The largest (and by far the most psychotic) gang in Downtown is the Halloweeners. They started as a thriller gang out to make some cred and have some fun robbing the district’s rich folk. Then they messed with a particularly high-level Renraku executive—a bad mistake. Renraku Security decided to teach the gang a lesson, and sent a team of operatives to follow them to their hideout. The ensuing gun battle left the hideout in flames and most of the original gangers dead. Only Slash-and-Burn, the gang’s current leader, and two others survived. After that, Slash decided to make all corporations pay for what he considered to be Renraku’s misdeed, and opened the gang to anyone willing to take on the corps. As a result the Halloweeners claim the greatest racial diversity of any other local gang. Halloweener colors are orange and black, typically black clothing with orange bandannas tied around the arms, legs and neck. Their symbol is a jack o’ lantern against a fiery background. befitting Slash’s pyromania. The gangers wear gaudy Halloween masks while committing crimes. Slash wears various masks all the time to conceal the terrible burn scars on his face and neck.
