Gang of Business Thugs
The Cutters are one of the largest gangs in North America.
They trace their origins to a gang in Los Angeles in 1980s. They have chapters in major cities, and in 2054 were one of the largest (second largest) gangs in Seattle, after the Ancients and before the Tigers (a gang affiliated with the Eighty Eights triad). A biological warfare agent incident decimated the Seattle branch of the Cutters in 2054. Since then they have been slowly rebuilding their strength.
**Recently the cutters have aligned with the vory and are modelling more of their ‘enterprises’ after the organization.
Their main area of operations is Downtown.
Compared to other gangs, Cutters organizational structure is relatively sophisticated and business like. They tend to care more about profit than pure reputation, and most of their actions will be carried out only after a cost-vs-profit analysis.
