An old-salt of an ork overseeing a mostly automated Wuxing shipping yard. He's lived far too long to give a shit anymore, but he's got a sorta crusty charisma to him, like a washed out uncle. He reeks of tobacco, the real, earthy smelling stuff.


Bongo Roswell is one lucky orc. A dockworker in his youth, he's escaped the automation of his profession by holding himself in a cushy job up as one of the few living things overseeing heavy shipments in Elliot Bay. Bongo only knows how he ended up in such a position of power, and when he's asked he pulls out his pipe, runs his tongue over his teeth, smile a sardonic smile and replies, "Chutzpah".

Though he could (and for the most part, does) live an easy life, being paid to do nothing more than occasionally look over a bit of paperwork and make sure that the shipping drones are operating as they should, he possesses enough ambition to sometimes make sure that the occasional shipment is 'lost in transit'. Whether due to lack of oversight or clerical skill on his part, he's never been caught during his long career, the extra nuyen allowing a minor gambling habit to bloom into a full blown addiction.


Bongo Roswell's position is a complete fluke. When the shipping company he worked for went under and was bought up by Wuxing, his file was somehow flagged as retainable, and in the automated shuffle Bongo was put in a management position over an entire shipyard despite lacking a college degree. He's managed to keep his job for over 30 years with a combination of scrap, fast talk, and a knack for sending complaints into an automated system so labyrinthine that the lifespan of your average goblinoid wont allow them to have any significance or consequence.
