This character lives in multiple worlds, and is a secretive hacker and spy to boot. But for transparency, I want the players to know what’s going on.
To the Team
The team has heard them referred to as “Agent 1337” and they’ve introduced themselves as “Alex G. Shelby” or “Alex Gemini Shelby”. This is an alias - they haven’t revealed their real name.
They would have told the team the following, at least:
- I work for AEGIS and I’m working with the rest of you as a liaison. I’ll get stuff from AEGIS for you, but they’ll also ask me to do stuff.
- You can call me Alex or Shelby or whatever you like.
- I don’t have any superpowers other than my huge brain, but I have bionic limbs and other useful implants. If I look like I’m in danger, yeah, save my dumb ass, but I’m not that squishy.
Their designation within AEGIS is “Agent 1337”, apparently a joke by somebody during new agent intake. They report to a succession of superiors, like any other junior agent. They might do surveillance on other people (including the team), but they are being monitored too.
As a Superhero
Alex currently doesn’t have a separate superhero ID or code name, and may lean on the team to come up with something - or go their own way and be absurd, forcing them to intervene. They probably just wear a basic mask to obscure their identity while on missions.
They have enough credentials they can present as an AEGIS agent to let them make their Soldier-based moves.
As a Civilian
They have a cover ID as Alex Shelby that will pass any background check that AEGIS could be expected to defeat. They have a dorm room, “the Satellite of Love”, festooned with computing power and geek adornments.
