A mechanic and one of Ladd's loyal devotees, going so far as to refer to Ladd as an older brother. He dresses in a blue mechanic's outfit and carries an oversized monkey wrench. He is one of the Powerhouse fighters of the Russo Family, an expert at hostage taking and was personally taught how to fight by Ladd Russo, though he is not a killer himself.

Born sometime in 1912, Graham worked at the Van Dyke Auto Plant as a mechanic (he is a brilliant mechanic, being able to do impossible feats such as dismantling a car mid-air). One day Ladd is sent out to kill the employees of the plant because they've been sending low quality parts to the Russo family instead of the ones they wanted, but as Ladd goes shooting around, he hits a car. This enrages Graham, and the two fight. Graham loses, but the two become friends. He already harbors deep admiration for Ladd, whom he refers to as "Boss Ladd" in the English dub.

Powers and Stats

Tier: 9-A

Name: Graham Specter

Origin: Baccano!

Gender: Male

Age: Unknown

Classification: Street gang leader, chop shop mechanic

Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, skilled leader, skilled melee weapon user, expert throwing weapon user, skilled saboteur, skilled strategist, skilled manipulator, expert negotiator, skilled kidnapper, genius mechanic, skilled poet?

Attack Potency: Small Building level (Easily cratered several meters of concrete floor with his wrench, slightly weaker than Ladd Russo physically, managed to fight Christopher Chareau de Red. According to Ladd Russo, Graham is much better than he is in a fight but he just refuses to kill his opponents.)

Speed: Superhuman travel speed; with Supersonic reactions and combat speed (Close-range bullet timer, caught a rifle bullet in his wrench from less than a half dozen meters away, said rifle bullets are likely Mach 1.5–2.0 based on the most likely weapon. He can also do crazy things like dismantling a car in mid air easily.)

Lifting Strength: Unknown

Striking Strength: Small Building Class (Slightly weaker than Ladd Russo)

Durability: Small Building level 

Stamina: Unknown

Range: Extended human melee range with his wrench; dozens of meters by throwing his wrench

Standard Equipment: Graham's weapon of choice is a large crescent wrench that he can use to fight or throw like a boomerang (aiming at proper angles when thrown so that it will come back like a boomerang.)

Intelligence: Above Average, Genius (when it comes to dismantling machinery.) Despite being bipolar, impulsive and insane, Graham is quick to adapt, very versatile and can be surprisingly cunning. All of this makes him far more unorthodox and unpredictable than Ladd, for it is far more difficult to discern a pattern in his fighting. Ladd himself admits that if Graham stopped holding back, he would be the better fighter of the two.

Weaknesses: Insane. Has a turbulent, bipolar personality. Tends to do things on a whim, and can be quite reckless; very prone to being controlled by the heat of the moment, and his emotions will often override any common sense. Has an obsession with dismantling things, be it objects or actual people. Despite this, he doesn't actually kill people, because killing makes him feel guilty—he merely "breaks" them. Due to idolizing Ladd Russo, he may give up a fight if he feels Ladd would enjoy fighting his opponent more than him.
