PERSONALITY

Personality Description
Adam is a casual, fun loving, speed freak. He can go with the flow, adjusting to enjoy the company around him in most cases. He has a very lighthearted outlook, joking and being otherwise sarcastic. On the other hand he is a very serious individual, committed to his work and his word. XIII is a very serious contrast to Adam's normal personality, adopting a very hard line "matter of facts" tone.

Quirks
Adam takes the stairs. For some reason he has always gravitated toward stairs over elevators. He also has a love of "old tech" as far as both mode of transportation and method of defense go. His computer network is by far the most advanced thing he owns, everything else is nearly "antique".

Fears
Losing those he counts as friends, being alone.

Goal
The underlying goal of Adams life is Freedom.

Likes
Art
Music
Most sports and activities involving speed

Dislikes
The system when it over steps its bounds

Strengths
Adams biggest strength is his personality, coupled with his habit of keeping an eye and ear on what’s around him. He is a socialite, and uses what is at times a “spot light” persona to cover up and hide under the radar. He isn’t bound to any form of schedule, which makes him hard to pin down, but usually knows what’s going on.

Weaknesses
His penchant for speed tends to put him in situations that bring him to the notice of authority figures, usually the standard old NYPD. For obvious reasons this isn’t a good thing when one is living outside of the system.

He also has a “hero” syndrome, often attempting to help or save his friends at his own risk.



Abilities & Skill & Combat Rating

[perfect] - [excellent] - [good] - [above average] - [average] - [below average] - [poor] - [very poor]

Clothing/Armor
Adam wears t-shirts, plaid shirts and slim fitting (but not tight) jeans. He some times wears a grey suit vest and newsboy style cap or a black leather jacket and green wool beanie cap. Other clothing includes black riding gear with Kevlar armoring.

Combat Prowess

Close Combat Average When it comes to throwing fists Adam is a run of the mill guy, nothing special. He is fairly tough skinned and can take a decent hit, but it’s far from his specialty. He can swing a club about as well as the next guy, though something requiring more finesse is best left to those who are trained.

Armed Combat - Firearms Good to Exellent A lot of training and preparing for the worst has given Adam an edge in a fire fight. A calm manner brought about by hundreds upon thousands of drills and muscle memory allows him to get done what needs doing and get out of the situation quickly.

Abilities


Skills

Networking Perfect - As an artist Adam has created quite the network of associates, contacts, and friends. These range from other “outsiders” of the system all the way up to some notable members of society. Luckily the art circuit hasn’t come under scrutiny from the government, as rich folks like art, and the government likes rich folks. The relationship has allowed “the Underground” to carve out a nice niche for itself, one that Adam has learned to play very well.

Hack Excellent to Perfect - Adam’s ability with a computer has granted him a free life in an otherwise tied down and tethered world. He employs wireless hacking via a GLOVE. Employing a mix of “speed” hacking and “covert” he has built up such a secondary persona that even if he was caught it would be extremely hard to back track any records to his physical self.

Up close gun slinger Excellent -Adam carries his weapons for self defense, as such he has been trained to use them where the majority of defensive engagements occur, close range. He trained heavily on making the most out of situations where decisions must be made in less than seconds and distances were more associated with a knife fight than a gun fight.

Marksman Above Average - While a majority of his training focused on situations where an attacker was near by, Adam didn’t forget about situations that might arise at a distance.

Equipment

the GLOVE an integrated computer operating platform, the future of computing technology. Integrating with the human neural system via NTI creates a display system that is unique to the user and allows for “virtual work flow”. Literally windows suspend themselves in the space in front of the user,
allowing complete interaction. A black market device, none traceable.

Custom Mold Active Hearing Protection Adam likes his hearing, and so he purchased a set of AHP ear buds for use with fire arms training, these resemble a hearing aid that fits completely inside the ear perfectly and are designed to shut down in the event of a harmfully loud noise, particularly a gunshot.


Memorabilia
While Adam has quite a bit of memorabilia at his pent house, none of it jumps out as impressively significant.
