Founded by Mexican foreign workers who were uprooted from their native region to work in Montréal, the Muertos are a massive gang who lord over the district of Greater Griffintown and who basically rule the Griffintown Complex, an unfinished megabuilding on the northern shore of the Lachine Canal. The Muertos are an ethnic gang who protect the latino communities within their turf. Muertos are immediately identifiable through their religious or Dia de Muertos themed tattoos, including flowers and skulls, but their most distinguishing feature is their “calaveras”, armored face masks which are painted and modified to evoke neon sugar skulls.
The majority of Muertos are of Mexican heritage, but the gang does not disallow other ethnic groups from joining, as long as they integrate with their Mexican cultural practices. Muertos celebrate many Mexican holidays and customs as a way to preserve their stolen culture. The Muertos ensure that the SPVM never unjustly attacks their community, often through violent retribution.
The Muertos are deeply embedded in the Greater Griffintown area as well as most of the Sud-Ouest. Most of the bars and nightclubs of Greater Griffintown are fronts for the Muertos. Their main sources of revenue are drug trafficking, weapon and cyberware smuggling and vehicle theft.
The Muertos exert influence from the Griffintown Complex, a self-contained Combat Zone which they mostly control, through which they smuggle foreign weapons, cyberware and drugs. The explosive rise of the Muertos on the gang stage has led many to believe that they are being backed and supplied by Latin American Cartels.
Los Muertos are a community protection gang who feel a great responsibility to protect their own from most of Montréal’s powers, including cops and corporations.
They do not automatically reject those who are not from their community but will always act distant and remain suspicious and distrustful. In other words, Muertos might be warm and friendly, but they’ll always keep you at an arm’s length.
Muertos enjoy it when you address them in Spanish and when you respect their culture and faith. They harbour a sense of community for family and friends and will typically avoid harming those of their own community unless it becomes absolutely necessary. They protect each other above all else: while self-interested Muertos exist, they know better than to directly act on their impulses. All of Los Muertos’ criminal activities are directed against those outside of the community of the Griffintown Complex.
“Calaveras”, the neon ballistic facemasks they wear, are the most prized possession of each Muertos. Wearing it while doing work for the gang is a privilege and an essential part of being a Muertos. The calaveras of dead Muertos are preserved as mementos by the gang. Stealing a calavera is a bad idea: Muertos will find you and they will get it back.
A mexican man in his fifties with coifed salt and pepper hair. Often wears nondescript buttoned-up shirts and a white cowboy hat. Never seen without his massive Pre-Collapse pistol: a white handcannon with engraved flowers. Half his face was horribly burned during the Muertos Riots. He chose to preserve some of the scars as a reminder of what his Muertos stand to lose if they fail to stick together.
Always threateningly calm, the Padre of Los Muertos garners respect by listening to his community… and by ordering violence against those that would threaten it.
An ex-edgerunner young latina woman with a chromed purple cyberarm. Her other arm is adorned with a huge tattoo of a sugar skull. Wears streetwear fasion, often tank tops and olive cargo pants. Smokes real cigarettes whenever possible.
She is the fixer edgerunners have to talk to when they want to interface with Muertos resources. Dismissive with outsiders, runners have to prove themselves before she actually hears them out.
A handsome, young american man whose right arm is tattooed pitch black with a light tattoo of glowing bones. Wears black leathers and a golden cross earring. Never seen without his trusty Militech Ronin. Trying really hard to lose the gringo accent.
A newcomer to the city, Flores was saved by Los Muertos. He has since dedicated his life to the gang. Friendly, chatty and quick-witted. He knows his way around the gang and is sure to get his calavera soon.
