Character Information

Summary

Agent of the Federal Office of Homeland Security and member of the Special Support Group. Has decided to take a leave of indefinite length after an incident at S-K. With the help of his mentor spirit Dragonslayer, he is trying to figure out what he really wants and whether he should return to the Secret Service or not.

Goals

  • Figure out what he really wants and whether he should return to the Secret Service or not
  • Explore his previously untapped magical abilities more deeply
  • Help the SINless children in the world
  • Finding out where his relationship with Katrin Morgentau is headed

Background

Growing up as a SINless child in anarchist Berlin more poorly provided for by his uncle after the death of his parents, Joshua Calvert's serendipitous encounter with a troubled Unit 13 agent led to his acceptance into the "Federal Bureau of Internal Security" and eventual enlistment in the "Special Support Group". The agency equipped him with cyberware and placed him undercover at Saeda-Krupp. As part of corporate security, he should keep his eyes and ears open for the Agency. In the decker Katrin Morgentau he found his first great love and a useful source as she had direct access to the golden dragon. Then he felt the awakening of magic inside him. A stronger and stronger tingling that seized him everywhere. A tingling that had always been there, but that he could never really grasp. Almost burned out by his excessive use of cyberware. Nevertheless, it was there and wanted to be explored. He sought help from S-K's mages but was rejected because they thought his talent was already lost due to the implanted cyberware. Eventually the tragedy took its course, ordered to keep order during an operation at the Rhine-Ruhr megaplex (Fog City) Joshua was confronted with driving out S-K's expected squatters including their children or killing and disposing of them if necessary. He reported the situation to his liaison officer and requested permission to intervene. He received orders to stand down and let it happen. No action was taken against S-K by the Agency. Plagued by doubts and accusations of guilt, Joshua had more and more problems maintaining his cover. Dragonslayer saw his chance to find a new follower and entered his life. He taught him that all the disaster is part of the world order created by dragons. He also showed Joshua how he could still achieve his stunted magical abilities. Joshua decided it was time to clear his head. So he filed for the first vacation of his life by faking his death and disappearing to Seattle through GDI contacts. He was unaware that Katrin Morgentau already knew every of his moves. Once in Seattle, he familiarized himself with the city and found a fixer to work for in the shadows.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Positive

  • Adept His magical powers are NEARLY dead, but not quite extinct yet.
  • Agile Defender Not getting hit is always better than relying on armor.
  • Biocompatibility (Cyberware) Installing cyberware in his body early on has led to some acceptance.
  • Low-Light Vision Being an orc has its advantages
  • Mentor Spirit and Mentor´s Mask (Dragonslayer) Teacher and mentor only access to the chaos of magic.
  • Redliner Joshua always tries to get the maximum out of his cyberware.
  • Shoor First, Don´t Ask This happens when instinct kicks in
  • Tusks Being an orc has its advantages

Negative

  • Allergy (Uncommon, Mild) (Seafood) Tastes like shit and triggers nasty complaints.
  • Code of Honor (Children) Joshua never wants to allow a repeat of the incident as happened with S-K.
  • Poor Self Control (Thrill Seeker) Action is what allows us to feel alive.
  • Records on File (Saeder-Krupp) What can I say, they must have been suspicious. By the way, Katrin Morgentau knows exactly who he is and that he is alive.
