From the news: Siege Criminals

In most games of Siege I've played, the Captor tends to be the misunderstood type. They have some kind of sob story that's finally driven them to violence. But when I read this story I get a sense of something different.
On June 14, Lawrenceburg police were called about a man shoplifting at the Walmart on Locust Avenue. When they officers arrived the man was leaving Walmart and led police to the CVS Pharmacy on Gaines Street.
The siege began because someone was running from the police because of an earlier petty crime. As they say, "Well, that escalated quickly."

So, some ideas for your Captor character:
- Just like the article, you started with a smaller crime that got out of hand and now no one wants to back down.

- You just want the money. Lots of it. In fact, you're on a kind of Joker-esque spree. This thing hasn't finished escalating yet.

- This is a gang initiation. You had to break into someone's house and demand money, but before you could get away someone called the cops.

Go play it. Let me know how it went for you.
