Mars City Shadowrun
Sangre y Acero
Taking their name from Aztlan bloodsports, this is an anti-corp monastic militia. Quasi-mystical, they follow the teachings of their founder, a former gladiator who goes by Brother Barreda. They use brutal but effective tactics on their raids, but have been unable to make a significant global presence, due to their high casualty rate, and the popularity-limiting effect of the extreme violence they rely on.
They operate in a cell-structure, with only the cell leaders knowing how to contact others, receive intel, and coordinate when needed. Barreda himself has not been directly seen or heard from in many years. When captured alive (a rare occurrence) some members have been appropriated for experimentation on by the Gilgamesh Initiative.
The name means “Blood and Steel.”
