The Aces- Inner Circle


 Former Crimelord
Knox is the current crimelord in town. Before his arrival the city's underworld was in total chaos. The criminal underworld was divided into different gangs and criminal organisations. The bosses of these groups weren't too fond of each other, always looking for a way to kill one another so he/she could take over their turf. As a result the town was plagued by constant gang wars. Knox was able to kill a few of these bosses and earn the loyalty of the others. He managed to unify all the different gangs and criminals and mold them into his liking. He dubbed this new group of individuals The Aces 
The Aces is a massive operation, controlling one third of North America's criminal activity. Knox treats every member as invaluable, everyone has their value. He acts as somewhat of a father figure towards the younger gang members. Having had a rough life himself, Knox can relate to the troubled youth. When confronted with a youth that wants to join his organisation, Knox will talk him out of it. He wants to spare the new generation the troubles he had.
The criminal organisation has different branches. A blackmailing branche, a smuggling branche etc. Knox's closest associates are called the Inner Circle. They are a group of few of the most skilled and powerful criminals in the world. Knox would meet with them every month to update on the situation.
