YoYo, whose real name is unknown, is the leader of a small but deadly
squad of runners that operate out of somewhere deep in the Caribbean
League. The group is composed of elite street sams, mages, and netrunners
with a focus on "operation cleanliness," or carrying out a mission quickly
w/o f*cking up. They're quite good; the "Squad"'s never once failed to earn
their money. Most of their missions carry a price tag in excess of one
million nuyen. Needless to say, only hire YoYo's men if it's important.
He never operates w/o them.
YoYo himself is believed to have been born and raised in the Caribbean,
but rumors have placed his childhood in southern Africa. He's a black
male, 6'3" tall, with a light-to-medium build. Usually garbed in a white
suit over a black silk shirt w/ a white "Panama Jack" style hat, he weilds
an intense stare and low, monotone voice w/o any appreciable accent that
would send many razorguys cowering.
His cyberaugmentation is believed to be extensive; much of it
Beta-customized. A tactical computer is listed in reports of what he has
implanted. Bioware likely includes enhanced articulation and
damage-reducing implants. All installations are as cosmetic as possible.
His "name," however, derives from his weapons of choice: two monofilament
whips disguised as jet black, polished "Duncan" yo-yos. He is not only
perhaps the world's most skilled artist w/ a whip, but can use two
simultaneously in a display of talent that would knock you over...and
likely dice you before you hit the carpet.
He is also heard to carry a stainless steel Ruger Super Warhawk and own a
Ranger Arms SM-3, but stories claim he has never used either firearm...
