Piranha Jones is a competent crime boss, capable of building lucrative criminal ventures from the ground up. He can be quite naturally persuasive, especially for people impressed by his vocabulary.
Teeth: Piranha Jones teeth have been replaced by pointed steel blades, he has no compulsion against actually tearing the throat or nose out of an opponent with a fierce bite.
Piranha Jones comes from a dirt-poor New York City neighbourhood. By age 15 he had not teeth left, presumably because he couldn’t afford dental care. Yet he craved power and respect to become the prince of New York.
He made a killing in crime, eventually heading his own mob. Likening himself to a ravenous and bloodthirsty piranha, he had his decayed teeth replaced by metal spikes.
