In Bias Cut, Sergio Sarmento is an Angolan fashion designer living in Paris. Sergio used to work for Kip Caprini and was friends with Joelle Sutton.
In Lonely Satellite, he’s a street artist living in an abandoned skyscraper in New York City, who takes Laurie Sparks under his wing. A mural painted on the wall of Sergio's makeshift home appears to depict the New York skyline as it would have existed had the 1984 nuclear attack never taken place--i.e. the skyline that exists in the Bias Cut timeline.
