Shadowrun - Storm City
Hair: Blonde (currently blue)
Tegan “Hot Take” Kaminski used her golden voice and silver tongue to make a modest fortune early in life, both as a musician in the underground club circuit and in the shadows.
Working up to the big time from the streets is never easy or free, however; a shady but mutually beneficial partnership with her manager saw her trading stolen corporate secrets for recording deals and a shot at stardom.
When a simple data retrieval run against a rival label turned up a repository of seemingly unprotected files, Hot Take saw her chance. Never above screwing over the competition, she deleted hundreds of thousands of nuyen worth of master recordings. Unfortunately, this ended up alerting security to her actions – resulting in the failure of the run and the death or capture of the rest of her crew. Hot Take, working remotely, was able to escape with her hoop intact but her rep in the gutter.
Her reliability in question, Hot Take has found offers of paying work hard to come by. With the bills piling up, her deadbeat sister Megan to support, and a novacoke habit to feed, she’s going to have a tough time getting her career back on track, both onstage and in the shadows.
