Occupation: Oyabun Shotozumi-Gumi (Baltimore)
Influence: Criminal, Corporate
Ryu Shotozumi is the younger brother of Hanzo Shotozumi, Oyabun of one of Seattle's most powerful criminal syndicates
in the world and your previous boss. Ryu was sent to Baltimore to bring a real Yakuza presence to the Port City. He arrived
a year ahead of you, in part due to your actions in Seattle for the Renraku Magacorporation, which they gave the rights to
a luxury hotel in Baltimore's Inner Harbor to the Yakuza as payment. He has been busy negotiating contracts and terms for
opening a full blown casino in a city that strictly regulates gambling, only allowing slots with a license, a license controlled
by the Mafia.
He is almost open for business, so Hanzo sent you here to provide any "special" assistance his brother may require. The
two of you have not had much contact, even back in Seattle, however you find yourself in a different city even further from
your home in Japan to do a job.

Trixie is pretty well known around the nightclubs of the harbor as the girl to see if you want to party. She is always
in the company of more muscle than brain jocks from the local universities, but the quality of her merchandise is well worth

5th Column is Josh Stantons on air personality. Operating a pirate trid show out of Chicago, Illinois, the kid is a brilliant
decker. He has contacts in the Media, Corporate, Street and Political circles of the UCAS. Anywhere or anytime he can embarass
or discredit those in power he will jump at the opportunity. He was a contact you made while in prison, corresponding with
him on a number of "investigative" reports into Seattle's Crowded Prison System. He also has a serious grudge against Renraku,
though his ire is obvious he doesn't speak about the reasons behind his hatred. He travels across the UCAS and the CAS covering
various events and seems to have taken a serious interest in you since your first communication.
