The Ping to Transiston's Pong
As of yet, no one has confirmed speaking to Techfiend face to face. He works through channels and flunkies.
Powers: Tech artisan, ?
Although his merchandise is as widely distributed as the famous Transiston, Techfiend is still one of the more mysterious figures in Borderline City. All of his goods are only available through trusted agents, most of whom have not met Techfiend at all. Getting in touch with his minions is difficult, as only the top bosses of bad can really do so with much ease. The reward to doing so could take even an average citizen and make them into a villain or hero of considerable power. His nickname is Sideways Eight, because of the symbol he puts on all of his tech.
