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.

T-Drake also Known as Private Anthony Corelli in The UCAS Marine Corp atleast that is what he used to be called until a couple Assaults on his superior officers and a grand larceny charge cost him him 10 years in the brig when he got out he went to Seattle to his old neighborhood in Rainier Valley to his mother's house his brother Steve was waiting for him there who in the ten years Drake was in the system had made himself a made man in the mafia and a well known Fixer before he could sit down his brother had a job for him but before anything he had to see his old girl Lilly when he got closer to the address his brother gave him all he could see were metahumans mostly Orcs & Trolls a couple dwarfs nothing he wasnt used to being in the Marines he learned that Orcs and Trolls are as reliable as brothers at arms as Humans but he kept walking up the cement stairs then a well built Orc woman yelled "Tony!" on instinct he went to draw his Marine-Issue Knife he had on him but before he could the Orc had a grip on him then she loosened the bear hug a little to a more affectionate hug and as Drake looked more closely he notice that this Orc that had charged at him was his old love Lilly Forento who had been thru Goblinization she said
that it was about 5 years ago he thought to himself that was around the time she stopped mailing him but he didnt care now he was with her they spent the rest of the night partying with what she called novacoke she told him that is what she did for a living selling this drug for his brother when he woke up the next morning he hailed a cab to go to his brothers place which was as good as a kid from Rainier Valley could do as he got to his brother's suite two large Trolls stopped him and said "your brother said you was comin go on in chummer"as he entered his brother was siting on a large chest and said "this my brother is yours so is this" as he said this his brother pulled a credstick with 8,914 nuyen on it and keys to a Harley-Davison Scropion the chest had a AK-97,Lined Coat,Raecor sting,Some IDs and a contact lense with a smartlink enhancment also a card from Gates Undersound Hotal was in one of the coat pockets Steve said "oh yeah almost forgot about that its where you be living for awhile thought you didnt want to live with Moms while you got on your feet" T-drake said thanks to his brother and went to pickup lilly and get ready for his first job

if you will accept a little friendly critique:
First off never ever never have will be a dump stat, it is a very important stat for resisting spells and people talking to you. With a will of one any character with a good charisma and negotiation could have him humbing a Trolls leg and then jumping off of the space needle, and no mention how much fun a cruel mage would have with him (Dance my weak willed puppet).

You to expand out the active skills a lot. The way you have this guy written up now he sits in the corner waiting to kill something. SR is not about going out and killing things. It is good to be good at something but a character should also be good at other things as well. A little etiquette and negotiation is at least needed to get weapons after character generation. Going with the gun nut theme you have going I would suggest some gun build repair skills so he can at least maintain his weapons.

you have to many attributes at one, distribute the focus a bit. As a shooter, action character you dont want a reation of one. a 5 year old girl can get the drop on him. I dont like Cha as a dump stat but at at least make it a two, the idea is to form a team which means you have to work with people and if you are going to trust someone to watch your back you should be a little more likeable (make it a 2 min, in my opinion). A little boost in logic wouldn't hurt either. Basically distribue your attribute points a little more evening. In my opinion it is almost never worth maxing an attribute at character gen.

Increase the knowledge attributes to give him more diverse knowledge skills so he can be more useful in the the legwork portion of a run (thats where the team pools its knowledge to find the best plan for getting a job done, kick in the door guns blazing will usually get you dead, remember you get about 10 hit points and thats it ever).

Give him some interests to round out the character more and give him some depth. What does this guy like to do when he isn't perferating people who offend him or stand in his way?

Switch Sperethial for English. Most groups are english speaking, it helps to be able to communicate with your team members.

Flesh out the contacts more. who are they, what race, which one is your fixer, which one is your gun runner, how are they connected to the character?

Take some negative qualities, its the characters weaknesses and overcoming them that really bring a character to live and fun to role play.

Can you get deltaware at character gen? I'm not sure but I doubt it. Plus some of those things are worth taking deltaware grade, balance the cost to benefit ratio on things like that.

Commlink: what model, what OS what programs?

Cyber eyes: what grade, what accessories?

Thank you for adding up the positive qualities because it looked like you were over and I couldn't take the time to check the costs right now. you can only have 35 points MAX in positive qualites.

I think you approached this character backwards. Its always a good idea to approach the character with a concept first (IE. I am going to make a street sammy who is ex military) and assign everything based on that concept. and formulate a background as you work. there is usually alot of back and forth as you try to bring a character to life. Where is he from, does he have family, what has he done with his life so far to learn the skills that he has, why is he running the shadows as opposed to a nice cushy corp job with lonestar, what is his personality like, what doesn't he like?

As an exercise try making yourself as a SR character, you know your background, you know your skills (yes its ok to exagerate that year of karate into a 5 in unarmed combat), you know your interests, you know your contacts, you know your quirks. Put that on paper, look at it an realize that every character you make should be like that. They should have a history (usually its formulateD as you are making the character, hmmm dependant negative quality, ok so he has a daughter, alright who is the mother? do they live together? How old is she? what does she do? would she make a good contact?) In the case of your character he has national fame, ok for what? why is he famous, who would recognize him? etc etc

If you have any other questions feel free to PM me.

First let me say, I tend to be blunt, so take everything in a good way, I'm not trying to destroy you, I understand this is the first time you have done this:

I agree with S. N.. This is a character type called min/max and most of the GM-s do not allow this kind. This isn't an MMO where you build a "Tank" who cannot write down his name but is unstoppable in a fight, here (because this game is somewhat related to the real word) your character will be quickly stamped as an ugly, weak minded simpleton and treated accordingly (because the world is cruel). The emphasis in real RPG-s is on the ROLE playing element, being what you would want to be - now, you want to be an ugly, drooling gun stroker who does everything if somebody shouts at him? Rhetorical question, but I think you don't want that.

So if you want, we can help to shape your character resembling an actual person, while still being awesome!

Try using the Chummer character generator (google it), I think it's the best for new players and it's updated regularly (and counts the gear, essence and other stuff for you, warns that you cannot have delta grade implants at character generation and protects you from other mistakes as well)

Attributes: as Nougat said, and a few more. You shouldn't max an attribute unless it's veryvery important for you for some reason. I can understand AGI being a priority, but ask yourself if that final point of increase (which adds 1 die to your rolls) is worth the 25 BP from which you could buy 2 points of reaction, a skill point, and 5k of money. And that skill should be Dodge, because without that and with a reaction of 1 you will literally die before your first fight. STR should be around 3 if you want a gun bunny, not a melee fighter. Willpower 3 is the very minimum and some Logic would be good, unless you don't want a character who cannot count his fingers. If you feel pressed for points, you can make Charisma 1 but as you will most likely need to speak to people in the game, be prepared that sometimes it will have negative consequences (when you are surrounded by a gangful of Ancients, it doesn't matter how good you are in shooting, talking out your way is the only option).

Skills: Firearms is a group skill, it has Automatics in it so you cannot buy it again at a rating of 6. You can have the cheap group skill which will make you well-rounded or you can have the higher costing Automatics, but then you won't know how to handle a pistol or shogun (unless you buy those too, but then it will cost you a lot of BP-s)

Knowledge skills: knowing English is crucial, being fluent (6) in another ones are not because this character is better to not to talk to people and understanding a language is achieved at around 2.

Contacts: they cost much and they awesome, except when you don't know what are they doing (fixer, hacker, weapons dealer etc.) A connection 6 contact is an international big league player and you have to actually talk to him/her if you want something from them. Now with Logic 1 Charisma 1 and without even an Etiquette skill...let's just say elephant in a porcelain store, and they do not tend to be patient individuals spending their time talking to a person who wears combat boots to a dinner party and spells his name wrong three times.

Qualities: 35 BP is max and you should take some negatives as well - if you choose well, they are not threatening the survival of the character (do not choose combat paralysis if you are a gun bunny) but give you BP and some flavor to the play.

Gear: I think you should start low, with the very essentials, and build up from there (what would the character need). Throwing cool stuff together without a concept will cost you money, Essence and space. Examples: Full Body Armor (again, Tank, but how will he walk on the street? And it has the availability 14R so you cannot have it with a starting char), Cybereye just for the smartlink (buy a contact lenses, cheaper and doesn't cost essence). But you don't have even a basic ID, or a Driving License for that sweet chopper.

That's it for now, hope I helped. Keep reading that core book until you familiar with it and don't give up!
