"Ride the Broken Road." The MC's motto
The Mongrels Motorcycle Club also known as the Mongrels MC was an outlaw motorcycle club featured in Days Gone.
The Mongrels' logo represents a chained dog with a burst of blood coming from it's jaws. Their colors are black, white and red.
The Mongrels were founded in Farewell, Oregon, at an unknown point in time. Little is known about the MC's activities other than they owned a motorcycle mechanic shop as well as a marijuana farm as their sources of income.
The club was originally run by an old man named Jack who was elected as The President of the mother chapter. A Truck driver named Boozer was patched into the MC, where he rose through the ranks and became a Sergeant-at-Arms. He later met a woman named Joany where the pair fell in love and married.
A young drifter named Deacon St. John received a job as a mechanic in their motorcycle shop. Jack personally offered him a membership within the MC which Deacon gladly accepted and was soon patched as an Enforcer. Deacon later met a man named 'Jersey' Jim and patched him into the MC.
One night, Boozer and Joany went out for a ride when they were crashed into by a couple of drunk drivers near Highway 97 and Joany was killed. The MC later arrived at the scene, where Deacon dragged Boozer away and they were forced to temporarily leave Joany’s corpse behind. They lied to the police about the incident in order to spare Boozer a conviction for manslaughter.
Some time later, Jessie Williamson was excommunicated after he killed another member over drugs. The MC’s code stipulated that the individual must be stripped of the colours. Deacon, Boozer and Jim forcibly held him down while Jack used a blowtorch to remove his back Mongrel's tattoo and Jessie was banished from the club.
The MC later came under investigation by the federal police where Jack ended up taking the rap for the club and was sentenced to Klamath State prison. It is unknown whether he retained the title of President, or if his title was given to someone else. However most members of the MC frequently visited him in prison.
By the time of the Freaker apocalypse, it appears that the MC is no longer active, as the only known members, Deacon and Boozer, operate independently as freelance bounty hunters/mercenaries with seemingly no contact with any other members of the club, possibly meaning they are the last surviving members.
Deacon and Boozer continued to wear their leathers long into the apocalypse, partially out of habit and partially out of remembrance for the time they lived by a code and for the sense of brotherhood it represented.
