Mako Trig

From fattwiki

Mako Trig is a member of the Chime and a Stratus who specializes in fogging (hacking) and infiltration. He was formerly a student of the September Institute, but ran away.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

He has nervous eyes, a sharp face, a young body, very slightly blue skin, and spiky yellow hair.[1] He is cast as Bren Turner from EX Troopers.[2] In the Mesh, he looks like himself but with sharp teeth and a shark fin on his back.

After being shot during the BluSky mission, he has marks on his chest from the cyberware used to treat his wounds.[3]

In "Through The Crosshairs", he's wearing ratty jeans, a t-shirt, a weird pink hat, and future flannel. Keith describes the outfit as "grunge-era but if there was a lot of colored hair and a lot of pinks". Later in the same mission his outfit is described as jean shorts, a yellow t-shirt, and a pink and grey flannel with one sleeve rolled up and one sleeve torn off. He then changes to the salmon and grey House Rosemoon uniform ("Reaching Out").

In "A Splintered Branch, A Ringing Bell Pt. 1", at the gala, Mako is wearing blue jeans, a black t-shirt, and a blinding white suit jacket covered in pink bow ties. In the formal dinner in "A Splintered Branch, A Ringing Bell Pt. 2", he's wearing teal green pants, black shoes with white socks, a see-through plastic t shirt which despite his best efforts shows his nipples, and an orange blazer.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Mako is quick, clever, and charming.[1] He doesn't like to take most situations seriously and doesn't trust authorities.

Directives:[edit | edit source]

  • When your lies about your identity or your past put the mission at risk, mark experience.
  • When adhering to your persona hinders the mission, mark experience.
  • When your smart-ass mouth ruins the mission, mark experience.
  • When you take something the September Institute wants, mark experience.[1]

History and Involvement[edit | edit source]

Mako was inducted into the Institute at the age of four, in the early and experimental years of the program, and was raised by foster parents. He was more of a rule follower during his time there, and only really broke out of that mold once he left.

In actuality, Mako is one of a model of clones based off of Maryland September's DNA. The majority of his memories of September are as artificial as his stratus ability. Letting him leave the planet was a deliberate experiment on the Institute's part.

During the period between "Our Hostage Below" and "A Thing You Know About Nightclubs", Mako took part in two missions. First, Mako ran a mission against Liberty and Discovery Automaticorps to sabotage blueprints that they stole. The place was mostly drones, so Mako was able to fog everything, and then Aria was in charge of extraction. Second, Cass and Mako ran a mission targeting a convoy carrying supplies to September, with AuDy piloting the Kingdom Come to bring them into space.[4]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

In Mechnoir, Mako has two Engineer trainings (granting the adjectives clever and quick) and one Criminal training (granting the adjective charming).[5]

In the Sprawl, he has the stats Cool: 0, Edge: 0, Meat: -1, Mind: 1, Style: 2 and Synth: 2[1]
