I would start by creating sets for every node in your graph that are
made up of the node and all of its edges. Then you can use the
issubset to filter down your collection.

The idea is a node find its completely connected subset. once you have
done this, you can remove all of those nodes from the universal set
and chose another node. repeat until the universal set is empty.
Remember the smallest completely connected subset is an individual

That should be a good enough starting point to figure out an alg that
works for you.
