"It is I."
A multimedia icon, the Avatar parades down runways, ZG aisles, red carpets and wherever the cameras roll.
Some people value power, others credits. To Avatars, these goals are but means to an end: fame. Fame on a system-wide scale. To have their names on the lips of every member of humanity is their fondest dream, and Avatars will burn every ounce of talent and luck they can muster to launch their stardom and keep it burning like a supernova.
Avatars have a myriad ways of attracting attention to themselves. Some are singers and musicians, some are visual artists with coveted masterpieces in a variety of mediums, and some are experience designers whose works take place only within the sensoriums of their devoted followings. Some Avatars have talent, others are mere poseurs catching a ride on the latest trend. All of them know the show must go on, no matter what. This lends a determined, if sometimes reckless, element to their actions; if they're lucky, they receive the success and fame they desire.
Avatars come from any part of the Solar System, from the Grange to the heart of Earth's gardens. A loose union of artists' courtesy exists, enforced by favors during the best times and petty revenge at the worst. Some Avatars have managers and agents who by turns help and cheat their charges. Media consortiums provide an avenue for massive exposure at the price of draconian contracts that dictate all aspects of the Avatar's life, including mandatory body alteration and product placement in every conceivable way.
In the end, nothing matches the exhilaration of being in front of an audience and receiving their fans' adulation. All their effort pays off in the moment when they become godlike to their fans. Any price is worth the fame, but fame is fleeting, and Avatars must constantly work to keep their name in lights.
