Who is Rhest?
Short answer: Rhest is one-part Roy Fokker, one-part SNES version of Shadowrun, and one-part 90s comic book protagonist (doesn’t matter which one; they were mostly the same).
Long answer: Rhest (yes, that’s his real name) is a cybernetic mercenary, working for a staffing agency in Sacramento California in the undefined, cyberpunk future. He’s a hacker by trade, but spends most of his jobs using fists, guns, and wits to handle matters. He takes things lightly enough to never get overwhelmed, but seriously enough to never underestimate his opposition.
Rhest’s missions run the gamut, from package delivery to monster-slaying. While he deals with urban adventures mostly, he keeps running into the paranormal and other unexplained events.

One thought on “Rhest for the Wicked Short Film Update #3”
I liked this book a lot. I read it a few years ago, and it has really stuck with me. I’m excited that with the right support, I can see it as a movie, too!
