The panda driving that armored towncar isn’t an illusion – it’s Snowflake, the hyper-evolved mechanic, pilot, and driver for The Protectorate. Having long worked around the fringes of the superhero community, he is not an uncommon sight around town. He is partial to cargo shorts and vintage band shirts–and is not known for his cheerful demeanor.
INSIDER INFO: Developed as part of an experimental program in China designed to prevent the extinction of pandas, Snowflake is thought to be the only one of his kind. His surly attitude is often cited as the reason the experiments stopped. He found his way to the US as part of a circus of crime, but turned the ringleader in to Golden Eagle when the circus hit Cobalt City. He has been attached to the local superhero community in a support capacity ever since. His fondness for firearms and his poor decision-making skills has led to a prohibition on gun ownership of any panda kind. He shares a bunk area with other support staff on the top floor of the Keep.
