28 Heroines – #shimmer

If you want to stay safe, you have to keep moving. The megacorps will never stop looking for you once they’ve made you a target. #shimmer hasn’t slept in the same bed two nights in a row for half a year now. The initial job was simple enough; breach the fire walls and take everything she could find off a server in a shipping container buried in the desert. She’d actually had to go there in physical person, so remote and unconnected was the data repository. It turned out it was a deep archive containing all the illegal and immoral secrets of a dozen megacorps. #shimmer doesn’t know why they we’re all being kept together in such an unguarded off site location, but selling the data made her a fortune in credits.

28 Heroines

RPG character inspiration for each day in February. Heroines with personality, depth and a problem to resolve.

She spent them on getting a new suite of subtle subdermal cybernetics. She’d only just walked out of the hospital when the first attempt to kidnap her occured. Luckily she was able to escape in a passing ambulance but she hasn’t been able to go back for the follow up calibration appointments. Her old public profile was erased, leaving her with only her #handle. With the data no longer in her possession, she believes whoever is after her has made this personal. She’s been leaving them messages in the hope that they’ll be interested in talking.
