This newest group of trainees was… nothing like the past two sets of teams Agent Alvarez has trained into the Hero Service.

The biggest difference was their original testing scores. He’d originally been placed with mid-tier teams, most of whom would not be plastered on the front pages of newspapers nationwide very often. Honestly, he’d thought it a mistake when he opened his files for the first time and saw the scores. These were the next top heroes, the ones that kids across the country would hang posters of. Agent Alvarez knew better than anyone the importance of those in the Hero Service who had more mundane roles, but he also felt the sparks of excitement having a top tier team geared towards field work.

With the excitement came a new anxiety, especially as he prepared for their first time out on patrols. There would be more field missions, meaning more risk of running into any criminals and more risk of his trainees getting hurt. He was thankful that a healer had been put on the team, but Jordan is a trainee just as much as the rest of them and he had no way of knowing how any of their missions would go.

Echo had originally warned him of increased criminal activity but now assured him that Portland had been quiet the last few days, making it a perfect time for them to go out. He wouldn’t have time today to reprimand the late comers, though almost all the team was there before the mandated 5:30 arrival. Their morning banter was a common occurrence, especially now that more of them were adjusting to the early start time.

”You’ve all been approved to start field work, so I have two heroes on the Portland patrol team that will be training you today on the proper conduct around civilians,” Agent Alvarez’s voice booms out to his team of powerful young adults, demanding their attention at the start of his speech.This time they could not afford to play around and joke with each other with the odds of a criminal coming into play still an unknown. You will be split up into two teams and work with your assigned hero.”

Agent Alvarez steps from the front of the control room and roots himself in the middle of his team, Team Echo, following professional servicewoman Echo in East Portland, will consist of Prodigy, Apollo, Avalanche, Blink, Undine, Proteus, and Wild Thing.

“Team Warrior, following professions serviceman West Portland Warrior in West Portland, will be Quantum, Artemis, Cyborg, Copycat, Oryx, Antigen, and Trigger. Remember, treat these heroes how you would treat me, they are your commander on the field today. I will be in the control room watching as much as I can.”

Following the announcement, the teams were sent on two different routes to the patrol meeting point for East and West. The teams were strategically chosen by Agent Alvarez as well as the two heroes that would be joining them. Ideally, this would be a simple first field mission where the team could get used to being seen by civilians and understand the importance of the patrol team. Echo had already prepared her patrol team to be aware of the new trainees coming to the field, as did the West Portland Warrior. They each met their designated team at the patrol center, in their professional uniforms ready to mentor the budding heroes.

Both teams were given a similar speech: ”Today you will be patrolling with the Portland Patrol Teams for the duration of the Day Shift. There are four quadrants based on the cardinal directions. Your duties will include monitoring the streets of your designated area, checking on any disturbances, and making your presence known so that the civilians in the area can feel safe. Do not interact with any criminals unless authorization has been given by your patrol mentor.”
