I'm incredibly new to Eclipse phase (I haven't even played a single game yet) and I was going through the process of making a character when I realized something.
In the lore of EP, the current year is 10 A.F. and I had assigned my characters age at 20. I had been thinking that she was born ~ ten years before the fall and wound up dying during the fall. She was re-instantiated at age 18 or twenty, which means that she spent ~ 8 years as an Infomorph. How would this affect her growth? I remember reading about the Lost Generation, and while that mostly dealt with the Watts-McCleod Strain, accelerated Growth/training, and a lack of human supervision, I was wondering if there would be similar effects for my character?
I was also having a hard time figuring out how she would acquire a body, or even if she should at all. My former plan was to use the line from the Skineasthesia hypercorp page that states that they occasionally give out experimental morphs, and have them give her an exalt morph that looks like a ruster, in an attempt to create a higher-class biomorph adapted for mars (All the same implants with maybe a few extra and some extra traits, both positive and negative to show that it was a prototype).
I was also thinking that maybe she would be given a neotenic body right away and put into some sort of governmental system directly after the fall (Sympathy for children?) or maybe even incorporated into the same program that the Lost came out of.
