Drake is the older brother of Gecko (see page 2) and has sought out Dragonfly and Salamander, telling them that he intends to carry on his brothers heroic legacy. Dragonfly and Salamander turn him down at first, not wanting to repeat the tragic fate of Gecko, but Drake is just as persistent as his brother was and proves to them that he’s capable.
What the heroes don’t realize is that Drake blames them for his brothers death and has secretly been receiving training from the deadly Widow, an old friend and foe of Dragonfly. The Widow wants revenge for Dragonfly’s past manipulations and saw an opportunity in Drake to mess with the hero. But even she isn’t fully aware of Drake’s plans.
Drake plans on taking them down from the inside. He plans to earn their trust and then burn their world to ashes.
