Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven[edit]

Thomas "Tommy" Angelo[edit]

  • Died: September 25, 1951
  • Introduced in: Prologue
  • Killed in: Epilogue/Stairway to Heaven (Mafia II)
  • Voiced by Michael Sorvino

Tommy Angelo is the protagonist in the game. At the opening of the storyline, Tommy originally worked as a taxi driver, but he reluctantly joined the mob after a series of unfortunate events that happened to him. It was established that he was born and raised in a poor family, as he once implied when he first refused to join Salieri's family.[1]

Tommy is a down-on-luck guy, who, although living in poverty, having no social life and having virtually no family, he has strong moral values and is a very intelligent person. He spent his youth doing odd jobs around Lost Heaven to have enough money to handle himself. After years of unemployment, he found a job as a taxi driver on the streets of Lost Heaven.

While by his cab on September 30, 1930 two mafia gangsters, (later to be his partners) Paulie and Sam surprise Tommy and tell him to outrun some rival mobsters chasing them. He soon gets involved with Don Salieri and all his criminal operations. He does jobs like murdering other gangsters, collecting money, entering races, stealing property, bootlegging, robbing banks, and damaging people and or property. He rises through the ranks of the family by using his cunning style to overcome obstacles in the family, like their consigliere ratting on the family, and skill to do any job. He meets contacts all over the city, who give him helpful tips as well as help him out during his missions, like mechanics and safe crackers. The Salieri family eventually gets its vendetta so high with the Morello's, a rival family, that they break out in war. Morello's brother is killed along with many of his partners and associates, and Morello's ruthlessness causes him to lose the war. During all of this, he becomes involved with Sarah, the daughter of the bartender of Salieri's Bar, Luigi.

Finally, in the year 1938, Paulie and Tommy find out that Salieri has been fooling them, secretly smuggling diamonds and keeping all the profits. Frustrated over being fooled out of a significant sum of money, Paulie suggests that they rob a bank. Sam refuses but does not reveal he will tell Salieri. Tommy first refuses, but once they are alone Paulie convinces him and they make up a plan. The heist is successful, but the very next day, Tommy finds Paulie in his apartment lying dead in a pool of blood. Sam calls Tommy and tells him to meet at an art gallery where it is revealed Salieri has ordered the deaths of Paulie and Tommy after their moonlighting (Sam told about Paulie's suggestion, making it of no difficult to guess who did that bank heist).

After a shootout Tommy comes out victorious, killing Sam and several of Salieri's men. He quickly flees to Europe with Sarah and his (never named) daughter, but returns the same year (in the intro of the game) where he set up a meeting with a detective Norman at a restaurant. During the afternoon, Tommy tells his story (and thereby narrates the game piece by piece) and agrees to testify against Salieri if he gets a shorter sentence and receives protection, saying "If these people go to jail, or better up – death row – they will not be able to take revenge on me. At least not as easily if they were free." He then goes into the Witness Protection Program with his wife Sarah and daughter, and after the grand trial - in which more than 80 gangsters are sentenced to electrocution or prison for at least 15 years, and Salieri to life. Tommy, although in the program, is sentenced to 8 years in prison, released in 1946.

After the war, Tommy and his family are moved to Empire Bay, all the way on the East Coast, and Tommy gets a job as a driver "for a respectable company", but along with some mafia profits to hold a good life. On September 25, 1951 he stands outside his house, now 51 years old, watering the grass when a car stops by on the sidewalk (12 years after the start of the trial). Two men (revealed in Mafia II that they are Vito Scaletta and Joe Barbaro) get out, walk to Tommy and asks "Mr. Angelo?". Tommy confusedly answers "Yes?" and the hitman answers "Mr. Salieri send his regards", the other lifts a lupara and shoots him in the chest. As a woman screams and the two men get back into their car and hurry away, Tommy lies on the grass with a big hole in his chest, blood running out, the hose lying next to him. Tommy's last narration as the camera rises from his dead body ends with "I think it's important to keep a balance in things. Yeah, balance, that's the right word. Cause the guy who wants too much risks losing absolutely everything. Of course, the one who wants too little from life, might not get anything at all."

The character of Tommy Angelo is probably a reference of Ray Liotta's character from Goodfellas, Henry Hill, or Joe Valachi, the first mobster to acknowledge the existence of the Mafia.

Tommy appears briefly in Mafia II, as Vito Scaletta, the protagonist of the game, and Joe Barbaro, are given the assignment to kill him.

Norman[edit]

  • Introduced in: Prologue
  • Voiced by David O'Brian

Norman is the Irish American Lost Heaven detective tasked with interviewing Tommy to get information about the crime family. While he was reluctant to cooperate with Tommy at first, he agrees to help Tom and his family by giving them new identities and moving them to the western side of the United States. After their interview, Tommy was sentenced for 8 years in prison, and then relocated in Empire Bay.

Don Ennio Salieri[edit]

Don Ennio Salieri is the head of the Salieri family, one of the two major families in the city. Salieri is from Sicily, and he arrived in Lost Heaven when he was young at the end of the 19th century. He met Morello, and they have become good friends. They joined the Peppone family looking for a job around 05' an 06', and as they grew up in the ranks, the two became Don Peppone's two most trusted capos, working for him during the late 00's and during World War I. They served him for years, until Don Peppone was killed in a bad deal in the early 1921. Salieri and Morello blamed each other for the Don's death and decided to divide up Lost Heaven into two territories for their own families. Don Salieri is also a friend of Don Frank Vinci of Empire Bay and he also helped him set up the Vinci Family shortly after settling his own. By the time Tommy joins in, Salieri runs the family for 9 years.

In 1930, Morello began to attack Salieri's men and businesses in order to expand into Salieri's territory. He soon enlisted Thomas Angelo into his family. During the mob war, Salieri lost nearly everything, being under pressure from both the police and Morello's men, even worse his trusted consigliere, Frank Colletti was forced to betray him. However things began to change from bad to good. Salieri gained the valuable whiskey shipment stolen by William Gates from Morello, which dealt him a hard blow. In 1935, Salieri was having lunch with Tommy at his favorite diner Pepe's Restaurant, but they were suddenly attacked by assassins sent by Morello - luckily both survived the attempt on their lives, but the restaurant was destroyed in the process; Salieri sent repair funds to Pepe. He then accompanied Tommy to Carlo's apartment to finish the traitor. Salieri then plotted a chain of assassinations on Morello's key figures which are, the City Councilor, Sergio Morello Jr., and finally Morello. They were all killed and led to the Morellos' downfall. With Morello gone, Salieri became the most powerful man in Lost Heaven.

In 1938, he sent Tommy and the others to steal the crates filled with cigars, but were really diamonds meant to be sold for profit. Salieri then discovered that Tommy had spared both Frank's and Michelle's lives and along with Paulie robbed the bank, this angered Salieri, he then ordered Sam to kill both Tommy and Paulie, as well as Frank and Michelle. However, Tommy survived the ambush and later testified against Salieri. Salieri was sentenced to life imprisonment, where he died a year later, and his family continued to rule Lost Heaven, although weakened from death of Sam and Salieri. In September 1951, 13 years since Tommy's betrayal, Tommy was assassinated by Vito Scaletta and Joe Barbaro as a favor for the Salieri family.

Don Salieri is most likely a reference to Paul Cicero from the movie Goodfellas, in which Cicero was portrayed by Paul Sorvino, father of Tommy Angelo's voice actor Michael Sorvino.

Paulie[edit]

  • Died: 1938
  • Introduced in: An Offer you Can't Refuse
  • Killed in: The Death of Art
  • Voiced by William DeMeo

Paulie had a rough childhood, and eventually took up a life of crime in Lost Heaven. At some point before the 1930s, Don Ennio Salieri took him into his family and he climbed the ranks of the family, eventually becoming a Soldato. He may have also served in World War I, considering his age and skill and experience with firearms, although nothing is mentioned in the game.

In 1930, Paulie and his partner Sam were trying to get away from Morello's men, but their car broke down during the chase. In a desperate escape attempt, they then kidnap a cab driver and force him to act as a getaway driver and manage to get away from the assassins. The next day, Thomas "Tommy" Angelo (the cab driver from yesterday) was chased down by the assassins. Tommy decided to seek refuge at Salieri's Bar, where he dropped off Paulie and Sam the day before, and Paulie killed the thugs to return the favor to Tommy. Paulie also helped Tommy wreck the cars outside Morello's Lounge Bar.

Paulie, along with Sam and Tommy, were ordered by Salieri to collect protection money from their businesses, however they were ambushed by a group of thieves at Clark's Motel, but the three luckily survived. He along with Tommy were then assigned to beat up the street hoodlums after they tried to rape Sarah, but were forced to use firearms. They unknowingly killed Billy, the City Councilor's son.

Paulie and Tommy were then assigned to meet up with Sam at the farm for the whiskey shipment from Canada, but discover that the shipment is gone and all of Sam's men were dead, they manage to find the injured Sam and escaped the police. They then took Sam to the Doctor and drove back to Salieri's Warehouse. He then met a whiskey dealer, William Gates who offered to sell his shipment from Kentucky to Salieri. During the deal, a group of armed men attacked them, killing William in the process. Paulie, Sam and Tommy manage to kill all the armed men and brought the shipment back to Salieri's Warehouse. They then discovered that William was actually a smuggler, who smuggled Morello's whiskey shipment.

In 1935, Paulie helped Tommy escaped from the steamboat after succeeding in killing the City Councilor during his birthday party. He then participated in assassinating Sergio Morello, but failed. He was also partly responsible for Don Morello's assassination.

In 1938, Paulie and Tommy smuggled several crates filled with "cigars", under Salieri's orders, but the discovered that the crates were filled with diamonds Paulie tried to persuade Tommy to steal the diamonds with him that were found in the cigar boxes, which Don Salieri ordered them to steal. Paulie tried to persuade Tommy to steal them, but he refuses. The next day, Tommy considered in being apart of Paulie's bank robbery scheme. After collecting the weapons and getaway car, they started the robbery, however Paulie was forced to kill a civilian for panicking and along with Tommy escaped from the police, he thought of moving to Hawaii.

Following the bank robbery, Paulie was killed and the money was stolen. Sam reveals to Tommy that he was "more the means to his death", whether this means he personally killed Paulie or another member of the family killed him, it remains unknown. In the end, Tommy took his revenge and shot and killed Sam.

Paulie is most likely a reference to Tommy DeVito, played by Joe Pesci from the film Goodfellas.

Sam[edit]

  • Died: 1938
  • Introduced in: An Offer You Can't Refuse
  • Killed in: The Death of Art
  • Voiced by Matt Servitto

Not much is known about Sam's past or when he joined the Salieri crime family, but he is completely loyal and would do anything for Salieri, as he stated that the Salieri Family is very important to him. He may have also served in World War I, considering his age and skill and experience with firearms, although nothing is mentioned in the game.

He and his partner Paulie were being chased by Morello's hitmen, their car then crashed and they saw a nearby cab along with the driver, Tommy. He threatened and ordered him to lose the hitmen. After successfully evading the hitmen, they then returned to Salieri's Bar, where Sam gave Tommy an envelope filled with money for the repairs on the cab. He along with Paulie and Tommy were sent by Salieri to collect the protection money; however, they were attacked at Clark's Motel by a group of thugs, who injured Paulie and himself, but Tommy was able to kill all of the thieves.

He and several of Salieri's men were sent to the farm somewhere at the countryside to pick up a whiskey shipment from Canada, but a group of corrupt police officers hired by Morello killed everyone except him and he was imprisoned within the barn. When Tommy and Paulie arrived, they discovered the police and fought their way to rescue him. The injured Sam was taken to the Doctor for treatment. After several days, Sam recovered and participated in the whiskey deal with William Gates, but were attacked by Morello's men, he along with Paulie and Tommy survived the ordeal and successfully got the whiskey shipment, which was later revealed to be Morello's shipment that was stolen by William Gates.

Sam was assigned with Paulie and Tommy to assassinate Morello at the opera house on Central Island, where he was watching the opera play, Creme De La Creme. However, the play ended earlier than expected, but the three managed to chase down and kill Morello.

He also participated in the plan to smuggle some crates filled with "cigars", but before that Paulie offered to plan a bank heist, but refuses to do so. He then drives Salieri to the warehouse to take a look at the crates.

He was ordered by Salieri to kill Tommy and Paulie for robbing the bank. On the same day Paulie was murdered, he telephoned Paulie's Apartment acting as if nothing happened, and informed Tommy of the current situation and tells Tommy to meet him at the art museum. When Tommy arrives, he discovers his friend has betrayed him. Sam informs Tommy that he was "more the means to Paulie's death", while throwing all the money from the bank heist on the ground from above. After the talk and gunfight that follows, Tommy has a small gunfight at the top of the museum and they again have another chat. After Tommy shoots him a few times, Sam is injured severely but manages to shoot Tommy once more in the shoulder before running out of ammo in his Thompson. After looking for Sam, Tommy spots him at the same spot he first saw him at the beginning and shoots him in the back. After another small chat, Tommy shoots him two more times in chest from his Colt and walks away while Sam's blood drips down on the floor where the money fell down.

Sam is most likely a reference to Jimmy Conway, portrayed by Robert De Niro in Goodfellas.

Frank Colletti[edit]

  • Introduced in: Molotov Party
  • Killed in: He was believed killed in 'Omertà' but was actually killed prior to 'The Death of Art'.
  • Voiced by Dan Grimaldi

Frank is Don Salieri's best friend and consigliere, and was the one in charge of maintaining the legal side of the business. He knew Salieri for over 20 years, and was a made men during Don Peppone's rule. After Peppone's death, he joined Salieri, having him as his close friend. He controls the account books of Salieri's "legal" fronts - the bar and the warehouse, also controlling Salieri's finances. He is also Tommy's close mentor and often talks to him, giving him jobs. He also keeps Tommy's sanity, talking about his experiences with the family.

Although he is truly loyal to Salieri, in 1933, Frank's family is kidnapped by the police and Morello's thugs and told the only way to free them is to cooperate and hand over incriminating evidence on Salieri family affairs. He cooperates and Salieri orders Tommy to kill him.

After confronting Frank at the airport, Tommy learns about Frank's position and rescues his family from where they are being held captive. Tommy then allows them to escape to Europe and tells Salieri that Frank is dead.

5 years later, after Salieri found out that Tommy spared the life of a woman he was supposed to kill years ago, he launched an investigation to see if he spared Frank as well, and after Frank was found in Europe, he was killed, although his wife and daughter have been spared in Frank's honour.

Vincenzo[edit]

  • Introduced in: Molotov Party
  • Voiced by John Tormey

Vincenzo is Salieri's close friend, and also worked for Peppone during his rule. After Peppone's death, he joined sides with Salieri as well as Frank. In the business, he serves as a weapons expert and a gun dealer, providing the family with advanced weaponry. He always supplies Tommy, Paulie and Sam with best of the weapons for the job, and with a large range of weapons - from bats, crowbars - to heavy machine weaponry, like sawn-off's, sniper rifles, shotguns, as well as Thompsons, all kinds of pistols, etc. After Tommy testified in the court, he was arrested and sentenced to prison with other gangsters.

Ralph[edit]

  • Introduced in: Molotov Party
  • Voiced by Jeff Gurner

Ralph was the Salieri family's resident car mechanic. He was shown to be quite adept at repairing, tuning and breaking into vehicles, but knows relatively little about everything else besides cars. This made him a target of mockery by his peers, especially since he suffers from stuttering. What happens to Ralph after Tommy agrees to testify is unknown, but is most likely to have been given some time in jail for his involvement as the family's mechanic as well as car supplier.

Don Morello[edit]

  • Introduced in: Intermezzo 1.
  • Killed in: Cremé dé la Cremé.
  • Voiced by: John Doman

Morello was born on Sicily. At some point, Morello became a close friend of Don Salieri and both served as Don Peppone's two most trusted caporegimes. However, in 1921, Don Peppone was killed in a deal gone awry and Morello and Salieri blamed each other for the death of the Don. They decided to split Lost Heaven into two sections: while Morello operated in the East Side of Lost Heaven, Salieri operated in Little Italy. He eventually gained power as he is greatly helped by his brother Sergio and has connection with the City Councilor, because of this he has a big influence in the city. He tries to extend into Salieri crime family territory but resulted a mob war between the two families. However, he ultimately destroys everything he`s involved in through his overly brutal behavior. In 1935, Salieri planned to assassinate Morello while he is in the opera house in Central Island watching the play Othello, however it ended earlier than Tommy and the others expected but the pursuit was done as planned, chasing him through the countryside.

Depending on the player's actions, Morello can either be shot down in a plane while attempting to escape from Lost Heaven, pushed off the bridge, or be killed from a drive-by shooting.

Lucas Bertone[edit]

  • Introduced in: Fairplay
  • Voiced by: Jeff Gurner

Lucas Bertone was a car mechanic who offered services for the mob, specializing in various luxury vehicles. He operates a shop opposite the Guiliano Bridge, to which the player can visit as an optional side objective. He possesses a big knowledge of cars.

Luigi[edit]

  • Voiced by Paul Scannapieco

Luigi is the bartender at Salieri's Bar. He is the father of Sarah. He is a kind man, who has many conversations with Tommy and later he becomes his father-in-law. He appears in nearly every mission, behind the table, waiting for customers. He usually tells Tommy to check back later, when they can have an interesting and informative conversation.

Tommy didn't testify against Luigi, since he was his father-in-law and he wasn't involved in any criminal activity. He lived to an old age.

Sarah[edit]

  • Introduced in: Sarah (though she is first seen working at the bar in Molotov Party)
  • Voiced by Cara Buono

Sarah Angelo (also known as Sara) is Luigi's daughter. Tommy escorts her home in Sarah (mission) and protects her from a street gang. Sarah then invites Tommy into her apartment at the end of the mission Sarah gives Tommy alcohol for the pain shortly after they have sex. Here, Tommy realizes he can spend the rest of his life with this woman.

In conversations with Frank and Paulie, Tommy expresses some doubt on whether he will be able to maintain any future relationship with Sarah while he is working for Don Salieri, committing crimes and murdering rivals. For example, at the and of Better Get Used To It, he wonders what his mother or Sarah would think if they saw him shoot the thug in the car. However, they develop a relationship which evolves throughout the game, and eventually they get married and have a daughter. This relationship blossoms in Sarah, and is touched on in other missions, such as A Trip To The Country, Bon Apetit and in the epilogue. Sarah appears for a moment after the race in Fairplay.

After Sam's death, Tommy, Sarah, and their daughter had to flee Lost Heaven and they left for Europe, and Tommy later returns to talk to Det. Norman. After agreeing to testify, Tommy is sentenced to 8 years in prison from which Sarah and her daughter could not visit him for their own protection. In 1946, Tommy is released and reunited with his wife and their daughter and moved to the Empire Bay (as part of his deal he made for his testimony). On September 25, 1951, Tommy was murdered on their front lawn.

Sarah is most likely a reference to Lorraine Bracco's character Karen Hill in the 1990 movie Goodfellas. During the Beta version of Mafia, Sarah was to be a blonde. She was later, changed to a Ginger, then to her current brunette hair.

Bobby[edit]

  • Introduced in: Fairplay

Bobby is the gate guard for the Lost Heaven racing track night shift, and is a friend of Ralph who also bet on the local driver and helps Tommy in his scheme. His assistance is needed in the mission "Fairplay".

Michelle[edit]

  • Introduced in: Fairplay
  • Killed in: Sam mentions in 'The Death of Art' that he has killed her though he does not mention the precise time.
  • Voiced by Laura Maxwell

Michelle was a prostitute and a good friend of Tommy's wife Sarah. She congratulates Tommy after his win in "Fairplay" and turns out to be "The Whore" in mission 8, which has the same name. Frank tells Tommy that Michelle has been leaking information to Morello which has cost Salieri money and men. When Tommy finds her having a bath in her room at the brothel, she begs with Tom not to kill her and explains that Morello had threatened to kill her brother and she decided to save his life by providing Morello with information on Salieri (though this explanation is difficult to hear due to an inner monologue by Tommy at exactly the same time). Under Tommy's request, she leaves the city, never to return; however in "The Death of Art" it is revealed that she failed to heed Tommy's sage advice and had returned to the city. Her reappearance makes the Salieri family suspicious of Tommy. Sam reveals he enjoyed murdering Michelle, shocking Tommy. After Michelle's murder, Salieri decides to investigate if Frank is also still alive, as he correctly surmised that Tommy also failed to carry out that assassination as well.

Big Biff[edit]

  • Introduced in: Better Get Used To It

An informant for the Salieri Family who usually hangs out in Chinatown. He informs the player of the gang's base of operations in "Better get used to it" and tries to help the player find Frank in "Omerta". In the 'You Lucky Bastard' mission Don Salieri mentions that Biff informed him of Sergio's mistress, who is later killed in a botched assassination attempt to kill Sergio by planting a bomb under his car.

Little Tony[edit]

  • Introduced in: Omertà

Is always loafing on the Central Island, near the Museum. He is a good stoolie, and he has connections with the cops and in the court. There is also a dog during the mission that hangs around near where Little Tony is.

Big Stan[edit]

  • Introduced in: Omertà

While finishing the mission "Omerta". the player has a choice to visit Lucas Bertone, who says that he has a job for him. The job involves Thomas Angelo to travel to the Black Cats Bar in the Works Quarter and "teach Big Stan a lesson". Upon arriving, Stan does not seem intimidated, and they get in a fight. Eventually, he gives up, begs for mercy, and flees. He is never seen again after that.

Billy[edit]

  • Introduced in: Sarah.
  • Killed in : Better Get Used to It.

A street punk who harasses and sexually assaults Sarah on her way home from working at Salieri's bar. Tommy hunts him down in the mission "Better Get Used To It." However, as he is the son of an important politician, his death creates quite a commotion, and a problem for Tommy. Though Billy was actually shot to death by Paulie, all the other characters accuse Tommy of his murder, likely because Tommy is identified at Billy's funeral and was with Paulie at the time of the murder.

Johnny[edit]

  • Introduced in: Better Get Used To It.
  • Killed in: "The Priest"

Johnny is Billy's friend who somehow lives though his ordeal with Tommy in Better Get Used To It and brings the City Councilor and all of the corrupt politicians down hard on Don Salieri. He is seen again after Tommy, through pure coincidence, stumbles into the church where Billy's funeral is being held. Though he vanished from the church after identifying Tommy, his death may have been insinuated in the gun fight that followed as he may have been represented by one of the generic gangsters that Tommy kills in the church. Later when Salieri tells Tommy that the City Councilor must be killed after "the boy". This may be reference to Salieri wanting Johnny killed.

Joe[edit]

  • Introduced in: Omertà

A reluctant informant who gives Tommy a ton of snappy backtalk before telling him about Frank and the accounting books in "Omerta." He can be found not far from Lucas Bertone's shop, under the Giuliano Bridge with 2 other men. Shooting him or beating him with a bat will get him to talk. Joe had a fight with "wiseguys" at a bar, They knocked him out and continued to beat him to death for his bad attitude.

Salvatore[edit]

  • Introduced in: Visiting Rich People.

Salvatore is the best safe cracker in Lost Heaven, and reputed for unlocking every safe in America. He assists Tommy in the mission Visiting Rich People by opening the safe in the Prosecutor's office. He mentions that he had inherited expertise in safe cracking from his grandfather.

William "Bill" Gates[edit]

  • Introduced / Killed in: A Great Deal.

Bill is introduced as a whiskey dealer from Kentucky who arranges a deal with Paulie. His part is very minor, as he gets shot almost immediately after Tommy meets him and tries to order the deal. However, it turns out that he is not from Kentucky. In fact, he is just a small time thief who stole from Morello and tried to quickly resell it, which is why the gangsters came to hunt him down.

Pepe[edit]

  • Introduced in: Bon Appetit.

Pepe is the owner of a fine Italian Bar and Pizzeria in Lost Heaven. His restaurant is the personal favorite dining spot of Don Salieri. In the mission "Bon Appetit!" Tommy accompanies the Don for a lunch at Pepe's, though the situation turns rapidly downhill once they finish their meal as Morello's men pull up and destroy the restaurant in an assassination attempt on Don Salieri's life. However, Pepe survives the ordeal, and receives some money from Don Salieri to fix up his restaurant.

Carlo[edit]

  • Introduced / Killed in: Bon Appetit.

Salieri's double-crossing driver. He called in sick the day when Morello attempted to assassinate Salieri. Tommy hunts him down for retribution. Again, there is no mention as to whether or not this is the same Carlo as Lucas' friend who wants Tommy to beat up Stan in "Omerta." He is a reference to Paulie Gatto, a character in The Godfather who called in sick the day and informed for a rival family and his Don, Vito Corleone was nearly killed in an assassination attempt. Peter Clemenza and Rocco Lampone are given the order to kill him. Paulie is later shot three times in the back of the head by Rocco in a car later in the film.

The City Councilor[edit]

  • Introduced in: The Priest
  • Killed in: Happy Birthday

Morello helped him get into politics and is therefore a big supporter and friend of the Morello Family. He is also Billy's father. Frank first mentions the city councilor in mission, "The Whore" and he is later seen attending Billy's funeral in "The Priest". After "Fairplay", Lucas Bertone calls Tommy and says he has a large reward for him for helping him win big at the races. (This is the only Lucas subquest that must be done to advance to the next mission). Lucas shows Tommy how to steal a yellow luxury car belonging to an alderman who has been problematic for Lucas. Whether or not this is the same city councilor is unknown.

As a friend of the mayor, the city councilor is a continual thorn in Salieri's side. Later Tommy infiltrates his birthday party on a steamboat and publicly assassinates him as he speaks of his plans to catch the man who murdered his son during a speech before his guests. His death can be referred to the scene in the 1972 hit The Godfather. Michael retrieves a weapon in the bathroom knowing he would be checked before the dinner, only to come back and shoot the rivals at his table.

This is a major event in the chain of Salieri's attack on those who associate with Morello as the implications of this would mean the general power of the two families were now roughly equal.

Sergio Morello, Jr.[edit]

  • Introduced in: Bon Appetit.
  • Killed in: You Lucky Bastard.

Sergio Morello, Jr. is the younger brother and right-hand man of Salieri's rival Don. In some regards he was considered the Morello family counterpart to Frank, acting as the brains of the organization. His uncanny ability to avoid death becomes evident in the mission "You Lucky Bastard" where Tommy is sent to kill him. The campaign to kill to Sergio therefore becomes the longest and drawn out series of missions in the game. This is another major event in the chain, as it marks the death of one of Morello's closest accomplices who had control of the unions in the city; his and essentially Don Morrelo's biggest assets were the dockers union which of course was a very useful trump card. The title mission is referred to when Tommy at long last succeeds at murdering Sergio Morello, he stands over his corpse and utters the words "you lucky bastard". This liquidation paved the way for a complete Salieri family controlled Lost Heaven.

Yellow Pete[edit]

  • Introduced in: Moonlighting.
  • Voiced by Ray DeMattis

A one-armed gunsmith who, despite being off the beaten path, is helpful to the game, and his nickname comes because, according to Paulie, has the yellowest and the stinkiest teeth in town. Although the player only has access to his shop in the last few missions, his arsenal of weapons is very helpful when trying to beat said missions. His shop (though not his body) remains in Freeride mode and is a source of purchasing new weaponry. His shop can be found in the parking lot behind the Twister theater in Western Hoboken.

Lucas' Friends[edit]

  • Introduced in the following missions: 'A Trip to the Country', 'Omertà', 'You Lucky Bastard', 'Election Campaign' and 'Moonlighting'.

There are a number of side quests that Lucas sends Tommy on, who in return is taught how to break into nicer and more elusive vehicles. Some of these missions involve doing a favor for his friends. The first one requires Tommy to warn one someone that the cops are coming for him. The second requires Tommy to beat up a guy named 'Big Stan' on behalf of Lucas' friend Carlo. Other missions include picking up Lucas' friends, one of whom has been shot, and driving them to the house of a doctor; picking up a friend before he is arrested by police; tailing a woman as she makes her way to a guy that owes Lucas money; dumping a car that is being looked for by police, off a cliff; and delivering a package to a guy named 'Big Dick', who later help to defeat some gangsters.

Doctor[edit]

  • Introduced in: A Trip to the Country

The Doctor is a surgeon that worked for the Salieri Family.

In the mission A Trip To The Country, Sam is captured by the Morello's men and the police, who have created an alliance to destroy Salieri, and is nearly tortured to death. After Paulie and Tom rescue him he is taken to the house of the Family's doctor. In the sub quest offered by Lucas after the Omerta, Tommy must collect two of Lucas' friends, one of whom has been shot, and drive them to the same doctor.

Priest[edit]

  • Introduced in: The Priest

  • Born:May 2, 1925
  • Introduced in: The Old Country (Sicily)

Vito Antonio Scaletta was born in San Martino, Sicily in 1925, into a very poor family. A few years later, his father decided that they should move to America where they can start a new life. Sadly - even in their new-found home in Empire Bay - they couldn't escape poverty. While in school, Vito met a boy named Joe Barbaro, who eventually became his best friend.

When they attempted to rob a jewelry store, Vito was caught and was forced to join the army as he didn't want to spend time in jail. When Vito returns home, he discovers that his father left his family in a massive debt. With no other options left, Vito turns to crime along with Joe.

At the start of the final chapter Per Aspera Ad Astra, Vito had mentioned how the Mafia brought him wealth, women and respect; However, he also mentions that it also brought prison, unsecured lifestyle and the blood of his friends. By the end of the game as he realizes that Joe will be killed, Vito finally understands the meaning of his life and the most important lessons as he lost his parents, his sister no longer wants anything to do with him, got his house burnt down, watched Henry get slaughtered and finally lost his lifelong friend Joe: all because of the path he choose of living a life of crime and being a member of the Mafia.

Joe Barbaro[edit]

  • Born: November 23, 1924
  • Died: September 26, 1951 (Age 26)
  • Introduced in: Home Sweet Home

Joe Barbaro is a career criminal and lifelong friend of Vito Scaletta. Brash and unpredictable, Joe can seemingly make trouble out of nothing. As a child, Joe was the neighborhood bully. He met Vito when the younger boy offered to fight him for a place in his gang. Over the next 10 years, the pair of them made a great team: rational Vito keeping wild Joe in check as they enjoyed a life of petty crime. The pair became closer than brothers and trusted each other with their lives. As Joe grew older, he lived larger, with strong booze, fast cars and loose women. Naturally, moving up the criminal ladder was the perfect way for him to feed his vices.

When Vito returns home on leave from the war, Joe finds him and, using his new-found criminal connections, gives him forged discharge documents to ensure that Vito doesn't have to return. After Vito's father died, his debts to local loan sharks were passed on to his family. Joe convinces Vito to join him in the Mafia to settle his father's debts before the loan sharks come after his family. Joe and Vito become 'Made Men' in the Falcone crime family at some point in 1951.

By the end of the game when Carlo Falcone was killed by Vito, because of a deal Leo made for him, Joe is taken to another car with two of Vinci's hitmen as the trio go to celebrate Falcone's murder at the Cathouse. The car goes to the path of the morgue. Leo apologizes to Vito, who realizes that Joe will be killed as he wasn't a part of the deal.

Henry Tomasino[edit]

  • Born: July 17, 1911.
  • Died: September 24, 1951 (aged 40)
  • Introduced in: Enemy of the State
  • Killed in: Exit the Dragon

Henry Tomasino (1911–1951) was a Soldato in the Clemente crime family, and later the Falcone crime family. He helped Vito Scaletta and Joe Barbaro immerse into Empire Bay's criminal underworld.

Henry was the son of a Sicilian mobster, along with his six brothers. He was sent to America in 1931 to escape Mussolini's clampdown on the mafia. Silvio Tomasino, Henry's father, feared his son would either be drafted into the army or locked up, so he sent his son to the America. In Empire Bay, Henry came under the protection of Alberto Clemente, an old family friend.

Mr. Wong had dealt heroin to Henry, Vito, and Joe earlier in the game, though Mr. Wong hadn't double crossed Vito or Joe. Wong later revealed that Henry was a rat and was working with the Feds. However, when they drive home, Joe doesn't seem to believe it, and says he doesn't even want to hear about it.

The Empire Bay Triads murdered Henry because their inside connection in the Bureau of Narcotics told them that he had been working for the government. It is possible that Henry started working for them after the fall of the Clemente family. Leone Galante later seems to confirm to Vito that Henry was a rat (This could be explained by the fact that Mr. Wong claims Henry is an informant for the Bureau of Narcotics. In the early 1950s, there was very little cooperation between the FBI and the Bureau of Narcotics, due to the fact that Harry Anslinger, a Narcotics agent, publicly spoke out about the existence of the Mafia at a time when J. Edgar Hoover, the FBI's director, was claiming that it did not exist). It is heavily implied that Henry was working with the feds, though it is possibly a lie made up by the Triads as a way to justify his death. In Per Aspera Ad Astra, Leo states "He was working for the Feds! He was a fuckin' rat. That's why Mr. Chu's people did what they did."

After Galante's confirmation of Henry's partnership it shows the plans of the FEDs aim to wipe out the mafia in Empire Bay. At the end of the game Clemente's and Falcone's families are wiped out leaving the Vinci's and the Triads as the main families of Empire Bay. Henry, who worked for Clemente was picked up by the FEDs after the death of Clemente and his family which the FEDs had now felt it gave them the chance to wipe out the other families. The FEDs may have promised Henry redemption had he successfully wiped out the Falcone family and the Triad family however Henry may have been used by the FEDs and was a sacrifice so that his death may spear Vito and Joe to take revenge on his death with the Triads which would affectively plunged the main families of Empire Bay into a war.

Leo Galante[edit]

  • Born: April 7, 1877
  • Introduced in: Time Well Spent

Leo Galante is a consigliere to Frank Vinci and his closest friend. He meets Vito in prison, teaching him how to fight and cutting four years from his sentence, becoming a father figure to Vito. He was released in early 1946, where he managed to shorten Vito's sentence for almost 4 years, releasing him in 1951. Marked down for death by Falcone, Vito attempts to warn Leo of his upcoming assassination by Henry. Two different outcomes are possible: If Vito is seen by Henry, he cuts a deal with him to let Leo live, if he is not, they just drive off without Henry knowing it was Vito who came to Leo's rescue. This has no impact on the further outcome of the story: after Vito takes him to the station, he leaves town forever. To return the favor, he gives Vito a lifeline in chapter 15 when everyone in town is out to kill him.

He later introduced Vito to Falcone Family boss Carlo Falcone and attended the ceremony where Carlo "made" Vito and Joe into the family. Carlo and Eddie then ordered Vito and Joe to kill Clemente and his top guys at the Empire Arms Hotel. When Vito introduces Henry to Eddie, he learns that Henry wants to defect to Falcone's crew due to Vito and Joe's succession of Clemente's downfall.

Although Henry fails to deliver the death bow, Eddie still brought him into the Falcone Family when he heard Leo had skipped town.

Vito then visits Eddie as he explains to him about what had happen at Chinatown which resulted in a bloodshed war of the Empire Bay mob.

  • Died: September 22, 1950 (aged 40)
  • Introduced in: Supermarket (Joe's Adventures)
  • Killed in: Cathouse (Joe's Adventures)

Rocco only appeared in the Joe's Adventures DLC. Rocco was a high-ranking member of the Falcone crime family under Carlo Falcone, he also probably worked for the Falcone's under Tomaso Moretti before Moretti was killed by Falcone's men. Despite Eddie Scarpa being the underboss and above him in the hierarchy, Rocco treats Eddie like he is below him. It's likely they go back and were friends before Eddie's promotion. Rocco is often left to do the dirty work such as torturing people, though he seems to enjoy this, as Eddie does not want to get his hands dirty. During the last four non-story missions in Joe's Adventures, it is likely that Rocco used him to cover his tracks so he can take over the Falcone family by getting rid of Carlo Falcone, Eddie, and even Joe. He got his men to kill everyone at the cathouse, though most of them were saved by both Joe and Eddie, who both manage to fend off Rocco's soldiers. Joe then enter the construction site and killed all of Rocco's men inside before he finally approaches Rocco himself at the top of the construction site. Rocco warns him that he is aware of Carlo Falcone's new upcoming business of drugs though Joe's ignorance cost him Rocco's life as he threw him off the construction, smashing right on the top of Eddie's car.

Vito and Joe do jobs for Don Clemente through their friend Henry, but when they inquire about becoming made men, Clemente, through Luca Gurino, charges them $5000 for membership. When Vito is arrested, Clemente largely abandons him - Vito's lawyer was only there to ensure that he would not rat Clemente out. Years later, Clemente attempts to muscle in on Carlo Falcone's drug business, prompting Falcone to order his death. Joe and Vito plan to assassinate Clemente during a gang summit at the Empire Arms Hotel, which fails due to Clemente going to the bathroom when the dynamite exploded, although the bombing virtually wipes out the Clemente family leadership. Joe and Vito make a second attempt on Clemente during a chase through the streets of Empire Bay, to which they succeed with Joe Barbaro fatally shooting him. Clemente's family is disbanded after his death.

After Henry Tomasino purchases the load of drugs from the Tongs he, Vito and Joe Barbaro sell most of the shipment through their dealer network. Their territory is Hunters Point. The bombers are one of the least encountered gangs in missions, there are only 1 or 2 missions that involve them. From 1950-51 a gang war had broken out between the O'Neill gangs and the Bombers. The war had weakened both gangs, with only the three Italian mafia families profiting by hireing members of the O'Neill gang and the Bombers to attack each other, effectively playing both sides against one another, while behind the scenes making thousands dollars from the event.

The Greasers are a gang in Mafia II led by Billy 'Bones' Barnes. The Greasers are the "rebelling youth" of the 1950s. They only appear in the 1950s segment of the game. The Mafia families hate the Greasers, due to the reason that they distribute drugs in Empire Bay, but there have also been some deals between the Greasers and Mafia families. The Greasers drive hot rod style cars and wear leather jackets and denim pants. Their leader is an ex-soldier. They hang out in the Empire Bay Forge.

The Fake Cops[edit]

  • Introduced in & Killed in: Sea Gift

After buying kilos of heroin from the Tongs, Vito, Henry and Joe walk into what appears to be a setup, as they are surrounded by police outside of a Tong warehouse. During the confrontation, Henry realizes that the men are not cops at all, resulting in a gun fight between the trio and the fake cops, who are reinforced by men in black suits with automatic weapons who destroy the Tong warehouse and gun down all of its employees. There is never a proper explanation as to which faction these men work for. The radio DJs will report on the shoot out and will confirm that none of the men where actual police officers, but were criminals dressed as officers. Joe suspects that it was the Tongs who arranged the incident, but this is denied by Wong who claims that they would never have destroyed one of their own warehouses and that the incident convinced the Tongs that they should distance themselves from the trio. The identity of the fake cops is therefore never revealed. It is however possible that they worked for Carlo since Henry mentioned earlier that Carlo was intent on being the only drug supplier in the city, getting rid of the competition (including Alberto Clemente and the Tongs among others). Carlo mysteriously also knew about the deal possibly as a result of the fake cops deaths and took a cut of the dealing profits.
