Not a few NPCs have been shuffled off this mortal coil. To see the list of those who are no longer amongst the living (or even pretending to be), see The Graveyard.

Pic of Marcus on the wall of his bar, circa 2016 (he's older and balder now, but still has the same expression):
A romantic interest of Leo's acquaintance. Met at the Craft Bar where she seems to hang out quite a bit.
Painter of wall art in the Craft Bar neighborhood.
An example of his art (this was the piece he did near the Craft Bar, which he thought had captured Mai's soul).
A friend of Mai Lewandon from the old neighborhood who does odd jobs tracking things down with his dog Wilsie.
Leo's current boss, in charge of the task force that's trying to figure out what's happening with The Serpent gang, and whatever they're brining in from Asia.
Another agent that works with Leo.
Missing niece of Pablo Verasante, a custodial worker (not resident) at the Coca-Cola Employee Housing Village (CCEHV) in Chicago. See the notes about her emails.
Rosa's room-mate, a nurse at the CCEHV before her murder, which occurred shortly before Rosa's disappearance. She worked in the Creche.
Another of Rosa's room-mates, she is the witness who establishes most of the timeline regarding both Maria's murder and Rosa's disappearance. A nurse at
Rosa's boyfriend, Victor helped Rosa gain access to a file regarding a couple who had been involved with adopting one of the children from the Creche at the CCEHV. Was told by somebody not to talk to anyone with regards to Rosa's disappearance.
Cyborg who ambushed Mai and Leo when they came to check on her and her husband, Roosevelt. Currently locked up in a cage at the base. Fanatically loyal to Dr. Seabach who apparently may have been involved with her current cybernetic form.
The elements listed below include individuals and organizations that are associated with empathy use in and around Chicago.
Code-name of the closest thing to a leader the underground has. Clearly a medical professional (likely a doctor), she is also pretty talented with her submachine guns.
Code-named “Veronica,” Doreen is an elderly mystic who approached Mai after Benny, and introduced everyone to the underground.

A small anglo guy with an officious manner who usually keeps quiet and isn't often seen at the base.

As Leo first saw her:
Cleaned up back at the base:
Code-name of a member who seems to be missing or on sabatical.
Code-named “faith”, missing member.
Code-name of a sorceress “affiliate” of the underground. Former member of the Order of the White Circle, and now a member of yet another order.
Owner of Delphine's books, and a talented sorceress. Like Panix, not a member of the underground, but one who is becoming more and more sympathetic.
An important member of the team. Got very beat up over time.
Replacement van stolen by Ezra when it was filled with dead dogs in plastic bags.
These empaths all study sorcery (mostly with a psionic bent). Panix was once a member of this order, but left when she felt they were starting to become corrupt.
Sorcerer that had created an out of control Tupla, who was rampaging all over the city, and stalking Max. Now dead.
Sorcerer who was looking for something in Eli's apartment. Later tried to recruit Mai. When Leo and Mai followed him through a graveyard, he escaped. Later defected to the Underground to avoid Ariel and Brenna (see below).
Were-bear associate of the society, killed in the graveyard when Leo and Mai followed Spencer. Her lover Bersk is also a member of the Order and a were-bear who was killed. Matt is Ann's brother, and not pleased about his sister's death.

The Destined are the heads of much of the organized crime in Chicago, and apparently hold this position in part due to their members known as the “Adepts” who are empaths (mostly sorcerers).
A.K.A. Belial to his trusted employees and friends. Manager of Club Doomsday, a nightclub located below the Chicago Club (which is apparently the HQ for the Destined)
