JC lives in a converted office complex in Tuscany. Having rented out a former Dental office it has been converted into an underground cybernetics lab. The whole complex is in a fairly safe neighborhood with extensive security assets (automated and metahuman). As an even bigger bonus, security asks few questions about the businesses under their watch. JC has converted the roof into a makeshift greenhouse, growing ‘real’ foods for his special diet needs and the occasional trade (esp. for real meat).
Internally JC has set up a large number of cybernetic fabrication tools and pieces, rivaling many above-board shops — though specialized pieces are something he’s still looking to fill out. There is also a decent enough set of medical supplies to deal with the installation and repair of cybernetics, bioware, and other enhancements.
The rest of the complex is a maze of small internal offices with strange layouts and corners, conversions of dozens of previous tenants stacked on top of one another. These modifications are not questioned by the land’s owner, who is used to hosting those living somewhat underground lives — so long as the rent comes in. Unfortunately the constant tenant switching means that it is not rare that a collector comes knocking looking for a previous occupant, counteracting this though is the bonus of a large number of open nodes being available from both current tenants and previous ones that the provider never bothered disconnecting.

Bio:

JC has been a shadowrunner since his early teens, having no SIN and a penchant for getting into places he shouldn’t he took to the role naturally. At first his jobs were mostly hired out: covert smash-grabs or other forms of information theft. It wasn’t long, though, before JC was reading through the papers he was ‘liberating’ and noticing that there were things his employers were missing that were far more valuable.

JC started doing independent runs, gathering prototype schematics for cybertech, biotech, and even cutting edge nanotech. He learned his own way around the technology and made himself wealthy from selling the data to the highest bidder. As he sold this data, however, he attracted the attention of an unknown group of power brokers running a secret research program on cutting edge cybertech. Military? MegaCorp? To this day JC doesn’t know, but the money was too good to pass up.

After accepting the job he found himself working in a combination of lab work and shadow work. Stealing data from every major player, then combining the techniques in the lab with world class scientists. Due to his unique role in acquisition, it was decided that he would be test subject as well:
His internal biochemistry was altered to allow for maximum acceptance of the modifications, his eyes fitted with cutting edge replacements, his infiltration wet suit built to bond with his biology and hide even signs of heat and respiration. A rifle was built to his precise profile, modified with cutting edge, undetectable parts. A nearly unlimited budget backed his every operation. It was a runner’s dream.

Then… something happened. JC isn’t sure what, but memory holes and missing time started happening with frequent regularity. In hidden corners JC would find hidden notes, written in his hand writing and addressed to himself. It quickly became apparent that something else was in the works, and it was clearly time to get out.

Taking all the tech he could, he made his escape and ran from the lab deep in the UCAS until he found his way into Virginia. Unfortunately, signs are that he’s still being searched for by his former ‘employers’, and any nation or megacorp he shelters in offers little protection. Luckily, JC seems to have made preperations he doesn’t remember: something is causing all of his activities to blip off of records almost immediately after they’re recorded.

Finally thinking he’s shaken them, he has settled into an old office complex in Tuscany. He’s been able to set up a garden and run a silent ‘street doc’ operation where he can put all the techniques he learned to use. He’s also introduced himself to Mahinder Lakdawala, an eccentric doctor well known, in the right circles, for working with brain issues.

Unfortunately, cutting edge implants are of a somewhat limited demand, and without any other regular work it is time for JC to go back to running in the shadows that he started in. Luckily, now he’s bringing not just his considerable talents but also some incredibly sophisticated gear — finding work should not pose a problem.

Goals

  • Settle down into current workspace, fill out with equipment for more permanent street doc-ing
  • Improve Medical Skills, also start gather knowledge and equipment for bio-engineered mods
  • Get stable work with a group runners, preferably doing work that won’t expose his location to his pursuers.
  • Reveal the nature of his former employers, unlock blocked memories of what projects he was working on
