Powers and Abilities

Dragonwing is a quasi-shapeshifter, who can substitute parts of his anatomy for dragonlike body parts. He can thus gives himself superhumanly strong limbs, wings, eyes that see in the infra-red range, robust scales, a fire-breathing mouth, big clawed paws, etc.


The Rising Sons are a Madripoor street gang composed of mutants. Without any special direction except survival and making money, they decided that if the world around them hated and feared them it might as well be for a good reason – and came out as mutants, tailoring costumes and codenames for themselves. The gang graduated to above the street level, and started to do some minor mercenary work.

They’re still in their late teens and early twenties, however, and despite an excellent track record and good skills and professionalism are not in the major leagues yet.

Those amoral truants have had good success and their endeavours, although it is unclear how they fit in Madripoor’s criminal turfs and hierarchies. During one documented case, they worked for the criminal business man known as Mister Noy and clashed with the paladin and Gen X, who were after an object stolen by Noy.


Spoilsport and Dragonwing the only white member of the gang ; they might be runaways from a High Town white family.


A bit bland. Dragonwing is the leader of the Rising Sons, but does not seem to be smarter or more charismatic than the others.


“I will slice off the rest of your face, you *fool* !!”
