Bio:

Appearance:
Scarlet is a little below average height and with an athletic build, though more lithe and lissom than strong and powerful. Her red hair is at shoulder-length and usually worn open, and her eyes are of a vibrant green. When she is in her ‘work dress’, she wears a tight-fitting black armor suit with several pieces of discreet armor plates along her limbs. When not covered, it is immediately obvious, that her lower right arm is cybernetic. The metallic surface is covered with lanes resembling a circuit, where dim green lights constantly dance across. The datajack on her right temple is similarily accentuated.

Scarlet

Moral Outlook:
During her eight years in the military, Scarlet has adopted a rather protective nature for the UCAS and its people. She would never willingly harm innocents, especially children, regardless of their nationality or metatype. Furthermore, she has a strong dislike for the megacorporations, believing that they are only amassing power for themselves and do not care one bit about the ones that get trampled under their machinations. She believes, that they should take more responsibility in their doings. Scarlet is no angel, however, and has performed a number of illegal acts in her former and current life. She wouldn’t think twice to pull the trigger, if it is necessary, but she won’t accept wetwork jobs, unless she considers the target absolutely deserving.

Background:
Cathy has always been a computer wiz, even in her teens she has hacked her way around the Matrix, broke into various systems, cracked software, and so on. She has always been a bit of a free thinker as well. By the time she became an adult, she had developed quite a mistrust for the big corporations, and she simply couldn’t see her living the life of a corporate wage slave. Instead, she joined the military, where she could put her skills and talents to good use. Being physically fit also helped. After a four years of basic training and a desk job in the UCAS Army Intelligence Corps, she got assigned to a combat unit, doing frontline electronic warfare and electronics support, handling security systems and the likes. During her time in the service, she had further improved her computer knowledge, and also acquired some combat skills. Additionally, she got quite an impressive collection of implants over the years, most of them supporting her primary talents. When a grenade malfunctioned and exploded right in her hand, taking the whole lower arm with it and severely wounding her, she ended up with a cyber replacement, because cloning was considered too expensive. At least, it was a customized model, and not just some run-of-the-mill cyberlimb. It made her faster and stronger, at least that part of her, just like the advertisement said.

After eight years, her military career came to an end, and now she was looking for other means to make a living. The corporations were still out of question, so she slowly faded into the shadows. Cathy was gone and Scarlet was born. Having broken numerous laws already in the past, especially when it comes to software copyrights, she felt right at home. Her military background also was quite an asset for this kind of work, which is known for its inherent dangers, and the years in the combat unit where basically a live training center for shadowrunning. The first shadow jobs were easy and brought her a steady income. She quickly noticed, however, that she needed an edge to get into the really good jobs. Further augmentation was the obvious option, but a cost-intensive one. Furthermore, her software needed continuous updating to stay state-of-the-art. That was a bit easier, when the military paid the bills and she only had to fill out some virtual paperwork. The funds she had acquired so far weren’t quite enough, so she does some legal work as a freelance security consultant in addition to her shadow work. She also loaned a big sum from some shady dealers, in order to get it done. Of course, there were hefty interests involved, but hopefully the jobs would be able to cover those. So much for the theory.
