Maybe move two points from agility to reaction? Your agility is very high but 4d to dodge attacks seems...low... Especially considering that in full defense, you're at 8d. If you're targeted, there's a good chance you're hit (unless we're fighting burnout addicts, but somehow I don't think that will be the case...)
Good thing is that in contrast my own character doesn't seem so bad in terms of defense, we'll just have to pair up, that way we may really have to fight addicts to keep the opposition at our level :p

Oh and there's Kuirem waiting for an answer, did his post went unnoticed?

@Jack_Spade

As a medic he has his... sources.

@Ennui

You could reduce Body and Willpower to 3 to increase Reaction and Intuition. Body/Willpower are better at odd numbers because that's where you got an extra box on your condition monitors.

@Ennui

I'd lower Body by 3 and Willpower by 1.  Those free points could be used to raise Intuition and maybe Logic to boost those decking skills.

@Jack

Could be worse, you could always get the Seven-7 gas trap in the sewers.  Kinda reminds me of playing Fallout New Vegas and on the hardest setting.

@Gilga

Having characters with their own personal goals and interests are fine as long as they don't conflict with one another.  Else the game world starts burning down, one fireball at a time.  ;)

Better, reminds me sorta like Kynos.  Just a less defensive and more offensive oriented version.  She'd be a decent assassin and spirit slayer.

that's the basic idea, she's a wash out of Tir Special forces.  I'm still working on the backstory.

... ??? ;D  Gilga is going to have a lot of fun tormenting her.  The character looks fine, an AMAZING Face with some great defensive capabilities in the form of your dragon powers.  You should have more contacts with a charisma that high.  Be prepared for Background Count making life very difficult for her though.

Yeah, I'm looking at how I can add the Heightened Concern power in there to alleviate the BGC issue. The QI focus has to disappear for example, in the BGC it won't activate.
As for the contacts... Sure. Can I has your karma? :D
There are more than 150 points on the drake side, so there were many sacrifices... And contacts were some of them. One way to explain this is that she just got to Seattle and didn't have the time to know many people.

Expect a BGC of 1 in most parts of Seattle, and a 2 in the Barrens for example.  With places like Glow City to be between 3-6 depending on how close you get to the nuclear reactors.  (Not that you, or anyone for that matter will be sojourning there anytime soon)  The Qi focus can be dropped entirely due to the above reasons.

@Raiderjoseph

They are.  We had one way, way back when the campaign first started.  But he left shortly after it all started.  Personally I consider them to be inferior deckers in all but one aspect (Unless thay have been errated recently) but if you want to try one out then go ahead.

@Kuirem

I'm still examining Band Aid and I don't have much of an opinion about him yet.  He looks well made on first glance.

Passive is a Troll Vatjob who managed to piss off Herr Brackhaus on a run gone wrong. He had to hide. Fast. And he had to go somewhere absolutely NO ONE would think to look for him. Hence the Zombie Apocolypse. So he threw away everything and managed to get to Seattle. He needs to build a new career and survive. His Bioware combined with his Dermal enhancement make him look bigger then the average Troll. Hence the distinctive style. He is a rather chill guy who is a bit sleepy most of the time. But he is nice enough when you give him a beer and/or a quiet place to rest. Doesn't talk much either.

What do you think?

Edit: Yes I know. Made revisions.

One punch troll, welcome.

If you are going with that I strongly suggest striking callus. for easy +2 to unarmed damage.
(not that you lack any).  If it is not for RP reasons, orthskin is usually better than dermal plating. Especially as it gives you upgrades (like shark skin that gives +1 reach for unarmed).
 

Also, you should be able to get a lot of millage from thrown weapons.

Did you take born rich or bio-compatibility?

Finally, not a 'thing' - though but I would try to go for troll A for 6 edge.
