[When Hyperion pulled out of Pandora, many of the gangs that had operated under their noses came out in full force to fill the power vacuum. Of those gangs, the Solomons gang was one of the biggest, the most prolific, and the most powerful. Unlike many, they were a family gang - close and tight-knit, and intensely loyal to each other (if not always to their outsider allies). And their formidable leader, Alfie Solomons, was notorious for always being at the top of his game.

Another thing the Solomons were known for was working with the little people - mainly the thieves and pickpockets who roamed the streets of Hollow Point, the town that the gang operated out of. Of course, not every small-time thief was brave enough to get tangled up with a bigger gang. But the ones that were... those were the ones that Alfie took notice of. Those were the ones that could potentially be useful.]

[Not long after Hyperion pulls the vast majority of its forces off of Pandora, Felix screws Fiona and Sasha over for a lot of money, and pisses off a ton of his former allies and contacts in the process. Everyone knows Felix raised Sasha and Fiona, so they're blacklisted by default, which leaves them stuck. They don't have anyone to fence anything to, or any contacts to help them with bigger jobs. Fiona isn't really one to trust anyone outside of her family, but it's not like she has much choice, which is what finally pushes her into approaching Solomons. She's done a couple of jobs for him at this point, but nothing great, so when she hears he's got something bigger for her to help with, she jumps at the chance.

Ollie leads her back to Alfie's office, as usual, and Fiona teases him all the way, as usual. He opens the door for her, and Fiona steps into the room, not sitting down. Alfie's gang is so much more formal than the other gangs or criminals Fiona has worked with on Pandora, and she's not used to it. She doesn't really ever play into it, either, and she's not sure if that annoys the hell out of him or amuses him. Sometimes, he's infuriatingly hard to read.]

Hey. Here I am, as promised. What's up?

[Fiona sighs, plopping down into the chair and tilting her hat back on her head.]

Vallory's tough and ruthless. Used to be friends with Felix, but now they hate each other's guts. She's got a lot of connections—she hires vault hunters, sometimes, or works with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders when their interests align.

[She pauses, as though trying to think of what else he might want to know.]

Uh... August is her right hand man. Her son. He's a prick, and he's a pretty easy mark. She works with these two mercs, Kroger and Finch, who do her heavy lifting. What you see is what you get with her, mostly. She's not subtle. Why? What's going on?
