Hoyden is the team leader for the Austin Wards.

PersonalityEdit

Golem noted that Hoyden lived with layers of defenses around herself - bravado, sarcasm, aggression, and so on. He suspect that "there were very few things that really got to the heart of Hoyden. When they did, they hurt." [1]

AppearanceEdit

Hoyden's theme was one that looked like a desperado. Her mask was a kerchief with eye-holes that covered her face, allowing for her blond curls to tumble from behind. Her costume were what appeared to be black chain-mail, but designed to look like a jacket and jeans.[2]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Hoyden was a cape with multiple powers. As a striker, anything she hits will explode, while an attacker would also suffer a retaliatory explosion should she be hit. This is in combination with a resistance to damage from other powers, one that becomes better the further the distance from her target.

Hoyden also has basic strength and durability increases, classifying her as a brute. [2]

Was able to take lightning strikes from Behemoth and fight hand-to-hand with Scion.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Hoyden likely triggered as part of a multi-trigger event. [3]

She would eventually join the Wards.

Story StartEdit

Post-EchidnaEdit

Fought during the Behemoth attack on New Delhi, India. Hoyden was able to sustain direct lightning strikes from Behemoth, acting as a lightning rod to protect other capes during the battle.

Post-TimeskipEdit

Hoyden participated in the fight against the Slaughterhouse 9000. The first group she encountered consisted of two Nyx, four Night Hags and three Psychosomas. The group was dispatched when Number Man and Contessa came to the aid of the heroes present.

When an expeditionary force revisited Ellisburg, Hoyden served as suppressing fire for the remaining creations Nilbog had left behind. She was eventually buried in the sludge they left behind and had to be rescued by Defiant.

Gold MorningEdit

As part of Khepri's swarm she fought against Scion hand-to-hand, able to resist the creature's defensive measures. She was, however, frightened the entire time. [4]

Trivia Edit

  4. I could feel the fear of the people I was sending into the fray. Hoyden’s fear was like the scared-little-girl fear I’d experienced while concussed, wracked with pain and helpless at Bakuda’s feet.

    But she could hit Scion, and I needed people who could hit him. I needed every iota of strength I could squeeze out of these capes.
