Family Men and Women
The Kingpins and Crime Lords, the legendary Godfathers. From the
booze smuggling Al Capone to the modern data-brokering of Staci Giovanni,
the power of the American Mafia has risen to its highest point since
the early 20th Century. Organized Crime and the Corporations have learned
much from each other in the last fifty years, prompting massive Mob diversification
into such varried industries as genetic manipulation and city-wide protection
rackets. Still maintaining the Family First attitude handed down through the
generations from their original Italian ancestors, the modern Mafia is
the closest thing that many Edgerunners have to a real family--albiet a
sick and abusive one.
Haven taken a beating from foreign organizations like the Yakuza, Triads, and Cartels, the American and Old Soviet Mafias have begun to fight back in the only way they know how--intimidation and violence. With theit fists deep into political pockets, the call has gone out nationwide for recruitment. Nevertheless, pity the soul that swears loyalty to a Don without knowing what they're getting into.
BASIC CAREER SKILLS
"What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come
to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering
this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies,
then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you."
"Why did I get into this business? Easy: Money, power, respect. I started out as a kick-boy at the bottom of the ladder, cleaning pools at the local country club. I said 'Yes Sir!' and 'Thank you Sir!' to every rich bastard in this city, but I vowed to outdo them all. I pulled this Family up by their interface cables and never looked back. So when I ask you if you would like a piece of the action, there is only one word that should be coming out of your mouth. To quote the greatest movie of all time, 'I'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse'"
