Year of the Tiger
The Black Knives are a local gang, run and operating within the shadows. With constantly shifting headquarters and a remarkably flexible leadership, the gang has grown to a city wide power in only a few short years. Unfortunately, they also quickly gained enemies, among them Lord Garrett who hired a band of mercenaries to cause trouble among them.
They did this very successfully, accidentally accessing one of the ancient Power Fonts and destroying about half of their organization. The remaining primary leader, Aisha, managed to escape, and has been defending her gang against the infiltrators from the outside and the inevitable traitors from within. She has done quite well, and the gang is solid again, enough that she felt comfortable announcing candidacy for Boss.
