- Haventhorp, Zachl (hm) 868-?
don of the Independent gang the Agency, which tends not to engage in much violence, unless deals are broken or money is not paid when owed. They mostly deal in drugs and black market merchandise, and assorted illegal and quasi-illegal services, generally to upscale clients. They have their own niche, which rarely is in direct competition with InterGang or LandOrder.
- Slingshot, Mindy (hf) 899-?, Shipsister, Woodstockade, Tonad
chief enforcer of the Independent gang Ass-kickers Unlimited, she's also one of the gang's youngest members, having joined in 910 at the age of 11. She soon proved herself the toughest fighter around, having studied some form of martial art from Earth, though no one knows who taught her, as there are no known practitioners of such arts, on the Land. (It's rumored she may be a spirit-talker.) She also is an expert with various weapons, her favorite being a slingshot. Some people have claimed to see her use magic fireballs like Sorreters can, though this remains unconfirmed.
- Topdog, Frag (hm) 883-?
don of the Independent gang Ass-kickers Unlimited (sometimes called "Aku" for short). No one really knows if Frag is his given name; but then again, no one much cares. Aku is a fairly small-time gang that no one pays much heed to, consisting mostly of teenage punks who want to be badasses. And they do bad things, of course, but never mess with anyone from LandOrder or InterGang. In 912, Topdog considered expanding to other villages, and even approached Larami Illuminatus about possibly forming an alliance with her new gang, the Illuminati. While his offer was not met with open scorn, Illuminatus has no real interest in Aku, though she may use them from time to time.
- Dockrat, Jack (hm) 880-?
don of the Ship branch of the BiShip gang.
- Longshore, Milo (hm) 879-?
don of the Shipsister branch of the BiShip gang.
- Ambrosius, Warren (hm) 872-?
chief spy of the Independent gang the Black Profits.
- Mancer, Gillian (hf) 876-?
a master-adept, and chief Sorreter of the Independent gang the Black Profits.
- Noir, Dirk XIX (hm) 882-?
don of the Independent, single-village gang the Black Profits. Not much is known of this secretive gang, though it is rumored to have existed far longer than any of the other gangs on the Land, in spite of the fact that no one had ever heard of it until after the founding of LandOrder and InterGang during the Coming. In 912, Noir declined Larami Illuminatus' offer to unite his gang with her new Illuminati.
Tonad (capital of Illuminati)
- Illuminatus, Larami (hf) 872-?
capo of the Illuminati. Former don of the Tonad branch of InterGang.
- Malone, Dustin (hm) 858-?
First Sorreter of the Illuminati. Formerly chief Sorreter of the Tonad branch of InterGang. He chosed his Order-name based on a character from an Earth book he once read.
- Milkman, Bradford (hm) 887-?
First Spy of the Illuminati. Formerly chief spy of the Tonad branch of InterGang, he left along with his former don (and now capo), Larami Illuminatus.
- Cognoscente, Porter (hm) 887-?
don of the Tonad branch of the Illuminati. Former don of the Brills.
- Hornpowder, Lydia (hf) 886-?
don of the Tanq branch of the Illuminati. Former don of InterGang in Tanq, she was recruited by Larami Illuminatus to join her new gang.
- Mysshroudedtery, Amelia (hf) 874-?
capo of InterGang. She is in many ways a brilliant leader, and tries to predominantly (with a few special exceptions) employ brilliant people in her gang, especially in leadership positions such as dons or department chiefs. Her village of residence is the unofficial capital of InterGang, because she and her top people live there. However, few people if anyone outside of her small, personal staff who actually live there, actually know which village it is she lives in and runs the gang from.
- T'Magus, Mordechai (hm) 864-?
First Sorreter of InterGang; all chief Sorreters of the various branches of the gang report to him. He is a trusted friend, advisor, and of course employee of capo Amelia Mysshroudedtery. Technically he is also chief Sorreter of InterGang in his village, but it's rather an unofficial position, because his village, which is technically the capital village of InterGang, doesn't officially have a branch of the gang. (He might also be Amelia's lover; and a spy for the Protestant Sorreters.)
- Zelcorner, Rocher (hm) 880-?
don of the Jump Village branch of InterGang. Also has a monopoly on zelfruit.

- Manager, Seth (hm) 877-?
don of the Plist branch of InterGang
- Bipolar, Thom (hm) 876-?
chief enforcer of the Tonad branch of InterGang; suffers from bipolar disorder
- Val, Ezra (hf) 867-?
don of the Tonad branch of InterGang, beginning in the year 912, after Larami Illuminatus broke away (or was fired, depending on who you ask) and started her own gang, the Illuminati. Ezra was formerly Illuminatus' chief Adult, and was rather surprised when capo Mysshroudedtery chose her as a replacement, never having really thought of the gang as her main career. However, she does her best to justify the capo's confidence in her, and now focuses solely on this new job.

spy in the Triscot branch of InterGang.

Kimrin (capital of LandOrder)
- Newline, Merv (hm) 863-?
First Sorreter of LandOrder, and chief Sorreter of its Kimrin branch. He first went to Kimrin as an agent of Durell (see religious figures), one of many such people sent to encourage gangs to intensify their activities and unite with other villages' gangs. It was also his idea that gangs should begin employing Sorreters. He soon met and befriended Capp Primus, with whom he shared a mostly serious disposition, and worked closely with him in expanding his village's gang and contacting others, including Chieftain, Amalgamator, and Fourth.
- Primus, Capp (hm) 863-?
capo of LandOrder, and don of its Kimrin branch. The word 'capo' was first used on the Land in his honor, as a title for the head of an intervillage gang. Capp and his brother, Poss Primus (see Second Order), were born in Triscot, and their family, when the boys were young, were among the settlers of Kimrin.
- Fourth, Roger (hm) 868-?
don of the First Village branch of LandOrder. He is unofficially considered to be the fourth-most important member of the original founders of LandOrder, hence his choice of surname. He is also third in line to replace Capp Primus, should he die or retire.
- Kidman, Roark (hm) 881-?
chief spy of the First Village branch of LandOrder.
- Holdup, Kureth (hm) 877-?

don of the Plist branch of LandOrder. The word 'don' was first used on the Land in his honor, as a title for the head of a gang's branch in each village, or for the head of any single-village gang. He is first in line to replace Capp Primus.
- Citman, Adolpho (hm) 878-?
chief Adult of the Plist branch of LandOrder. His clan owns citrus orchards; he created yellow ha'citfruit (normal ha'citfruit being pink).

Adult in the Tanq branch of LandOrder. Also an actor with the Tooblan Company, and occasionally a parking attendant.
- Atwater, Cabbit (hf) 890-?
spy in the Tonad branch of LandOrder. Her clan lives near Drop River, hence the surname "Atwater." Cabbit is a great admirer of Palzo Atwood. She is also a childhood friend of her boss, Jasp Underground.
- Breakhead, Xander (hm) 884-?
don of the Tonad branch of LandOrder. Very tough, but not very bright. He is however smart enough to treat his people well, and earns their respect. He also surrounds himself with fairly intelligent people, and trusts their advice.
- RD, Merril (hm) 875-?
chief Sorreter of the Tonad branch of LandOrder. His last name stands for "Razzle Dazzle." He does enjoy a certain degree of... theatricality... in his majic, but at the same time, he didn't want to actually call himself "Razzle Dazzle," which is why he chose an abbreviation for his official surname.
- Underground, Jasp (hm) 881-?
chief spy of the Tonad branch of LandOrder. He becomes a liaison between LandOrder and the upstart Chaos Rebellion. He is a childhood friend of one of his spies, Cabbit Atwater.
- Amalgamator, Cherilyn (hf) 866-?
don of the Triscot branch of LandOrder. One of the four original founders of LandOrder, and second in the line of succession, should anything happen to Capp Primus.
- Des'Caina, Silas (em) 862-?
chief sorcerer of the Woodstockade branch of LandOrder. Formerly a sorcerer in InterGang, he was wooed away by LandOrder, which previously had no chief sorcerer in Woodstockade. He had long been frustrated by the apparent lack of appreciation shown him by InterGang, constantly passed over for promotion to chief sorcerer. He is a direct descendant of Caina (see First 50 Elves), who was herself High Sorcerer of the village for over 30 years. Silas, it is also quite important to note, created vampyres.
- Des'Tambor, Listrin (em) 862-?
don of the Woodstockade branch of LandOrder. Father of Vallery, his chief spy. Uncle of Remy (an hautbasist in the Royal Orchestra).
