Overview

Cassandra Black was previously a Cutters lieutenant. She had her back broken from a run-in with local Ancients, and was sold replacement ware by Tamanous. After being fixed up, Cassandra went to all out war with the Ancients; Cassandra has a belt made of bronzed elf ears; there's a rumor that they’re actual ears from full-badge Ancients.

The Cutters raelized she was no longer an asset worth retaining. They stopped paying her tab with Tamanous and allowed them to collect the debt. Somehow Cassandra has survived--at least until now. After throwing the Ancients a quick score against the Cutters, she's now in an Ancients safehouse which--as you might imagine--does not feel safe to Cassandra.

Cassandra's current debt with Tamanous includes:

  • Wired Reflexes 2 (111750)
  • Internal Router (11250)

Totaling about 123k retail and 175k with "financing".

GM Notes

She is a total badass that has been stripped of her previous networked that allowed her to operate with impunity. While she rebuilds this, she's acutely aware that she's precariously positioned between three organizations that want her dead and can make her dead at most any time.

As such, Cassandra uses flirting and sarcasm, in equal measure, to disarm her friends and enemies alike. Instead of staring daggers at anyone, she'd much rather just regular stab them, BUT she realizes that this is--in the current moment--more dangerous than playing nice. If someone puts her in too uncomfortable a position, her first instinct would be to take an ear.


Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Prisoner of War Cassandra is currently being "protected" in an Ancients safehouse while she can provide useful information. Cassandra cannot perform active checks or obtain gear. If Cassandra's connection is raised by an Ancients member or through interactions with an NPC, this quality may be removed while adjusting no other aspects.
Trust is Earned. All players who pick up Cassandra begin by owing her one chip. Ancients members owe her two chips, and Cutters owe her three. She will not provide any services until these chips are repaid. Additionally, whenever you would owe Cassandra one or more chips, (such as asking for a favor,) she requires 1 additional chip.
Trust is Earned. If you've got positive chips with Cassandra, you may spend a chip to add double your (pre-spending) number of chips to an individual contact roll. If you're required to roll multiple times in a run or even an exchange, this bonus does not apply to those future rolls.
Thug Life Cassandra has intimate knowledge of gang activity and habits within the Seattle area.
The Enemy of My Enemy... is also my enemy. Cassandra keeps tabs on both the Ancients and Cutters, specifically.
Gun Runner Cassandra's main expertise was in the smuggling of illegal goods.
Total Badass Cassandra is what we in the business call "an imposing figure." Off table, this confers no bonus, but GMs may apply this quality as needed.
