This protective "gang" was created when the Slaughterhouse went on a killing spree at the local subway station a few years back. By the time the cops arrived, the gang had killed over two dozen people. The Back Alley Brawlers were formed in reaction to this bloodbath, and have been at war with gangs like the Slaughterhouse ever since.
The Brawlers are old fashioned vigilantes (good-hearted street toughs helped out by the occasional well-armed businessman, retired solo, or local juvieganger), fighting fire with fire. Most gangs in the area avoid the Brawlers, hoping someone else will take them out, but so far no one has been able to do the job.
There are unsubstantiated rumors of Brawlers running a protection racket in the area. But the NCPD chooses to ignore this darker side of the gang in light of their positive effects. Membership is open to anyone who can take care of themselves on the Street, and are willing to help.

The only piece of uniform clothing the Brawlers wear is a black beret.
