Joe Devil's Pawn Shop
Joe Devil’s Pawn has been around for 15 years. It was originally a furniture store that went out of business and was quickly bought by Joe ‘Devil’ Duvall. Joe is an elderly black man, who has lived in the area most of his life. His sons originally worked here with him, but all but one has died. His last son has moved on and is apparently a lawyer in Portland. Now at age 72, Joe has carved out his own place in the Zone, and his pawn shop is one of the most respected and longer lasting establishments in the Zone. Joe himself is a cantankerous old curmudgeon with a foul mouth and a quick temper.
The shop is one of the best places to buy and sell goods if you don’t have the time or inclination to try and set up one of the black markets in the Zone. Joe will buy anything he thinks he can sell, though he may not offer much. In addition the shop buys vehicles; some they sell, others they rent out for a small fee. Each rental vehicle is marked profusely with the Joe Devil logo.
