2 Good 2 B True
Denny came from the suburbs but has been on the road for a couple of years. Why did he leave an ordered, middle-class existence for a life of vagrancy? Maybe his home life was less than perfect. Maybe he’s a spoiled kid roughing it. If you ask him about it when he’s in a talkative mood, he might say that where he came from you had everything, but you owed more. It’s pretty clear he hates owing anything to anybody.
He ended up falling in to the Big Dog‘s orbit. The Pack is obligation-free enough that he can exist within it without hating it, but he tends to roam off on his own, trying to make a big enough score that when he drags back the carcass he gets major cred. That’s why he tried to shake down Elise (without much success).
