Spur was a member of the Las Vegas Protectorate until he abandoned it along with the rest of his team.


Spur is described as in his mid-twenties, and not bad-looking. He has bleached white hair and wears a costume themed around barbed wire, with real barbed wire mixed with tattoos. He wears acid-bleached jeans and a simple black mask, covering the upper part of his head, with the image of a circle of barbed wire on his forehead.[1]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Spur is pre-cog who functions most effectively in the midst of chaos and heightened emotions. He doesn't appear to be a powerful pre-cog, but is competent even without his powers boosted. His association with Blowout is probably intentional, as both their powers react to heightened emotions. He could possibly have power assisted memories, as he is able to remember all of Canary's songs as well as the lyrics, when even she had trouble with it. Or he could possibly just be a big fan.[1]



Trigger conditions unknown.


First seen when Pretender was being taken into custody.[2][3][4][5][6]

Gold Morning Edit

He was last seen being moved into Protectorate custody with Nix, though it is probable he was pulled into Gold Morning. He failed to negotiate a release from custudy despite knowing what happened to Revel and others.[7]


  1. 1.0 1.1 “I remember you,” Spur said. He smiled. Teeth that had been professionally done, no doubt. He wasn’t bad looking, but not quite my type. Spiky hair, and a costume that mingled barbed wire tattoos with real barbed wire, where his skin was exposed. Mid twenties, with hair bleached to a near-white and acid washed jeans. His mask was simple, black, covering the upper half of his face, with only a circle of barbed wire at the brow. A trademark of thinker powers, to do the whole forehead thing. A precog who was most effective in the midst of chaos and heightened emotions, and fairly competent otherwise. “Bad Canary?” - Excerpt from Venom 29.3
  2. Nix, Blowout, Leonid and Floret joined Satyrical in their anger. Heroes in more flamboyant and colorful costumes than normal, their moods a contrast in how dark they were. Spur and Ravine seemed more lost than angry, but the way they retreated into their group as we passed told me that they would side with their team over us. - Excerpt from Drone 23.2
  3. “You were famous,” he said. “The whole trial thing. You-“

    Canary’s expression fell.

    “-got robbed,” he said.

    “Dick,” Floret said. “Like that’s how she wants to be remembered.”

    “I remember the music too,” he protested.

    “Yeah,” Canary said. She rubbed the back of her neck, avoiding eye contact. “It doesn’t matter anyways, does it? Long time ago, and we’ve got better things to worry about.”

    “Vulgarishous,” he said. “Ur-sound? Lineless?”

    “You’re probably cheating,” she said.

    “I could sing the lyrics,” he answered.

    “It would make me sure you’re cheating. I barely remember the lyrics.”

    “I don’t believe that for a second,” Spur answered her. “Eh, guys? Back me up. My power doesn’t give me a way to cheat, does it?”

    “No,” Floret said. “He’s genuine. And none of us have ways to clue him in.” - Excerpt from Venom 29.3
  4. “Spur?” I said, “Raise your right hand?”

    He did. There were bugs on the fingers.

    “He was moving his hand. A one-handed sign language. I assume everyone on your team knows it.”

    “I was thinking of Canary’s music,” Spur told me. He stepped forward, putting a hand on Canary’s shoulder as he did so. She turned, so they were both facing me. “Piano keys. Mnemonic tool. That is something our team uses.” - Excerpt from Venom 29.3
  5. “And how did he know the passwords?” Golem asked.

    “He guessed the cake thing through cold reading. White with blue, like Weaver’s costume. Made sense. That Taylor didn’t eat much… well, look at her. The rest… torture? Coercion through other means?”

    “Torture?” I asked.

    Spur raised his chin a bit, but didn’t do or say anything to suggest otherwise. - Excerpt from Venom 29.3
  6. I drew my knife. The one that wasn’t special.

    “Woah,” Golem said. He put his hand on my wrist. “Woah, woah, woah.”

    “She’s bluffing,” Spur said, unfazed. “She’s scary, she’s got a reputation, but she’s bluffing here. There’s no way she follows through.”

    “I think you’re badly underestimating how pissed off I am,” I said. I was surprised at just how right I was. The mounting anger caught me off guard. “Doing this, screwing around, stabbing people in the back, screwing with the system when we’re trying to save humanity?”

    “We’re saving it too,” Spur said. “Satyr, the others, they’ve got this situation handled. Give them… two or three more hours, and the threats are going to be dealt with, Cauldron will be secure, or as secure as they can be, after you account for injuries and deaths at the hands of the invading group. You go in there, you’re just going to muck up a delicate exfiltration operation.” - Excerpt from Venom 29.3
  7. “Fantastic,” Spur answered.

    “Tell us where the heroes are. No nonsense,” I said. “Fake wall, fake rock, wherever. Talk.”

    “Let’s hear what you’re offering in exchange,” Nix said.

    “No,” I responded. I used my bugs to open the Dragonfly’s ramp.

    “You don’t know that they’re safe,” Spur said. He smiled a little.

    “If you want to know what happened to Satyr, explain,” I said. “Waste any time, and we leave and send the PRT here to investigate. You won’t get any answers.”

    “Hard sell?” Spur asked. “Satyr can handle himself.”

    “Apparently not,” Imp said. Someone elbowed her. - Excerpt from Venom 29.9
