grifter, hacker, hitter, thief //
stacker pentecost feels like an old man sometimes, the triplets and mako getting underfoot everywhere he turns. their base gets a little crowded, six of them all jostling for space and bandwidth, but when a job starts, he never doubts that he’s assembled the best team in the industry.
all of them can grift, but experience is a brutal teacher and no one thinks as fast on their feet as stacker does. acting as control tower and inside man isn’t always easy, but tendo can handle himself and keep the team in order when their leader goes offline. after all, he’s been in the business almost as long as stacker has.
sometimes one or two of the weis stick to him on a job. security for the wealthy businessman with interests in hong kong, or ambitious young CEOs making a splash in asian markets— stacker as their foothold into the west. they speak english, mandarin, cantonese and japanese fluently; enough korean to fool the vast majority of their marks.
twins, stacker will say. clever young men, tight with their money but generous when the offer is right. you know how quickly china’s been growing; the spirit of entrepreneurship is alive and well, you see.
whatever brothers aren’t stuck in the field with pentecost (sometimes it’s one of them, sometimes it’s all of them) back mako up.
not that she needs it. mako hasn’t met a building, an office, a museum, a bank, safe, vault or office that could keep her out. getting in is easy; getting out isn’t always as simple, but that’s when stacker lets the boys go wild. they get bored when things go according to plan anyway.
as for stacker— well, he considers himself a bit of a modern-day robin hood. they have one rule: kaiju targets only. the members of this particular criminal organization have bases everywhere from canberra to silicon valley, the company itself founded by some white guy with a little too much interest in old japanese monster movies.
but what it comes down to is that prime marks are are greedy, arrogant and rich—kaiju operatives fit the bill perfectly.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2014)
The year is 1925. Fresh out of Hogwarts, Newt Scamander finds himself struggling with the banality of working for the Ministry of Magic. When the United Wizarding Republic invites him to investigate a rogue dragon living in the sewer systems of New York City, however, Newt’s boring life is plunged into chaos. New York City is dark, dirty, and dazzling, but with a little help from Nella Larson and Duke Ellington - the brightest witch and wizard of their age - Newt finally starts to feel that New York is home. Together, the Nella and Duke teach Newt how to do the Charleston, how to buy Butterbeer off the blackmarket, and, of course, how to save New York City from a hoard of angry dragons.
