Appearance

How do I appear? Or what do I look like?

My son's friend referred to me as MILF once when he thought I couldn't hear. All my upgrades have kept me fit and trim, which counts for a lot, I think. I'm also a cliche: five foot two, eyes so blue. My naturally blond hair was edited to hard black in my first round of upgrades. I quite like it. I let it grow long of course, because it is too hard to cut.

If I had to use one word to describe my looks, I'd say "delicate" fits reasonably well. Small nose, small chin, small mouth, small eyes, small ears.

Oh, and I turned 42 on December 1st, 2033.

Backstory

I spent the last 15 years working to eradicate or defend against diseases of all sorts, especially weaponized vectors. In the process of learning to prevent, defend, repair, and recover, I have developed the ability to create, weaponize, and distribute vectors that could wipe out the world. The CDC was my last 'employer', starting 6 years ago. They held me hostage by using my family as leverage.

The PD recruited me 9 years ago. I accepted upgrades on the condition that my family be made part of the family. This was a controversial move at the time; most PD members did not have families, or kept their membership secret from them. After I was accepted, families were eligible for integration as 'Associates' who benefit from upgrades while being restricted from reproducing. Many of my family have been accepted as full members after demonstrating their worth to the PD.

I accepted a seat on the Council four years ago. I supported Manwë when he wanted to severely limit the reproduction of homo sapiens. He lost my support last year when he fell into a more radical stance. That said, I think Varda's position is inadequate, and perhaps a little cowardly.

Storm and I are close friends, despite our political differences. We both have a hacker's mindset, constantly looking for ways to break the world, and then figuring out how to stop someone else from doing just that.

Upgrades

Nanowire Hair: All the hair on my body is infused with a matrix of nanowires. On my body it is the finest invisible blond and quite short. Just as well since I really can't shave it. In the 5 years since I made the upgrade I have produced 22m of nanostring (60 nanowires per nanothread, 60 nanothreads per nanostring). It is strong and light enough to make a space elevator - if we can grow enough of it.

Homo Celestes: My upgrades need upgrading, but as they stand I am free from all autoimmune diseases, can't get fat, have surprising strength, and acute senses.

Advanced Bio Containment Team

The PD created a 34 person ABC Team of researchers and field personnel to work on ways that chemo- and bio-weapons could be used against homo celestes - and how to defend against these weapons, of course. Taylor has lead this team in secret, and from a distance.

High Concept: We are not paranoid about biochemical attacks on HC... We're just extraordinarily thorough and devious and prepared.
