Dezeroth A'kyer grew up with a single mother who worked at one of the many free clinics in Seattle. His Father was some middle manager for Saeder-Krupp, that much he knew, but he never met the man. With only a single source of income, the two weren't able to live a luxurious lifestyle, but fortunately his father had been generous during the time he'd given Dezeroth's mother attention, and so they had a house to live in. During his teens, Dezeroth awakened as an Alchemist and thought this would be a prime opportunity to move up in the world; he joined the army, where he was assigned to military intelligence as one of their many mages. He quickly showed a talent for field-work and so was groomed as a field operative.
Oddly enough, it wasn't the CIA who approached him during this time, but the IRS, who saw his talents as something usable as a spy against the Corporations; the UCAS nominally used this department to ensure that any expenses that the Corporations might have accrued working with the government were paid in full, but in reality was more of a private intelligence agency used for the internal power-struggles of the upper echelons of the UCAS in the Megacorporations. Dezeroth happened to be very good at his job, and largely indifferent to chaos his intelligence-gathering might bring to the Megas.
Unfortunately for him, he happened to be very good at his job. While this didn't necessarily upset any of the Megacorporations, Ares did see value in recruiting him, and hired a Shadowrunner extraction team to do just that. It was very lucky for him, then, that Saeder-Krupp had decided to get him removed from his position before he was able to uncover a particularly nasty secret, and so had hired a team of their own--Who clashed with the Ares team and allowed for him to escape with his life and freedom. He was out of a job and had only just slipped through the cracks. As far as the former spy was concerned, there was only one place left for him to move...
Narrative Significant Qualities
- Trust Fund 1
Technically less of a Trust Fund and more of the result of living with his mother.
- Black Market Pipeline: Magic, Elias Wendell
A colleague and the source of Dezeroth's more expensive hardware, Elias Wendell is one of Dezeroth's closest friends.
- Mentor Spirit: Firebringer
Somewhat ironic to Dezeroth, as Fire Giants are typically not seen as friendly to humans, Dezeroth chooses to interpret his mentor spirit as the aftermath of Odin's work.
- National SIN
Dezeroth is a resident of the UCAS, and in fact once worked for the IRS.
- Records on File: Ares
While technically a nuisance at one point for all the Megacorps, Ares in particular is keen to recruit Dezeroth.
- Part Time(Talismonger)
Dezeroth operates a Talismonger shop out of his ancestral home.
Dezeroth is old enough to have lived through the first Goblinization.

Dezeroth A'kyer(Legal SIN)
Jaymes Valluche(R4 Fake SIN)
For a man of 68 years, Dezeroth has a surprisingly youthful appearance. Were it not for his silvering hair, he'd look like a man in his 40s, though he's beginning to show signs of the frailty that comes with age. Whether this could be attributed to Leonization treatments or simply graceful aging is unclear. His swept-back hair, more silver with each year that passes sits above a smiling and amiable face, looking as though he'd like nothing more than to engage in an academic discussion. Standing straight, he's 6'3". He weighs around 150 lbs. His high cheekbones and sharp, green eyes wouldn't look to have aged a day, were it not for the weathered skin
Dezeroth prefers to wear tailored suits, oftentimes paired with a sufficiently old-man-esque hat; a good derby or newsboy cap, depending on the mood and situation.
Dez doesn't opt for anything too fancy. Oddly, however, he also doesn't opt for the traditional high-res recreation of himself. Instead, he chooses a pair of 3-D sunglasses, simply floating in the Matrix.
