AKA "KID PHANTOM"
This guy’s got a chip on his shoulder, but at least he’s monetizing it. After the death of his parents, Jake Paladino became a “ditch kid”, aka an orphan outcast in Draco society, growing up in the rough hustle culture of the lower Tower Cities. As an adult, he has claw-and-fanged his way into becoming a minor kush grifter. He seizes opportunities neglected by established kush gangs and uses the rewards to look out for his own people on Level 777.
Despite, or because of, his tragic upbringing, Paladino is one of the most reckless and ambitious gangsters on the planet. Kind of a loser, but also kind of cool, he’s the type of guy who acts like he’s in on the joke, and the joke’s on you. But no orphan of murder goes long without a plan for revenge—and Kid Phantom is no exception.
