Lt. Audrey Murphy – Lt. Murphy is the handler for the team. Her word is law, just don't mention that to her or you'll be working a week as a metter maid in a Z-zone.

She's often meets with the team at a coffee or food truck. She changes up the meet location and times to avoid patterns and tails. She's a very no nonsense orc. She's often dressed to blend in with the neighborhood. She's always carrying and she can handle herself well. She is definitely from the field and is no bean counter.

Connection 4, Loyalty 1


Desk Sergeant Jack Eltor - Sgt Eltor is you backup contact if you ever need to get to official channels and you can't get in contact with Lt. Murphy. He definitely is a bean counting office lackey. Many people loath the aged human man. He's also the man you file all your reports and expenses with. Talking to him will often be a labor of hate as he will remind you of that one time you forgot to file that one report that would make or break a case.

Connection 3, Loyalty 1

Jerry Mack- Jerry Mack is a Confidential Informant for KE. He's a fixer that was busted 6 months ago for dealing in drugs and weapons. The elf is a bit twitchy and is a Novacoke fiend. He claims he's been clean since his bust but that's highly doubtful.

Andrew Weber

[spoiler]
Name: Andrew Weber
Alias: Twitch
Race: Human
Sex: Male
Nationality: UCAS
Lifestyle: Low (Cramped, Difficult to Find) 2,000
Karma Spent: 0
Physical Description: A rather tall man (188cm, 95kg) with discreet scars over his body betraying his various operations. He has a certain air of being new, but at the same time the way he conducts himself seems to hint at great knowledge of certain areas of the shadows.
Personality/background Andrew Weber grew up in the typical middle-class family. He was always watching the old good cop, bad cop trids growing up and had an uncle in the LS force, so one could say he was pretty much groomed to be in the service. After graduating the academy in the top percentile of his class, he started to quickly make a name for himself. Things were easy it seemed for Andrew: follow the book and do what you can to make the streets safer. His partners (multiple because they somehow always seemed to request transfers) grew impatient of his moralizing and his “do-gooder” attitude. One day, while in the locker room after practice, Andrew was attacked by his colleagues and told to take his attitude down a notch or three. The attackers were all masked, but even if Andrew recognized a few of them, he decided that further alienating his coworkers was not the best course of action.

That taught Andrew to keep his attitude in check, but he still was strongly convicted that KE (he was quickly hired by them since he was relatively new to LS at the time the contract changed and thus had been judged fresh enough not to have any loyalty to the old regime) ought to serve and protect the city, just like the heroes of the trids he used to watch.

One day, Andrew busted a young troll for murder. This was a textbook open-and-shut case, with the young troll having been found on the scene of the crime with the murder weapon in hand (a long knife) and the victim’s blood smeared all over his clothes. The case not only drew the community’s attention, it got Andrew promoted to detective. KE took Andrew as their poster boy to get increased funding from the city, citing detective Weber’s dedication to his work as the last bastion of resistance between the people and the increased violence from the inner cities (code word for metahumanity).

It was 3 months into his new promotion that Andrew found undeniable evidence that the real murderer was not the troll but the poor girl’s jealous ex-boyfriend. Bringing this to the attention of his superiors, he was completely shut down as this was contract renegotiation time and his case was being used for an increase in the district’s budget. Brushed under the rug and ordered to keep his findings a secret, Andrew grew disillusioned with his career choice.

With the insistence he showed in trying to expose his new findings, his superiors decided it was best to get Andrew away and quieted. He was thus approached for undercover work, which he decided to jump feet first into. This, he reasoned, would be the perfect way to make a real difference in the community. And with this, there would be virtually no way he could be overruled: after all, Johnsons were known to be bad and always acting out of greed.


Andrew was assigned to Vice as a detective. His first case was about a shady pusher that had been caught in a part of town he shouldn't have been. The man had been carrying a heavy load (10 doses of Kamikaze) which Andrew knew was very unusual for anyone making a living from selling narcotics.

The case is technically closed but Andrew is certain the man isn't acting alone, even though he confessed to be a self-funded, one-man operation. Although he has no physical proof, his professional intuition tells him that there is more to this case.

Name: Abran Tenorio
Alias: Nobody likes him enough to have given him a nickname, but back before the troubles, people called him "Abe" sometimes.
Role: Physical Adept Infiltrator and shootist, with secondary face abilities
Age: 24
Race: Human
Sex: Male
Nationality: UCAS
Ethnicity: Afro-Hispanic

Physical Description: Mr. Tenorio is of average build and height, keeps his dark hair closely cropped to his scalp, and has penetrating brown eyes flecked with gold and green.  His look is decidedly clean-cut, his mannerisms practiced and precise, though his dialect betrays a bit of the working class areas of Renton, especially after a few drinks.

Personality and Background:  Abran Tenario is the oldest of three children, followed closely behind by a male/female set of twins when he was three, named Sebastian and Xitaly respectively.  His parents, Matilda and Jesus were both Ares employees with the SINs to match, and Abran grew up in Ares Public School No. 185 in the Black Diamond area of Renton.  His mother was a low-level coding specialist while his father was an efficiency expert in Ares' commercial products sales and acquisitions department.  Things took a turn for the worst when Abran was seventeen, and his father was caught embezzling Ares products to the Finnegan mafia, thinking that he could blame the losses on mismanagement by whichever company he was currently auditing.  This was the kind of treason that ruined families, not just individuals, and has Abran not awakened shortly before, he could surely have kissed his own professional ambitions goodbye. 

As it was, and with Matilda's strong encouragement, Abran left home to attend the University of Michigan, where he double majored in Applied Magical Studies and Criminal Justice.  He was burned as far as scholarships went, so Abran scrubbed toilets, became an RA, tutored where he could, and made every effort to prove his loyalty to Ares until he was able to sign a contract stipulating 10 years of service with Knights Errant in exchange for his tuition.  Upon graduating, Officer Tenario thought that he may have finally beaten the family stain, but upon being stationed back in Seattle he found that old prejudices die hard, and his family floundering.  His mom had, of course, been pulled off of any sensitive, and hence profitable, projects, instead working mostly as a debugger, and his brother and sister were unable to find work above the general janitorial level.  Tenario likewise found colleagues uneager to spend time with him, and partners repeatedly requested transfers.  More than once, he was called into his superiors office to hear that he "was no goddamn cop."  Still, his test scores were immaculate, and he reached detective after only three years.

Now, a pain-in-the-ass of his fellow knights, Abran Tenorio has been shipped off to a special investigation unit, his major glad to be rid of him, and his new Lieutenant uneasy about receiving him.  Such is the corporate life.  Maybe now he can prove to be the kind of cop he's known himself to be all along.

Concept: Billy Costigan of The Departed meets Jimmy McNulty of The Wire.  But, ya know, with magic and drek..

== Contacts ==
Bannockburn; Puyallup; Fixer (3, 1)
-- A well-dressed human who affects a Scottish accent -- which may or may not be real -- Bannockburn is a information broker and fixer who operates out of a noodle shop in northern Puyallup.  KE hasn't been able to dig up much on the man other than his location -- no SIN, no primary residence, etc. -- but Abran tapped him first thing after taking his new appointment, and Bannockburn helped him get his shiny new UCAS SIN.
Dr. King; Renton; Street Doc (3, 2)
-- Abran's known Dr. King for quite awhile now.  When Abran's mother's bank account was unfrozen after the trouble's, she spent the remainder of her savings and retirement shares to buy him a Cerebral Booster to help with his academics.  Abran has since gone back for all of his cyber and bioware, and knows that Dr. King has been known to do a little work on the side and off the books.  Dr. King is a dwarf male in his 50s.
Ed O'Malley; Renton; Bartender (3, 4)
-- Ed used to tend bar at a nice little lower-middle class joint in northern Renton, but a year or two back he caught some trouble during a holdup and took a bottle to the face, blinding him in his right eye and leaving a nasty scar above his right temple.  He was able to get some bargain basement cyberware to regain his sight, but the job was gone when he recovered, and on accounts of his looks, he had a hard time finding replacement work.  He's currently at the Renton Hole in the Wall, serving drinks to a much more dangerous class of clientele, but at least now he has the looks to match.  Ed has been a friendly ear since Abran was enlisted in KE, and since his move to the Hole in the Wall, he's made a few timely calls with solid tips to Abran.  Ed is a human in his mid-twenties. 
Jessica Steele; Puyallup; Armorer (4, 2)
-- Ah Miss Steele, a woman after Abran's own heart.  Abran's always had his suspicions that she keeps some of the less-than-legal options under the floor or some drek, but he's been buying and modifying his KE gear with her for years.  Their relationship is mostly professional, though Abran wouldn't mind taking her out to the range sometime, just to see what she can do.  Jessica is an elf in her early 20s.
Liga; Redmond; Prostitute (1, 2)
-- Abran busted Liga a few times for prostituting without a license and violating UCAS obscenity laws.  He always tried to do her a good turn, though, and once overlooked some deepweed she had on her, figuring she was just holding it for some deadbeat, and thinking that it'd be a shame for her to do any serious time.  When he was promoted to detective, Abran began tapping her for information about the goings on in the mean streets of Redmond.  She generally hangs out near Touristville, and while her info isn't usually high level, there's no telling what a chummer'll hear out on those streets.  Liga is an ork female who may be, barely, 20.
Raymond Odessa; Downtown; Blogger (2, 3)
-- Abran has never seen Raymond Odessa in the flesh, though they communicate fairly regularly on the trix.  Odessa runs an above-ground blog on the political happenings in Seattle, and a subscription only "underground" scream sheet covering the even-less-savory elements.  Age and race are unknown.
Sage Thompson; Tacoma; Fisherman (1, 1)
To hear Sage say it, his family's been fishing the waters of the sound since a hundred years before the awakening.  When the dredge is down and the fishing good, it's an honest living.  And when it's not, there are some less honest ways to make a living.  Still, a chummer's got to eat.  Bannockburn introduced Abran to Sage in case he ever needed a little smuggling done, or in case Sage ever needed a little muscle for some smuggling.  Sage is a dwarf with a short beard, long hair, and a nasal if easy laugh.  He looks to be in his forties.

Contacts:

Ivan Solchet (C5/L2)
Fence (Specialized on weapons and armor) - My primary go to guy for hardware and information on the Vory. Gets most of his stock from some Russian military base, but has pretty much everything to sell if I give him time to look. You’ll recognize him if you meet him. The guy is enormous. Not just fat, although he has some to spare, but just huge at about 2,30. And no, he is a human, at least as far as I know. If not, he probably went a bit too far on that Troll reduction surgery. Keeps a beard like Rasputin and could probably wrestle a hippogriff.

Glisting Pete (C2/L5)
Ghoul Talismonger - Pete buys and sells all things magic. His being a ghoul hasn’t slowed him down. Just got himself a pair of cyber eyes and a meat dryer in the basement. Quite a likable guy, likes to play cello and collects funny facts bottle caps. And he is a mage – if not a particular good one. But if need be, he can manage a preparation or two

Kurt Brown: (C1/L3)
Anarchist Bombmaker - Kurt is a hopeless revolutionary. Every week he has a new scheme to get rid of our corporation overlords. But he is a very clever bomb maker. Luckily so far he is also to cowardly to really go through with them. Usually he just blows them up somewhere in the wilds or sells his explosives to whoever finds his business address. He is a dwarf and quite short even for that. Always wears a beret like old Che but can’t get the beard right.

Sam Whats (C3/L3)
Barkeeper/Irish pub owner. She has a great taste in music and knows quite lot of people in Seattle. Sam is an Elf from old Ireland before it became the Elf-Nation. As far as I know she even was in the IRA before she changed. Red hair, great figure and green eyes.

Bonus Contacts:

Lt. Audrey Murphy (C4/L1)
Lt. Murphy is the handler for the team. Her word is law, just don't mention that to her or you'll be working a week as a metter maid in a Z-zone.
She's often meets with the team at a coffee or food truck. She changes up the meet location and times to avoid patterns and tails. She's a very no nonsense orc. She's often dressed to blend in with the neighborhood. She's always carrying and she can handle herself well. She is definitely from the field and is no bean counter.

Desk Sergeant Jack Eltor (C3/L1)
Sgt Eltor is you backup contact if you ever need to get to official channels and you can't get in contact with Lt. Murphy. He definitely is a bean counting office lackey. Many people loath the aged human man. He's also the man you file all your reports and expenses with. Talking to him will often be a labor of hate as he will remind you of that one time you forgot to file that one report that would make or break a case.

Jerry Mack (C4/L1)
Jerry Mack is a Confidential Informant for KE. He's a fixer that was busted 6 months ago for dealing in drugs and weapons. The elf is a bit twitchy and is a Novacoke fiend. He claims he's been clean since his bust but that's highly doubtful.


Backstory:
Maximilian "Gladius" Minièr, Psionic Mage

Max used to be a model officer: Disciplined, correct to a fault and highly reliable. As one of the few mages of the psionic tradition the department could even forgo the expenses of magical paraphernalia that came along with shamans and hermetics that KE usually employed. If there was any criticism it was his tendency not to participate in any after work activities with his fellow officers, spending instead all his free time with his wife Maria and his six year old son Markus.
All that changed on December the 24th 2074. It was meant as a message to the KE department Munich North: 27 officers were hit simultaneously with drive by shootings, molotov cocktails through windows, poisoned sodas, exploding fruit baskets and home invasions. The message came from the Vory and it said: Stay out of our business.
Colleagues said Max was one of the lucky ones - after all the attackers didn't kill him. They didn't even destroy much of his possessions. They merely gassed his flat with Neurostun... and abducted his son.

Afterwards, nothing made sense anymore. After his sick leave was used up he returned to work where he functioned - barely, mostly thanks to the KE sponsored mood chips and over the counter anti-depression medication. His performance deteriorated. Maria likewise became grief struck, refusing to leave the house, slowly wasting away.

This could have ended badly for both if not after two months of no news about who was behind the hit, KE UCAS finally found a solid lead: An informant in Seattle had caught a piece of a conversation indicating that a Russian ex-Spetznaz had been responsible for the attack and also was the one who abducted the children of two KE officers. The informant was found out shortly afterwards and executed, but not before he could at least give some identifying elements on the hitman: A large human with a tattoo of a weeping Madonna on his back, pierced by two crossed Cossack sabers.

This was the moment Max found a new purpose: Find the man and bring him to justice - or if that wasn't possible - avenge his son. Max asked for a transfer to KE Seattle. It took him nearly a year and all the contacts and favors he had accumulated in 10 years of service and then some, but he got his transfer. Again his prodigious talents tipped the balance for his transfer. Maria was less then thrilled at the prospect of moving to Seattle, but at the same time relished the chance to leave their home and the painful memories associated with it.

Now Max and Maria have found a small flat, subsidized by KE and started to rebuild a life, finding new friends and integrating with the new colleagues.
All that is a facade on Max' part. Appearing sane and stable is the only way he could get admitted to the Undercover Programm. A few uppers here, a few downers there and he doesn't stand out... provided he can keep his schedule. But at least now his confidence is back: Once again he can create mental constructs that can comb the city for any trace of his son and the Russian.
Max worries a bit about Maria though, she is once again showing signs of depression and it more and more looks like she is blaming him for all that happened. Not an ideal situation for an undercover cop, but then nothing will be ideal until Max has found what he is looking for...

Once I get a look at rednblack's character sheet I will start the IC post. I think you'll enjoy the first run. To celebrate the holiday it has a Halloween twist.

Char sheet updated.  I went ahead and took an Initiation with Adept Centering. 

Contacts will be more fleshed out tomorrow, but what's listed should give you what you need to work with, @Ravensoracle.  Sorry to hold things up.

Let's see what Abe knows about the Halloweeners that can't just be picked up on a matrix search.  He has: INT (4) + Gangs (2) = 6 dice.
Gangs: 6d6t5 4
Holy drek balls.  Maybe he does know something about this.

I'm also going to roll Shadow Communities (Rumors) to see if anything he's maybe heard about jobs coming up would match what Murphy's saying.  He has: INT (4) + Shadow Community (2) + Rumors Spec (2) = 8 dice.
Shadow Community: 8d6t5 3

There's been a major change in leadership among the Halloweeners. You don't know much about who it is but you've heard the guy is a real hardass and is making some major changes to the organization. Gang Lt's are being killed and replaced. Rumors are that they are planning something but it is being kept only to a few of the higher ups.

The dust-up in leadership has also led to some dispute with the Halloweeners and Ancients fighting over different areas of the Redmond Barrens.

Someone has been hitting some gasoline tanker trucks. hat may be unrelated but if someone wanted the city to burn, a handful of tankers of gasoline would be a start.

---------

As to who is going to be in charge. I am going to ask who wants to be the Senior Detective? I know that leaves Hydroravens character out since he'a a rookie.

I think Max is the logical choice. High powered mages don't come cheap, even if he isn't a Hermetic. Abran probably doesn't have the social capital for any advancements on the leadership front.

Yeah, that makes sense to me. Abran and Twitch's stories pretty much make him the default choice ;)

Contacts are fleshed out.

As for gear, are we allowed to run with F rated weapons and accessories?  If so, I'd like to think about getting a Suppressor.

I'd say yes to the suppressor. Something like kamikaze might be frowned upon though. So it is a best judgment thing.
