BACKGROUND:
You've always lived in the Badlands, the remnants of human civilization's peak.  You live independantly, suriving on wits and more than a little luck.  But you've got skills:  you can fix almost anything, track game like a pro, and survive the worst weather Mother Nature can throw at you.  You don't need anyone, certainly not some high-tech big city folk telling you what to do.

BACKGROUND:
Ok, maybe this isn't what you dreamed of doing as a child, but it's good work nonetheless.  You're part of the system that keeps Olympus running.  Everyone assumes that GAIA just does all the work, but you know better.  Without administrators like you, the city would be shut down within hours.  And there's plenty of intrigue:  the in-fighting, political alliances, public betrayals.  And lately, you've come to suspect that you're part of another System, one hidden from the public view, one that's using you in ways you don't even understand.  Are they tapping your phone?  Following you?   And what does it have to do with those files you've been auditing...Maybe the life of an administrator isn't so dull after all.

BACKGROUND:
You ARE the law.  At least that's what you tell yourself.  You've always wanted to be cop, ever since you were a little kid.  Sure, no body treats you with enough respect--your get hassled by crooks, the general public, and even your own boss.  But you know that when it comes down to it, you're the thin line between order and chaos in Olympus, and that without you, paradise would crumble.

BACKGROUND:
Olympus is a nice enough place.  There are some easy marks--many folks don't even lock their doors.  So, you found your way here from that Badside hellhole you were raised in (admittedly, you were chased out by the local authorities...) and have set up shop in what passes for Olympus' underworld.  You mainly just jack cars and pull off petty thefts, but your contact says he's got a tip on a big one:  a supply of landmate parts just arrived from Poseidon.  This could make you rich...if you survive it...

BACKGROUND:
You can actually remember stepping on that old Claymore mine back in Columbia. But after that, it's just fragments of memories from the following 6 months.  You remember lying there in the field, waiting to die, then the blackness, the voice of your buddies around you, more blackness.  Then the hospitals, the bright lights, the feeling of weightlessness.  The next real memory you have is the morning in the lab, when they activated your new body and woke you up.  After months of rehab, you finally learned to walk again.

That was during the war, when you were still valuable.  But once the war was over, you were left on your own, with maintenance bills piling up.  So you joined a small band of mercs and make enough to cover your debts.  But you're starting to get tired of hassling Third World natives and nickel and dime mobsters.  You've come to Olympus to look for some real work...but you have no real idea what that means yet...

BACKGROUND:
You're smart, able and loyal.  You quickly rose up through the ranks of the local police and were headhunted to Olympus' FBI (which is much different from its American counterpart) as one of its youngest agents ever.  They say you've got potential, and there are a lot of eyes following your career.  Your job is to monitor bioroids in the city.  But what do they really expect you to find?  And how much can you trust your political bosses, who are bioroids themselves?

BACKGROUND:
Yeah, you're a freak all right.  You don't know if you're the product of some bizarre post-war genetic disorder or a crazed Dr. Frankenstein working out of some Badside lab.  However you came to be, here you are in Olympus.  You've found a surprisingly tolerant society and seem to be fitting in better than you have anywhere.  But you suspect that they headhunted you out of the Badside for a reason, only no one's told you a thing.  For the moment, you're a "guest" of the State.  You only need to agree to a few simple medical exams...

BACKGROUND:
You're not a crook, you're a businessman.  Sure, sometimes it is necessary to circumvent the law to facilitate a transaction, but that's not the same thing as stealing now is it?  And you're pretty good at your job.  People come to you when they need to get something into or out of Olympus, no questions asked.  And it seems like that things are picking up these days, lots of shipments to bring in.  Only, for once, there's a little voice inside you wondering if it's a good idea to help these guys bring in these unmarked crates...who knows what could be in them?

BACKGROUND:
There is no better place in the world, in fact in the history of the world, than Olympus for you.  It is brimming with technology and a guy like you can make a decent living.  You've always loved machines, more than you have people in fact.  You can spend days working on the actuators for a robotic hand or just cobbling together an old lawnmower engine.  Sometimes you're narrow-vision annoys your friends (particularly your significant other), but they all know that you're the guy to come to when something's broken.

BACKGROUND:
They label you insane.  They hunt down your people and use all their propaganda to turn others against you.  But you know what is really happening.  The old Imperialists are climbing from the debris of the war, ready to subjugate the rest of the world once again.  Only this time, they won't succeed.  You have the commitment, technology and the numbers to stop them.  And to show them you mean business, their jewel, Olympus, is your first target.

BACKGROUND:
They think that it will be technology that will deliver them from ruins of the last war.  But you know better.  Enlightenment will only come through spiritual devotion, personal sacrifice, and holy inspiration.  The people of Olympus muddle through their daily lives, enteratined and distracted from the reality going on around them--the dangers of technology, the threats from bioroids as a new super-race.  But you're here to save them, whether they wish to be or not.
