Character Information

Summary

Monty is an Naga Aboriginal shaman, who can also attempt to fufill a face role if the situation calls for it. He's a bit naive, but tries to make up for it with optimism, raw charm, and an element of unpredictability that only a giant snake wizard could take advantage of.

Goals

Right now, just keeping the heat lamps on

Background

Hugo was born in the Australian outback in the Northern Territory in 2052. For some reason unknown to him, he was abandoned shortly after birth, and would have soon died if not for Daniel and Mirrin Embry, a pair of Aboriginal anthropologists had not come across him, and decided to adopt him. With significant effort, his new mother and father managed to acquire an exception and he received a SIN.

His childhood was fairly adventurous, traveling around Australia wherever his parents work took them. Constantly on the move, his parents had to homeschool him, and his mother was able to school him in the more arcane arts once he began to show an aptitude for such things. Eventually, he applied and was accepted into the University of Melbourne, and pursued a degree in Parazoology. After graduating with his Masters, he found consultant work with a Chinese Research Firm, and worked as a cataloger for several years.

Several years into his career, Monty was no longer satisfied with his work. His youthful exuberance had been replaced by monotony,and he was beginning to look at other careers. He decided to go on one last trip, and ended up being sent to Vancouver Island with a small team to study awakened owls.They had been there for a single night before a team of Shadowrunners ambushed and killed the rest of the group, only fleeing after Monty ripped the life from several of them. In the aftermath, when he tried to contact his employer, he found out that the firm had been bought out and gutted in mere hours.

After dragging the bodies of his colleagues and the shadowrunners he had killed onto a pyre, and then giving them the proper respects, Monty realized that this line of work probably wasn't going to work out any longer. After consulting with Dragonslayer, who made his intentions for him quite clear, he found the commcode for a fixer on one of the dead runners, and with few other options presenting themselves, he decided to head down to Seattle and give a new career a shot.

Appearance

Monty, like all Naga, takes after a specific non-awakened snake species, for him, the common tree snake, or Dendrelaphis punctulatus. Because of his ancestor species, Monty is a fair bit slimmer than most other Naga, but only slightly shorter. His top scales are black, with a blue under layer, and his underbelly is quite yellow.

Clothing

While not requiring clothes, Monty usually wears his critter armor, which is built to resemble a standard brown leather jacket, and, if he's on the job or just feeling like it, a custom made slouch hat.

Astral Appearance

Pretty much the same, but he seems to smolder at times

Matrix Persona

Same basic appearance, but there's a soft blue glow under all his scales
