Red Hot Nukes
Membership: Around 100.
Type of Gang: Go Gang
Turf: Hollywood along Route 202.
The Red Hot Nukes are a dwarf go-gang operating out of Hollywood along Route 202. They consider themselves more of a neighborhood association than a gang. Their leader, Grinder, is an African-American dwarf who organized the gang after he retired from a short shadowrunning career. The gang’s colors are gray and red, along with an ever-present baseball cap. Their symbol is a mushroom cloud, which commemorates both their name and their skill with explosives. If it goes boom, the Nukes know how to build it, use it and disarm it. In fact, the gang’s initiation ritual involves disarming a bomb built by Grinder. No one gets a second chance.
