-Regulator- Role: Firepower – HP: 120
Gameplay: Regulator is a sniper, excelling from extremely long range with little ability to escape on demand. The escapes she has often require some foresight to use since they revolve around laying down smoke or running far away, neither of which are conducive to getting away from an enemy who knows where you are and is prepared to use debilitating effects to stop you from running. Go undetected, though, and you’ll be a prime addition to your team’s damage output.
Lore: The lore for the characters is currently far from finalized and is subject to change, with only minimal details given as a precaution. Regulator is currently themed as a sniper/assassin for the Sci-Fi or Steampunk theming group.
Only the faintest of sounds could be heard from the smoke as a single bullet whistled by the Senator’s ears, cleanly dropping the bodyguards on either side of her. Two birds, one stone, she thought with a dry, macabre chuckle as the initial shock subsided. Only one marksman could accomplish that. And another bullet could easily have found her throat. Someone had paid good money to take her alive.
