Sorot the crimp - as he was called in the feared Zapraskal's gang - was responsible for recruitment of new members in the streets of the shanty-town.

After a big police round-up, he denounced his friends Skretty and Snakky to save his own skin.

Many of them claim to this day that Sorot was in reality an emperor and a powerful [cosmomage].
