Ex-leader of The Crimson Crush
RIP, Stunballed then Headshotted.
An Orc Shaman, Boots was working with Tetslo the Naga, backed by the Triads, to import Shade into Seattle. He was also using the awakened properties of Shade to boost recruitment into The Crimson Crush, lending it a mystical legitimacy.
The runners killed him while he was attempting to escape the Tacoma Shade importing facility.
Boots was promptly killed before revealing any of his past.
