Manuel "Hardcase" Calaveras
Disappeared private eye ork
One of the skinniest orks you’ll ever meet, Hardcase is a private eye trying to go legit after a long life of crime. Going legit is hard, though, so Shadowrunning paid the bills in the meantime, and the Duchess sure paid a lot of money.
His Bio, in his own words:
“Was part of a gang, once upon a time. Went to jail for it too. Served my nickel – and then some for bad behavior. After that I drifted for a while, picking up some skills and surviving day after day. Got lucky on my way into town, met up with a good man who had the sense of humor to learn me a trade. Now I’m an honest-to-God private detective.
“Problem is, work’s slow for tuskers with a record. So I got that going against me. I take odd jobs where I can, just trying to pay the bills and get out of this game. If you got work I’ll take it, I don’t mind much what it is.”
