Chiza

With kids from the class that the Tigers come from, cars are a whole rite of passage in themselves. Whether it's that beat-up old '89 Bishada sportster you worked weekends in one of your parents' restaurants for a year to pay for, or that little Han Compact Nouveau that your dad bought you as a reward for getting into college, it's all about the car.

For some kids, though, it's more than that. That's why Chiza started stealing cars when she was thirteen.

She always had a wild streak - racked up more time in detention than any kid at school - but stealing cars was just something she did for kicks, never for profit. Her family owned a chain of grocery stores across the city, so what did she need money for? Sometimes, after she'd boosted a really cool ride and drove it around town for a while, she'd even take it back and leave it parked where she'd found it. A great car is a thing of beauty, and - in Chiza's book - anyone who knew how to look after one properly deserved to have it returned to them in the same condition it was in when she borrowed it.

Most of all, though, she liked stealing cars from criminals. These ones, she didn't return. She'd drive them around for a while - she kept them in a lock-up garage in Yard Stretch, for appearance's sake driving there every day in the piece of shit Gryslor her parents had bought her - then sell them to a chop shop and give the money away to friends or to charity. Sometimes, she'd go hotrodding in them, heading over to the street racing circuit in Trasket.

One night, she fucked up, accepted a challenge that must have been a set-up from the start, and lost her car to the Rollers. The Rollers offered her a deal; she could keep the car, but only if she went to work for them, stealing cars to order until she'd given them back what the car was worth. She knew it was sucker-deal; the Rollers would never let her back out of it again. Lots of nice cars parked in those driveways in Prentiss; Rollers couldn't go into a place like that to boost them, but a nice girl like her could.

Chiza didn't know what to do. A couple of dozen counts of GTA wouldn't look so hot on her college applications. She hung out a lot with Orlenz' and Darryl. She and Orlenz' used to date, but it was never anything serious. Orlenz' knew what to do, and he wasn't going to let some bunch of Trasket trash do this to one of his friends. The next time Chiza rendezvoused with the Rollers, Orlenz' and some of the others were waiting. Orlenz' in the trunk of the car, with a couple of pistols, and Nora and Chung-hee up on a rooftop with hunting rifles. When the shooting was over, they were left looking at three dead Rollers and two burning cars - Nora and Chung-hee still argue over which one of them it was that scored the bulls-eye on the gas tank. They all went back to Prentiss on a high. No-one realised it at the time, but that was the night the Prentiss Tigers were born.

Chiza owed Orlenz'. When Orlenz' started putting the Tigers together, he didn't even have to ask. Chiza was one of the first to come aboard.

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.

Biography: Nekrova International

Nekrova International

Nekrova International is a Russian firearms manufacturer that began life as a state-run assembly plant for motorcycles. Named after Denva Nekrovazhinsky - a Communist revolutionary hero - the Nekrovazhinsky Motorcycle Works was built over the period 1933-1939 at an industrial location just outside of Kharkiv. Following the German invasion of 1941, Stalin ordered hundreds of factories moved east out of Ukraine and western Russia and Nekrova's main factory was moved by rail to Jekaterinburg and merged with the Serega Aero Factory No. 168 to create the Stalin Ural Aero Factory No. 168. The factory went on to provide vital materials for the Russian war effort, in particular aeronautical engines and airframes, though materials shortages during the latter stages of the war meant many production lines were recalibrated for firearm production, particularly in the run up to the Siege of Stalingrad. After the war, aeronautical production was scaled back and the company moved into manufacturing ICBM rocket components, while more fully devoting itself to the manufacture of small and heavy arms.

2 So you got your claws out then Tiger ;-)

Hi.

Nice work out there. Been hearing stuff about this crazy recruit coming up through the ranks. Good to know not all the stories I heard were typical bullshit talk.

Need a little more craziness in this gang. We started out wild, outlaws on the right side of the law, pulling some really insane stuff in the early days, but maybe we've got a little tamer as time passed.

Let's remind San Paro these cats still got claws.

Hasta luego.

Chiza

4 It's so much fun when it's legal, you know.

Maybe you haven't been a 'Forcer long enough, but this shit used to be more fun. We'd ride out, me and the original Tigers - Orlenz', Akiko, Chung, Nora - and fuck up big-time any crims we ran into.

Then Derren's bill got passed, and we went legit. You remember those questions you had to answer to get your CSA license?

'Ever been arrested?' - me: nope. (true)

'Ever broken the law?' - me: nope. (giant fucking lie - I probably boosted more cars than Kiki Monroe's had fur pie)

Someone call the San Paro Standard - "high-ranking Prentiss Tiger has secret crim past!"

Later

Chiza

6 Don't let fame blunt your teeth.

You caught up with Sofia yet? Shit, I remember the day Darryl Kent's big sis landed that nuke strike on Planet Prentiss. "Big news, cadets. We just signed up San Paro's biggest superstar for a tour of duty with the Tigers."

Right. Like you can see her rousting hijack crews in Yard Stretch or repelling home invasion teams working the Fortuna projects?

Remember what I was saying about Tigers losing their bite?

Wait, you were probably waiting to hear more on what I was saying about my old car-boosting days, right?

Definitely a To Be Continued moment :-)

8 Re: Don't let fame blunt your teeth.

Things change, you know?

Prentiss has. Used to be a cool place to grow up. Now it's an armed camp.

Tigers changed too. Got old man Byeong issuing orders like we're at police academy. Getting our pictures in magazines and we're hanging out with Sofia. Did I miss a memo, and we're suddenly the Blood Roses?

(Speaking of which, we even got our own pet Blood Rose now. WTF?)

Being a Tiger and wasting crims used to be fun. Now it feels like a career move.

Or maybe I've just been doing it too long, and it still is fun. New Tigers like you, maybe you just got different ways of doing the same wild stuff.

Buena suerte,

Chiza
