Licit was an independent hero working with Edict in Stafford, New Hampshire.

Appearance Edit

Licit wears a bodysuit with armor panels and extra pouches. He carries a nightstick and flashbangs.[2]

PersonalityEdit

Licit has a hard time controlling his vices and saying no to sex, drugs, or alcohol.[2] He is however in excellent shape and focused on his career.[3]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Licit could create forcefields in geometric shapes, remaining aware of them to an almost clairvoyant level.[4] He could permit people and objects to pass through his forcefields on a case-by-case basis,[5] though sufficiently powerful hits could shatter the fields.[2]

While he was potent defensively and strategically, his low range and lack of offensive applications hinder him,[5] as his forcefields often appeared in shapes like pyramids, diamonds, cubes, spheres, and cylinders.[2]

The range within which he can create forcefields is listed as either line-of-sight[2] or twenty feet.[5] He is classified as a Shaker.[1]

HistoryEdit

Background Edit

Licit triggered because the big city lacked enough barriers, presumably to the objects of his vices. After his trigger event, he spiraled downwards due to drugs and partying before eventually coming back to reality and, along with his partner Edict, staying within the small-town boundaries of Stafford.[2]

Edict and Licit originally trained with the Protectorate, but issues came up that prevented them from pursuing further Protectorate advancement. As independent heroes, they were only related to the Protectorate in the most tertiary way. They worked well as a team, but Edict had an unrequited love for her partner that made patrols and general cape life hard.[5]

Story StartEdit

Edict and Licit eventually began an on-again, off-again romance.[2]

Post-EchidnaEdit

When the Slaughterhouse Nine visited Stafford, Licit and Edict were unable to stop them from recruiting Damsel of Distress.[1]

Trivia Edit

  • Licit was originally referred to as a striker in-story, but this has been corrected to label him a shaker.[6]

    This creator of obstacles and barriers found the big city lacked enough of them, leading to his trigger event, then a downward slide of drugs and hard partying. He got a reality check and has effectively corralled himself in a smaller territory with teammate and sometime girlfriend Edict. Playtest Capes
  3. *Licit is a little more viable as a hero, making forcefields in basic geometric shapes, suspended in air. Cubes, spheres, cones, etc. He can allow others to pass through these forcefields at will, or make them relatively impenetrable. He's fit, driven, and focused, but his mindset and approach to things make the big city bad for him - he's exceedingly susceptible to bad influences, particularly where partying, sex, drugs, and drama are involved. In a small town, he's distanced from the worst of that, and he remains reasonably happy. He takes on more active duty than Edict, maintaining a stricter police-PRT liason role, going on ride-alongs and ensuring the local police stay up to date. Like Edict, he'll frequently go to other small towns to check in on things if there's a new cape or something, help with out-of-town crises, etc, and the PRT receiving him know to keep tabs on him during leisure hours.Licit is a little more viable as a hero, making forcefields in basic geometric shapes, suspended in air.

    They benefit from a bit more leeway & freedom than some capes in big cities get, while still racking up a good paycheck and the benefits of being PRT. Part of what that pair do, of course, is keep an eye on the local supervillain. Said supervillain was why they were picked to be here, specifically. - Another comment by Wildbow on Reddit
