New Atlanta





Look at you, Hacker. A pathetic creature of meat and bone. Panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?"

SHODAN, to the Hacker, System Shock

The Hacker is the protagonist of System Shock and the character which the player controls.

Not much is know about the Hacker, other than that he, well, hacked into the Citadel orbital station, accessing extremely important information. He was caught and arrested, but was offered a deal: hack into the Citadel's onboard AI, SHODAN, in exchange for valuable cybernetic implants. He succeeds, and, as promised, is given surgery for these cybernetic enhancements.

As it turns out, the Hacker's modification of SHODAN removed her ethical constraints, resulting in her gaining self-awareness and going rogue. When he wakes up from a medically-induced coma, the entirety of Citadel Station is under SHODAN's control and, believing that she is a god, sets out to destroy the world using Citadel's orbital laser cannon.

Being one of the only men on Citadel not dead or under SHODAN's control, he sets out to shut her down and save the Earth from destruction.
