Mr. Johnson is a term, the anonymous corporate employers of Shadowrunners call themselves. – It is a nickname like the names used by runners to concale his true identity and the one of the corporation he works for. It’s a game which is played on both sides of the table and any runner worth his credstick knows the (unwritten) rules.

While in North America “Mr.” or “Mrs. Johnson” is the common name, other names are used in other parts of the Sixth World:

  • Herr/Frau Schmidt – in Germany – i.e. the Allied German States
  • Herr Keller – in Switzerland
  • Herr or Doctor Nowak – in Austria
  • Mr. Smith or Mr. Jones – in Great Britain
  • Mr. Tanaka – in Japan
  • Mr. Wu – in China (including Hong Kong)

  • Monsieur Dupont – in France
  • Pan Jonáa – in Czech Republic
  • (Herr) Kowalski – in Poland
  • Meneer Janssen – in the United Netherlands (VNL)
  • Senor Fernandéz – in Spain

A special case are the Johnsons of the German Saeder-Krupp Corporation, because they call themselves “Herr Brackhaus”. – Sometimes this may even be Lofwyr himself in metahuman form…
