C.C or Chris is a very talented inventor who also has lots of experience in time travel. Equipped with a device from the future called the detectix, a computer hacking mechanical bug (The computerbug), four robotic arms that come out of his backpack with the press of a button and goggles that allow him to magnify on certain objects. He acts very slinky and has a bad slouch (he\'s the kinda guy that you wouldn\'t be surprised if he fell upside down from the ceiling if you called his name) he\'s very paranoid (But you would be too if you saw your own death!) His computer expertise and mechanical smarts make him a good helper on any mission but since he came from the future he lacks the "N.E.R.V" chip but when he came to this time from the future he ended up in the ventilation systems of the Solar-com headquarters and found out there plan and is now frequently trying to unite the groups together to expose Borgiss\'s plan.
Name: Nintha Fett
Occupation: hacker and spy
He was a hacker for the government, turned rouge when he found out what the government was really doing with the information he had \"found\". He came to the island of Terrel for a new begining. First freelancing to get zerbite, then he was found in the mines ,almost beaten to death by the Chings hired hands, by the R.A.Ts. He is now one of there best spies and hackers and has a hatred to the Chings group. He has uniforms for spying in the other groups.
Jackson Hazell is what some would call a computer geek, but he\'s got defense smarts, and not just to keep computers from getting viruses! Jackson has but a couple of friends, including CC, due to his loner behavior. He also only speaks around his friends, and even then he doesn\'t have much to say. Some say they think he\'s suspicious, but his friends know they\'re wrong. His computer skills somewhat help keep computer defenses so as to try and keep out hackers, but his defenses have been known to fail time and again. This is but another reason why he doesn\'t like being around others, because he is constantly yelled at for letting hackers steal precious information. Also, no one knows what\'s in the black briefcase Jackson carries around. He keeps a numeral lock on the case, and only he knows the combination. When asked he usually say that the time is coming to open it, and then they\'ll all know, but everyone just thinks he\'s messing with them.
Name: Samantha Vonne(Sandy)
Occupation: Human resources manager at Solar-Com
The daughter of a renown family, Samantha Vonne started working for Solar-Com as an intern five years ago. She quickly rose ranks inside the company, and was assigned to Terrel Island. She had the N.E.R.V chip installed to her, but it had to be removed since it caused a severe migrene to her. Currently she handles recruiting new workers for Solar-Com, thus she has access to all personal files within the company. After several workers on the island go missing without a trace, she senses something\'s rotten in the company, she sets out to find out just what exactly is going on.
Samantha is a very polite and amicable person who gets along with just about anybody, and can talk her way out of trouble in most cases. However, she isn\'t hesitant of using her inherited wealth to get what she needs either. She knows well that money talks, and money coming from a pretty young woman talks even louder.
However, Samantha has no experience in combat or self-defense, so if she cannot talk or buy her way out of a situation, she knows she is screwed. Thus she seeks the aid of a bodyguard as she delves deeper into the secrets of her workplace.
Name: Marcus Sulkan(CallMePie)
Marcus is a member of the S.T.E.E.L.S. He scavenges from junkfields, mostly to find technology, even when broken. He excells at being a mechanic, and is usually fixing things he finds. He normally carries his pulse blaster and his spanner.
After the Nerv chip was implanted by force, he devoted himself to finding it. He tried to find it on several occasions, but (as you can tell from the scars) he failed twice. On the thrid attempt, he found it. He decided it was too dangerous to remove it himself, so he scanned it and created his headpiece, which scrambles the workings in the chip.
He never trusted the goverment, and grew ever more suspicious when they implanted the chips. Now he wants nothing to do with them.
Name; Inserge Rye (Dannylonglegs)
Age 20-30s (not common knowlege)
Group; Other (Pirates)
Inserge Rye was born in the Enviro-Domes of frigid Antarctica where he live for the only 18 documented years of his life. Abused by his rich parents and forced to take extensive sword-ship classes he grew up cold and ostracized from people. Proud of his samurai heritage, his Swordsmanship was soon famous through out the domes of Antarctica. As he grew he collected inherited weapons from feudal Japan, including a katana and an antique shotgun. One day a group of pirate ruffians raided the town, and his family was killed. Being the resourceful boy that he was he snuck aboard their ship with his katana, his shotgun, and one million Antarctic platinums. None of the pirates lived. However he was assumed dead and was not able to return to his home. He gathered a crew of orphans and they continued to terrorize the coasts of the South Pole, Their captain, Inserge, adopted the name Deluge.After a few years of looting, Deluge decided that their talents were waisted on such a barren land (well, it wasn\'t as barren as it was in 2010, but it was still largely uninhabited, due to the expense of heating the domes without hurting the severely damaged environment. It was really mostly a united space colonization headquarters, with their eyes set on the planets beyond Mars) and set his sights towards Europe. They never got to Europe though. Instead they reached Terrel, the most amazing, water surrounded, hub since Atlantis (and that was just a myth made up by some stupid deep sea salvage crew.) At first Deluge had competition, but they didn\'t last long at all when he boarded their ships. sometimes he would let the crew of their ships join his. More often though he would just kill them. His name soon became infamous, and his crew of murderers notorious.Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view) his spree did not go unnoticed. The police of Terrel (busy as they were with the daily faction clashes) united to take his crew. It was a fierce battle, but they were all taken in. Except for him. At the time of the battle his first mate had been in charge, and he had been brooking a deal with a few STEEL simpletons, and when he returned to his ship he found it crawling with coppers (and not the South Pole currency.) Thinking quickly he used an automatic steering device to crash his craft into an oil tanker (oil was now used only by antique cars, and other outdated things, and was also being made artificially.) The whole harbor was unusable for months as it was being cleaned. He on the other hand went into hiding.He had brought his Shotgun and his Katana with him (as well as a few newer weapons) and was again stranded. He took the opportunity to search an abandoned mine shaft only to discover an entire tunnel system that could take him nearly any where in the city. He made himself a lair with debris he found (or rather stole from STEELs while their backs were turned, but they didn\'t miss it) and now has a depressed adobe far underneath a shady part of the city. He works as a bounty hunter/mercenary under his given name; Inserge, and vows revenge on the government for trapping him in this hellhole.He wears a suit of armor that is pretty useful against laser weapons, and projectiles(not that anyone uses them) but he\'s not invincible. He carries a host of new weapons, as well as his Shotgun, and somehow he always manages to hold them on his back, without a backpack (hint; a strap.) He wields a vibro-blade modeled after his katana (he uses it as decoration nowadays, as well as his only friend.) He is possibly the best sword fighter on the planet, knowing thousands of styles, including some he made himself. he is also a fairly good unarmed combatant, but prefers a sword. He\'s a piscitarian eating no mammals, and a proud samurai. He is cold, calculating, and arrogant, but flexible and sneaky. He often observes his quarry for a while before striking to see it\'s weaknesses.
Name: Roger Jones (Brickme)
Roger was born in the humble city of Dodge city, Kansas. He then ventured off and eventually found a liking to hack computers. He refused to pay 100 dollars for a chip and therfore does not have one. He eventually found the R.A.T.s and had a liking for them. He wears his headset all the time to be aware of every R.A.T. member close by. He does have expierence with weaponry too. If there ever comes a time for a weapon Roger can make one of just about anything and can fire any gun with deadly accurcy. He has no need to alarm others as he is a humble R.A.T. member. He has never trusted anyone or anything his entire life. He has a lighter skin color because he once was thrown onto a glass sheet and he started bleeding insanely. Anyway the bleeding was too much and he went to a hospital but discovered that the glass was so deep they had to use radiation to get it out. His skin color was never the same and the other R.A.T. members tease him about it. Oh and he has a slight case of A.D.D.
Name: Ichi (Pedro)
Faction: The Chings
Occupation: Oni Agent: Assassin, Mercenary, Bodyguard
Much of Agent Ichi’s former life remains shrouded in mystery. He was the first of the Oni Agents; tech-ninja created by the secret super-soldier Oni Project, a doomed endeavour began by the union of the Solar-com and Ching corporations. Handpicked as a candidate from a list of those who fitted a specific genetic disposition, Ichi was indoctrinated into the program and put through a process of hyper-advanced technological upgrading and combat training and bestowed with the cutting edge of weaponary and wargear.Upon the destruction of the Oni Project, Ichi was the last surviving Oni Agent rescued by the Chings amidst an ensuing corporation war and has been a part of their ranks since. Ichi is no slave though; purposefully willed, self sufficient to the point of detachment, he is an efficiently engineered killing machine and has become one of the most lethal and renown assassins operating on the island of Terrel.During the process of his creation, Agent Ichi was implanted with an upgraded NERV chip. Because of the punishing training regime and sheer volume of combat information and tactics taught to the Oni Agents, the memory destabilizing powers of the chip were removed. Initially there has been no side effects, but as time passes Ichi inwardly questions his life before Oni and what he has become little realisig the journey of self discovery he is about to embark on.
Nikolas Hunt (Steel Dragon)
Occupation: Experimental Weapons Developer, Amateur Hacker
Born on Terrel Island, Nikolas recieved the N.E.R.V.A. chip when he was 19. His father, a freelance hacker who occasionally worked with the R.A.T.S., realized very soon what the N.E.R.V.A. system was really for and decided to intervene. He brought Nik to a RAT friend of his who specialized in cybernetics to have the chip removed. His timing was terrible, and halfway through the operation the RAT base was raided by Ching agents. Nikolas was pulled out of the operation prematurely, resulting in spinal damages which led to neck-down paralysis. When the dust settled after the raid, Nikolas and only a handful of RATs, including the cyberneticist, were left. He was hauled back onto the table, where he kept his N.E.R.V.A. and gained a cybernetic spine amplification. Able to walk again, Nikolas and the RATs patched the spine into his N.E.R.V.A. chip, allowing him to control it and anything he plugged in to the power strip now running down his back. With a new gadget and a thirst for vengeance, he set off to find his father. In the four years since, Nikolas has developed a number of \"backpacks\" which he can attach to his N.E.R.V.A.-spine, including a short-lived experimental jetpack and a third, mechanical arm. His spine can occasionally lose power or malfunction, leading to temporary paralysis from the neck down. Nikolas has also become obsessed with memories and their retention, keeping all his memories safe on a database at home away from Ching hands.In a scuffle with Ching agents, Nikolas lost his left leg. This was replaced by a cybernetic prosthetic, making him somewhere around 7% machine.Nikolas owns the underground store \"FirePower\", serving RATs, STEELs and pirates with state-of-the-art experimental weapons.
Name: Dave Charon
Age: 112 years
Affiliation: Ching, web of other connections for harvesting profit
Occupation: Business manager of Solar-com, investigator, hit-man, collection agent, assistant to Borgiss
Due to the constant inter-faction wars and standard dangerous conditions on the island of Terrel, life expectancies tend to be fairly short compared to the rest of the world, where the average age, due to advanced medicine, has reached two hundred years old. On Terrel, it\'s rare to see anyone even over the age of seventy. Dave Charon, therefore, is an oddity, a spry 112.Raised by his parents, a lawyer and a museum curator, in Illinois before the raising of Terrel, Dave grew up as a staunch traditionalist, becoming intimately familiar with many ancient time periods, including his favorite, the twentieth century, in his dad\'s museum. In college, he found that he had a natural grasp of economics and business, as well as mathematics, physics, and computer programming. However, the psychologist programs monitoring the school computers determined that he had an underlying psycho-sadism disorder.He was given drugs for his psychosadism, but they reacted poorly with his system, causing temporary insanity. On the first night of the perscription, he broke out of his computer-locked room and ran downstairs into the museum. Taking an ancient but fully restored Thompson Sub-machine gun from its case, he shot his way out of the building and ran off, before being stopped by the town\'s computer system, which shot at him with lasers, taking off his hand. He was stuck in jail for ten years, until he and his fellow inmates broke out and went to the People\'s Republic of Canada. Since the PRC had not actually been communist for almost a century, Dave was able to start up a highly successful business, where he learned how to be completely economically ruthless, and, as they say \'every trick in the book\'. Without the medication, his psychosadism and sociopathy got worse.After the rise of Terrel, Borgiss was looking for business managers to keep the company working properly while he worked on the science of his evil plot. Dave\'s work with his company impressed the cyborg, who bought the company and made Dave an offer he couldn\'t refuse to work with him. Dave agreed, and became Borgiss\'s Vice President in charge of Executive Defferment - in other words, everything.
After Borgiss was done with the science of his evil plot and it was set in motion, Dave was doing such a good job with the economics of the company that he was allowed to stay on, and even given several rewards: better cybernetic implants (to fix the laser damage) than the ones that the U.S. Government had given him in jail, a high-tech hook to fill in for his missing hand, and, for old times\' sake, the Thompson sub-machine gun that he had used the first night. Soon after this, he was given expanded duties as a hitman and \'debt collector\'
Name: \"Reptile\" (Disturbia)
Team: Sewer dwelling mutants
There have been rumours of monsters in the sewers, everywhere. People go missing during the night, if they stray too close to the manholes. The Governments dismiss the cries of the people, although they did send down a SWAT team to make the people happy. The team came back unharmed, reported nothing. But people kept disappearing. Heck, even computers, fans and bicycle pumps were stolen. There is a reason, a cause for everything.Many years ago, something went wrong with testing radiation missiles at some far off plant in the middle of the Pacific. Scientists, builders and engineers alike were flooded with millions of rads per minute, and some how survived the tragedy. There were nasty chemicals at the plant too, which started to leak on them during the crisis. Perhaps the toxins saved them. It saved them alright, but not in the way they wanted.Their bodies changed beyond recognition. They became monsters. People cried in fear when the mutants tried to re-establish contact. The whole radiation missile test crisis became worldwide known, but everyone assumed these monsters killed everyone and set them off.Ostracized and shunned, the mutants made it to the underworld of cities. Their sanity waned as the years rolled on. Their life expectancies were boosted immensely. At one point, they had mostly separated out of declining resources like food (and the fact some went so mad they turned on the rest).\"Reptile\" has lost his name, according to him. It means nothing to him. His mutation spawned him two more arms and scales, not to forget his gaping jaws and crocodillian head. He wears all that remains of his original suit in the hope someone will recognise it and him. He knows the sewers like the backs of his hands, and operates from a range of different locations (he\'s always on the move) from New Sparta to Schwarzeneggopolis. He steals technology from the surface, as does every other mutant, and can hack on four different computers at the same time.He managed to hack into the New Republic Bank once, stealing every dollar. He got away with it, and still has the cash. His purposes for the cash are malevolent, but largely unknown. What\'s he working on now is also unknown. Whenever he\'s on the surface world, he carries two large rifles for protection.He never had a chip, his mutation occurred before the compulsory installation of chips into people\'s minds. He also plans to travel to Terrel for some zerbite ore.
Name: Warren Springfield (Sok117)

Things were looking good for warren when suddenly His family was killed in the night by the sewer dwelling mutants. With nothing left for him he joined R.A.T.S and decided to live life to the fullest, killing, gambling, and doing... well... you know. Armed with his Akimbo Mac Dias, Warren is not afraid of death, after all he has nothing to lose.As for Warren\'s chip, well, lets just say the last person to get that close to him with a Chip Implanting dvice, got what was coming to him.
Name: Gully Fidern
Group: Nauralist (Though is still working for Solar-com)
Occupation: Solar-com, but soon to be homeless.
Born Gulliver Goodtree, he was convicted of murdering his wife and ran away. He managed to escape and Solar-com realised he would be desperate enough to get his name changed and start a new life to try out their NERV chip prototype. Unfortunately, when it was successful, a RAT hacker tryed to spark his murderous side, he convinced him ( Gully himself is unaware of the chip) that Zerbite was sentient. He was also implanted with a fake image of the island before cyberpunk, driving him to become insane and decide he would rip the city, building by building, man from man. computer by computer.
Name: John "The Klutz" Croker
John "The Klutz" is a 22 year-old with terrible Karma. He can never seem to do anything right without something bad following.

Name: Kiara Bolt (Key-Ah-Ra)
Occupation: Trained assassin and security Guard
Kiara is a well known individual for being the best at what she does. Even with her Job though she is still a girl and prefers not to kill anyone but she has killed many in the past, Kiara loves a good adventure and often finds it in her job. Her farther was a famous program writer but when his N.E.R.V chip caught a virus he died and Kiara made sure to try and get her one removed. However she was unable to but managed to find a guy that could shut it down so now she has a mark in the back of her head and a non-working chip in it. Her job came to her when one of her fathers best friends took her in as her mother was also dead. He hired her as a guard in a R.A.T area and she worked up the levels and got to where she is now.Kiara owns lots of money but spends it wisely. She knows that people will hunt her for it but she is too clever for them and hid it in a secret underground safe far away from Terrel. She still keeps money in a bank account though and with her at all times in case she needs to buy herself out of a problem. Overall the Rats trust her and she is not an enemy to any group and even has friends elsewhere around Solar-Com.
