      Quest Giver - cops, Vista Del Rev, near Corpo Plaza.
      Quest: save the Corpo(Nigel Hamilton) from cops or fuck off.
      Some Intelligence and Cool checks on the dialogue lines.
      Intelligence asks for truth, Nigel tells us about cops asking about a hooker, and her Virtu, and, when he is unable to answer their questions, coppers beat him to the pulp.
      Cool is mostly about eddies.
