CP2020: Unfinished Business
Kimberly "Queen BladeGhost" DeCroix
Queen BladeGhost (born Kimberly DeCroix) is Frank “Freezerburn” DeCroix’s natural daughter… or possibly just some girl he picked up somewhere at a very young age for some reason, because she certainly doesn’t remember life without him. Frank was, as father’s go, pretty kriffin’ terrible. While he provided food and shelter for them through his Netrunning and information-brokering job, rarely was it high-quality, and rarely was it long-term. She’s lived in more places than she can easily remember, and the constant moving about led her to building up quite a tough shell about herself. As a young teen, she grew enamored with the MegaViolent yogangs, drawn in by their nihilist philosophy and willingness to fight anyone, anywhere, and prove themselves tougher than the world.
Somehow, she, her yo-gang or Frank’s online skulduggery attracted the attention of some strange cult. She has no idea who they are, why they’re after her, or what they want, but this cult has pulled out all the stops in their quest to grab and/or kill her. She knows nothing of them, other than the fact that they refer to themselves as “the Shoal”. She is also uncertain how far their influence spreads. Whether or not the other strange goings-on in recent days are related to this cult are, likewise, unknown.
She encountered two strange men in the back stairwell of the Night City flophouse, both of whom were inhumanly hideous. A fight broke out (at her instigation), and one of them ended up dying (and shortly thereafter dissolving), while the other grew wings and flew away, dropping a “Mist Cannon”. She was badly injured in the brawl (one of them shot lightning at her!), and found her father frozen to death in his chair in the apartment while a team of Edgerunners rummaged through his things.
Lacking any other options, she tagged along with this group, and now finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of strange events, conspiracies and ultraviolence.
