Appearance

Vögell is a medium height (5'9) medium build, wiry, harsh looking man in his early to mid thirties. Fairly pale skin and black, obviously synth hair coupled with solid polished-steel eyes, and iridescent greyish patches on the backs of his hands give him a very 'augmented' look. Upon close inspection, these patches also cover his shoulders, upper arms, forearms, upper back, kidneys, outer thighs, and shins in a manner resembling the construction of lorica segmentata.

He wears clothing in dark shades of grey, with an ankle length black matte leather cape covering his right side, and preventing easy visibility as to anything he may be wearing or carrying on that side.

Backstory

Vögell is a Shadowrun avatar of Droo, with a typical-ish dystopian backstory , losing his parents as collateral damage to an ongoing shadowrun as a pre-teen; existing scavenging and hiding on the streets for years, subsumed into a gang and taught to be muscle. Met his first lover in the gang, Megacorp broke up the gang with a heavy assault team. 30 fatalities, 8 escapees - including V and his lover; They stole every thing they could from the wreckage of the gang hideout to pay for black market cyberware upgrades; he made it through implantation - she didn't. He's spent years since doing jobs, getting more upgrades, hunting down those who broke his gang (and his life, by his lights) ... then hunting down those responsible for his parents' deaths.

He's got anti-ballistic plating implanted over every functionally possible area of his body (causing the iridiscent/grey/almost oily appearance). Cybernetic eyes with infra/ultra vision and zoom capabilities. WIred nerves - his nervous system is largely artificial , allowing him speed and reaction times not considered normal, with a few skills hardwired into the nerves as he's purchased them, not ever having had time to learn them, and an implanted radio behind his left ear.

Amoral, vicious, completely unconcerned with anything except his own status and comfort, his name - although not current appearance - is well known in enforcement circles - law and otherwise - due to his first half decade of activity - and it is *feared* at the highest levels of the more powerful megacorps, as he's the likely candidate to be hired by a rival for... removals.

He does experience frequent bouts of guild - almost existential dread - because he ocassionally realizes that the amoral bastards who offed his parents as collateral damage .... he's allowed them to turn HIM into an amoral bastard who leaves collateral damage behind - but for the most part, he's reached a point as an urban predator where he's less concerned about the outcome, as over the years, he's found he can actually lose himself in and enjoy the process.

Notes:

  • lacks good/evil framwork and judges based on self-benefit
  • Is the VR Alter Ego for Droo.

We opened the session with 10,000 Splodyrats (tm) and 1,000 Terminators headed towards our cadre of heroes near the drop point. Q hacked into the rats and handed the keys over to the clanks. It explained that
2034-03-15 1811EDT Find Alternate Passage Droo heard Google's warning and took off, flying through the scorching wind and glowing tunnel in the blink of an eye. Vernon complained about the heat, but was through the hellish glow fast enough to avoid damage. A hundred metres more down the seaway tunnel there was a corrodor to the south. Accor
2034-03-15 1811EDT Everybody Has Incoming Outside, a host of 'sploderats - spaced out far enough to make picking them off a one-by-one the only option - became visible as they crossed the roadway between the drop site and the mountain. They were heading toward Taylor and team. HC soldiers advanced to positions of cover, but there are not en
2034-03-15 1810EDT Beam Weapon Droo cleared the corrodor connecting the 200m long passage to the main gun to Hall 17 by flying above the drones and then dropping grenades on the way back to the HC troops. They went off with a satisfying 'boom', sending a powerful shockwave up the sloping passage, but with a cross section of 5m x
2034-03-15 1808EDT Scouting Droo scouted ahead. He found a hall filled with looming death in the form of assault robots. Examining their positions, Droo realized he could fly above the the octocopers and below the roof with a comfortable margin of safety. When he reached the end of the corrodor he started back, dropping grenad
2034-03-15 1805EDT Mountain Assault The HC² and 288 HC assault on the mountain was costly, even for super-soldiers with a slowest running speed of 40km/h. 13 died on the way up, caught by heavy machine gun fire, mortar shells, and various robotic attackers. This left 275 to assault the base. The four HC2 showed their extraordinary ca

2034-03-15 1757EDT Motherly Advice Droo's phone rang. It was his mother. He was so used to just 'hearing' radio traffic that it took him a moment to realize he had to answer on purpose.

2034-03-15 1745EDT Chewie is fired on The attack was a surprise to everyone on board. Chewie dodged most of the damage, but had to work hard, including using the BUMPS to stabilize the passengers. The entire CAF Board were in the Council of Sophants meeting, but six of them were physically in Chewie. Willow, Sutton, AJ,

Pops stops melting. Mother stays sedated, though her arm is repaired rapidly with micro-surgical bots, nanowire meshes, and ultrasonic calipers (commonly called the sonic screwdriver).

There is more to copy here as raw material.

2034-03-15 0500EDT Biggs and Droo mind meld Using the Distributed Mind Protocol that the Tetras use, Biggs reached out to Droo. Droo was startled, to say the least, but did meld minds. The collaboration was stable enough for an hour of creative weapons engineering.
2034-03-15 0400EDT Biggs gets his wings In an effort to get Droo to New York more quickly, Biggs chops off his own wings while in flight. This lets him reach Mach 1.7. This caused a completely predicable set of reactions in Bigg's solitary passenger, but surprisingly, didn't require a change of underwear after all.
