Character Information


A heavily Augmented decker who was trained as a Street Samurai and is on a quest for vengeance against the person who killed his Sensei.


To find the person who has killed his master and exact a bloody revenge.

To become powerful enough to perform this task.


Ronin was born in 2058 as a result of an extra marital affair between a Kanaga made man and an ork joygirl. When the affair was discovered, Ronin's mother was killed, his father disowned and he was orphaned.

He grew up in orphanages and on the streets, with lofty ideals of one day becoming a Samurai of legend. As with many who grow up poor and downtrodden, he found an escape from the world in technology.

He began to deal BTLs on street corners at a young age. He made a killing, which he invested in buying better tech and learning how code. He upgraded his commlink and began to record, pirate and enhance BTLs. By the age of 14, he was well known in his neighbourhood as "The BTL Guy".

Unfortunately, making too much of a splash and stealing IP from syndicates led to him making enemies. The Shotozumi sent a squad of leg breakers to him and he was left for dead.

That is when he found his Sensei, Hatori.

Hatori-Sensei brought him under his roof and nursed him back to health. Hatori saw great potential in Ronin and begun training him as a Street Samurai. He began taking jobs to protect his neighbourhood, using his new skills and old tech skills to protect those weaker than him.

Eventually, Ronin met his Fixer, who sent him on his first shadowrun. The nuyen he earned helped him to become more than metahuman.

Everything was going well, till April 4th, 2076. Ronin returned to his Sensei after a run gone bad and found him dead, decapitated by a sword. This sent Ronin into an inhuman rage, swearing upon his honour he would bring this murderer to justice.

Ever since then, he has been taking more shadowruns and protecting his community less. He needed the augmentations to find and bring the murderer to justice, at the cost of Ronin's soul and sanity. Now he is a killing machine, both in the real world and on the matrix, kept only in check by his Code of Honour.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Code of Honour: Path of the Samurai

May not kill anyone from surprise or via treachery. May not break his word once given.

Gi, or Righteousness: Bathe regularly, avoid the taint of lust, wine or drug

Yuki, or Courage: Must never flee from battle unless he is the last one left.

Jin, or Kindness: Be selfless and kind to those under your protection.

Rei, or Respect: Act with courtesy and know correct manners.

Makoto, or Honesty: Do not perform acts you disagree with and mean what you say.

Melyo, or Honour: Once his word is given , he will go to any length to ensure that he will uphold his end of the bargain.

Chugi, or Loyalty: Once the samurai pledges his loyalty, this bond is for life.

Driven: Avenge the Death of his Sensei

Hatori-Sensei was murdered by an assassin. Ronin honourbound to find the person who has done this and slay him.

He met and killed a man who fought suspiciously like his master- a Renraku Red Samurai washout. He's sure Renraku had something to do with it.

Addiction: Dreamchips

In a past life, Ronin dealt and used dreamchips. Their call is still heavy upon him, and he often indulges this habit.
