Ned and D have been together for over 10 years. Moving to Las Vegas from Colorado where Ned has a successful tiling business, they fell upon hard times and were eventually forced to sleep rough after falling behind on rent payments, partly as they admit, caused by their drug habit. They moved into the relative sanctuary of the storm drains underneath the city in order to escape the elements and the hassle of living rough on the streets above. What they found there was a sense of community which they could lean on for support. To raise money they hustle on the strip, labeling themselves as 'concierges of nightlife', something they've become quite good at, before retreating back underground to their home which consists of a double bed a few meagre possessions.
