Emperor’s Row….argueably the dirtiest, nastiest, smelliest alley in the whole of Washington D.C. It is also the claimed territory of “Emperor” Nelson VanKemp. Nelson took hold of this area some years back and has made it a safe haven…a dirty, nasty, smelly safe haven, but it’s safe. That’s something that the homeless and disenfranchised didn’t have before. Bangers, tough guys, dirty cops, and everyone else that ever wanted to feel big and strong used to pick on every bum and vagrant they could find in this area of town. The Emperor put a stop to that. The gangs fear him, the monsters don’t come around as much, the only cops left are the good ones and the people are safe. Granted, Nelson is probably psychotic, he carries around a huge sword for gods’ sake, but he keeps them safe. Emperor’s Row is his Camelot, the central most alleyway in his domain, and god help the thing that comes down here to screw with the people.Hail Emperor Nelson!
