Lucciano Crime Syndicate
Founded in the 1920’s by Sicilian Immigrant “Lucky” Lucciano, and still run by Lucky today, the Lucciano Crime Syndicate made a name and fortune during Prohibition, in bootlegging, and is the Crime Syndicate from which one Alphonse Capone learned his trade before moving to Chicago. Lucciano was deported by the US Government in the late 30s and then allowed back in after agreeing to keep the Docks free of Nazi infiltration during World War II. He is also responsible for the Organization of “The Five Families”, the five most powerful Mafia families in New York. Lucky’s organization holds itself separate and above the Five Families, and has also taken several smaller ones, including the Corleone family, under it’s protection.
Unbeknownst to any, Lucky is an Immortal, a member of that rare breed of human that cannot die (except by losing their head). Unlike others of his kind, he has not taken on another identity, and uses the fear of his immortality and eternal youthfulness to keep those beneath him in line. It is said around NYC, no one crosses Lucky more than once. The Lucciano Syndicate controls most of the various ‘Organized’ criminal elements in the City, and keeps a close eye on those it does not. Recently, it has become apparent to many in the Supernatural Community, that Lucky is apparently using his influence and power in an attempt to keep some of the darker and more violent aspects of the supernatural world from entering into New York, and it is rumored that he is seeking sponsorship as a Freeholding Lord under the Unseelie Accords.
