Politics is a deadly game and often those who play it have a wide variety of plots and machinations in motion at any one time. Many of these depend upon the extensive use of ignorant, expendable pawns. Criminals, and those who society would prefer to ignore, are ideally suited for this manner of operation. A cunning politico knows how to make use of such vassals, promising them enough cash to ensure they are interested without asking too many questions. Those who can get the job done and keep their mouths shut can find lucrative, long-term employment, while those who cause too much of a spectacle can quietly be diverted into situations that allow the problem to resolve itself, usually in a violent manner.
