A character in The Polysemous Foundation.



  • Description and Background:

From a relatively affluent family, Max had a privileged childhood and grew up resenting it. There was so much suffering in the world, and everyone she knew seemed not to care. She decided to do something about it.

If it had been protests alone, her family would have supported her - but she figured she needed to do more. The world doesn't listen to slogans and demonstrations, it needs action. And it turns out that she was good at action - she'd been studying martial arts for years, anyway, and she had a knack from breaking and entering. She spent a while with a group, tracking down corporate misdeeds and messing with them, either by leaking stories to the press or by just wrecking their shit. The trouble came when the group she was with didn't share her skills, or her dedication - one got caught, and quickly all of them were being rounded up. Words like 'terrorism' were thrown around, and things looked pretty bad for Max until the Polysemous Foundation turned up to have a quiet word.

Now she has another chance to use the skills she's picked up, though she's really not sure if she's using them for good or if she's selling out.
