Edge of the Night
Back from psychoville, Aries is ready reclaim his humanity.
Aries is the living example of a man who has been through hell and come back to tell about it. Many years ago, he was a commander for the CIA, closely associated with the Gang of Four. After the fall of the United States, he ran covert operations in Central America for a while.
With an extensive military background, he surfaced in Night City years ago as a high priced solo. In 2010, after a particularly difficult mission which drove him over the edge, he opted for body plating, which in turn ripped away any vestige of humanity remaining. After several well publicized “weeks of terror” Ares was captured alive by the police in a spectacular firefight which cost the lives of over thirty police officers and civilians. Although vehemently protested against by both police and public, and only after much personality reconditioning, Ares was put in charge of the Night City Cyberpsycho (or ‘borg) Squad. His daring tactics and actions have earned him much notoriety, and his face appears almost nightly across many of the city’s screamsheets.
