Romano Abaducci
A mafia stooge born and bred, Romano (roam-AHN-oh) Abaducci
(AB-ad-oochie) is outfitted with the most advanced cybernetics the mob
could get.
Rumours of his abilities, many clearly untrue, abound. They say
he stands six -- no, _seven_ feet tall, with rippling muscles that make
his arms as thick as bowling balls. They say he can see in total
darkness, can never be suprised, is invisible to all but his chosen
victims, and has never missed a shot -- when he has to shoot. Its said in
hushed whispers, after the children have gone to bed, that The Great
Abaducci can knock out the stronges samaurai with the force of his glare,
and has killed more men with his spittle than the entire U.C.A.S. armed
forces combined!
Nobody has ever known him by his real name and lived except the
Don and his current favorite teenaged whore. So far as U.C.A.S.
intellegence organizations have been able to discover, he's never kept the
same prostitute for more than a few months (after which he usually kills
her.) But that doesn't stop them from trying to use that against him. It
also doesn't stop many girls from hoping he's their next trick -- his
sexual prowess is also lauded by many rumours.
If the press ever got wind that government intellegence
organizations were behind many of the "classier" teen prostitution rings
in otherwise Mafia-controlled areas, heads would roll. This is, of
course, why the leaders of the Mafia have decided to tolerate such rings
in their territory.
Romano Abaducci will never be anybody's contact, and has no
buddies. The only reason a P.C. would meet him would be if they're trying
to hit the same person, or if the P.C. is being hit (which would amount to
the same thing, really. The Great Abaducci likes to leave no traces.)
