* VillainousFriendship: Lono had one with Milo Garrett (Milo however didn't seem to have liked him much), liked Curtis enough to call him spare Loop on their first encounter and at least respected Shepherd enough to want to [[spoiler: avenge his death]].

** Chucky Spinks, the dice-throwing con man introduced in the third story arc, wants revenge on his childhood friend Pony (now a big-time bookie) for getting him sent to prison for seven years. But his revenge fixation ''really'' takes off when he also tries to blame Pony for stealing his girlfriend and getting him barred from craps games by spreading word that he's a hustler. The truth is that Chucky's girlfriend left him of her own accord because he's a terrible boyfriend, and that Chucky's too cocky to realize how obvious his scam is.

Soon enough, the focus of ''100 Bullets'' expands to include Agent Graves himself, as it is revealed that he does benefit from these acts of revenge. Sometimes it's because he wants a particular person killed for his own ends, and sometimes he just wants to see his unique brand of justice carried out. It just so happens that Graves is the leader of an elite group of badasses known as The Minutemen, who acted as the police force for The Trust, [[ConspiracyTheory a group of thirteen powerful families that control the United States]]. Graves and The Minutemen left The Trust after being told that [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness they are no longer necessary]] by order of The Trust's leader, Augustus Medici. The Trust plotted to kill them all, but thanks to Graves' inside man Mr. Shepherd, The Minutemen were spared and given new lives - along with a healthy dose of FakeMemories and LaserGuidedAmnesia.
