Atkins
A muscular Cenobite with pale blue skin, his face had patterns cut into it and ammo rounds were threaded through his torso. His mission for Leviathan was to control the situation in Philadelphia and prevent violence. Pinhead impaled him on hooks and warned him to stick to his task. Atkins told Mamiche and Matthew to give information to Jill and Lester respectively and felt his work was nearly complete. He attacked a drugs gang, making a survivor tell him where the rest were. He tried to stop the drug war and riots but, when no one listened, he began randomly killing. Realising he had failed, he shot and killed the Mayor, Vanessa and Louie. Before he could kill Matthew, Pinhead's hooks pulled him back to Hell.

Child
The child saw Lester aiming his gun at Jill outside his home.
DaCinza, Chief of Police Louie
A tall, older man with receding black hair and a thick moustache. He blamed the massacre of the drugs gangs on Matthew. Louie felt the people in the poor neighbourhoods were "animals". He organised the security for the Mayors press conference. Louie was shot and killed by Atkins.

Day, Assistant D.A. Matthew
Young with slicked back brown hair and large, round glasses. He accused Louie of blaming others for the Mayors fall in popularity and said he would take care of the situation. He felt Atkins was "screwing things up" but that the Cenobite wouldn't kill him. Atkins told him to inform Lester he had another tip. He suggested that the Mayor held a press conference to keep the situation calm. Atkins tried to shoot him but was dragged to Hell. Matthew saw Pinhead appear in the riot and indicate for Matthew to say nothing. Matthew became Acting Mayor after the riot was over.

Lester shot and killed her.

Gang Member

George, Lester

He collapsed to the floor in guilt.
Hassan
