Bio:

Virgil Solomon was raised in the sticks. Always a bit of a thrill-seeker, he spent most of his formative years fixing and racing old cars and scrapping with the other kids. He eventually grew out of it, but that lust for adventure and adrenalin never really died.

When his brother Castor went missing, the family split up to find him. Virgil was sent to Aztlan, where he followed a lead to a local paramilitary organization The Zetas. He managed to join up with them and spent four years working his way up the ranks.

He eventually gathered that The Zetas were a subsidiary of Aztechnology, and further that his brother might’ve been taken to a research facility in Aztlan. He infiltrated the facility. He found nothing. Knowing that he might’ve simply overlooked something (he might be dumb, but he’s smart enough to know it), he downloaded the research lab’s database into a prepared headsafe and fled to Seattle.

This leaves Virgil in a strange position. On the one hand, one of the Big Ten wants his head. On the other, they want to keep his head away from anyone else. If Virgil is captured by anyone but Aztech, some other Corp will get a headfull of their data. Thus, they do their best to keep him off the wanted lists while simultaneously sending hitman after hitman to retrieve the safe.

Virgil, for his part, just wants to find his brother and go home. Or, failing that, make a life for himself running the shadows.

Though they aren’t related by blood, Virgil and his brother Ulysses have many similarities: they’re tough as nails, fond of guns and wary of magic and hacking. However, where Ulysses’ main strategy involves blasting until there’s nothing left to blast, absorbing hit after hit and never going down, Virgil is more sneaky; the John McClane to his brother’s Arnold Schwarzenegger. He also has a fondness for vehicles and a tendency to name his possessions, as evidenced by his pistols Corrin and Carrie and his shotguns Meg and Janet.
