Sample Characters


These 14 Sample Characters offer a decent variety of options. To download them, just click the icon next to their name. They are accompanied with a brief explanation on what they are all about.   These characters were made with Herolab Online, a commercial character creation tool that includes default dicepools. This makes it easier for someone to check how much they roll, as they don't have to look up the attribute rating and add that to the skill rating themselves.


There are 3 main categories. Street Samurai are individuals that depend on implants to be more competent in combat, well-suited for newbies.   Magic characters includes those that primarily cast spells or summon spirits, but also adepts that use innate magic to buff themselves.   Then there's the gather-bin of advanced miscellaneous characters, namely the hacking Decker and Technomancer, the drone-controlling Rigger, and the smooth-talking Face.
