Character Information


"I could be in a penthouse in Hong Kong right now living the easy life. I'm here to show that I'm not just some poster boy."

Snowman is an elf who prefers the company of tusks. A would be Mafia prince who's insecurities lead to him causing too many problems and lead to him being ordered to go learn a lesson from his older brother in Hong Kong. Instead he fled west and is now trying to prove his capability by becoming a shadowrunner. You could argue that he's a Social Samurai with a with a few specialties that can catch eyes and a bravado that leaves him willing to try his hand at anything, but the truth is that he's just honest to god pure blooded crook.


  • Find a few jobs to get him out of the slums and into a decent apartment.
  • Build a substantial network of contacts in town.
  • Pull off a snowjob big enough to prove he can be an earner.
  • Get enough capital and local pull to open up a Neverland club in Seattle.


John is the second son of leader of the LB crime family. He grew up only hearing half of the story of how his father came to power. Like most he saw the famous video of the blue eyed butcher taking a knife to the leaders of rival gangs who's names are now forgotten. But he didn't hear how his ears were cut off for opposing the trafficking of orks or how the hard faced street samurai who keeps the neighborhood safer than Lone Star ever could, used to be a fresh faced attorney. All he saw was the Blue Eyed Butcher, the painting on the wall of an uncle that people toast a drink to but never say how he died, an older brother twice his size being put in charge of operations overseas, and younger brothers already bigger than him being groomed to do the same. He grew up surrounded by orks and trolls who looked to his father as a father figure and a leader. Despite being the spitting image of his father, he always just felt like the elf that had to be protected and kept away from the family business.

The only person who didn't treat him differently was his mother and when she died he decided that he'd earn his place at the family table the same way his father had earned his place at the head of the table. He sold as much as he could and went under the knife. Before he'd even recovered from the surgery he was making his way to kill the head of the the Silver Blade. Three days and a mountain of corpses later he was rescued by the team that his father sent to retrieve him. He wasn't even allowed to see him, just tossed in a room under guard to wait for what was decided. In the end it was decided that he would leave the country till the new conflict with the Silver Blade could be handled. He was supposed to board a plane to Hong Kong and work for his older brother so he could learn how to actually benefit the family. Instead he left in the middle of the night and made his way west intent on proving he could do it on his own. What better way to prove he was capable then to become a shadowrunner.

Narrative Significant Qualities


Alibi - John has been lying his way out of trouble since the day he could string a full sentence together.

Shoot First, Don't Ask - John has always been good at talking his way out of a bad situation but since he moved to Seattle people just don't seem interested in talking.

Too Pretty To Hit - Some might say that he's too pretty to hit, but the truth is he just slings enough insults or jokes to trip people up. Hard to hit a guy while you're laughing.

Biocompatibility (Cyberware) - John got his first augmentation when his little brothers hit puberty and realized they could kick his ass. Chrome is in his blood.


SINner - John is a citizen of the CAS though there are scarce few records under this name that would suggest he's anything but a normal person.

Creature of Comfort - While his father started as a street rat and worked his way out of the gutter, John is way too accustomed to nice things for his current position.

Allergy Mild Cats - It's annoying at most, but his eyes get all watery, skin gets red and really it's just not a good look on him.

CAS - Real - John Darling

UCAS - R4 Fake - Christian Noel


John is a tall conventionally handsome Elf. He is somewhat bulkier than one might expect though it is up for debate as to if this is from his mother's side or just a side effect from growing up roughhousing with orc brothers. Though the reality of it is probably the muscle replacements he got so he could survive that roughhousing. The most striking feature about him is his synthetic eyes which often let off a low blue glow.


He grew up with money and is fond of the finer things with a nice armored lining. Recent circumstances have left him having to downgrade his wardrobe a bit but while Mortimer of London might be the most fashion-forward line it's certainly better than slumming it in a scuffed-up armored synth leather duster.

Matrix Persona

Matrix Persona is similarly built in a fine suit and appears to be made of snow. No mouth and light blue glowing eyes. While he never showed any exceptional aptitude for hacking he does spend some time doing things he shouldn't on the grid, though it's more of a hobby and he never goes far enough that he could actually get caught.
