Bio: Well it appears that either the Digger is slipping or he pulled a fast one on the entire country by helping Rogue fake her own death, this runner was thought to have been captured and murdered in the most brutal of methods by being buried alive. Though in recent days Rogue has resurfaced and she has not stayed silent in any way shape or form, this one time Mariner has rejoined her fellow team members and forgone her frustration over the initial division. Rogue has been spotted within Downtown and Little Asia multiple times by tourist video and even by one unlucky SPD officer who will not be going home to his family, during a failed arrest of the famed runner.
I would want to believe their would be bad blood between Rogue and Digger, though witness reports indicate that the two have been seen conversing a number of times and even sharing what one can only assume a romantic interlude. So I will have to say that Rogue probably contracted the one man that could pull off the murdering of Tara and make the world and her friends believe that she had truly perished; seeing that nobody survives the Digger and I mean nobody. Well with conformation of Rogue being alive and also conformation that she is more than just the angry lesbian that everyone thought; it seems she is truly full of surprises and as well back to her old habits of causing carnage and tears to fall wherever she roams, for this is one angel that truly has fallen and ha blood soaked wings.
Rogue originally arrived on the scene sometime in the early 2050’s and would stick around until she faked her death in November of 2073, while this runner was working she has done basically everything and hasn’t lost a night of sleep over the lives she has taken, she has worked with everyone from the Digger to Baby Girl and has been part of multiple legendary teams. She would even be responsible for the rise of Crazy Glue and keep the Mother Hen and her children protected throughout the later part of the 2060’s, though eventually Rogue would once again see that love affairs and inter team romancing would drive yet another team into the gutter; she would stick it out with the Unknown Soldiers out of her kinship with King, Switch and Raptor though as the team turned into more of a dance party team with her once close friend Malice at the helm taking the ladies out each night, while the men sat around telling tales of what was. Rogue would grow dissatisfied and start to look for an out.
Well she would find the out she was looking for through her good friend and colleague the Digger, knowing that even the Unknown Soldiers, Wind Runners would never dare to move against the Digger out of fear and respect she could put together a plan that would allow her to pass on and be reborn as the runner and warrior she truly was. Though Rogue would not know about the assassination plot against Crazy and the impending shadow war that would consume the streets directly after, but this would work perfectly into her plan to vanish from minds eye and she would become yet another casualty of the War of the Runners. What Rogue didn’t foresee was the unification of the teams and the creation of Helix, nor would she be able to predict that Midnight would decide to live with her out of safety. This was not part of Rogues plan, but the cards had already been laid out and Midnight would become a true victim of the Digger when he would arrive to swift Rogue off her feet and into the cold dark night.
Rogue would vanish into the night on that cold dark November night but she wouldn’t be resting in a buried coffin, she would be training and honing her skills for her triumphant return to the mighty shadows. Now in the end of January 2074 we are blessed with the return of Rogue and the Mariners have yet another original member within their ranks. Rogue might be holding a deep dark secret of her past and mot her life has been shrouded in mystery, one thing is for certain the shadows will never be the same again.
Rogue as an adept is one of many skill and abilities, she has some mystical ability that harnesses her combative capabilities beyond that of a normal adept and she can cram far more combative cybernetic implants in then one would expect from a physical adept. She wields a very powerful focus that is her beloved ancient katana, that he found while traversing within the jungles of Japan. She also shows the skills of a gunslinger adept and can ready her AK or DAOD Assault Nemesis with the same grace and speed as any pistol, for Rogue has been active within the shadows for over twenty years and even when the Unknown Soldiers where starting to wind down do to the actions of Crazy, Malice and Barbie Girl she would continue to work and fight alongside her fellow Mariners within the Unknown’s.
Rogue has seen the trials and tribulations of what it means to become one of the premier teams in the city and than do nothing about it, including allowing known enemies to roam free and not follow simple protocol. For as famous as Crazy was she was not a leader and would drive the Unknowns straight into the grave, as she would rather party than prepare for an operation and that was even if she would even allow for the team to accept a job. This was part of the problem Rogue would have with her former teammate, and the disdain would grow over the years a Rogue felt it was her sole responsibility to protect the new breeder and keep her reputation in check as one hard ass bitch. Much of the inter team drama is a secret that it’s surviving members will take to their grave, though most of the failures can be levied at a small few members that have paid the ultimate price for their casual attitude.
We know have a reborn Rogue and one that is ready to fight the good fight, she has shed her Unknown Soldiers skin and has rejoined the Mariners; she might still mourn the loss of her friends from her past, but there is a new world before her and this time the enemy is quite real and she is content to be back in action with a squad that desires to fight. The Mariners have in a few short weeks proven that Old Seattle is here to stay and this is a world that Rogue knows all to well, this is a world that she excels in and a world that will never be prepared for the return of Rogue.
