the Berney Bank Building home of the Berney Bank. The Berney Bank is owned
by the Berney brothers, Bernie Berney and Barney Bank Berney, long-time
rivals of the Steiner Brothers. The Berney brothers used to own large
chunks of the city before being out-maneuvered by the more unscrupulous
Steiners. While the Steiners had no qualms about foreclosing on any widow
or orphanage that was even a millisecond late on their payments, the Berney
brothers had a conscience. Thus they lost most of their business to the
increasingly powerful and wealthy Steiners. So if this tale is to have
a moral lets make it: "Be evil. Have no regard for anyone or
anything and youll wind up on top in the end." Every story
should have a moral.
You hear the Bat Bus up the street getting ready to take off on its route. Down the street you see a lady standing in front of the Music Box, a famous record store. As you decide which way to go you wonder if the Berney brothers might have wanted to get rid of Sigfried in order to exact revenge for past evil deeds.
