Overview

"Saint Nick" is the name used by a large bearded man (those with an eye for such things may be able to tell that he has had troll reduction surgery) who lives in a cottage in the wilderness of Snohomish (along with a group of elves and a herd of reindeer spirits), where he and his helpers manufacture and distribute drugs as well as stockpile and sell illegal weapons. He seems to have some sort of sponsorship deal with KRIME, which allows him to spend most of his time running his favourite personafix chip and distributing "toys" (guns, ammunition, explosives, and - most importantly - combat stimulants) to "needy children" (shadowrunners).

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Blissfully Unaware Saint Nick believes himself to be Santa Claus himself, and will not react well to those who attempt to disabuse him of that notion; he accepts payment for his goods in the form of "donations to the orphanage" as well as "milk and cookie money". 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.
KRIME Konnections Saint Nick seems to have some sort of sponsorship deal with KRIME. +2 on Gear Acquisition rolls to acquire KRIME products (which he calls "gifts for kids on the Nice List"), as well as Networking rolls to get in touch with KRIME employees (who he refers to as his "special helpers").
Milk and Cookies Saint Nick loves to hand out candy to all the good children. +2 on Gear Acquisition rolls to acquire drugs and BTLs.
Spirit of the Season Saint Nick is not Awakened, but he has a surprisingly good rep in the astral community. +2 on Networking checks with Free Spirits.
We Got Guns Saint Nick always seems to have extra guns and ammo laying around. +2 on Gear Acquisition rolls to acquire weaponry and ammunition.
