The Givers of Pain are one of the more notable booster gangs in Night City and in the state. Their reputation for excessive brutality (even for booster gang standards) and their skill in torture has made them one of the most admired and reviled booster gangs known. Their size, rumored to push 300, their savage territoriality, and Noir's effective skills as a leader and enforcer have given them power in the southside combat zone contested only by a few other gangs: the chromer/punk gang The Phantoms, led by Lady Maim; and the booster gang The Black, led by "the Contingent," to name a few.[1]


Black leather and matte black cyberlimbs with gold nails, studs, etc. Almost always are bald and adorn themselves in black eye make-up and skullstuds (either gold or silver). They favor the common Booster Gang hardware: rippers, bigripps, and buzzsaws. Vampires or sharkgrin specials are always present in all Givers of Pain members.[1]
