Mirri Kent

Darryl Kent's older sister, born and bred in Prentiss, but now something big in PR down in Havalynd. Mirri is a big Mayor Derren fan - bold new ideas, fresh forward-thinking policies, and the guts to see 'em through . Mirri supports the City Security Act 100% - putting power back into the hands of the people; isn't that what democracy's supposed to be all about? - and her agency worked on the ad campaign that played such a big part in getting the act through the city council. ("It's still your city, San Paro. Time to start taking it back." Mirri wrote that line, now familiar to San Paroites from the thousands of times they've heard in on TV, radio or the internet or seen it on billboards or subway ads. And damn proud she is of it too, especially when it earned her a promotion to junior partner and a corner office overlooking Merchant Park.)

Of course, it's different when you find out that your kid brother's one of those vigilante yahoos running around out there with a gun and a piece of paper from City Hall that says it's okay for him to go up against heavily-armed professional criminals. That stuff's fine for glorified rentacops like the Praetorians - Mirri's agency lost out on the big PR contract for Justin Teng's brainchild, so she's been down on the Praetorians ever since - or kids living out in shitholes like Montebank or the Sprawl, where they've not got much to lose in the first place, but decent middle-class kids from places like Prentiss are worth more.

Mirri soon changed her tune when she met up with the Tigers. These kids were motivated, well equipped and - thanks to the old cop Lee - they actually seemed to know what they were doing. Mirri liked just about everything he saw in the Tigers. And what she mostly saw was one big marketing opportunity.

With the passing of the City Security Act, the big buzz round the cocktail bars and clubs in Havalynd was that people power was going to be the next big thing, but, unless you were already into private security or arms manufacturing, no-one could figure out how to tap into this new zeitgeist and make some serious money. Mirri could. She knows stylists and fashion designers. She knows people in marketing and product placement. She figures she gives them the Tigers, and then it's Christmas for everyone.

Flick through the channels on your TV and count how many shows feature a bunch of good-looking clean-cut teenage kids from good homes. The Tigers look like they've walked straight out of one of those shows - their leader's a star quarterback, for christ's sake - but instead of sitting around whining about their spoiled pampered lives like the kids on those shows, they're out there putting their lives on the line to make their city a better place. Who couldn't get behind an idea like that?

Mirri sees every kid in San Paro wanting to wear a Prentiss Tigers baseball jacket, featuring the gang logo that she's already had designed and focus group-tested. She sees companies queuing up to get good-looking kids like Orlenze' to endorse their products. She sees an Akiko X brand of perfume ('Katana' is the name she and the marketing team are favouring at the moment). She sees a natural-born clothes horse like Nora fronting a whole line of high fashion Tigers clothing.

Of course, selling all this to the Tigers was a problem. The old cop was naturally hostile, but the kids got it right off. The old man came round, though, especially when Mirri offered to be their point man in Havalynd, cultivating contacts in her Rolodex to bring in sponsorship money from some of the corporates. The couple of contacts she'd shown the dummied-up prep material to were clamouring to know more. She also knew people at City Hall, enough to find shortcuts through all the red tape bullshit that still came with the City Security Act.

So now Mirri is the Tigers' biggest fan, on 20% of everything she brings their way. She's just waiting for the action to start happening, for the Tigers to start making a name for themselves, and then the phone will really start ringing.

Biography: Midtown

Midtown is where it all gets messy. A slop-tray of immigrant cultures mixing and swirling in the crowded streets. This is where rich and poor collide, an access point for the upwardly mobile, and a rainbow diversion for the street bourgeoisie. The money here is wild; it plays dirty and it plays 'til dawn.

On the surface the whole district is a chaos of factions and fire fights, but underpinning this is a feudal map of courts and courtiers which can surprise with its sophistication. Diplomacy is the last thing you'd expect to find in these violent streets, but it's here, born from a patchwork history of co-habitation and co-dependence between different communities united in nothing else but the need to survive.

Up until the mid-nineteenth century, San Paro was still relatively compact, a colourful trading hub with a strong maritime tradition. It was only with the arrival of the machine age that the city started to distend and mutate and take on a darker shade. Factories rose on the banks of the Makoda, breathing in the rural populations from the agricultural heartlands, and exhaling gouts of foul smoke and ash. San Paro increased in size, fed by a burgeoning rail network and a constant supply of steamers and schooners bringing folks of all points and persuasions. The population spilled out across the plain. The new people had no money; they brought their strength and their hope, crammed into the cheap housing spreading like a stain south of the city centre.

By the early twentieth century, Midtown was soaking up some of the new middle-class overspill, families who could afford to live comparatively well, but for whom the Concession was a stretch too far. It was then that the old brownstones were built, the smart terrace apartments north of Derrick. The new money had a civilizing effect; there were restaurants and delicatessens, a cinema and the grandiose Vincenzi Opera House. The northern quarter is still a decent place to live, but it's duller now; the shine has worn off. Some of the community businesses remain, but many have folded or moved away, tired of paying protection, or victim to a death by slow bleeding.

South of Derrick, the atmosphere changes. There are conspicuous glints of gun-metal. No-one's smiling. The blocks south past Westin and Green are traditional gang turf. This is where the Rain started out all those years previous, hustling in the filthy backstreets, where the poor folks are crowded into battery blocks, piled on top of each other 'til they're ready to kill just for the quiet of it.

At the heart of the district lies the electronics enclave of Denkiba. By day it looks like any other ramshackle pitch of huckster alleys and emporia. Traders cast their nets, cheap parts spill out onto the street. Come sundown the place lights up like a fairground ride. Where there were rusted old shutters, there are suddenly arcades, and the streets emerge from afternoon grey in a kaleidoscope of bleeping colours.

Running south-east from there is what many consider Midtown proper. Green Street is a melting pot of hipsters, scumbags, anarchists, a weft to the warp of the law-abiding masses. Ostensibly controlled by Red Rain, but there's too much human flotsam running through here for them to police, so they content themselves with skimming the trade. A man can get anything he wants on these streets, if he knows the right people.

Continue east and you hit Bankside, site of the old hospital, but more famous for its shopping and for San Paro's largest concentration of nightclubs. Satori Strip is just another place to get shot, a grey stretch of cheap retail, fraying at the edges. But like Denkiba, it comes to life as the light drains from the evening sky. Its edges are scratched out in neon; the peacocks strut and the street hums with the sprung tension of a thousand cocked and loaded firearms.

There's still money in Midtown. The blocks overlooking Rotunda still carry some of the boho chic they did when the rich university kids were getting political back in '68. Outposts of suburban comfort lurk unexpectedly, away from the main drag, such as the Birches out by the campus or Letsby Court in Pocket. But even on the good streets, where the weapons are mostly concealed, there are protocols, and if you want to live, you'll learn to respect them.

Biography: Patriot Auto-Fabrication

Patriot Auto-fabrication

Segomo Defence Technologies (SDT) was as a defence contractor who diversified in the early eighties in an effort to shield themselves from the cyclical aerospace and defence markets. In 1981, SDT made various acquisitions and several new divisions were established as the company moved into securities, civilian aeronautics (designing corporate jets), and telecommunications. They also purchased the Patriot Motor Group. Patriot Auto-fabrication had been virtually hand-building Patriot muscle-cars since 1955 in Austin, Texas, combining very powerful engines with relative affordability, though fabrication was crude and lacking refinement. In a radical departure from anything Patriot had ever done before, SDT redesigned the vehicle from the ground up, applying much of their military-grade engineering to the vehicle's design. Their modifications, including a re-vamp of the Patriot "V11-Flashfire" engine, turned the Patriot from an enthusiast's collectable to a mainstream performance pinup. Recent generations of the Patriot, are widely seen as being a revolution of muscle-car design and a real competitor in world markets.

2 You know Darryl, right?

Hi there.

You met my kid brother Darryl? He's based in Havalynd too, doing number-crunching with the Praetorians, but he grew up with Orlenz' and the others and is still 100% Tigers.

Too bad what happened to him - the Blood Roses came after him, killed his girlfriend and left him for dead. It's a really sad story - I know a guy at Wilk-Pastor Media who says it would make great Movie of the Week, but kid brother won't play ball.

Too bad. Nothing like tugging on the heartstrings to raise your profile some.

Stay in touch!

Mirri Kent

4 Please allow me to introduce myself.

Hi there.

Really great meeting you, and I just want to say we really appreciate all you're doing out there. I think it's great that cool, motivated people like you are taking direct action and sorting out this city's problems.

You're doing your thing out there on the street, and I'm doing mine too - raising awareness of the Prentiss Tigers name and generating sponsorship income to help fund Tiger operations.

Together, we're both really doing our part for the war on crime!

Mirri

6 Profile update.

Hey, Mirri here!

Great news: starting to get kind of a buzz going about you. Whatever you're doing out there, just keep doing it, and I'll do my part here - hitting up friendlies in the media (got a great contact at 2iP who just loves Tiger stories) and busting my ass to get your name and image into wider circulation.

Just about to go into a meeting with some perfume company people - they want to do an Akiko X scent! - so gotta run.

Love working with you!

Mirri

8 Future marketing ideas.

Really sorry that thing I set up didn't work out, and they decided to go another way on it.

Don't worry about it - they're assholes anyway, and we can do better than their shitty offer. Already got feelers out in other directions, and waiting for some comeback from people who I know are going to love what you're about.

These things happen. Trust me; I've been here a thousand times before.

Love,

Mirri

PS. Super-busy working with Nora on the new Tigers clothing label, so my assistant Shawnee will handle this stuff with you for now. You'll love her - she's so excited to be working with you!

10 Publicity opportunities...

Hey, Mirri here!

Things are starting to happen. We should definitely schedule some face-time to talk about how you see your Enforcer career developing, and what brand names you see as being especially useful in your personal war on crime.

If you don't mind, I might want to also invite along some image consultant and personal stylist friends of mine - never hurts to sharpen up that media-friendly look some!

Gotta run - meeting with Sofia's people to discuss her wardrobe for the new Tiger recruitment ads.

Talk soon!

Mirri
