[[caption-width-right:231:"You are a good man, Mr. Van Alden. There is nothing to fear."]]

A Norwegian nanny that Van Alden hires to look after his baby when both Lucy and his wife leave him. She is instantly smitten with him and agrees to leave with him for Cicero [[spoiler: where they live as a married couple.]] Played by Christiane Seidel.

!!Tropes
* EuropeansAreKinky: [[spoiler: She's a 180º compared to Rose.]]

* [[spoiler: LadyMacbeth]] To Van Alden.

** MysteriousWoman
* OutlawCouple: With Van Alden, although their relationship is professional. [[spoiler: At first.]]
* [[spoiler: ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: In "You'd Be Surprised" she attacks a federal agent that she thinks has come to arrest Van Alden with a meat mallet. Poor guy only wanted to complain about an iron that Van Alden had sold him. Oops.]]

The Commodore's long-term lawyer, and following his death, Gillian's. Played by Dominic Chianese.

* TheMentor: Briefly, to Jimmy.

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BabetteBoardwalkEmpireSmaller_8891.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:200:"I'm much too tough, sweetie"]]

Hostess and manager of the Atlantic City restaurant Babette's Supper Club. Played by Tracy Lynn Middendorf.

!!Tropes

* TheBartender
* BodyHorror: She says nonchalantly that she uses tapeworms to keep her figure. Given the [[ThatOldTimePrescription time]] [[ScienceMarchesOn period]] and her [[OutOfFocus testimonial presence]] it's unclear if it was a joke.
* IronLady: Commands respect; friendly but firm, she shoots down Gyp's advances joking that she is too tough for him.
* LifeOfTheParty: The "it comes with the job description" hostess variety.
* MysteriousWoman
* NiceHat: You'll be hard-pressed to find a scene where she does not wear it.
* OneOfTheBoys: She always dresses in male clothing, even when not working.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* OutOfFocus: She seems to be aware of Nucky's organization if not an outright ally of him. And that's all we can say about her.
* SelfMadeWoman: Manager of her own club, which is not a LegitimateBusinessmensSocialClub despite being a usual hangout.
* UncertainDoom: It's unknown if [[spoiler:she's killed when Rosetti blows up her club.]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Her fans]] are [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse understandably worried.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: As of the end of Season 3.

!'''Isabelle Jeunet'''

[[quoteright:208:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/isabelle-jeunet_small_502.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:208:"Do you bathe?"]]
The French owner of the haute couture dress shop ''La Belle Femme'', set next to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Nucky forces her to fire her long time assistant and give the job to Margaret in order to help her, and she doesn't take it well at all (nor makes any attempt to hide it). Played by Anna Katarina.

!!Tropes:
* BadBoss: To Margaret, and after she leaves, to her replacement.
* FakeNationality: Played by a swiss actress.
* FrenchJerk
* GrandeDame
* GratuitousFrench
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: She asks Margaret to use her influence on Nucky to get a lower rent for the shop, but then has to give her one of her most expensive dresses for free as a payment.
* LastNameBasis: She makes Margaret call her ''Madame'' Jeunet. Nucky is amused when he founds out because to him she is just "Isabelle".
* OldMaid: She is "a woman alone".
* [[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign This Is Your Name On Foreign]]: She addresses Margaret as "Marguerite".

!'''Rose Van Alden'''

[[quoteright:249:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rose-Van-Alden_8690.png]]
[[caption-width-right:249:"I want to give you a son, Nelson."]]
Agent Van Alden's very proper, very Christian wife. She wants to be a good woman and [[LawOfInverseFertility desires a child more than anything in the world]]. She also worships the ground her husband walks on, at least until she finds out he cheated on her with Lucy and fathered a child he intended to force her to adopt. She divorces him at the end of season two. Played by Enid Graham.

!!Tropes:
* AllWomenArePrudes: She dresses conservatively and only has sex with the lights off.
* TheDogBitesBack: Rose is ''not'' okay with Nelson getting Lucy pregnant and intending to keep her baby and pass it off as theirs, no matter how desperately she wants a child. She slaps and bites him in a confrontation after Abigail's birth, and two episodes later, serves Nelson with divorce papers.
* ExtremeDoormat
* TheFundamentalist
* LawOfInverseFertility
* WomenAreWiser: Though a conservative Christian, she has the common sense to put her beliefs aside when the situation requires. She considers surgery in order to cure her sterility and she takes care of Lucy right after she gives birth instead of trying to blame her for her husband's infidelity. She also has an easier time displaying her emotions and showing preoccupation for her husband's well being, in contrast to her spouse's icy demeanor.

!'''Pearl'''

[[quoteright:276:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pearl-boardwalkempire_3008.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:276:"Who is going to love me now?"]]
A 18 year-old prostitute from the brothel that Torrio runs his operation out of, who wishes to move to California and become an actress. She and Jimmy have a relationship and plan to run away together until members of a rival gang disfigure her as a message to Jimmy, and she kills herself. Played by Emily Meade.

!!Tropes:
* BreakTheCutie
* DrivenToSuicide
** DeathByDisfigurement
* FacialHorror
* {{Fanservice}}: She's topless in her first appearance.
** FanDisservice: The scene where she, high on opium, tries to go back to work while sporting a huge scar across her face.
* FirstNameBasis
* FunctionalAddict: She is addicted to opium.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold
* TheMistress: To Jimmy.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge

!'''Roger [=McAllister=]'''

[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BE-3_7-Gillian-Roger_1618.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:235:"You're talkin' funny."]]
An innocent Jimmy lookalike who gets caught up in Gillian's web of lies halfway through Season 3. Played by Billy Magnussen.

!!Tropes:
* AudienceSurrogate: Alternately turned on and weirded out by Gillian. This should sound familiar to most of the male audience members.
* BerserkButton: He got in a fight because he didn't like how other guy was treating a girl and has a body [[GoodScarsEvilScars scar]] as a result.
* [[spoiler: DeathBySex]]
* [[spoiler: DeadlyBath]]
* DumbBlonde
* TheDrifter: The story of his life. He moves from town to town doing menial work and has only money for the week. He claims to have been all over North America.
* InnocentBystander
* NiceGuy
-->'''Gillian''': You really are a rather decent person, aren't you?
* ReplacementGoldfish: Of Jimmy, for Gillian. [[ExaggeratedTrope Taken to the extreme]] when she [[spoiler: kills him and uses his corpse to stage Jimmy's death.]]
* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe]]

!'''Mrs. [=McGarry=]'''

[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/be-mrs-mcgarry_7053.png]]
[[caption-width-right:235:"Temperance was meant to protect women, Margaret. But the ballot box will free us."]]
The leader of the Women's Temperance League's Atlantic City branch. She is a staunch supporter of Nucky, unaware of his criminal dealings. Played by Dana Ivey.

!!Tropes:

* CoolOldLady
* DeterminedWidow: She finances her political activities with the money left to her by her late husband, an oil tycoon.
* GrandeDame
* LastNameBasis
* TheMentor: To Margaret.
* [[MoralGuardians Moral Guardian]]: Subverted. She is one when it comes to alcohol, but can be considered a proto-feminist.
* PrettyInMink
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Margaret confesses to her that a "powerful" man has made her a proposition, but that he won't marry her. Instead of riding a high horse, [=McGarry=] tells Margaret that she is free to do what she wants, but advices her about birth control so she does not find herself with a third child and abandoned.

!'''Father Ed Brennan'''

[[quoteright:258:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/father-brennan_3768.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:258:"Make sure he's prepared to list his sins honestly and thoroughly tomorrow. You also. For your own confession."]]
A Catholic Irish priest, head of Saint Finbar's Church in Atlantic City. Played by Michael Cumpsty.

!!Tropes:

* AnalogyBackfire: His allegory of Hell and Heaven both as people sat next to a large table, with the food too far to take it and only very long spoons to help themselves is bought by Margaret, but goes straight over Nucky's head.[[note]]In Hell they starve because the content falls off the spoons before they can eat it; in Heaven they use the spoons to feed each other.[[/note]]
-->''Couldn't they bend their arms?''
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Compares Teddy to "the cruel Jews [...] who taunted Jesus when he was on the cross".
* DemotedToExtra: In Season 3.
* HidingBehindReligion: All he does can be summed on him shaking Margaret for money.
* HolierThanThou
* NoodleIncident: Nucky addresses him by his given name and a nun claimed that they are "apparently close", but nothing more of their relationship is known.

!'''Rowland Smith'''

[[quoteright:219:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bw-rowland-smith_2076.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:219:"Mr. Thompson, you have to admit I'm pretty good at this."]]
A teenage wheelman from rural Pennsylvania that steals liquor from other bootleggers to sell it for a profit. Played by Nick Robinson.

!!Tropes:

* BaitAndSwitch: Nucky and co. first take him as an adult and resolve to kill him to make an example. They find that he is a scared 15-year old who ignores what they did to his partner, Nate. [[spoiler: Then they find that he is actually an adult (and a liar) and Nucky kills him. Up to that point, the episode looked like a tailor-made introduction for Rowland as a new recurring character.]]
* [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot]]: [[spoiler: Shot in the back of the head by Nucky to remind Owen of who is in charge.]]
* [[spoiler: ConMan]]: [[spoiler: When he thinks that he has Nucky already in the pocket he reveals that he is actually 19 years-old and a smoker. Nucky then kills him.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDriver
* RefugeInAudacity: See StaringDownCthulhu.
* SesquipedalianSmith
* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell my name with a W]]
* StaringDownCthulhu: When Nucky comes to kill him he suit-talks him into giving him a job. [[spoiler: It fails.]]
* StreetUrchin: [[spoiler: Subverted. He probably was one, but he is over 18 already.]]
* [[spoiler: YoungerThanTheyLook]]: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagged]]. [[spoiler: He initially comes as an OlderThanTheyLook 15-year old, but is actually a YoungerThanTheyLook 19-year old. The actor was 17 when he shot his episode.]]

!'''Roy Phillips'''

A businessman just arrived to Atlantic City for Season 4. Played by Ron Livingstone.

[[caption-width-right:257:"Not every insult requires a response".]]

The Commodore's long-term lawyer, and following his death, Gillian's. Played by Dominic Chianese.



* AcceptableEthnicTargets: In-universe. He has the misfortune of being German in a country that just fought in World War I.
* BattleButler: [[LetsGetDangerous Surprisingly]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Shows in "Belle Femme" that he's apparently more than just a loyal butler.
* [[BigNo Big "NEIN!"]]: In "Belle Femme".

* BumblingSidekick
* ButtMonkey
* TheCassandra: Attempts to warn Nucky in "Two Imposters" that Nucky has no bodyguards around who aren't being paid. [[spoiler: It turns out to be irrelevant because Rosetti kills them before they have an opportunity to defect anyway.]]
* TheCastShowOff: Besides being an actor, Anthony Laciura is a voice instructor and opera singer. He displays his talent in "What Does the Bee Do?".
* [[spoiler: ADeathInTheLimelight]]: [[spoiler: Averted in "Two Imposters". He gets shot, gets a lot more screen time than usual, but is operated on and survives.]]
* TheDriver: Doubles as Nucky's chaffeur after Jimmy decides to pursue his own business.
* FakeNationality: Anthony Laciura is Italian-American.
* FunnyForeigner

* ServileSnarker: A hilarious blink-and-you'll-miss-it comment in "Two Boats and a Lifeguard", to a soldier making anti-German comments:
-->''Asshole.''
* UndyingLoyalty: When he is concerned, Nucky is ''always'' innocent and ''always'' means well. In "Two Imposters" he refuses to leave Nucky's side even when Nucky orders him to and [[spoiler: when he is shot and bleeding out from the wound]] his only concern is Nucky's safety.

!'''Luann Pratt'''

[[quoteright:279:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Luann-Pratt_6336.png]]

!!Tropes:

* BaitAndSwitch: Nucky and co. first take him as an adult and resolve to kill him to make an example. They find that he is a scared 15-year old who ignores what they did to his partner, Nate. [[spoiler: Then they find that he is actually an adult (and a liar) and Nucky kills him.

* [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot]]: [[spoiler: Shot in the back of the head by Nucky to remind Owen of who is in charge.]]

* [[spoiler: YoungerThanTheyLook]]: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagged]]. [[spoiler: He initially comes as an OlderThanTheyLook 15-year old, but is actually a YoungerThanTheyLook 19-year old. The actor was 17 when he shot his episode.]]

Played by Paz de la Huerta.
Anthony Laciura.



* [[BlackBraAndPanties Black]] LingerieScene: She's either particularly attached to her last purchase with Nucky's money, or it is the only thing she still can fit in while in her third trimester.
* BrainlessBeauty: Sometimes bordering [[ManChild Woman Child]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Quite a bit in season 2.
* DarkMistress
* FluffyFashionFeathers
* GoldDigger: Like whoa. With a disturbing tendency to call her paramours "Daddy" and demand pretty things.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl
* JumpingOutOfACake: In "Anastasia", for Nucky's birthday.
* LawOfInverseFertility
* TheMissusAndTheEx: Her relation with Margaret is full of contempt and [[WomanScorned scorn]].
* TheMistress: Technically, to ''Van Alden''.
* MsFanservice: By far the most frequent source of nudity in the series. It's harder to find an episode where she doesn't show something.
* PrettyInMink: Has a giant fox-fur coat.
* PutOnABus: She left Atlantic City permanently after giving birth to Van Alden's baby.
* ReallyGetsAround
* RichesToRags
* SingleMomStripper: Subverted. Lucy has her daughter only because she is to be paid for it, and despite a brief maternal bonding after birth she has no problem abandoning her.
* TakeThatAudience: Lucy is often considered TheScrappy by the fandom, who extend their revilement to the actress behind her. Thus, the scene where she rehearses a monologue from the play of the same name in "A Dangerous Maid" while staring at the camera (standing for a mirror) can only be taken as an open comment by Paz de la Huerta that yes, she can act. To ice the cake, the character in the play is also a former showgirl, like Lucy, and the monologue in question is about how she knows that people talk bad about her behind her back and how she is better than other people think.
* [[BettyAndVeronica Veronica]]: To Margaret's Betty.
* WomanScorned: To Margaret, but not Nucky.

!!Tropes:
* AbusiveParents: Her father "thinks that a fist is a good way to end an argument."
* [[spoiler: ADeathInTheLimelight]]: [[spoiler:"The Pony"]]
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Showcased by her reconciliation line "I want you to be my gangster"
* BaitAndSwitch: "The Pony". It looks like [[spoiler: she and Nucky are going to break up. Then that they are going to have a more straighforward and honest relationship. Then she gets killed.]]
* BedmateReveal: With Nucky in "Resolution".
* TheCastShowOff: Sings a duet with Eddie Cantor in "Resolution".
* FieryRedhead: Has all the aspects of the trope even if the hair color's fake.
* [[spoiler: FriendlyTarget]]: [[spoiler: She is not the intended target of Gyp, but dies in the explosion meant for Nucky. Gyp then phones Nucky to taunt him.]]
* TheFlapper: Probably the most classic version we've seen on the show. She certainly dresses the part.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl
* IHaveManyNames: "The Pony" reveals her birth name as Nadine Beckenbauer.
* {{Improv}}: InUniverse - asked to improvise a MeetCute scene for a screen test in "The Pony," Billie proceeds to knock it out of the ballpark.
* KaleidoscopeHair: You'd be hard pressed to name two episodes where she has the same hair color and style.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: As of "Bone for Tuna", quite literally.
* MayDecemberRomance: Nucky is three decades her senior.
* TheMistress: She's the latest in Nucky's long line, a fact not lost on certain other characters.
* MsFanservice
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Likely inspired by Dot King, another showgirl that lived in a New York apartment owned by Arnold Rothstein.
* ReallyGetsAround
* SatelliteLoveInterest: As Nucky wants to thwart her independence, most of her scenes involve him for some reason or another. It works both ways; Nucky gets absorved by the relation and starts to neglect his other affairs.
* StopHelpingMe: In universe, she tells this to Nucky - [[ControlFreak unsuccessfully]].

A long-time mistress for rich men, she becomes Margaret's neighbor and sort of friend after she accepts to move to a mansion paid by Nucky. Played by Megan Reinking.

!!Tropes:
* FalseFriend: She ceases all contact with Lucy after she's thrown out and only hangs out with Margaret because she's with Nucky now, showing she holds friends in the same esteem as boyfriends.
* FirstNameBasis
* FiveFingerDiscount: She has amassed almost $4000 by stealing whatever is in Harry's pocket when he is sleeping. Unfortunately for her, he discovers her stash and invests it in the [[TropeMaker original]] {{Ponzi}} scheme.
* GoldDigger: It doesn't take her long to find a new sugar daddy after breaking up with the previous one.

Paz de la Huerta.



* AnnoyingLaugh: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...
* BadBoss
* BoisterousWeakling: He tries to use [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz]]'s mysterious murder to make some extra money. The real killer, [[spoiler: Richard Harrow]] confronts him and he quickly reveals his true colours.
* ButtMonkey
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder
* DirtyCoward
* DumbassHasAPoint: In Season 2, he repeatedly tells Jimmy not to underestimate or provoke Manny Horvitz (especially since, at the time, Jimmy genuinely does owe Manny money and Manny is being pretty reasonable about it,) and his calling out Jimmy for doing so is a rare display of courage from him.
* FakeIrish: In story, a trait he takes from his inspiration, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mickey_Duffy Mickey Duffy]].
* HarmlessVillain: Only directly.
** NotSoHarmlessVillain: On the other hand, his agenda is guaranteed to have the phone of somebody that wants to kill you for one reason or another, and he has little qualms about using it were you to piss him off.
* TheHyena: In every scene he appears in, he's always laughing in an annoying way. Doubles as GigglingVillain.
* JerkAss: Quite possibly the biggest in the series, as everyone who meets him hates his guts. Almost every single male character has either threatened to kill him or assaulted him.
* KarmaHoudini:
** In the first season, he brings the D'Alessios to town and makes them target Nucky. The worst that happens to him for that is somebody spitting in his drink.
** A season later, Jimmy dishes up a little payback, but it's because Mickey pissed him off, not over Nucky. Even this proves to be a blessing in disguise since Mickey used his injuries to prove that he wasn't a willing ally of Jimmy. This saved him from being killed by Manny Horvitz.
** And then Lucky and Lansky use the life insurance policy he signed for Rothstein during the D'Alessios incident to cheat him into giving away his part of their shared business in Season 2. CallItKarma, indeed.
** Not that the life insurance has stopped him - in "To the Lost", he turns around and sets up a meet between Nucky and Manny Horvitz, which facilitates Jimmy's murder. Season 3 finds him once again working for Nucky, along with Manny. Eli even asks him: "How the fuck are you still alive?"
* {{Malaproper}}
* NiceHat: Paul Sparks [[http://connect.hbo.com/events/boardwalk-empire/live-q-paul-sparks/ defines]] his Charlot-like ''bombín'' hat as an integral part of the character. Inverted in that the very small hat looks unbecoming at times and it adds a goofy and immature layer to Doyle.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Based on Mickey Duffy, a Philadelphia bootlegger.
* NoHonorAmongThieves
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While he often seems TooDumbToLive, he's smarter than he looks and continues to live and succeed due to his amazing talent for backstabbing his associates at the right time.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: On the receiving end. Not many people feels sorry for him when Jimmy tosses him over the balcony at Babette's in "Two Boats and a Lifeguard". Not many tears are shed when Richard threatens him into a sobbing mess in front of Nucky.
* TheStoolPigeon: His contacts include dirty Prohibition Agents.
* TooDumbToLive: While not known for his intelligence, exploiting the death of [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz]] and claiming the kill as his own when the real killer murdered him for personal reasons is probably the dumbest thing he could have done.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Surprisingly averted. Despite making two colossal mistakes on the job, he's still alive.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He is regularly the intended target of this trope and barely manages to avert it each time. People are just not interested in having him around once he is no longer useful. On the other hand, the times he has been told this and ''managed to escape in one piece'' are so much by the third season that it begins to get lampshaded in the dialogue:

* KarmaHoudini: The Commodore and Gillian see her as this. She did get away with attempted murder, but if ever there was an AssholeVictim, it was the Commodore.
* KickTheDog: Poor Jerry never hurt a soul.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: The Commodore, on the other hand...
* KindlyHousekeeper: Well, she acts kindly enough to most people...
* LargeHam
* {{Mammy}}: Subverted. While she acts the part, Luann is actually quite crafty and has a far from benevolent agenda of her own.
* PerfectPoison: Averted. The Commodore still clings to life after months of continuous poisoning, and Luann eventually gets caught before the payoff.
* PutOnABus: Nucky gives her money and tells her to skip town after her murder attempt is discovered.
* SassyBlackWoman
* ServileSnarker
* UnexpectedInheritance: The Commodore named her his heir before he recognized Jimmy and apparently forgot to change his will even after she was discovered trying to kill him. Jimmy then has the will destroyed.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: As illustrated by her quote, she takes the slow path with the Commodore because she regards the straightforward one as [[PragmaticVillainy messy and impractical]].

* CannotSpitItOut: He was present when Van Alden killed Sebso. He tries to tell Nucky about it, but his JerkAss attitude scares him from talking.

* [[spoiler: LadyMacbeth]] To Van Alden.

** MysteriousWoman
* OutlawCouple: With Van Alden, although their relationship is professional. [[spoiler: At first.]]
* [[spoiler: ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: In "You'd Be Surprised" she attacks a federal agent that she thinks has come to arrest Van Alden with a meat mallet. Poor guy only wanted to complain about an iron that Van Alden had sold him. Oops.]]

[[caption-width-right:200:"I'm much too tough, sweetie"]]

Hostess and manager of the Atlantic City restaurant Babette's Supper Club. Played by Tracy Lynn Middendorf.

!!Tropes

* TheBartender
* BodyHorror: She says nonchalantly that she uses tapeworms to keep her figure. Given the [[ThatOldTimePrescription time]] [[ScienceMarchesOn period]] and her [[OutOfFocus testimonial presence]] it's unclear if it was a joke.
* IronLady: Commands respect; friendly but firm, she shoots down Gyp's advances joking that she is too tough for him.
* LifeOfTheParty: The "it comes with the job description" hostess variety.
* MysteriousWoman
* NiceHat: You'll be hard-pressed to find a scene where she does not wear it.
* OneOfTheBoys: She always dresses in male clothing, even when not working.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* OutOfFocus: She seems to be aware of Nucky's organization if not an outright ally of him. And that's all we can say about her.
* SelfMadeWoman: Manager of her own club, which is not a LegitimateBusinessmensSocialClub despite being a usual hangout.
* UncertainDoom: It's unknown if [[spoiler:she's killed when Rosetti blows up her club.]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Her fans]] are [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse understandably worried.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: As of the end of Season 3.

!'''Isabelle Jeunet'''

[[caption-width-right:208:"Do you bathe?"]]
The French owner of the haute couture dress shop ''La Belle Femme'', set next to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Nucky forces her to fire her long time assistant and give the job to Margaret in order to help her, and she doesn't take it well at all (nor makes any attempt to hide it). Played by Anna Katarina.

* FakeNationality: Played by a swiss actress.
* FrenchJerk
* GrandeDame
* GratuitousFrench

* LastNameBasis: She makes Margaret call her ''Madame'' Jeunet. Nucky is amused when he founds out because to him she is just "Isabelle".
* OldMaid: She is "a woman alone".
* [[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign This Is Your Name On Foreign]]: She addresses Margaret as "Marguerite".

!'''Rose Van Alden'''

[[quoteright:249:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rose-Van-Alden_8690.png]]
[[caption-width-right:249:"I want to give you a son, Nelson."]]
Agent Van Alden's very proper, very Christian wife. She wants to be a good woman and [[LawOfInverseFertility desires a child more than anything in the world]]. She also worships the ground her husband walks on, at least until she finds out he cheated on her with Lucy and fathered a child he intended to force her to adopt. She divorces him at the end of season two. Played by Enid Graham.

!!Tropes:
* AllWomenArePrudes: She dresses conservatively and only has sex with the lights off.
* TheDogBitesBack: Rose is ''not'' okay with Nelson getting Lucy pregnant and intending to keep her baby and pass it off as theirs, no matter how desperately she wants a child. She slaps and bites him in a confrontation after Abigail's birth, and two episodes later, serves Nelson with divorce papers.
* ExtremeDoormat
* TheFundamentalist
* LawOfInverseFertility
* WomenAreWiser: Though a conservative Christian, she has the common sense to put her beliefs aside when the situation requires. She considers surgery in order to cure her sterility and she takes care of Lucy right after she gives birth instead of trying to blame her for her husband's infidelity. She also has an easier time displaying her emotions and showing preoccupation for her husband's well being, in contrast to her spouse's icy demeanor.

!'''Pearl'''

[[caption-width-right:276:"Who is going to love me now?"]]

[[caption-width-right:235:"You're talkin' funny."]]
An innocent Jimmy lookalike who gets caught up in Gillian's web of lies halfway through Season 3. Played by Billy Magnussen.

* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe]]

[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/be-mrs-mcgarry_7053.png]]
[[caption-width-right:235:"Temperance was meant to protect women, Margaret. But the ballot box will free us."]]
The leader of the Women's Temperance League's Atlantic City branch. She is a staunch supporter of Nucky, unaware of his criminal dealings. Played by Dana Ivey.

!!Tropes:

* CoolOldLady
* DeterminedWidow: She finances her political activities with the money left to her by her late husband, an oil tycoon.
* GrandeDame
* LastNameBasis
* TheMentor: To Margaret.
* [[MoralGuardians Moral Guardian]]: Subverted. She is one when it comes to alcohol, but can be considered a proto-feminist.
* PrettyInMink
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Margaret confesses to her that a "powerful" man has made her a proposition, but that he won't marry her. Instead of riding a high horse, [=McGarry=] tells Margaret that she is free to do what she wants, but advices her about birth control so she does not find herself with a third child and abandoned.

!'''Father Ed Brennan'''

[[quoteright:258:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/father-brennan_3768.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:258:"Make sure he's prepared to list his sins honestly and thoroughly tomorrow. You also. For your own confession."]]
A Catholic Irish priest, head of Saint Finbar's Church in Atlantic City. Played by Michael Cumpsty.

!!Tropes:

* AnalogyBackfire: His allegory of Hell and Heaven both as people sat next to a large table, with the food too far to take it and only very long spoons to help themselves is bought by Margaret, but goes straight over Nucky's head.[[note]]In Hell they starve because the content falls off the spoons before they can eat it; in Heaven they use the spoons to feed each other.[[/note]]
-->''Couldn't they bend their arms?''
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Compares Teddy to "the cruel Jews [...] who taunted Jesus when he was on the cross".
* DemotedToExtra: In Season 3.
* HidingBehindReligion: All he does can be summed on him shaking Margaret for money.
* HolierThanThou
* NoodleIncident: Nucky addresses him by his given name and a nun claimed that they are "apparently close", but nothing more of their relationship is known.

[[caption-width-right:219:"Mr. Thompson, you have to admit I'm pretty good at this."]]
A teenage wheelman from rural Pennsylvania that steals liquor from other bootleggers to sell it for a profit. Played by Nick Robinson.

!!Tropes:

* BaitAndSwitch: Nucky and co. first take him as an adult and resolve to kill him to make an example. They find that he is a scared 15-year old who ignores what they did to his partner, Nate. [[spoiler: Then they find that he is actually an adult (and a liar) and Nucky kills him. Up to that point, the episode looked like a tailor-made introduction for Rowland as a new recurring character.]]
* [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot]]: [[spoiler: Shot in the back of the head by Nucky to remind Owen of who is in charge.]]
* [[spoiler: ConMan]]: [[spoiler: When he thinks that he has Nucky already in the pocket he reveals that he is actually 19 years-old and a smoker. Nucky then kills him.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDriver
* RefugeInAudacity: See StaringDownCthulhu.
* SesquipedalianSmith
* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell my name with a W]]
* StaringDownCthulhu: When Nucky comes to kill him he suit-talks him into giving him a job. [[spoiler: It fails.]]
* StreetUrchin: [[spoiler: Subverted. He probably was one, but he is over 18 already.]]
* [[spoiler: YoungerThanTheyLook]]: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagged]]. [[spoiler: He initially comes as an OlderThanTheyLook 15-year old, but is actually a YoungerThanTheyLook 19-year old. The actor was 17 when he shot his episode.]]

A businessman just arrived to Atlantic City for Season 4. Played by Ron Livingstone.

[[caption-width-right:284:"Would you pay a dime to see this?"]]
A shy, socially stunted former WorldWarOne sniper who lost half his face in the battlefield and carries a tin prosthetic mask to hide what is missing.

Yes, the battlefield and carries other characters also roll their eyes when they meet him. He is also a tin prosthetic mask rival to hide what is missing. ''Very'' desensitized to violence, but at the same time craves human relations. He meets Jimmy at a military hospital in Chicago, and becomes his right-hand man. Chalky. Played by Jack Huston.
Paul Sparks.



* {{Adorkable}}: His interactions with children, especially Tommy, and Julia.
* AffablyEvil: He's a sensitive and polite young man who is really likable. On the other hand, he's a ruthless killer and his suggested strategy for drawing out an enemy was to kill their innocent family members and associates.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. The first thing Jimmy does for him is to get him laid, though.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type II.]]
* AteHisGun: In "Gimcrack and Bunkum". [[InterruptedSuicide He gets better]].
* {{Badass}}: Has killed 63 men, both in and out of the First World War. After "Margate Sands", we can add 12 or more to that number.
** BadassLongcoat
** HandicappedBadass
** SubmissiveBadass: Richard is a quiet, sensitive cold-blooded killer who never raises his voice to the people he works for. However, it is a mistake to think that this means that he will not act on his own.
* BattleButler: He isn't quite a butler, but he serves as protector for the Thompson kids in season one and Tommy Darmody in season three.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Subverted. He is horribly disfigured but possibly the most moral criminal on the series.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: So very averted.
* BerserkButton: Disrespecting or hurting anyone close to him: Jimmy, Angela, Tommy, Julia...
* BestServedCold: He waited a year and a half, but in "Resolution" he finally gets revenge on [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz for killing Angela]]. As a sniper he is trained to wait patiently to make his kills.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Richard is easily one of the nicest, most genuinely thoughtful and caring people on the entire show. However, he has, by far, the highest individual body count of anyone in the entire series.
* BreakoutCharacter: Like Chalky White, his popularity in the first season made him quickly promoted to a series regular.
* BloodBrothers: With Jimmy.
* BoomHeadshot: Most likely survived one in the First World War given his injuries. He in turn is very fond of dishing these out.
* CannotTellALie: In his first scene, he claims not to be able to lie. Jimmy gets him to tell a small lie to the hospital staff, and a friendship is born. Since then, his scarce lies have been [[BadLiar easily smelled]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Richard debuts late in the first season saying that he does not believe that people can be emotionally connected to others, and offers to kill the D'Alessio brothers innocent family members just to force them out of hiding, were Jimmy to give him the order. Throughout Season 2, Jimmy reassures him that their relationship is not strictly business but that he actually cares for him. Richard also genuinely connects with Jimmy's wife Angela and is hurt when she is killed by Manny Horvitz. Now, in Season 3, [[spoiler:Richard's main drive in life is to look after Jimmy and Angela's orphaned son Tommy. He avenges Angela's death by killing Manny, and even justifies this, differentiating between Angela and Jimmy's deaths - Jimmy was a soldier and knew what he was getting into by meeting with Nucky that night; Angela was an innocent who suffered needlessly due to Manny's DisproportionateRetribution.]]
* CleanupCrew: Twice in "Under God's Power She Flourishes". There's a straightforward instance at the end of the episode when Jimmy wakes up to see Richard cleaning up the Commodore's body and washing the blood off the floor, and a [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] allusion earlier in the episode when Richard cries at finding Angela's blood still on the floor.
* ColdSniper
* TheConscience: The one guy out of the Young Turks who will be completely honest with Jimmy, as well as question why Jimmy wants to do something.
* CreepyMonotone: Richard always talks in a dispassionate manner, even when he offers to murder the family members of the D'Alessios or when he threatens to kill Paul Sagorsky.
* DisproportionateRetribution: In "Gimcrack and Bunkum", a crony of The Commodore disrespects Jimmy and bloodies his face. Harrow, under Jimmy's orders, ''scalps'' him.
* TheDragon: To Jimmy.
* DrivenToSuicide: Luckily for him, it gets interrupted.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While Eli doesn't even hesitate in suggesting they kill Nucky and Capone suggests Richard be the one to do it, Richard himself absolutely refuses.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He makes TomWaits sound like a choir boy.
* EyeScream / FacialHorror / NightmareFace: There. Are. No. Words.
** His face literally makes children cry (Emily cries hysterically when she sees him without his mask on in "Emerald City").
* FakeAmerican: Jack Huston is English.
* FreakinessShame
* TheGrotesque: A very sympathetic version who you want to hug (at least when he's not killing people).
* GunsAkimbo: [[spoiler: His rampage through the Artemis Club in "Margate Sands".]]
* GutturalGrowler: Due to his war injuries, he talks in a gravelly, flat voice.
* HandCannon: When he is not carrying [[SawedOffShotgun an actual cannon]].
* HeroicSacrifice: Not a conventional one but it's made clear that his rescue mission of Tommy and the subsequent killings had set him back to his state in Season 1 in terms of psychological health.
* HiddenDepths: Is a fairly good dancer and has quite a sweet sense of humor.
* HitmanWithAHeart: Cold-blooded sniper who dreams of having a family and loves children.
* HonoraryUncle: To Tommy.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Has a healthy envy of Jimmy's family life and longs to have one of his own.
-->How does it feel, to have everything?
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Justified in that Harrow is an Army-trained sniper. Still manages to pull off an impressive number of BoomHeadshot moments, particularly in "Margate Sands," with handguns, a hip fired shotgun, and a non-aimed rifle.
** Notice that he only ever uses one bullet per mook he kills in the Artemis Club battle. "One shot one kill" indeed.
* ItGetsEasier
* ItsPersonal: He will [[BestServedCold wait as long as it takes]] to get his revenge. On the other hand, he sees no reason to seek revenge for things that occur as part of a war (or a MobWar) if no innocents were harmed. He takes bloody revenge for [[spoiler: Angela's]] murder but sees no cause to avenge [[spoiler: Jimmy's death. In his view there is nothing personal about soldiers killing and dying during a war.]]. Similarly, Richard threatens [[spoiler: Mickey Doyle after he takes credit for Manny's death]]
* KickTheDog: "I could kill their mother. The sisters. And the dentist. That would make [the D'Alessios] stick their heads up".
* LackofEmpathy: Starts out like this. It's rather telling that out of a group of himself, Jimmy Darmondy, and Al Capone, the last two ruthless in their own right, Richard is the one who is sent to kill a fourteen year old boy
* MoeGreeneSpecial: He is a rare, living, breathing example of this trope. Perhaps because of this, he's rather fond of dishing this out to enemies, as Liam, [[spoiler: Manny]] and the [[BullyingADragon poor]] [[TooDumbToLive bastards]] [[{{Mook}} working]] for [[spoiler: Rosetti]] can testify.
* MoralityPet: To Jimmy. Angela, even after her death, Tommy, and Julia are his.
* OminousWalk: Tends toward these when "working".
* OneManArmy: Pulls one off in "Margate Sands".
* PapaWolf: Harming Tommy is one of the quickest ways to get killed on this show. When his first attempt in getting Tommy out of the Artemis Club and Rosetti's hands fails, [[spoiler:he returns in an epic rampage that kills almost all of Rosetti's men to get him back.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To Tommy, much to [[EvilMatriarch Gillian's]] displeasure.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: His brutal murder of [[spoiler:Manny Horvitz]], his intimidation of [[{{Jerkass}} Mickey Doyle]] and his [[spoiler: fullout slaughter of Gyp Rosetti's men.]]
* PromotedToOpeningTitles: In the second season.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Sleater's Red. Blue to Jimmy's Red, too.
* RefugeInAudacity: He walks into Nucky's office [[spoiler: holding Mickey Doyle at gunpoint]] and forces him to admit that Mickey's claims that [[spoiler: he killed Manny Horvitz]] were false to Nucky. Why? Because [[spoiler: Richard killed Manny for what he did to Angela]], and he didn't want Mickey taking the credit.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Gillian kicking him out to separate him from Tommy was a really, ''really'' [[TemptingFate bad move.]] Richard tells her implicitly that he'll be back for Tommy. He comes back and despite there [[spoiler: being a small army waiting at The Artemis Club,]] there is no amount of firepower that can keep him from Tommy.
* ShellshockedVeteran: To the point where he's so desensitized to violence that he has no qualms about becoming a contract killer.
* ShroudedInMyth: Seems to be heading in this direction after [[spoiler: anonymously killing Manny Horvitz and 90% of Gyp Rosetti's crew.]]
* TheStoic
* ThrowItIn: Jack Huston came up with Harrow's guttural voice himself, using MarlonBrando's cotton-in-the-mouth trick from ''Film/TheGodfather''.
* TranquilFury: His disfigured face and monotone voice makes it hard for him to express emotions so it's hard to tell when he is angry, with some exceptions:
** When Gillian [[spoiler: orders him to stop stop talking to Tommy about Angela]] you can feel the anger emanating from his body even though his posture and tone of voice never change.
** The most visibly angry he's gotten is with Paul after he insults both him and his girlfriend, Paul's daughter. Even then, his voice was hardly louder than usual.
* TwoFaced: Literally, and metaphorically.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Jimmy. Later passed to his son, Tommy.
* WildCard: Following the death of Jimmy.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: You just want to hug him and let him know that it will all be right, but ''Holy Mother Of God'' will he bring down the thunder if you cross those that he cares for.
* [[WouldHitAGirl Would Mob Hit A Girl]]: Conversed with Jimmy. While he seems adamantly averse to laying hands on a woman, he is perfectly fine with dispaching them by other means if it serves the purposes of a MobWar.
* WouldHurtAChild: He shoots 14-year-old Pius D'Alessio to death, even though Pius tries to surrender. To be fair, despite his age, Pius wasn't an innocent child but a violent criminal.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: Piss off Richard enough and at best, you'll get off easy, as [[spoiler: Paul]] did with simply getting beaten and choked. At worst, you'll find yourself like [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz.]] or like one of [[spoiler: Rosetti's]] men, where having a 10/1 advantage will give you no good.

[[caption-width-right:266:"I should see the other guy, right?"]]

The daughter of a drunken war veteran whom Richard meets at the American Legion, and now his love interest. Played by Wrenn Schmidt.

to:

* {{Adorkable}}: His interactions AnnoyingLaugh: Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...
* BadBoss
* BoisterousWeakling: He tries to use [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz]]'s mysterious murder to make some extra money. The real killer, [[spoiler: Richard Harrow]] confronts him and he quickly reveals his true colours.
* ButtMonkey
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder
* DirtyCoward
* DumbassHasAPoint: In Season 2, he repeatedly tells Jimmy not to underestimate or provoke Manny Horvitz (especially since, at the time, Jimmy genuinely does owe Manny money and Manny is being pretty reasonable about it,) and his calling out Jimmy for doing so is a rare display of courage from him.
* FakeIrish: In story, a trait he takes from his inspiration, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mickey_Duffy Mickey Duffy]].
* HarmlessVillain: Only directly.
** NotSoHarmlessVillain: On the other hand, his agenda is guaranteed to have the phone of somebody that wants to kill you for one reason or another, and he has little qualms about using it were you to piss him off.
* TheHyena: In every scene he appears in, he's always laughing in an annoying way. Doubles as GigglingVillain.
* JerkAss: Quite possibly the biggest in the series, as everyone who meets him hates his guts. Almost every single male character has either threatened to kill him or assaulted him.
* KarmaHoudini:
** In the first season, he brings the D'Alessios to town and makes them target Nucky. The worst that happens to him for that is somebody spitting in his drink.
** A season later, Jimmy dishes up a little payback, but it's because Mickey pissed him off, not over Nucky. Even this proves to be a blessing in disguise since Mickey used his injuries to prove that he wasn't a willing ally of Jimmy. This saved him from being killed by Manny Horvitz.
** And then Lucky and Lansky use the life insurance policy he signed for Rothstein during the D'Alessios incident to cheat him into giving away his part of their shared business in Season 2. CallItKarma, indeed.
** Not that the life insurance has stopped him - in "To the Lost", he turns around and sets up a meet between Nucky and Manny Horvitz, which facilitates Jimmy's murder. Season 3 finds him once again working for Nucky, along
with children, especially Tommy, Manny. Eli even asks him: "How the fuck are you still alive?"
* {{Malaproper}}
* NiceHat: Paul Sparks [[http://connect.hbo.com/events/boardwalk-empire/live-q-paul-sparks/ defines]] his Charlot-like ''bombín'' hat as an integral part of the character. Inverted in that the very small hat looks unbecoming at times
and Julia.it adds a goofy and immature layer to Doyle.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Based on Mickey Duffy, a Philadelphia bootlegger.
* NoHonorAmongThieves
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While he often seems TooDumbToLive, he's smarter than he looks and continues to live and succeed due to his amazing talent for backstabbing his associates at the right time.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: On the receiving end. Not many people feels sorry for him when Jimmy tosses him over the balcony at Babette's in "Two Boats and a Lifeguard". Not many tears are shed when Richard threatens him into a sobbing mess in front of Nucky.
* TheStoolPigeon: His contacts include dirty Prohibition Agents.
* TooDumbToLive: While not known for his intelligence, exploiting the death of [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz]] and claiming the kill as his own when the real killer murdered him for personal reasons is probably the dumbest thing he could have done.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Surprisingly averted. Despite making two colossal mistakes on the job, he's still alive.

* AffablyEvil: He's a sensitive YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He is regularly the intended target of this trope and polite young man who barely manages to avert it each time. People are just not interested in having him around once he is really likable. no longer useful. On the other hand, he's a ruthless killer and his suggested strategy for drawing out an enemy was to kill their innocent family members and associates.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. The first thing Jimmy does for him is to get him laid, though.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type II.]]
* AteHisGun: In "Gimcrack and Bunkum". [[InterruptedSuicide He gets better]].
* {{Badass}}: Has killed 63 men, both in and out of
the First World War. After "Margate Sands", we can add 12 or more to that number.
** BadassLongcoat
** HandicappedBadass
** SubmissiveBadass: Richard is a quiet, sensitive cold-blooded killer who never raises his voice to the people
times he works for. However, it is a mistake to think that has been told this means that he will not act on his own.
* BattleButler: He isn't quite a butler, but he serves as protector for
and ''managed to escape in one piece'' are so much by the Thompson kids in third season one and Tommy Darmody in season three.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Subverted. He is horribly disfigured but possibly the most moral criminal on the series.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: So very averted.
* BerserkButton: Disrespecting or hurting anyone close to him: Jimmy, Angela, Tommy, Julia...
* BestServedCold: He waited a year and a half, but in "Resolution" he finally gets revenge on [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz for killing Angela]]. As a sniper he is trained to wait patiently to make his kills.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Richard is easily one of the nicest, most genuinely thoughtful and caring people on the entire show. However, he has, by far, the highest individual body count of anyone in the entire series.
* BreakoutCharacter: Like Chalky White, his popularity in the first season made him quickly promoted to a series regular.
* BloodBrothers: With Jimmy.
* BoomHeadshot: Most likely survived one in the First World War given his injuries. He in turn is very fond of dishing these out.
* CannotTellALie: In his first scene, he claims not to be able to lie. Jimmy gets him to tell a small lie to the hospital staff, and a friendship is born. Since then, his scarce lies have been [[BadLiar easily smelled]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Richard debuts late in the first season saying that he does not believe that people can be emotionally connected to others, and offers to kill the D'Alessio brothers innocent family members just to force them out of hiding, were Jimmy to give him the order. Throughout Season 2, Jimmy reassures him that their relationship is not strictly business but that he actually cares for him. Richard also genuinely connects with Jimmy's wife Angela and is hurt when she is killed by Manny Horvitz. Now, in Season 3, [[spoiler:Richard's main drive in life is to look after Jimmy and Angela's orphaned son Tommy. He avenges Angela's death by killing Manny, and even justifies this, differentiating between Angela and Jimmy's deaths - Jimmy was a soldier and knew what he was getting into by meeting with Nucky that night; Angela was an innocent who suffered needlessly due to Manny's DisproportionateRetribution.]]
* CleanupCrew: Twice in "Under God's Power She Flourishes". There's a straightforward instance at the end of the episode when Jimmy wakes up to see Richard cleaning up the Commodore's body and washing the blood off the floor, and a [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] allusion earlier in the episode when Richard cries at finding Angela's blood still on the floor.
* ColdSniper
* TheConscience: The one guy out of the Young Turks who will be completely honest with Jimmy, as well as question why Jimmy wants to do something.
* CreepyMonotone: Richard always talks in a dispassionate manner, even when he offers to murder the family members of the D'Alessios or when he threatens to kill Paul Sagorsky.
* DisproportionateRetribution: In "Gimcrack and Bunkum", a crony of The Commodore disrespects Jimmy and bloodies his face. Harrow, under Jimmy's orders, ''scalps'' him.
* TheDragon: To Jimmy.
* DrivenToSuicide: Luckily for him, it gets interrupted.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While Eli doesn't even hesitate in suggesting they kill Nucky and Capone suggests Richard be the one to do it, Richard himself absolutely refuses.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He makes TomWaits sound like a choir boy.
* EyeScream / FacialHorror / NightmareFace: There. Are. No. Words.
** His face literally makes children cry (Emily cries hysterically when she sees him without his mask on in "Emerald City").
* FakeAmerican: Jack Huston is English.
* FreakinessShame
* TheGrotesque: A very sympathetic version who you want to hug (at least when he's not killing people).
* GunsAkimbo: [[spoiler: His rampage through the Artemis Club in "Margate Sands".]]
* GutturalGrowler: Due to his war injuries, he talks in a gravelly, flat voice.
* HandCannon: When he is not carrying [[SawedOffShotgun an actual cannon]].
* HeroicSacrifice: Not a conventional one but it's made clear that his rescue mission of Tommy and the subsequent killings had set him back to his state in Season 1 in terms of psychological health.
* HiddenDepths: Is a fairly good dancer and has quite a sweet sense of humor.
* HitmanWithAHeart: Cold-blooded sniper who dreams of having a family and loves children.
* HonoraryUncle: To Tommy.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Has a healthy envy of Jimmy's family life and longs to have one of his own.
-->How does it feel, to have everything?
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Justified in that Harrow is an Army-trained sniper. Still manages to pull off an impressive number of BoomHeadshot moments, particularly in "Margate Sands," with handguns, a hip fired shotgun, and a non-aimed rifle.
** Notice that he only ever uses one bullet per mook he kills in the Artemis Club battle. "One shot one kill" indeed.
* ItGetsEasier
* ItsPersonal: He will [[BestServedCold wait as long as it takes]] to get his revenge. On the other hand, he sees no reason to seek revenge for things that occur as part of a war (or a MobWar) if no innocents were harmed. He takes bloody revenge for [[spoiler: Angela's]] murder but sees no cause to avenge [[spoiler: Jimmy's death. In his view there is nothing personal about soldiers killing and dying during a war.]]. Similarly, Richard threatens [[spoiler: Mickey Doyle after he takes credit for Manny's death]]
* KickTheDog: "I could kill their mother. The sisters. And the dentist. That would make [the D'Alessios] stick their heads up".
* LackofEmpathy: Starts out like this. It's rather telling that out of a group of himself, Jimmy Darmondy, and Al Capone, the last two ruthless in their own right, Richard is the one who is sent to kill a fourteen year old boy
* MoeGreeneSpecial: He is a rare, living, breathing example of this trope. Perhaps because of this, he's rather fond of dishing this out to enemies, as Liam, [[spoiler: Manny]] and the [[BullyingADragon poor]] [[TooDumbToLive bastards]] [[{{Mook}} working]] for [[spoiler: Rosetti]] can testify.
* MoralityPet: To Jimmy. Angela, even after her death, Tommy, and Julia are his.
* OminousWalk: Tends toward these when "working".
* OneManArmy: Pulls one off in "Margate Sands".
* PapaWolf: Harming Tommy is one of the quickest ways to get killed on this show. When his first attempt in getting Tommy out of the Artemis Club and Rosetti's hands fails, [[spoiler:he returns in an epic rampage that kills almost all of Rosetti's men to get him back.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To Tommy, much to [[EvilMatriarch Gillian's]] displeasure.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: His brutal murder of [[spoiler:Manny Horvitz]], his intimidation of [[{{Jerkass}} Mickey Doyle]] and his [[spoiler: fullout slaughter of Gyp Rosetti's men.]]
* PromotedToOpeningTitles: In the second season.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Sleater's Red. Blue to Jimmy's Red, too.
* RefugeInAudacity: He walks into Nucky's office [[spoiler: holding Mickey Doyle at gunpoint]] and forces him to admit that Mickey's claims that [[spoiler: he killed Manny Horvitz]] were false to Nucky. Why? Because [[spoiler: Richard killed Manny for what he did to Angela]], and he didn't want Mickey taking the credit.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Gillian kicking him out to separate him from Tommy was a really, ''really'' [[TemptingFate bad move.]] Richard tells her implicitly that he'll be back for Tommy. He comes back and despite there [[spoiler: being a small army waiting at The Artemis Club,]] there is no amount of firepower that can keep him from Tommy.
* ShellshockedVeteran: To the point where he's so desensitized to violence that he has no qualms about becoming a contract killer.
* ShroudedInMyth: Seems to be heading in this direction after [[spoiler: anonymously killing Manny Horvitz and 90% of Gyp Rosetti's crew.]]
* TheStoic
* ThrowItIn: Jack Huston came up with Harrow's guttural voice himself, using MarlonBrando's cotton-in-the-mouth trick from ''Film/TheGodfather''.
* TranquilFury: His disfigured face and monotone voice makes it hard for him to express emotions so it's hard to tell when he is angry, with some exceptions:
** When Gillian [[spoiler: orders him to stop stop talking to Tommy about Angela]] you can feel the anger emanating from his body even though his posture and tone of voice never change.
** The most visibly angry he's gotten is with Paul after he insults both him and his girlfriend, Paul's daughter. Even then, his voice was hardly louder than usual.
* TwoFaced: Literally, and metaphorically.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Jimmy. Later passed to his son, Tommy.
* WildCard: Following the death of Jimmy.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: You just want to hug him and let him know
that it will all be right, but ''Holy Mother Of God'' will he bring down begins to get lampshaded in the thunder if dialogue:
-->'''Eli''': Let me ask
you cross those that he cares for.
* [[WouldHitAGirl Would Mob Hit A Girl]]: Conversed with Jimmy. While he seems adamantly averse to laying hands on a woman, he is perfectly fine with dispaching them by other means if it serves
something, Mickey. How the purposes of a MobWar.
* WouldHurtAChild: He shoots 14-year-old Pius D'Alessio to death, even though Pius tries to surrender. To be fair, despite his age, Pius wasn't an innocent child but a violent criminal.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: Piss off Richard enough and at best, you'll get off easy, as [[spoiler: Paul]] did with simply getting beaten and choked. At worst, you'll find yourself like [[spoiler: Manny Horvitz.]] or like one of [[spoiler: Rosetti's]] men, where having a 10/1 advantage will give
fuck are you no good.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder
* DirtyCoward
* DumbassHasAPoint: In Season 2, he repeatedly tells Jimmy not to underestimate or provoke Manny Horvitz (especially since, at the time, Jimmy genuinely does owe Manny money and Manny is being pretty reasonable about it,) and his calling out Jimmy for doing so is a rare display of courage from him.
* FakeIrish: In story, a trait he takes from his inspiration, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mickey_Duffy Mickey Duffy]].
* HarmlessVillain: Only directly.
** NotSoHarmlessVillain: On the other hand, his agenda is guaranteed to have the phone of somebody that wants to kill you for one reason or another, and he has little qualms about using it were you to piss him off.

* JerkAss: Quite possibly the biggest in the series, as everyone who meets him hates his guts. Almost every single male character has either threatened to kill him or assaulted him.
* KarmaHoudini:
** In the first season, he brings the D'Alessios to town and makes them target Nucky. The worst that happens to him for that is somebody spitting in his drink.
** A season later, Jimmy dishes up a little payback, but it's because Mickey pissed him off, not over Nucky. Even this proves to be a blessing in disguise since Mickey used his injuries to prove that he wasn't a willing ally of Jimmy. This saved him from being killed by Manny Horvitz.
** And then Lucky and Lansky use the life insurance policy he signed for Rothstein during the D'Alessios incident to cheat him into giving away his part of their shared business in Season 2. CallItKarma, indeed.
** Not that the life insurance has stopped him - in "To the Lost", he turns around and sets up a meet between Nucky and Manny Horvitz, which facilitates Jimmy's murder. Season 3 finds him once again working for Nucky, along with Manny. Eli even asks him: "How the fuck are you still alive?"

* AllThereInTheManual: According to William Forsythe, he suffers from migraines and dementia.
* [[spoiler:AnyoneCanDie: In the season 3 premiere. Making it the fourth consecutive episode ending with a major character death. The first of this series of deaths was Angela, by Munya's own hand.]]
* BadassGrandpa
* BaitTheDog: He initially comes across as a likable AlterKocker who loves jokes and is an "old school" man of honor, and then he begins to talk about stuffing the pieces of the guys that cross him in his fridge...
* BloodKnight
* TheButcher: Both literally and figuratively.
* {{Determinator}}: In "Battle of the Century" he grabs his attacker ''through a crystal window'' during an assassination attempt, overpowers him and sinks a meat cleaver on his head, all after taking a bullet to the shoulder!
* DisproportionateRetribution: Do ''not'' betray him. EVER.
* [[spoiler: DroppedABridgeOnHim: While far from anticlimactic, he got a significantly abrupt and shocking death in the Season 3 premiere.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's pretty deferential to his wife, as we see in "Resolution", and is shown to be very gentle with her.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's a ''kosher'' butcher... he won't kill an already-injured man in the same freezer as his meats. Injuring that man himself and then telling a non-believer to kill him is fair game, though.
** Also [[ShownTheirWork in line with Kashrut standards]], when he sees the Commodore's hunting trophies he shows immense disapproval of killing animals purely for sport/status.
* {{Expy}}: His gangster-butcher persona is reminiscent of Bill Cutting in ''GangsOfNewYork''.
* [[spoiler: FacialHorror: Courtesy of Richard Harrow and a load of buckshot. The resulting hole in his face is comparable to Richard's own.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil
* GreedyJew: Subverted: While he quite reasonably wants Jimmy to pay him what Jimmy owes him at first--and it is worth knowing that Jimmy has the money, [[ForTheEvulz he just doesn't want to pay him back]]--Jimmy's increasingly insulting and finally homicidal responses pushes Manny to the point where, as he tells Angela, it's beyond money.
* HolierThanThou: "What? We all have to live by (some) rules..."
* HotBlooded
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Subverted when, after an attempt on his life okayed by Jimmy, he shows up at Jimmy's house to murder him and instead finds Angela and her lesbian lover... and kills the both of them; the lover right after coming out of the bathroom - thinking it was Jimmy - and in Angela's case after she pleaded IHaveAFamily which places this firmly into KickTheDog territory.
* [[spoiler:MoeGreeneSpecial: Richard Harrow shoots him in the eye with a shotgun from close range.]]
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Played seriously. Jimmy tries to restrain him at one point, telling him that "You can't kill everyone."
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Possibly inspired by Max "Boo Hoo" Hoff, the "King of the Bootleggers" in Philadelphia during the early 20th century.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* PetTheDog: He has a genuinely sweet relationship with his wife. [[spoiler:And seconds after we see this, he's killed.]]
* TheRival: To Waxey Gordon.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: In an evil version of this, after an attempt is made on his life, he considers no amount of blood money sufficient to stop him from taking revenge.
* WeHaveWaysOfMakingYouTalk
* WouldHitAGirl: He murders Angela (and accidentally, her lover Louise), in cold blood. However, he seems somewhat shaken up about it afterwards.
* YiddishAsASecondLanguage: You better believe it, boychik.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: He is forced to leave Philadelphia at the end of the second season, since it has been swallowed hole by Gordon, and seek refuge to Nucky in Atlantic City. [[spoiler: It doesn't serve him much in the end.]]
* YouKillItYouBoughtIt: While he dislikes killing for sport he is even more offended when someone claims the kill of another man. He believes that the only way for Jimmy to really take over Atlantic City is for Jimmy to personally kill Nucky. He also seems impressed by the fact that Nucky personally killed Jimmy rather than having Owen or Eli do it.
** Ironically, [[spoiler: Mickey Doyle ends up trying to take the credit for Munya's death.]]

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's pretty deferential to his wife, as we see in "Resolution", and is shown to be very gentle with her.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's a ''kosher'' butcher... he won't kill an already-injured man in the same freezer as his meats. Injuring that man himself and then telling a non-believer to kill him is fair game, though.
** Also [[ShownTheirWork in line with Kashrut standards]], when he sees the Commodore's hunting trophies he shows immense disapproval of killing animals purely for sport/status.
* {{Expy}}: His gangster-butcher persona is reminiscent of Bill Cutting in ''GangsOfNewYork''.
* [[spoiler: FacialHorror: Courtesy of Richard Harrow and a load of buckshot. The resulting hole in his face is comparable to Richard's own.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil
* GreedyJew: Subverted: While he quite reasonably wants Jimmy to pay him what Jimmy owes him at first--and it is worth knowing that Jimmy has the money, [[ForTheEvulz he just
where she doesn't want to pay him back]]--Jimmy's increasingly insulting and finally homicidal responses pushes Manny to the point where, as he tells Angela, it's beyond money.
show something.
* HolierThanThou: "What? We all have to live by (some) rules..."
PrettyInMink: Has a giant fox-fur coat.
* HotBlooded
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Subverted when, after an attempt on his life okayed by Jimmy, he shows up at Jimmy's house to murder him and instead finds Angela and her lesbian lover... and kills the both of them; the lover right after coming out of the bathroom - thinking it was Jimmy - and in Angela's case after she pleaded IHaveAFamily which places this firmly into KickTheDog territory.
* [[spoiler:MoeGreeneSpecial: Richard Harrow shoots him in the eye with a shotgun from close range.]]
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Played seriously. Jimmy tries to restrain him at one point, telling him that "You can't kill everyone."
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Possibly inspired by Max "Boo Hoo" Hoff, the "King of the Bootleggers" in Philadelphia during the early 20th century.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* PetTheDog: He has a genuinely sweet relationship with his wife. [[spoiler:And seconds after we see this, he's killed.]]
* TheRival: To Waxey Gordon.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: In an evil version of this, after an attempt is made on his life, he considers no amount of blood money sufficient to stop him from taking revenge.
* WeHaveWaysOfMakingYouTalk
* WouldHitAGirl: He murders Angela (and accidentally, her lover Louise), in cold blood. However, he seems somewhat shaken up about it afterwards.
* YiddishAsASecondLanguage: You better believe it, boychik.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: He is forced to leave Philadelphia at the end of the second season, since it has been swallowed hole by Gordon, and seek refuge to Nucky in Atlantic City. [[spoiler: It doesn't serve him much in the end.]]
* YouKillItYouBoughtIt: While he dislikes killing for sport he is even more offended when someone claims the kill of another man. He believes that the only way for Jimmy to really take over
PutOnABus: She left Atlantic City permanently after giving birth to Van Alden's baby.
* ReallyGetsAround
* RichesToRags
* SingleMomStripper: Subverted. Lucy has her daughter only because she
is to be paid for Jimmy to personally kill Nucky. He also seems impressed it, and despite a brief maternal bonding after birth she has no problem abandoning her.
* TakeThatAudience: Lucy is often considered TheScrappy
by the fact fandom, who extend their revilement to the actress behind her. Thus, the scene where she rehearses a monologue from the play of the same name in "A Dangerous Maid" while staring at the camera (standing for a mirror) can only be taken as an open comment by Paz de la Huerta that Nucky personally killed Jimmy rather yes, she can act. To ice the cake, the character in the play is also a former showgirl, like Lucy, and the monologue in question is about how she knows that people talk bad about her behind her back and how she is better than having Owen or Eli do it.

* AxCrazy
* BadassInANiceSuit: Takes some time to groom his own suits. During Easter he's interrupted while doing it and he just wears a wifebeater in the dinner with the family, in which he's mocked for being a SharpDressedMan in love with his suits. [[spoiler: Meaningfully, he's in disarray and shown wearing an A-shirt when he dies]].
* BadBoss: He's at [[Literature/HarryPotter Voldemort]] and TheJoker levels of willingness to brutally murder subordinates at the slightest provocation.
* BattleTrophy: After he [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs assaults Nucky's HQ at the Ritz]], he plunders and keeps Thompson's desk as a war trophy.
* BerserkButton: While any number of things could set him off, he especially hates condescension.
* BigBad: Of Season 3, and way [[BlackAndGrayMorality more clear-cut]] than any of Nucky's previous nemesis. Joe Masseria is the BiggerBad.
* BlatantLies: Why, he's old D. L. Collinsworth and this is his gas station. They are out of gas. Seriously. That stuff pouring out of the gas pump? Nothing of importance.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: In "A Man, A Plan..." he feels the need to tell the world that he is the proud son of a brick-layer and that he has contempt for fishermen. He is [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} that]] [[AxCrazy kind]] [[{{Jerkass}} of guy]].
* [[spoiler:BodyguardBetrayal]]: In "Margate Sands", [[spoiler:he is stabbed to death by his second, Tonino, while his other two remaining men watch without interferring.]]
* BondageIsBad: He enjoys [[spoiler: erotic asphyxiation.]]
* [[spoiler: BookEnds: He's contemplating the Atlantic Ocean in his first and last appearances.]]
* BulletproofHumanShield: [[spoiler: He uses the poor waitress he was having sex with as cover in "You'd Be Surprised".]]
* BullyingADragon: His ReasonYouSuckSpeech to the assorted gangsters is already bad, but directing a large and offensive portion of it to [[MagnificentBastard Arnold]] [[FauxAffablyEvil Rothstein]] does not seem particularly germane to Gyp's continued existence. A.R. downplays it when Gyp half-apologizes much later, but in any case, Rothstein puts a hit on him just after said apology.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Gyp is a shrewd tactician... and a violent, unstable psychopath. His superior, Joe Masseria, puts up with Gyp's "quirks" because of his loyalty and skill, but it doesn't take long before he threatens Gyp with a [[YouHaveFailedMe permanent form of retirement]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He has a tendency to show up in public settings with an off-putting accessory (dog, colonial general's hat, etc.)
* ComplimentBackfire: Nucky wishes him "good luck" in Italian, in deference towards Rosetti and his mother tongue. Gyp takes the note as a poorly written and condescending gesture and goes ballistic over it.
* CruelMercy[=/=]BaitTheDog: In "A Man, A Plan...". During one of his {{Disproportionate Retribution}}s, Gyp buries alive Franco, the cousin of his second Tonino, in the beach leaving only his head out so he'll have a long, painful agony before dying of exposure or drowning with the tide. Tonino begs Gyp for mercy, leading Gyp to [[HopeSpot pick back the shovel]]... and crush Franco's skull until well after he dies. Gyp then tells Tonino that ''he owes him'' for sparing Franco ''the wait''. [[spoiler: Eventually, [[TheDogBitesBack Tonino gets even]] in the season finale]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Has his moments.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Hoo boy. Some guy implies offhandedly that you're ignorant of car terminology? Better bash his head in with a tire iron. Another guy wishes you good luck when you're feeling pissy? Better light him on fire. A priest tells you to quiet down in a church? Better beat up and rob that church. A local gangster is causing trouble for your booze trade? Blow up the restaurant he likes to eat at. Someone happens to know a little more about waves? Better bury him neck deep in the sand to drown and then bash his head in with a shovel.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Rosetti answers to Joe Masseria, but is largely autonomous. His operation in New Jersey is entirely his idea - and he [[YouHaveFailedMe gets nearly killed by his own boss]] for it.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In the first scene of season three, he beats a Good Samaritan to death for an offhand comment he takes as an insult.

"Spaghetti and Coffee" shows that he is smarter than he first appeared, and that he actually likes to test people by feigning ignorance rather than truly being uneducated.

* MadBomber: He blows up a restaurant full of people in an attempt to kill Nucky and Rothstein.
* ManipulativeBastard: Throughout his appearances in the series, Gyp has proven himself startlingly adept at exploiting other characters' ego as well as their [[ObfuscatingStupidity unflattering presumptions regarding his intelligence]] to his advantage. When faced with the prospect of being whacked by Joe Masseria's men due to his past failures, Gyp makes a succcessful appeal to Masseria's vanity which not only earns him an extended lease on life but the Manhattan kingpin's full backing in an all-out war against Nucky Thompson. Similarly, he deceives Gillian Darmody, a woman who is [[ManipulativeBastard no slouch at manipulating others herself]], into believing that she can rely on him as a puppet in order to pump her for information that can be used in his conquest of Atlantic City.
* NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters: Gyp, of all people, buys off Tabor Heights at 200$ per citizen instead of merely relying on intimidation (although [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse the implication]] is also there). He even enjoys himself with a friendly NewEraSpeech about ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSPPxhYxF8k the importance of reading!]]''. And then he cancels Bible Camp...

[[caption-width-right:249:"I want to give you a son, Nelson."]]
Agent Van Alden's very proper, very Christian wife. She wants to be a good woman
and demand pretty things.
[[LawOfInverseFertility desires a child more than anything in the world]]. She also worships the ground her husband walks on, at least until she finds out he cheated on her with Lucy and fathered a child he intended to force her to adopt. She divorces him at the end of season two. Played by Enid Graham.

!!Tropes:
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl
AllWomenArePrudes: She dresses conservatively and only has sex with the lights off.
* JumpingOutOfACake: In "Anastasia", for Nucky's birthday.TheDogBitesBack: Rose is ''not'' okay with Nelson getting Lucy pregnant and intending to keep her baby and pass it off as theirs, no matter how desperately she wants a child. She slaps and bites him in a confrontation after Abigail's birth, and two episodes later, serves Nelson with divorce papers.

* TheMissusAndTheEx: Her relation with Margaret is full of contempt and [[WomanScorned scorn]].
* TheMistress: Technically, to ''Van Alden''.
* MsFanservice: By far the most frequent source of nudity in the series. It's harder to find an episode where she doesn't show something.
* PrettyInMink: Has a giant fox-fur coat.
* PutOnABus: She left Atlantic City permanently after giving birth to Van Alden's baby.
* ReallyGetsAround
* RichesToRags
* SingleMomStripper: Subverted. Lucy has her daughter only because she is to be paid for it, and despite a brief maternal bonding after birth she has no problem abandoning her.
* TakeThatAudience: Lucy is often considered TheScrappy by the fandom, who extend their revilement to the actress behind her. Thus, the scene where she rehearses a monologue from the play of the same name in "A Dangerous Maid" while staring at the camera (standing for a mirror) can only be taken as an open comment by Paz de la Huerta that yes, she can act. To ice the cake, the character in the play is also a former showgirl, like Lucy, and the monologue in question is about how she knows that people talk bad about her behind her back and how she is better than other people think.
* [[BettyAndVeronica Veronica]]: To Margaret's Betty.
* WomanScorned: To Margaret, but not Nucky.

the common sense to put her beliefs aside when the situation requires. She considers surgery in order to cure her sterility and she takes care of Lucy is often considered TheScrappy by the fandom, who extend their revilement to the actress behind her. Thus, the scene where right after she rehearses a monologue from the play gives birth instead of the same name in "A Dangerous Maid" while staring at the camera (standing trying to blame her for a mirror) can only be taken as an open comment by Paz de la Huerta that yes, she can act. To ice the cake, the character in the play is her husband's infidelity. She also a former showgirl, like Lucy, has an easier time displaying her emotions and the monologue in question is about how she knows that people talk bad about showing preoccupation for her behind husband's well being, in contrast to her back and how she is better than other people think.

[[spoiler: YoungerThanTheyLook]]: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagged]]. [[spoiler: He initially comes as an OlderThanTheyLook 15-year old, but is actually a YoungerThanTheyLook 19-year old. The actor was 17 when he shot his episode.]]

!!Tropes
* EuropeansAreKinky: [[spoiler: She's a 180º compared to Rose.]]
* FakeNationality: Seidel is German-Danish.
* FanNickname: Bork.
* FieryRedhead
* [[spoiler: HotMom]]
* [[spoiler: LadyMacbeth]] To Van Alden.
* MagicalNanny
* ManicPixieDreamGirl

* MysteriousPast
** MysteriousStranger
** MysteriousWoman
* OutlawCouple: With Van Alden, although their relationship is professional. [[spoiler: At first.]]
* [[spoiler: ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: In "You'd Be Surprised" she attacks a federal agent that she thinks has come to arrest Van Alden with a meat mallet. Poor guy only wanted to complain about an iron that Van Alden had sold him. Oops.]]

[[caption-width-right:200:"I'm much too tough, sweetie"]]

Hostess and manager of the Atlantic City restaurant Babette's Supper Club. Played by Tracy Lynn Middendorf.

!!Tropes

* TheBartender
* BodyHorror: She says nonchalantly that she uses tapeworms to keep her figure. Given the [[ThatOldTimePrescription time]] [[ScienceMarchesOn period]] and her [[OutOfFocus testimonial presence]] it's unclear if it was a joke.
* IronLady: Commands respect; friendly but firm, she shoots down Gyp's advances joking that she is too tough for him.
* LifeOfTheParty: The "it comes with the job description" hostess variety.
* MysteriousWoman
* NiceHat: You'll be hard-pressed to find a scene where she does not wear it.
* OneOfTheBoys: She always dresses in male clothing, even when not working.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* OutOfFocus: She seems to be aware of Nucky's organization if not an outright ally of him. And that's all we can say about her.
* SelfMadeWoman: Manager of her own club, which is not a LegitimateBusinessmensSocialClub despite being a usual hangout.
* UncertainDoom: It's unknown if [[spoiler:she's killed when Rosetti blows up her club.]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Her fans]] are [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse understandably worried.]]

!'''Isabelle Jeunet'''

[[quoteright:208:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/isabelle-jeunet_small_502.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:208:"Do you bathe?"]]
The French owner of the haute couture dress shop ''La Belle Femme'', set next to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Nucky forces her to fire her long time assistant and give the job to Margaret in order to help her, and she doesn't take it well at all (nor makes any attempt to hide it). Played by Anna Katarina.

* BadBoss: To Margaret, and after she leaves, to her replacement.
* FakeNationality: Played by a swiss actress.
* FrenchJerk
* GrandeDame
* GratuitousFrench
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: She asks Margaret to use her influence on Nucky to get a lower rent for the shop, but then has to give her one of her most expensive dresses for free as a payment.
* LastNameBasis: She makes Margaret call her ''Madame'' Jeunet. Nucky is amused when he founds out because to him she is just "Isabelle".
* OldMaid: She is "a woman alone".
* [[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign This Is Your Name On Foreign]]: She addresses Margaret as "Marguerite".

!'''Rose Van Alden'''

[[caption-width-right:249:"I want to give you a son, Nelson."]]
Agent Van Alden's very proper, very Christian wife. She wants to be a good woman and [[LawOfInverseFertility desires a child more than anything in the world]]. She also worships the ground her husband walks on, at least until she finds out he cheated on her with Lucy and fathered a child he intended to force her to adopt. She divorces him at the end of season two. Played by Enid Graham.

!!Tropes:
* AllWomenArePrudes: She dresses conservatively and only has sex with the lights off.
* TheDogBitesBack: Rose is ''not'' okay with Nelson getting Lucy pregnant and intending to keep her baby and pass it off as theirs, no matter how desperately she wants a child. She slaps and bites him in a confrontation after Abigail's birth, and two episodes later, serves Nelson with divorce papers.
* ExtremeDoormat
* TheFundamentalist
* LawOfInverseFertility
* WomenAreWiser: Though a conservative Christian, she has the common sense to put her beliefs aside when the situation requires. She considers surgery in order to cure her sterility and she takes care of Lucy right after she gives birth instead of trying to blame her for her husband's infidelity. She also has an easier time displaying her emotions and showing preoccupation for her husband's well being, in contrast to her spouse's icy demeanor.

!'''Pearl'''

[[quoteright:276:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pearl-boardwalkempire_3008.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:276:"Who is going to love me now?"]]

[[caption-width-right:235:"You're talkin' funny."]]
An innocent Jimmy lookalike who gets caught up in Gillian's web of lies halfway through Season 3. Played by Billy Magnussen.

!!Tropes:
* AudienceSurrogate: Alternately turned on and weirded out by Gillian. This should sound familiar to most of the male audience members.

* [[spoiler: DeathBySex]]
* [[spoiler: DeadlyBath]]

* ReplacementGoldfish: Of Jimmy, for Gillian. [[ExaggeratedTrope Taken to the extreme]] when she [[spoiler: kills him and uses his corpse to stage Jimmy's death.]]
* [[spoiler: WeHardlyKnewYe]]

[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/be-mrs-mcgarry_7053.png]]

* CoolOldLady
* DeterminedWidow: She finances her political activities with the money left to her by her late husband, an oil tycoon.
* GrandeDame
* LastNameBasis
* TheMentor: To Margaret.
* [[MoralGuardians Moral Guardian]]: Subverted. She is one when it comes to alcohol, but can be considered a proto-feminist.
* PrettyInMink
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Margaret confesses to her that a "powerful" man has made her a proposition, but that he won't marry her. Instead of riding a high horse, [=McGarry=] tells Margaret that she is free to do what she wants, but advices her about birth control so she does not find herself with a third child and abandoned.

!'''Father Ed Brennan'''

[[quoteright:258:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/father-brennan_3768.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:258:"Make sure he's prepared to list his sins honestly and thoroughly tomorrow. You also. For your own confession."]]
A Catholic Irish priest, head of Saint Finbar's Church in Atlantic City. Played by Michael Cumpsty.

!!Tropes:

* AnalogyBackfire: His allegory of Hell and Heaven both as people sat next to a large table, with the food too far to take it and only very long spoons to help themselves is bought by Margaret, but goes straight over Nucky's head.[[note]]In Hell they starve because the content falls off the spoons before they can eat it; in Heaven they use the spoons to feed each other.[[/note]]
-->''Couldn't they bend their arms?''
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Compares Teddy to "the cruel Jews [...] who taunted Jesus when he was on the cross".
* DemotedToExtra: In Season 3.
* HidingBehindReligion: All he does can be summed on him shaking Margaret for money.

[[caption-width-right:219:"Mr. Thompson, you have to admit I'm pretty good at this."]]
A teenage wheelman from rural Pennsylvania that steals liquor from other bootleggers to sell it for a profit. Played by Nick Robinson.

!!Tropes:

* BaitAndSwitch: Nucky and co. first take him as an adult and resolve to kill him to make an example. They find that he is a scared 15-year old who ignores what they did to his partner, Nate. [[spoiler: Then they find that he is actually an adult (and a liar) and Nucky kills him. Up to that point, the episode looked like a tailor-made introduction for Rowland as a new recurring character.]]
* [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot]]: [[spoiler: Shot in the back of the head by Nucky to remind Owen of who is in charge.]]
* [[spoiler: ConMan]]: [[spoiler: When he thinks that he has Nucky already in the pocket he reveals that he is actually 19 years-old and a smoker. Nucky then kills him.]]
