Extra weapons include lasers, machine guns, stun projectiles, and grenades.

National (Sara Isabella McBride)– A teenager who worked for the wildlife commission. She was hit by the cosmic energy and fell off a cliff while hiking, causing her to collide with a school of fish. She gained protective shimmering scales on her body and streamlined fins. National has the ability to breathe underwater and swim with incredible speed. She can manipulate moisture in the air and water, changing its state. She can also protrude sharp spines out of hands and back and also launch them. National has certain telepathic abilities with sea-dwelling creatures she comes into contact with.
Directorate/Directives – A dinosaur-like cyborg produced by the U.S. government as part of the false-flag invasion narrative. The government produces multiple of these creatures (called Directives) in order to deceive the public into thinking there is an approaching host of danger. These creatures were developed using the black-hole radiation, and have been the most successful for mass production because of an internal computer support. These creatures can launch a fiery breath, fly with the help of an internal gravity-reduction device, and have a tough skin fortified with synthetic-diamond coating. Their claws are deadly, layered with a thicker, synthetic-diamond coating that is underpinned with a new metal called “mettalate.”
Kaiser Kim-Jong – Kim Jong-il’s body resurrected using a mimicked version of the black-hole radiation. North Korean scientists manage to resuscitate Kim Jong using the artificial black-hole radiation module that is built into a robotic suit. The suit was built using a Nazi-era schematics guide and the neuron-computer system was created by Chinese government scientists whose work was exchanged for radiated rocks from the black-hole event. The suit contains various deadly weapons, but the most dangerous is the black-hole generator itself which, if exposed outside its container, weakens the powers of those who were naturally affected by the black-hole event. The box containing the generator’s energized rocks is made of metallate and lead in thick layers.
StateCraft – A U.S. fighter pilot who was hit by the black hole energy while dropping test weapons. He gains the ability to warp air and control weather in his proximity. His body can also fly with unmatched speed.

The Sophist (Steven Malafox) – A nationalist who seeks to make the state great again with his sophistry. He has the ability to hypnotize and cause confusion with his mind. His talents are often used for statist crowd control.
Bureaubats: When the government offered a $5,000 bonus to current government employees to participate in a new vaccine study, the results turned tax parasites into blood-sucking monsters! The “vaccine” was actually a test drug with nanorobots intended to mutate human genes with bat genes, leading to vampiric outcomes. The government workers awaken during the night, growing fangs and seeking out the last drop of blood they can draw from those they already leach from. The Bureaubats have enhanced speed and strength, and some are even able to sprout wings and fly. The vaccine itself leads only to temporary effects as strong UV light can blind their night-vision eyes and cause temporary paralysis. An electrical current of 50,000 volts or higher can cause the nanorobots to fail, undoing the genetic mutation.
Sovereignties – Government robots created by GARPA (Government Advanced Researched Projects Agency) to control protesters after government police and military suffer losses from a Voluntaryist onslaught.
Statelee – (Lee Kennedy) A city code enforcement agent who was struck by the cosmic radiation. He gains an ability to control minds of those not affected by the radiation to some degree using a brainwave manipulation. While he still works for the state, he often uses his powers for his own forms of petty tyranny.
AnCat – (Jasmine Jones) She was holding her dear cat when she was hit by the black-hole energy. Her cat died, but part of the cat’s DNA was mixed with hers, giving AnCat a chimera “feline sense” for danger and pain of others, enhanced scent power, and springy flexibility. AnCat’s main power is zero-point energy, which allows her to freeze objects within the energy, subject to a strain on her brain much like exhausting a muscle. She also has above-human healing and strength. AnCat’s love for liberty stems from her deep desire for privacy and the government taking away her cats.
Agora: (Estephania Fernandez) A Brazilian woman who had been forced into sex slavery. She is hit by the cosmic event radiation while in captivity and breaks free, killing her captors. She has enhanced healing and enhanced strength. Agora can turn on an “angelic” state which permits flight and eye beams. When in the angelic state, she can forge an energy staff which acts as a powerful wave-weapon. She also has telepathy with animals. Agora’s passion for liberty came from what she witnessed while in captivity. The local government officials received kickbacks from the sex slavers and, often, were customers themselves. Agora fled to the Middle East by air thinking that a desert region would obscure her from the public. She eventually came back to America when, upon seeing drone strikes, decided it is time to end the “war of terror.”
Volarchist – (Hans Rockwell) A young man from Germany who sold punk anarchist t-shirts as a hobby while living off his trust fund. While he was traveling to America for business, his plane was hit by the black-hole energy and knocked down. He survived and his powers grew.
Vollemur – A lemur hit by radiation while in captivity at the zoo. He grows to human size with super-genius brainpower. With keen vision and enhanced hearing, he can connect to the world around him deftly. Vollemur closely works with Voluntaryist. He considers himself a trans-primal, one who seeks to bring organic life and technology together (biotech).
Mack Lee – A black-ops agent defector. Mack Lee was one of the government’s best agents who was about to become a field director – an agent who acts as the supervisor for other black-ops agents.

Mack comes to save Voluntaryist and works closely with him to stop the government’s plans.

During the raid, she watched officers point guns at little children living in the home and was forever changed. On her way home that night, tearful at the wheel, she was struck by the cosmic radiation. She gained healing abilities, super-strength, flight power, the ability to blow ice cold breath, as well as a keen sense of others’ intentions. Her sense is so strong it could be considered a 6th sense for discerning lies.
AnarCat – (Voluntaryist animal friend) AnarCat was a regular street cat until she was transformed by the cosmic event. When she transformed, she grew in self-awareness and empathy and became drawn to other Voluntaryist characters. Seeking them out with her new-found awareness, AnarCat joins the Voluntaryist team as a companion of comfort. AnarCat has the ability to heal others by rubbing her head into an injured person. She also has a 6th sense for when danger approaches.
AnKid – (Pavan Patel) A young Indian orphan who was struck by the cosmic energy and transformed. He can shift his body shape, materializing various periodic elements and simple compounds.

Spooner (Earl Lorne Jones)– A package deliveryman who was hit by the black-hole energy en-route. Spooner has an enhanced pineal gland which allows for telepathy (speaking to others and listening) and telekinesis. He also has above-human healing and strength.
Van Rothbard (Self)– A college dropout hacktivist who was hit by the radiation while sitting at a café. She gains the ability to retain information near-instantly from reading, the ability to mimic what she watches, a genius for creative solution, and the ability to create an energy shield for protection. These things lend to her study of interest – computer programming/hacking.
Shadow V (Martin Rodney Smith)– A UK-based engineer. He was hit by the energy while working at a steel mill and his face becomes disfigured because the energy knocked chemicals onto him as he was transformed. He wears black garments with yellow undertones. He can control a smoke-like energy that allows him to float and fly and create shields for himself, much like a loose form of telekinesis. His smoke-like energy can also act as a paralyzing agent and can be thrusted as a physical force.
Panarchie (Jane VonHaus) – A coin collector whose collection was hit by the radiation while she was sorting pieces, transforming her with the precious metals. Her body turned into a soft, transparent gold frame with silver linings. Panarchie can mold metals in her hands and manipulate her body to some degree due to the malleability of her metallic composition. She uses her powers to fight the state as the state tries to ban public use of gold and silver as barter.
