    NOW that we have that done....RANKS

    The Don, or boss, is the head of a crime family who controls all the operations. The head of the family, usually reigning as a dictator, is sometimes called the Don or "Godfather". He commands a variety of underlings, the caporegimes, the soldatis and the enforcers. In the Chicago Outfit, the Don is really a fallguy puppet, as the real boss in the family is actually the consigliere. The boss receives a cut of every operation taken on by every member of his family. Depending on the family, the boss may be chosen by a vote from the caporegimes of the family. In the event of a tie, the underboss(es) must vote. In the past, all the members of a family voted on the boss, but by the late 1950s, any gathering such as that usually attracted too much attention. In other families, the Don chooses his successor.

    The underboss (also known as sotto capo) is the second most important position in a crime family, directly beneath the Don himself. The underboss is usually a relative of the current Don. The underboss, usually appointed by the boss, is the second in command of the family. The underboss is in charge of all of the capos, who are controlled by the boss. The underboss is usually first in line to become acting boss if the boss is imprisoned or dies. There are normally no more than one or two underbosses in a family, if there's more than one at all.

    A caporegime (or capodecina) is a high ranking member of a crime family and one of the Don's most trusted allies. A capo (which is Italian for captain) is in charge of a crew called a regime. There are usually four to six crews in each family, possibly even seven to ten crews, each one consisting of up to twenty soldatis and associates, though in the past (or in the event of a war) the crew had a larger number of men. Capos run their own family territory but must follow the limitations and guidelines created by the boss, as well as pay him his cut of their profits. Capos are nominated by the underboss, but typically chosen by the boss himself.

    Soldatis (or Soldiers) are members of a crime family, and can only be of Italian background (although a few families, including the real-life Gambinos, require men to be of only half Italian descent on their father's side). Soldiers start as associates that have proven themselves. When the books are open, meaning that there is an open spot in the family, a capo (or several capos) may recommend an up-and-coming associate to be a new member. In the case that there is only one slot and multiple recommendations, the boss will decide.
    The new member usually becomes part of the capo's crew that recommended him. Some soldiers work by themselves, earning money for the family alone though most are part of crews. Sometimes a soldier will be called a button man, because, in theory, when a capo presses a button, someone dies. They are also called made men, who have made their bones, by committing a murder in front of Mafia witnesses or committed a murder by orders from a high member of the family. This ensures the soldier's reliability: he will never testify against a man who could testify against him. Being made is the beginning but not the end of a Mafia career.

    Consigliere (Adviser) is an important position in a crime family. Considered as the third-most valuable position next to the Don, all of the Don's orders usually come through the Consigliere, although he holds no actual power. The Consigliere is an advisor to the family and sometimes seen as the Boss's "right-hand man". They are often low profile gangsters that can be trusted. They are used as a mediator of disputes or representatives or aides in meetings with other families. They often keep the family looking as legitimate as possible and are sometimes, themselves, legitimate apart from some minor gambling or loan sharking. Some do not have crews of their own, but still wield great power in the family. They are also often the liaison between the Don and important figures, such as politicians or Judges. A Consigliere's main job is to act as the Don's "auxiliary brain", helping the Don formulate plans. A Consigliere, by the very nature of his job, cannot afford to simply be a yes-man to the Don, and is one of the few in the family who can argue with the Don on family matters. When the Don comes up with a business plan, the consigliere has to contantly challenge that plan's weaknesses until it's foolproof. The Consigliere is the only one in a family who knows all of the Don's contacts and secrets, and if made to talk, could bring an entire family to ruin.

    Enforcers are hired hoods for a particular family, who have either yet to be made, or who are not Italian but have proven their worth in battle. If an enforcer proves his mettle, he becomes an soldati of the family, sometimes referred to as, 'un amico nostro' or 'a friend of ours'. Sometimes enforcers are already made men who work by themselves, for example, Luca Brasi of the Corleone crime family.

    kinda extra....

    Made Man/b] These guys are untouchable: They can mess with you, but you can’t mess with them. Getting “made man” rank is like graduating high school then being made an associate, but not treated so highly or with as much respect as higher-ranking men. Once you’re a made man, your in the famiglia; you’re apart of a crew; you are family; its a very high honor to become a made man. You can get more info from your capo, caporegime, or me. We will give you missions on what you need to do to become a made man. Every individual is different in what they must do to become a made man

    Associate: theres 2 types of associates
    [b]Business associates: these guys are the money makers they are strictly for making money they are not within the family but are treated with as much respect as a underboss since they are so vital they are basicly business partners but they work for us instead of working with us.

    Wiseguy associates: these guys are the ones who stand outside looking tough and gaurds stuff and does errands and things until they can finally become a made man and get in on all the inner workings of the Corleone Family until they reach made man rank they serve as an outer ring of protection heres something to help you get an idea: theres a sodlier who is shooting people on the front lines but way behind back in hq the generels are strategizing those genrels are the capos and the underboss and me the made men are the guys gaurding the genrels and the people on the frontline shooting are the associates


    GAH on the verge of shooting myself...feels like a research report...Now fam ehh hmm hist...kinda...

    The Corleone crime family is one of the Five Families operating in New York. It was formed by Don Vito Corleone and the two men who would later become his caporegimes, Peter Clemenza and Salvatore Tessio, who fronted their operations by starting the Genco Pura Olive Oil Company, named after Don Vito's Consigliere, Genco Abbandando.
    They became the most powerful crime family in America after defeating Salvatore Maranzano in the early 1930s, and by the end of the decade the organization was run from a compound in Long Beach.
    However, in the mid 1940s, a business proposition from Tattaglia drug kingpin Virgil Sollozzo nearly destroyed the family, hospitalising Don Vito Corleone and forcing his eldest son Sonny in action.
    The situation was further escalated when the youngest Corleone brother Michael killed Sollozzo and his Police Captain bodyguard, Mark McCluskey, forcing him to flee to Sicily and starting a mob war. The war claimed the life of acting don Sonny, and the still weak Don Vito sued for peace with the other families, realising that his true enemy was not Tattaglia, but Emilio Barzini, who was attempting to crush the Corleones and take over their position as the most powerful family.
    After Don Vito's retirement and later death from a heart attack, the family business was taken over by Michael, who exacted vengeance on the rival family's dons along with Moe Greene, Carlo Rizzi and Sal Tessio for conspiring with the rival heads. Later Micheal moved the family to Las Vegas, Nevada. Michael was attempting to make his business legitimate, but was drawn back into crime after a failed attempt on his life by Miami gangster and old friend and business partner of the Corleone family, Hyman Roth, who was attempting to stop the takeover of Las Vegas.
    This action resulted in Roth's death as well as the death of Michael's own brother Fredo, who had unwittingly conspired against the Corleones. The Corleone family continued to struggle on, and was almost completely legitimate by the end of the 1970s. During that time the boss of the Corleone crime faction, Joey Zasa, aligned with Tattaglia boss Osvaldo Altobello, and both orchestrated a major assassination attempt in Atlantic City. Shortly after, Joey Zasa was himself killed at a festival in Little Italy. In 1980 Micheal Corleone finally got out, handing the business over to his nephew Vincent Mancini, requesting that he called himself Vincenzo Corleone


    Like most of their contemporaries, the Tattaglias were bootleggers during Prohibition. With the repeal of the Prohibition, their primary racket became prostitution, earning Don Tattaglia a reputation as a pimp, and causing the family to be held in low regard. Tattaglia's womanizing would occasionally distract him from matters of business, but he compensated for this by surrounding himself with other strong leaders, such as his sons, Bruno and Johnny, and his consigliere, Freddie Nobile.
    editA New Position of Power
    In the 1940s, the Tattaglias began to gain power after being supported by drug kingpin Virgil Sollozzo, even managing to gain a vital toehold into Little Italy, crippling the Corleone family's empire. They also managed to take Don Vito Corleone out of the picture by shooting and wounding him and sending him to the hospital.
    Their luck would not last for long however, as Johnny Tattaglia, who was planning a Corleone bloodbath, was discovered and glassed in the head with a bottle. His brother Bruno Tattaglia then filled his position as underboss and picked up where Johnny left off by kidnapping and killing Corleone soldier Aldo Trapani's girlfriend Frankie Malone. Bruno himself was dealt with shortly after by Trapani who killed Bruno by throwing him into a cremation oven at funeral home Tito Morelli's, and Sollozzo was murdered during a peace talk with Michael Corleone. This act made Don Tattaglia declare a state of mob war against Don Vito Corleone, having been secretly backed up by Don Emilio Barzini.
    A Much Needed Peace
    After being forced into a stalemate, Tattaglia and his allies set up Sonny Corleone for assassination, avenging Bruno's death. Vito, having recovered, called a meeting of the Commission and swore that he would not fight the Tattaglias anymore.
    This peace came just in time, as the Tattaglia family had been massively crippled by the war. However, after Don Vito Corleone died of a heart attack, Michael sent Rocco Lampone to the St. Sebastian Hotel, where he murdered Don Tattaglia and the prostitute he was with.


    The New Regime
    Don Altobello
    Phillip Tattaglia was succeeded by his brother Rico, who was unused to his brother's business and nearly brought the family into bankrupcy before he died too, although of natural causes in 1962, after he had stepped down the previous year. The family then became property of consigliere Osvaldo Altobello, who became a strong ally to the Corleone family.
    In 1980, the Tattaglias were finally crushed after Altobello betrayed Michael Corleone to Licio Lucchesi and the corrupt members of the Vatican Bank. Michael Corleone poisoned Altobello with a packet of cannoli that Connie Corleone had given him for his birthday. It is unknown what happened with the family afterwards and who succeeded Altobello.



    The Stracci crime family was founded by Don Victor Stracci and is one of New York's Five Families, although operating mainly in New Jersey. They were considered to be the most violent family, and Corleone caporegime Peter Clemenza described them as 'pure fuckin' evil'.
    Business wise, the Straccis controlled an armada of highway repair trucks. They also had enough political influence to allow their trucks to travel overloaded, which damaged the highways, however, the Straccis also owned road repair businesses which had exclusive government contracts, leading one business to create work for another. Due to Don Stracci's old fashioned nature, they had little involvement in prostitution, but due to their control of the docks in New Jersey and Manhattan, they had an important role in the distribution of narcotics.
    The Straccis began as a family in the early 1930s, shortly before the Pacification of New York by Vito Corleone. Victor Stracci set up a legitimate business front in New Jersey, all the while pulling the strings and gradually gaining territory in New York. In the early days, they were assisted by the Alioto family, who later lost much of their influence in New York after Luciano Alioto was executed by Luca Brasi, although they eventually gained it back under the new Don Emilio Alioto.
    During the Five Families War the Straccis fell on hard times when many of their caporegimes, consigliere and underboss were all assasinated by Corleone soldiers. This led them to retreat, eventually suing for peace in 1955. However, the peace was ill-fated, as Don Stracci was executed on the way to a negotiation and his family fell into dissaray.
    After Victor Stracci's death, the new Don sued for peace with the Corleone family, a peace which was to last until his death in the Atlantic City helicopter attack orchestrated by Joey Zasa.


    The Barzini crime family is one of the most powerful crime families of New York, second only to the Corleones. It was founded by Don Emilio Barzini and operates mainly out of Manhattan and Staten Island. They were also known to have business interests in Wall Street, Sicily, Cleveland, Las Vegas and even Hollywood, where it was rumoured they often supported movie mogul Jack Woltz. In New York itself, the Barzini family owned a total of three warehouses in Midtown and Hell's Kitchen, which enabled them to do business in one of the five districts of New York.
    In the 1940s, Don Barzini plotted with rival Don Phillip Tattaglia to destroy the Corleone family and gain dominance over New York. Barzini almost succeeded, pushing Vito Corleone to call for peace after the death of his eldest son, Sonny. During this time till the mid 1950s the Barzini family was at the height of it's power and overtook the position as the most powerful crime family in New York. They then began moving in on Corleone's territories, so much so that Salvatore Tessio, Vito's most savvy capo, made a secret deal with Barzini. They also assisted the FBI in building a case against the Corleones.
    However, the wily Don Vito discovered Barzini's plot and his son Michael took revenge, killing Barzini, who was replaced by Paul Fortunato. Under the leadership of Fortunato the family expanded their narcotics operation and became also heavily involved in the garment sector in Manhattan. Fortunato resented the Corleone family's hypocrisy by getting into the drug business, but later became their ally, defending Michael Corleone against Carlo Tramonti's accusations at a Commission meeting.


    The Cuneo crime family started as a small operation ran out of Hell's Kitchen and upstate New York. Their front company was a fleet of milk trucks that delivered across the city, which earned their Don, the nickname of 'The Milkman'. They also had a large cigar and weapons racket running out of their hub in Hell's Kitchen, managed by Enzo Cuneo.
    They saw themselves as noble 'warrior princes' and thus would not attack any other family without just cause. On the other hand, if they were slighted, the Cuneos would attack with ruthless agression.

    The Mob War
    Leo Cuneo
    In the 1940s, the Cuneo family became involved with the Barzini family against the Corleones in the Five Families War. Due to no official action being taken against their family, the Cuneos did not take action against the Corleones until their secret racket at the West Port Warehouse and Holden Holdings was raided by Corleone family underboss Santino Corleone and soldier Aldo Trapani. This moved them into action, and the war claimed several of their key members, before Vito Corleone called a hasty peace after the death of his son, Sonny.
    After the War, the Cuneo family began to return to a normal existence, peacefully negotiating the return of properties taken from them during the War. They did, however, suffer a major loss in business when, after a raid on the Manhattan Trust in Midtown, their laundering train was stopped in the railyards by Aldo Trapani, which lost them a major source of income.
    In 1955, Don Cuneo himself was visiting the family's matress hideout at the Savannah Hotel, which he hoped to gain back from proprietor Umberto Raffini. However, as he was leaving the building, Cuneo was trapped in the revolving door and killed by Corleone soldati Willie Cicci.
    Cuneo was replaced as head of the family by Leo Cuneo, who negotiated peace with the Corleones until his death at the hands of Joey Zasa's assassins in 1979.
