Facet

The origins of the villain group Facet are rooted in an ancient mysticism around the magical properties of crystals over a hundred years ago. Several barons of industry and wealthy landowners, and assorted politicians came together. They created a secret society and based it on the properties of crystals each adopting a name based on a gemstone.

The first iteration of the society was primarily a gentlemen's club that the membership used to gather, discuss politics and wealth and play games of manipulation. Soon their games turned to real power plays as they combined efforts to engineer the election for president. They were stopped by early gaslight hero Dr. Midnight who exposed their manipulations and ended up with the majority of their members in jail or dead.

In the forties Facet was reborn as a front for a Nazi spy ring when the Red Skull created an organized spy ring using the old gemstone codenames. The American Sentinel, and Captain America working together brought down the ring and exposed its membership which included two prominent businessmen, and a US senator as Nazi collaborators.

In the Eighties Facet was reconstituted again this time as an allied arm of the villain organization COBRA when its VIPER parent went underground. This iteration of the organization came the closest to actual success when at least six of its members were actual sorcerers of not inconsiderable skill. Their end came when AEGIS special operations team code named GI Joe took down Cobra, and in the process Facet attempted to bring into existence the avatar of the serpent god Set. Dr Arcane though made an appearance and with the aid of Athena, and the hero Flagg they drove back Set and all of Facets members were consumed by the avatar before it was defeated.

Facet as an actual organization remained defunct until very recently. the young thief who would become known as Gemstone had an encounter with Chelsea Mccann, a thief and grafter who had targeted the same wealthy mark that Gemstone had. After an initial tussle that Gemstone won handily thanks to her mutant powers the two left both empty handed. They would meet later and Chelsea would propose an partnership, her grifting skills combined with Gemstones powers would be an unstoppable combination she explained.

Gemstone would agree and the pair would recruit three others--hardnosed Hitter Liz Harper AKA Diamond, fast footed wheelman Bob Lane aka Sapphire, Computer expert Dave Nguyen aks Opal-- as support. the five person team would take the name Facet primarily after Gemstones powers but also based on the old group Chelsea aka Topaz had read about. Facet would be incredibly successful pulling off multiple robberies including a brilliant high rise robbery of a brand new skyscraper bank on new years eve using the Y2K virus launched by Mechanon as cover to steal nearly half a billion dollars.

The team was ultimately successful but the shadow of greed and ambition would rear their ugly heads as Topaz would bring in twin sisters Melissa and Amber Watson, and Biochemical expert Willow King to the team. Topaz was about to launch a grand scheme to use a potent neurotoxin created by Willow now going by the code name Emerald, as a blackmail tool to extort the US government as a distraction so they could rob the US mint, along with Ex military Zeke Griffin, and Tom bell aka Bloodstone, and Agate as muscle.

Gemstone already not happy with the groups growing size, and with Topazes willingness to use anyone and anything to get her way finally had enough, and left the group after a particularly loud argument that left Agate and Bloodstone and Diamond unconscious and Topaz with a broken arm and ribs. Topaz decided to go through with the plan anyways but the plan fell through when the hero Shock working with Dark Angel in one of several partnerships investigated and uncovered the plot and arrested all of the team save for Topaz who got away at the last moment.

While Gemstone never betrayed the group Topaz was convinced that she had and she wanted revenge badly. It was this desire for revenge that brought her to the attention of a dark figure , Black Anubis.

After listening to her story Anubis seeing an opportunity to gain a superpowered army under his control, told her of the true powers of gemstones and that their was a way, an ancient ritual from Atlantis itself that could transfer the power of gemstones into a person. All they would need is a foci which Topaz volunterred Gemstone herself.

Meeting Gemstone Topaz asked her to let bygones be bygones, and asked her for help with a final score one that she promised would involved no casualties. Inspite of Gemstones reluctance she felt she owed Topaz for oldtimes sake and agreed to help her. Arriving at the appointed time she was surprised to see not only the original Facet crew, but the other five members as well as new members that topaz introduced as Quartz, Garnet, Amethyst, Aquamarine, and Jade.

Sensing shed been played Gemstone made an attempt to escape only to be stunned by Black Anubis who appeared behind her. When she woke up Gemstone was bound and gagged to an altar with a pure uncut version of one of each of fourteen gems attached to her body, and the fourteen men and women surrounding her holding a cut version of each gem. Anbuis began the ritual and began to painfully extract her powers through the gems into the cut foci.

Gemstone though wasn't through and had gained a greater mastery of her powers in the intervening time, along with a better fundamental understaning of the gems mystical poroperties. She broke the ritual and managed to restore her powers which she then used to breakfree of her bonds and knock Anubis through a wall. A running battle ensued between Gemstone and the newly empowerd Facet members.

Though Gemstone had more control, experience and skill, she was drastically outnumbered and though she incapacitated several of them the numbers were beginning to tell. She was about to be overrun when The Masters of Fortune appeared. Psycheout had been following a lead given to him by a mysterious source. He, Tower, Frostbite, and Jaguar engaged the remainder of Facet and together they trounced the villains and rescued Gemstone.

After explaining everything Gemstone agreed to join the masters as ther newest member.

Topaz and Facet recovered quickly though and while she wanted revenge, Anubis put any such ideas on hold as he called in his marker putting them to work gathering the mateirals he needed, and preparing the ritual which would bring his ultimate master back to this world. Though reluctant Anubis assured Topaz he was fully capable of stripping them all of their powers with a thought and their lives with less then one.

Now Facet works for their dark master on his dark agenda. and that agenda has brought them to Bay City where only time remains until they come into conflict with its Protectors.
