to:

* AFatherToHisMen: Takes good care of his workers and all of his schemes are for their benefit. Turns into a deconstruction, as it turns out he was so busy being a father to the union guys that he was never properly a dad to his own son. It also turns out that the union guys are willing to make a doomed moral gesture after his death and declare their loyalty to him despite the government warning that the union would be closed down unless they selected new leadership. The government follows through on the threat and shuts down the union.

* AFatherToHisMen: Deconstructed. He will do anything for his fellow dock workers. Turned out his own son was jealous off the attention he gave them. Frank left such an impression that the workers took the HonorBeforeReason path and refused to elect new officials even though they found out Frank is dirty and thus costs all of them their livelihood.

!Donut

A sixth grade student who occasionally hangs out with the group of Namond, Michael, Randy and Dukie. He's both very talented at and obsessed with stealing cars, despite the fact that he doesn't try to make any profit off it and never seems to drive them far before crashing them. This has gotten him into some trouble, most notably when the corrupt Officer Walker broke several of his fingers after crashing into multiple cars during a joyride.

Not "[[GangBangers hang on the corner, don't give a fuck]]" white, but [[WorkingClassHero Locust Point, IBS Local 47]] white. I don't work without no fucking contract, and I don't stand around listening to horseshit excuses, unlike my cousin Ziggy, who, by the way, is still owed money by you and your street wise whiggers.''
