Character Information

Summary

An opportunistic blade adept, decent with automatic weaponry, and pretty strong swimmer. Has a grapple hand and a bulky partial cyberleg crammed with fun stuff you can't replicate with Awakened mojo. He's here to get rich/live fast/have fun.

Goals

► Get filthy stinking rich.

► Go with the flow, the flow being mostly dictated by his mentor spirit, the Sea (who can shut off his foci).

Acquire a boat so people will stop taunting him about not having one.

► Following that last goal: Cease being so damn sprawl-bound. Seattle's been good, but Scurvy does not appreciate being so restricted. He'll need contacts.

► Be a loyal member of Doris's motley "crew", such as it is. (The Sea says to do so or else!)

► Find the Crystal Coconut.

Background

Born in Miami (probably), this ork left home pretty quick to be a smuggler down the Caribbean way. Shortly after, he Awakened and turned full-on pirate, leaning on his adept powers to stay one step ahead. The crew swung around the League, moving in and out of the CAS while getting shot at and generally having a good time. The Sea took an iterest in him after he almost drowned and was marooned on a deserted sandspit. He was part of a fairly established crew, but not one of particular fame/notoriety.

He lost an arm and then leg at some point on the job, possibly to a crocodile; his stories are never consistent. As a result he had to get them replaced with cheap cyberware. He's gotten over the essense loss, and is no longer particularly peturbed or melancholy about the dimishment of his adept abilities. In fact, he rather enjoys what his augmentations enable, and his limb replacements have allowed him to take other fun biotech augmentations. However, he does have some lingering fear of big scaly lizards.

At some point something happened, and he shipped up to Seattle with nothing but the clothes on his back and the location of the Daze. With Alessa P's help, he managed to get used to this Johnson thing and avoid being too flashy. His reasons for leaving the pirate life are unclear, but one thing's for sure: His time as a Haven runner has been good to him. Since rolling up to the Emerald Sprawl, Scurvy's traded-in his old dead man's leg and unlocked more magical ability.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Positive

  • Mentor Spirit Sea, Mentor's Mask (Shoot First, Don't Ask, Battle Hardened)
    • What's mine is mine. What's yours can soon be mine. The Sea is a harsh mistress, but did help Scurvy save himself. He avoids angering her.
  • Ambidextrous
    • To swing a sword in one hand and an SMG in the other or swing from a grapple hand at the same time, in the piratical fashion.
  • Drug Tolerant and Narco
    • Nephritic screens? Nah. Getting the narco treatment was one of the upsides of losing his lower leg.
  • School of Hard Knocks
    • Scurvy's been studying at this school all his life; he's learnt the hard way it pays to keep in the know.

Negative

  • Dependant: Demanding
    • But I spent all me money on me rum, rum, rum
    • I spent all me money on me rum
    • It seemed a better choice for me
    • One night suited me perfectly
    • So I spent all me money on me rum, rum, rum
    • I spent all me money on me rum
  • Mild Phobia (Uncommon): Crocodiles/Alligators
    • It'll be good to get away from the swamps. They don't have those up here right? Hang on, do you hear that ticking noise?
  • Poor Self Control: Thrill Seeker
    • I shall never be caught!
  • Ugly And Doesn't Care
    • I'm class, you're not! Not particularly good-looking to begin with, and he's been in so many dirty fights his face is a mess.

Threshold Result
1 Scurvy is a disease resulting from a lack of vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Early symptoms of deficiency include...
3 Looks like someone out of the old Cyberpirates of the Caribbean tridshow. Images of his mentor's mask and grapple hand.
6 Some ancient song? File's pretty corrupted. Search went a little off topic there. It seems Atlantic Security and various Caribbean authorities have files on him and his old pirate gang. Quite a few of them have been caught, and a few others have washed ashore dead.

Threshold Result
1 "So they let this pirate guy onto the Haven? Swings a cutlass, who does that, it's 2081, not 1881."
3 "Yeah, so I heard he's a scrawny ork physical adept, got sword weapon focus and some amount of obvious cyber. Got a real weird mentor's mask. Pretty nasty looking without it, too."
5 "He used to kick around in the Caribean, moved up to Seattle recently. Wonder why he left that den of rum & piracy? Seriously, guy reeks of rum. Maybe he's running from his old crew. Haven't heard of a bounty. Perhaps he's up here searching for something."

Appearance

Not particularly big for an ork, but pretty lean/mean. Scurvy has a scarred face in the not-attractive way, and a many-times broken nose. He's got a simple ring earring , dark-circled eyes, and a pretty short black beard, somewhat broken up by the scars. Pretty bad teeth, but some of them look valuably metallic. 'Ware-wise his left arm is mostly an obvious grapple hand, and his right leg is bulk-modded cyber beneath the knee.

Clothing

Colourful, scuffed. Usual everyday business attire is a beaten-up camo Globetrotter jacket covered in earth tone gel packs, topped with an electrochromic scale-patterned cloak. Baggy cargo pants conceal his bulky partial cyberleg. Has been known to wear a synthleather tricorn. (Yeah, the current art really does not represent this) Rocks a gold-coloured skull-like ballistic mask. He does occasionally switch it up with an Ace of Swords.

Matrix Persona

Generic suited male persona, but with a yellow rubber duck head. The duck has an eyepatch and feathered tricorn pirate hat.
