===The Cadre===
 
===The Cadre===
"About 40 disciplined, well-armed violent bastards."
 
Led by '''Drano''', who likes being the big shot but isn't suited to civilian leadership.
 
 
'''Mostall''' Cadre guard, one of Drano's sergeants, often guards the market. Good with an SMG.
 
 
'''Piercer''' Mostall's partner and Player's parter-in-crime. Known for his ability with throwing knives.
 
  
 
===The Hungry Ghosts===
 
===The Hungry Ghosts===
Vengeful masked warriors on skimmer bikes, with a grudge against slavers and pimps and other pillars of society.
 
 
'''Rancid''' (the smelly one)
 
 
'''Sing''' (she does)
 
 
===Matalo's Motley Crew===
 
'''Harridan''' (rhythm guitar)
 
 
'''Jesus Christ''' (keyboard)
 
 
'''Dino''' (bass)
 
 
'''Ambeke''' (drums)
 
 
'''Si''' (additional keyboard and percussion and visual effects).
 
  
 
===Casino Residents===
 
===Casino Residents===
 
'''Marga the Butcher''', what you might call a doctor, also bartender.  Sleeps with one of the Cadre, doesn't like Player for many reasons, including a man.
 
 
"Skinny" '''Mika''', who is not technically a prostitute, but helps entertain guests to the Casino and reports back to Lin. Doesn't like Player for many reasons....
 
 
'''Ba''', weirdo and accountant.
 
 
'''8ball''', '''Vape''' and '''DeLorean''', Mechanics
 
 
'''Vonda''', sells art in the market and reports back to Lin.
 
 
===Casino Kids===
 
6 or so scrappy kids who think Tat's cool.
 
 
'''Jackabacka''' leader of the kids, tougher, prettier, and more self-confident than the others.
 
 
'''Wao''' son of a Cadre soldier
 
  
 
===Outsiders===
 
===Outsiders===
 
'''Judge''', the Oldest Man in the World, he lives in a luxury building with working sunlamps and has a cult. He survives by getting blood transfusions from kids, whom he is very fond of.
 
 
'''Orson''', runs an "establishment" in Town that offers everything the Casino does, plus a lot more, minus some stability and sanity.  Orson badly wants Matalo as a headliner and won't take no for an answer.
 
 
'''Etan-the-Bear''', an exotic trader from outside who owes Player a favor and brings her flowers. They say he comes from a place where it's cold and the puddles are hard and slippery.
 
 
'''Rolfball''', a weapons dealer from outside with a secret who's in league with an unfriendly dried fish dealer.
 
 
'''Dremmer''', an androgynous war-talker of the "Gold Gurlz" gang who dominate the Tower Road and is jealous of the Casino.
 
 
===Rivals and Enemies===
 
The '''Greatmen''', there's some murky history with Player here, they've split up recently into warring factions. As one does.  Time will tell if they reunite or get swallowed up by neighbords, in the meantime they're adding their own fresh layer of hell to daily life and making it harder for folks to get in and out of the city.
 
 
The '''Gold Gurlz''', a rival gang that sometimes blockades the Tower Road and charges tolls.
 
 
The '''Life-Changers''' cult south of the Casino.  Their supreme leader, '''Bells''', wants Player as a lawn ornament, or maybe as a ninth wife. Hard to tell. Something about his daughter.
 
 
The '''Pickers''' east of the Casino, a disreputable bunch of bandits.  Or the revolutionary liberators of the downtrodden, depending who you ask.  Easy to underestimate but with a real flair for ambushes and dirty tricks.
