I was going to save this sketch for a Shadowrun story arc, but darnit, she’s cool and I want to show her off.
Basilisk is one of my Shadowrun characters. She started out as teenage gymnast, but was kidnapped on her way home by a pit fighting league who needed a replacement for the “quick, agile fighter” spot on their roster. (You don’t want to know what happened to the last fighter…) As a result, she woke up with nearly a million Nuyen worth of cyberware implanted in her, hence the cybernetic legs, forearms, and balance tail. She’d also had a variety of cosmetic “improvements” made, turning her into a red-skinned lizard creature with the ring name “Basilisk”.
Her introduction to the game saw the rest of the Shadowrun group breaking her free of her captors as a part of their mission, and she decided to tag along and join them on further missions. After all, who can say no to a face like that? 😛
