Try not to be terrified of Night Claws (Getting better at this!)
Twitch emerged around the age of 8, and this had a major effect on him. His mother knew that being SINless in Redmond and being emerged was a toxic combination. She scared him into hiding his abilities, convincing him that the bogeyman would eventually come to get him should he use them. He already had a constant twitch, so others his age tended to avoid him. Between the fear and shame he felt from his mother and the few mean interactions he had with others, he decided that remaining to himself was the best option.
Still, he needed something, so he withdrew to his room where he played with his electronics. Despite his mother's warning not to use his powers, he made his action figures battle each other, or played AR games, careful not to venture too far into the matrix. At the age of 16, he got a basic job working in a factory. Still, he avoided using his abilities except in private. It wasn't until a few months of living on his own that he ventured out into the matrix for the first time. He reached out, not knowing what it was he was searching for, happening upon a host that seemed to call for him. Not knowing what he was doing, he clumsily hacked his way in, coming face to face with the most terrifying persona he had ever seen. His mother was right, this was the bogeyman. He ran as fast as he could, but the bogeyman was faster, tracing him and tracking him down faster than Twitch could reset his living persona.
Night Claws visited him again, this time a little less defensive and a lot less scary, now that he realized he wasn't dealing with an attack on his school host, NCL School for the Gifted. Twitch agreed to attend the school, and has studied there the several months. He has shown a very aspected form of resonance, tending toward rigging, perhaps stemming from his early experience playing with wireless toys, especially the Voltron collection left him by his grandfather.
He runs now to deepen his experience with the Resonance. He feels like a technomancer, truly and for the first time he feels like this is where he belongs.

As for Twitch himself, he is easily described as average height, although he likes to claim being slightly taller than average. He is plain looking, aside from his unkempt appearance and continual twitch. That's where the name comes from. Somewhere after he emerged, he developed a mild, continuous twitch that affects different parts of his body at different times, but he is always twitching.
Despite wearing clothes that usually look nice on others, Twitch somehow manages to remain unkempt. He styles his hair every morning, but within the hour, it's sticking out odd again. He generally wears something like jeans, a graphic T, and his armor jacket, which appears similar to a hoody. When dressing up, he might wear a button down and a simple colored T, but, like everything else... they just hang oddly on him. Kid just can't catch a break.
Human, wearing a black jumpsuit and helmet like a racecar driver. There are blue glowing lines in a design, resembling something akin to Tron programs, not that many people know what Tron is now.
