AUTUMN BLADE

Autumn Blade is a criminal arms dealing syndicate run out of Night City.  Only its customers and a select few others even know of its existence.  Built from the ashes of Yakuza treachery this organization has grown from a small street operation to an international business in the short span of  7 years.  Autumn Blade works alongside, but is not affiliated with, the Yakuza, the Tongs, and the Triads.
The organization has two primary agendas.  The first is the international black market sale of arms and munitions, and it is an interest in which they excel.  Autumn Blade's reputation for quality, price, and anonymity is unmatched anywhere in the United States or in the Orient.  Generally only dealing in high quality or military weaponry it has been said that NOTHING is unattainable to the Autumn Blade.  For the right fee the organization will procure anything, from the newest Malorian handgun to military aircraft.  In fact Autumn Blade controls the arms trade for the west coast and is growing in power every day.
The second means of income for Autumn Blade is its special service teams.  The syndicate will contract out teams for any number of assignments from personal security to black ops.  The operatives of Autumn Blade are masters in their field but for the sake of the organizations anonymity all personnel are kept under a low profile.  So while many are the top in there professions few have a reputation at all.
Anonymity is the number one concern of Autumn Blade and all business dealings come second to it.  On rare occasions multi-million dollar deals have been abandoned on a hunch.  Only the most trusted clients meet with the heads of Autumn Blade personally and many  never know who they are dealing with at all.  One of many faceless representatives will approach a prospective client, usually the representative has no idea of his employer and only after a several deals have been successfully closed and background checks run on the client will he ever meet with the head of the organization.  However whenever a deal is made whether for an arms or special
services a demonstration will always be provided as well as a gift.
In addition to the sale of weapons and special services Autumn Blade also has criminal dealings in the Asian community such as prostitution, the fencing of stolen goods and gambling, these are minor interests of Autumn Blade and the organization is very careful not to cross boundaries when it comes to these areas of business.  The organization also dabbles lightly in the drug trade, opium, hash, and marijuana only though, and inside the organization there is strict intolerance policy towards anything harder.  In addition to the criminal aspect, Autumn Blade also controls many legitimate businesses,  the largest is Nakajimo Imports.  Restaurants, night clubs, grocery stores,Wake Up records and Mama Sifu and Papa Sensei's school of martial arts are all owned by Autumn Blade.  The subsidiary branches of the organization be they legal or otherwise generally have no idea they are affiliated and are carefully positioned so as not to intrude on anyone else's territory.  The legal subsidiaries serve not only as an extra source of income but also as a front for money laundering.
The final secret to Autumn Blades success and anonymity is information.  The head of the organization has an uncanny ability to find dirt on anyone and has powerful contacts all over the world.  From top ranking military officers and government officials, to heads of corporations.  Information and favors have paved the way for Autumn Blades empire.  In Night City the organization is almost all knowing and very little escapes its watchful eye.
Even though the organization is based in Night City it takes very little interest in affairs of state unless it concerns Autumn Blade directly.  Although they make sure to stay abreast of all current developments utilizing any and all chances that arise to further  its own interests.
