just bringing the application deadline forward to Friday 13th Jan (uh Oh!)

Seems odd to me to have it on a Tuesday...

Is it too late to put in a char? I actually have CP Red (I got it as a gift a while back ), would not mind trying it out.

Tentitively done: I might make some changes though. I rolled 0's for friends, enemies, and lovers; should I had a few for flavour or just leave it for in-game? I'm OK either way.
I am still learning how to use this site so I'll just C&P for now and make it pretty later.
If anyone knows how I reduce the size of this picture, that would be appreciated.

right-aligned image

Character Name: - Jiang Yingyue (Northern Chinese)

Handle: - Niú (It's meant to be Niú, or "Awesome", something Niú said a lot when she was young but sometimes gets changed to Niù, or "Stubborn", by her friends when they make fun of her. The non-Mandarin way usually comes out to Niū, which means "Girl"; it's not an insult but Jiang doesn't like it.)

Role: - Netrunner

Back Story: (note: I'm not sure if there's a Corp in particular you might want me to use so I will leave Corp-specific items vague for now)

Born into a life of privilege, Niú and her older sister were groomed by their Father from an early age to potentially rise up the ranks of the Corporate ladder. Niú's sister, like her Father, was very charismatic, able to lead teams and get people to do whatever they wanted to do; the perfect Corporate drone. Niú was more like her Mother; quite, contemplative, and resourceful, always looking to take advantage of any situation that might arise. Niú's Family was very tight-knit and loved each other dearly. During her early schooling, Niú was trained in a 'Leadership' program like her sister but she hated it; too much politics. Against her Father's wishes she took up a demeaning 'tech' course, learning how to manipulate technology and the NET. She was good at it, and had top grades in her class. It's also where she met some people with a dubious reputation and a love of using computers to do unsavoury things.

Not long after her 16th birthday, Niú's life changed forever and to this date she's still trying to piece together the details. That night, a strike team arrived at her Family's home in full tactical gear as if they expected heavy resistance. Caught completely unawares, Niú's Father, Mother, and Sister were quickly apprehended and escorted away in a Corporate armoured vehicle. Not too long afterwards while staying at a friend's house, Niú learned that her Father was found Guilty of Corporate Espionage; she found that highly unlikely however as her Father was at best 'average' when it came to technology and he was an Exec, not a 'spy'. Using some of the lessons she's learned in school and on the streets, Niú broke into a data cache and found out only that her Family was exiled immediately after 'The Break-In' with not information on where; it was as if someone wanted them out of the City in a hurry never to be seen again.

Since that day, Niú has been plying her trade as a Netrunner, trying to find out what happened to her Family and maybe get them back. Someone within the Corp reached out to Niú, saying they didn't know what happened but that they were a friend of her Father's, and they'd help her out as best as they could. Niú knows nothing of this mysterious benefactor but she understands their secrecy as they're likely already putting their life on the line to help her. Niú has spent her time searching the NET, looking for any information she can find on her Family, selling off what bits of information she can to make a living. An Exec has noticed her work and, possibly as a favour to her Father, helps her out with programs that he can get his hands on. As Niú has gathered a small reputation, a local Fixer has been trying to get her to bring her into her Cadre, but Niú has been resisting their efforts, preferring to work on her own for now...

Personality: Niú gives off the impression of the consummate Chinese professional; when she talks to people she always defers to those of higher rank, she is mindful of her station in life, and she is respectful of her elders. However, those who know her understand that this is just her Face; the real Niú wears the Corporate persona on the outside, but wears her wild and rebellious streak on the inside, juxtaposing against the norm of society which tend to wear their wild side on the outside yet are more conservative within. She doesn't care about your breeding, knowing first-hand that being bred into privilege is as likely to make you soft and spoiled as it is to give you a leg-up in the world. She respects those who work hard and earn their Name, not those handed a silver spoon; these are the people she will truly defer to in life. There is a slight exception; she does respect the Elderly; managing to survive until old age might not be glamourous but it should be honoured.

Appearance: In an Age where many people, especially Edgerunners, dress as wildly as possible, Niú could not possibly stand out more. She looks like someone straight out of Corporate America except with a slight cyberpunk twist. Where people her age might have wild, multi-coloured hair which changes every minute, Niú's is, well, brownish-black and very plain. Where people her age might have spikey hair, crazy hair implants, or even no hair at all, Niú's is, well, long and straight and quite ordinary. Where most people have some visual implants on their person, Niú has barely anything, preferring to keep a 'cleaner' look. 'Ordinary' notwithstanding, Niú is a fairly attractive young woman of Chinese decent, probably somewhere close to her mid 20's, slightly taller than average with a hint of an athletic build and a well-tailored bespoke look, and a splash of accessories.

@Remorazz stick up a character anyway - slot may open up.

@Classic Gamer, @taleteller50 did you receive the mail?

I had an idea for a media. But it looks like you already have one.
