Image and Name Details History

Main Character - Tommy

Height: About 5'11"
Hair: Brown, coiffed Hair

  So, who is the lead character and why should we care about him? The lead dude is, well, Tommy a guy who has just been double-crossed by his girlfriend. Well, in classic videogame fashion, the lead character is a strong, silent type. And what's more he doesn't have a name, so you are able to enter the name of your choice (preferably your own), thus making you the lead character. He's about 5' 11", sports brown, coiffed hair, wears baggy pants and a leather (or maybe suede) jacket. He never says much, but he can be an absolute terror, if you know how to handle him...


8-ball

Age: 35
Height: 6'3"
Race/Nat'l.: Black
Hair: Shaved Head
Build: Very Well Built

  8-Ball is the Player's first contact in the game. He is an explosives expert that ended up in jail after one of his devices blew up on a job before he had placed it properly. As a result his hands are bandaged so he has trouble driving or using a weapon.
Despite his huge frame, 8-Ball is a softly spoken character that rarely engages in violence. However, he has no qualms about supplying explosive devices and boobytraps to his primary clients, the Liberty Mafia.
He has been a long time friend of Luigi and can often be found at Luigiís club where he is a hit with the working girls. Being the only black associated with the Leone family every body knows his name and he enjoys a certain reputation on the streets.


Joey Leone

Age: 32
Height: 5'11"
Race/Nat'l.: Italian
Hair: Black,Slicked Back
Build: Chunky

  Joey is Frankie's son. As such he commands the respect due his position, whether it is earned or not. His love of motor vehicles has made him focus his area of operations around heists, hijackings and robberies -- in fact anything that might involve vehicles.
The cars he prepares for each job are masterpieces of understated performance and he views each as one of his 'babies.' His base of operations is his well-equipped garage in the warehouse area of the docks and it is always busy with cars being prepared for various illegal applications.
He prefers his overalls to a suit, much to his father's exasperation and often has to be reminded to smarten up before attending family meetings.
He executes robberies and hijackings with ruthless efficiency and although he lacks his father's fiery temperament he is no stranger to brutal violence.
He has a 'relationship' with Misty, one of Luigi's girls.


Luigi "The Snake" Goterelli

Age: 29
Height: About 5'5"
Race/Nat'l.: Italian
Hair: Black, "Poofy" Hair
Build: Slim 

  Luigi is a smooth operator. Velvet tongued and dapperly dressed he is the kind of pimp you could take home to meet your mother -- and he'd probably have her working the streets that by sundown!
Small of stature, Luigi probably developed his beguiling charm to survive the tough streets of Liberty but now he has the protection of the Mafia and a popularity gained from the high standard of the service he provides, he has an air of the untouchable about him.
  Now he's at the top of the pimping ladder he can afford to treat his girls well and, for the most part, they all genuinely like him. This has the effect of creating a harem-like feel to Luigi's club with the punters feeling like they are receiving a personal favour rather than paying for a service.
  He is so well liked by his hookers that it isn't unknown for jealous rivalry to flare between girls that are vying for his affections and the position of 'top bitch.' He is a long time friend of 8-Ball.


"Mafia Man"

No Details

Mafiaman, fitting the mafioso stereotype to a "T". It's believed he is in the Leone Family and it seems he uses the gun for more than just pictures...

Misty

No Details

Misty is Luigi's main squeeze, the ho of all ho's. Your first mission is to help her and Luigi out, as you can predict she is probably vital in the storyline.
