Missions Edit

Talk to Iris Parker about the zombie attacks Edit


Welcome to SERAPH, Scientific Experimentation, Research and Application to Paranormal Humans. It's come to our attention recently that individuals are being pulled off the streets by creatures that can only be described as zombies. Normally this would be MAGI's bailiwick, but they say they've seen no new mystic residue lately. I think these zombies may have been created by medical means. Fascinating, yes?

There's an elderly lady named Iris Parker who witnessed one of the assaults. I'd like you to talk to Mrs. Parker about the zombie attacks.

Do let me know what you find. I can only imagine the foul den these creatures come from!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Iris Parker


I was walking back from the grocery store, when out from the sewer a horrible creature appeared. Its flesh was rotted and grey, and its skin was covered in stitches. I feared for my life, but the creature ignored me. It grabbed Alex Carter, a newsstand owner near where I live, and dragged him into the sewer! I'll gladly tell you where this nightmare occurred, if you could rescue that poor dear.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat all zombies in sewer
    • Find Alex Carter


They were handling this Alex Carter fellow with care, eh? That could mean a lot of things, and most of them aren't good. I want to know more about this 'doctor' they mentioned. I hope I can count on you to help me investigate.

Learn about the fallen heroes of Paragon City Edit


As a new hero, you should know about those who have come before you. I think you need to learn about the fallen heroes of Paragon City. It will be a short history lesson, but an important one.

Go read the plaque under the statue of Atlas. He was a great man, and the city remains thankful to him to this day. Atlas Park is named in his honor, you know.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Read Atlas' plaque


This statue commemorates the heroic death of the mighty Atlas. On December 7th, 1941, the Forces of the original 5th Column launched a surprise attack on Paragon City. Atlas single-handedly fought back a large group of advancing 5th Column soldiers, and prevented them from gaining a foothold beyond Independence Port. His brave sacrifice held the area until the Freedom Phalanx arrived and drove back the invaders.


Atlas was a great man. He protected the city from a devastating surprise attack in 1941 by the 5th Column. Without his sacrifice, who knows how many lives might have been lost? I've noticed many people pause in the shadow of his great statue; it's as if they feel safer there.
