Hello thanks for taking a look at our family
Are you tired of drama running rampant through your gang? Is you crew not giving you a fair share of the money/loot? Well the Manganos are here to change that.
The Manganos are a mafia-styled crime family but we adhere to the "old ways"; where respect, honor and loyalty mean just as much (or sometimes more) than making money.
Handling business and raking in cash is only part of what we are about. Covering each other's back and making sure everyone receives their fair share is important. Keeping your cool and seperation personal issues from business issues is the key to success. Ranks within our organization, are as follows:
Don~ The "don" is the title given to an Italian crime syndicate boss. His word is often considered as divine to the family. The "don" is normally a man of honor, integrity, and does what is best for his family - not what is best for him.
Underboss~ The "underboss" is the man directly beneath the don. He oversees more of the dull activities of the family, such as ensuring jobs get carried out when they're given - especially when given by the don himself.
Consigliere~ The "consigliere" serves as a pure embodiment of the family. He/she serves the role of an adviser/counselor for the don himself. The consigliere is one of the few members of the family that can actually argue with the don without disrespecting him.
Head of Security ~ As the name states, the "Head of Security" ensures the safety of the Don, the Underboss, and the Consigliere's. It is this person's divine duty to protect the heads of the family at all costs - even if it means their own life.
Capo ~ The "capo" is considered to be a made member in the family. Serving as a lieutenant to the don, a capo oversees smaller operations with smaller sects within the family. In a city controlled by a mafia family, the capo would be in control of specific boroughs and smaller families, even.
Button Men~ The "button men" are men who do the basic illegal activities for the leadership of the family. These men normally do not meet with the don much.
Hitmen ~ The "hitmen" of the family are perhaps among the most feared members of the family. When someone has wronged the family, or if it is in the best interest of the family, a hitman will eliminate the target either swiftly or painfully. By the time you normally catch on to a hitman that is on your trail, it is a high possibility the hitman knows where you live, knows your family members' location, and perhaps even the type of insurance you have.
Bodyguard ~ The "bodyguard" is someone who is willing to give their life in order to keep the leadership of the family safe. A bodyguard will stand in front of a reign of bullets to shield the Don, Underboss, and even the Consigliere. A bodyguard typically will always answer to the Head of Security instead of the Don, personally.
Soldier~ The soldiers of the family are the backbone of the family. These are the individuals that place their uttermost loyalty in the Don in return for practically nothing. As a result in serving the Don, soldiers typically receive a good pay, decent protection, and maybe even the occasional favor from the Don. These people are always of Italian descent. A soldier has completed the initiation process into the family.
Initiation Ritual ~ One must be initiated into the family via a sacred ritual that began in Monreale. The ceremony begins at a dinner with the Don himself - normally, this is the first time a recruit will meet the Don. On both sides of the Don will be the Underboss and the Consigliere among other representatives of the family. The Underboss moves forward and places a handgun and a dagger in front of the initiates. After proper time the initiates state an oath, "As burns this saint, so will burn my soul. I enter alive and I will have to get out dead." The Consigliere then unsheathes a dagger of his own and slices the tip of the right index finger of the initiate. The Don then finishes the ceremony stating, "This blood symbolizes the unity of our families. We are one and we are all - now let us eat", and thus so finishes the initiation process.
Recruit~ A recruit of the family is normally someone who wishes to rise high through the crime syndicate. They seek to live the mafia lifestyle, or to fulfill a service to the Don for the sanctity of their lives. A recruit can either be of Italian descent, or not.
**Please do not apply if you do not think that you can follow our tenets**
Serve in the best interest of the family, not in the best interest of your pocket.
The Don of the family is the physical embodiment of the family - and as such, your divine leader.
Do not bite the hand that feeds.
Leaving the family can only be done through your death. Remember this.
Aid your fellow family members, for they are now your flesh and blood - brothers until death.
Be a man of honor. Respect must be earned before it can be given.
Keep your ears and eyes open, and your mouth shut at the right times.
Failure to obey the orders of the Don will result in your immediate termination from the family.
Retain a certain degree of independence. The Don will not always be there to settle your issues.
Do not complain in the face of adversity or in the face of defeat. If you can't pay, do not play.
