He recruits beggars, panhandlers and other people on the streets to be his eyes and ears and trains pigeons to send and receive messages. Apart from that, he also establishes a working intelligence network across the city without using phones or internet. This makes them untraceable and almost anonymous. John asks the Bowery King to get him some weapons where he gets him a single handgun with only 7 rounds.
Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio)
After John gets back to return to his life after getting his car and a new dog, Santino D’Antonio comes up with a reminder and a contract for John.

Ares (Ruby Rose)
Ares was Santino’s bodyguard who was mute but one of the most skilled fighters and very proficient in hand-to-hand combat. He was there overseeing John when he was attempting the assassination of Gianna D’Antonio. She had unquestionable loyalty towards Santino and never hesitates to put her life on the line to protect her boss. She wounded John but also got stabbed through the chest through her hand and leaves her to die. While Ares is about to die she used her sign language to tell John that “Be seeing you” as John leaves her to die
