Yeah... Shame Forklift has NO social skills and managed to really piss of that stressed and overworked Indenture Overlook or whatever they were called huh?
Sex wise Forklift tends to identify as the body they are in and are usually very open to sex, she took quite well to the accidental addition of prostitution to her tasks. Just don't expect her to follow in Krysta's death seeking! Forklift is quite proud of the work put into and ongoing with her current morph!
Works for me ^_^ Krysta will probably "demand" services with enough of a wink and a smile that if Forklift honestly wasn't interested, Krysta wouldn't push. The important things would be both getting in enough credit to make back the investment and having her there in the event that Firewall needs them.
As far as Ego vs Morph, Krysta is sexually attracted to the morph and not the ego, so zero issue there ^_^
I also notice that Forklift has no Credit, so anything she makes will just go to Krysta.
As far as the Phoenix, it's something Krysta personally sees as her path and certainly wouldn't ask anyone else to follow it.
Anima would start out in the same boat regarding indentured servitude (read: slavery) to start out, too. If anyone has suggestions about how she gets free I'm all ears. I have some thoughts too but don't have the time to develop them right now.
Krysta's not sexually attracted to octopi, and you've mentioned that she'll be free by this point, but if you like, a similar offer might have come about to set Anima up on Mars as a neurosurgeon.
Could this even be a running theme, where Krysta finds the people who have far too valuable of skills to waste on indentured servitude, purchases them and ensures that they don't run away or anything? Since Krysta would kinda be her own bounty hunter if problems arose, and it's kinda helping make the System a better place with not having Indents treated as absolute crap.
Given the expense of Octomorphs, though, if that's in our backstory together, it would probably be a time before when your character had that morph.
Eh, that's not super within the default setting, but I'm fine with it, given her background.
Travel time from Extropia is probably over a month, so you'll likely have one backup on Mars.
May need a stunt for that, but we can see how it plays out in the game.
It probably won't even come up, but I can certainly see Krysta planning for it.
If you like the idea, maybe there's an offshoot on Mars where Krysta can order in if her morph does die. Not sure how well that works in the setting, though.
I tend to pitch out lots of ideas and just see what fits. It helps me learn.
