Ring of the Chameleons
An artifact that enhanced stealth spells, until it was captured by the Shields of Fiminster, deemed evil and rendered ineffective by one of their enchanters. He kept it as a piece of jewelry, and later gave it to you when he renounced the Shields following the events known as:
Crusaders vs. Heroes
It seemed to be a rather normal day in Paragon City, until you met Kristopher Ash, a mysterious occultist who had taught the young vampire Sayuri Dusk how to survive without doing evil. Sayuri had then become a Paragon Hero, but gone missing while she was pursuing a Villain the night before. You found that the Shields of Fiminster had joined the fight; they considered themselves heroic, but even so, they had targeted and captured Sayuri!
Kristopher Ash told you he had fought the Shields before, and did not dare going against them himself again because he feared they were prepared for a rematch. The Shields of Fiminster were on a crusade against evil, but they were fanatics who considered certain beings such as vampires inherently evil. That Sayuri Dusk was a Hero only made them suspicious of her comrades. Indeed, when you followed them to a minor base you found another Hero, Azure Huntress, apparently working with them. She was accusing Freedom Corps of corruption, but escaped when she noticed your presence. You also found that the Shields had brought in Sayuri/Deborah's human father, who had not met her since her transformation, and told him she had become a monster so he would support her "euthanasia"!
Sayuri was not a true vampire, however, as she had been transformed by a persistent spell, so the Shields had decided to study her a bit and transferred her to her main base in Paragon. They still intended to kill her soon, but you were at last able to catch up with them and free the poor girl in time. In the process, you also arrested a major leader of the Shields and confiscated artifacts you found at the scene.
Ash had learned that the Shields had secretly set up a major base in the Rogue Isles, intending to join forces with the Legacy Chain and liberate the place. However, their clash with the Paragon Heroes interfered with their plans, and Ash feared they might find it feasible to take over them first. As members of Freedom Corps were agreeing with him, you found yourself attacking the Shields alongside Azure Huntress, who claimed she had been framed earlier. You met Titus Fiminster, the founder of the organization, and as he refused to retract his black and white teachings, ended up arresting him. This loss and the controversy that had caused it made the remaining Shields fall into chaos and cease to be a threat.
It turned out that Deborah Day/Sayuri Dusk's horrible experience had come with something good, as a confiscated artifact enabled her to change form at will. Titus Fiminster accused Ash of having orchestrated his downfall, but Azure Huntress believed Evil Huntress had pitted you against each other.
