Mr. X, a beloved Bargain Basement street doc, is a previous army medic. He's called Mr. X because, as he pulled a woman and her child to safety, the young boy said "thank you Mr. X" after seeing the medic cross on his armband and the name stuck.

He treats infected and clean alike; despite his debt to Tamanous, even THEY recognize that offing such a man is bad for business.

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Borrowed Time Roll edge when you contact this NPC. On what would be a critical glitch for other tests, Mr. X's cyberarm has been reclaimed by Tamanous. Swap this quality for the "disarmed" quality.
Barrens Medic Mr. X is a gifted healer; he makes split-second medical decisions, (such as with first aid or other emergency treatments) quickly and accurately.
Very Wary Mr. X, thanks to his time with the Army, is comfortable with and around cyberware.
Sterile Environment Mr. X keeps a very clean facility. Medical procedures that take place inside this facility benefit from his diligence.
CyberScalpel (Cyber) Mr. X can install standard, alpha, and betaware at his location in the Barrens.
CyberScanner(Cyber) Mr. X benefits from his cyber-scanner while diagnosing maladies or prepping patients.
This table provides spoilers about the next stages of the NPC's negative qualities. When necessary, replace the previous qualities with these.
Disarmed Mr. X cannot use his (Cyber) qualities until ShadowHaven members donate enough money (35k)* to replace it or complete an equivalent value in favors for Trevor Avila (per GM fiat). When the arm is replaced, swap this quality out for the On Edge quality instead.
  • These donations cannot be part of any "work for the people" action, but DO come out of run rewards before any code of honor requirements are calculated.
  • If Trevor Avila is dead or unreachable, buying a replacement arm is the only option.
On Edge Tamanous stole his arm after he thought his debt was paid. If you have positive 162s or Tamanous rep, count this as notoriety when calculating dice pools for Mr. X.

Additionally, the Cutters are keeping his clinic safe. If you have positive rep with the Ancients, Mr. X will--by default--treat you as suspicious during social interactions. If you've got a full badge in the Ancients, Mr. X will be treated as prejudiced during social interactions.

Trevor Avila

Trevor, despite being a horrible person in almost every other sense of the word, is pursuing the repayment of a loan for ware incredibly gently. However, it may be dangerous for Mr. X if this generosity gets out.
