SAMCRO - Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original

Clay Morrow

"Whatever you may think, the truth is everything I do is to protect what we got. It's never arbitrary. And it's never reactive. Been doing this for 30 years, I know a few things."

Jax Teller

"SAMCRO's got to change to survive."

Robert "Bobby Elvis" Munson

Harry "Opie"/"Ope" Winston

 Played By: Ryan Hurst

"You know this club means everything to me, the only thing I ever wanted from the time I went here. But everything else, Donna... the kids, work, their all heading in the opposite direction, just can't hook shit up. Feel like I'm missin' on every front."

  • Badass Beard
  • Beard of Sorrow
  • Expy: Started off as the Horatio to Jax's Hamlet, but sliding more into a Laertes sort of relationship with Clay/Claudius. By the end of Season 3 he's Jax's Horatio again
  • Death Seeker: Becomes this after Donna's death. He appears to have gotten better.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: During an attempt to intimidate a judge into giving a favorable verdict in a case by threatening the judge's son, Opie suffers a Heroic BSOD that hints this may be why he's been distancing himself from his own kids when it becomes clear how little the judge cares for his own son.
  • The Lancer: To Jax.
  • Promotion to Opening Titles: In season 2.

Juan-Carlos "Juice" Ortiz'

 Bobby: What are we going to do, walk up to him in the middle of Main street and cut off his head?

Happy: Okay.

"Big Otto" Delaney

 Played By: Kurt Sutter

  • Butt Monkey
  • Creator Cameo: Big Otto is played by Series Creator Kurt Sutter.
  • Despair Event Horizon: In season 4 he lost an eye, his wife is dead, he is facing a death sentence or at least life in prison and then Potter leads him to believe that his club and friends have betrayed and abandoned him.
  • Driven to Suicide: He is going to let the state do it for him. He will not appeal his death sentence and wants his execution date pushed forward
  • Eyepatch of Power
  • Genre Savvy: When Potter shows up a second time under his guise of "Sheriff Marcel" Otto calls the bluff: no sheriff has enough power to bug an infirmary room. When Potter tells him who he really is, Otto knows exactly what Potter wants and what he can do. Otto pretty much directs the rest of the conversation and Potter merely nods and agrees.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars Badass scar over his left eye.
  • Turncoat: After Lincoln Potter convinces him that Bobby and the club have betrayed him, he agrees to testify against them.

'Vic Trammel

 Played By: Glenn Plummer

Eli Roosevelt

Lincoln "Linc" Potter

 Played By: Ray McKinnon

  • Badass Biker: Subverted. He drives a bike but hasn't been shown doing anything remotely badass.
  • BeardOfMoralAmbiguity
  • Big Good: Throughout season 4, Potter appears to be similar to Stahl, working the Sons of Anarchy for his own ends. When his RICO investigation is ruined by the CIA, however, he reveals his true colors by thanking Roosevelt for his hard work, covering for Juice with SAMCRO, and undermining Hale's development project -- not because any of this brings him anything, but because the CIA's interference has made things worse for Charming. He does what little he can to make them better as he goes.
  • Bunny Ears Lawyer: Prone to philosophize and even does ballet moves on top of the table when left alone in his Secret Room. And eat candy while Otto reads the deal to sell out the club. And smoking while hanging upside down.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Consummate Liar
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: His trademark leather jacket.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Shaping up to be one.
