Black Trenchcoat? High-class wannabe? Or just another means to an end? This character doesn't rely on combat skills, but her ability to manipulate others and maneuver herself to a position to administer a drug to that corporate manager, make a suggestion to the stressed-out wage-slave, or simply con her way at the boutique into a better pair of shoes.

Who knows if that last white-collar employee who went on a rampage downtown was truly mentally ill like the Trids say? Maybe he ran into the wrong person shopping for new kitchen supplies, heard the wrong word and a funny smell? Nah that's stupid; Occam's Razor says he just went nuts, grabbed a knife, and started hacking.

I like the concept. but, I question how this character would fit into most groups.
Also, Moderate kelpto that you would be taking into the public? That spells all sorts of disaster.
Improved Pot is limited to level 1 - you can buy it more than once for different limits.

Thanks.

The Improved limits are from the Chaos mentor. Two free ranks and they can be spent on the same limit (pg. 200 of Street Grimoire).

As for Klepto and some of the other qualities. I was just throwing down some different stuff. I did the character up to try and think outside of the box.

As for a group role, adjusting the Qualities can help with being a face. Also she could be useful in extractions, infiltrations and bypassing (meta)human security.

The question I have is with all this ability to changer her looks. Is a low-level SIN really low-level when you can change your face and fingerprints to match what's on the file?

Yes, a low-level SIN is still low-level. Rating 1 SINs have random age, nationality and sex, even if you can change that, try changing 4 feet in height to be a 6 year old elf girl as a 30 year old Male Human. Rating 2 SINs have a rough match, but still no supporting data such as biometrics that are checked at more secure locations. Rating 3 SINs have a match with sex, age, and nationality, but the supporting data is obviously fake, such as Chicken DNA with a background of being an earthworm. Rating 4 SINs (Best you can get at Chargen) have background data that's still only good on cursory checks, where they don't go into too much detail. That happens to include a 10,000 nuyen price tag. I could go into higher ratings, but you get the idea.

So, yes, you could match your face and fingerprints, but can you match age and height? Possibly. Can you use biometrics that don't actually exist? No. Rating 4 SINs can give you some biometrics (which you can't match to the DNA level, but you can match fingerprints), but anything lower, including Rating 3 SINs just doesn't offer what you need to pass a more secure checkpoint that has a more thorough check. At least, not from a narrative standpoint.

Also, your Social Limit should be 12. 8 from derived attributes + 2 from Improved Potential + 2 from Voice Control. I might even suggest you put your Improved Potential into Physical, as getting 12 hits is rather absurdly high, especially since you can break the limit with edge at that point anyways.
