Gold Brickers

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Overview

The Gold Brickers (also known as Goldbrickers) are a minor faction of high tech thieves with access to fly packs and sonic weapons who operate only in the island of Cap au Diable. This enemy group can be fought in City of Villains between levels 10 to 20 and is not present in Paragon City nor in City of Heroes in any way.


Background

Goldbrickers official info ( Copied from the City of Villains official website [1]):

The awe inspiring beauty of Aeon City is renowned across the Rogue Isles. Yet a glimpse into the shadows cast by Aeon’s gleaming white towers reveals a dangerous nexus of chaos lurking in the darkest nooks of this seemingly safe, clean city. Harnessing this thinly veiled chaos, the shadowy King Midas and his notorious gang of thieves, the Gold Brickers, maintain a firm grip on the urban crime of Aeon City and nearby Haven.

Monitoring the city from the highest rooftops, the Gold Brickers are no common street criminals. These high-tech thieves rely on unparalleled technological equipment and brazen aggression to target only the wealthiest of Aeon City. Able to make quick escapes with their jetpacks, the Gold Brickers have taken the heist to new levels of profitability, fulfilling rumors that any caper coordinated by King Midas does indeed turn to gold.

With their flamboyant finery and advanced equipment, the boastful Gold Brickers maintain a smug sense of superiority over the street thugs of Cap au Diable. After their bold break-in to the city bank’s central vault in 1991, Dr. Aeon swore to bring King Midas and his band of thieves to justice. The governor of Aeon City relentlessly seeks the true identity of King Midas so that he might rid his city of the Gold Brickers and their flagrant disregard for all he has worked so hard to accomplish.

Despite the ubiquity of the Gold Brickers along the city’s skyline, even Arachnos does not know the true extent of their technological capabilities. A force to be reckoned with, Midas and his Gold Brickers walk the fine line between helping Arachnos keep the thugs of Cap au Diable in line and threatening Arachnos with their technological mastery. Unable to determine the origins of their mind-boggling weaponry, Arachnos generally tolerates their existence while also covertly preventing them from expanding their sphere of influence. In order to contain King Midas and perhaps learn his secrets, agents of Lord Recluse monitor Gold Bricker activities, only intervening when they directly or indirectly threaten the supremacy of Arachnos.

Breaker

The Gold Brickers generally deal with their enemies from the relative comfort of the sky using their high-tech jetpacks, but the Breakers have found it more thrilling to out-maneuver their enemies in melee wielding heavy galvanized golden wrenches. Wile not inherently the most threatening member of the Langston Corp. crew, one powerful strike from a Breaker after the resulting vulnerability from repeated Gold Bricker sonic cannon blasts is enough to easily end many super-powered threats.

Smelter

Smelter

The Smelters have proven to be the catalyst that have transformed the Gold Brickers from simply a band of thieves with advanced equipment, to an organized and highly formidable group, capable of advanced operations and coordinated teamwork.

These new Gold Brickers were a concept born from the daughter of King Midas, as an application of her talent for tactics and critical thinking to the benefit of her father's gang.

This resulted in a new generation of Langston Corp men who are not only armed with this new formidable technology, but also trained in leadership and tactics, capable of commanding their squads to accomplish the mission. The Smelting Arms technology gives its wearer deployable thermal shields for self-defense, the ability to cauterize wounds, and dangerous ranged fire attacks.

Golden Brickernaut

Golden Brickernaut

The Golden Brickernauts are the culmination of all the stolen technology the Gold Brickers have accumulated from years of criminal activity.

Langston Corp's walking tanks were created using the schematics of Dr. Aeon's own power suit, Crey's energy weapons systems, and tied together with the Gold Bricker's own AU-System.

Despite such impressive foundations, the Gold Brickers lack of access to the same exotic materials as Dr. Aeon resulting in an inferior derivative. In order to boost its various capabilities, the Brickernaut armor overclocked its energy system, which if damaged could cause the power core to go critical...

King Midas

Lawrence Langston boasts having one of the most distinguished criminal careers in the Rogue Isles as well as control over a global corporate dynasty.

His reign as 'King Midas' was not without assistance however, and he struck many deals in order to obtain his both literal and figurative power. In a bid to accrue even greater strength, he became Dr. Aeon's science experiment and gained indestructible diamond-like skin in exchange for helping the doctor manipulate affairs within Cap Au Diable.

At a certain point however (likely after the birth of his daughter), King Midas decided to prioritize the future of the Gold Brickers over his dealings with Dr. Aeon, ending what was a colorful 30 year partnership in the shadows.

Princess Zoe

The woman who calls herself Princess Zoe is the daughter of the crimelord known as King Midas. While her father maintained the authority over his men through strength and command, his next of kin has won the Gold Bricker's undying loyalty through their hearts.

While Midas was originally opposed to his daughter's involvement in his gang, her stubborn insistence has proven herself as both a peerless tactician and a brilliant engineer who could someday rival Dr. Aeon himself. The new Smelting Arms tech that the Gold Brickers have recently been utilizing are an invention entirely of Zoe's own make, giving her men deployable thermal shields for self-defense, the ability to cauterize wounds, and dangerous ranged fire attacks.

Mr. Rodney

Mr. Rodney and his brickernauts

Mr. Rodney is a 'veteran' Goldbricker who has been promoted to role of a spokesperson for King Midas.

Whenever Midas wishes to bargain a deal with a villain or organization, he will send one of his spokespersons to do so for him.

He's been armed with an advanced version of the AU System combat gear, courtesy of customizations from Princess Zoe and using exotic materials they can't afford to incorporate into the standard-issue version. This, naturally, makes him far more powerful and dangerous as a result, and without any risk of the side-effects seen with the inferior unstable tech of his peers.
