** Winfred "Winnie" Haverford, a pedophile and murderer. He kills a 10 year old girl in the pilot and rapes her corpse, an act that is seen to disgust even the hardened AntiHero Kevin Corcoran. Winnie tries to track down the girl's sister, the witness to his crime, with intent of raping and murdering her to. He also visits a brothel to indulge his tastes in little girls. When his own wife discovers what he's done, she happily sells him out to Corcoran.
** The FauxAffablyEvil counterfeiter Philomen Keating. A ruthless gangster who despises centralized government, Keating takes over a crowded police station full of cops and civilians. He proceeds to torture them physically and psychologically while having fun the entire while. Keating enjoys stripping them of humanity by injuring the police captain and saying anyone can save him, but they'll be injured in turn. When nobody steps up, he cheerfully mocks them on what they ''really'' are. He kills more innocent people, and at one point has a captive tenor sing a funeral dirge before slitting his throat in the middle of it just to see what it sounds like. When cornered by the police, Keating takes a little girl hostage with clear intent to kill her whether or not he's granted safe passage out.
** CorruptPolitician and CorruptCorporateExecutive all in one, Brendan Donovan is the Tammany Hall Ward Boss for the Five Points who plans to create an aqueduct in New York. [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Cultivating a veneer of respectability]], Donovan uses extortion and bribery to steal the lands of others, resorting to outright torture and murder if they refuse. We discover a variety of nasty and brutal beatings, tortures and murders Donovan is responsible for before we learn his plan: to level the Five Points heedless of the fate of its inhabitants, solely so he can profit from his new aqueduct.
