Our decker has disappeared, so we're looking for a replacement quick! Apply with a completed character sheet to claim the slot!

I resisted the urge to apply when this game first went up. I am currently resisting putting together a decker ...

You're the only one to express interest so far, so if you can throw together a character (or grab a pregen; I have a couple), you've got the spot. I can help out with any questions you may have on how decking works.

Has the decker slot already been filled? I know it’s already been two weeks since the bat signal was lit for one.

A New Challenger has Entered the Arena!

Runner Name/Real Name: Death Otter
Metatype: Human
Role: Technomancer
Build: Attributes: A, Skills B, Resonance C, Metatype D, Resources E
Sheet
 


Appearance:
Backstory:
The girl who would be an otter heard the Matrix in her head from when she was young. There was no big epiphany, no sudden burst of insight...it was just there. When she was little, it was like a constant babble in a language she couldn't speak. Distracting. It didn't interfere with her hearing, but it definitely messed with her ability to concentrate on things. She had a hard time in school, had a hard time with people. It wasn't until later, when she managed to afford a commlink, that the 'noise' started to make sense. She could reference what she was sensing to what the commlink was showing her. Her folks were simple people, scraping to get by. They had no idea what to do when their daughter told them what was going on, so they...ignored it.

Meanwhile, the girl was living two lives. In one life she was a shy, quiet thing who skulked to avoid notice and lived in fear of the big bad dangerous world. In the other, she was loud and proud, learning good lessons and bad from the sum total knowledge of all metahumanity. She was learning as well that knowledge was power, and that the Matrix wasn't just data for her. In her hands it could be something more.

You can't live with that in your head all the time, and not go a little crazy. In the land of the blind...yadda yadda...

At some point though, her parents started asking friends for advice. And at some point, those questions filtered on down to someone they shouldn't have. A 'technomancer' is hot property for some corps, especially an impressionable young one. When a retrieval team showed up at her apartment she wasn't home. Her folks were, but they didn't know where she was...which didn't go great for them when questioned. The girl herself had a ringside seat though, through the RFID cameras she'd put up around the place when fooling around, testing her abilities.

The girl wanted to go back, show herself, save her parents by letting them take her. The other self...the Matrix self...knew that nothing would save her parents. They'd always be either points of leverage, or liabilities. Turning herself in would accomplish nothing.

So Death Otter killed the girl to save herself. Ate her. There was no more shy, fragile thing who liked doodling in the margins and flinched when someone raised their voice. There was just the loud, the obnoxious, the devil-may-care, the troll-god in the making.

Role-Play Sample:
"Nothiiiiiiing really maaaaaaaatters to meeeeeeeee," singsongs a voice from the spot in the train where the sounds of someone flopping around had just a moment before been coming from. Then a giggle.

"Aww...that was good times. Chummers. Chumchums. Chum in a drum. HEY!"

Death Otter turned off the chameleon surface of her suit, and came back into easy view, pixellating, then resolving. She pulled the head-covering hood back and rubbed a finger under her nose, scrubbing the little smear of blood away. Death Otter was a skinny girl without much in the way of curves, fair and freckled skin on her face, and hair a wild poof of dyed pinkish-purple on top of her head.

"So...train's on course for the," she waggled a hand towards the front of the car. "...the next station. Somethingsomething avenue." Abruptly affecting a very clearly fake British accent she added, "Brimsby, bring the car 'round.' I do so love a drive 'round the park in springtime."

Just as fast Otter droppped the fake accent and stood up off the floor, moving in pained little jerks as she eased back into a body that had been sitting in an awkward position a bit too long.

"So, last I checked in, y'all were getting shot at!" she said brightly, "How'd THAT go?"

While waiting the MILLION YEARS (apprx) it took meatbodies to answer her, Death Otter completed the 'reboot' of her...her head? She guessed? It was hard to explain. A shock like that sort of numbed the part of her brain that could touch the Matrix. A little gingerly, she 'listened' to it again, and the various tags and filters and overlays of Augmented Reality started coming up again.

And the adverts. Oh yay, back on the Pubic Grid. Well, it was better than nothing. Even a few seconds offline made her skin start to itch.

Ack...I just read back to the most recent couple of posts, and realize now that submitting a character here is arguably a bit dickish, and looks like I'm trying to steal it from Hiruma.

Sorry about that. I'll withdraw the app.
