Christian "z3r0_w0n" Thorne
Cocky Ithaeur Hacker
Christian “z3r0_w0n” Thorne, the man, the myth, and another want to be legend. Has all the raw talent you could ask for out of a super spy type recon recruit, except for the combat aptitude. And any sort of general serious attitude. Part genius, but mostly smart-ass, Christian is no stranger to trouble or catching an ass whooping. Definitely good at catching ass whoopings.
Christian came from a normal enough family. Lived in the suburbs on the outskirts of a bigger city. He evetually grew board of his normality and screamed for something different, something to call his own. Christian soon began to realize the more he tinkered around (without permission of course) with his father’s electronics that he shared his fathers aptitude for electronics. So much so that he soon begged his parents for a computer of his own and when he got one for his 10th birthday, he dove in head first.
After learning the basics of programming at age 12 he was writing his own batch code soon and complex programs by the end of the same year. It’s almost as if coding came to him as a second language. Sometimes as a kid he would even dream that that computers and various electronics were alive and he was able to communicate with them as if they were anthropoid, socially engineering them to do his bidding. He liked those dreams and the sense of control it gave him.
Christian soon became bored again after learning to code not only in machine code, but also in linux, windows, and ARM based arch code for smartphones. He had learned in’s and out’s of firewalls, trackers and sniffers, VPN’s and various encryptions. Now he needed something to apply it to. He was already bored in school, so he decided his first test would be a simple one, he was going to hack the school’s internal network from the computer lab at school while during lunch.
His first attack on a system outside his own proved to be child’s play. He was able to get in, create a backdoor, alter his grade and get out all in the span of about 3 min. The rest of the day was spent looking at the teachers to check for reactions. No one ever seemed any the wiser. Not only a quick turn around, but also undetected! This rush of adrenaline and display of intellectual dominance was what he had been looking for, and now he wanted more.
Word slowly spread that someone was able to change grades here and there undetected, and soon all the jocks and socialites were clamoring to find out who. Everyone seemed to have that one test that was make or break for their GPA and scholarship hopes for the future. Christian being himself, decided to find a way to remain anonymous and to make a little extra money along the way. Everyone would get what they would wanted.

A black site for hackers and script kiddies looking to find out more than they are supposed to know about various, sometimes powerful entities. For most, it’s inside information concerning Big Companies that put on a loving, caring, concerned for the conservation of humanity, spewing “We’re in this together!”. The very same that behind closed doors and out of the public view are making deals for illegal dump sites of toxic byproducts, or greasing the palms of the upper echelon of “The Man” to look the other way or suggest slaps on the wrists for what infringements have to be brought to light.
The best thing about information, and perhaps even ironic, is that it is a commodity. It’s market value enhanced by how much effort it’s owner tried to conceal it. Bought and sold by way of monetary value or favors. But this is just one aspect of the Parad0x. It also serves as chat rooms and forums for what most what consider conspiracy theorists or occasionally an outright nut job that tries to use chat rooms and forums to lobby that all the things that go bump in the night are real.
