[snip weird stuff...]

Breast Rockets? Weird.

Sadly, this reminded me of my first SR character, Cherry. (Disclaimer :
I didn't create her or her history, I was handed her to play my first
time in the game...)

She and the security team she often worked with woke somewhere, unable
to remember who they were. The only gear they hand on them were some
basic street clothes, and a cred stick. (With some nuyen and their
'handle'. Nothing to indicate their real names.) Of course, they had no
idea what skills, cyberware, spells, or whatnot they had. Learned by
trial and error.

Game went on for a while, with the characters eventaully fionding their
way back to Seattle and their corp. Cherry, who had disovered that she
is fully cybered from the waist down, finally gets a hold of her
dossier. She had been employed as a corporate hooker/psychiatrist, and
some sadistic bastard thought it would be amusing to blow her legs off.
(with a nastily planted bomb that would give anyone, male or female, the
groans.) Thanks to the mage on her team, she survived long enough to get
medical attention. A couple years later, after extensive cyber implants
and the rest of the nine yards, she was retrained and used as an
assassin. (New appearance as well, mods so she wouldn't be easily
recognised.) Her first target - the guy who gave her the bomb. The
record says he died screaming and slowly bled to death. Her trade mark -
Cherry bombs. (Planted you know where. Turns out the whole stuff, tho it
functioned realistic, was armored better than most tanks.)

Some of her files were missing, tho, and she died before I found out the
rest of her history. :/ this may have been a blessing in disguise.
