Concept

Corporate Espionage Specialist

A cunning manipulator with combat training and a few additional spy skills added to the mix.

Tropes

Decoy Damsel: Serenity is particularly skilled at playing the "hapless Princess" to lure in unsuspecting marks.

Femme Fatale Spy: By any means necessary, Serenity's play book covers many of the classics.

Loveable Rouge: "Now; I did a job. Got nothing but trouble since I did it, not to mention more than a few unkind words as regard to my character. So let me make this abundantly clear: I do the job... and then I get paid."

Hooks

  • Serenity is an "In-house" runner for Horizon.
  • Mother and three sisters still live in Hong Kong, hasn't seen or heard from them in years

Notable Qualities

SINner (Limited Corporate): A gilded collar was the only to escape the slums of Hong Kong.

Addiction, Mild: Alcohol: Everybody has their vice. Serenity's is hard liquor, top shelf.

Distinctive Style (Perfect 10): The double-edged sword of flawless looks, you never really forget women like Serenity.

Serenity is a relative newcomer to the runner scene, having recently arrived from Hong Kong.

Backstory

One time, when Serenity was a child living in a burned-out apartment in Hong Kong, her single mother told her to use her words instead of hitting. Unlike almost every other child, Serenity took this advice to heart. Whether she's squeezing a few extra nuyen out of Mr. Johnson, convincing an Ork security guard to let her past, or persuading the middle manager to leave his job for greener grass at some other corp, Serenity knows how to use her words and is a charmer and a persuader first and foremost. She also knows, though, that words sometimes fail, so for good measure she carries a few well-hidden guns... She may not have as quite a deadly aim with them as she does with words, but she's still deadly enough.

Serenity "works" as a contract negotiator for the Seattle office of Horizon. She was given a Limited SIN under the name of Julia Ling. She keeps her "day job" seperate from her shadow jobs but will occasionally take jobs from Horizon with the understanding that it never leads back to them. Essentially Serenity is an in house runner for Horizon, but she knows she will be cast out at the first sign of trouble and is always looking for her next safe harbor.

Appearance and Style

  • Physical: A well-dressed and well polished physique.
  • Astral form: Mudane, healthy elven female with no augmentation (cyber or otherwise).
  • Astral signature: None.
  • Matrix persona: Female dressed in a emerald green dress inspired by traditional Chinese fashion.
  • Styles and symbols known for: Serenity is the "Perfect 10" guys love to talk about. This can cause unwanted attention at times.

Personality

Serenity is the classic espionage operative. Intelligent and charming, even seductive when the situation demands it. If the soft approach fails Serenity also has extensive combat training in firearms, hand to hand combat and interrogation techniques with the ruthlessness of someone who grew up in the slums.

Motivations

Serenity grew up in abject poverty and hated her existence. She has vowed to never again be without and will do whatever it takes to keep it. She resents the collar that Horizon has on her but knows it was the only way to escape her old life.
