Each starting character will receive a unique advantage as a free gift from the GM. It will be something unique that fits the character concept and would otherwise be out of reach for a low-power starting character.
In most cases this will be a piece of equipment like a special cyberdeck, an elite rifle, or a piece of ’Ware. It could also be a Contact, a Spirit or Sprite, a Focus, or something else that makes sense for the character.
Keep this in mind when you create your character concept.
