Overview[]


The Sister Psyche Task Force was the third of six Freedom Phalanx Task Forces. It has been replaced by the Penelope Yin Task Force, but is still available in Ouroboros as a flashback.

Missions[]

The Stop the Freakshow from wrecking the office and Stop the Freakshow from carrying out their act of terror can come in reverse order.

Agree to form a task force[]

Briefing

I have sensed a great disturbance in the natural order of our world, and the Freakshow are involved. The nature of imbalance is not yet clear to me, but I need you to investigate the Freakshow. Perhaps you can learn something from one of them.

I know of a den of these ruffians in the sewers. I will monitor your progress closely.

Mission Objective(s)

Sister Psyche was correct, this den appears to be a Freakshow hangout.

  • Investigate the Freakshow

On one of the Freaks, you found a note.

Brent Thomas's story
When you rescued Brent Thomas, he told you:

'I'm lucky you showed up. The Freaks have been trying to force me to perfect this sonic wave projector. I think I'd feel safer if you'd take the latest version of the device with you. I want nothing more to do with it!'

Debriefing

It seems the Freakshow had plans for this Brent Thomas and his sonic wave projector. We will have to keep an eye on them.

Take the device to Andrew Fiore[]

Briefing

I need to find out why the Freakshow are so interested in this sonic wave projector you recovered. Please take the device over to Andrew Fiore. He's agreed to examine it for me.

The Freakshow are searching for this object fervently.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Take the device to Andrew Fiore

Briefing

Sister Psyche said you would be coming by, and I have never known her to be wrong about anything. This sonic wave projector? Hmm, looks like it was adapted from pre-existing technology of some kind. Could be Council. But I think it more likely dates back to the Council's earlier leadership. Either way, I'm sure the Council want it back.

Debriefing

So, that sonic wave projector was adapted from a design created by one of Requiem's many minions. Perhaps the Freakshow stole the original device from them.

Now we may have to worry about the Council as well as the Freakshow. The situation grows murkier.

Stop the Freakshow from wrecking the office[]

Briefing

Someone of something is guiding the Freakshow toward a specific purpose. I think we have to assume that the sonic wave projector you found is in some way critical to their plans. I believe you will learn more at the office complex I will guide you to. I sense many Freaks converging there, with destruction in their minds. I need you to stop the Freakshow from wrecking that building.

An emergency force field should mitigate the situation, but hurry. I can sense that the disturbance is building toward a climax.

Mission Objective(s)

This area is infested with Freakshow, but there's a strange mechanical resonance underlying the gangers' furious battle cries.

You have defeated the Freakshow and neutralized their sonic device.

Enemies

Notable NPCs

  • Devastation (Noise Tank - Boss)

Debriefing

I cannot clearly see what the Freaks are trying to accomplish. But I am sure they have big plans for this sonic device of theirs.

Stop the Freakshow from carrying out their act of terror[]

Briefing

The disturbance I have been sensing seems to spiral ever wider. The industrial complex I will guide you to is surely involved; I am certain the Freaks plan to deploy their sonic wave projector there. Everything remains murky; the only thing I sense is that a great act of destruction is planned. Please go to the warehouse and stop the Freakshow from carrying out their act of terror.

The Freakshow are planning something very large. I have never sensed this much order to their normally chaotic plans. I have called for an emergency force field, to help you contain the violence.

Mission Objective(s)

A strange vibration echoes through these buildings.

  • Defeat Punkadelic & his crew

Destroy the sonic device! You have defeated the Freakshow and disarmed their sonic device.

Enemies

Explosive pieces
These fragments are all that remains of the Freakshow's sonic device, which you disabled. The fragments resemble the sonic wave projector originally developed by the Council.

Debriefing

That warehouse has not been used regularly for some time. Why would the Freaks choose to deploy their sonic device there? Another mystery.

I've had an expert visit those buildings where the Freaks deployed their sonic devices. According to him, the walls and foundation ahve experienced significant stress. It seems that the Freaks' sonic devices can bring a building crashing down! You may have disrupted their tests, but I am certain we have not yet seen the full scope of their plot.

Investigate the dispute between the Freakshow and the Council[]

Briefing

The pattern is finally beginning to come together in my mind. I have sensed a presence of Freakshow and Council agents in the same locale. Go and investigate the dispute between the Freakshow and the Council. I believe we will learn more about these sonic bombs the Freaks have been constructing.

There is a connection that eludes us. Find it.

Mission Objective(s)

The raucous battle cries of the Freakshow fill the air, mixed with the clipped orders of the Council.

  • Defeat all Freaks and soldiers

You defeated the Freakshow and the Council.

Icon clue generic.png
Minion conversation
The Freakshow and the Council both spoke of a person called Clamor. A former member of the Council's previous regime, Clamor defected to the Freakshow, taking advanced sonic technology with her.

Debriefing

It sounds as though this Clamor person stole this sonic wave technology for the Freakshow! And the Council isn't happy about it.

Perhaps we can now begin to unravel the Freak's mysterious plan. I have no doubt they wish to use their sonic bombs for great evil.

The Freaks' master, Clamor, remains at large. Fear not; together we will find her and bring her to a different end than the one she is expecting.

Speak to Koslowski about the dangers Clamor might pose[]

Briefing

Clamor seems to be an important personage among the Freakshow; I think we shoud learn more about her connection to the Council. I know of one who might help us. His name is Robert Koslowski, and he is an expert in such matters. Speak to Koslowski about the dangers Clamor might pose. Whatever wisdom he has to share with you, use it well.

The road to capturing this fiend is far from over. Steal yourself for the journey.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Speak to Robert Koslowski

Briefing

I understand you want info on Clamor. I think I can help you out.

Clamor worked in research under the Council's previous leadership, until her love of havoc eventually drew her to the Freakshow. When she left, she took a lot of technology with her, technology the Council feels is rightfully theirs. They don't trust her. Under the Council's old regime, she was always a wild card. Now that the Center's in charge, I'm sure he'd like nothing better than to eliminate her.

For a while now, I've been watching the base Clamor stole her sonic technology from. If you go over there, I think you might find some more info on her agenda.

Mission Objective(s)

The base's defenses are undergoing extensive re-construction.

  • Defeat all soldiers in base
    • Seek information on Clamor

You defeated the Council and found some information about Clamor.

Enemies

Clamor dossier
This dossier contains information on Clamor, who left the Council's previous leadership to join the Freakshow. It discusses the ramifications of her departure, including the possibility that the sonic technology she stole could be used for a weapon of mass destruction.

Debriefing

Based on this file you found, it sounds like the Freakshow sonic bombs may be much more powerful than we had guessed. Good work. I believe the information you uncovered will aid us in our battle.

Defeat the Council and Freakshow and find out what it is they seek[]

Briefing

I sense another confrontation between the Freakshow and the Council. This time they are located in a government office of some kind. Defeat the Council and the Freakshow and find out what it is they seek. I feel we are getting closer to learning the Freaks' plans for their sonic bombs.

I believe the office has something to do with monitoring the environment of Paragon City. There is a man there who will help you; his name is a tree of some kind.

Mission Objective(s)

You can hear the sounds of conflict before you even step through the doors.

  • Defeat all Freaks and soldiers
    • 3 office workers to save

You defeated the Council and the Freakshow, freed the office workers, and found the man Sister Psyche told you to seek.

Pine conversation
When you rescued Gregory Pine, he told you:

'Those Freaks were tearing this place apart looking for detailed scientific information about the bedrock that lies beneath Paragon City.'

Debriefing

Did you find the man I asked you to seek, the one named for a tree? Gregory Pine, yes, that makes sense. What did he tell you?

The Freakshow are interested in geological data? Strange. We must follow up on this information at once.

I can sense that Clamor's plan is nearing fruition. We must stop her!

Patrol Talos Island[]

Briefing

I need you to patrol Talos Island for me. I sense the Freakshow all over that area, and I think they're up to something big. If you can greatly anger the Freaks, I may be able to get a psychic bead on their base location.

Hurry, I can sense the danger growing stronger. If the Freaks have plans for those sonic bombs of theirs, we must move quickly!

We must find out what Clamor's plan is as soon as possible.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Patrol Talos for Freakshow
    • Visit 5 locations

Your actions have had a profound impact on the Freaks' psychic energy. You feel and impulse to visit a local cave, and you realize that Sister Psyche is guiding you.

Mission Objective(s)

Freakshow slogans and graffiti have been crudely carved into the cavern walls.

  • Bust Freak leader and his crew

You defeated the Freakshow and discovered Clamor's plan.

Enemies

  • Axel-F (Blahpunk - Boss)
Icon clue generic.png
Axel conversation
After you captured Axel, a loud-mouthed Freakshow gangster, he revealed that Clamor plans to deploy her sonic bombs beneath Brickstown.

Debriefing

Clamor used her own men to pull my senses away from her real target, the area under Brickstown. Astounding. She may be a tougher opponent than we realized.

Does Clamor intend to kill everyone in Brickstown with a massive sonic explosion? It doesn't make sense; many of her own men are incarcerated there. I must concentrate.

Disable the sonic devices[]

Briefing

I have seen Clamor's plan. She has placed her sonic bombs in several key locations that correspond to weak spots beneath Brickstown. If she is able to detonate those charges, she will turn that zone into another Faultline! You must disable the sonic devices!

Access the first bomb through a sewer entrance in Kings Row. The other two can be reached through sewer access in Skyway City.

Mission Objective(s)

A strange, irritating vibration rings in your ears.

  • Disable sonic devices

You defeated the Freakshow and disabled the sonic bomb.

  • Disable the second device

    • 5 hostages to rescue

Debriefing

Your victory over Clamor will be the stuff of legend, my friend.

If Clamor had succeeded in setting off those sonic bombs, the Ziggurat would have crumbled. Thousands of evildoers would have been released onto the streets!

Now that very prison will house Clamor and her compatriots. I can rest easy, for you have unraveled the twisted pattern Clamor was weaving. I am very grateful.

Completing Clamor and Destruction Task Force from Sister Psyche awards the Sister Psyche's Comrade Badge.

Sister Psyche has expressed her gratitude by presenting you with this medal.

Souvenir[]

Sonic bomb fragment

This hunk of metal used to be part of a weapon of mass destruction. Now it's simply a reminder of the adventure you've come to think of as:

Clamor and Destruction

While investigating the Freakshow for Sister Psyche, you were sent on a mission to rescue a young scientist. He handed over a device he called a sonic wave projector, which he was forced to develop for the Freakshow. A tech expert named Andrew Fiore suggested that the device was adapted from pre-existing 5th Column technology.

Sister Psyche was able to sense two locations that were part of the Freakshow's plan. Under her guidance, you disarmed two sonic bombs that would have demolished the buildings they were placed in. The bombs appeared to be related to the 5th Column technology used to develop the sonic wave projector.

Sensing a convergence of your enemies, Sister Psyche sent you to a 5th Column base, where you defeated hordes of Freakshow as well as many 5th Column soldiers. All these underlings spoke of a person called Clamor who defected from the 5th Column to the Freakshow, taking advanced sonic technology with her.

Sister Psyche asked you to speak with Robert Koslowski, who directed you to the 5th Column base from which Clamor stole her sonic technology. At that base, you uncovered information about Clamor and the scope of her technology. You were alarmed to learn that the stolen tech could be used to build a weapon of mass destruction.

Sister Psyche then sensed that the 5th Column and the Freakshow were converging on a government office that specialized in geological surveys. She guided you to a hostage, Gregory Pine, who told you that the Freakshow were there looking for data about the bedrock beneath Paragon City.

Next, Sister Psyche turned her powerful senses on a large concentration of Freakshow in Founder's Falls. They proved to be no match for you, but you learned that their activities were nothing more than a distraction designed to lure you away from Brickstown, Clamor's true target. With the help of Sister Psyche, you were able to locate all three sonic bombs and prevent Clamor from turning Brickstown into a seismic disaster area. You also prevented the Ziggurat from crumbling, thus saving countless lives.
