Nathaniel Cooper's gang began operating at least two years prior to the events of the short story Bamboozled, set in 1877. How long they had been operating is unknown but it was long enough for Nate himself to have garnered a reputation although word had not spread about the true nature of his relationship with his mate Lily. The gang operated schemes throughout the west, including Dakota Territory during 1877. They are known to have been thieves as well as utilising the acting skills of Lily to run grifting cons on townspeople and individual targets. The majority of the gang were unaware of Nate and Lily's identities as supernaturals and their occupation as bounty hunters. Whether some of them were unaware or may have been supernaturals themselves is unknown as is the exact size of the gang.
They are known to have taken on new members and jobs from a man named Wilcox who may have betrayed or set them up
