Character Information


Ty is an awakened shapeshifter from the Salish territory. His early memories are from growing up in the forests and interacting with the smaller communities, eventually becoming part of the metahuman world.

Because of his curiosity, Shadowrunning appealed to him. He even met another shape shifting Fixer who helped him get his feet wet in the world.

Ty is a huge fan of Tacoma. The massive industry there fascinates him, though he finds the pollution annoying. His favorite place in Seattle is Fenris Nacht.

Ty has a tendency to use magic as well as mundane actions on a job. As he becomes more experienced in the Shadowhaven community, he has come to realize that spells, guns, and spirits are powerful alone, but together they can be much more effective. A good F6 air spirit makes a great ally in a fight, and APDS makes a decent alternative to his characteristic stunbolts when fatigue is a factor. Ty uses all parts of his very deep toolbox during a run.

Ty especially adheres to the metahuman ideal of honor. He cares little for the grand schemes in the metahuman world, preferring to just satisfy his curiosity. He would never willingly break his word, and nothing, not money, fame, status, or anything can buy him. Once he gives his word, he follows through. Ty doesn't seek the limelight, and as such he is absolutely willing to cast and sustain spells to make his team better. He usually uses an air spirit to do the fighting for him.

Ty is also pretty emotionally attached to his gear. He doesn't have a lot of stuff, so what he has is important to him.

A person matching Ty's description is wanted by the Rangers of the Salish-Shidhe Council for poaching a greater Thunderbird.

Ty possesses an old, handwritten copy of Robin Hood, dating from the middle ages. He has never had it appraised, so he is not completely sure of the date or value.


Ty seeks to expand his horizons and experience more of life. He is focusing on this goal. He is now more driven to become stronger and participate more in the Shadowhaven community. He knows what he can do, but wants to find out what else he could become.

He is constantly seeking to expand his contacts around the city, and seeks out any and all shapeshifters to form potential friendships. He feels that he might be able to do this better in the Shadowrunner community.

Ty wants to learn more about Othercon and is becoming sympathetic to their cause. He is going to lookout for any opportunity to help them and the community.


Ty was born in the Salish lands. He was the only shapeshifter in a litter of red foxes. His distinct coloration is a direct result of his awakened powers and shapeshifter qualities.

He grew up like any other fox in the woods. He learned to control his abilities quickly, but didn't interact with a metahuman until he was about a year old. He started interacting with the small villages, and later moved on to the cities. His thirst for knowledge would lead him on to bigger and greater things.

When he was 3, he decided to become a part of the bigger world. He received a SIN a year later, and decided to move to Seattle and experience life on a much larger scale.

Ty lives in Tacoma.

Narrative Significant Qualities


Mage - Ty is a Chaos mage. It makes learning about magic easier, and harder at the same time. He does take quite a bit of inspiration from Inari, and he models many of his symbols after her Shinto tradition. But he uses his own personal chaotic flair when he does things.

Astral Chameleon - Ty was exposed to some of the best magical teachers that the Salish had to offer. Both because he was a natural, and because they wanted to observe and study him a little bit. Ty's aura fades and blends into the background better than most.

Quick Healer - The nature of who he is gives him an uncanny knack for healing back minor wounds.

Mentor Spirit (Thunderbird) - Ty previously followed the Moon, but a chance encounter with a Greater Thunderbird led him to change and follow that spirit.

Spirit Affinity: Air - Ty has a natural affinity with spirits of the air. This relationship provides mutual respect between him and the spirits.

Broadened Auditory System, Keen-eared, Low-light Vision, and Vomeronasal Organ are traits of his race.


Allergy: Silver, Severe - Shapeshifters aren’t normally allergic to silver, but due to unfortunate genetics, Ty is.

Distinctive Style - His ears, tail, and teeth cause him to physically stick out, and his astral form is distinct. In FBA, he could be easily picked out as a mage in blue and black armor fighting along side his companions. He also almost always uses air spirits in combat.

SINner: Salish-Shidhe Council - His original SIN.

Uneducated - Ty grew up in the wild. Formal education is a foreign concept to him.

His metahuman form is that of a somewhat short, skinny male elf with bright blue eyes. His hair is black with natural blue accents. Ty usually dyes his hair to avoid suspicion.

In his metahuman form, Ty wears a dark blue and black armored jacket with a matching hooded cloak. He frequently also wears a scarf covering part of his face. The only reason he covers up so much is to hide his shapeshifter traits. He actually finds the multiple layers stifling.

His true form is a medium size dark blue fox.

In full gear he wears blue and black full body armor manufactured by Shiawase. It is clearly not military, but a trained eye could spot it as being similar to that used by the Corp's security. He also wears a long black cloak to cover up his tails.

He always carries a tricked out Cavalier Evanator in a concealed holster.

Matrix Persona

Ty uses a picture of a blue and black fox as his custom persona. He takes only a very casual interest in the Matrix, preferring to focus his pursuit of knowledge on magical topics.
