Shady Characters

“The Shady City would present to me some of the most shadiest characters I would ever have the misfortune to meet.”

Our Faithful Narrator

Character Profile: Sam Crusow

Of all the stories Sam has chased, none compared to when he was led to the KNOCK KNOCK CLUB in search of the missing Mayor. That was when the true dirty face of the city began to reveal itself.

Three reporters. How many will survive chasing stories in the Shady City.

The Knock Knock Club

Macks bring the booze. The Knock Knock club bring the talent.

Character Profile: Tabitha

She’s a Mean Queen and not easy to take down. Her well manicured nails are firmly dug into the Shady City.

Character Profile: Dennis Platt

He had a great life. What could possibly have caused a respected man about town to give it all up manage the seediest club in town.

Knock Knock Boss Lady, Tabitha, poses with her aunts – The Baroness and the Broker.

0109: Interview with tawny mcinney

A woman, middle aged, frizzy haired and full figured is brought before me. She is smiling despite her surroundings. She has an unlit cigarette in her hand. She knows she’s not allowed to smoke in the office but she clutches it for comfort. Behind that smile is perhaps a little nervousness.

Where you visiting from?

When times got tough for Tabitha she could always run to the Knock Knock club. This was different though. She couldn’t let her aunt know. She wasn’t ready to talk about what happened.

Setting the Stage

When the bombs rained in and the shooting began the curtains closed for good.

Justice Is Served

The Shady City has always made rules of her own but the line is now drawn.

You’re driving me mad.

Tabitha would make them sorry. She had already begun to. That’s what Agnes was worried about and it was driving her mad.

You’ve Been Served (Part 1)

The Knock Knock BARONESS can barely hold it together on stage.
A letter from the Law Makers is throwing everything into disarray. Time for new leadership.

You’ve Been Served (Part 2)

As the hammer of justice crashes down its thunder will resonate across the entire reach of the Shady City. Many will fear the vibrations but if fear is what it takes then fear it shall be.

Trouble is Brewing

It was a simple moment in life but it is those simple moments that affect us the most. Sure the mug was old, worn and chipped but to rid of it would be to forget those laughs and giggles ever happened.

Fixing Broken Things

I’m not the only kid who ever thought about running away from home, you know. But I can bet that there aren’t many who thought about it as much as I did. I was stopped so many times, brought back to the start. They couldn’t hold me forever. 

The Penns

Reginald Penn with his triplet sons.

Character Profile: Reginald Penn

Reginald pays no mind to the law when it comes to protecting his friends and family. They call him the King of City Main. He’s a noble king but not one to be threatened.

Character Profile: Marcus Penn

Marcus is a no nonsense man who knows just what it takes to get a job done. He is fully acquainted with the darker side of the Shady City.

Character Profile: Simon ‘Punchline’ Penn

A champion boxer, Simon is passionate about keeping in the best shape he can be. But don’t let that fool you, he also has great head for numbers and is the accounts keeper for the AUCTION HOUSE.

Marcus Penn and his triplet brothers.

Vets, Pets and Lonesome Nights

The Penn triplets have a reputation in the city, violent and wild, so when carrier with two sick rats was given to mild mannered vet, Alex Ferrald, a lot was at stake.

“Rat boy!”

Reggie learned that day that a rat’s sharp incisors could tear human flesh quite easily.

The Macks

The Mack Distillery, located on Love Street in Bellfield.

Character Profile: Kieran Mack

The Mack and Sons form such a tight unit because of their loyalty to each other. Kieran may be the first to cause a headache for them but he is also the first there on hand to help when trouble arrives on Love Street.

Character Profile: Paddy (Patrick) Mack

Although, Paddy is attempting to bring the Macks into a more peaceful era things in Shady City won’t improve unless he is willing to show a little strength through violence.

Paddy Mack is given an ultimatum.

The Owens

Son and heir Bernard ‘Buddy’ Owen interrupts his shenanigans to accept a call from his father, The Cappy.

Character Profile: Bernard ‘Buddy’ Owen

Having come to the city from the Great States Buddy is a big shark in a pond of minnows. With the whole world at his feet and a powerful family driving him forward Buddy seems a force to be reckoned with.

Character Profile: William ‘Billy’ Owen

Billy is from the broken branch of the Owen family tree so when there are things to mend he’s the best man to call. Just remember folks, an Owen never misses a target and Billy has set his sights on The Shady City.

Character Profile: Jerry Owen

If not the shadiest character in the Shady he’s most definitely top three. Father Jerry Owen is a legend for all the wrong reasons.

Owen spokesman, Ronnie, delivers to the press.

Bros for Life!

Kappa So means brothers for life.

Character profile: Chad Perry

What will become of Chad Perry? Who knows? But no matter what happens it is almost a certainty his Kappa So bros will be there right along with him.

Character Profile: Dale Cooper

As far as the Kappa So brothers are concerned Cooper is considered the level head. That doesn’t say much for them or bode well for any who come up against them

What’s the Rush? Part 1

Daniel has a choice, keep his personal life a secret or suffer the consequences from his new brothers. Seems like an easy decision.

What’s the Rush? part 2

“Try me old man. I got nothin’ on ma schedule and a long day ahead. You keep your mouth shut and we say nothin’ more of it.”

What’s the Rush? Part 3

When the Captain returned from the Great States and saw how effective Buddy had been he would be proud.

We Are Kappa So!

You better believe we are and we’re coming for you, bitches.
We have no one to keep us in check so things are going to get wild.

The Harvesters

Fresh family produce delivered all over the city.

Character Profile: Glenn

A simple man. With providing for his family his only goal his strength and obedience are perfect prey for an opportunist.

Character Profile: Curtis

Character Profile: Lydia Lowe

Lydia has her reasons for being in the Knock Knock club and it’s more than just a job to her. It is the ideal place to observe, to learn and to build a case. In order to do that she has to keep her head down, do her job and keep her feet firm when it comes to back lash from the Boss Lady herself.

What Did You Do?

Olivia has to face some horrible truths about what’s been happening between her husband and the young girls she brought into her care.

Dance Like Everyone is Watching

His reputation spread but his focus became lost. The art was still speaking to him but the words started to echo the negativity he was trying to bury.

They can’t help but feel there is something a little off about him though…

1310: Interview with David Finn

A scruffy young man is sat before me. His hair is bleached, his body thin and a little malnourished. He’s been through a lot it seems but brought to Harbour House to combat a drug addiction he’s on the list of those we aim to make better.

As long as it takes

You see, it wouldn’t do good for the residents of Harbour House to look at what went beyond the safe little world that had been created for them.

1105: Interview with Vincent Baines

I am now speaking to a well presented gentleman. He is groomed, well dressed and watching me keenly. However, he struggles with serious personality issues and his residence at Harbour House came at a huge cost.

Character Profile: Seth Bergman

His pacifistic father has raised him to stay clear of the corruption and violence that is common in the Shady City but as things close in on them Seth believes they can’t avoid it forever.

Diamonds and Stripes

The Stoker Circus family and the Bergman diamond merchants have a long history. They finally find common ground when a cult group gathers popularity. They are very different though so deciding how to deal with it will prove problematic.

The Inmates and Staff of The Boss

Inmate 2011: Jake Fullerton

Charged with aggravated assault jake has two years to serve (at least) so he had best knuckle under and keep that temper in check if he ever wants to leave again.

Inmate 0902: Lucca Markov

They call him ‘Lucky Lucca’ and he’s been in all the big magazines. When his sweet existence started to fall apart suddenly things didn’t seem so pretty. Now he’s Inmate 0902 of Coldford Correctional.

Inmate 1708: Matthew Lane

Quiet, polite and agreeable, Matty never poses any trouble for the guards of Coldford Correctional. He is always where he needs to be and when. Not that he has much choice in that matter. He is a nice guy. Murder of his wife aside of course.

Inmate 1204: Wayne Grundy

They call him the Bamber Bear killer and he is caged in Coldford Correctional for the massacre that happened at the restaurant for little tykes. He maintains that he is innocent. Is anyone really innocent behind the walls of The Boss?

Now In Servitude: The Boss

Coldford Correctional, better known as The Boss for the way it looms over the northern town of Bournton, plays home to some of the Shady City’s most dangerous characters.

Hell Awaits Our Unfortunate Inmates

Bring me that one and that one! He appears to be at a loss. You will all reminded I AM THE BOSS! Prison life in this instance is a descent into Hell.
