Delta (?) -- Vee <>

zone). Drives a big overchromed pickup when he's in town,has a
with all sorts of modifications including armor,a turbocharged engine and
active suspension for road trips.Regularly runs across the border between the

recently.Enjoys his work quite thoroughly; will happily take a
long-distancerun just to get out on the open road.
Demolition Man (?) -- Keith Ammann <Prospero@***.portal.com>
If you know the Police song by the same name (album: "Ghost in the
Machine"), you've got the right idea for this guy. Violently destructive,
cybered to the gills (literally - he has them), willing to sacrifice anyone
and anything to survive. Actually gets his name not from the song but from
what he does: He is an expert bomber. A paranoid, isolated and unpredictable
loner with no self- consciousness or sense of proportion. One to avoid.
(Note: Has nothing to do with the movie of the same name that I just found
out about. *smile*)
Dendayar (?) -- Werner Meier <meier@**********.tu>
Being born as a Spikebaby at Salem (Oregon) in 2007 Dendayar grew up at
Lavertys mansion. He studied Thaumaturgy at the UTT and graduated as a 2nd
grade initiate in 2047. He now runs the shadows for the interests of Sean
Laverty and sometimes for his own. He's almost ever dressed in black and
wearing some Indian accessoires. As though he often runs for Laverty,he is
not a Paladin of his, but after all Laverty is some kind of father to him. He
only takes a run for the right purpose and not for the money.

A Seattle fixer, Denim is not one of the "movers and shakers" but he
doeshave connections and is able to provide the runners who deal with him
withproductive jobs. Denim appears as a short, skinny man whose clothing
isall of one sort of denim or another, jeans, vest, even canvas sneakers.He
is scrupulously honest, and reliable, which may be the reason he isn'tone of
the most powerful of the fixers in Seattle.
Devir, Alton (?) -- Dave Linch <DML@***>
Better known as Guido. An impossing 1.98 meters and 135 kilos- you canalmost
hear him clank when he walks ("I no longer bleed, I leak.") A verysharp
dressed & charasmatic gentleman, a bit on the quiet side. ("Better tohave
people think your stupid then open your mouth and prove it.") Thisgives the
impression the he is a bit "slow" mentally. (Chummer- You bank onthat and
it's your funeral!) Black hair pulled back in a ponytail to accentis grey
eyes and human features and in a 3 piece suit, he gives theimpression of a
cosmopolitan samurai- deadly, but cosmopolitan.
Diamondback (?) -- Nolan S. Tomlinson <ntomlin@*****.valdosta.peachnet.edu>

control over her actions. She always wears mirrorshades because her black
cybereyes usually freak out people not used to them.

his legs in a counterespionage operation in Milan (he is of Italian descent),
which was replaced with an experimental-grade cyberlimb. He is very quiet,
and has developed a wealth of decking skills. He always appears as an
insubstantial figure, dressed in the antiquated Doctor of Philosophy's
graduation robes, in the Matrix. He rarely meets people in reality, but is
an extremely competent decker, and uses those skills very well. He does not
trust easily, having lived within the military for so long. Human, 6'3"

Dumbhead (?) -- Martin Jennings <thomerc@******.cern.ch>
You have all heard about the smart Troll who played dumb so that peoplewould
not see just how intelligent he was, well this is NOT him. He actually
_likes_ the name "Dumbhead" and its meaning is lost to him,as is his real

race, he is, within reason, polite, punctual, correct in bearing etc.In fact
his demeanor is so polished that he would not be out of place at arich norm
dinner party. Generally he refrains from using street slang,although
occasionally it does slip out, espescially when under pressure.As a shaman

her daughter, Arial, but she is still very skilled and very dangerous when
she gets angry.

as such. She considers the time of the awakening to be "the SecondComing of
Nature Herself" and contributes its occurence to the effects ofChaos. Thus,
the Goddess Chaos is her guiding diety. Her spell list isacceptable, though
by no means impressive. She would rather spend her timestudying ancients
myths and magical lore. She has an extensive library.She is Human. She is

assense people's intentions to be greater than itactually is.

and Klien, and she's also the only elf of the group. An initiated combat
mage with more scars and battle wounds than most, she is powerful and usually
doesn't bother to hide her disdain for anyone either not of her team or
mundane or another race. She trusts only the rest of the team and enjoys
magically torturing people with overstimulation spells, etc. There are
rumors that she has danced almost toxic, but no proof as of yet.

Frostbite reached Vancouver where little understanding of city life and
western language got her in trouble with the law. Moved on to Seattle and
stayed, attracted by the challenges of the sprawl. Being resourceful, a
survival/tracking expert and SINless, Frostbite took to the shadows easily.

pretty good elven Fixer. Frypp Securities is an extremely low-key private

a front for his shadow buddies. Whenever they are down on their luck ,
Freddy can usually scrounge up an interesting little run. Intimately
connected in the arms business. No job too small, no fee too large.
GOLDWYRM (?) -- "SoCo" Baker aka SCOOTCH <bakersco@*******.msu.edu>
Who knows?? Last seen in a slum district of Seattle, this boy is
slightlyinsane and totally dangerous. At 6'6" and 250 lbs, he presents an
imposingfigure to any who try to jack him. Strictly a freelancer, he cares
little forother riggers or even the megacorporations and is always on the
move and alertfor oppurtunities, although Seattle forms his home base. Tries
to keep a lowprofile, but hey, don't we all? Alas, his penchant for
beautiful women justmay be his undoing in the future.....
Gabriel (?) -- Mike Tatroe <m_tatroe@*****.delta.edu>
A punk kid that ran away from home in the elvish realms and found himself on
the streets of Seattle. Now he's got some hardware and does what he can to
survive. He likes it loud and violent, so he is oft times confused for an
Ork because of his style. Wired reflexes and a Remington Roomsweeper are his
answers to most problems. Although he's violent and nervous he's been to
known to suffer from a white knight syndrome and definitely has a severe beef
with anything corporate. Right now he's trying to replace the Harley
streetbike that he lost on his last job. Tends to wear all black, smokes,
and talks real quiet.
Gad, Aaron (?) -- Ben Niemi <tails@*********.com>
President of Gad Security, a small security company dealing with

run ins with the New Orleans P.D. He stands 6'1", has black hair with a blue
tint, to give it the steel blue look. He prefers a black trenchcoat over an
old S.A.S. sweater and baggy urban camoflage pants, neatly tucked into his
highly shined black leather combat boots. He wears small round mirrorshades
that exude that "mad Scientist" look. A rigger and a decker, Gambit will
never back away from a challenge, and is not afraid of a little heat from an
Uzi IV, either.
Gangrene (?) -- Oscar Pizarro <dsbarbar@****.dpi.udec.cl>
Death by him has never been pleasant. Because of some kind of mental
imbalance, Gangrene has specialized in dealing single wounds that will
slowly, painfully and irrevocably kill his opponents. Studies in Chemistry
and Biology allow him to use nasty toxins and diseases in blade coatings.
Has been known to use fragmenting bullets made out of highly radioactive
material. Most of the time he behaves normally (though death is a recurrent
theme in his conversations) and gets along quite well with his buddy,
DawnHawk. Strong feelings towards Frostbite.
Gargoyle (?) -- Shawn P. Williams <sw2z+@******.cmu.edu>
An elf and decker in the Pittsburgh Metroplex. He has
from the shadow-scene as his pseudo-legitimate business interests consume
most of his time (he is a black-market coffee broker on an international
scale), but let's face it, he's an incurable net-junkie. His interest in a
group of young (and in his opinion, bungling) Pittsburgh runners gives him an
excuse to engage in 'fact finding'missions in the Matrix.
Gawk (?) -- Eric Brunsell <ericb@***.wisc.edu>
Gawk is an 18 yr. old Ork. He gained his nickname from his habit of
staringat attractive human women. He runs for the prestige (he thinkshe's a

ofcourse). He is welldressed, and "hip".

Genocide arrived in Seattle almost a year back, desperate and paranoid, seton
making a new life for himself in the outcast elven society of Tarislar.Slowly
but surly his presence has been noted in the shadow community, as hisjobs
have revealed competent skills performed with military precision. Heguards
his past closly, yet from his arrival, attitude and training it canbe deduced
that he is, or rather was, running from some military outfit. Latly his
paranoia has lessened though, and he has been seen working with Razor (see
seperate file). Another intresting fact about Genocide is that he seems to
have very good contacts within Tir Tairngire. What this meansis anybody's
Ghast (?) -- Charles Schneeflock <ecschnee@*******.syr.edu>
Ghast is an ork street samurai who grew up in a rather nasty section of the
Seattle barrens. He and his family suffered repeatedly at the hands of
Humanis and other racists. Consequently, he is ill-disposed towards most

(1.7 meters) but thickly built and still quite strong.

strict moral code

disgusted with what he perceived as the decay
of society and set out to make a difference in
the only way he felt worked. Highly principled,

rather you not be near him. For him, there is no

himself for the greater good.

time around more experienced netrunners (e.g. Doctor Doom), usually pestering
them with questions. Always enthusiastic about life, and perhaps a bit
naive,he makes an interesting contrast with Jack Hack's inherent cynicism and
Doom's rather grim personage. His inherent curiousity often overrides his
common sense, which can get him into situations from which he has a hard time
extricating himself. His Matrix Icon is the 7UP Spot from their advertisment

Division. If he ever finds out/sees Durandal, he's going to throw a fit,
perhaps even turn him in. He is basically loyal to Ares, but very much a
free spirit. He sees nothing wrong with trashing anyone who tries to get on
his case or affect him somehow. He appears as a thin man, dressed in a black
cloak, with a high-compression crossbow loaded with a wooden stake.

picks up a story on events in the shadows. The true identity of Herald is a

whose members all wear an unusual grey set of robes that totally covers their
skin except for a small strip around the eyes. He is a powerful martial
artist and likely a physical adept as well, although this has not been
verified. He tends to come and go as he sees fit, even into supposedly

against the corporations of the world.

Howl (?) -- Keith Ammann <Prospero@***.portal.com>
An idiot-savant Coyote street shaman. Howl is the intellectual
of an 8-year-old and thinks of her totem as an invisible friend. Her command
of magic is purely instinctive and impulsive. In sharp contrast to her
brother, Burroughs, she is ecstatic and grateful for the simple gift of
existence. She has no demands or expectations of the world. Unfortunately
she is also incapable of taking care of herself, thus her dependence upon
her brother. Slightly built and extremely quick, with a wild and unkempt

parkshis van, in which he lives. Wears whatever he can find.
