The '''Faustin Family''' was a [[Russian Mafia]] family in [[Liberty City]] and the second most powerful Russian family in the city after the [[Petrovic Family]]. They play a prominent role in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], which results in all leading members of the Faustin Family being killed by [[Niko Bellic]].
+
The '''Faustin Bratva''', later known as the '''Rascalov Bratva''', is a gang featured throughtout the ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' story arc, as well as making a short appearance in ''[[The Lost and Damned]]''.

==History==

===Background===
  +
The Faustin Bratva was founded by [[Mikhail Faustin]] with [[Dimitri Rascalov]] during the early to mid 1990's, shortly after the end of the Cold War. At the time, when both men were still in [[Russia]], it was a more two-men organization, with both Faustin and Dimitri sold hash for tourists in the [[wp:Red Square|Red Square]], as well as being convinced for murder.
  +
  +
Eventually, prior to [[1998]], Faustin, now a family man, and Dimitri, still single, moved to [[Liberty City]], the [[United States]]. They both based in [[Hove Beach]], where they formed a Russian gang, soon to be known the Faustin Bratva. In Hove Beach another Russian Mafia was located, the [[Petrovic Bratva]], led by the strongest Russian mobster in the city, [[Kenny Petrovic]]. The two gangs managed to co-exist, although the relationship between the two worsened as Faustin began to suffer from drug addiction and paranoia.
  +
  +
Between the late 1990's and [[2008]], several men joined to Faustin's synidicate, including [[Vladimir Glebov]], [[Ivan Bytchkov]], [[Sergei]] and [[Andrei]]. Using his money, Faustin opened the [[Perestroika]] club and [[Comrades bar]] as fronts for the Mafia's members, the latter was directly managed by Vlad. Faustin also got shares from [[Joseph Kaplan]]'s sex shop, [[The Peep Hole]].

====Early connections with Niko Bellic====
  +
In 2008 Vlad begins employing [[Niko Bellic]] as his hired gun as Niko's cousin, [[Roman]], owes money for Vlad. Niko is forced to do several missions for the loan sharks, including collecting protection money from a Chinese shop and a laundromat, stealing a [[Blista Compact]], and eliminating Ivan for insulting Faustin. However, upon discovering that Vlad slept with [[Mallorie Bardas|Roman's girlfriend]], Niko chases down and kills Vlad.
   
The Faustin Bratva, is a large family of [[Russian Mafia]] members, who seem to run in both [[Dukes]] and [[Broker]]. The family is headed by Pakhan [[Mikhail Faustin]], an erratic and paranoid cocaine addict who lives in a mansion with his [[Ilyena Faustin|estranged wife]] and rebellious [[Anna Faustin|teenage daughter]] who was going out with [[Jason Michaels]], a member of the Lost gang in Alderney. It would seem [[ Faustin |Faustin is]] a member of the Bratski Krug, or Circle of Brothers, a Russian version of the Italian-American Commission. Broker is run by one of the family's Brigadiers, [[Vladimir Glebov|Vladimir "Vlad" Glebov]], a Russian loan-shark operating out of "Comrades" until he is executed by [[Niko Bellic]].
+
Vlad's death eventually discovered by Dimitri and Faustin, who send Andrei to capture the Bellic cousins. Faustin executes Andrei in rage for bringing the two to his house, while giving Niko a choice to work with the Bratva, to which Niko agrees so Roman will live. At this point Dimitri sees Niko's usefulness to help him become the new leader of the Bratva.
   
Mikhail's orders for numerous hits on people for trivial matters draws unwanted attention from the [[Law Enforcement|law and]] upsets his partner, [[Dimitri Rascalov]], who is angry that Mikhail has stopped following the unspoken rules of organized crime. Another Mafia family, the [[Petrovic Family]], almost wage a full-scale war on the Faustin family when [[Lenny Petrovic]], Underboss son of Pakhan Kenny Petrovic, is murdered on orders from Mikhail. This is averted when Dimitri secretly strikes a deal with Pakhan [[Kenny Petrovic]] to use Niko to kill Mikhail. Dimitri then assumes control of the Faustin family with his new partner, [[Ray Bulgarin]], Niko's old boss in the human trafficking ring to whom Niko, supposedly, owes money to. The Faustin family under Dimitri and [[Ray Bulgarin|Bulgarin's]] new leadership betrays Niko and attempts to kill him. They then set fire to Niko and Roman's apartment and taxi depot, running the cousins out of Broker and Dukes.
+
====Fall of Mikhail Faustin====
  +
After several missions, Faustin orders Niko to assassinate [[Lenny Petrovic]], Kenny's son, much to Dimitri's dismay, as such act will cause an all-out war between the two factions. Dimitri fails to stop Faustin while Niko successfully kills the boy, causing Petrovic to call death on Faustin. Meanwhile, Faustin ignores Petrovic's threats and sends Niko to do one final attack against the Russian kingpin; destroying one of Petrovic's fronts in [[Bohan]].
   
After the death of Mikhail Faustin, Dimitri went independant, the Faustin Bratva was no more, adverting to the [[Rascalov Family|Rascalov Bratva]].
+
Seeing this as an opportunity to take over the organization, Dimitri makes a deal with Petrovic as a way to spare both him and Niko; Faustin has to be assassinated by Lenny's own murderer - Niko himself. Niko storms into Faustin's club, eliminating his guards and executing Faustin on the club's roof, not before Faustin warns Niko of Dimitri's eventual betrayal.
   
===Appearence===
+
====Rise of Dimitri Rascalov====
  +
True to Faustin's words, Dimitri betrays Niko during a meeting at the docks, selling him over to Niko's old boss [[Ray Bulgarin]] (who Dimitri made an alliance with). Their combine forces fail to kill Niko, but manage to force him and Roman out of [[Broker]], leaving them in Bohan. Dimitri then re-creates Faustin's old gang in his own image - founding the '''Rascalov Bratva'''.
   
The Faustin Bratva wear suits and sportcoats, often complementing with russian fur hats and aviator glasses, as opposed to the [[Petrovic Family]], who mostly wear cheap tracksuits and second-hand coats.
+
Dimitri then begins to seek more power and money, as well as killing Niko once and for all. He orders [[Roman's Kidnapper|one of his men]] to kidnap Roman as to lure Niko and kill him, but this attempt fails as Niko guns down every single member in the ambush.
   
==Known Members==
+
He also blackmails Deputy Mayor [[Bryce Dawkins]] for money, but Bryce's lover is discovered to be [[Bernie Crane]] - an old friend of Niko. Niko once again stops Dimitri's men from revealing Bryce's homosexuality. A Rascalov Bratva unit also attacks Niko and Bernie when they have a boat trip, but it is eliminated.

Vlad's death eventually discovered by Dimitri and Faustin, who send Andrei to capture the Bellic cousins. Faustin executes Andrei in rage for bringing the two to his house, while giving Niko a choice to work with the Bratva, to which Niko agrees so Roman will live. At this point Dimitri sees Niko's usefulness to help him become the new leader of the Bratva.

After several missions, Faustin orders Niko to assassinate Lenny Petrovic, Kenny's son, much to Dimitri's dismay, as such act will cause an all-out war between the two factions. Dimitri fails to stop Faustin while Niko successfully kills the boy, causing Petrovic to call death on Faustin.
