The_Wrench.txt

DedSec knows a guy who is part hacker and full-fledged anarchist. He wears a freaky mask with LED displays capable of bizarre emoticons. He shows up for parties, slipping the beer bottle under the mask. Few people have seen his real face … but he’s cute. He denies it. He’s vulgar, crude, entertaining, and an absolute adrenaline junkie—he lives on the edge.

Dedsec follows a charge, and this guy charges full-steam ahead. They jokingly call him “The Wrench” because he’s the wrench you throw into somebody’s gears to grind them to a halt. It’s easy to get swept up with him in an operation that’s out of control and while you’re scrambling to make things work, he’s having the time of his life. He shows up for the tough operations and is willing to go the extra mile where the others might hesitate. He’s on the front lines kicking police. He might actually be the arsonist on the news that the cops haven’t caught yet. If the media wanted to sell a reason to fear DedSec, he’d be a great reason.

While most of DedSec works behind a screen, this man thrives out in the action and he seems to have no fear. He’s an adrenaline junkie with need to rebel against the establishment, and his energy is infectious. However, the man can cause complications, putting DedSec at risk, and this probably will create conflict at some point.

MARCUS_HOLLOWAY.txt

MARCUS HOLLOWAY moved to Oakland at a young age when his activist parents were forced to leave their San Francisco home because of gentrification. Oakland was a tough experience on them all, and Marcus grew to hate the system. He was enrolled in a community program to keep him safe from the streets, and started to learn how to work with computers there, but everything changed in the summers of 2013 when public unrest was at an all-time high and the city of Oakland proceeded with Phase 2 of their Home Domain Center to “protect people through mass surveillance.”

The Home Domain Center was initially designed to monitor Oakland Port but quickly became an initiative to link all public and private cameras and sensors across all of Oakland into one mass surveillance tool being subsidized by Homeland Security. Nobody knew how much private data they were planning on keeping and for how long, but the program would use licence plate recognition, thermal imaging, body movement and facial recognition to analyze and scan all the data it received.

Unfortunately, the HDC systems wrongly accused Marcus of being the prime suspect in a local high-tech burglary and he was arrested based solely on digital evidence. His computer skills were also used against him because of the nature of the robbery, and he was almost jailed. The Judge in the case took Marcus’s background into account, however, and Marcus was released to perform community service. He went from being a member of the community program to teaching kids about computers. Still, his greatest teacher was the Internet, and he learned from it the way a straight A student was supposed to learn in class.

Regardless, Marcus was rightfully angry and he had his first cause to take down the HDC. He hacked the offices of City Councillors and released private correspondences showing how the councillors planned to hold midnight hearings to keep outcry to a minimum, and how they were keeping certain details about the program hidden including adding more and more surveillance tools to HDC after it’d been officially ratified. He uncovered information about the private military contractor designing the HDC system and how they’d helped the FBI previously in using Stingray cell towers and malicious software to gather data off private computers. Marcus data-mined enough information to undermine HDC, feeding that data to various watch dog groups fighting its implementation in Oakland and giving them the data and tools they needed to beat it back. It’s this action that put him on DedSec’s radar, but sadly, he was still listed as a potential threat and when the HDC died, all that data went to Blume.

Unfortunately, the false accusations against Marcus marked him as a future criminal and threat according to ctOS. He was incensed, and while Silicon Valley might overlook his past, Marcus was angry at the whole system that prejudiced his future and that of his friends. Instead of working shoulder to shoulder with the greatest programmers in Silicon Valley, Marcus looked for a way to even the odds for everyone.

Marcus heard about DedSec through the chat rooms he frequented and they’d heard of him in return. He was impressed with their willingness to embrace diversity and gender, and when he started seeing their operations in action, it hit him like lightning. He’d finally found people that talk the same language as him, have the same passion has him, have the same humor has him. Now all he needed to do was prove he belonged…

Sitara.txt

Sitara’s taken full advantage of the education system. She’s studied marketing, psychology, PR, and just about anything related to art, but most of her hacking ability is self-taught.

She thought moving away from the shallow LA culture to downtown SF would be a healthy change, but found hollow celebrities replaced by soulless tech giants. It’s a perfect place for her artistic rebellion – where culture is being crushed by cold industry. DedSec is her chosen tool to fight back and she’s carefully crafting the SF group in her image, making sure every public message is on-point and every logo packs a punch.

Sitara has a mean streak with a sense of humor. She suffers no fools, but she loves to troll them. Her suggestions for where to draw the line often don’t include a line. She believes the system has completely failed, and until it’s fixed, she’s not going to play nice.

She clicks with Marcus because they are both full-time rebels and very passionate about where DedSec is going. They both know it can be something bigger and they’ll work closely to do it. Sitara wants DedSec to be something to fear – which may create friction with other members, but offers a “devil on the shoulder” type of council for the player. Possible conflict arises when the group focuses more on the “lulz.” While she can party like the rest of them, Sitara sees too much fucking around as a waste of momentum. It will be a challenge to get her to stop and enjoy the trip once in a while.

Congratulations!

You know how to operate a terminal.

Dont stop here though, -a real hacker would

be able to dig a bit deeper and find the secret.

When you meet Josh, itís easy to notice the Aspergers. Heís quiet and introverted, and maybe thereís borderline elements of that in his personality, but the fact is, Josh is a genius. Talking to you is just slowing him down and heís already dispensing with the small talk and harvesting the useful tidbits. He seems impatient, but itís because he doesnít bother with beating around the bush. He doesnít have time for that.

Joshís head is a minefield of ideas, and if heís reacting to a situation, heís doing it wrong. His approach is far more of a regroup and counterattack, which mean setbacks rarely affect him. Heís likely to daydream in conversations, but when the group really needs it, heís the one that gets them back to business. Heís also thinking ahead and building devices and machines the group might need down the road, meaning it might look ridiculous now, but there will be a need for his inventions.

Fortunately, Josh grew up in a household with a family that kept him grounded while still encouraging his mechanical engineering skills. Itís hard not to be as smart as him and not show off, but his family taught him the necessity of building bridges and not burning them. So while volunteering and helping isnít instinctive to him, it is still something he actively pursues to keep those muscles in shape. Josh is pragmatic that way.

Joshís sense of humor also takes some getting used to. It comes off as cocky, but his humor derives mostly from his ability to deflate someone elseís jokes or jabs by turning them back on the other person. He doesnít abide by bullies, and this means that sometimes, he might butt heads with The Wrench or Sitara when they try telling him what to do. Itís not that he hasnít thought of a plan of action they suggest. He already did and decided it wasnít the best course of action for him.

- Brilliant hacker: Smart, sharp, comes from a good home in Oakland.

- Robbed of his future: Wrongfully profiled by a crime prediction algorithm for a crime he didn't commit.

- Taking back control: Uses his programming and computer skills to reveal the truth about the system that wronged him.

- Joins Dedsec: After having seen Dedsec in action and being solidary to their aims, Marcus joins the group.

Why DedSec

You would not believe some of the bullshit I'm finding on the Illuminazis. I found conversations about building new plants in black neighborhoods because "it's not like anybody gives a crap." Literally. Or firing a secretary after she complained about getting harassed by one of their CEOs buddies. This is... I don't even. I can't even. F*#@!

I've found plans to lay people off right before they would have qualified for their retirement plan, or for their stocks vesting. Plans to hire kids straight out of college because they can pay them less, and then lay-off older employees because they won't put up with crap like that. One of these jerk-wads is spying on his ex-wife! He's using company resources to watch her. To track what she buys at the grocery store. To see how much money she has in the bank. He's got her dating profiles flagged and reads through all the emails she gets or sends... Because, of course, his best buddy is CTO at the dating service. That's sick. That's stalking.

These guys, they don't care about other people at all. Civil rights? F*#@ 'em. Privacy? Please! Security? Safety? No, let's bury that report about the worker dying because we cut costs at the manufacturing plant in Richmond. While we're at it, let's get rid of the reports on the ground water contamination. Sounds good!

This is why we need DedSec.

Men like this can't be allowed to continue. We have rights. You and me and everybody we know. We have the right to clean water. We have the right to life! To safety. To privacy. We deserve respect. We deserve the chance to make a living, build the lives we want. All men are created equal? Maybe. But not all men (and women) are given the same opportunities.

Men like this, they take those opportunities, they take their privileges, and they use them to make other people suffer. Because it's convenient. They use their power to invade our lives and control our dreams.

Someone has to fight. Someone has to be the obnoxious jerk who speaks the truth and says "f*#@ you" to anyone who tries to silence them. Someone needs to defend our right to have a goddamned chance! Don't let these bastards control your life! Be subversive! Rebellious! Angry!

DedSec is fighting. What about you? Are you up for it?
