<b>The Syndicate </b>
TYPE: Street Gang
MEMBERS: KittyH, Bellelefleur, Felinda Krell, 8amadeus8
BACKGROUND: : The Syndicate began when Agony and Venom (belle and andi) decided to pull away from their current affiliation with the Static Bandits. While they appreciate the members of the Bandits, the two came to realize that their ideals were much different, and it was time to act on them. The girls felt like they needed a purpose. Based on their history (both girls were kidnapped by the same man who’s mission was to ‘enlighten the city’), they decided that it was time to take things into their own hands. They’ve offered their help to some of the weaker members of the city, offering protection. On occasion, people have also come to them, asking for someone to be ‘handled’ because they had been giving them trouble. (and by handle, I mean roughing them up, demanding money in exchange for their safety.) Those that they offer help to must either pay in money (ICly of course) or in favors. They have teamed up with a few other members of the community as well, in order to accomplish this. For example, DE’s (future) bailbondsman would be involved. While his business will be legitimate, the syndicate will be assisting with the more underground aspects of it, and he will assist in providing a little muscle that the girls could certainly use. Consider it a ‘thug-for-hire’ business. We offer protection to those too weak to seek it themselves, and perhaps too afraid of going to the police. It’s our own way of ‘helping’ the city. The Tea Shop, located in the Asian District, will be providing the front for everything. Andi is often there, and is easily reachable by her employees if she isn’t. When the word on them spreads, future clients (and enemies too!) can know where to find her. It will provide income for them as well, since it is Andi’s main source of money. Unique: The gangs calling card will be lollipops. If we show up and have an encounter with someone, beat you up for whatever reason, we’ll tuck a sucker in their pocket/mouth/hand so that others will know we had been there. I think it’s a good way to get our name out there, as well as allowing the DEPD to have kind of an on-going case with us. In addition, we would also be approachable to those in DE who wouldn’t normally seek out gang members (a lot of the innocent folk, for example.) So we would be able to grow and expand our RP on, hopefully, a wider and more reaching basis.
UNIQUE: The Tea Shop would be used as a front. Faction Members can expect to meet there, in the basement, and know to come there to ask for Andi. Customers will still get standard service, and on occasion they may witness a few things that are related to the gang. Visitors will get the same treatment, depending on how long they stay around.
FLAW: Andi’s business could take a hit, especially when word gets out about what they’re doing. The business could very easily be a target. She would also have to work with her employees to ensure their safety if that becomes an issue.
POTENTIAL ENEMY: Potential enemy: Other rival gangs, of course—although I hope to have an alliance with the Bandits. Additionally, anyone that has been targeted by the Syndicate could go and try to seek revenge on us. They have already garnered a few enemies based on their current gang affiliation. . I would also like to speak with the owner of Sugar Rush (I have yet to catch her on sim when I am) about working out a ‘custom’ candy order, with specialized suckers that can be laced with certain drugs
EXPERIENCE:: I have owned clubs in the past, as well as assisted in leading other clans, back when I used to play bloodlines. I am also a community leader, and owner of Miss Kitty’s Tea House.
IDEAS:New players on the sim would likely interact at the tea shop first and foremost, where Andi is always welcoming. They may additionally see a little bit of the underground while there, depending on what's going on.
