Character Information


Maddox is a psionic esper new to Seattle.


Maddox goal is to become a shadowrunner.


Griffin Garcia was born in 2053, to a middle-class family in Sacramento, Cal Free State. At a very young age, Griffin was plagued with nightmares. Of course, his parents would tell him to go back to bed if it wasn’t that damn snake watching him it would be that frightening animatronic robot. With no one to turn for help, Griffin had to gather up the courage and killed the nightmare spirit that had tormented him. In 2066, at the age of 13 awakened. Griffin's parents were visibly upset and sent him away to the Psionics Studies Institute in New Jersey. It was here that Griffin would learn to control psionic abilities, travel the astral realm, and be educated in magical traditions. Eventually, after graduating 6 years later and with no prospects decided to move to Boston with other graduating students. From 2072 until 2076 this band of young psionics committed small crimes to make ends meet. It was on the mean streets of Boston that Griffin learned about magical security, awakened gangs, how to spot awakened hangouts, spot magical traps, and hang out with SURGE'd folk.In 2076 Boston was locked down, due to the CFD outbreak. All of Griffin's friends died trying to escape the city. Griffin escapes and survives in the wildlands with the help of Vidma Oxika the Snake spirit. Of course, Griffin doesn’t believe in mentor spirits and considers the snake to be an unconscious part of his psyche that came forward to help him survive. In 2078 Griffin lands in Seattle and into the hand of Djinn, owner of a SURGE'd strip bar and fixer. Djinn offered Griffin a step up from failed small-time criminal to a shadowrunner. With nothing to lose Griffin plans to make as much money as he can and live long enough to spend it and retire, maybe move back to California if he can ever forgive his parents.
