criminal syndicates

Syndicates active on Earth/Mars include a variety of ethnic/regional Mafias, as well as Yakuza, Triad syndicates, Seoulpa Rings, Vory V Zakone (“thieves who follow the code”-Russians) and Ghost Cartel (South/Central American) operations. There is also rumored to be an active Thuggee cult, but it is, as usual, fairly secretive.

The team has so far had the most encounters with the Yakuza, in the form of the Striking Crane Clan, and the Hikage Iinkai. Striking Crane was after the rat shaman Scrounge, who is believed to be deceased.
