Seung Bloodrose

Jeung was always the first kid into anything new on the scene. First to dye his hair, first to get a lip piercing, first to get into (and then out of, as others picked up on the trend) a series of increasingly bewilderingly-named Euro dance trends.

Cousin Seung was always the second. Always second to his more glamorous, more daring relative. Always.

The way Seung tells it, it was him that saw the opportunity lying there and came up with the idea of putting the Blood Roses together, but it was Jeung who lifted the idea and ran with it, his status on the Waterfront club scene ensuring that it was him and not Seung who would be at the centre of the organisation. Seung was relegated to his familiar role as lieutenant and back-up man to Cousin Jeung. And then even that wasn't secure for him, as the rise and rise of Charlotte Bloodrose began. Jeung and Seung were blood-kin - the kind of blood that the Blood Roses were supposed to be all about - and had known each other all their lives. Seung had been loyal to Jeung all that time and now Jeung was starting to take advice from that little piece of scheming Virginia Gardens new money trash?

Shunted further into the sidelines while Jeung - and now Charlotte too - basked in the limelight of the Blood Roses' growing achievements, Cousin Seung's resentment grew.

It was the Lindochem courier heist that brought everything to a head. $30 million in bearer bonds being transported in an armoured van from Silverfield to Havalynd, a sweetener to the company from another corporate suitor in the proposed sell-off of one of their developing world subsidiary operations. It was Tyron Sennet who first picked up rumours of the deal. It was Byron Bloodrose who hacked the courier company's systems and scoped out the details of the time and route. It was Michael Simeone who found a broker in Europe who guaranteed that he would be able to sell the bonds back to their owners for as much as thirty cents on the dollar. Jeung and Charlotte would be leading the heist crew, with everything timed and planned to the usual Blood Roses perfect precision.

It was a trap. Justin Teng's pet ex-military strike team were waiting for them at the ambush point. Byron had picked up whispers about the op on the Praetorians' communications net, and managed to get a last-second warning to Jeung and Charlotte. They got out in time. Four other Blood Roses, including a school friend of Charlotte's, didn't.

Charlotte got mad. Said Seung had tipped off the Praetorians, hoping they would do what he didn't have the guts to do himself. Jeung wasn't sure, but it was only a matter of time before Charlotte sweet-talked him round to having Seung killed. Michael Simeone interceded, vetoing the idea - no wasteful internal warfare, particularly since there was no proof against Seung . Tyron Sennet stepped in and decided that it would be better for all concerned if Seung wasn't around. He was moved over to Havalynd, and given what he had always wanted; a budget, and a remit to start up Blood Roses operations in a territory of his own.

Did Seung set Jeung and Charlotte up to be killed by the Praetorians? How much did Simeone and Sennet know about what was going on, and just how unhappy would they be to see the fiery and unpredictable Jeung replaced by the far more malleable and controllable Seung? To know the answers to these questions, watch the kind of moves Seung is starting to out together down there in Havalynd.

Biography: Balkan ORV

Balkan ORV

Balkan ORV (Off Road Vehicles) is the international name for the Petropavlovsk Transport Machine Construction Plant. Based in Kharkiv, Ukraine, the company is state-owned and designs armoured trucks for the Russian military. Historically, Balkan ORV was responsible for many of the well-known Soviet trucks, including the V-60 ORV series. In 1936, chief designer Nikolai Vasilev redesigned many of their vehicles after a fire in their main production facility destroyed most of their automotive production lines. However, the fire proved a blessing in disguise, providing an opportunity to modernise, and one of Vasilev's key new developments was the V8-34, one of the best Soviet Trucks of WWII and a model widely adopted in the following years. After the Soviet Union broke up, Balkan ORV became the main truck manufacturer in the Ukraine, but the continued decline of the military sector necessitated a process of civil diversification. In 1996, the company began to augment military contracts with larger trucks and fire engines created for civilian markets.

Media: Effigy

"Think style, think San Paro. Think wild side, think San Paro. Think San Paro, think Effigy." So ran the copy on the magazine's latest circulation-boosting ad campaign, and few people would disagree. 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 PAs 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 from his private office atop one of the Needles buildings, a spectacular open-plan minimalist space occupied by little more than a chair, a desk, a telephone and a computer terminal. Frank calls the shots, San Paro responds and the rest of the world rushes to try and catch up. He puts Jeung and Charlotte Bloodrose on the cover and declares that Crime is the New Sex. Two months later, LaRoche 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.

Effigy spawns imitations and bargain basement cheaper versions of itself in the same way as any top-range fashion brand. They come and go on the newsstands, shrivelling up and dying under the glare of Effigy's market domination. A few survive. Most notable of these is underground scene-zine, F'n'G, which takes Effigy's fixation with celebrity and street gang cool and strips them down to their basic components. F'n'G - Fashion'n'Guns.

2 Are you sure you are supposed to be here?

I've been checking into you, and can't see what you've done wrong to be sent to me. I usually only get all the rejects, but so far you seem capable enough.

Has my oh-so-beloved cousin Jeung actually made a mistake in sending you here, or am I supposed to think so, and he's really playing some deeper game?

I'll keep using you for the moment, and see which way the blade falls.

Seung

4 Please pass this on to your 'friends'

Are you one of cousin Jeung's spies? I'm still not sure. Maybe you could remind him that - no matter how many times he says otherwise - it was me who came up with the idea for the Blood Roses, and him who stole it.

Or maybe you work for Charlotte? Then tell her she's flattering herself if she thinks I'm the only Rose who hates her enough to have helped the Praetorians set up that ambush on her.

That should give her something to think about.

I'm still watching you. I'll find out the truth soon enough.

Seung

6 How's life with the gruesome twosome?

How are things at the Waterfront?

It's not that I'm forbidden to return. It's just that I have this concern that one of the Furies may accidentally shoot me in the head one night in the Rimbaud Room or the VIP lounge at Banshee.
Such tragic accidents do seem to befall those who displease Jeung and Charlotte.

Still, it's amusing following their antics from here. Does Charlotte still want to be the next Sofia? (I hear the demo tracks she made with Suji were terrible.) Does Jeung still chase after every magazine cover photo-shoot he can get?

They really do deserve each other.

Seung.

8 Opportunities

I know you don't work for Jeung. How? Let's say he isn't the only one with spies.

So he did make a mistake sending you to me. The same mistake he made in sending me here, too.

The Waterfront has its prizes, but it's nothing compared to Havalynd . The competition is fiercer, though. Ghetto-trash G-Kings on one side, Praetorians on the other.

(And what opposition does Jeung have, in comparison? A gang of frat-boys - who he still hasn't been able to deal with.)

I created the Blood Roses. The new organization I'm building here will be even stronger.

Seung.

10 The power behind the throne

Good news. I've been talking with Tyron Sennet, and we both share the same high opinion of your abilities.

If you know who Tyron is, then you also know about cousin Jeung's embarrassing little secret; that he doesn't actually control the Roses.

Poor Jeung. He might have stolen the idea for the Blood Roses from me, but he was never bright enough to hold onto it. Him and Charlotte are like movie stars; beautiful but dumb, reading out words from someone else's script, acting out their roles at someone else's direction.

Tyron Sennet is the director, but even he's not in charge. His employer, Michael Simeone, is the money bankrolling this whole production.
