Backstory & Description

Backstory
Nicknamed "Slobbertooth" for his notably large tusks, Josiah Willows was born a SINless child to his William and Zelda in Seattle in 2055, Josiah Willows did not expect to be a runner. He began manifesting the gifts of an adept when he was 8 year old, gifts his parents encouraged him to further develop and hone along with the natural athletic gifts he was born with. It was a nice childhood. His parents made enough money to own a small home, and they lived in a tightly knit corner of the sprawls. They had enough money that he was able to practice martial arts and still eat. He made fast friends with the Armstrong children, a third generation Japanese family, enough that he  would pick up Japanese, in addition to the Or'zet and English spoke in his home. To this day, he relies on Kazuya Armstrong as his primary fixer to get the tools he needs.

The happy childhood was destroyed in December of 2062. Josiah returned to his home one evening after visiting the Armstrongs to find it burning. His father had been hung and then shot in front of the building, his mother knocked unconscious and left with everything he and his family owned to burn in the fire. It was a Humanis hate crime executed by some small time gangers. That was also the first time that Slobbertooth heard the voice of the Wolf, chiding him to hunt the men who killed his family. For the next three years, the Armstrong family would provide him shelter, and he taught himself how to accurately fire a gun, keeping an ear open for news about the men murdered William and Zelda Willows.

In 2068, human supremacists began threatening the Armstrong family, having learned that they were, in their words "protecting a tusker who defames the purity of our sprawl." Slobbertooth left the house with everything he owned the following evening to protect the Armstrong family from further violence. Slobbertooth began his career running in the shadows, after "dealing" with the supremacists threatening Kazuya's family. While Slobbertooth relies on runs to pay the bills, he takes particular pride in the completion of any job that targets Humanis' or any other Human Supremacist group's operations, and will often jump at the chance to complete a job to get him closer to his parent's killers.

Daily Routine
Josiah "Slobbertooth" Willows is a night owl, most comfortable when he's out on the streets, hanging out in dive bars and with the rest of the delinquents he grew up with. He'll often arrive to the house around 8 am, and then leave again. Most of the time he's in the house, he'll be asleep in his room. When he's awake he's doing some basic workouts (pushups, sit ups, pull ups, etc.), eating, talking shop with Torrent and Krestov, or watching an action trid.

Personality
Slobbertooth is jovial most of the time, even in bad situations. He's experienced enough heartbreak and sadness that the standard trouble that comes from Shadowrunning usually fails to dull his spirits. For all that friendliness, the tusker has a short temper, especially when drunk. He has no problem starting a fist fight, and refuses to back down once a brawl starts.

Most people get the feeling that he's hiding something from them, or that he is trying to remain emotionally distant. Discussions of his past are never go far beyond the death of his parents at the hands of Humanis punks. He feels no reason for others to know more than that.

Appearance
Josiah isn't the most appealing figure in terms of appearance His wild black hair in a ponytail, grey-red eyes, scruffy beard, large tusks, and multiple scars gives him an appearance that some might call rugged, others disturbing. The scruffy face and scars go well the orc's powerful and lean build, honed after years of hard knocks and running the shadows

Picture of Slobbertooth

Whatabout
When Slobbertooth goes out on his own, he goes out for one of three purposes.
  • To try and dig up leads on the murderers of his parents, William and Zelda Willows, and practice his skill with his weapons
  • To get wasted in a dive bar with K and their favorite local scum
  • To kick back and and relax by kicking in some Humanis punks' heads.
His friends can occasionally drag him out to a club, but he isn't the best wingman. His coarse jokes, coarse appearance, and coarse temperament often drive away the men and women that are interested in his companions. A large, drunk, and foul tempered orc who is more than willing to flash a firearm tends to do that.

Whereabouts
Down in a couple of the famous dive bars, Shadowrunner hangouts, and other places in the Seattle barrens that would be dangerous if Slobbertooth didn't know the lay of the land after growing up there. Once a month he'll visit the burned down remains of his childhood home, and his parent's graves.

Whoabouts
Slobbertooth doesn't have a problem working and living with his teammates, but doesn't go out of his ways to do socialize with them. He's often the last to propose going to a bar, seeing a new trid film or any other group event, but he'll usually be quick to join in.

Slobbertooth occasionally communes with Wolf, but rarely in a formal way. Slobbertooth isn't much for meditation. It's normally extemporaneous conversation that happens while Slobbertooth is lying in bed, walking through the rain, or looking through the pockets of some unconscious Human supremacists.

His closest friend, sibling really, is Kazuya Armstrong (K). If Slobbertooth is out attacking Humanis punks, or hanging out in dive bars, it's usually with K. A picture of K

He'll occasionally contact Kazuya's fraternal twin sister Hiroko Armstrong. They're close, but nothing romantic has developed over the years. Slobbertooth isn't around enough for that. Still, K isn't allowed to know about that. Ever. A picture of Hiroko

After a run in with some Triad mages, Slobbertooth adopted one of their Tibetan Mastiffs who would have been abandoned by the deceased. She was named Li, but she is now called Zelda after Josiah's mother. A picture of Zelda

@Sabato: ...yknow if you think about it, if this group ever got into a Halloween run, we pretty much have Zer0, Salvatore, Brick, and Gaige/Maya/Moxxie.  Just sayin'...

@Group:

Okay, so for my understanding's sake and so we are clear, I'm gonna review the terms and conditions that just happened for this run.

Terms: Upon completion of this run, Sunkid has agreed to compensate our efforts by:
  • Granting us the gear found in the objective requested by us during our item-shopping, completely gratis
  • Additionally furnish a decent quality control rig (decided last minute)
  • Offer to purchase any equipment we recover during the operation not included in the objective at a rate of 25% retail

Conditions: Upon agreement of this run, we have agreed to abide by the following:
  • 100% of the objective will be recovered intact
  • None of the items not requested by us will be stolen
  • We do not backstab the Johnson, non-negotiable

I think that about covers it...did I miss something?

~~~~
Oh, I should give you guys a heads up.  My 5th year anniversary is coming up this week, so I will be out of touch from this Thursday (25th) to Saturday (27th).  If it's crucial, I trust you guys with Krestov completely :)

Only thing that should be added to that last point is that he'd be willing to purchase any gear we have that's not related to the mission, but we want to get rid of (extra weapons, old commlinks, etc.) at a rate of 25% their retail price.

Correct so far, but you should be aware that he is no ATM: So don't try to sell him some junk he can't reasonably sell himself and it has to be mission related - so no stealing cars on the side.
You also might have to wait a bit until he has sold the stuff so he has the necessary cash ;)

Can I find call logs on his phone? Even if the screen is cracked, if Spicey's cam was on, the data should be still there (or on some online host, where I could access it).

Yes, but as mentioned, nothing is indexed or organized so you need a matrix search to find what you want (ever searched for a youtube video in your cache? It's like this, only that the cache hasn't been cleaned in the last decade)

Edit:
To clarify: This data is not actually located on the link but saved in the matrix cloud. You just access it through the hacked commlink.

Slobbertooth would suggest to Torrent that the head of the hideout would probably be up on current events and would know that Scary Spice is dead

If Scary Spice actually used the same  Fake SIN for the past two years it's quite probable.But that guy seems to have been an experienced runner.
Anyway I could risk it.Unless there is some bad blood between Scary Spice and Moma Chau's management it shouldn't be that dangerous even if they see through my disguise.
