My V (at least the one I’ll have on the first run) is going to be a woman born and raised among the nomads. Thanks to the nomad’s great educational system, she’s skilled enough in the ways of the techie, also knows a bit about getting the best side of people (or tries at least), has a very basic knowledge about guns, and is interested in expanding her netrunning horizons when she starts to do more serious merc work. And what better place to flex her edgerunning muscles than Night City?
However, the city has a even bigger incentive for her: knowing what it would feel like to settle, to have a place of her own, away from the old and tired Road. A place where also, if lucky (veeery lucky), she can find new and reliable people. Maybe friends, maybe even lovers.
But if that fails and she gets stabbed in the back, like pretty much everyone else in Night City, well, she’ll do her best to survive and fight back. Becoming an urban legend while at it doesn’t hurt
