TIME: YEARS PAST THE MILLENNIUM
It is a few years past the Millennium and Dr Dex Zena is INFURIATED.
As a former high powered GOVERNMENT AGENT with his nose in many areas (including the SEEDY and
LICENTIOUS New York UNDERGROUND), as well as a renowned radical scientist and professor in
Theology, Dr Dex Zena TRULY believed the end of the world would come by the YEAR 2000.
EVENTS occurring toward the turn of the century confirmed to Dr. Zena, that the year 2000 would
bring ARMAGEDDON. The signs 'were clear! Zeia was so sure, in fact, that he even convinced
many of his ex-employees (who happened to be prominent members of local militias) that this was
fact aid they helped him prepare for this almighty CONCLUSION.
Zeng is like a better functioning idiot savant. He is brilliant in what he does. He sets his
mind to a goal aid achieves it - no matter what.
Over the years, Zenla has developed a MEGALUMANICAL complex that many suspect may have been
caused by the use of SYNTHETIC DRUGS he's made for the government and tested on himself and
other family members.
Like the few megalomaniacs in history, he actually thinks he is the KEEPER of the EARTH. The
Father Nature, the Chosen One. He feels that anyone in his PRESENCE should bow before him AS
THOUGH he WERE god.
When the MILLENNIUM hit is at 12:01 am January 1, 2000
Filled with outrage intensified by those who surround him, Dr Dex Zena insists that SOMETHING
He knows from his years and years of reading, teaching and hypothesizing that IT WAS SUPPOSED
Fortunately, Dr Zeng had a plan in CASE sornething, like this did happen.
He is prepared to FIX the Apocalypse - to FORCE it - to CORRECT the malfunction.
And the scary part is - HE IS ONE OF THE VERY FEW WHO CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Dr Zen.7 now believes that it is HIS JOB, to, AT ANY COST - END THE WORLD. 'Nith the help of
biological warfare devices and several militant followers, as well as his connections in the
Underground, it shouldn't be difficult.
BUT, one of Dr. Zena's lab assistants, Snapper, decides she can no longer stand this man's
corruption and calls on a friend to help in stopping him.
With this act she helps bring together what will he known as one of the most VOLATILE TEAMS
IT'S TIME TO END --- THE END OF THE WORLD

Snapper has contacted a rough and ready Private Investigator who is well known for her
dealings with the city's underbelly. Mace is one hot woman with a taste for blood as well as
desire. She's the one who teases and taunts you just before she takes you out.
Mace Daniels has heard of Dr Zeig through Snapper and can't believe what she's hearing. She
never thought of Dr Zang as dangerous but then again, she hasn't exactly been paying attention
She believes the freaked-out Snapper and sees this as an opportunity to set some of the things
she loves most danger, fame and fortune.
Mace is beautiful - kinda' like Lara Croft. MACE DANIELS

to her assailant rather than say, 'Hey punk!" Mace is
a woman aware of her sexual magnetism. Yet, she STATISTICS:
couldn't care less about men. She is always being
pursued without giving ANYONE the time of day. Age: 21

Well, nice guys finish last, and Hawk learned that lesson all too well.
He has run into Mace several times and though the two are acquainted, they have never spent
any real time together Hawk has seen Mace fight and this is the one thing that stirs him inside
like nothing else. When Mace approaches him for the job - by pinning him to the ground,
smiling, a sexy smile and telling him that she needs his help, Hawk is DEFINITELY stirred!
Hmm...there's some sort of chemistry here, but both are too headstrong and stubborn to admit
it. Hawk has several jobs at any given time, but he takes on this job because it is his choice
to get closer to the elusive Mace Daniels. In addition to that, he also took the job because
it is the first job in a long time that is tinged with a bit of "goodness".
After Hawk Manson agrees on briining Dr Zeia down, he heads to one of the world's most,
dangerous prisons to find Ben (Smasher) Jackson,
Ben Jackson has been serving multiple life sentences.... and the prison is very fond of him You
see, they've been renting Ben Jackson out. The public doesn't know it, but it cuts down inmate
deaths and above all, it brings the prison a wad of money every time he gets sent out.
The Prison's number one and repeat client of Ben's is Hawk Manson. Hawk has been bribing the
prison for years. He wants Ben to be set free and made the bargain to "contract" Ben 15 times.
Sorta like Rent to Own
Only a few problems: Ben is like a loose cannon. He smashes EVERYTHING in sight. His temper
is immeasurable during heated times and you never know if he'll turn on YOU next.
