When You Reach Me

From ShadowHaven
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Rougarou's a child of the shadows; her mother was a runner, and her father was a wage slave. When Rougarou was young, her mother left to go "visit her Uncle William." That night, her mother never returned. She waited up all night to tell her father when he got home from work, but he never came home, either.

Then, in early October of '81, Rougarou received a mysterious package from Uncle Bill. It was a bear--an exact replica of her childhood teddy bear. In its voice box, the bear had a coded message spoken by her mother. Members of the Haven jumped to help, and--after some decoding--drove across the continent to help Rougarou find her messing parents.

Key Players

Rougarou

Shadowhaven runner and--in an odd turn of events, the metaplot's initial J. Rougarou pulled the strings of a mystery to find her parents and--in the process--uncovered the specter of a dark organization in Appalachia.

Rougarou found her parents, both alive. Her father, unfortunately, had been blank-slated all those years ago but she has reunited with her mother and is on call to do her part in eliminating this new threat of unknown scale.

Team Alpha

Uncle William / Kezmyr / Miho

Team Alpha is the trio of Rougarou's parents, plus his Uncle William, who is of no relation.

Uncle William is a hacktivist and a fixer loyal to tracking down Kezmyr's original personality. When not providing support to his team, he throws Humanis the middle finger by hacking signs during their rallies and trying to empty their coffers through clever code exploits.

Rougarou's father and a former wage slave of Ares, Kezmyr was a target of Rougarou's search for over a decade. While he's acquired a wealth of personalities to choose from, such as the dapper Englishman Woodrow Rogers, he has no memories or personality of his own when the persona chips are not installed.

Miho is an infiltrator and hair trigger. She excels with a sniper rifle or an assault rifle in her hand, and can pick most any lock with a physical access point. Her entire purpose in life was restoring the personality of her husband, whom she feels personally responsible for wiping until their search uncovered a dark and twisted organization that needs to be eradicated.

Plot

Part 1

Rougarou gets a special gift in the mail: a bear with her mother's voice. She and a small team from Shadowhaven use this bear to track down her "Uncle William", who has managed to get himself locked in a small town jail for sabotaging digital signs at a Humanis Rally and causing some light riots. The team, aided by creative thinking and smart utilization of each member's strengths, broke out this "Uncle William" and find themselves one step closer to Rougarou's parents.

Part 2

After busting Uncle William out of jail, our protagonists learn that Rougarou's parents are on the job and believe they have backup that is not there. The team, minus Gh0st who stays in Huntington to hack remotely, travels to a resort that held a presidential vault back in the 20th century. The group realizes that the auction they're attending is for purchasing personafixed people. They begin devising plans on how to take out the purchasers when an SOS beacon comes through. Rougarou and Zephyr rush to Rougarou's mother to provide fire support, but become locked in the underground vault.
