  • Lore[]

    Margaret Kōhere - the woman who would one day be known as Mad Maggie - grew up in one of the dustiest, dullest corners of Salvo without any family to speak of. She was fortunate, then, to meet a kindred chaotic spirit: an adventurous young boy named Walter Fitzroy. The two were inseparable, and in their teenage years, they became mercenaries. Eventually this duo grew into the Cracked Talon - a powerful mercenary operation. It was here she earned her nom de guerre: Mad Maggie. But when rival warlord Sandringham Kelly signed a treaty with the Syndicate, Maggie’s hopes for an independent Salvo were ruined, and Fuse abandoned her for the Games, leaving Maggie very mad indeed…

    By sabotaging Fuse’s entrance into the Apex games, Maggie planned to expose how weak the Syndicate was, in hopes it would spark rebellion on Salvo. Fuse would assemble a team to take down Maggie… only for the pair to have a heart to heart where they came to accept each other’s choices: Fuse will always follow the fun, and Maggie will always follow the cause.

    It seemed as though Maggie fell to her death after that exchange...But she was apprehended by the Syndicate, and sentenced to fight to the death in the Apex Games. So she will: just not hers.


    Background[]

    Margaret "Mad Maggie" Kōhere was born on Salvo in 2679, growing up in a rough part of the planet. She did not have family growing up, but she did have her closest friend, Walter Fitzroy. One day, while exploring, the two came across a golden hand grenade clutched by the corpse of a deceased freedom fighter. The two claimed the grenade as their own, occasionally passing it back and forth as a symbol of their bond.[4]

    Kōhere was seen as a troublemaker throughout her schooling years, and she and Fuse were often separated during classes.[5] One famous stunt of hers during this time was freeing one class’s birds at the behest of Fuse.[6] She did, however, gain a strong sense of patriotism and nationalism for Salvo at a young age, as shown by an essay written by her in seventh grade,[5] According to her, she's been prepared to die for her planet since the age of 12. [4]

    Good as Gold[]

    Logo of the Cracked Talon

    As the pair grew older, Kōhere and Fitzroy led a variety of escapades together, including robberies, heists, and bomb defusals. However, their goals began to drift apart as they grew older. While Fuse felt the allure of bloodsport and began fighting in Salvo’s famous Bonecage, Kōhere became fully invested in Salvo’s independence movement, founding and leading a warband known as the Cracked Talon.[4] She conducted a variety of anti-Mercenary Syndicate operations, including riots and raids on supply ships, the spoils from which she redistributed to the citizens of Salvo.[7]

    In 2734, Salvo became the seventh planet to join the Syndicate Alliance of Free Worlds.[8] Fuse was soon selected as the first representative from Salvo to compete in the Apex Games. Kōhere was infuriated by this, wanting nothing to do with the Syndicate, for herself or Salvo. The two friends got into a fight as a result, with Kōhere pulling the pin on their grenade and using it to blow off Fuse’s right arm.[4]

    Season 8 Launch Trailer[]

    Fuse's introduction to the Apex Games occurred during the Salvo-Syndicate Merger Ceremony, riding into Kings Canyon on a refurbished IMS Thermopylae.[9] Kōhere, however, planned to sabotage Fuse’s entrance into the Apex games to expose how weak the Syndicate was, in hopes it would spark rebellion on Salvo. She quickly hacked into the Thermopylae’s systems, demanding the delivery of Fuse’s other arm. She then hijacked the ship’s artillery cannons and attacked the spectators, causing Fuse to destroy them with a well-placed grenade. Kōhere finally detonated a vast array of explosives she had planted across the island, devastating the area and wrecking the Thermopylae with the debris.[10]

    Armageddon[]

    Fuse, Bloodhound, and Lifeline confronted Kōhere in an attempt to stop her attacks.[11] However, she quickly captured the three Legends, seeking to convince Fuse to return to the side of Salvo. He refused,[12] and as a result, she took control of the Apex Games, modifying the ring to behave erratically.[13]

    After a few weeks of torment, Fuse decided to pursue Kōhere to stop her chaos. She soon shot his ship down,[14] causing it to disastrously land in a park.[15] Kōhere and Fuse attacked each other with explosives, with both being blown off a ledge by the blast.[16] Fuse, wishing to help her up, offered her his arm, but Kōhere refused, letting go and falling[17] to what Fuse assumed was her death.[6] However, she survived, and was later found inciting riots and resistance on the Fringe World of Págos.[18]

    Kōhere fled in a custom Goblin fighter, and was later shot down during a dogfight in the skies of Gaea. She was phased away after her aircraft was struck, and was later apprehended on Olympus. Wreckage from the fight landed on Olympus [19] and Storm Point. [20]

    After her arrest, the Mercenary Syndicate claimed to have "creative punishments" planned for her.[21] Believing her execution to be imminent, Kōhere used her last request to write a letter to Fuse, musing on the different definitions people have for freedom. [22]

    Judgment[]

    Kōhere was tried by the Syndicate for 27 counts of sedition, including 18 counts of inciting riots and 9 counts of attacking Syndicate supply ships, as well as for her attack on Kings Canyon. A defiant Kōhere, insistent that it was all justified in the name of freedom, bit the bars in front of her and spat a dislodged tooth at the presiding Magistrate, impaling and blinding his right eye. She was then taken to be executed by firing squad. However, before the strike team could pull their triggers, Kōhere was saved by the intervention of Eduardo Silva. As an alternative punishment, the Magistrate dictated that Kōhere become a competitor in the Apex Games, where her fellow competitors would become her executioners. She was indefinitely detained afterwards, sending a letter to the Salvonian zine Backs\ash to encourage her followers to keep fighting.[23]

    Season 12 Launch Trailer[]

    During her first match of the Apex Games, a bound Kōhere was launched from a dropship in handcuffs, but not before mercilessly tearing out the throat of a Syndicate soldier with her teeth. Kōhere evaded several squads before dropping through a hatch on Olympus to find Silva working at a console below, declaring his plan to establish her as a "villain" in his quest for control of the Syndicate. Grabbing his green spectacles, she was sent back to the surface, after which Silva activated a protocol to teleport the arena over a metropolitan area on the surface of Psamathe using the newly installed Phase Driver. After another chase she met with Octane and Lifeline, whom she was paired with for the match. The two Legends begrudgingly allied themselves with the warlord, with Octane giving her an EVA-8 shotgun. [24]

    After the match's conclusion, Silva immediately hosted a broadcast to blame Kōhere for the sudden relocation of Olympus. Kōhere presented Silva's glasses to prove her innocence. The three agreed to work together in an attempt to take down Silva. Kōhere additionally tells Lifeline to find her "when [she's] ready to unleash." [25]

    The Perfect Son[]

    During an Apex Games match on Storm Point, Kōhere was placed on a team with Lifeline and Fuse. She and Fuse focused their fire on a swarm of Carthage spiders while a distraught Lifeline lamented about Octane's impulsiveness. The two offered their own advice - Kōhere stated that the only person Lifeline can depend on is herself, and Fuse stated that it's good to rely on one's friends, but they should always be given space. The two began to bitterly fight over their responses, with Kōhere branding him a traitor and Fuse defending his departure from Salvo, stating that "it takes strength to walk away from everything ya know." During their argument, Lifeline had to single-handedly fend off a second swarm of spiders, with the two only joining after personally being attacked. [26]

    After Eduardo Silva was elected as the leader of the Syndicate council, Kōhere was approached by Lifeline. Satisified that her advice was taken, she asked Lifeline of her plan, to which she responded that she intends to "burn [the Outlands] down."[27]
