Bio: His name is Kentucky and that’s what they call this man from the Blue Grass State; but for this adept there is more to the story than just a name, he has been in the game for quite sometime and has made some serious waves in the world of the criminal elite as he has caused many changes and influenced many of both sides of the coin from lawmakers to outlaws and for Kentucky this is all just part of days work. Whiskey as they also call him for his signature drink that he distils himself deep within the Kentucky wilderness and this runner can always be seen drinking his namesake drink when relaxing.
Kentucky earned his moniker during the Civil War where he worked as a special agent for the Union of the UCAS against the Confederate Forces that where invading his home state from Tennessee; for Mansfield this was a modern day Hatfield’s vs the McCoy’s but he had a more sinister reason for his involvement in the war. He had heavy stock in the Whiskey industry in Kentucky and being a Land Baron he stood to gain a significant foothold within the rival Tennessee’s Whiskey industry if the war went the way of the UCAS over the Confederates. Money was his motivator and with his heartless cunning and faithless stare he was able to infiltrate the south and cause significant damage as a saboteur and for this he was well rewarded; the UCAS mistakenly thought they had limitless funds and would reward anyone who would do there dirty work during the Civil War figuring they could just absorb the Confederacy and tax the rebels to oblivion; well this is where the failed and eventually it would cause them more than just the war as the UCAS was not prepared to deal with the Confederate elite and those working behind the scenes such as the Jamestowns and Polaroid and so the stage was set for the greatest betrayal the UCAS could ever suffer during those tragic early days.
Kentucky as we said prior was guided by greed and profit nothing more, he wanted to further increase his profit margin and he didn’t care what he had to do to gain a further choke hold on the Whiskey industry. At this time in his life he was nothing more than a Corporate CEO and retired solider so when the war broke out he had the skill set the UCAS needed and quickly reinstated his commission and gave him a hefty promotion as long as he did their dirty work; Kentucky was more than happy to oblige as he would see his profits rise, promises of further land grab and a hostile corporate takeover; not to mention enough old world money that it could fill a corn silo. For Kentucky this was enough to step out of the boardroom and enter the battlefield as a General of Special Operations and he would begin his reign of terror onto the Confederate people especially those from Tennessee; though there was a hitch in the UCAS’s plan and that was Kentucky’s own greed and his longing for even more money and power, this hitch would come in the form of Virginia native Oliver Jamestown the Godfather of the entire Jamestown family and well the one thing we know about the Jamestowns is they have more money and influence than God and for Kentucky that was very appealing.
Oliver would approach Brook one day early in the war after he was celebrating yet another successful assault and takeover, Brook was revealing in the spoils of war when Oliver would enter the room alone and fearless in the presence of a UCAS General and his direct support staff. Oliver would walk straight up to Kentucky and tell him that he was about to make him an offer he couldn’t refuse; well legends state that Oliver’s demeanour alone cowed Kentucky and even got his guards to lay down their arms. This is just legend but knowing the Godfather one can believe the tales, though what he offered is between Kentucky and Oliver but history dictates that on March 14th 2021 everything came crumbling down for the UCAS as Kentucky would turncoat on his own government and state. Whatever the deal was must have been huge for this greedy corporate to turn his back on his continued payday, though I believe the Jamestown’s offered more money than the UCAS could ever dream off. Also remember that I said the UCAS was spending money faster than they could bring it in, and this was going to haunt them as the coffers would eventually run dry and many freelancers would jump ship to the confederates seeing they had money to spare; also the rebels had hijacked multiple UCAS shipments as well as robbing multiple finance institutions thus helping bankrupt the new nation and force them to sellout to large corporations to help in the war effort and that was the fatal blow as the former UCAS General and Saboteur and master of Corporate Espionage would now be working for the south and unbeknown to the UCAS government they would sell a large portion of their military might to Bad Apple Incorporated a company owned and operated by Brook Mansfield and you can guess what would come next.
Kentucky would put his skills to the test as he would use the boardroom to fight the UCAS and not the battlefield, he would be the direct reason for the Mega Corporations to grab hold as he would use his unethical business practices to take over one company after another and than when he would gather the employees and corporate officers he would introduce them to his new associates the Jamestowns and well one can only imagine what happened in those conference rooms and employee lounges during those days; but seeing none of those companies exist today and the company roster can be found in the casualty log for the UCAS as victims of the Civil War.
