Route of the Kami
Dez's Street Doctor connection
Doc makes his living in a small building in an alleyway in Shanghai, giving medical treatment, surgery, and bio/cyberware upgrades outside the scrutiny of the official medical system. While his usual customers consist of Shadowrunners and gang members seeking secretive or illegal modification, he does have a reputation for helping out the poor and the young with simple surgery and pharmaceuticals.
Dez ran into Doc early in his living in Shanghai, stumbling upon his office after a bar fight. The two became friends as Dez continued to show up bearing injuries and tales from his running, and the two developed a gradual trust. Now, Doc is the closest friend Dez has, and the two often go out for drinks and chat about sports and work.
