Robin was never rich. Her career prospects as a SINless barrens dweller were slim. All she had was her looks, her street smarts, and her drive to get out of this place.

When the Shotozumi gave her an offer, she jumped on it.

They told her that she wouldn't even feel it. That she'd just fall asleep and wake up with more money on her credstick. She would be protected by guards at all times, and they promised her that her family would be looked after.

They gave her the surgery, enhanced her looks, and implanted the wires.

They had lied, of course. Yet she remembered nothing, except for painful bruises. She was not allowed to leave the building for security reasons. She was expected to remain lithe and beautiful, while also spending the day working.

But she was no longer on the streets. She was safe.

Then, she emerged. A whole new world was opened to her, that of the matrix. She began to feel the implants in her head, the dull throb of the data being blocked. She decided she had had enough.

She submerged, and destroyed the chrome inside her head cutting her out of what was happening.

What she learned was horrifying. But there was no going back.

She instead, decided to turn against the Yakuza. By this point, she had become one of Seattle's most popular Bunraku dolls, with a waiting list a mile long. She began reaching out, trying to find anyone willing to listen. Trying to help burn the despicable people who dehumanised her.

And so, she remains a bird in a gilded cage, singing to her allies in secret over the matrix. Hoping one day to be free.

Game information: Robin must be taken at Loyalty 4 or higher.

Robin remembers everyone who uses her services, and will gladly sell out any of them if it will ruin their lives or hurt the Yakuza. She will do so through her courier sprites, which look like Songbirds or her data sprites leaving watermarked messages on innocuous spam emails.

In return for her services, Robin will call in favours to hurt the Shotozumi-Gumi or people she believes that need to be punished.

As he situation is rather precarious, if a runner puts her in any physical danger or leaks information about her, she will instantly burn that runner.
