Sentiments/Non-Humans: Sure, why not?
Sentiments/Coalition: They could be such a tool for good, but they're misguided. Erin Tarn is right.
OOC Comments
Prosek is a genius. Too bad he's also an idiot with his fear of magic.

Sentiments/The Booster Boys: Not a threat unless you've got a fancy car.
OOC Comments
I wonder if they'd let me join. They definitely know how to make money.

Sentiments/Cyber Street Gang: Brutal butchers.
OOC Comments
Everyone hates them and they're packed full of valuable 'ware. I'd love to be there when they get taken down. I wonder if I can make that happen...

Sentiments/The Greenskin Gang: All gone. It's sad how brutal life on the streets is.
OOC Comments
I shanked one! Two? Two! God, I'm so badass! Too bad I didn't get to set them on the CSG. Losers.

Sentiments/Mephisto's Horsemen: They're more than just a 'gang.' A new syndicate?
OOC Comments
Their reputation has them on par with an elite merc company. Whatever game they're playing I want no part of it.

Sentiments/The Mega-Monkeys: Another standard gang cluttering up the streets.
OOC Comments
Another obstacle to taking over the Warrens, albeit a potentially lucrative obstacle.

Sentiments/The Red Terror: Overly enthusiastic, but their hearts are in the right place.
OOC Comments
Ideal tools - a good reputation and a penchant for 'righteous' murder.

Disposition: Friendly!
OOC Comments
and Manipulative!

Background Story
Johnny Rico just wants to make the Warrens a better place.
OOC Comments
By taking them over.

Maybe he commits some light crime, but Johnny grew up here and his family is here. Merctown is a great place to live and he wants to help it continue to prosper.
OOC Comments
Also by taking it over.

He wishes he didn't have to crime, but that's how it is when you're super smooth and grew up in the bad part of town.

Johnny doesn't know how to drive, but he likes fast cars and doing research. Sometimes he talks about himself in the third person. Johnny loves the ladies and, also, video games. Johnny hopes to keep improving himself
OOC Comments
through cybernetic, magical and symbiotic means
so that he can be a credit to the city he loves.
OOC Comments
And rule as its undisputed criminal overlord if not outright king.

Even though Johnny doesn't live with his parents anymore (he lives in a small apartment - gotta start somewhere!), he visits them for every holiday and keeps an eye out for his brothers and sister.
