Summary for GMs

Basic Info

Male Elven Stealth Decker

Afiliations

Allies: Ciarniellos

Foes: NeoNET

Concept

Ex-NeoNET Spider, driven from the corp after a Shadowrun left the corp in a tight spot. Cowardly from decades spent in the corp life, but has developed rather impressive skills in the Matrix as a result.

Notable Qualities

  • How do I hack the Matrix so effectively? Because I helped build it : Codeslinger: Hack on the Fly + Practice, Practice, Practice (Computer), Prime Datahaven Membership (JackPoint)
  • Real Life is Unpredictable, hence it Scares Me: Combat Paralysis + Designated Omega + Social Appearance Anxiety 3
  • Emulating the Machine: Exceptional Attribute: Logic + Analytical Mind + Profile + Memory Palace + Empathetic Listener

Background

Backstory

Harold Fulmar was a security spider for NeoNET for 30 odd years before a disastrous shadowrun against their HQ forced him to flee to the Shadows himself for fear of NN's retribution against him for failing.

Appearance and Style

  • Meat: Tall, skinny elven man with slightly prominent worry lines. Always sharply dressed, carrying a briefcase containing his Sony CIY in most occasions. He has recently acquired a rather formidable guard dog in the form of a Neoteny-afflicted Fenrir Hound named Odin
  • Astral form/sig: None
  • Matrix persona: An American Goldfinch, styled in form of an Audubon plate. Marks appear as golden feathers.
  • Styles and symbols known for: Bird icons, extreme cowardice

Personality

A polite, if timid man, Finch has only recently become accustomed to the more unusual facets of the criminal world, such as more than a token population of Orcs and Trolls. However in his 'professional' work, Finch is far more ruthless, using subterfuge to aid his team in the Matrix, and planning his Data Spikes to end his opponents in quick shots.

Motivations

  • Fear of being discovered by NeoNET
  • Desire to continually improve his Matrix skills

Goals

  • Get revenge on Ethis McGain, his former superior at NeoNET, who was the man responsible for pinning the responsibility for the Shadowrun on him, and leading to the termination order that forced Finch to flee to the Shadows.
  • Retrieve his 40+ year pension fund from NeoNET's coffers; he earned every nuyen of it and deserves it.

Great Deeds

  • Slayer of Matrix Dragons
  • Handler of Fenrir Wolves
  • Transitively Killed a Real Dragon (Thanks Baylife)

Titles

  • The Great Seattleite Savior of Knowledge
