The Sentinels of the Stars: Kagápe
September 8, 2014

We’ve had a cybernetic badger with huge guns; a water elemental with a heart of gold; and a psychotic axe-wielding “alien.” Next up in my Atomic Robo RPG  versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy is our fourth Sentinel of the Stars, the assassin to end all assassins: Kagápe.

Kagápe

KagapeKagápe is the most lethal lady in the solar system, if not over a wider swathe of space. She’s the product of a Majestic 12 supersoldier program that had happily used some kind of technology recovered from “The Nos” to adapt her, change her, and improve her. She has a connection to The Nos, now, something that simultaneously thrills and empowers her, and disgusts her. Either way, her abilities left her uniquely suited to acting as an assassin, the likes of which Earth had only seen maybe one time before in some guy named Jenkins. And that was at the beginning of her career — she’s only gotten better. She eventually left Majestic 12 when they were talking about modifying her more, particularly to ensure her obedience, with some kind of lobotomization. She was able to find a place for herself with Tesladyne, and specifically with the Sentinels of the Stars, hoping that such a position would eventually put her in direct contact with The Nos.
