Monk is Mimi’s brother. Although, these days you’re guessing neither considers the other one family anymore. About 6 months ago Monk and a few of his folks packed up and left for god-knows-where.
Though, if anyone can get up and leave their backwards no-wheresville of a hardhold, it is probably Monk. He had a smile that could win a crowd (and, more importantly, the charisma it takes to be a leader people will fight and die for).
