Description:
Nas is just under 2 metres tall, and weighs in just over 90 kilograms.  Like most elves, he is long limbed, but unlike most of his metatype he is very muscular due to the Muscle Replacement surgery and the Suprathyroid's effects on his hormones.  His handsome face, which shows some very faint scars of plastic surgery, is a little thin for his body type, and, while his ears do come to a point, it's not as obvious as normal for an elf, and he is often mistaken for a Human at first glance.  This annoys him to no end.  Another odd nature of Nas is that his fingers are almost abnormally long.

For casual wear, he prefers tight T-shirts and jeans with black synthleather engineer boots.

His “Business Outfit” is a black NASCAR-Rated Fireproof Racing Suit worn under an Synthleather Armoured Jacket in a H-D Bike Cop Cut, with his “Nails” Hardtak-Signature Combat Cycle Boots (Which look like black Ski Boots), and an Urban Warrior Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet with voice mask, independent air supply, Datajack connection, image display, and flare compensation.

Nas' hair is a a light, long Mohawk in pale blue, combed over to the left, slightly concealing a chrome datajack.
Usually went working on a Role Playing character, we start with, as my buddy Oota put it, "A Point of Light with Stats", then come up with personality and so forth.

Nas started in the other directly, a shell of a person, description with no substance from a Role Playing point of view.

So, this morning, I wrote out his character sheet. For those that know Shadowrun 4th Edition, this will make complete sense (He's a 400 BP, BTW!).

For those that don't, this sheet describes Nas' basic physical and mental abilities, as well as what skill he has in doing certain tasks, and given number form. Like those tests you used to have to do at Grade and High School to say "How good you are at this job" or "Which job is suited for you".

I've put a little blurb beside most of the stats and other items to describe what they are a little bit. For the rest, ask me, or use your imagination. That's what RPGing is about, imagination!

[Edit: Edited Nas' character sheet with info from the results of what his stats are at the end of the Epilog.]

[Edit Edit: Added a description of Nas for those that requested it.]

This is a character sheet, and, thus, part of the very reason the game exists! I even printed out the PDF Sheet from the Main Site to put him on. :D

Oi, great stories chummer. My favorites so far are Nas's stories, and he seems like a true omae, ya know? I'd love to see more about his new squeeze. Maybe you should get some pictures of your characters done? (or maybe you have, and I can't find them.)
