I've added the persona of a cautious activist under an orpressive regime:

## Habib Itamar, Dissident, 24

Habib is a political activist under an orpressive regime which uses
heavy internet filtering. From a friend, he received a USB stick with
a bootable Tails Live System. He does not know how Tor works and what
he has to keep in mind when using it, and will not connect the system
to the internet without knowing more about this (he can only access
the version of the website we will distribute with Tails).
