Extortionist, Syndicate Liaison, and Hard Case are all similar Syndicate characters from the Core Set.  If I had to rank them from best to worst, it would be in the same order as I listed them above, although I like all of them.  The Extortionist wins out for me because of his versatility as either a 2-cost rusher or a 3-cost controller.  And while the Liaison's arcane icons are rarer in-faction and his ability can even hit Ancient Ones, the Extortionist's icons are better suited to exploit the opening his ability creates.  And if there were still any doubt, the Extortionist's printed cost is lower than the Liaison's, making him a better partner for Peter Clover's ability.
