First homework, after the initial get-together and character generation.
- What is his or her background?
Background? What the fuck you wanna know my background for? I'm a dwarf. No, don't shake your head. I know you noticed. Why else you askin' 'bout my background? I know you don't give a fuck. Just lookin' for some sob story 'bout the slums, make you feel better 'bout your cheap flat. Hey, come back here, I ain't done with you yet! You can't just walk away from me, like I'm some dumb hot-head. Sure, I'm mad. You try walking around bein' polite to people when you gotta be lookin' up their noses all damn day. 'Specially when they're the ones ruinin' every damn thing they touch. Spewin' chemicals an' shit. Know why you eat that soy crap all day? 'cause they can't make real animals grow no more, so's they gotta use plants, an' bacteria. You ever heard o' DNA poisoning? You eat that soy shit every day for 60 years, it'll kill ya'. That shit builds up; it's toxic. Background. Shut yer damn mouth.
- Roughly, what are his or her capabilities?
Look, you fix a guy's arm one time, try'n do the right thing, yeah? So he calls you Doc for the rest of your damn life. So I ain't doin' that shit no more, 'cept in special situations. I gotta mission, see? Corps don't like it; they send mooks. One mook. A hunnert mooks. Don't much matter. Take 'em out. Done some sneakin' once, twice. Mostly blowin' up pollution machines an' settin' corp veeps straight, when I get hold a' one, these days.
- Why does s/he want to risk liberty, life, and limb for a hojillion space bucks?
Risking life and liberty? Boy, you ain't been payin' attention. Ya' risk life an' liberty just takin' the tube to work these days. World's goin' straight to hell. 'f I'm gonna let some damn corp kill me, it's gonna be 'cause a mook gets lucky with an AK, not 'cause they poisoned the planet and got me 'long with everyone else.
- Would you like to have already known and/or worked with one another, or be assembled by the bank roll?
These yokels? Yeah, I've seen 'em around. Mostly know their shit.
