The Crimson Crush are one of Seattle's oldest gangs, emerging out of the Night of Rage in 2039. It is one of Seattle's most violent gangs, defending their turf from all threats, especially human ones. They hold one of the largest turfs in the Barrens, which counts among the most stressed and most stable of gang turfs.
The ork gang has recently started letting Trolls and human Ork-posers into the gang. Members can be found armed with weapons such as heavy pistols and forearm snap blades, and outfitted with armor (e.g. armored vest).
It considers the part of the Redmond Barrens known as Touristville (near 228th Avenue) to be their turf. They wear red leathers and operate as "protectors" of the Orks residents and since the Crash 2.0 also of all other residents. During the Crash they quelled the riots in their territory and provided the people with food, water, and medicine. Which they had "liberated" (seized from warehouses and convoys) when most transportation ceased to operate. They are for all intents and purposes the closest thing the community has to a "neighborhood watch" and function as a sort of law enforcement.
The gang taxes the neighborhood heavily, but also provides for those in it's territory. They are also into a bit of street-level dealing of illegal drugs and the occasional smuggling. They do not trust the Unions, but they seem to have obtained many new BTL chips from the Triads. The "Kong-Chips" sell like hotcakes, to the great displeasure of the Mafia and the Yakuza.
The gang is known for provoking clashes with human gangs that are aligned with Humanis or the Human Nation. In the course of the Tempo-Drug War in the spring of 2071, the First Nation moved its activities from the eastern Everett to Redmond inevitably fighting with the Crimson Crush.
