5 Minutes to Midnight
Fixer and Negotiator of the Olde Aurora Sprawl
If there’s one person who’s learned to deal with a shitty hand it’s Leo Holmes. Born to a Sprawl-Walker and seedy politician, Leo was left to fend for himself at a young age when his mother succumbed to Immersion sickness. Already a talented negotiator at the tender age of 15, Leo displayed a gift for blackmail, which he used to catch his dad in the balls. No one wants an elicit affair to become public, especially when you’re a United Moralist party spokesperson and father to an illegitimate son of a hooker. The hush money he collected from dear old dad helped him set up shop in the sprawl. It also taught him an important lesson about doing business when his dad’s goon squad came and fucked him up in order to keep him out of the picture for good. Don’t start something if you don’t intend to finish it. So Leo put 6 slugs in the old man and got a reputation for giving as good as he got, or even a little better.
