From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Granite is a NPC character found in AE missions on the Virtue server. He is used as a henchman and background stories. A rank and file villain, he is free to be used in other AE missions, info given below on his stats, and his history expanded.
Very little is know about the past of Granite. He made one or two minor heists before she hooked up with The Union of Dire Ambition. Unlike many of the low ranking villains that join The Union, she is a very capable fighter, very skilled in his powers.
His first major job from the Union appears to be an assignment to Entropy Legion to assist the plot of The Traveler. Granite was part of a security patrol in The Traveler's HQ with a squad of Union minions. He and his troops engaged Hyperion Force when they investigated The Traveler's plot. Hyperion Force was able to subdue Granite and his troopers.
He was in the Zig, waiting for trial, when he got transfered to a research facility of Crey. There, along with Short Circuit, he was being studied by Crey scientists. He and Short Circuit were freed by the Entropy Legion. He is currently at large.
Granite possesses a smooth, rock-like hide as a result of unknown means. The mutagenic process caused his musculature, bone structure, internal organ composition, soft tissue structure, and skin to greatly increase in toughness and density. Granite's primary superhuman power is his great physical strength. Granite also possesses immense physical endurance. At his peak, he can exert himself for about 24 hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to affect him.
The rock-like composition of the Granite's body renders him highly resistant to physical injury. Granite's body can resist extremely powerful impact forces, such as the force of the Statesman's punches. He can also withstand exposure to high levels of explosives, such as being struck full with bazooka shells, without sustaining injury. His body can also withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -75 degrees to 800 degrees Fahrenheit for up to one hour before exposure or heat prostration occurs.
Granite is my Virtue version of The Thing
You can add Granite for your own AE missions by copy and pasting the information found in the Critter Info Box into a plain text file from either WordPad (for PCs) or TextEdit (for Mac). Name the file and change the extension to .critter. Critter files are nothing more than plain text files with .critter as its file extension, so you can also edit other critter files this way too.
Next, add the file to your Custom Critter folder in the CoH section of your hard drive. For PCs the folder is typically c drive > Program Files > coh > Custom Critter. For a Mac, you right click on the CoH program, typically found in the Applications folder, and chose Show Package Contents. You then navigate Contents > Resources > transgaming > c_drive > coh > Custom_Critter
