Going to break this down by gang, but only the people that you will have spoken to, or heard stories about.

The Catch All's

"Heartless" Anthony: Gang leader and a big dangerous sod. Runs the gang through brutality and fear, and no one you'll have spoken to has heard of him losing a fight of either soft words, or hard.

Kevin "Nutty" McNulty: Second. Tall handsome chap. In fact, one of the best looking men any of you have ever seen. An absolute charmer and fence for the gang.

Martin "Titch" Titchell. Fairly new to the gang's Dozen. Tall and plain faced, with an expensive looking revolver on each hip. Both in expensive quick draw holsters, and the gunfighters among you will spot that the pistols have both been modified to make them as quick as possible to draw and fire.

David "Deep" Waters. Built on a bigger scale than most people, not just tall, but jacked! Mostly keeps quite but when he does talk, people pay attention.

Gatka

No one's really spoken to these guys much yet, as they tend to keep themselves to themselves, but you'll have seen a few of them around, and just picked up a little from general gossip.

Anik: Gang leader. Big chap, looks like he enjoys a hearty meal, but there's plenty of muscle under the layers of fat. Very rarely gets in a fight, and is always happy to offer mercy rather finish a fight in the terminal way most would.

Hamray: Second, a known info broker, and as such, gives away little without reason and will hardly talk at all, unless invited to. Even then, he will answer in short sentences without giving anything away he doesn't have to.

The Dogs

Operate out of the tattoo parlour, and most of the gang are younger than the others. So far, only October has spoken to any of them directly. She would find them weirdly intense and a bit creepy...

Stewart "The Foulness" Phillips: Gang leader. The oldest in the gang, at a venerable 23. Face almost covered in tattoos, but closer inspection shows an abundance of acne scars, and an unpleasant medicinal smell coming off him.

Melanie "Shine" Shaw. Second and girl friend of The Foulness. Rumour is that she'll fuck anyone though, with Stewart seeming oblivious to this. Once a rare beauty, but now also inked with a sun tattoo covering half of her face, and a smile that looks extremely wicked and cruel.

"Lady" Short teenager, who looks like an adolescent male, with a stocky build and close cropped hair, with an androgynous face. It's only when she speaks that you are sure she is a girl, aged about 13-14, but really hard to be sure. Rarely smiles...

Beck Street Bastards

Mostly dress as dandies, and run their operation from Pinky Brown's cathouse.

"Long Robert" Keeler. Gang leader, and the most ostentatiously dressed man you've ever met. Has an easy going charm to him, but it's known he's quick to anger and is a devil with a long blade.

"Tall Sally" Only a couple inches taller than Mouse, and looks almost as ugly. Used to work in a whore house, and has been roughed up a few too many times, resulting in a nose broken in multiple places, cracked jaws, shattered cheeks, torn ears and missing teeth. Seems to know how to give it back these days, and not someone you'd want to go toe-to-toe with in a fist fight.

Florence Henderson, One of the gang's Dozen, and resident sawbones. She has at least as much skill as your own doctor, and a suspiciously well stocked medical case, that rattles when moved, as if full of glass vials and bottles...

Marlene Daggson. Works behind the bar at Pinky Brown's. Although like the rest of the Bastards, she dresses very well, her face is plain, and she has a very average build, perfect for blending into crowds.

Cohen's Gang

No one seems to know if they have a real gang name, but the operate out of Cohen's Haberdashery.

Alexander Cohen: Gang leader. Older chao in his fifties, but looks distinguished. Closer inspection will reveal calloused hands of someone who has worked all their life, even if he's now sporting an expensive but workman like suit. Carries a semi-auto pistol that looks well used, and talk with a charming lilt, but can get very intense when discussing his latest business proposal.

Nathan Meyer: Second, and a younger man in his early twenties. As well as carrying a pistol, makes no effort to hide several various blades about his person, each looking like it has a very specific job. He has quick hands, and is always busying them fidgeting with random items like coins and cards.

Having now met Meyer up close, he also well dressed, and although very polite, it comes across as more of a professional demeanour, than him being a pleasant chap.

Bethany Rose: A strikingly beautiful woman, almost to the point of having the Haunting Beauty quality. Dresses well, conservatively even, but her clothes are always cut to accentuate her figure. Closer inspection by very perceptive folks will reveal she is heavily made up, seemingly in an effort to hide the fact that she is in her late 30s, possible even early 40s. Although she carries no obvious firearm, she has a matched pair of very high quality stiletto blades at her waist.

Ruth Jordan. A short and chubby, but irresistibly cheerful young lady. Wears workmen like clothes, cut in a masculine style, and as well as carrying a rifle over her shoulders, she has a crossed pair of crooked knives, sheathed on her back.

Emanuel  Simon. Tall, striking features, with a patrician nose. Wears fancy boots, almost knee height and shiny, a long black coat that he keeps in fine form, and always carries a fine steel tipped walking cane.

The Smeddlington Household

Not a gang, per se, but where they work is the only thing that seems to tie them together at present.

David Harcroft. Seems to be de facto leader, at least socially, and reading between the lines, he's either a butler or a valet. He dresses well enough to be either, with his well made clothes in excellent condition, and pressed to perfection.

Callum. A shorter young man, of good humour but otherwise little of note. In a pistol holster, he carries a sawn off shotgun, with extra shells worn on the belt.

Robert Foster. Average height and appearance, a little on the slim side, but quite effervescent in his personality, and seems at ease with his friends and colleagues.

Andrew "Andy" Boothroyd. The oldest of the four, and gone a little to seed, but under the covering of fat, it looks like he's still got plenty of muscle. His clothes and footwear would indicate he has the more physical, outdoors type of job of the group.
