A concept! With the potential to also grab some Decking skills on the side. Maybe. At the moment I'm leaning more towards having some Adept infiltration abilities on the side.
Alfie Fairchild, a.k.a. Edmund Yates, Boniface Bellamy, "Janus"
Are you familiar with the concept of original sin? The idea that humans are eternally cursed as guilty the moment they've been born? Well, what about original SIN? It might as well be the same thing in the Shadows, especially with a corp SIN.
That's why I like to collect SINs: so no one finds my original one, especially the people I Run with. I'm partial to pride, lust, and greed myself, but when I'm playing nice with corporations, I'm Edmund; when I'm doing other things out and about, I'm Boniface.
Runners call me "Janus;" they're right about that one, more than they might care to know. Or that I like for that matter, but you don't pick your nicknames. Well, I was "Babyface Brit" when I was working in Berlin, but those aren't days I like remembering. I had to do a lot of things to survive outside of corporate reach in East Berlin. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Once upon a time, there was a boy named Alfie. That boy worked for Transys. He was good; very good. He was climbing the corporate ladder. He had a shot at the big leagues. And then his competitor let slip to his boss that he was slipping it to a secretary from Renraku. Of course, the fact that he was using her for information wasn't something that the competitor was willing to share.
So, thrown out into the cold and unforgiving wasteland of the Edinburgh barrens, Alfie did what he did best: lie, swindle, self-promote, and negotiate. Why? Well, first it was for survival. Then it was for profit. Then it was to stay on the way up. He was climbing a ladder again, but this time it wasn't corporate: it was Shadowy.
Now he (which is me, yes) is living the high life: still being paid to do what he does best, but doing it both exorbitantly and in style. He's come a long way from his second origin, and he's more than willing to work to keep it that way.
Alfie's SINS are these:Alfie Fairchild:
His original SIN, first for Transys and now for NeoNET since their merger following the Matrix's second crash. Between paying for his return to the high life and paying for gear for more runs, he hasn't pulled together enough nuyen to pay someone with enough connections to delete this one. It's a Corporate SIN with a license as a magical adept. Alfie hasn't used his own name in connection to Shadowrunning, and he's hoping it stays that way. Alfie's native accent shines here, and it's pretty clear he's from Edinburgh.Edmund Yates:
The SIN he's broadcasting more often than not. Edmund's SIN is issued by the United Kingdom, and he has a flat in London in his name. Edmund's job history is that of a security consultant, someone hired by a corporation to test the security of one of their sites. However, he hasn't really worked that job in years; family inheritance set him up for life. A National SIN with licenses for a lot of Alfie's Shadowrunning gear that isn't outright illegal. Edmund speaks with with a Reserved Pronunciation accent.Boniface Bellamy:
A SIN for palling around with the rich and famous. Boniface's SIN was originally issued by the UK, but he moved to the UCAS in his mid-twenties. Boniface is an investor, primarily in trideo content, and he merits some invitations to fancy events this way. If there's legitimate business being done, it's often through this SIN. Another National SIN with the same licenses as Edmund. Speaks with a diluted Estuary English accent.
