Parameds see metahumanity at its worst: spilling its guts
out on the sidewalk, wetting its pants in a public drunken stupor,
or dying alone in an apartment full of hungry cats. Their
job is to help people in need, but their high-stress, understaffed,
mandatory-overtime work conditions stretch their empathy to
its limits, especially when each call puts them face to face with
a scene of violence, agony, or death. When they’re not popping
stims to stay awake on a triple-shift, they’re drowning their
memories away with alcohol or brainburners, hoping to harden
themselves for the next night of pain and gore.
Having a paramed contact can be quite handy when you
need some bullet-holes sewn up no questions asked or need to
acquire some hard-to-find pharmaceuticals, but don’t expect
much in the way of sympathy, as the paramed spent the last of
his some time ago. And don’t expect him to risk his life to save
yours—that’s what DocWagon contracts are for. If you’ve got
the time to listen to the paramed’s tales of woe or the means to
provide them with a strong distraction from their daily lives,
then you’ll make yourself a solid contact.
