Powers and Abilities

“Them” are a hateful, spiteful street gang. They mostly rely on people not daring to face them, though. Their leader, Top Hat, has a trick umbrella with a blade in the end, and a knife hidden in the handle.

They have more Hero Points than you’d expect — the fight was not that easy for Diana.

History

Them was a trio acting as a small street gang in New York City’s Lower East Side. They were quite skilled at using petty terrorist tactics to make other people live in fear, and extort favours from them. At one point, they captured a runaway teenager named Cathy Perkins, turning her into a slave.

Cathy fled from the domineering female trio and hid in Diana’s Prince boutique, which was deserted since Diana was busy fighting a war in another dimension. Diana came back just as Them discovered Cathy. They threw her a leash and dog collar ; angry, Diana beat them up and threw them out of her boutique. She then sheltered Perkins until she would accept to return to her parents’ place.

The trio then started using their usual tactics against Diana and Cathy - swearing they would reover their slave and make Diana a slave, too. They chanted under their windows all night long, had street contacts harass them, shredded many of the clothes in the boutique while Diana was away, and eventually threw molotov cocktails in the shop.

This angered Diana’s neighbour, Tony Petrucci, a Vietnam war veteran and possibly a mobster. Petrucci, some of his boys and Diana faced Them in the street (along with a half-dozen other street criminals) and beat them up ; during the scuffle, it was revealed that Top Hat had a hidden compartment in her hat, where recently stolen jewels were stored.

The gang was taken away by the police, and never seen since. As for Cathy, Diana hired her to help her with the boutique.

Description

See illustration.

Personality

Vicious, cruel, petty, under-handed bitches. They know honest people usually have neither the time nor the courage to face their constant harassment and will not resist them for long. This makes them quite confident, and somebody putting up strong resistance will greatly anger them.

They know they are small fry, and keep a respectful distance away from people who actually might be dangerous and/or connected. They did not realize quickly enough how dangerous Diana Prince could be, however.

The material heavily implied that Them are lesbians in a then-contemporary (i.e., now bafflingly dated and easy to miss) way.
