Name: Juan King
Age: 28 (in 2045, born 2017.)
Style: Stylish, dark colours
Born in Mexico City, Juan is the son of a Mexican mother Amelia Cordoza and American father Mike King. His mother was a promising young musician, but while studying at college in Night City she fell in love with a fellow student and soon dropped out of college to be with him. They got married and had five kids together, the oldest being Juan's big brother Jo along with three younger sisters, Jessie, Carla and Juna. Unfortunately, Mike was a member of a prominent Night City gang and when Juan was still young both Mike and Amelia were killed in a hit-and-run accident.
Juan has a strong bond with his older brother Jo. Carla and Juna are neutral towards him and Jessie in not on speaking terms with Juan.
17: Juan was running with a gang in Night City and got into a fight with a rival gang, stumbling onto their turf by accident. While trying to escape he is hit by a car and is critically injured, spending four months in hospital.
18: Juan helped out a younger kid in the gang, with Enrique looking up to Juan and becoming something like a kid-brother to him.
19: While running with the gang, busting into a store on the edge of Night City to make some cash, Juan is ID’d by the cops through CCTV and is wanted by the local cops for burglary and assault, something that Juan knows is only partly true.
20: Juan does a deal to sell on some stolen merchandise, unfortunately it belongs to Raven Cyber-systems and word gets back to one of their regional directors, Karl Falken, who swears he’ll find Juan and make him pay for fencing their merch.
21 & 22: Got involved with a girl named Rachel he met in a coffee shop, managed to keep himself out of trouble and almost got his act together completely, though he couldn’t quite stay clear of the ‘punk life.
23: His relationship with Rachel might have ended but they are still close friends and they stay in contact.
24: Juan and his little sister Jessie almost come to blows as Juan refuses to work with her in some crazy deal she is working on. He doesn’t want to put her in danger by brokering a deal between her gang and a rival group, but she doesn’t see it as him protecting her, only denying her a big pay day. To this day they haven’t spoken to each other – see next entry.
25: Jessie goes ahead with her crazy scheme and ends up getting caught in a DEA set-up. She’s doing time for her crime and it’s down to some desk jockey that tapped her phone. Juan went to her trial and knows who turned evidence against her. Juan wants to get revenge, but the DEA agent, Robert McTaggart has the whole of the DEA on his side.
26: A quiet year by Juan’s standards. Jessie still won’t talk to him, refusing all visiting requests, Jo understands why he wouldn’t help but the others don’t know who to support. He still talks to Rachel, frequenting the coffee shop she now manages and gets a sympathetic ear.
27: An old woman who lives on the same block as Juan was being intimidated by a gang of street kids, but Juan puts in a call to some contacts and scares them off. The old woman thanks him and the two become firm friends. Estelle, a 60 year old ex-factory worker is smart and a damn good cook too. Juan comes to her for her legendary apple pie when he’s feeling down.
