Cut-And-Paste from O/O page.
In the run-down city of Lenore, debauchery runs amok. The businesses are all ruled by three rival gangs, but anyone who lives in that city isn't there for the office work. They're there for the gangs themselves.
Of the three gangs, the Clandestine hold the most power. Ruled by an elusive cold-hearted Frenchmen and never afraid to carry out a hit, the Clandestine rule the prostitute business in Lenore. They also hold the smallest piece of the city, but it's enough for them.
A close second to the Clandestine, the Davenport sector controls the drug business of Lenore. Ruled by an easily-angered man who insists on ruling with an iron fist, the Davenport holds it's power (and the largest part of the city,) by sheer number. The son of the leader, Miraj, tends to take over relations with the men.
The third sector in Lenore is ruled by the Albels. The most business oriented of the three, the Albels dominate the alcohol industry. Mild-mannered but strict on holding their position of power, the Albels hold the second largest sector of Lenore. The leader's son, Felix, is set to inherit his father's legacy, but he's widely considered too soft and unfit for the job.
Recently, activity between the gangs has picked up. It's rumored that one of the high ranking Clandestines was killed while out on the job-- in the Albel sector. The Clandestines, in turn, sought out revenge and have increased hostility towards the Albels. Transactions between the two are now closely monitored. Sensing weakness, the Davenport's attacked, attempting to gain more land.
No particular character picked out on my part, but I do favor Miraj.
As for you, well, you take your pick. An average or important Clandestine, Davenport, or Albel. Or someone who just got tangled up in all this mess. It's pretty flexible.
