Hello MetaVerse fans!
(Were still working on a final name for our ‘verse 😉 )
This weeks reference sheet is Spitfire! As with the PrimeVerse, little is really known about her background, so we had to out our thinking caps on. Moreso will be elbaorated on in her wikipedia entry at a later date! Without further ado heres her bio blurb:
Despite an initial interest in the armed forces of the Canterlot Commonwealth, Spitfire’s athletic prowess and leadership abilities led her to a career in law enforcement in Equestrian City.
Sadly even busting bad guys and writing citations became less thrilling and more boring to Spitfire, despite being remarkably good at her job. It was said that some in the department were feeling she was making them look bad due to the sheer volume of arrests and convictions she was getting compared to them.
As the years rolled on, she was awarded Equestrian City’s Stun Baton of Honor, the highest commendation possible at the time. It was not long after that Spitfire was transferred to the ECSWAT, where she continued her climb in the ranks, rising to the rank of Captain. Wounded several times in the line of duty, she received three Honor Bandage Badges and finally the Commonwealth Badge of Excellence, awarded by the elected Celestial herself at the time.
As the Canterlot Disaster came and went, Captain Spitfire was part of the concentrated effort to calm the ensuing paranoia and civil unrest EC had fallen into. Enlisting the best and brightest, the squad she assembled brought order to chaos and were a vital element during the riots.
As the era of MetaCrime began to rise, Spitfire’s Wonder Squad were the first to try and beat back the new super powered crime wave. After losing many in the line of duty and nearly losing control of several sections of EC led to an new arm of ECPD being formed: J.U.S.T.I.C.E. Its purpose was to take the fight back using both cutting edge technology from private contractors and those endowed with magical powers choosing to serve.
Commissioner Luna chose Spitfire to lead the entire department. It was both a huge honor and a disappointment to the woman who’d been in the face of danger most of her life.
As the city grew and evolved, the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. charter expired and a new power, an armored special forces unit was to replace it. The trials for the new power armor were set to begin after the winner of the contract presented its first prototype: The Wonderbolt Mark 1. Spitfire leapt at the chance to be the test pilot, working hand in hand with Rare Innovations, regardless of how unthrilled Commissioner Luna was at her enthusiasm instead of letting a professional test the suit.
Now in its early stages, the new Wonderbolt Armor Mark 1 is deployed along with regular ground troops as both back up and spearhead positions to Meta Human incidents, class B and above.
And of course Moon Pearls epic reference sheet. We did a bit of reworking on her suit from the original concept. We wanted both a Rocketeer / Cliff Secourt feeling but still enough room for when the final
War Machine Wonderbolt Armor is conpleted.
See ya next time. Dont forget to drop ny discord and say hi!
