Name: SlowDeck
MetaType: Human
Age: 20s.
Awakened: Claims not to be.

Known Information: SlowDeck claims to be a decker, and there are some who attest to his skill. Particularly in combining biofeedback with use of building holographic/AR systems and customized agents that look exactly like hermetic spirits... even when the building doesn't have any holographic or AR systems and even when his "custom attack displays" that look like fireballs actually set things, or people, on fire. Strangely, the only icon that has ever been found for him on the Matrix is that generated by his commlink; he claims he's that good at Matrix stealth.

SlowDeck is rumored to be a hermetic mage using a fake cyberdeck and some actual knowledge about hacking to fool his opponents, and more than one new teammate, into thinking he's a decker.

Gender: Female
Age: end 20s, early 30s (difficult to tell with elves)

Alias: Pizza Boy
Metatype:  Orc
Sex: Male
Age: 27
Known Info: A new soul to the shadowrunning business, this guy is a Flatcap Go-Ganger who after getting in an unfortunate car accident, got tired of waiting to race with the big boys and hit the shadows instead. Hasn't gotten much work yet, but none of the teams he's worked with have complained; reviews say he's quick on his feet and quicker with his hands. The lack of any stereotypical violent orc outbursts also is a nice touch to his resume.
Rumours:
  • He was one of the racers in last years "Speed Street" trideo series that tanked after the race rigging scandal.
  • He's a Vory agent, trying to finish off what the Russians thought they killed in New York.
  • He's in debt to some mysterious power broker.
  • Got his alias from some Halloweeners making fun of him when he was carrying a hot pizza on his back in one of those delivery bags.

Alias: answer.me.this (shortened to Answers more often than not)
Metatype: Human
Gender: Male
Age: Late-20ís
Known Info:
- Does decker duty with a crew out of the Minneapolis metroplex.  Noted for doing fast, efficient (though generally sloppy) Matrix work (it works, but it isnít winning any points for style).
- Has had severe cyberwork done including both legs, his left arm up to the bicep, both eyes, and various other changes (see rumors).
- Answers is a notable sleazy pervert.  Heís frequented and hosted various pornography-centric nodes over the years.  If there is a kink, he probably has a nice selection of recommendations for those looking for a sampling.  His subtle and not-so-subtle interlude with women has gotten him into trouble more than a few times.  These have recently tapered down a noticeable amount.
Rumors:
- Answers is a persona non gratis at several Minneapolis area bunraku parlors and hookers.  While most involved are fairly tight lipped about it, rumor has it has something to do with some extreme body modifications.
- Itís rumored that some of his early work in the shadows may have involved Tamanous.

Alias: Ruthless ("Ruth")
Metatype: Human
Gender: Female
Age: 20 (Estimated)
Awakened: Yes (Adept)
Known Info:
-Born and raised in the Chicago Containment Zone, she still lives and works in the city.
-She has ties to the Orphanage and to the Chicago Anarchist Collective.
-A bloodrunner (medical courier) for the Black Crescent, she's recently started running the shadows. Feedback is decent, just don't ask her to talk to anyone.
-Her skillset includes moving fast and quiet, shooting straight and knowing how to use a medkit even when the autodoc shorts out. She's also good to know if if you just need someone to show you around Chi-Town, even the zone itself if your jing is good.
-She's an albino and tends to wear a thick, concealing grey coat with a hood. Her face is usually hidden by a pair of bulky goggles (wired, how retro) and a respirator when outdoors.
-Most of the things she owns are old throwbacks. Her outdated commlink is a recent acquisition, but she's been getting good use out of it.
Rumours:
-Ruth Less is her real name. She's not particularly imaginative.
-She's actually a vampire. Seriously, she's awakened, pale, has red eyes and hates sunlight. Obviously a vampire.
-She's actually a toxic adept. I hear Mad Dog is one of the toxic mentor spirits and she's always saying how Dog talks to her...
-She's actually a mantis free spirit. It's why she has such a hate-on for the rest of the bugs and we all know anyone who's awakened around here eventually signs on with the bugs.
-At the very least, she has to be Twisted somehow. No one can grow up in that sort of hellhole and come out unchanged.
-She's not even awakened, she just has some really discrete wires. That's why she's not Twisted.
-She's actually a very low profile cyberzombie. Secret corp black project gone rogue. Her whole life history is made up, no one could get that much 'ware in the zone.
-She is awakened, but she's on the way of the burnout from all the 'ware. Come on people, I've seen her on the astral and she's definitely awakened. 'Till she adds more chrome anyway.
-I once saw her outrun a car. Razorgirl is fast, man.
-She's a carrier for HMHVV. You can tell, because she always calls it MVV instead.
-She works for Tamanous occasionally. All that running around the zone carrying organs and drek, who could tell where it's going and who's paying her.
-Seriously, magical badass working for the CAC? Obviously part of the Black Star.



Name: Mr. Fletcher
Metatype: Ork
Gender: Male
Known Info:
-An established shadowrunner with a reputation for being discrete and professional.
-Currently working out of Chicago.
-Is apparently good at staying anonymous.
-French, or possibly french-canadian, with a noticeable accent when he's off the clock.
Rumours:
-Rumour has it he's acting as a mentor of sorts to Ruthless.
-Prefers improvised weapons to guns. Probably an Adept.

Alias:  Kid AudiBAAL

Known info:  Kid AudiBAAl is a troll mage from out of town.  He's only been in Seattle for a few months.  He works in an occult bookstore/talismongering shop and lives in the apartment above it.  Though he's a mage he keeps away from conjuring spirits when he can.  Preferring straight spellcasting, and working on magical formulae and a side business of enchanting.  He's still rather young, with his age estimated to be between 18 and 20, but it's hard to tell on a troll.  He has been on a few runs, with runners describing him as having a few specific rules.  Such as not taking wetwork runs unless the target is suitably bad.  In short there're more unknowns about the kid than known's. 

Rumors:  It's said he got the handle of AudiBAAL when he used a Soundwave spell to wipe a whole room of guards in one go.
He's often seen inquiring about Saeder-Krupp and their R&D departments. 
Word has it from a few mages out East that the kid was actually a student at MIT&T but goblinized during some conjuration final.  Got a lot of kids hurt as some fire spirits got free.
He'll enchant anything as long as you can give him information about Saeder-Krupp.
He once strode into a ganger den to rescue a fellow runner, and came out with the runner, unharmed, and covered in ganger blood.
It's said that he's some sort of spell formulae genius and someone stole one of his formulas.
Someone said it was a girlfriend of his that stole it.  Others say that it was a boyfriend.

Alias: Gunspell

Known Info: An Elven Mystic Adept, born in Australia.  Fairly new but not entirely green in the runner scene, she's done some operation in Hong Kong, but is new to the Seattle scene- frankly a bit too green to make a significant name for herself, although some digging will reveal she's done particularly well with bodyguard runs.  She left Hong Kong rather suddenly, though. 

Rumors: While there's not much floating around, rumor says the reason she left Hong Kong was because she got one of the Triads angry at her somehow.
