Inspector Tyger

Burning bright

Namir Tyger

Namir is a skilled and dedicated investigator. He often works with local law enforcement as a consulting officer, but usually choses and investigates cases on his own. Those who wish to hide their criminal deeds tremble with dread to hear that Inspector Tyger is on the case. From the depths of the sprawling slums to the skies of the corporate towers, he will find the truth, and reveal it to the world.   He has a cybernetic left eye that glows red when active, and a cybernetic right arm that he likes to use to dangle reluctant informants off of buildings.

Mental characteristics

Morality & Philosophy

Namir is a fundamentally moral man who knows he lives in an immoral world. He struggles daily not to slide too far into the grey abiguities that are nessessary to survive in the city. He feels that if he can uncover and reveal some truth every day, then he will be wining against the corruption surrounding him.

Personality Characteristics


Truth.  Exposing truth in all its brutal glory is what gets Namir Tyger up every day.  Unravelling the mystery, revealling the culprit, finding the lost, these are the things that inspire him.  Saving lives, or delivering justice are merely welcome side-effects of uncovering the truth.

Savvies & Ineptitudes

Inspector Tyger can suss out the pertinent details of any crime scene or situation with preternatural accuracy.   Conversley, he is oblivious to the sublties of personal relationships, and has unwittingly left countless bruised hearts in his wake.



Inspector Tyger speaks in an offputing maner meant to unsetle those he interviews.

Hobbies & Pets

Unravelling mysteries and solving crimes is his only hobby.
