It's pretty good. I'd say more BOD, less LOG. The EDG is painful, and having no actual ranks in Sneaking or Automatics could be a problem. I'd probably try to fit JoAT in.

He's planning on JOAT at x2 cost (with Karma).  Ettiquete, Sneak & Auto on the list to pick up with Karma

If AGI is 9, you're going to get a bigger bonus from Agile Defender than Too Pretty to Hit.

What is Tough and Targeted?

What is Tough and Targeted?

TOUGH AND TARGETED
(BONUS: 10 KARMA)
The character is well-known as one of the biggest badasses
on the streets. However, one way to make a
name for yourself on the streets is to be known as the
guy who killed the top dog. At least once a month or
so, the character is randomly attacked by an up-andcoming
rival looking to make a name for himself.
The Professional Rating of the guy who comes looking
for him is equal to the character’s Street Cred. Should
the character with this quality be defeated by his rival,
assuming he lives (the rival will be satisfied so long at
the character goes into overflow damage; death is not
necessary), then this quality is removed without Karma
expenditure, but the character’s Street Cred resets to 0
and he gains 1 point of Notoriety. Nobody likes a loser,
chummer.



Street Cred is currency for Faces- I'd go with something else since sooner or later you are bound to lose.

Why not?
If you're a badass then you're badass, looking really good and being able to talk doesn't do much to change the situation as I see it.
