"The Coronados may have been slime, but they were my family, you bastard. You killed them over a scrap of turf they only cared about because it was there home since they were kids. Well, muchacho, it's payback time..."
Once upon a time, you were just a common thug: hanging out with your buddies, getting drunk, racing motorcycles, committing the occasional petty theft...nothing serious, really. The only time you ever really hurt somebody was during the turf wars, when the rival neighborhood gangs collided in a brief and bloody symphony of carnage.
But then the triads moved in, and wanted control of your streets...and killed all of your friends to get that control. Now your dead friends cry out for vengeance, and, as the only one left, you don't really have any choice but to oblige...
On the other hand, maybe you were a serious gangster, working for the triads. Gangsters turn on each other all the time, but this time they went too far; killing your friends, or even setting you up to take a big fall to keep the cops off of their backs. You differ from the Reformed Gangster in that you are NOT exactly one of the good guys, but, at the moment, you share a common enemy with them. Perhaps there is redemption in your future, perhaps not. You don't care. The one thing in your future that IS certain, is blood.
