Character Analysis

A bartender at the Chat, he has a mechanized arm and refers to Case as "the artiste." Whether out of friendship or simply because he finds Case entertaining, he helps Case out during the misunderstanding with Wage. So he seems to represent the good side of Night City. Okay, maybe not good side but at least the semi-decent side. Which is saying a lot, for a place like Night City.
