Prime Runners: Calvin and Hobbes

Posted: October 21, 2010 in Shadowrun, Table Top Gaming

Every Shadowrun game needs a few Prime Runners as opposition or allies for the player characters. Prime Runners should have a bit of a  history some flaws and some goals and things they value, not just fodder for the PCs

Today’s Prime Runners are Calvin and Hobbes, a wired up sub-machine-gun  expert and an up close and personal tiger shape-shifter physical adept.  Both Characters are around 500 points give or take a few build wise.

CALVIN

Race: Human

Appearance: Mid twenties, Caucasian blond hair unkempt hair clothes etc. He sports a slightly punk look slightly punk look.

Calvin is a bit lacking in humanity and social skills.  He rides the edge and has a tendency to go for overkill in a fight, why settle for 1 bullet when you can throw a full clip at something.  The main thing keeping Calvin in check is Hobbes, the only person or thing that Calvin really cares about, and is very much devoted to the Shape-shifter Hobbes. Calvin met Hobbes on a run a few years back and they had an odd, and unexplainable affinity for eachother, they have been a team ever since.

Race: Tiger Shape-shifter (see Runners Companion p 86 for powers and weaknesses)

Appearance: Mid 30s, South Asian features, cat like eyes(slit pupils green iris) , tiger stripe tattoos  along arms and legs orange and black streaked hair. Tiger stripe accents on clothes.  Prefers clothing that is easily removed so he can shift into his Tiger form. Fastidiously clean. On the Astral plane Hobbes always looks like a very large angry Tiger easily visible, and not soon forgotten.

Hobbes is much older than he appears, he was found one morning in the Tiger Habitat along with his mate Parsin in the London Zoo in 2032.  They were immediately taken away for study Hobbes was able to escape his cage and has acclimated to life in the shadows, as he continues to search for Parsin, following leads where ever they take him.
