   This section covers characters who are noteworthy, but who didn't travel with the companions and weren't their enemies. Some were allies who helped them out at some point, some were simply friends or lovers, and some never appear in the books at all, but are merely mentioned in passing. People marked (D) are deceased.

   Albert (D): Albert was a dwarf, one of the few survivors of a small ville in Kentucky. Kirkland, the baron of Hazard ville, had the townspeople slaughtered after they refused to bow to his will. Albert was kept alive by Kirkland's sec men as a driver and source of amusement; after the companions killed them all, he accompanied them into town.

   Big Mike (D): Big Mike worked as a slavetaker for Dredda Otis Trask and her people, bringing slaves to the mine at Slake City (though not freely; he himself was a slave, bound by laser manacles; they used one to amputate his right hand). When the companions escaped, they ran into him returning to the camp with a new batch of slaves. They beat him badly, but let him live - they figured letting him live with one hand was punishment enough (Breakthrough).
   They later ran into him in Idaho and inadvertently rescued him from a pack of mutie coyotes; he informed them that the Shadow Worlders were back and taking their own slaves - they had capture him, but he got free at the cost of his other hand. They drag him along when they go to attack the mine, but he flees during the chaos. In his glee at outwitting everyone, he stumbled off the road onto a section of weak glass, which collapsed, dropping him into a crevasse (Doom Helix).

   Blackwood, Tobias (D): Co-ruler of Haven.

   Carson, Sharona: Sharona Carson, wife of Baron Alias Carson, was once considered one of the most beautiful women in Deathlands. She had a brief fling with Ryan Cawdor when he ran with Trader and the convoy stopped in Towse for gas; their son Dean was born of that union. After Dean was born, she left her husband and traveled around Deathlands on a motorcycle, earning her living as a gaudy whore (Time Nomads).
   She caught radiation poisoning some years later and gave Dean to a friend to care for him, then disappeared (Seedling). It was assumed that she had died, but she joined a trading convoy, whose healer fixed her up. Some time later, she started getting "feelings" that she would see her son again, so she left the convoy in a town in the Carolinas and waited for him. They were soon reunited, and she traveled with the companions until they found a redoubt. After Dean showed her how the mat-trans worked, she lured him into the chamber and triggered the mechanism to get him away from Ryan (Separation).
   Three years later, she and Dean were separated trying to cross a flooded river; he was swept away and lost sight of her (Prodigal's Return).

Tidwell invited him into the ville, then tried to kill him; he evaded Tidwell's men and hid under a house, which Tidwell set on fire. As the fire rained down him, his mind snapped and he crawled free, still burning, to kill all the men with his laser rifle; he then set the ville's slaves free and fell into a coma. The natives nursed him back to health and he took a new name: Burning Man. The companions happened to be captured by his people, who took them to him.

He set up shop there and started recruiting others who had fled or been exiled from the two villes; they formed a group called the Hellbenders. Their goal was to gain revenge on the barons of both villes by killing them.

Doc drained the lake holding the fungus, and Crecca tried to stop him, but Doc killed him (Damnation Road Show).

   Croom, Bass (D): Sebastion "Bass" Croom was a successful trader from Menaville who made one bad choice when he was young - he killed a man for a map leading to a fabulous treasure (a redoubt).

   He was found by the Shadow Worlders' "recruiter", Big Mike, who gave him a ride to Slake City so that he could rejoin his compatriots.

He recovered and moved south to Florida, where he found the old Greenglades Amusement Park and fixed it up. He renovated a nearby prison into housing for old people, taking their money in exchange for a safe place to live.
   After his wife died, he fell into a deep depression, which made him vulnerable; when Adam Traven came to town with his posse, he got Larry hooked on dreem and slowly began to wrest power from him. During the final confrontation between Adam and the companions, Larry fell on top of Adam, pinning him, but Adam shot him several times and he died (Dark Carnival).
   Larry was morbidly obese (around 400 pounds) and nearly incapable of walking.
