Suji

Suji comes out of the Tokyo youth tribe scene, where music, clubbing, fashion, technology capitalism and crime all run together into one amorphous culture-shifting mass. The youth cult chroniclers try to hang convenient names on it - Nu-Bushido, Ronin Style - but the scene's rules change faster than anyone outside of it can possibly keep track of, and only the kids on the inside can really tell you what it's all about.

Suji was a DJ on the scene, making a name for himself in the clubs of the Shibuya district and then hanging out after-hours on the fringes of the bushido gangster scene that revolved around there. Suji liked gangsters, and gangsters liked Suji. They fed off each other, one providing the other with club scene kudos, and the other reciprocating with the kind of criminal chic that fed into the sounds Suji played.

The club scene is international, and Suji was one of the Ronin Style sound's chief exponents. A fawning profile piece in Effigy magazine led to guest spot invites at from some of San Paro's hottest clubs. Suji liked San Paro, and decided to hang around, but the big money party scene happening down in Havalynd bored him. What he was looking for was only to be found at street level. The Havalynd party circuit pays well, but on his nights off he was hanging out at the nascent warehouse scene down at the Waterfront.

It's there he hooks up with Jeung Bloodrose. Jeung knows the Shibuya club scene. Jeung digs Ronin Style, and lifted plenty of ideas from it - the look, the technology, the attitude - when he created the Blood Roses. Suji digs what Jeung's trying to do, and comes onboard, acting as part style advisor, part partner-in-crime. He quits the residency gigs in Havalynd and opens up his own club there - Gaijin - with Jeung bankrolling it as a silent and secret partner. Gaijin is part listening post, and part recruiting station, as well as being a profitable concern in its own right. Havalynd is enemy territory - G-Kings territory - but the club gives the Blood Roses a secret foothold in the place, and - Jeung hopes - a base for them to operate from as they start expanding out into the rest of the city. In the meantime, Suji keeps an eye on who's coming through the door. Lots of people want to be Ronin Style gangsters. Suji sorts out the wheat from the chaff. Likely candidates are tested, and the best of them are sent down to the Waterfront for Jeung's approval or are held in reserve in Havalynd; foot soldiers, for the intended expansion plan.

Neither Michael Simeone nor Tyron Sennet known anything about Jeung's involvement with Gaijin or the covert recruitment policy that Jeung and Suji are operating there.

Or, at least, that's maybe what Simeone and Sennet want Jeung to think.

Biography: The Media

As more than one commentator has suggested, perhaps San Paro gets the media it deserves. The city and its media - TV, radio, press & magazines, internet - need each other. The city feeds the media with the spectacle it craves - glamorous and exotic San Paro; violent and dangerous San Paro - and the media projects this excess back to it. San Paro gets the media it deserves, but it also gets the media it wants.

Top of the heap, of course, is Effigy magazine, self-declared arbiter of everything that is fashionable, desirable and dream-attainable in San Paro. For many outsiders, Effigy magazine - its glamour, its chic amorality, its obsession with celebrity status no matter how it's achieved, its ruthless drive to find the new zeitgeist, and its seemingly effortless ability to stay on top of it ahead of all the competition - is San Paro. The competition tell each other its had its day... and then go on slavishly imitating it, celebrities claim to despise it... and then scream down cellphones at PRs who have to tell them they've bumped off this month's cover spot by a younger and hotter new star. Cultural commentators condemn its shallowness and the celebrity-at-any-cost message it sends out to a status-obsessed population... and then send their secretaries out to the newsstand to buy the latest issue.

Editors come and go, burned out by the magazine's relentless pursuit of the latest cutting edge cool, but publisher and Editor-in-chief Darius Frank goes on forever, deciding what's in and what's out. He puts Jeung and Charlotte Bloodrose on the cover and declares that Crime is the New Sex. Two months later, LaRocha is Effigy cover boy, all muscle tone, cool-looking Special Forces tattoos and eyes full of cold and deadly intent. Praetorian recruitment figures spike off the chart, everyone debates the cover-line claim that Enforcement is everything, and Darius Frank is already moving on to the next cover star, the next trend to unearth and make his own.

The 'Age of Glam-Anarchy' - as an Effigy cover feature once proclaimed San Parians to now be living in - has been good to the magazine, expanding the range of celebrities and fashion role models necessary to feed its readership's insatiable demand for novelty and variety. Now, anyone can be a celebrity, if they have what it takes to rise above the common herd and get themselves noticed. Sport, fashion, music, film & TV, politics - these were all the traditional ways to do this. Now, in Darius Frank's Age of Glam-Anarchy, crime and street violence is just another way of getting noticed. Get noticed enough, draw enough publicity to yourself and show something of that spark of originality and zeitgeist momentum that everyone craves, and Effigy may come calling. Your moment in the sun might be brief, but it's still more than millions of your fellow San Parians will ever achieve.

The other media outlets trail in Effigy's wake, frequently providing the raw material from which it creates new San Paro icons. The Bankside Voice, former champion of the San Paro counter-culture, now throws its weight behind the CSA vigilantes, arguing that, in a society as corrupt and as lawless as San Paro's, the new radical counter-culture movement can only be a law enforcement one. Rev, secretly funded by Luke Waskawi as a means of propagating the Asylum manifesto, walks the other side of the street, being in everything but name the magazine for San Paro's criminal organisations.

It's on the city's TV and web outlets, however, that the action really heats up. Nantego News Network (aka3N ) is the city's largest 24-hour news channel, becoming increasingly reliant on an audience-pleasing diet of high speed car chases, gunfights and hostage dramas captured live on the city streets by its roving news teams. In terms of sensationalist crime glamourisation, though, it's still playing catch-up with younger and more aggressive competitor 211 in Progress, which is dedicated solely to crime coverage. 2iP cameras are everywhere, lapping up the action, making overnight stars of Enforcers and Criminals alike, and there are rumours of the channel signing some of the most popular gunslingers on both sides up to exclusivity contracts that forbid them to work with other networks. Not far behind these rumours are the other, darker, ones; of collusion between the channel and its favourite subjects. Criminals set up crimes specifically for the cameras. Or the channel passes along tips from criminal contacts to its favoured star Enforcers, while ensuring it's there to get the best footage when the Enforcers spring a lethal ambush on yet another group of targets.

Or so the rumours go.

Elsewhere, on i-Net (aka San Paro i-Net, or SPiN) and San Paro Public Cable, everyone gets - and many take - their shot at instant media fame. Faction-orientated blogs, websites and propaganda channels sprout like weeds all over both networks. N-Force, Justice Now, Street Power, Fightback, Counterstrike and Judgement Day are just a couple of the pro-Enforcer sites and channels out there. Opposing them, are the pro-Criminal ones, some of them associated with specific and well-known gangs, others are more individual efforts, or just generally in favour of anything related to Criminal-inspired violence and mayhem - the Blood Palace, Once We Were Kings, No Rulez, Takedown, @sylum, We Own The Streets, Street Rip.

In between the Faction-orientated channels and sites come the neutrals - Crossfire, Bullet Time, Collateral Damage, Chaos Theory - which chronicle the daily violent goings-on in the city. Ordinary citizens trying to make sense of what their city has become, violence groupies watching from the sidelines like enthusiastic sports fans, wannabe Mikko Wongs hoping their amateur journalism efforts might get picked up by one of the major media outlets, or just lone voices shouting out for attention. They're all there.

Everyone's online. Everyone gets access to the city's wangled warren of public cable channels. Everyone wants to be heard and noticed. Everyone wants their moment to stand out from the crowd.

Biography: Dolton

Dolton

Dolton has been a mainstay of the American auto industry for decades, producing an extensive range of mainstream cars and trucks. While the company was one of the first major automobile manufacturers in the world, it has not always managed to stay at the forefront of automobile design. Long seen as untouchable in the automobile industry, by the late 1970s Dolton was consistently behind foreign competitors in sales, being seen as old fashioned and 'out of touch'. However, changes in market perception in the mid 1980s and inroads into new commercial markets led to a dramatic revitalization of Dolton's line-up - with the company once again bringing groundbreaking automobiles to the American market, in terms of luxury, reliability and overall comfort. By 2006, Dolton's assembly lines were using the largest amount of cutting-edge automaking technology in America and the company was catapulted to record profits. Today, Dolton has reclaimed its position as one of the world's largest exporters of automobiles.

Good to have you with us. Sorry if you've been looking for me recently and I haven't been around. Gaijin has become a big success in Havalynd, and my financial backers and I have been in discussions about opening up another club elsewhere in the city.

And what's good for Gaijin is good for the Blood Roses, although it's best I don't say too much about that at present.

Regards,

Suji.

4 Looks like we have both been busy. Mad times.

Back in Tokyo, people think I am crazy for coming here. How can I explain it to them?

A city where you can become a celebrity by robbing burger restaurants. Where you can watch a cable TV show featuring a masked man live-dissecting stray animals. Where you can buy a pack of hollow-point ammunition at any corner store.

Where there are more gun battles happening in the streets than there are TV news crews to cover them all. Where criminals, and not fashion models or rock stars, are the style icons to follow.

How could anyone know all this, and not want to come here?

S.

6 Wife swap?

What do you think of Havalynd? I make my money here, but it's the Waterfront scene I belong to. Or put it this way; Havalynd is my boring but rich heiress wife, and Waterfront is the crazy little groupie I screw as often as I can. Wakarimasu? ^_^

If you don't already, you should go down to the Waterfront sometime. I'm DJing the wrap party at the Rimbaud Room for the new Crispin Q commercial for Jean Zasou. Most of the Roses - or all the ones that matter, anyway - will be there.

Feel free to drop by.

S.

8 Good times!

Hey,

Didn't see you at the party, but I heard you were there. Crispin was asking me if I would do a Ronin-style soundtrack for his next movie, but he probably forgot all about it as soon as the absinthe wore off.

Jeung was asking about you. That's either a good or a bad thing, depending on who you talk to. I get on with Jeung very well, although I appreciate he is sometimes difficult to deal with.

He's at his worst in combination with Charlotte. That's love, perhaps.

S.

10 Confidential

You probably know by now that Jeung is my silent business partner in Gaijin. Since you've been so useful, there's no need to keep you in the dark any longer.

The club makes good money, but that's not its true purpose. We're recruiting new Blood Roses through it, potential new gang members who match the style and attitude we're looking for.

And Blood Roses loyal first and foremost to Jeung, and not those above him. Blood Roses such as you, I hope.

Keep this to yourself. Things are definitely happening, but all in the background. We'll let you know if we ever need you to help on this.

Gambatte,

S.
