The Spans is a thrill gang which will mess up anyone who crosses them. It has a restricted membership, it's only for those who are suicidal enough to attempt the "blood initiation".
The gang is Portland's oldest thrill-gang, which is also a theme gang. It's a gang of complete psychopaths whose idea of fun is pillaging, murdering, and terrorizing random civilians, sometimes going as far as dismembering their victims.
All of them are scarecrow-thin and gaunt, wearing elaborate AR and physical costumes making them look like shambling zombies. Members have undergone extensive augmentation with muscle replacement, fang implants, hand razors, digestive expansion, and adrenal pump.
