Joey Leone was born in [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]] and grew up around his [[Salvatore Leone|father]], who in the late 1980s became the [[Boss|Don]] of the [[Leone Family]]. He, however, had no ambitions of becoming a made man in the family, deciding to concentrate on small time crime, although he is said to be the underboss and attends important family meetings along with Caporegime Antonio Cipriani and made man Luigi Goterelli. In between [[1987]] and [[1992]] he employed [[Carl Johnson]] to steal cars for his [[Joey's Garage|garage]], which he had established in the [[Trenton]] district of [[Portland]], Liberty City. He eventually loses the services of Johnson who returns to [[Los Santos]] for the funeral of his [[Beverly Johnson|mother]], although he continues with his work as a mechanic. His business continues to be successful throughout the 1990s, appearing again in [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], set in [[1998]]. His father, however, does not appear to be pleased with Joey, claiming in 1998 that Joey wasn't as involved in the family, and [[Toni Cipriani]], Capo of the Leone Family, was more like a son.

BiographyEdit

Life up to 2001Edit

Joey Leone was born in Liberty City and grew up around his father, who in the late 1980s became the Don of the Leone Family. He, however, had no ambitions of becoming a made man in the family, deciding to concentrate on small time crime, although he is said to be the underboss and attends important family meetings along with Caporegime Antonio Cipriani and made man Luigi Goterelli. In between 1987 and 1992 he employed Carl Johnson to steal cars for his garage, which he had established in the Trenton district of Portland, Liberty City. He eventually loses the services of Johnson who returns to Los Santos for the funeral of his mother, although he continues with his work as a mechanic. His business continues to be successful throughout the 1990s, appearing again in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, set in 1998. His father, however, does not appear to be pleased with Joey, claiming in 1998 that Joey wasn't as involved in the family, and Toni Cipriani, Capo of the Leone Family, was more like a son.

2001Edit

In 2001 he is introduced to Claude who drives his favourite prostitute, Misty, to his garage from Luigi's Sex Club 7. Joey then begins to employ Claude, initially having him murder Mike Forelli, a prominent member of the rival Forelli Family, and "Chunky" Lee Chong, a Triad selling the drug SPANK through a noodle stand. Joey continues to employ Claude, having him steal a Securicar, chauffeur Leone Family Capo Toni Cipriani, dispose of the body of a deceased Forelli Family mobster and act as a getaway driver in a bank heist. Joey meets Claude again when Claude drives Joey, Toni and Luigi to Salvatore's Gentlemen's Club. Joey also has a long standing rivalry with the Forelli Family, having reportedly killed a number of the Forelli mobsters.

Claude continues to work with the Leone Family until a paranoid Salvatore decides to try and kill Claude, resulting in Claude and Maria Latore fleeing to Staunton Island. Claude was then tasked with killing Salvatore by Asuka Kasen, co-leader of the Yakuza, who was looking to employ Claude. Claude carried out his orders, killing Joey's father. It is unknown who succeeded Salvatore as Don of the Leone family, though some believe Toni and Joey are the most likely.
