The Colombo Family Who were we? Originally founded in Villabate, Sicily, Italy, the Colombo family has been a long standing empire within their own right. Being well respected in Italy for their business practices, the family was one of five that ran a highly profitable olive oil business for over three decades. That is, until an event known as the fallout. The current generation of the Colombo are descendants of the founders. The Sicilian family has since been disbanded, but upon moving to the great land of opportunity, the remaining Colombos desired to restart their family's pride and honor. Who are we now? Upon arriving in New York, the Colombo family almost immediately set off on honest, hard work. Some of the Colombo family set in as Pharmacists, some as postal workers, and some as Truckers. Before too long, they almost unanimously moved into more risky business in items that were considered less than lawful by some. The Colombo family has continued to add to their numbers and craft alliances to the point that the Colombo family may very well be the largest family in New York (unconfirmed). The Colombo family has since grown quite reputable among friends, and to enemies, very noteworthy. At the end of the day, the Colombo family consider themselves respectful businessmen, even to their enemies and police. Every member, regardless of connection, is referred to as a brother. They've decided that rather than the dated practice of a monarch figurehead, the group adopts a more democratic approach to group decisions, despite still having a "boss". It is unknown if the original members are truly brothers or simply distant cousins who adopted the Colombo last name, but the family has grown close, not just with its members, but others from all walks of life, preparing its members for all facets of the city. The Colombo family now desires big business, but also creating opportunities for those both in and outside of the family to be a part of a bigger plan. What is our code of ethics? The Colombo family is, and will always be, a respectful democracy of businessmen. Their most important consideration will always be the well being of their family members, followed then by the well being of their allies, and finally their business assets themselves.The Colombo family has a mistrust of the legal system, considering them to be misguided and nosey, but has a level of respect for their members with the potential of use when necessary (or rather, required). For small person gangs, the Colombo family withdraws their involvement completely. For individual merit and desires, the Colombo family has great care for and usually try to consider, so long as the wants and needs do not violate the family's interests. The gun, ultimately, is a tool. The tool is used by the individual. If an individual can not first master his own self control, then how can one be expected to be in control of the tool. Perhaps it is the tool that controls him. The Colombo family's stance on the use of guns are typically reserved for only absolute necessary situations. The Colombo always calls upon his brothers before making use of a gun unless his life is in immediate danger, to which, he traditionally still calls on his brothers. Respect is well within the Colombo's code of ethics, and all decisions regarding the use of a gun outside of the previous reason are typically made as a group. Each member holds the other accountable. Because of this, the Colombo family has thrived and grown larger than they originally ever could have thought. NEWS HEADLINES: Huge Traffic Collisions, Colombos Involved? Possible Deaths For final release following NDA, on the first of June, 2019, a 16 car pileup, one of the largest this city has ever seen, occurred in the Hills of this fine city. Residents reported gunshots, claims of automatic weaponry, and many, many explosions. Police arrived on the scene and found gunshot wounds in the Colombo Family Head's house, registered to a mister Anthony Colombo. No bodies were ever recovered, only the remains of mister Colombo's blue Ford Mustang. The Colombo house since layed vacant, albeit many bullet holes in the masonry of the house from the presumed battle which occurred on that day, until finally seized and repossessed due to long since unpaid property taxes. It is unclear if any of the former Colombo family were killed in the action and the bodies disposed of, or if they simply managed to escape to live out the rest of their lives celebrating the successes obtained under mister Colombo's leadership. The citizens of this city have each formed their own conspiracies on the whereabouts of each of the former Colombo family, but according to an anonymous letter addressed to this news station found this morning, one of the last remaining original Colombo, Jimmy Colombo, has since taken the mantle of Don (Boss) in Anthony's absence. Since then, he has taken up the remains of the Colombo assets and formed his new famiglia, donning his brother's original last name. What may come is still yet to be seen, but stay reading dear reader, the future has yet to be written.

The Barone Family This is the structure of the Barone Family History The Barone Family as it is no known was started by a man named Alfredo "Freddie Ghost" Capizzi under the name Capizzi family. Freddie was ousted by another crime family based in Chicago called the Ferraro family. Freddie used to work for the Ferraro Family as a capo. after a conflict with his boss Freddie was on the run for Ferraro family hit men. after a year of running from hit men Freddie was finally catching a break, seeing as the Ferraro family were too busy trying to take care of their own business rather than pay for hit men. Freddie stopped having to run from Bruno Ferraro's hit men. After settling down in New York City Freddie started his first rackets. After a few months of running his business with some new fellas some of the old wise guys he was running with in the Ferraro family started showing up at his doorstep telling him that Bruno had fucked everything up. Fast forwarding a few years Freddie had a good thing going but there was trouble on the horizon. Things started going bad with the Fanucci family who wanted the commission to start allowing drugs trafficking, but Freddie being an old school boss wouldn’t allow it. Vincent Fanucci saw that with Freddie having all the political and justiciary backing in the commission there was no way he could move forward in the drug trafficking business without his wise guys getting arrested left and right so Vincent devised a plan that would see the Capizzi family run out of town. Vincent was going to take out the entirety of the Capizzi families leadership. First was underboss Angelo “Joey Strings” Dafirenze he was kidnaped for ransom but Freddie wouldn’t budge so Valentino Fanucci executed Joey on the spot. Next were the capos of the Capizzi family, but one named Vincenzo Barone got tipped of that the Fanucci family was coming for him. Vincenzo Ran out of the city for a while only getting back when word came the Fanucci’s weren’t doing so great. After the capos were gone the Fanucci’s went for the don himself and shot him 16 times while getting his groceries with his brother Sonny Capizzi. This is where our story begins with the Fanucci’s gone Vincent is once again looking to make a name for himself in the city with his trusty friend Antonio Capizzi son of Alfredo Capizzi.
