Who said running the shadows was easy? Dodging bullets, swords, spirits, and spells just to name a few. Elves, Dwarves, Trolls, even the occasional Dragon can make any Shadowrun go bad.

PostSubject: Gala's Characters   Sun Jan 31, 2010 7:55 am

A little background on me first. Gala is short for Galanodel, which was the name of my first character ever played. She was a female Elf Wizard in a D&D 2.0 game, during a D&D 2.0 New Release Party; a very very long time ago.
With that character, and that night, I earned myself some new friends for a table-top session on Sunday evenings in Brooklyn, NY. Galanodel survived that evening, and many subsequent adventures, gaining levels and power, until she had maxed out so to speak at level 20. Several years later, the "High Level Campaign" rules were released for D&D, and the group as a unit opted to break out the retired characters, write a short backstory on what they had been doing, and how their survival had fared. We continued the campaign through level 30, when the DM at the time decided that he was willing and interested in expanding beyond the written rules. We took Galanodel and her team (it was her team by this time) through higher levels, until at some point the DM ruled that Galanodel was powerful enough, with the help of her team, and her prodigious following, to attempt to ascend to Demi-God status.
During the process, Galanodel's long lost brother showed up and interfered (yes, he was well represented in their backstory, and he had always been as black as night). The battle for the good of the world that followed was epic by every meaning. The completion of that battle, between Galanodel, her brother, her followers and his, was only concluded when Galanodel committed herself to a suicide mission, she ended her life and in the process ended his. Interestingly, the DM ruled that the success of the mission was enough to complete her ascendancy, and Galanodel arose to take her place among the gods of the world. Thus ended a 5-year long campaign.
"Gala" was the short name that her close friends and family called her.

Since the beginning with Galanodel I have tried out nearly every table top game ever invented. My two favorites are Shadowrun and D&D, in that order. In general, I prefer not to bother with any of the other table top games, as they seem to me to be poor replicas of the real thing, at best. Just my opinion, you are all welcome to formulate your own as well. Further, I have played every imaginable character concept in nearly every possible setting. I even once played in an 8-player campaign where we rotated characters each game session (which was an interesting thing to do, getting in to character). I have also played with props, and with DMs who are more than willing to simulate the goings on of the in-game. You may actually have to duck when an arrow flies at your character!
That being said, my favorite character concepts usually end up looking like that first Elven Wizard, in whatever game I play. However, I thoroughly enjoy playing, and am capable and willing to put together nearly any character concept, and play it to it's logical conclusions.
Enjoy looking over the characters that I have put together for this PBP Forum!

PostSubject: Ashe Galanodel   Sun Jan 31, 2010 8:20 am

Female Elf Shaman
Attributes:
Body:2 | Agility:2 | Reaction:4 | Strength:1 | Charisma:7 | Intuition:5 | Logic:2 | Willpower:5
Edge:5 | Essence:6 | Initiative:6 | Astral Initiative:10 | Magic: 6

Description:
Ashe is always impeccably dressed. She likes her clothing, takes care of it, and it shows. Among friends, her "dressed down" look is frequently somewhat over dressed for the occasion. But she is quite satisfied with that.
Ashe has dark green eyes. On any human, or most Metahumans, the colors would denote colored contacts, and would look out of place. Among Elves, however, the color can be found naturally, if rarely. Her hair is a light brown, otherwise known as a nut-brown. She is a stunning woman, very well put together. Her mannerisms, and dress, generally add to, rather than detracting from, that impressive natural beauty. She is kind, thoughtful, and careful with what she says, and does the best she can at matching her spoken word and style to her surroundings and companions.

Contacts: (L/C)
Talismonger (1/3) - Lou. Human Talismonger, owns a very small shop in one of the C districts of Seattle. The "Back Room" has all the good stuff...
Bartender (2/2) - Barney. Ashe's favorite bar, requires a membership - or guest of member, "Unsung Glories" in downtown, high class. Ashe earns her continued membership by inviting Janette to occasional events, and Janette brings along her friends.
Fixer (2/5) - Sherri Miani. Retired runner, human, now fixer. Usually has time to meet up with Ashe, as they have earned money together in the past.
Simsense Star (3/4) - Janette Sutanto. Has known Ashe for a long time, human, partier, they love to gossip together.

Background:
Temperament - Ashe is a genuinely friendly person. She enjoys other people's company, and loves it when she is able to assist someone completing a goal of theirs. She will go out of the way to help a friend, or even a trusted acquaintance. In that respect, she is exceedingly loyal.
When meeting people, Ashe often comes off as being overly polite. She is hyper-aware of her etiquette at all times, and strives to make certain than every situation is as comfortable as possible for all parties. To this end, she understands but dislikes necessary conflicts, and tries to avoid them when possible.

Ashe started out in the Corporate World, just like any "self-respecting" person, or that is what "They" would have you believe. Due to her general distaste for conflict, she was able to "rise in the ranks" quite quickly. She was a competent worker, and more than capable at doing most jobs, but her capacity to excel in the corporate environment stemmed from her true strengths: Politics. Or, not Politics, per say, but making people feel good about themselves, and about her.
After a fairly successful, but short by elven standards, career, Ashe was faced with a major "Crossroads." She was forced to make an uncomfortable decision. Her employer, at the time, had managed to put himself in a position of deniability, and was attempting to use his short-lived power to press Ashe into accepting his -physical- advances. Needless to say, she was repulsed, and her choice, clearly, was to take her leave from the company. Interestingly, that resulted in an unofficial “Blacklisting” for a short time, during which she was unable to seek employment from any of the other game in town.
Of course, as luck would have it, she had not exactly planned ahead for unemployment, and found herself in a position without income, but with a standard of living which required upkeep. Ashe found herself becoming involved in “The Shadows” in an attempt to pay her bills. By the time her “Blacklisting” had ended, she was quite satisfied with the much more glamorous, much more free, life which she had discovered entirely by accident.

These days, Ashe lives a much more quiet life than the one she led in The Corporate World, but it is her life. She loves it, and will fight to keep it.

PostSubject: Shan Jah - "I can get anywhere!"   Tue Feb 02, 2010 8:25 am

Female Eagle Shapeshifter Adept
Updated for "Into Shadow" campaign

Description:
Shan is remeniscent of a teenager. She seems to be perfectly comfortable in nearly any situation in her tight fitting sweat pants and a black tee shirt. When she is carrying her "special briefcase" (which is almost always) she is also, usually, wearing her armored trench.
Her voice is smooth and sweet, but her mannerisms are quite out of sorts. She clearly has had little to no training in any sort of etiquette. This is evidenced by her strange interpretations of every-day idioms. Sometimes it seems like she just gets them wrong on purpose, but after you get to know her, it becomes clear that she simply mis-translated them.
She is pretty, in a "girl next door" kind of way. Her hair matches the plumage coloring of a Golden Eagle; mostly brown (perhaps "Mousy") but streaked with motes of gold and red. Likely there is more gold than red - not that anyone would care... Her eyes are equally astounding: There is no "white" so to speak. The "whites" of her eyes are brown, like her hair, while the Irises stand out even more than they would have otherwise as mostly gold, but like her hair, flecked with green and red streaks. They almost appear to be golden discs, suspended from the trunk of a tree. And just as astonishing as her eyes and hair, her skin has the slightest sheen of gold about it; it almost glints in the sunlight with the metallic sheen. The entire effect is as though her Eagle heritage has carried over in to her Metahuman body.

Contacts: (L/C)
Fixer (1/3) - Jimmy; A "youngling" fixer who is an active runner, but looking to retire into the life of a fixer. He is a Face, and is more than capable of keeping up his contacts.

Background:
Temperament - Shan Jah enjoys the finer things in life. There are few things out there that are more joyous to her than sitting on a branch at the top of the rockies, and watching the sun come up on a winter day. A close second would be a fresh field mouse from one of the mountain valleys. It is particularly enjoyable after soaring, effortlessly for miles, waiting for just the right moment, and just the right mouse, to swoop down and pounce. Even more exciting is those times when the mouse has no idea she's coming, the silence of her wings keeping her approach completely outside the mouse's capacity to respond.
Beyond that, Shan's human temperament is somewhat beyond her capacity to describe it. The humanity that she feels while in her human body is strange, and uncomfortable - and as such, she often chooses to spend her time among her own kind, only venturing in to the metahuman society when she must. Shan keeps her contact with Jimmy up, just to make certain that she, and her kind, always have a steady flow of metahuman money to use for whatever it is that they need.

Shan does not entirely understand human society. She is not enamored on the idea of "Clothes," although is starting to appreciate the "accessorizing" capacity that clothing provides. There are a multitude of opportunities for self expression that are just so foreign, and delightful, even if they are extremely non-functional. Along with that, she has never really come to understand the difference between "Personal Space" and territory. She understands territory, but "Personal Space" is a very strange idea.
Shan maintains her clothing and equipment in high-up spaces in abandoned buildings and warehouses. She spends very little time actually in metahuman society, preferring to return to her native lands when she is not working. She carries with her only her commlink, allowing her communication when necessary.
While she is here, among the metahumans, her mission is to raise money, and awareness, for the protection of her native lands. She has come to understand that a goal like that is most easilly achieved through wealth. If she can manage to get rich, she should be able to purchase, or bribe, her way into protection for her native lands. She is a runner, because that is the simplest way for her to earn money, and be accepted, so that her home lands will stay as near pristine as they are now.

PostSubject: Auburn   Sat Feb 06, 2010 11:14 pm

Female Elf Shaman
New Character; 400 BP (Standard)

Description:
Auburn is confident and rash, bordering on arrogant. Her comments are always tongue in cheek, and her sarcasm is deeply dry. She is quite playful, in a serious sort of way, and appreciates the return insults.
Looking at Auburn, she is quite attractive. Above average for an Elf, and quite beautiful by human standards. She is somewhat... off... however, and even more so when you get to know her. She always dresses in BDUs (Battle Dress Uniform, or Army Camouflage), except when required otherwise. She slouches in her chair, and is far more likely to share a bottle of beer with a grizzled old soldier in a smokey bar off the strip as she is to be seated at a proper restaurant in polite company.

Contacts: (L/C)
Fixer (2/3) - Marie. The quintessential "Heavy Hitter" of a Fixer. She knows the contacts needed to get jobs, and keep her people busy. She is enough "under the radar" to keep herself and her people off the hit lists of the major Johnsons. She is a good business contact, and utterly uninterested in a personal relationship with her people.
Simsense Star (3/4) - Jamie. The basic BFF... The girl-friend that every modern girl needs to have. Auburn has lost contact with ALL of her former life, except with Jamie. Jamie doesn't, entirely, approve of Auburn's recent life, but they are close enough for Jamie to forgive, as the law does not, the indescretions of her recent past.


Background:
Auburn is very familiar with the benefits, and the negatives, of being a Metahuman. Auburn was born just before the first Goblinization, and understands just exactly how deeply the need to racially judge other beings runs in humanity. She was in Chicago during the burning of the loop, and watched while the UCAS military isolated, and then nuked, the Bug Spirits. These experiences were traumatizing to Auburn, and led her to a period of self-question, and self-discovery. During this period, she was estranged from her former colleagues, her job, and her previous family. Following her self-discovery, Auburn left her former life as an upstanding citizen, where her magical capacity was left nearly dormant in her attempt to "blend in". She headed north into the Native American Nations, and attempted to start to understand the magical side of her existence. She soon discovered that she had been living only a partial life, ignoring the natural, and the magical, sides of her existence. She was somewhat ashamed, and channeled that shame into anger. Anger at the governments and corporations who had sponsored, and perpetuated, the metahuman racial divides. More importantly even, than that, Auburn realized how much the "technologisation" of the world was damaging the spirit of Earth, of life. She became consumed with her belief that Corporations, and the Governments who allowed them to become as they are, were the representation of evil in this world. She pursued this to it's logical conclusion, as an "Eco-Terrorist" of sorts, causing unnecessary strife and pain in the lives of relatively innocent people.
After several years of this, during which she was "made" by the UCAS Military, and put on the watch-list, Auburn was confronted by a tribal leader, and shaman of some repute and power, and shown the error in her ways. She was asked to re-enter the world, and earn a position in the world as it is today. "You cannot change the past, Auburn, and only by becoming a part of the future can you hope to have any affect on it." He said to her, pointing out to her that the true path to harmonious life is not by senseless and needless destruction, but by assimilation, and guidance. Auburn "repented" her eco-terrorism, and realized that the shaman had been correct. She returned to Chicago, now a criminal, and nearly without a friend, and decided to begin to lead a life of relative honesty. Shadowrunning, now, provides for Auburn the capacity to interact with humanity at large, and to attempt to assimilate herself back into society. She has realized that the path to an assimilated natural world, is by bringing nature to her colleagues, and encouraging them to live a natural life.
Thanks to Jamie, Auburn's best friend, she was able to meet up, and build a business relationship, with Marie. Marie, taking somewhat better care of Auburn than is strictly necessary, has helped her get a few start-up jobs, and helped her get settled in Chicago. After the first few jobs, Marie was well satisfied with Auburn's effectiveness, and has elected to keep her on her "short list" of 'runners to call.
Auburn maintains contact with her Native American Nations contacts, but has resolved never to call upon them for anything other than personal contact. As a result, Auburn's sole contact with them is direct, and never using technology.

PostSubject: Jack   Tue Feb 16, 2010 3:49 pm

Street Name: Jack
Female Ork Ninja
New Character; 400 BP (Standard)

Description:
Jack is slightly short for an orc, and slim, rather than the standard "stocky" look that Orks seem to have settled in to.
She would be quite good looking, for an Ork, except for the heavy scarring she has on her face, arms, and hands. She is clearly "worse for the wear" of her years as an assassin; although there is definitely something to be said for surviving at all.
She has brown eyes and brown hair. Both mostly a non-descript, unexciting shade. She wears her hair short-cropped, and it almost looks as though she cuts it herself. Usually it is spiked up with gel, making her look unobtrusively "punkish".

Attributes:
Body:6 | Agility:5 | Reaction:5 | Strength:3 | Charisma:2 | Intuition:5 | Logic:2 | Willpower:4
Edge:1 | Essence:6 | Initiative:10 | Magic: 5

Contacts: (L/C)
-NONE-

Background:
Jack is short for Jacqueline.

Temperance: Jack is an extremely quiet person. She does not exude the "dangerous" feel, as would be expected from an escaped ninja. She is instead self-assured, careful, and thoughtful. She seems to pay close attention to the people with whom she is working. She treats them like there is no one else in the room, at all times.

Jack, a classically trained Ninja, is now an "assassin for hire" so to speak. She grew up living in a Ninja clan, being trained from her first memories, in self discipline, stealth, and warefare, including assissinations.
Jack completed her adolescence among her Ninja captors before her parents were able to locate her. In a desperate attempt to "save" her from the clan, her parents were captured by the gate guards. They were brought in to the compound, and before Jack's eyes, were "sacrificed" for Jack's own good. At least, that is what she was told. She escaped that evening.
It wasn't the sorrow that stole her from the camp at dusk, nor the pain that they had caused her parents. It was the horror at the willingness of the clan to butcher someone so obviously important, to someone out there, right in front of Jack's eyes in an attempt to forestall an escape from her. More than that, though, is that if they were so afraid of Jack escaping, then why give her such cause to contemplate it? Jack realized that there was a world out there to explore, and that her future did not have to be controlled by the Enclave.

Since that time, Jack has participated in the world she now calls "The Shadows", living as she was taught to live, and earning a respectable income doing just that. Since she has fled the clan, she has uncovered talents within her that would likely have lain dormant under the Clan's guidance. She is now more deadly than she could ever have hoped to be among her old brethren.

Street Name: Breaker
Female Dryad Adept Face
Attributes:
Body:3 | Agility:5 | Reaction:1(5) | Strength:1 | Charisma:7 | Intuition:5 | Logic:2 | Willpower:2
Edge:5 | Essence:6 | Initiative:10 | Astral Initiative:10 | Magic: 5

Description:
Breaker considers herself a "Modern" elf. She prefers to see herself on the "Hip" side of things. To that end, she will always attempt, where possible, to insert the Hip side of fashion in to her wardrobe choices. However, when "Conservative" is called for, Breaker knows better than most how to be precisely within the boundaries of fashion, and decorum.
Breaker is even good looking for an Elf. From her movements and the way her voice sounds when she speaks, it would be far more appropriate to consider her one of the Elven close cousins: The Dryad. She has a strikingly similar quality about her.

Ashe is always impeccably dressed. She likes her clothing, takes care of it, and it shows. Among friends, her "dressed down" look is frequently somewhat over dressed for the occasion. But she is quite satisfied with that.
Ashe has dark green eyes. On any human, or most Metahumans, the colors would denote colored contacts, and would look out of place. Among Elves, however, the color can be found naturally, if rarely. Her hair is a light brown, otherwise known as a nut-brown. She is a stunning woman, very well put together. Her mannerisms, and dress, generally add to, rather than detracting from, that impressive natural beauty. She is kind, thoughtful, and careful with what she says, and does the best she can at matching her spoken word and style to her surroundings and companions.

Background:
Temperament - Ashe is a genuinely friendly person. She enjoys other people's company, and loves it when she is able to assist someone completing a goal of theirs. She will go out of the way to help a friend, or even a trusted acquaintance. In that respect, she is exceedingly loyal.
When meeting people, Ashe often comes off as being overly polite. She is hyper-aware of her etiquette at all times, and strives to make certain than every situation is as comfortable as possible for all parties. To this end, she understands but dislikes necessary conflicts, and tries to avoid them when possible.

Ashe started out in the Corporate World, just like any "self-respecting" person, or that is what "They" would have you believe. Due to her general distaste for conflict, she was able to "rise in the ranks" quite quickly. She was a competent worker, and more than capable at doing most jobs, but her capacity to excel in the corporate environment stemmed from her true strengths: Politics. Or, not Politics, per say, but making people feel good about themselves, and about her.
After a fairly successful, but short by elven standards, career, Ashe was faced with a major "Crossroads." She was forced to make an uncomfortable decision. Her employer, at the time, had managed to put himself in a position of deniability, and was attempting to use his short-lived power to press Ashe into accepting his -physical- advances. Needless to say, she was repulsed, and her choice, clearly, was to take her leave from the company. Interestingly, that resulted in an unofficial “Blacklisting” for a short time, during which she was unable to seek employment from any of the other game in town.
Of course, as luck would have it, she had not exactly planned ahead for unemployment, and found herself in a position without income, but with a standard of living which required upkeep. Ashe found herself becoming involved in “The Shadows” in an attempt to pay her bills. By the time her “Blacklisting” had ended, she was quite satisfied with the much more glamorous, much more free, life which she had discovered entirely by accident.

These days, Ashe lives a much more quiet life than the one she led in The Corporate World, but it is her life. She loves it, and will fight to keep it.

Description:
Jazz is small, even for an Orc. Despite her relative size, she packs a punch that would surprise most people. Although, her punches tend to be directed from the end of her Pistols. That being said, Jazz lacks all sense of proper public decorum, including dress, behaviour, etc. You name it, and she will mess it up. If you want someone shot, she is your Gal. If your interested in discussing Strategy and Tactics, Jazz is an adept strategist, and knows her way around the Neo Tokyo Streets like the best of them.

Fixer (2/3) - "Jason" - An older, well cybered, Japanese man. Most likely "Jason" is a long-since retired 'Runner, having decided to "throw in the towel" so to speak and lend his well earned experience, and contacts, to others. For a price, of course.

Background:
Jazz grew up on the streets. That should be considered a mostly literal statement, being an Orc in the Neo Tokyo sprawl was nothing, if not difficult. And Jazz can attest to this.
Jazz was the result of an unfortunate situation between a well respected Corp man, she never found out who, and her mother. Jazz's mother was, shall we say, a "User Experience" professional. As a result of her, umm, profession, she was not permitted children, and Jazz was no less than an unwanted surprise. The key to that statement, of course, was unwanted.
Jazz's mother spent her first year with Jazz attempting to find contacts in the Orc Underground, which she didn't have, so that she could pass off this unfortunate youngster to someone would would take good care of her. Interestingly, the Orc Underground is not easy to locate in Neo Tokyo, and did not see fit to reciprocate Jazz's mother's attempts.
Following that failure, Jazz was literally tossed (and yes, she bounced) out the front door of her mother's home, nearly on her first birthday. This would have been a tragic story, if it ended here. But "tragic" doesn't begin to describe it. Jazz was "rescued from the street that day by a gang, mostly men, who thought it would be "fun" to keep alive their very own metahuman pet.
For the sanity of the listeners, I will skip the early years of her life. They don't need to be remembered.

Long-story short, Jazz managed to escape the captivity of the gang when her magic manifested.

Body:2 | Agility:2 | Reaction:2 | Strength:2 | Charisma:2 | Intuition:4 | Logic:2 | Willpower:4
Edge:5 | Essence:N/A | Initiative:7 | Astral Initiative:10 | Magic/Force: 5

Description:
Shasta normally appears to be an entirely forgettable woman, of moderate height, moderate build, moderately fit, brown eyes and brown shoulder-length hair, wearing earth-tone forgettable clothing. Shasta generally spends her time on the back-streets of Manhattan, watching the "strange" behaviors of metahumanity in it's various versions. She particularly enjoys watching the behavior of gangs, and gang-related activity.

In the Astral, Shasta is obviously an Air Spirit.

Fixer (3/4) - Jim - Jim fancies himself a little bit "old fashioned" in that he prefers to work with a finite list of clients, and give them personalized attention. He often grumbles that the "lost art" of, what did he call it? Oh, right, the "lost art of being an Agent" was worth the extra trouble; whatever an "agent" is, anyway... Jim took a liking to Shasta the instant he met her. She is "plucky" and playful, and he likes that "naive" quality, enjoying her fresh perspective on the world. That childlike capacity to look at the world around him with the freedom to see things as they are, rather than as "experience" has taught you they might be. For that reason, Jim has chosen Shasta as one of his "few" 'Runners.

Background:
Temperament - Being a relatively new Free Spirit, Shasta still hasn't fully gotten her bearings on this world. At the moment, she treats everything with a considerable amount of skepticism, including Materialization. Some of the time, this leads to some very interesting circumstances... And some times it can cause some fairly significantly absurd situations.

Shasta, unlike many Free Spirits, actually knows and actively pursues her relationship with the Magicians who summoned her. She generally keeps her professional life separate from these Magicians, but there is a certain "kinship" amongst them. It is entirely possible, and in fact probable, that these feelings have some thing to do with the circumstances surrounding her summoning, so let me take a moment and step back, telling this story as it really should be told.
A small group of Druids got together and came up with a specific way in which they were interested in "focusing" their magical abilities. They were under the impression that if they pooled their magical resources, it would make it easier for them to increase their magical power over the course of their magical careers. Of course, this impression is somewhat well documented, so their thoughts were not unlikely from being correct, but you never really know until you attempt it, correct?
Well, this small group got together over Soycaf one morning and began a brainstorming session. It was a somewhat detailed brainstorming session, involving life, and love, and the metaplanes, the meaning of life, religion, and this old dude named Plato. After several hours, and an uncomfortably large Soycaf bill, the Druids had finally settled on a detailed intuitive understanding regarding the way in which they would manage their new magical "religion". Part of this religion required them to have a focus, similar to the "Foci" which Magicians so frequently use to boost the power of their various magical tasks, in order to boost their magical ascension. This focus, however, needed to be a "living focus"; not unlike the way that some special "Adepts" are able to take on, and sustain a spell.
The Druids then retired from the expensive Soycaf of the Cafe (where in the world did the name "Cafe" come from, anyway?) and back to the apartment of one of the group. They started to gather together some of the physical magical foci that they would use to anchor their magic in a physical sense. But there needed to be two parts to this as well; there are always two parts to Magic.
Once they had a suitably well considered physical focus gathered and carefully aligned, the small group of friends sat down together and began the process of Summoning their "Magical Focus". You see, they had decided that they were going to summon, and then set free, a Spirit. These very strange Magicians didn't come to the realization that they should ask the Spirit before they set it "Free" whether or not it would be interested in holding that role until after the first summoning turned in to a drastic disaster. They were, however, intuitive enough to understand that this particular task should be set upon the spirit only after it had been Freed, lest the Spirit "Yes" them in order to escape servitude.

To make a long story slightly less long: Shasta was the third try, according to them. And she was only too happy to have been given an opportunity too become a part of the "Material Plane" here.

Since that time, Shasta has spent several of what you humans call "Months" building up her "professional resume". It turns out that a newly freed spirit is not quite the same as a summoned spirit. The differences can be significant, significantly beneficial, and also significantly disappointing. Shasta has become all too aware of the response from the Magicians in this world to working with her. Most of them are under the strangely mistaken impression that it is not only possible, but reasonable, to expect that they can simply summon a spirit who can do what they are asking her to do better. Unfortunately, as the tasks she is asked to accomplish become increasingly specific, they are correct.
On the personal angle: Shasta has had some unfortunate experiences over the past several months. She has come to understand, in deep, dark, and quite uncomfortably gory detail, that Metahumanity is a complex organism, made up of many constructive parts, and a few drastically destructive parts. Unfortunately, they balance. Being a Spirit, and without the need for sleep, or even normal bodily responses, Shasta has made a careful study of the underbelly of the beast (as it were) over the past several months. She is somewhat familiar, at this point, with how the "Black Market" works. She knows how the "Crime Syndicates" operate, and why they are allowed to. She is also familiar with the ignorance that the "regular" citizens hold to the dark and deep (meant both literally and figuratively) goings-on in the city. Shasta is impressed by the tenacity of the metahuman creature, and it's unwillingness to cease to survive. "Homeless" people are perfect examples. They find themselves surrounded on all sides with crime, war, and poverty; yet they sleep on the streets, and beg for scraps all day.
One of the few things that Shasta has come to appreciate in the Metahuman creatures is their general compassion. Since she was summoned for the sole purpose of being set free, Shasta has a somewhat lofty impression of what Metahumanity should want from their colleagues. Shasta, so far, has not been terribly disappointed. It turned out, to her observation, that most people in most situations actually do want their fellows, be them Orc, Troll, etc. to survive, comfortably. Most of the homeless people manage to survive. They get warm clothing given to them in the winter. They are handed food and water in the day time. And they aren't kicked, most of the time, from where they sleep. Shasta has come to understand that People generally care.
That said, she has absolutely no forgiveness in this world for Magicians who choose to misuse their spirits. It is bad enough that Corporations can create a slavery in numbers out of their lower-class denizens. But Spirits are so often treated as slaves, without the number barrier, right to their faces! Shasta has come to understand, through her observation of poorly treated spirits, what it means to have "Hatred" here among the Metahumanity. Interestingly, in that circumstance, she also learned what it means to die. Or, at least as closely as she can to the Metahuman definition.

Full Name: Ginseng Deeproot MacCann
Street Name: "Ginny" (Pronounced "Jinny")

Female Orc Magician
Attributes:
Body:4 | Agility:2 | Reaction:3 | Strength:3 | Charisma:1 | Intuition:5 | Logic:2 | Willpower:5
Edge:2 | Magic/Force: 7 | Essence:N/A | Initiative:8 | Astral Initiative:10

Description:
Ginny is a stout Orc. From the top of her head, she manages to reach all the way to the ground. Most of the time. And when she is touching the ground, she generally stands somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.3 meters tall. This, of course, is dependent on the company she is presently keeping. If she is with her team, of course, she is likely to take up all of those 1.3 meters. If the Captain is in the room, or even someone more superior, she may be taking up somewhat less of that 1.3 meters. And, she is likely to reach all the way to the ground under those circumstances.
Ginny is well traveled on the streets, and has done more than her fair share of time on the Beat. In that time, Ginny has seen both ends of most combat weaponry, and bears the scars to prove it. Her face is pocked and puckered from years of close combat fighting. Most of the time she ended up coming out on top, but that's probably only because Beat criminals are not the top of the totem pole, if you know what I mean.
She generally dresses in some semblance of uniform, even when at home. She has many years worth of Blues stored up, and doesn't mind dipping in to older, more worn versions for her leisure time. At work, she is well pressed and crisp.

Combat Magician (2/3) - MJ - The first Combat Magician Ginny has had any chance to work with, Ginny has begun to build a relationship with MJ. MJ has been with KE for a long time now, and seems to appreciate Ginny's work ethic, and willingness to do what it takes to enforce law and order on the unruly streets of Seattle. Ginny expects that, if her time at KE lasts, she will likely build a strong relationship with MJ over time.

Background:
You may have guessed it from the name, but Ginseng Deeproot, as her parents refer to her, was not born in the city. In fact, if she still had any contact with her parents at all, they probably wouldn't be particularly pleased to learn that she was living in the city either. Ginny was born to her parents, both direct descendants of the MacCann Clan of Scotland, in what used to be called the southern Shnohomish. Now, of course, this is part and parcel of Salish Sidhe, and her parents have "relocated" since the solidification of the NAN. Ginny is not entirely certain where her parents ended up, but since she had always wanted to be in the business of Law Enforcement, she hasn't spent a great deal of effort attempting to track down her burned out hippy parents, and whatever commune they are currently smoking their way through.
Ginny started at Lone Star when she was 13, having just reached physical maturity for an Orc. She was immediately assigned to a grizzled old human as a partner on his Beat. The two of them fought a losing battle against street crime for more than 2 years before her partner did not manage to make it out of one situation alive. Ginny, 15 at the time and already bearing the scars of the Beat, requested a new partner. Her request was denied, and her superior informed her that she was to continue to work that Beat.
More than a year later, Ginny was still working the Beat, "by hook or by crook" attempting to keep some semblance of law and order. She was by and large unsuccessful, and fed up with her job when her life took a curious turn for the worse. Or, so she thought. Ginny, in a particularly stressful encounter, discovered that she had magical abilities. She immediately became the target of discrimination at work, and within a few months (now only 16 years old), had been laid off with an anything-but-generous severance package to help her stay on her feet while she attempted to find other employment. Ginny, the honest, hard working woman that she was, returned to her Beat to find that there was no replacement. She spent the next several weeks organizing a community fund to keep her in her apartment, and took over law enforcement on her Beat.

This was how Knight Errant found Ginny in 2070, when they managed to win the Law Enforcement contract from Lone Star for Seattle. Ginny had had little time to develop her magical abilities, but the little she had done with it had helped her tremendously in keeping the peace. She found that she was able to "enchant" simple creatures and machines to behave in an intelligent way and help her work her Beat.
Knight Errant, of course, saw the potential in someone as hard working and honest as Ginny appeared to be, and immediately recruited her to be a team-member of one of their strike teams. Ginny agreed on one condition: That her Beat be given proper attention. KE was delighted to have such an easy bargaining session, and took Ginny on and to training immediately. In the few months since then, Ginny has had a chance to develop her magical abilities to a much higher degree under the tutelage of the Knight Errant Combat Magicians.

Magical Tradition:
Ginny, having built her Tradition herself, over the years working the Beat, has a strange amalgamation of the Cities, and the nature, from which she came. It is simply an extension of herself, and her life. She was born and raised in the wild, working and living with some of the "true hippies" of '20s and '30s. When she was old enough, and self assured enough, to seek out her own life, Ginny made her way to civilization and took a job working the Law. Her magic is informed by the combination of those two things, and has come from within her in a very intuitively interesting way. The intersection of man and nature shows clearly in the way that her magic works.
Ginny interacts with two very different sets of magical entities in her life. On the "Man" side, Ginny is comfortable working with, and through, "Spirits of Man" and "Task Spirits", as those are the magical representations of the world of Man that Ginny is most comfortable, and familiar, with. However, she comes from the woods, literally. And her Magical nature has taken pieces of that with her. Most clearly, Ginny works with Spirits of Fire, Earth, and Plant, those having been the most common themes in her young life with her parents.
Combat: Fire
Detection: Earth
Health: Plant
Illusion: Man
Manipulation: Task

Drain: Intuition + Willpower
This is an Inhabitation/Possession tradition, manifesting most clearly in Ginny's ability to "enchant" critters and/or homunculi to work with her and her team to accomplish their ends. On very rare occasions, Ginny will call upon the aid of a Task spirit to complete specific tasks. Other than that, generally Ginny's spirit assistants are of the form of a Flying critter, who works to keep the group informed and prepared for threats, and a ground-bound critter, who often assists in combat situations. They function no differently than a Drone-based Rigger.

PostSubject: Sha'hGrim   Fri Nov 11, 2011 11:18 am

Female Human Mystic Adept/Magician
Attributes:
Body:5 | Agility:4 | Reaction:6 | Strength:2 | Charisma:7 | Intuition:6 | Logic:3 | Willpower:5
Edge:6 | Essence:6 | Initiative:15/4 | Astral Initiative:15/4 | Magic: 9 (7 for Magician Purposes)

Description:
Sha'hGrim is of normal hieght for an Elven woman. She walks with grace and poise, rarely hurrying unless the situation calls for it. She keeps her head up, and does not check her email or messages while walking, preferring to treat those around her with respect, and stepping out of the way before reviewing her electronic communications out of the flow of traffic (or view of "Big Brother's" eye...).
Sha'hGrim's appearance carries a very strange Metalic Silver hue to everything she is near. Her hair is bright, shining silver, even slightly reflective in the sunlight. Her irises are similarly slightly reflective Metalic Silver. Even her skin, though it takes a moment of careful scrutiny to notice beyond the eyes and hair, has a slight Metalic Silver hue. While this is not terribly strange in this day and age, especially in a club or nightlife, it is most definitely surprising. All told, the effect is likely striking, and very easilly located during the day.
Sha'hGrim generally wears very nice clothing, most often favoring the Steampunk line by Vashon Island while she is out and about. She occasionally wears a pant-suit, but most often is seen wearing a skirt and blouse underneath her overcoat. Because of her skin pigmentation, and the coordinated hair and eye colors, Sha'hGrim NEVER wears makeup. She also seems to near wear any head-wear. She displays her Elven ears with gusto and pride.
Sha'hGrim is quiet, shy, and unlikely to show any personality similar to her appearance. It is almost as though "The Gods" knew that her personality would be so withdrawn, and gave her the appearance she now has to remind the world that she is there. If a stranger were to approach Sha'hGrim, she will react in a highly withdrawn but cordial manner. She will answer questions, generally, to the best of her ability, but will not volunteer further information, nor will she intentionally carry on a conversation. Beyond her shy exterior, Sha'hGrim is warm and considerate. She makes a fine friend, as she is very easy to get along with and up for nearly any kind of Social interactions.
