Yes, he is cool. A decker and a rigger. Some small things is that he is not social - so will find it hard to deal with NPCs (not catastrophe for this one).

Some tips:

Some suggestion I'd consider the quality practice practice practice probably for 'Hacking' as it gives you an easy +1 to the limit for hack on the fly. (note that it does not raise your sleaze so spotting you is still the same, but still it is just 2 karma).

Also note that he only has body 2 - so that he is quite fragile if you could fit on him Platelet factories would increase survival if you can afford them. (you do not have to have them at chargen - just suggesting - Wheely is fine as is). Also, if it works for you - a body of 3 can give you 1 more condition box.

Your Crossbow/Archery is so low that it's redundant with your drones.  Most of the opposition will have at least 6 Defense dice to dodge so you'll be better off with those points somewhere else.

You also have tons of ammo for your drones but no Explosive or APDS Rounds to deal with high-armored targets or spirits.  I'd recommend selling a bunch of your Normal and Gel Rounds to buy some.

An unmodified Armor Jacket is nice and all but with the prevalence of Electricity damage and Toxin-based attacks you could go for some specialized protection.  Just because your drones may be on the frontline doesn't mean you can't or won't get hit.  To give you an example for reference, a ninja once showed up at my character's apartment and nearly beat him in one-on-one combat.  Even though he was only a Professional Rating 4 Grunt and my character is a Combat Mage.

A few Trauma Patches and Rating 6 Medkits will help tremendously if you invest a few point into being a medic.

My character is not a fighter so if a ninja show up at my house I'm dead meat, Nonconductivity or not, even more if I give up on my only weapon skill. Hmm not sure what to do for that...

I don't plan to be a medic yet. By the time I do I will probably have the Nuyen to get a better Medkit anyway. Or I can use the Autodoc on the Van (if it's still there).

I will have to raise BOD first. By the way would you allow a character with 1 STR? Because that's the only place I can really get a point to raise BOD. I would keep my first 10 Karma to raise that asap.

The other tips are good to. I will try to tweak around. Maybe I can downgrade Control Rig to Rating 2 to free some Nuyen but it will heavily impact my driving pools.

1.  That 7 Attack pool doesn't really benefit your character in any meaningful way if you can barely even hit a street ganger or corp-sec guard.  Unless you plan on using stealth to line up at least 1 free shot before every fight.  Even then that's a very specific situation.

2.  The medic thing was merely a suggestion to use those free points with.  Anything Logic-based would be a good choice for Wheely.

3.  Sure, in fact my mage originally had 3 Body and 1 Strength.  I was forced to remake him because my laptop containing all of my sources books and chummer files was stolen.  And you don't have to raise it higher than that if you don't plan on him doing any heavy lifting or wearing heavier armor.

Ok I think I found the solution, reducing Control Rig to 2 free a lot of nuyen to correct things. I switched Archery for Pistols and added a Smartlink along with a Muscle Replacement (so I have 2 STR to start with) so I throw 11 dice with my guns.

Now my problem is that I would like to use some of these Nuyen to get a good Sensor Array on my car. The rulebook says that car can support up to Rating 7 Sensors but how do I exactly upgrade them? Do I just buy a Sensor Array Rating 7 and add all my sensor on them or do I need to buy a Sensor Upgrade? The problem of the Sensor Upgrade is that it is extremely expensive and limited to 6 so it goes against the CRB, plus I feel like it is mostly to give the vehicle a better automatic sensor while I just want a good sensor to use for my character.

Unless you're dead set on punching things to death you can drop 5 points of Unarmed and pump those into Blades and pick up a nice Pole Arm or Katana for some insanely high melee damage.

Picking up 1 point of Sneaking will sync up well with your Agility.

Fraid so. I'll minmax but it interferes with the character that I can't see him as the same guy I made in my head. And I saw a punching Troll decked with Bioware. He may pick up an axe or polearm as since his team died he feels responsible and may want to hone his skills to the best he can be... BUT... Thats in his intermediate past so it wouldn't make sense for him to have come to terms with his need for growth prior to arriving in Seattle. Therefore giving him that option would break character. His Unarmed and Intimitate reflect what he chose to train in thinking thats all he'd need to train in. The 1s in all his other stats relfect that he only wanted to train in the basics because he'd thought that his body and ware would see him through. Coincidently he couldn't have prevented the deaths and he has come to terms with that but he is still mourning the loss pretty damn hard and feels like he should have gone down with them. Thus the Big Regret. He is the sole survior. Hell you can call his 1 edge all thats leftover from the failed run if you like. So yeah put simply he has a long way to evolve into a new Passive. Might even get a new street name before all this is over.

It's cool.  You don't have to change him if it goes against the concept you have in mind.  Pole Arms and battleaxes are hard to conceal anyway and you'd only be getting a minor damage upgrade for a new problem all together.  I put the suggestion out just in case you hadn't considered it yet.  I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record but you should mod your Armor with some Nonconductivity and/or Chemical Protection.

You'd be surprised how often you'll get hit with an Acid/Electricity/Pollutant/Toxin based attack.

Bio: (TL;DR version)  After his sister Kei was killed by the roaming undead he descided he wasn't taking it laying down anymore.  However to fight the fiends he has taken out a loan from a yakuza loan shark and now desperately needs to make some extra money to start paying it back, luckily he has a certain set of skills...

Ayato had always been a loner.  He often felt disconnected from everyone else and this only got worse as he began his training in Kenjutsu.  He began to see people as inferior always looking for a tougher opponent to test himself on; only those who met his standards could he respect.  The only thing that had grounded him was his sister Kei.. She was the only person he could ever say he truly loved, not his parents, not his trainers.  Only she had been enough to keep him in the so called "civilized society" until one day she was ripped from his life at the hands of the undead plague.  After her death he realized he could only find people worthy enough to be his allies in the shadows and this provided the clearest opportunity to avenge his dear sister.  So he took out a loan to equip himself with the tools necessary to start his shadowrunning career and build the contacts and power base to accomplish his goal.[/spoiler]

Working on the changes and have decided to take a number of the recommendations to heart.  I should have the updated character sheet up in a couple of days.  I do have a couple of questions for the prospective group members.  I am definitely keeping the van and have left in the metahuman seat adjustments for a Troll and a Dwarf, just to maximize their comfort.  I was thinking of adding a weapon mount for the rigger to operate if present on board.  What would be good for you?

Wheely 2.0 is on the way, while finishing it let's see the others

@RaiderJoseph

Not much to say, that's a big troll hammer. You could probably drop Prototype Transhuman and/or Biocompatibility because you don't need Essence that badly.

Note that regular clothes are generally counted into the Lifestyle cost so you don't need to buy them separatly.

Mulcarn is completely right that you need some mod on your armor, you are in melee so you are more vulnerable than the others, even for a Troll.

With 14 STR you can get up to +16 Armor so it could be worth to try to raise that a bit. If you can manage to find the Nuyen the best armor you could get is : Sleeping Tiger (with Gel Packs) + Synergist Business Line Longcoat + Custom Ballistic Mask + Forearm Guards + PPP Legs Kit for a total of 17900 Nuyen and 22 Armor. Sleeping Tiger is particularly expensive so if it is too much stick with the Armor Jacket. Also consider having a Shield, you won't be able to get it with you everywhere but the +6 Armor is really nice when you need it.

@Ennui

Consider some specialization for your skills. For example you could reduce Edge to 2 and pick Hardware and Electronic Warfare with Karma which leaves you 4 Skill points for Specialization. Cybercombat could particularly benefit from it, probably Device if you want to brick a lot.

For Program Carrier you need to chose a program and you won't be able to change it. I recommend Hammer on it. You only have 3 Programs but 5 program slots (because of Virtual Machine) by the way. Some suggestions : Baby Monitor (you don't want GOD to come at you), Fork (Brick 2 devices at once), Wrapper (this thing is really amazing to hide stuff in plain sight in the Matrix), Configurator (it's cheap and it allows you to quickly go into Matrix combat mode), Signal Scrub (once again cheap and really useful if you have big noise to compensate).

@Stuttrboy

What with all those people that don't know how to avoid Debt?

The character is good. Check with your Ground Vehicle Operation (it's called Pilot Ground Craft btw), if you've raised it from 1 to 2 with Karma it should cost 4 not 3 and it's cheaper to raise Instruction from 0 to 1 for 2 Karma instead and use the Skill point on Pilot Ground Craft.

Like Ennui you could use some Specialization : Sneaking (Urban), Perception (Visual), Pilot Ground Craft (Bike) are classics.

Specializations are 1 point with initial skill points and 7 with karma correct?  I'm not sure how much I want to do that.  I will take a look though.
