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.

Part of the point of choosing an elf is usually to take advantage of the high Charisma. Especially in the Magician facility where you can get a Charisma score much higher than your logic of intuition scores. Depending on the Path you choose for magic will let you use that high Charisma to resist drain. If you want to use Will I'd choose a dwarf. I think they get a boost to will...

You'll need to really justify that Loyalty 6. I've known a lot of blood relatives that would barely score a 2... I'm not saying it can't be done, (although that is because I don't know if it can... Gala?) but you have to really flesh that relationship out in your Background. Because of how strong the relationship is, you could be justified to make the contact as a character with a full background too. That would really help the GM with how they know each other, and how they interact.

part of the charm of role-playing for me is not to make the ultimate character, but to fulfil something I have imagined, this time something that resembles me, my lifestyle + my favourite class[ may be even dual class]

We can scrap thin Contact completely, it was never intended to be useful, just the reason he decided to come to this city and loy 6 is from old age - not much to lose, wealthy - magic shop owner, only relative that ever has shown any skill in magic + aunt with no children, taking him under the wing - mother instinct kinda.

I am more interested in the armour, is it ok? and does bilingual second Native language cost BP, did not find anything on that.

P.s. thanks on the advice about the dwarf, next time will think more on the attributes.

I never harp on anyone for RP value. That being said, you may want to move some points around to boost whichever attribute you'll be using from your Path.

You can get any eq up to AR 12. So the armor should be fine. Just make sure it's legit with the 2xbody limit

Thanks, the helmet bonus really pushed me over the limit. - corrected

redone most of the attributes, edited skills.

Have just one question:

I have "Martial art" Quality, but have disposed the unarmed combat skill, up until now have not found anything that explained this siltation, what do you say?
Any way can make 1 attribute -> Unarmed combat : 2 + MA spec.

That isn't quite how the martial arts quality works, you should read the Arsenal core book.

There are plenty of martial arts styles listed in the previously stated book outside of unarmed combat, bladed weapons, cyber weapons, magic, firearms, etc. If you're going to try to blend magic with a fire arms martial artist, i would suggest going with a blend between krav maga and firefight. Which you are working towards on your character.

I would also suggest changing one of your spells for increased reflexes, as it is, you only have 1 initiative pass, low agility, and low initiative.

yeah that's the reason I took the unarmed combat + spec. out in the first place[as English is not my native and not even my first foreign language I doubt my understanding of it a lot], but thanks for the confirmation and the good advice, went from Mage with some training to a fighting machine, good advice!
Big thanks from me!

So redistribute some skill point into attributes and hope this will end up to be a somewhat near average character. [do not have big hope for my first born Runner]
At the moment I do not see any need to change something else, so that means at least for me it is finished(I think, but I can be totally wrong too)

I am pretty sure it just costs the 5 (?) BP for the quality.

Story

Keiserin/Crimson



When you meet her in the Black Rose Host club you would not think this girl had the life she had, and you would not believe she is what she is.
Born in Germany to a father from Denver and mother from Neo-Tokyo. She spent her childhood in Germany, Bremen to be precise. When Yukiko was 11 years old her parents went trough a divorce, her father won the right to have her despite her mother and herself fighting against that.
After the divorce they moved back to Denver. In Denver Yukiko joined a gang just to anger her father. Not long after she had the whole gang eating out of her palm, may be it was because she was one of the few girls they had in their ranks, or may be her adept powers were starting to show, but soon she was dubbed Kaiserin, after the steam era leaders from Germany.
Around the time Yukiko celebrated her 18th birthday her gang got a lot of heat from an attack of an high ranking wage slave, at first they fought back, but soon it escalated that far that real shadowruner where sent after them.
Yukiko decided to take a risk, she would run away from home, and travel to her mother. Her mothers location and contact information was a well kept secret and only using her adept power of commanding voice she got to know that she lives in Neo-Tokyo. Not long afterwards she had found a talent scout who would provide work and pay for tickets. Being in debt was not optimal, but if it helps her survive and find her mother, then it was the best thing ever.
The talent scout was not as clean as he seemed, and after learning that Yukiko had Magical powers, he insisted in training her as a Face for a shadowruning team. As Yukiko was always been a big Fan of Japanese culture, especially Ninjas, she found the idea somewhat pleasing, even thou risking her life was not a thing you would consider lightly.
Just a year later she could get inside most restricted areas, talk people into most bizarre things and live to tell the tale. The only thing bothering her now was to find her mother.
Part of The journal of Kouryuu Nagasami(talent scout)

You want to know who I am? I am the wind behind your back, I am the shadow in your shadow, I am the Crimson Ninja, I AM CRIMSON, and you will never know any better, then that.
Yukiko’s favorite line, a copy from a cheap ninja trid
In the gang in Denver she started to wear steam punk style, and when her melanin control abilities showed themselves, first thing she did was to change her skin and hair colors accordingly to her style. Red hair with black parts, pale skin, even in Neo-Tokyo she kept it on, and many thought she were a Gothic Lolita, but better not say it loud, because she may be much, but nice is not a thing you will often as a stranger from her.
