    Stanton Dahl 
The head of the Dahl weapons company, Stanton is the first ally of the Crimson Raiders (besides Torgue of course). He helps them gain more allies in the form of Jakobs and Vladof, but many do not trust him due to his Smug Snake attitude to everyone. Later, it's revealed Mockingbird killed and replaced him, their alliance being part of his personal amusement. Despite this revelation being brought to the public, the Dahl corporation is still allied to the Crimson Raiders, with his son (who has the same name conveniently) being their new leader.
  • Dead All Along: Was killed by Mockingbird even before the alliance was formed, though it was very well hidden by Mockingbird's Shapeshifter powers.
  • Enemy Mine: He uses this to argue why the Crimson Raiders need an alliance with other corporations. He encourages this further when Bellum gets on the scene, as Bellum is not exactly a peaceful or even sane organization.
  • Smug Snake: His main personality trait. He talks calmly and politely, but it's fairly obvious he doesn't mean well. Makes sense, considering how he is Mockingbird after all...

    Montgomery Jakobs 
The head of the Jakobs organization, Montgomery is brought into the Raider Alliance by Stanton Dahl. A Good Ol' Boy from the Deep South of who-knows-where, Montgomery is the newest head of the Family Business. He may seem like a stereotype, but he tries his hardest to be polite around Lilith (which is very hard for him). His main business rival is Nicholas Vladof, as both of them cannot stand the other.
  • Family Business: The Jakobs corporation is hinted to be like this. Helped by the fact that he shares his last name with the business name.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Smokes cigarettes, though not to the same extent as Nicholas and his hookah.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Does this a lot, though tries to dull it down in the presence of a woman. It's pretty noticeable, alongside Deadpan Snarker Stanton Dahl or The Stoic Nicholas Vladof in comparison.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: While he may seem unintelligent, he is the head of a huge weapons corporation for a reason. He's also smart enough to know that allying with Vladof would be a huge boon for the alliance, despite his animosity towards them in general.

    Nicholas Vladof 
The head of the Vladof corporation, Nicholas is only convinced into the Alliance after seeing Krieg in action, intrigued to see more similar carnage later on. Despite the revolutionary-like radio messages, Nicholas has a very Stoic Blood Knight attitude, using his revolutions to bring in more commerce. However, he is perfectly willing to back certain revolutions on his own accord, as he does not tolerate oppressive governments.
  • Blood Knight: The most blatant CEO who displays this (besides Josef Muller). He only joins after seeing Krieg fight and slaughter a group of Bellum troops, which catches his attention fairly well. Unlike most, he is extremely calm and quiet, only speaking when his input is necessary.
  • Combat Pragmatist: War is meant to be won, with the reasons and ways you do it irrelevant. He has no concept of honor or mercy, though he is very familiar with sadism and rage.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Smokes a hookah, which he has an assistant constantly carrying around for him to use.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His other name is "Nick The Decapitator". He's called that because he likes decapitating people.
  • Off with His Head!: His favorite form of killing people. He's even named after The Decapitator because of this.
  • The Stoic: The only CEO who acts like this. He rarely displays emotion at all during the meetings, and remains composed, even as he described how he built an entire courtyard out of the bodies of Bellum troops or sliced off the heads of the battalion that came to rescue them.

    Jacqueline Maliwan 
The head of the Maliwan corporation, Jacqueline is allied with Bellum for as-of-yet unknown reasons. She is an Alpha Bitch, and...that's all we really know about her.
  • Alpha Bitch: Is very snooty and prideful, though Nicholas and Stanton both were easily able to destroy her attitude.
  • Combat Stilettos: Her stilettos have knives as the spikes, making them legitimate weapons.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Does not tolerate her allies doing things behind her back. She nearly killed Josef because he invaded her territory without warning, though she relented when she figured out exactly what he wanted.

    Maxwell Tediore 
The head of the Tediore corporation, Maxwell is allied with Bellum for monetary gains through the wars they bring. He is The Stoic of the group, being very polite and addressing the others as Mister or Miss.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Greed is his blood, and he is completely honest about it. Money does make the world go round after all.
  • The Stoic: Even more so than Nicholas, believe it or not. Never gets upset, or overreacts in any way, putting him in contrast to the other two CEO's in the Bellum Alliance.
  • Villains Never Lie: Does not mince words about his Greed or alliance with Bellum. Odds are his public relations are not that great.
