Ghost

Ghosts are highly trained military operatives with access to advanced cybernetic equipment. Ghosts are trained to be super soldiers, assassins or even effective corporate infiltrators. Many ghosts are well trained Cyberrunners with a distinct edge due to military grade cybertech interfaces.   Ghosts are feared everywhere and in all walks of life. Cyberrunners in particular fear the Ghosts as they are said to have the ability to mindwipe a Cyberrunner, turning them into a comatose sack of flesh. For this reason, Ghost are also referred to as Killers or Vipers. Whether this is true or not is debated. But the fear of getting wiped is many times enough to make Cyberrunners run for their lives when Ghosts are on the prowl.
