Thought I'd kick off a thread to provide some details on our characters for the campaign. I'll post my character for now, hopefully the rest of our group will chime in soon.
KEVIN 'L0K1' RYBACK
Origin Time: 1989
Former Profession: Bedroom Coder
Drive: Nowhere Else to Go
Appearance: Wavy black hair, bright blue eyes, slim build, wears blue hoodie and jeans, always wearing headphones around neck.
Kevin was a talented bedroom coder of the late 80s, doomed to an early demise courtesy of a drunk driver. Just another statistic. Except, when a mysterious rescuer intervened, his life was spared and time took on a new course. In the alternate future that resulted from his survival, Kevin went on to design a revolutionary piece of software a few years later: the first fully self-aware artificial intelligence. And, with its imperfect ethical programming, the intelligence known as ERIS would deem humanity too self-destructive to be left to their own devices, and decided to enslave them for their own good.
Timewatch stepped in to investigate the cause of the temporal disturbance and soon realised that Kevin was supposed to die. Rather than actually kill him, they faked his suicide by knocking him out, mem-tagging him and switching his body with a vat-grown, braindead clone.
This left Kevin without a life to return to, so he was offered a job and a new home with Timewatch. Though he does have occasional bouts of homesickness, he has taken to his new role with a playful sense of enthusiasm.
