T H E C A S T:
Vendetta Violent: This Seattle rocker is many things. Rockstar, Shaman to the great Dragonslayer spirit & even an occasional runner of the shadows. She has released two albums under the synthcore shadowband ‘Riot Blue’ (the first being self titled and the second being the acclaimed Silver Sanity) and the recently released album ‘Freefall’ under her solo rock act, Mana Burns. Her successful Shadowblog paved the way for this Shadowcast and has previously done much to promote the artists underground status while keeping an incredibly close connection to her fanbase.
‘Monday Trip’ Dubois: Until recently, Trip was working out of New Orleans with the radical freedom fighting podcast ‘The Sightless Truths’. Following the assassination of the shows host, however, Trip reached out to Vendetta Violent with the proposition of transitioning her powerful Shadowblog to an audio format. Moving back to Seattle, this anarchist producer has worked closely with the rockstar and even has shown some interest in running his own segment on Violent Life.
Toledo: A Detroit native with an Ohio name, Toledo is the antagonistic weapons expert, career shadowrunning professional of the group. He’s been around for awhile and is an indispensable asset to the team. Bioware and combat enhancing drugs make Toledo a force to be reckoned with.
Frightnight: Ork Decker and slasher flick aficionado, Frightnight is the brains of the Emerald City Valkyries and quickly growing into a friend of Vendetta Violent. She can commonly be found arguing with her teammate and nemisis, Toledo.
Glass Lucy: Glass Lucy is one of the hardest troll women to ever come out of the Hong Kong sprawl. Getting her name from a stunt where she crashed through a skylight before killing an entire triad kill squad, Lucy is a physical adept and force of nature, the strong arm of the Valkyries.
Battalion: Shot and killed on a run where she was to escort Vendetta Violent to LA, this Ex-Lone Star Rigger was overwatch and Calvary to the Valkyries. It has yet to be seen who will replace her.
Protagonist: The so far nameless protagonist that you find yourself experiencing the shadows of the Redmond Barrens with. The Protagonist is stoic, loyal and has a gift of being somewhat overlooked (or even unnoticed).
Swick: A street girl from Redmond, Swick is pretty and headstrong. She gets by on using her cunning along side her looks though she’s never had a knack for lying. Swick is the on and off again love intrest of the Protagonist. She first appears in Redmond Born #1
Jiffy Todd: A drug dealer and former ganger, Jiffy Todd is a well connected cockroach of an ork on the streets of Redmond, preying upon the sadness and despair of it’s residents. He first appears in Redmond Born #1
Doc Benny: The Laughing Surgeon, proprietor of the Stitch-Fix. The unstable Doc Benny is rumored to have been a talented and successful surgeon before something made him snap and develop a nasty case of the giggles. Benny first appears in Redmond Born #2
Slidestep: Veteran Street Samurai and ally to the Den, first encountered in Redmond Born #3 helping the Protagonist escape the gangers from the Stitch-Fix.
Cordelia: Leader of the Den’s neighborhood watch (and thus, the highest authority currently in The Den district of Redmond) Cordelia makes her first appearance in Redmond Born #4 after Slidestep brings the Protagonist to The Brickhouse.

Damian: Has been an avid fan of the Shadowrun universe for over 20 years. Influenced and encouraged by listening to such podcasts as The Arcology Podcast and Neo-Anarchist Podcast, Damian decided to jump headfirst into Podcasting with reckless abandon and thus Violent Life was born. Damian is the narrator for Redmond Born in addition to hosting the informational segments on the Violent Life Podcast.
Amanda: Amanda C. Milstein is the voice of Vendetta Violent during the in-character segments on Violent Life (as well as many other misc. characters!). While new to voice acting Amanda approached this role with an enthusiastic vigor and a natural talent for doing what she does. She immediately took hold of the character, lending her voice to the characters rebellious spirit. While the Violent Life Podcast is an ongoing commitment and pleasure, Amanda is absolutely open to take on other work and can be contacted via email or through her website for other voice and gaming projects.
