"We do what we must," Mother always said, back when we were skulking around the wharves and warehouses at the bottom end of Port Alkarief. For her, that meant letting men do disgusting things to her, and giving half of what they paid her to Jimon so that he had the exclusive right to beat her.

If you've ever wondered where the image I use as my icon on other systems comes from, here it is. My Official Team Photo from BattleBots Season 5.0 in 2002. This is "Team Mauser" and version 2 of the Superheavyweight "Strike Terror". My foot is right there on the weak spot that cost me the first fight against Pro-Am.
