Ex-Bunraku girl who is quick with her Streetline Special and quicker with her tongue.
- Retire in peace with a permanent high (or better) lifestyle
Kostina was a bright girl who was going places. She studied hard and earned, or so she thought, passage to the UCAS where she was going to make something of herself. It turns out that the group that had arranged her transport was a Red Vory trap, and she ended up working in a Bunraku parlor.
Most of the time, she wasn’t herself, and the times that she was were almost unbearable. Still, she used that time to devise her escape. She learned seduction, and expressed a seemingly genuine interest in one of the guards. He taught her to use a gun and she continued to hone her silver tongue, skills which would serve her well. While the bunraku girls were not meant to use drugs (personafixes gave the Vory all the control they needed), the guard would sneak inn some Bliss which helped her endure her time in the parlor more easily.
Kostina continued to hone her more devious skills, until she saw the opportunity. The safe had been left open, so she emptied it and bolted. She used the money to set herself up with a new identity, but knew it wouldn't last forever. Desperate and feeling she only had one real skill, she sought out a brothel, lucking upon Madame Butterfly who saw more than another working girl. Madam butterfly set her up to use the girl’s newfound skills. After a successful run, she continues to give her jobs. While Madame Butterfly says she is welcome to work in the shop aytime, Kostina has no desire to, and the madame does not expect her to ever take her up on it.
Narrative Significant Qualities
- Glamour: There is a distinct feeling that she is “more.” She moves with a grace that seems impossible for mortals, yet feels down to earth. When she speaks, you want to listen to her. This makes her great as a face, but also makes her very memorable. Not many forget the smoking 11/10 that they chatted up in the bar last night.
- Wanted: Stole 50k from the Red Vory on her way out. This bounty was increased to 65,000 after she was captured and subsequently was helped to break out, resulting in the death of quite a few Vory, including one particular higher up.
- Social Stress: When faced with someone Russian and especially if she knows they are Vory
- Driven: After the events of You Found Me, Kost swore to destroy the Sex Slave trade the Red Vory have setup between Russia and Seattle.

||While she may appear different many times, this has proven effective in keeping her off most people's radars.

- Work Visa (Model)
- Concealed Carry
Kostina is light-haired, as druid's tend to be, just shy of platinum blonde, with blue eyes. She is the same height as a tall human or short elf, and is slightly thinner than the average human of the same height. The Glamour that affects her makes her seem unnaturally better than she actually is, but, well, she's pretty good to begin with.
She is collecting a small assortment of "Run" appropriate (in other words, armored) wear, having recently acquired an Armante Dress that she is quite proud of and is excited to use at the next opportunity that presents itself. In her typical day-to-day, she will wear either her armor clothing, which blends in as black pants and a leather jacket that fit her motorcycle look or, if trying to be more casual, her form fitting armor set underneath a typical jeans and shirt. On runs, she will either dress appropriately for the occasion if she is using her Face skills, usually meaning her FFBA under whatever clothing is deemed appropriate, or will don her armor jacket if able for the extra protection. Even When she has a Face assignment, she usually plans a way to have the jacket available if (more like when) things go south.
Her matrix persona looks much like herself, although the Glamour has no effect in the matrix, so to a viewer that knows who she is, might look like a rather drab picture of her.
