At some point, Vorne hired a kid by the name of Deral Reiko who eventually became Vorne's protegee and then his ruthless minion, expert in tracking information. Eventually Reiko began a career of his own, but even then, sometimes, Vorne hired him on a case-by-case basis.
His policy centered on transactions, caring little about the goods or services involved, but having a great interest in the economic profit. As he had to deal with several traders unable to pay him back, Vorne created an "organ donation policy" for these people: He could forget the debts in exchange for some of the debtor's internal organs, with the more important organs paying more credits. In highly-polluted Reuss VIII, organs were a valuable good. This was a dangerous choice because Vorne's surgeons were everything but careful but, as the alternative meant facing some of Vorne's thugs, many debtors opted to try cybernetic replacements.
Gunrunner Tiv "Poke" Pocarno, owner of the badly-maintained Suwantek Systems TL-1800 Transport Broken 'Spanner, asked Vorne for a loan he intended to return after a successful smuggling run off Rampa. Pocarno failed to comply and died because of Vorne's organ donation policy. Vorne then requisitioned and repaired Pocarno's ship, although the 'Spanner still required expensive maintenance.
Personality and traitsEdit
Vorne maintained he was not vain about his appearance, and indeed he did not use clothes of his size. He used a breath mask anytime he had to meet another person or to be outdoors, even if he was not in Reuss VIII.
