Okay everyone, I have a really good feeling about this one! When doing Blacklist: Midnight, I pondered why Blacklist didn't have his own team to combat Captain Hollywood's Ally's. I mean, he has a near endless army, all of whom have unique qualities and abilities. And if he's going to destroy Los Angeles, his archenemy is a huge thing in his way. While he may be able to fight off Captain Hollywood himself, his friends are another story. Then I thought; "Heck, why don't I just make a team for him?". And so I did.
Meet the Star-Slayers, Epsilon!
After several fights with Captain Hollywood, Blacklist thought of him as only a minor inconvenience against his mission. However, when more of his kind appeared, he seemed to prove too bountiful with allies. While Blacklist had an army of rescued victims,he knew not one of them could combat against Captain Hollywood. Although, he found several that could possibly fight against his allies to help in his endevours. If Captain Hollywood was to have a army of skilled and powerful individuals, so would he. And so, Blacklist formed a special task force from his own people. Now serving under Blacklist, they are given missions to skillfully destroy Los Angeles without detection. And to stop Captain Hollywood, along with his allies. They are... Epsilon!
QuickBio: Abigail Graham and her twin sister, Lindsey, were inseparable as children. Whenever they were together, they would always be seen happy as could be. Even though they didn't grow up in a big city or town, they made the most of it. Both if them were amazing at gymnastics, excelling at each lesson given. While Abigail wanted to soar to olympic levels for her hometown, Lindsey just wanted to have some fun. When going to the nationals, Abigail found herself being a finalist against her sister. Lindsey, however, knew how important it was for Abigail to win. And so, she lost on purpose at the final moments of the competition. Abigail was never told of this, but she was just happy to bring home the gold. And Lindsey was just happy to see her twin sister so glad to have won. Although, no one really let down the fact that Lindsey could've easily won but hadn't, which eventually lead to her quitting the gymnastics team. Abigail tried to cheer her sister up, but to no avail. As Abigail remained on the team, and her twin sister went on to join the drama club to get rid of her qualms. There wasn't much change between the sisters besides their passions. When it came time for Lindsey's first play, she was absolutely phenomenal. It just so happened that a talent scout from Los Angeles was watching the play from the side, and told Abigail and Lindsey's parents about how she had the makings of something spectacular in show business. Something far greater than theatre, but television instead. And so, they were offered a trip to Los Angeles for the chance at a audition for a children's sitcom. They accepted, and the twins found themselves on a multi-state trip. And Abigail's sister didn't drive all that way for nothing, and put her heart and soul into her audition. The next thing Abigail knew, her family was moving to Los Angeles for her to be part of her new show. Abigail was given stacks of homework every night due to the closest school being two cities away. She didn't mind, as long as it made her sister happy. Behind the scenes, however, Lindsey was pressured by her co-stars to take up smoking to increase her focus and performance. This went on for months, until photos were realesed that depicted Lindsey putting out a cigarette bud. The network was shocked and appalled by this, since Lindsey was supposed to be a role model. Finding no way to bounce back from this, they cancelled the show entirely and fired Lindsey. Lindsey was in a complete greivance, blaming herself for so many people being fired and that she could've gone to the top of the stars if she hadn't taken up smoking while the show was still going. Abigail was disturbed by how Lindsey's co-stars could pressure her own sister into smoking. Their parents were never told about what really happened, Abigail vouching for her sister and said the show was cancelled due to budgeting. Nonetheless, it was nearly impossible for them to move back, and money was starting to strain. Lindsey found it upon herself to fix what she did and make amends, going to every audition she could. It wasn't until she met Frank Morning of the Late Show that she was given a chance to get back on top. She would be given an opportunity to become a guest speaker every other episode for Frank's show. On Lindsey and Abigail's eighteenth birthday, the little star of the family went to guest star for a little show. Her popularity skyrocketed after her first appearance, people clammering to know what happened before and after Lindsey's show. Lindsey found some of the questions Frank asked to be a bit intrusive, but she held her head high and smiled for the camera. Abigail was struggling to find any gymnastic classes to hone her talent, and was starting to think it was because of Lindsey she was stuck in this rural city known as Hollywood. After her shows, Lindsey was offered to go to several clubs, to which she accepted. It was there she was introduced to alcohol, drugs, and many other desirables. Abigail was invited to some of these clubs, to which she found appalling. Especially since they contained strippers and everyone kept mistaking her for her sister and tried picking her up. After so many trips to these clubs, Lindsey was feeling hungover and withdrawaled every single day. She was shaking, her eyes bloodshot, and looking like she was nothing but bone. During one of her guest showings, she barfed onto Frank's desk and suffered a seizure soon afterwards. She made a full recovery at the hospital, but the paparazzi hounded her soon after. No matter where they went, Abigail and Lindsey were pictured in everything. When Lindsey started to see the tabloid articles on her, she took them to heart. After her parent's car crash from a drink driver, she spiraled into a hole she felt only liquor, meth, and pills could solve. Abigail tried to reason with her sister and send her to rehab, but she refused. Lindsey got into a drunken rant with her sister, explaining that she lost the championship on purpose because she felt pity on her sister. Abigail stormed off after commenting about how her sister had changed into someone she wasn't. That night, Abigail tried to call back her sister to apologise for what she said. But her calls were never returned. The next morning, Abigail woke up to her phone ringing from an unknown number. She answered it, only to have the biggest shock of her life. She ran every red light she saw, going as fast as she could. She couldn't believe it, not for one second. But it was true, and the proof was on the sidewalk, behind the police tape and chalk. No one had even bothered to put a tarp on her. Lindsey was dead, the cause of which no one knew. It could have been overdose, since cocaine was seen snorted up her nose. It could have been suicide, since her throat was slit. Or murder, since the back of her head was busted up. Lindsey could barely see what had happened, since all of the paparazzi were surrounding Lindsey's body, to which they would write preposterous stories that would trash her namesake. Abigail pleased and begged for them to stop this, that this wasn't what her sister deserved. It wasn't until a officer brought out a rape kit that she lost it. She punched everyone in sight, saying that Hollywood was the reason her sweet sister was like that, that it was the reason she died. She screamed, saying that Hollywood changed her into something horrendous and terrible. She ran back to her apartment, trying to find her handgun and track down whoever killed and defiled her sister. But then, she realized that would be impossible, since Los Angeles was filled with avaricious pigs and angry punks. She thought it was hopeless, and was about to give up everything entirely. It wasn't until she went for a walk down an alleyway from a diner that she was approached by a hooded figure. She pulled her gun at him, but he merely crushed it under his grip. Abigail exclaimed that if he was going to kill her or take her money, she wasn't going down without a fight. The figure chuckled, and showed off a smiling face. He called himself Blacklist. He explained that he knew of Abigail's pain, and only wanted to help her take down those who were guilty in this wretched city. She couldn't refuse a chance to take down those who hurt her sister, and accepted his offer. For weeks, she lived with people like her, those who experienced pain because of the city. It wasn't until on her birthday that she was approached by Blacklist once more. And again, she accepted his offer without a second thought. With the help of some rescued engineers and special effects technicians, she was outfitted with a new set of threads so to speak. Weeks of training with Blacklist has lead to only one thing. Now, she plans on taking revenge on Hollywood for what it made her sister into. Now... She is Mist Magnus!

QuickBio: The top of the Los Angeles police academy, Richard Blake was determined to bring justice to Hollywood. After graduating, he made it his mission to get rid of crime from Hollywood's streets. Especially since his wife, Georgia, was soon found pregnant with his child. And so he did, putting away as many criminals as he could. After stopping a mugging from a reality show producer, Richard was offered a show of his own. One about the daily struggles of a police officer in the big city, and his determination prevailing through. Richard accepted, seeing no harm in a little spotlight for his many services. And he could use some money for his wife and unborn child. After several months, Hollywood P.D. hit television stations across the country. While Richard could've dealt without a camera crew always behind him, he did like the feeling of being appreciated. Ratings were high, and Richard was starting to become a star. Luckily, Georgia was there to remind him to not let the fame get to his head or work. However, months after the show aired, Richard was appointed a new partner, Mike, after his old one was shot in the leg during a raid. Mike proved to not be photogenic, demanding they blue his face and not speak of his identity at any time. However, while driving on patrol, against Mike's words, he jumps out of the car to arrest a thug for beating up a man for not paying, and saves the man after fighting the thug. But it turns out that Mike won't help him arrest the assailant, and instead Richard learns that Mike is corrupt after letting the criminal go. Not only that, but take a pay off, along with a bag of pills. All of this was caught on camera, and Richard told Mike he was going to have to report him. But Mike replied by saying that everyone in the police force was in on it, and threatened Richard's wife and soon to be born child. Richard froze up, terrified by this notion. He told the cameraman to not show this on television, but to keep the tape just in case. Later that night, Richard woke his wife and told her that they needed to leave and that he'd explain everything on the way. Before Georgia could even get out of bed, Richard was hit in the back of the head with a blunt object. He awoke to find his apartment burnt down, and his expecting wife was dead. Not long after, he claimed Mike of being corrupt in a courtroom, claiming that he was being paid off and that he killed his wife to scare him into compliance. He even brought the tape as evidence. But, the judge was paid off, and said that there wasn't enough evidence and that the video could've been staged. Richard hung up his badge, not wanting to be part of a corrupted force. His wife's face haunted him day and night, screaming for him to help her even though he couldn't. He took to the bottle, and was found extremely depressed. After watching some TV, he was beyond shocked and outraged. Mike, his former partner, was offered his spot on Hollywood P.D. after he quit. Since he wasn't proven guilty of extortion and murder, he was completely eligible to be TV-ready. Richard was outraged, not being able to believe the network would be so money-grubbing as to hire the man who ruined his life. He couldn't believe that justice was not delivered, and that corruption was rewarded. Hearing about a mysterious figure in the shadowy alleys from some soup kitchen residents, he was hoping he was some sort of mercenary or assassin. One could make Mike pay for his injustice. If the police weren't going to deliver justice, he was. He believed in the system, but it betrayed him. Although, this figure wasn't exactly what he expected. He called himself Blacklist. He heard of Richard's qualms, and understood the pain he indured. He offered Richard a new life, a new home and family away from the wicked. Richard accepted, and was going through something he had long forgotten, peace. But he still wanted Mike's head, and was counting the days before he would take him down. After some time, Blacklist offered him something new, a way to deliver their own version of justice upon Hollywood. Outfitted with a special suit, he will make those who believe they can hide from the law pay. He is... HardCase!
