Not exactly a gang per se, the First Sons are actually a secret society of Conduits with a private army that's taken over Empire City's Historic District. With a history that can be traced all the way back to [[TheColonialPeriod colonial]] [[BurnTheWitch Salem]], branches all over America, and a heavy emphasis on the propagation and mastery of Conduit powers, they are also under Kessler's control, and directly responsible for the Blast.

* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: Of previous BigBad Kessler, as far as motivations and intentions go. Bertrand joined the First Sons for no other reason than to benefit himself, while Kessler's purpose was SavingTheWorld from the Beast. He tries to make Cole a hated villain of New Marais so he could fit the role of a hero while Kessler purposely filled the role of a villain to mold Cole into a hero. Lastly, he wants to eradicate all conduits while Kessler is responsible for making most of the conduits in the series.

* FreudianExcuse: She's had a ''really'' crappy life. [[spoiler:Her family was among those killed when Bertrand activated a Ray Sphere, and saw them get vaporized right in front of her.]] It didn't get any better after that.

* AntiVillain: He's a WellIntentionedExtremist. Yes, he needs to be stopped, but he doesn't even know want to do what he's doing. He just feels [[DirtyBusiness he has to]].

* GreaterScopeVillain: Most Everything Kessler does in the first game all links back to him. And most of ''inFAMOUS 2'' is spent fighting Bertrand and his various creations, even though your main goal is to stop the Beast.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: Just knowing about him is a major spoiler for the first game, since his very existence is only revealed at the end. And his identity and motivation in the sequel is such a huge game-changer that he qualifies for that as well.

Established and organised by Joseph Bertrand, the Militia has been in control of New Marais ever since the Corrupted began attacking the city. Ostensibly in place to restore and preserve order until government assistance can arrive, the Militia are extremely repressive towards the citizens -- especially Conduits, who Bertrand has declared war on.
