Character Information


Ork-posing street kid turned burnout Buddhist seeking nirvana.


  • Stay away from Renraku. Acquire a Red Samurai katana. Done.
  • Find a permanent squat.
  • Achieve enlightenment.


Born in Tarislar in 2060 to a relatively well-off family of Tir exiles who constantly talked of the motherland and dreamed of returning there. Naturally she rebelled, and growing up at the height of the orxploitation craze the easiest way to do so was by adopting trog culture to piss off her parents. However she found that she actually enjoyed Goblin Rock, and one night she stole the family minivan to go see Crime Time perform at Underworld 93, vibing so hard to the beat that she Awakened on the spot.

After experiencing a night like that, there was no way she was returning back home - instead she started living out of the car and hanging around the Ork Underground, even getting tusks and some biosculpting work done to fit in better. It took a while, but she eventually she found a group of friends in the Skraacha that accepted her presence. However she was constant need of money to survive, and eventually she found an opportunity for employment with Renraku when the megacorp started recruiting workers from the ranks of the SINless following the incorporation of the OU as an offical district of the Metroplex.

It turns out that she was just what Renraku was looking for - someone in the top physical percentile of agility and reaction speed who could be used to field test their new Move-by-Wire system. They gave her genetic treatments to maximize her physical prowess and her body's ability to accept cyber-augmentation, then wove a web of bio-fibers through her skin and laced her bones with metal for support before threading wires through her muscles and nerves; they also didn't ask her permission first, and evidently expected that the process would burn out what little magic she had. It didn't, and when she woke up after the surgery she heard the voice in her head urging her to kill the doctors with her bare hands, which she did, fleeing before security could catch up with her thanks to her new augments.

Making her escape, she took shelter with the Skraacha in the lower levels of the OU and started working for them as an enforcer, taking whatever work she could get it. While she's managed to make a bit of a name for herself and earn an invitation to join the Haven, lately she finds herself feeling unfulfilled with a life of violence and has started seeking solace in religion, taking up traditional Buddhist practices such as yoga and meditation as she attempts to find some semblance of inner peace and quell the raging spirit that dwells within her.

Narrative Significant Qualities


  • Biocompatability (Cyberware) + The Magician's Way
    • The only reason that she has any magic left - Samsara once walked the Burnout's Way, but has found a new path for herself.
  • Mentor Spirit (Thunderbird) + Mentor's Mask
    • A spirit of tranquil fury whispers into her mind, manifesting as sparks of lightning in her eyes whenever its power is called upon.
  • Daredevil + Toughness
    • Samsara isn't quite sure of the limits of her own strength or her augmented body's durability, but she's quite eager to find out.


  • Code of Honor: The Path of the Samurai
    • Samsara holds herself to a high standard of behavior in an attempt to emulate the warrior's spirit and honor code of her late mentor.
  • Ork Poser + Favored (Biased - Trogs)
    • Because tusks are just better.
  • Records on File + Wanted (Renraku)
    • Renraku has her biometrics on file, and has placed a six figure bounty on her head for theft of corporate property.

Hits Information Gained
1 Generally healthy, possible minor injuries, probably not intoxicated, Awakened.
2 No standard-grade cyberware. Magical Class: Adept. Has a dim amber-coloured shade to her aura.

Bioware: fake tusks, minor biosculpting to facial structure, bio-tattoos on back and shoulders, enhanced articulation in joints, orthoskin over entire body, pain editor in spinal chord, extra platelets in blood, reflex recorder in brain. Essence 1. Magic 8.
5+ No deltaware-grade implants. Has been genetically enhanced for increased agility and more holistic integration of cyberware, as well as increase tolerance to damage. No nano-tech. Not a technomancer.
