Speaking of, Kyle Herring provided us with a quick biography about himself and his character!

Your name and personal biography: Kyle Herring a.k.a Vampyrik (game handle). Gamer since I could walk. Fairly new to Shadowrun (about 4 months total play time, mostly 5th). Current hobby is my EVE Online addiction

Your character's name and description/attitude/archetype/role/etc.? Malakai 5’7 Caucasian Elf, short blonde hair purposely made to look slightly disheveled. Generally a nice . guy, and cares more about making more contacts to further his network than nuyen (still wants to get paid though). Can be rather vicious if people he considers friends are in danger/hurt. Malakai is the face of the party, and prefers to talk his way out of things than fight.

Your character's backstory. Malakai entered the shadows as a way to make ends meet. His goal was to get the band he plays with making enough  nuyen to cover expenses so that they could work on music full-time, but that has not happened yet. Due to further issues, mainly faulty wiring at The Shack, most of their gear was ruined. He figured running the shadows would pay out a bit more than working the register at the Stuffer Shack, and might help to resupply some of the equipment that was lost. His band mates don’t know anything about his “side” activities, and he intends to leave them out of it.

Game Table Episode 2: Funk Fresh

It's hard to find someone who knows what she's doing and doesn't want to be found, at least in the sprawl of Seattle. This week, Kyle "Babysitter" Rogers meets up with three other Shadowrunners as they take on a job from the enigmatic troll "Jenkins" to track down a cybered-up missing operative who broke out of a Lone Star holding facility. Where's she hiding? And with no resources, what contacts might she have made to protect herself? And what's she running from in the first place?
