Carol "Cat" Mctavish
A retired Scottish runner, She spends most of her time running Litehouse Industries and as a Fixer for higher paying jobs. She has been known to pay for jobs herself if they lead to bettering the community or stopping someone the cops refuse to or can't. Rumors say she has contacts high up in the Denver government, Some believe she even can gain an audience with Ghostwalker himself. What is known is that she is in a relationship with a runner that goes by the name Tarot (will go into detail on her later). She is also one of the best snipers in the world and can disappear from anyone she really wants to hide from. Because of this skill, no one knows where she lives, but it is rumored to be in the northern section of the old Sioux sector.
Fixer and head bartender of 1UP! Lo-Do. He deals with lower paying jobs from most of the FRFZ, He has also been known to brief runners with Cat is unavailable. You will see him behind the bar most of the time, but enjoys the company of a small teacup cat that hangs around the building. It seems to have been given to the bar after its owner died on the job.
Jess is a small-time fixer that operates out of 1UP! colfax, She is part of Cat's network of Fixers and moonlights as a bartender at that same 1UP!. Any jobs from the Warrens tend to come through her. Her location to the warrens is close but not inside of it, yet.
This ork is known to be a member of the children of the dragon. There is a rumor that she is a drake and once belonged to Big D. many believe this rumor to be true, some even think she is now a drake for Ghostwalker. The only thing people know for sure is that she aids the draco foundation in Denver. She is seen at their building downtown most days and seems to have some sort of work schedule with them. Some say she is just Ghostwalkers spy in the foundation or maybe they know she is his agent. No one has been willing to confirm this though.
Ronald "Shade" Edwards
Owner of both a high fashion clothing shop under the name of Safe Life Defense and a pet shop under the name of Safe Life pets. After the paladin medical fiasco he saw an opportunity and bought up two of the paladin buildings and in partnership with an old runner friend of his created a company named Vitals, I know not very creative this one. He mostly moved out of Denver when the countries left, but he does have a travel visa and comes back into to town to check on his holdings in town from time to time. Some say he used to be one of Cat's runners.
Colonel Shane "chrome King" Bennett
Originally a Colonel in the DIA, Bennett was an expert in
regular and matrix counter-intelligence. His preferred methods were to set traps and then use back-traces to catch the
perpetrators. As he rose in the ranks, he also displayed a talent for planning and executing operations. He was assigned
to Denver in 2059 and got Ghostwalker’s attention in 2064
when he successfully penetrated the Dragon’s Lair Matrix
node. Instead of having Bennett eliminated, Ghostwalker
His Matrix persona is simple yet ﬂashy. He looks like an
elven warrior with long ﬂowing white hair and a normal face,
but the rest of his body is covered in a shiny chrome with a
chrome crown on his head.
Bennett is best described as self-centered, bordering on
sociopathy with a distinct appetite for power. He considers
everyone around him as tools (some worth more than others) to be used or obstacles to be destroyed. His preferred
methods to recruit new agents are blackmail coupled with
some kind of fear. Bennett has no problem destroying lives or
killing to get what he wants. The only true loyalty he has is to
Ghostwalker, and that loyalty is born out of a delicate balance
between his hunger for power and fear.
A shy man, trace is a great doctor. He used to run in the shadows after his husband got killed in the same line of work. It was he who actually gave his husbands old teacup sized bastet to Cat. He shows up every few days to see how the little guy is doing, but he is not the best at remembering to feed and take care of pets. What he is good at though is patching people back up, making drugs, and installing ware. This man is the head doctor in the Denver branches of the Vital's clinics. He will work at odd hours just for those runners who don't want any records, just know that unless you are willing to pay top dollar the ware may not be top shelf or even close too it.
Wade "Deadpool" Wilson
also known as the merc with the mouth, wilson is a very charismatic mercenary. He is extremely talkative and has snappy comebacks for days. He became deadpool after contracting strain 1a while trying to get cured of cancer. Turns out he is now just over the top in style and knows that he can't die. it is rumored that a spirit also cursed him with the inability to die by tying his life to that of the spirits. What ever the reason, many have tried to kill him, but none have managed to pull it off just yet
Viktor Ivanov, or just “Ivanov” to most, is a human, middle-aged Ukrainian ex-pat and a mid-level Denver fixer with an active smuggling network. He runs a taxi and delivery service out of the Hub but his real business is moving material and people around the area by less than legal means. Viktor always seems to “know a guy” and is happy to set up meetings or acquire items for a nominal fee. He will of course also be happy to arrange transport if needed.

If you ever want info on the old matrix, this is your guy. he has been running the place for over 40 years, so he knows a thing or two on how the matrix used to work and how it works now. Just hope he has the legendary long life of his ancestors so you can pick his brain for info before a job.
Being the boss of the prowling warlocks is not an easy task. The gang likes to act as a haven for adepts and mages that are shunned. They are still ruthless, however they do so with a kind of mercy and kindness not normally seen amoung gangs. They ease the new guys into the game and care about their own. Don't take this lightly though, Freeman is still as roothless as any yakuza boss

When the order came for the countries to leave she decided to become a FRFZ citizen and stay in the city. She now works for ZDF as a dispatcher and retained her rank of sergent
An Aztlani by birth Ramirez has since become more mobile and sticks to work in and around Denver. He has had a few close calls with the ZDF since he doesn't pledge is allegiance to Ghostwalker like the dragon had requested of anyone who stays in the city. This does not stop him from doing his job though. When he isn't flying you can catch him in the smoky hills of Aurora, namely the Borealis
Armando "manny" Garcia
Manny is a middle-aged Ork and Denver native who has a small “magical” souvenir shop on a back street of the Hub. The trinkets for sale in the front of the shop are mostly over-priced non-magical display pieces and local art items there for sale to the tourists. The back room however is a well stocked alchemical workshop with an extensive supply of genuine talismanta and reagents. He is a talented alchemist and enchanter that will create foci and special preparations on commission for people that he has a good relationship with. The prices are higher than average but so is the quality of the work. Manny lives in the apartment above the shop with his wife and their 6 kids, so if the right amount of nuyen is mentioned he is always willing to open the shop afterhours for those with a pressing need.
Mia Anderson is a female elf that must be at least middle-age but looks (and sometimes acts) like a teenager. Despite this juvenile façade she actually holds a position as a senior research archivist at the Atlantean Foundation in DeeCee. When Arcane was passing through the area he spent several weeks there accessing as many of the Foundations archives as he could get permission to view. After a short time Mia became aware of Arcane’s work due to its similarly to her own equally obscure research interests. Over time a semi-professional relationship developed with Mia allowing Arcane access to some restricted Atlantean Foundation resources and in return he provides freelance research and translation work for her. Arcane moved on to Denver but the relationship has continued thru the Matrix and with occasional clandestine meetings. Unknown to both, this activity has put Arcane on the Foundations “radar” and Mia’s superiors have begun compiling files on the Shadowrunner with a skillset in arcano-archaeology. As things often happen in the corporate world once the Atlantean Foundation took an interest in Arcane their competitor, the Draco Foundation, started their own files on him.
