People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid.
Born to a drug dealer father who was killed when I was three, and a drug addict mother who’d sell me for a score of heroin only to sell her body to get me back, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their minds five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is conforming to society's standards, and I love my own personal chaos.
My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what it was, because she left. And in the years that followed, I became everything society fears--a madman.
I know I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want.
Women get off on the power I exude, but in the back of my mind, I see Reina’s face. And though I don’t care if I ever see her again, I can’t help but wonder what made her disappear in the first place.
I have a reputation in this city. They say I’m crazy for stealing from the police. They call me insane for robbing Philadelphia’s most secure banks. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my biggest enemy--the boss of the Philadelphia mob.
It’s not just about power anymore. It’s no longer about respect. No, this is personal now.
Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and I’m about to burn the world to the ground.
