Spark in combat gear


A product of the 'Newman' project, orchestrated by Dr. Spencer of 'Emerging Futures', itself a subsidiary of NeoNET specialising in biotech. Violently extracted from corporate care at the age of three by a team of shadowrunners who didn't expect their objective to be a child.

She ended up in the care of an orphanage in Redmond rather than in the custody of another corp, maybe as an act of rebellion by one of the runners against a lying employer, maybe one of them felt sorry for this little child due for a life of corporate servitude.

Whatever the reasons, she was raised on stories of her Shadowrunner 'parents' who ended up either captured or killed by the corps. And, as it turns out, she very much took after her 'parents', even if she never knew them at all.

Appearance and Style

  • Physical: 5'9 lightly built woman with obvious cybernetics up the back of her head, and medium length fiberoptic hair, normally set to black. Both arms & both legs are replaced with bionics. 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 (Original) , 4 (Colour) , 5
  • Astral form: An indistinct female form, burning & pulsing with rainbow fire, like it's about to explode. The left arm of her aura has been very subtly marked, like it's been carefully taken apart, and reconstructed.
  • Astral signature: A small smoldering rift in the astral.
  • Matrix persona: A black silhouette that leaves silvery streaks in the air wherever it walks.
  • Styles and symbols known for: Her mentors mask warps space around her into strange supernatural angles, generates jumping electrical arcs, and makes the air taste metallic, when she draws magic.


  • Confident, and maybe a bit unprofessional. Not a quiet person by any means, when she's not being sneaky.


  • Make more & more money to afford cool gadgets, nice food, drugs, 'n stuff.
