Gangs

Biters

  • An association of three or more individuals;
  • Whose members collectively identify themselves by adopting a group identity, which they use to create an atmosphere of fear or intimidation, frequently by employing one or more of the following: a common name, slogan, identifying sign, symbol, tattoo or other physical marking, style or color of clothing, hairstyle, hand sign or graffiti;
  • Whose purpose in part is to engage in criminal activity and which uses violence or intimidation to further its criminal objectives.
Gangs play a significant role in Tales of Urban horror, most notably the Cobalts and the Crimsons who are at war.
The members are not so easily defined, although there are participants in each group that are malicious, others are conflicted,  questioning their affiliation.
