Johnny Royals' good people, least that's what Don Aiuppo said when he sent me to work for him in Philly. He's the face of the New Mafia: Educated, a dreamer, more schemes than an architect on speed, but still ruthless as ever.
You see he says It aint about the locals so much. Their your family, you take care of em, but the ones who pay they get the goods. That prick afleck'd get whatever he wanted before royal's own mother'd get a penny.
He took us into russia when the wall came down, tapped into the EU, Now he's got fealers in all the 'istans. run through a couple of guns, some designer drugs, and he's got friends for life. But here he keeps it upscale. That way his clientel is unbribable, least wise not with money.
Last off keep an eye on his gun hand, he'll get the first shot, but he'll probably miss. Relies more on shock value than accuracy. Hopes he'll get enough shots in before you figure out what he's doin to make sure you don't figure it out.
I hear he took it hard when I left, must not have taken it too hard, I aint shot any of the neighborhood boys yet. I hope it stays that way.
