Bio:

The dwarf never knew his birth parents but the kind woman who adopted him gave him the name Sancho and allowed him to take on her family name: Paz-Ocampo. She could not answer him when he asked where he came from or who his parents were. All she could say was that he was brought to her one day by children who were playing among the trash heaps where the elites discarded the toys that they had grown tired of.

His childhood was relatively happy and he had a lot of playmates. As far as dwarfs went, he was on the tall side so that he never wanted for friends. And like the children who had saved him, he went out of his way to make sure this playmates were safe, eventually extending this protectiveness to all children and to women, if only in gratitude to the woman who raised him as her own.

Perhaps this was why he decided to join the constabulary: he wanted to be able to protect women and children. It was while he was paying his dues on the force that he discovered what he could do and that he had another home aside from meatspace. At least in this place, the Matrix, size does not matter. A new home called for a new name. In meatspace he was Sancho Paz-Ocampo, lowly dwarf policeman. In the Matrix he was Taal, technomancer.
