==Arcade Edit==


"Rift Energy. It's what makes the whole galaxy go around. Makes some people lots of money. Makes other people... different. Get too close to it, and it'll change you. Took my brother, Logan. Turned him into the Outlaw and then... into something worse. Almost took me, too. But I got it under control, mostly. I can use it, try not to let it use me. Some days are better than others. Now I hear talk of something stronger. Just rumors, maybe a myth. But what if it isn't? If it's as powerful as they say it is.... Well, let's just say I've got a lot of work to do."
—Words by Emmett Graves


Name: Kat & Dusty [2]

Reason: Emmett walks across the rival stage with his Kinetic Rifle wondering if there is anyone around and demanding them to show themselves. Kat then descends from the wall of the stage, which leads Emmett to ask how she can do that. Kat states that she has no memory of how she got her powers. Emmett then states that she is dangerous in which she replies that she is only trying to help people. Emmett takes this as her wanting more power, in which Kat states she never wanted this power in the first place, and is going to use it to stop monsters like him, Emmett then threatens her that "she better try to keep her feet on the ground, and he'll try not to drop a building on her." They begin the battle.

Connection: Both Kat and Emmett Graves fight extraterrestrial lifeforms, but in different ways. Kat flies herself by altering her gravity field while Emmett uses his jet. They also both debuted in 2012 and have yet to appear in more than one game. The two also somehow use power from the enemy: Kat uses Dusty's gravitational powers, which is derived from the Nevi, and Emmett is infected by Rift Energy, which creates the enemies of the Starhawk. Both have been touched by cosmic forces, but whereas Kat's is beneficial, Graves has to suppress his lest he turn into an Outsider. Said cosmic forces power their games' main enemies. Also, they were the only two DLC characters at the time.

Emmett: Alright. Whoever you are... Show yourself.

(Kat descends from the walls.)

Emmett: Mind telling me how you did that?

Kat: I wish I knew! I... I don't remember...

Emmett: People like you, who don't know what you're doing... you're dangerous.

Kat: Dangerous! I'm trying to help people!

Emmett: 'Just trying to help.' Yeah, I hear that a lot, too. Power feels good though, right? Soon, that's all you're gonna want... more power.

Kat: I never wanted this power in the first place! But since I've got it, I'm going to use this to save people from monsters... like you?

Emmett: Knew it would come to this. You keep your feet on the ground, girlie, and I'll try not to drop a building on you.


"Stories turned out to be true. The energy those people were looking for... it's like nothing I've seen before. Most of 'em couldn't handle it. I guess Cutter's regulator helped me. Or maybe I just got lucky. Either way, it's in me now, too. I can feel it mixing with the Rift energy, just itching to get out. Sooner or later I'm gonna let it out. And God help anyone in my way when I do."
