[[Rebecca]] :: [[Rebecca Blackburn]]

Aspects
High Concept: Ambitious Madame / Information Broker of Luna
Trouble: You fuck with me? You find out what "fucked" really means.
Aspects:
  • Glam Or Die: I am the image and make an impression with never a stitch out of place.
  • Grounded: My seed money was laundered, not clean, and the Chinese bureaucrats who 'put up venture capital' still think I owe them a pound of flesh. About once per session I get a 'polite request' to provide a favour of some kind to someone (3L Common, Inconvenient).
  • I Like Being On Top: Money is nice. Influence is good. Leverage is wonderful. Fame is glorious.
Fate Points
Refresh: 2 Current Total 2
Approaches
Careful Clever Flashy Forceful Quick Sneaky
+4 +3 +5 0 +1 +1
Sophant Characteristics
  • Augments are people who have altered themselves significantly from baseline for their species, or the specific alterations they have made to their bodies and minds. The most common augments are mechanical/cybernetic, neural, genetic, or chemical. Augments begin with 24R for approaches and abilities, 4R of normal Refresh, and 4L for their Unstable Augment limitation (28R/4L). They can take up to 44R/20L. This kind of min/max character is likely to be very fragile.
  • Unstable Augment: Every time you alter your aspects, abilities, or resilience using augments, there is a chance that the change gets messed up. This is a 4 point limitation (uncommon, damaging) so the DC for the roll is 4. The player can use any approach to overcome this DC as long as they can justify it narratively. The final roll is /roll 4f DC-4 +Approach - as long as it is narratively justified. A failed roll adds the aspect Unstable to one of the character's augments - not necessarily the new or changed one.
Stunts
  • Starstruck: +2 to Flashily create an advantage over a person or a group when I’m performing for them.
  • Strong Leadership: +2 to Flashily create an advantage for my team. (/roll 4f +5Flash -4DC)
  • Polymath: Once per session I can draw on my experience as an actor to demonstrate basic competence in an unexpected skill or domain.
Magic: Spells and Powers
Augmentation: Genetic and Cybernetic
  • Forever Young: Cutting edge / not quite illegal anti-aging treatments provide prolonged youth and vigour. Her profoundly energetic beauty (+2 Flashy) and dramatically increased attention to detail (+2 Careful) have projected her into the upper social and economic strata of Luna Alpha and made her known to powerful people on the ground.[1] I need occasional booster treatments to maintain my vitality (any time I roll a natural -4 for anything). Each day I go without the booster means a -1 to whichever Approach is highest - and noticeable aging. Treatment takes 8h and is billed as 'a spa day'.
Damage Resistance and Healing
Teams:
  • Exhale: The theatre company, including 27 performers, production, costume, sets, design, etc. Flashy+3, Clever+1. Many Hands: +2. Refresh: 1. Troubles:
  • Diva: Sometimes one actor will try to outshine the others, causing friction and weakening overall performance.
  • Fucking Actors: The stage manager and techs are often frustrated by the antics of the self-interested actors.
  • Companions: When you work at The Office you take 'customer service' right through 'yes, and', and into new realms of satisfaction. Each of the 45 Companions is - for a little while - your best friend and best lover. They are highly trained escorts, often involving sex. Sneaky+3, Clever+3, Flashy+3. Many Hands: +3. Refresh: 2.
  • Bad Mojo: Many companions have dark pasts, an sometimes traumatic memories interfere with their work.
  • Prime Directive: Companions are trained to pleasure their clients, and sometimes that directive overshadows the overall tactic that Rebecca may have been aiming for.
  • Just Too Good: The client or group to be affected sometimes gets too drawn in by the companion, and believes the affection to be 100% heartfelt.
  • Safe and Secure: Blackburn Inc. is filled with vulnerable artists who need to feel safe and protected to do their best. Bad things don't happen on our watch - and if they do? They don't goddamn have the chance to happen twice to anyone ever again. This team of 12 provides protection and investigation as required. Forceful+3. Many Hands: +1. Refresh: 1.
  • Bad Boys: Sometimes the team uses a teensie bit more force than is warranted.
Stuff
  • The Office: Home base for the Companions, this aetherial building would be impossible in higher gravity. A glorious complex of gardens, boudoirs, specialty rooms, and living quarters. Extended families of many Companions live here too. (Cost 1R)
  • Ambassador Theatre: This amazing space can be configured to seat the capacity population of the colony for a show - but it can be rapidly set up for dozens of small, simultaneous performances. It is also the Luna Alpha conference centre. Rebecca was granted a Artist's 99 year lease at $1 a year by the Duchess Luna (paid in advance). That certainly helps the bottom line. (Cost 1R)
  • Millionaire: (1234FS) Ready access to enough money that buying a car to throw away is no issue. Ready cash in the μB100000/B0.1 range. You have enough money to buy your way out of many of life's issues. In many cases you don't need to make a purchase: your wealth works for you to open helpful doors and seal damaging portals. In other cases a 'donation' or strategic purchase can grease the wheels. (Cost 4R)
Stress: Mental Max 3 Stress: Physical Max 3

Consequences (Max 6)

6: Manchurian Candidate: Obey one direct order from me and then forget you have obeyed. Using this reduces the consequence by one slot unless I spend a fate point or equivalent. If an enemy is taken out they become a thrall of the CC and will do their bidding willingly until deprogrammed.

Appearance

Looks like she is in her mid 20s but is actually in her late 40s. Always dresses to the nines - trying to impress and command attention. Short ruby red hair, medium height (in heels), and slim. A classic knockout.

Backstory

Rebecca was a minor TV celebrity, but after those 15 minutes, the work dried up and her marriage ended. She looked for more opportunities on Luna and found them. She took over management of their theatre company, and then found herself playing madam to the people plying the sex trade on Luna; more to improve those conditions than to exploit it for profit. Her brothel is called "Inara's" and she refers to her workers as companions. The theatre has proven to be a money sink, which prompted Rebecca to connect with less savoury contacts back on earth and help smuggle information in peoples' DNA. She is hoping to make inroads with the new park / Luna Beta. Good opportunity for all of her lines of business.

On the evening of 2034-03-01, after returning to Luna Alpha, Rebecca was brainwashed by agents of the Cyborg Collective.

2034-02-28 1800LT A Visit To The Jade Rabbit Warren Rebecca braced herself for the increasing gravity as the APC was pushed down the linear accelerator. The last time she's ridden one was a few years ago, and it had been unpleasant, to say the least. "This launch will be a civilian Gs, ma'am," Dale said. "You will feel it, but it won't even be u
2034-02-28 1330LT Kevin Is Impressive Dale knew he didn't like or trust Kevin before. This cemented his opinion. "Get into position," he barked. Dex, Syd, and Rebecca were clearly confused about what was happening, and were ignoring the glowing lines arcing over to a large concrete building. He turned toward them to reit
2034-02-28 1300LT Kevin Is Impressed Kevin couldn't remember the last time he's had this much fun. TALOS was 100% fucking awesome. "Listen Corporal," he said, cutting off the large man with a sharp gesture. "This isn't my first ride. I know you have a schedule to keep. Right now? It waits." He pointed his heavily armoured arm

It goes South. The only other structure on the moon is the Chinese base at the South Pole. Kevin racked his mind for where
2034-02-28 0920LT Emergency Community Support About 100 people donned EVA Work Suits or Civilian Armour and rushed to the scene. There were few serious injuries. Heat and radiation burns were most common, along with lace problems from the EMP. Dex and Syd were both a bit addled by the magnetic field used to contain the plasma. [
2034-02-28 0915LT GTFO it's gonna blow The plasma weapon that fired off emanated from below the house. It blasted a hole upwards into the roof at the edge of the biodome, excavating almost 100m of concrete and rock. The top of the biodome is over 500m down, so the chance of loss of pressure was remote. Still, emergency procedures were tr

2034-02-26 1530LT I just breathed human remains Earlier, Mycroft informed Syd that Brian and Phil were both missing for over an hour, but that he was not allowed to investigate their disappearance until they were off the network for three hours.

2034-02-26 1000LT Spearfishing A melodious tone drew Rebecca’s attention to her left. Shauna’s AR projection was standing two metres away, seamlessly integrated into the environment at Umbra. She was panicking while she waited for Rebecca to answer. Rebecca could understand that: Shauna appeared to be covered
2034-02-26 0930LT After Breakfast Realizations The three of them compare notes on the events of the past night.

Rebecca raises the concern that Dexter "saw through Syd's disguise" and then asked probing questions about what was going on. She believes she got him to back off.

Kevin is not so sure. He thinks Dexter must be a spy, planted at Umbr
2034-02-26 0900LT Breakfast planning Kevin woke from a surprisingly good night's sleep. The bed was large and just the right firmness. The covers were heavy enough to feel like a hug, and the air was perfectly cool. He completed his morning ablutions quickly. His AR informed him that Rebecca was on her way to a large, buffet style
2034-02-25 1730LT This is how you stealth “Follow me,” Syd said, still wearing Kevin’s form. His lace picked up his desire to go to the big private room, and taking partial control of his body, started walking to the passageway through the aquarium. They were all still in the privacy field, so they couldn’t see anything around them.
2034-02-25 1710LT Containment is Attempted “I don’t get it,” Syd said. The lace-enforced calm left his voice flat. “What’s the problem with Kevin Cahn knowing Rebecca Blackburn?” Kevin noted Syd’s unnatural stillness, and his alert but emotionless expression. It was creepy. He considered how much to tell them about his h
2034-02-25 1700LT What are YOU doing here Rebecca saw Shauna sitting on a bench as she approached Umbra. Aun hopped up as she pushed her bike into a rack, and air kissed her boss on both sides. “It’s been a while since you had a double-Umbra day, isn’t it?” Her voice was low and rich, somewhat at odds with her short lean fra
2034-02-25 1500LT Rebecca has a concern Rebecca carefully concealed her anxiety and anger as she pedalled lightly down the broad, open-air cobbled road beside the Henry River.
