2075: Stormy Waters
Purple Nocturna Gillette with few words and a dry humor.
Deanna “Foxglove” Marlin
Age 41 Sex Female Height 180cm Build Athletic
Description Foxglove tends to stand out. First of all, she’s tall, putting her head above a lot of the others in a crowd. Second, where most Nocturna’s skin/fur is either black or blue, hers is purple…very purple. And third and probably most eye-catching (particularly in the dark) is the glowing pink hair. She’s the kind of ‘Runner that kills things; none of this “sneaking around” drek. Which, admittedly, can be a bit of a problem at times, but a good hood, long coat, and decent makeup can hide it well enough for skulking about in the back alleys.
Fox’ also isn’t really much to mince words. In fact, she prefers action over talking, most of the time, so when she does speak it’s either out of necessity or because she’s feeling witty. Though, her idea of “wit” and “humor” is about as dry as bones left to the desert heat, and her equally-dry delivery and resting bitch face tend to have most people wondering whether or not she’s actually joking.
While her usual demeanor might put most people off, and her tendency not to speak about her jobs hasn’t gotten her much street cred, the one good thing that can be said about her is that she sticks to the job. Unless otherwise instructed or unless Mr. Johnson decides to hose the team, Foxglove will always carry out the job to the best of her ability. Being rather tight-lipped about it also has advantages for those with jobs of a sensitive nature that are best kept quiet.

Basic Backstory: Foxglove
Takeda, Yuri was born in 2035, a Nocturna born to a perfectly Human family and one of the first Nocturna to arise in Japan. Because of this, both family and physicians believed her afflicted and so took steps to “cure” her. In doing so, the professionals managed to get rid of the usual fur that comes with the Nocturna genes, but soon realized that (because they couldn’t get rid of the black skin or elven features) she was actually a newly discovered genetic divergence from the Elf Metahumans.
Because of the intense prejudice against Metahumans during that time, Yuri was shuffled off to a foster family on a separate island. Growing up, her tutors were horribly abusive, and life on the rest of the island wasn’t much better. However, Yuri had always had something of a stubborn streak, and so determined to get as much out of her schooling as she could in hopes of some day getting off of that horrid rock.
Her wishes were granted at the age of 14 when a AAA corporation took notice of her determination and unusually high agility. Cross Applied Technologies got into contact with Yuri and gave her a way out of the slums. It didn’t take much thinking for the elf to take them up on it.
The corp put her through high school and college, and her single-minded drive to improve herself to the highest extent got her into CAT Co.’s Seraphim, her cyber enhancements, and martial training.
Yuri rose quickly in the ranks of the Seraphim, taking her job seriously and reveling in it. All was going well until CAT Co. got dissolved, and the elf’s stubbornness and loyalty to the people that saved her from “equal-but-separate” hell kept her from following some of the other Seraphs and wageslaves to the new company that cannibalized CAT Co. The corp didn’t take kindly to this, and set to hunting down anyone that rejected their “invitation.”
So Yuri spent a while on the run, avoiding the corporation that was after her and others like her. It was around this time that Hallie’s Comet passed a second time, and her mutations got even more strange. Her black skin turned purple and her hair foxglove pink, as well as other oddities. The latter of which she didn’t discover until she was in bed with a lover, and found that her new fangs injected digitalis toxins straight into the blood stream.
From Corp Goon to Shadowrunner:
Yuri was on the run again, and by this time what little resources she’d had stowed away were drying up. Not to mention there was no network of people to call upon for help. And so, like anyone with marketable skills looking for a job in the seedier parts of the alley, the elf fell into running the shadows. She became known as Foxglove, named so for her coloration and poisonous bite, and took up her new role as a Street Gillette with the same determination as she had when she was still with the Seraphim.
