Biography

Early Life

Vinnie was a criminal in Liberty City who worked for an unknown mafia family. Vinnie is the partner and boss of Mike, a formerly-homeless small-time thug. Several years prior to the game's events, Vinnie found Mike on the streets and took him in for the mafia, eventually making Mike a high ranking associate. They worked along side each other, with Vinnie as the brains of the operation.

Due to unknown circumstances, Vinnie and Mike had a plan to leave Liberty City. Behind Mike's back, Vinnie thinks very little of Mike, seeing him as nothing other then a "Stupid kid" and a pawn in his plans, regardless Vinnie continues to keep Mike at his side for a period of time, waiting and planing.

2000

Over the years, the two earned enough money to leave Liberty City for good. However, prior to their leaving in 2000, Vinnie insisted Mike do a few more jobs for the mafia before leaving. Vinnie sent Mike to complete several favors for the mob, in order to obtain even more money. Vinnie secretly put a bomb in his car and called Mike to meet him. Mike witnesses Vinnie allegedly being killed by the car bomb, with his "remains" found in the vehicle.

After his "death", Mike wanted revenge, and works for many sources in the Liberty City criminal underworld, such as 8-Ball, the owner of a bomb shop, Jonnie, a bartender with underworld connections in Liberty City and slowly uncovers who was behind the murder. Vinnie catches wind of this and stalks Mike's leads throughout the city, even going as far as to hire mobsters and to kill people when necessary starting with Jonnie. Vinnie murders Jonnie and Mike starts working with the Yardies leader King Courtney, who Vinnie has an apparent bussiness relationship with.

After Mike finds out of King Courtney's treachery, he works with Cisco, the leader of the Columbian Cartel and at the same time Asuka Kasen, leader of the Yakuza. Vinnie once again decides to take matters into his own hands and kills Cisco at the airport. Mike finds Cisco's body almost immediately after the attack and fights off Vinnie's hired thugs and sees Vinnie's car driving off. After a short chase Mike destroys Vinnie's car and finds out Vinnie is alive after he escapes the wreck. Vinnie finally reveals his true nature and motive to Mike. This shocks and angers Mike and after a short shoot out with Vinnie and his thugs, Mike manages to overpower them and mortally wounds Vinnie. Vinnie begs for his life, but Mike suspects that Vinnie would eventually betray him again. Vinnie tries to reason with Mike that any criminal greedy enough will try to steal the money from Mike and that he will end up dead before he can reach the city limits. Mike ignores this and finally kills Vinnie.

Shortly after Vinnie's death, 8-Ball was arrested and Mike defeated King Courtney, finally escaping from Liberty City with the money.
