Character Information


Paragon is a mage, an elf, and someone who probably breaks into buildings. They are a little bit frail too.

((I write short stories and post them in ParagonSs for this particular character.))


[WIP] Paragon has come to the running scene in Seattle after a grueling trek from a S(p)inradical industries bio-lab in UCAS territory. Perhaps it was luck that she made it this far.

Paragon appears to be in the business of Shadowrunning for the simple reason that not only does it make a bank-load of money, but she can actually have a choice. Besides, anything else is forbidden or unpalatable to her.

This Shadow runner is also interested in striking back against the corporation for personally wronging her, as well as the fact that said corporation has placed a significant bounty for her retrieval.

Paragon has also been battling with her own body; going "cold turkey" on the wide regimen of medications as prescribed by the laboratory should've rightly killed her, and she is still dealing with the aftermath of it.


Paragon ended up in an Spinrad(ical!) bio-lab at a very young age. There they lived, their adolescent period. Because of the unfinished laboratory work that requires Paragon to be present, they are wanted by Spinrad Industries. The exact nature of whether or not they were born "in-house" or picked up is still ambiguous to Paragon.

Paragons was severely impacted by the sterile environment they lived in, along with the schedule of medications they took as a child due to complications in the lab procedure. When they left the lab "amicably" they were very unsuited to shadowrunning in terms of their general health. It isn't uncommon to see Paragon sick with one malady or another, but she is much better since the first time Paragon went into a UCAS brand slum-town.

A shadow-running team had helped her out of the site on the side of breaching the lab for their goal, and had taken in the young lass because it seemed a little cruel to do otherwise, not to mention the fact that she had awoken right during that time. A self-proclaimed "father figure", the on-site director was severely displeased at the aspect of losing their (adopted?) child and has put down the nuyen down the necessary channels to put a bounty on an individual named "Valis Europa" that happens to match Paragons description.

The name Paragon is an in-joke to the shadowrunner group. They did not separate happily.

(I encourage GM's to come up with their own answers regarding the questions proposed by this background.)

Narrative Significant Qualities

Compromised Immune System: During her formative years, the combination of a very sterile environment along with the battery of immunosuppression regimens among other semi-experimental chemical therapies and procedures based upon the unique aspects of bodily physiology has resulted in a severely compromised immune system; A deteriating immune system prevents Paragon from breath unfiltered air without having an allergic reaction. Paragon is forced to constantly wear a respirator or at minimum a sterile mask under the risk of an allergic reaction that may degenerate with continued exposure. Although her condition has stabilized after a terrible couple of months after leaving the laboratory, it may still come up with a surprise.

She would normally carry a few spare respirators and similar equipment at her house for emergencies. Ares with low pollution or high air purity is pleasant to Paragon. She even carries a little card that neatly pegs her symptoms to some type of pollution-induced asthma.

Wanted: There is a standing bounty for the capture of Paragon. The bounty was created by the same lab that she lived in, a Spinradical subsidiary. This bounty is to the tune of 50,000. This is due to her unique biological composition and the amount of work they put down raising her for their science experiment, as well as the fact that another corporation could snatch it up for their own research. Her intimate knowledge of the lab's procedures and certain parts of its layout doesn't put at ease any of the security officials either.

Run History

By technicality, Paragon has committed to only one Shadow-run with the assistance of four shadowrunners, however that run was not in the local Seattle area. 03/02/2018
