Project Update: Hero Update — K.N.Y.F.E.

Good morning, Sentinels!

It’s time for an update about the last of the heroes for this set that were revealed from the beginning (by being on the banner at the top of the page). You knew this was coming, but I think you’ll still be delighted to see what all this Paige is up to!


Paige Huntly is K.N.Y.F.E., the Kinetic Neutralizer Yielding Flawless Execution. As ostentatious as her codename is, it was not at all a stretch by her superiors at F.I.L.T.E.R., as it was a later addition to her already impressive resume.

After only half a decade in the Scottish Marines, she was recruited personally by Warden Hoefle to head up The Block's Special Operations team. Her track record there was as impeccable as the rest of her official — and unofficial — records. However, spending over a decade around the The Block’s occupants and its temporal containment systems irrevocably altered her physiology, which took more of a toll on Huntly than it did on most. She spent weeks in the neo-superhuman development wing of the infirmary as energy spikes erupted all over her body. Her recovery time was impressive, yet the power fluctuations managed to deal millions of dollars of damage to the surrounding sick bay, medical equipment, and a few unfortunate members of the medical staff.

The fortnight out of commission only steeled Huntly for more action. She re-entered the field, now armed with not only her highly customized F.I.L.T.E.R. power-suit which augmented her not-inconsiderable strength, but also an array of close-range energy projection powers. Eager for a challenge, the agent now known as K.N.Y.F.E. began taking assignments in more and more dangerous environs. However, the more assignments she successfully completed, the more she noticed a trend towards certain timelines and realities. An event was on the temporal horizon, and one specific reality seemed to be the crux of that event.

When she brought her concerns to her superiors at F.I.L.T.E.R., she was admonished for considering interference. “We don’t mess with timelines ending or beginning: that’s too much trouble,” she was told. This was far from satisfactory, however. Paige Huntly had never been one to sit on the sidelines, and now, she was stronger than ever. Abandoning her post at F.I.L.T.E.R., she began her search for the temporal crossroads which drew the lines of the Multiverse closer with each cosmic event.

K.N.Y.F.E. is a rough, crass, and loud character with an exuberance about violence that borders on criminally concerning. She’s a lot of fun! She’s also incredibly dangerous. We talk about these things on The Letters Page podcast!

K.N.Y.F.E. is here, and she’s looking for a fight!

(Design not final)

Remember how her name is an acronym that stands for Kinetic Neutralizer Yielding Flawless Executions? Seems like Neutralizing and Executing are pretty important to her…

(Design not final)

Ah, sure enough! Those two cards give a good feel for what this deck is focused on: taking out targets. And she has a lot of methods of doing so, and benefits as well!

(Design not final)

Her deck is fairly straight-forward, but with interesting combo opportunities. Plus, the art on her cards shows her progression from marine to F.I.L.T.E.R. agent to rogue agent to fae brawler to headhunter… K.N.Y.F.E.’s been through a lot, and she’s having a blast!

(Design not final)

Many variants in this set are from other realities and universes… but K.N.Y.F.E. is already from another reality! She’s not the Paige Huntly of this universe, but there are quite a few different takes on K.N.Y.F.E. out there, so you’ll still get to see a wide variety of her tales across her many variants.


More questions! Now, with answers!

Q: Question about the rule book release. Will it be released at the end of the campaign? Or later when it is completed?

A: When it’s completed, which will be after the end of the campaign, but not, say, several months afterwards. In the not-too-distant future!

Q: May we please have a vague hint about the next expansion?

A: No, sadly, I cannot provide vague hints at this time. I can only do overt reveals, such as the fact that an environment in the next expansion is “The Court of Blood”. But no vague hints. Sorry to disappoint!

Thanks for reading, everyone! Another new villain tomorrow, and then lots of stuff next week as we wrap up this incredibly successful campaign! 

Keep on saving the Multiverse!
