Paragon has been shocked this week by the arrest and investigation into the recent actions of Kelly Silver, more commonly known as the teenage hero, Scarlet Starlet.
Miss Silver apparently handed herself in to the authorities following an incident in which she allegedly attacked a small number of other well-known heroes.. some of which required serious medical attention.
the Scarlet Starlet has been a common figure in the media for her actions in the defense of the city despite her association with the infamous vigilantes of the Fletched Alliance, but it seems this is one G.I.F.T. figurehead that it likely to have outlived its usefulness.
While police investigate matters, no charges have yet been brought against the young hero, and her victims similarly as yet have not pressed charges either.
Either way, what next for this fallen starlet? Reports suggest that government sponsorship policies for this and perhaps other young heroes is in jepordy. With this incident following on from the recent murders of members of the so called 'Youth Alliance', coincidentally also associated with the FA, that our government is forcing these youngsters into role for which they are ill-suited and ill-prepared.
Whatever happens, it is likely that the young Kelly Silver's life will never quite be the same again.
(( I REALLY hope the reporter that wrote that story has REALLY good medical coverage.
Aside from the FA not being vigilantes (Only unregistered member I know of is Jane) and the connection without foundation about the ties between the FA and the YA, Ves just doesn't like the press. And he knows people who know other people who know how to make people regret saying things like that in a vast range of slow and painful ways.
I love logging on and finding a reason to smile ))
