Character Information

Summary

A chromed-up murder machine of an elf, Voltage is a skilled marksman and a powerhouse fighter. She's great at busting heads and ripping guts for the Ancients, but not so great at, uh... anything that requires her to use her brain for more than about two seconds.

Goals

  • Make a name for herself with the Ancients
  • Upgrade her bike
  • Upgrade her 'ware!

Background

Voltage has been running with the Ancients since she was big enough to sit on a bike, and she's always been desperate to impress her superiors and gain a solid reputation with them. As planning has never been her strong suit, she decided to follow an impulse and try to accomplish that by setting fire to a prominent pro-human politician's beachfront vacation home. Though no one was in it at the time, it made national news in the CAS as a terrorist attack, and the second it was published, Voltage immediately began crowing about it to her squad leader. Knowing that her impulsive braggart of a charge was bound to get her dumb ass dragged off to prison probably forever, she made arrangements to get her sent off to Seattle's chapter. For better or for worse, Voltage is their responsibility now.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Positive

  • Bilingual: Voltage is proud to be an elf, and steeped in elven culture. She speaks Sperethiel and English equally well.
  • Made Woman: She's worked hard and proven her worth in order to become a fully-fledged member of the Ancients.
  • Vehicle Empathy, Stunt Driver, Steely-Eyed Wheelman: Lots of quality time spent with Caroline--who is Voltage's yerzed-out Harley-Davidson Nightmare, not her girlfriend, despite how she talks about her--has given Voltage the practice and skill to become a highly competent wheelwoman.

Negative

  • Distinctive Style: Ancients pride, baby! Even if Voltage puts on something other than biker synthleather, it's pretty obvious she's an Ancient. Oh, and those all-black limbs are pretty memorable.
  • Emotional Attachment (Caroline): Voltage loves her bike. Like, she REALLY loves her bike. Not just in the way that most other go-gangers love their bikes; Voltage talks about Caroline, her yerzed-out Harley-Davidson Nightmare, in the same way one might talk about their girlfriend.
  • Definitely Not An Elven Supremacist: (Favored - Common Target, Biased, Elves; Prejudiced - Common Target, Outspoken, Humans)

Voltage has dealt with a few too many dirty metaracist humans. And since nobody really gets the kind of metaracism that elves face on the regular, nobody has their back but other elves.

  • One Born Every Minute: Voltage can't seem to wrap her mind around the idea of "ulterior motives."
  • Poor Self Control (Braggart, Combat Monster, Thrill Seeker): Nothing impresses girls in bars like a good story about her risky, daring adventures. She's like a real life action hero!
  • The Goat: What do you mean the obvious Ancient decked out in obvious cyber isn't suspicious? She's perfectly trustworthy. There's no way she's up to any shady drek.
  • Uneducated: School is for suckers. Voltage learned everything she needs to know on the street.
  • Wanted (CAS FBI, ¥200k): "What, it's not more?"

Allies

  • Babylon: Since Babylon is a higher-ranking Ancients member and leads the squad she runs with, Voltage idolizes her a bit and will do absolutely anything that Babylon asks her to, for better or for worse. They're also sleeping together and are entirely unsubtle about it.
  • Duchess: Fellow Ancient, and Voltage's roommate. Duchess leaves her constant reminders to not brag about her bounty like an idiot, but they get along surprisingly well despite coming from opposite tiers of society.
  • Cherry Bomb: Voltage press-ganged Cherry into joining the Ancients when she tried to steal Caroline by hacking past her anti-theft system. Somehow, she doesn't quite understand why Cherry doesn't want to be BFFs with her yet.

Enemies

  • CAS Federal Bureau of Investigation: Voltage is wanted for terrorism and attempted assassination. The CAS FBI is offering a hefty sum of nuyen to anyone who can bring her in, and is also willing to offer a reward for information leading to her arrest.

In Character Information

Symbols and Signatures

Voltage displays her Ancients circle-A patch on her synthleather vest, and flies her gang colors with pride.

Matrix Search Table

Threshold Result
1 An electromotive force or potential difference expressed in volts.
3 A member of the Ancients, originally from Miami. There's a viral trid of her blasting a kraken with green fire from a flamethrower and lots of photos of her on a yerzed-out Harley-Davidson Nightmare, and she's proudly throwing Ancients gang signs in almost all of them. Image metadata is mostly localized around Tarislar.
6 If you're running an image search, you'll easily find her face plastered all over news reports, stating that the CAS Department of Homeland Security is offering a large sum of nuyen for information leading to her arrest, and will award ¥200,000 to anyone who's actually able to bring her in. The name Delara Ó Máille is attached to the bounty postings.

Shadow Community Table

Threshold Result
1 A loud-and proud Ancients razorgirl. She's who you call if you want someone killed in an unsubtle and incredibly painful way.
3 A braggart and a show-off who revels in violence and won't stop posting pictures of her bike all over the damn 'Trix. She's a heavily augmented FLR with custom spurs in her left arm.
5 Maybe the brashness is a front, or maybe it isn't--but Voltage conducts herself with a surprising amount of discretion on the job. While violence is her forte, she's also skilled at stealthy and non-lethal approaches to her work. Favors elven employers, and is often a little rude to humans.


SINs

  • Finley Callahan - R4 UCAS fake SIN. Bodyguard, restricted augmentations, firearms, concealed carry, driver's licenses.
  • Carey Luna - R6 Aztechnology fake SIN. Bodyguard, restricted augmentations, firearms, concealed carry, driver's licenses.

Appearance

Voltage is tall, standing at 196 cm (6'5"). She could pass for a very leanly-muscled ork at a distance, were it not for the very obvious Ancients colors she wears. She has four obvious matte-black cyberlimbs; the arms are brand-new custom models, but the legs look outdated. Her hair is styled up in a dark green mohawk, and the grown-out roots show that it's naturally a dark brown. There's extensive scarring on the right side of her face and neck.

Clothing

Voltage is almost always wearing her synthleather biker vest with a large Ancients patch proudly displayed on the back. Even when she's not armored up, she tends to dress in gang colors, and tends to value utility over style. She usually wears sleeveless shirts to show off her cyberarms.

Matrix Persona

A slightly modded version of an-off-the-rack elf persona. The arms and legs are reskinned to bear some resemblance to her cyberlimbs, though the texture is a little off, and the hairstyle is an approximation of her own.

Media Mentions

None locally, but her face has been plastered all over CAS news for getting caught in an act of terrorism and attempted assassination.
