Rhed Hehryng

You've seen it everyday: a punk with tatoos, cyber, attitude, guns. The
difference: most punks aren't in their mid-forties and going grey Rhed Hehryng
is. Rhed has all the trappings of a basic street samuri, which he bought with
his life savings from working for the corp as a desk jockey. One day, the
mindless drudgery of his job finally got to him, and he took the mid-twentieth
centruy band Jefferson Airplane's words to heart[literally, he had them tatooed
in big letters across his chest]: "One generation got old/another generation
got soul/volunteers of America/start a revolution." He's been out on the streets
doing his little bit for anarchy since.
