Letticia Van Buren: age 20 tech nerd with an IQ of around 190, zero maturity, and the social skills of a snake. Letticia has spent most of her conscious life sync’d into Net (the future, star-spanning version of our web – on steroids). She can control NetMind like no one else but lacks the maturity or common sense to use her skills wisely. She’s severely underweight, habitually forgets to bathe, and has a partially shaved head where the hair is still growing back thanks to the forcible removal of a sync link she’d had illegally embedded. But she LOVES money and the pretty, sparkly things that show it off. She’s the sister Strongarm is scheduled to marry to seal the treaty.
