Adventures in Axum
The team known as Safeguard is nearly as old as Axum itself, and the original team was chosen by the Seven to protect the citizens of Axum during the chaotic years between Axum’s founding and the establishment of its police force. There have been three Safeguard teams; the one previously mentioned, one established in the late 80s, and the new one that you, the players, are a part of.
The first Safeguard was made up of over twenty full-time members, and stayed in action until the late 70s. Originally comprised of thirty members, the roster fluctuated over the years as different situations called for different individuals with different talents. Members include Paragon (the first), Iridescent Lad, Boltbot, Steel, Ultracat, Bomber Girl, The Flame Twins, Professor Accidental Leopard, and Nightfire.
The second Safeguard was established by the government in order to help the APD deal with problems that were difficult or unable to solve by usual means, and was disbanded in the early 2000s. It was smaller than the first, with only ten full-time members, though membership during the Rifts Crisis was said to be somewhere around fourty-eight individuals (many of whom died). Members included Clio, Master Exploder,Eris, Wildfire, Blizzaga, Plastique, Paragon II, and Ultrasoul.
