HERO PROFILE #21: The Eye
Tagline: "The Eye sees all."
Operates out of: Mountain View, California
Activities: The Eye is a Block Captain of his neighborhood block watch program, and observes and reports
Gear: The Eye has a collection of homemade gadgets created to disorientate a criminals senses with light and sound. Examples: "The Dragon's Eye" is a ring with a powerful light built into it "that may be used to 'night blind' a potential attacker." The "Sonic Screamer Tube" not only calls attention but repels attackers with it's loudness.
Martial Arts: The Eye has developed some of his own techniques including a forms he calls "Jade Mantis" and "Leaf Hand."
Quote: "In one form or another, I've always been 'The Eye,' having had various personae that have served me in the quest to fight crime in the real world. I first started to search for others doing this in the early days of the internet (sometime in the '90's), and found Captain Jackson, with whom I developed a good friendship around common values and methodology."
Author's notes: The Eye has recently self published a book titled So You Want To Be a Crimefighter? (you can buy it HERE and here is a link to his MySpace)I'm looking forward to buying a copy and reviewing it here at a future date.
