Halfling Street Operator

Quotes:"Shortstuff huh, you won't be laughin' with your guts splattered across
the wall."

" I'm a pro, I got the skills and contacts you need . . . If I didn't, I
wouldn't be talkin' to you right now"

"References ?!?!? You know my rep, otherwise you wouldn't be here -- so lets
deal !"

"Money and Power, thats the only thing the street respects, thats why I take
payment in triple A scrip or triple A favors . . . the chioce is yours"

Commentary: Always the smallest, he attracted bullies that tried to prey
on him. Fights and beatings became as common as the chipheads in his
neighborhood. But it didn't break him. Instead he became tough, ruthless,
and cunning. He came to understand the nature of the streets. A flying
kick to the groin and elbow to the face of the local bully did wonders
for his rep. Pretty soon even the ork bullies gave him respect. But it
wasn't enough - he wanted power too. Pretty soon he was hustling the
streets, using gangs and lowlifes. He found out that he had a talent for
street ops. He decided that the local scene was just to small, he moved
on to the Real Action - where the major operators were - The Shadowworld.
