A brained-out bug-SURGEd weirdo who likes drones, 'decking' with his extra-hot RCC, and meeting new people.
- Get more drones!
- Make new friends!
- Feel better about himself!
A gifted child, Robin Cheng was on the fast-track to a well-paying if stressful job as a security spider when one of Wuxing's well-known geomantic projects went sideways. As his educational creche was overtaken by a freak mana storm, Robin ran for cover, but did not exactly escape unscathed. Injured. facial features unrecognizable, and bearing a viscerally horrifying appearance, Robin went off the grid, assumed dead. Working his way up as a drone manager and decker, the newly-renamed Ladybird Cheng has wormed, or rather, insected, his way into the big-time.
Narrative Significant Qualities
First Impression - Ladybird tries very hard to make sure the first thing people notice about him is not the bug stuff.
Impenetrable Logic / Instinctive Hack - SURGE can do weird stuff to your mind.
Distinctive Style - I mean, what are you gonna do when you've got bug-face syndrome, dress normal?
Social Stress - Looking like a literal insect-person and having it effectively ruin your life sucks! Don't talk to Ladybird about it! They will not respond well!
Unsteady Hands - Ladybird hates using his flesh-body for actual work, it's why he never actually got good at engineering. Stress, and the involuntary rewiring of his central nervous system by SURGE, do not help.
Astral Hazing - SURGE just kinda does this. The bad vibes don't really help with the uh, the image problem.
Impaired Attribute (Body / Strength) - Slight already, Shaoqi's new fresh insectoid look has come with further losses in bulk and muscle mass.
Metagenic Improvement (Intuition / Logic) - Brain Go Zoom, Ladybird has an unusually high cranium, but you don't really notice, thanks to uh...
Insectoid Features / Third Eye - Bug face. He's got bug face. There's a compound eye on his forehead, it's not good. It's bad bug face.

Ricky Gervis (False R4, Wuxing)
Drone Manager's License
Ladybird dresses in bright red and gleaming black, reflecting his chosen name. A slightly-insectoid ballistic mask is used to help keep his comrades and clients at ease, as well as assuage his own insecurities.
Ladybird's persona is a graceful, androgynous hybrid of human and bug, tastefully cartoony to avoid being eerie.
