Charisma: +2; Pace: 5 (Pace 30, Climb 2); Parry: 6; Strain: 5 of 12 remaining
Toughness (outside of armor): 13(5); Toughness (inside of armor): 22(12 MDC)

Skills
  • Fighting (Agi): d8+2
  • Intimidation (Spi): d4
  • Investigation (Sma): d6
  • Knowledge - Arcana (Sma): d4
  • Knowledge - Computers (Sma): d6
  • Knowledge - Cybernetics (Sma): d4
  • Knowledge - Electronics (Sma): d4
  • Knowledge - Philosophy (Sma): d8 (d8 free)
  • Language - American (Sma): d8 (d6 free)

  • Stealth (Agi): d6
  • Streetwise (Sma): d6+2 (d6 free)
  • Survival (Sma): d6 (d6 free)
  • Throwing (Agi): d4

Hindrances
  • Ailin' (Minor):
    • He always subtracts 1 from Fatigue rolls made to resist physical exertion (but not Agility rolls to avoid suffering bumps and bruises). He’s in the earliest stages of the disease and may not be diagnosed yet.
    • At the end of every game session he must make a Vigor roll. On a failure, the disease gets worse. The Minor version of this Hindrance becomes the Major version. If the hero already has the Major Hindrance, he dies at the end of the next session in which he fails a Fatigue check (or at an appropriate time chosen by the Marshal).
    • Not subject to Nano-Repair System or Internal Life Support cybernetics.
  • Death Wish(Minor):
    • Having a death wish doesn’t mean your adventurer is suicidal - but he does want to die after completing some important goal. Maybe he wants revenge for the murder of his family, or maybe he’s dying from disease and wants to go out in a blaze of glory. He won’t throw his life away for no reason, but when there’s a chance to complete his goal, he’ll do anything - and take any risk - to achieve it.
  • Elderly (Major):
    • Your adventurer is getting on in years, but he’s not quite ready for the nursing home. His Pace is reduced by 1, and his Strength and Vigor drop a die type to a minimum of d4, and cannot be raised thereafter.
    • On the plus side, the wisdom of his years grants the hero 5 extra skill points that may be used for any skills linked to Smarts.

Edges
  • Charismatic: This adds +2 to his Charisma.
  • Connections: (Fortune & Glory) Black Market.
  • Connections: (Fortune & Glory) The Republic of Japan Military.
  • Elan: When you spend a Benny on a Trait roll (including Soak rolls), add +2 to the final total.
  • Luck: (Hero's Journey) +1 Benny per session.
  • Power Armor Jock: (Iconic Framework) Pilot Power Armor without -2 penalty.
  • Quick: (Fortune & Glory) Discard initiative draws of 5 or less for new card.
  • Rich: (Fortune & Glory) 2 rolls on Hero's Journey (or vehicle) and 5,000 credits.
  • Filthy Rich: (Racial) 3 more roll on Hero's Journey and 20,000 credits.
  • Rock and Roll!: Ignore the recoil penalty for firing a weapon on full automatic.
  • Upgrade: (Hindrances) Gain a new piece of cyberware.
  • Upgradeable: Increase Maximum Strain by +6.

Cybernetics
  • Core Electronics Package: (1) - (Strain 1; 22,000 credits)
    • This set of electronic and data systems grants the following—a mini-computer; a computer interface jack for direct linking to other systems, which grants a +4 to appropriate Repair checks and Common Knowledge rolls; a radio with a 20-mile range. (Strain 1; 22,000 credits).
  • Cyber-Wired Reflexes: (1) - (Strain 1; 12,000 credits)
    • The cyborg’s Agility is increased one step for each application of these artificial nervous system enhancements and hard-wired celerity systems. Each step past d12 adds a +1. This particular enhancement is a requirement for many other upgrades.
  • Hand-to-Hand Reaction Wiring: (1) - (Strain 1; 30,000 credits)
    • Requiring at least one level of Cyber-Wired Reflexes, this upgrade grants a +2 to all Fighting checks.
  • Nano-Repair System: (1) - (Strain 2; 250,000 credits)
    • This system for releasing nanobots can heal biological damage and repair synthetic systems as well. One wound is healed per day, and the cyborg gains a +4 to resist Bleeding Out. They also grant a 50% chance to reject any poison or disease in the system (though Internal Life Support negates the need for this).
  • Reinforced Frame: (1) - (Strain 1; 150,000 credits)
    • Metals, ceramics, and other tough substances cover the cyborg head-to-toe and are laced through his skeleton and musculature. Each application is +2 Toughness.
  • Wired Skill Port: (1) - (Strain 1, 5,000 credits for port)
    • If a character has Cyber-Wired Reflexes, he can get a port which accepts a single chip granting or improving an Agility-linked skill. It’s a free action to change a chip in a port but requires a full round before the new information is available. A chip adds or increases one specific Agility-linked skill up to four die types. The Strain refers to the embedded port itself, chips cause no Strain on their own.

Background
  • Tadashi Nakamura was born in the Republic of Japan, before the Great Cataclysm. His family had a long tradition of serving in various branches of the military, several even volunteering to become cyborgs after injuries or before death could claim them of old age so they could continue to serve the country they loved - heck, his grandfather was still walking around as a cyborg! Tadashi was taught from a young age duty and honor, the Code of Bushido (or at least a version of it) along with Shintoism.
  • He joined the military once he was of age and out of school. His aptitude tests and proclivities lead to him being trained as a pilot. His father and grandfather were proud of him when he graduated, but even more so the day he became one of the elite pilots assigned to fly a SAMAS. He was married for many years, but his wife Akiko died during the transition to the pocket dimension when the Great Cataclysm happened, accidentally killed by a vehicle that went out of control. He didn't have much time to mourn her, at first, since just a few 'days' after they rifted in to a weird limbo they were back on earth but everything had changed.
  • Attacks and raids by demons, monsters and even humans were commonplace and at a frenetic pace during the first couple of months after the return to Rifts Earth. Tadashi got little downtime or even sleep, the entire "country" being on high alert and the SAMAS pilots being one of the good defenses and early warnings for things coming. Tadashi was bone-tired and grief-stricken when he was finally rotated out for bereavement leave. They'd already had a funeral previously, but he needed time to process and work through things.
  • It has been almost two decades since then. Tadashi has been a life-long soldier, but has started to get older. Unlike his grandfather, but like his father, he didn't want to become a cyborg - that would mean he would potentially never get to see his wife again, would not become an ancestor spirit for his family. Even though he and his wife had no children, he had nephews, nieces, cousins and more still coming.
  • He began to grow tired of life, of the daily routine. Things had been mostly peaceful and the defenses of the Republic were good. He was also getting old - worse than that, though, for his military career he was diagnosed with a rare and incurable disease which meant a long, slow, painful wasting death. He was forced in to taking retirement, publicly on the grounds of old age. However, that long decay, especially losing his mobility and faculties later on, sounded horrific to Tadashi.
  • As the day of his retirement grew closer, a rift opened not too far away and was being studied. It was also being guarded against incursions. He decided to act. On the day of his retirement, once it was official but before the ceremony, he stole his SAMAS and flew in to the rift, desiring to have one last great adventure before he was killed by the incurable disease that was slowly overtaking his body. He got a bit more than he bargained for, however. He flew out in to the middle of a Coalition group studied the rift on their side (and possibly secretly in communication with the Republic of Japan). They opened fire on him when he didn't respond (he was very badly disoriented from traveling through the rift) and accidentally clipped one of their SAMAS causing it to crash.
  • The Tomorrow Legion had a reconnaissance team in the area checking on what the Coalition was up to. When Tadashi regained his senses, he opened up communications across all bands, claiming that the collision was an accident and he wasn't a hostile. The Coalition at that point had noticed that he was flying what they assumed was a stolen and modified SAMAS, so they didn't listen to him. The Tomorrow Legion stepped in and helped Tadashi escape. On the long journey to Castle Refuge, he found out more about them and their mission. He decided to join up. One last great adventure.
