Punks of Newerth[edit | edit source]

The Punks of Newerth are here to leave their mark on the battlefield! With enough swagger and attitude to cover the entire map, they're primed to show the authorities that the future and every structure and surface in Newerth belongs to the Punks. Join this baller crew and help create a masterpiece during the Graffiti Event!
Punk Smith comes from the old school of Punk rebellion, when you couldn't even walk on the same sidewalk as the gang unless you'd tagged the armor of a Captain of the Guard -- while it was being worn. If the Guard happened to catch you, or you came across a rival gang while you were trying to pass initiation, well...that's why you made sure your spray painter doubled as a warhammer. Punk Smith tries to teach the new blood how to do things the right way, stay relatively safe and out of shackles, and crush and mix their own custom paint colors, but they're all rebels -- they don't listen to a damn thing he says, and he wouldn't want it any other way.
The Punk Hammer loves spreading art across Newerth as much as any other Punk, but his greatest pleasure is removing tryhard toy graffiti from existence so no one else has to suffer the unbearable pain of looking at it. When he encounters these incredible wastes of paint (basically any graffiti created by someone other than a Punk) he doesn't settle for a mere slash or dis across the offending piece -- that would be too kind, and someone might still be able to see the original piece (of garbage). Instead, he uses his bass hammer to reduce the entire structure to rubble, then smashes the pieces into dust and powder. Then he finds the so-called "artist" and does the same thing to them.
While Punks like Ravenor, Valk and Pyro love to get the whole gang together and blast the city with paint and parties, Punk Nomad is a bit of a loner, preferring to wander the streets on his own, letting the architecture guide him to the perfect stone and steel canvas for his inspired masterpieces. This also lets him stalk the rival gangs drawn to the Punks' revelry and pick them off one by one, leaving a series of brightly painted and barely living art displays in his wake.
Punk Pyro has no time for mere tags, slashes, or even wildstyles -- she's all about painting burners: large, elaborate pieces that are so intense they seem to radiate right off the surface. To bust one of these massive masterpieces out before she's caught or confronted by a rival gang, she needs to work insanely fast and be ready to blast trespassers away at the first sign of trouble. This is not a problem -- her paint pump is capable of covering a wall in mere seconds and drowning chumps even faster, and she has a very sticky trigger finger.
There's nothing like a graffiti rave to get the Punks ready for a mission of tagging and slashing, and Punk Ravenor gets the party started right by carving up the floor with her Rollerblade moves and baller wildstyle artistry. She doesn't suffer amateurs, boring parties, or lazy sticker slap tags, and if she comes across another crew trying to disrespect the Punks' graffiti, she's more than ready to overwhelm them with a shocking display of power, paint, and pink and purple pain!
Punk Swifty brings the flair of a pure artist to every aspect of his life his painting, music, dancing, weaponry, and especially his street fights. It's often hard for the other Punks to tell if Swifty is painting a masterpiece, choreographing a new vocal and step routine, or hacking and slashing a rival gang. This can be embarrassing, as they sometimes end up punching a backup dancer in the face or trying to sing along with a victim's cries of agony, but you can guarantee Punk Swifty will turn whatever chaos he's created into another pice de rsistance of bright paint, epic beats, and splattered blood.
Punk Valk views her spray paint art through a different prism than the other Punks. For her, the outrageous wildstyle designs she creates are inspired by a heavenly power, a god-tier muse who has chosen her as the conduit for its angelic artworks. Fortunately, this being has also chosen her to party hard, constantly live on the bleeding edge, and drag the rest of the Punks along for the daring and divine ride. If anyone ever convinces her how insane it all is...she'll probably laugh.
