Anyone know who these guys are?

I'm just going to guess the left one is a scary SysOp and the right one is a Criminal runner, but maybe someone knows more? whistle

I guess the right one is Ken "Express" Tenma.

I assume they are the two other runners that will be in the box -- the Creation and Control about page also showed two runners. The one on the right might be Ken "Express" Tenma (as he appears on a card with flavor text referring to Tenma clones).

What if the old dude is some kind of Criminal-Professor? Like The Doer - The first copy of each event in this deck does not count against your influence limit. It's not so unlikely - have we seen a any corp characters depicted on FFG A:NR website in this manner?

Anyway, I hate the manga like style of the right fella but love the cyber-steampunk gentelman who traveled through time straight from dishonored right to New Angeles!

Alright, looking at Early Bird:

We can probably assume that the right one is Ken "Express" Tenma

Meh, boring

How about:

Senpai Tanaka
Upgrade - SysOp
Rez cost: 2
Trash cost: 3
When a run is initiated on this server, you may install a piece of ice from HQ as the innermost piece of ice protecting this server. Derez that ice at the end of the run.
I've got another surprise for them yet...

Edit: better yet: "Return that ice to HQ at the end of the run"

Ooohh, this may be a long shot,
but what if...

The old dude on the left is the original Tenma?
Face and hair are rather similar, it's just the skintone that doesn't really match, but I'm willing to overlook that.

Tenma line... I guess we can infer that the Tenma Line of clones all have white hair. And that runner is a rogue clone, kinda like Reina (edit is a rogue Biorid) (which I've not found reference for ).

Ehh, the card says "Cyborg - G-mod" and her hair's only slightly white... I'm gonna say you're high on something

Reina is a cyborg like Gabe or Kit, not a clone. I think Ken Tenma's game text will start with "Identity: clone" or "Identity: natural - clone".

If the older man is a corp character, he'd have to be neutral (someone from Jinteki would be Asian). But I think it's a runner character, maybe the 3rd Criminal runner.

There might be some none Asian guys up there in Jinteki HQ I guess. They would value family and honor a lot, but professionalism at most I suppose. He could be like John Blackthorne of Jinteki.

According to Damon Stone, "She is a former member of an elite special forces unit, and making her a chess master made a lot of sense."

She seems like a pretty unique cyber terrorist, and I'm going to throw a guess she's not a clone (although there is nothing I guess ruling that out?) In any case, she is clearly both genetically modified and supplanted with cybernetic enhancements.

Fixed that for you.

As a side note, "Tenma" in Japanese means "Pegasus". So I think all the reernce to moving with Tenma-related things make alot of sense with that.

Mala Tempora insert doesn't make any mention of cloning. Does say her hair is dyed too.

Doesn't mean she's not a clone, but I don't see any supporting evidence, so Occam's Razor and all...

Until I find out otherwise, I'm sticking with Admiral Whiskeypunk as the left guy's name.

Oops, I meant that Reina is a rogue bioroid, like Tenma is a rogue clone

Good catch! Looks younger on Alias, but there's no reason your net-presence should look as old as your real self, right?

No, the Rex Program hasn't started yet.

It's also worth noting that the background on the right is Harmony Med-tech, so the background on the left is likely the art for one of the other Jinteki identities.

Precedence tells us that those are the other two runners.
