Soma was known formerly as a superhero named Gun Caliber, but had a tarnished reputation due to many scandals involving drugs, sexual innuendos, and overall public indecency. As luck may have it, he is one of the few Lost Numbers, a select minority who are gifted with a rare genetic code required to equip Vector's V.I.P.E.R. (Vector Intelligent Protective Enforcement Reflex) Suits.
The technological conglomerate known as Vector decides to give Soma the Stray Buckle, transforming him into the Variable Combat Soldier: Strega. Will Soma become the hero that he is meant to be or will he give in to his bad habits?
...to be honest, he'll most likely give in to his bad habits: fast guns, faster women, and a whole lot of intoxication.
Japan’s government has enacted federal restrictions on superhero activity through special ID cards developed by tech conglomerate, Vector, for monitoring and tracking.
Soma Kusanagi, part-time superhero and full-time social miscreant, has become a tester for Vector’s latest model of supersuit. With this technology, Soma can transform into the Variable Combat Soldier, Strega, the latest in villain-bludgeoning power!
In the midst of his deviant escapades, a shadowy plot to turn the whole of society into monsters is taking shape! Unless his libido isn’t kept in check, Soma and new partner, Sayuri, must uncover and stop this mysterious plot before it’s too late!
Sayuri is a new employee of Vector who starts off on the wrong foot with Soma. Aside from that, she is one of the few Lost Numbers able to equip the V.I.P.E.R. Suit. Unlike Soma, Sayuri's athletic prowess allows her to tap into the V.I.P.E.R. Suit's abilities. However, she lacks in actual combat experience. While armed with quick wits and the looks to match, she keeps others at arm's length for her own reasons.
Sayuri equips the Variable Combat Armor: Virsago which specializes in speed and agility, making it ideal for stealth and recon.
Known to the forces of evil as Heart Pink, Momoyo knows that being a superhero doesn't really pay the bills as much as it should. Hence, when she's not fighting crime she works part-time as an escort/companion to anyone willing to pay for a fun night on the town...or in her tights. It is with this job that she meets men from all walks of life, making her one of the biggest sources of information in town.
Soma is one of her regular customers and not only does she provide him with extra "services", but also with word off the streets that sometimes even Vector's surveillance cannot get a hold of.
Izumi is the current Head of Research and Development within Vector. She has been saved once by Soma as Gun Caliber and is the lead engineer of the V.I.P.E.R. Combat Suit. She's very reluctant to rely on Soma but sees much potential in both him and Sayuri using the Variable Combat Armors.
The head CEO of Vector, Kato oversees the technological development of both Strega and Virsago. Although he is known to the media as a successful businessman, his agenda for the company remains unknown...
