There seems to be a criminal 'guild', actually.
The criminals are NPCs. In my experience with anything RP related as well as stuff like Wakfu, whenever a criminal faction is introduced everyone flocks to that and ends up so that most everyone are criminals. I'd rather prevent that by simply making criminals quest objectives rather than having a group of people simply going around trying to PK or PMD's equivalent.I read that they were NPCs and hadn't seen anything past that, but maybe I missed something.
I immediately picture Mr. Grin as a Banette.I thought about criminals, and decided I was going to be edgelore supreme. I made a group of NPCs. Sort of a big bad Enemy "Guild" as it were.
The Grin Gang is an Organization of like minded pokemon who believe rules and laws don't apply to them. They take what they want, they kill what they want, and the do whatever the hell they want. On the surface they just look like a bunch of Thugs beating weaker pokemon up for their cash. But that's only a Charade.
The Grin Gang runs the black market. Its contraband or illegal? They got it. They often sell their rare and illegal items for High Prices, making a massive profit off of something no one should have. Its easy to spot a gang Member. They all wear black hats, wear sunglasses, sometimes the higher ups even wear Suits, if their body will permit it.
No one really knows much about the Grin Gang's Origins, or why it started, but the owner is well known. A gengar by the name of Mr. Grin runs the entire Criminal Organization. He gives out the jobs he needs done, and his goons go and do it for him. It was said that before he became what he is, he had been a friendly Clefable that ran an orphanage of some sort. That was until said Orphanage burned down.
Mr.Grin himself is the head honcho, the big man in charge. He always wears a suit, his hat, a small pair of glasses, and he walks about with a cane, that just may be a sword in disguise. When speaking with Customers he's soft spoken, like a kind elderly old man, But when real business comes around he gets mean.
The Grin Gang Got their name from their victims. Whenever someone was found after being attacked by the Grin Gang, they'd have a permanent smile affixed on their face. No one truly knows why...
So there you go. Edgelord pokemon group. Have fun with that shiyet.
