The Harlequins are a group of six runners who gained their name after the CityBank Ltd
Massacre. I will submit detils on them and their neighbourhood, as well as some places for
runners to hang out.

Characters (The Harlequins)
The Harelquins commited one of the most (in)famous bank robberies in Seattle
in February '55. The staff at _CityBank Ltd_ were going about their usual
routine when a group of five men burst in, and a Troll Sam let loose with
his Uzi, cutting the guard down before he could even act.
Ordering everyone to lie on the floor, another of the gang dressed in white
overalls and wearing a black 'Harlequins' mask, pointed his shotgun at a
pregnant woman and ordered the manager to open the safe. Upon recieving a
negative answer he blasted the woman at point blank range, drew a pistol and
shot the bank clerk with an explosive round.
the scrip machines lining the walls open, and the others filled their bags
as full as possible.
By this time the manager had opened the safe and the man in white proceeded
to kneecap him for, "all the trouble you caused." Whilst the rest ransacked t
opped it onto the floor, discarding his overalls to reveal black clothes under
other shot every surviving customer by shooting them in the head.
Outside, the Rigger member of the gang had a hunter/spotter drone waiting
to fly the scrip and credsticks away, whilst the rest of the gang sped off
into the traffic on bikes, disappearing into the sprawl. The whole operation
took three minutes.
Although a small firm, _CityBank Ltd_ has offered a =Y= 50 000 reward to
anyone with information leading to a successful arrest and prosecution and
=Y= 150 000 to anyone who can bring in the gang themselves.

Following this history will be an outline of the men and people involved.
