Could I be a robot?

Sure. But you gotta have Asimov's Rules (but you really don't, just don't let the crew see you doing unauthorized killings).
So, just see how long it takes everyone else to realize I am a rogue AI? Cool.
Thanks Peri for making me question muh sexualities once again.

This Highway will have some dank memes. (I might have to cycle through the most popular subtitles, one for each day.)

I ****ING FOUND IT

Name: The Prodigy
Age: 10
Background: He's the son of a couple of survivors who were bionics nuts and lived close to a science lab. When the cataclysm struck, they raided it for bionics and installed a lot of them. They met later and had Prodigy. When he was very young, he got shot by some bandits. His parents gave him the best care, and of course, the best bionics. When he grew up a little more, he showed an interest in the bionics that had saved his life. He taught himself how bionics worked and even learned enough surgery to install them himself. He has a lot of passive bionics to replace the functions he lost in the accident. He also has a bunch of other bionics that he installed himself, some that he even designed.
Description: Pale and thin from staying in his workshop, with grimy clothes and an odd look to his piercing blue eyes.
Inventory: t-shirt, jeans, jacket, backpack, water bottle
Skills: [Expert Surgeon] [Expert Mechanic] [Master Electrician]
Traits: [Weak] [Pale] [Savant] [Light Eater] [Fast Reader]
Passive Bionics: Integrated Toolset, Enhanced Hearing, Joint Torsion Ratchet, Metal Skeleton (bones cannot be broken), Enhanced Capacitors (can absorb electricity to charge power banks)
Active Bionics: Metabolic Interchange, Blood Analysis, Blood Filter, Finger-Mounted Laser, Fingerhack, Internal UPS, Leukocyte Breeder System, Electroshock Unit, Advanced Repair Nanobots (able to be targeted), Experimental Jetpack (limited and unreliable flight)

EDIT: I think that's good

Name: Des Platt
Age: 28
Gender: Male
Race: Human (humans are my fetish)

Weapon: Nordic Shortsword, complete with leather grip and round hand guard. Two UZIs, one with blueish metal and one with red. The color does not change the way they function in the slightest and it just looks cool.
Uniform: Road Warrior Breastplate: A bunch of old road signs hammered into the shape of a breastplate and tied together with leather strips. A huge red stop sign dominates the front and the rest have all had their paint removed.
Long Sleeved Shirt: It's faded, red shirt with sleeves that go down to your wrists. Pretty standard attire.
Denim Jeans: Nothing special, just some comfy jeans.
Combat Boots: Something he picked up at the local military surplus store ruins. They've got way too many straps to be reasonable, but he thinks they look cool.
General Inventory: A beat-up canteen full of some weird water-like fluid. A burnt photograph of a rock with googly eyes attached to it. The rock featured in the aforementioned photograph. A dusty silver Flippo lighter. Three used glowsticks. An ancient cherry bomb. A paperclip. Two pieces of string. A nickel.

Perks: [Quick Hands] [Rugged Good Looks]
Traits: [Observant] [High Adrenaline] [Not Quick Anywhere Else] [Not Wise] [Quick To Tire]
Skills: [SMG 3] [Sords 2] [Whiskey Drinkin' 17] [Hitting Stuff 4] [Dodging Stuff -1] [Takin' Hits 5]
Backstory: Born and raised with a family of travelling mercenaries, he picked up quickly the ways of shooting first and asking questions later (except when that question was of pay). When his father was shot down and his mother ran off with some asshole biker dude named Steve, Des was forced to forge his own way in the world with a copious amount of edge and daddy issues. Not really, of course. He got along pretty well, taking odd jobs here and there with defending towns from desperadoes and that kind of thing. This job with the Company was supposed to be his last step into the big leagues of mercenary work.

Name: The Prodigy
Age: 10
Background: He's the son of the CEO of a bionics company. When he was very young, he wandered out into the street an got hit by a car. His parents gave him the best care, and of course, the best bionics. When he grew up a little more, he showed an interest in the bionics that had saved his life. He taught himself how bionics worked and even learned enough surgery to install them himself. He has a lot of passive bionics to replace the functions he lost in the accident.

The background will probably need to be edited to fit the fact that it's been more than 40 years since the collapse of society in general.

Everything looks great so far with characters, (and with Flame's edit, its even better) so I'll wait for our Starbucks hipster to finish his sheet and the grand Insurance Fraud quest will begin.

DISCLAMER: The RP may or may not be as quirky as the title suggests.
