Samantha Taylor, A.K.A 'Flare', is a human woman of slightly above average height. Though not particularly physically impressive, due to her short stature and lack of consistent exercise, she has an extremely sharp mind. Her silky white hair falls to waist length when let down, though she prefers to tie it in two long ponytails to prevent it from getting too messy. Her fierce red eyes burn brightly with intelligence, but turn as gentle as the setting sun when she is speaking to her loved ones (especially her children). Her finger tips are often bandaged due to her ecclectic use of physical books; Despite her towering intellect and the technological world in which she lives, she never learned how to use a computer properly, and prefers to hold information directly in her own hands. Samantha prefers darker colors or black, blue, orange, and red on her clothing, but isn't too fond of fancy clothes. If she isn't dressed in a mage getup, she prefers comfortable and casual clothes.
Samantha is what you might call a "magic scholar", and though she is far from the only person who knows a bit about magic it would be fair to say she is a tad obsessed. Her entire education, and the bulk of her interest, lies solely in the collection of and research into magical lore. She reads magical textbooks instead of the morning paper while she is eating breakfast, and when she is too busy handling the kids she reads it late into the night. Besides her magical interests in magic, Flare is also a widowed mother of two. If she's not on a job, she's probably doing something with her children. The Job keeps them in a comfortable lifestyle, but Flare hasnt lost touch with her impoverished, ork roots. She still holds a deep resentment for corps, nations, and major gangs; Particularly the mafia, which she has learned is the organization directly responsible for her own family's tragedy. Though a soft, sweet mom type who distributes home-made oatmeal cookies and head pats to complete strangers, her demeanor will change drastically if someone under her care is threatened, especially her loved ones. You better hope you aren't on the wrong end of when mama bear starts to roar.

Samantha Taylor, AKA Flare, was born in a burned out and desolate medical clinic to an unknown mother. Abandoned shortly afterwards, Sam was taken in as a baby by a young ork couple who could not have children of their own. Her father made a modest living as a construction worker, and her mother was a housewife who spent most of her time taking care of Sam. Growing up, it was obvious Sam had magic talents and a sharp mind. Though their income was modest, her father and mother went to great lengths to get her an education in magic. She proved a gifted student, and despite the high standards of achievement and the low standards of living she had a happy childhood. Sam married early, to a handsome and respected Ork with big dreams, and together they had twins (a boy and a girl, Hunter and Rose respectively) in early 2082. Soon after, disaster struck when Sam’s husband’s ambition caught up with him. He had secretly been taking loans from some shady johnsons, and they had gotten tired of waiting for him to pay them back. On Easter Sunday 2082, a corp team broke into the family home and mistook Sam’s father for their target. They captured him, and killed everyone else there including her husband. Sam barely had a minute’s notice through spiritual aid to grab the children and run. Flare was forced to leave behind her comfortable life, and most of her material belongings. All she has are a few photos and a stalwart determination to provide for her children. Further, her circumstances have forced her to compromise on her morals, as shadowrunning is among the only options left to a SINless single mother (powerful mage though she may be). She wants to secure the safety of her children, find her father and rescue him, and lay down unfathomable hurt on the people who destroyed her family (in that order).
Narrative Significant Qualities
- Quick Healer: Flare is a gentle person, and tries her best to alleviate suffering. In another life, she might have been a spectacular nurse or doctor.
- Mentor Spirit (Bear): Flare is what some people might call a Mama Bear. She is nice and friendly until she has a reason not to be, at which point you can expect maximum force to be applied.
- Mentor's Mask: Flare's magic has a bit of flair to it, the illusory image of a great, fiery grizzly bear can be seen when she uses her magic.
- Photographic Memory: Flare has been much aided in her studies by her perfect recall. It's also handy for remembering if you left the oven on or the door unlocked.
- Albinism: Flare was born with a somewhat rare condition, which is why she has red eyes, pale white skin, and white hair.
- Computer Illeterate: Flare grew up in a poor environment, focused entirely on magical studies. She never had any talent or opportunity to learn much about the use of electronic devices.
- Dependent (Demanding): Flare has twins who are just over a year old. Hunter and Rose (her son and daughter respectively) take up the majority of her time when she isn't on a job, and her core reason for running is providing for them.
- Gremlins 1: On top of barely being able to use a computer, they seem prone to malfunction in her hands.
