List Rules Vote up the fixers you'd hire to get out of a sticky situation.

Crime is a messy business, which is why every good criminal has a great Fixer in their contacts. A Fixer is someone you hire when things go wrong. They'll clean up any mess you leave behind, for a price. These are the people who can make a body disappear forever, or erase any trace you may have left behind at a crime scene. They're professionals, and they usually act like it.

Not all Fixers are criminals, however. Sometimes they are just people who can make the impossible happen. Cinema history is full of iconic fixers, men and women who have managed to skate by on the edge of laws and probability, and looked awesome while doing it. Everyone has different needs though. Who would you hire if you needed a Fixer to save your skin?
