- List of Sons of Anarchy characters
This is a list of characters from Sons of Anarchy. Sons of Anarchy is a drama on the American TV network FX; it focuses on the lives of an outlaw motorcycle club in Northern California.
Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club
Active SAMCRO members
Clarence "Clay" Morrow (Ron Perlman) is the current president of the Sons of Anarchy mother chapter, SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original), and the youngest original member of the club. He has been married to Gemma since the death of her first husband John Teller in 1993. Clay has been shown to struggle with his age and developing arthritis, frequently allowing Jax to handle Club affairs. According to Gemma, Clay has done time (as did her first husband John). The role was played by Scott Glenn in the first version of the pilot.
Jackson "Jax" Teller (Charlie Hunnam) is SAMCRO's vice president. Born in 1978 to John and Gemma Teller, he has lived his whole life in Charming and has been raised in the club; as a result, this is the only life he knows. His day job is a mechanic at Teller-Morrow Automotive Repair. He has past arrests for smuggling and gun-running but has been clean since approximately 2003. Having recently discovered several of his father's old journals and an old manuscript entitled The Life and Death of Sam Crow: How the Sons of Anarchy Lost Their Way, which collectively lays out the original manifesto for SAMCRO, he finds himself doubting the club's direction, causing friction between him and his stepfather Clay, as well as creating doubt with some of the other members. Jax has an infant son named Abel who, since his birth, has radically altered Jax's mentality as he begins to focus on the "big picture" and being a father to Abel in the future, making him much more cautious. Jax has romantic ties to Abel's birth mother Wendy and his high school sweetheart Tara.
Bobby "Elvis" Munson (Mark Boone Junior) is SAMCRO's secretary/treasurer. He does Elvis impersonations in Lake Tahoe. Munson is Jewish and a demolition and explosives expert. He was incarcerated for the murder of Brenan Hefner after a woman that lived in the building witnessed the killing and went to the police. He was released a few months after Jax threatened the witness into leaving California and the case against him was based completely on the witness's testimony.
Alex "Tig" Trager (Kim Coates) is SAMCRO's sergeant-at-arms. He is particularly close to Clay and is one of the club's more violent members, who has on occasion mentioned disturbing parts of his past, including his mention (perhaps jokingly) of enjoying necrophilia. Though respecting Jax's intelligence, Tig questions Jax's ability to lead as SOA enters a more brutal era in the club's history with the Mayans and the Nords. Tig was the one who was to carry out the hit on Opie but instead mistakenly killed Opie's wife Donna. Afterwards, Tig seemed to be in a state of depression and seemingly let Jax beat him after Jax forced him at gun point not to kill the witness who was going to identify Bobby and Opie for the murder of Brenan Hefner. He also allowed Opie to beat him after confessing to Donna's accidental murder.
Filip "Chibs" Telford (Tommy Flanagan) (not "Chip") is a member of SAMCRO and extremely loyal to Jax. He is originally from Glasgow, Scotland but grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland and served as a medic with the British Army. This, however, only lasted five months and Chibs was expelled after a court martial. His battlefield experience makes him the club's medic for backroom emergency surgery. The word "chib" is Scottish street slang for a blade, a slash or a cut (a "chibbing" is usually a disfiguring facial attack with a knife or similar sharp object). Chibs was seriously injured by a car bomb explosion at the club's garage. His estranged wife Fiona, and daughter Kerrianne currently lives with Real IRA leader Jimmy O. Chibs was originally a member of the True IRA , but a conflict with Jimmy O over his wife Fiona forced him to leave Ireland.
Harry "Opie" Winston (Ryan Hurst) is a member of SAMCRO and son of co-founder Piney. Best friends with Jax since childhood, Opie's mom took him away from Piney and Charming when he was 16 but he left her and returned to his father and the club. He also carries a Buck 110 Folding Hunter on his waistband.
In season one, Opie was paroled from a five year stay in prison following his conviction for a botched arson (blowing up a truck yard) with ex-member Kyle Hobart. Struggling to support his family earning "clean" money ever since through his job at a local lumber mill, he faces conflicting pressure from his wife, Donna, who wants him to leave the club, and from SOA members, due to his reluctance to participate in their frequently illegal activities. Facing a deteriorating marriage, he participates in all of SOA's activities to end the "half in-half out" mentality he took regarding his devotion to his family and to SAMCRO. Clay and Tig's secret plan to get the Mayans and One-Niner's to war against each other fails and Opie is forced to kill for the first time during the series when one of the One-Niners gets the drop on Tig. His wife, Donna, was killed by Tig during a botched hit against him after June Stahl set him up as a "snitch" against the club in an attempt to take down SAMCRO.
In season two, Opie still suffers from depression following Donna's death making him very emotionally distant from his children. He eventually starts a relationship with pornstar Lyla, herself also a single parent. When a guilt-ridden Tig finally reveals that he accidentally killed Donna, Opie's anger comes full-circle but he manages to handle himself well, forgiving Tig and Clay for the good of the club and agreeing to join with Jax in removing the club from Clay's brutal tendencies. He also persuades Clay to forgive both Chibs and Piney for transgressions against the club - Chibs for considering a deal with Agent Stahl, Piney for attempting to kill Clay in retribution for Donna.
In season three, Opie experiences relationship trouble with Lyla, being uncomfortable with her pornstar lifestyle. When Lyla and her pornstar friends are entertaining businessmen for a deal between SAMCRO and the Triads, Opie starts a fight that loses the club a good cash payment. To make up for his mistake, he sells one of his motorcycles to get money for the club (which is ultimately used as a retainer for a bounty hunter, but is not refunded when the bounty hunter's services are not needed). He later seeks advice from Gemma on his relationship and proposes to Lyla.
In the Season 3 finale, Opie and Lyla announce they are getting married. After the ATF arrests certain members of SAMCRO, Opie, Chibs, Piney and Kozik ambush Stahl (with the help of Wayne Unser). He executes Stahl by shooting her in the back of the head with a Mac-10 (possibly the same one Tig used to kill Donna), explaining to her that is how Donna died. He shows physical relief for having finally gotten revenge.
In season four Opie is shown to have worked with Chibs, Piney and Kozik in holding SAMCRO together with the other members in prison and establishing the updated supply line of Irish weaponry. He and Lyla marry in the season premiere. While he is reluctant to enter into a deal with the drug cartel, fearing what his incarceration or death would do to his new family, he votes yes in the final decision trusting Jax to steer the club in the right direction. Unknown to him however, Jax intends to leave the club after the deal is complete and is pushing Clay to pick Opie as his successor. Eventually when trying to track Georgie Caruso for Luann's murder, he gets to Lyla's room and discovers that she has been using Morning-after Pills which infuriates him as she has been denying him a child together. This ultimately leads to Opie to calm his sorrows with Ima, and Jax confronts him about the situation, who is equally disturbed. Opie admits to Jax that things with Lyla are not really working well and that he still misses Donna. In "Call of Duty" Opie finds his father shot to death and is told by Unser that Clay killed him setting Opie on a course for revenge.
Juan Carlos "Juice" Ortiz (Theo Rossi) is the club's hacker and intelligence officer. Though Juice displays great technical prowess, he has also proven to be somewhat simple-minded when it comes to other tasks, often garnering him hazing from the other members.
He is also in charge of club surveillance and manages some of the club's intelligence and communication. He is seen as unreliable by Clay Morrow, the club president, and is often given menial tasks such as driving the transport truck. He sports a short mohawk and has Tribal designs tattooed on each side of his head.
Juice attempted to hang himself with a chain in the 7th episode of season 4 shortly after receiving a "Men of Mayhem" patch, but the branch broke, leaving him with a bad bruise on his neck noticed by Tig and Chibs. Chibs later confronts him and comforts him as he cries.
Happy Lowman (David LaBrava) is a member of the Redwood Original charter of the club. Formerly part of the Tacoma charter, he stated in the episode "Better Half" that his sick mother lives in Bakersfield and that he wanted to go "nomad" (a nomad is a member of a motorcycle club with no fixed address and, thus, no charter affiliation) for awhile to take care of her. Clay's response to that statement was "There's always a seat at that table for you brother." Happy is a ruthless killer and sports a happy face tattoo for each one of his assassinations. Like "Tig" he is looked to for the jobs for which no one else has the stomach. Happy is noted for using his pair of 9mm Glocks. In the episode, The Push, Happy was unanimously patched into the Redwood Original Charter.
"Big Otto" Delaney (Kurt Sutter), is a member of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club. Delaney was born in Colma, California on September 29, 1963 and was a member of the Sons of Anarchy's Charming chapter. He is currently imprisoned in Stockton state prison on charges of second-degree murder and vehicle theft, but is still in contact with the club. He seems to be a powerful man on the inside and is the leader of the "Big House Crew", a gang made up of imprisoned Sons of Anarchy. His "old lady" is Luann (now deceased) with whom he was deeply in love. He has her name tattooed on his left arm. In Season 2, Otto is ambushed by inmates affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood, at Ethan Zobelle's command, and after being beaten up, the Aryan in charge of the attack, Squirrel (David J. Wright), goes one step further by gouging Otto's good eye out with a broken mop handle (stating "Beating was from the League! This is from me!"). The attack leaves him with only 10% vision. Otto suffers further when he is told by Jax that Luann was murdered, possibly by rival porn producer Georgie Caruso, news which completely devastates him. In the Season 2 finale, Squirrel, while in the prison's reading room, is attacked and beaten into submission by SAMCRO sympathizers and then Otto, with assistance, stabs Squirrel in the neck with a screw-driver, killing him. Otto mirrors back Squirrel's words as he kills him (whispering "Beating was from SAMCRO. This is from me."). Otto is released from lockdown in the Season 3 finale, and at SAMCRO's request, he asks Lenny "the Pimp" Janowitz, another imprisoned SOA member, for information on Jimmy O and the Russians. The reason for Otto's absence and imprisonment in lockdown is revealed during conversation with Clay and Bobby—Otto is being charged with murdering Squirrel, and he believes the case against him is too strong; there were cameras in the reading room that recorded surveillance footage of him killing Squirrel, and Otto has no chance to plea down due to a report on Otto stating he "continues to show a pattern of aggressive behavior". Otto, at the time, is unsure of what type of sentence he will receive, as his public defender, whom he had to resort to, "doesn't speak very good English", however Otto confesses to a devastated Clay and Bobby that he is sure he will be sentenced to death, and that by the time the SAMCRO members facing prison are arraigned and actually get to jail, Otto will be on Death Row. In Season 4, Otto is seen to still be alive, but in solitary. On the day of SAMCRO's release, Otto receives a razor blade hidden in his breakfast egg and slices his wrist. This turns out to be a plan set up by SAMCRO as a guard slipped a scalpel to Otto, who proceeds to kill the Russian mobster who tried to kill Jax in prison. Later he is met by Linc Potter, and shown proof that Luann was with Bobby prior to her death, suggesting that "the person having sex with the victim is the perpetrator". While he believes the tests, he cannot believe Bobby killed Luann, so he contacts Gemma, so that the club can exact vengeance and kill Luann's murderer, prompting the club to look for Georgie Caruso. As the club ultimately decides to spare Georgie's life so they can use his billionaire contacts to end Charming Heights, Bobby visits him to tell Otto what happened, apologizing for being with Luann but claiming there was no love between them and Luann did indeed love Otto. When Otto asked if they killed Luann's murderer, Bobby said they did, lying to Otto when he was instructed to tell the truth that they needed Georgie alive temporarily. Otto is later approached by AUSA Lincoln Potter, who hopes to turn him against SAMCRO, as he claims Otto has suffered more for the club than any other imprisoned member - it is during this conversation that Otto's original sentence was for 6 years, but it was later extended to 30; currently Otto is on Death Row, thus confirming Otto was sentenced to death for killing Squirrel. Eventually Otto reaches to Linc Potter and attempts to deal with him, giving him info of the club's criminal activities, so as long as his conditions are signed and met. These include that Lenny "The Pimp" be allowed visitations, and that his execution is carried before date, amongst others. So far only the former is the only condition that has not been met as Linc Potter is suspicious of what Otto wants by giving Lenny more freedom.
Lenny "The Pimp" Janowitz
Lenny "The Pimp" Janowitz (Sonny Barger) is an imprisoned member of the club, convicted for "allegedly" murdering three ATF agents. He is a member of the First 9. He has connections with the Russian mob and helps the club get in contact with Victor Putlova to discuss a deal to have the Russians hand over Jimmy O to the Sons. He is presumably the Sgt. At Arms while john Teller was President. Barger, who portrayed Janowitz, was a founding member of the Hells Angels of Oakland, California, with whom show creator Kurt Sutter is friends.
Prospects are men that must prove their worth to the club before they become a full member. They must go through at least a one year period to be worthy of becoming full members. Prospects must be tapped into the club by members and then unanimously voted by the current members of the club in order to attain member status. Prospects are not allowed to vote on club decisions. Prospects generally do not sit at the table unless they are personally involved in a situation. This was shown when Half-Sack sat at the table when they discussed how to deal with Cherry after she was arrested by the ATF. Prospects are also utilized by the club during war time or as muscle back-up. Prospects are generally kept out of the loop about the club's dealings, but can be deemed as trustworthy to help out the club like guarding a shipment and not knowing exactly what is inside the shipment. At the beginning of the show, SAMCRO only had Half-Sack going through a prospect period. After Half-Sack's death, the club voted in three new prospects. They included Phillip "Filthy Phil" Russell (Christopher Reed), Shepard (Leo Fitzpatrick) and Eric Miles (Frank Potter). In "Lochan Mor", a terrified Shepard quits his prospect position after he witnesses Hector Salazar attack Lumpy's gym. Later in the season 3 finale, Filthy Phil and Miles follow behind the armored car carrying the imprisoned SAMCRO members and honk the horns on their bikes to let them know that Jimmy and Stahl are finally dead. In the episode, Out, it was revealed that Filthy Phil was still a prospect, but Miles had been patched into the club. Two new prospects were also introduced briefly, Chris "V-Lin" Von Lin (Walter Wong) and George "Ratboy" Sedgtraw (Niko Nicotera). In the episode, Brick, Prospects Filthy Phil and Ratboy are asked to guard cocaine bricks for SAMCRO and the Mayans, but are not told that they are guarding cocaine. When one of the bricks goes missing, Filthy Phil and Ratboy are immediately considered suspects. Since they are not patched-in members, their credibility is low. Filthy Phil and Ratboy were forced to play Russian Roulette and sit in a room with the loaded gun in order to prove their loyalty to the club. They are later exonerated after Juice framed Miles for the theft.
Former SAMCRO Members
- John Thomas
- 25th Infantry
- May 5, 1940
- Nov 13 1993
- "WE FIGHT BECAUSE
- WE BELIEVE"
—The text on John's tombstone
John Thomas Teller (May 5, 1940 – November 13, 1993) (voiced by Nicholas Guest) founded the Sons of Anarchy with Piney Winston and was the club's first president. He was Gemma's first husband and they had two children together, Jax and Tommy. Thomas "Tommy" Teller (January 8, 1984 – April 4, 1990), died from a congenital heart defect at only six years old.
In 1993 John was hit by a semi-truck and died two days later of his injuries. Before his death he wrote a manuscript called The Life and Death of Sam Crow: How the Sons of Anarchy Lost Their Way. The manuscript quotes many beat poets and writers. It espouses a '60s ideology of fighting for freedom but not for material goods. Jax found a copy of this book and another copy was given to Piney whom John calls his oldest, dearest and wisest friend. At the conclusion of Season 1, Piney gave his copy of the manuscript to Jax during Donna's (Opie's wife) funeral while Jax was sitting on Tommy Teller's grave.
In season 2, Gemma tells Jax that after Tommy's death, John had become lost. She suspects that John's death was not an accident but implies that it may have been suicidal.
It is revealed in season 3 that John is the father of Belfast resident and Real IRA affiliate Maureen Ashby's daughter Trinity, a fact that neither Gemma, nor Jax or even Trinity herself, were aware of. While in Ireland, John became good friends with Father Kellan Ashby. Following Jimmy O's attack on the Ashby residence, Father Ashby attempts to defend John's life choices to Gemma, however, Gemma angrily states to Ashby that while John was in Ireland with his mistress, his son Tommy was dying of his heart defect back in Charming. Ashby tells Jax that one of John's wishes was for his sons not to get caught up in the outlaw lifestyle that is part of being a member of the SOA. Later, Maureen Ashby looks at a letter from John Teller in which he stated his frustrations with his life in Charming and his fear that his wife Gemma and his friend Clay Morrow were getting close. In the finale, Tara reads his letters to his mistress Maureen Ashby, who hid them in Jax's belongings hoping he would gain insight into who his father really was. He makes it clear that he knows Gemma and Clay are together, and that he does not belong in the club and highly suspects he will be killed soon and the perpetrators will be Gemma and Clay.
In the season 4 premiere Jax tells Tara about his desire to get out of the club and she mentions that John had the same desire. Jax believes that his father was a coward, because if he really wanted to get out of SAMCRO he would've just done it. In the episode, Brick, it was revealed through conversations with Clay, Gemma, and Unser that Tara's suspicions that John's death wasn't an accident were confirmed true. Clay admits that he killed John Teller because John wanted to get out of the gun running business. Gemma and Unser either directly helped or complcitly helped Clay with the deed. Clay is afraid of what the letters contained because if Jax finds out that Clay killed John, he would cut off his head and put it on the "reaper pole".
Kyle Hobart (Brian Van Holt) was ex-communicated from the club after abandoning Opie during an arson job, leading to Opie's five year incarceration. With Clay's blessing he returned to Charming to see his teenage son (William F. Nicol) and ended up trying to offer SAMCRO a business deal involving stolen goods which was to serve as repayment for his past mistake. Opie confronted Kyle and the two settled their beef, but it was discovered that Kyle had failed to perform the club mandate to remove his Sons of Anarchy back tattoo, so he was given a choice of removal methods ("Fire or knife?"). Choosing fire, the tattoo was burned off Kyle's back with a cutting torch. He loses consciousness during the process, and it is unknown if Kyle was still alive after being left on the steps of St. Thomas Hospital, where his ex-wife April (Liane Curtis) was waiting to aid him after being tipped off by Gemma that Kyle would likely need medical care.
Kip "Half-Sack" Epps (Johnny Lewis) was a prospective member of the club. He was a veteran of the Iraq War. His nickname ("Half-Sack") stems from his loss of a testicle. Half-Sack was also sometimes referred to as Prospect. He was the junior lightweight champion of the armed forces boxing competition and was a surprisingly formidable fighter. Half-Sack had a brief romance with Cherry that ended when Cherry had to leave Charming to avoid the ATF which was threatening to prosecute her for crimes she had committed in Nevada unless she turned on SAMCRO. He later got a prosthetic testicle which he seemed to be very proud of until his body rejected the implant. Half-Sack was within a month of completing his prospecting and all the members of the club were planning to vote to have him patched in. Half-Sack was stabbed in the stomach by Cameron Hayes in the season 2 finale while attempting to protect Tara and Abel. He was given his patch posthumously. It is later revealed by show creator Kurt Sutter that Johnny Lewis had a creative issue and wanted out of the show so the two found a noble way for him to go. Sutter is later quoted as saying he would be happy to work with Lewis in the future.
Eric Miles (Frank Potter) was the newest patched-in member of the Redwood Original Charter of Sons of Anarchy MC. He was introduced in the episode, The Push, as a prospect. Miles assisted the club with tasks such as cleaning the clubhouse, providing backup when they broke into Salazar's house, and watching Gemma to make sure she didn't leave the clubhouse when she was hiding from the law. In the episode, NS, Miles and fellow prospect, Filthy Phil, rode behind the prison van transporting some members of SAMCRO to jail. When news hit that Jimmy O and Stahl had been killed, they honked their horns to let the members know that the plan was a success. Miles later accompanied Filthy Phil to Gemma's house to give Gemma a letter from Jax which detailed the plans that the club used to execute Jimmy O and Stahl. When SAMCRO got out of prison fourteen months later, it was revealed that Miles was patched into the club. Miles is seen as the low man on the totem pole and is still bullied by the other club members making him do simple tasks like driving the tow truck or Happy making him clean up after his pancake mess. Miles was convinced by Opie to vote yes on transporting drugs for the Gallindo Cartel. In the episode, With an X, Miles was one of the suspects in regards to the brick of cocaine being stolen. Because he was a patched-in member, the club believed that he was not involved with the theft. In order to appease the Mayans, Happy pretended to bash Miles' hand with a hammer inside of a closed room. When Juice tried to put the brick of cocaine back, Miles caught him with the brick in his pants. A fight ensued between the two men with Miles shooting Juice once in the leg. Juice was able to grab Miles' gun and shot him through the head, killing him. As a result, Miles was framed as the thief of the cocaine. The club stripped Miles of his patch and buried him in a shallow, unmarked grave.
Piermont "Piney" Winston (William Lucking) was a co-founder of SAMCRO and father of Opie Winston. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War and must carry an oxygen tank with him at all times due to emphysema. He was upset with the direction the club was going especially after Donna's death. In the season one finale, it was revealed that he was given a copy of John Teller's manuscript which he passed onto Jax at Donna's funeral. Piney threatened Clay that if he didn't close the cartel deal and get out of the drug business, he would reveal JT's letters to the club, revealing Clay's true character (or lack thereof). Clay goes to the cabin where Piney was secluding himself, where Clay demands the letters. Piney tells Clay they aren't there, and Clay suspects out loud that Tara had them. Piney asks Clay to not get Tara involved to which Clay replies, "too late" before shooting him at point-blank-range in the chest with his shotgun. Before leaving the cabin, Clay checks to be sure Piney is dead and - literally - with Piney's blood on his hands, marking the wall with "LS" an attempt to make Piney's death look like a hit by rival drug cartel Lobos Sonora, with which SAMCRO has been having conflict. Piney is the 2nd member of Opie's family to have been killed at Clay's hand and the third First 9 member.
Herman Kozik (Kenny Johnson) was a member of the Tacoma chapter of the Sons of Anarchy. He first appeared in the Season 2 episode "The Culling" where he provided extra muscle when the Charming clubhouse was on lockdown. He is a Former US Marine and an Ex-Junkie. He appeared again in the Season 3 premiere at Half-Sack's wake, where he told Clay and Bobby that he wanted to come back to the Charming chapter. When Kozik showed up at SAMCRO with transfer papers, Tig vetoed the vote due to lack of trust. Kozik then decided to stick around to earn Tig's trust. First he and Piney lure the Mayans heroin shipment into SAMCRO's hands after flattening the van's tire. Later Kozik and Tig sneak into St. Thomas to silence the Calaveras member from the drive-by as part of SAMCRO's new deal with the Mayans. Kozik has a contentious relationship with Tig and in episode 3.8, Tig states that it involves a female from both of their pasts. When Tara Knowles and Margaret Murphy are taken hostage, Kozik proves to be useful. When Salazar demands that the club kills Marcus Alvarez, Kozik is the one who convinces Alvarez to play along to help buy time so SAMCRO can find a way to get the women back. Following Tara's rescue, Tig once again votes against Kozik's transfer. It is revealed that the "woman" from both of their pasts was a female dog named Missy. In Season 4, Kozik is revealed to have been patched into SAMCRO after Tig went to Stockton Prison, a fact Tig happily accepts upon being released. He was killed in the episode "Call of Duty" by stepping on a landmine that exploded while fighting the Cartel, his last words were "You gotta be shittin me".
Keith McGee (Andy McPhee) was the President of the Sons of Anarchy Belfast chapter (SAMBEL) in Northern Ireland and a member of the First 9. The Belfast charter helps the True IRA directly with muscle and has been mentioned by Jimmy O as being the right hand of the True IRA there. He was married to Maureen Ashby. After finding out that Abel is in Belfast, Clay neglects to contact McGee because he feels that McGee may be part of the conspiracy. In actuality, McGee was fully aware of Jimmy O's plans for SAMCRO and he and Liam O'Neill were directly involved. Liam did not trust McGee, because he felt that McGee's loyalty to the SOA and the First 9 was stronger than his loyalty to the IRA. McGee was nearly killed by the explosive-laden gun shipment that was meant to take out SAMCRO.
Following the botched bombing, McGee confronts O'Neill about his involvement in the bombing and tells him to go into hiding. Clay and SAMCRO are able to extract information from O'Neill's girlfriend Cherry and they find O'Neill's whereabouts. McGee tags along, but hangs back so he can call and warn O'Neill that SAMCRO is coming. SAMCRO catches O'Neill at his warehouse hideout and Sean Casey tortures him for information about his ties to Jimmy O'Phelan. Liam breaks under the pain and confesses that he and McGee are working for Jimmy O. Jimmy O's men attack the warehouse, but Jimmy is able to get away. SAMCRO corners McGee on the roof of the warehouse where he tells Clay that he betrayed the club for money from Jimmy O. Clay takes McGee's kutte, hugs him and kisses him on the cheek, and then executes him for his betrayal by pushing him off of the roof. The patches on McGee's cut are removed and the kutte itself is left to burn in a barrel. Before leaving Belfast, Clay gives McGee's First 9 patch to McGee's widow Maureen.
Liam O'Neill (Arie Verveen) was a member of the Belfast charter of the Sons of Anarchy. He was in a relationship with Cherry. According to Keith McGee, the president of the Belfast charter of the SOA, O'Neill was a member for 10 years. O'Neill, along with McGee, was secretly working for Jimmy O'Phelan. Liam O'Neill first appeared in "Caregiver" along with McGee, to ask Maureen if she knows anything about the whereabouts of Jax's son. In his second appearance, Jimmy O'Phelan has O'Neill tell Jax over the phone that Abel is not in Belfast. When SAMCRO arrives in Belfast, they still find O'Neill untrustworthy despite McGee's statements to the contrary. O'Neill did not trust McGee as far as being involved with the IRA. Because of McGee being a member of the First 9, O'Neill felt that he may have been more loyal to the SOA than the IRA. When SAMCRO tags along with SAMBEL on a protection run for a gun shipment, O'Neill leads them into an ambush by the state police, but for some reason the police let SAMCRO go. O'Neill's back-up plan is to secretly bomb a gun shipment that SAMCRO is protecting. While he is able to detonate the bomb without raising any suspicion, the plan ultimately fails as all SAMCRO members survive without any serious injuries, while five SAMBEL members, including Chibs' nephew Padraic Telford, are killed. Knowing he is the prime suspect in the bombing, O'Neill goes on the run. He is ultimately captured by SAMCRO, brutally tortured for information about Jimmy O'Phellan, and eventually shot to death by Jax for his betrayal to the club.
Seamus Ryan (Darin Heames) is the current president of SAMBEL. McGee was the original SAMBEL president and Ryan was the SAMBEL vice president during the betrayals and executions of McGee and Sergeant-at-Arms Liam O'Neill. After McGee and O'Neill were executed, Ryan was tapped as president.
Padraic Telford (Lorcan O'Toole) was Chibs' nephew. He was accidentally killed in an explosion triggered by Liam O'Neill in an attempt to take out SAMCRO.
Following SAMCRO's arrival to Ireland, trying to bring back Abel, several additional members of the Belfast chapter have appeared on the show, including Luther Barkwill (Dominic Keating), Geezer (Jason McDonald), Scrum (Darren Keefe) and a yet-to-be-named member (played by Brian Graham).
Armando (Lobo Sebastian) was the President of the Sons of Anarchy Tucson chapter (SAMTAZ) in Tucson Arizona. He was later beheaded by a cartel. The rest of his body was discovered in the back of a truck by the Sons of Anarchy and the Mayans, and his body was sent back to his club in Tucson along with his head.
Huff (Brian Goodman) was the vice president of the Tucson chapter, but was kicked out for blackmailing a fellow member, Reggie, and murdering another in order to cover up an non-club sanctioned meth cook shop.
Benny (Rolando Molina) was the Sergeant at Arms for the Tucson chapter, but was kicked out with V.P. Huff for blackmailing a fellow member, Reggie, and murdering another in order to cover up an non-club sanctioned meth cook shop.
Reggie (John Bishop) was a member of the Sons of Anarchy Tucson chapter (SAMTAZ) in Tucson Arizona. He was caught by former V.P. Huff sleeping with another member's old lady. Huff used this information to blackmail Reggie in order to cover up a non-club sanctioned meth cook shop and the murder of another member who happened to be Reggie's sponsor.
Little Paul was a member of the Sons of Anarchy Tucson chapter (SAMTAZ) in Tuscon Arizona. He was murdered by former V.P., Huff, and former Sgt. at Arms, Benny.
Other chapters members
"Uncle" Jury (Michael Shamus Wiles) is the head of the friendly Devil's Tribe MC in Indian Hills, Nevada. Jury and John Teller served together in the same platoon in Vietnam, "My dad saved his ass in Tay-Ninh he owes the Tellers a chit" said Jax, and remained close friends afterwards. After the Devil's Tribe was patched over, Jury became head of the Sons of Anarchy Indian Hills Nevada chapter.
Needles (Jay Thames) is the vice president of the Devil's Tribe MC chapter, following Jury in the patching over into a Sons of Anarchy chapter.
The First 9
"The First 9" refers to co-founders John Teller and Piermont "Piney" Winston plus the first seven members of the Sons of Anarchy. Current SAMCRO president Clay Morrow, and Lenny "The Pimp" Janowitz are the only First 9 members still alive. John Teller died in a motorcycle accident in 1993 (as planned by Clay), former SAMBEL president Keith McGee was executed by Clay Morrow in Belfast, Northern Ireland for betraying the club, and Piermont "Piney" Winston was killed by a shotgun wound to the chest also by Clay when Piney threatened to reveal John Teller's letters to the rest of the Sons of Anarchy. Rounding out the rest of The First 9 are Wally Grazer, Thomas "Uncle Tom" Whitney, Chico Vellenueva, and Otto "L'il Killer" Moran - not to be confused with Otto "Big Otto" Delaney
At this point, Clay has now killed both of the original co-founding members of the Sons of Anarchy, and 3 of The Original First 9 members. John Teller's fatal motorcycle accident was planned by Clay, Keith McGee was pushed off of a roof in Ireland by Clay, and Clay busted into "Piney" Winston's cabin and shot him in the chest with a shotgun when Piney would not reveal where John Teller's letters were.
Additionally many other members of different Sons of Anarchy chapters are seen throughout the series, although only as background characters. Among them are various nomads seen with Happy while attacking Darby's meth lab, and the members of various other chapters attending Donna's and Half-Sacks's funerals. Lee, Donut, Bowie, and Lorca are all members of the Tacoma chapter. The leader of the nomads has been referred to as Quinn, but is yet to appear on-screen.
Gemma Teller Morrow
Gemma Teller Morrow (Katey Sagal) is the queen of Charming. A Machiavellian schemer and expert in psychological manipulation, Gemma is the wife of Clay Morrow and the widow of John Teller. Gemma is extremely protective of her son Jax and grandson Abel and longs for the day when Jax will, in her eyes, be ready to assume control of SAMCRO in order to ensure the organization's survival for another generation. She adores her husband, Clay, and does her best to make things work out his way.
Dr. Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff) is Jax's main love interest. She is the mother of his son Thomas, and is the acting mother of his other son Abel. She is currently Jax's "old lady" and has been in training by Gemma, to be the next "Queen". She is second only to Gemma with the females in the SAMCRO community. Tara was Jax's high-school sweetheart and during this era she got a special crow/heart tattoo on her lower back signifying she was an "old lady" of a club member (Jax). Tara left town when Jax was 19, trying to get away from small-town life and the heavy-handed influence of the club. She moved back to Charming after becoming a doctor and now works as a pediatric resident at the local hospital, St. Thomas. She initially lived in her childhood home which was left to her by her father when he died. However, by the end of season 3, she was exclusively living at Jax's house. Tara is a capable physician and often tended to Jax's gravely ill infant son, Abel, during the infant's hospitalization. She saved his life during surgery. Tara has also secretly helped out various club members and SAMCRO family, tending to their wounds, after they have been injured. She also provided emergency medical care to Cameron Hayes after he was shot during the attempt on Clay's life. When Tara was growing up, she and Gemma were close and she viewed Gemma as a mother figure to an extent. However, after Tara left the club life and Charming, thereby hurting Jax and the family, Gemma held a deep resentment and grudge against her. So at the beginning of the series, she and Gemma, both strong women, started out on bad terms while also grudgingly respecting each other. After L.O.A.N.'s attack on Gemma, however, their relationship improved due to Tara's vow to keep the incident a secret from the rest of the club, including Jax, and her continued moral and medical support for Gemma. Tara became pregnant with Thomas sometime in season 2, although it was not shown when she found out and was not revealed until season 3. By the time Abel was kidnapped by Cameron Hayes at the end of season 2, Tara already knew she was pregnant. The kidnapping shook the whole family and club, especially Jax and Tara's relationship. Though, Tara continued to live in Charming with Jax, but their relationship was very strained. Early on in season 3, a devastated Jax, emotionally hurt her, slept with Ima, and tried pushing Tara away in a misguided effort to protect her. For a short time, Jax thought Tara was dead after she was abducted. Towards the end of season 3, they were able to reconcile after Tara and unborn baby Thomas' lives were in peril when Tara was abducted and assaulted by SAMCRO enemy Salazar. In the season 3 finale Tara was the one who found letters John Teller wrote before his death, expressing his fears and pain of living in Charming. At the end of one of the letters it is revealed that John was killed, allegedly, by Gemma and Clay. During Jax's 14 month prison term (in the space of time between season 3 and season 4), Tara was a single mother raising both Abel and Thomas, with help from Gemma. She continues practicing medicine and lives in Jax's house, where she is raising their boys.
Wendy Case (Drea de Matteo) is Jax Teller's ex-wife and the biological mother of his son, Abel Teller. Wendy intentionally became pregnant, in hopes that it would keep Jax with her. She is a drug addict who used methamphetamine during her pregnancy, which nearly killed Abel. He was born seriously premature with health problems. After learning the reasons for her grandson's birth defects, Gemma gives her drugs with the instructions to commit suicide via overdose. Gemma threatens that if Wendy does not obey, Gemma will use her ex-daughter-in-law's drug addiction to ensure Wendy never has any contact with Abel. Wendy goes into rehab and spends time in a sober living facility. She longed to reunite with Jax, believing that the stability of her family would assist her recovery. Gemma, desiring to destroy her son's relationship with Tara, promises to help Wendy reunite with Jax. After a rift develops between Tara and Jax and then the murder of Donna Winston, Jax and Wendy sleep together. She was last seen at Donna's funeral watching Tara kiss Jax, after which her whereabouts are unknown, presumably still in the sober living facility. She has never been involved with raising Abel and it was stated by Jax that she gives legal custody of Abel to Tara. She returns in season 4 and visits Tara in her hospital room. She reminds her that she is Abel's mother and while she may not have the right to raise him anymore, she has the right to know him. She later goes to Jax and Tara's house to see Abel. She finds Gemma in his room, and informs her that she has not only been sober for two years, but received her BA and is now a substance abuse councilor. She also informs Gemma that she realized she likes women. Gemma begrudgingly agrees to let Wendy see Abel, but under her terms.
Donna Lerner Winston (Sprague Grayden) was Opie's wife and the mother of his two children. She didn't trust SAMCRO after Opie served extensive jail time for the club. Donna and Opie went through a difficult time in their marriage and came close to separating but Donna had a change of heart after Opie was set up by ATF agent Stahl to look like an informant. Donna resolved her feelings and seemed okay with Opie being a member of SAMCRO. However the turnaround comes too late as Clay falls for Agent Stahl's deception. When Clay Morrow ordered Tig to kill Opie in "The Sleep of Babies" episode, Tig kills Donna by mistake. Opie finds out about Donna's murder towards the end of season two when Tig confesses to Opie out of guilt. In response, Opie beat Tig and then later held Stahl at gunpoint but showed mercy and let her live. Opie eventually exacts his revenge in the season 3 finale by murdering Stahl by shooting her in the head as she sat in her car. The last words Stahl heard from Opie were, "This is what she felt."
Luann Delaney (Dendrie Taylor) was Gemma's best friend and ran a pornography studio, having received financial backing from Big Otto. Luann was Big Otto's wife or, in the parlance of the club, old lady. Her date of birth was June 25, 1958.
In season 2, a law enforcement raid caused Luann to lose her studio and performers to a rival pornographer and Otto asked SAMCRO to help her. Jax helped get the performers back and sets up Luann in one of SAMCRO's warehouses thus giving SAMCRO a hand in her business. Despite Luann's protests, Clay gave Bobby a job as a bookkeeper in her company. Bobby discovers that Luann was skimming money from the business but, in order to keep him quiet, it was implied that she performed sexual favors for him. Luann Delaney was found beaten to death at the end of the season 2 episode "Potlatch." After her death, during episode 9 of season 2, Bobby told Jax, "I was tappin Luann." It is suspected that she was killed by Georgie Caruso (Tom Arnold), the rival pornographer. In season 4, the Assistant U.S. Attorney Lincoln Potter, posing as the Sheriff, informs Big Otto of Bobby's semen on Luann's corpse. Big Otto, in his grief, asks SAMCRO to find the killer to extract his vengeance. SAMCRO, catches Caruso, and he gives up, offering anything, to save his own life, and Clay decides that his business contacts (old Japanese money) are worth sparing his life. While Bobby visits Big Otto in prison and says that "they put him down".
Cherry (Taryn Manning) is a girl from Indian Hills, Nevada whose real name is Rita Zambell. After leaving her abusive husband and burning down their condo, she aligns herself with the Devil's Tribe (a friendly independent MC now "patched over" to the Sons of Anarchy) and calls herself Cherry (after her beloved dead dog), posing as a "hangaround." She takes an interest in Half-Sack when SAMCRO comes to visit but sleeps with Clay, who wants to punish Half-Sack for voicing his sexual attraction to Gemma. Cherry later comes to Charming looking for Half-Sack and begins dating him after gaining permission from Gemma and clearing up what happened between her and Clay at the Devil's Tribe patch over party. While investigating the club, Agent Stahl learns of Cherry's crimes in Nevada and tries to use the crimes as leverage to make her "rat out" SAMCRO. Jax breaks her out and helps her escape California after she makes love one last time to Half-Sack. In season three, Cherry is staying with McGee and his wife, working in their store in Belfast. After McGee's wife tells Cherry to contact Gemma, Cherry is heartbroken to hear of Half-Sack's death. She was the old lady of Liam O'Neill, Sgt. at Arms of the Belfast chapter before his death.
Mary Winston (Julie Ariola) is Piney Winston's ex-wife and the mother of Opie. She moved away from Charming and took Opie with her after divorcing Piney. However, she returns to temporarily look after her grandchildren when Opie is arrested. She is shown consoling the distraught Piney after Donna's murder.
In season 2, she takes a larger role by being the caretaker for her grandchildren, since Opie becomes emotionally distant after Donna's murder. However, this proves too much for her so she drops the kids off with Opie and takes all of her belongings and leaves Charming once again. Mary is last seen in the SAMCRO clubhouse, where all of the club members' relatives are staying for safety reasons. Mary has not made an appearance since episode The Culling
Lyla Dvorak Winston (Winter Ave Zoli) is a porn star employed by Luann Delaney and is introduced in season 2. She and Opie begin to grow close after they first meet. Like Opie, Lyla is a single parent and she helps him with his children. It is shown she might have a drug problem since Opie finds vials of cocaine in her car when she brings it in to be fixed. Later Opie has her contact her dealer to purchase some drugs to plant on someone. Opie's involvement with Lyla was not entirely welcome by some, particularly Gemma and Tara, who initially are unable to look past Lyla's profession. She's seen in the season finale with Opie and the rest of the club at the police station, waiting for word about Zobelle and Weston.
In season 3, it is implied that Lyla has retired from porn much to Opie's relief. When Henry Lin asks Clay to provide escorts in exchange for cash and weapons for a business party, Lyla rallies together her porn star friends. However, much to Opie's chagrin, she decides to also perform because she wants to help SAMCRO. At the party, Opie keeps his cool until he sees Lyla take a businessman to a back room and then he proceeds to start a fight. It is shown that Lyla and Tara have become friends, despite the rough start they got off to in season 2. When Lyla found out about Jax having sex with Ima after Tara caught them, she slaps Ima in the face. After SAMCRO goes to Belfast, Lyla tells Tara Knowles that she is pregnant with Opie's child and that she is secretly going to abort it. She explains that while she loves Opie, she is not ready for another child. She would rather continue her pornstar career while she can, instead of having another child. In the season 3 finale, Opie proposes to Lyla with his grandmother's ring and she says yes. Opie does not know about the abortion. In the beginning of season 4, she is still a porn star but is only involved in girl on girl. she is getting ready for the wedding. Opie tells her it is not too late to run. She tells him she is not running and that she is part of the family whether he likes it or not. It is hinted that Lyla may be pregnant again as Opie says that he is happy they are adding to the family. Later Lyla and Opie get married and they share a dance at the reception. Later in season four, while visiting Lyla's porn site for business with SAMCRO, Opie finds Lyla's birth control in her dressing room. Angered and seeking comfort, Opie turns to Lyla's co-star, Ima, for a one night stand that took place at the SAMCRO club house. The next morning, Lyla goes in search of her husband, who did not return home the night before she discovers Ima leaving the club house. The two "porn stars" exchange words and Ima pulls a gun on Lyla. This endangers everyone there including Gemma, Piney, Tara, and Jax and Tara's infant Thomas. Ima leaves without pulling the trigger and Lyla extremly upset. Later in the episode Lyla and Opie talk. Opie confesses to finding her birth control and Lyla confesses to having an abortion with his child a year earlier. Opie is upset and walks away stating that he would stay at the clubhouse and she needs to decide what she wants to do. Later Opie contacts her to find Georgie, where they have a brief talk, agreeing that their relationship cannot work so as long as Opie still thinks about Donna.
Fiona Larkin (Bellina Logan) is Chibs' estranged wife and is introduced in season 2. Fiona first appears at Chibs' bedside when he is hospitalized after nearly being killed by a car bomb. Fiona's presence instantly makes it clear to the Sons that Real IRA member, Jimmy O'Phelan, is in Charming and that Chibs' life is in danger. It is revealed that years before, Jimmy O'Phelan ran Chibs out of the Real IRA back in Belfast and subsequently married Fiona and raised Chibs' daughter Kerrianne. The reason for Chibs' expulsion from the Real IRA is yet to be revealed.
When SAMCRO arrives in Belfast, Chibs is finally able to reunite with his family. The Sons learn that Fiona and Kerrianne are now under constant protection by the Real IRA because of the threat Jimmy O'Phelan poses to their safety. In the season 3 finale, Chibs finally murders Jimmy, leaving him free to get his family back, but it is not yet known whether or not Fiona will move to California to be with Chibs, due to her IRA ties.
Gemma Morrow remarked that Fiona Larkin was one of only three women in the world that genuinely scared her.
Precious Ryan (Eileen Grubba) is Bobby's ex-wife. She still very much despises her former husband. Her current boyfriend, Sergio Coletti (Jeffrey Newman) is a bounty hunter, and he helped the club tracking down Cameron Hayes and Abel.
Abel Teller is the son of Jax Teller and Wendy Case. Wendy purposely got pregnant with Abel to try to hold onto Jax, however that did not work, and Jax was largely absent during the pregnancy. When the baby trap didn't get Jax to stay with Wendy, she began using drugs again. She was pregnant at the time and this caused Abel to be born approximately 2 1/2 to 3 months premature with cardiac and digestive system problems. It appeared that Abel was not going to make it. However, Tara saved Abel during surgery, and after a long period in the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Thomas Hospital, he was removed from the incubation chamber (in episode "The Pull"). Aside from some minor problems with formula, he appeared to be a happy and healthy baby. In the episode "The Sleep of Babies," Abel was finally released from the hospital and a welcome home party was held for him. In season 2, Abel's biological mother Wendy went to a sober living home and Abel was taken care of by Gemma, Tara and Jax. Gemma hires a nanny, 'Neeta, for extra help. In the season 2 finale, a grief-stricken and enraged Cameron Hayes burst into Jax and Tara's home to attempt to kill Tara and baby Abel. When Cameron was about to kill the baby, Halfsack and Tara ran to stop him. Halfsack saved Abel by being killed instead. At the time, Tara was secretly pregnant with Abel's younger brother, Thomas. Cameron kidnapped Abel and Jax and the others were in hot pursuit of Cameron. Cameron however managed to escape on a boat, leaving a devastated Jax screaming on the pier. Cameron fled to Ireland with the baby and during season 3, Jax and the club were in desperate search of the missing baby, fearing the worst, that perhaps he was even killed. Abel was in several places in Ireland, including an adoption facility somewhere in Belfast, Northern Ireland (as seen near the end of episode 1 of the 3rd season). Married couple Katey and Mark Petrie (played by Lilly McDowell and Matthew Alan) eventually adopt Abel. When Jax finally finds Abel, he watches Abel with his adoptive parents from a distance and has a mental conundrum about whether to retrieve his son or leave him to have a chance at living a normal, safe, and stable life away from the violence and death of his world. Jimmy O ultimately kills the Petries and kidnaps Abel to use as leverage to get out of Belfast. Unable to intervene, Jax finds Abel's beanie, with Clay taking it from him, saying "I'll give it back when we find him". In a Real IRA sanctioned swap, Jimmy later returns Abel to Jax in exchange for a new hostage, Father Kellan Ashby. Upon Jax's return to Charming, Gemma hosts a big breakfast, to celebrate both his safe return, and Tara's pregnancy. At the breakfast, Clay keeps his promise by putting the beanie on Abel's head. Abel is the older brother of Thomas. At the beginning of season 4, after the 14 month time jump between seasons, Abel is now a toddler. Since his father Jax was sent to prison, he has been cared for by his mother Tara, and grandmother Gemma. It is stated in an "appisode" that Wendy signed over full custodial rights to Tara. Abel is heard calling Tara "mommy" in season 4 episode 2. Jax has a large tattoo, "Abel", in honor of his son on his left chest area, near his heart.
Ellie & Kenny Winston
Ellie and Kenny Winston (Lela Jane Cortines and John Abendroth) are the daughter and son of Opie and Donna Winston. Following Donna's death, Opie has trouble coping with being a single parent, relying heavily on his mother Mary. When Lyla becomes part of Opie's life, the Winston family situation becomes much less strained.
Kerrianne Larkin-Telford (Q'orianka Kilcher) is the teenage daughter of Chibs Telford and Fiona Larkin, raised by Fiona and Jimmy O'Phelan. Growing up in Belfast with Fiona and Jimmy, Kerrianne is not very close to Chibs, although Chibs loves his daughter very much, referring to Fiona and Kerrianne as "my girls". She does grow closer to Chibs while he is in Belfast. In the episode "Turas" she hugs Chibs, tells him that she loves him, and calls him dad. In "Bainne" she is seen with the rest of the SAMCRO family celebrating Abel's safe return.
Dawn and Fawn Trager
Dawn Trager (Rachel Miner) and Fawn Teager are the daughters of Alex "Tig" Trager and he's ex-wife Colleen. Dawn appears in the episode "With An X". She came to Charming trying to con Tig into giving her $12,000. She claims her sister Fawn Trager is suffering from bulimia and needs rehab. When Gemma and Bobby find out that Fawn is alright, they warn Tig that Dawn is lying to him, but he gives his daughter the money anyway. Bobby tells Tig that would only make her come back back to ask for more money, to which Tig replies, "I know".
Thomas Teller is the son of Jax Teller and Tara Knowles. Younger brother of Abel Teller. Thomas is named after Jax's deceased brother and Gemma's second son. Tara became pregnant with Thomas sometime in season 2. In the season 2 finale, when grief-stricken and enraged Cameron Hayes burst into Jax and Tara's house to kill Tara and/or baby Abel, Tara was aware that she was pregnant by that point—although not shown on screen when she found out. Tara's pregnancy with Thomas is one of the extenuating circumstances that possibly contributed to Abel being kidnapped, due to Tara not wanting Cameron to harm or kill her—thus killing her baby. During season 3, pregnant Tara was put through the wringer, with being emotionally hurt and abandoned by Jax, and her grief and guilt over Abel's abduction. She was upset and assaulted several times over the course of the season. When she was abducted and held captive by Salazar and his girlfriend Louisa; she was struck and kicked hard in the abdomen. After Jax rescued Tara, they went to the hospital to see if the unborn baby had been harmed. Luckily, the baby was healthy. Jax and Tara watched the ultrasound and heard their baby's heartbeat. In the season finale, before events transpired and Jax and the others were hauled off to prison, Jax and Tara reconnected and Jax touched Tara's stomach, telling his son that he loved him. He said he had a feeling it was a boy. By the end of season 3, Tara was a little over 8 weeks pregnant. At the beginning of season 4, due to the 14 month time jump between seasons, baby Thomas is approximately 6 to 7 months old. Since Jax was sent to prison, Thomas and his older brother have been raised by Tara meanwhile as a single mother with added help from Gemma.
In seasons 3 and 4, due to the short length of the seasons, Tara was showing very little to none in her pregnancy with Thomas. However, in 1 special feature "appisode" scene, with Tara and Piney, we see a pregnant Tara 5 to 6 months along. Also, in another special "appisode" scene ("Second Son") with Tara and Gemma visiting Jax in prison, Tara had just given birth to Thomas and brought him to see his father. Jax meets Thomas and despite the harsh surroundings, they connect as a family in the moment. In honor of his son, Jax has a large tattoo of Thomas' name on his left forearm.
Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie) is the Chief of the Charming Police Department. He also owns Unser Shipping, a trucking company, and is not above using the SOA for protection and other questionable activities related to his business. He is an ally of Clay Morrow, a longtime resident of Charming, and cares for the town deeply. He seems to think the SOA is good for Charming, or at least a necessary evil. He is suffering from cancer, which is forcing him into retirement, something Clay Morrow does not want to see. In the episode "Hell Followed", it is revealed that Unser is married to a Native American woman when he confronts Darby at the jail house. He has two daughters and is a Vietnam veteran who served (according to his wall decorations) in the 1st Armored Division. His use of marijuana for relief of cancer pain has been revealed recently as well. He has known Gemma from the time she was twelve years old as she has a long history of clashing with the law. He cares about Gemma in a fatherly fashion. (Callie was promoted to the main cast in the third season.)
David Hale (Taylor Sheridan) was the Deputy Chief of the Charming Police Department. Chief Unser nicknamed him "Captain America" for his black and white views and squeaky clean image (prior to his involvement with L.O.A.N. and sexual encounter with an ATF agent), adherence to the law and, possibly, because of his square-jawed all-American looks. He is a native of Charming, California, who knew of SAMCRO while he was growing up and who delivered newspapers to the Teller household. His father is a county judge and a very powerful and wealthy man. David also has an older brother, Jacob, Jr. He is next in line for the chief job once Wayne Unser retires. Unlike Unser, Hale wishes to purge the town of SAMCRO upon becoming police chief. Hale is killed in the Season 3 premiere when he is hit by a van that has just opened fire on the crowd in front of Half Sack's funeral.
Agent June Stahl
Agent June Stahl (Ally Walker) was an ATF agent investigating the club's involvement in arms trafficking after Deputy Chief Hale calls in the ATF in retaliation because Chief Unser did not retire as previously expected. She is obsessed with proving to all that she is very tough. She unnerves her male fellow law enforcement officers with her swaggering arrogance and tendency to regard them as sex objects, exhibiting a role reversal and typically masculine attitude. Stahl by all rights is a sociopath. She tends to use others to satisfy her own needs and doesn't care who gets hurt in the process, unlike SAMCRO who tries their best to keep innocent people out of the crossfires. Stahl has an affair with Deputy Chief David Hale during her investigation of SAMCRO, but calls off the investigation and is shunned by Hale when she inadvertently causes the murder of Donna Winston.
Stahl made a deal with Jax in season 3 to drop his mother's murder charges and reduce the club's prison time for weapons charges. She betrays Jax and reveals to the club that he is an informant. Although Clay and the others swear to kill Jax, it is revealed that the club was in on the plan the whole time. Chief Wayne Unser helped the Sons get her and Jimmy O away from the rest of the ATF, so they could exact revenge. Chibs gave Jimmy a Glasgow smile and then stabbed him to death. Opie put Stahl in her vehicle and shot her in the back of the head, reenacting the way in which his wife Donna was killed. He then ripped up Jax's informant documents and Chibs painted a Real IRA sign in Jimmy's blood on the window of Stahl's vehicle, making it look like the Real IRA were responsible for the ambush and killing Stahl.
Lieutenant Eli Roosevelt
Lieutenant Eli Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar) is a member of the San Joaquin Sheriff's Department and the head of Charming's law enforcement following the dissolution of Charming Police Department. Prior to his assignment in Charming, he spent fifteen years in Oakland working as part of an anti-gang task force. He is a strict, no-nonsense officer, confronting the Sons of Anarchy upon their release from prison and stating that any cuts worn in public by members on parole would be confiscated. He is recruited into AUSA Potter's task force to help bring down the gunrunning operation. He's known to be an uncorruptable officer and has a strong sense of moral justice, as he grows exponentially disguisted at Lincoln Potter's sadist and manipulative ways to corner the Sons of Anarchy mostly Juice, to whom he slowly grows to care.
Lincoln "Linc" Potter (Ray McKinnon) is an Assistant U.S. Attorney operating out of Charming. He is currently the head of a joint agency task force targeting the Sons of Anarchy's arms trafficking business under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. As part of his investigation, he planted an undercover FBI agent in Victor Putlova's Russian mob, who was executed along with several Russian gangsters by SAMCRO (unaware of his FBI connection) as retaliation for the attempted murder of Jax. He serves as the main antagonist of Season 4. As the "successor" of previous Law Enforcement antagonist June Stahl, he is shown to also resort to any ways to achieve his goals, no matter how dirty. He is extremely manipulative, cornering Juice at the expense of threating the club to reveal his African American origins, this stages a major disaster that gets Miles a recent patched member killed, and later stages Juice to be busted for drug possession, to further scare him, taking a sadistic pleasure in Juice predicament of being between betraying the club or being arrested. He also tries to coerce Otto into betraying the club using Luann and the fact Bobby slept with her before her death, further provoking him with statistics that state that Bobby is the potential murderer, even going as far as to reveal that Bobby lied to him by showing photos that Carusso who was presumed to be the culprit was alive and had an alibi, and does so trying to act sympathetic of him, and of what he has lost because of the club. Despite his ruthlessness he's a rather eccentric, he was shown once dancing and singing floating  above a table.
Agent Josh Kohn
Agent Joshua "Josh" Kohn (Jay Karnes) was a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent pretending to investigate SAMCRO. He and Dr. Tara Knowles dated in Chicago until he became threatening and she obtained a restraining order against him. Recently, due to his persistent stalking of Tara and subtle threats against Abel, Jax hunted him down at Floyd's barber shop and beat him up. Kohn was arrested and sent back to Chicago to face charges. However, he returned, held Tara captive and tried to rape her. Tara was able to get his gun and shoot him in the stomach and then called Jax for help. Shortly after Jax arrived at her house, Kohn shouted insults at Tara. Jax took the gun from Tara and shot Kohn in the head. Jax later took Kohn's body to the desert and burned it. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat called the character "terrifically creepy."
Victor "Vic" Trammel (Glenn Plummer) is the local Sheriff, and an ally of the SAMCRO. A close friend of his is murdered by survivalists using guns provided by the Sons, having Vic seriously questioning his ties to the club. His status is currently unknown, following him being shot during a drug possession arrest in season 2.
Agent Amy Tyler
Amy Tyler (Pamela J. Gray) was an ATF agent who was both June Stahl's professional and personal partner during the third season. She was unaware of Stahl's involvement in Gemma's murder charges and was very shocked when Gemma claims Tyler to have been the ATF agent who was present in Edmond Hayes' home during the murders. After the rescue of Tara Knowles, Tyler was killed by Agent Stahl and then framed for the murder of Edmond Hayes.
Agent Kessler (David Rees Snell) is an FBI Agent assigned to investigating the SAMCRO's arms trafficking business. He works closely with Assistant US Attorney Lincoln Potter.
Agent Smith (Derwin Jordan) is Agent Stahl's ATF partner during the first season.
Minor Charming PD officers
Additional members of the Charming Police Department appears from time to time. Most notably is Officer Candy Eglee (Marya Delver), who has been a member of Charming PD since Season One. She is shown to be sympathetic towards SAMCRO and her boss Chief Wayne Unser. Also recurring are Officer Craft (Adrian La Tourelle), who appears during the first two seasons, and Officer Fain (Pablo Espinosa), appearing throughout Season One.
Cameron Hayes (Jamie McShane) was McKeavey's cousin and also a member of the Real IRA. He becomes SAMCRO's new contact and gun runner after McKeavey's death. Cameron gave back the $200,000 SAMCRO paid for a gun shipment in addition to a month of free guns for killing Oakland Port Authority Commissioner Brenan Hefner. Hayes was wanted on four continents. After being shot during an attempt on Clay's life, Tara patched Cameron back up and Happy smuggled him, along with Cherry, into Canada.
Hayes returned in season 2 as SAMCRO's new firearm supplier. He and his partner/son Edmond Hayes made a deal to exclusively sell rifles to SAMCRO but later break this deal by cutting their supply to SAMCRO and secretly selling to L.O.A.N., all without the authorization of Real IRA leader Jimmy O'Phelan. After Edmond is captured by the ATF, Cameron evaded the authorities while still dealing guns to the Aryans from a speedboat docked in Charming.
After SAMCRO discovered the Hayes' betrayal and the ATF's active investigation of the Real IRA by ATF Agent Stahl, they informed O'Phelan who promised to rectify the situation. SAMCRO also used the information to their advantage by framing Cameron and his son as the source of leaks to the ATF about O'Phelan's operations when the source was really SAMCRO's own member Chibs who was coerced by Stahl.
In the second season finale, Edmond, working against his will for the ATF, was ordered by Cameron to kill Stahl to re-prove their loyalty to the True IRA. The plan backfired when it was revealed that Stahl had anticipated this and loaded Edmond's gun with blanks. When Edmond hits her and attempts to flee her custody, Stahl shoots him to death. While eavesdropping on the ATF's radio traffic, Cameron finds out about his son's death but hears Stahl falsely report Gemma Teller as the shooter, prompting Cameron to fly into a grievous rage against SAMCRO. Cameron tailed Half-Sack back to Jax's house where he confronted Tara and Half-Sack at gunpoint before threatening to kill Jax's infant son, Abel, with a kitchen knife. When Half-Sack tried to stop him Cameron stabbed him to death instead. Cameron then tied up Tara and kidnapped Abel. The finale ended with Cameron taking Abel aboard his speedboat and fleeing Charming while Jax and Clay helplessly watched from the docks.
In the season three premiere, SAMCRO finds out that Cameron has had a forger make him a fake passport and I.D. and that he has sold his boat to a street gang. He was then seen with Abel in Belfast, Northern Ireland, visiting a woman who does not seem happy to see him. In the second episode of that season he is strangled to death by members of the Real IRA, in Belfast, in an attempt to spare him a painful death and salvage their relationship with SAMCRO.
Edmond Hayes (Callard Harris) was Cameron Hayes' son and business partner. Throughout the second season he is shown to have as much clout in the business as his father, often making deals/judgment calls on his own. When Cameron started dealing with L.O.A.N., Edmond began a sexual relationship with Polly Zobelle. Their relationship deepened into love as time went on. In the episode "Balm", Edmond is arrested by the ATF based on information supplied by Chibs. In the season 2 finale, Edmond made contact with his father who told him he must kill Agent Stahl to prove his loyalty to the True IRA. Edmond retrieved a hidden gun in his home but couldn't bring himself to kill Stahl. Stahl revealed that the gun was loaded with blanks and that the ATF had known about Cameron's plan all along. Feeling like a fool, Edmond punched Stahl and attempted to escape but Stahl was able to fire several shots from her own sidearm and killed Edmond. Stahl then framed Gemma for Edmond and Polly Zobelle's murders.
Michael McKeavey (Kevin Chapman) was a powerful member of the True IRA who served as SAMCRO's contact, and helped sell illegal weapons through the Sons of Anarchy. His date of birth was April 1, 1966. McKeavey was an old friend to SAMCRO members, including Clay and Piney. McKeavey went on an extended trip up and down the coast, while SAMCRO struggled to put together the $200,000 to pay for the latest weapons shipment. When McKeavey returned, he found himself ambushed by Oakland Port Commissioner Brenan Hefner and his port thugs. Hefner tried to get him to triple his pay-off to let McKeavey's weapon shipment through. The deal went bad, with McKeavey getting angry and scaring Hefner into having his thugs beat and break McKeavey's neck and left him for dead. Hefner was later killed in revenge by SAMCRO.
James "Jimmy O" O'Phelan
James O'Phelan (Titus Welliver), better known as "Jimmy O", was the leader of the Real IRA group who sell guns to SAMCRO. Jimmy O made his first appearance in season 2 to personally rectify the Hayes' betrayal of SAMCRO since the Real IRA has long been dependent on the Sons Of Anarchy's Belfast chapter. He serves as the main antagonist of season 3.
O'Phelan also shares a long history with Chibs as it was he who kicked Chibs out of the Real IRA and banished him from Ireland. He then married Chibs' wife Fiona and adopted his daughter Kerrianne. Jimmy is also responsible for the scars on Chibs' face. When Jimmy O arrives in Charming to repair the Real IRA's relationship with SAMCRO, he personally meets with Chibs and demands that he set up a meeting with Clay. Chibs initially refuses because of his personal feelings for Jimmy even though the meeting is in the club's best interest. Then, Jimmy O threatens Fiona's life and insinuates that he has taken a sexual interest in Chibs' daughter. It is unlikely that he would carry out the threat as his relationship with Fiona seems good, on the surface at least. Chibs, however, is blinded by anger and this is used by Agent Stahl to talk Chibs into ratting out the True IRA. Chibs gives up the info about the safehouse. O'Phelan later avoids capture by the ATF and gives SAMCRO the guns meant for L.O.A.N. for free to make up for Cameron and Edmond's betrayal.
In season 3, Jimmy finds out the truth about Abel's whereabouts, but he feeds Jax misinformation to try and keep up the dealings between the True IRA and SAMCRO. He is currently in Belfast, where he is concocting a plan to throw SAMCRO off of Abel's trail. In "Lochan Mor", Father Kellan Ashby meets with Jax Teller and tells him that Jimmy has gone rogue from the Real IRA and is trying to destroy the relationship between the True IRA and the SOA. Ashby promises to give Abel back to Jax, if Jax assassinates Jimmy.
Jimmy tries to have Liam O'Neil, Sergeant at Arms of SAMBEL, kill SAMCRO by blowing up a gun shipment that the SOA are protecting. While all of this is happening, Jimmy is at the home of Maureen Ashbey trying to take back Fiona and Kerrianne. He ends up killing one of the Casey brothers which he has no problem with. But is stopped by Gemma and Fiona who over power him and right hand man. Gemma is close to killing him before Fiona stops her. Fiona threatens that if Jimmy came near her or Kerrianne again she would kill him herself. After Liam O'Neill botches the killing of SAMCRO, Jimmy happens to come across SAMCRO torturing O'Neill. He and his men plan to assault and kill the bikers, but are caught in a trap that sees Jimmy and his second in command, Donny, barely escape with their lives. Jimmy O and Donny then kidnap and torture Sean Casey for information about Abel Teller's whereabouts. Jimmy executes Sean as a message to the True IRA. He and Donny kill the Irish couple that has Abel and then use the infant as leverage to ensure safe passage out of Ireland and back to California where Jimmy will make contact with the Russian mafia. In a swap at a dock, Jimmy and Donny give Abel back to Jax, but they take Father Kellan Ashby as their new hostage.
Back in California, Jimmy attempts to buy safe passage to South America via the Russian mafia. However, his Russian connection, Victor Putlova, changes his deal with Jimmy and demands more money and a bigger discount on weapons in exchange for smuggling Jimmy out of the United States. Not left with much of a choice, Jimmy's man Donny retrieves $712,000 to pay the Russians in advance.
In the Season 3 finale, Jimmy is betrayed by the Russians and given up to SAMCRO, however he is taken into custody by the ATF shortly after. He is then recaptured by SAMCRO and then stabbed to death by Chibs Telford, but not before Chibs gives Jimmy a Glasgow Smile similar to the one Jimmy gave Chibs.
Luke Moran (Kevin P. Kearns) is Jimmy O's second in command in the USA and he is glad to follow his boss' every order. When Jax finds out that Jimmy has been lying to him about Abel's whereabouts, he kidnaps Luke and delivers him to Agent June Stahl as part of his deal with her.
Father Kellan Ashby
Father Kellan Ashby (James Cosmo) is the consigliere of the Real IRA in Belfast. Kellan has a tendency to play God on some occasions despite the fact that he is as much a criminal as anyone else. Piney Winston states that while Ashby can't make any direct decisions for the True IRA, his input is highly valued. When his cousin Cameron Hayes returns to Belfast, Ashby is immediately wary because of the trouble Cameron brewed up in the United States with SAMCRO. After conversing with the True IRA leaders, he approves of the killing of Cameron in his own church. He takes Abel from his sister Maureen Ashby and places him in a foster care facility. Ashby has voiced disagreement with Jimmy O's methods, and appears to be manipulating SAMCRO against Jimmy. When Ashby meets Jax, he promises to return Abel to him if Jax assassinates Jimmy O. When Jax gives Ashby the evidence that proves Jimmy O was behind the explosion that killed members of the SOA and the IRA, Ashby doesn't give Jax Abel's whereabouts, only saying that Jaxes' father, John Teller, didn't want Jax to become part of SAMCRO so he decides to "save" Abel by putting him up for adoption. Jax becomes angry and tries to attack Ashby only for Ashby to throw Jax across the table. However, Jax gets the upper hand and threatens to kill Sean Casey, which makes Kellan reveal Abel's location. After Jimmy O'Phelan kidnaps Abel, Kellan converses with the IRA council and ultimately sacrifices himself as a hostage in exchange for Jimmy giving Abel back to Jax Teller. Jax tells Kellan during the exchange that Jimmy would likely kill him before ever reaching his destination. Kellan's death is technically conjecture from Jax's statement, however, as Kellan's final fate is neither shown nor directly confirmed.
Maureen Ashby (Paula Malcomson) is the widow of Keith McGee. She has ties to the SOA through her late husband and ties to the True IRA through her older brother, Father Kellan Ashby. Maureen initially took care of Abel before he was taken away by her brother. She has a bad conscience about the whole ordeal and she eventually is able to contact Gemma and tell her the whereabouts of her grandson. She had an affair with John Teller in the late 1980s and the union produced a daughter named Trinity. She runs a convenience store in Belfast, where she employs Cherry. When Gemma arrives in Belfast with the rest of SAMCRO, she was a little surprised to see her. Maureen told Gemma they should continue keeping the secret about Trinity being John's daughter, unaware that Jax and Trinity may be attracted to each other. When Jax and Trinity nearly have sex, Maureen, distraught over Keith McGee's death, is finally forced to tell Trinity the truth about her father. When SAMCRO saves Abel and prepares to leave Belfast to return to Charming, Maureen secretly puts some of John Teller's letters into Jax's rucksack.
Trinity Ashby (Zoe Boyle) is Maureen Ashby's adult daughter and McGee's stepdaughter. Her mother Maureen states that she was 18 when she gave birth to Trinity. She is unaware that John Teller, the founder of the Sons of Anarchy, was her real father. Maureen had told Trinity that her father was a soldier who died in Lebanon. She takes an instant liking to Jax when he arrives in Belfast, both unaware that they are half-siblings. After McGee's death, Jax tries to comfort Trinity and the two nearly have sex in the Ashby convenience store, but are interrupted by Gemma and Maureen. Trinity is heart-broken when her mother finally reveals to her that her father was actually John Teller, rather than a heroic soldier who was killed in battle. Trinity becomes quite distraught, but Jax is able to cheer her up and she motivates him to get her nephew Abel back.
Sean & Michael Casey
Brothers Sean and Michael Casey (Dan Hildebrand and Glenn Keogh) were members of the Real IRA in Belfast, and very close to father Kellan - Fiona Larkin describes them as "being like sons to him". Following Father Ashby's order, they kill Cameron Hayes, and dispose of his body. Michael is executed by Jimmy O, who attacks Maureen Ashby's home when the SOA are on a protection run, in the episode "Turas." Sean is shown to be adept in the art of torture when he uses various tools to extract information from Liam O'Neill. After Father Ashby reneges on his deal and tells Jax that Abel has been adopted, Jax stabs and threatens to kill Sean to make Kellan tell him where Abel is. Sean is kidnapped and tortured by Jimmy O'Phelan for information about Abel Teller and then executed.
Brogan, Dooley & Roarke
Declan Brogan (Bart McCarthy), Peter Dooley (Paul Collins) and Brendan Roarke (Bob McCracken) are the council of the Real IRA in Belfast. First seen thanking SAMCRO for proving Jimmy O to have gone rogue, they later propose developing the relationship between the Sons and True IRA even further. According to Clay, they are the "Irish Kings, the Godfathers of the Tru IRA" meaning they run the entire Real IRA including the gun running. In the season 3 finale, Stahl pressured Jax for information on the identities of the council to complete SAMCRO's deal for short prison time, and Jax gave in, only for SAMCRO to betray Stahl after the deal went through, and kill her and Jimmy O and destroy the information Jax gave them, ensuring the Real IRA's safety. For killing Jimmy O, The Real IRA gace SAMCRO a whole new caliber of weapons, including AR-15s, RPGs, FN-57s, SIG 551s, and MP-5s.
Donny (Joel Tobeck) is Jimmy's closest man in Belfast. He is a man of reason that tries to keep Jimmy's wild tendencies under control. He successfully tortures Sean Casey for information about Abel Teller. When Jimmy goes rogue and the SAMCRO makes a deal with the True IRA to kill him, Donny remains Jimmy's only confidant. He is eventually killed by the Russians in the Season 3 finale.
Rival MC members
Marcus Alvarez (Emilio Rivera) is the president of the Mayans MC, an Oakland-based rival motorcycle club that has allied itself with the Nordics in order to break SAMCRO's iron-fisted control over Charming. He and the Mayans are bitter rivals with the Niners gang, whom SAMCRO supplies guns to, thus resulting in an increasingly bitter rivalry with the Sons. Although Alvarez agreed to a truce with SAMCRO, it has since been broken. Alvarez had secret gun and drug dealings with Zobelle and he and the Mayans tried to safely smuggle Zobelle out of Charming but were ambushed by the Sons. Clay's hatred for Zobelle and desire to kill him allowed the Mayans to get away.
Esai Alvarez (Kevin Alejandro) was a member of the Mayans MC and the son of Marcus Alvarez. Marcus selected his son to perform hits on both the Nords' leader Ernest Darby and SAMCRO leader Clay Morrow but Esai and his men botched both hits. Esai was killed by SAMCRO member Happy who stabbed him in the back of the head with an icepick. Marcus sanctioned the hit on his son in a jailhouse deal with Clay in exchange for SAMCRO selling guns to the Mayans.
Hector Salazar (Jose Pablo Cantillo) was the former president of the Lodi chapter of the Calaveras MC, a low-ranking club that did dirty work for the Mayans. The Calveras performed the drive-by at Half-Sack's funeral. After botching several jobs and killing a member of the friendly Grim Bastards MC, he was stripped of his title and kicked out of his own club by Marcus Alvarez. He and his girlfriend Louisa then began stalking Tara Knowles. Jacob Hale, Jr. takes advantage of Salazar's hatred of SAMCRO and pays him to rough up a gym owner who is loyal to SAMCRO. Hector takes it too far and inflicts mortal wounds that eventually kill the old man. Salazar then blackmails Hale for information about Tara. He and Louisa kidnap Tara and hospital administrator Margaret Murphy. They demand that in exchange for the women's release, SAMCRO must kill Mayans MC leader Marcus Alvarez and retrieve $250,000 from Alvarez's home safe. Alvarez plays dead for 24 hours and the ATF supplies the money, but at the drop-point a mishap spooks Salazar and he flees. Meanwhile, Tara is able to trick Louisa and slit her throat with a piece of broken glass. When Hector returns to his home, Tara bargains for Margaret's release in exchange for trying to save the mortally-wounded Louisa. Louisa bleeds to death during the ride to the hospital and Hector goes into a rage, killing an innocent woman and stealing her car. He takes Tara to Jacob Hale, Jr.'s office where he takes Hale hostage as well and then initiates a stand-off with police. Hector demands free passage to Mexico in exchange for his hostages. He is able to convince Jax Teller to takes Tara's place as a hostage, but he secretly plans to sabotage the deal and kill Tara in front of Jax. During a scuffle, Hale is able to stab Salazar with a pen and he tries to escape. Jax is able to corner Hector in a dead end where he offers to not kill the former Calaveras leader in exchange for his testimony against corrupt Jacob Hale. Hector agrees and puts down his weapon, but Jax reneges and stabs Hector in the chest and was forced to look into Jax's eyes as he died.
Roscoe (Joseph Julian Soria) is a member of the Calaveras MC Lodi chapter. He is appointed the new president by Marcus Alvarez, following the removal of Hector Salazar.
T.O. Cross (Michael Beach) is the President of the Grim Bastards MC. He is a good friend of Clay Morrow and SAMCRO. His club is chosen to provide security for Mayan drug shipments after SAMCRO makes a deal with the Mayans MC. He takes it hard when he finds his Vice President and childhood friend; Lander Jackson, murdered by the Calaveras MC. T.O. brought SAMCRO into the situation and demanded payback on the Calaveras, but Clay was able to calm him and, with approval from Alvarez and the Mayans, T.O. ultimately avenged his friend by killing his assassin, the Calaveras' Sgt-At-Arms, Edgar.
Lander Jackson (Marcello Thedford) was the Vice President of the Grim Bastards MC. He was T.O.'s childhood friend, having known him since T.O. was four years old. He was brutally killed by Edgar; the Sgt-At-Arms of the rivaling Calaveras MC. T.O. later killed Edgar in revenge.
Ethan Zobelle (Adam Arkin) is the head of the League of American Nationalists ("L.O.A.N."), a white separatist gang who desires to gain a foothold in Charming and force SAMCRO out. At the beginning of season 2, Zobelle moved into Charming and presented himself to the townspeople and local law enforcement as the owner of the newly-opened Impeccable Smokes cigar shop on the town's Main Street. Throughout season 2, Zobelle and his henchman made several more attempts to remove SAMCRO from Charming but all were relatively unsuccessful.
In the season 2 finale, it was revealed that Zobelle was a longtime F.B.I. informant so he and his daughter Polly were set free. With protection provided by the Mayans, Zobelle was escorted to his cigar shop where he and his daughter waited for an opportunity to flee Charming to avoid SAMCRO's wrath. Polly left to say goodbye to Edmond Hayes but, when she didn't return, Zobelle reluctantly left her behind. SAMCRO ambushed the Mayan convoy but Zobelle escaped, seeking refuge in a deli occupied by school children. He attempted to call Hale for assistance but Hale brushed him off and merely informed him of Polly's death. Zobelle's life was miraculously spared when a more pending issue caused the Sons to depart. He was last seen booking a flight out of Charming in an attempt to escape to Budapest.
Polly Zobelle (Sarah Jones) was the scheming daughter and accomplice of Ethan Zobelle. She was the one who initially tricked and subdued Gemma prior to her rape; she also rigged the car bomb which nearly killed Chibs. Deputy Hale extorted her to get information about her father's whereabouts but she fed him partially false information which had extreme repercussions for SAMCRO. Polly used her beauty and attractiveness to seduce Edmond Hayes, engaging in an affair with him. Although it initially appeared that Polly's motive was to secure the Real IRA's gun connection for L.O.A.N., it was later revealed that Polly's interest in Edmond was genuine and that her father did not entirely approve of the affair. Polly and her father were later arrested for possession of narcotics, a crime which her father alerted Deputy Chief Hale to in order to escape an attack from SAMCRO. In the season 2 finale, Polly and her father were released from police custody due to her father's F.B.I. informant status. Before fleeing Charming, she went to say goodbye to Edmond Hayes but found him shot to death in his home. She drew her gun after hearing a noise made by Agent Stahl who was hiding in the next room but coincidentally Gemma Teller, who had been following Polly, snuck in the front door at the same time. Gemma told Polly to put down her gun but Polly pointed the gun at Gemma and Gemma shot her dead. Then Stahl came out of hiding and framed Gemma for the murder of Edmond and Polly but let her escape out the back door, allowing Gemma to later get a ride out-of-town with Unser to go into hiding. In Season 3, Polly's murder is later ruled as self-defense, as she had a gun in her hand when she hit the floor.
A.J. Weston (Henry Rollins) was the muscle, or street leader, of the League of American Nationalists (also known as "L.O.A.N."), a white separatist gang trying to gain control in Charming and force SAMCRO out. Weston is an extremely violent ex-convict who carries out the brutal attacks on SAMCRO orchestrated by the L.O.A.N. commander, Ethan Zobelle. Weston's direct, and die-hard, connection to the Aryan Brotherhood makes him dangerous since he can provide manpower to his gang to sell weapons and drugs to the residents of Charming (SAMCRO disdains hard drugs and protects their town from drug dealers). Weston is the father of two sons, 10-year-old Cliff (Aaron Refvem) and 6-year-old Duke (Trenton Rogers), and has a number of tattoos including an Algiz just below his neck which is visible through the open collar of his shirts. He and several other men, while wearing white masks, raped Gemma Teller in a warehouse to strike back at Clay for refusing to stop his gun dealings with minorities. Gemma realized that A.J. was the leader of the group of men who attacked her after recognizing his Algiz tattoo. He was later seen at a church meeting run by L.O.A.N. There the group laid a trap for SAMCRO, mistakenly believing this was their headquarters, and with intent to kill Zobelle. As the Sons of Anarchy stormed into the church, Zobelle gave a signal and Weston opened fire on SAMCRO with a concealed weapon, making it look on camera like the Sons shot first. As church goers fled in a panic, Weston and Zobelle escaped the SAMCRO assailants and watched as they were cuffed and taken away by the police.
Although the previously elusive Weston was proving difficult for the Sons to kill, things unraveled for Weston late in season 2 when SAMCRO revealed to him that Zobelle was secretly dealing heroin with the Mayans. After finding out the truth and feeling betrayed, he killed Ule and confronted Zobelle. Jax had child services take Weston's children away from him and upon learning this, Weston challenged Jax to a fight to death out in the forest. At the showdown, A.J. and his Aryan brothers attempted to fight dirty but were overwhelmed by SAMCRO who had secretly enlisted the help of the Niners and the Triads. Charming police scared off most of the gang members before anyone was killed, granted it was also after SAMCRO began to take over the fight and Jax was on the verge of killing Weston when Deputy Chief Hale arrested Weston on the charge of arson for burning down Luann's porn studio Cara Cara. It was ambiguous whether or not Weston killed Ernest Darby before he burned down the studio.
In the season 2 finale, A.J. Weston was released from police custody due to an unusable testimony from two-finger Chucky who is a felon. Jax, Opie and Chibs were able to track Weston down and corner him and his youngest son in the bathroom of a tattoo parlor. Seeing the writing on the wall, Weston's last request was that his son not see what was about to happen to him. After bidding his son farewell, Weston warned his son never to talk about what happened with anyone. As his son left, Weston entered one of the bathroom stalls and Jax executed him with a silenced pistol. Jax then left his dead body in the stall.
Several of Henry Rollins' signature tattoos are visible in Sons of Anarchy including the infamous Black Flag "bars."
Ule (Jason Matthew Smith) was member of the League of American Nationals (L.O.A.N.). He had an antagonistic and distrustful relationship with A.J. Weston, feeling that as Zobelle's righthand man, Weston's ardent white supremacist beliefs are not allowing L.O.A.N. to broaden their horizons. Gradually, Ule was taking Weston's place in L.O.A.N.'s covert activities with the Mayans. When A.J. Weston found out about the drug trade with the Mayans, he killed the female heroin cookers and executed Ule.
Ernest Darby (Mitch Pileggi) is the head of the Nordics (also known as "Nords"), a white supremacist gang mainly involved in meth trafficking. In season 1, he attempts to form a deal with the Mayans but is later set up by members of the Mayans who try to kill him but are unsuccessful. In season 2, Darby forms an alliance with L.O.A.N., although he is not as strict in his racial beliefs (for example, Darby employees non-whites in his shop) as L.O.A.N. claims to be and this is met with disdain by A.J. Weston. Later, Darby is double-crossed and left to die by A.J. Weston and his crew while burning down the Cara Cara porn studio. At the end of season 2, his fate was still unknown. In the episode "The Push" in Season 3, it is revealed that Darby had survived the fire but his gang was left in ruins. While receiving treatment at a clinic, he observes Jax and Tara selling prescription medication to one of the clinic doctors. Mistakenly believing that SAMCRO has moved into the business of dealing painkillers (Jax and Tara were actually selling HIV medication) and desiring revenge against SAMCRO, whom he blames for his woes, he informs Jacob Hale of what he has seen.
Laroy Wayne (Tory Kittles) is SAMCRO's contact in the One Niners street gang. Laroy buys weapons from SAMCRO. He is often in the company of a man with a burned face called Gill (E.R. Ruiz), possibly hes second in command. The fictional One Niners gang also appeared in The Shield. It is unclear whether or not SAMCRO is still allied with the One Niners due to Laroy's double-crossing in a deal to eliminate some of the Mayans including Marcus Alvarez. This is cleared up in season 2 where it is made clear that Laroy and the Sons are still allied and the Mayans are not. Laroy is present at Opie's wedding in the start of season 4, where it is revealed the Niners continue to purchase weapons from the Sons.
Henry Lin (Chinese: 亨利林; played by Kenneth Choi) is the Chinese-American leader of a San Francisco-based Triad. His gang was after a man named Chuck who was a bookkeeper for their illegal businesses but eventually stole from them. However, Chuck was being protected by SAMCRO. Lin and Clay Morrow eventually came to an agreement over this - SAMCRO handed Chuck over and the Triad paid SAMCRO in cash. Lin later traded Chuck back to SAMCRO in negotiations to get new guns from Clay. Lin is likely the one who chopped off most of Chuck's fingers, leaving just one finger on each hand. Lin met with Clay and told him that he needed guns and would pay double. In the episode "Fa Guan," Lin makes a deal with Clay - if Clay can get a case thrown out, Lin would open a pipeline for him.
Victor Putlova (Keith Szarabajka) handles the dealing of the Russian Mob in California. An old acquaintance of Jimmy O's, Putlova is hired by Jimmy to help him escape the Real IRA and SAMCRO. However - he betrays Jimmy and makes a deal with SAMCRO to hand over Jimmy in exchange for 2 million dollars. Putlova also had Jimmy O's closest man, Donny, killed. After the exchange is made, a furious Putlova realizes that the money is fake. He and his men then attempt to give chase to SAMCRO, but to no avail. He tries to get revenge for the incident when he has one of his lieutenants try to kill Jax in prison but this does not succeed. In season 4 Clay, Opie and Jax sit down with Putlova and a new deal is worked out wiith everything seeming to be ok, with Jax saying that the stabbing was "just business". Putlova is even seen attending Opie's wedding and even gives Opie a large caliber weapon that pierces kevlar as a wedding present.However, when Clay tests the gun out he and Tig shoot Putlova's bodyguards and Jax stabs Putlova to death as payback for trying to kill him in prison, repeating the words "its just business" to Putlova as he dies. His body is then dumped in the new Charming development set up by Jacob Hale.
Romero 'Romeo' Parada (Danny Trejo) is a high ranking member of the Jose Galindo drug cartel, who has connections to Marcus Alvarez and the Mayans. His subordinates in dealings with SAMCRO and the Mayans are Luis Torres (Benito Martinez) and Santo Rivera (Senen Reyes), and both of them were once under his command in the Mexican Special Forces. In season four it was revealed that Clay orchestrated a deal with the cartel to protect SAMCRO from Russian retaliation in Stockton. Parada enters into business with the Sons to purchase a high volume of illegal arms weapons to fight with the rival Sonora based Lobo Sonora cartel, with the caveat that the Sons also need to assist in carrying amounts of cocaine through Northern California. He later turns up to save Jax and Opie from Russian retaliation, reinforcing that the cartel will provide the Sons with additional support. He appears later to provide SAMCRO with 30 bricks of cocaine, which one would be taken by Juice staging a major disaster that got Miles killed. After confirming his load was intact, he would be contacted by Clay for support to order a hit on Tara, due to the letters that state Clay's involvement in John Teller's murder.
Lobo Sonora is the leader of the Sonora Drug Cartel who is the rival of the Gallindo Cartel. Although he has yet to physically appear in the series, he serves as one of the main antagonists of season 4. He's known to be an extremelly ruthless individual who will resort to any sort of violence possible to intimidate and kill his foes. During the 7th episode of the 4th season, he is known to have forced a family of Mexican immigrants from Sonora to drive an attack against Marcus Alvarez in one of his drug labs, by threatening to kill their family in Sonora if they did not comply. He's described by Romeo as somebody who would write threats with the "blood of his(enemies) children". In the 8th episode more of his violence is shown, as he made his men attack the Teller-Morrow Garage along with the Chapel, leaving a bag behind which contained the heads of SAMTAZ President Armando and other members. The following night he would send his men to leave a truck with the beheaded corpses. It is assumed that he like his men and the Gallindo Cartel, was a Military agent.
Nate Meineke (Tim De Zarn) was the leader of a local state militia and terrorist group. He served in Vietnam alongside Piney Winston. He and his son, Russell, bought weapons from SAMCRO and used them to ambush a prison convoy to free one of their members. They then planned to go into hiding in Mexico. However, the Sons of Anarchy killed them by bombing their hideout bunker as they had brought heat onto SAMCRO with the shootings.
Russell Meineke (James Harvey Ward) was Nate's son. He was killed along with his father and the rest of their militia.
James "Jimmy" Cacuzza (Jeff Wincott) is the leader of a Mafia family. He and his gang buy weapons from SAMCRO. When one of the weapon shipments was late, the Sons of Anarchy hijacked a truck and gave the contents to the Mafia as a goodwill gesture.
Floyd (James Carraway) is the town barber in Charming and his shop is a neutral meeting place for law enforcement and SAMCRO members.
Elliott Oswald (Patrick St. Esprit) is a prominent businessman and ranch owner in Charming. Claims his family has been in Charming longer than SAMCRO, and he and SAMCRO had trouble getting along.
When his daughter Tristen (Liana Liberato) was raped by a carny from a traveling carnival, Elliott - against the will of wife Karen (Judith Hoag) - came to the club seeking biker justice. After this, the relationship between the Oswalds and SAMCRO shifted - Elliot's gratitude towards the club left him a resourceful contact when the club needs someone with influence or money.
Clay used him to gain information about a federal informant in the season 1 finale. In season 2, his land was threatened with purchase/eminent domain by Jacob Hale, Jr., Deputy Chief David Hale's older brother, but SAMCRO and Hale were able to prove that the eminent domain threat was a ruse and that there was no real threat of Oswald's land being taken thereby ending the deal. Later, after being approached by Gemma and, with some urging from his daughter, Elliott puts up the bail for the members of SAMCRO who were arrested after a failed attack on Ethan Zobelle.
In season 3, Oswald attempts to run for mayor against the scheming Jacob Hale, Jr. who is attempting to turn Charming against SAMCRO. Following the violence of season two and the driveby at Half-Sack's wake, Oswald has decided to try and distance himself from SAMCRO, because he feels that his relationship with them could cost him the mayoral position. However, following the extension of SAMCRO's bail hearing, Clay Morrow is still able to convince Elliott to let SAMCRO fly on one of his cargo planes to Belfast (Oswald's cargo planes are not subject to Customs control).
At the start of season 4, it is revealed that much of Elliot's land holdings were seized by Charming through the use of eminent domain for the construction of a new land development called "Charming Heights". The seizure cost Elliot millions of dollars, so, as compensation, Oswald Construction is given the contract to build Charming Heights.
Lowell Harland, Jr. (Keir O'Donnell) is a second-generation mechanic at Teller-Morrow Automotive Repair and a drug addict. He is not a member of the motorcycle club. His father was killed by the Sons for betraying them but Lowell initially did not know the truth (This is Clay's version of events he tells to Lowell Jr., however, a discussion between Clay and Gemma implies that Lowell Sr. was implicated in something far more secret. When his father's body was found in a grave along with the bodies of Mayans, Clay worried he might give information about the club to the ATF. Clay goes to Lowell's apartment to kill him but, after telling him the truth about his father's death, decides not to. Lowell has a son of his own named Moby. Most recently, he was present and appeared sober at the coming home party for Abel, Jax's son.
Chuck "Chucky" Marstein (Michael Marisi Ornstein) is a prison friend of Otto's who was a bookkeeper for a Triad gang. In season 1, Chuck was shown to be regularly beaten by Triads in the prison so Otto arranged for SAMCRO to protect Chuck upon release in exchange for a large sum of money that Chuck claimed was hidden in the kitchen of a Triad restaurant. However, Chuck proved to be rather paranoid and also afflicted with compulsive masturbation disorder that reared itself at inopportune times. Chuck led them to the money but SAMCRO was upset when it was revealed that the money was counterfeit and that the Triads were really after two printing templates that Chuck stole. Clay made a deal with the Triad leader, Lin, to exchange real money for Chuck and the templates.
In season 2, Chuck is shown to have had all but his index fingers cut off when his compulsive masturbation disorder became too much for Lin to tolerate. When Chuck's services were no longer needed, Lin offered to trade Chuck back to SAMCRO but Clay refused. Tig, feeling sympathetic, offered to take Chuck and promised to set him up as the new bookkeeper at Luann's studio. This turned out to be a good move as Chuck has proved himself to be a capable accomplice on numerous occasions. Chuck helped SAMCRO gain access to Georgie Caruso's studio when he went in and caused a distraction by saying that he wanted his mutilated hands to be used in fetish pornography.
Chuck was sleeping in the office of the porn studio when A.J. Weston and Ernest Darby came to burn it down. He awoke from the commotion and tried to make a phone call for help but couldn't get a connection. He watched as Weston and his goons double-crossed Darby.
Chuck, having survived the fire, came out of hiding in the episode "Culling." He told SAMCRO what really happened at the porn studio and they suggested that he file a police report about this so the MC could collect insurance money and help get A.J. Weston arrested. In the season 2 finale, Deputy Chief Hale revealed that, since Chuck was a convicted felon, he was considered an unreliable witness and, therefore, Hale could not hold Weston on the arson charge.
In season 3, Chuck is shown as a an associate of SAMCRO, handling basic tasks at Teller-Morrow and serving coffee to the SAMCRO members in their Clubhouse. Later in the episode, Chuck is shot in the shoulder during the drive-by at Half-Sack's wake. In the second episode, Chuck once again proves useful by creating a distraction, crying out "Look what they did to my hands!" and running wildly through the hospital that he was staying at. This distraction lured away police that were guarding a rival gang-member, partially responsible for the drive-by at Half-Sack's wake, so that SAMCRO could interrogate him. He repeated a similar stunt later on at the hospital, so that Tig and Kozik could sneak into the same gang-member's room and kill him with cyanide as a favor to the Mayans.
In the Season 3 finale, he informs SAMCRO that he never disposed of five million dollars worth of defective counterfeit money left over from his time with the Triad and donates it to the club. Two million dollars of it is later used to secure the acquisition of Jimmy from the Russians.
Chuck frequently responds to commands and insults with the comment "I accept that."
In Season 4 Gemma bought Chuck prosthetic hands because his one finger was " freaking her out."
Charlie Horse (Randolph Mantooth) is the chief of the Wahewa tribe and manufactures ammunition for the Sons of Anarchy MC. He also presided over the wedding of Harry 'Opie' Winston and Lyla Winston.
Rosen (Tom Everett Scott) is the club's lawyer. There is a suggestion that his connection to the club is at least somewhat personal as well as professional.
Brenan Hefner (Lyle Kanouse) was the Oakland Port Commissioner. He was described as being "very dirty" by Agent June Stahl, "greedy" by Clay and was seen to be a frequent womanizer. Hefner and his port thugs ambushed Real IRA member Michael McKeavey upon his return to Oakland, and tried to get him to triple his pay-off to let McKeavey's weapon shipment through. The deal went bad, with McKeavey getting angry and scaring Hefner into having his thugs beat and break McKeavey's neck and left him for dead. Cameron Hayes planned revenge but, after being incapacitated by a gunshot, and short on time before Hefner left on business, Jax, Bobby and Opie ended up having to do it. Clay told Bobby to make sure Opie killed Hefner (to prove Opie's commitment to the club) but, when the moment came and Opie froze up, Bobby quickly stepped in and gunned Hefner down himself. Bobby and Opie were later charged with Hefner's murder, and with Hefner's position as a state official, the State Attorney sought the death penalty against them, until the case was dismissed following the disappearance of the only witness.
Eviqua Michaels (Ashley Monique Clark) was the 17-year-old African American neighbor of Brenan Hefner's mistress and witnessed his murder. Afterwards, she went to the police and positively identified Bobby as the shooter, and was prepared to identify Opie later. Her position as a state's witness left her identity protected until Elliot Oswald used his contacts to uncover his name and the location of her safehouse. Eviqua was taken hostage until, rather than killing her, Jax Teller threatened her into leaving California. Her disappearance led to the State Attorney dismissing the case against Bobby and Opie.
Jacob Hale, Jr.
Jacob Hale, Jr. (Jeff Kober) is a businessman and older brother of Deputy Chief David Hale. At the beginning of season 2, Jacob brings Ethan Zobelle and L.O.A.N. into Charming, presenting them to his brother as a way to get SAMCRO out of town. Jacob hopes to profit financially from SAMCRO's removal and, unlike his brother, is unconcerned with L.O.A.N.'s political and racial motivations and beliefs. Jacob also hopes to secure financial backing from Zobelle's business contacts but is later informed by Zobelle that his people would be more inclined to help Jacob if he were to become more aligned with their cause. After learning of Gemma's rape, Deputy Chief Hale helped SAMCRO thwart a scam Jacob was using to seize land from Elliott Oswald for development. Later in the season, Elliott Oswald revealed to Clay that Jacob Hale was attempting to run for mayor of Charming because the position could possibly allow him to exercise executive power to obtain Oswald's land. With Zobelle's backing, Jacob is running for mayor of Charming.
In season 3, Jacob becomes a more prominent character. He has become more determined to remove SAMCRO from Charming, telling Wayne Unser that SAMCRO can no longer maintain their end of their deal with the Charming Police Department, where the police would look the other way on SAMCRO's activities in exchange for keeping violence out of Charming. He forms an uneasy alliance with Unser, where he promises to support Charming PD in exchange for Unser's support of his mayoral campaign.
Hale's development company has been muscling businesses into closing on Liberty Street in Charming so that they can redevelop the area. Lumpy Feldstein, an elderly Holocaust survivor and SOA friend, is the only tenant that refuses to close his business (a boxing gym). Hale hires Ernest Darby to try and convince Lumpy to vacate his property, but he is unsuccessful. Hale is then able to convince Hector Salazar, former leader of the Calaveras MC and enemy of SAMCRO, to rough up Lumpy but Salazar takes it too far, nearly killing him (Lumpy ultimately does die from his wounds). Hale is then blackmailed by Salazar into giving out information about Tara Knowles' activities. Hale was recently part of a unanimous vote by the Charming city council to have the San Joaquin Sheriffs Department take over Charming PD, which Police Chief Wayne Unser views as a complete betrayal. Hale is eventually held hostage by Hector Salazar, but after Jax kills Salazar, he takes the credit for supposedly stabbing Salazar with a pen.
In season 4, it has been revealed that Jacob has successfully become Mayor and is planning a new set of luxury homes known Charming Heights, something that SAMCRO are not happy about at all.
Ima (Kristen Renton) is a porn star employed by Luann Delaney and is introduced in Season 2. She was at one point infatuated with Jax and tried to make him and Tara break up. Tara proved she wouldn't back down by having sex with Jax in the porn studio's bathroom and playfully shooting up Ima's car. Ima was arrested in the episode "Fa Guan" when Charming police found her and other girls soliciting sex and drugs on behalf of an unknown source that offered them $10,000 to do so. Jax refused to bail her out of prison. In season three, Ima continues to make advances at Jax, but he rebuffs her. In the episode "The Push", Jax breaks up with Tara and is seen having sex with Ima. When Tara caught them and became upset, Ima showed no signs of remorse. She attempted to climb back into bed with Jax, but to her surprise Jax kicked her out of the clubhouse. When she left she was slapped in the face by Lyla. Ima returned in Season 4 and had a one-night stand with Opie. She pulled a gun at the clubhouse after she was confronted by Lyla, Tara, and Gemma the following day. Later, Jax paid her a visit under the guise that he was interested in a rendezvous with her, but when they were alone in her dressing room, he slammed her face into a make-up table and warned her to stay away from the club.
Georgie Caruso (Tom Arnold) is a rival to Luann Delaney in the pornography business. Introduced in season 2, Caruso is a scumbag who took advantage of Luann's legal troubles to steal away her performers. He physically abused and threatened the performers to keep them from leaving. SAMCRO threatened Caruso and, for a time, he backed off. Later in the season, Luann's new studio was broken into in the episode "Potlatch." Sex tapes and expensive equipment were stolen and the guard dog was found dead and mutilated. All evidence pointed to Caruso so Jax, Bobby and Opie paid him a visit. They found and retrieved Luann's belongings but not before threatening Caruso and destroying his laptop. Later, Charming police found Luann Delaney on the side of the road, apparently beaten to death. It is implied that Georgie Caruso was involved. Soon after Luann's death, Half-Sack said Georgie and his crew skipped town and fled the country to go to Thailand to "recruit" new talent.
In season 4 he returns trying to work a new "real sized sex-dolls" business. The club tries to reach to him when Otto after being presented tests by Linc Potter regarding Luann's involvement with Bobby, demands that Georgie be killed for Luann's murder. He is captured and ready to be killed, but pleading for his life he claims he has billionaire "sex-freaks" asian contacts, which sparks Clay's interest for a potential way to end Jacob Hale's investment plan. After he went back on his word on the fake investment, and after admitting he was responsible for killing Luanne, Tig and Opie executed him in the trunk of his own car.
Neeta (Cleo King) becomes Abel's baby-sitter during Season Two. Following Abel's kidnapping, she hasn't appeared on the show.
Margaret Murphy (McNally Sagal) is an administrator at St. Thomas and disapproves of Tara's relationship with Jax and the Sons of Anarchy. When insurance issues meant that Chibs would be removed from St. Thomas before he made a full recovery, Gemma confronted Margaret about the situation in an elevator at the hospital. Margaret then filed an insurance fraud complaint accusing Tara of coaching Chibs to fake symptoms in order to extend his stay at the hospital and had Tara's hospital privileges suspended. When Margaret's meddling becomes too much, Tara accuses Margaret of putting the hospital profit dangerously ahead of the quality of care and proceeds to give her a mild beating (black eye, bloody nose) before telling her to back down or SAMCRO will cause her harm. In season 3, Margaret becomes more supportive of Tara, encouraging her not to endanger her career and let her talents as surgeon go to waste when Tara contemplates taking an extended leave from the hospital after Abel's kidnapping. Margaret states her actions against Tara (in season 2) and her support of her (in season 3) are not personal but are what she considers best for the hospital.This proves to probably be false when in the "Turas" Salazar took her and Tara hostage when they checked her for tattoos they found what looked like a large "property of" tattoo on her back. Margaret reveals to Tara that when she was younger she was together with a reckless biker and that after he died from a drug overdose, she turned her life around and the tattoo is to remind her that she has left that life behind. This is identical to what Tara told Gemma in the show's pilot episode. Margaret is set free from her captors, when Tara volunteers to stay behind and try and save Salazar's girlfriend, whose throat Tara slit during an escape attempt.
Nate Madock (Hal Holbrook) is Gemma Teller's elderly father. He was married to Gemma's mother Rose who is recently deceased. Gemma and Tig visit Nate when they are on the run from Gemma's murder charges. He suffers from the early stages of dementia (believing his wife to still be alive) and has a caretaker. He shoots Tig in the shoulder with a rifle when he catches him having sex with his caretaker, believing his caretaker to be his wife Rose. After the unrelated death of the caretaker, a heartbroken Gemma decides to put Nate in a home for the elderly.
Amelia Dominguez (Monique Gabriela Curnen) is Nate Madock's caretaker. Amelia is an illegal immigrant with no family in the United States. She and Tig start a sexual relationship when Gemma visits her father. After Nate shoots Tig believing him to be an intruder, Amelia looks up Gemma on the internet and finds that there is a warrant and reward for her arrest. Gemma subdues her and duct tapes her to a wheelchair in the basement. Tara comes to care for Tig's wound and ends up caring for Amelia as well. Amelia tricks Tara and breaks free from her restraints. She attacks and tries to stab Gemma, but in a scuffle ends up accidentally stabbing and killing herself. Tig employs the services of Bachman, a "cleaner", (played by the author Stephen King) who disposes of Amelia's body down a slop sink in the basement.
Bachman (Stephen King) is an independent biker. He is the "cleaner" who Tig hires to dispose of the body of Gemma's father's slain caretaker Amelia. He is an eccentric character who demands that Tig plays 80s music on the stereo while he performs his craft. When the deed is done, Tara inquires about where she is, meaning Amelia, and he coldly replies, "Where's who?"
Ally Lowen (Robin Weigert) is a colleague of Rosen, and the new legal counsel of SAMCRO in Season Three. Aware of the club's illegal business, she does not hesitate to help them. She becomes Gemma's counsel in the investigation regarding the deaths of Polly Zobelle and Edmond Hayes.
Lumpy Feldstein (Michael Fairman) is a local boxing club owner, a survivor of the Holocaust and a close friend of SAMCRO. Refusing to sell his clubhouse to an unknown buyer (revealed to the viewers to be Jacob Hale, Jr.) he finds himself and the clubhouse under increasing threats of violence. After Ernest Darby, bribed by Hale, is unsuccessful in convincing Lumpy to vacate his property, Hale pays Hector Salazar to rough up Lumpy and deliver a phony message that he is acting on behalf of the Mayans MC in an attempt to re-ignite the war between the Mayans and SAMCRO. In the hospital, Lumpy tells Chief Wayne Unser that he will be closing his gym. In a later episode, Unser states that Lumpy died from internal bleeding sustained from his wounds.
Dondo (David Hasselhoff) is a former pornstar turned director. He has a great fondness for Luann Delaney, whom he credits for helping him find a career in the industry beyond performing on-camera, and he wants to see Luann's death avenged. Dondo made his first appearance in Season 4.
