Big Ben is a mid-level member of Crimson Crush, the orkish turf gang running The Verge neighborhood in Redmond. His main duties are enforcing, which includes extorting protection money from tenants and maintaining discipline amongst members. He also helps with security at Aces, the gang’s hangout, and sometimes joins the fight against enemies like the First Nations. He is known to prefer large blunt objects in combat that allow him to make use of his strength; this also comes in handy for intimidation. Big Ben sometimes does various drugs, but his main weakness is his lust for Asian prostitutes. He is known to resent the presence of Mafia soldatos when they treat Crimson Crush like second-rate street rabble.
