    AKA
    The Cronies

    A band of infighting wasteland warriors - The Cronies are an alliance of men and women who believe the key to survival lies on the surface, among the corpses of their enemies. Their common goal to conquer the surface and kill the subway-dwellers is often hindered by the routine scheming and plotting of the factions higher-ups to take power for themselves. The faction is governed by a single dictator and his many enforcers, who are commonly the culprits behind power-shifts. The Cronies as a group developed quickly after the bombings, and their strength and influence has been expanding rapidly as they take further control of their home station. Though they're willing to accept new members from all across the cities subway, a common mentality of "join or die" has become commonplace for those who The Cronies encounter. They've come to see other groups and factions as enemies, associating them with the monsters that roam the above-ground. And, with the ultimate goal of exterminating all mutants, both above and below the surface, it's easy to understand why The Cronies are so feared and hated.

    With such a direct focus on reaching the surface and rebuilding, many of the Cronies have disregarded diplomacy when it came to dealing with neighboring stations and the factions that controlled them. In their leaders eyes, war below ground serves as the necessary catalyst to propel survivors back to the surface, where mutants can be eradicated and humans can escape the scum infested underground. Little is known about what the surface will be like now, though, since exits have been blocked off since the initial bomb blasts. And while the Cronies attempt to a find a way back to the surface, their neighbors have begun plotting on how to erase them before they create an entrance to the surface that'll allow even more mutants in. That is, in fact, the major point of contention between the Cronies and their opposition. While those in the group believe they'll be able to take on the mutants with what little weapons they have, others have come to the understanding that a path to the surface for the survivors also means a path to the underground for the mutants.

    So they'll continue searching for a route that leads back to their former cities streets above, procuring weapons, men, and armor from the subways survivors as they prepare. Such is the life of the Cronies, spending one moment with a gleaming eye of a future back on the surface, and the next killing inhabitants of the underground who oppose their rise, both for supplies and security. Hindered only by the rubble that blocks their paths and the other factions attacks on their stations, what happens with the Cronies and their quest remains to be seen.

    King of the Cronies:
    Davin Owens - Strat
    [​IMG]


    From obscure backgrounds come the most prominent of men. Davin, born in Ireland, was brought to America as a child where he soon began working dangerous and illegal jobs for the Lucchese family, a local Mafia group, to pay for his mothers increasingly costly influenza medicine. As his experience with the crime family grew, he too rose through the ranks until the untimely nuclear war forced him underground without the friends and allies he had grown up with. Without family to turn to, Davin joined The Cronies, a group made up of criminals, gangsters, and other vagrants. Squabbling for leadership eventually allowed Davin to take control of the group, leading it successfully for some time, though the new threat of a looming war with neighboring factions and surface mutants will test his leadership and courage.

    The Hand of Liberation
    AKA the Cronies

    General Info:
    Founded by Marco Antonio, an enforcer of the Italian Mafia that happened to be in the Subway when the world went to shit, the leadership role was passed around from person to person, mostly as a result of an up-and-comer killing the old leader. Inner factions in the Cronies caused friction to spread vehemently as various immigrant and cultural groups clashed. Eventually, however, one Irish immigrant and member of the old Irish Mob rose to the top, a man named Davin Owens. His ruthless and cunning was matched only by his charm, which he used to ease tensions among the immigrants. He also gave the group a new name- the Hand of Liberation, as well as a new goal...

    Current Goal(s):

    Take over the subway, subjugate all that stand in our way.

    Liberate the surface, by any means necessary.

    Current Station(s):
    Essex
    Vestige


    Rivals:

    Trap Police Dhingos - Black is Whack

    Green Bean Bamboozlers

    Hierarchy:
    Boss of Bosses:
    The boss of bosses is just that, the boss of bosses. Self-explanatory, really.

    Counselor:
    Acts as the advisor to the Boss of Bosses and as his second in command, helping to maintain both upper and lower castes.

    Broker:
    The leader of the Associates and other traders, the Broker is in charge of the Cronies economy.

    Capto:
    Under-Bosses chosen by the Boss of Bosses, they're typically in charge of running things in the Boss of Bosses' stead. Typically, they are given (or take) a crew (see "Crew Info" below this list).

    Enforcer:
    Under-Under-Bosses, these guys are thugs or other members of the gang that have proven their importance. They help maintain the lower caste.

    Hitman:
    The people who do the dirty work. They remain unrostered to protect their identities (and because I'm lazy)

    Freshies:
    Recruits of the Cronie faction, these thugs are the underlings of the underlings, and must prove their worth through determination and loyalty.

    Associates:
    Associates are traders, workers, and scavengers under the direct authority of the Cartel, and are not subject to extor-- I mean, protection fees.

    Crew Info

    A crew can be formed by any Capo, allowing him/her to hand pick his/her cohorts. When choosing a crew, the Capo must keep in mind his leadership strengths and weakness, as well as the traits of the crew he may pick from in order to maximize efficiency (and lethality.)
