The Criminals are one of the three Runner traditions in the Android Universe.
Criminals are in it for themselves. All runners are technically criminals, at least if you ask the corps, but these runners embrace it. They make self-interest an art form and may not care who gets hurt so long as they get ahead. They have a professional poise that Anarchs lack, but with a more direct purpose to their craft than the Shaper. Many Criminals engage in more traditional forms of crime as well, stealing data and money with equal gusto. Criminals are good at covering their tracks and employing a variety of dirty tricks to attack from an unexpected angle. For the career Criminal runner, no payday is worth unprepared risk, so their approaches to jobs favor caution, measured response, and at least 2-3 escape plans should things go pear-shaped.
