A poser gang that runs in the high society of Night City. All members are cybernetically rebuilt to look like a member of the Kennedy clan, and their mantra is dominance through style, cutting edge sophistication, and determining the future of popular culture. There is no known leader or hierarchy of leadership and any Kennedy seems to be able to speak for the group in any given situation. The numbers of the members are unknown as well, ranging from only a few key individuals to perhaps thousands.
They are known to be involved in drug sales, nearly exclusively through the vast night club ownership and operation that they wield. They have various other business interests as well, from construction to real estate speculation to money laundering and loan sharking. By keeping control on what is “cool”, they are able to funnel their designer drugs where they will sell the most. Their financial reserves are also unknown, but it is assumed by most that as a group they are extremely wealthy.
Kennedy’s eschew the appearance of violence as being bad for business, which in their case it typically is. However, they are very comfortable with using other groups or individuals to meet their murder for hire needs and have a close working relationship with the Voodoo Boys. The Kennedy’s derive much of their power from the fact that they are able to move within the circles of society’s elite classes. The access to money, information, and political influence from this social maneuverability makes them a very powerful organization, despite their “pretty boy” appearance.
