On the special edition DVD's actor interviews, James Remar relates a story of how he went down to Coney to see what gang life was like down there and to find a model for his character Ajax. He goes to a carney working one of the booths and asks him "So what kind of people hang around down here?" The carney smiles, spreads his arms, and declares proudly, "The worst kind!"
In the game, there's a flashback mission showing how Ajax and Snow joined the gang, after Ajax and Snow find their vests(which were stolen from them earlier by the Destroyers) and are trying to sneak away from enemy territory, L.C.'s girlfriend(whom Ajax had sex with earlier) loudly yells out for Ajax to call her, alerting the destroyers to their presence.
