Well, this is my original concept's history. (Need to remember they don't want google drive links in the public parts of the site!)
History: Growing up on Earth before the fall, Rindi became a huge fan of action oriented weekend long A.R. games. She had a knack for the athleticism and combat prowess required. By the time she entered high school, it occurred to her that a formal study of athleticism and combat skills could improve her game considerably. She joined the gymnastics club, took lessons at the firing range, and found a really good martial arts dojo.
In the gymnastics club, she discovered parkour--as a sport, an art, and as an entertainment widely followed on the Mesh. Her mixture of natural talent, serious training, gaming, and enjoyment of what she was doing made her very good. Mixed with her hot body, pretty face, and easy smile, she became quite popular in her set and was soon making money selling various recordings of her games and athletic exploits.
During the Fall, Rini tried to lead some kids to safety through a city that was being crushed. She lead them from war zone to war zone. The last thing she remembers was leaping off of a collapsing building with a little boy in her arm while some sort of combat mecha sprayed the street below her with automatic rail gun fire.
After the eventual retrieval of her digitized identity, Rindi spent several years on the Mesh, playing games, learning at random, and studying electronics. She picked up a lot of skills, but still thought of it as killing time in VR while she waited for an opportunity to acquire a new body. She didn’t get what she’d expected.
Aaron Shin, the son of a hypercorp shareholder fast tracked for the board of directors himself enjoyed A.R. games and parkour in his leisure time. He came across recordings she’d done of her games and parkour--and also some energetic and sexy roof to roof dances she’d featured in.
Aaron became mildly obsessed with her. (It's not like he was used to encountering anything he couldn’t have.) Before even approaching her with the contract, he’d already commissioned a custom morph for her, an olympian frame based on her original body, but even more attractive and possessed of some actual ‘action girl’ themed bioware. It was already prepared when his people made Rindi the offer. “Mr. Shin is looking for a companion. A courtesan if you will, but one with the skill and athleticism to accompany him in his A.R. games and athletic adventures.”
Rindi was extremely dubious. She knew that calling most people who got a Sleeve through corporate sponsorship wound up in a condition comparable to 17th century bond servants at best. The agent glossed it over, but she knew the out she was being offered was to become a glorified slave girl to this “Aaron Shin.” Given that immortality was the norm in this day and age, she might wind up his bed and sleeping bag warmer for centuries--never losing her youthful beauty or physical edge or whatever else might fade to encourage him to tire of her.
When the agent realized she was on the verge of refusing, he pulled out the stick to go with the carot. He mentioned that turning down a body would see her dropped to the bottom of the waiting list. He insinuated that her name might slip off of that list all together. In fact, her identity might wind up unplugged from the matrix and misspaced, leaving her in digital statis ‘til the end of time.
Furious and terrified, Rindi finally agreed. She was shut down. Her personality and memories were edited. She thinks she has a good idea of in what ways. He removed her former lovers from her memory, making her a mental virgin as well as physical. Her vague streak of sexual submissiveness was heightened to the point where it was almost a compulsion. For her first three years she was Aaron Shin’s submissive and loving companion in spite of herself.
Her resentment of her sation slowly grew. She only left Aaron’s home to accompany him to games or athletic events. She wasn't permitted to work, she wasn’t permitted to game without him. He had many other women. This didn’t bother her when she was allowed to participate, but… The fact that her master seemed to genuinely enjoy her company made it especially hard to resist.
In her heart of hearts, she has to confess to herself that--if he weren’t such a bastard--she’d still be there, his loving slave girl.
But the longer she served him, the more she learned exactly what kind of man he really was--and how many suffered for it. Sweat shops and flagrant pollution were the source of his wealth. He was self centered and churlish. He tormented his enemies and his lessers with glee.
Over the next year, Rindi used the cortex to make friends and connections. She showed proof of the Hypercorp’s misdeeds to the right people while bringing herself into the public eye as an example of their crimes. Eventually, Aaron’s father ordered him to emancipate Rindi before she could stir up any real trouble.
Once released, she moved to the slums of mars and ran with a band of rebels. Eventually one of her contacts recruited her into Fire Wall.
For both of these groups, she uses skills she honed as a gamer to become a formidable warrior.
