"I didn't spend 5 years risking my life and my freedom to just be okay."
—Kyle Reston on the gang's motives[src]

The Royal Flush Gang is a legacy name used by several gangs operating in Starling City and Keystone City.

History

First Gang

According to John Diggle, the Royal Flush Gang began their crime spree on the east coast and began moving west. Most likely this was so they wouldn't be easy to track and catch. [1]

The Royal Flush Gang was actually a family of criminals whom Robert Queen had taken advantage of when he laid off their patriarch Derek Reston, one of 1,500 former employees who never received a severance package thanks to a loophole in his Union contract. This resulted in the Reston family losing their home shortly before the Queen's Gambit sank. [1]

To finance themselves and to ensure their family's financial security, they resorted to a three-year crime spree, originally operating with the intention of just stealing enough money so that they could live comfortably for the rest of their lives. They did, however, try to avoid hurting people whenever necessary. Whether this was out of a moral code of not wanting to harm innocents or simple common sense for not wanting additional heat from law enforcement is unknown. [1]

Second Gang

Second gang with an uncertain connection to the first one had surfaced in Keystone City in 2015, evading capture by police using keen strategy and motorcycles. They managed to evade The Flash by splitting up, as well, but using a strategy proposed by Harrison Wells he quickly cornered them by creating detours and stripped them of the keys for their transport, leaving them for police to arrest.
