Contact Introduced By

New Contact(s)

Do you ever read Dennis Ewell's columns? He's quite a writer, and he told me he'd like your help taking out the Tsoo and the Warriors. Dennis has access to Training Enhancements.



Olivia Chung was born in Taiwan and moved to the United States with her family when she was ten years old. Ever since, she has lived a life carefully balanced between two cultures, embracing American ways while retaining her Chinese roots. An accomplished entrepreneur and author of several books, it was a natural step for her to start publishing a weekly paper aimed at Asian-Americans and immigrants living in Paragon City. Called the Asian Paragon, this paper is a valuable resource to tens of thousands of readers each week. Publishing the paper has put Olivia in touch with all the strata of the immigrant community in Paragon City. She is especially troubled by the growing power of the Vahzilok, and she's always eager to help police and heroes by telling them whatever she hears through her web of contacts.

Initial Contact

I try to help as much as I can, but I am glad you are here. Your strength and skill are needed.


Olivia Chung sells the following items:

  • Inspirations
  • Level 15 Dual-Origin Mutation/Science enhancements
  • Level 20 Dual-Origin Mutation/Science enhancements

Story Arc

Hypodermic needle

A used needle may seem like a strange souvenir to some, but to you it's a reminder of one of your closest brushes with death, in an adventure you've come to think of as:

The Vahzilok Plague

It all started when your contact informed you of a deadly new Vahzilok disease. Eager to help, you went into the streets to collect data on the diseased Vahzilok. But your heroism was not without its price. You learned that you had been infected with the deadly Vahzilok plague.

Your contact sent you to Professor St. John-Smythe for a cure. But when you arrived at the professor's labs, you found them under attack. You defeated the Vahzilok inside and saved the professor's colleagues, along with some of the precious serum they had concocted. Grateful for your help, one of the scientsts used this needle to administer the cure.

Restored to full health, you ventured into the sewers once more, this time on a mission to incinerate the contaminated bodies. You came face to face with Dr. Vahzilok himself, but the mad doctor was not able to prevent you from ridding the world of his plague.


Destroy Vahzilok Containers


The Vahzilok have developed a new strain of their wasting disease. You need to find and destroy the containers the Vahzilok are using to store the disease. A lot of lives are in your hands today. You only have 75 minutes to destroy the plague containers.

Make sure you destroy all the containers.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Destroy plague containers (Timed, 1:15)
  • 3 plague containers

Completion of this mission earns a hero the Plague Stopper Badge.


I can breathe much easier knowing that the threat of the Vahzilok wasting disease has been eliminated.

Recover Tome of Telos


I've learned that an Eidolon called Hunter has stolen the Tome of Telos. She's holed up in the Yellow Rose Cosmetics office, along with a bunch of Vahzilok. There's no tellilng what will happen if they manage to translate that book. I need you to recover the tome from the Vahzilok. You only have 90 minutes to deal with teh Vahzilok.

The Tome of Telos describes a number of powerful ceremonies. I don't want the Vahzilok performing any of them!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat Hunter and her minions (Timed, 1:30)
  • 7 office workers to rescue, recover the tome

Clue: Tome of Telos

This tome is dedicated to the ancient god Telos. It is written in an alphabet that you have never seen before.


I've heard that the eidolons retain working brains and all the memories of their human lives. I guess the memory of being beautiful must have tortured Hunter. So she decided to regain her lost looks by performing one of the rituals described in the Tome of Telos.

It's sad, really. How could anyone trade her life, however short, for a hollow existence as one of Vahzilok's zombies?

Recover Outcast Artifacts


The Outcasts often move minor artifacts to anyone in the city interested in getting an edge. There's a rumor that they're planning a big auction of magical artifacts, but none of my sources have found anything concrete. Normally the Outcasts are big boasters; when they get quiet, I start to worry. I need someone to interrogate some of the Outcasts on the street. See if you can find out what's going on.

The last thing this city needs is more dangerous mystic items in the hands of the wrong people.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Get information from Outcasts
  • Defeat 15 Outcasts

Clue: Auction advertisement

This is an invitation to an auction of mystic artifacts. It designates the time and place for the auction to commence.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat auctioneer and his crew (Timed, 1:30)
  • 4 artifacts to recover

Temporary Powers

Temporary RingofPain.png Ring of Pain Ranged, Foe -Defense, Self Damage over Time
The Ring of Pain is a dark device. It can severely reduce a target's defense at the cost of the owner's health. As the target's defense is lowered, you will continue to lose hit points until you deactivate the ring. The Ring of Pain can remain active for about 10 minutes before it is exhausted of its negative energy.

Temporary ScrollofRuin.png Scroll of Ruin Ranged (Targeted Area of Effect), Foe -Defense
This incantation will drastically reduce the defense of all foes in the affected area. The affected foes become vulnerable and incredibly easy to hit. This scross possesses powerful dark magics, and its effects are almost impossible to resist or avoid. The Scroll of Ruin can only be used once.

Clue: Artifacts

The artifacts you recovered seem to buzz with power, but you cannot deduce their purpose.


I'm glad you were able to stop this auction. The Outcasts have been putting a lot of these magic items out on the streets lately. They always seem to have a downside or a curse on them, but the Outcasts still seem to find ready buyers. I guess there are a lot of people in this city who are desperate for a little power.

Investigate Illnesses


Look, the city council wants to keep this quiet. There's been a rash of mysterious illnesses in the past few days, and a few cases have already proved fatal. We're not sure what this disease is, but it's quite virulent. If something isn't done soon, we'll be living in a ghost town.

We do have good evidence that the illness is connected to the Vahzilok zombies. I need you to take this scanning device and use it on any Vahzilok you see. We need all the data we can get.

Once you've defeated at least 15 of them, we should have enough data.

Clue: Medical scanner

This small medical device was designed by the ingenious Jonathan St. John-Smythe. When placed on a subject's skin, it scans the body for any infections.

Clue: Vahzilok data

This data contains information on the Vahzilok you defeated. It will be cross-referenced with previous scans to determine if these Vahzilok were carriers of the deadly new plague.


Thanks for scanning those Vahzilok. If they were carriers of this strange new disease, this data will be invaluable.

The best minds in Paragon City are working on this data you collected from the diseased Vahzilok.

Take Vahzilok Tissue Samples


We had people all over the city scanning Vahzilok, but you got the best results. Based on your data, we think we've discovered where the diseased zombies are coming from! No surprises here; those walking disease factories have been hanging out in the most unhygienic place they could find: the sewers. I need you to eliminate the diseased Vahzilok and collect some samples of their tissue and blood.

Get back to me as soon as you can, and watch out for a Vahzilok they call the Cutter. He's as nasty as they come.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Eliminate all diseased Vahzilok
  • Find disease sample

Clue: Vahzilok blood sample

These vials of foul-smelling, black blood should help determine the nature of the virulent Vahzilok contagion.


Great work! These samples are the disease in it's pure form. With these, we're sure to find an antidote. I'll get tests run on them immediately.

Get Disease Antidote


I'm sorry to say this, but you've been infected with the Vahzilok virus. Now, I don't want you to panic; it's at a very early stage, and we're already hard at work on a serum. If you could take these diseased blood samples to Professor St. John-Smythe for final processing, I'm sure he could give you a shot right away.

If you start to feel woozy, whatever you do, don't go to sleep!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Deliver samples to the professor

Temporary Power

Temporary VahzilokDiseaseSL3.png Vahzilok Wasting Disease Auto: Self -Regeneration, -Recovery, -Hit Poits, -Endurance
You have been infected with the Vahzilok Wasting Disease. This disease, introduced by the Vahzilok, is slowly wasting you away. Find a cure, quick! Your Max Hit Poits, Endurance, Regeneration, and Recovery have all been reduced.

Debriefing: Jonathan St. John Smythe

Thank goodness you're here! Our labs are under attack by Vahzilok zombies, and we need your help! If that lab falls to the Vahzilok, our hopes for a cure will be ruined!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat Parient Zero and minions
  • 3 scientists to rescue

Clue: Scientist conversation

One of the scientists you rescued said:

'I'm glad you got here when you did. You just missed Dr. Vahzilok himself! He found half of our supply of the serum, and left to examine it. His minions would have found the rest in a few more minutes. Here, let me give you a shot. You'll be all right soon. But I'm afraid that Dr. Vahzilok will just alter his disease to make it resistant to our cure. I guess this proves that his so-called humanitarian motives are nothing but a crock. He can't be trying to cheat death if he's spreading killer viruses around.


So, Dr. Vahzilok's minions made off with some of the serum! If Dr. Vahzilok modifies his virus to resist that drug, we may not be able to step the epidemic!

Stop Vahzilok's Outbreak


Now that Dr. Vahzilok has a sample of the antidote, it's only a matter of time before he can modify his virus and undo our work. However, I've analyzed all the data, and I think I have a very viable candidate for the ground zero of this entire outbreak. I'd like you to go down to the sewers and incinerate every body you find. If you can manage this, you'll put an end to Vahzilok's evil plague forever!

You must be careful. Dr. Vahzilok himself knows about your involvement, and may try to stop you. You'll have to judge for yourself if you'll be strong enough to fight him, or if destroying the bodies is the better answer. Maybe we can put an end to this whole thing here and now, before the rest of the city gets infected.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Put an end to Vahzilok plague
  • 4 bodies remaining


So, you actually came face to face with Dr. Vahzilok himself? Few people have done that and lived to tell the tale. It's interesting that he seemed to have the same goal as you: eradicating the deadly plague he had caused. I guess it's possible that Vahzilok really does care about the harm he causes.
