The Lizzies

The Lizzies were founded sometime before May 20, 1979 as an all-female gang, and adopted Union Square in Bowery, Manhattan as their territory. They sometimes arm themselves with firearms, but appear to be inexperienced with them. Using their developed gifts that they honed over the years to their advantage, they can easily sneak their way past any crew’s defense.

Following the meeting in Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx, which saw the death of Cyrus, the leader of the Gramercy Riffs, a request was sent out by the Riffs for the Coney Island-based gang the Warriors to be captured.

The Lizzies were one of the gangs to respond to this request; at Union Square, a group of Lizzies came across three members of the Warriors: Vermin, Cochise and Rembrandt. Rembrandt was very reluctant to go and could sense that something was not right when they turned up at their apartment.

Believing the Warriors were the ones that blew away Cyrus and there’s a bounty on their heads, the Lizzies attempt to make a bigger name for themselves by wasting the three Warriors they lured back to their hangout. At the hangout, Vermin and Cochise were lulled into a false sense of security, and the Lizzies attempted to kill the trio by drawing handguns on the gang. However, Rembrandt was able to warn his fellow Warriors and they were able to escape, with Rembrandt only receiving a cut on the arm.
