Wildcards Roben "Ro" Janos
« on: December 14, 2011, 01:44:29 AM »


PLaceholder;



Roben "Ro" Janos

Registered as 39 year old Roben Janos; only daughter(natural birth) of Nedd Janos and Pika (Meltrandi) from Earth, raised aboard a Macross Emigration fleet for 2 years before settled in sector 4 on a colony planet of S-4 C-53 (private sponsorship.

Roben was accepted into the NUNS in the Intel department through a challenge to see if she could stand par without having to return to Basic.  She was accepted on the bases that her experience as a private investigator and private mecha pilot would suffice with only a few months of refresher, updating and indoctrination into the Military System of Command.


Roben has a record of having spent some time on the Macross Galaxy fleet before it disappeared, very early on in the fleet departure. She received there a Direct Neural Interface on subsidy (of which she still owes approximately 160000, on record anyway).  This advanced cybernetic suite made it is easy for her to receive a full body skin replacement of high quality with full tactile senses.  She has registered 3 devices recently implanted through private clinics.  An advanced processor, and internal storage,  audio/video recording,  physical enhancement (dexterity increase), sub-dermal interface (left arm, "keys" appear through light just below the skin.), cable jack, advanced communications router, advanced power-cell (left calf), computer suite OS, cyberspace front-end, back-end, security software, low light and bright light visual modification,  combat connection(works with equipped VFs)


Roben "Ro" Janos also suffers from massive amnesia, does not know her true origins, name, history, marital status. She has halting memories of being in the recovery clinic when she first came out of coma and all events from that point.  She does not suffer from skills memory, though many are lost to her until she attempts to use them, and the skill returns with the memory of action.

She is frustrated at having no past, but fate shone on her kindly, providing her with escape and a ship shortly after her kidnapping off of LV-426.  She has spent the last 2 years in Sector 45, travelling from colony to colony constructing her personage to suit her needs at the time finally arriving on Caesar looking to start a new life and a new history, inexplicably drawn to the NUNS Spacy.

Looks good.

I think we can work on attributes.  As she's basically had large parts of her body replaced with machines, I think the best way to do the stats is:
1)  create (or convert) her attributes as a normal human
2) THEN work out how the mechanical replacements have changed those normal human attributes.

Roben Janos  callsign “Ro”

Former Intelligence agent of the UNMC

 *Declared KIA/MIA due to injuries received in the line of duty. Her body was recovered, comatose, and placed into suspension. A variety of work was done to her to restore her body and help ease her back to consciousness. The value of the information in her head would far exceed the cost of expensive surgury and eventually cybernetics. it would be ten years before she finally wakes up, in the hands of the very people who her INTEL would put on the receiving end of a UNMC cannon. Her extended comatose state a plot by the axis of evil, her “escape” at their hands a ploy to use her against the UN and other major powers.  However, the extensive damage physically and psychologically has left the one previously known as Leiagh Klein Moss, mentally crippled, her memories have been stripped, mind scarred and body alien to herself. Having time travelled 10 years into the future, the mental breakdown is complete when she finds herself in the hands of the very people she fought to be free of. Nearly 6 months of captivity go by with her at the vicious hands of agents of the one known as the purple bubble, or space pirates, and a sinister elite business cartel. A twist of fate and hard luck sets “leiagh” free, with a ship, two dead criminals and no idea where or who she is.

Character Age: 27
Gender: Female
Birthplace: NewMacross City, Earth
Religion: None (Zen)
Hair Color: Brown with natural reddish hints
Eye Color: Off blue/green
Height: 172 cm
Weight: 62 kg
Handedness: right
 
Distinguishing Features: Leiagh has unusually dark eyes. Although blue/green, in low light they can appear almost black, Leiagh has dense furrows in her forehead when she frowns and deep dimples. Otherwise Leiagh is well proportioned physically, being midset though a little heavy for her height, she is fit and healthy looking.

Family:
Gloria Klein Moss (Mother)
Nathan Moss (Step Father)
Martin Haspeth (Genetic Father)
Brenda `Brezzie` Frost (1/2 Sister Deceased)
Eddy Moss (younger half-brother)

Occupation: Marine
Affiliation: UN Spacy
Rank: Captain.

Hobbies: Yoga. Kickboxing. Heavy drinking.

Best Friend: None, period. Ro distances herself privately from everyone, fearing her imperfect mind and artificial body will be exposed. The recent change in her attempts to re-connect with her past have connected her with a private eye named 'Mak', they are about as close to "friends" as Ro thinks herself possible.

Worst Enemy: Currently the shadowy presence of the peple who “kidnapped” her, though she really has no idea who either of them were. their dead bodies floating away in space still haunt her dreams.

Turn Ons:  Despite her memory failiure Ro never really got over the love for glitz and continues to be attracted to overly bright clothing and jewelry .

Turn Offs: deep space, cold, backwater male attentions,

Worst Secret:her heavy memory loss and cybernetic modifications

Character Goals:
**Two Year Goal - find her true identity, without tipping anybody off to the fact that she is still alive.


Character Background:
Birth: Born in NewMacross City in 2023 to Gloria `Glanda` Klein and Martin Haspeth,  (both sisters still alive with assorted cousins etc)

stepfather Nathan Moss was stuntman, and stunt director who also taught stunt work when not working as one.

Childhood,
older half-sister Brezzie (deceased at age 12)
younger half-brother Eddy (alive, 9 years younger)

Youth,
unknown

University/College
N/A

Religion

  “Leiagh’s” Zen leanings have been a core of strength of her through many trying times and the echo of it still remains despite little memory of having practiced it.  She practices yoga now, but has had to relearn it.

Love : None, avoided like the plague

Looks good.

I think we can work on attributes.  As she's basically had large parts of her body replaced with machines, I think the best way to do the stats is:
1)  create (or convert) her attributes as a normal human
2) THEN work out how the mechanical replacements have changed those normal human attributes.

step 1: conversion:

Player's Name:
E-mail:
Character's Name:

Attributes:
INT: 5
COOL: 5
EMP: 6
BOD: 8
REF: 7
ATT: 6
MA: 10
TECH: 5


Step 2:
Macross has presented 3 types of artificial replacements:
1) Zentraadi bio-implants (which was further refined in the Black Wraiths from bio-mechanical looking to normal looking (except for some scaring on the skin where the replacement limb starts).  Abilities are effectively the same as normal limbs.
2) mechanical "heavy" replacements (Macross the Ride's 0scar Burauhitsch.) The replacement is heavy duty, more powerful (up to the limits of the remaining physical body it's attached to) and obviously artificial.
3) cyber-grunts (Macross Frontier's Brera Sterne).  Externally human looking, but essentially a machine with plastic skin that mimics normal skin (kinda hard to describe.  In short: they don't bleed when cut, nor do they self heal).


The description of your character implies that she is a cyber-grunt.  But it'll require some tweaking to the mechanics (both senses) to better match the cyber-grunt technology that's been shown in Macross.  (I.e.: does she unknowingly have a slave circuit implant).

Indicate in a reply which option you're OK with (1, 2 or 3), and we'll go from there (work beckons now)

I think that a combination of 2/3 would be okay.  By the description she is the third type described, but she is self conscious of some obvious body modification that are visible. The Slave Circuit implant is a great GM device :D

Alright... this is where we arrive at some conflicts in the PC.

First up:
Quote
Roben has a record of having spent some time on the Macross Galaxy fleet before it disappeared, very early on in the fleet departure.

This implies that she's fully a "Type 3" cyber-grunt.  Thereby precluding anything external that indicates that she's a cyborg.

Also, as the Macross Galaxy Fleet is indicated as having left Eden in 2031, that'd make her no longer compatible with the Black Wraiths back story.  Even if the liner note launch date of the MGF is a typo, and it was only 10 months (not years) earlier than the Macross Frontier Fleet, that'd mean she was on the fleet in 2041.  Again, incompatible with the BW back story.

Now, ways around that:
1) Macross Galaxy is a galaxy spanning company.  There's bound to be other emigrant fleets created by them or other fixed star-systems controlled by them.  Janos could be from one of them.
2) Janos is not a product of Macross Galaxy (company), but is a cyber-grunt made by one of the colonies in the sector.  They create sub-par cyber-grunts (combination of types 2 and 3), as they don't have the full range of Macross Galaxy's technology.


Second:

Worst Secret:her heavy memory loss and cybernetic modifications

This works if she's a type 3 cyber-grunt (nothing external is visible).  However, it conflicts if some aspects are externally visible.

Her pasty white skin, bulky joints and nerve grafted muscles give her body a very artificial look under close inspection (which never happens!!)

Aside from the externally visible or not thing, I was thinking about how these things would happen in Macross: as humans have access to Zentraadi micronization technology, they don't have to go to the trouble of ripping apart and rebuilding bodies.  All they have to do is create the robotic parts, clone the living tissue around it, and transfer the consciousness of the person into the body.  There's also the possibility of reverting the process by cloning a new body.

Nevertheless, the trade off of using that technology is that the consciousness transfer process isn't perfect.  Memory, especially for those with great intellect (E.g. Exedoru) is sometimes lost in the transfer.

This would be a great explanation for why Janos has lost her memory or isn't able to remember it easily (a botched transfer that either lost or scrambled her memories).  I can't remember if she had brain damage, but if so, that's another factor.  But in this case, the memories are most likely permanently lost (this is more an RPing question: struggling with lost memories, or struggling with "Borne Identity" style flashbacks and eventual total recall).

I don't have anything against the non-human look, other than the conflicts with the rest of the PC sheet ;)

Given the technologies involved, I think her organs and brain have the capability to endure further damage is not applicable.  Of course, given her lost memory, any further brain trauma may very well be irrecoverable.  But that's not due to any cumulative weaknesses in the physical structure itself. 


I was going to tackle the implants themselves with this post, but as there's so much to chew on already, we'll save that for after clarifying some of the above in the PC sheet.

   You know her real history and the events that shaped her life.   This part of her past is manufactured,  Roben used some her funds and connections gained within the sector to create this so she could join spacy.   Nedd Janos and his Wife exist, on the Macross Galaxy fleet; both completely unaware that they now are registered with a daughter.  Roben has never been to the Macross galaxy fleet, nor had Leiagh Klein Moss ever been there, like you say there are gaps in time and space that would have prevented that.

    I never assumed that work had been done professionally and imagined that reinforcement of the joints; and placement of organs would have left some of the internal modifications still visible on the outside. if this seems unreasonable I can change it. your call.

I assumed that her body had been modified directly; the information in her head being too valuable to risk a transfer.  I dont think that she had brain damage physically per say (though it is likely in that 90% of her body was 3rd degree burnt), but there has been psychological damage there ever since her capture by the pirates, furthered by interrogation by the purple bubble, and further by her actions has a double(triple!?) agent. 

Since her "escape" she has gone through several personas to stay alive and suit her needs, without her core personality of Leiagh to keep her stable, her training may be "over writing" her real memories.  maybe?!?

personally I think that a Borne like flashbacks scenario is best; but I really dont think that she will ever attain full 'recall', even if she manages to dig up her old personal files, learn her history yes, remember being there for the whole, no.

   Ok, it has been years (10 in a coma, and (2?) since then for her body to physically rebuild itself.  too many demerits, I was she trying to keep her delicacy in the face of her new found strength.  You know like an Achilles heel, or kryptonite, everyone gotta have their weak spot.  A good reason for her to shy away from physicality, despite her capability at it.


I'll play follow the leader with the body mods, like you say its a lot to tackle, there's' probably a way to simplify it.

See PM.

Some random notes (for self and you):

skills:
Due to head trauma, two sets are the way I'm going to go:
Post-trauma: these are the skills that she knows she knows, and uses daily.  Create using the standard creation rules.
Pre-trauma: these are skills that she's not usually aware that she knows.  They come back in emergencies (like the Bourne Identity scene were the Swiss police taps him with a billy club and in a few seconds he's knocked both out cold and taken one of their guns.  In disgust, he drops the gun - after removing the bullets and disassembling it.)  Something like that.  I think we can just copy/paste the existing skills list from the old character sheet and leave it like that until they come up in gameplay.


cybernetics:

Who do you value most:
What do you value most:
Basic Personality:
World view:
Current outlook:
Belief System: None (Zen).  “Leiagh’s” Zen leanings have been a core of strength of her through many trying times and the echo of it still remains despite little memory of having practised it.   She practises yoga now, but has had to relearn it.

Likes: despite her memory failure, Ro never really got over the love for glitz and continues to be attracted to overly bright clothing and jewelry.
Dislikes: deep space, cold, backwater male attentions.

Closest Ally or Friend: none.  Ro distances herself privately from everyone, fearing her imperfect mind and artificial body will be exposed.  The recent change in her attempts to re-connect with her past have connected her with a private eye named 'Mak', they are about as close to "friends" as Ro thinks herself possible.
Worst Enemy or Rival: currently the shadowy presence of the people who “kidnapped” her, though she really has no idea who either of them were.  Their dead bodies floating away in space still haunt her dreams.

Biggest Secret: her heavy memory loss and cybernetic modifications.

Short Term Goal: find her true identity, without tipping anybody off to the fact that she is still alive.
Long Term Goal:
Reason For Joining:

Hobbies: Yoga.  Kick-boxing.  Heavy drinking.

Childhood: unknown
Life Events:
University/College: N/A
Love : None, avoided like the plague

Background:
Former Intelligence agent of the UNMC who was declared KIA due to injuries received in the line of duty.  Her body was recovered, comatose, and placed into suspended animation.  A variety of work was done to her to restore her body and help ease her back to consciousness.  The value of the information in her head would far exceed the cost of expensive surgery and eventually cybernetics.
It would be ten years before she finally wakes up, in the hands of the very people who her INTEL would put on the receiving end of a UNMC cannon.  Her extended comatose state a plot by the axis of evil, her “escape” at their hands a ploy to use her against the UN and other major powers.
However, the extensive damage physically and psychologically has left the one previously known as Leiagh Klein Moss, mentally crippled, her memories have been stripped, mind scarred and body alien to herself.  Having time travelled 10 years into the future, the mental breakdown is complete when she finds herself in the hands of the very people she fought to be free of.
Nearly 6 months of captivity go by with her at the vicious hands of agents of the one known as the purple bubble, or space pirates, and a sinister elite business cartel.  A twist of fate and hard luck sets “Leiagh” free, with a ship, two dead criminals and no idea where or who she is.

UN Spacy ; Roben "Ro" Janos

Registered as 39 year old Roben Janos; only daughter(natural birth) of Nedd Janos and Pika (Zentraadi) from Earth, raised aboard a Macross Emigration fleet for 2 years before settled in sector 4 on an emigrant planet of S-4 C-53 (privately sponsored).
Roben was accepted into the NUNS in the Intel department through a challenge to see if she could stand par without having to return to Basic.  She was accepted on the basis that her experience as a private investigator and private mecha pilot would suffice with only a few months of refresher, updating and indoctrination into the Military System of Command.
Roben has a record of having spent some time on the Macross Galaxy fleet before it disappeared, very early on in the fleet departure.  She received a Direct Neural Interface there on subsidy (of which she still owes approximately ?160,000, on record anyway).
This advanced cybernetic suite made it is easy for her to receive a full body skin replacement of high quality with full tactile senses.  She has registered 3 devices recently implanted through private clinics.  An advanced processor, and internal storage,  audio/video recording,  physical enhancement (dexterity increase), sub-dermal interface (left arm, "keys" appear through light just below the skin.), cable jack, advanced communications router, advanced power-cell (left calf), computer suite OS, cyberspace front-end, back-end, security software, low light and bright light visual modification,  combat connection(works with equipped VFs).
Roben "Ro" Janos also suffers from massive amnesia, does not know her true origins, name, history, marital status.  She has halting memories of being in the recovery clinic when she first came out of coma and all events from that point.  She does not suffer from skills memory, though many are lost to her until she attempts to use them, and the skill returns with the memory of action.
She is frustrated at having no past, but fate shone on her kindly, providing her with escape and a ship shortly after her kidnapping off of LV-426.  She has spent the last 2 years in Sector 45, travelling from colony to colony constructing her personage to suit her needs at the time finally arriving on Caesar looking to start a new life and a new history, inexplicably drawn to the New Unified Space Forces.
