Here's a crazy idea: Has anyone ever thought of backstories and the like for the characters depicted in the game?

For example, What were the circumstances that led to "Lucky Lucy" Ano's rise to power? Did she have help? What is her family like? Does she have any hobbies? Does she have any enemies of note?, etc.

Please respond with your ideas!

I don't know how dark you want to go with this, but...
After a dark mysterious kittenhood (childhood), mostly unknown because she doesn't ever talk about it, she was ripped away from her mother. After several years in the city pound, she was eventually adopted by a very loving family. Her human family loved cats and cared for her and their other cats with great love and affection. One day while at home playing with her cat toys in the bedroom she heard a big loud bang that came from the other room. She crawled into the room where her family had been enjoying an evening together. The first thing she saw was the door had been broken in and he family had been brutally murdered. She was alone again and began roaming the streets getting into fights just to eat from day to day. Fighting off stray cats for left over scraps and the occasional milk the old lady in the neighborhood would leave out, Lucky has really made a name for herself and created a bad reputation.

She now roams the streets of each of the created cities in Mob Town trying to exact revenge on what mobster family or families were responsible for murdering her family.

How about the leader of the Law? Who might that be?

An another take to Lucy's possible background:
Lucy "Lucky" Ano was a member of one of the yakuza families. Her father was a well-known yakuza with connections even to the USA.
One day he was betrayed by his trusted fellows which lead to losing the major footing in Japan. With his daughter Lucy, he was forced to flee to the USA. They were lucky to arrive there safely. Within a year after the incident, the father died and Lucy inherited his US part of the organization.

Umm... Well, how about we talk about certain crimes she and her "Family" might have pulled?

Y'know, master crimes that marked her rise to power in the cities.

Also, are there any landmarks she might control, any cities she's visited, and any professionals she's hired?

It appears to be doesn't it. I guess I never really thought about the backstory too much. I like the idea of her starting out as a stray, then slowly clawing her way to the top. I see lots of well organized money laundering and possibly a catnip supply line

I'd say it's more dormant while we focus on Ghosts Love Candy. Future expansions will actually delve more into Mob Boss backgrounds (along with giving unique abilities to each Mob Boss).

I'll give these a re-read over the next few days.

"Catnip supply line"? What's that mean, I wonder?

Is "catnip" like drugs for cats, in this case?

I would wager so, and that Lucy has her paws in just about everything else in town, too. (Or is at least trying to.) One frustration would be there really isn't an equivalent for dogs, so it makes it harder to move into those parts of town.

Any ideas for who the dogs are (y'know... the Law?)?

And... I've apparently killed this topic again.
