       oasis gardens, and domed palaces.

       (an incarnation of the Judge), locked in constant
       civil war with the heathens.
6      Choose Above or ask GM to choose

B. Choose a Name

Character names in this setting are Middle Eastern inspired. There's no requirement that the names be authentic ones that might be used in the real world, as long as they fit the general 'feel' or soundscape, they should be fine.

If you're having a little trouble coming up with a name or need a little inspiration, feel free to use one of the following generators for either a name straight up, or some ideas of character combinations that could recreate that feel for a name in this setting:

C. Choose your Character CONCEPT & Subconcept

If you don't own a copy of the Coriolis Core book, I can explain any of the concepts and subconcepts to you, and after you choose one I will provide you the relevant details.

◆◆ ARTIST Courtesan, Musician, Poet

This is determined by your Upbringing. It is halved if you've chosen to be a biosculpted Humanite, and can get some bonuses from your Concept/Subconcept choices.
