The Golden Claws Fleet, so called beacuse of the gold-colored crab on their flag, is a group of vile tugboats who serve as antagonists for TUGS: The New Series
Little is known of the fleet's history until 1942, in which Sakharine, having faked his death to escape Bigg City, deposed the fleet's captian in a mutiny. He has since taken over, and used his fellow tugs as henchmen for his vile plans.
See "Sakharine" for more information.
The leader of the Golden Claws fleet, Sakharine is a diabolical swicher with a brilliant mind. He orchastrates the fleet's actions from his lair, but is not afraid to get his bumpers dirty if nessiary
Allan the Harbor Tug is Sakharine's second-in-command. He is cold and merciless, willing to do anything to acomplish his goals. However, he and Sakharine often disagree on the best coruse of action (Allan prefering a more direct aproach, while Sakharine likes to plan ahead).
There really isn't that much to Tom. A Railway Tug by nature, he is the principle member of any of Sakharine's railroad-based plans. He serves as the third-in-command of the fleet.
Despite his name, Jumbo is, in fact, a swicher. Despite not being as strong as his comrades, he is a master of stealth and is equiped with a muffled motor. He is often involved with the fleet's more quiet operations.
An ocean-going Tug, Pedro is, to put it simply, an eviler version of warrior: strong, yet stupid. He is the brute force of Sakharine's schemes, capable of going head-to-head with neary any Tug in Bigg City, even Hercules.
It is unkown what happened to the Gold Fleet's former captian after Sakharine depsoed him. It can be presumed that he is either dead or in hiding.
Sakharine has metioned at times that there was a another swicher in the fleet before his takeover, going by the name of Dawes. He heavaly implies that he killed Dawes when he attemped to rat them out to the Coast Guard.
