Are u sure on this.... IMHO u cannot play LotP on Torgo because he is a
Ganger Leader. LotP sez play on a Ganger. Along the same thought,
switchblade does not stay on him if played as a special.
(Pls comment on this....)

The initiation : "Each Runner at the end of shadowrun is considered a Ganger
in addition...." ie x profession AND ganger.If u make Torgo a ganger(Torgo .
Ganger and Ganger Leader)... Then try to give him LotP he will become
(Torgo.Ganger and Ganger Leader and Ganger Leader).(Users of Venn Diagram
note the 3 are seperate entities although Ganger Leader and Ganger Leader
are equivilent in value) There are still 2 Ganger Leaders in play...
Although they are the same runner.....

The only way I see to get LotP on Torgo is to somehow remove his 1st ganger
leader trait and make him a ganger (not in any order)
