Trample is a centaur in the sixth world, this means that to most official entities she is considered as a pet at best. But she gets by, working as a Wheel woman and doing runs to finance her life while she is looking for a partner she had to leave behind and who ended up in Seattle.
- Find her partner she had to leave behind when she was freed.
- Get an official SIN, and be recognized as a sentient being as many others are.
- Get her fixer, Prof Riley, to mentor her in trying to get better at computer or cyber-combat.
- Show the world that the shadows are a force for good when the culture is right.
Trample originates from the CAS, where she lived in a nomadic herd. Growing up, she was named "Breathless currents" due to her tendency to be brash and reckless, sometimes scoring incredible feats of bravery on a split second descision but more often than not tiring herself out in the process. She had a middle position in the hierarchy of the herd, granting her a level of training above simple hunting : she was going to be a protector wielding one of the few combat weapons they had to defend themselves against external threats.
During her puberty years, she was designated to guard and set-up a camp on the periphery of the safe territorry, to isolate young females during their yearly cycles and "keep the peace" in the herd. The camp being lightly protected, it is often a target of badly intentionned groups of Metahumans looking for easy money. Most of these attacks are pretty easily pushed back due to the often inadequate equipment of those groups in the forest.
A fatefull day however, the camp was attacked by a team of experienced poachers, as soon as the camp had a reason to belive it was under attack, Breathless Currents sprung to action and started swinging her ancestral polearm at her ennemies, striking down one or two and getting the attention of the attackers while the rest of the herd scrambled. Soon enough, she started to feel light headed, as a sleeping dart had striked true in the begining of the confrontation, it was not long before she fell to the ground and passed out.
She woke up in a cage, with two other centaurs she recognized from her herd, one was slightly younger than herself and the other an adult protector, which was obviously wounded at her front legs. The months that would follow they would be "trained" with techniques that could be considered torturous and exposed in a back market circus in the CAS. Their malnourishment chronic abuse led to an incident on a set, as the older protector broke her leg and it was judged too pricy to replace, they led her out of view before a detonation was heard. From then on, they were only the two of them and their bond would only grow.
Months passes with little really changing, their bodies wasting away and moral at the lowest. In the middle of what seemed like an average afternoon however, detonations made themselves heard from a corridor connected to the room containing the cages. Faster than they could process the events they were seeing a sam and their team barged in, shooting in the corridor while a decker started looking for and unlocking the cage of a seemingly normal critter. The decker then started making it's way back towards his team, but made eye contact with Breathless currents midway, to which she responded with a cry for help in the bad, broken english she learnt over her captivity. Taken aback by the experience, the decker had a time of hesitation before deciding to plug into the lock of their cage contrary to his team's instructions. Ten seconds later, the door opened and without waiting, Breathless currents was out, but her partner was too weak to come at this point.
With no way to move her, and the runners moving out quickly, she promised that she would come to free her however long it would take and nuzzled the young one before taking off and running after her benefactors. They were pinned as cover fire kept them from counter-attacking, but Breathless currents, in her usual fashion galloped right in. Seeing her come the decker DDOS'd the ennemy's gun just in time for most bullets to miss as she barelled straight in the middle of the corridor, utterly trampling the shooter in the process and quickly finding her way outside.
There, a rigger was waiting for the team, that ended up taking her with them to their bolt hole. With this team, Trample would get her runner name, first jobs and train, accompanied with the team's decker who took her in as somewhat of an apprentice. Over the next two years she would hone her skills and learn about the matrix as well as english, with time better and better jobs came to her untill she deemed herself ready to take on freeing her partner she had to leave behind. Her instinct led her to seattle and it's larger area, now she has to turn up every stones on her way to finding her.
