Subject: CHARACTER: Brimstone
Date: Fri, 11 Feb 1994 01:32:01 EST
Archtype: Male, Human Wiz Kid/Hermetic Mage
Brimstone is a juvenile of 16 years of age. He has bright red hair
and black eyes (he ain't sure of his ethnic descent). His plae complexion
almost makes him look ill, or on drugs. He is a fulll-fledged member of
the Renton street gang, the Night-Hunters.
Brimstone started his career as a Night-Hunter and was "jumped-in"
at a very young age. Since that time he was a background ganger, always
feeling ill and just not "in tune." It wasn't until the Night-Hunters
tangled with a group of shadowrunners that Brimstone's magic manifested.
Discovering he was magically active, the gang boss turned him over to
Phantasm, a local street mage who taught kids with the wild talents. The
illness, Brimstone discovered, was due to the essence loss from the
traditional Nighthunter cyberware. Once he recognized the cause and was
trained to overcome this loss (1 point magic), he became much more
confident and learned several spells that aided the gang. (Un)fortunately,
Phantasm refused to teach him and lethal combat spells. He does cast a nasty
Sleep that has saved the gang's butts on several times. At present he
stands somewhere between a wiz kids and an accomplished magician, though
his conjuring skills are extremely week.
