Dyads - An odd idea I want to introduce.
The Dyads are a small subset of the Lost that were paired up immediately upon emergence from their exowombs and placed into Futura morphs fitted with Multiple Personalities implants. In effect, the two egos of a Dyad grew up together from as early a time as either can remember. This unusual arrangement allowed for the two minds to assist one another in coping with the mental disorders common to the Lost, and the resulting Dyads are often considered among the most stable of the Lost. Now, how should I go about turning these into something threatening while highlighting their stange mindsets and capabilities?

Re: Dyads - An odd idea I want to introduce.
As an update, I'm going to go with having Sex Switch as a standard augmentation for the Dyads. One persona will be 'male' and the other will be 'female' and the body they share can be either, both, or neither. Yeah, I'm going for something odd/fucked-up but totally transhuman here. I'm also considering allowing a player to run a Dyad. Two characters will be built by the player, and he/she will control both. Needless to say, only one will be in play at any given time, so it's not a problem there. Both are likely to have similar skill sets since they share so many experiences and I may enforce an artificial limit here (such as all skill selections by one half of the Dyad must be within 20 CP of the other half's skill selections). Aptitudes can vary dramatically. The cost for the morph and gear can be split between the two component characters, but Rep is purchased individually.

Sounds like an interesting idea. However, I can't help but be reminded of the character Gene/Jean from the 'Quark' TV series. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quark_(TV_series)

One of my characters is somewhat like that. Rather than members of tthe lost generation, they happen to be a thinking AI and it's intelligent sentinel AI bodyguard. It's been an interesting concept so far, and rather fun.

Cool. Let us know how this plays out. I wonder immediately what their agenda would be, if they had any cohesion as a group. Would they be out to convert non-dyadic transhumans to their lifestyle? That could easily turn into a movement... or a cult. :)
