Meet the individual parts which make up the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W. and the mission codenamed
Name: COMMANDER 007
Rank: uh, Commander
Weapon Of Choice:
"Burning Lead" Oscillator Recon Unit
A Quote: "I thought I told you never to call me here."
One of the world's most skilled secret agents, Commander 007 acts as the primary communicator with the populace through the use of several disguises. His findings are often invaluable to other members of the crew. Utilizing the "Burning Lead" Oscillator Recon Unit as his main source of firepower, evasive maneuvers can be taken through a coordinated effort between COMMANDER 007's secondary limbs. A daydreamer at heart, he is nevertheless practically-minded in his research, and approaches science in general with a spirit of discovery. As Commander of the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W., his single-minded devotion to his mission is both his greatest asset and his most obvious weakness.
Rank: Tactical Specialist
Weapon Of Choice:
Rhythmic Confirmation & Support Module
A Quote: "Some can learn from books or teachings, but the rest of 'em have to piss on the electric fence for themselves."
As the solid righthand man of COMMANDER 007, RAIDER-X is a skilled marksmark, almost second to none. Encompassing the fighting spirit of a cowboy from the old west, he often acts on his insticts rather than his intellect. Locates and identifies possible threats to the mission and informs his comrades. Acting as Tactical Specialist, he is often responsible for the movements of the group. In addition to his use of the Rhythmic Confirmation & Support Module, RAIDER-X carries a concussion blaster ('X' marks the spot). While likely the physically strongest member of the group. his uninhibited nature often gets him in trouble. Can be baited into dangerous situations where he is an easy target for enemies.
Rank: Heavy Artillery Officer
Weapon Of Choice: Encased Hyperconductor Synchronization Interface (E.H.S.I.)
A Quote: "Kill we must terminate kill we must."
Daring in battle, R5DW40 is part man and part machine. He believes victory will come via technological advancement. Adds twin scramjet modules and liquid hydrogen fuel tanks to escape the gravity of the planet. As operator of the Encased Hyperconductor Synchronization Interface (E.H.S.I.), he is by far the most heavily armored member of the crew. In addition to his already vast supply of firepower, he is able to perform virtuosic percussion fills activating a backup generator which supplies the entire group with more power. Prone to occasional mechanical failures due to advanced technology.
OTHER NAMES TO KNOW:
(the good guys)
As the supreme leader of the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W., GENERAL CASUALTY is often responsible for providing the band with new mission assignments. Though he rarely attends debriefings in person, he can often be found giving orders on a monitor screen or hobnobbing with the ladies at any one of a number of watering holes in Vector Sigma.
As navigator of the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W. mothership, Centre Neptune, AGENT VENUS is responsible for blackhole-free navigational control, and when called for, kicking GATTLER ass.
SPECTRE 38 (aka YURAK-38)
Though the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W. team of COMMANDER 007, RAIDER-X & R5-DW40 is a trio, this was not always the case. YURAK-38 was often called in for reinforcements during the group's early mission outings, prior to being disintegrated on the outskirts of Vector Sigma. He has since taken on the form of SPECTRE 38, a mysterious apparition who appears from time to time.
PROFESSOR Z is often responsible for providing the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W. with invaluable research on the populations of the Third Planet. He serves as another vital link in the group's efforts to accomplish their mission.
GRANDPA X is the head of the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W. training facility. A cool and calculating individual with the voice of a Scottsman and the look of a native American, it is his responsibility to provide training for new mission recruits, as well as appropriated test subjects.
AGENT SNIPEHUNTER acts as courier for top secret mission data from General Casualty and others. His favorite food: pizza.
(the bad guys)
GATTLER THE TERRIBLE
GATTLER THE TERRIBLE is the arch-nemesis of the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W. He commands a variety of invasion forces, and will stop at nothing to take control of the entire universe. Other than that, he's actually a pretty nice guy.
GAREX THE DEPLORABLE
GATTLER's former troop commander, GAREX was atomized in a head-on attack by the Agents of S.H.A.D.O.W. He isn't missed.
HAGGAR THE HORRIBLE
As GATTLER's resident cross-dressing witch, HAGGAR provides not only some very intriguing invasion plots, but also a healthy dose of comic relief.
REAR ADMIRAL ZEBULON
ZEBULON serves as the conductor of the Tonedeaf Tabernacle Choir, a squadron of singing alien troopers that combine the bad taste of top 40 radio with brute force in order to accomplish their objectives. ZEBULON is often thought to be GATTLER's righthand man, though GATTLER himself considers him to be expendable.
A mysterious member of the Tonedeaf Tabernacle Choir, DIRK DARING rarely contributes to the off-key singing, preferring instead to speak in the voice of William Shatner. Few enemies ever hear him speak and even fewer live to tell about it.
Essentially serving as the Jar Jar Binks of GATTLER's forces, WOLFIE is uneducated, unintelligent, and prone to the violent outbursts of a drunken redneck. What he lacks in social graces, however, he makes up for with the needless destruction of anyone who stands in his way.
