Character Information


Crazy drug-magic-and-ware-fueled veteran of the shadows, Marionette lives and breathes the underworld of Seattle. Go to him when need something, anything, doing.

Current Events

Long story short, all of Marions' friends are Dead or MIA. This has not been good for his health. He's gotten into BTLs, which only serves to confirm his hypothesis that reality is a simulation and nothing we do here has any real consequences. He's off the kami, at least, but how long that'll last nobody knows. A spiritual journey in china has revealed much about himself, and crystalized his desire to find the meaning in all the chaos of the world. Not that there'll be any.


Spawned with the intent of furthering Russia's super soldier program, Marion was the subject of extensive genetic experimentation in facilities across Europe and rejected his education and developed a deep distrust of his 'guardians'. He made good his escape several years ago, worked as a disappearer for elements of the Vory to get papers, and has slowly clawed his way across the continent seeking safer havens; landing him in Seattle. It just so happens that governments don't so easily relinquish valuable assets so freely, leading Кукольный to live looking over his shoulder and ready to bolt at any sign of the Man.

Traveling frequently, Marion has spent time living in a variety of locales from England to China, never staying in one place for too long. Maybe this time will be different, but he doubts it; the Vory are here, and trouble is never far behind.

A European drifter blowing into Seattle for security through obscurity among the less savory elements of society, putting his begrudgingly gotten skills to use running the shadows. Marionette, кукольный, commonly Marion, prefers to keep things wired and quiet, revealing to fill rooms with grenades and gunfire.

Бережёного Бог бережёт.


  • Makes amends with the Yakuza
  • Defeat whatever UGB elements are after him, the vory may be an ally in this
  • Forge contacts and resource bases to stay ahead of the Man
  • Break ties with his distant past so he can move
  • Settle down, eventually
  • Reality is a lie.

Living Arrangements

Permanent Downtown Apartment - 6|5|4 - Mage sensitive cleaning service, Indoor arboretum, Garage, Drone Maids, Patron of the arts (Penumbra)

Narrative Significant Qualities


Prototype Transhuman: The product of Russian genetic experimentation, it'd be a bad joke if it were not all too real for Marion.

Paranoia: Everybodies out to get Marion, and he's damn justified.

Poor Self Control (Thrill Seeker): When you aren't scared of the monsters in the closet anymore, you can start living a little.

Jack of all Trades, Master of none: Marion can fulfill any role reasonably, and in many cases perform as a one man runner team.

Addiction (Mild) (Kamikaze & Betameth): Heavy drug use takes its toll on the human body, but Marion handles it quiet well. Takes the edge off.

Wanted: When ones very body is illegal, interested parties tend to want it reclaimed.

(R6) Ted Nearway, Security Consultant



A slight man, Marion is at best reserved, and at worst twitchy and suspicious. UCC and Skilljack tabs pouring from the back of his head betray his form otherwise umblemished by chrome, along with the telltale shake of those cursed with either Parkinsons or Move-By-Wire. Seeing a firearm in his hands would confirm both the latter and the reason for his moniker, Marionette.


Marion favors extremely casual clothes, often sporting a Hawaiian shirt and shorts for unknown and esoteric reasons.

Given the often freezing temperatures in seattle, He'll often be more wrapped up, using AR fashion to style his cloak to local tastes.

Otherwise, a beautiful cloak and coat conceals layers of protective materials to help him blend in and keep unwanted signals at bay.

When on the job, Marion prefers to be not seen at all, and keeps it that way. makes a habit of being very loud.

Matrix Persona

Often the standard Fairlight Caliban Icon, infrequently himself trailing cut strings.



Media Mentions

- There are several videos on the trix of Marion engaging in a battle of the bands with SpinRad employees. These are totally fake, okay?
