Hiraku Muramoto

Human male Shadowrunner, age 26


Hiraku has always been too curious for his own good. At the age of 7 Hiraku ran away from home to satisfy his curiosity about the world. He was returned to his family a few weeks later only to run away again at ages 8, 10 and 11. At age 13 it finally stuck and Hiraku has been on his own ever since; always seeking answers to questions no one wants asked.

Hiraku has “eccentric” interests: medicine, automotive repairs, electronics, sword fighting, arcana, and more. He is always looking to know more but soon is off to the next interesting topic. In addition, Hiraku likes to think of himself as something of a modern samurai, or now ninja, but has little knowledge about Japanese tradition so he often gets things a little “off” in his portrayal of a samurai.
