Darkness of Melbourne
After the now well publicized events of Melbourne’s Underbelly, a younger man with a vision rose within the Melbourne Underworld. Working under the name Patrick Trohnan, he within a short, somewhat brutal year, cleared most of the scum off the streets, and united the entire underworld under a single banner, the Hand.
He actually did the country a favor. Numbers of murders dropped, and incidences of drugs reaching the street were nullified. Crime rates remained about the same, but they were coordinated by him. Now an influential and powerful business figure, the Police cannot pin anything on him, and even if they could, someone from further up would ask them to leave it alone.
They are almost as powerful force in Australian society as the Government now, holding many huge exporting businesses, as well as several lucrative importing trades.
