The Innocentz are a vicious and well-armed gang operating out of the East Los Albos district. They're often seen using firearms, particularly revolvers or sawn-off shotguns, but are also armed with knives, hatchets, and sickles. They also prefer to use combined force instead of individual skill.
The Innocentz have two factions: the bulk of the Innocentz are composed of the Skullz (more commonly called Skullyz), a group of Latino goths, gangbangers (particularly Sureños), and Satanists who also belong to local gang sets such as Malos or Muerte 187. They wear dark colored jeans, track pants, wife beaters, or torn hoodies along with Grim Reaper masks, skull-face paint, and gang tattoos.
There are also the Baby Faces, a group of overweight perverts and mentally unstable murderers who Starkweather hired to add muscle to the gang. Their name comes from the creepy porcelain doll masks with oversized glass eyes they wear. They usually wear Hawaiian shirts, flannel shirts, brown or blue jean pants, pajama trousers, sneakers, and slippers.
Many of the Skullyz seem to be high on drugs, and can be heard mentioning peyote. They also can be heard muttering to themselves about a dark clairvoyant figure guiding them to kill Cash, along with curses and angry groans. Most of the Baby Faces, meanwhile, are genuine psychopaths and pedophiles who add a distressing contrast to the Skullyz; many of them are suggested to be intellectually disabled, acting in a disturbing child-like nature.
During the events of Manhunt, Ramirez is seen giving orders to the drunk and high Innocentz from inside the abandoned Carcer Church. After Ramirez dispatches the Innocentz throughout East Los Albos, Cash raids an abandoned mall claimed as Innocentz turf. Following Starkweather's instructions, Cash fights through the mall and witnesses the death of his family at the hands of the Baby Faces at the conclusion of this scene.
After escaping from the mall, Cash is forced to escort a Tramp through the streets and back alleys of East Los Albos which are being aggressively patrolled by the Skullyz. Cash leads the Tramp to a graveyard behind Carcer Church where he engages in a shootout with several members of the Innocentz before dropping the Tramp off and completing the scene.
Assassins for hire
(Innocentz member since 1998); Jules: "You may have seen me in Starkweather's film "View of Innocence". I'm looking for some freelance work. Are you trying to track somebody down? Someone who hasn't paid their debts, or a person that wronged you somehow... well I can find them, and make them PAY! I don't stop till I catch my prey."
- The Innocentz might be inspired by multiple hot topics that media watchdogs are known for hating, such as satanism, drugs & drug addiction, pedophilia, cartels, and gang violence in general.
- The Skullyz might be inspired by black metal, given how some of them wear corpse paint and are also shown to have a belief in Satanism.
- The Hooded Skullyz members, particularly the red-hooded and skull-faced model shows a striking resemblance to The Crimson Ghost, from the 1946 12 chapter Republic Film serial of the same name. This image was adopted by the Horror-Punk band The Misfits, famous for thirlyrics about monsters, violence, horror films, and serial killers. In addition, the pointed tooth skull mask worn by other Skullyz bears a resemblance to Pazuzu from The Exorcist.
- The mentally-disabled Innocent voiced by Adam Sietz, makes a scream that mimics Tarzan exactly during combat.
- The head models of the Skullyz members that wear hoods are actually only the visible portion of their mask, without the back part of the head. This means decapitating them would revel that their head is only a mask, and any plastic bag execution would cover only their heads while leaving their hoods uncovered. At the "Graveyard Shift" level, you have the opportunity to cut off their heads with Wire and put a Plastic Bag on them (for the Plastic Bag, you need an oob).
- The Skullyz being composed out of (seemingly, given the trivia regarding the song La Cucarucha) Mexican Satanists could be a reference to the infamous Mexican-American serial killer Richard Ramirez.
- The gang's levels are completely disconnected unlike the other ones. It's possible that this was a last minute addition, or other levels were removed and changed during development.
- The Skullyz are the only gang to speak another language (in their case, spanish) in the Manhunt series.
- The Innocentz could be based off of Latino gangs, such as Latin Kings or MS-13.
- It's possible most of the Skullyz are LaVeyan Satanists (who do not actually worship the biblical figure Satan, and instead view him as a positive figure in a non-religious way, and worship themselves instead), although some of them are implied to genuinely worship Satan.
- One of the Skullyz members of the Innocentz will sing the song "La Cucarucha" which is highly popular in Mexico, meaning that the Skullyz could possibly come from Mexican families, if not coming from Mexico itself.
- One of the Innocentz has a tattoo on his stomach saying "Rifa". This is likely a reference to the San Fierro Rifa gang from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and it might also imply that the Innocentz are somehow related to them.
- In the intro cutscene of "View of Innocence", one of the Innocentz is dual-wielding a pair of sickles and there are 3 Shotguns in the graveyard, suggesting that the Innocentz used shotguns or were dual-wielders in the beta.
- Cash kills a total of 80 Innocentz in the three scenes they appear in.
