Detective Kowaccio is a hero contact in the New Overbrook neighborhood of Faultline at coordinates (-145.5, 0, -1467) Detective Kowaccio is a Police Band contact.

He functions as the Safeguard Mission contact as does Detective Frasenbacker.

Kowaccio's name suggests a composite of Ray Vecchio and Ray Kowalski, the two Chicago PD detectives from the Canadian television series Due South who served sequentially as partners to Canadian Constable Benton Fraser. Kowaccio's appearance seems to be based entirely on Ray Vecchio.

+++ Missing Information +++

Level 15-19

You should meet Tom Bowden. He's an NSA agent recently assigned to Paragon City. His first assignment is trying to crack the Clockwork puzzle, but he also has a chip on his shoulder for the Lost. Tom's government connections have him in Steel Canyon these days.

Tom is very focused, and knows what he is doing.

Agent Pavel Garnier from the FBI asked me to send you to him. He thinks you could help him with some of his cases involving the Vahzilok and the Outcasts. Pavel is currently looking into something in Skyway City.

A positive connection with the FBI is a very good thing to have.

Detective Karen Parker has a great reputation as a tough but fair-minded cop. If you're respectful and show her you're competent, I'm sure she'll be happy to work with you on the Tsoo and Council. Detective Parker investigates crimes out of the Skyway City precinct.

Detective Parker can be harsh, but only when it's warranted.

Jim Temblor lost his father when the villain Faultline destroyed the neighborhood of Overbrook, turning it into the wasteland that still bears Faultline's name. Now that the city's started to rebuild, Jim's returned to find some answers, but word is he's found a lot of trouble with The Lost instead.

Jim can be a bit tough to get to know, but deep down he's a good kid.

Information

Detective Kowaccio is loud, brash, and willing to bend the rules to break a case. He's also one of the best cops on the force.

Wrong Detective

Yeah, it looks like there's been some kind of mix-up. You're probably supposed to work with Detective Frasenbacker.

Too Low Level

You ain't got what it takes yet, Character. But thanks for asking. You want to help? Come back when you're around level 15, or talk to another detective in another zone.

Initial Contact

So, I'm Detective Kowaccio, and I'm supposed to make sure you have the police band frequencies. Just check your radio whenever and listen. There's stuff going on all the time out there. And hey, if you do enough stuff, we'll let you know when something big's gonna go down.

Now that you've gotten a Police Radio, you can start scanning Police chatter to hear about the crimes as they're committed in your current zone. You can then act on a report by selecting it from the Police Radio, listed under your Contacts.

Greeting

  • You ready, Character?
  • Yo, Character.

Too Busy

Don't ya think you're overdoin' it some? Get outta here, finish your work, and get back to me when you've got less to do.

No More Missions

Yeah, there ain't nothing happening on any of the investigations.

Missions

Protect Skyway City bank

While listening for the latest signs of trouble, you hear a call asking for heroes to speak with Contact directly. Something big is happening.

Briefing

We've just learned that a villain from the Rogue Isles is going to attack Skyway City, intent on robbing the bank and causing mayhem! To make matters worse, the Lost are somehow connected to this, and have been swarming into the zone. Paragon City needs her heroes to get over to Skyway City and protect the city and the bank from that villain. The robbers have already struck, so you should head over there quick. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions.

Mission Acceptance

We know the Lost are central to what's happening, but we've also learned that the Trolls are going to hit the streets in force to take advantage of the chaos. Your main objective is still to stop the Lost and the villain before they ruin the city and get into the bank, but stopping other villains from causing trouble would also be a great help.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Refusal

What?! I understand, Character. You no doubt have some very important things to do. We'll do our best to stop them, but it doesn't look good.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Go protect Skyway City!

Mission Objective(s)

This isn't going to be easy. The Trolls have alerted the Lost to your presence and are planning to stop you from interfering in the bank robbery. The Lost are roaming around causing mayhem and preparing themselves for the attack on the bank vault.

  • Protect Skyway City bank
    • Stop the Bank Robbery

You saved Skyway City!

Debriefing

Great work, Character! Skyway City is now a safer place thanks to you!

Mission Failure

You did your best, I guess this task was just too much for you.

Protect Steel Canyon bank

While listening for the latest signs of trouble, you hear a call asking for heroes to speak with Contact directly. Something big is happening.

Briefing

This is bad, Character. Arachnos is planning an attack on Steel Canyon. We think their main objective is the bank, but they've brought a villain with them, and they're out to cause as much destruction as possible. If you can help, then please go to Steel Canyon to protect the bank and stop the attack! We got the alarm signal from the bank, so make haste and get over to the bank. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions.

Mission Acceptance

It gets worse. The Family and the Tsoo in Steel Canyon are aware of the heist, and both groups are looking at this as a way to gain ground against the other, and they won't care who gets hurt. The more of them you stop, the better off the city will be.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Refusal

What?! I understand, Character. You no doubt have some very important things to do. We'll do our best to stop them, but it doesn't look good.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Go protect Steel Canyon!

Mission Objective(s)

Steel Canyon is in chaos! Arachnos troops are causing mayhem, members of the Family are standing around key locations acting suspicious, and the Tsoo are taking advantage of the anarchy in the streets.

  • Protect Steel Canyon bank
