Character Information

Summary

Scion practices the delicate art of violent rebirth. She wields soft words and subtle hacks instead of paintbrush or clay, and her canvas is the vulnerable underbelly of the corporate establishment. She assumes whatever identity she desires, slips in with a gentle smile and meticulously crafted algorithms, and tears apart the foundations one carefully-placed critical fracture at a time. After all, the only way to build a beautiful new world is from the ashes of the old.

Background

The trueborn children of the European nobility live a life of ease, learning to exert the subtle power of their birthright in the lap of luxury. Anna Cherisi Cosima de' Medici, firstborn daughter of an ancient house, never saw a moment of it. Her mother was a servant to Lorenzo Ottaviano de' Medici, third in line heir to the house Patriarch, and her birth was the result of an ugly affair and a hushed pregnancy. Anna Cherisi never took a breath of the rarified air of her family's legacy; never walked the halls of the Uffizi; never basked in the adulation of the Fiorentini. She was shunned, hidden, and cast out of the dynasty before her eyes ever saw daylight. Were it not for antiquated Papal bulls and the punctilio of the nobility, the infant would never even have been born.

Anna spent her youth hidden in the shadows of opulence, always out of sight, but never out of reach of the guiding hand of European high society, lest the shame of her existence be revealed. Third-rate tutors were begrudgingly supplied, if mostly to keep her isolated from the public sphere. And so it was that an isolated and neglected girl grew into an isolated and neglected young woman.

At the tender age of 15, the ignominious scion escaped from her gilded cage and into the underworld of Florence. Perhaps her suffering had earned her a sidelong glance of pity from the Fates, because in a twist of karmic balance, the young runaway Emerged shortly after her escape. Suddenly, the young Medici finally had an edge in the world. Encryption melted at her fingers, and the electronic world was an open book. Combined with years of quietly observing the subtle art of manipulation on display on the Grand Tour and an unnatural beauty passed down her patrilineal line, she was a natural grifter, fleecing the Italian corporate middle class to make her way in the world.

But youthful indiscretions and petty crime soon gave way to cynicism and idle despair. Anna faced the ugliness of the world around her at every step, but it was those in power that truly confused her. The corporate elite, the noble houses... these individuals had finally achieved supremacy and held unfathomable power in their hands. But they did nothing. They amassed mountains of nuyen in invisible electronic accounts, but what had they done for humanity? Where were the monuments? The masterpieces? Where were the great works that left the common man awestruck? All this power, this wealth, wasted on a class of visionless boors.

And so Anna Cherisi left for the New World with a vision of rebirth. She had the skill to reinvent herself and seize whatever resources she needed. But more importantly, she had the clarity of purpose to know what to do with it. The fifth world was gone, but the sixth had not yet learned from its lessons. It needed change. It needed transformation. It needed a Renaissance.
