Looks good so far, it's hard to comment without a background or anything like that though as a lot of what we look for is if everything in his story fits. Things like reasons for his long distance runner skill. Does he run regularly to maintain that? Just as an example.

Once you have more there we'll be able to pick it apart a bit more.

To slim to really pick at, though I am curious in his equipment what a " Bioaugmentation lock resetter" is supposed to be? Is it one meant to deal with locks based soley on biometrics (retinal scans, dna, etc.) if so how does it do that? Wouldn't fiddling with the electronics be simpler? Is this meant to legally do so? If so wouldn't that mean more about changing the electronic database of the corp? Unless of course this is a one off lock.

Locksmith- works, Lockrunner- is this supposed to be a less than legit locksmith?
