Overview

Professor Linda Denman is an ogre Mathematics teacher at the Lordstrungs School in the Ork Underground. Well past her retirement age, she still teaches. There's no way she could make ends meet without it. It's truth, although a partial one: she learned to "augment" her income with small-time fixing. Infinitely patient for her students, she's a bright mind hidden in an unassuming body.

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Manners Maketh Man Linda is an old-school lady, first and foremost, and will not tolerate breaches of common courtesy or hospitality in her presence, real or imaginary. After all, what example would it set for her students. When attempting to contact her, make an Etiquette test. On no hits OR a glitch, she'll refuse to work with you until appropriate amends have been made, subject to GM discretion.
Woman of Principle Linda is fussy, ahem, "selective", about who she works with. She fancies herself the guide for those she teaches. Notoriety has a double penalty when dealing with this contact. Subtract twice the runner's Notoriety from any check she's asked to do.
Halls of Academia Yes, she's taken to small-time fixing due to unsustainable teacher pensions, but she teaches still and it's her element. Linda has a variety of academic skills and makes those checks at +2.
Thoughtful Teacher Linda has been a Mathematics teacher at the Lordstrungs School for a long, long time. Instruction is her best active skill and she will gladly help you learn new things with it.
Mathemagics Being an ork didn't stop her bright mind. Linda is skilled at abstract thinking, with ware like her Math SPU or the Attention Coprocessor to aid her further. She makes Mathematics and related tests at +2.
Ork Underground Local Having lived in the Ork Underground all her life and having taught generations of local children, Linda has the respect of her neighbors from the shopkeepers at Lordstrungs to the Skraacha. If you're polite and she doesn't think you'd take advantage of them, she will leverage those connections. She makes tests related to the area, the locals and gangs present at +2.
Student Body If you ever studied at the Lordstrungs School, Linda probably knows you. Networking checks with former students (GM discretion) are at +2.
Trog Historian While not her professional interest, she's into ork and troll culture. The Black Forest, King Juan Carlos II, Neil the Ork Barbarian. She can tell you much about such topics. She's also a decent networker with the tusked people. Tests related to ork and troll culture or Networking with its representatives are at +2.
