LIFESTYLE
Middle (¥5,000/monthly)
farao

Korben Deckard makes a pseudo-legitimate living on a 2077 version of Uber or Lyft specialized to his personal signal. Called “The Drive,” Korben operates this program through his personal vehicle and numerous proxy cars he controls remotely. It also serves as a way to contact higher profile contacts who need a Driver for special jobs (read: Shadowrunning and similar).

This business is not entirely on the level, but only because of the numerous vehicle-related charges brought against him by the Horizon MegaCorp which has shamed his reputation.

Korben lives in a mobile unit, a futuristic “tiny home” the size of a cargo container which can fit into any rented apartment structure. It is moved by Korben by remote-controlled Big Rig.

Note: Executive Thomas Haas works for the Horizon MegaCorp.

CONTACTS

The Inside Woman
Remarketable, assistant to the chief secretary for the vice-president of Aftermarket Sales, and a beauty to behold. A brilliant human woman, a native of the Pueblo Nation, and more than little on the edge, Rem legally changed her name when she joined with the Corp. She also sliced off half her hair, got a barcode tattoo of her SIN (self-identification number) on her neck, and styles herself in all the latest Corp-accepted fashion. Back when Deckard worked for Horizon MegaCorp, he and Remarketable dated in a big way. When the Boss threw him under the bus, however, she severed ties and was more than happy to get behind the wheel.

Now, Korben and Remarketable have an understanding. She needs the excitement and danger that comes with the Shadowrunner’s life, but doesn’t want the real threat to her way-of-life. She dances a razor’s edge dealing with him, but trades inside information for stories and the occasional task.

Chop Shop Terry
Terrance Nightingale, called Chop-Shop Terry by those who want to piss him off, the Nightingale by those who want to impress him, and just plain ol’ Terry to his friend. Note the singular friend, not friends, because Terry is an abrasive ol’ Ork, a true son-of-a-bitch in the proper sense who delights in fucking over everyone he can. Korben did his first “run” after being cast out of the Corporate World and Terry was the lead. The thing went tits up in a bad way and Korben had the opportunity to escape, did in fact in a blaze of glory, but for some reason known only to himself when the chance arrived to get out safe, Korben flipped a bitch, went back for the Ork, and got them out alive.

Terry provides Deckard with a regular supply of automated vehicles, new and rotated constantly to throw off the authorities. He also helps with parts and specialized labor when needed.

The Faraday Cage (modified Faraday Future, see picture) (p52)
“The Future is Now.”

Cost: ¥26K
Modifications/Notes: Boosters (1); Crew Space (1); Handling (1); Luxury (1); Speed (1)
- Handling provides +1 to Drive tests
One of the few lingering items from his days driving for the Horizon MegaCorp, Deckard modified this speed-demon luxury vehicle to his own personal style and taste. After removing identifying markers, chopping it up, tearing it down, and rebuilding alongside Terry from bottom-to-top, this new version of an old Faraday blows apart the competition. While Korben can drive just about any vehicle and prefers to operate his basic business using remote-control, this is the black beauty he gets inside when on the Run.
The Faraday Cage is a work in progress and could easily accept more modification. For now, it’s designed for speed, control, and maximum carrying capacity all hidden inside a vehicle which looks designed for ferrying business execs.

Note: Reference provided images of Faraday Future for idea behind this vehicle.

• Ace: Groomed as a defensive and skilled driver for the corporate elite for use against the dangerous Shadowrunners.
• Geared Up x2 and Luck: On the way out the door, Korben left with The Faraday Cage and it just so happened to have in its trunk a high quantity of specialized corporate tech which he parlayed into Nuyen.

STORY

Korben Deckard grew up in the Horizon MegaCorp Arcology in Las Vegas. Smart, savvy, and handsome, he grew not only to enjoy his time in the corporate structure, but to revel in it. He discovered a natural talent with vehicles at a young age and the execs placed him on the Drive Plan, a bureaucratic path designed to create skilled drivers with a suite of extra abilities. These Drivers are trained to get their cargo from one megastructure to another safely and to operate quickly within them. They have basic knowledge of weaponry and are hand-picked for their natural discretion.

Korben rose through the ranks with alarming speed, eventually being hand-picked by a major exec as a personal driver. Unfortunately for Deckard, Executive Thomas Haas had a tendency of pissing off the mob on the Vegas Strip. Throughout his time as Driver, Korben must have spent more than half traversing the dangerous side roads through the Sprawl and Strip ferrying his cargo back and forth.

One night, Haas got in deep with gambling debts, ditched the club, and called up Deckard for a quick egress. Knowing that the mob would try to trace him, Executive Haas left behind a trail of digital breadcrumbs which would lead them away from himself and to his driver. Minutes after dropping off his cargo and arriving home, Korben found himself the lucky winner of a complete beat down by the mob. They left him alive, just barely, to send a message to his boss.

The next day he was fired for gross negligence, misconduct, and endangerment of his boss. Knowing that being let go was tantamount to a death sentence, Deckard chose to beat the rap before it could beat him. He hit up his contact (Remarketable) for sure knowledge of the coming danger, stole the keys to his corporate car, and drove like a bat out of hell through the streets he knew best.

GOALS

Clear the Name. Korben would like to not be the regular target of traffic stops and the not-so-irregular pummeling that comes from the mob when they’re bored. Neither the privatized police force nor the mob care that he no longer works for Horizon MegaCorp. They simply use him as a proxy for their aggression against the Big Bad.

Total War. Executive Thomas Haas has to go down. Preferably after his own reputation is ruined, thrown in the trunk of a shitty rent-a-car, covered in his own blood and piss, and buried deep down in the sands outside the Dome. Deckard would love to give him a life support system and a thin string of hope, but he waffles back and forth on whether he wants to spend the cash.
