Yoshiro Takanaka hires another team of runners, this time to acquire some local talent before the Yakuza he's pissed off find him and do something regrettable. Miles Martinez, a young and inspired graffiti writer, has been posting beautiful but inflamatory anti-Yakuza murals in Yakuza territory around Tacoma. The work has caught Takanaka's eye, and he wants to enter a protection and distribution deal with Miles, but can't track him down. The only lead he has to go on is a video of the kid sporting some very rare cyberlegs. The team manages to track the legs back to the doctor who installed it, who in turn leads them to the workplace of the mother. The gang meets her as she is waitressing at the Armadillo, a bar in Puyallup. After a small scuffle with some gangers that frequented the bar, the team manages to talk the mother into helping track down Miles, to give him this shot at a better life. They wait for Miles at his mother's apartment, and manage to hold him long enough to give the sales pitch. Miles agrees, and the team drops him off with Takanaka and collects their pay.
