Sara Pshenichnikova immigrated to Seattle at the young age of 7. She quickly adapted to UCAS life, and blended in with relative ease. Her only remining Russian influences were her mother and younger brother. She is unaware of the motivation of her family to leave Russia, does not remember much about her father (outside of small, personal memories), and was oblivious to the kinds of people her mother associated with.
It would be during her adolescence that she would be shaped into the woman she is now. She discovered her love for The Matrix and electronic hardware, and became interested in pursuing a career in those fields. She worked diligently outside of school to learn as much as possible, and it soon developed form a hobby, into an obsession. And thus, Sigma would be born as her online identity. She became so caught up in the online wold, that she didn't see what was going on at home. Her mother had started using BTLs to escape her life, and the addiction was growing, until one day in Sara's 15th year of life, she found her mother OD'd... her brain fried from BTL usage.
This shocked her, and made her take a strong personal stance against such mind-altering substances. Unfortunately, this caused her to alienate certain people in her life... both in meat space and in the 'Trix. Sara also had to start finding ways to make some income to support her and her brother, while still being able to pursue her hobby and schooling. So she started to offer basic Matrix security services to local store owners... usually bartering her services just for food. To make some extra cash for her tech, she started dabbling in ID forgery, and other low-key tech crimes for the local community.
She was so focused on making money and her schooling, that she didn't have much time doing anything else. And that's how her second tragedy struck. She had failed to pick up the signs of her younger brother, following their mother down the same hole of despair. On her graduation, she received the call... her brother had gone, much like their mother.
She started spending her free time trying to find the monsters that were giving this sickness... this disease, to the people around her. She found the gang, confronted them unsuccessfully, and it cost her dearly. She lost her left hand from the leader's Katana. It would be almost a year later... a year filled with scheming for vengeance, for justice, that it would be taken from her. A team of Shadowrunners hit the gang's hideout on their own agenda. Their decker had fried himself getting them inside, but Sara hacked her way in, and helped the runners complete their run, much to their surprise. After they had finished their job, one of them thanked her, and told her a place where should could meet them if she wanted.
She nervously showed up at the location, and after some stern reproaches, and begrudging thanks, the runners shared the basics with of running with her, and would put her into contact with their fixer, Mr Shen. They parted ways, with the possibility of running into each other again. So Sigma was officially born, and started her journey to protect the people from the dangers of drugs, especially BTLs, and provide justice for them when possible.

Appearance and Style
Sigma is a petite Caucasian woman of Russian Descent. She tries to maintain a reasonably casual and non-descript look most of the time. She has the look of someone who stays indoors mostly, although she does have a small amount of basic fitness.
Her hair is dyed black, with a blue hidden underside... such that if she styles her hair to the right, it shows as mainly blue. Styled in any other direction, it shows only as black. She tries to show off the blue only when running.
Sigma also sports a black matte cyberhand on her left arm. She lost her hand in a gang-related incident. She still harbours a little shame for her hand, and so keeps it covered with gloves as often as possible.
Clothing wise she prefers to wear comfortable and practical clothing. Boots, pants, sleeveless shirts, vests, and gloves. Usually black, grey, white or blue (but can vary).
Sigma has a very easy going personality. She is patient, understanding, and friendly. This all changes around gangers, drug dealers/users, and especially BTL dealers/users... where she becomes incredibly vocal and emotional.
