The Vanguard Security Officer gets no respect.


Recommended Posts

Vanguard Security Officer: "No further without proper clearance. Let's see some ID."

 

Meanwhile, every hero on the way to the RWZ raid just breezes right by him without so much as slowing down. He politely stares and smiles, while keeping his inner rage suppressed.  He's a future supervillain in the making.

 

To quell this future threat before it takes root, I propose we all bring him cookies and show him phone pictures of our cats before heading off to the next raid.

He knows his role there is just performative security, like taking off your shoes at the airport.  Mainly he's just there to intimidate all the civvies from going inside.

i suspect he is a transmogrified Rikti who is trying to undermine Vanguards authority by giving orders no one will folllow.  it is a subtle long term plan.  better than anything else i have seen from Rikti though.

Psst.  He's already a villain.  I converted him a long time ago. :P

 

He does need an update though.  His mothership security briefing still mentions that there are eighteen pylons outside.  Poor guy still doesn't know that there are now twenty.

He also identifies you on sight, negating the need for ID in the first place.  "Hold on, Tootboy, no further without some ID."

Working with stuff in the Navy that I can neither-confirm-nor-deny the existence of, I've said exactly that to shipmates...  "Hey, $GUY_I'VE_KNOWN_FOR_THREE_YEARS, show me your ID".

I mean, he's going his job, I guess.  There's a bit of Security Protocol Theatre going on here, though.  At higher levels, a hero or villain is:

 

1) Easily recognizable.

2) Powerful enough to easily restrain the guard and enter before the guard could even sound an alarm.

3) In many cases, may have mind control and/or illusion powers that can "create" an ID or make the guard think that the hero/villain has a valid ID.

 

Of course, it's a comic book setting, so we can just go with it.  Also, it provides an opportunity to RP humorous exchanges with the guard...

 

Ralph, you do this every day- don't you recognize me by now?

Piss off Ralph, I outrank you.

Ralph Williby, don't you get bossy with me.  I was changing your nappies when your parents were still privates in Longbow!

 

And so on.  😛

How do you know he'll accept cookies? He may be gluten intolerant or on a sugar-free, wheat-free diet.  

 

I suggest pollen-free flowers instead, and maybe a good audiobook on investing on a guard's salary.
