The FisherKing, or alternatively T3hF1sh3rK1ng on the Matrix, presents themself as the avatar of the Legendary Fisherman from the YuGiOh card game in the Matrix. They specialize looking for data through the data oceans of the Resonance Realms of the Matrix--particularly the flow through Out of Band, but will have their sprites follow an intriguing stream to get the data. They then find a buyer and sell the data to them. Occasionally can be found goofing off in the Matrix on various games, from old emulators of before the Matrix, to the newest bleeding edge game tech.

FisherKing is amoral, which means they don't really much care what their data contains, only that it has some value. They follow loosely the idea that 'information should be acquirable by anyone', and embodies both the positive or negative connotations of that idea. No one, as yet, has seen FisherKing outside of the Matrix, so the metatype and actual physical characteristics of them are unknown. It is known they are a Technomancer (technoshaman, probably) of some stripe, from their interaction with sprites on the Matrix.

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Technoshaman FisherKing is a Technomancer from the Technoshaman stream, and knows many things that a technomancer and technoshaman would know.
Sprites 4 Days As a Technoshaman, FisherKing has a moderate amount of knowledge about Sprites, their behavior, and can (for a price) compile a sprite for those who ask to assist others.
Matrix Gaming FisherKing seems to be obsessed with games, both newer and older, particularly those played on the Matrix. They may know trivia, or can occasionally be counted on to act as a ringer in Matrix tournaments.
Resonance Realms Finding the perfect information's is important to their work, and to this end, they are good at going or sending a sprite where it is to find that information--which involves an amount of navigation to various realms in the Resonance. If someone knows what questions to ask and perhaps has something in trade, they are willing to assist with any inquires about such.
