Got such a character myself. Mercenary soldier who is deadly in a fight,
flies/drives well and decks a little (program carriers, which I liked and
kept under house rules so Green systems are manageable but anything
tougher is a no-go area... no cyberdeck, though)

He's retired from playing RPGs and only used on ShadowTK now, though,
and has been for some years...

But I guess there must be a respectable number of characters like that out
there: generated in 1989 and played hard since then.

(as for Quinn, my first and only magician character... Lord only knows
what _she'd_ be like if I had kept track of her stats and not just dusted
off her September '91 sheet for several campaigns that needed a "tough
magical character'. Even back then she was a Level 2 initiate... a cybered
Coyote Shaman who suggested "Ground a spell out through _these_ reflex
