History

Parents emigrated to the United States from the small Balkan state of Malvetia, shortly after the First World War. Young Tony had to go out to seek work to help the family make ends meet. He tried working his way through medical school in Vienna, but was shunned due to his "mud people" heritage, and his proclivities * in the chem lab.  It wasn't long before he found his way into crime, in some of the seedier neighborhoods of Neptune City, and got involved with several gangs that were instrumental in the Rum Smuggling business. After a few rather brutal run-ins with the heavy muscle of the street gangs, Anthony (leaving his childhood name behind) had amassed enough in a way of a following, as well as the ability to out-think and out-shoot his opponents, and he was able to take over. Through muscle, bribes, and diabolical planning he has run the organized crime syndicate of Neptune City ever since.
