Orlenz' Moretti

Five generations ago, Orlenz' Moretti's great great-grandfather walked down the gangplank of a steam ship and stood on the jetty of the San Paro waterfront, just another poor paisan immigrant who'd followed the tides of prosperity to find a new life in a new continent. He didn't find it, ending his days working as a dockhand among the dockside wharfs, sometimes supplanting his meagre income by taking part in illegal bare-knuckles prize fights in order to feed his family.

His son, Orlenz's great-grandfather, fared a little better, moving further inland to Midtown to join the mass of immigrant poor now congregating in ghetto areas there. This generation had learned the lesson from watching the sufferings of their parents; San Paro's prosperity was not to be theirs. They spoke the wrong language and worshipped the wrong god, and the locals didn't want them here. If they were to get any part of the wealth all around them, they would have to take it, rather than wait for it to be shared with them. They banded together for self-protection, some of them remembering and forming around something that many others had hoped they had left behind forever back in the Old Country.

Crime was Orlenz's great-grandfather's means to prosperity, but it was his son - Orlenz's grandfather - who was the real founder of the Moretti family fortune. One of the original ganglords of San Paro, he ended his days ensconced in the new family mansion in The Concession, aping the wealth and manners of the San Paro moneyed class who he claimed to despise so much. The next generation of the Moretti family - Orlenz's father - broke with family tradition and went into business, telling the old man that in the modern world, you can steal more with a handshake and a business diploma that you can with a gun, and all of it legitimately. The son knew that his father and the other old men would soon be dinosaurs, sitting there in their garish mansions and refusing to acknowledge that crime in San Paro was changing, that the new generations of criminals coming up through the ranks laughed at them and their ludicrous codes of honour and exaggerated Old Country manners. The son got out while he could, thriving in legitimate business, even if the basis of that business was built on laundered money belonging to his father and a syndicate of his father's friends. He moved out to Prentiss in the Waterfront district, ironically bringing full-circle the journey begun more than a century earlier with his great-grandfather.

Prentiss is where Orlenz' Moretti grew up, its quiet streets, well-tended lawns and gated community peace and quiet only a mile or so as the crow flies - but a world away in terms of time and social movement - from that squalid dockside where Moretti Senior first arrived in San Paro. Like everyone else in Prentiss, Orlenz' knows they've got a good thing going on here, and good things have to be cared for and protected. The city's falling apart. Walk a couple of blocks from the tree-lined lanes of Prentiss and into Fortuna Village, and you can see the damage for yourself. How long before it starts to reach into Prentiss, into the homes the people there have worked so hard to build and protect? Sure, they've got private security patrolling the streets, but how much can you trust some rentacop earning something not much more than minimum wage to stick around when the bullets start flying?

No, you want a job done; you got to do it yourself. That's what Orlenz' - star quarterback at the private school most families in Prentiss send their kids to, the guy with the hottest prom date, and always the host of the best kegger - thought, and there were plenty in his circle willing to go along with him. Like every good quarterback, Orlenz' thought in terms of offence, not defence, so the strategy's been to take the fight out into the Waterfront, confronting the likes of the Blood Roses on their own turf, before the battle gets brought to Prentiss. And that's how the Prentiss Tigers were born.

Orlenz's life might be a world away from that the first Moretti, but there's plenty of the old family bare-knuckles prize fighter spirit in him. The difference is, while those earlier Morettis were have-nots, fighting to get their foot in the door, Orlenz' and his friends very much belong among the haves of San Paro, and are fighting to keep the have-nots firmly in their place. If Orlenz' - extremely proud of his family's streetfighter roots - is aware of the inconsistency, he never mentions it.

Biography: Somatic A-TAS

Somatic A-TAS (Somatic Advanced Tactical Systems)

Somatic National Laboratories (a National Security facility) is a major weapons research and development laboratory, managed and operated by the Somatic Corporation. Their main secured campus is located on Silverfield Air Force Base. Established in July 1945, and developed during World War II and the Manhattan Project, the primary mission of Somatic Advanced Tactical Systems is to develop, engineer, assemble and test, advanced weapon delivery platforms. Their weaponry is developed in close collaboration with the Government Defence Forces, using joint R&D groups to modify and develop new products through field-testing and active deployment in the theatre of war. Conspiracy theorists argue that testing occurs closer to home, with rumours of a Somatic-equipped covert division within the Praetorians. Wilder tabloid reports even suggest midnight manhunts on the streets of Havalynd. All unconfirmed.

2 You ain't gotta be from Prentiss to be a top Tiger.

Yo!

Nice work out there. You're not from Prentiss, are you? That's okay. Getting used to having all these foreign players on the team now. :-)

This thing's getting bigger all the time. New people coming in from all over, wanting to sign up as Tigers. 'Connecting with the wider marketplace' like Darryl's sister would say. Least now I know what she's talking about.

Doesn't make any difference to me where you come from (long as it's not Trasket - shit, I hate those bridge & tunnel losers!) just as long as you got game and are ready and able to kick crim ass.

O'M

6 You read what they saying about us now?

Hey

People always ragging on the Tigers coz we're supposed to be these stuck-up privileged rich kids. Fuck that.

The first Moretti into SP was a penniless immigrant - came off the boat right down there at Grand Wharf. Know what he did when he couldn't get a job? Earned bread as a bare-knuckles boxing prize-fighter. A real stand-up guy - never asked for free handouts, never used what he had to rip people off when he coulda been this big tough crim.

No-one ever gave us Morettis anything. Everything we got, we earned for ourselves. And these assholes say we always had it easy? Fuck them.

O'M

9 You gotta do what you love and love what you do, right?

You know Chung-hee, right? Great guy - only guy who coulda taken the captain's spot offa me on the college team. But that's not what he's about - always done his own thing. Proving he's the best to himself, not to anyone else. Gotta admire that.

That buzz-hunter thing he's into, sometimes wonder if that's why we all do it. Like, forget all that CSA/Team Derren shit?

Gotta admit, it's some rush, being out there facing off against the crims.

(And the team perks - free sponsorship stuff, party night every night at For The Win, all that 'special attention' from fans wanting to get up close with a Tiger - not so bad either, right?)

Stay Prentiss,

O'M

12 Catch up.

Hey,

Sorry I didn't get back to you before now. Been doing this big photo-op with Sofia, then I was hanging out some with Deke Swearinger. He's a big Tigers fan - just about as much as I'm a Stallions freak.

Some crazy stuff I just said there, right? You told me where this was all going, back when we got together to take care of the shit Chiza was in, and I'd say you were gonna fail your next random dope test.

Can't believe how far this thing's gone, so fast. Maybe too fast, some Tigers are thinking. I hear what they're saying - seriously - but there's too many good people counting on Tigers protection for us to call time on this now.

Keep fightin'!

O

15 You up or what?

Busy times. Blood Roses still picking off our people (gonna be leveling out that score soon enough) and someone's been planting IEDs on the Prentiss Links again.

On the plus, we blitzed the Armory Wharf thing, Chiza ran down (like, literally) that crim who's been sticking up tourists on the boardwalk and Mae-Jo's Hunting & Fishing have signed up as a sponsor.

Need to talk to you, though. Know there's problems in the locker room - Akiko thinking about doing her own thing, Chiza not happy about stuff.

Tigers are changing, maybe gonna lose some of our starting formation. That happens, I want you to come in as a new player. You up?

O

PS. Got tickets for the Stallions game. Come along - we'll talk then.
