Eclipse Phase - Be All that End All
The Token Black Guy
Jamal is convinced that something strange is going on in the galaxy. Despite the Factors and signs of dead alien civilizations like the Iktomi, the sheer mathematical odds insist that there should be more life in the galaxy. So where is it? His goal is to find out, and in pursuit of this you study the relics left behind on various exoplanets. Equal parts conspiracy theorist, treasure hunter, and scientist, he has the skills and training to decode the evidence and artifacts left behind by unknown entities and life forms. Jamal is a valued expert for gatecrashing expeditions, but you avoid working for hypercorps because you believe, like other argonauts, that any discoveries made should be available to all.
