Skinny, human metatype young woman with short, unkempt brown hair and brown eyes, who alternates between bouts of ironic mania and quiet intensity.

Death Otter is a delinquint, half(?) crazy hacker chica who's emerged into the shadows after a long time misbehaving in secret behind the scenes. Volatile and irreverent, she seems driven largely by the whims of the moment and her own gut reactions.

Once You Get to Know Her

Bethany Cotter came from the kind of life most folks in Seattle dream about. Oh, not the high life in a penthouse condo, but a solid spot in the near-mythical 'middle class.' Despite this stability, or maybe because of it, Beth was a teenage hellion who used her powers over the Matrix to act out and define herself. Her parents were both scientists, researchers that worked for the UCAS government. They had 'emigrated' from MCT when Beth was very young, changing their names in the process to avoid retribution. But retribution couldn't be denied forever.

One day they just...vanished between leaving work and getting home. Though Beth was left alone, she became beneficiary of a family trust that kept a roof over her head. That wasn't enough though. She wanted answers. Bethany ransacked their files in the Matrix, finding nothing out of place. However, not long after the investigation into their disappearance was closed, an optical disk arrived addressed to her. On it was data that detailed who her parents had been and why they'd fled their old employer...and why UCAS had given them asylum. It also revealed who Beth's real parent was, though gave agonizing few details. Far from satisfying her, these small discoveries only made her need real answers even more. So she set out to get some.

So Death Otter was born. Beth had been toying with various computer misbehavior for quite some time by then under that moniker; now she just put her talents to more purposeful use. Delving into the shadows under an assumed name and funding herself with a loan from some very questionable sorts, there's a good chance Beth is in way over her head here...but it's the only way she has any chance of finding out what happened to her parents, and finding out what and who she really is.

For personal remindering

Situational awareness check. This is my list for a given scene:
• Security: Who has the contract here? How long have they had it? Response time? Local/corp laws for firearms, assault, arson, etc? (UCAS default)
 • Gangs: Is there a gang presence? What territory do they claim? What illegal activities are they into?
 • Organized Crime: Who operates here? What operations are they running?
 • Politico: Is there a presence? Do they have interests here?
 • Academics: do they have an interest? What do they know about it? Engineering, Geology, Parazoology, etc?
 • Local government: What are they doing here? How much effort and money is going here?
 • Major construction? What is it, who is the contractor and who is the owner? Plans available?
 • Tamanous: operating here? Closest assets?
 • Environment: Noise levels? Matrix perception? Background count? Resonance feel? Population? Demographics? Traffic? Nearest highway? Air corridor? LZ?
 • Threat level?
 • Hazards: Pollution? Radiation? Awakened paracritters? Ghouls? Spirits and/or toxic and/or insect spirits? Blood magic? Other?
 • Resources: closest fixer, fence, safehouse, backup? Short notice? Hot loot?
