Character Name: Spade Slick
Affiliation: The Midnight Crew
Personality: Slick is, to say the least, criminally insane. Emphasis on the "criminal" part.
He likes to think of himself as strictly black and white on his beliefs. Either he wants to do something or doesn't; he is against something or for it. There is no neutral for him. He makes decisions based on this stark duality almost immediately upon reaching a crossroads; perhaps too quickly. Indeed, his actions often come across as not thought out, because they usually aren't.
Slick is very tempermental and action-oriented. It doesn't take much to throw him off the deep end, and once off the end, he doesn't get back on it very quickly. He tends to show his feelings through actions than words, and these actions usually end up in somebody dying. He tends to deal with all of his problems by stabbing or shooting them, and any problem not solved by this just further irritates him.
That is not to say he is some aggressive insta-stab person. His job requires too much finesse for such a brute, especially in a leader position. And he is much too good at his job for such foolishness. He almost always has a plan of action, and while he doesn't usually follow it himself, he gets very angry when his teammates don't follow said plan. In fact, almost everything gets him angry for some reason for another.
He doesn't talk about his past, to anyone, at all.
It is important to remember that Slick is literally insane. He is murderous and aggressive, and yet at the same time is constructive and has goals. He doesn't just mindlessly kill people or ruin things - he works towards his goal. It's just that anything in his way must be annihilated quickly and ruthlessly.
One of Slick's many instabilities are his multiple personality disorder. He has many names for himself, and has even forgot his birth name. Well, he says he has forgotten it - he most likely still knows it, but doesn't like sharing it. His most commonly used persona is the eponymous Spades Slick - it is by this name that the Midnight Crew know him and refer to him by. He also sometimes goes by the jester Jack, no last name. Jack covorts around the city in brightly colored robes, but at the end of his "adventures", the robes always end up blood-red.
Another identity Spades likes to use is a masked vigilante named the Sovereign Slayer. He has a penchant for murdering police officers and using their uniforms to get inside undercover squads and, well, slay them. IT is how Spades keeps spies and moles out of the Midnight Crew. Many consider the Slayer to simply be an underground myth; they are very wrong.
Spades is, all in all, an unbalanced, mostly unpredictable gangster. His entire Crew both fear and respect him, and that is just the way he likes it.
Biography: Born in Chicago, Spades was always a...disturbed child. He didn't play well with other children, that much can be seen from the various fights he had every week. The rest of his school career went much like this before he was expelled from high school as a senior. Shortly after that, his high school "accidentally" burned to the ground, and even shorter after that, his parents were murdered in another "accident gone wrong". The next day, he disappeared from the city.
5 years later, he appeared back up in New York, shedding his old name and taking on Spades Slick as his title. He quickly grew in notoriety in the criminal underworld, and managed to overthrow the entire infamous Midnight Crew in a matter of months. He slaughtered all of its former members and refilled it withnew members he recruited from the street, leading it for his own personal reasons. He set his sights on perpetually battling a rival street gang, The Felt, for reasons unknown.
