Ex-ganger who turned cyber-criminal after Crash 2.0 and his emergence as a technomancer.


"Up Close and Personal"- Unlike most Matrix specialists, Blackout finds being in the front lines quite exciting and is always itching for a fight.

"Exploding Keyboards"- Blackout enjoys breaking electronics in the most dramatic fashion possible, and is quite good at it.

"On the Lam"- He's convinced that everyone is out to get him, so he moves around. A lot.

"Any Feedback is Good Feedback"- He derives a strange enjoyment from biofeedback damage- claims it "gets the neurons flowing". He's an active participant in the Matrix equivalent of fighting arenas.

"Just Some Good Headware"- Blackout does not like to divulge his status as a technomancer, and claims to have an implanted cyberdeck.


  • Was one of the perpetrators of an attempted robbery of a Vory drug shipment that went horribly wrong, ending with him fleeing the scene and almost everyone there arrested by Knight Errant
  • Spent much of the past several years on smaller jobs in the NAN, attempting to lay low.

Notable Qualities

  • Addiction (Mild) Hot-Sim VR
  • Combat Junkie
  • Paranoia


Before Crash 2.0, Nicholas Cabrera was an unremarkable ganger on the streets of Los Angeles. After the crash and a year or so learning how to properly use the matrix, his gang had a meteoric rise as his new aptitude for cybercrime gave them the advantage in street fights. Under the new street name Blackout, Cabrera served as some of the best matrix support any gang in Los Angeles had (which admittedly wasn't saying much), disarming enemies before they even arrived. However, Cabrera's status as a technomancer was obvious to everyone- he didn't have the money for a cyberdeck and had also never shown any interest in the Matrix. These signs, combined with his rather unsubtle style of electronic warfare, eventually led to unwanted attention from GOD, the police, and half the criminals in Los Angeles. He fled California for the NAN, where he spent the next several years dodging the law and everyone looking for technomancers, and doing work for small-time shadowrunners in the area. He's currently in Seattle, but moves frequently.

Appearance and Style

  • Meat: Out of shape, average size for an ork, with a perpetual scowl.
  • Astral form: N/A
  • Astral signature: N/A
  • Matrix persona: A dark thundercloud, with lightning crackling inside it.
  • Styles and symbols known for: Known as aggressive and loud. Datasteals tend to be smash-and-grabs for him. Carries a silver-plated Ares Predator.


Blackout is brash and destructive at the best of times, and can be difficult to get along with. He does remain loyal to those who have proven to be valuable allies.


Blackout runs for only one reason: To get away from the people he believes are chasing him. Once he has enough money, he can lay low and enjoy himself for the rest of his life.
