Presenting Agent Rosencrantz! I transferred Rose to Justice from Protector when CoH:Freedom went live. His original name was Flamestrike. The concept for the character actually comes from an NPC I used for an old Rifts campaign. The general idea was a guy who turned to human augmentation as a means of survival and revenge after his family (and entire town) was killed by monsters. The end result was a somewhat loopy/zany fun-loving guy who could suddenly turn wicked scary in the blink of an eye. I think I’ve captured that in Flamestrike/Rosencrantz.
The name “Rosencrantz” comes from a mercenary (with a love of Shakespeare) who could never get remember the real names of anyone, and thus gave them nicknames.
