Character Information

Summary

A technomancer and a technological prodigy from an early age, Vip3r has been at home in the Matrix since long before she emerged. She's a skilled hacker and street survivalist, and isn't bad at talking her way out of trouble either.

Unfortunately, Vip3r also suffers from a debilitating neurological condition caused by repeated encounters with Black IC. This makes it nearly impossible for her to keep a consistent schedule or work a regular job, and informed her decision to go back to hacking for a living.

Goals

For now, Vip3r is primarily seeking stability. She's hoping to save enough nuyen to find a neurologist willing to treat her, or at least help her figure out what's wrong with her.

Background

Vip3r taught herself to hack for fun and survival as a juvenile delinquent on the streets of Redmond. She was adopted as a teenager by a middle-class couple who put her through high school, where she proved to be such a skilled learner that she was handed a corporate scholarship that would almost cover a college education and give her a direct pipeline to a stable career. In a desperate attempt to cover the rest, Vip3r took a shadowrun that went south, instead earning her eight years in Shadow Lake Correctional Facility at the age of seventeen. Four years in, she was offered a deal that would shave two years off of her sentence. It was framed as a work opportunity, but instead, it made her a lab rat in an intense and dubiously-ethical technomancer research operation by MCT.

Having extracted all the knowledge they can from her, MCT turns Vip3r loose two years later, putting her back on the street with no family, few contacts, and not-insignificant neurological damage that's rendered her unable to hold a regular job or schedule.

With a criminal SIN and nowhere else to turn for income, she began taking small-time hacking jobs again. As she did, some people began to notice, and Vip3r eventually attracted the attention of the Eighty-Eights Triad. They offered to burn her criminal SIN and set her up with a fake if she agreed to work for them in exchange, and in no position to refuse, Vip3r accepted.
