Chiro

Most people in San Paro dream of finally getting out of the place. Incredibly, some people actually still want to visit the place on vacation.

The Waterfront area is one of the places they often end up visiting during their stay. Or, at least, the more quaint and gentrified parts of it. Chiro used to be a G-King gangbanger, fighting in the first wave of turf wars that started even before the concrete was dry on the New Cross Skatepark. Born and raised in Gresty, he didn't really know - or want - anything else.

Now, older and wiser, he's moved on and set himself up in business over on Waterfront. A small tattoo parlour on the fringes of the Clearview Marina development. Phoney as hell, but a lot better than the SPPD holding cells and backrooms of Gantry project apartments where he first taught himself tattooing. He's got an apartment in Little Fin where he stays with his girlfriend and their kid; again, it's not much, but it's a hell of a lot more than he ever had as a kid, and he's determined to keep this good thing going.

His custom's varied enough to keep the work interesting. G-King kids make the journey over from Havalynd, looking to get their first gang tat from the same guy that did most of Zombie's skinwork, and there's plenty of walk-in trade from the other gangs all across the city. Chiro's heart will always be with the G-Kings, but he's savvy enough to remember the rent needs to be paid every week, and his work's good enough that everyone generally respects the unofficial agreement that Chiro's tattoo parlour is neutral territory, where you check your beefs with any other crews in at the door. The nearby working port provides plenty of traditional custom from ship's crews, of course, and there's always plenty of kids from the Waterfront boho scene looking to get themselves inked up in the latest skin-art styles.

On slow days, he takes his shirt off, picks up his board and goes outside to practice some moves. There's kids down the NCS who are half his age and twice as good on a board, he knows, but he can still put on a show when he wants to. The moves and the skin-art on him - some of it his own, and his best work; the artist as his own canvas - is usually guaranteed to draw a crowd, and he's happy enough to pose for photographs with tourists, especially if he can sell them a Chiro's Famous San Paro Tattoos T-shirt into the bargain.

It might not be much for a lot of people, but it's a lot more than he ever expected to have in life.

He's strict about his joint being neutral territory, but all sorts come in the door, rapping about this and that, and he keeps his ear to the ground. Useful guy to know, Chiro. Always something going on down there at that Waterfront tattoo shop of his.

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.

2 Let them get on with it.

You like the Waterfront? I do. Stroll along the boardwalk with my girl. Take my kid to watch the boats coming in. Hang out in front of the shop, showing off my skin art and practicing old board tricks.

Not like Gresty. No dog shit and broken glass on the sidewalk, no cops and Praetorians treating you like something worse than dog shit.

Different kind of jerks here, though. Two lots of rich kids looking to take each other out. One supposed to be Crim and the other one CSA - hell if I can tell the difference

But rich kids killing other rich kids? When has that ever been a bad idea?

Cuídate, C.

4 ¿Que pasa?

Don't know about you, but I like the quiet life these days.

Got my lady, got my kid. Got my shop. Got my regular customers. People who come in there, I know who they are. I know their money's good, I know they're not going to cause trouble or bring anything bad to where I live.

Comprende what I'm saying here?

From what I seen, you seem to know what you're doing. Keep things moving that way, and we're going to get along fine.

Take it easy,

C

6 I just sell them ;-)

You know them 4-Wheeled Doggi comix you see round the place? Seem to be big now. I get people coming into the shop all the time, looking for 4-wd skin art.

Don't know why they come special to me. I just sell the comix in the shop sometimes.

Got TV people coming in too now. They want to make 4-Wheeled Doggi Saturday morning cartoons and put him on lunchboxes and t-shirts. Lot of money in that doggi, they say.

Don't know why they're telling me. It's not like I'm the guy who draws it, or anything ;-)

No deal, and they'll never understand why. It's a G thing, right?

C.

8 Keep the dream alive my friend.

I had this friend once. Me and him used to sit down the NCS at night. Drink cheap wine, look up at the big fancy corporate buildings, all lit up and fulla money, and talk about how one day we were going to burn them all down.

Didn't happen. He got wasted, I got older and life moved on. I was just a dumb kid then. But we still had the right idea.

You remind me of him. Maybe you going to do what we only talked about. Burn it all down one day, you and the new generation of Gs.

Just don't get wasted first, okay?

Hasta luego, C.

10 My walking ad!

You know Zombie? Dumb question. Hard to miss, right? 280 pounds of all-Gresty meanness, stacked about seven feet high.

That's my skin art all over him. Havalynd's Most Wanted, brought to you by Chiro's Famous San Paro Tattoos. Business goes up every time they run those wanted ads. Free TV advertising!

He's out of circulation, though - guess you know where. Praetorians put their highest-value target price tag on him, sent their pet toy soldiers after him. B-Boss thought it was best for him to drop out of sight.

Z the G against poster boy LaRocha. ¡Coño! There's a fight I'd want to watch!
