Coming soon as part of the mysterious “skins system”: Dark Parade Adagio! To battle immortal ennui, Dark Parade Adagio demands that the world’s elite curiosities parade annually before him to perform. To inspire as much as a raised eyebrow from an heir of the dragon seraphim is a triumph, but such a moment is eternally rare.
We eagerly anticipate delivering this haunting skin to Adagio’s biggest fans!

IN-GAME MODEL CLOSEUP & LORE
Adagio lore excerpt:
Adagio lounged in the eye socket of his long-dead ancestor. His fist curled under his chin as he gazed downward at his guests — or he might have been napping. Behind him, a parade of people and creatures curled down the cervical vertebrae of the dragon: supplicants, rulers, politicians and chiefs who’d come to beg for his attention or affection. Each wore feathered couture designed for the occasion; the gentlemen mirrored a bare-chested fashion inspired by Adagio himself.
THOUGHTS FROM SUPER EVIL ART DIRECTOR CHAINSAW
Super Evil art director Chainsaw discusses the Dark Parade Adagio skin.
“Anytime we design a new skin, we look at how we can satisfy the aspirations and dreams the player has for the character they choose, but in a slightly different way. Adagio is an aristocratic, ancient dragon prince, with more than a hint of darkness. As the song says, ‘Please allow me to introduce myself; I’m a man of wealth and taste.’ I’ve always enjoyed this quality of his.
“I took that gentlemanly, yet darkly seductive, aspect one step further for Dark Parade Adagio: tactical intelligence with sophistication is in line with the dreams of the kind of person who would choose our awakened legend. I pictured myself as Ringo and thought, ‘What would Adagio look like if he came to hire me in a dark bar? What would Adagio look like as a night creature?’ When one of the ladies at work steepled her hands and said, ‘Oh yessss,’ I knew I was on the right track.”
