Medtech

Urban Combat-Paramedics


In the Urban Jungle, Medtechs are highly trained Paramedics that are trained, equipped, and ready to respond to virtually any medical emergency with the minimum of equipment. Often used by Corporate Black-Ops teams for on the spot medical assistance, the Medtechs are a vital part of any team with an eye on survival. Be them Corp, Government, or Edgerunner.

Sometimes jokingly referred to as "walking medical kits" by more combat-oriented people, they will rarely be laughing when the Medtech is patching up their multiple bullet wounds in a dark alley somewhere. Aided by medical technology that was virtually unheard of in the late 20th Century, the Medics of the modern era can perform near-mystical operations with supplies that can often be carried in a duffel bag. Pity the 'runner that tangles with a boostergang without a Medtech at their back.

"What, a bioweapon? Barbaric bastards. What the hell is this world coming to? Fine, bring him inside, but lock the door quick. Put him down, right there. Ok, that's good, now stop screaming and hand me the scanner dammit. No, it won't hurt. Iím going to run a test on the boy, analyze some spinal fluid. Why is that? Because unlike a Ripperdoc Iím not about to harvest organs on a random guess by some maniac waving a gun. Yes, I mean you. So either shut up, or put it down, or both. Do you want your 'homey' to live or not? Look, all I know is what they taught me at medical school: There are certain rules about life in the Combat Zone and rule number one is young people die. Rule number two is doctors can't change rule number one. But we try..."
