Identical twins, they have paid informants scattered all over the ‘Verse, who send word of “sweet deals”—such as the arrival of unguarded payroll in a small town bank. The twins then hire folk who aren’t too picky about the kind of job they take to perform heists, smuggling operations, or whatever the deal happens to be. The twins’ cut varies, depending on what they think they
can get away with. Their HQ is a bar known as the Maidenhead on Beaumonde.
The crew of Shenmue first came to the twins’ attention when Worth Evans and Jonah Rothsay turned what was supposed to be a simple delivery job for one of their local rivals on Beaumonde, the Davies Brothers, into a bloodbath, clearing the way for Fanty and Mingo to take over the dead gangsters’ pachinko parlour. Then later, when they had hired a pirate named Hagan to steal a payload out from under rival Badger’s nose, it was the crew of Shenmue who ended up stealing the payload back from them. The crew’s moxie, coupled with the fact that two of their number had inadvertently assisted the twins by eliminating the Davies brothers, impressed the twins, and they hired the crew to take care of another problem they were having – a fugitive named Whitaker.
