The Darmody family is a small family featured in the series Boardwalk Empire. It is composed of individuals of Irish, Italian, and likely German ancestry. It originated when 12-year old Gillian Darmody was raped and impregnated by Louis Kaestner, better known as "The Commodore", in 1897. ("Paris Green") They are eventually largely undone by dysfunctional family dynamics and the illegal liquor business.

In addition, the Darmody family used to look after a red cat that vanished early during the 1920 gang war between Nucky Thompson and Arnold Rothstein. ("Boardwalk Empire")
