Okay, so another request: the Tech-Wiz. The original was a dwarf, but I decided to make this guy a troll for fun. He’s more of a ‘couch potato’ type of troll, but with Skills A he has a pretty large amount of variety. The bit below average Charisma I think fits a more ‘likes computers more than the outdoors’ type. His cyberdeck is flimsy-it’s only the second one on the list-but I see him using it more for stuff like media piracy or some basic overwatch than I do true decking(for now, he can always get a better one, and his skills in decking aren’t that bad.) His deal is essentially building and repairing about everything, with a big pickup to keep shops and stuff in. (I see his Low Lifestyle actually being a big warehouse or something.)

Description: The Tech-Wiz does a little decking on the side(not much though, he more uses it for things like trid piracy or overwatch, though he does keep a nice handful of programs on hand), but his main forte is building and repairing a huge variety of things. Be it cars, trucks, bikes, planes, electronics, or even weapons and armor with some locks on the side, the Tech-Wiz can utilize a wide variety of tools and tricks to get the job done, sometimes even throwing stuff together seemingly out of nothing; he’ll sometimes lose track of time as he works on things, staying up all night. He seems to like his equipment and fixing things more than hanging out with people-he’s not mean or antisocial but he tends to spend more time in the land of electronics and the matrix than he does getting things like sunlight or ‘fresh’ air.
