Awesome. Glad you got it working.

As a reminder to everyone, you have about 4 days to submit new applications or update existing applications. I've finished the first mission outline and will soon work on setting up game threads, so we should be gaming this time next week.

NAME: William Graves, The Six Million Yen Man

METATYPE: Human

ROLE: 6 million in mods opens pretty much every door (looking like high teens for combat and low double digits for social pools matrix pools and)Everything but magical support. Internal Affairs Investigator before transition.

DRAWBACKS: He's already died once and isn't keen to try it again.Combat Paralysis / Non-Corporate Citizens are lazy. If they were hard workers some corp would have snagged them by now.Prejudiced: Common, Biased / Everyone is staring at my cyber, aren't theySocial Stress

DESCRIPTION:

"If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees."

William sat at the bar. His perfect skin, his flawless complexion, and his chiseled muscles would have landed him on the cover of any magazine, but for one thing, they were all phony. Just like me. He thought as yet another exec's kid pointed and stared when she thought William wasn't looking. Jokes on them. I'm always looking.

He stirred his 25 cocktail and waited, pulling up an article on Euro Block economic predictions from the sixties. The investigator had little interest in such things, but he never knew when a piece of trivia would be the key to breaking a case. He flipped screens, adding the numbers and figures to a pile of useless facts you could see from space.

The investigator hated the music, hated the drinks, hated the vibe, but he loved the people watching. His oldest hobby was surveilling people and wondering what their story was. A hobby made easier with a literal radar rig hooked to the supercomputer rattling around in his head case. He'd never really had any friends. Funny how that happens when you dig up dirt for a living. Still, he wouldn't have it any other way. Nothing made the man's heart race like knowing something he shouldn't.

BACKGROUND:

"William Graves, Ares Internal Affairs. A man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him.
We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's, first fully bionic man.
William Graves will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.
"



William loved secrets, other people's secrets, to be precise. Like all young boys, he discovered love in high school. No, not some pretty meta, but the school paper. Yeah, they still have those, I know. I thought they'd gotten rid of schools decades ago too.

His senior year, he uncovered a series of irregularities in the cafeteria budget as he wrote a story about the soy slop they passed off as meat. He discovered a series of kickbacks and bribes, making school officials rich and taco Tuesday unbearable. So, he did what any intrepid young reporter would do, sold the information to an Ares affiliate to help them win next year's contract. What? College ain't cheap, and his deadbeat dad couldn't afford Berkly on a bus driver's salary. Four years of solid A's and a freshly minted corporate SIN later, he joined Ares Partners in ProfitTM department, AKA, the snitch brigade.

The man had never been happier. High school secrets were interesting. Ivy League secrets were better, but corporate executive secrets were the stuff dreams were made of. William possed the unique gift for knowing who to save and who he could sacrifice on the altar of success. He quickly rose the ranks, investing his salary and bonuses into training and 'ware to take him even higher.



Ok, William, you got this. No more middle managers, branch heads, or facility chiefs. She's the Continental VP of sales. You find the right dirt, and it's your ticket to easy street! The investigator pondered what color umbrella drink he'd like in paradise as the container truck unloaded. He knew it was full of kidnapped SINless. The smart money was on human trafficking, with the outside odds on some illegal off-the-books project.

He pulled up the schematics he'd gotten from the city clerk's office and followed them to an old dumbwaiter behind some flimsy drywall. Arm over arm, the box lowered into the sub-basement. The wood felt cool against his ear. The spy equipment was in the bag, but he wanted to savor this. What language is that? He thought, as a drop of blood trickled from his nose. Are their fumes down here?! He started to panic as the box heated and the screams began. William tried to raise the dumbwaiter, but a massive claw tore through the wall and tossed him onto the stone floor. He watched as nightmarish creatures devoured those poor stolen people. "I know him." The VP's voice rang out impossibly shrill. "Dont you look like a snack." She laughed as mandibles burst forth from her neckline. It wasn't a metaphor...

He tried to open his eyes but couldn't. His arms and legs felt like he'd sat on them too long. Shouting pierced the fog. "WHAT DOES HE KNOW? WHO KNOWS WHAT HE KNOWS?!" Mumblings and incessant beeping followed. "Dont worry, sir, he can't prove anything, and when we complete the procedure, he'll be lucky to remember his name. Besides, we can keep a close eye on him as he works for us. It's a win/win." The darkness took him before he woke to an entirely different nightmare than the one he'd last remembered.

There we go. That one has a bit of spice to it!

Not to mention I've always wanted to see what going full RoboCop could do!

He also has 37 mods and 25% less essence remaining than the last guy XD

You'll be working out of a secret facility operated by Leviathan Technical, a subsidiary of Ares, located near San Antonio Valley in the California Free State. Where you actually live is up to you. Try to keep it in the CFS.
