The Gangster Disciples are a Criminal Street Gang which was formed on the South-side of Chicago in the late 1960s, by Larry Hoover, leader of the Supreme Gangsters, and David Barksdale, leader of the Black Disciples. The two groups united to form the Black Gangster Disciple Nation (BGDN). The 6 point star stands for Love Life Loyalty. Knowledge Wisdom Understanding. In Chicago, The Gangster Disciples have a long and bitter rivalry with the Black Disciples. Since their creation, the Gangster. Disciples have branched out throughout the United States.
The group is involved in fringe arcane activities, with possible hedge mages within their organization locally. One of these, Don “King Kobra” Washington, “runs” the stalkers. Thanks to this groups work with King Kobra before, they are used to odd magic, and thus do not count as sleeper witnesses.

The Stalkers all live in 7405 N Wolcott Ave apartments next to Pottawattomie Park. They use the back of a local car dealership/service center, 6 Points Auto Service and Sales, as a meeting place and clubhouse. The dealership owner is Walton Simms He does not trust King Kobra, and is unhappy with the Stalkers getting closer to him while using his shop as a base. Sims knows Kobra is off, but also knows he is both too powerful and well connected to take on.
