While traveling through Talos Island, Coyote Storm received a request from another hero to aid him and his team on a raid of a Freakshow base. The hero told him the following:
There's been a great deal of chaos on the streets of the city, and a good deal of it has been started by a gang called the Freakshow. This highly factionalized group of nihilistic anarchists has become dangerous, fueled by a drug called Excelsior and their unwavering hatred of 'the system'. Their tenacity and wild abandon make them dangerous opponents. I just got a tip that the Freakshow have raided the Lockhart Aerotech weapons lab and made off with a mighty arsenal.
The Freakshow aren't just thugs with guns. They're well armed, well equipped, and crazy. With all the Excelsior in their system, many Freaks can barely feel pain. What's more, lots of them have undergone radical cybernetic surgery to turn themselves into walking death machines.
The battle was tough but the subject and his team were able to make their way through the base and confiscate the stolen weapons. There final objective was a juiced up Freakshow boss that we will call PWNZ for simplicity. The battle was tough but the team were able to defeat the monstrosity and bring him to justice. The city awarded the team a badge for their victory and service to the city.
