Chrysalid (Elven Decker)

  • Date of Birth: 03-11-2031
  • Metatype: Homo sapiens nobilis
  • Sex: male

Chrysalid is a free-lance decker who is working for different teams of shadowrunners. He is regularly changing his icon but every icon resembles an insect or insect-like creature. Chrysalid is your everyday decker who likes to talk about the newest technology, conspiracy theories or AIs and who is constantly working on his deck. He's got no close relatives and his only girlfriend is his MPCP. Like many deckers he is thinking of himself as priviledged and he considers people on a lower level (i.e. who are no deckers), especially mages, as inferior. His most striking feature (besides the pointy ears) are his both datajacks on his forehead on which he has put tiny antennas that give him an insectoid look. To further support this appearance he often wears glasses that are looking like the eyes of an insect. Aside from that he is looking rather common (and untidy because he has better things to do (decking) than to wash his hair or take a bath).

  • "A mage and a decker meet in the streets. Says the decker: "Hey mage, I've just finished my Killjoy 8, wanna see?" Says the mage: "Sorry, I do not smoke.""
