    Welcome to the beautiful city of Veronica: magnificent, multi-ethnic, metropolitan, a veritable Mecca of the business world, and home to the Valleti Mafia...

    The Valletti Mafia is a generation’s old organized crime empire run by the infamous and wealthy Valletti family. The Valletti family itself is known for being sharp-dressed sharp-witted, eccentric, and profoundly complex if not markedly dysfunctional. The mafia’s activities include protections racketeering, loansharking, arms and drug trafficking, bootlegging, brothels, and illegal gambling. Their central drives are profit and influence but they do follow a loose moral code and refrain from exacting unnecessary harm on innocent civilians or taking part in businesses known for unconscionable human rights abuses (i.e. human trafficking). That being said, if you cross them or get in their way don’t hope for mercy. They’re ruthless where it counts. Don’t hope for much help from the law either. The police and other organizations have been vainly trying to shut the Valletti mob down for decades and never succeeded. If you’re looking for them know that an image of class is maintained by all of the upper members and they are identifiable by their simple dark designer clothes. They differ from traditional mob families in that they know the potential of untapped resources. As a result they have a commitment to education and gender equality among their members. Many of the members have been known to be as young as 18 when they entered into their position in the mafia.


    Recent troubles have included small power disputes and the increasing clout of the rival Mirralli Mafia. The Mirralli Mafia has a very similar structure to the Valletti Mafia but little else is known about them. In addition, there have been whispers about the FBI becoming increasingly interested in the Vallettis and suspicions regarding undercover agents are high. Nonetheless, the rising Mirralli status and the FBI rumors have put the Vallettis in a wary position of guarding their empire more closely than ever before. All of this comes at a somber time considering the recent death of esteemed capo Cyprus "Star-Tooth" Valletti, the head of the mafia's bootlegging operation. High expectations have been levied on his replacement but there only time will tell.

    The Hierarchy:
    Boss: The head of the family with absolute control over the entire mafia. This individual, typically well past middle-age, is looked to as a source of wisdom and authority. They must affirm mafia plans before they are to be carried out and they can promote/do away with any other member they wish. They're expected to uphold tradition.
    Underboss: Son or daughter of the boss and future inheritor of the mafia. Chosen by the boss, they work directly with the boss and are often consulted in making decisions for the mafia.
    Capos: A group of roughly one dozen close relatives of the boss or and underboss. Each runs a specific faction of the business (i.e. drug trafficking) and have many soldiers and associates answering to them. They report back to the boss or underboss. They are recognized for their business formal style of dress, class, and extensive knowledge of their trade.
    Soldiers: The highest position in the mob that need not be a blood relative of the boss. They are full time workers in the criminal activity of the mafia. They are respected for their dedication but deal directly in very dangerous situations. Their numbers can be quite large depending on the size of the mafia.
    Associates: Like soldiers, but don’t work as directly with the mob as others and aren’t considered formal members. They typically have a legitimate and legal source of work as well. Their safety is not as important to the mob as others, although they might pay to have the mafia's protection. At the same time they are less likely to be targeted by rival mobs or begrudged victims. An example of an associate might be a bar-owner who allows their business to be used as a base of operations by the mob.
    Employees: These are employees of the mob for completely legal purposes such as chauffeurs, body guards, and accountants. Their loyalty and secrecy is expected but they typically are not bothered by the police.

As he grew older he would sneak a listen at the meetings of the boss and the underbosses and learned all that he could about the business. not very often would he get caught but he did and he paid for it in various and sundry way. He life was good, he lived comfortably and had all that he wanted at his finger tips. Finally he graduated high school and decided that the best way to serve the family was to get an education at a higher level, so he went to law school which the Vallettis were all too happy to pay for. while in law school he took several martial arts and became a very competent hand to hand fighter. He also became very efficient at using melee weapons such as swords or knives and staffs or staff like weapons. While learning martial skills Benny thought that it would be prudent to learn how to use a simple handgun and as well became quite efficient at it. He obtained his license a the age of 25 and moved back with his family and entered in to the mafia. For the last two years he has worked his way up, with the little help of being blood related to the family, to the position of Capo and more specifically the overseer of the arms dealings of the family.
