Alexis Faraday (character)
« on: February 21, 2017, 10:16:00 pm »
NAME: Alexis Faraday
FACTION: No permanent faction, joins whoever pays the most or is in line with current goal.
RANK: N/A
SPECIES: Human Cyborg
AGE: Unknown, looks to be in their mid 30's.
SEX: Female
HEIGHT: 5'8''
WEIGHT: 235  lb (from bionic augmentations.)
EYES: Shifts according to the current eye function, blue when using simple sight.
HAIR: Short straight red hair the reaches the shoulders. Usually not visible due to armor.
SKIN: Face is slightly tan, as if returning from a day in the summer sun. Rest of her is a metallic light gray.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES : Bionic augmentations now regulate most function making her biology only supplementary. This has the following pros and cons.
Pros:
-Fine tuned senses - Every sensory organ has been replaced or augmented to make her senses as sharp as they can be.
-Multi functionality - Eyes can detect, albeit not "see" light from the entire spectrum. Light from outside the visible light spectrum is given as information like seeing through infrared googles/scope. Also has many tools and measurement devices implanted, anywhere from screwdriver and thermometers to lasers and hacking modules. This has cause her to constantly be asked ,"You have something for this?"
-Augmented abilities - Strength, mental capacity and reflexes are increased beyond human limit. (keywork human)
-Limited biological needs - Very little need for food, water, disposal of waste or sleep.
-Regeneration - Implanted bionics can repair biological tissue quickly and damage bionics an be repair or replaced, time to repair/install replacement bionics depends on what was broken.

Cons:
-Limited power supply - Runs on storage batteries that recharge by movement, non-ionizing radiation and plain old electrical current. If Main power runs out, Alexis goes to a backup power supply that only supplies power to not very power intensive tools/weapons or enhancements. If this runs out then the body shuts down all non essential systems (movement, life-support, essential senses like sight) and powers what is active by actively burning the body's food reserves increasing the metabolism to the point that starvation is a real possibility within 48 hours.
-Pathogens/Malware: Being both biological and having software, Alexis is vulnerable to both pathogens and malware that affects any particular organ or bionic system.
-Electrical Pulses: While being partially protected, strong enough electromagnetic pulses can damage, shutdown or even destroy sensitive bionics as well as drain the power supply.
-Reputation: Being loyal to the highest bidder or those who aline with her goals makes alexis not trusted on long term operations. Coupled with the fact that much of her humanity is gone literally and figuratively has given alexis not much social experience and it shows.

APPEARANCE:
All skin is replaced by a light grey skin like material, only the face looks like skin but it isn't. Usually wears light body armor that covers all but upper section of the face so this is known mostly by second hand accounts. This applies to her hair as well. The body armor is a very simplistic black kevlar reinforced armor to stop kinetic attacks (blunt melee, bullets, etc.) with storage pockets in the torso, waist and legs. Nothing special but protects long enough to neutralize the attacker.
 
BIOGRAPHY:
Not much is know about Alexis. What is know is that she was unwilling augmented to serve as a super-weapon by a government fighting a revolution on some inconsequential human planet. Alexis was under the control of some mind altering malware that was used to control brain-augmented cyborgs. The government itself was eventually over thrown and Alexis exiled; the planet itself is not even on the maps so only those who ask or know their politics are pervy of this information. What Alexis was made to do during that time is something she keep to herself.
Much of her biology has been stripped away and has cause her some changes to her personality as well. The frontal lobes was heavily altered seeing that its functions of social interactions could be replaced with more brain power this has cause her issues with social interactions in and out of operations. Her moral compass is lacking since she was to be used as a weapon in the first placed and mind control malware can only take you so far. She has no real friends because of this and the fact that she is constantly on the move from objective to objective. Her reproductive organs were also removed to strip her of any sexual desires as these were deemed detrimental and to use the space for more augmentations. If holding a friendship is hard, then a relationship is impossible.
ARMANETS:
-Nanocarbon blade: An implanted short sword used for CQB. Continues sharpening when stored makes it sharp and it material makes it hard to break but when it does it is hard to get a replacement.
-Hand lasers: Rapid fire laser form the palms of the hand offer both weak but raid fire lasers to energy expensive powerful continuous lasers. Works best on unarmored enemies and biology.
-Kinetic Rail Cannon: Mounted on the Right arm is a mounted rail gun to take out armored enemies. Because of the small size of the cannon and ammunition, it usually takes multiple shoot to down a target depending on what it is. Holds 25 shells.
-Flame throwers: Laser systems can be used to ignite air in atmosphere with rich oxidizing agents; flames can be guided via weak lasers or be used as explosives.
-E.M.P: Can fire electric-pulses to damage near by electronic devices.
-Sensory overload system: The user can emit blinding strobing light and high decibel sound to disorient enemies.

ARMOR:
-Body Armor: A simple black kevlar reinforced armor to stop kinetic attacks. Cannot take much abuse but is main purpose is to take a few hits until Alexis takes down the attacker(s).
-Outer Bionic Armor: The skin-like outer sensory system also acts as armor as well. Mainly used to stop weakened attacks the barely managed to pass the body armor to not damage the internal organs/bionics.
-Inner Bionic Armor: Implemented around key areas is robust nanocarbon armor to protect biological organs and important bionic systems. While very though it is meant to keep the user alive by protecting vitals and not exactly in fighting condition. Anything that can break her CQB sword can pierce the armor as well.
KILLS: Many a lowlife.

So I've read this over, written a response, re written said response two times now, and finally realized I can sum up why I'm not approving this at the moment in a much shorter response.

Whilst everything this character is based on are feasible additions, nothing that would allow it to exist has been written and approved. If there were an existing company, or lore, or really anything as far as augmentation goes I'd have far less of a problem with this character. But like I said nothing for any of the equipment or abilities for this character has been written.

I have a few other issues with the character, but at the moment this is the biggest reason and the one that I can't really bend on. I'm not trying to be rude and I apologize if I come off like that but it's simply a matter of the content within the character itself isn't approved.

As is I just don't think I can approve it, and I do think the general concept is interesting even though I personally think the character looks to be a bit OP.

I understand, with this being the first character I wrote it was to test my waters. So then I need to match characters to current companies/lore or write it myself then? What should I do then, start from scratch and read up on established companies and lore or submit them for approval and then re-write this according to that?

What should I do then, start from scratch and read up on established companies and lore or submit them for approval and then re-write this according to that?

So basically there's a couple of things that could be done. You could write up companies and tech and weapons to support the character, at which point it'd be reviewed with the new content in mind. This is a good amount of work as any product has to have a company that it comes from so it could end up being multiple companies.

If you just want to get a character out without having to write up anything new and have it go through the approval process then the fastest way is to just go with currently approved content, at which point most characters get approved relatively quickly.

Anyone can submit content, it'll go through the approval process just like my content does. It'll need two GMs to approve it, at which point the company/product/etc is considered canon and is usable. So the option to go ahead and make the supporting content is there it's just a matter of how much effort you want to put in.

At the end of the day it's up to you what route you want to take. I hope this is at least some what helpful, I'm rather tired so I'm hoping it makes some sort of sense.

I think the other thing to mention is that the majority of this tech is probably beyond human capabilities. Lork would be better to weigh in on this, since he's the official humans guy. But:

-Nanocarbon blade: An implanted short sword used for CQB. Continues sharpening when stored makes it sharp and it material makes it hard to break but when it does it is hard to get a replacement.
-Hand lasers: Rapid fire laser form the palms of the hand offer both weak but raid fire lasers to energy expensive powerful continuous lasers. Works best on unarmored enemies and biology.
-Kinetic Rail Cannon: Mounted on the Right arm is a mounted rail gun to take out armored enemies. Because of the small size of the cannon and ammunition, it usually takes multiple shoot to down a target depending on what it is. Holds 25 shells.

That stuff would all seem to be well beyond things humans would be capable of making - they don't apparently use hand held railguns, and their lasers are both expensive and inefficient, or pretty big. While it's not perhaps incredibly clear, the tech level of humanity is, for the most part, limited to stuff we'll see in the next 20-30 years or so.

There is a human cybernetics company in the lore already (or awaiting approval, I don't remember), so if you cut that above mentioned stuff out, I'd give it an approval. Otherwise, I'd suggest making this dude come from a higher-tech race like the Norenfal who have the (unwritten but implied) tech to actually carry this whole thing out.
Gone. Cheers guys.

So go minimalistic with the aforementioned company or change race. Is that the gist of it? If so, I will dig around and re-write this character.
