I've been getting back in an EP mood lately, so thought i'd run through lifepath character generation and see what I come up with. I've never actually played the game before, but have read some setting info.
I've reched the gear purchase section and run into analysis paralysis. :) I'm also kind of fuzzy on the character concept, and wondered what the hive mind might come up with.

I'm thinking this character was some kind of child prodigy. His transition from the Researcher aptitude to scientist was entirely random, I swear. I thought he might have worked in the initial uplift research, possibly running into ethical quams along the way. THe Fall lead him to reassess his priorities, and he started more seriously helping transhumanity. I'm not quite sure how tojustify the criminal interests–it seems pretty far out of left field.
Any tips on how to spend CR 50K+ would be appreciated. Thanks, all!
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.
