Terrance Zizzyphus "ThunderBird627"
Technomancer from England
Terrance was raised in the life of the runners. His mum and dad were runners in Europe, and their parents were runner before them. His mother was a decker and taught him computer languages before he could even talk. His father was a mage who taught him to shoot a gun before he could walk. But Terrance didn’t quite see the world in the same way as his parents and many of their lessons weren’t even heard. For a long time his parents thought he was spaz, but loved him anyhow and tried their best. It was not until he was about eight did they realize that Terrance wasn’t a spaz, he was gifted in a way they could not imagine. It started with small things, a smartlink gun firing on its own, and the lights in the rig turning off and on. After Terrance’s father found no spirits causing the mayhem, his mother Jacked on to AR to see if there was a hack, and found the origin of the attack to be Terrance. His mother taught him as much as she could about the Matrix, though there were many things that she could not teach Terrance since she had no understanding of how Terrance did whatever it was the he did to Jack-on with no deck. On his first mission, ThunderBird627 finally had a place and a job. They hosed the run due to some Ice that dumped him and set off an alarm, and, while laying low to avoid the heatwave Terrance heard some of the other runners chatting, “That Drek’s only in the Biz, cuzza who ‘is rents are.” That settled it. The only way ThunderBird 627 was going to know for sure that he was fit for the life, was if he outran his parent’s shadows. To that end he buzzed to the UCAS. He built himself up a SIN, or three, made himself a few contacts mostly with a gaming chum of his that he has shacked up with (things seem to be lookin serious), and is now waiting for a fixer to match him up with some runners and a Mr. Johnson. Life is good.
