|Archetype||Freeform - Gadgeteering
I created this character during the Beta, and recreated him when the game went live. Engineer is my homage to The Engineer in TF2 - a fact made even more evident by this character's biography:
Kenneth has always been a team player, and there was a time when he was content to stick to a supporting role. That all changed when the Invasion struck, and his bat-wielding best friend died in his arms.
Picking up what he could, Kenneth pulled the light down on his hardhat, and exchange his trusty wrench for his newly constructed Sonic Blaster, and decided to take matters into his own hands.
Everyone still calls him 'Engineer,' just like in his old team days. And that's just fine by him.
I have a lot of fun with this character. I use two of the pets from Gadgeteering, the Munitions Bots and the Support Drones. I threw a few powers from the Power Armor set, only where it made sense, to add a little flavor. I can stay alive for a long time with this set up, so long as I'm not taking too much heavy focus fire, heh.
==[ UPDATE ]====
Massive changes to the game a while back caused all my old characters to have all their stats and powers reset. I basically had to rebuild Engineer from the ground up 🙁 Here are screenshots of his stats, specs, and powers as of right now (9/26/2012):

Scopes is my Duel Wielding Corruptor (sic). Yes, I said Corruptor. Though Scopes fights for the Resistance in Pretoria, I chose to use the Villain archetype, Corruptor. That's one of the fantastic things about the Going Rogue expansion: You're able to play along the lines of Morality, creating deeper, more complex, character development than before. A traditionally "evil" archetype, seeing the corruption (heh) of Emperor Cole, can come to the aid of the populous - Having a deeper concern for the general well-being of the population than for his own petty criminal activities, is one of the things you were not able to do in the old Black and White, Good and Evil system of City of Heroes/Villains. With Going Rogue, however, you can... and are encouraged to.
