About me: Joseph Russo head of the Russo crime family of NewYork city. Growing large enough to become recognized as a family. Joseph ruled with a diplomatic hand. Often being regarded as the ‘gentle don’. Calm and calculated, preferring words over wars or bullets.
However he did not propel to Boss right away. Joey got his start working for GeeGee “Rose” Capone. After being given the blessing to branch out, he connected with Jimmy “the hammer” Fazio running a successful pizza shop, that netted quite a bit of money. Being brought in on several racketeering charges. Joey was sentenced to five years behind bars at Rikers federal prison. After serving his time, he got out and hit the streets again growing the family one piece at a time. Wanting to expand internationally he opened Russo import and export business. After contacting Shinobo Odyabun about opportunities in Japan there was a meeting that took place, that lead to a crossing on Odyabun’s part. There was an attempt on Joey’s life and he was able to escape although gravely wounded. Russo laid low for many years after those events. He is now emerging back in NewYork. His family non existent, Joey is at crossroads to rebuild his family or join one and ride through the ranks.
