CoV: Preview of Scirocco

IGN has posted a preview of the villain Scirocco from the upcoming title, City of Villains. Martha Stewart, another villain, claimed that Scirocco was merely her apprentice and went on to say:

" I began following Scirocco's trail in Paragon City. There was another man called Scirocco who operated as a hero starting sometime in the 1980's. Before that, information on this hero quickly became sketchy. I was able to piece together a few things. He was originally granted powers by a mysterious order of monks from the Temple of the Four Winds. Very little is known about these monks, but a few things are certain. First, they train gifted individuals in the mystic arts. After accessing early Freedom Phalanx records I was able to determine that the Dark Watcher was one of their trainees. I was not able to locate him for questioning. He has not been heard from since he vanished on one of his dimensional patrols in 1957. The second aspect of the Order of the Four Winds is more difficult to analyze and is the one that affects my current investigation directly. It seems they are responsible for granting "mantles of mystic power" to certain individuals who embody the winds of the world. The Scirocco, as an example, originates in the Sahara Desert as a dry dusty wind but becomes humid as it passes over the Mediterranean. I could not determine what criteria are used to choose these individuals, or why the last Scirocco was a hero and the current one appears to be a villain. Perhaps the dual nature of the wind itself has something to do with it. "
