Appearance: straight and tall, He looks as if he was a regular guy if it weren't for what looks to be a permanent scowl on his face.

Personality: Has a hatred for most everyone and everything, he hardened himself up where only friends and family are the only things that he doesn't hate. But get on his bad side, and you'll see that hatred come right out directed exactly at you.

History: Born in the edge of the bayou before the majority of the Clan moved over to the Basin, he was one of the reasons the local town feared the Clan for years to come. In his teens, he was already leader of a gang in town, and already committing multiple degrees of assault, murder, and robberies. He and his brother Amos were wanted by most every county in Louisiana by the time the rest of the Jagneaux Clan moved over...That's when things really started to make Henri and Amos happy, people would keep away from the new family claim, only the most gutsy, and or idiotic, would stay near them, constantly stuck in a feud with them. When the feuds would turn cold, he and his brother Amos would sneak onto the neighbors' land, viciously slaughter some of the livestock, and jump back to their land for the next morning to have one less neighbor. After the family moved to St. Louis, He and his brother wouldn't stay on the right side of the law for long, as almost instantly, they had robbed three different stores over a period of two weeks. Getting arrested the day after Amos was caught, both were bailed by the Clan, and decided that robbing the boats running liquor up and down the Mississippi would be a lot easier then robbing stores. This paid off as their first boarding yielded over 4 small kegs of good ol' Prohibition liquor. They decided to make extra cash to top it off, by giving it to his cousin Raymond. During their first days of business, they came across a certain patron which most of the other customers called "Jackal" who happened to be quite the shot. They hired him, and the three continued robbing the transports. After gaining multiple members in their gang since that day, including Jackal's brother, John. He continues robbing the liquor transports of his cousin's rivals and supplying them.

Appearance: Straight up with a evil glare at everyone and everything, he looks as if he would kill anybody that even glanced at him.

Personality: Known for being extremely agitated almost all the time, he's prone to outbursts of anger, usually taking it out on whoever started said anger. When he's not attempting to kill someone by means of head trauma, he's usually in a drunken state, or in a ,albeit rare, calm steadied personality. He usually is in the calm when he's hunting, as causing a lot of noise is not the best when hunting large game.

Special skills: From training with a revolver, he started getting better with them then most of his kin who prefer rifles or shotguns, he became extremely fast with firing a revolver with amazing accuracy.

History: Working along side his brother Henri since before he could care to remember, always getting into trouble with the law. In his teens he had a count of 17 different arrests, most for property damage and trespassing, while his brother caused a lot more serious crimes, though Amos was mostly the reason behind his brother committing the crimes they did. When the rest of the Clan moved over, he decided to really start committing more serious crimes along side his brother, once even beating a man to death with a stolen pair of brass knuckles over having a glass of liquor spilled on him. When the Clan moved to the outskirts of Saint Louis, he and his brother couldn't keep a clean rap for long, as soon they were right back to robbing and killing. After him and Henri getting arrested a day apart and then later bailed by their kin, they started robbing boats transporting liquor up from down south. After making constant runs and gathering liquor up, they decided to start supplying their cousin Raymond's speakeasy, for a cut of the profits that is. They then hired Jackal after a short conversation which turned into a bet on who could shoot better. After a couple more runs they gained more and more gang members, becoming the essential of "River Pirates" which he decided on naming their gang. He currently works with his brother and cousins, still robbing liquor transports and gaining the profits from his and Henri's dealings.

History: Born in Eubank, Kentucky, Jack lived a rather average life on a farm with his brother, John. When he was just a kid he was known as a rather adventurous child, usually found by neighbors who caught him trespassing and would hand him over to his parents. He was frequently in trouble with the law in his preteen days, usually getting arrested for trespassing, once for insulting an officer, and when he was 15, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon when he robbed, and shot, a traveling salesman over loosing a bet in a poker game. He was paroled two years later for good behavior, and left for St. Louis a couple months after being released. He joined up with Henri after the two met at Henri's cousins' speakeasy after hearing about Henri and Amos's way of grabbing liquor to help the speakeasy. Hired for his marksmanship, he would shoot the driver of a boat that was pedaling liquor through the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, and the gang would board, robbing the rumrunners blind and then blowing up the boat with dynamite after everything was off. After a successful first couple a months, he got a surprise when one of the boats they were looting turned out to have a couple prisoners that the gangsters were taking somewhere in the city, most likely their boss. Among those prisoners, was his brother. After talking Henri and Amos into helping the prisoners, They had gotten quite the help from the prisoners volunteering to join the gang to keep robbing the liquor transports. With those new volunteers, the Jagneaux Clan grew a lot more powerful in the bootlegging business, earning a reputation for robbing their rivals' suppliers, slowly killing their rival's business.

History: Born in Eubank, Kentucky, John was a lot more shy then his brother, prefering to stay in the house and read oppose to adventuring around the backwoods. When his brother would be starting trouble with the neighbors and police, he'd be making friends with the police, hoping to join the Police force. Instead, he heard his brother robbed a man and decided to hightail it out of there to avoid getting dragged into the investigation against his own brother. When his brother was in jail, he had left town for a couple weeks to avoid being part of the trial, however when the Trial ended he moved back in with his kin, happy he avoided the trial. A couple months after his brother had left, he ran away from home to southern Missouri making a living by selling firearms he had stolen from a gang. When that gang caught wind of him, he was in a rude awakening when they bust into his shop, tied him up, and started heading up the river to Saint Louis to meet their boss. After a couple days on the river he got surprised to hear gunfire coming from the upper deck. When the gunfire died down, someone started heading down the stairs, he assumed it was just one of the gang members making sure none of them had tried to escape while the gunfight up top had went on, only to see not only two robbers who had jumped the ship, but his brother with those two. After the whole fiasco was over, he and the other prisoners volunteered to join or support the gang that had just saved their lives from what could only have been certain death. He joined up with his brother, and set up a warehouse near their boss's property, storing up the guns that he'd collect from not only robbing the liquor transports, but also some firearms he had gathered from his travels, becoming an go-to Arms-dealer in Saint Louis and for the Jagneaux Clan.
