List of the Dead:

Although we have had numerous new characters, both PCs and NPCs, appear in X-Project over the years, there have also been characters who have passed on. Become no more. Have ceased to be. Expired and gone to meet their maker. These are late characters, stiffs, bereft of life, they rest in peace. Rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible, they are truly ex-characters.

In the last two years, the 'toll' was as follows:


2009

12 Taygetos trainees - killed by the program leader (Walking Ghosts)

Weapon X - George Thompson/Mastodon, John Wraith/Kestrel, Carol Danvers/Warbird (presumed deceased) - killed by David North and X-Force (Shiva)

William Moses - killed by Irene Merryweather (Heretics)

Jada Parrish - killed in the bombing of the SCCS (3 2 1 Contact)

SIROCCO - entire team of four assassins killed by the Imperial Guard protecting Lilandra Neramani (Congress of Behram)

Some are mourned. Others are not. Sometimes death is even permanent. Sometimes, however, it is not, with a number of plots using the "presumed dead" theme. The most famous 'resurrection' of all is, of course, Jean Grey, however there has been a Zombie Night, with all those who have 'returned' from the 'dead' welcome.
