What does it mean to create a new character in SFZero? Your character looks exactly the same as you. Your character will have all the same skills and attributes as you, and even the same memories and feelings. "Isn't my character, just, well, /me/?" Good question.
Your character has several important things that you do not have. First, your character has a Score. Its Score is a barometer of its progress.
You may find that your own willingness to interact with the city in new ways varies linearly with relation to your Score.
Second, your character will become affiliated with groups that you may or may not be affiliated with yourself. As you play SFZero, your decisions will determine which groups you are affiliated with.
Last, and most importantly, your character is able to do things that you may be unable or unwilling to do yourself. Your character doesn't recognize the artificial boundaries that prevent non-players from doing what they want to do. Things like fear, lethargy and the police don't deter your character from achieving his or her goals.
Your character never misses a connection - it will get you Score.
