Mars City Shadowrun
Led by the mockingly named One Shot Wade, the Problem Children are a mid-sized undercity gang. One of their main activities is organlegging, as well as salvaging and selling used cyberware (from corpses both fresh and long buried). As such, they have a close connection to a noted undercity chop shop, run by Doc Todd. The PC’s also run a taxi stand franchise, Prometheus Cab Co, which operates throughout much of the city as both a legit venture, and a screening service for prospective organ “donors.” The PC’s recently allied with their street gangs neighbors, the Mad Martians, against the more powerful Black Shadows. They are hemmed in on their other sides by uppercity struts and city boundaries. Wade and MM boss Yoleus eventually came to the conclusion that the only logical expansion was outwards, into new turf, instead of constantly fighting along their shared border. Alone, neither gang could stand up to the might and wealth of the BS, but together, they’ve had a fair number of successes, aided especially by certain shadowrunners known to operate in their circles.
Wade recently avoided a grisly fate in a hospital ambush set by BS leader Long Pig, barely escaping with his life. Wade planned a major heist against BS’ money laundering chain in response, with the help of safe cracker and escape artist Ut-Napishtim. Having suceeded at this, they then raided the final BS redoubt, and a team of shadowrunners killed LP, as well as other members of the BS leadership, effectively dissolving the gang.
