"It wasn't, I don't have anything that would do that. I just usually don't unmask, my team thinks I'm paranoid."

"Is there a particular reason for you to be more careful than them? Not that you need one, just," shrug, "trying to map how your world works."

"My identity's tied to my dad's because we're publicly father and daughter, and I like my cape name more than my real name, and I don't plan to stay in the Protectorate after I graduate the Wards - that is, I don't plan to continue to be an official government superhero after I turn eighteen plus or minus six months."

"Some people like a mutant nickname slash codename better than their birth name, that's not unusual for us...did you tell us yours? We haven't been, uh, using names much the past few years, I'm not sure we would have retained it if you did..."

"That's pretty. Does it mean something?"

Permalink

"Latin for 'armor'."

Permalink

"Very nice."

Permalink

"Thanks. Rete means 'network'."

Permalink

"Oh, that makes sense, I figured it was just a name."

Permalink

"Nah, I wanted a theme."

Nod. "I would've used Hebrew but statistically speaking you're probably not Jewish."

"I am not. And while I don't go out of my way to reassure the local Nazi-themed gang that I'm not a priority target I wouldn't really be inclined to go the opposite direction either."

"...Local Nazi-themed gang."

Permalink

"There's a lot of gang activity, much of it supervillain-spearheaded, and Brockton Bay has a chapter of the Nazi one, plus a weird pan-Asian one, and some smaller ones, yup."

"Dad was a Holocaust survivor."

Permalink

"It does kinda rub salt in the wound that we have a family history of genocidal bullshit but, like, also I really want to do something definitive to your nazi gang."

Permalink

"They are unfortunately inaccessible but off the top of my head I don't think any of them are immune to mind-affecting stuff."

Permalink

"What are their powers?"

Permalink

"- not wearing my helmet, so Rete's not going to be able to pull up data for me, but off the top of my head there's Hookwolf who turns into a metal wolf thing, and Kaiser who makes metal things in whatever shape protrude from surfaces, and Crusader has a self-duping power of some kind, and Purity's flying artillery - that's a catchall for people who fly and shoot, there's also 'Alexandria package' for flying super-tough folks, those are both common combinations."

Permalink

"Ooh, Hookwolf and Kaiser'll be fun."

Permalink

"You'd have to find them first. And stick to nonlethal, they play by the rules too much to have kill orders."

Permalink

"...I'm not planning on killing them but that's...completely separate from any governmental rules about whether I can or not. They're nazis and I'm a holocaust survivor's daughter and our government created the Sentinels."

Permalink

"Well, uh, my government didn't?"
