The manual contains a page discussing what it would be like for you if you were a first-rate mercenary, but then somebody came along and cloned you and the clones did all the work and nobody would pay for your services anymore.

Hard Nova is quite novel in that you can choose to play either a MALE or a FEMALE character. The plot is about the same either way, but some of the NPCs change.
