Mark Anthony Volpe is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, mentioned in the LCPD Database in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Mark Volpe is a caporegime for the Messina Family along with his brother, Fredo Volpe, who has been a police informant since 1998, though many suspect Mark of been the rat. Mark was unaware of his brother's activities and had once sliced off a family enforcer's tongue for suspecting his brother of being a rat.

Trivia

  • "Volpe" is Italian for fox.
  • The character's surname may have been inspired by Albert Volpe a crime boss played by actor Carmine Caridi in The Godfather Part III.
  • In real life the Volpe brothers were racketeers from Turtle Creek Valley, Pittsburgh who had ties to the Pittsburgh crime family during the Prohibition era.
  • It is possible that he and his brother are based on cousins Frank and Edward Lino who were both Capos in the Mafia, one of which (Frank Lino) turned informant against Bonnano boss Joe Massino in 2006.
  • On the LCPD Database it says missing on his profile so it is possible he was killed by Harvey Noto.
