Some quick character profiles

Mostly spoiler free, but I thought I’d share.

Name: Adrian Richards

Other Names: Renraku (online), Ade.

Age: 19

Occupation: Barista, Freelance World-builder/Web Designer/AI Programmer.

Birthplace: Silverfall.

Hair: Dark brown in untidy spikes, neon green fringe. A few very fine braids at the back that are hidden in strings of round beads.

Eyes: Naturally green. Later, magenta.

Height and Build: Around 5’8”, fit but not overly muscled from a decent amount of excersise but a somewhat scanty diet.

Adrian is a good natured young man, quick to smile and with a continual desire to make people happy. He is easy going and friendly most of the time, both online and in reality. Below the surface, Adrian is a little less bubbly, and some might claim he has a habit of avoiding dealing with the real issues when it comes to himself. He is deeply idealistic and often seems to refuse to accept the rather colder reality life provides. He sleeps little, tending to run together rather too many all-nighters on a regular basis. He’s rarely seen without a pair of net goggles perched on his forehead, and those that know him in both realms have remarked how similar he looks in each.

Seeming to pay just as much attention to the online world as real life (if not more), Adrian has made more money doing freelance work than he gets for his official job, though most of this appears to be blown on the latest shiny piece of tech or software, meaning he still ends up barely scraping the rent for his small apartment, and lives off tea and instant ramen. Renraku is a rather known figure in the Atlantian community, having done a lot of work for the community as a whole, committed a rather impressive piece of cracking in his youth, and having links to the WhiteCrown Court. Their leader, Gyger, was a hero, mentor and a friend to him. Despite his love and skill for computer related endeavours, Adrian goes about his day job with a drive few people would expect from an underpaid beverage seller, and will make you the best cup of tea or coffee you’ve ever had.

Name: Vitorio Relik

Other Names: Vito (most common)

Age: 22

Occupation: Numerous part time jobs.
Birthplace: Silverfall

Hair: Dark but currently bleach blond with blue tips.

Eyes: Grey.

Height and Build: 6’2”, square shouldered but not massive.

Vito has known Adrian since they were kids, and his parents took his younger friend in after his mother and father were killed in the nanoplages. Consequently Vito has a bit of a big brotherly attitude towards him. Much more grounded that Adrian, Vito is down to earth and reasonable. He’s also much more focused on the real world, online things not particularly interesting him, and he doesn’t quite see what all the fuss is about.

Vito can be fairly dry at times, and a little pessimistic but tends to remain inoffensive most of the time. He usually works at least three jobs at a time, and is somewhat more practical than Adrian. Vito doesn’t have any particular goals that he would admit to, other than perhaps getting a promotions that would mean he could cut down his number of employers.

Name: Icarus

Other Names: Unknown, he never discloses his street name

Age: 23

Occupation: Undisclosed.
Birthplace: Assumed to be Reymurai.

Hair: According to his avatar, short and ginger.

Eyes: His avatar’s are green.

Height and Build: His avatar is about 6′ and quite skinny.

Icarus is an Atlantis user and friend of Adrian’s… Or at least it’s assumed he’s a friend, as the man keeps a close hold of his street identity. Icarus is a skilled programmer but a very closed person, even for someone who only communicates through avatar his emotions are veiled. He tends towards the cryptic and generally carries an air of vague interest in everything, often detracted. However, when he does set his mind to a task he is passionate and poised. Occasionally he will display flashes of compassion, and is a good ally to those he actually cares about. It is this and Icarus’ undeniable skill and access to information that keeps him and Renraku on good terms. However, although Icarus claims he is one of the few people he trusts, Adrian has still not been given the privilege of working out how the man ticks.

Icarus’ avatar bears stylised wings of white light, and from his occasion musings on the security systems of the corps, his alias might prove rather well chosen.

La. Subject to change and so on. Vito especially needs development. And hopefully Icarus won’t come across so much as token mysterious guy in the actual story. Stuff and things, yep.
