The Chain is a new and relatively dangerous gang in Funky City. It is dangerous not due to its size or wealth, but because of the near fanatical loyalty its members have to its leader: Chai. Chai is a young, extremely charismatic, and utterly ruthless leader, who found it easy to gather other criminals, and several people who were not previously criminals, and invoke fanatical loyalty in them. With this small group he entered the underworld and has been reasonably successful, mostly in the arms business and in extortion and assassinations. Chai is intelligent enough to keep them off the radar, but now with the drug war and disruption it's causing, even though Chai is not directly linked to drugs, he is planning on using the chaos to spread his own plans, at least in part by 'eliminating the competition'.
The group that follows Chai usually calls itself 'The Chain' with an emphasis on the 'Chai', or more rarely - and usually only in near religious fervor - the 'Heralds of Chaos'. Every member of 'The Chain' has a chain necklace, and tends to dress in black and spike their hair. Their weapon of choice is a long barbed chain with a hook at the end, although they usually use the weapons they deal in, which tend to be better than the average gang's arsenal.
