Eric Geralt Surge (usually known by his shadowrunner name, Jazz) is a dwarven mechanic, originally from New Zealand, who moved to Australia when he was young. He is the only son of Victor "Power" Surge, an electrician from Christchurch, and Marie Taciturn. He was born on the 29th of March, 2043.
Backstory[edit | edit source]
After leaving high school at the age of 17, Jazz began a mechanic apprenticeship, while also being involved in various shadowruns with the little-known party, Wildcat V. With his mechanic knowledge, Jazz became the group's driver, not participating in much of the action (unless it turned into a car chase) and, as such, not receiving an equal share of the rewards. After almost seven years of shadowrunning, Jazz decided that the risk of incarceration (or usually, death) was not worth it and, so, left the party on good terms, becoming employed at Bronson McDwayne's Warehouse Emporium (then McDwayne & Son's Auto Services) where he still works as chief mechanic.
It wasn't long before a shadowrunner known only by his alias, "N30N", contacted Jazz via the warehouse, looking for very specific hardware and assistance in locating his missing brother. Since he needed the extra money, Jazz accepted the offer and together they attempted to band together a team, quickly locating Quicksilver after reference from Jake Dragonfly. The Hurricane and Jesus were met purely by chance, when Jazz, N30N and Quicksilver were out drinking at a bar.
