Description[edit | edit source]
Hating what the Hunters had made of society, Yani Amini tried to strike back. However, during an assassination attempt on the Hunter in charge of The Enclave, he was caught in the act and sent into the Complex for life.
He knows how the system works, and how best to take advantage of it. He's a survivor and plans that one day, he'll get free and enact his revenge on the Hunters.
Origin[edit | edit source]
None can escape the hunter’s cold-blooded rules. Breaking the law results in a swift sentence in the Deathgarden. Even though he’s been condemned to the Deathgarden for trying to assassinate a hunter, Yani Amini still believes he has chosen the right path.
Born and raised in Algiers’ Enclave, Amini witnessed the hunters’ barbaric methods since childhood. His father was a famous scavenger and Amini’s childhood was rife with protest and political turmoil.
When The Divided took control of the Enclave, they set up different policies. Their rules weren’t harsh—they were vicious and unforgiving. Dissidents could be sentenced to countless deaths or have their body parts shattered numerous times. Alone, Amini didn’t stand a chance against the hunters, though he refused to sit by idly, watching their abuse and oppression.
One of Amini father’s friends, a retired scavenger named Safia Zeroual, approached him one day. She told him about the Turning Point, a contingent of rebels who wanted to wrest control back from the hunters. Zeroual sensed his rebellious nature and invited him to join the cause. Eagerly, he accepted.
“The hunters’ time is nearly done, and they know it. The people of the Enclaves will rise up and we’ll take back what’s rightfully theirs.”
His first objective: kill Fadil Taha, a prominent leader. Zeroual gave him a poison needle and all the details he needed to succeed in this dangerous mission.
One night during a Bloodharvest match, Amini stealthily approached Taha from behind. Bracing himself to kill a human being for the first time, he tightened his hand around the needle. He took a deep breath and just when he lurched forward—
A hunter spotted him. An alarm sounded and within moments he was restrained and being dragged off to the cells. Not long after the hunters made an example out of him. He was thrust into the Bloodharvest with an unattainable sentence to earn back his freedom.
Sacrificing all he had been for the cause, Amini adopted the alias ‘Ghost.’ His unmatched knowledge of the Enclave and Bloodharvest give him the advantage he needs to exact his revenge on the hunters. Even if Amini can’t kill them, he can at least outshine and humiliate them at their own game.
Vambrace Powers[edit | edit source]
Default[edit | edit source]
|Active Camo||Grants invisibility to any scavengers within its area of affect.||"This is really clever: a cloud of specialized nano-machines swarm around you, each recording an image in the area in front of it and relaying that to a counterpart on the other side of you, which displays it."|
Alternative[edit | edit source]
|Clone||Creates a clone of you that runs in the direction you were looking.||"This is a variation on the tech behind Active Camo. A swarm of nanomachines, equipped with light emitters, create a three-dimensional image of you. It's not that convincing up close, but it's good enough at a distance."|
Perks[edit | edit source]
|Ocular Implants||Objectives are seen from further away.||"I can change up your eyes with elements of an Eagle's: making the fovea deeper and more densely-packed with cone cells. It won't help you see in the dark, but you'll be able to discern objects from each other at a greater distance."|
|Sniper||Reduced spread from Vambrace shots.||"You know how some creatures hibernate? It's like that, but not so extreme - we don't want you sleeping in the Garden. When you crouch, your system is flooded with an artificial Hibernation Induction Trigger. It calms your heart, causes the reuptake of adrenaline and basically means you can take the shots without shaking hands."|
|Firmware||Gathering blood grants immunity to Hacked crates to you and all scavengers within 15 meters for a short time.||"The Body Pile can be set up with a broad-band jamming device, which will block the Hunter's tracking system in hacked crates. It doesn't last long, so plan carefully."|
|Lucky Charm||Chance to get additional blood from a Body Pile. Chances increase every failed attempt.||"Stepping out into the Garden is always a roll of the dice, but you can turn that randomness in your favor. If you're lucky enough, Body Piles might shower you with extra blood. Or they might not."|
|Zero Cool||Less reveal time from hacked crates.||"An implanted ECM system that quickly located the Hunter's tracking frequency and floods it with noise, breaking the Hunter's lock."|
|Rich Get Richer||After delivering blood, grants infinite Bolts for a time.||"When you've deposited blood, the collection system can be used as a temporary storage for bolt Nanoparticle Ink. Use it or lose it, as the system will purge after a while."|

Background Story[edit | edit source]
Yani Amini was born into the Enclaves. He had everything he needed provided for him. However, he had second-thoughts about the Hunter's rule. They ruled with an iron fist, even the smallest infractions will result in time in the Deathgarden.
Amini wasn't too fond of that. He was a resident of the Algiers Enclave. His parents were supporters of The Gauntlet. His father was a former successful Runner, and his mother a Producer of Chanpionships and broadcasts. As Amini grew up, he enmeshed himself with the politics of the Enclave, seeing the Hunters' ruling methods firsthand.
Algiers was ruled by The Divided, so the policies were more vicious than most. They allowed custom sentences, straying from the normal 'participate in a certain number of trials' or 'collect a certain amount of NPI'; instead, they went with 'die a certain number of times' or 'lose a certain amount of body parts.' Amini thought it wasn't right, but thought there was nothing he could do.
One day, he was approached by his father's longtime friend: Safia Zeroual, another former runner. She told Amini there may be a chance he could help after all.
She gave him a poisoned needle, telling him to be at The Senate at 19:30. He was going to assassinate Fadil Taha, leader of the Algiers Enclave. Amini was already invited to The Senate for a viewing party of The Bloodharvest. He knew what he had to do.
Just as he was about to do the job, he was caught red-handed. He was thrown into The Bloodharvest for life.
He only had one goal now: survive. He knew one day he would be free, and he wouldn't give up until that day.
