The Gambler

Story Summary:  Growing up on a Las Vegas-esque space colony, Zero spends much of his time as an under-the-table defense attorney for the Slaughtered Rabbits, a street gang whom both him and his older brother are members.  When his brother gets killed by the Mountain Master (the leader of the rival gang, The 14k Triads) for having an affair with his daughter, Zero decides to finally shed this life of crime for a civilian one.  However, a gang war soon erupts, and Zero is now conflicted whether to use this opportunity to truly move on or succumb to vengeance.
