Codename: Giger
Legal Name: Olivia Han Malayn
High Concept: High-Spirited Hacker
Trouble: Tech Junkie


"Hacking isn't about busting down the front door. It's about slipping through the tiny little basement windows that nobody thought they'd need to put locks on."


The daughter of an IT grunt and the senior hostess at a popular Indian restaurant, Olivia was introduced to technology early, sitting on her father's lap while he kept up with the latest advances. As she grew, she continued to learn from him, and on her own. Unfortunately her first solo forays onto the internet, under the name Her father liked bad puns.OloveUnicorns, were met with some of the mysogyny that still resides in a great many places. She withdrew for a time, but would not be defeated for long. Returning with a literal vengeance under the name HandOfShiva, she punished those most directly involved in her misery with a page of virus-infected nude pictures. Older and possibly wiser, she's learned to navigate cyberspace more cautiously but also more thoroughly. She isn't generally malicious, but she always keeps her talents honed, just in case.

Even hackers need to pay the bills, though, and while Olivia is too squeamish to become the doctor her mother dreamed she would be, for the time being she's happy to follow in her father's footsteps- at least until she can find a bigger purpose for her life. She found herself a rather mundane IT job for a little-known organization, but when she started poking around some of her colleagues' files, she found things that shook all of her understanding to the core.

Codename: Van Winkle
Legal Name: Ichabod Collins
High Concept: Not Your Elementary Crytographer
Trouble: You Don't Know What You Have Til It's Gone

Ichabod is a son of England, but with tensions high between Protestants and Catholics, nobody likes a man who believes both sides are full of it and that those who have their hands in governing the country should have their heads fully in this world. Whether wealth, family name, or influence from those who have made use of his brain, he was not arrested for blasphemy, but strongly encouraged to relocate somewhere where his views would be less problematic.

While he doesn't appreciate being effectively exiled to the wilderness (the colonies not holding a candle to the civilization of England), he is not brewing in resentment. There's plenty to occupy his attention within the microcosm of the settlements, and with the natives of the land.

Notes) Possibly an ancestor of a PC?
Apologies for the lack of a period-appropriate image, but if you pick Ichabod I'll try to find or make one.

Thank you to everyone that has applied or has PM with questions, etc.

I was on the beech in Florida with the time came to close this, but the good news is that all the characters/players that have applied at this point made all the deadlines - sorry for the delay updating the character listing until now.

We'll get the results posted and I'll be PMing invitations/job offers to new agents around Wednesday or sooner.

Thanks again for your interesting in Dark*Matter: The Hoffman Institute!!

Notes on Alternative SubmissionA little late, but I think I made it just under the wire with this one via a PM to Savoylen, who cleared me to post the last minute alternative submission.


left-aligned image
Code Name: Midew
High Concept: Enslaved Abenaki ‘Medicine Man’
Trouble: Vengeful (soon to e replaced by something far worse in the modern era)
Additional Aspect: Secretive trickster
 

Called Midew Missal by his tribe, he was a valued medicine man who dabbled in the art of trickery. He was captured in a counter-assault by the British colonists after his tribe sent most of its most powerful warriors to raid small settlements in New England. Midew was mocked by them as a healer until he was able to heal the sick son of a wealthy settler. He was brought into that settler’s summer home as a personal doctor for the staff and family, though most neighbors still thought it preposterous that any white man would trust the medicinal skills of any savage (“his own people are being eradicated by something as simple as the flu! So much for his medical skills!). In the winter, they go to their second home in Charles Town.

Midew quietly seeths for the loss of his homelands and his tribe’s status as slaves, but he he almost permanently severed from them. He makes no secret of his ability to heal, but quietly plots with Atsolowas (trickster God) to lure the white man into folly and to escape slavery.
