    The Chicago Mob 

Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis)
  • Affably Evil: Extremely polite to everyone, loves his family and friends, orders the car bombing of a snitch...
  • Bald of Evil
  • Benevolent Boss: Is friends with most of his men and gives advice to his casino employees on how to get better tips. He even allows some employees who were stealing money from the casino to leave without incident. However...
    • Bad Boss: ...if a mobster or employee does something he really doesn't like (such as beat up an employee for information without orders to do so) and he may beat the crap out of them. And if they get arrested for murder and stealing money from his casino and threaten to turn information over to the DA? Then they are screwed.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He cares a lot about his wife and daughters and gets very upset when Borelli is killed by a Milwaukee mob hitman.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He dislikes it when civilians get caught in the crossfire during mob confrontations, does not tolerate narcotic use in his operation, goes out of his way to get an innocent employee away from Rizzo's wrath, and "teaches some manners" to a group of young motorcycle punks that threaten a family who gave Vincent and his "associates" a ride when the trio was stranded.
  • Nice to the Waiter: Very much so. He gives his workers pointers on how to get better tips and saves one poor waiter from a fellow mobster with a Hair-Trigger Temper. Vincent also went off his way to give to beatdown to Beansy after he witnesses him attacking a casino dealer after informing Vincent in locating the corrupt Clark County Sheriff since he didn't give the order to beat the dealer.
  • Sympathetic P.O.V.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: With Laura.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Red, Mia, and Borelli. Not so much Beansy because he is a moron.
  • Villain Protagonist
  • Visionary Villain: He sees Las Vegas as the next big thing for the mob and is pushing his bosses hard for expansion of operations in the city.

Anthony "Red" Cervelli (James Russo)

Mia Rizzo (Sarah Jones)

Nick "Beansy" Cota (Sonny Marinelli)

Vic Borelli (Joe Sabatino)
  • Affably Evil: In "The Real Thing", he was polite enough to give a truck driver some money and tell him that he won't be killed to make sure he gets home to his family after hijacking his cargo truck.
  • The Brute
  • Killed Off for Real: By Jones in "Bad Seeds".

Laura Savino (Vinessa Shaw)
  • Dark Mistress
  • Exact Words: She tells ADA Katherine O'Connell that she will never tell Katherine anything that might incriminate her husband and his associates. The next time she talks to Katherine, she repeats this statement but omits the part about "his associates". Katherine quickly picks up on this omission and the two women reach an unspoken understanding.
  • Hidden Depths: She's incredibly savvy when it comes to politics and has even worked for Kennedy's campaign. She puts these skills to use by helping turn Grady's campaign around in "The Real Thing" and "Bad Seeds".
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: With Vincent.

Angelo LaFratta (Jonathan Banks)

Johnny Rizzo (Michael Wiseman)
