Avaricious is the short story series following the late adventures of Rio, a new kind of fighter of the SnakeByte universe who is as dangerous as she is beautiful. Her mission is, and always has been, a simple one – to take up the mantle left behind by her father; to become the most efficient and deadly assassin in the world. And she’s close to the top too, aided by her information centre and loyal partner Sparky, however she is soon faced against her deadliest foe yet. A seemingly easy mission quickly spirals out of control when Rio is forced to confront the most powerful foe she has ever faced – one which is perhaps too much for even her… Follow along with Rio’s tale, featured only at our Patreon page!
Episode 2: Wham Bam!
Full Name: Unknown
Code Name: Rio
Bio: The only daughter of "Mr. Espionage", Rio serves as the field operative in her's and Sparky's partnership. Highly skilled in gymnastics, Soul Energy, and various forms of hand-to-hand combat; educated and trained by the best her father could provide, including himself - Rio has surpassed even her father's skills (though he'd never admit it).
Using the legend of the mysterious "Vipersnake" to her advantage, Rio uses everything at her disposal; the wealth of Gadgets provided by Sparky, the years of training by her father, her grasp of Soul Energy, her voluptuous body, her keen mind, and her other worldly abilities to dispense her own brand of justice upon the barbarians of the wastelands.
Full Name: Samuel Ryan
Code Name: Sparky
Bio: Extremely anti-social outside of his computers, and born without the use of his legs; Sparky devoted his time to his studies - particularly that of computer science, quickly mastering the complex mannerisms of both the hardware and software sides of the machine. Coming from a family of mechanics who were always keen to teach him; if something ran on electricity, chances were that Sparky could operate it, modify it, or manipulate it.
The problems of the outside world were none of his concern, online he was a god, and highly respected by his faceless peers. Back then, he would often test his abilities by taking control of the abandoned satellites that orbited the planet, hacking his way into the old government systems, or simply selling information that he gathered to random buyers across the internet – not that there were exactly a massive number of people to sell anyway.
Needless to say, his skills where highly sort after, but he made it a point that no-one would be able to find his actual location (he would find them instead). At least, that was the case up until two years ago. She was able to find him.
