Backstory

Born in a small town outside of Chicago, Jacob Holloway had a relatively good childhood. His parents were kind to him and while their life was stressful they never let it bring them down. When he was 5, his parents grabbed him from his kindergarten and took him west and wouldn't tell him why. They traveled for several days and finally settled down in Denver.

His father got a job as a security guard in the Aztlan sector. They were just getting ready to send him for testing and to a secondary school when Ghostwalker returned. In a night, his whole world shattered and his father was taken from him. His distraught mother took him and fled the city to LA where some of her family were living.

He attended middle and high school there but without a SIN he was unable to apply for any programs or special testing. He was decently well liked in school and did well in sports and other extracurriculars but with only middling grades he was never noted particularly. One day on the way home from school he heard a rumbling sound and was thrown out of the bus he was riding in. He woke up two days later on an island after LA separated from the mainland. This kept happening to him was all he could think of. His mother was very weak after the earthquake and he tearfully left her to go raise money to pay for her medical care.

He moves to Boston but can't find work that pays well enough legally. He quickly got sucked into the underworld after making a few deals for local gangs and the mob. He was making more money than he ever had but he still wanted more. After he broke a few knees and made a name for himself, they offered him something else. He was offered a job on a shadow running crew. He didn't know it at the time but he was sucked into the life for good. They took him out to the country for a few months and taught him everything they knew. Shooting, Parachuting, sneaking, and how to talk your way through guards when you need to. His crew made a decent living which he mostly sent to LA to take care of his mother. After a long job where he was out in the bush for a week or more he came home and felt dread before he even walked in the door. A letter left in the mail for him said the words he most feared to hear. Your mother has passed away.

He was crushed but it was something not totally unexpected. After his disappointment came another crushing blow. Sarafina, their face announced she was giving up the shadowrunner life and she was going to move west. He cursed silently as the only other competent member of the team left. The rest of the team was insistent on getting right back out to another job. He was dragged along on a job that was a trap at best and a suicide mission at worst. He stayed outside on overwatch with a tarp and a vehicle nearby rather than go to the objective. When the bomb blew up he was caught in the radius but his preparations saved his life, barely. Nearly dead, he survived because the fire inside of him burned hotter than the fire outside of him. Pulling himself out of the area, he sold most of his possessions and moved to Seattle to try to find some goddamn professionals to work with.

He found out that Sarafina was in the city and she set him up with the organization as well as putting him in touch with his other contacts. On his first day of official work he got the nickname phoenix because he came back reborn from a fire. He now hopes to make some money and regain some sense of normalcy and prove that his misfortune is just that and not some sort of cosmic bad luck.

Appearance and Style

Dresses fashionably and well but it's hard to remember exactly what he was wearing. His fashion sense is very understated. He looks like most elves.

Personality

An easygoing but professional man who trusts anyone who proves their worth. He is polite but distant at first.

  • Always looking to improve his skills, gear, and characteristics.
