Overview

Diogo is a tall, lanky man, covered in wiry muscle, with tan skin and a thin moustache. His movements and speech are sluggish. He seems to be in a constant state of lethargy, never putting much urgency in anything. He always wears designer brands, and speaks with a distinct Portugese accent, with a tone that sounds like he's annoyed to be putting effort into the act of speech.

Born to an old-money family of former Portugese nobility, Diogo has never had to work for anything in his life. He attended the best in private education, despite achieving very little academically, and played a smattering of sports, from football, to water polo. Given his family connections, a seat was kept warm for him at Lusiada, as a Junior Executive in the Department of Sweet Fuck-All. There he stayed, wallowing in the pleasures he'd become jaded to, until Spinrad Industries bought Lusiada. Given his social connections, his lack of useful function in a job with responsibilities as vague as the exact time of his lunch 'hour', and inability to get rid of him, he was shipped off to Seattle.

Since the only work he did before was attend meetings, he gradually fell into shadow work. Even this work didn't really suit him; he was a foreigner in Seattle, with most of his connections useless to him. Without knowledge of American culture, let alone the intricacies of the Seattle shadows, he floundered. But nonetheless, he made do, flitting around in his eternal state of bored luxury.

So, what do you need to know when working with Diogo? Overall, Diogo is a bad Johnson. Not the 'cunning shark who will find a devious way to backstab your team when you least expect it' kind of bad. He's just bad at being a Johnson. He'll set up a meet at a fancy restaurant with a bill the size of month's rent, and forget to tell you what name the reservations are under. If he shows up at all, it'll be an hour late. He might have forgotten about the meet, cancelled the reservations, or never got them in the first place.

If you actually get to meet with him, he will be frustratingly difficult to talk to. He'll smoke, drink, pick away at his food, and fuck around in AR while giving you the bare minimum of detail necessary, all in a droning voice with an annoyed tone that says 'this is an unbearable chore.' If a runner ever calls him out on this, he will get offended, and start insulting them. It doesn't take much to set him off, and as someone of the privileged class, he feels it's his duty to defend his honour, so he will make a scene if words get harsh.

Runners have mixed opinions on Diogo. On one hand, his eccentricities are annoying impediments to the job, and his laconic speech often leaves out important details that have gotten teams in trouble. On the other hand, the man is very easy to negotiate with. A silver-spooned fop like him never learned the value of nuyen, and given how eager he is to leave a meet, teams can often talk him well above the initial pay, just by being persistent enough. The corporation is also well aware of how bad Diogo is, so he's never tasked to hire for a serious job, but the pay is always good relative to the difficulty. So, if you end up running for Spin, you could work for a worse Johnson.
