Johnny Silverhand, originally born as Robert John Linder, is a very well-known and influential artist in America. An ex-US military veteran who defined the rockerboy movement to what it is today. He was the lead singer of the band Samurai and one of the most prominent figures that fought against the corrupted US government and the Megacorporations. Johnny concentrates most of his anger to the Arasaka Corporation, due to them kidnapping his girlfriend leading to her supposed death, which may or may not have been his fault. He’s charismatic and quite the charmer. However Johnny is also known to be irrational, impulsive, and a manipulator often being described as a terrorist.
Johnny has a temper and seems to always be on edge, mostly due to his history in the Central American Conflict. His dedication and ambitions are what keep him going, but at the end of the day he doesn’t care much for the people around him as long as they are used to accomplish his goals.
In 2077, Johnny is still as ambitious as ever. He has his own agenda he wants to accomplish and plans to use V to get to it, it’s up to them whether Johnny is to be trusted or not.
