"You remember that one guy, what was his name....?" - all of us, at various points

This page exists as a memory aid for those trying to keep track of the various minor NPCs hanging around the Revolution. Some of them seem to be completely inconsequential, but I've learned that you never know, so I've put them all in. Major characters such as the Veterans Club have detailed information available as part of the Background section.

Agglomerated MegaCorp Company responsible for the popular sugary treat Starr Krunchies and its spin-off cereal. Subsidiaries Agglomerated MegaPublishing (print) and Agglomerated MegaTelevision (film) are developing a number of Revolution-related properties they've licensed rights to from the state, including a comic book, an animated series, feature film, and appearances on the soap opera Boston Common. Employers of Candi Rich and Tao. Phoenix Talon is under contract as a stunt coordinator.
Melissa Albright University of Connecticut student killed by Sabertooth (Catfights & Cockfights), whose father had been sacrified by the Coven during the '84 daemon incursion.
John Alexander New Horizons employee who delivered the hoverbikes and worked on the Revolution base computer system.
Don Aliese (missing, presumed dead) One of two local Mafia heads, presumed killed by a car bomb (Furies).
Alley Cats New gang in town since the Blood Board decline, led by the brutal Tybalt (Prince of Cats). Their members are known by numbers.
Dr. Liam Armani Boston coroner who usually gets assigned to Revolution cases involving unnatural corpses.
The Babe Disgruntled inventor who wanted to revolutionize the sport of baseball but was flouted by its inherent conservatism. He now wears a Yankees costume and carries a number of baseballs with microgravity generators, as well as a more sophisticated device he calls Homer. He started his career by robbing Boston's Fenway Stadium. Smarter than the usual run of 1-800-HENCHMEN sorts, he has a team of followers.
Susan Bates (deceased) Another clone, killed by Traveller, who thought she was Needle (Hunting the Eye of the Storm). Powers centered on biological emotional manipulation.
Mr. Beerbaum Owner of a Cambridge antiques store robbed by Toy Man and Lepidopterist (Iron Butterflies).

Blaise Gretchen St. John's number-one henchmen, a highly-skilled martial artist and mystical mind-controller.
Sarah Blake Another clone, worked with Travis Leone to record memory sequences at SysGen.
Blood Boards When they first appeared, they were a local gang with delusions of grandeur who had apparently been hired to kill Needle (Bloodlines). Later, many signed on with 1-800-HENCHMEN. Phoenix Talon eventually got tired of beating them senseless and decided to recruit them (Norse Sense). Named members: Rick, Stu, Stan, Kibo, Billy, Johnny, Gonzo, Rico, Toby. Rico and Toby were killed by the Alley Cats; Stu and Stan were also killed but brought back to life and given superpowers by Dawn (Prince of Cats).
Oscar Roberto Bouros Architect said to be responsible for the Fairlawn Construction Group's subdevelopment of the Resurrectionist's property, and also the Black Whip's mansion. Confused paper trail suggests that he either doesn't exist, or someone wants it to be thought that he doesn't.
Buddy Phoenix Talon's college friend, creator of his specialized weaponry. Aerospace engineer with variant intelligence.
Shannon Burkowski (deceased) CIA agent who was the base for Tempest and the SB clone series.
Caduceus Project A biotech company starting up in Boston using technology they acquired from a government auction of World Crime League equipment. Their building is built on the site where Fimbulwinter's front company Yesterday's Tomorrow's used to be, and has been destroyed three times already.

Count Bastard and the Jazz Trio The first symptom of 1-800-HENCHMEN's new presence in Boston (Fireworks & Frenzy), a music-themed villain. His "trio" had only two members at their first appearance, Liquorice Stick and Double Bass, and later acquired more, Skins, Ivory, and Ax.
Dawn The result of a ritual performed by Yasmina (Night of the Weird Shit), she is linked to Phoenix Talon. Her powers of creating objects from nothing are considerable, but her nature remains a mystery. She is currently dating Rick of the Blood Boards.
Dr. Drescher Head of the Caduceus Project.

Flicker One of Gretchen St. John's henchmen, a teleporter.

Randolph Gold Unofficial leader of a community of Daemonwar survivors in Worcester, MA.

Patricia Hoagland AKA the Storm Crow.

Senator Jacobs (deceased) Part of the committee investigating the embezzlement of Revolution and other law enforcement funds, secretly working for the League of Nations and eventually assassinated by Rue Morgue (Seeing the Light).
Felix Javelin Sociopathic former employee of the World Crime League front company SysGen, one of the primary architects of the artificial memory drugs. He himself holds the memories of seven different people, including the Navy SEAL whose abilities became part of Spyder (see the Host campaign). Using his drugs, he can make other people into short-term copies of himself to carry out his wishes while he remains at a distance.
Wendell Jenkins A senior properties developer at Agglomerated MegaPublishing, one of those repsonsible for the Revolution account and, like Peter Paulson, one of their most enthusiastic fans. Of course, in his case he's a devoted fan because the Toy Man threatened him with dire consequences if he wasn't.

James William Kenny, Jr. WCL scientist working at the Poughkeepsie facility, in charge of brainwashing Needle.

Brandeis McCaully Member of the upper crust, with homes in Boston and New York, narrowly escaped being Manta Master's fourth victim. Attended the Halloween party at Top of the Hub.
Roy McCoy and His Hyperalloy Decoys Theme villain with a duck hunter idiom. Viewed by Revolution as evidence that 1-800-HENCHMEN had hit the bottom of the local talent pool, although he did manage to drop Thunderbolt once, much to the latter's chagrin.

National Human Advancement Council WCL front organization for biotech operations.
Newton Needle's cat. Other, more paranoid team members suspect it's not a cat at all. Newton has yet to give any evidence to this effect.
Odin Probably insane theme villain with extensive cybernetic implants and the eighteen-wheeler from hell called Sleipnir (currently under examination at GEMINI). Had four henchmen: Freki, Geri, Hugin, and Munin. First encountered in Norse Sense, by the events of Whiteout he was Gretchen St. John's tool.
Paranormal Investigation and Tactics Squad (PITS) A privately owned corporation, not government-funded, the company is based in Ohio.

Chandler Prentice A psychic with a range of minor talents which come in very handy on occasion. Acts as team therapist when necessary; as Lucky's self-appointed mentor, he is helping her free herself from her past, and he was intimately involved in Needle's attempt to discover her own history. Departed Boston for other projects, along with Lucky (Fireworks & Frenzy).
Yasmina Rajid (undead) She's at least three thousand years old, a vampire with Twilight powers. Beautiful, seductive, her smile can turn your blood to ice. She and Chandler have a history of some sort, and they occasionally do one another favors.
Tía Ramirez Tybalt's aunt (see Alley Cats), professional psychic, and apparent neutral in hero/villain terms.

Aware of her past, he was initially prejudiced against Lucky, but has since revised his opinion of her. Has something of a soft spot for Needle's problems (his wife hates her).
Candi Rich AKA Candace Richtofen, she's blonde, blue-eyed, and beautiful, a model and aspiring actress working for AMT on their soap opera Boston Common, Phoenix Talon's girlfriend and Travis Leone's roommate. She's also smarter than you'd expect.

Nick Stone Actor playing Thunderbolt on Boston Common.
Gretchen St. John Daemonmage with a fondness for theatrical, flashy spells. Used to be a part of the Coven until the Daemonwar ended and their power ebbed drastically.
