    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    I always thought "Crabclaw" would be more of a secret identity for Karkat :X

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Thanks for the compliments everyone.

    I went down the route of Tavros having no excuse for his evil ways because it seemed like a fitting and radical departure from his canon personality. Most everyone else in the Troll!Cops AU is acting within their personality from Homestuck. So to have someone be a definite and jarring change felt appropriate. It seemed that this was part of the reason earlier in the thread that Tavros became 'Mr Pupa'. Sometimes people just evil. Tavros makes excuses for himself - the lack of respect for his intelligence, the constant babying because of his disabilities and so on. But in reality, he does everything because he can and enjoys it. And to make a note about something from the story: He doesn't have multiple personalities, he just named his dominating emotions of rage (Rufio) and cunning (Mr Pupa), it helps organize the thoughts streaming through his twisted mind.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    I think Nepeta should think up a new name for Karkat's superhero persona every odd day.

    ":33 < *is in awe of Crabclaw, bringer of justice!*"
    "I THOUGHT IT WAS ANGRY WEASEL."
    "X33 < Nooo!! That was a stupid name!"
    "AND AFTER THAT IT WAS THE PINCER."

    Okay, I'll stop. I'm terrible at writing dialogue. <.<
    Yes.

    Maybe that is my problem with it, Tavros not being a victim just feel... wrong.

    Tavros was the son of incredibly rich parents who had an unfortunate "accident" with stairs. He later claimed that "he warned them about stairs"

    I could see that, it isn't like Karkat would care for the name as long as he can go around beating up bad guys people he don't like without being recognized.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    In my origin story for the RP Tavros, he was a victim. He was very, very much a victim.

    This is a glimpse of that.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Conflicting origins! Maybe Tavros gives a different origin tale everytime he's asked about it. He's gone so far down the path of Mr Pupa that he has forgotten who he really was beforehand. Sometimes he's a victim, sometimes he's just pure evil. It just depends on his mood when he's asked.

    I imagine Karkat's superhero persona as something like Lobster Johnson from the Hellboy comics.
    How about the name 'Cancer Vantas' and he marks his victims with the Crab's Claw after he mauls them.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    No, this is his origin in the RP.

    You see, when he was little he broke his legs and his lusus died. He begged on the streets. Due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he got sent to prison, where Miss Kanaya Maryam conducts illegal and unethical experimens on children.

    His legs hurt all the time.

    He went crazy in there after she enhanced his power and he felt all the lab animals at once.

    Now he's free, and he wants two things: better legs, and to free everyone in prison. Yes, even the murderers. Yes, even the rapist. Ironically, yes, even the doctors of dubious morals. THAT is his revenge on the city.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    @wigmund: A little too elaborated for me. In my head to only reason goes around in a mask is to not attract attention on Nepeta and Gamzee, both of Mr.Pupa and the other criminals. Leaving his mark, flashy costumes, battle cries, things like that are good for Egbert man or showoffs like Crowbro, he just care for the results (beating up bad guys).

    Huh, for a second there, I thought that was the Midnighter. Maybe that could work, with Gamzee as some sort of Doctor, and Nepeta as a feline Swift.


    (for those of you who don't know what the hell I'm talking about, those three are from The Authority, a comic book series in which a group of authoritative superheroes take no prisoners and protect Earth from threats within and without (courtesy of the laconic TV Tropes page). The three characters I mentioned there are (Midnighter) a combination of Batman and Kenshiro, with a healthy dosis of sociopathy, the Shaman of the World (The Doctor) who can do pretty much anything, and a woman (Swift) who can grow wings and turn her hands/feet into bird claws)

    I totally support this.
    Sometimes he needs to be a victim to create sympathy, making his enemies hesitate enough for him to catch them off guard.
    Sometimes he needs to be horrifying to scare his minions into serving him.
    But no matter what, he must hide his true past, so that no one can use it against him.

    With all the bullshit they have to deal with in the APD, you have to wonder what goes on during the recruit's
    Orientation



    Probably not as good as what was originally in my head.
