|Turner, Harvest and Ramirez
Gang Id: 27845
Once a respected Mercenary outfit, the offices of Turner, Harvest and Ramirez hadnt been busy with customers for some time.
The relatives of the original trio had inherited the business after THRs fatal last contract, but unfortunately werent made of the same stuff as their parents.
Harvest put her share up for sale, snapped up by Nathan Andrus. Hed been lying in intensive care when the last of his former gang, the Cockney Rebels, had bitten the dust.
Andrus left hospital with a patchwork of scars and found himself as sole owner of the gangs assets. There was one thing he knew how to do, so the buy-in to THR seemed to good an opportunity to pass up.
With Andrus experience, THR would put itself back on the map in Somerset.
Recruitment started with simple rules - death races and combat tournaments until hospitalised would gain a young hopeful the status of gang member.
The first injury gets you in, the last injury gets you out.
The gang barely made ends meet, running a spray shop, death racing and trading rifles as mercenary contracts were few and far between. Bad luck seemed to follow them, slavers always seeming to know where and when THR were running escorts.
Things came to a head when Andrus was assassinated during a death race - his car sieved with bullets long after his resignation. In the same week an escort run went sideways; half the gang were dead, hospitalised or fighting for their lives in the pit.
Leaders rose and fell, Ronnie Slaughter and Erin 9mm were the two most notable, but THRs suspiciously bad luck continued.
An ex pit hand, Herb Bongiorno, used his connections to get the gang into the Deathrace Mafia.
Herb started forging connections with the raiders and slavers too - nothing too pally but keeping them even to open up trade and delivery options.
Information flowed as well as vehicles and weapons - it turned out a cartel of bounty hunters had dealt with the competition by ordering the hit on Andrus and setting up the ambushes.
Herb and the original gangers who had made the long journey back from Firelight decided to change tack and renamed themselves the Ded-Hedz - the skulls to remember their fallen comrades.
The Ded-Hedz would focus on trading the Badlands Gateway corridor, and sweep out of the Northern towns to retrieve the blood debt from the Bounty Hunter cartel.
