News Van Dan
|Guerilla Reporter (Infobroker)|
|The Man with a Plan|
|Preferred Payment Method||Information|
The 'man with a plan,' Dan spends every day and night digging up news to deliver without corporate propaganda or spin - at least, news that nobody else wants to buy. These freebies are distributed through his news feed, sometimes scooping official sources. The best stories are reserved for his premium 'Van Man' members, who have access to information that 'can't be found anywhere else.' A skilled searcher of information, he moves around the city in his armoured 'news van,' accompanied by his intern/driver/bodyguard Angela.
News Van Dan is known to be a skilled Decker and Rigger, using his Shadow Warrior deck to pry the truth out from wherever it might be hiding and an assortment of drones to gather information that isn't on the matrix. He is fanatically devoted to what he does, believing that the corporations are all corrupt and lying to the people. His big passion is exposing the truth, and he will go to great lengths to get it out there.
News Van Dan is, however, paranoid. He believes that he "knows too much" and that the corps will take him out as soon as they get the chance so as to stop him from exposing the truth. Angela is often seen behind the wheel, driving his Ford Broadcast recklessly and fast in an attempt to lose any tail they might have.
|Infobroker||I got taps on everything that can take a tap. You want to know what's REALLY goin' on? I'm your man.|
|Conspiracy Theorist||I got all the deep info THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW. You deserve the truth they're trying to hide from ya.|
|Drone Operator||Okay, so, I got an army of recon drones I manage to get all kinds of info. People are a lot more open and honest about their machinations when they don't realize the truth is leaking out from behind their closed doors.|
|Hacktivist||This Shadow Warrior deck is not just a flashy bit of tech. It's the key to everything I do. I can get in and out of any secured host and walk away with whatever info they're hiding.|
