Dakota is a liaison from the SSC Rangers to any… questionable assets. The Rangers don’t like outsiders but understand the value they can bring. She usually spends her days with her booted feet kicked up on her desk in her office on Council Island playing games.

As a fox shifter, she grew up in the wilds and moved into the city when she was very young. The Rangers snatched her up due to her natural magical ability. They gave her rights and a National SIN. She worked out in the wilderness for a few years before being transferred to Blackstone Prison as part of a personnel exchange with the Sioux Nation. She spent four years at that place tracking down awakened criminals and threats.

Four years was all she could stand before requesting a transfer. She was asked to go back out in the wilderness again but wanted to take it easy for a few years. They stuck her behind a desk on Council Island. They also gave her the annoying job of dealing with Shadowrunners, Corpo goons, The other Nations, and Mercs. She doesn’t take any shit so be professional when you deal with her.

She still does fieldwork but it’s all at her discretion. She can't call in any other personnel backup for Runners due to her current posting.

She is a Magic 6 Aware who carries an assault rifle, combat axe, pistol, tomahawks, and wears Custom FBA with a Voidblack cloak. She drives a Dodge Minotaur around.

GM tips

  • Dakota hates being stuck in her office. She looks for any excuse to get out and do something.
  • She can provide visitation to Council Island if you need it.
  • She is a decent stand in as an extra Street Sam or an addition that specializes in dealing with awakened threats. Dakota is a Ranger and should be taken seriously as a threat.
  • As an SSC Ranger she enjoys extraterritoriality in Seattle. However, she has been warned not to push it.
