'''James "Jimmy" Pegorino''' (1957-2008) was a character in [[Grand Theft Auto]] series who appears as a main character in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and the secondary antagonist. He is also mentioned in [[The Lost and Damned]]. Pegorino was a crime boss of the [[Pegorino crime family]] in Liberty City which he took over after his father died. He is seen as the weakest boss due to the fact most of his muscle are hired from [[Little Italy]] and are really un-intelligent. He was often bullied by the other Liberty City Mob families because of his men and that his family cannot get a seat on [[The Commission]]. Pegorino's downfall came after he either [[A Revenger's Tragedy|trusted the game's main antagonist]], or [[Out of Commission|turned his back on its main protagonist]].

Jimmy Pegorino was born in [[Alderney City]], Alderney.

Jimmy was first arrested for theft 3 times in the mid 1970s, between the ages of 16 and 19; at some point he married [[Angie Pegorino]], and they had a son.

===Taking control over the family===
Eventually, Jimmy took control over the Pegorino Family from his father. He desperately wanted to join [[The Commission]], although his family was still weak and no family had ever been given a new seat since the original five families founded it. He sought to impress them by improving his own family, allowing the [[Pavano Family]] to operate in Alderney and anonymously weakening the [[Ancelotti Family]] (hoping none of the five would realize it was him and distrust him). He learned that a leader shouldn't place value on his employees until they either impress him (like [[Phil Bell]]) or, ironically, become a threat to him because of their over-ambition (like [[Ray Boccino]]).

In 2008, Phil recommended [[Niko Bellic]]'s services to Pegorino. Meeting Niko, he first had him [[Pegorino's Pride|run security]] in a deal with the [[Pavano Family]]. The deal was a set up, causing Niko to have to chase down the attackers with an injured Pegorino. In retaliation for this, Pegorino [[Payback|later sent]] Bellic to kill a group of them at [[Auto Eroticar]], and exclaimed that they were going to the mattresses, that is, going to war with the Pavanos.

In 2008, Phil recommended [[Niko Bellic]]'s services to Jimmy. He first had Niko watch over a deal he was having with members of the [[Pavano crime family|Pavano Family]]. The deal was a set-up, and Jimmy's personal bodyguards were killed by the Pavanos, and his tribute was stolen. Niko rescued Jimmy, and chased a group of remaining of the remaining thugs to get Jimmy's money back.
   
Later on, the police began thoroughly investigating his "businesses", leading Pegorino to believe that several of his employees had become police informants. Pegorino initially suspected Niko and threatened him with a shotgun, but was convinced otherwise and then ordered him to [[Flatline|kill]] Anthony Corrado. Corrado, who was confirmed to have worn a wire, suffered a heart attack after talking with Pegorino over the phone, but survived and received police protection in the hospital until Niko eliminated him. Believing several other members had turned states, Pegorino ordered Niko to [[Pest Control|kill]] Ray Boccino.

In the game's finale, [[One Last Thing|Pegorino orders Bellic]] to take part in a heroin deal with Niko's nemesis, [[Dimitri Rascalov]]. and was promised a great deal of money. Niko is unsure whether to comply and be paid or take his revenge, and his final decision is left to the player.

Niko and Phil are [[If the Price is Right|betrayed by Dimitri]], forcing them to fight through the warehouse and steal the money. Pegorino became very happy and saying Niko good luck with the money. A hired assassin targeting Niko sent by Dimitri accidentally kills [[Roman Bellic]] at the [[Mr. and Mrs. Bellic|wedding]] (and is counter-killed). Niko [[A Revenger's Tragedy|tracked down the duo]] with help from [[Little Jacob]], right before Dimitri betrayed and killed Pegorino, saying he "didn't work this hard to share the spoils of a victory". Dimitri was chased down and killed by Niko on [[Happiness Island]] soon after.

During the game's final battle in Out of Commission, Jimmy, just like Dimitri in A Revenger's Tragedy, has 100% body armor, as well as 200% health (about twice as much health as a normal enemy), allowing him to sustain about three times as much damage as a standard enemy. However, he is only equipped with a [[pistol]] (unlike Dimitri who has a [[Carbine Rifle]]).

"I know enough about you, your cousin, your friends. I know a lot of people around you end up in jail. But that's the same all over town. This is a dying game."
― Jimmy Pegorino

James "Jimmy" Pegorino is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as the secondary antagonist of Grand Theft Auto IV. He is also mentioned in The Lost and Damned. Jimmy was the boss of the Alderney based Pegorino Crime Family, which he took over after his father died. He is looked down upon by the Liberty City based Mafia organizations and is unable to get a seat on The Commission.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Jimmy Pegorino was born in Alderney City, Alderney. His father was the founder of the Pegorino Family, an Italian-American faction that was highly disrespected by all of the crime families from Liberty City. Jimmy was arrested for theft three times during the mid 1970s. At some point in his life, he married Angie, and they had a son together.

Taking control over the familyEdit

Eventually, Jimmy gained leadership over the Pegorino Family, and he desperately wanted to join The Commission, despite his organization being incredibly weak. He sought to impress The Commission by doing favours for them, such as allowing the Pavano Crime Family to operate in Alderney. Jimmy also thought it would be a good idea to anonymously weaken the Ancelotti Crime Family whilst improving his own, in order to prove that he is able to run a stable organization. He learned that a leader shouldn't place value on his employees until they either impress him (like Phil Bell) or, ironically, become a threat to him because of their greed (like Ray Boccino).

Jimmy's biological son had committed suicide, and he then accepted his bodyguard Anthony Corrado as a son in nature.

Unbeknownst to Angie, Pegorino has a young mistress who lives in an apartment in Acter.

Later lifeEdit

"Wake up you fucking mook. Everybody's trying to fuck everybody! Let's just hope they got the manners to smile in our faces before they do."
―Jimmy Pegorino

In 2008, Phil recommended Niko Bellic's services to Jimmy. He first had Niko watch over a deal he was having with members of the Pavano Family. The deal was a set-up, and Jimmy's personal bodyguards were killed by the Pavanos, and his tribute was stolen. Niko rescued Jimmy, and chased a group of remaining of the remaining thugs to get Jimmy's money back.

In retaliation to the Pavano's betrayal, Jimmy later sent Niko to follow a couple of Pavano mobsters to a crew meeting at the Auto Eroticar dealership and kill them all. Jimmy stated that they were going to war with the Pavanos.

Later on, the police began to thoroughly investigate his "businesses", leading Jimmy to believe that several of his employees had become police informants. Jimmy initially suspected Niko and threatened him with a shotgun, but was convinced otherwise and then ordered him to kill Anthony Corrado. Corrado, who was confirmed to have worn a wire, suffered a heart attack after talking with Jimmy over the phone, but survived and received police protection in the hospital until Niko eliminated him. Believing several other members had turned states, Jimmy ordered Niko to kill Ray Boccino.

EndingsEdit

In the game's finale, Jimmy orders Bellic to take part in a heroin deal with Niko's nemesis, Dimitri Rascalov. and was promised a great deal of money. Niko is unsure whether to comply and be paid or take his revenge, and his final decision is left to the player.

"Dimitri, what's the problem? Me and you is partners now. We're back on top."
―Jimmy before being killed by Dimitri.

Niko and Phil are betrayed by Dimitri, forcing them to fight through the warehouse and steal the money. Jimmy became very happy and saying Niko good luck with the money. A hired assassin targeting Niko sent by Dimitri accidentally kills Roman Bellic at the wedding (and is counter-killed). Niko tracked down the duo with help from Little Jacob, right before Dimitri betrayed and killed Jimmy, saying he "didn't work this hard to share the spoils of a victory". Dimitri was chased down and killed by Niko on Happiness Island soon after.

"You fucking double crossing immigrant shit!"
―Jimmy trying to kill Niko, but he accidentally kills Kate McReary

Niko rebels and kills Dimitri, Jimmy's organization becomes nothing. He personally attempts to kill Niko at Roman and Mallorie's wedding, but accidentally kills Kate McReary. Niko tracked down and killed Jimmy with help from Roman and Little Jacob. After chasing and shooting him down, Niko told him that the Commission thought he was a "fat fucking joke". Niko begins to walk away, Jimmy raises his gun to try and kill Niko, but before he can Niko shoots Jimmy in the head with an Assault Rifle.

"The Commission - the Old Families - I know some of those guys. And they thought you were a fat fucking joke! A joke! Huh."
―Niko Bellic before killing Jimmy.

During the game's final battle in Out of Commission, Jimmy, just like Dimitri in A Revenger's Tragedy, has 100% body armor, as well as 200% health (about twice as much health as a normal enemy), allowing him to sustain about three times as much damage as a standard enemy. However, he is only equipped with a pistol (unlike Dimitri who has a Carbine Rifle).
