Contact Introduced By[]

New Contact(s)[]

You should introduce yourself to Genevieve Sanders. She's a pharmacist with a heart of gold who does a lot of community work, and she loves to help heroes against the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. Genevieve is near the hospital in Kings Row.

She is one of the nicest people I know.

There's an engineer named Kip Cantorum who knows a lot about illegal technology. You should go see him; he might have some good leads for you on the Vahzilok zombies. Kip's business is in Galaxy City.

Kip should be able to help you.

There's an EMT named Paco Sanchez who'd like to meet you. He's not only great at his job, but he also works well with heroes, tipping them off whenever he sees something interesting going on with the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. Paco can be found in Galaxy City.

Paco primarily cares about saving lives.

I know a confidential informant named Lorenzo DiCosta. He can provide you with some solid leads on current Council activity. Lorenzo can be found on the streets of Skyway City.

You ever meet Willy Starbuck? He's a small time hustler, but he knows a lot about the Council, and he's willing to talk. You should stop by and introduce yourself. Willy grifts over in Steel Canyon.

Willy has the kind of mind that can lead you right to the heart of trouble.

You should consider introducing yourself to Laurence Mansfield. He is one of the more personable county coroners. He can be a very helpful resource on the Hellions and the Circle of Thorns. He is located in Atlas Park.

Mansfield has a strange sense of humor sometimes.

I'd like you to meet Ron Hughes. He's a reporter, and lately he's been interested in the Skulls. Ron's magazine is located in Kings Row, so that's where he can be found.

Ron believes that science should be used for the good of all.


Police Detective

Detective Jose Brogan is one of many policement who volunteered to transfer to Paragon City after the Rikti War. So many officers had died during the invasion that the police department faced a serious resource crisis, one it is still recovering from. Originally from Philadelphia, Brogan has already begun to make a name for himself in Paragon City, and he's become especially adept at dealing with the city's stranger homicides. He is also part of an informal alliance of officers dedicated to taking down the Lost.

Initial Contact[]

Looking forward to busting bad guys with you.

Talk to Lt. David Wincott[]


Have you heard about the Hollows? Ever since the Trolls moved into Eastgate, the Paragon PD has been fighting a losing battle against them. If you're willing, I'd like you to go talk to Lt. David Wincott of the Trolls Task Force. He could really use your help in reclaiming the Hollows. Of course, we can really use your help here, too. Wherever you'd like to lend a hand, you'll be welcome.

The Trolls are the worse problem in the Hollows, but they aren't the only one. I'll let Lt. Wincott fill you in.

Hollows Briefing
Eastgate used to be a nice residential neighborhood with a view of the ocean. Before Trolls moved in, that is. On a quest for more territory, a group of Trolls headed into the sewers under Eastgate with the intent of blasting open a large area. What they didn't know that that there was already an extensive cave warren beneath the area. Their blasts destabilized the ground and collapsed a large section of the zone. When the dust settled, the surviving Trolls realized that they had found an excellent area for expansion. This event became known as the Hollowing. Since the Hollowing, other groups have moved into the area, including the Outcasts, the Circle of Thorns, and the strange rock-like creatures known as Pumicites. The Paragon City Police Department has its hands full trying to expel these threats so that reconstruction on the Hollows can begin.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Lt. David Wincott

Go to Kings Row and stop the Lost rampage[]


We've been seeing a lot of violence from the Lost in Kings Row. They've been attacking businesses, sometimes to steal the merchandise, sometimes just to destroy it. I need you to get to Kings Row and stop the Lost rampage.

Crowne Memorial and the Gish are reporting a lot of Lost thefts. You might want to start in those neighborhoods.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat Lost in Kings Row
    • Defeat 10 Lost

You have discouraged the Lost from looting businesses in Kings Row.

The Lost violence seems to have no rhyme or reason, but I suspect there's a greater plan in the works here.

Find the missing homeless people[]

Notable NPCs

Missing homeless person: How did I get here?
Missing homeless person: Thank you for getting me out of there.

The Recruiter: Heroes! Don't let them rescue the new blood!

Good work rescuing those people. We need to find out who brought them down there, and for what purpose.

Hit the streets and defeat a few Lost[]


The doctors over at Chiron Medical Center want some more data on these mysterious Lost. If we can find out what has happened to those homeless people, we may be able to help them. I need you to hit the streets and defeat a few Lost. Take some blood samples, then bring the data back to me.

Field reports have groups of the Lost in Kings Row and inside Perez Park. Good luck.

Icon clue generic
Medical kit
This medical kit contains sterile swabs and a dozen syringes. With it, you should be able to sample enough Lost blood to give the doctors some insight into the strange changes taking place among the homeless population.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Collect blood samples from Lost
    • Defeat 10 Lost

You have collected enough blood samples from the Lost.

Icon clue generic
Blood samples
You took these blood samples from the Lost you defeated. They may help the doctors at Chiron Medical Center determine what has turned the homeless into the Lost.


Thanks. I hope your efforts have brought us closer to solving this mystery once and for all.

See Perez Park Security Chief[]


The Security Chief for Perez Park asked for you by name. You should take that as a compliment. Go talk to him. He's located in Atlas Park near the gates to Perez Park.

Perez Park is a dangerous place these days. Clearly the Chief thinks you can handle it, but take a couple of friends with you, just in case.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Security Chief


Take this briefing seriously. I need you to deal with some of the Circle of Thorns mystics that have been plaguing the area. Try looking for them in Bettis Hills.

Icon clue generic
Perez Park briefing
Perez Park used to be a beautiful place to take your family for an afternoon picnic. Now, no one in his right mind wanders in there. Most of the area has been abandoned, largely due to the rumors of unholy Circle of Thorns rites taking place deep within the forest. The park is entirely overgrown, a perfect place for those strange mystics to summon up a demon or two. This zone is so deadly that even heroes shouldn't go in there in groups of fewer than three.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep the peace in Perez Park
    • Defeat 10 Circle of Thorns

I guess the Chief's confidence in you was well placed. Fantastic job.
