Character Information



Arina was born in Russia and emigrated to the UCAS with her parents when she was very young. She found her love of cooking from her parents, and her love of dance when when she was 9 after watching a ballet through a window. Shadowrunning is a means to an end... she's not against the Corporations, but she's not for them either. As of right now, her motivation is money and skill.

Arina Semenova was born in Russia to poor working class parents. After watching a beutiful ballet through a window when she was 9, and seeing her mother and fathers love of food and cooking, Arina decided that she would become a world class ballet dancer and chef. Arina unfortunately realized soon after that her physical ability would never match up to what was necessary to fulfill either of these goals. So when she was old enough, she set out to earn as much money as she could to upgrade her body. If she couldn't naturally have the grace, speed, and strength necessary, she would simply buy it. After years of hard work, she was able to fully replace her limbs with cyberware, granting her the physical prowess to begin chasing her goals. Realizing the power the cyberware gave her, she wanted to get upgrades to make her even better, so she took to completing more... unsavory... jobs, and began working for whoever would pay as a gun for hire. Realizing that her cyber upgrades were a valuable asset in the shadows, Arina took jobs that allowed her to utilize the ability that she had bought, and honed her skills into a fearsome weapon. She took the shadow name 'Six_of_Hearts' after she won an 85,000 nuyen pot in a poker game with nothing but a 6 of hearts high card, which allowed her to finally ugrade her cyber limbs to alpha grade cyberware, seeing it as a lucky sign that allowed her to fully transition to a career in the shadows.

Arina is fond of alcohol, guns, ballet, cooking, cars, learning new things (primarily languages), and the finer things in life. She is, however, obsessed with getting the best cyberware that money can buy, gunning for the cash and chance to buy delta grade cyberware. she loves the feel of the cold metal as well as the beauty of a finely crafted and honed machines that are her cyberware. The fusion of woman and machine is a feeling that she enjoys, not to mention the slight unnerving effect it has on many people. She likes being in control, and having her cyberware lets her feel like she is in control.

She didn't have much help as a fledgling shadowrunner, so she aims to use any resources she acquires to open her restaurant and set it up to be a haven for shadowrunners, and utilize any contacts she has made to assist runners in need.

Narrative Significant Qualities


  • Ambidextrous: Anita has always been good with either hand for whatever task.
  • Biocompatibility: Anita's body easily accepted the cyberware she is so fond of.
  • Cyber-Singularity Seeker: Anita is confident in her cyberware's ability to see her through any job.
  • Linguist: Learning new languages has always been easy for Anita.
  • Agile Defender: That Terracotta round hurt like shit. let's AVOID the bullets instead of SURVIVING them.
  • Candle in the Darkness: Anita sticks to her principles and values... and those around her can see it.
  • Common Sense: Not so common nowadays. Thankfully, Anita isn't so common herself.
  • Honest Face: Why would she lie?
  • Redliner: Alice cranked her limbs up to 11!
  • Shoot First, Don't Ask: That Terracotta round hurt like shit. Maybe kill them BEFORE they shoot you next time?
  • Daredevil: For some reason, she keeps jumping onto and in front of grenades... I'm sure it's fine.
  • Catlike: She's getting better at this whole stealth thing.
  • Perfect Time: Timing is everything.
  • Drug Tolerant: Do enough drugs, and eventually they become easier to resist. Not always a good thing, btw.
  • Jack of all Trades, Master of None: Anita has been learning a lot of new skills lately.
  • Special Modifications: Tinker, tinker, tinker.
  • Guts: Fear is only as strong as you allow it to be.
  • Legendary Rep [Ancients]: Yeah, she saved the entire Seattle Ancients chapter, no big deal.
  • Sharpshooter: Gotta make those shots count, Omae.
  • Strive for Perfection: Sometimes you just have to be the best.
  • Toughness: You though she was hard to take down before, huh?
  • Tough as Nails (Physical x2): Now with even more soak tank power!
  • Ronin: 6 follows her own code, leading her to be a lone wolf at times. She's gotten better at dodging incoming attacks, and her body has adjusted to the massive amounts of implanted bio-ware on a scale similar to her cyber-ware.
  • Panzer: 6 has survived so much shit thrown her way she's literally a metahuman tank in terms of ability to withstand damage, and as such very little can instill fear in her.


  • Distinctive Style: Anita's Cyberlimbs are decorated in a unique color palette of matte white with silver tracings shaped like dancing ballerinas, and she has a large stylized heart on each of the main joints (hips and shoulders) with six bleeding bullet holes in them. This extends to her ballistic mask which possesses the same heart design, her FBA which also has the heart design on the helmet in addition to the main joints, and even her shield has a large stylized heart with 6 bleeding bullet holes in it.
  • Signature: Anita always leaves a Six of Hearts playing card at the end of her runs. This is the card she considers most lucky, and her runner namesake.
  • Weak Immune System: The immunosuppressants used by the Doctors to install her cyberware were unnecessary, but have had a lasting effect on Anita's body.
  • Addiction (Mild, Kamikaze/Novacoke): Drugs are bad, m'kay? Also Anita might have a problem...
  • Addiction (Moderate, Betameth): Things are getting a little worse.
  • Code of Honor: Anita will go out of her way, and even put herself in danger, to protect others. She will do just about anything she can to prevent those who are injured from dying.
  • Dependent (Demanding): Anita has a liquor cabinet stocked with nearly 100 spirits and liquors from around the world, as well as various mixology utensils, expensive crystal, and various mixers and additives. She also uses real and quality ingredients in her cooking, many of which are rare, by 2082 standards, or require importation. Girl has expensive tastes.
  • No Man Left Behind: Leaving Swerve to be captured by the Order of the Temple left a real bad taste in Anita's mouth. It won't happen again.

In Character Information

Symbols and Signatures

Anita's signature is a slightly modified Six of Hearts playing card. The card is modified so that the six hearts that make up the central design each have a single bleeding bullet hole in them.

Matrix Search Table

Threshold Result
1 One of the fifty-two playable cards in a regulation deck of standard playing cards. Including the two Ad and two Joker cards, the Six of Hearts would be the eighth card from the top of the deck, and the fourty-ninth card from the bottom, in standard new deck order.
3 Someone with the username "<3<3<3<3<3<3" frequents multiple cooking, baking, and mixology forums. The user, who is typically referred to as simply "Hearts", often offers advice to novice chefs and mixologists, including unique twists on classic dishes and drinks.
6 A modified six of hearts playing card has been found at multiple high profile crime scenes across the world, including a digital one sent to the late Seattle District Attorney Mark Donaghy after a foiled assassination attempt.

Shadow Community Table

Threshold Result
1 An FLR runner with the callsign "Six of Hearts" showed up about two and a half years ago. Many of her associates attest her cooking is pretty damn good. Leaves a customized six of hearts playing card on each of her runs as a signature.
3 Frequently going by the shortened moniker of "6", this runner has an impressive track record as a weapons and stealth specialist, B&E expert, and shield bearer for her team. She follows her own code of ethics and is well respected by members of the shadow community. Despite her relatively young age, she gives of a very motherly energy, and frequently invites associates to her home to enjoy a home-cooked meal.
5 Six of Hearts has ties with The Ancients, including several high profile Lieutenants. She is capable of changing her look and voice with, what is likely, implanted cyber- and bioware, so not many know what she actually looks and sounds like.
