Renton is one of the most “average” districts in Seattle – which isn’t saying much. It’s primarily a middle-low class residential neighborhood.
Renton’s problems are less serious than those of the Redmond Barrens, but the district has definitely seen better days. Renton has more gangs than any other area in Seattle except Redmond and is also a hotbed of Humanis Policlub activity, making anti-metahuman sentiment all too common.
About 35% of Renton’s population is metahuman.
The 2048 elections saw the rise of mayor Carl B. Vandersalm for his third term.
Humanis Policlub Seattle headquarters are located here.
Renton’s features many of Seattle’s commercial shops aiming at middle and low class customers.
It is also notable for a number of security industry and software industry facilities.
