Sharp

Most people find Sharp off-putting because of his cybernetic enhancements. I find him off-putting because he's a sociopath with almost no regard for human life. I shudder to think what he's capable of, and I say this as a person who spends most of her time interfacing with a disembodied artificial intelligence.
Central

Alex McTeague, known as Sharp, is an agent employed by Invisible. He can be selected at the start of the game in either his on-file or archive variation.

On-file

It is arguable whether or not the human being born as Alex McTeague still exists. Driven by an obsession with perfecting his form, he has replaced most of his parts with a mechanical or vat-grown replacement. Originally funding his transhumanism through corporate bounty hunting, he joined Invisible when his augmentation ambitions grew beyond what is available on the open market.
Inventory: Neural Disruptor
Augment: Modular Cybernetic Frame
Skill: Hacking 2
Age: 49
Tagname: More Machine Than Man
Hometown: Perth[1]
Years of service: 6[2]

Archived

Sharp's technological make-up is in constant flux as he tinkers with, and replaces his augmentations. During his bounty hunting days, he preferred a more methodical, precise approach. Freed from the biological weaknesses like fatigue and hunger, he would slowly but relentlessly track down targets and eliminate them from a safe distance. And from down wind, since he hadn't yet worked out the finer details of his waste disposal subsystem.

Character

Some of Sharp's backstory is described in his datalog.

Quotes

At the start of a mission:

  • “C'mon meatsacks. Let's get this over with.”
  • “I'm faster, smarter, and better looking than any of you.”
  • “If we find any augmentations I want to get the first look.”
  • “Invigorating!”
  • “Your money doesn't buy you perfection of form.”
  • “Straight lines. Sharp edges. Hard corners.”

When rescued:

  • “I was just about to escape on my own.”

Final words:

  • “Pathetic scum. I'll come back for you.”
  • “How dare you touch perfection!”
  • “You are nothing. This changes nothing.”
  • “This is not the end. I've got backups.”

More of Sharp's dialogue can be found on the agent banters page.
