[[caption-width-right:200:He's an asshole. This is the truth.]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/AtsushiImaruoka (JP), Creator/IanSinclair (EN)

Eve Genoard's missing brother and grade-A asshole. Spent most of his time picking fights, pissing away money on booze, and generally being a dick. The one chink in his armor is his sister Eve, of whom he is [[BigBrotherInstinct protective]].

* AndIMustScream: Since they can't be killed by any normal means, Luck resorts to stuffing Dallas and his friends in barrels filled with cement and dumping them in the Hudson river, where their {{Healing Factor}}s keep them constantly drowning to death. However, their incomplete version of the elixir means they would have eventually died of old age, and a couple years later Luck lets Eve drudge them out as long as they don't mess with the Gandors anymore. [[spoiler:However, he's rescued by the Larvae in "The Slash".]]
* AssholeVictim: If he weren't an asshole, the audience might feel bad for the crap that happens to him.
* BackFromTheDead: He is given an AndIMustScream treatment in 1930, but the ending of the final episode of the anime shows Eve finally finding the barrel he was in... only to find it empty.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He slugs a fellow for suggesting they use his sister for money but, as with everything ''else'' he does, he fails at acting on it.
* ButtMonkey: Dallas gets kicked around by ''everyone''. Given [[{{Jerkass}} what kind of person he is]], we might enjoy it.
* CementShoes: Luck does this to him for crossing the Gandors and Martillo families.
* EvilerThanThou: He's terrified of Szilard after he devours one of his partners. The only reason he's working for him is because Szilard promised him money.
* HealingFactor: Dallas is an "incomplete" immortal, meaning he'll recover from any sort of physical harm, but still ages naturally.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: High on the "ineffectual", low on the "sympathetic."
* IronButtmonkey: Dallas when his deaths are PlayedForLaughs. It's justified in that he is immortal.
* JerkAss: He's rude, arrogant, bullies people weaker than him, and seeks revenge for self-inflicted slights. [[spoiler:However, once he is pulled out of the river in ''The Slash'' and finally returned to Eve, he turns over a new leaf and becomes a beloved philanthropist.]]
* KickTheDog: Dallas has many of these which is why he gets his ass kicked so often.
* LivingMacGuffin: In ''Drugs & the Dominoes''/the 1932 arc, though it's debatable if someone in a state of perpetual drowning can really be considered "living".
* OutGambitted: After murdering some of the Gandors' men, Dallas figures he can pin it on that StreetUrchin that kicked his ass earlier that day -- two birds with one stone, right? Not when said StreetUrchin is Luck Gandor's childhood friend, you can't.
* PetTheDog: His only redeeming quality is his [[BigBrotherInstinct affection and protectiveness of his little sister]], Eve.
* SmugSnake: His ego far exceeding his ability and sense is what gets him in trouble time after time.
* StrawLoser: When you get right down to it, half of his purpose in the story is to suck at everything and make the Gandor family members look good.
* UnknownRival: Ever since their fight, [[spoiler:and especially since being fished out of the river by the Larvae]], Dallas considers Firo to be his arch-nemesis and the root of all that is bad in the world. Firo, on the other hand, considers him an annoying dick.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Though he doesn't go crazy, Dallas does turn his {{Jerkass}} behavior up to eleven once he realizes he can't be killed for it.

* EmotionlessGirl: Played with. She doesn't ''show'' emotion but there's plenty of it in her telepathy with her father.
* EngagingConversation: With Claire. They become informally engaged after just two meetings -- and right after they try to kill each other.
* FriendOrIdolDecision: Her greatest fear is that she'll be forced to choose between Claire and her loyalty to her father.

* KnifeNut: Her specialty. She has holsters in her dress.
* LoveMartyr: Towards her father. Huey doesn't even consider her ''human'', but she'll still bend over backwards to please him. She was actually perfectly willing to die in service to the Lemures if it meant they would manage to free her father (who she had absolute faith that he would easily outsmart them once he had escaped).
* LoveRevelationEpiphany: She only fell in love with Claire because he told her he loves her and proposed to her, which showed her that someone could love her without gaining anything from it. They end up HappilyMarried.

* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Whatever her father says, that's what she does.

Chane's father, and considered by the other surviving ''Advena Avis'' passengers to be the creepiest one of their kind. Huey is a self-proclaimed man of science that doesn't let silly, intangible concepts like "ethics" or [[MadScientist "sanity"]] get in the way of a good experiment. Currently, he's been imprisoned for acts of treason and terrorism against the United States. He's also the figurehead of a {{Cult}} known as the Lemures, who are convinced that Huey can give them the secret to immortality.

* MoralityChain: To Huey; he once disclosed to Chane the only reason he isn't conducting experiments in mass and screwing with other people's lives in general is because: "Elmer would be sad". In addition, [[spoiler:Huey has asked Elmer to serve as his link to his old self by remaining [[StaticCharacter exactly the same]] as he was in their youth. In Huey's mind, there would be no point in bringing back Monica if he had changed completely from what he once was by then. Elmer has the job of bringing a little bit of his old self back to him.]]

!!The Lemures
[[folder:Goose Perkins]]
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/baccano_114goose_4528.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:240: We have no reason to fear death, for we have become ghosts while still alive.]]

Leader of the Lemures and one of Huey's cohorts.

* {{Cult}}: The Lemures, which he leads.
* TheDragon: To Huey, in the grand scheme of things, he sees himself as carrying out Huey's will.
* EyesAlwaysShut: He only opens them during his VillainousBreakdown.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* FireBreathingWeapon: He wields a flamethrower at the climax.
* ImmortalitySeeker: He serves Huey in the hope that he will be rewarded with immortality. Huey and Chane believe this to be true of all the Lemures.
* {{Jerkass}}: As if hijacking a train wasn't enough, he has to a dick about it.
* KarmicDeath: He's killed when he's thrown off the train and his flamethrower ''explodes''.
* KickTheDog: He enjoys telling Mrs. Beriam his plan, which involves murdering her daughter, a little too much.
* LackOfEmpathy: He makes it clear that he doesn't care about how many people die because of his plan, as long as he gains immortality.
* LaughingMad: While chasing Jacuzzi with the flamethrower, he can be seen laughing maniacally with a massive SlasherSmile.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Twice! Once when he claims he's "too much of a gentleman" to have his men strip search Nice, giving her the perfect opportunity to attack them with hidden explosives. Then when he fights Jacuzzi with a flamethrower... while Jacuzzi's desperately trying to light Nice's cherry bomb.
* SatelliteCharacter: Everything about him is related to Huey and immortality.
* SmugSnake: Just listen to his speech to Mrs. Beriam. It can easily be translated to, "I'm the greatest terrorist on Earth and anyone who tries to stop me is an idiot!"
* TheStoic: Keeps up a calm if not extremely arrogant demeanor at all times, until his VillainousBreakdown.
* TheStarscream: Chane and Huey assume him to be this; although he does not specifically plan to bring about Huey's downfall, Huey knows that he ''would'' if said downfall would enable him to become immortal himself.
* StrawHypocrite:
** He isn't really devoted to Huey. He just wants immortality.
** He also claims to be "too much of a gentleman" to let his men search a woman yet, he shows no remorse at the possibility of ''killing'' one or a little girl.
* VillainousBreakdown: Has one when he's beaten down by Jacuzzi.
* WouldHurtAChild: He plans to murder the senator's daughter and leave her body on the side of the railroad as a terrorist threat against Senator Beriam.

[[folder:Spike]]

The Lemures' sniper. In the anime the audience is led to believe that he dies aboard the ''Flying Pussyfoot'' - whereas in the novels he survives the blast, albeit blinded and scarred. He ends up working for Senator Beriam alongside the Former Felix Walken, and begins training Sonja Bake in the ways of sharpshooting.

* BlindWeaponmaster: While Spike is training Sonja to act as a sniper in his place, it's not exactly certain that he's completely useless with a gun now. After all, in 1933 [[spoiler:it seems that he's the one who shoots Chi in the shoulder through a window, despite being blind.]]
* CoveredWithScars: After nearly dying aboard the ''Flying Pussyfoot'', at least.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Money is Spike's prime motivator, which is why he finds it very easy to start working for the same man the Lemures considered an enemy in 1931.
* SniperRifle: Spike's sniper rifle is custom-made, and its barrel is longer than regular models.
