    Sully faces The Warriors.

    On May 19, 1979, Sully made a report to the gang radio station that the Orphans had defeated the Coney Island-based gang The Warriors. In retaliation, a Warparty comprising of The Warriors made their way to Tremont, defeating a number of Orphans and interrupting a party at the Orphanage. Sully was with several members of the Orphans at the auto yard when The Warriors' Warlord Cleon and the rest of the Warparty approached. Sully and the Orphans were able to escape to safety behind a gate, but the Warparty then began destroying Sully's AMC Gremlin. Sully called on other members of the Orphans to attack the Warparty and protect his car, but The Warriors were still able to destroy the car and leave Sully sobbing on the ground.[2]

    Sully later encountered The Warriors following the meeting held in the Bronx. Due to their lack of renown, the Orphans weren't invited to the conclave, where The Warriors were blamed for the death of Cyrus, the leader of the Gramercy Riffs. As The Warriors attempted to return to Coney, they were stopped in Tremont due to a fire at the train station. As The Warriors made their way through Tremont, they came across Sully and the Orphans. The Warriors' new Warlord Swan and their scout Fox talked to Sully in an attempt to parley The Warriors' safe passage through Tremont, but talks broke down when Mercy appeared and challenged Sully's manhood. Sully then asked The Warriors to remove their vests while they were in Tremont, but Swan refused and Sully and the Orphans retreated inside a nearby building.[3][4]

    The Warriors continued on through Tremont, but they were followed by Mercy. When The Warriors stopped to confront Mercy; Sully and the Orphans attempted to ambush them. However, Swan threw a Molotov cocktail onto a nearby car, with the ensuing explosion giving The Warriors a chance to escape from Tremont.[3][4]

    [edit] Personality and traits

    Sully was the leader of the Orphans around the time of the meeting. The Orphans were regarded as one of the weakest gangs in New York City, and this was evident in Sully's leadership of the gang. Sully preferred to let the many members of the Orphans fight his battles, and his lack of leadership sometimes led to Sully's manhood being challenged by his girlfriend Mercy.[3][1]

    [edit] Behind the scenes

    Sully first appeared in the 1979 film The Warriors, in which he was portrayed by American actor Paul Greco.[5] Sully also appeared in the 2005 video game The Warriors, in which he was voiced by American voice actor Robert Cihra.[6]
