Story
Detective Johnson is an honest Boston cop sometime in the next century. He has a secret, though - he's a member of the "support staff" for an armored vigilante called Dragon (a 500 point character). I don't have stats for Dragon; in the campaign in which I played Johnson, Dragon had just died, leaving the support staff to pick up the pieces. Several years ago Johnson lost an arm in the line of duty, and the department bought him a replacement.
