"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. His wife named Joany also became affiliated with the club.
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 an African-American man named 'Jersey' Jim and patched him into the MC.
A few months aftewards, Harlan Nelson a senior member of the MC passed away due to lung cancer and was buried in Pioneer Cemetery. Hundreds of Mongrels from all across the Pacific Northwest attened the biker funeral.
One night, Boozer and Joany went out for a drunken joy ride, where he lost control of the bike and crashed 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 murdered 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 Mongrel's back tattoo and Jessie was excommunicated 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 stayed loyal to Jack and frequently visited him in prison.
Some years later, Deacon chose to become Nomad in order to spend more quality time with Sarah. This decision however upset most of his brothers in the MC apart from Boozer who remained loyal towards him. Deacon and Sarah later married in a small chapel in Marion Forks, however the rest of the MC either failed or refused to attend the cremnoy.
A high school graduate named Mateo Juarez was prospected into the MC for over a year. Boozer constantly tormented him by ordering him to perform several tasks. The club was eventually going to patch him in, however this never managed to occur due to the Freaker outbreak.
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.
