A. Introduction
A1. What the &^#$ is this thing?

This guide is here to give you insight into the Grand Theft Auto Series 
universe.  Dealing with the main storyline of the game series, trying 
to make connections wherever possible in order to help you see the 'big 
picture' and how everything in this series is related.  Each game is a 
part of a larger world and, hopefully, this guide will help you see 
that.  If not, then I've failed in life.  I'm sorry.  

This guide will go through a chronological timeline of the games giving 
the stories and general plots of each.  It'll also get into the 
background and some history on the major gangs or groups in the series.  
We'll then deal with main characters related to the storyline of the 
games.  Of course, the guide won't get into every single background 
story on each building or group simply because there would be too much 
data and I'd probably be an old man by the time I finished writing 

GTA Advance is a different story than the other modern GTA games.  Some 
of its cannon but then there are other facts that don't make sense.  
Recently, I purchased a Nintendo DS so I may be able to grab a copy of 
this and review it.  I'll keep you all updated on it.  However, if 
there's currently something that you feel is important to the general 
storyline then email me and I'll try to include it.

Please note that this guide contains as much information as possible 
about the Grand Theft Auto series storylines.  That means SPOILERS!  
It's all discussed here so if you want to be surprised than you 
shouldn't read any further.  Go play the games and come back.  I'll 

OK, you done?  Good.  Now we'll continue.

This guide will be a comprehensive look at the Grand Theft Auto series 
but will not include GTA 1, GTA London, or GTA 2.

A2. Why not GTA 1, GTA London, and GTA 2?

The main problem with these games is that they don't have a fixed year.  
It isn't specified in 1 or 2.  Yes, London is set in the 60's but it 
follows the ideas and flow of the 1st series of games.  The Grand Theft 
Auto 1 series/era if you will.  GTA III was basically the start of the 
"true" series and storyline aspect.  Also, GTA 1 doesn't have a lead 
character.  So my description would be "some guy runs around doing jobs 
for some people".  Now you don't want crap like that in here do you?  
Do you?  You're sick!

Therefore, these games will be left out of this guide.  One day I may 
do some info from them like a 'History of GTA' or something but for now 
they're gone.

A3. Meet the Author

My name is Matthew Vetere and I'm a 24 year old gamer.  I've been 
playing video games since as far back as I can remember.  I originally 
started out on the old Atari systems with my cousins but moved to 
better technology afterwards.  I began my love for writing long after 
I'd finished college and I do regret not taking some writing courses 
when I had the chance.  But I did specialize in Accounting and now work 
for the Town of Markham which is just north of Toronto, Ontario, 
Canada.  It's a good town as they're very environmentally friendly 

My first writing experiences came on a former site of mine as I would 
review wrestling shows, PPVs, and write columns.  I'm still a big 
wrestling fan but video games are my true hobby.  With my recent 
wedding and a new house I have had less time to write but I still enjoy 
it.  This is my first guide experience and I really enjoyed writing it.  
The Grand Theft Auto series along with the Metal Gear Solid series 
would be my favourite games of all time.  They're just 2 wonderful 
series and I'm biting my nails waiting for GTA IV and Metal Gear Solid 
4: Guns of the Patriots for the PS3.  Also note that just because I 
have a PS3 I am not a 'fanboy'.  I think all the current systems have 
great features and the gamers benefit.

Well, I think that covers it for now.  If anyone wants to know more or 
wants me to write about something specific then email me 
([email protected]).  Or you can find me posting on the forum at

A4. Submissions/ Contact Info.

As thorough as I feel that I've been in this document I know that it's 
not perfect.  Nothing is ever perfect.  Therefore, if you see any 
problems or if you have any suggestions then contact me.  If your 
submission is new, better information or just a different idea it'll be 
added and you'll be credited.  Also if you have any comments about the 
series or anything like that.  My contact email is:  

[email protected]

Simple enough email I believe.  I also check it everyday so I should be 
a good contact if you have a question.  Thanks to everyone that has 
emailed me so far and given their feedback or additional information.

B. Locations 

The Grand Theft Auto universe (GTA 3 to GTA Vice City Stories, soon to 
be GTAIV) has been portrayed in five different cities.  They're all 
based on real-world cities and modeled similar to them.  While in the 
game you can notice the similarities between the cities and their real-
world counterparts.  The most significant features will stand out (the 
hills and streetcars of San Fierro, the crime and pollution of Los 
Santos, the Miami Vice carbon copy of Vice City).  Below is a list of 
each city in the GTA universe, some information, and its corresponding 
real-world city.

B-LC. Liberty City                        
Based on: New York City, NY
Population: Approx. 4 million
Comments: Motorcycle operation/ ownership banned in 2001. 
It's composed of three islands attached by tunnels, bridges, and ferry 
lines.  The islands in Liberty City are: Portland, Staunton Island and 
Shoreside Vale. Portland would be the industrial sector of the city.  
It contains the poor neighbourhoods, docks, red light districts, 
warehouses, etc...  Portland is also the home to several criminal 
organizations including the Italian Mafia, Chinese Triads, and the 
Diablos.  Staunton Island would be considered the commercial and 
business sectors.  Containing skyscrapers, a huge park, and a casino 
it's the heart of the city.  Crime gangs like the Yakuza and the 
Yardies find their homes here.  Shoreside Vale is primarily the 
residential area.  Upon entering the island one discovers a huge 
international airport (Francis Intl. Airport).  Moving further along, 
the upper class housing is located on Shoreside Vale but several poor 
neighbourhoods still exist (such as Wichita Gardens).  There is also a 
small industrial area located north of the airport.  Liberty City would 
be the most featured city in the GTA universe. It has been featured in 
6 of the games.  GTA III, Advance, and Liberty City Stories were 
entirely set in the city.  GTA IV will be the next game to be entirely 
set in Liberty City.  Vice City and San Andreas have opening credits 
that start in Liberty City and during each game there are constant 
references back to the city.  San Andreas even has a mission that's in 
Liberty City.

Liberty City is a town ruled by gang violence and corruption.  There 
are numerous gangs based on real-world groups.  Yakuza, Triads, mafia, 
and several others are all based on their real-world counterparts.  
While there are some allies between the gangs the bonds are weak and it 
usually doesn't take much to start a gang war.  No one group can 
control the city for too long as there are just too many gangs in the 
same struggle for power and the strongest usually become the target for 
all other groups.

The city is frequently referred to as 'the worst place in America'.

Games located in city: GTA 3, GTA Advance, GTA Liberty City Stories 

B-LC07. Liberty City (2007)                        
Based on: New York City, NY
Population: Approx. 4 million
Comments: Motto: Worst Place in America 
It's composed of 4 boroughs attached by tunnels, bridges, and ferry 
lines.  The boroughs in Liberty City are: Dukes, Bohan, Broker, and 
Algonquin. Broker is primarily the industrial sector of the city.  It 
contains the poor neighbourhoods, docks, warehouses, etc...  Broker is 
also the home of a small taxi company owned by Roman Bellic.  The Dukes 
borough contains the city's airport known as Francis International.  
Algonquin in the business area for Liberty City.  Skyscrapers and for 
all the major companies as well as the massive Middle Park are located 
here.  Bohan is the smallest borough in the city and contains mostly 
co-op housing.  To the west of Liberty City is the state of Alderney 
primarily dominated by Alderney City in the south and marshlands in the 
north.  Liberty City would be the most featured city in the GTA 
universe. It has been featured in 6 of the games.  GTA III, Advance, 
and Liberty City Stories were entirely set in the city.  GTA IV is the 
next game to be entirely set in Liberty City.  Vice City and San 
Andreas have opening credits that start in Liberty City and during each 
game there are constant references back to the city.  San Andreas even 
has a mission that's in Liberty City.  GTA IV, however, introduces a 
complete redesign to Liberty City which bares an even stronger 
resemblance to New York City.

Liberty City is a town ruled by gang violence and corruption.  The 
Russian and Italian mafias have strong influences on the city as does 
the Triads.  While there are some allies between the gangs the bonds 
are weak and can be broken easily.  No one group can control the city 
for too long without them becoming the target of every other gang.

The city is frequently referred to as 'the worst place in America'.

Games located in city: GTAIV 

B-VC. Vice City                          
Based on: Miami, FL
Population: 1.8 Million in 1986.
Comments: Enormous tax increases in the 1980's.

Vice City is a unique city.  Its southern location provides for warm 
weather all year long while this also positions it close to the 
Caribbean.  Legal and illegal immigration is a huge factor in the 
city's population growth during the 1980's.  Ethnic groups such as 
Cubans, Haitians, Mexicans, and Dominican immigrants all call this city 
home.  Vice City consists of 2 primary islands.  The east island 
contains an enormous beach, a huge shopping mall, clubs, a beach front 
district, apartment complexes, hotels and boating docks.  The west 
island contains most of the immigrant areas with Little Haiti and 
Little Havana being the largest areas.  Escobar Intl. Airport is 
located here as well as the Fort Baxter Military Air Base.  Hyman 
Memorial Stadium attracts crowds with demolition derbies and other 
violent car activities.  The west island is also the business side of 
the city with shipping docks and industrial areas.  Located in the 
centre of the 2 islands are several smaller ones.  Starfish Island 
contains a gated community of wealthy Vice City citizens.  Leafs Links 
Golf Course is located on these islands as well and provides a premiere 
golf experience.

Gangs and racism are big issues in Vice City.  Thanks to its southern 
location and proximity to the Caribbean, most of the gangs are 
immigrants.  Groups of Cubans and Haitians have set themselves up in 
Vice City and developed their own areas within the city.  The primary 
income for most gangs is the sale of drugs.  Most of these drugs get 
imported from the Caribbean and sold at a huge mark up to the Vice City 
population.  Corrupt businessmen and politicians hold the real power 
over the city.  Paying off the law or changing laws and legislation is 
how they maintain that power.

Games located in city: GTA Vice City, GTA Vice City Stories

B-LS. Los Santos                         

Based on: Los Angeles, CA
Population: Unknown.
Comments: Nicknamed the "City of Saints"
Los Santos is a city located in the southeast region of the San Andreas 
state.  Situated close to the Mexican border, immigration and low 
income families are a huge problem for the city.  There are several 
poor neighbourhoods located in Los Santos.  The city also suffers from 
pollution problems, thanks to the industrial sector in the southeast 
corner of the city.  The wind off the ocean pushes this pollution all 
over the city creating a 'haze' that surrounds it.  The early 1990's 
saw the huge introduction of drugs into Los Santos.  Some of the local 
gangs sold the drugs and profited from it while others stayed away from 
the issue.  These gangs suffered since some members betrayed them to 
score on this industry and the drugs basically took over the city.

Gangs are a huge problem for Los Santos.  Each gang has their own 
territory located around their homes or neighbourhoods.  Gang wars are 
sparked very easily between similar ethnic groups or rival gangs.  
Simple insults or accidentally walking into a gang's territory can be 
the spark for gang wars.  The early 1990's were filled with gang wars 
and drug problems for the city.  Corrupt police officers rule the town 
and align themselves with gangs to promote their own agenda.

Games located in city: GTA San Andreas 

B-SF. San Fierro                         
Based on: San Francisco, CA
Population: Unknown.
Comments: Least problematic city in the GTA universe.
San Fierro is located in the northwest region of the San Andreas state.  
San Fierro has a very polished look to it.  The streets are clean and 
the city has no industrial sector so pollution isn't a problem.  There 
is no low income or "poor" area in the city possibly due to high 
housing costs.  San Fierro is a prime business city with hotels, car 
dealerships, and clubs being the main businesses.  San Fierro has a 
large Chinese and Vietnamese population thanks to its position on the 
west coast of the U.S.  These 2 ethnic groups fight with each other but 
not very often.  Chinatown is a hot spot for tourists along with the 
docks on the northern shore.  San Fierro's airport is located to the 
southeast of the city near the US Naval Base.

San Fierro has several gangs but most of them aren't very violent.  
They stick to their own businesses and fronts.  The Chinese gangs would 
be the only large gang in the city with the Rifa (a Hispanic gang) 
following.  Some of these gangs have profited off the drug problems in 
Los Santos.  They produce the drugs in factories in San Fierro and then 
send them off to Los Santos to be sold at a mark-up.  Chinese and 
Vietnamese gangs had several conflicts in the early 1990's but it 
quickly ended with the disappearance of the Vietnamese gangs. 

Games located in city: GTA San Andreas
B-LV. Las Venturas                         

Based on: Las Vegas, NV
Population: Unknown.
Comments: City based around gambling. 
Las Venturas is located in the northeast region of the San Andreas 
state.  Smack dab in the middle of a huge desert, Las Venturas glows 
with neon lights in the night.  The city is powered by a huge 
hydroelectric dam located in the west called Sherman Dam.  Tourist 
gambling and spending is a primary source of revenue for the city.  
Several quiet suburb areas surround the central district called 'The 
Strip' which consists of restaurants, bars, casinos, hotels, and other 
businesses.  A main highway has been built which circles the city and 
helps ease the flow of traffic around the main tourist locations.

In the early 1990's the town was owned by the mafia.  The casino 
business was firmly in their grasp.  However, Chinese Triad gangs moved 
in and develop their own casinos in competition with the mafia.  Gang 
issues arose but settled shortly after.  The mafia's hold on the city 
was eventually weakened and the city has become simply a business 
community with minimal gang influence.

Games located in city: GTA San Andreas

C. GANGS                              
What would be a Grand Theft Auto game without gangs?  Gangs are what 
drive the personalities and motivations of the individuals met 
throughout the GTA universe.  There is no one type of gang in GTA.  
They're very diverse and even the same gang can be totally different 
depending on the time period and location.  Motivations change during 
the years.  Gangs are armed differently, have different goals, and use 
different fronts for their business.  This section will list and 
explain each gang or group that is worthy of such a description.  
Worthiness is based on what influence they have in their city or their 
importance to the storyline. 
C-BA. Ballas
City: Los Santos
Turf: Idlewood, Glen Park
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Any purple clothing.  Hoody, pants, bandanas, etc... 
Vehicles: Majestic (Credit: Dan Justice), Tahoma (Credit: Nitzhi 
Activity: Robbery, drug dealing. 

The Ballas were originally formed somewhere in the 1980's.  It is 
unknown who started the group or where in Los Santos it originated.  
Some theories suggest they started in or around Idlewood or Glen Park 
since those are typically low income, African-American neighbourhoods.  
This puts them close to the Grove Street Families which could also 
point to the hatred between the gangs.  The gang is the most hated 
enemy of the Grove Street Families.  Due to fighting among the Grove 
Street Families and the introduction of drugs the GSF lost much of its 
former glory.  The Ballas were able to take over most of the Grove's 
territory during this time.  In 1992, Carl Johnson returned to Los 
Santos and began helping the Grove Street Families regain territory and 
influence.  The Ballas may have been caught off guard as CJ was able to 
unite the families quickly.  However, due to the defection of Big Smoke 
and Ryder to the Ballas and the murder of several top members, the 
Grove Street Families were almost wiped out.  The drugs the Ballas sold 
were a strong reason for this defection.  Later that year, the Grove 
Street Families returned and were eventually able to wipe out most of 
the Ballas gang.  At present it is unknown whether the Ballas were 
completely taken out or not.

Storyline: The Ballas started gaining strong influence around 1987 when 
the Grove Street Families lost one of its leaders.  Carl Johnson left 
Los Santos after a mistake he made that got his brother, Brian, killed.  
The Ballas began using drugs to expand their influence and control in 
Los Santos.  During this time they seemed to have allied with the Vagos 
and had a drug syndicate set up with the Rifa from San Fierro.  In 
1992, the Johnson's mother was killed and Carl returned.  Carl set out 
to bring the gang back to life.  He managed to get it going but found 
drugs had a big influence over the former members.  The Ballas has 
taken control of much of the city.  However, CJ was succeeding and had 
several key victories over the Ballas.  This was until the Grove Street 
Families were betrayed by Big Smoke and Ryder who defected to the 
Ballas.  Several high ranking members of the Grove Street were killed 
in the incident.  The Ballas re-established themselves at the top of 
Los Santos again.  Later, CJ destroyed the Rifa drug factory in San 
Fierro so the supply to Los Santos and the Ballas would end.  CJ then 
killed Ryder, broke up the drug syndicate and returned to Los Santos.  
He brought together the Grove Street Families again and took on the 
Ballas.  CJ and the Grove Street Families were able to kill Big Smoke, 
Officer Tenpenny, and numerous Ballas members.  Continuing on they took 
over the Ballas' territory.  It is unknown if the Ballas survived and 
if the gang is still around. 

C-BI. Bikers 
City: Vice City
Turf: Small area near Greasy Choppers Bar
Leader: Big Mitch Baker
Clothes/ colours: Leather jackets and vest, blue jeans, bandanas 
Vehicles: Harley-style Motorcycles 
Activity: Security services, protection

The Bikers consist of several war veterans and motorcycle fanatics.  
They act as a family and are very close to one another.  Joining the 
gang is difficult and not taken lightly among the members.  One must 
prove that they're worthy and this usually involving winning a race 
against other bikers and perform several tasks to prove they're worthy 
to be accepted.  Once you're in the group, they will treat you as a 
member of the family.

Storyline: Kent Paul decided that he needed security for a Love Fist 
concert.  So he asked Tommy Vercetti to go get the Bikers and hire them 
as the security.  Tommy first had to become a member of the gang before 
they would do the security.  So Tommy performed several tasks for the 
gang including getting Big Mitch's bike back after it was stolen.  
Eventually, Tommy is accepted into the gang and Big Mitch agrees to 
provide security for the concert which goes off without any problems. 
C-BLFT. Blood Feather Triads 
City: San Fierro
Turf: Chinatown
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, traditional red and white Chinese 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Possibly involved in gambling
The Blood Feathers were a section of the Chinese Triad group in San 
Fierro.  Little is known about them as the gang was completely wiped 
out by the Da Nang Boys, a Vietnamese gang, who moved to San Fierro in 
the early 1990's.  The Blood Feather Triads appeared to have been 
targeted first by the Da Nang Boys as they were the weakest group of 
the Triads.  It didn't appear that the Blood Feathers had much control 
or influence over the Triad operations or in the city of San Fierro.

Storyline: CJ and Woozie go to the Blood Feathers in an attempt to 
strengthen their alliance in order to stop the Da Nang Boys.  CJ and 
Woozie were too late as the Da Nang Boys had already killed all the 
Blood Feathers gang members.  They attacked CJ and Woozie who managed 
to escape after a brief chase.  This action by the Da Nang Boys starts 
a gang war between the Triads and themselves.

C-CH. Cholos                       

City: Vice City
Turf: Little Havana
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Gang shirts 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Drug and weapon distribution
In the early 1980's the Cholos controlled the Little Havana area and 
the majority of the illegal business in Vice City.  They were involved 
in drugs, guns, and several other business fronts.  The Cholos were 
involved in a constant war with the Trailer Park Mafia as well as Phil 
Cassidy over their business fronts.  In 1984, Los Cabrones arrived in 
Vice City and started a massive turf war with the Cholos for control of 
Little Havana.  The Cholos fought Los Cabrones off for a short time but 
were eventually wiped out that same year.

Storyline: In 1984 the Cholos had control of Little Havana.  Los 
Cabrones arrived in Vice City and started a turf war with the Cholos 
over Little Havana.  The leader of Los Cabrones, Umberto Robina, 
acquired the help of Victor Vance to assist Umberto and his gang in 
taking out the Cholos.  That same year they were successful and Los 
Cabrones took over. 

C-COC. Columbian Cartel                       

City: Liberty City
Turf: Cedar Grove, Construction Site (Port Staunton)
Leader: Currently unknown, 1998 - Miguel, 2000 - Cisco, 2001 - Catalina 
and Miguel
Clothes/ colours: Navy blue pants, Hawaiian shirts 
Vehicles: Cartel Cruiser 
Activity: Drug distribution
In 1998, the Cartel was led by Miguel (who leads in GTA III) and seemed 
to be just starting out in Liberty City.  They were heavy into the drug 
business, which was their primary business front.  In 2000, the 
Columbian Cartel was lead by Cisco.  It is unknown why or how Miguel 
fell from leader of the Cartel during this time.  They were primarily 
involved in the drugs industry under Cisco's leadership as well.  A man 
by the name of Mike started working for the Cartel during the same 
year.  Mike began working with the Cartel after he had killed and beat 
up several of the Cartel's high officials.  Cisco, not knowing of the 
murders, hired Mike for his brutality.  The Cartel started some bad 
blood with the Yakuza by kidnapping the Yakuza leader's niece.  She was 
eventually broken out by Mike.  Cisco is eventually killed by a man 
that Mike thought was dead.  In 2001, Catalina and Miguel took over the 
Cartel.  They used the Cartel to sell their new drug, SPANK, to Liberty 
City.  Catalina, however, was still obsessed with ending her former 
boyfriend's, Claude's, life and eventually was killed by Claude along 
with several high ranking members in the Cartel.  It's unknown what 
happened to the Cartel after that.

Storyline: In 1998, the Cartel wasn't big time just yet.  They were led 
by Miguel who would later lose his power to Cisco and then regain it 
thanks to Catalina.  They were already into the drug business.  In 
2000, Cisco hired Mike for the Cartel and Mike would work with them 
until he started to work for the Yakuza.  Mike then went back to the 
Cartel when Cisco said that he had information about Mike's friend's 
(Vinnie) killer.  Cisco was then murdered by Vinnie himself.  In 2001, 
Catalina and Miguel took over the Cartel.  They used the Cartel to 
distribute their new drug, SPANK.  Catalina also used the Cartel to 
attempt to kill Claude but they were unsuccessful.  Miguel was captured 
by Claude and Asuka.  He proceeded to give up valuable information to 
Asuka as a result of her torture.  Catalina returned to where Miguel 
was captured, killed Miguel and Asuka, and kidnapped Claude's 
girlfriend, Maria.  Claude followed them and managed to kill Catalina 
as well as numerous Cartel members.  It is unknown what happened after 
this to the Cartel.

C-COL. Columbians (Vice City)

City: Vice City
Turf: Starfish Island, Diaz Mansion
Leader: Ricardo Diaz
Clothes/ colours: Hawaiian shirts and dark pants. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Protection, drug dealing 
In the mid 1980's the Vice City Columbians became extremely powerful 
and held a great deal of influence over Vice City.  They ruled the 
city.  The leader, Ricardo Diaz, had only been in the country for a few 
years and had a reputation of being a hot head.  He would do anything 
and kill anyone to further the Columbian's business.  They were heavily 
into importing and selling of drugs.  In 1986, however, the Columbian 
gang interfered in a drug deal between the Vance Brothers and Tommy 
Vercetti.  Tommy eventually decimated the Columbians including killing 
their leader, Ricardo Diaz.  It's unknown if the gang regrouped or 
ceased to exist in the following years.

Storyline: Ricardo Diaz was assisted by Victor Vance in 1984.  Victor 
did several jobs for Ricardo and when Victor and Lance left Vice City 
for a short time, Ricardo took over most of their business.  In 1986, 
Ricardo Diaz had learned of Tommy Vercetti's drug deal and sent a team 
to ambush it.  They were successful.  Tommy and the returning Lance 
Vance set out to find who had done this.  Tommy started working for 
Diaz and soon discovered that it was Diaz who broke up their deal.  
Tommy planned Diaz' downfall but Lance jumped the gun and attacked 
Diaz.  He was captured.  Tommy broke him out, they stormed the Diaz 
mansion, killed all of Diaz' men and then killed Diaz himself.  It's 
not known if some of the Diaz' gang members survived and restarted or 
it ended at that point.

C-CULC. Cubans/ Los Cabrones

City: Vice City
Turf: Little Havana
Leader: Umberto Robina
Clothes/ colours: Red bandanas, white shirts, blue pants. 
Vehicles: Cuban Hermes 
Activity: Drug dealing, smuggling

In the mid 1980's, Cuban refugees came to Vice City in increasing 
numbers due to its close proximity to Cuba.  In 1984 a turf war broke 
out between the newly arrived Los Cabrones and the Cholos in Vice City.  
They fought with the Cholos for control of Little Havana and were 
successful.  Between this time and 1986 they began a turf war with 
Haitian refugees in Vice City.  Little Haiti and Little Havana are 
located right beside each other and the pursuit of new territory may 
have been a cause for this turf war.  The war was back and forth with 
neither side getting the upper hand.  However, the Cubans eventually 
crippled their Haitian rivals when several Cubans destroyed a Haitian 
factory.  The Cubans continued on with their business after this.

Storyline: In 1984, Los Cabrones came to Little Havana and started a 
turf war with the Cholos for control of the area.  They managed to wipe 
out the Cholos with the help of Victor Vance.  In 1986, they were in a 
turf war with the Haitians.  The Haitians tried to break up a deal the 
Cubans were making with Ricardo Diaz and the Columbians but Tommy 
Vercetti stopped them.  Umberto Robina, the leader of the Cubans, hired 
Tommy after he'd killed a man that did some jobs for Umberto.  Tommy 
first had to prove himself to Umberto and was successful.  Tommy 
proceeded to help the Cubans steal drugs from the Haitians and then 
destroy the Haitian factory.  It is assumed that the Cubans continued 
along with their business after the turf war.
C-DANB. Da Nang Boys  
City: San Fierro
Turf: Easter Basin
Leader: Currently unknown, 1992 - Snakehead
Clothes/ colours: Regular street clothes. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Shipping, importing of illegal immigrants 
The Da Nang Boys are a Vietnamese gang that moved to San Fierro in the 
early 1990's.  During the move they managed to kill the Blood Feather 
Triads in an attempt to make their mark and seize territory.  However, 
they were quickly killed off by the Mountain Cloud Boys in retaliation 
for this attack.  It's not known if the remaining members returned to 
Vietnam to rejoin the rest of the gang or not.

Storyline: In 1992, the Da Nang Boys attacked the Triad gangs in San 
Fierro.  The Triads questioned themselves on why the Da Nang Boys had 
been on the offensive in recent weeks.  The answer was found to be that 
the entire group was relocating to San Fierro and looking to seize 
territory.  Woozie got CJ to bug the tanker that the Da Nang Boys 
operated from to find this information.  They also found that the 
leader, Snakehead, is arriving in San Fierro and will be on the tanker.  
CJ heads out to the tanker and kills all the Da Nang Boys on the boat 
including the Snakehead.  This ends the group's activities in San 
C-DIA. Diablos                          
City: Liberty City
Turf: Hepburn Heights
Leader: El Burro
Clothes/ colours: Jeans, navy blue jackets, orange or navy blue hats. 
Vehicles: Diablo Stallion 
Activity: Car racing, burglary, small time activities.
The Diablos are a relatively small gang.  They pride themselves on 
being the top street racers of Liberty City.  This causes issues 
between the Yardies gang and themselves since both gangs were heavily 
involved in street racing.  Both gangs are located on separate islands 
in the city but still managed to place hits and attacks on each other.  
The Diablos only have small weapons such as handguns and bats.  Their 
other fronts include burglary and possibly some small time drug 
dealing.  The Diablos started making waves in 1998 on Portland Island.  
By 2001, they controlled Hepburn Heights and the surrounding areas on 
Portland after they won them in a turf war with the Leone Family. 

Storyline: In 1998, the Diablos attacked the Leone Family in Hepburn 
Heights in order to gain control of the area.  The Diablos weren't 
successful, thanks to Toni Cipriani, but after several more attacks 
they were and the Leone Family lost Hepburn Heights, possibly forever.  
In 2001, Claude gets a call from El Burro, the Diablo leader.  He wants 
Claude to work for him but he must prove himself first in a race.  
Claude wins this race and shortly afterwards he performs some minor 
jobs for El Burro before he stops doing business with them.  Later, 
Claude goes to work for the Yardies and in a job for them he guns down 
numerous Diablos members.  This severely hurt the group and its unknown 
if anyone capitalized on this afterwards.
C-FOF. Forelli Family                         
City: Liberty City
Turf: St. Mark's Bistro
Leader: 1986 - Sonny Forelli, Franco Forelli by 1998
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, mafia style 
Vehicles: Sentinel 
Activity: Arms dealing, drug trafficking, protection, loan sharking. 
The Forelli Family is a gang whose power has fluctuated over the years.  
In the mid 1980's they had strong influence over much of Liberty City.  
Attempts at expanding to Vice City would fail and would cause numerous 
Forrelli Family member's deaths.  In 1992, they joined with the Leone 
and Sindacco Families to fund a casino in Las Venturas.  That venture 
would also fail as the Leone's took over, the casino was eventually 
robbed and the Sindacco's would take over from there after the Leone 
Family pulled out.  In 1998, they were losing influence and numbers in 
Liberty City.  The Leone Family killed several more members in turf 
wars involving all three families and the Sicilians.  By 2001, the 
Forelli Family had very little influence in Liberty City and were 
almost wiped out by the Leone Family.

Storyline: In 1986, Sonny Forelli was the head of the Forelli Family.  
He sent Tommy Vercetti down to Vice City to get things rolling down 
there with a drug deal.  The drug deal was ambushed and the money was 
lost.  Tommy promised he would get Sonny's money back but began forming 
his own criminal empire in Vice City.  The Forelli Family attempted to 
take over Tommy's empire and failed.  Sonny along with several Forelli 
Family members were killed.  In 1992, the Forelli Family had a part in 
Caligula's Casino in Las Venturas.  But the Leone Family took over the 
casino, which would eventually be robbed by Carl Johnson and the 
Triads.  By 1998, the Forelli Family had minimal power in Liberty City.  
They were caught in a war with the Sindacco and the Leone Families 
thanks to a group of Sicilians.  The Leone Family, mainly Toni 
Cipriani, killed several Forelli Family members in this conflict.  By 
2001, the Forelli Family had lost a lot of influence in Liberty City.  
Joey Leone started up some bad blood with them but Claude, working for 
the Leone Family at the time, took care of the Forelli men that opposed 

C-GOL. Golfers                 
City: Vice City
Turf: Leaf Links Golf Course
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Regular golfing clothing. 
Vehicles: Caddy 
Activity: Playing golf

The golfers are a group in Vice City that are centered around the Leaf 
Links Golf Course.  They consist of elderly men and women, probably 
retired, in golfing attire who love the club and sport.  They aren't 
particularly violent or well armed, however, they will attack with golf 
clubs and even 9mm pistols if provoked or assaulted.  They will only 
resort to violence if you attack them first or disrupt their golf game.  

Storyline: Tommy Vercetti encounters this group only a few times while 
taking over Vice City in 1986.  They aren't too hostile but on a few 
occasions attack him.  One particular incident happened after Tommy 
Vercetti killed a man and several of his guards on the driving range in 
the golf course area.  Several nearby golfers attacked Tommy but he 
managed to escape them.
C-GSF. Grove Street Families                 
City: Los Santos
Turf: Grove Street
Leader: Carl Johnson (CJ), Sean Johnson (Sweet)
Clothes/ colours: Any green clothing.  Shirts, pants, bandanas, etc... 
Vehicles: Savanna, Greenwood, Blade, Voodoo (Credit: Dan Justice, 
Nitzhi Volganopol)  
Activity: Robbery, land/ property acquisition

The Grove Street Families were originally formed somewhere in the 
1980's.  The Johnson brothers, Sean and Carl, along with Big Smoke and 
Ryder lead the group.  Due to fighting among the family, rival gangs, 
and drugs the Grove Street Family lost much of its influence by the 
early 1990's.  In 1992, Carl returned to Los Santos and began helping 
the Grove Street Families regain territory and influence.  However, due 
to the defection of Big Smoke and Ryder and the murder of several top 
members, the Grove Street Family was almost wiped out.  Later that 
year, the Grove Street Families returned and were eventually able to 
wipe out most of the other gangs in Los Santos.  They allied themselves 
with the Varrios Los Aztecas at this point.

Storyline: The downfall of the gang started around 1987 when a mistake 
by Carl allowed the youngest brother in the family, Brian, to be 
killed.  Carl left Los Santos and went to Liberty City.  In 1992, the 
Johnson's mother was killed and Carl returned.  Upon his return he was 
framed for a cop's murder and found his former gang to have lost 
influence and been broken up through fighting among themselves.  Carl 
set out to bring the gang back to life.  He managed to starting gaining 
influence again but found drugs had become a big problem with the 
former members.  Carl looked to be succeeding until the Grove Street 
Family was betrayed by Big Smoke and Ryder.  Several high ranking 
members were killed in the incident and Sweet was placed in jail.  Carl 
was forced out of Los Santos.  While Carl went around other cities and 
towns in San Andreas he was able to acquire a garage, an airstrip, and 
become a partial owner of a casino.  He killed Ryder and a number of 
individuals that he thought were involved in the drug operation that 
cost him his family and gang.  He returned to Los Santos with new 
allies and was able to take back his neighbourhood.  Sweet was released 
from jail.  Carl and Sweet got the Grove Street Family together again 
and they eventually killed Big Smoke and most of the rival gang, the 
Ballas.  It's unknown whether the family was able to maintain their 
influence in the following years.

C-HAI. Haitians

City: Vice City
Turf: Little Haiti
Leader: Auntie Poulet
Clothes/ colours: Purple bandanas and shirts, blue pants. 
Vehicles: Voodoo 
Activity: Drug dealing, smuggling 

In the mid 1980's, Cuban refugees came to Vice City in increasing 
numbers due to its close proximity to Haiti.  At some point they began 
a turf war with Cuban refugees in Vice City.  The war was very back and 
forth with no one getting the upper hand.  The Haitians were able to 
win several key fights between the gangs; however, the Cubans 
eventually crippled the Haitians when several of them destroyed a 
Haitian factory.  The Haitian gang was not heard from after that point 
and are believed to be either gone or in very few numbers. 

Storyline: In 1986, the Haitians were involved in a turf war with the 
Cubans in Vice City.  The Cubans were aided by Tommy Vercetti in 
several missions.  However, Auntie Poulet used some special potions and 
brainwashing to get Tommy to perform a few tasks for the Haitians.  He 
helped them in several fights with the Cubans.  However, Tommy went 
back to work for the Cubans and blew up the Haitian factory which may 
have crippled the Haitian gang.  It's unknown what happened after this.

Comments: A lot of the dialogue for GTA Vice City referencing the 
killing of Haitians had to be removed or edited in later versions or 
re-releases of the game.  This was due to the Haitian community's 
reaction over the negative treatment of their culture/ group and the 
image it portrayed of them.  But apparently it's ok to reference the 
killing of Italians, Cubans (although the Cubans also had problems with 
this), Columbians, French, etc...  It's a game people, get over it. 

C-LFM. Leone Family                             
City: Liberty City
Turf: Saint Mark's
Leader: Currently Joey Leone or Toni Cipriani, formerly Salvatore Leone 
(formation of family in 80's until 2001)
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, sunglasses, mafia style 
Vehicles: Mafia Sentinel 
Activity: Protection, gambling, prostitution, drug trafficking

Little is known about the Leone Family before the 1990's.  Salvatore 
Leone became the leader sometime in the 1980's after a power struggle 
in the family.  In 1992, they were a third owner of a casino in Las 
Venturas called Caligula's Casino.  This was thanks to Salvatore 
lending the Sindacco Family $5 million as an investment for the casino.  
The Leone Family waited for the right time and that same year they made 
their move.  Taking over the casino, they were able to basically wipe 
out the Sindacco Family.  The Forelli Family sent men after the Leone's 
but they were killed as well.  However, the casino was later robbed and 
it is assumed that the Leone's pulled out of the casino after that 
incident.  The Sindacco's took it over again afterwards.  In 1998, the 
Leone's made further pushes in Liberty City when Toni Cipriani returned 
to the family.  They killed several Sindacco and Forelli Family members 
in a turf war.  They also lost a lot of territory to the Diablos, 
Triads, and Yakuza.  By 2001, the Leone's were in gang wars with the 
Yakuza, Cartel, and Forelli's.  This put a severe strain on their 
resources.  The biggest blow came when Salvatore Leone was murdered by 
a former employee named Claude.  It is assumed that either Joey Leone, 
Salvatore's son, or Toni Cipriani, Salvatore's right hand man took over 
the family.

Storyline: In 1992, the Leone Family took control of Caligula's Casino 
from the Sindacco and Forelli Families.  Retaliation was met with by 
Carl Johnson who was working for the Leone's at the time.  What 
Salvatore Leone didn't know was that Carl was planning a heist on the 
casino and using his access to gather information.  Carl eventually 
robbed the casino and it's believed that the Leone's pulled out of the 
casino at this point or shortly afterwards.  In 1998, Toni Cipriani 
returned to Liberty City and the Leone Family after performing a hit on 
a "made" man in the city in 1994.  Toni helped Salvatore expand the 
Leone's influence by first killing the mayor of Liberty City.  They 
would also end the Sindacco Family in Liberty City and kill a great 
deal of Forelli Family members.  However, they lost territory to the 
Diablos, Triads, and Yakuza during that time.  Toni would eventually 
become Salvatore's right hand man.  By 2001, the Leone's had lost some 
influence in the city but recruited Claude to do work for them.  With 
his help the Leone's were able to eliminate the Triad threat and 
destroy a huge tanker owned by the Columbian Cartel.  Salvatore began 
to believe that Claude had betrayed him.  Salvatore set up a trap but 
Maria, Salvatore's former lover, saved Claude.  Through Maria's 
connections, Claude began to work with the Yakuza.  He had to prove to 
the Yakuza that he was no longer allied with the Leone's and, 
therefore, killed Salvatore.

C-MBR. Mendez Brothers                            
City: Vice City
Turf: Vice City (City-wide influence)
Leader: Armando and Diego Mendez
Clothes/ colours: Light coloured suits/ clothing 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Drug trafficking/ distribution 

The Mendez Brothers were a huge drug cartel that choked Vice City in 
the 1980's.  They were the largest cartel in the city and would kill 
anyone in their way.  The Mendez Brothers supplied the Vice City 
citizens with drugs and were involved in any drug deal that took place 
in the city.  Lead by Armando and Diego they maintained their power 
until 1984 when the group was killed off by the Vance Brothers after a 
turf war was started between them.

Storyline: In 1984, they had a deal setup with the Vance Brothers and 
Jerry Martinez.  The deal went bad and the Mendez Brothers were set to 
kill everyone involved.  Lance managed to talk them into working with 
the Vance Brothers as business partners.  However, this was just a 
setup and they attacked the Vance's.  The Vance Brothers killed the 
Mendez Brothers and most of their bodyguards.  It's believed that the 
group was ended at that point.

C-MCBT. Mountain Cloud Boys (Triads)                  
City: San Fierro, Las Venturas
Turf: Chinatown (SF), Four Dragons Casino (LV)
Leader: Wu Zi Mu
Clothes/ colours: Black suits
Vehicles: Sultan and Stratum (Credit: Nitzhi Volganopol)  
Activity: Casino operating, street racing.

In the early 1990's the Mountain Cloud Boys attempted to bring together 
the Triad groups in San Fierro in order to unite them against a 
Vietnamese gang known as the Da Nang Boys. Located in San Fierro, the 
Da Nang Boys choose the Triad territory as their new area of business.  
The Da Nang Boys killed the entire Blood Feather Triads before the 
Mountain Cloud Boys could ally with them.  As retaliation, the Mountain 
Cloud Boys and Carl Johnson managed to kill several Da Nang Boys 
members in the following attack.  The Da Nang Boys were becoming 
increasingly aggressive because the group was making a full move to San 
Fierro from Vietnam.  The Mountain Cloud Boys lead an attack on the Da 
Nang Boys' tanker out in the bay, north of San Fierro.  Killing all the 
Da Nang Boys within including their leader, Snakehead, the Mountain 
Cloud Boys had ended the threat.  They soon moved primary operations to 
Las Venturas in the Four Dragons Casino.  Facing pressures from the 
Mafia the Mountain Cloud Boys, along with Carl Johnson, were able to 
rob the Mafia's casino and end their threat.  The Mountain Cloud Boys 
would become strong allies of the Grove Street Families. 
Storyline: CJ first meets Wu Zi Mu (Woozie for short) out near Red 
County.  They have a race and CJ ends up winning.  CJ moves to San 
Fierro after winning a garage from Catalina and Claude.  CJ and Woozie 
proceed to team up and face off with the Da Nang Boys after they killed 
the Blood Feather Triads.  In order to gather more information CJ swims 
out to the Da Nang Boys' tanker and planted a bug on their 
communication devices.  Listening in, they found that the entire Da 
Nang Boys gang is moving to San Fierro.  In an attempt to stop them, CJ 
heads out to the tanker and kills the entire gang, frees some refugees, 
and kills the Da Nang Boys' leader, Snakehead.  Afterwards, the 
Mountain Cloud Boys move their main operations to Las Venturas and open 
a casino called the Four Dragons.  They run into problems when the 
Mafia give them a hard time.  CJ performs several tasks to get the 
Mafia off the Mountain Cloud Boys' back.  Eventually, CJ and Woozie set 
up a heist on the Mafia casino and it is successful.  The Grove Street 
Family and the Mountain Cloud Boys become allies. 

C-PUN. Purple Nines                      

City: Liberty City
Turf: Wichita Gardens
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Jeans, purple jackets.
Vehicles: Hoods Rumpo XL 
Activity: Burglary, robbery, drug dealing.
In 2000 or 2001, the Purple Nines started up as a small gang in Wichita 
Gardens in Liberty City.  They mainly dealt with drug dealing of a new 
drug, SPANK, supplied by the Cartel and the Yardies.  The Purple Nines 
were also into burglary and small time robbery.  Unfortunately, their 
turf was originally and currently the turf of the Red Jacks.  This 
started a gang war between the two groups.  The Red Jacks were 
eventually able to wipe out the Purple Nines and end their short 

Storyline: The Purple Nines started up in 2000 or 2001.  They quickly 
tried to take over the territory of the Red Jacks.  Their main front 
was the sale of SPANK supplied by the Columbian Cartel.  The Red Jacks 
decided to enlist the help of Claude in 2001 to deal with the Purple 
Nines problem.  They first got him to kill any Purple Nine he saw on 
the street which quickly decreased their numbers.  Afterwards, there 
wasn't much left for the gang so they decided to have one final battle 
with the Red Jacks and Claude.  Claude and a member of the Red Jacks 
took on the remaining members of the Purple Nines and were able to 
finish them off for good.

C-REGT. Red Gecko Tong (Triads)                  
City: San Fierro, Las Venturas
Turf: Chinatown (SF), Four Dragons Casino (LV)
Leader: Ran Fa Li
Clothes/ colours: Black suits
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Gambling

The Red Gecko Tong's are led by Ran Fa Li.  They're a section of the 
Triads in San Fierro.  In the early 1990's, one of the sects, the Blood 
Feather Triads, were killed by a Vietnamese gang known as the Da Nang 
Boys.  Ran Fa Li and Wu Zi Mu, leader of the Mountain Cloud Boys, come 
together to form a union in the Triad gang to fight the Vietnamese 
group.  They were successful in destroying the Da Nang Boys thanks to 
the help of Carl Johnson.  Later that year, Ran Fa Li became a partial 
owner of the Four Dragons Casino in Las Venturas with the Mountain 
Cloud Boys and the Grove Street Families. 
Storyline: CJ first meets Ran Fa Li when he is introduced by Wu Zi Mu.  
CJ recovers some packages for Ran Fa Li and helps him to leave the 
Mountain Cloud Boys betting shop safely by creating a diversion.  CJ 
also ends up killing off the entire Da Nang Boys gang.  Later on, Ran 
Fa Li becomes a partial owner of the Four Dragons Casino in Las 
Venturas with CJ and Wu Zi Mu.  Ran Fa Li, apparently, is ranked higher 
than Wu Zi Mu in the Triad organization.

City: Liberty City
Turf: Wichita Gardens
Leader: D-Ice
Clothes/ colours: Jeans, red jackets.
Vehicles: Hoods Rumpo XL 
Activity: Burglary, robbery, drug dealing. 
In 2000, the Red Jacks were ruling the neighbourhood of Wichita Gardens 
in Liberty City.  Then in 2000 or 2001 the Purple Nines arrived on the 
scene and staked their claim on the Wichita Gardens area.  The Red 
Jacks and Purple Nines immediately erupted into a gang war for control 
of the area.  The groups had very similar fronts and activities so the 
gang war wasn't just based on territory.  Both distributed drugs on the 
streets so the other gang's activities would cost them profit.  In 
2001, the Red Jacks decided to end the Purple Nines' threat.  A series 
of shoot outs and fist fights broke out and the Red Jacks killed off 
the Purple Nines gang entirely.

Storyline: In 2001, D-Ice, the leader of the Red Jacks, enlisted the 
help of Claude to eliminate the Purple Nines forever.  He first went 
out to the streets and killed every Purple Nines he saw.  This 
decimated the Purple Nines numbers and they decided to make one final 
stand against the Red Jacks.  Claude and a Red Jack member (D-Ice's 
brother) fought with the remaining members of the Purple Nines and won.  
This ended the Purple Nines and established the Red Jacks as the top 
gang (only gang) in Wichita Gardens.

Vehicles: Stallion, Blade, Sabre (Credit: Nitzhi Volganopol)  
Activity: Robbery, drug dealing, drug production. 
Sometime before 1992, the Rifa and the Ballas (Los Santos) allied 
themselves in a business deal.  This was in large part thanks to the 
Loco Syndicate that the Rifa leader, T-Bone Mendez, was a part of.  The 
Rifa would manufacture drugs in San Fierro and then send them to Los 
Santos for the Ballas to sell on the streets.  Both groups profited 
from this and it was the main form of income for the gangs.  However, 
in 1992 the factory was destroyed and T-Bone Mendez was killed.  The 
group is believed to have disbanded or continued on in a weakened 

Storyline: It isn't known when the Rifa gang was formed. They primarily 
manufactured and sold drugs to other groups as well as the Ballas gang 
in Los Santos.  They were lead by T-Bone Mendez.  In 1992, the Ballas 
destroyed the Grove Street Families, their biggest rivals.  One of the 
leaders, Carl Johnson, took his revenge on the Ballas and destroyed the 
Rifa's drug plant so the Ballas could no longer get their supply of 
drugs.  CJ also killed T-Bone Mendez.

the mid 1980's they were in high demand in Vice City because of the 
huge increase in criminal and drug activities.  They will usually 
shoot, before asking questions, at anyone they feel is up to no good.  
These security guards are often chased by police officers.  The reason 
for this is that the police don't see them as a legitimate security 
company and because they randomly shoot at anyone.  It's believed that 
the group uses Escobar International Airport for smuggling activities.

Storyline: Tommy Vercetti encounters these guards several times in Vice 
City in 1986.  They're involved in numerous conflicts mainly around the 
North Point Mall.  This is the turf of the Streetwannabe's so the 
conflict of the two groups is sparked easily.  The security guards are 
often chased by cops for their "shot first, asked questions later" 
attitudes.  It's believed that the Security Guards use Escobar 
International Airport for smuggling activities.
C-SFM. Sindacco Family 

City: Liberty City, Las Venturas
Turf: Portland (LC), Caligula's Casino (LV)
Leader: 1992 - Johnny Sindacco, 1998 - Paulie Sindacco
Clothes/ colours: Suits, sunglasses, leather jackets 
Vehicles: Sindacco Argento (LC) (Credit: Dan Justice), Admiral (LV) 
(Credit: Nitzhi Volganopol)  
Activity: Protection, gambling, prostitution, drug dealing. 
In the early 1990's, the Sindaccos were one of three Liberty City mafia 
families that owned shares of Caligula's Casino in Las Venturas.  They 
were able to fund this after a loan of $5 million from the Leone's.  
Out of the 3 mafia families the Sindacco's were that ones that seem 
most interested in Las Venturas as a business opportunity.  They 
maintained a warehouse in Las Venturas where they manufactured fake 
betting chips to distribute at rival casinos to disrupt their business.  
They also owned a meat factory.  However, the Sindacco's time ran out 
in 1992 when management at the Four Dragons Casino killed almost every 
member of the Sindacco Family in their meat factory in Las Venturas.  
In 1998, the Sindacco's had become a shell of their former selves.  
They would be caught in turf wars with the Leone's and the Forelli's in 
Liberty City.  The Leone's would eventually finish off the Sindacco 
Family for good in the city.  It's believed that the Sindacco's then 
left Liberty City to operate full time in Las Venturas at the casino.

Storyline: In 1992, Johnny Sindacco led the Sindacco Family.  He was 
captured by Woozie and CJ drove him around town tied to the front of a 
car to get information out of him.  Based on this, CJ was able to 
destroy the Sindacco plastic warehouse and stop their fake chip 
production.  Johnny was released from hospital after the trauma he 
suffered thanks to CJ.  CJ went to meet Johnny and the Sindacco's as a 
favour to Ken Rosenburg.  When Johnny recognized CJ he died of a heart 
attack.  CJ proceeded to kill all the Sindacco Family members in the 
factory and, basically, destroyed the family.  By 1998 they had very 
little influence in Liberty City but were operating the casino in Las 
Venturas still and profiting.  The Sindacco's got in a turf war with 
the Forelli's and the Leone's.  Toni Cipriani managed to finish off the 
Sindacco's for good in Liberty City.  Itís believed that they decided 
to focus on the casino in Las Venturas after this.

C-STW. Streetwannabe's 

City: Vice City
Turf: North Point Mall, Prawn Island
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Blue jeans, leather jacket, red shirts. 
Vehicles: Gang Burrito 
Activity: Theft, arms dealing.

The Streetwannabe's are a small gang of wannabe thugs in Vice City.  In 
the 1980's they took part in several minor acts against other gangs in 
Vice City to increase their reputation but were usually dealt with 
quickly.  They mostly deal with theft of drugs or weapons and then 
resell them on the streets for profit.  The Streetwannabe's focus 
mainly around the North Point Mall in Vice City and can often be seen 
in conflicts with the local security guards.

Storyline: Tommy Vercetti deals with the Streetwannabe's several times 
during his rise in Vice City in 1986.  Ricardo Diaz finds that one of 
his men is working with them and has been stealing extra cash from 
Diaz. He assigns Tommy to follow him.  Tommy finds the man head into an 
abandoned house on Prawn Island.  Tommy returns in a helicopter and 
slaughters most of the members there.  He then travels on foot and 
recovers Diaz' drugs.  Later, the Streetwannabe's steal Big Mitch 
Baker's bike and Tommy Vercetti recovers it from the group.

C-TRLC. The Triads (Liberty City)                      

City: Liberty City
Turf: Chinatown
Leader: Unknown
Clothes/ colours: Blue uniforms (like a mechanic's clothes)  
Vehicles: Fish Van 
Activity: Food distribution (fish), protection.
The Triads of Liberty City were never an organized group or held much 
power until 1998.  At that time, they sabotaged a Leone Family complex 
and destroyed it.  This site would later become a Fish Factory for the 
Triads.  During the following years the Triads gained more and more 
influence on Portland Island.  They were never major but had a good 
front and numerous members.  In 2001, the Triads started a war with the 
Leone Family again by attacking some high ranking members.  With the 
help of Claude, the Leone's were able to kill several high ranking 
members of the Triads and destroy the Triad Fish Factory.  The Triad 
influence seemed to drop after that incident.

Storyline: The Triads weren't much of a group until they destroyed a 
Leone Family facility in 1998.  Toni Cipriani was in the building and 
managed to survive the explosion and the following swarm of Triad 
members.  This could be the cause for his strong hatred of the Triads 
by 2001.  The Triads rebuilt the building as their Fish Factory, a 
legitimate front for the group.  Subsequent attacks on the Leone Family 
allowed them to gain more territory.  In 2001, the Triads started a 
gang war with the Leone's by first attacking Toni Cipriani.  He 
instructed Claude to take out several Triad leaders and destroy their 
Fish Factory in Portland.  Claude accomplished this and ended the 
threat from the Triads.

City: Vice City
Turf: Trailer Park
Leader: Marty Jay Williams
Clothes/ colours: Dirty jeans, wife beater shirts. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Drug distribution, prostitution, protection.

The Trailer Park Mafia existed in the poor neighbourhoods of Vice City 
in the early 1980's.  They took advantage of the poor civilians in 
these areas and squeezed all they could out of them.  Their activities 
cause problems with other local gangs but they fail to care about these 
matters.  Their leader is killed in 1984 and the group is broken up 
after this.

Storyline: Marty Jay Williams leads the Trailer Park Mafia in the 
1980's.  In 1984, they start working with Victor Vance.  Marty was 
constantly abusive to his wife, Louise.  She eventually tries to leave 
but Marty kidnaps her.  Victor Vance tracks him down and kills him 
before he can get to his hideout.  The group breaks up and Vic takes 
over their business after this.  It's unknown if the group reforms 
later on.

C-VAG. Vagos                      

City: Los Santos

Clothes/ colours: Dark pants/ shorts, white shirts (wife-beaters), any 
yellow bandanas, hats or other clothing. 
Vehicles: Voodoo, Tornado, Ocean, Hermes (Credit: Nitzhi Volganopol)  
Activity: Drug distribution, robbery.

In the early 1990's (or late 1980's) the Vagos allied themselves with 
the Ballas in a drug distribution empire lead by Officer Tenpenny of 
the LSPD's CRASH dept.  In 1992, the Ballas wiped out the Grove Street 
Families the Vagos were able to wipe out the Varrios Los Aztecas, the 
rival Hispanic gang.  Taking over their territory, the Vagos enjoyed a 
time of dominance along with the Ballas.  However, the Grove Street 
Families and the Varrios Los Aztecas returned and killed numerous Vagos 
members.  They would eventually lose most or all of their territory.

Storyline: In 1992, the Ballas wiped out the Grove Street Families the 
Vagos had several Varrios Los Aztecas members defect to them due to 
drugs.  The Vagos killed most of the remaining Varrios Los Aztecas 
members and took over their territory.  They enjoyed this time as an 
ally of the Ballas and the Loco Syndicate.  Eventually, Cesar (former 
leader of the Varrios Los Aztecas) returned and with the help of CJ and 
other Varrios Los Aztecas members they killed the Vagos.  It's unknown 
if the gang survived after this decimation.

City: Los Santos
Turf: El Corona
Leader: Cesar Vialpando
Clothes/ colours: Any turquoise clothing.  Wife-beaters, pants, 
Vehicles: Any low-rider 
Activity: Street racing, car modifications (car shops)

In 1992, the Varrios Los Aztecas were in a turf war with the Vagos.  
The Vagos represented the Mexican gangs involved in drugs distribution.  
The Los Aztecas wanted nothing to do with drugs and focused primarily 
on car racing and modifying of cars.  However, the Vagos allied 
themselves with the Ballas and managed to kill most of the Varrios Los 
Aztecas members.  Several others turned on their friends and joined the 
Vagos because of the drugs.  Cesar Vialpando and several high ranking 
members fled Los Santos.  A while later they returned and allied with 
the Grove Street Families, managing to kill off most of the Vagos 
members and reclaim their territory.

Storyline: In 1992, Cesar Vialpando led the Varrios Los Aztecas.  After 
the Ballas and Vagos killed most of the Varrios Los Aztecas and Grove 
Street Families members, Cesar, CJ, Kendl, and other members of both 
gangs left Los Santos.  They set up base in a garage in San Fierro to 
figure out a strategy on getting back their territory in Los Santos.  
Eventually, CJ and Cesar made it back into Los Santos.  CJ helped Cesar 
and several members of the Varrios Los Aztecas fight off and kill most 
of the Vagos gangs and reclaim their territory.  Cesar and CJ created a 
strong alliance between their two groups but it is unknown if it 
C-VGCR. Vercetti Gang/ Crime Ring 

City: Vice City
Turf: Various locations, Starfish Island
Leader: Tommy Vercetti
Clothes/ colours: Hawaiian shirts and navy blue pants. 
Vehicles: Unknown 
Activity: Protection, drug trafficking, counterfeiting, various 
businesses used as fronts.

In the mid 1980's the Vercetti gang appeared, basically, overnight.  
After completely destroying the Diaz (Columbian) gang, the Vercetti 
gang took over most of their property.  The Vercetti Gang was involved 
in tons of property acquisition which included such companies as the 
Print Works, Boatyard, Kauffmann Cabs, Pole Position, and several 
others.  After an attempt to destroy the gang by their former allies, 
the Forelliís, the Vercetti Gang settled in to their spot at the top of 
Vice City.  It's reported that the Vercetti Gang was still running Vice 
City in 1992.

Storyline: In 1986, after Tommy Vercetti killed Ricardo Diaz and most 
of his gang, he took over Diaz' mansion.  The new 'Vercetti' mansion on 
Starfish Island became the central base for the Vercetti Gang.  They 
purchased several companies as fronts for their activities.  Soon 
enough, Tommy Vercetti's former bosses came looking for him.  Tommy and 
the Vercetti Gang took care of the Forelli threat and continued to gain 
influence in the city. 

C-YAK. Yakuza

City: Liberty City
Turf: Torrington
Leader: 1998 - Kasuki, 2001 - Asuka & Kenji, currently unknown
Clothes/ colours: Black suits, black clothing. 
Vehicles: Yakuza Stinger 
Activity: Gambling, extortion. 

In 1998, the Yakuza had an immense arsenal.  This included a tank and 
other military weapons.  However, the Leone Family were able to destroy 
a great deal of this weaponry and slow the Yakuza take over in 
Torrington.  Unfortunately for the Leone's, the Yakuza still managed to 
take over Torrington on Staunton Island.  The Yakuza continued their 
turf war with the Leone Family and started one with the Columbian 
Cartel.  These turf wars continued through 2001.  However, the Leone 
Family would suffer a significant blow from the Yakuza.  The Yakuza 
managed to kill Salvatore Leone, the Don of the family.  The Yakuza 
would suffer as well as both Kenji and his sister Asuka, the leaders of 
the Yakuza, were killed.  Both killed by the Columbian Cartel.  The 
Cartel would be almost completely wiped out shortly after that.

Storyline: In 1998, the Yakuza was building up their arsenal in Liberty 
City.  However, the leader, Kasuki Kasen, had a very vengeful wife.  
They were in an arranged marriage and he preferred the company of men 
over her (you catch my drift?).  She wanted to see her husband dead and 
his gang destroyed thanks to this lack of attention.  So she hired Toni 
Cipriani to perform a few jobs to destroy the gang, its arsenal and 
kill Kasuki.  Even so, they managed to take Torrington on Staunton 
Island from the Leone Family.  In 2001, the Yakuza were in turf wars 
with the Leone Family and the Columbian Cartel.  Asuka, one of the 
leaders, would partner up with a former employee of the Leone Family 
after he was betrayed.  This person was Claude.  Claude killed 
Salvatore Leone and several assassin groups of Leone Family members 
searching for Claude.  Having put this war behind them, the Yakuza 
focused on the Columbian Cartel.  Asuka and Kenji sent Claude on 
several missions to stop their activities.  Claude would eventually 
work for a media tycoon named Donald Love.  Donald set up a plan to 
kill Kenji and frame the Cartel.  It worked.  The Yakuza believed the 
Cartel killed Kenji.  Asuka launched a war of revenge against the 
Cartel and their operations.  But Asuka would eventually be killed by 
the Cartel leader, Catalina.

C-YAR. Yardies

City: Liberty City
Turf: Newport
Leader: King Courtney
Clothes/ colours: Tan coloured vest and pants. 
Vehicles: Yardie Lobo 
Activity: Car racing, drug dealing 
The Yardies are a street gang in Liberty City.  They focus on street 
racing and dealing of drugs as their primary fronts.  In 2001, the 
Yardies were allied with the Columbian Cartel to produce and distribute 
a new drug called SPANK.  The Yardies' drug fronts, coffee stands, 
would be destroyed that year by the Yakuza.  The Yardies would suffer 
another blow later as the Columbian Cartel was almost completely wiped 
out.  It's most likely that the Yardies simply went back to the regular 
drug dealing and car racing activities.

Storyline: In 2001, the Yardies allied with the Columbian Cartel to 
distribute SPANK across Liberty City.  During the same time, Claude 
worked for them on a few missions to help collect cars and to try and 
wipe out the Diablos in Portland.  Once Claude was done with them he 
was working for the Yakuza and destroyed the Yardies' front, their 
coffee stands.  Claude would later be responsible for the destruction 
of the Columbian Cartel.  It's likely that the Yardies continued on 
with drug selling and car racing.

D. Characters

Well we've gone through the gangs and cities of the Grand Theft Auto 
universe but now we get down to the characters.  No 2 characters in the 
GTA universe are alike.  Past experiences and circumstances change 
people's lives and set them down their own path or destiny.  This 
section will go through some of the more influential people in Grand 
Theft Auto.  As I have previously stated, if you have any comments or 
wish I add someone's profile then email me and I'll work it out for 
you.  This section contains background information and a few comments 
from me.

Nicknames: 8-Ball

an explosives expert that operates 3 shops across the city.  In 1998, 
8-Ball helped out Toni Cipriani on several missions he did for Donald 
Love.  This was probably why he had such strong ties with the Leone 
Family by 2001.  Prior to the events in GTA III, 8-Ball suffered 
injuries to both his hands.  Although it was believe to be caused by a 
cop spilling hot oil/ fat on them, GTA Advance reveals that he suffered 
these injuries from a gang ambush.  By 2001, 8-Ball is on his way to 
jail with his hands bandaged up.  However, the Columbian Cartel attacks 
his police escort to break another man out.  8-Ball and a man he just 
met named Claude (you may know him) use this opportunity to escape.  8-
Ball went back to work and introduced Claude to the Leone Family.  8-
Ball provide Claude with his explosive expertise on several occasions 
including joining Claude in a mission to blow up a Cartel tanker.  
However, the Leone Family betray Claude.  Nothing is heard from 8-Ball

Mafia Family.  At some point around 1994, Toni Cipriani killed a made 
man and had to flee Liberty City.  Vincenzo started to climb his way up 
the family hierarchy.  He became one of Salvatore's top men.  When Toni 
returned in 1998 he found Vincenzo had taken his place.  Toni was 
forced to work for Vincenzo.  Vincenzo treated Toni like crap and with 
no respect.  Toni dealt with it for Salvatore's sake but was growing 
increasingly impatient.  Soon Vincenzo assigned Toni with picking up 
his car and a stash of drugs in it.  Toni went there but found the car 
was a setup with the cops.  Toni called up Vincenzo who said he knew it 
was a setup but didn't care as sometimes you have to take risks.  Toni 
quit Vincenzo's employment and crushed his car.  Vincenzo then called

Full name: Mrs. Cipriani (no first name is given)
Nicknames: Ma, Ma Cipriani

Mrs. Cipriani is the mother of Toni.  Her husband was once part of the 
mafia (probably the Leone Family) as well but was eventually killed or 
died in an undisclosed manner.  She holds Toni to the same standards as 
her husband and is, thus, never satisfied with what he does.  Toni is a 
failure to her.  In the mid 1990's Toni had to leave Liberty City after 
killing a made man.  In 1998, he returns and she sees Toni as bringing 
a bad name to her family so she calls a hit on him.  Toni fights off 
the assassins and she eventually calls it off once Toni becomes 'made'.  
She's proud of him at that point.  Toni moves back in with his mother 
and she resorts back to her old ways of putting him down.  Even after 
the hit attempt Toni still loves her and wishes to make her happy.

D-CT. Cipriani, Toni

Full name: Antonio Cipriani
Nicknames: Toni
Affiliation: Leone Family
Lives in: Liberty City

Toni Cipriani followed his father and got into the Leone Family mafia.  
He made his way up the family ladder and was eventually asked to kill a 
made man.  Toni succeeded but had to leave Liberty City for several 
years until it blew over (ala Michael in GodFather).  Returning in 
1998, Toni joined the Leone Family again.  He was placed under 
Vincenzo's watch, much to Toni's dismay.  Working his way back up the 
ladder, he becomes Don Salvatoreís right hand man.  Toni helps 
Salvatore in attempts to wipe out the other families in Liberty City.  
They succeed in killing off the Sindacco Family.  By 2001, Toni had 
become the Donís capo.  Toni would hire Claude to do some work for him 
usually involving the Triads.  After Salvatore betrayed Claude, Claude 
returned and killed Salvatore Leone.  It's unknown whether Salvatoreís 
son, Joey, or Toni Cipriani took over the family after that.

D-CLD. Claude

Full name: Claude
Nicknames: Fido, Kid
Affiliation: Has worked for multiple groups.
Lives in: San Fierro then moved to Liberty City

Claude originally lived in San Fierro and owned a garage.  In 1992, he 
started dating Catalina after she broke up with CJ.  Claude and CJ 
raced for pink slips but Claude ended up losing.  He handed over the 
deed to his garage to CJ. Claude and Catalina left for Liberty City.  
During the next few years they probably robbed several stores and banks 
in Liberty City.  In 2001, they robbed another bank.  On the way out 
Catalina shot Claude stating that he was only small time.  Claude was 
sent to jail.  However, on the trip to Liberty City Penitentiary the 
Columbian Cartel inadvertently broke Claude out.  He started to work 
for the Leone Family but was eventually betrayed by them.  Claude then 
killed Salvatore Leone as payback for this betrayal.  Claude continued 
on his quest for revenge by working for the Yakuza.  Eventually, Claude 
was able to kill Catalina after she kidnapped his girlfriend, Maria.  
He saved Maria and they moved on.  But at the end of the game a shotgun 
blast can be heard.  It's possible that Claude shot her to shut her up 
but nothing is certain.

Comments: Claude's name was speculated at during GTA III.  He was never 
referred to by name.  Claude was the name fans gave him as some of the 
GTA III disc files referred to the name Claude.  This would later be 
confirmed in GTA San Andreas when, after you have completed the game, 
Catalina calls CJ and yells out Claudeís name during their intimate 
love making.  Claude's silence was also referred to in San Andreas.  
When Claude doesn't respond to CJ's threats, CJ calls him a mute.  So 
this could mean that Claude actually is mute.

corrupt politicians or gangs to get the ferries operational again or 
end the strike.  The Leone Family was negatively affected by this

day as CJ was too heartbroken to return and Brian was gone.  She

1992 he returned to Los Santos because of the death of his mom.  CJ 
returned to find the Grove Street Families were a shell of their former 
selves.  He vowed to restore the gang to its former glory.  However,

slaughtered in a shoot out.  CJ left Los Santos and established himself 
elsewhere by obtaining a garage in San Fierro and then an airfield in 
the desert.  He became a partial owner of the Four Dragons Casino in 
Las Venturas.  He returned to Los Santos and proceeded to take his

Full name: Kendl Johnson
Nicknames: None.
Affiliation: Grove Street Families
Lives in: Los Santos

from fighting when they were younger.  It's believed that Kendl was 
there when Brian was killed by a mistake CJ made (you can hear it in 
CJ's head when he enters his house at the beginning of the game).  
After Brian's death CJ left for Liberty City.  Kendl probably took this 
hard as she had to deal with Brian's death and CJ leaving.  In 1992, CJ 
returned after their mom's death.  Kendl was dating a Mexican named 
Cesar at this time and Sean was having a problem with it.  CJ had a 
problem with it too but was less vocal.  Eventually, CJ met Cesar and 
they soon became friends.  After the Grove Street Families were 
decimated, CJ won a garage in San Fierro during a race.  Kendl moved 
out to San Fierro to run the business.  When CJ became an owner of the

be the father figure in the family since they had grown up without one.  
In the 1980's Sean and CJ formed the Grove Street Families.  In 1987, 
CJ made a mistake that got Brian, the youngest brother, killed.  CJ 
left Los Santos for Liberty City because of this.  Sean saw this as 
running from your problems and resented CJ for it.  As hard as Sean 
tried he couldn't maintain the Grove Street Families.  Members began to 
fight among themselves and the families fell apart.  Drugs were also 
introduced into Los Santos which furthered the problems.  When their 
mom was killed in 1992 it was believed that the people responsible were 
trying to kill Sean.  CJ returned home and Sean didn't give him a warm 
welcome.  He was still bitter over Brian's death.  CJ began to rebuild 
the Grove Street Families and earn back Sean's respect. Sean was still 
hard on him probably because of the father figure he had become.  He 
disapproved of Kendl's boyfriend but she didn't care.  When Ryder and 
Big Smoke turned on the Grove Street Families, Sean was ambushed and 
injured.  He spent the next few weeks in jail awaiting trial.  In jail, 
Sweet got very depressed and called CJ several times to tell CJ to 
forget about him.  But CJ got Sweet out and they restored the Grove 
Street Families.

bank and Cam broke the safe.  As they escaped, Hilary was shot dead.  
Cam's status is unknown.

anyone who doesn't get why, Kazuki is gay).  So she hires Toni Cipriani 
to destroy the Yakuza and kill Kazuki.  Toni destroys several of the 
Yakuza's heavy artillery and then manages to kill Kazuki in a katana 
sword fight on top of the Yakuza casino.  Once Toni informs Toshiko

street as one of the best drivers but was also known for having very 
little confidence.  Tommy asked Hilary to join him in his bank heist 
but Hilary said he would agree only if Tommy would beat him in a race.  
Tommy was able to win the race and they robbed the bank.  However, in 
an attempt to save Tommy, Phil, and Cam, Hilary was killed by the SWAT 
team that came to arrest them.

Comment: Hilary's racing mission is thought to be one of the hardest 
missions in GTA Vice City.  I would have to agree.

a boyfriend who beats her up.  Toni kills him for this.  Maria 
overdoses when Toni finds her again and he races around town to find a 
counter drug and saves her life.  In 2001, Maria is introduced to 
Claude by Salvatore.  Claude drives her around town to get drugs and 
attend a party.  Maria respects that he treated her very well and falls 
for Claude.  She informs Salvatore and he's furious.  Salvatore 
attempts to kill Claude but Maria helps him escape.  Claude kills 
Salvatore.  Maria and Claude join the Yakuza gang thanks to Maria's 
"friend" Asuka.  Whenever Claude visits Asuka and Maria it appears that

but Claude rescues her.  As Maria and Claude walk off she won't stop 
talking and a gunshot is heard.  It's unknown if Maria is killed or if 
this was merely a joke by the developers.

Comment: In 1998, Maria is referred to as the wife of Salvatore.  By 
2001 she's only introduced as his "girl" or girlfriend.  Since GTA: LCS 
was developed after GTA3 we should take its history as correct.  
Therefore, Maria and Salvatore married at some point between 1992 and

and people in the Grand Theft Auto universe it's time to put it all 
together.  The storyline in each game has several key relations to what 
happens or what has happened in the other games.  It really shows the 
player that this is one big world and everything is connected in even 
the slightest way.  We're all connected!  Freaky.  Well, let's get to 

E1. 1971-1983

E2. 1984

The events of GTA Vice City Stories

Victor Vance and his brothers are struggling to get by.  Victor is a 
corporal in the U.S. Army and is stationed at Fort Baxter Air Base in 
Vice City while Lance is a wreck thanks to his drug addiction.  Victor 
finds himself recruited by his commanding officer, Sgt. Jerry Martinez, 
to go and pick up some drugs for him.  Victor heads out and meets 
Jerry's contact but they're attacked and Victor is forced to swim back 
to the base and hide the drugs in his barracks for Jerry.  Victor 
expresses his hatred for the drugs and wants Jerry to take them out of 
his barracks.  Jerry simply instructs Victor to meet up with his 
friend, Phil Cassidy, who Jerry needs some money from.  When Vic meets 
Phil, Phil invites Vic to come with him to go get the money.  They 
arrive at Phil's old place and it's overrun by Cholos.  Vic and Phil 
kill them and recover the cash.  Vic returns to the base and gives the 
cash to Jerry.

When Victor returns he's again asked to do something for Jerry.  He 
asks Vic to go pick up a hooker named Mary and bring her back to the 
base.  Jerry promises to take the drugs out of your barracks if you go 
and pick up Mary.  He's also advised to go by Phil's first.  Phil 
presents Vic with a new Stinger.  He's reluctant but takes it and picks 
up Mary.  He brings her back to the base but is met by security that 
have found the drugs in his barracks and see the hooker in the car with 
him.  Victor is discharged from the Army.  Phil contacts Victor on his 
pager and has some work for him.

Phil first asks Vic to help him hunt down some Cholos as payback and 
then help Phil save his Boomshine from the Cholos.  When Vic meets up 
with Phil again he's with Martinez.  Despite Martinez' double-crossing 
Vic, he still needs the money so he agrees to work with Phil.  They 
pick up some guns for Martinez and as they try to get them to safety 
they're chased by the owners of the weapons.  They manage to fight them 
off and escape.  Martinez then instructs Phil and Vic to get to a 
warehouse to check on some merchandise.  When they arrive they find it 
is a double-cross.  They escape the warehouse and make it back to 
Phil's place.

Phil introduces Vic to his brother-in-law, Marty Jay Williams.  Marty 
gets Vic to take care of a few hooligans that are bugging a "business 
interest" of his.  Vic returns to Marty's place and finds Louise 
working out.  Marty shows up and needs Vic's help repossessing some 
cars which Vic is successful in re-acquiring.  The Cholos find out 
about Marty's repo business and Marty instructs Vic to stop them by 
destroying their vans.  When Vic returns to Marty he finds that Marty 
is taking over a new business and wants Vic's help in cleaning out the 
place.  Vic arrives and kills the Cholos gang members in the building.  
Vic heads back to talk to Marty and finds that Marty is having another 
problem with the Cholos who are harassing some of Marty's girls.  Vic 
finds the girls being attacked by Cholos and helps them escape and 
return to Marty's new business.

Vic is then invited by Louise to her sister's place.  She's upset and 
Vic and her share their personal hard times with each other.  She has 
left Marty so she's looking to improve her spirits.  They agree to head 
out for some fun (not that kind you sicko).  Vic enters a quad bike 
race and wins it which, obviously, impresses Louise.  Louise has one 
problem afterwards; she has left some of her things at Marty's.  Vic 
and Louise head over to grab them.  When they arrive they find a group 
of men waiting for them.  The 2 take out the men and recover Louise's 
stuff and return to Louise's sister's place.  Vic leaves and he's 
contacted by Mary-Jo (Louise's sister) who says that Louise has been 
kidnapped by Marty.  Vic heads to Marty's place and finds him headed 
for his business with Louise.  Vic pursues and manages to kill Marty 
when they get there.  He grabs Louise and they drive off.  Louise then 
decides that Vic and her should take over Marty's business.  Vic gets 
some men and heads for Marty's loan shark company.  He kills Marty's 
men there and then heads for Marty's protection racket where Vic kills 
some more men in the trailer park.  He has successfully taken over 
Marty's business.

Vic gets a page that someone is waiting for him at the airport so he 
heads over.  He's surprised to find Lance there waiting for him.  
There's some tension but the 2 that they brush off and leave together.  
However, the Cholos attack them and they take off.  The Cholos follow 
their car as they head for Lance's hotel.  They manage to make it there 
safely.  Louise then contacts Vic about his brothel being on fire.  Vic 
steals a fire truck and manages to put out the fire and finds that 
Marty's cousin started it.  Vic kills him for it.

Louise contacts Vic again as welfare has decided that she's a bad 
mother.  She has planned to kill the welfare officer she deals with.  
So Vic takes off and kills the men that Louise has got chasing him.  
Vic catches him and simply issues him a warning.  Vic gets a message 
and meets up with a man named Umberto Robina.  Umberto says that Vic 
can trust him but he must first prove it so he asks Vic to go pick up a 
package for him.  One of Umberto's men comes with Vic to watch over 
what happens.  As Vic gets to the package someone else comes up and 
grabs it.  Vic gives chase and is able to recover the package and 
deliver it to a specified location.  Vic returns to Umberto to find 
that he wants Vic to take out some Cholos who will be attempting to 
cause some destruction in Little Havana.  Vic quickly heads out with 
some of Umberto's men and takes out the Cholos.

When Vic returns he finds that Umberto is having some problems with his 
father.  Umberto wants Vic to take his car and pick his dad up.  Vic 
heads over to the stadium and finds Alberto waiting.  He manages to 
avoid some Cholos patrols and make it back to the cafe.  Next, Umberto 
wants Vic to clear out an area so that his boys can collect a gift for 
the Cholos.  Vic clears the area and then provides cover for Umberto's 
men as they pick up the weapons.  Vic drives the van to Umberto's house 
as he avoids more Cholos patrols.

Vic returns back to Lance who has a plan to make it big.  His contact 
is a man named Bryan Forbes.  Lance and Vic drive to a restaurant where 
Bryan is set to call.  They talk with Bryan and he wants them to get 
his car back.  As they talk, the restaurant is robbed but Vic kills the 
men and they leave to find the cops waiting.  They lose the cops and 
get to the impound yard with Forbes' car.  They get in and recover the 
car.  Vic returns to check up on his brother and finds him with Mr. 
Forbes.  They need Vic to be a decoy for the cops while they steal some 
merchandise.  Vic hopes in a van and heads off to distract the cops.  
Lance and Bryan manage to steal the merchandise and Vic loses the cops.  
Later, Vic finds Lance and Bryan at the stadium.  Lance pulls a gun on 
Forbes who admits he's a cop but a crooked cop who needs cash.  Forbes 
tries to escape but Vic and Lance chase him down and capture him.

When Vic meets up with Lance again, Bryan is tied up and Vic 
interrogates him.  He reveals some information about a dealer who's on 
his boat at the moment.  He's untrusting of people and will only meet 
one-on-one so Lance decides to meet with him as Vic finds a good spot 
to keep an eye on him.  Vic sees that Lance is in trouble and has been 
captured and taken onto a large cargo ship.  Vic uses his car to jump a 
ramp onto the ship and then rescues Lance.  They kill the men on the 
ship and recover some illegal substances.  The brothers get off the 
ship and get to safety.

Vic returns to Bryan and gets some more information from him.  Bryan 
talks about a major shipment coming in and sends the boys to a contact 
at a bar.  When they arrive they find it to be a gay, white supremacist 
bar.  The brothers fight off the angry bikers and return to Bryan's 
location.  He's trying to escape but Vic runs him down and kills him.  
Vic returns with Lance to Lance's hotel room.  There, Vic and Lance get 
into a huge fight.  Their mom shows up which stops it before anything 
can happen and Lance asks Vic to meet a dealer at the airport.  Vic 
gets there but the goods have already been sold.  Vic goes around the 
building and finds the group that got them.  He kills them along with 
some bikers and recovers the goods.

Back at the hotel, Lance has another plan.  A big shipment is coming in 
but Vic wants nothing to do with it.  Lance mentions that the drugs are 
for Jerry Martinez and Vic becomes very interested.  They get to Little 
Haiti and kill the men there and then grab the truck.  They take off 
and are chased by several gang members.  Martinez arrives in a 
helicopter and attacks as well but the brothers manage to escape to the 
east island.  As Lance debuts his new look, Vic is on the phone 
insulting Martinez.  Martinez threatens to turn over evidence that will 
ruin Vic and warns of the Mendez Brothers but Lance figures they can 
sell the goods, pay off the cops, and it'll all work out.  Lance and 
Vic head to the mall to talk with a potential buyer.  His name is Spitz 
and he's filming a zombie movie so Vic volunteers as a stuntman while 
Lance talks with the guy.  Once Vic is done they leave the mall and 
return home only to find that their mom has stolen all the goods.

Vic finds out that the Mendez Brothers no longer want the Vance 
Brothers dead; they just want to ruin their business.  Lance and Vic 
take off to protect their businesses and they manage to kill the gang 
members that arrive.  When Vic returns to Lance he finds that Lance 
believes his apartment is bugged and that the DEA is on to them.  Lance 
asks Vic to destroy the police antennae so the signal will no longer 
work.  So Vic heads around to the police stations in Vice City and 
destroys the antennae.  Next up, Lance suspects (trusting guy isn't he) 
that the bikers are helping themselves to some of their goods so they 
head out in a helicopter to eliminate the men.  They manage to kill 
them but they do enough damage to the helicopter to force it to land.  
Vic and Lance regroup and escape the next wave of bikers that come 
after them.  Lance leaves on his own as Vic heads off.

Sometime later Vic finds Lance with Louise.  Lance has lost it.  He 
decides that he'll either use the rest of the product or give it away 
for free so he takes off in a helicopter and Vic chases after him in a 
hovercraft.  Vic follows Lance as he drops packages from the 
helicopter, picks them up, and brings them back to his place.  Vic 
meets up with Lance who is sleeping after his idiotic decision and 
Louise calls Vic about Martinez.  Apparently he has been stalking her 
and she's at a burger place.  Vic arrives to finds Martinez' men take 
off with Louise.  Vic chases after them, stops the car, and gets in.  
He drives Louise to the hospital after the beating she received.

Vic returns to Lance and finds that the Mendez Brothers are attacking 
their businesses again.  Vic and Lance take off and kill the attackers 
before they do much damage.  He leaves Lance and heads for the hospital 
as Louise is getting out soon.  He's worried that Martinez might try to 
get her at that point.  Vic picks up Louise only to find that Lance is 
caught in a burning building.  Vic grabs the helicopter on the hospital 
and heads to the building.  Lance tells Vic of who set the fire and 
they take off to kill them.  They find the men in a boat and Lance 
shoots them from the helicopter.  Lance jumps down on the boat and Vic 
takes Louise back home.

Vic and Lance meet the Mendez Brothers and form a temporary alliance.  
Vic must prove that Martinez was the one who ripped off the brothers 
with their shipment.  Vic drives to the police station as Martinez is 
entering the Witness Protection Program.  Vic takes a picture of 
Martinez with the DEA agent and several other officers.  Vic heads to 
Lance's apartment avoiding the police and grabs Forbes' ID so he can 
head to the Print Works.  The information is later given to the Mendez 
Brothers.  They now want Vic to stop some bikers from ripping off their 
business so Vic heads over to the building and kills the men there.  He 
returns to be assigned another job to eliminate some more competition 
to which he chases down all the leaders of the group and kills them.

Vic is contacted by the Mendez Brothers who tell him that the cops have 
stolen their product and they're going to tell the cops it's Vic's 
unless he recovers it.  He races around town and uses a helicopter and 
several vehicles to recover all the product for the Mendez Brothers.  
Vic then heads to rescue the Mendez Brothers from some attacking 
bikers.  Vic and Lance come back to the Mendez Brothers but they have 
other plans for the Vance boys.  They take them to an abandoned depot 
and leave them for dead.  Vic manages to save Lance and they escape the 
burning inferno.

A few days later Vic finds that Armando Mendez has Louise.  Lance and 
Vic set up a plan to rescue her.  Lance heads off on a bike after his 
car was destroyed by the Mendez Brothers.  Vic takes off and they 
destroy some gang cars on their way to the Mendez mansion on Prawn 
Island.  Vic and Lance enter and Vic meets Armando who has a 
flamethrower.  Vic kills him and Louise dies in his arms after the 
beating she has once again received.

Vic is heartbroken but knows that he has a lot of work to do.  He meets 
up with Spitz who puts Vic in contact with Reni Wassulmaier who can 
give Vic lots of contact names for their goods.  Reni needs Vic for a 
part in his/her commercials and Vic performs the stunts for Reni.  Reni 
sets up a meeting for Vic with Gonzalez who has some product to move.  
Gonzalez puts Vic in command of a helicopter for air support of a boat 
carrying the cargo.  They succeed.  Now, Reni's friend, Barry, needs a 
ride to pick up a friend.  They get in a bullet-proof limo and drive to 
the meeting to find Barry's friend under attack.  Vic kills the 
attackers and meets Barry's friend, Phil Collins (OMG!).  They get back 
into the limo and make it to Phil's apartment despite the attackers 
following.  Vic returns to Reni and acts as a stuntman in another video 
for Reni.

Vic meets up with Phil Collins who needs to make sure the concert will 
be secure so Vic heads over and checks the security.  Vic finds some 
suspicious men trying to blow up the arena so he kills them and stops 
their plans.  Vic returns to Reni who needs him to make sure the Mendez 
Brothers don't know he/she has left the film studio for the hospital.  
Vic protects the studio but is then contacted by Reni who is in 
trouble.  Vic gets there and rescues Reni, taking he/she to the 
hospital.  After the operation Vic is asked to pick Reni up and deliver 
he/she to the airport on his way to the Phil Collins concert.  Vic 
drops Reni off, says goodbye, and then goes to the concert to stop some 
more men from trying to kill Phil.  Vic gets rid of them all and 
watches the rest of the concert.

Vic meets up with Gonzalez and plays golf to show Gonzalez his 
abilities.  He finds Gonzalez again and he wants Vic to get some goods 
and drop them off at a deal in Washington (the neighbourhood, not the 
actual city).  Vic gets there, is ambushed, and the drugs are stolen.  
He manages to kill the gangsters on Starfish Island and get the goods 
back, returning them to Gonzalez.  Gonzalez then asks Vic to get in a 
helicopter and escort Gonzalez' truck to the airport.  Vic destroys 
numerous vans and gang members that attempt to destroy the truck and 
Gonzalez' airplane as it takes off.

Vic moves on to work with Ricardo Diaz who he was originally introduced 
to by Reni.  Diaz wants Vic to find some of Gonzalez' merchandise which 
was hidden offshore.  Vic tails one of Gonzalez' men to an unmanned 
boat which he steals and brings back to Diaz.  Vic returns to Diaz who 
has set up a "drugs for guns" deal which he wants Vic's help with.  
They drive to the meeting but snipers begin shooting at them.  Vic 
kills the snipers and then gets the guns back to Diaz' place safely.  
Diaz now wants Vic to destroy all of Armando Mendez' (he's dead, 
remember) bearer bonds.  Vic gets put in control of the Domestorobot 
(wicked!) and sneaks around the Mendez mansion.  Vic opens the safe and 
torches the bonds. 

Diaz now thinks that it's time to bring down the Mendez' businesses.  
Vic gets Phil Cassidy's help to get into Fort Baxter and steal a Hunter 
and bring it back to Diaz' place.  Vic then takes the Hunter to Mendez' 
mansion.  He kills all the guards around it and lands on the ground.  
Several helicopters begin to shoot at Vic as he avoids them and other 
guards.  Vic heads up to the roof and confronts Martinez and Diego 
Mendez.  The 3 have a shootout and Vic manages to kill both of them.  
After the destruction and mess Victor has caused, he and Lance decide 
to leave Vice City for a short time to lay low and live off the drug 
money they made.

E3. 1985

Mid 1980's (1984 or 1985) - Salvatore is in a power struggle in Sicily 
("the old country") over control of the Leone Mafia Family.  
Salvatore's brother is involved in the battle as well but Salvatore 
manages to win control of the family.  He comes to Liberty City some 
time after.

1985 - It can be assumed that sometime in the mid 1980's (1984 or 1985) 
that CJ, Sweet, Big Smoke, and Ryder started up the Grove Street 
Families in Los Santos.  This is based on the confirmation that the 
group existed and was pretty well organized by 1987.

It can be assumed that while Victor and Lance Vance were away from Vice 
City, Ricardo Diaz took over their business and became the most 
powerful crime boss in Vice City.

E4. 1986

The events of GTA Vice City.

Tommy Vercetti is released from jail this year after serving 15 years 
in prison for murder and drug dealing.  Tommy has always had his 
suspicions that he was set up by the Forelli Family but welcomes the 
opportunity to get back to work.  Sonny decides to send Tommy down to 
Vice City in order to keep him out of Liberty City.  Sonny worries that 
Liberty City gangs will remember Tommy from what he has done and if 
he's seen walking the streets it'll be "bad for business".  Tommy is 
sent down to Vice City with $3 million dollars.  He's ordered to use 
the money to purchase some drugs and start up the Forelli operations 
down there.  Tommy arrives in Vice City and meets the Forelli contact, 
Ken Rosenburg.  Ken drives Tommy and two Forelli men to a meeting point 
for the deal and upon arriving they see a helicopter fly in and a man 
gets out with two briefcases.  These are the Vance brothers (Lance is 
in the helicopter). Tommy and the Forelli men get out and walk up to 
him. They look over the merchandise as the man looks over the money.  
Suddenly, they're shot at killing the two Forelli men and the drug 
dealer.  Tommy jumps in the car with Ken and they take off as the 
helicopter flies away.  While they're driving back Ken is hysterical 
because he knows that the Forelli's won't be happy that the drugs and 
money are gone.  Tommy tells him to relax and they'll start fixing this 
problem in the morning.  Ken stops at his office and enters while Tommy 
heads off to his new hotel room at the Ocean View.  He calls up Sonny 
to inform him of the situation and Sonny starts off by remembering old 
times and then asks about the deal.  Tommy gives it to Sonny straight 
that the drugs and money are gone.  Sonny is angered by this and as he 
lashes out, Tommy guarantees him that he'll get the money back and 
"mail you the dicks of those responsible".  Sonny states that he knows 
Tommy will and if it was anyone else they would be dead.  The call ends 
with a pissed of Tommy throwing the phone.

In the morning, Tommy visits Ken Rosenburg's law office.  He hears on 
the radio that all the bridges in Vice City have been closed do to an 
approaching hurricane.  Ken indicates that he's been up all night 
worrying.  Tommy tells him to calm down and that they need to get into 
the loop to find out information.  Ken offers Tommy his party 
invitation on board Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez' boat.  He's the man 
that helped set up the deal and Tommy takes the invitation and heads 
over, stopping at Rafael's clothing store to get more appropriate 
clothing.  Tommy enters the yacht and is welcomed by Colonel Cortez who 
shares his distress and apologizes for the problems with the deal 
stating that he's launched a full investigation into what happened.  
Colonel Cortez' daughter walks up and he introduces her (Mercedes).  
Mercedes takes Tommy around the rest of the party and names off some of 
the key people.  Just as they're talking a short, loud man shows up and 
congratulates the colonel on his party.  Ricardo Diaz is his name and 
he calls out to Mercedes.  She says that she's leaving with Tommy to go 
back into town.  As they walk out Tommy is instructed to take her to 
the Pole Position Strip Club and once they arrive she states how she 
hopes to see him around.  Upon returning to Ken's office, Tommy finds 
him even more paranoid.  Ken asks what he found out but Tommy states, 
"that there are more criminals in this town than in prison."  

Tommy wants a lead from the streets and Ken refers him to Kent Paul 
who's a usual gossip magnet and is always at the Malibu.  Tommy meets 
him there and pushes Kent around for some information.  Kent informs 
him that a chef on Ocean Drive has been acting "pleased with himself" 
and that Tommy should check him out.  He heads over and finds the chef 
(who's name is Leo Teal, thanks to Viogamer for that reminder) on a 
cell phone.  When the chef is uncooperative, Tommy kills him.  Tommy 
takes his phone and is met by another man.  This is Lance Vance.  Lance 
states that they're on the same side and should work together.  When 
Tommy rejects him, three of the chef's friends appear and chase them.  
They enter Lance's car and make the getaway.  They talk for a bit and 
Lance drops him off at the Ocean View stating that he'll be watching 

Tommy goes back to Ken's office to check on him.  Ken was still nervous 
and stated that Tommy had to go and make some jurors change their minds 
or Sonny Forelli's cousin, Giorgio, would go to jail.  Tommy managed to 
wreck two juror's cars which helped them change their minds and headed 
back to Ken's office to see what he's come up with.  Upon entering he 
finds Ken sitting down with an elderly man named Avery Carrington.  
Avery needs Tommy's help and in return he will help take care of any of 
the people giving Tommy trouble.  Tommy thinks that's fair and listens 
to Avery talk about a company that he wants out of business.  Tommy 
heads over to the business, starts a riot with a group of striking 
workers, enters the facility and destroys their work trucks.  Upon 
finishing this job, Tommy is called by Colonel Cortez to come meet him 
when he can.  He also does some more work for Avery including killing a 
man at the Leaf Links Golf Course in order to obtain some land and 
destroying a building under construction so he can purchase it and put 
up his own.

Tommy finally heads over to Cortez' yacht and when he arrives he's 
informed by Cortez that one of his men, Gonzalez, may have leaked the 
information about the drug deal to someone.  Cortez states that he's 
been carrying Gonzalez for years and it's time for Tommy to end it.  
Tommy travels over to Gonzalez' apartment right away and kills him.  He 
returns to Cortez' boat for more missions although he grows tired as he 
isn't getting closer to his money.  Tommy meets a courier at the 
Washington Mall to pick up some technology.  When the French Police 
show up, the courier runs but Tommy chases him down and kills him.  
Cortez then trusts Tommy with watching over a drug deal between Cortez' 
friend, Ricardo Diaz, and some Cubans.  Lance joins Tommy for this task 
and they manage to kill the Haitians that try to break up the deal and 
Diaz is appreciative of Tommy for this.  Looking around for Lance after 
the deal, Tommy can't find him.  At the same time, Tommy receives a 
call from Ricardo thanking him again.  He invites Tommy over to his 
mansion to help him out with some stuff.

Tommy is quick to head over to Diaz' mansion on Starfish Island as he's 
beginning to suspect that Diaz is the one that broke up Tommy's drug 
deal.  When Tommy arrives at Diaz' mansion, Diaz is pissed off like 
normal and he asks who Tommy is but remembers and apologizes for being 
agitated.  He states that a dealer of his is taking an extra cut of his 
profits and Diaz requests that Tommy follows him and finds out where he 
takes it.  Tommy gets to the man's house and chases after him.  He 
enters a car with another man and Tommy is in pursuit.  The dealer 
shoots at Tommy but misses with all the shots.  Tommy eventually 
follows him to a rundown house on Prawn Island and Tommy reports back 
to Diaz.  Diaz says that the house is a fortress at ground level and 
must be attacked from the sky; therefore, he assigns Quentin (Lance 
Vance) to fly Tommy out to the house.  As Tommy and Lance go to the 
helicopter, Tommy finds that Lance has come to the same conclusion 
about Diaz being the one to ruin their deal.  Tommy tells Lance to stay 
out of it and let him handle it but Lance disagrees.  They enter the 
helicopter and fly over to the island.  Tommy takes out most of the men 
on the roof and adjacent buildings before Lance drops him off.  Tommy 
is left to enter the building, clean out the rest of the men, and 
obtain the cash after which he's picked up by Lance and they head back 
to Diaz' mansion (for cookies and milk!).  The radio also announces 
that the hurricane has passed and the bridges are all open again.

As Tommy sorts through the information he's been obtaining he receives 
a call from Colonel Cortez who tells Tommy to come see him as he has 
more work for him.  Tommy has also received several calls from Sonny 
Forelli who's growing more and more impatient with Tommy producing no 
results.  Heading over to the colonel's yacht, Tommy knows that the 
colonel may have some more information for him regarding Tommy's deal.  
When Tommy arrives he finds that Cortez also believes that Diaz was the 
one that stole the drugs and money but Cortez has another matter for 
Tommy to attend to.  He needs Tommy to steal a tank from an army convoy 
and bring it to his lock up.  Tommy heads over and stops the convoy 
when he attacks it and takes out most of the soldiers.  He gets in the 
tank and a detonation count down is activated.  Knowing that he doesn't 
have much time, Tommy heads over to the hold and Cortez' men disarm the 

Wanting to keep up his relationship with Diaz, Tommy heads back and 
Diaz tasks him with stealing a new boat from the boatyard.  It's said 
to be the fastest boat out there and Diaz needs it.  Tommy heads over 
and encounters some security guards who he kills, steals the boat, and 
heads back to Diaz' mansion.  Arriving there he goes and talks with 
Diaz about a dealer that comes to Vice City once a month and sells its 
cargo to the first boat that reaches it.  Tommy heads to Diaz' new boat 
again and when he arrives he finds Lance waiting for him in the boat.  
They agree to team up for this mission.  As they head to the dealer 
Lance asks Tommy why they won't finish Diaz off now.  Tommy says that, 
"the more we learn now, the less we have to learn when we take this 
town over".  Lance agrees.  Finding the competition to be in abundance, 
Tommy continues on and gets to the dealer first.  He purchases the 
goods.  However, the other buyers won't let them leave alive with the 
drugs and they chase after him.  Lance takes control of the wheel as 
Tommy fires back at the other dealers on boat, on land, and in a 
helicopter.  They make it back and Tommy delivers the drugs to Diaz.

Tommy promptly receives a call from Lance stating that they can and 
should take out Diaz now.  Tommy states that they'll do it eventually 
or they'll be dead and later on Tommy receives a call from Kent Paul 
with information about Lance.  Tommy heads to the Malibu Club right 
away as he has a feeling the information isn't good.  Arriving at the 
club, Tommy finds his suspicions to be correct as Lance tried to jump 
Diaz but was captured instead and he's being held at the junkyard by 
Diaz' men and doesn't have long to live.  Tommy heads over to the 
junkyard upset at Lance ruining his plan.  Arriving there he finds 
heavy security which he breaks through it and finds Lance in a 
warehouse at the far end.  Tommy is pissed off at Lance for jumping the 
gun but Lance merely states, "He killed my brother.  What do you want 
me to do?  Mow his lawn?"  Tommy and Lance leave the junkyard but are 
chased by more of Diaz' men.  They lose them and Tommy takes Lance to 
the hospital, telling Lance to meet him outside Diaz' mansion.  A while 
later, Lance joins Tommy outside the walls of Diaz' estate.  Lance 
opens the trunk to his car and reveals some heavy weaponry.  They enter 
Diaz' property and kill all of his men outside before entering the 
mansion and kill the men in there too.  Once they reach the central 
hallway they are confronted by Diaz.  He yells at Tommy for betraying 
him.  Tommy and Lance gun down Ricardo Diaz but he isn't dead.  They 
walk over to a crawling Diaz as he yells at Tommy for betraying him and 
ruining his house.  Tommy and Lance decide to finish the job and they 
both shoot him point blank.  They've destroyed the Diaz Gang and are 
now free to rule Vice City their way.

Soon after, Tommy heads to see Colonel Cortez as he says he's in 
desperate need of his help.  Tommy heads in to find Cortez preparing to 
leave Vice City.  Tommy offers to be an extra gun and Cortez is 
grateful for his help.  As they proceed along the river they're chased 
by some federal agents on boats.  The men on Cortez' boat, Tommy 
included, destroy these ships but there's another setback.  There's a 
block of ships under the next bridge.  They destroy the ships even 
while being attacked by some helicopters and Cortez thanks Tommy for 
everything and asks him to watch his daughter, Mercedes.  Tommy states 
that Mercedes can take care of herself but he'll watch her.  As a 
parting gift, Cortez offers Tommy his personal launch boat.  Tommy 
heads back to his newly acquired mansion and begins to setup his 

Entering the house Tommy meets up with Avery, Rosenburg, and Lance as 
they discuss the next steps in their new business.  Avery suggest real 
estate while Ken goes over the interior decorating of the mansion.  
Lance brings up that the businesses in Vice City know that Diaz is dead 
and they won't pay protection.  Tommy has a plan to make them pay and 
he heads over to the North Point Mall to destroy several of the 
business displays and setups to make sure they know who they're dealing 
with.  Tommy returns to the mansion with the success of this.  The 
stores will now pay protection.

As Tommy returns, he finds Lance sitting at the bar.  Tommy asks what 
the problem is and Lance states that a local bar is refusing to pay 
protection but he'll handle it.  Tommy isn't satisfied with Lance 
sitting around and decides to take care of it himself so he grabs 2 
guys and heads over to Ocean Drive and kills the guards there.  Talking 
with the owner he finds that DC Security has been paid to protect them. 
Tommy goes to DC Security's office and takes out the security guards.  
He heads back to his mansion again and when he arrives he finds Lance 
yelling at a man named Mike because he was supposed to torch a store in 
the mall and screwed up the fuses.  Lance suggests that they leave as 
the cops will find out it was them soon enough but Tommy doesn't like 
that idea.  He's worked too hard for what he has and he knows that the 
police investigation will take time so he proposes that Lance and 
himself head to the mall and fix the bomb.  But first they need police 
uniforms so they head out and lure two officers into a garage and take 
their gear.  Grabbing a cop car they head to the mall which is crawling 
with security and head in.  They find the store and fix the bomb and as 
they run from the store it blows up and they're quickly chased after by 
the police forces.  Tommy and Lance loose the cops and make it back to 
the mansion.  A short time later Tommy receives a call from a very 
emotional Lance telling Tommy not to treat him like a little kid and 
cut him a fair slice.  Tommy reassures him that he'd never stab him in 
the back but Lance has been screwing up.  Tommy tells Lance to take 
some time off.

Building his empire up, Tommy decides to buy some companies as fronts.  
He purchase the Malibu Club, Kaufmann's Cab, Cherry Popper Ice Cream, 
the Printworks, and several others.  When Tommy purchases the club he 
realizes that he needs some funds in order to restore the club.  He 
decides that he needs to rob the Vice City Bank to "withdrawal" the 
funds needed.  However, Tommy knows that he needs to get a team 
together.  He first breaks an explosive expert, Cam Jones, out of 
prison and then beats a weapons specialist, Phil Cassidy, in a gun 
shootout to gain his services.  Lastly, Tommy beats a driver, Hilary 
King, in a race to get his service.  They head to the bank and pull of 
the heist but Hilary is killed as they leave.  Cam is shot and it's 
unknown if he survives (in the game he can die or live, it doesn't 
matter).  Tommy and Phil escape and split the money and Tommy wastes no 
time in celebrating as he performs some tasks for his other businesses 
in order to ensure their success.  His most proud purchase, Printworks, 
is where Tommy has fond memories of helping his father when he was 
young at a similar facility.  Tommy steals some plates so the printers 
can start printing money.

Tommy has finally established himself in Vice City.  But he has much to 
do still and returns to see Avery and perform one finally job for him.  
Avery introduces Tommy to his new apprentice, Donald Love, and informs 
Tommy that "nothing brings down real estates prices quicker than a good 
old-fashioned gang war".  He continues by stating that a Haitian leader 
has been killed and no one's sure if the rival Cubans have done it but 
Avery wants to make them sure.  He suggests that Tommy dresses like a 
Cuban, crashes the funeral and kills the other Haitian leaders.  Tommy 
agrees and heads off to Little Haiti.  Upon arrival, Tommy finds heavy 
security but he breaks through and kills most of the Haitians in the 
process.  Tommy then takes out the leaders and leaves Little Haiti.  

Once Tommy is finished he gets a call from the Cuban leader, Umberto 
Robina, who wants to meet with him.  Tommy heads over but also gets a 
call from Kent Paul suggesting he come see him at the recording studio.  
Tommy continues to Umberto's cafe in Little Havana.  He arrives and 
Umberto mocks him at first and asks if he has big "cojones".  He 
suggests that Tommy take out their boat and prove himself to which 
Tommy does successfully and heads back to Umberto's.  When he's heading 
back, Tommy receives a call from a women named Auntie Poulet; she 
suggests that he comes to see her.  Returning to the cafe, Umberto 
requests that Tommy goes and backs up some of his men in Little Haiti.  
Tommy grabs a car and 3 Cubans and heads over.  They fight their way in 
and steal a Haitian van and take it back to the cafe.  Tommy is again 
requested by Umberto to help him with taking out the Haitians.  This 
time Umberto wants Tommy to disrupt a Haitian deal, steal the cash and 
drugs, and bring it back to him.  Tommy heads over and kills everyone.  
He grabs the cash and drugs and races back to the cafe chased by cops 
and Haitians.

Tommy decides he needs to break from this and heads over to Auntie 
Poulet's house.  There, Tommy seems to be in a fog and under the powers 
of Auntie Poulet.  She tells Tommy that he needs to recover some simple 
magical powders from around town for him as the Cubans have told the 
cops they're illegal drugs.  Tommy heads around town and acquires these 
powders, brining them back.  He enters the house and again forgets what 
he's doing there.  Auntie Poulet wants Tommy to kill Cubans and destroy 
their supply boats.  Tommy doesn't resist killing his allied gang as 
he's under Auntie Poulet's power.  He drives to a van and takes control 
of some miniature planes and bombs the boats.  Later Tommy comes back 
to Auntie Poulet's house, still in a fog, and she instructs him to use 
a sniper rifle and help the Haitians beat the Cubans in a street fight.  
Tommy does so and helps them succeed even after the Cubans bring in 
reinforcements.  Auntie Poulet calls Tommy afterwards and releases him 
from her hold.

Tommy, free again, heads back to Umberto's cafe, completely unaware of 
what he's done for Auntie Poulet.  When Tommy arrives he's met with an 
angry Umberto who suggests that Tommy is two-faced since the Haitians 
are laughing at him and Tommy simply says that Umberto is the reason 
for this but he can help him out.  Umberto wants to end the Haitian 
threat by destroying their drug factory.  Tommy gets a Haitian car and 
heads into the drug factory area with the other Cubans and plants some 
bombs.  Tommy and the Cubans run for their lives as the place explodes 
in a huge fireball.  Umberto hears of the success and tells Tommy that 
he's a Cuban to them.

Tommy has finally settled the unrest in Little Haiti and Havana so he 
heads to the recording studio to meet Kent Paul.  He finds Love Fist 
there with him and complements the guys on their music.  Tommy performs 
several jobs for them including killing a stalker, who comes back and 
tries to kill them, getting security for the concert by doing some jobs 
for the local Biker gang, and driving them to the concert.  They're 
thankful for Tommy's help and Tommy has now gained another ally in the 

Tommy's in full control but soon he's called by Sonny stating that he's 
coming down to collect.  Tommy heads over to the Printworks and finds 
that some of Sonny's collectors have come there.  He leaves to stop the 
collectors from getting all his facilities.  Tommy meets up with them 
and quickly kills the men and Tommy knows that Sonny will be extremely 
pissed off now and will be coming down himself.  Tommy rushes back to 
his mansion on Starfish Island and gathers $3 million for Sonny.  The 
money is fake and Tommy hopes that this will make Sonny happy.  Sonny 
arrives and Tommy hands off the money, however, Lance reveals that he's 
now working for the Forelli's and has told them about the fake money.  
Sonny questions Tommy on this and Tommy merely states that he "just 
wanted to piss you (Sonny) off before I killed you."  Lance informs 
Sonny where the real money is and Tommy runs up to his office to 
protect his safe.  Sonny sends in several men but Tommy takes care of 
them and chases after Lance who is heading for the roof.  Tommy meets 
Lance there and shows no compassion as he kills Lance and heads back to 
his office.  Tommy meets up with Sonny and his guards.  Tommy kills 
Sonny's guards and then kills Sonny.  Tommy watches Sonny die and then 
realizes that his empire is free.  He's left to run Vice City as he 
sees fit.

The events of 'The Introduction' (GTA San Andreas special DVD)

Officers Frank Tenpenny and Eddie Pulaski are assigned a new partner to 
join them in the Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums 
(C.R.A.S.H.) division.  His name is Officer Jimmy Hernandez.  Hernandez 
is a good cop that wants to help the city of Los Santos from the drug 
dealing crime that has overtaken it.  Hernandez joins Tenpenny and 
Pulaski and they start to show him the ropes.  Tenpenny discusses how 
sometimes you have to let the little guys go in order to get the bigger 
ones.  He says the only way to fight crime is to control it and 
Hernandez needs to understand that.  Hernandez says he does and they 
begin to teach him more.

In the meantime, the Grove Street Families have fallen apart thanks to 
the influence of drugs. Big Smoke has tried time and time again to 
convince Sweet that his stance on drugs is what's killing the family.  
Big Smoke tries to turn Sweet but it won't work.  However, Big Smoke is 
successful in getting Ryder to see the bigger picture and join him in 
the drug business.  They meet with Tenpenny who comes up with a plan to 
help end the Grove Street Families.

Later, a green Sabre is seen heading towards Grove Street in the night.  
It heads down the street and suddenly opens fire on the houses.  Sweet 
and everyone else stays out of the way.  Sweet comes out blasting but 
then sees his fallen mother in her doorway. He rushes over but sees 
she's dead.  Kendl comes over but Sweet stops her and hugs her.  Sweet 
calls up CJ in Liberty City and tells him what happened.  CJ decides to 
come home.

The next day Officer Tenpenny, Pulaski, and Hernandez have beat the 
crap out of another cop.  Tenpenny identifies him as Officer Pendelbury 
who's trying to get in his way and stop Tenpenny and the C.R.A.S.H. 
members.  Tenpenny suggests that Hernandez shoots Pendelbury to prove 
he's willing to do what it takes to save the streets.  Hernandez is 
hesitant but Tenpenny helps him and he shoots Pendelbury.

The events of GTA San Andreas

CJ is making the long trip home after finding out his mom was killed by 
a drive-by.  Landing in Los Santos International Airport he grabs his 
bag and a taxi out front.  But the taxi only gets part of the way to 
Grove Street as it's pulled over by a police car.  They demand that the 
passenger, CJ, get out and lie down on the ground.  CJ complies and 
finds that it's Officer Tenpenny, Pulaski, and the new guy, Hernandez.  
Pulaski tells the cab to take off even though he has CJ's bag in the 
trunk.  Tenpenny takes CJ's money and they enter the car and drive off.  
CJ asks what Tenpenny wants since he's clean now and only came back for 
his mom's funeral.  Tenpenny then places the blame of Officer 
Pendelbury's death on CJ.  The officer was gunned down "not 10 minutes 
ago" and now it's being blamed on CJ.  The C.R.A.S.H. team get a 
transmission over the radio about the murder and are asked to 
investigate so they toss CJ out of the car and head over there.  CJ 
tells them not to leave him since he's in Ballas' territory.  They 
ignore him and take off.  He stands for a minute realizing that he's 
been forced back into all the crap he left 5 years ago.  He grabs a 
bike near him and pedals his way back to his old neighbourhood.

Upon arriving, CJ enters his mom's house and is overcome with emotion.  
He remembers back when Brian was killed and the pain is too much.  
Finding a picture of his mom, he sits at the table and thinks about the 
situation.  Suddenly, a large man runs in holding a baseball bat and 
threatening him.  CJ recognizes him as Big Smoke and after a few 
seconds Big Smoke remembers, drops the bat, and hugs CJ.  He asks if 
CJ's ok and CJ simply states that, "Na man, it's my mom".  Big Smoke 
says that they should head over to the cemetery for the funeral.  Once 
they arrive at the cemetery they find Sweet, Kendl, and Ryder standing 
over the grave.  CJ walks up and hugs Kendl but Sweet immediately 
blasts him for missing the funeral and running out 5 years ago.  Kendl 
is tired of listening to this so she heads off to see her boyfriend, a 
Mexican.  Sweet stops her and says she can't date him but she merely 
walks off.  As she does, Sweet states how bad things are and proceeds 
to show CJ the graves of dead Grove Street Family members.  Big Smoke, 
Ryder, Sweet, and CJ head back to Big Smoke's car.  As they do a group 
of Ballas pop out and blow up the car with gunfire.  The four of them 
grab bikes and pedal all the way back to Grove Street.  Once they 
arrive the four men split up to do their own thing.

A short time later, CJ gets a call from Sweet informing him that the 
groups that formed the Grove Street Families have split and have been 
fighting among themselves.  CJ takes the advice and heads to Ryder's 
house to find him loading a gun.  Ryder states his displeasure for a 
local pizza place that covered up his graffiti tags on their building.  
He wants to show them a lesson and asks if CJ wants to come along which 
he agrees to.  On the way over Ryder begins to criticize CJ's look and 
suggests he gets a haircut first which CJ does at a local barber shop.  
They walk into the pizza place afterwards and CJ orders some food but 
Ryder runs up and attempts to rob the place.  The clerk knows it's 
Ryder and is unimpressed.  CJ argues with Ryder and the clerk pulls out 
a shotgun and chases them.  Ryder and CJ hoop back in the car and head 
back to Grove Street.  On the way back Ryder suggests that CJ go see 
Sweet who's also upset about the graffiti tags.  CJ heads over to Sweet 
and they go for a drive.  They head to Ballas turf and spray the Grove 
Street logos over 6 of the Ballas tags and head back home.  CJ and 
Sweet have things to do so they agree to meet up later.  CJ immediately 
receives a call from Officer Hernandez warning CJ not to leave town.

He goes back to Sweet's house and finds Ryder sitting with Sweet.  
Sweet is pissed that drugs have destroyed the gang and he wants Ryder 
and CJ to clean things up.  They head over to see some old friends, Big 
Bear and B-Dup.  When they arrive they find that B-Dup is now a drug 
dealer and Big Bear has become a slave to him for drugs.  B-Dup tells 
them to screw off and slams the door.  CJ is beginning to see how bad 
things have become and they decide to take out some drug dealers.  The 
boys head outside and find that a drug dealer is selling to one of 
their men and they kill him.  Ryder recognizes the guy and says that he 
lives in Idlewood so CJ and Ryder proceed over there and break in on 
some Ballas and kill them.  Ryder and CJ go back home and agree to meet 
up later.

When CJ heads back to Sweet's house he finds the boys heading out to go 
eat.  CJ drives them to a Cluckin' Bell.  On the way they discuss CJ's 
mom and how a Green Sabre was seen speeding away after.  They pull up 
and order the food, however, when they receive it a Ballas' car notices 
them and begins shooting.  They chase after the Ballas and are able to 
kill them while Big Smoke decides to sit back and eat.  On the way back 
they realize that Big Smoke ate all the food.  CJ drops the men off at 
their houses and notes that Big Smoke has moved to Idlewood.  A short 
while later, CJ heads to Sweet's house and finds him with all the boys.  
They discuss that the family needs to get some firepower if they're to 
face off with the Ballas.  CJ recommends Emmet while the others tell 
him they aren't close to Emmet anymore.  CJ reinstates that they need 
to go back to someone that has always been there for them.  So Big 
Smoke and CJ head off to Emmet's and when they arrive Emmet jumps out 
and almost shoots the men.  Emmet then realizes who they are and shows 
them his stock.  Big Smoke notes how crappy the weapons are but they 
take some handguns and buy them.  Upon returning Big Smoke back home, 
Sweet calls CJ and accuses him of not supporting the family because he 
hasn't been dressed in their colours.  CJ apologizes and heads to the 
nearest clothing store and purchases some green clothing to support the 
gang.  He heads to Sweet's house and the men all decide to do a drive-
by on some Ballas to show them that Grove Street is back.  Heading over 
to Idlewood they attack a group of Ballas and kill them.  Afterwards, 
they head to Glen Park and kill another group of Ballas but the police 
show up.  They avoid the cops and make it back to Grove Street, 
agreeing to meet later.

CJ heads back to Sweet's house and finds no one home but gets a call 
from Sweet who's pinned down in Seville by a former allied faction, the 
Seville Boulevard Families.  CJ races over and takes out the gunmen and 
picks up Sweet and his girl.  They lose the Seville men and head back 
to Sweet's house where CJ drops them off.  When CJ heads into Sweet's 
house the next day he finds Sweet argue with Kendl.  She's going to go 
see Cesar and Sweet can't stop her so she leaves and before CJ can say 
anything Sweet tells him to follow her and see what his problem is.  So 
CJ heads off, grabs a low-rider, and heads to the meeting place by 
Unity Station where he's challenged to some hydraulics competition.  CJ 
wins and Kendl runs over to congratulate him.  Cesar comes over and 
congratulates him too but CJ becomes protective when he touches Kendl.  
Kendl tries to calm CJ while Cesar holds back his boys.  Cesar and CJ 
talk and agree to be cool with each other for Kendl.  After they leave, 
Cesar calls CJ and ask if he wants to be in some illegal racing which 
CJ agrees to and drives over to Cesar's house.  When he arrives Cesar 
and Kendl lead him to the race.  It's a low-rider race and CJ ends up 
winning it.  The next day he arrives at Ryder's who wants to steal some 
guns, for the family, from a retired military guy and they head over to 
his house.  CJ sneaks in, grabs the weapons, and they drive the truck 
back to a storage garage.  Ryder insults CJ for complaining the entire 
time before they split up.

The Grove Street Families are starting to gain their influence back 
thanks to CJ.  He heads to Ryder's house and after a few minutes, 
Officer Tenpenny and his men arrive to give CJ and Ryder a hard time.  
They give the boys an assignment and tell them to head over to a train.  
CJ and Ryder arrive to find some Vagos there who they kill along with 
the Ballas who show up.  Tenpenny must have told every gang in town.  
Once it's clear CJ hoops on the train and Ryder follows in his car.  CJ 
tosses some boxes to Ryder, gets off, and they head back to Ryder's.  
Some time later, CJ meets Ryder who suggests they get some top grade 
weapons from the National Guard.  CJ's worried but Ryder insults him 
and he gives in.  They head to Ocean Docks and CJ sneaks in the base 
killing any guards that get in his way.  He opens the fence for Ryder 
to enter in the truck and they load it up.  They make a getaway but the 
National Guard gives chase but CJ loses them and drives the truck to 
Emmet's for storage.

After all this heated action CJ decides he needs a break.  He heads to 
Big Smoke's who says that he needs to go pick up a member of the family 
in jail.  They drive to the police department and out comes Jeffrey.  
CJ comments on Jeffrey's look at he argues back that his name is OG 
Loc.  Sweet tells him to go to college and get a real life but OG Loc 
ignores him and wants to head to some gangster's house for payback.  OG 
Loc and CJ go to the house but Sweet and Big Smoke want nothing to do 
with it.  When they knock on the door OG Loc yells at the person inside 
who says he's OG Loc's lover.  OG Loc states that he took advantage of 
him when he dropped the soap.  The man escapes on his bike and they 
chase him but catch up and kill him.  CJ laughs at OG Loc who tells him 
to keep it quiet.  CJ drives OG Loc to the Burger Shot in Marina and 
drops him off.  CJ then heads back to Big Smoke's house.  

Big Smoke asks CJ to come along as he's going to pick up a Mexican 
cousin, Mary.  When they arrive in East Los Santos CJ figures it out 
that Mary is another term for weed.  Big Smoke asks some Vagos and they 
insult him so he kills one of them with a bat and the other takes off.  
CJ and Big Smoke follow him but Big Smoke can't run too far and cheers 
CJ on.  CJ catches up with him and kill the Vagos.  Big Smoke and CJ 
head back to Smoke's house separately and meet up.  Big Smoke wants to 
follow a lead that will get them "deep in the game".  They head to 
Unity Station and find some Vagos make a run for it on top of a train.  
They get on a bike and drive alongside it as Big Smoke shoots the Vagos 
and CJ avoids the other trains and a destroyed car.  Big Smoke kills 
them and they return to his house.  

The next day CJ comes back to Big Smoke's house and Big Smoke needs to 
run an errand.  They arrive at the Atrium and Big Smoke tells CJ to 
wait outside.  CJ admires a woman for about 2 seconds before Big Smoke 
yells and CJ runs in.  CJ enters the building and faces a shootout 
between Big Smoke and some Russians.  CJ and Smoke kill them and go 
outside to find more Russians who they get rid of.  They grab a 
motorcycle and take off with Big Smoke driving and CJ shooting at the 
Russians giving chase in cars, bikes, and a truck.  They go through the 
waterways and the Russians are killed in a huge fireball.  The 2 men 
split up.

CJ decides to go check on how OG Loc is doing in his new job at the 
Burger Shot.  He finds OG Loc cleaning up some floors and mocks him 
since OG Loc said he was a "Hygiene Technician".  OG Loc says that he 
needs a sound system and heard a great one in a van that was heading 
over to the beach so CJ goes down there.  He finds the van and gets 
friendly with the owner by showing her some dance moves.  He gets in 
the van, takes off, and brings it to a lockup for storage.  When he 
arrives back at the Burger Shot he finds that OG Loc wants him to steal 
well known rapper, Madd Dogg's, rhyme book.  CJ only agrees if it'll 
stop OG Loc from singing the garbage he does.  CJ goes to Madd Dogg's 
mansion in Vinewood and sneaks in.  CJ grabs the rhyme book and runs 
out, back to the Burger Shot.  He delivers the book and receives a call 
from Officer Tenpenny telling him to come see him but CJ decides to 
talk to OG Loc first.

OG Loc is upset because Madd Dogg's manager is on him for stealing the 
rhymes and CJ is ordered to take care of it.  He grabs the manager's 
limo and drives to a location where all the security cars meet.  The 
manager gets in the car and CJ drives off and losses the other cars.  
He goes down to the pier and jumps out of the car, sending it into the 
water which kills the manager since he can't swim.  When CJ heads back 
to the Burger Shot to deliver the good news he finds OG Loc quitting 
and leaving.  OG Loc says that this violates his parole and he's going 
back to jail so he wants to throw a party at his house before he goes 
back to prison.  CJ gets some new clothes and goes to OG Loc's house 
only to walk in on OG Loc with some bad singing.  The boys decide to go 
outside and get away from the awful sounds.  Suddenly, another member 
of the gang comes up on a bike and says that the Ballas are heading to 
Grove Street.  Sweet orders them to block the road just as the Ballas 
arrive and a shootout begins.  They manage to kill the Ballas on the 
street, on the bridge, and the ones coming from a back alley.  They 
celebrate the victory and they all go home to enjoy the night.

The next day CJ decides to visit the donut shop where he finds Tenpenny 
with his men.  Tenpenny tells CJ that he needs him to kill a gang 
banger in East Los Santos by burning his house down.  He wants no 
evidence and supplies CJ with some Molotov Cocktails.  He arrives at 
the apartment complex and immediately throws the Molotovís in the 
building.  Some Vagos come out to face him but he kills them and 
believes his mission is a success.  Suddenly, he hears the screams of a 
women in the building who is upstairs and trapped.  CJ rushes in, grabs 
a fire extinguisher, and finds her.  He leads her out of the building 
just as it collapses.  She says her name is Denise Robinson and she 
lives off of Grove Street so CJ drives her back and they agree to see 
each other again.  CJ gets a call from Sweet about some drug dealer in 
Glen Park but heads off to the donut shop to see Officer Tenpenny 
again.  Officer Tenpenny suggests that CJ check out a warehouse in 
Ocean Docks where the Ballas and Russians are meeting.  CJ heads over 
there and is attacked outside the warehouse but fights his way in.  CJ 
kills the Ballas and Russians in the building and chases after the 
Russian leader.  Finally, CJ catches up to him and kills him.

A short time later, CJ heads over to the Ammunation that Sweet 
suggested and picks up some weapons.  He heads down to Glen Park and 
starts up a gang war with the Ballas.  Eventually, CJ kills all the 
Ballas and the Grove Street Families take over the area.  The drug 
dealing traitor attempts to escape but CJ runs him down and kills him.  
CJ heads over to Sweet's house and Sweet wants them to show that Grove 
Street is back and perform a major hit on the Ballas at a funeral.  CJ 
and Sweet grab some men and head over to the cemetery.  They enter and 
CJ chases after the leader, Kane, and kills him.  CJ and Sweet leave 
the area and return to Grove Street.

Sweet and CJ know they've put Grove Street on the map with their 
activities recently.  They meet up with Ryder and Big Smoke at Sweet's 
house.  Sweet wants to end the hostility between the families and a 
meeting is set to take place at Jefferson Hotel.  They drive over and 
Sweet must go in alone as one member per family is allowed.  Suddenly, 
the LSPD show up with helicopters and SWAT to storm the place.  Ryder 
and Big Smoke want to leave but CJ runs in after his brother and begins 
a search for him.  CJ finds Sweet upstairs and they head out onto the 
roof and take out a helicopter.  Just as they run around the building, 
Ryder and Big Smoke show up.  They jump in the car and CJ is trusted 
with the shooting.  He shoots at the cops following them on bikes, 
cars, and a helicopter.  Unfortunately, CJ's gun jams and Big Smoke 
drives them down a small path to get clear.  They jump out of the car 
at the last second to watch it fly off onto the freeway and cause a 
huge accident with a tanker.  The boys split up to avoid the cops.  

CJ heads to Sweet's and finds Sweet talking with some men about how 
it's time to take back the town and wants everyone to meet him under 
the Mulholland Intersection to battle it out with some Ballas.  As CJ 
leaves he gets a call from Cesar who wants CJ to come meet him because 
he has something to show CJ.  CJ says he needs to go meet up with his 
brother but Cesar insists that it's important.  So CJ heads over to 
Cesar and gets in his car.  Cesar tells CJ to watch.  He sees two 
Ballas exit a building and he's unimpressed but Cesar tells him to keep 
watching.  Suddenly, Ryder and Big Smoke come out and they roll out the 
Green Sabre that was seen the night CJ's mom was killed.  Officer 
Tenpenny also walks out.  It appears that Big Smoke has sold the family 
out.  CJ realizes that Sweet is walking into a trap and tells Cesar to 
get Kendl and leave town.  CJ races over to the Mulholland Intersection 
to find a battle going on.  Sweet has been hit.  CJ takes out the 
Ballas until the cops arrive and he surrenders.  Sweet is arrested and 
taken to a hospital prison and CJ is grabbed by Tenpenny and his men.  
CJ gets a bag put over his head and they drive off.

Finally reaching a stop CJ has the bag removed and he's in a rural area 
called Angel Pine.  CJ is informed of Sweet's situation, is upset at 
Big Smoke, and Tenpenny states that Big Smoke has worked for him for a 
long time.  Officer Tenpenny gives CJ a camera and wants him to kill a 
snitch hiding on Mount Chiliad and bring back a photo for proof.  They 
kick CJ out of the car and drive off.  CJ heads up the mountain to get 
the mission over with and focus on his family's status.  He reaches the 
cabin on the mountain and kills the man along with his security, 
ensuring that he takes a photo for proof.  He heads back down and 
delivers the picture to a trailer.

CJ then receives a call from Cesar about the problems in Los Santos.  
CJ informs him to get Kendl out of town right now but Cesar says that 
he wants payback for what happened to his gang.  CJ doesn't care right 
now and orders Cesar to get Kendl to safety.  Cesar agrees and then 
tells CJ to go meet his cousin at a diner in Dillimore.  When CJ 
arrives he finds a woman facing off with some of the men.  They try to 
get near her but she cuts one with her knife.  She notices CJ and asks 
what he wants and then promptly leaves with him.  She states her name 
is Catalina and lists a series of places that she wishes to rob.  CJ 
goes for the closest place which is a gas station also in Dillimore.  
They try to rob the station but the glass of the store is bullet-proof 
and the doors are locked.  Catalina changes the plan and decides to 
take the tanker.  They grab a truck and hook up the tanker while the 
gas station attendants get in their car and follow.  They take care of 
the attendants and head to Flint County to a truck stop.  Catalina 
speaks with the owner of a truck stop and sells the truck of gas to 
him.  She gives CJ his cut and then leaves.  

CJ gets a call from someone called The Truth.  He's a friend of Officer 
Tenpenny and wants CJ to meet him in Angel Pine.  CJ heads over and 
finds Officer Tenpenny high (as a kite).  Tenpenny introduces CJ to The 
Truth but he isn't there and Tenpenny is talking with a couch.  He then 
calls Truth in and he meets CJ.  Tenpenny tells CJ that Truth will 
supply him with weed and that CJ will pay him and take it to San 
Fierro.  The Truth tells CJ about a survivalist farm that has a 
harvester that he requires and wants CJ to steal it.  CJ heads to the 
farm and manages to do just that.  He's chased by some of the people 
but he losses them and takes the harvester to The Truth's farm.

CJ receives a call from Cesar that he and Kendl are in Angel Pine.  He 
heads over and meets up with them.  CJ is told that Big Smoke is the 
main pusher in Los Santos and that he gets shipments from San Fierro 
twice a week.  CJ is upset at learning this information but says he'll 
look out for the couriers.  CJ leaves and gets a call from Catalina 
wondering where he's.  He decides to meet her at her house and when he 
gets there she holds him at gun point and indicates her love for CJ.  
They head off to a bank in order to rob it.  Once they enter CJ is in 
charge of watching the people while Catalina gets the money.  One of 
them manages to hit the alarm and Catalina is pissed off.  CJ grabs the 
money from the ATMs and Catalina grabs the money she obtained.  They go 
out the back of the building and find the cops waiting for them.  CJ 
and Catalina make their way through the alley and kill the police.  
They steal 2 police bikes and drive off with the police chasing them.  
Catalina gets ahead of CJ and gets knocked off her bike by a police 
cruiser.  CJ manages to get there and take out the cops and she hoops 
on CJ's bike so they can head to Catalina's hideout.  CJ takes his cut 
and after leaving Catalina's house he receives a call from Cesar about 
illegal street racers who come out to the rural areas to avoid the 
cops.  Cesar tells CJ to head over when he gets a chance.  CJ then 
decides to visit Catalina again (not a smart man, is he?).

Upon heading back to Catalina's, CJ is brought inside and "punished" 
for not keeping in touch with her.  Afterwards they head to Blueberry 
to rob a liquor store but when they arrive they find that 4 armed men 
have already robbed the store.  Catalina kills one and they give chase 
on his ATV.  They catch up with the other men, kill them, and grab the 
money.  CJ takes Catalina back to her place and returns a while later 
after a call from Catalina ordering him to be there.  Catalina yells at 
him for not being loyal and says she wants their relationship to be 
business from now on.  They head out to Montgomery to a betting shop 
and enter.  CJ uses some explosives to blow open the safe and grab the 
money.  They grab a car, lose the cops, and then head back to 
Catalina's house where CJ drops her off.

CJ has acquired a good amount of cash and gets himself a fast car.  He 
heads over to Montgomery and arrives at the race line.  He's introduced 
to an Asian man named Wu Zi Mu who prefers to be called Woozie.  They 
get in their cars and the race starts.  CJ ends up winning the race and 
after, Woozie congratulates CJ and gives him his business card in case 
CJ is in San Fierro sometime.  Everyone leaves the area except for CJ 
who is confronted by Catalina.  She breaks up with CJ and introduced 
her new man.  This is Claude (from GTA 3).  She challenges CJ to a race 
for pink slips.  CJ ends up winning the race.  Catalina, furious, hands 
over the deed to a garage in San Fierro and explains that Claude was 
"satisfying her" while he raced and that's why he lost.  Catalina and 
Claude head off to Liberty City.

CJ now decides that he needs to head to San Fierro but receives a call 
from The Truth that Tenpenny's stuff is ready and he should come pick 
it up.  He goes to pick up Tenpenny's drugs since he's headed to San 
Fierro anyways, killing 2 birds with 1 stone.  He arrives at The 
Truth's farm and hands over the money to pay for the drugs.  CJ 
inspects the van which is completely full and they hear a helicopter 
over them.  The cops have been tipped off about The Truth's pot farm.  
The Truth hands CJ a flamethrower and they burn all the plants.  The 
Truth gives CJ a rocket launcher and he takes out the helicopter.  They 
drive to CJ's newly acquired garage in San Fierro and as they enter it 
CJ feels duped by Catalina as the place is a dump.  Kendl and Cesar 
arrive shortly and Kendl calms CJ down.  They need some mechanics in 
order to start up the business.  The Truth informs CJ of some friends 
and they go to pick them up.  During these trips The Truth informs CJ 
to go to certain locations in the city.  When he does he finds a dark 
coloured van leaving and The Truth doesn't explain what it is (some 
believe that these are Mike Toreno's trucks).  After CJ brings the men 
back to his garage he gets a call from Zero.  It appears that Zero's 
landlord is looking to sell them shop so CJ purchases the building for 
Zero.  CJ helps Zero fight off his childhood rival, Berkley, and drive 
him out of town.

The next day, CJ heads back to the garage and receives a call from 
Officer Tenpenny.  He wants CJ to plant some weed in a car to frame 
someone and then call the cops.  CJ is unsure about snitching on 
someone but when Tenpenny informs CJ that it's a DA (District Attorney) 
CJ is more than willing.  He drives over to Vank Hoff Hotel and beats 
up a valet for his uniform.  When the DA arrives CJ takes his car to 
the garage, plants the drugs, and heads back to the hotel and drives it 
into the parking lot underground.  CJ hurries out as a valet comes in 
to pick up the car.  CJ reports the DA and when he gets his car the 
cops arrive and arrest him.

Arriving back at the garage he finds Kendl upset about the nearby 
construction workers.  They have been treating her like a slut.  Cesar 
wants to kill them but CJ says he'll take care of it and heads to the 
site to grab a Dozer.  He destroys 6 portable buildings and the Foreman 
comes out of a Porta Potty to see what the problem is.  The Foreman 
sees the destruction and runs back in.  CJ drives into the Porta Potty 
and pushes it into a hole.  He gets in a cement truck and buries the 
Foreman and heads back to the garage.  

When CJ enters the garage he immediately receives a call from Cesar 
who's following a Balla car heading towards San Fierro for drugs.  CJ 
heads out to meet with Cesar.  He meets up with Cesar and they head 
over to Angel Pine where a meeting is taking place.  They get on top of 
a nearby building and watch some cars pull up.  Ryder is the first to 
arrive as he represents Big Smoke.  Another car pulls up and a guy 
named T-Bone Mendez comes out.  He's the leader of the San Fierro Rifa.  
The next car to pull up containing a man wearing a business suit.  They 
don't know him yet but he's Mike Toreno.  Next is a man who looks like 
a pimp.  He's Jizzy B.  They're all part of a group called the Loco 
Syndicate who sell drugs primarily to Big Smoke in Los Santos.  Ryder 
is a representative for Big Smoke.  CJ and Cesar head away from the 
meeting, split up, and agree to meet back at the garage.

CJ arrives at the garage and Woozie shows up.  He helps CJ identify the 
men he photographed.  Woozie informs CJ that Jizzy B. helps to set up 
the deals and acts as a middleman for the group.  CJ decides he will 
enter the syndicate from this point and heads over to Jizzy's Pleasure 
Dome under the Gant Bridge.  Upon arriving, he introduces himself to 
Jizzy by stating that he's new in town and would like some work.  After 
buttering Jizzy up, CJ is tasked with finding out who's killing Jizzy's 
girls.  CJ leaves and Jizzy allows him to take his car.  CJ drives 
around and kills some thugs that are beating up Jizzy's women.  He also 
kills a prostitute and her 'sugar daddy' as she's trying to leave 
prostitution forever.  Once CJ does all this, Jizzy calls him and says 
he can keep the car as an APB has been posted on it.

CJ is now in the syndicate and can start finding out more information.  
He heads back to the Pleasure Dome and is introduced to T-Bone Mendez 
who tasks CJ with getting to an ambushed van and getting back all the 
stolen merchandise.  CJ drives over and gives chase to some thugs on 4 
bikes that have stolen the stuff inside.  He manages to chase them all 
down and get back the product.  CJ returns to the Pleasure Dome and 
drops them off.  He meets back with Jizzy and T-Bone who gets a call 
from Mike Toreno who's in another ambushed van and is trapped.  T-Bone 
and CJ head out in search of Mike.  Mike is still on the phone and he 
directs them to where he is.  CJ ends up at the airport and they rescue 
Mike who's suspicious of CJ but allows him to get them out of there.  
CJ safely drives them back to the Pleasure Domes.

Sometime later CJ arrives back at the Pleasure Dome and Jizzy instructs 
him to meet his business associate.  CJ heads to Xoomer Gas Station and 
gets in a car.  After T-Bone and Mike Toreno question him they say that 
CJ has to ensure the safety of a shipment. CJ grabs a bike and leads 
the van to a factory.  This is the Loco Syndicate's drug factory which 
CJ will need to take out eventually.  After completing this mission CJ 
heads back to the garage and is met by Tenpenny and Pulaski.  They need 
him to take care of a reporter and a snitch that's supplying the 
information.  The reporter boards a train headed for Los Santos and CJ 
follows it.  The reporter meets up with his informant on a pier and CJ 
kills them both.  Another job done for Tenpenny.  CJ heads back to San 

Now it's time for CJ to make his move and kill Jizzy in order to get 
his phone and find out more information about the drug supply.  CJ 
heads to the Pleasure Dome at night, sneaks in, and kills Jizzy B. in a 
rundown and car chase.  CJ discovers that a deal is going to happen at 
Pier 69 so he drives over and meets Cesar on top of a building across 
the street.  Woozie has agreed to supply some men for this who arrive 
on the roof of the nearby buildings.  CJ spots the men and begins to 
snipe any Rifa or Balla that they meet to secure their position.  T-
Bone Mendez and Ryder pull up and are unable to see the Triads on the 
roof.  Toreno flies in on a helicopter and notices the bodies so he 
takes off.  The Ballas throw smoke grenades as CJ and Cesar storm the 
area with the Triads.  They kill T-Bone but Ryder heads off on a boat 
and CJ follows.  CJ manages to destroy Ryder's boat and kill him but 
he's extremely upset at having to kill his long-time friend.

When Cesar and CJ meet up at the garage, Cesar has to speak with CJ and 
make sure he sees that he had no other choice but to kill Ryder.  CJ 
then receives a call from Woozie who informs him that Toreno is at a 
helipad downtown and loading up some boxes onto a helicopter and is 
preparing to leave soon.  CJ heads over immediately, kills the men 
there, and chases the helicopter.  He fires off some rockets at the 
helicopter and it explodes, killing Mike Toreno (or so he thinks).

As a sign of gratitude for Woozie's services, CJ goes to his betting 
shop to meet him.  CJ enters the betting shop apartment and meets 
Woozie who asks CJ to come along as he shows CJ how they take care of 
business in the Triad group.  They leave the apartment and head around 
the corner to the Blood Feather Triads.  Woozie informs CJ that a 
Vietnamese gang has been giving them trouble and they want to unify the 
Triad gangs for protection purposes.  When they arrive at the spot they 
find the Blood Feather Triads have all been killed except for 1 man who 
informs them it was the Vietnamese gang who did this.  Just then, the 
gang shows up to finish the job.  CJ fights them off as Woozie seems to 
have trouble finding his way.  They get in the car and manage to avoid 
the gangs and make it back to Woozie's apartment and CJ drops him off.

The next day, CJ returns to Woozie's apartment and is introduced to Ran 
Fa Li, the leader of the Red Gecko Tong.  CJ is informed that the 
Vietnamese gang is called the Da Nang Boys and that Ran Fa Li needs a 
package retrieved from the airport which Woozie suggests CJ can do.  So 
CJ goes to the airport and grabs the package but the Da Nang Boys show 
up and attack him.  CJ leaves the airport, loses them, and drops the 
package off at Pier 69 as specified by Ran Fa Li.  When he returns to 
Woozie's apartment he finds that Ran Fa Li is now trapped since the Da 
Nang Boys are watching the building and would kill him if he left.  CJ 
offers to be a decoy and lead them off so he can escape.  So CJ drives 
an old SUV out to the rural areas and leads them around the forest.  
Eventually, they catch up to CJ, see that Ran Fa Li isn't in the car 
and head back to the apartment but they're too late.  Ran Fa Li is 

He drives back to Woozie's apartment to check on him and Woozie informs 
CJ that he wants CJ to swim out to a Da Nang Boys tanker in the harbour 
and plant a bug on it so they can listen in on radio discussions.  CJ 
swims out to the tanker and avoids Da Nang Boys security around the 
area and plants the bug on the boat.  CJ swims back to shore and 
returns to Woozie's place.  Woozie informs him that the Da Nang Boys 
are making a full move to San Fierro and that's why they have been 
increasingly more aggressive with the Triads.  CJ agrees to stop their 
ship from coming in.  He boards a helicopter with some of Woozie's men 
and they fly to the ship.  After killing some of the men on the boat 
the helicopter is shot down by a rocket.  CJ is the only one to survive 
and ends up in the water.  He gets onto the boat and kills all the Da 
Nang Boys he finds.  CJ frees some prisoners in a crate and is informed 
that the leader of the Da Nang Boys, Snakehead, is on the bridge.  He 
decides to head up and is able to kill Snakehead with a sword.  CJ 
leaves the ship and has successfully ended the Da Nang Boys.

Upon speaking with Woozie again they agree to destroy the Loco 
Syndicate's drug factory and end the group for good.  CJ grabs a car 
that's rigged by one of Woozie's men with heavy explosives and takes it 
to the factory.  He breaks into the area and drives the car nears some 
of the chemical tanks.  CJ sets the timer and runs out of the building 
along with the workers.  It explodes in a huge fireball and CJ escapes 
over the wall.  This marks the end of the Loco Syndicate and Big 
Smoke's supply of drugs from San Fierro.  CJ receives a call shortly 
after by someone masking their voice.  They want CJ to come out to 
their ranch in the desert because they have information on Sweet.

CJ, not knowing what to make of this, heads out to the desert to hear 
this person's information.  When he arrives at the ranch, CJ must prove 
his driving skills in a monster truck around some checkpoints. He 
succeeds and returns to the ranch.  As he sits down, Mike Toreno sneaks 
up on CJ.  Toreno, apparently not dead, tells CJ that he's a government 
agent and needs CJ to perform some jobs for him.  Toreno wants CJ to 
call up Cesar and commandeer a truck in San Fierro.  Cesar arrives and 
it appears he was already called by CJ (Toreno using some sort of voice 
masking/ changing device).  They head onto the freeway and chase down 
the truck.  Cesar jumps on, kicks the driver out, and lets CJ get in.  
They proceed to drive it to the designated location for Toreno.  
Afterwards, CJ drives back to Toreno's house to get the information 
about his brother.  

Toreno tells CJ that Sweet is safe and he'll keep it that way as long 
as CJ helps him.  CJ agrees and Toreno now wants him to go and retrieve 
a package for him in the desert.  CJ drives out to El Castillo del 
Diablo and drops a flare so that a helicopter can come by and drop off 
the package.  As the helicopter approaches, several black helicopters 
begin to fly around and shoot at it.  CJ takes them down and the 
package is dropped off for CJ.  He grabs it and takes it back to 
Toreno's ranch.  Entering the ranch again he's now instructed by Mike 
to go to Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard and purchase it for $1 and 
if the owners don't accept then Toreno instructs CJ to kill them.  So 
CJ heads over to the aircraft graveyard and purchases it legitimately 
for $80,000.  Toreno calls him immediately and informs CJ that he'll 
need to learn how to fly for the next series of tasks Toreno has lined 
up for him.  CJ is instructed through Toreno's training with 
helicopters, planes, and parachutes.

Now that he's completed the flying school, Toreno quickly tasks CJ with 
flying supplies to his friend in Angel Pine.  CJ flies over and stays 
below the radar in order to remain undetected.  He is successful and 
returns to the airfield only to find government officials loading up a 
cargo plane.  CJ believes that they're Toreno's men but Toreno shows up 
behind him and states that they're from another agency.  Toreno wants 
CJ to get on the plane and stop them.  So CJ grabs a bike and drives 
into the plane as it takes off from the field.  Killing everyone 
inside, CJ sets a bomb, parachutes out, and blows the plane up.  He 
sails back down to Verdant Meadows as the plane descends in a ball of 

A few hours later The Truth shows up and wants CJ to come with him 
which CJ agrees to.  They head out to the middle of the desert to a 
complex that isn't listed on any map.  The Truth wants CJ to find a 
'black project' and steal it so CJ heads into the facilities 
underground.  He continues down as alarms go off and the base realizes 
someone has breached security.  CJ finds the 'black project' being 
developed and it's actually a jetpack (really cool!).  He grabs the 
pack and heads straight up and out of the base, arriving at the 
graveyard to meet The Truth.  Truth thanks CJ and takes the jetpack 
with him while CJ takes it easy afterwards.  When The Truth comes back 
to Verdant Meadows he's flying the jetpack poorly and crashes it (what 
a drunk).  Truth says he can't handle the jetpack and wants CJ to use 
it to fly to a train and steal "whatever they least want you to get".  
CJ, confused, heads over and kills the soldiers on the train.  
Searching through the boxes he finds a weird container of green stuff 
that he takes back to Truth.  Truth is amazed by it and tells CJ he can 
keep the jetpack shortly before leaving the airfield.

Soon after this, CJ is invited by Woozie out to Las Venturas to visit 
Woozie's new casino, The Four Dragons.  So he drives east to Las 
Venturas and, upon arriving, he finds a frustrated Woozie who's trying 
to start up a Triad casino in a Mafia run town.  They've captured 
someone trying to destroy their equipment and CJ says he can make the 
man talk about who he's working for.  Woozie's men tie him to the front 
of a car and CJ gets in promising a nice drive.  He drives the car 
along the strip, moving in and out of traffic, driving the wrong way on 
the street and driving on the sidewalk to freak the man out.  Soon 
enough he admits he works for the Sindacco's, one of the Mafia families 
that owns Caligula's Casino.  CJ drives him back to the casino and goes 
to meet with Woozie.  They decide that the best way to hurt Caligula's 
Casino is to rob it.  CJ informs Woozie that they need some explosives 
first and Woozie tells him to go to the quarry just outside of town.  
CJ arrives there and drives to the bottom of it.  He grabs the dynamite 
as the workers are preparing it for destruction.  The workers follow CJ 
but he heads out of the quarry and delivers the dynamite to a waiting 

When CJ gets back to the casino he talks with Woozie but an employee 
walks in with a fake chip and they agree that the Sindacco's are 
probably using their new plastic factory to produce the chips.  CJ 
decides to go visit the factory so he drives over and kills the 
Sindaccos inside.  CJ proceeds to destroy the plastic machines and 
leaves before anymore Sindaccos arrive.  As CJ drives back to the 
casino he's called by Truth who needs CJ's help.  It appears that The 
Truth took some guys out for a safari and lost them.  Truth is now in 
San Fierro and asks CJ to find them at the site they set up last night.  
CJ drives out to the site and finds Paulie and Maccer in a daze.  They 
introduce themselves and then state that they need to go to a snake 
farm in order to find the rest of the band.  Unfortunately, when they 
show up they're confronted by the owners who say that Maccer took 
advantage of their pig (sick, sick man) and begin to shot at them.  
They hoop in the car and escape to their friend Rosie's casino.  
Arriving at Caligula's Casino, CJ realizes that he has the opportunity 
to observe the casino from the inside without any suspicion.  They head 
upstairs and meet Ken Rosenburg who manages the casino.  

After CJ leaves he decides to start focusing on the plans for heist on 
Caligula's Casino now that he has full access to it.  CJ first steals 
the architectural plans for the building from the city offices.  Next 
he gets the security card for the casino from the croupier (Millie).  
Each time he meets with Woozie, more and more people are introduced to 
the plan, much to CJ's dismay.  Now, CJ heads to the dam to set 
explosives on the turbines so they can disrupt the power to Las 
Venturas during the heist.  Afterwards, CJ and some of Woozie's men 
steal cop cars and an armoured van for the heist plan.  They're now 
prepared but CJ needs to scope the place out some more so he heads back 
to Caligula's Casino to visit Rosie, Paulie, and Maccer.

When he arrives he's informed by Rosie that Johnny Sindacco needs to be 
moved from the hospital because the Forelliís are coming to kill him.  
Johnny is in a shock induced coma (caused by CJ's interrogation) and 
must be helped.  CJ goes to the hospital and finds that Johnny has 
already been moved, most likely by the Forelliís.  CJ finds the 
ambulance that took him, kills the driver, and steals it.  He drives 
back to the Sindacco factory and Johnny is now safe.  When CJ returns 
to the casino he finds Rosie freaking out but CJ tells him to take 
charge and inform everyone who the boss is around here.  Rosie and CJ 
head to the Sindacco factory and Rosie wants CJ to come with him to 
meet Johnny.  CJ is reluctant since he knows Johnny will remember him.  
Sure enough, Johnny sees CJ, suffers a heart attack, and dies.  The 
Sindaccos attack CJ and Rosie but CJ kills all of the members in the 
factory and they escape and drive back to the casino to drop of Rosie.  

When CJ returns to the Four Dragons Casino he finalizes the ownership 
agreement with Woozie and Ran Fa Li and gets a call from Rosie who 
informs him that Salvatore Leone has come and taken it over.  CJ goes 
over to meet up with Rosie and when he arrives he meets Salvatore who 
is getting friendly with a waitress named Maria (yes, that Maria).  In 
order to butter Salvatore up, CJ informs him that in Liberty City, CJ 
worked with Salvatore's son Joey.  Salvatore likes that and wants CJ to 
kill some Forelli assassins flying in from Liberty City.  So he heads 
to the airport and takes a plane north to meet the assassins.  He finds 
the Forelli plane and flies over it.  CJ jumps from one plane to the 
other and kills all the Forelliís inside.  He gains control of the 
plane and brings it to a landing at the airport.  Upon leaving it, CJ 
hears about some commotion by the Royal Casino.  He heads over to find 
Madd Dogg, the rapper CJ stole everything from, drunk and ready to jump 
off the top of the building.  CJ grabs a truck with a bed full of empty 
boxes and catches Madd Dogg on his way down.  He takes Madd Dogg to a 
rehab centre and informs Madd Dogg of his name to which Madd Dogg 
states that he wants to meet up with CJ when he gets out.

After receiving a call from his long time friends, Tenpenny and 
Pulaski, CJ is informed that they're in Las Venturas and wish to talk 
with him.  CJ shows up at a house and Tenpenny wants CJ to get him a 
dossier (evidence package relating to Tenpenny's activities).  CJ heads 
to Aldea Malvada in the desert and attacks a group of FBI agents 
located there.  He kills them and steals the dossier from the courier's 
body.  CJ gets a call from Tenpenny to meet him out in the desert in a 
ghost town to give him the dossier.  CJ drives over and feels uneasy 
about the remote location Tenpenny has chosen.  He arrives and hands 
the files to Tenpenny who proceeds to hit Hernandez with a shovel in 
the head.  Tenpenny then yells claims of Hernandez snitching on his 
operation.  Tenpenny leaves Pulaski to watch over as CJ digs a grave 
for two since it appears that CJ is of no more use.  Just as he 
finishes Hernandez gets up and attacks Pulaski.  CJ escapes but 
Hernandez is shot to death and Pulaski makes a run for it. CJ follows 
Pulaski as he yells out insults about CJ's family to piss him off.  CJ 
ignores them, catches up with him, and finally finishes Pulaski off.  
Tenpenny is left on his own now since Pulaski and Hernandez are dead 
but that doesn't matter thanks to CJ eliminating most of the evidence 
against Tenpenny.

CJ receives a call from Ken to return to Caligula's Casino so he does 
and finds Salvatore who wants him to perform a hit in Liberty City.  CJ 
recruits Paulie, Maccer, and Rosie for the job knowing that Salvatore 
wants them eliminated.  When they leave the casino he tells them to get 
out of Las Venturas and he'll meet up with them later.  CJ heads for 
the airport and flies to Liberty City arriving after a few hours.  He 
heads to St. Mark's Bistro in Portland and kills the men in the 
restaurant and the parking lot out back and flies back to Las Venturas.  
When he arrives he gets a surprise call from Sweet who's very depressed 
and has almost given up on ever getting out.  CJ tells him to hold on 
but Sweet isn't listening.  He receives another call from Salvatore who 
informs CJ that they need to stay away from each other for awhile.  
Lastly, CJ receives a call from Woozie asking him if the heist is still 
on which CJ answers and says that they're clear to go.  CJ returns to 
Four Dragons to set the plan in motion.  He drives to Caligula's Casino 
in a croupier outfit and heads downstairs to the loading bays.  Raising 
the door, he lets the Triads with the trucks and bikes to come in.  
They fight off mafia men and grab the cash despite a few setback.  
Heading out of the building they avoid the cops and successfully get 
away with the cash.  Following the success, CJ gets a call from 
Salvatore who promises to find him and kill him for his betrayal.

After the heist, CJ returns to the Four Dragons Casino to count up his 
cash and he meets Madd Dogg who has come looking for CJ.  He, 
apparently, wants his house back but he sold it to a dealer when he ran 
low on cash.  CJ takes some of Woozie's men and agree to get the house 
back for Madd Dogg (least he can do after ruining his life).  CJ and 
the men get into a plane and fly over the mansion and parachute out, 
landing on the roof.  They're confronted by Vagos members and a 
shootout begins.  Killing the Vagos, more men come down and they 
proceed inside.  CJ finds the drug dealer Big Poppa, who Madd Dogg sold 
the house to and chases after him.  Big Poppa runs out of the mansion 
into a car and speeds off.  CJ grabs anotehr car and catches up to Big 
Poppa to kill him.  CJ is successful and has reclaimed Madd Dogg's 
house.  After settling into the house, Toreno shows up and needs CJ's 
help.  He wants CJ to get onto the aircraft carrier in San Fierro bay 
and steal a jet.  CJ thinks this idea is suicide but Toreno assures him 
that it'll be fine.  CJ agrees to the job and Toreno drives him over to 
San Fierro.  CJ swims out to the ship entering it, disabling the SAMs 
(Surface to Air Missiles) and steals a jet.  He's now instructed with 
destroying some spy ships but he needs to avoid the other jets on his 
tail as well.  CJ is successful and wants to know where Toreno wants 
the jet but Toreno ignores the question and pretends he doesn't know 
anything about a jet.  CJ gets pissed off but decides to store it at 
Verdant Meadows for future use.  

CJ gets back to Madd Dogg's house to meet up with everyone.  Toreno 
shows up again and CJ pulls a gun on him.  Toreno says he has one last 
task and then he's free.  Toreno tells CJ to pick up the phone and 
right after that it rings.  Sweet is on the other line and is 
apparently being freed and doesn't know why.  Toreno says that he only 
wants CJ to go pick up his brother so he goes to the police station and 
picks up Sweet.  CJ proudly tells Sweet about all his new businesses 
but Sweet is upset he's left the hood to rot.  They drive over to Grove 
Street and CJ shows Sweet how bad the hood has become.  Drug dealers 
all around with people breaking into the houses and stealing anything 
they find.  CJ is ordered to clean the neighbourhood up so he kills the 
drug dealers and then reclaims the territory from the Ballas.  CJ now 
starts gathering more territory again and providing the Grove Street 
Families with a nice section of the city to work with.

He returns to Madd Dogg's mansion and finds Madd Dogg watching OG Loc 
on a music video.  He realizes that OG Loc's rhymes are his that were 
stolen with his rhyme book(CJ was the one who stole it).  CJ and Madd 
Dogg agree to go break up OG's party and get the book back.  When they 
arrive, OG Loc takes off and they chase after him in hovercrafts and 
minicarts.  OG gets to his recording studio and Madd Dogg takes his 
rhymes book back.  OG Loc is fired by the studio manager.  CJ agrees to 
meet up with Madd Dogg later and drives back to Grove Street.  He walks 
in on Sweet about to be given some drugs by a whore but CJ stops her 
and Sweet states that he just wanted to know what everyone's going 
crazy for.  The whore says that B Dup won't like this and CJ says he'll 
take care of B Dup right now.  He drives over to B Dup's apartment but 
finds he's moved to Glen Park, Ballas territory.  CJ heads there and 
kills the Ballas in the neighbourhood.  He and Sweet confront B Dup who 
attempts to get Big Bear to take care of them.  Big Bear denounces B 
Dup and joins the Grove Street again.  Sweet takes Big Bear to rehab 
while CJ returns to Grove Street.

Meeting on Grove Street, Sweet insults CJ for forgetting where he came 
from and they head to Idlewood to claim more territory which they're 
successful in doing.  A few days later, everyone meets at Madd Dogg's 
mansion for Tenpenny's trial.  Apparently, he's been caught and is 
facing charges.  They listen into the court proceedings and then it's 
announced that all charges are being dropped do to a lack of evidence 
(thanks to CJ's work).  Unfortunately, it appears that Tenpenny has 
upset a lot of people because the entire city begins to riot.  CJ and 
Sweet head to Grove Street and secure their hood.  Cesar arrives later 
and needs CJ's help to get back the Varrios Los Aztecas' territory.  CJ 
rejects the invitation, at first, saying that he needs to help his 
brother.  Sweet instead, tells CJ to go help Cesar and pay back his 
debts.  CJ grabs some Grove Street members and goes to Unity Station 
with them and Cesar.  They meet with Cesar's friends and storm the 
apartment complexes nearby.  Heading through the walkways they kill all 
the Vagos they find.  They eventually make it to Cesar's old street and 
kill the Vagos there as well.  Cesar thanks CJ and secures the area 
while CJ heads out.

Sweet calls CJ and tells him they've found where Big Smoke is hiding.  
CJ drives to Sweet's house to pick him up and they head over to East 
Los Santos to an apartment complex.  CJ says he needs do this alone for 
Sweet, Brian, and the whole family and Sweet agrees and wishes him 
luck.  CJ grabs a SWAT tank from a shootout and rams the front of the 
building for access.  Heading up the stairs, CJ proceeds through a drug 
factory, a lounge, a security area, and arrives at Big Smoke's room on 
the 4th floor.  Big Smoke is playing video games and when confronted by 
CJ he says that he wants to be remembered and that's why he did it.  
Big Smoke admits that he's glad it was CJ that got to him.  Big Smoke 
then pulls a gun on CJ and they exchange fire.  CJ manages to kill Big 
Smoke and then sits on the couch feeling remorse for what he's done.  
Tenpenny comes up behind him with a shotgun and gets CJ to load a 
briefcase with money.  Tenpenny says that he merely used Big Smoke and 
now has some new young officers with him that he needs to turn to his 
side (easy Darth Vader).  CJ tricks Tenpenny and ducks behind a couch.  
Tenpenny runs off and destroys some of the equipment downstairs to set 
the building on fire.  CJ quickly escapes the building and finds 
Tenpenny drive off in a fire truck which Sweet jumps on the back of.  
CJ follows close behind and catches Sweet when he falls off.  They 
switch seats and CJ fights off the police as they chase Tenpenny and 
the city tears itself apart.  Tenpenny eventually drives the truck off 
a bridge and lands on Grove Street.  Tenpenny crawls out dying from his 
injuries and insults CJ.  CJ is about to shoot Tenpenny but he's 
stopped since Tenpenny will die from the accident and CJ won't be 
chased down for murdering a cop.  The Truth informs CJ that he beat the 
system and they all head inside.  CJ looks at Tenpenny one last time 
and says, "See you around............ officer".  

CJ and the others go to his mom's house and celebrate.  Madd Dogg walks 
in and announces he has received his first gold record much to 
everyone's delight.  CJ heads out of the house to go check out the 
neighbourhood and relish in his hard work.

It can be assumed that the police were able to take control of the riot 
situation and return the city to normal (the same as the riots in Los 
Angeles in the early 90's).

E8. 1998

The events of GTA Liberty City Stories

After 4 long years, Toni Cipriani has returned to Liberty City.  He 
killed a made man but he's back to reclaim his place in the Leone 
Family.  Arriving in Portland on a bus and he gets off.  Toni makes a 
quick call and gets in a taxi that takes him to Salvatore Leone's 
mansion and he finds Salvatore with Vincenzo or 'Luck' as Salvatore 
calls him.  It appears that Vincenzo is second in command now as he's 
moved up the ladder since Toni's absence.  Salvatore wants Toni to work 
for Vincenzo but Toni doesn't like the idea since he's being put under 
Vincenzo after all he did for the family.  Salvatore asks Toni if he 
questions his authority and Toni retracts his comments.  Vincenzo and 
Toni head out to show Toni his new place that Vincenzo got him and when 
they arrive Vincenzo says that he wants Toni to drive him to his place 
in Atlantic Quays.  Toni does so and Vincenzo tells him to come by 

Toni returns to Vincenzo's place the next day but still doesn't give 
Vincenzo any respect since he's young and cocky and Toni believes he 
should be giving Vincenzo orders.  Vincenzo tells him to go find out 
what's wrong with one of his dealers since he's bringing nothing in.  
Toni meets the dealer and he says that he's sick and will work tomorrow 
but Toni insists that he works now and takes the dealer to Chinatown.  
The dealer says that the Sindacco Family is dealing on Leone turf but 
Toni doesn't believe him.  He drops the dealer off and heads back to 
Vincenzo's.  When he arrives he's informed that the dealer Toni dropped 
off has been killed by the Sindacco's he warned Toni about.  Toni 
drives around Portland and takes out the Sindacco dealers for this 
which ends their operations.

Toni returns to Vincenzo's place and is ordered to kill a Sindacco 
leader and take his car.  Toni heads over to the construction site in 
Hepburn Heights and kills all the Sindacco's there.  He grabs the 
leaderís car and resprays it but during that time a man named JD calls 
Toni and says to keep the car as a down payment for the money he owes 
Toni.  Toni doesn't mind keeping the car since it's a Hellenbacht GT (a 
fast car in the GTA world).  Toni goes back to Vincenzo's and finds him 
irate.  Apparently, some of his men were robbing a gas station and got 
pinned down by the police and he demands that Toni go over and grab 
them.  Toni drives to the gas station, breaks through the police 
barricades, and grabs the three men escaping with them and losing the 
police.  Toni takes them back to Vincenzo's.  When Toni arrives 
Vincenzo wants him to grab another car for him.  It contains drugs in 
it and he wants Toni to get it first before the cops know about it.  
Toni goes to the docks area and gets in the car.  As soon as he does 
the cops converge on him and Toni realizes that Vincenzo set him up.  
Toni drives off and gets the car resprayed to avoid cop attention.  He 
calls up Vincenzo and yells at him but Vincenzo doesn't really care and 
Toni decides to quit working for Vincenzo.  Toni takes Vincenzo's car 
to the crushers as punishment for the betrayal.  Toni's now going to do 
his own thing for the Leone Family and he heads to Paulie's Revue Bar 
to talk with JD O'Toole.

Toni knocks on the back door and JD walks out in a gimp suit with holes 
for the nipples and butt cheeks (that is the scariest thing in the GTA 
universe).  Toni demands his money but JD doesn't have it.  He offers 
to go with Toni to all his girls and pick it up from them though.  JD 
changes and they drive to all of JD's girls and grab the cash.  Toni 
drives JD back to his apartment.  A few days later, Toni returns to the 
bar and finds a panicking JD.  The cops are coming to raid the place 
and Salvatore is inside.  Toni grabs a car and takes Salvatore away 
from the bar before the cops show up.  Salvatore wants Toni to drive 
him home and after he does, Salvatore asks Toni to come by later.  Toni 
first heads back to Paulie's Revue Bar and JD informs him that the 
Sindacco's are looking to destroy the Leone casino in Portland.  Toni 
goes there and fights off waves of Sindacco men in order to protect the 

Toni goes back to Paulie's Revue Bar and JD now suggests that he pays 
the Sindacco's back for what they tried to do.  Toni takes a car to 8-
Ball's and gets it rigged.  He brings it over to the Sindacco casino 
and destroys the casino in a huge fireball.  Afterwards, Toni receives 
a call from his mother.  She demands to see him so Toni heads to her 
cafe.  Ma Cipriani begins to insult Toni and ask him why he isn't like 
Giovanni Casa and why he never called her.  Toni suggests that Casa is 
a pervert but she denies it so Toni decides to tail Casa and take 
pictures of him in his perverted activities.  Toni parks in Chinatown 
and follows Casa as he picks up 2 hookers and goes to Callahan Point.  
The hookers get out of the car and Casa changes into a big baby 
costume.  Toni takes a picture as the hookers and Casa run off.  He 
delivers the pictures to his mom for her to see.  Before she looks at 
them she wishes Toni wasn't so afraid of the Triads.  He denies this 
but decides to prove himself and heads to Chinatown and kills two 
groups of Triad men.  When Toni returns his mom is complaining about a 
guy named Sucho and she wants Toni to beat him in a race and then kill 
him.  So Toni heads to the start of the race and gets in position.  He 
wins the race and then chases Sucho down and kills him.  He'll do 
anything to make his mom happy.  Toni returns to tell his mom the good 
news and she begins to yell at him and call him a pervert for taking 
the pictures of Casa.  Toni is furious and decides that Casa needs to 
go so he goes to Casa's deli and picks him up.  Casa questions where 
they're going but Toni says nothing and drives them to the Sawmill in 
Atlantic Quays.  Toni tells Casa that it's over and grabs an axe.  He 
chases Casa around, kills him, and chops Casa's body up.  He then 
returns to Casa's deli and sells the meat to the clerk there who 
worries about Casa finding out (I doubt it since the meat is Casa).

Toni's now free of the shadow of Casa and returns to the restaurant to 
find his mom upset.  She whispers something on the phone about Toni 
being there and then announces that she's called a hit on him.  Ma runs 
out of the restaurant and leaves in a car as the hitmen show up.  Toni 
takes care of them all (at this point the hitmen will randomly attack 
the player in the game).  Toni decides to visit Salvatore's after this 
incident.  He finds Salvatore who wants Toni to take some money to Jane 
Hopper, the head of the union that's striking down at the port.  Toni 
proceeds down and finds Ms. Hopper who informs him that she can't be 
bought and he's then surrounded by union workers.  Toni manages to 
escape this gang beating and leaves the docks to return to Salvatore's 
place and inform him of the situation.  Salvatore suggests that Toni 
picks up some whores from around town and supply them to the union 
workers to get them on the Leone side.  Toni brings 6 of them over and 
announces who's supplying the girls to help the workers change their 

Toni has influenced them but the Leone's can't get their shipments yet.  
Toni returns to Salvatore's house and is ordered to go and beat up the 
union leaders to help them change their minds (the leaders below Ms. 
Hopper).  So Toni heads around town and finds the leader.  He beats the 
crap out of all three of them and they promptly change their opinion.  
When Toni returns, Salvatore has a plan to end this problem.  Toni is 
ordered to head to the radio station building and beat up Ms. Hopper's 
limo driver.  Then he'll take Ms. Hopper on a ride to change her mind.  
Toni manages to pull this off and Ms. Hopper agrees to Salvatore's 

During the meetings with Salvatore, Toni has met up with Salvatore's 
wife, Maria.  Maria wanted Toni to meet her at her apartment but Toni 
had been busy with activities for Salvatore.  Now that Toni's time is 
freed up he goes there and finds Maria wanting to go shopping.  Toni 
agrees to take her only because she's Salvatore's girl and they head 
out but Maria steals from the stores she goes into and Toni is forced 
to lose the police and drives her home.  When he returns to her 
apartment she needs him to drive her to get some drugs.  They reach the 
dealers in Chinatown she's kidnapped by them so Toni follows them and 
rams their car several times until they get out and Toni is able to 
kill them.  Maria is thankful for Toni's help but Toni is growing 
annoyed with her but he's told to drive her home.  It isn't long before 
Maria needs Toni again so he returns to her apartment and finds a 
letter from Maria stating that she's put herself up as a prize in a 
bike race.  Toni realizes that Salvatore will be pissed if he finds out 
so he grabs a bike and heads for the race.  Toni manages to win the 
race and save Maria but she ends up running off with a biker.

Toni has grown tired of covering things up for Maria but she needs him 
once again and he heads to her apartment for Salvatore's sake.  When he 
arrives he finds Maria bloody and bruised and demands to know who did 
it.  Maria says it was Wayne, the biker she ran off with at the end of 
the race and Toni storms out of the apartment.  As he leaves we get the 
famous line in all the ads, "I love you Toni Cipriani!Ē  Toni heads 
into Chinatown and finds Wayne with his biker friends and Wayne states 
that Maria is a slut and deserved to beating.  Toni goes for Wayne but 
he rides off on his bike and Toni follows and kills him.  He heads back 
to Maria's to tell her the news and finds her high as a kite.  She's 
overdosed on drugs and needs a counter drug called ZAP to balance it 
out.  Toni asks her where she left this ZAP but she can't remember and 
they head to various locations to find it but each time she says it's 
somewhere else.  She finally remembers that it's at Salvatore's place 
and they head there and he drops Maria off.

As Maria gets fixed up with her ZAP, Toni meets with Salvatore.  
Salvatore wants Toni to pick up some "stuff" at the docks for him so 
Toni grabs some men and heads over to meet with Miguel and some 
Columbian Cartel members.  As the deal is taking place the cops arrive 
and Toni yells at the Columbians for bringing them.  A shootout happens 
between the three sides and Toni manages to get in the Patriot with the 
"stuff" and drives off.  He loses the cops and drops it off and a 
predetermined location.  Toni receives a call from JD who tells him to 
hurry over to Paulie's Revue Bar.  So Toni heads there and finds JD in 
a panic.  He mumbles something about the FBI and cops until Toni gets 
it out of him.  The Sindaccos have kidnapped Salvatore.  Just then, JD 
spots one of the men and Toni follows him into Chinatown.  Salvatore is 
in the trunk and they're going to take the car to the crushers.  Toni 
kills the men there and follows the car as it drives off.  He stops 
them from reaching the crusher and takes Salvatore home but Salvatore 
isn't in a good mood.  Toni returns to JD's to inform him that 
everything is fine but JD has found out that Salvatore is coming down 
and he's going to take this part of town as payback.  He orders Toni to 
go to the roof and protect Salvatore when he arrives.  Toni heads up 
there and begins to pick off the Sindacco's with a sniper rifle and 
watches as Salvatore storms Paulie's Revue Bar and kills the Sindacco's 
inside.  The place is now under Leone control and it has an "Under New 
Management" sign up (it will become Sex Club 7 owned by Luigi by the 
time GTA3 happens).  

Toni meets up with JD who's extremely happy about being able to manage 
the place on his own now but he informs Toni that Salvatore is meeting 
with a man named Massimo and he isn't sure about Massimo's loyalty and 
asks Toni to follow him after the meeting.  Toni follows him in a 
helicopter and it lands in Hepburn Heights.  Massimo meets with some 
Diablos and offers them Hepburn Heights if they continue their attacks 
on the Leone Family turf.  The helicopter takes off again and Toni 
follows.  Massimo meets on a roof with some Triads in Chinatown but 
Toni can't hear what they're discussing.  A Triad spots Toni and 
Massimo takes off while Toni kills the Triads.  Toni leaves the area 
and gets news from JD to get dressed up and pick him up.  Toni arrives 
at JD's place and finds JD in a suit and high spirits.  It's time for 
JD to be 'made' in the Leone Family.  They head out to the road and 
find Mickey there with a car waiting.  Toni gets in the driver seat and 
takes them over to the area near the crusher but the Sindacco's start 
following.  Toni manages to kill them and they arrive.  Mickey proceeds 
to shoot JD in the back of the head because they would never trust JD 
after he turned on his Sindacco leaders.  The car is now leaking blood 
so Toni drives it through town, drops Mickey off, and dumps the car in 
the water.

Suddenly, Toni gets a call from Vincenzo who apologizes for how he's 
acted and he wants Toni to meet him at his place.  Toni goes over to 
Atlantic Quays and doesn't find Vincenzo there so he calls Vincenzo who 
says that a shipment came in and he needs Toni's help.  Toni goes to 
the boat and down into the cargo area but someone closes the door and 
Toni is trapped.  Several men with hockey masks and chainsaws chase 
after Toni and try to kill him but Toni survives.  Vincenzo appears 
with a gun and Toni has had enough so he kills him.  Just as Toni 
celebrates the death of Vincenzo he gets a call from Salvatore that 
there's a big problem so he drives to Salvatore's place.  When he 
arrives, Salvatore informs him that the Diablos have attacked them in 
Hepburn Heights and he needs Toni down there.  Toni travels to Hepburn 
Heights and finds the Leone's outnumbered.  Toni manages to turn the 
tide of the fight and the Leone's eliminate the Diablos.  Salvatore 
calls and asks what happened and Toni informs him that they won but 
lost a lot of men and he doesn't think they'll be able to hold off the 
Diablos from taking over that part of town (by GTA3 the Diablos control 
Hepburn Heights).  Salvatore denies Toni's comments and says that he 
doesn't lose any turf.

Toni heads back to Salvatore's place and he's told to pick up some cash 
from a warehouse in Atlantic Quays.  Toni drives there and he's allowed 
in the gates.  Just as he enters some Triads set a bomb and destroy the 
building.  The remaining Triads and Leoneís fight as Toni collects the 
cash, kills the Triads and leaves the building area (this building is 
the Triad Fish Factory in GTA3).  Toni heads back to Salvatore's place 
and drops off the cash but Salvatore needs him right away.  Salvatore 
needs to speak with the mayor who's on Staunton Island, however, the 
bridge isn't finished and the ferries aren't running.  Salvatore still 
needs to get there and wants Toni to head for the ferries.  So they get 
in a car and head there but finds the cops all over the place.  They 
quickly turn around and head for the bridge which Toni drives on and 
floors it while the cops follow.  They leap the bridge and just make it 
across, much to Salvatore's delight and appreciation.  They head to a 
safehouse to lay low for a short time.

It isn't long, however, before Salvatore takes action and wants Toni to 
kill Mayor R.C. Hole who's getting on Salvatore's nerves.  Toni goes to 
the park where the mayor is jogging and kills him.  The security and 
police support is caught off guard and Toni easily escapes after 
grabbing the mayor's phone, which he delivers to Salvatore.  When Toni 
arrives back at his apartment he finds Mickey waiting.  Mickey and Toni 
are going to take a ride.  Toni is nervous (since Mickey only appeared 
this way to "make" JD) but tries to act cool as they drive to an alley 
and meet Salvatore who says that Toni is being 'made' today.  They 
enter a building and Toni exits a while later with his Ma calling him 
several hours afterwards and congratulating Toni.  She's even called 
off the hit on him.

Toni's relieved about the situation but knows that more work needs to 
be done and he meets up with Salvatore.  He wants Toni to kidnap the 
mayor's assistant and find out who the mayor was working for.  They 
grab the assistant after work and put him on a boat but the police 
notice and chase after them.  Toni grabs a gun and destroys the boats 
and a helicopter following.  Toni gets off and Salvatore tells him to 
meet up with a businessman that could be a candidate for the mayor's 
role.  Toni agrees to meet him.

This businessman is Donald Love.  He's a strange man and when Toni 
arrives he requests that Toni get a hearse for him.  Toni goes out and 
finds the hearse Donald specified and brings it back.  Donald then asks 
Toni to steer the votes by campaigning and destroying rival van around 
the neighbourhood.  Toni is successful but is again asked to help 
Donald out.  He needs to kill some groups that are trying to campaign 
for the rival competitor, O'Donovan.  Toni kills them and returns to 
Donald's place.  Apparently, Donald has found that the Forelliís are 
backing O'Donovan and have a warehouse to produce the ballots and 
machines to rig the election.  Toni goes to the warehouse by the 
hospital and destroys all the ballots and machines to end this rigging.  
When he returns to Donald's place he's told to protect Donald as he 
heads for a meeting.  The Forelliís attack but Toni kills them and they 
arrive safely.  A few days later, Toni meets Donald who wants Toni to 
steal the votes from a van making its rounds.  Toni catches up with the 
van and replaces the votes with ones for Donald Love.  Toni and Love 
agree to stay apart for awhile to ensure that no connection is made.

During this time, Toni received a call to come to the church.  Finding 
this odd he still goes there and finds the priest wants him to do some 
tasks for him.  He first wants Toni to steal an FBI car and get some 
reports from an informant who wants to meet the FBI.  Toni gets the 
car, steals the notes and brings them back for the priest.  Toni is 
then instructed to steal back some diamonds from a group of thieves.  
Toni manages to kill them and reacquires the diamonds which he brings 
back to the church.  As Toni enters he's next asked to cause as much 
chaos and destruction as possible to show the sinners their evil ways.  
So Toni grabs a fire truck and goes on a rampage of destruction and 
killing.  When Toni returns later on he's instructed to kill three 
celebrities who the priest claims are "false idols".  Toni goes out and 
kills them as they all head for a radio station they were meeting at.  
Toni heads back to the church to tell the priest and the priest runs 
off in a frenzy thanking Toni for all his work.  It seems he wasn't a 
priest after all.

Toni could care less about this turn of events as he's called by 
Salvatore who needs his services again.  Toni gets to a payphone 
specified by Salvatore who calls saying that the Forelliís and 
Sindacco's were having a meeting and Salvatore went to spy on it but 
they saw him and now he's pinned down.  Toni drives over to Salvatore's 
location, heads down an alley, and kills all the men there.  He finds 
Salvatore and they leave in a limo and arrive back at the safehouse.  
The next day, Salvatore calls Toni and tells him to get to the phone at 
the Liberty Campus.  Toni shows up and Salvatore says he has a surprise 
for him.  Apparently, Salvatore rigged Paulie Sindacco's car.  
Salvatore wants Toni to use the remote controls and kill every Sindacco 
and Forelli at a meeting with the car and Paulie in it.  Toni gets in a 
black van and takes control of the car.  He runs down all the men while 
Paulie is helpless inside.  Everyone has been killed and Paulie is the 
one to blame.

Toni heads back to see Salvatore and is instructed to kill Franco 
Forelli who knows what the Leone's did to Paulie's car.  Toni heads to 
the docks and gets in a boat chasing after Franco.  They go back onto 
land and eventually Toni catches and kills him.  Toni immediately gets 
a call from Salvatore to meet one of their insiders in the police 
department who's over in Riverside.  Toni goes down by the water and 
meets Leon McAffrey and he wants Toni to join him as they go take out 
several Sindacco's.  They drive in Leon's car and kill all the 
Sindacco's on the street they can find.  But the Sindacco's decide to 
chase them on bikes, in cars and a helicopter and Toni is successful in 
killing them.  Leon drops him off at his safehouse.

A short time later Toni heads back to Riverside and meets Leon again.  
Apparently, the Yardies want the Forelli territory in Newport so Leon 
wants to help them to pay off a debt.  Toni goes over to a Forelli 
hangout and steals a bike and gets the Forelliís to chase him on 
numerous bikes.  Toni leads them over to the north side of the hospital 
and the Forelliís are ambushed by the Yardies.  Toni returns to Leon 
and is introduced to Leon's new partner, Ray Machowski (who's a good 
cop now but a bent cop in GTA3).  Leon wants Toni to take a Katana and 
kill at least 20 Forelliís which Toni is only happy to do.  He's 
successful and now the Sindacco and Forelli numbers are decreasing 
substantially and the Leoneís are gaining more territory thanks to 
this.  When Toni returns to Leon he wants Toni to help the Yardies keep 
their territory in Newport since there's a big gang war going on.  Toni 
rushes over and help to kill the Sindacco's.  The Yardie leader says 
that one of his boys has been shot and he wants Toni to wait with him 
while they get an ambulance.  Toni stays with the man as more 
Sindacco's attack and Toni fights them off.  Toni manages to get the 
injured man out to the ambulance and the Yardies have won.

Toni proceeds to Leon's location and is now informed that the Forelliís 
have some armoured trucks and they need to be destroyed.  Toni is able 
to locate the vehicles and destroy them.  Toni receives a call from 
Donald Love so he goes to see him.  There, he finds Donald panicking as 
someone has evidence of the rigging and his connection to the Leoneís.  
Donald wants Toni to meet his man that has been following the 
transportation van.  Toni heads over to Newport and gets in the car 
with the man. He tells Toni to proceed along the docks as the van is 
located further along.  Toni goes in, kills everyone there, and takes 
the van.  He proceeds back to Donald's place and stores it in a garage.  
When Toni meets Donald he also finds out that Donald has lost the 
election.  He has lost $20 million on the election as well and blames 
Toni.  Toni could care less and leaves Donald to his mess.

Salvatore calls Toni shortly afterwards because he's been arrested and 
put in jail.  Toni needs to come see him on Shoreside Vale so Toni goes 
over dressed like a lawyer to not look suspicious.  He goes into a 
meeting room with Salvatore who calls him Lionel.  Salvatore believes 
that the Sindacco's and Forelliís have conspired against him and he 
wants revenge.  Toni leaves and gets some Hoods to help him.  He kills 
a number of Forelliís around the island as payback and heads back to 
see Salvatore the next day.  Salvatore now wants Paulie Sindacco dead 
and Toni heads down to the dam where Paulie is located.  Paulie 
recognizes Toni and takes off in a boat but Toni rockets it and kills 
Paulie.  When Toni returns to see Salvatore he informs Toni that the 
Yakuza are heavily armed and looking to take over some Leone turf.  
Toni heads back to Staunton and enters the Yakuza complex where he 
finds a lot of heavy artillery and a tank.  Toni steals the tank and 
kills all the Yakuza members.  Toni then destroys the tank by sending 
it into the water.

Toni receives a call from Toshiko Kasen, the wife of the Yakuza leader, 
Kazuki Kasen.  She wants Toni's help so Toni decides to head to her 
apartment in order to work the Yakuza from the inside.  When he 
arrives, he meets Toshiko who explains how she hates her husband for 
caring more about the gang than her.  She wants Toni to steal more of 
the Yakuza's supplies that are coming in.  He goes to the docks, kills 
the Yakuza there, and then steals a boat of supplies.  The Yakuza give 
chase but he leaves them behind and arrives at the ferry station on 
Staunton to sell the weapons to Phil Cassidy who admires the ferry 
location (by GTA3 this location is Phil's property and he supplies 
weapons from it).  Toni returns to Toshiko's apartment where she tells 
Toni she wants him to destroy Kasuki's cash vans leaving the casino.  
She wants to see the cash burn in the streets.  Toni suggests that he 
can take the cash (I'd like some) but she insists it be done her way.  
So Toni goes over to the casino and destroys the vans and burns all the 

Toni returns to Toshiko's later on and she now wants her husband to 
know who's doing this.  She wants Toni to take her to the opera so he 
leaves and gets her limo.  He picks Toshiko up, gets a tux, and drives 
to the opera.  The Yakuza spot Toshiko and Toni at the opera but don't 
attack.  The mafia (Sindacco's most likely) also see and don't agree 
with the racial mix and attack Toni who kills them.  They get back in 
the limo and drive off avoiding more attacks.  Toni returns Toshiko 
back to her apartment.  She contacts Toni shortly after and wants him 
to come back right away.  Upon arrival, she informs Toni that Kasuki 
has found out about them and they're heading over to the apartment 
soon.  Toni doesn't want to wait so he heads to the casino to kill them 
first.  He first attacks some Yakuza in Newport first and then heads to 
the casino where he kills the men and walks up to the roof to face off 
with Kasuki.  They fight with Katanas and Toni wins.  Toni takes 
Kasuki's Katana back to Toshiko as proof.  She's happy and sad at the 
same time and says that there's nothing more for her and jumps out the 
window to her death.

Toni is shocked by this but promptly receives a call from Donald who 
needs Toni's help.  Toni drives to a small apartment on Shoreside Vale 
and finds Donald a mess.  He apologizes to Toni for blaming him and 
needs Toni's help to get back his cash.  Donald wants Toni to kill his 
former mentor, Avery Carrington, and steal his plans for a new company 
called Panlantic Corporation.  Toni and Donald head to the airport and 
chase after Avery who's surrounded by Columbian Cartel cars.  Toni 
kills Avery, stealing the plans for Donald, and drives him back to his 
apartment.  He arrives there and finds Donald frantic because a 
reporter named, Ned Burner (who posed as the priest in the church) has 
pictures of Toni killing Avery.  Toni heads to the church and scares 
Ned into giving him the files and he takes Toni to his hideout to get 
them.  However, a flashbulb goes up and blinds Toni.  Ned takes off and 
Toni chases after him and manages to kill him.

Toni returns to give Donald the good news and Donald is ecstatic.  He 
wants Toni to go collect some guests for a party he'll have to 
celebrate (the guests are, of course, dead bodies).  Toni first grabs 
an ambulance with Avery in it and takes his body to an airport hanger 
with Avery's private jet.  Toni then goes back to the church and grabs 
a hearse with Ned Burner's body in it.  He brings it to the hanger as 
well.  Toni receives a call the next day from Donald asking him to go 
to 8-Ball's place.  Toni heads over and 8-Ball tells him that the 
explosives will cost $100,000 and he needs time but Toni still doesn't 
know what the job is for.

Toni returns a few days later and the bombs are ready.  Apparently, 
Toni needs to go underground and set the charges in Newport to destroy 
the Forelliís market area so the Panlantic Corp. can have some land to 
work with.  Toni drives over but is met by Forelliís that he loses and 
gets into Staunton.  Toni goes into the tunnels and sets the timers.  
He busts through some gates and manages to get out just as the entire 
market area and underground tunnels explode (that's why this area is 
under development in GTA3).  Toni returns to Donald who needs to leave 
Liberty City now.  The Columbians surround Donald's house but Toni 
kills them and drives Donald to the hanger with Avery's private jet and 
they say their good-byes.

Toni receives a call from Salvatore, he's getting out.  Apparently the 
Sicilian's have been causing the wars between the families and don't 
want Salvatore out of prison.  Toni heads to Shoreside Vale and escorts 
the convoy with Salvatore to the courthouse.  Several Sicilian cars 
come by but Toni takes care of them and makes it to the courthouse with 
Salvatore.  A few days later Toni gets a call from Salvatore.  He's out 
of prison and back home.  Toni returns to the house and finds out that 
the Sicilian's have kidnapped the mayor.  Salvatore and Toni set out to 
rescue him.  They head to City Hall and kill the Sicilian's there and 
Salvatore finds out that they have the mayor at the pier.  They drive 
over and kill the men there.  Toni and Salvatore get in a boat and head 
for an island where the mayor is being held.  Toni fights off the boats 
that follow while Salvatore drives and they arrive on the island.  They 
head up to the top of the lighthouse and find Massimo has planned it 
all.  Salvatore curses him as he gets in a helicopter.  Salvatore 
chases after the mayor while Toni shoots the helicopter down, killing 
Massimo.  Salvatore returns with the mayor and they head back to 
Salvatore's house.

When they arrive Salvatore tells Mayor O'Donovan that since they 
rescued his life he now owes the Leone's and they now own him.  He's 
forced to agree and is promptly taken back to City Hall.  Toni and 
Salvatore celebrate their success.  Salvatore then meets a cousin from 
Sicily out front.  He tells Salvatore that he never wanted to hurt them 
and hopes there can be peace now.  Salvatore agrees.  As the man leaves 
Salvatore states that he never trusted a piece of garbage like the man.  
The elderly man says under his breath, "Every dog has his day..." (this 
proves true when Salvatore is killed in 2001 by Claude for betraying

E10. 2001

The events of GTA 3

In early 2001, Catalina and Claude pull off a heist on the Liberty City 
Bank.  They run out of the building as Claude shoots a security camera 
to prevent identification.  Catalina turns the corner and a shot is 
heard.  As Claude turns the corner he finds one of the men shot down by 
Catalina and she shoots Claude and leaves him for dead taking off with 
another man (Miguel).  Claude is found, charged with the robbery, and 
he's sentenced.  However, while the transport van is taking them over 
the Callahan Bridge it's stopped.  Columbian Cartel members come out 
from trucks surrounding the van and take an elderly man with them.  
Claude and another man (8-Ball) attack the remaining guards and take 
off their handcuffs.  They look over at the centre of the bridge and 
see a bomb placed there.  They make a run for it as the bomb explodes 
and creates a huge hole in the Callahan Bridge separating Portland from 
the rest of the city.  Claude and 8-Ball grab a car and 8-Ball asks 
Claude to drive as his hands are all tapped up (from the events of GTA 
Advance).  Claude drives to a small place and they change their 
clothes.  Afterwards, 8-Ball directs Claude to a man he knows, Luigi, 
at the Sex Club 7 in the Red Light District.  Claude drives over and 8-
Ball goes in while Luigi comes out and talks with Claude.  He wants 
Claude to go pick up Misty from the clinic and if he does a good job 
then there might be more work for him.  Claude goes to the clinic, 
picks Misty up and drives her back to Luigi's.

As Claude thinks about the betrayal of Catalina and the revenge he 
wants on her, he knows that working his way through the criminal world 
will be the only way to find her.  Claude returns to Luigi's for more 
work and he's confronted by the security man, Mickey, and handed a 
letter.  The letter is from Luigi who wants Claude to go to the docks 
and kill a drug dealer who's been supplying SPANK to Luigi's girls.  
Claude heads over to the docks and kills the man, takes his car, has it 
resprayed and delivered to a garage.  He returns to Luigi's place and 
he's told by Luigi that the Don's son, Joey Leone, is looking for some 
action from his usual girl, Misty.  Claude is instructed to pick her up 
and take her to Joey's garage.  So he picks her up and drops her off at 
Joey's where he tells Claude to come back for some work.

Claude decides to continue his work for Luigi first and returns to the 
club to continue work there.  Luigi storms out upset about a Diablo guy 
that has been pimping his women around the club.  Luigi wants Claude to 
take care of him.  Claude finds the man driving around town and 
destroys the car which kills him.  He heads back to Luigi's and is 
informed that there's a policeman's ball by Callahan Bridge and he 
wants Claude to collect his girls and take them over to make some cash.  
So he drives around Portland and collects as many of Luigi's girls as 
he can and brings them to the ball.

Luigi has no need for Claude anymore so Claude heads off to Joey's and 
when he gets there he hears a public phone ringing and picks it up.  
The owner of the Bitchin' Dog Food Factory, Marty Chonks, needs Claude 
for some tasks.  He assigns Claude with bringing some people to his 
factory so he can kill them and Claude is left to destroy the car and 
the evidence. Marty asks Claude to bring his banker over because he's 
been ripping Marty off.  Next Claude brings some street thugs there 
since Marty hired them to break into his apartment but they want more 
money after the deal was done.  Then Marty needs some cash and Claude 
brings his wife over to kill her and get the insurance money.  Finally, 
it appears that Marty's wife had a lover and it's a man that Marty owes 
money to.  Claude brings him over but Marty is killed by the man.  
Claude steps out and kills the man (or you don't have to in the game) 
and then leaves the factory for good.

Claude goes over to Joey's garage and enters where Joey wants Claude to 
kill Lips Forelli since the Forelli's have owed Joey money for far too 
long.  Claude drives to Marco's Bistro, steals Lips' car, and takes it 
to 8-Ball who fits the car with a bomb.  Claude returns the vehicle to 
its parking spot and when Lips returns to his car, Claude activates the 
bomb and kills Lips Forelli.  Claude goes back to Joey and he's now 
instructed to kill a vendor in Chinatown that's pushing SPANK.  Claude 
heads over, fighting through numerous Triad members and kills the 
vendor, Chunky Lee Chong.

When Claude returns to Joey, he's informed of a payroll van around 
Chinatown.  It's impervious to bullets and Claude must use a car to ram 
it.  Claude grabs a truck and rams the van until the security guys 
inside leave and Claude takes it to Joey's lockup.  He goes back to 
Joey's garage and finds Joey with another man (not in a gay way).  Joey 
introduces him as Toni Cipriani and apparently Joey has been telling 
Toni a lot about him.  Claude is directed to take Toni to the 
Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Marks but as they leave Toni wants them to 
make a stop at Mr. Wong's Launderette in Chinatown because he needs to 
collect some overdue protection money.  Upon arrival Toni enters but 
he's ambushed by some Triads and jumps into the car as they speed off 
to the ristorante.  Toni says that he'll get the Triads for this as 
Claude drops him off.  Claude receives a page from a man named El Burro 
who wants to talk with him in Hepburn Heights.

Claude returns to Joey's place because Joey had said he needed a driver 
for a heist he's planning.  But when Claude returns Joey needs him to 
do something else.  Apparently some Forelli ran his mouth and was 
killed for it.  The body is in the trunk of a car at Callahan Point and 
Claude is told to take the car to the crushers to get rid of the 
evidence.  Once Claude finds the car and gets in it the Forelli's drive 
up to try and run him off the road.  Claude avoids them and manages to 
get the car to the crushers.  When he returns to Joey, he's told that 
he has some friends who are planning to hit the Bank of Liberty 
(different than the one Claude broke into at the beginning intro).  
They need a good driver and Joey recommended Claude.  Claude goes to 
the safehouse in St. Marks and grabs the men.  They arrive at the bank 
and steal the cash but someone trips the alarm.  Claude frantically 
avoids the cops and makes it back to the lockup.  Joey doesn't need 
Claude's services right now so Claude heads to Toni's restaurant after 
a day of rest.

Entering the restaurant, Claude finds Toni who informs him that the 
launderette (the one Toni visited with you) won't pay protection.  He 
wants Claude to destroy their laundry vans and kill anyone that gets in 
his way.  Claude is successful and returns to find a letter from Toni.  
The launderette has agreed to pay and Toni wants Claude to go pick up 
the cash but when he goes to Chinatown and grabs the money he's 
surrounded by Triads.  Claude kills them and returns the cash to Toni's 
place but finds another letter.  Apparently the Don has called a 
meeting and Claude needs to get the limo from Joey's place, grab Joey, 
pick up Luigi, and then return for Toni so they can head to the Don's 
place together.  Claude picks them all up but when he grabs Toni the 
car is ambushed by Triad vans.  Claude fights them off and gets to 
Salvatore's place and they all go up and greet the Don who wants a 
world with Claude.

Salvatore sees a good future for Claude and wants Claude to take the 
Don's woman, Maria, out for a good time.  Maria doesn't like the 
situation and refers to Claude as 'Fido'.  They get in the limo and she 
instructs him to head for the Chinatown train station where she needs 
to pick up some drugs.  Maria meets Chico there and he gives her the 
'usual' supply of drugs.  He also informs her of a party in Atlantic 
Quays and she agrees to check it out before getting back into the car.  
Claude drives Maria over to the warehouse and she tells him to wait in 
the car.  The party is broken up when the police arrive for a narcotics 
bust and everyone runs out.  A shootout begins and Maria jumps in the 
limo as Claude takes off to Salvatore's place.  Maria tells Claude how 
impressed she was with his professionalism and hopes to see him again.

When Claude returns to Toni's he finds another letter.  Toni writes 
that they're at war and the launderette hasn't paid protection.  He 
indicates that the Triads have a fish factory as a front.  He wants 
Claude to kill some of the Triad warlords.  Claude goes to Chinatown 
and finds a war zone between Triads and Leone men.  Claude kills the 
Triad warlords there and continues over to the fish factory in Atlantic 
Quays and kills the men there as well.  Claude heads back to Toni's 
place and finds another letter (does this guy ever show up?).  Toni 
instructs Claude to finish the Triads for good.  He advises Claude that 
8-Ball has rigged a dustcart and wants Claude to take it to the fish 
factory and destroy it (much like the Triads did in 1998).  Claude 
grabs the dustcart and then drives over to the fish factory and enters 
the gate.  He parks it near some tanks and runs like hell as the 
building explodes and Claude escapes.

Claude returns to Salvatore Leone's house and meets Salvatore who 
suspects one of the bartenders at Sex Club 7 is leaking information to 
the Columbians.  Claude must follow him to see if it's true and then 
kill him if it is.  Claude goes to the club and tails the bartender's 
cab.  Keeping his distance, they arrive at the docks and Curly Bob 
meets with Miguel and Catalina.  He informs them that the Leone's are 
in a war with the Triads and Joey has stirred up some bad blood with 
the Forelli's.  He gets his supply of SPANK for his services and they 
leave.  Claude drives over to Curly Bob and runs him down for the 
betrayal.  He drives back to Salvatore's house to give him the news and 
when Claude returns Salvatore suspects that the ship near where Curly 
Bob led Claude is the SPANK factory for the Columbians.  He wants 
Claude to destroy it and orders him to visit 8-Ball for some 
explosives.  Claude heads over and is asked to get $100,000 to cover 
the expenses which he provides to 8-Ball.  They arrive at the boat and 
Claude uses a sniper rifle to pick off the Cartel men on the ship.  8-
Ball heads in and sets the bomb, escaping just as it explodes and 
begins to sink.

Claude returns to Salvatore's and is praised for his work.  Salvatore 
just needs Claude to do one more small job before everything is done.  
He needs Claude to grab a car containing another body and take it to 
the crushers.  As Claude heads over to the vehicle he receives a page 
from Maria who informs him that the car is a trap and for him to come 
to Callahan Point.  Claude immediately proceeds over and finds a 
freaked out Maria with an Asian woman.  Maria tells Claude that 
Salvatore believes they're going behind his back because she said they 
were an item (smart one) and was offering Claude to the Columbian 
Cartel to make a deal.  Maria introduces Asuka to Claude and she wants 
them to head over to Staunton Island before the Leone's show up.  Once 
there they go to Asuka's apartment and she tells Claude that a 
safehouse has been setup for him and that he should come by later.

Claude visits the warehouse setup for him and hears that the Callahan 
Bridge has been repaired.  He returns to Asuka's and she wants Claude 
to prove he isn't working for the Leone's before they can do business.  
She wants Claude to kill Salvatore as he leaves Luigi's club.  As 
Claude leaves he hears Maria comment on Asuka's 'massager' (if you 
don't know what that really is then email me).  Claude hides on the 
rooftops and snipes Salvatore as he leaves.  The Leone members chase 
after Claude but he avoids them on his way out of Portland.  Claude 
also receives a page from King Courtney, the leader of the Yardies, who 
wants to meet Claude.

When Claude returns to Asuka's he finds her happy that Salvatore dead 
but apparently the Mafia has lookout posts on Staunton trying to find 
Claude.  This is causing problems with Yakuza operations and Asuka 
wants Claude to kill them and end the vendetta.  At the same time 
Claude is introduced to Asuka's brother, Kenji, who operates the Yakuza 
casino and he asks Claude to come by some time.  Claude drives around 
Staunton locating the lookout posts and ends the Leone Family threat by 
killing the men.  He proceeds over to the casino and finds Kenji who 
wants Claude to break a Yakuza member out of prison.  Claude finds a 
police car, rigs it with a bomb, and takes it to the police station 
where he places the car beside the jail wall and blows it up.  Claude 
grabs the Yakuza member and they escape the police station avoiding the 
police in pursuit and he drops the man off at a dojo.

Claude returns to the casino and Kenji states that to his shame he 
hasn't been able to repay a debt to a man.  The man enjoys cars and 
Kenji wants Claude to collect a few to complete the man's collection.  
Claude drives around town and picks up the 3 specified cars taking them 
to a garage.  The next day, Claude returns to the casino and Kenji is 
upset.  The Columbians are meeting with the Yardies to make a deal even 
after the Yakuza have told the Cartel to stay out of their business.  
Kenji wants Claude to meet a Yakuza man, steal a Yardie car, and go to 
the meeting.  Claude grabs the car and they show up to the meeting and 
when the Cartel get out of their cars, Claude and the Yakuza man blow 
them away.  Claude grabs a briefcase from the bodies and returns it to 
the casino.  When Claude enters he's instructed to go collect the 
protection money from various companies.  Claude drives to the shops 
and collects the money but when he get to one he finds that the place 
has been robbed.  The owner complains that the Yakuza are useless and 
Claude needs to go get the money from a gang that stole it.  He heads 
over to Hepburn Heights and finds some Diablos protecting the money.  
Claude kills them and returns all the cash to the casino.

Claude goes to meet with Kenji who immediately yells at him.  It 
appears that Claude's efforts to stop the Columbians and Yardies from 
becoming allies didn't work.  The Yardies are selling SPANK on the 
streets and Kenji wants Claude to kill them and erase the shame from 
himself.  Claude goes out and kills every Yardie dealer he can find on 
the street.  Claude returns to Asuka's place to help her with some 
affairs but finds a letter there for him (does no one want to talk to 
Claude?).  It informs him that Asuka and Maria have taken a vacation as 
some reporter is snooping around and he should still be out in the bay.  
Claude grabs a police boat and chases the reporter.  He shoots the boat 
with the guns on his and it explodes, killing the reporter.

A few days later Asuka returns and Claude joins her at her apartment.  
She wants Claude to deliver payment to the Yakuza's man in the LCPD.  
He's paranoid so Claude must get to the payphone in Torrington and 
await instructions.  When Claude arrives he's lead around to different 
payphones on Staunton Island until he's instructed to meet the man in 
the toilet block in Belleville Park.  Claude heads in and finds the man 
and hands the cash over.  He's Ray Machowski and he tells Claude to 
meet him back here for some work.  But Claude remains there and Ray 
tells him that another bent cop, McAffrey (the same guy from GTA LCS), 
has just squealed and Ray doesn't want to be implicated.  Claude is 
instructed to kill him in his hideout in Newport.  Claude heads over 
and burns the apartment and kills McAffrey as he attempts to leave.

Claude returns to the toilet block and Ray wants Claude to help out his 
friend, Phil Cassidy, with a Columbian Cartel problem.  So Claude heads 
north into Rockford and meets Phil in his base.  He says that the 
Columbians will be coming soon and when they arrive Claude and Phil 
take them out.  As a token of his appreciation, Phil offers Claude 
great prices on his hardware.  Phil also adds that if he had Claude in 
Nicaragua with him, he would still have his arm (or if you didn't blow 
it off with Boomshine in GTA: VC).  Claude returns to the toilet block 
to inform Ray.  Ray immediately gives Claude the task of collecting 
some evidence of his friend at a "morgue party or something" that could 
lead to arrests and prosecution.  Claude finds the truck driving around 
and rams it to get all the evidence.  Claude then burns it and receives 
a page from Donald Love to meet him.  Claude goes and visits him.

Claude enters the building and gets to Donald's penthouse.  It appears 
that Donald is back on his feet after the problems back in 1998.  He 
owns numerous radio stations and his company 'Love Media' is into 
almost everything.  Donald thanks Claude for taking care of the 
evidence and wants Claude to rescue his "oriental friend" who's being 
held by the Cartel in Aspatria.  Claude grabs a Cartel car and enters 
the complex.  He kills the Cartel men and rescues the man (who's the 
man the Cartel broke out of the prison van that Claude was being 
escorted in).  Claude drives the man back to the Love Media offices.

Claude returns to Love's penthouse and is told that "Nothing drives 
down real estate prices like a good old fashioned gang war..."  Donald 
wants Claude to kill Kenji and make it look like the Cartel did it to 
initiate this war.  He steals a Cartel Cruiser and drives to the 
parking structure in Newport.  He heads up to the top and kills Kenji 
in a drive-by shooting.  Claude returns to Donald's penthouse and he 
wants Claude to grab a boat and pick up some packages in the ocean that 
will be dropped by a plane.  Claude grabs a boat and drives it under 
the Callahan Bridge.  The plane flies in and drops the packages which 
Claude recovers and returns to Donald's place.  He hears over the radio 
that the Shoreside Lift Bridge has been repaired.  

Claude visits Ray back in the park after a page and Ray suspects his 
current/new partner is a rat.  He suggests that Claude go out, grab a 
police boat and kill the man who's fishing by the lighthouse.  Claude 
drives the boat out and is able to kill the man despite his use of 
explosives.  Claude returns to the park and Ray yells at him because 
Claude failed to kill the witness (probably McAffrey) that will 
implicate Ray.  He's being moved from the hospital and Ray wants him 
dead to shut him up.  Claude drives up to the ambulance and knocks the 
witness out.  He's in a full body cast and Claude has to run him over 
several times to break it and kill him.  Claude returns to Ray to 
inform him but he has no time.  He's a marked man and needs get to the 
airport to leave town.  Claude drives Ray over to Francis International 
Airport avoiding the CIA officers on the bridge.  Ray informs Claude of 
a lockup with some 'presents' before he gets into the airport.  Claude 
goes back to the lockup on Staunton and finds some weapons and Patriot.

Claude goes back to Asuka's apartment and finds a letter.  It informs 
Claude that one of the Yakuza's drivers, Tanner, is an undercover cop 
who's "more or less useless out of his car" (a nice rib on the Driver 
series for PlayStation).  Claude heads to the casino and kills the cop 
even when backup officers show up and complicate the matter.  Since 
Asuka is out still, Claude returns to Donald Love's penthouse.  He 
finds Donald who tells Claude that the packages he picked up in the 
ocean were a decoy.  The real package is in the plane at Francis 
International Airport and customs was in the process of stripping the 
plane when Donald paid for them to stop.  Claude heads over and finds 
the Columbians surrounding the plane.  He kills them and finds that the 
package is missing.  He sees a van that says "Panlantic Co." (remember 
that company?) on the side so he heads for the construction site in 
Newport.  Claude arrives and finds Columbians everywhere.  He kills 
them and heads up a lift to the top of the building and finds Catalina 
and Miguel there.  Miguel hands Claude the package but Catalina shoots 
Miguel and escapes.  Asuka appears and she's angry about Kenji's death.  
She says that everyone saw the Cartel kill Kenji (unaware that it was 
Claude).  She's going to work over Miguel for information and asks that 
he return for work later.  Claude takes the package to Love's 

Claude re-enters Love's place and he's asked to accompany his friend to 
Pike Creek to have an object authenticated.  Claude follows the 
Securicar and manages to keep the Cartel off it as it reaches the 
destination.  Claude goes back to Love's penthouse and he's now needed 
to take the Securicar and act as a decoy while someone else gets the 
object out of the building.  Claude heads over, grabs the truck, and 
leads the cops away while the object is moved.  Claude returns to 
Love's penthouse but finds an empty box and that Love is gone.  Claude 
decides to return to Asuka.

He arrives at the construction site and finds Asuka still torturing 
Miguel.  She informs Claude that Catalina has 3 death squads with the 
sole purpose of hunting Claude down and Asuka wants Claude to act as 
bait to lure them into a Yakuza trap.  He drives over to Shoreside Vale 
and attracts their attention and heads for Pike Creek.  He leads them 
into a warehouse parking lot and the Yakuza decimate them.  Claude 
returns to Asuka and he's told that the Columbians have a front 
company, the Kappa Coffee House, which they use to push SPANK.  She 
wants Claude to destroy all their stations in Liberty City to end this 
thread.  He heads out across the city and discovers 9 stations which he 
quickly destroys.

He returns to find Asuka showing Maria the art of torture.  Asuka 
informs Claude that a plane is coming into Francis International 
Airport with more SPANK for the Cartel.  She wants Claude to destroy it 
and collect the drugs so he goes there and finds some Columbian 
members, which he kills and then destroys the plane and collects the 

Claude heads back and finds Asuka and Miguel dead with a note.  It's 
from Catalina and it says that she has Maria and for Claude to bring 
$500,000 to the Villa at Cedar Grove.  Claude immediately collects the 
cash and heads over where he's met by Cartel members who check him for 
weapons and let him in.  Catalina confronts him and takes the money.  
She tells the Cartel to kill Claude but he manages to kill them 
instead.  Catalina heads off in a helicopter and Claude follows in a 
car.  She gets to the Cochrane Dam where there are Cartel members all 
over the place.  Despite this, Claude gets through them and as Catalina 
takes off in the helicopter he destroys it with a rocket.  Claude 
rescues Maria and they leave the area.  They walk along the top of the 
dam and Maria won't stop talking so as the screen fades a gunshot is

Niko Bellic came to Liberty City after he received a call from his 
cousin, Roman, who persuaded Niko to come.  Roman had claimed to be 
rich and living the sweet life but shortly after Niko arrives he finds 
this to be completely false.  Roman is, in fact, in trouble with 
numerous people for unpaid debts and he needs Niko's help.

G. Thank You/ Closing Comments

Well, that about sums everything up.  It took me several weeks to 
compile the original document and several days or weeks for each 
update.  I believe it's now around 101+ pages on Word.  If I do start 
another guide it would be a Metal Gear Solid Series Guide.  That one 
will be a killer.

First of all, thank you to Rockstar Games for producing an excellent 
series of games.  Keep it up.

I would like to thank Adam Marx (CanadianDude) for his Series Guide as 
I read it and it inspired me.  While my writing style and coverage is 
different, I enjoyed reading his work.

I would also like to thank Robert Allen Rusk (RARusk) as his 
walkthroughs were very well written and helped in certain parts where I 
forgot some missions.  I recommend any of his walkthroughs as they are 
very detailed and helpful.

Thanks to anyone else that contributes comments (those who did have 
been credited where they added the info) and I'll see you all on the 
World Wide Web.  You can be sure to read my reviews of other games on  You can find me posting away on the forum at
