So what is this thing all about?

It's a system for heroes to be informed of emergencies where and when they're happening so that they can respond to them more efficiently.

Cool. How does it work?

Heroes carry a portable device that functions essentially as a beeper. It's patched in to 911 calls in the Porter cities and goes off when there is a dispatch of emergency services, and will display the type of emergency and its location. It also has opt-in GPS tracking, basically asking for permission to use your location, which can be toggled on or off at any time. This feature can be used to locate and contact nearby heroes should trouble arise while answering a call.

What do the devices look like?

Generally in the form of a wristband/wristwatch or alternatively something like a PDA/palm pilot.

Who has access to them?

Only registered characters can get directly patched into the 911 calls, but the devices can be programmed to forward the information to the devices of unsettled characters. That way if anything untoward is done with this information by an unsettled character, it can be traced to the device that forwarded it.

My character is in trouble and wants to call for help from a Hero. Do they have to call 911 to reach them?

Nope. There's an app for the government-issued communicators that's compatible with the devices and can be used to send an alert to the Heroes directly. This is one of those apps that will ask permission to use your current location, much like Google Maps, which you can give/revoke at any time. If location-tracking is turned on, and your character makes a distress call, their location will be included in the alert to the Heroes. The only people who can access this information via the app are the device holders, and not the government or the military.

Does this mean my unsettled character can get away with fighting crime without a vigilante status using this system?

Sorry, nope. Not that easy to get around the military's rules!

My character isn't really a fighter but I still want to get involved. Can I?

Of course! There's plenty of ways to help out in an emergency, after all. Healers and medical types are always useful, or perhaps your character can teleport or is a technopath who can redirect traffic away from the emergency site. Whatever your character's powers or skills, there's surely some sort of use for them.

How do I sign my character up?

IC-ly, contact Wild Tiger or Barnaby Brooks Jr. This can be handwaved if necessary. If your character is unsettled, the calls will be forwarded to them from the device of their original point of contact. (i.e. if you signed up through Wild Tiger, his device forwards calls to yours).

If you'd like to have your character volunteer to help manage device distribution and records-keeping, let me know!

Echoes Received:

[4/14/13] 1st Echo- A memory of Ben Jackson was informing him of the buyout of TopMag and that he would now work for Alexander Lloyds of Apollon Media, ending with the line “I’ll always be a fan of Wild Tiger, got it?”

[4/14/13] 2nd Echo- A flash of the Ouroboros symbol

[4/14/13] 3rd Echo- His Wild Tiger mask

[4/21/13] 4th Echo- The burn scar on his shoulder

[4/24/13] 5th Echo- A persistent sense that someone important is missing from his life.

[5/05/13] 6th Echo- His original crapsuit hero suit

[5/09/13] 7th Echo- The name "Maverick". No first name.

[6/15/13] 8th Echo- Enhanced reflexes/muscle tone. Essentially what would come of fighting high-profile crime (armed robberies, bombings, etc) near-constantly for over a decade as opposed to having been a regular cop for a similar amout of time.

[6/15/13] 9th Echo- Parkour-ish skills, like those used in Episode 1 to get the kid's balloon out of the tree

[8/05/13] 10th Echo- A memory of the scene with Maverick where he gives Kotetsu (drugged) tea to drink and his actual drinking of it keeps getting interrupted. It'll be out of context so all he'll know is that he's talking to an older man about someone being missing and what might have happened to him. There are a couple references to his name/the nickname "Bunny" which will be muffled/too hazy to remember and won't stand out in the memory.

[9/21/13] 11th Echo- Audio-only memory of a woman saying No matter what happens, please be a Hero. Promise me that. No context for who she was, but the feeling that the promise was very important to him.

[9/27/13] 12th Echo- His wire watch

[11/21/13] 13th Echo- The feeling that there is something deeply, personally significant about calling someone "partner" that differentiates them from a "friend", and also a strange sense of lack--as if he once had someone he called partner, but doesn't anymore.

[12/01/13] 14th Echo- The feeling that trust had been A Big Issue with someone very important.

[12/02/13] 15th Echo- The bar scene with Karina, where she asks him why continues being a Hero, and he says it is because he likes saving people, and that's all the reason he needs. He won't remember who Karina is, or how she knows him, though.

[12/17/13] 16th Echo- This pin

[12/19/13] 17th Echo- The scene with Ivan in which he questions his usefulness as a Hero, and Kotetsu tells him there has to be something only he can do.

[12/21/13] 18th Echo- His outfit from The Rising

[12/21/13] 19th Echo- The memory of the scene where Kotetsu fires his grappling at the bronze statue and gets tied together with Barnaby instead, bickering included. However, as they're both in the suits and only the faceplates are up, he'll probably only get a sense that the man looks vaguely familiar, rather than fully connecting the dots of the man in the memory to the man he's met in Locke.

[12/21/13] 20th Echo- 1/10th of his Hundred Power, without the ability to control it. Currently only covers strength and speed.

[12/26/13] 21st Echo- The scene from the first audio drama where teenage!Kotetsu goes out to fight Antonio.

[1/08/14] 22nd Echo- A brief memory of the scene with his child self glowing inside a bank and telling someone that they shouldn't get any closer because they'll get hurt. He'll hear Legend's voice saying "and why is that" (in response to saying that they shouldn't get any closer) but he won't see his face or know who he was, or get any further context for the memory.

[1/08/14] 23rd Echo- Basic knowledge of NEXTs, including that the sign of a NEXT is the neon-blue glow, that they began to emerge 45 yrs ago but the reason for it is unknown

[1/25/14] 24th Echo- Tier 2 for January. Enhanced durability (at 10x like the strength and speed) and control of the piece of Hundred Power he's gotten--i.e. no more random spurt-ups, being able to turn it on/off at will.

[2/22/14] 25th Echo- Audio-only memory of Barnaby saying "Let's go, Kotetsu", accompanied by the joy he felt in that moment.

[3/09/14] 26th Echo- Kotetsu's recklessness in the face of danger. His personality won't be affected outside of direct threat to himself or especially others, but in those situations he'll regain his tendency to act on instinct and without regard to his own safety.

[3/09/14] 27th Echo- The burn scar across his torso from H-01

[3/09/14] 28th Echo- A brief flash of himself falling out of the sky after his Hundred Power ran out

[3/09/14] 29th Echo- A memory of the infamous princesscarry, along with the sense that the person who saved him was someone very important.

[3/09/14] 30th Echo- Wise Snake Tier 2 "Leveling up" all currently regained facets of his power from 10 to 20x

[3/09/14] 31st Echo- The knowledge that he knew someone who was referred to as The Wind Wizard.

[3/09/14] 32nd Echo- A "memory" of how much pain he was in from his injuries after Jake Martinez beat the crap out of him. No actual context whatsoever.

[3/23/14] 33rd Echo- Knowledge of examples of NEXT abilities, though not who possessed them.

[4/10/14] 34th Echo- The memory of fighting the animated Mad Bear toys on the bridge.

[4/12/14] 35th Echo- Tier 2 for April 1. The basics of what Hero TV was. 2. The knowledge that Albert Maverick was the man responsible for its creation and someone he deeply respected.

[4/14/14] 36th Echo- The knowledge that he was afraid/ashamed of his powers as a child and attempted to hide them from his family.

[4/21/14] 37th Echo- The memory of the scene where Kriem broadcasted her message from the Ouroboros blimp demanding the release of Jake Martinez, with the threat of sinking the city if they do not comply.

[4/23/14] 38th Echo- The knowledge that a mental blackout like Anthony's was a result of one's memory being tampered, though he won't know how his past self knew this.

[4/30/14] 39th Echo- The Wild Tiger trading card from episode 1

[OOC]

Backtagging: Oh god yes. I would not function in RP without backtagging.
Threadhopping: I'm gonna put an 'ask first' on this. 9 times out of 10 I'm likely to agree/be highly amused by the prospect/encourage it myself.
Fourthwalling: Not for this character, please.
Offensive subjects (elaborate): I can't think of anything specific offhand for the purposes of RP. If I'm uncomfortable with a topic I'll let you know.

[IC]

Hugging this character: Perfectly acceptable! If you're a child or a teenager, he'll hug back and ruffle your hair. After that, his reactions will vary depending on his relationship with your character/the situation, but he'll likely be a bit awkward about it unless you're a close friend.

Kissing this character: Cheek kisses, he'll flush and be all kinds of embarrassed, but accept them. Lip kisses are fine with me but he'll pull away instantly and aside from the flushing, he might be annoyed or angry, depending on who you are and if you know about his late wife. An in-game ship would lead to a different reaction obviously, and that's too much teal deer for this meme ;)

Flirting with this character: Feel free. It'll go right over his head unless you spell it out for him.

Fighting with this character: Talk to me first to plot things out, but this is totally okay.

Injuring this character (include limits and severity): Again, ask first! I love injuring him, but we'll need to talk about severity in the case I had other things planned. Also, nothing permanent, such as severing limbs or damaging his eyes/ears/etc.

Killing this character: Absolutely not without express permission and pre-plotting, and I won't do this more than maybe once or twice in Exit Void and Mask or Menace. In Save the Earth, this is straight out, sorry.

Using telepathy/mind reading abilities on this character: Go ahead! Give me a poke so I can let you know what's going on in his head. C:
