Mark Anthony 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 brothers activities and had once sliced off a family enforcer's tongue for suspecting his brother of being a rat. Mark owns several sports betting rings in the boroughs of Liberty City, and is a dedicated mobster.

  • 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.
