Guest Marlon Phoenix Posted December 8, 2014 Share Posted December 8, 2014 (edited) Background During an antag round about ~1 week ago, I had Houssam siphon 150k from the station accounts, withdraw 100k and long story short he walked out with 50k credits with all the blame pinned on someone else. (I was investigated IC'ly for it for ages too, which was nerve-wracking, but I covered my tracks well save the small clues I laid around for security.) I decided to make that event canon, and since then sort of stumbled into making the Jawdats a mafyia family, and decided to just roll with it. Houssam spent 20k to purchase his sister, Buthaynah, a new life. (Long story short for that: She participated in the revolt during the cat-event, and was framed for killing a police officer as a form of NT taking Houssam's loyalty hostage.) The rest of the money is being invested, and Houssam has decided to do two things: 1) Ensure the continued survival and safety of the Jawdat family. 2) Ensure financial security for the Jawdat family. To do this, he has abandoned his plans (dream, almost) of joining the ranks of CCIA to avoid the loyalty implants, and has started using his mild influence and allies to slowly build up a small-scale white collar crime ring. He has a few retainers, and by his relationship with Nur he has the Volkov brothers on his side as well. Almost all of this spawned from IC events, and post-round conversations about what the characters do once they leave Odin.

Houssam is having to balance the slowly growing levels of violence necessary to achieve his two goals (as is inherent in such a business) with the desire to remain as non-violent as possible. (Also Ahdomai is a stalin-state with an active revolt on slow burn, so muscle is necessary to keep his stuff and relatives safe there.) I decided to include others in the fun on the actual Jawdat family - there's three direct relatives, and an assumed large group of cousins with a handful of those being important/loved/stupid enough to benefit or need some ties to the Family. What this would entail, IC, is basically small-scale corruption where acceptable. Friends with the family? No paperwork! Free drinks! A trusted friend! Guaranteed protection, be it legal or physical! Not only that, but get paid for your extra work off the books! Heck, maybe a few gifts just to show how much the Family appreciates you! Jawdat family rules For peeps who play Jawdats themselves, this would be the same. If you want to be a Jawdat, lemme know in a post here. You just gotta know these things: 1) No matter how much you fight or disagree, family is the most important thing. Honour is an extremely close second. 2) Jawdats frown upon dating other species. It's tolerated, but expect to be one of 'those' relatives. 3) Throwing "Do you know who my [x] is?" is stupid, and risks everyone for your ego. You'd get smacked aside the head at best or disowned at worst. We have people in our pockets, and they remain in our pockets because their loyalty to us doesn't risk their careers by being namedropped by every drunk Jawdat arrested for bashing in a man's face. 4) People who work for us do it because Jawdats are known to pay well and be trustworthy when it counts. You can be an asshole relative, but show respect to the retainers. Feel free to be total bitches to unimportant plebs, though. 5) No excessive violence (in canon rounds). We have the Volkov Brothers and other retainers to get their hands dirty. Houssam/Integra's power is enough to smudge a few records here and there or turn a judge, but if you act like Vittorio expect little to be done to help you. (TL;DR don't be a snowflake, that's no fun for anyone) And IDK what else. Tytos, you've watched The Godfather a bunch. Ideas? Edited December 9, 2014 by Marlon Phoenix Quote Link to comment
