Character Information

Summary

Ancients Made Woman and Criminal SINner just trying to make it in the world, getting by with only her good looks, street smarts, and literal magic powers.

Goals

  • Pay off her debt to society Lone Star and burn her Criminal SIN.
  • Face the Dweller at the Threshold and confront her inner demons acquire greater magical power.
  • Upgrade her bike and actually learn how to ride it properly.

Background

Born in Montreal in 2055 as a Cross Applied Technologies SINner, her family fell on hard times when Crash 2.0 devastated their corporation. Her mother was extracted (she later learned that it was by Ares Macrotechnology), leaving her and her father to fend for themselves; he fell in with the Ancients, and she Awakened soon after. She ended up raised by the gang after he died, and after a few years she found herself eager for a change of scenery, so she managed to get herself smuggled out of the Republic of Quebec and into the Seattle Metroplex.

In 2071 she was arrested for dealing Tempo and given a criminal SIN by Lone Star, before they lost the law enforcement contract with the city due to the poor handling of the crisis. At 18, after spending some time behind bars, she was paroled and given her patch as a full member of the Ancients shortly thereafter; thus began the life of a career criminal, riding with go-gangers in Tarislar and routinely getting picked up for minor offenses.

Recently she has moved up in the criminal world, getting Made after dealing with a troublesome Spikes lieutenant and making the acquaintance of an up-and-coming fixer with the Laesa Syndicate who started getting her street-level shadowrunning work. After making a bit of a name for herself (as well as picking up a more connected fixer with the Ancients to help make up for her checkered reputation), she has earned an invitation to join the Haven.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Positive

  • Made Woman (Ancients) + Rank (Lieutenant)
    • A lifetime member of the Ancients who earned her colors at 18 and her full patch at 24; recently promoted to Lieutenant and given her own squad to lead.
  • Mentor Spirit (Seducer)
    • A devil on her shoulder who whispers in her ear, urging her to indulge in her whims and stir up trouble wherever possible.
      • Appears to her as Ishtar, the Babylonian goddess of love and beauty.
  • Spirit Champion + Spirit Whisperer
    • A rare black mage who respects and deals fairly with spirits - word tends to get around about such things, and while some are put off others are curious.

Negative

  • Lightweight
    • A lush who can barely hold her liquor - it might make getting drunk easier, but it can lead to a lot of trouble when she forgets to detox herself regularly.
  • Poor Self Control (Thrill Seeker + Vindictive)
    • A consummate party animal who is willing to try anything once - just don't get on her bad side, or else your name might end up in her little black book.
  • SINner (Criminal) + Ex-Con
    • A branded criminal after being arrested for selling drugs as a teenager, as well as numerous other times in the decade since.
      • Parole Officer - Inspector Charles Dreyfus, a transfer from La Gendarmerie in Quebec.
        Holds weekly meetings at his office in Puyallup City on Wednesdays at 10am, as well as irregular and unscheduled "check-ins" both in-person and online.
        He is a tall Vietnamese human with black hair and a pencil moustache who typically dresses in brown pinstripe suits; uses a Pink Panther persona on the Matrix.
        The two have a bit of a love-hate relationship, both appreciating having someone to banter with in French (she calls him "Javert", he calls her "Valjean"), and they regularly engage in battles of wits attempting to out-fox one-another. He has had strong suspicions about her gang affiliations for some time now, but has never been able to prove conclusively that she is consorting with criminals in violation of the terms of her release; he is currently under the impression that she is gainfully employed at the Daisy Chain as a bartender (an illusion which the Ancients help to perpetuate).
