“Cyberpunk characters are survivors in a tough, grim world, faced with life-and-death choices. How they make these choices will have a lot to do with whether they end up as vicious animals roaming a ruined world or retain something of their basic humanity. Cyberpunk characters are the heroes of a bad situation, working to make it better (or at least survivable) whenever they can. Whether it takes committing crimes, defying authority or even outright revolution, the quintessential Cyberpunk character is a rebel with a cause.”
