Bio:

Details coming soon!

Quick hits:

  • Grew up idolizing the old mounties (his nick is after an old movie character), but busted out of training for the modern, private, descendants.
  • Was good at computers, in a non-elite-hacker sort of way. Started his addiction to VR young.
  • Got recruited by a ruthless and (in the shadow community) infamous bounty hunter “Fisher”, to provide more computer capabilities. Preston received training as a bounty hunter and a modicum of pay for his help.
  • Fisher specialized in bringing in shadowrunners who had bounties on them, used a lot of scams to get close to his targets, and didn’t much care who got hurt in the process of bringing in his targets. Preston inherited this Bad Reputation.
  • Fisher ended up torn apart by hell-hounds (while Preston was not being useful). Preston salvaged Fisher’s cyber arm, and had it adjusted and installed. After recovering he finished bringing in that bounty but it wasn’t pretty.
  • He intended to carry on bounty hunting, but instead fell into a sequence of addictions, which he’s only recently mostly beaten, with the help of (name to be provided soon — his only close contact). He still consumes far too much soycaf, however.
