The Gundogs are a group of elementally powered individuals. Five men and five women comprise the pack-mates derived of underground laboratories across the world in only the most powerful and sophisticated nations.
The Gundogs rule the streets of New York from their towering headquarters named in honor of their benefactor, Cerberus, the man whose efforts eventually enabled the Gundogs to be accepted by society and even later employed by the U.S. government. However, their publicity was a double-edged sword that caught the attention of the new Machine Movement. The original purpose of the process by which the Gundogs were created was to advance evolution by annihilating the modern world using an army of soldiers with chemically enhanced DNA. Each of the Gundogs has a powerful signature attack thanks to training with Riene and also in part due to the enthusiasm of Karmine and Ashley. These powerful attacks are meant to be used only in dire situations since they push the Gundogs to their extreme limits and could possibly kill them.
After their respective escapes from the labs that created them, each of the Gundogs had to make their way in the real world before they found each other. They are not suited to normal lives, but on one special occasion, the group was treated to a fantasy in which their friends and enemies were merely high-school kids without powers. As they endured the first day, which seemed longer than a normal day, some members of the team began wishing to stay. However, though Ashley found he had a peculiar knack for the tennis scene, Riene surmised that prolonged exposure to their current environment would result in a complete reversal of their aging process. In fact, by the next day, they could expect to be not much older than ten years of age. Convincing Carney to abandon this place with the others became more difficult when she was offered the opportunity to feature her beautiful voice in a school musical.
On more than one occasion, Riene, the most studious of the group and the only one to have mastered his powers before leaving his lab, would subject the Gundogs to a series of tests in which they were to demonstrate a certain level of control over their powers. During one such event, the group was made to core and peel an apple, slice it and keep its shape and safely deliver it into Riene's hand. Before the trial was finished, Ashley blasted the apple into sauce with a fireball.
A canine unit developed by AutE known as a Gundog sacrificed itself while protecting the team during an attempted rescue. A cybernetically-enhanced dog with rifle attachments which was present in the same laboratory with the group's leader, the Gundog was formerly a prototype weapon developed by Automa Enterprises. When the ten escapees came across a town under siege, they were introduced to the Machine and its robot and cyborg agents. During their attempt to rescue the townspeople, the group was nearly destroyed due to inexperience. They only survived due to the Gundog somehow attuned to Knight. Its aggressive style and unrelenting rapid attacks proved more than a match for several waves of Machine agents, but as it leaped to shield Knight, a precision shot destroyed it. Though a tragic loss for the group’s appointed leader, it was this painful blow that gave them leave to act unbridled. Of all, Ashley displayed the most callous abuse of his abilities which annihilated the remaining Machine agents. However, during this sad time, it was Ashley who named the group. It being his way of escaping the difficulties of reality, Ashley sidestepped the impact of this event by giving it new meaning. One by one, the group agreed, realizing they no longer had time to mourn their losses as they were going to meet the Machine again. This time though, they would be prepared and the world would come to know them. They were Gundogs.
