The Gandor Family and associates
One of the assassins hired by Gustavo Baggetta in 1932 to destroy the Daily Days, Maria is a battle-loving Blood Knight. After losing to Claire, she somehow ends up joining the Gandor Family as one of their bodyguards. Along with Tick, she is one of the major players of the 1933 arc.
A speakeasy waitresses for a bar owned by the Gandors, Edith is the only woman among four siblings enamored with the newspaper industry. Edith went through a lot for being Roy's girlfriend and ensuring he doesn't waste his life by being a drug addict; from trying to talk the Runoratas out of pressing Roy with their drug trafficking operations, to insubordinating the Gandors by taking responsability for all of the problems Roy brought with him.
The Russo Family and associates
Ricardo Russo (Lydia Russo)
Placido Russo's only grandchild and heir to the Russo Family. Ricardo is a calm boy who has no interest in being a mafioso, especially since his parents were killed by a car bomb just for their Russo connection. Ricardo is actually a girl who was raised as a boy so that she could one day take over the Russo Family. Huey tried to use Sham to control Ricardo, but this failed because he did not realize her true gender, and Sham refused to take control of a girl. Ricardo and Sham now share their consciousness.
The Beriam family and associates
Former Felix WalkenAn assassin whose abilities, infamy and success account are comparable to that of Vino himself. In 1932, he is hired to finally put an end Vino's legacy and leave him as the only most efficient assassin in the United States. It turns out that the legend is quite old and not in the prime of his abilities anymore. He sold his name to three of Sham's vessels, and is currently living as a bodyguard for the Beriam family.Not to be confused with the Felix Walken that Claire bought his name from—that one is a woman in her thirties whom Claire considers to be a Worthy Opponent. She retired after giving birth to a daughter.
Lamia and Larva
A member of Lamia. Adele is an apprehensive woman of few words who has trouble maintaining eye contact with strangers. Despite appearances, however, she is a formidable fighter with unquenchable bloodlust.
The leader of Larva, and the only human within the group full of homunculi. Something of a genius, Tim was taken in by Huey while he was still in his teens. He is dedicated to his missions and following Huey's orders.
A member of Lamia, a group within Larva. Christopher likes to follow his own agenda and often plays Rules Lawyer with Tim's orders, doing as he pleases. Chris has constant blood-shot eyes and razor-sharp teeth. After his debut arc he joins the Russo family as Ricardo's bodyguard.
Hong Chimei "Chi"
The oldest homunculus within Lamia. He may not be the strongest, but is the most rational and most experienced. Hong is a close range fighter, and easily the fastest whithin Lamia. He's part of the team that comes to New York in 1933 to back up Tim, and shows up again in 1934 as part of Huey's experiment in Chicago.
A member of Lamia created less than 15 years ago. Rail is an explosives specialist with an outspoken hatred of his master and creator Huey. He hero-worships Christopher, who befriended him after a particularly traumatizing experiment. Later in 1934, Rail leaves Huey's side after befriending Nice and joining Jacuzzi's gang. He is also revealed to be female.
A member of Lamia whose body is proportioned like a child, but is over 7 feet tall. Frank is one of Rail's closest friends. He is kidnapped by Renée's team of scientists during the raid on Russo Manor, but is recovered by Huey at the end of 1934.
One of the last members of Lamia to be introduced along with Rail, Frank and “The Poet” after The Slash arc. Sickle is a fighter well-versed in kick-based attacks with her main style being (admittedly) not-quite-Capoeira; her mission is to intervene with the Russos' sudden meddling with Lamia affairs.
“The Poet” is Lamia's resident wannabe gentleman. As his name suggests he is very fond of poetry and likes to recite them at any time given, and much to everyone's dismay, he happens to recite them or make his conversation into a rhythmic banter pretty much any time he opens his mouth. Graham seems to be the only one who appreciates his poetry.
Leeza Laforet (Hilton)
Huey's younger daughter and Chane's sister. She is a little girl who is viciously loyal to her father and practically worships him. In 1933 and 1934, Leeza is with Huey in his cell in Alcatraz, but is somehow able to know of things that are going on outside the prison. When not in Alcatraz, Leeza appears as a disembodied voice. Leeza is actually Hilton's first vessel. Huey had the infant Leeza drink the water that contained the consciousness of Hilton, which overrode Leeza. Didn't make much of a difference as far as personality and intellect goes, as Hilton was also newly-made at the time.
"The Twins" Sham and HiltonA pair of twins who, within Lamia, are in charge of information and communication. They are seemingly omnipresent, appearing in multiple places at the same time. They are the consciousnesses contained within a "water"—whoever drinks it either consumes or is consumed by the consciousness. Sham only consumes males, while Hilton is in charge of females. Together, they are in control of hundreds of people across the country.

Cold and vindictive, Melvi bears a strong grudge against Firo for stealing what he sees as rightfully his - Szilard's memories - and is more than happy to make him suffer for it.
Renée Palamades Brinvillier
A scientist working at Nebula. Renée is a clumsy and forgetful woman who is nevertheless devoted to science, to a frightening degree. Her attractive figure is the subject of much attention from her fellow researchers, but Renée doesn't seem to care about anything not related to her experiments. She was also Huey, Elmer, and Monica's alchemy teacher in the early 1700s. Renée is from a generation of immortals even earlier than the 1711 group, though details on that are still sparse.

At the end of the 1705 story, despite Esperança's offer to house her, she leaves Lotto Valentino.
