Biography[edit | edit source]
Smuggler is an eccentric businessman who has found his niche as a black market arms dealer. Smuggler has done business with prominent members of the National Secessionist Forces, including Decker Parkes and Juan Lebedev. According to Alex Jacobson, UNATCO files show that Smuggler is "whacked-out paranoid." True to this description, the entrance to Smuggler's living quarters is well guarded by traps.
Some time before JC Denton's arrival in Hell's Kitchen to locate an NSF generator, Smuggler's friend Ford Schick had been forced to work for Majestic 12 in a secret lab in the sewers. When Ford disappeared, Smuggler consulted with the Oracle AI for information on disappearance. Smuggler would eventually learn that Ford is being held in a secret lab in the sewers.
When Stanton Dowd gives JC the task of scuttling a super-freighter docked at the Brooklyn Naval Shipyards, Dowd advises JC to visit Smuggler for explosives. Meanwhile, UNATCO has been on a manhunt for JC Denton and is about to raid Hell Kitchen, which would put Smuggler in danger of being caught in the middle. Smugger may or may not evade the UNATCO raid, depending on whether he is tipped by JC to flee.
Description[edit | edit source]
Interactions[edit | edit source]
Smuggler can be encountered during each of the three visits to Hell's Kitchen, which is visited during the second, fourth and seventh missions. Smuggler offers items for sale during each of the three visits.
During the first visit to Hell's Kitchen, speaking to Smuggler will result in the secondary goal of rescuing his friend Ford Shick from the MJ12 lab in the sewers. After the successful rescue of Ford, Smuggler will lower his stock's prices and provide JC with additional information regarding the Majestic 12 conspiracy.
After JC's defection, Smuggler becomes a target for UNATCO and Majestic 12 forces, presumably due to his contact and interaction with the Denton brothers and the NSF in New York. JC's decisions during the third visit to Hell's Kitchen will decide Smuggler's fate. If JC fails to advises Smuggler to flee before the impending UNATCO raid on Hell's Kitchen, Smuggler is presumably killed or captured during the raid.
