After his rescue from imprisonment and torture at the hands of the new government he helped to put into power in his homeland, Rico led a small army of about two thousand men and women against his former allies, the Black Hand, and the mysterious EDEN Corporation. The numbers seemed hopeless, but he did not give up hope.

He could never quit that easily.

In the end? They did it. They won. Manuela is dead, the Black Hand has been forced out of the country, and the EDEN Corporation's technology is under control. While much of the technology has been given to the Medician military under Rico's guidance, and other rare pieces are in his hands, Tom Sheldon made off with some Bavarium shielding for the Agency, effectively betraying Rico's interests yet again.

"I will admit, I am awesome."

A new storm is brewing on the horizon now, and Rico will face his greatest challenge yet...

Special Technology:

The Grappler- what started as a high-powered magnet only able to attach to vehicles has evolved into a gauntlet. The initial home-made one is a trophy, now. The newest he wears was designed and 3-D printed by Dimah Ali Umar al-Masri, a former field agent and old friend. This new model, in the words of Dimah, has a "lesser chance of violent limb detachment." These things are important, in the long-run. The Grappler has a built-in screen that lets Rico get in touch with his black market contacts.

The Parachute- Always fond of showboating, Rico's favorite parachute style is one bearing a bold scorpion emblazoned on it. He grew fond of the motif during his stint in Panau, where he operated under the guise of an international gun-for-hire called the Scorpion, or Scorpio to the locals.

The Wingsuit- Another invention of Dimah, the wingsuit is a new tool in Rico's arsenal. It is not bulky, and many will not even notice its presence. The jacket he wears and the harness he keeps on have the secret prepared for use whenever he needs it. He has been in possession of this for less than a year, but he has taken to it like a natural. When used effectively with his Grapple, he is quite nearly able to fly. Landing can be rough, even with the installation of an air brake. Faceplanting happens. A lot.

The Bavarium Mod Wingsuit- Not always activated and only used in severe circumstances, the cyan blue wingsuit gives Rico a booster pack powered by the deadly element. It acts like a rocket engine, but it does have a cool-down period between uses. When about to crash into the ground, Rico is able to kick off and stay airborne with this mod active. SAMs register him as an aircraft and will attempt to shoot him down during use. The mod features a machine gun and rockets, both usable over his shoulders. Most importantly? Landing is now possible, rather than faceplanting or hoping the air brake works. Like all Bavarium equipment, the wingsuit's power pack glows blue when in use and when at rest. This was designed by Dimah Ali Umar al-Masri for Rico shortly before her death.

The PDA- Outdated, somewhat bulky, and utterly reliable. The PDA works on satellite service rather than cellular, meaning Rico is able to contact those he needs to anywhere he goes without fear of losing connection unless extreme circumstances arise. The PDA also gives Rico a detailed map of his surroundings, and allows him to mark waypoints to plan his journey and make his way back should he get lost.

The CommLink- Another recently updated piece of technology, Rico's CommLink allows him clear and instant chatter with others wearing the same and on his encrypted frequency. It has proved invaluable since his work in Medici. It is worn in the ear. It was a gift from Tom Sheldon and every former rebel has one.

The Voice Modulator- A stolen piece of Black Hand tech, Rico can distort his voice to match that of his enemies, should he need to use it.

The Eviction Drone- Using Bavarium-based ammunition, the Eviction Drone is stolen eDEN Corporation technology. It is white with partial grey paint and blue Bavarium lines. It is armed with machine guns and missiles. It is equipped with both anti-air and anti-ground weaponry, making it a very strong ally all-around. A faithful "pet," it follows Rico wherever he goes...even though it is likely to crash into buildings in cities or high slopes in the mountains.

The Bavarium Splitter- The first of Rico's Bavarium-powered weapons, the rifle features the distinctive blue glow of Bavarium and a very sci-fi appearance. The weapon exposes regular ammunition to radioactive and reactive Bavarium in the chamber, which causes a violent explosion. it is an extremely lethal weapon at close and mid-range, and has become Rico's favored rifle.

The Anvil Omni Directional Industrial Mech, AKA Lifter- A large, four-legged workhorse, the Mech features a gravity manipulation device on the left and the right is modified to suit the tastes of the user. The Bavarium Splitter variation acts like the rifle of the same name that Rico is so fond of now. The Autocannon fires powerful laser blasts and is best against other vehicles. The Fire Leech is a missile mech. The mech gives its users a custom HUD and is as durable as a tank.

The Power Core- This tool acts as a key to power generators featuring Bavarium technology, and it glows blue like the rest of the technology featuring the mineral. It is, in essence, an EMP-gun. It is not effective against vehicles but it will disable other Bavarium-powered weapons and mechs to allow for easy hijacking and taking enemies down. It has been shown to work against normal helicopters.

The Loochador- A modified (and stolen) piece of Black Hand technology, this jet-powered and armored boat is armed to the teeth. In stock condition, this boat was meant for stealth, but that's not Rico's way. The Loochador features two missile launchers on large frames that extend off of the vessel, two miniguns on rotating connectors on the front, and a revolving radar antenna on the top. The boat is incredibly agile and can reach 140 knots on rough waters with the help of Rico's nitro mods.

The EDEN Spark- This is, in all honesty, a goddamn lightning gun. The weapon resembles the build of an assault rifle and is held with two hands, the stock against the shoulder. The front of the weapon is shaped like an antenna. Described by Sheldon as "a crazy science weapon," the weapon shoots a laser beam at a target which then calls for a bolt of lightning to shoot down from the sky and destroy what has been pointed out. The lightning strike can be moved and controlled with serious effort. The Spark does run out of power, but it recharges itself.

"You were good. I was better."

  • "Wait! Wait!" She throws up a hand, "congrats on uncle status! Hah. Beat you to it." That is not how it works, Sam.

  • "Then, it's a good thing you know a storm bringer or two isn't it?"

  • "...If I say yes will you take me with you?" She's grinning, just happy to talk to him.

  • "I feel like I know you from somewhere. Have we met?"

  • "You make my life sound horrifyingly boring, Rick. Do you need a co-pilot? I can hack cameras. Throw rocks. Ride a horse."

  • "What's shaking good lookin'?"
