Top Cat is the street name for an elven ex-Shadowrunner street samurai named Franklin Hartman who left the shadows to become an Urban Brawler named "Punch" for the Seattle Screamers. He was 41 year old  elf standing over six feet tall and possessed a stocky frame for an elf. He had fair skin and dark brown hair. After running for Aztechnology for a few years in Seattle, he quit shadowrunning after a botched run involving an Aztechnology data steal. He returned to Boston, acquired cosmetic surgery to cover his identity, then joined the international Urban Brawl circuit, where he and his lover Starlight became a star team called Punch and Judy.
