a little help from Tina Macintyre, you tracked Black Swan to her
home dimension and rescued her prisoner. Although you were disappointed
to learn that the prisoner was a young man named Julio Jimenez, you were
intrigued by his story. It seemed that he had been taken from his own
dimension. Black Swan had kidnapped Julio for information about his
world's ruler, but the young man was too terrified of his master to even
Once again, you had hit a dead end in your search for Statesman.
Fortunately, Portal Corporation hadn't. they had turned up a likely
location: a Praetorian asylum run by the cruel Mother Mayhem and her
vicious lackey, Malaise. You searched the asylum, but found no sign of
Portal Corporation provided another lead: a mystical torture chamber
under the control of Infernal and Diabolique. You battled the villains
valiantly, but, once again, you turned up no leads.
Your investigation was put on hold once more when the Praetorians
Marauder and Dominatrix invaded a Portal Corporation lab. You repelled
the invaders and rescued the Portal technicians. One of them had
cleverly scanned Dominatrix, after overhearing her mention a recent
conversation with Statesman.
You now had the location of Statesman's prison, along with enough
information to free him. You battled the evil Tyrant himself and
destroyed his force field generators, allowing Statesman to make his
Paragon City is a little brighter now, with Statesmen back among its
people. There's no doubt that you. like Statesman, have earned a place
among the city's brightest stars.
