Chung-hee's an adrenaline junkie. Went to the same school as Orlenz' and most of the others, where he was the school track star, but running track - even with all the San Paro school championship medals he racked up - just didn't give him the buzz he was looking for. Ditto with team games like soccer or football, where he would probably have given Orlenz' a serious run for his money for that quarterback spot. Chung-hee liked to be out there on his own, pushing himself to the limit, seeing just how close to the edge of the envelope he could get. Can't do that, and find out what you really need to know about yourself, when you've got the safety net of a teammate watching your back.
His parents' money, and the easygoing life in Prentiss, gave him what he needed to indulge his passions. On the beach, it was jet-skiing, scuba-diving and wind-surfing. Out on the water, on Nora's father's yacht, it was clay pigeon shooting and seagull target practice, when some of the Tigers started getting a taste for having a gun in their hands. On the city streets, it was drag-racing and hot-rodding with Chiza, which was fun enough, but Chung-hee preferred pushing himself to the limit using muscle and sweat, not chrome and rubber.
Out of the city, in the woods and mountains, it was hunting, orienteering and 'look, ma - no ropes and safety harnesses!' bare-hands rock climbing. When some of the other Tigers came along with him for the hunting, it was rifles with telescopic sights, and nights spent camping out in tents. When he's on his own, he uses a crossbow instead of a rifle, and travels light, using self-taught survival skills and sleeping with nothing between him and the stars. Once, dispensing with the crossbow, he tracked and wrestled to the ground a fully-grown stag, killing it with his bowie knife.
Back in the city, and it's free running, feeling like some kind of comic book superhero as he ghosts across the rooftops of San Paro, The Port Authority area of the Waterfront is just one big playground, the months he spent exploring its escape routes and access points turning out all along to have been pre-Tigers reconnaissance missions. One night, he caught a mugging gang in action against a couple of lost tourists in a street off Shoreside Boulevard. Going to the tourists' rescue - dropping down out of nowhere to start beating the hell out of the muggers - had been fun. After that, he started going out specifically looking for trouble; a regular rooftop vigilante.
When the Tigers asked him to join up, he didn't even have to think twice about it. He didn't care much about the City Security Act, the pros and cons of officially sanctioned vigilante action or the issues of the rights of communities to protect themselves, although the idea of kicking the crap out of faggoty-looking wimps like the Blood Roses sure had a certain appeal.
He just joined up because it sounded like fun; another chance to test his survival skills and see just how close to the edge these new challenges can take him.

Subject Good to see you! lol
Seen you in action out there you got some nice moves!
What? You didnt know I was out there with you? Thats the idea. Crims dont see me, you dont see me. No-one does.
Im like a ghost, or one of those comic book superheroes. Rooftop avenger, thats me! Scope out the action, drop down on top of them, and POW!
See you - but you wont see me :-)
You hear about what happened to Chiza?
You hear about that extreme stuff that went on over at Yard Stretch the other day? Some crazy shit! Soon as I heard about it, I knew Chiza had to be there those dumb fucks in that pick-up definitely picked the wrong girl to play chicken with that day.
Me, I missed the whole thing. Was checking out some new routes across the rooftops round Little Fin crims are starting to wise up to my usual routes. Beat the shit out of a couple of muggers prowling around looking for lost tourists - just a quick snack to keep me in the mood. Yum yum.
Save it for the locker room dude.
Skipped out early on one of Byeong Lees pep talks man, but that old guy can talk!
Got an admission to make. Do you know much about the City Security Act "time to take back our city!" stuff that Byeongs always talking about? I dont. Dont much care, either.
Orlenz' asks me to help out Im there, cos were buddies. Orlenz' asks me if I want to kick crim ass and Im DEFINITELY there, cos that kind of trash really needs to be taught some respect.
But save me the lectures and team talks. Thats just not what its about.
You got a crossbow I can borrow?
You ever get out the city much? I used to head out of town all the time. Head for the wild blue yonder. Go camping by myself orienteering in the woods, bare hands rock-climbing in the mountains. No tents, or weak shit like that survival skills, all the way.
Take my hunting stuff with me too. No rifles. Crossbow only. Killed a full-grown stag once with my knife, came in upwind of it and wrestled it right to the ground.
Used to do all that. Not so much anymore. Now I got the Waterfront for a hunting ground and crims to try my skills out on.
Hey there teamy ;-)
Some rush out there, right? Dude, I would PAY to do this, and now Darryls big sis has got all these sponsorship deals set up so that we get PAID for it?
Sucks to be us, huh? :-)
You believe I nearly passed on the Tigers when Orlenz' first told me what they was planning? Told him I wasnt much into team games I was always the track star at high school. He said that was okay I could run solo if I wanted.
Cool guy, Orlenz'. Hes got something special going on with the Tigers.

Subject Media: San Paro Standard
The last of the city's old-style heavyweight daily newspapers. Its circulation is a shadow of what it once was before TV, radio, the internet and city's ever-growing rates of adult illiteracy cut it down to its present size, but Standard is still regarded - and, more importantly, regards itself - as the voice of civilized San Paro. Generally liberal, its editorial policy has always favoured the Social Progressive Party, and John Derren remains enshrined in the paper's mindset as the city's greatest mayor. Views on his daughter, however, are sharply divided among the paper's op-ed columnists. Star writer at the Standard is prizewinning investigative reporter Mikko Wong, who generally works the crime beat. Her editors love her investigative pieces on the city's street gang culture or corruption in the SPPD, but are less keen when she turns her attention to corporate crime, and especially the links between the corporate and some of the city's most notorious criminal organizations. Ad revenue dries up real fast, they suspect, when the names of your biggest clients appear splashed across your front page in a story linking them with illicit arms sales to gangs of violent criminals.
Wong's diligence for the truth, punchy prose style and shoot-from-the-hip attitude have won her many fans, not least at Effigy magazine, who have left an open and very lucrative job offer on the table to come aboard as one of their chief feature writers. So far, she isn't biting. Friends, worried about the threats that have already been made against her because of her investigations for the Standard, tell her she should take it. Writers who interview celebrities or cover movie premiers don't have to check under their car every morning for bombs, or make sure they don't drive home by the same route every night.
Biography: Joker Gunworks
Joker (Joker 45's / Joker Gunworks)
San Paro's most notorious home-grown weapon manufacturer and champion of the right to bear arms. According to the company, Joker Gunworks was formed in 1977 to meet increasing demand from consumers. Famous for their tag line - "Who's laughing now?" over half of the gun homicides between April 2005 and September 2007 in San Paro were committed with their powerful and compact handguns. The SPPD, have lobbied unsuccessfully to have their Midtown works shut down, or its output more carefully licensed, but Joker continues to avoid censure, leading to suspicions of corporate or governmental interference. Many of their weapons reaching the streets cannot be accounted for through legitimate sales.
