Shadowrun: Gabriele, Amazon Warrior

   For today, it’s an old player-character from Shadowrun: Gabriele, warrior-maiden of the “Secret Amazon Order”. Most of the other characters thought Gabriele was completely out of her mind, despite the fact that she’d managed to find a few others who shared her delusions. They were more or less right: belonging to a fan club that had managed to hang on for half a century, and (mostly thanks to BTL chips and drugs) had even managed to convince a few young women to accept the notion that the group dated back to ancient Greece was not an indicator of sanity. The fact that she was a bloodthirsty maniac, usually high on something, and ran around publicly proclaiming her acceptance of an old television show as a guide to life and serious history didn’t help either. On the other hand, she did make it until the end of the campaign – if only because she was only introduced a few sessions before then.
