Rembrandt prior to his initiation.

 Level summary
The level begins with a flashback to the meeting. Cyrus, the head of the Gramercy Riffs, explains to a large crowd how New York City's gangs outnumber the police 60,000 to 20,000. This incites a large cheer from the crowd, but Cyrus is then shot by Luther, the leader of the Rogues.
The level then moves to three months earlier; Cleon, the leader of The Warriors, along with Vermin meet up with Rembrandt, a street artist looking to join the gang. Cleon and Vermin lead Rembrandt to the fight pen near The Warriors' hangout. Rembrandt battles a local hobo named Rudy, before fighting a number of other local vagrants. After beating the homeless, Rembrandt must hold his own against several Warriors before he is able to join the gang.
After Rembrandt completes his initiation, he tries on his vest and revisits Cleon and Vermin. Because Rembrandt looks injured from his earlier brawls, Cleon orders Vermin to take him to find some flash. On the streets of Coney Island, Vermin shows Rembrandt show basic ways to earn money: stealing from shops, stealing car radios and mugging civilians. After this, Vermin leads Rembrandt to a nearby flash dealer; Rembrandt purchases some flash from the dealer, before he and Vermin head back to the hangout to see Cleon.
