The Graveyard Quartet references 2017 (concept) by ThePurpleGriffin The Graveyard Quartet references 2017 (concept) by ThePurpleGriffin

canisters 

Here are the references I promised!!! I drew these a while back but I kept on forgetting to post them. I also included some slight backstories and traits but they're rough concepts.  


Jim: 

- Crime boss; ringleader 
- WW2 veteran
- Around 30-40 years old
- Tough, ruthless, and intimidating, Jim isn't the man you'd want to deal with. He is completely numb to violence and wouldn't mind killing someone if necessary.
- He seems to have a strange obsession with his 1908 Luger.
- Jim also suffers from slight PTSD due to his experience with WW2. 
- He also loves bubble baths and apple cider. Sometimes he eats Bradley's cake and lies about it. 
- Although he doesn't show it, Jim cares deeply about his gang and he'd hate to see any of them get hurt. 


Bradley:

- Con man 
- Former gang leader 
- Around 20-30 years old
- Brad originally wanted to be an actor/stage performer but wasn't considered "attractive enough" to take the job. He had to resort to crime instead. 
- He's violent, cunning and stubborn. He hates taking orders and would much rather handle things his own way, which often puts the gang in danger. However, Jim tries his best to knock some sense into him. 
- He loves to boast about his youth and how strong he is. He also loves to fight up close and personal but will cheat and use a gun when losing.


Luigi: 

- Marksman 
- Former Italian Mafia associate 
- Around 30 years old 
- Luigi used to be a member of the original Italian Mafia, but the entire gang was dispersed when it was getting too dangerous for it to exist. 
- Luigi is extremely loyal and nothing can separate him from his comrades except for death. He's also known to make jokes and even sarcastic remarks but knows when to tone it down a bit. 


Perkins:

- Banker
- Around 30 years old 
- Perkins came from a long line of rich people and received all of his family's money as the only heir left. Jim saved his life so he joined the gang and funded most of it. 
- He generally fights less than the other members and sits around counting money all day. He's generally cold, unsociable, and quiet. 
- There's something wrong with his right eye so he wears a monocle. 


So uh yeah it's not perfect but it'll do XD
