On the fictional TV series The Wire
, a man known only as The Greek
leads a criminal organization only known as The Greeks. The organization is introduced in Season Two as a mysterious and powerful criminal syndicate. Based in Highlandtown in Southeastern Baltimore, a predominantly Greek
neighborhood of the city, the organization pay off the I.B.S. dock workers to facilitate the importation and distribution of drugs and illegal goods through the port. They are a tangential part of the Major Case Unit's investigation in season two, but the organization's leaders escape capture due to connections to the FBI. The Greeks return to Baltimore at the end of Season Four and by Season Five have resumed business with the various other drug organizations in Baltimore. Compared to other antagonist groups of later seasons, however, The Greek's organization survives largely intact.
The following is a list of characters associated with that organization.
