Bill's loyalty can not be raised above 3, outside of a private run.  +
Lucia is under a luck curse from a dragon that she can't figure out how to break. Whenever she performs a check or uses her Lucky feature, roll a d6, on a 1 the check has the opposite effect than intended, similar to the "Bad Luck" quality.  +

This contact will not do any active checks that require her to leave her sanctum for fear of being caught.  +
A
Agamemnon has been burned hard by allowing himself to get too close to people in the past, and he is slow to trust as a result - he cannot be taken as a contact with a starting loyalty rating of less than 3, and will burn a runner if his loyalty drops below this threshold.  +, Agamemnon works primarily through intermediaries, operating out of a fortified underground bolt hole which he is very reluctant to leave without a good reason – -2 on all rolls that require him to physically leave his sanctuary (though he can use astral projection without penalty), and he will refuse to do so at all during daylight hours.  +
The contact will charge 2 chips for the price of 1 if called upon for an unpaid favor  +
Brodie J spends all of his time at various clubs, pumping his body full of every substance he can, so recovery periods are rough. When contacting Brodie J before 6PM in-game, roll 1d6, on a 5 or 6, he answers. Otherwise he is completely zonked out and can't help you.  +
This is someone who doesn't think that their contacts are runners and doesn't understand the whole runner thing. If they find out you are a runner, immediately make a test of loyalty. If you fail the test of loyalty, they will think you are a terrorist, burn you and contact law enforcement. If you succeed in a test of loyalty, they will be willing to listen to you explain yourself and even help you leave the runner life. You may be able to convince them to associate with the Shadows. Contact a GM or thematics if this happens as it may involve the removal of that tag. Gear contacts with this contact will only sell you legal gear, or restricted gear with the appropriate licenses unless you conduct a social test to convince them the lack of paperwork is for a benign reason.  +
An experienced espionage agent who is very talented at her job; there is a good chance any conversation with her is being recorded, and she hacks runner commlinks almost habitually.  +
Silvers is a busy man, and has no patience for time wasters. When you call him, you will have thirty seconds to make your pitch (the GM should time this). You must tell him what you need and what you can offer him, either Nuyen or valuable favors. If you haven't piqued his interest by the time your thirty seconds are up, he will hang up on you. To get back into contact with him, you must call his office and sit on hold for a full hour.  +
Due to being developed in a Renraku host, the corp almost always has their eye on Angela. It's extremely risky for her to leave her host, and usually can't for long. Angela will not leave her host unless her contact is loyalty 3 or higher  +
He is not a very brave individual. Ardella never stands up directly for his believes. He'd rather deal with his problems indirectly.  +, Due to his upbringing, he never had any real contact, with the downtrodden, or with the shadow community. Most of his experience comes from watching trid shows, and we all know how accurate(Not) a picture those portray. As such he sees shadowrunners, as mostly brutish vigilantists who'd rarely do anything out of the kindness of their own hearth.  +
-2 to Networking tests  +
Asahiro will not aid you with anything that he doesn't see benefiting the corporation. If he sends you to do a job, it's because he has a stake in it going in a particular direction. He approves of putting down crime, striking against other corporations or furthering Shiawase's influence, but disapproves of anything that risks his standing, deals with malign, unnatural forces or is of no direct use to Shiawase or himself.  +
The GM rolls in secret a 1d6, if the roll is a one, Asuna will tell the player they are busy taking care of family matters.  +
B
Living a fairly nomadic lifestyle on the edge of Salish makes contacting Beastmaster troublesome at times.  +
This is an example negative aspect. You can write the fluff text here. Be sure to clear the negative aspect with thematics. If you do not wish to have a negative aspect, feel free to delete this section.  +
You probably don't want to smuggle yourself or anything else with this guy. He's not named Bilge-Rat for nothing.  +, He's... not very good at social things with people. Something about all the rats.  +
Black Paladin does bounty work all over the world - there's no guarantee he's going to be nearby. Always do an availability test for this contact with their connection +3 than normal.  +
BobbieJo does not play well with others. Increase social thresholds by 1 and treat any social glitch with BobbieJo as a critical glitch.  +
This is someone who doesn't think that their contacts are runners. If they find out you are a runner, immediately make a test of loyalty. If you fail the test of loyalty, they will think you are a criminal, burn you and attempt to bring you to justice. If you succeed in a test of loyalty, they will be willing to listen to you explain yourself. This aspect is unlikely to apply to characters who have the Guanyin quality.  +
