Character Information

Summary

A strong but very shy boy, James was raised in a regular little Troll ghetto, and had the usual childish dreams and aspirations. After a very tragic and traumatic event occurred, he fell into the life of a Shadowrunner as a desperate attempt to somehow make things right.

Goals

Taking down each corporation, and finding his family who were stolen from him by one of these corporations.

Background

James was born in 2055, on July 26th, in Redmond like many Trolls who live in Seattle. He grew up in the less terrible neighborhood, Touristville, and thus was rather fond of the Brain Eaters who kept the peace. It was also encouraging and inspiring how the gang was a variety of people, with Elves, Humans, Dwarves, Orks, and Trolls all working together. Once he got a little bit older, he joined the gang, wanting to use his exceptional strength for something good, to make a difference. But his optimism didn't last long, as a few short years after he joined, there was a new Matrix and interference in the region which caused the gang to no longer be active.

On his own, James tried to keep his dream alive, running solo as he kept everyone in Touristville as safe as he could, determined that with the strength he was blessed with, he could change something. In 2071, before his 16th birthday, was the event that shook his entire world and stole his life from him. While he had been out, a squad of corporation goons had been sent into Redmond to secure some Troll families for an experiment. His parents had been some of the unfortunate souls that were randomly selected for this, and by the time he returned, it was too late. He saw as the vehicles drove off, and he tried to chase them on foot, but it was futile.

Cursing the name of every corporation he knew of, his inner struggle of what to do nearly broke him, as he questioned if life was worth it anymore after such an unforgivable failure. How could he have been such a fool, thinking that he could make any meaningful difference all by himself? At that moment, he nearly gave up, but a thought entered his mind just before he lost the last of his hope. He couldn't change anything, not by himself, but he didn't have to be by himself, and that was his mistake. But he would do his best to amend that mistake, by reviving the Seattle faction of the Brain Eaters, and together they would take down the corporations.

Before he could attempt such a feat, however, he had to make himself a person worthy of being followed, a leader that could be trusted and respected. For nine years, he has trained his body and his mind, pushing himself to be the best he could be, struggling the most with his social skills. Speaking with people and expressing himself properly was always difficult, being a shy person when he was younger, and distant after what happened to his friends and family. Now 25 years old, he feels ready to begin heading out and trying to make a difference once more, helping people however he can, as a Shadowrunner. He will lay down his life to further the cause, if that's what it takes, but he will atone for his mistake one way or another.
