Orion Hunter is a character in the now-defunct City of Heroes MMO.

He is a member of the premiere European superhero group Dawn Patrol.

He is also the father of Persia Theron, otherwise known as Artema.

Character History

Argo Theron is the latest in a long line of champions descended from the legends of the Greek Pantheon. Given the power from Zeus himself, Argo took the name "Orion Hunter" and agreed to represent Greece in Europe's premiere superhero team.

During the first Rikti Invasion, Orion Hunter was badly wounded defending his country from the extra-dimensional threat, so he was not able to participate in the Alpha-Omega Gambit. But he was able to help Europe recover from the devastation.

Facing Down Leona Powers

(See also "Galatea Dawning")

Orion Hunter was one of several Dawn Patrol heroes recruited by Lyon Powers to combat the threat posed by the unstable Leona Powers. While he was clearly overpowered by her, he continued to press the attack at every opportunity along with his teammates. He understood that their real reason for confronting her was to keep her busy until Galatea Powers could be well enough to join the battle and stop her.

Powers and Abilities

His primary ability is his Olympian Blade, an energy broadsword comprised of Zeus lightning.

His secondary ability is Olympic Stamina, given the strength and endurance of the gods, he can fight for long periods of time. However, this is not the same as invulnerability, and he can be overpowered by a strong enough force.
