"Roy Boy" Capra

Recommended Posts

Chef    304

672998c44f53855a846f6ed278627804.jpgRoy Santino Capra (born September 18th, 1968) is a 50 year old organized crime figure of Italian-American heritage, who presently resides in Los Santos, San Andreas. Roy is believed to serve as second in command, or Underboss to mafia veteran Salvatore "The Cheat" Lena, who has recently taken the reigns of the historical Los Santos crime family. The L.S. based family is said to have amalgamated power in the spring of 2019, allegedly serving as an auxiliary to the the waning Kansas city mafia (Civella crime family), of which several of its inducted members hold ties.

 

Early Life

 

Roy was born to parents Roger and Camilla Capra on a Friday afternoon in September of 1968. The youngest of five children in the family, three brothers and two sisters, the family’s finances were stretched thin for most of his upbringing. Roger and Camilla operated a small diner in the metropolitan area of Kansas City, beneath the relatively small three-bedroom apartment the Capra family called home. It was no secret that Roger dipped into some shady side business to pay the bills and bring home the bread. The diner was known to frequent several individuals with connections to La Cosa Nostra in K.C. and Roger himself would rent out the restaurant’s basement for a local book making operation.

 

In his youth, Roy was noted as a quiet child and an introvert. He was often bullied by older classmates due to his height, a shortcoming that has stuck with him his entire life as he measures in at an adult height of five foot, eight inches tall. This caused him to withdraw and develop social anxieties as he progressed towards his teenage years. He made an almost compulsive habit out of body building to compensate as a teenager, and expressed his insecurities by lashing out at those he felt targeted him as a weakling in his youth - teachers and classmates included. His lashing out and temperament issues often landed him in detention and suspensions, but to a struggling blue collar family, Roy’s issues were not a necessary focus. Roger developed an alcohol addiction in Roy’s early teen years, and his health further deteriorated as he worked himself sick. On Roy’s 14th birthday Roger suffered from a heart attack and was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. There was nothing to be done, and Camilla was left a widow and her five children fatherless.

The Capra boys came together after the death of their father to keep the family’s head above the water. Nicholas, the eldest brother of Roy, had some small-time connections with a cocaine supplier in the K.C. area known as “Joey Fingers” Mezzasalma, an individual who also held associate status in the Civella crime family. They decided to take up peddling the narcotic throughout their individual circles, and use their profits to help Camilla pay the bills in the household. They did this out of a few fronts, their father’s old diner as well as a local gym that Roy and a few other brothers spent most of their free time.

 

Dime bag peddling soon advanced into moving eight balls, ounces, and so on, which generated a need for enforcing, collecting, and punishment. It was Roy’s time to shine, and at age 16, he dropped out of school to pursue a life of crime full time. The Capra boys drug operation was eventually picked up by the watchful eye of a local neighborhood wiseguy, Samuel “Sammy Shanks” Eppolito, an older generation mafioso allegedly serving the infamous Salvatore “The Cheat” Lena as a soldier or “made man” in his crew.  Samuel saw the potential the young men had in the world of Cosa Nostra and began mentoring them in the ways of the criminal underworld. He took particular interest in Roy due to his tough-gun persona and his inclination towards the art of “physical persuasion.”

 

With the backing of a made member of Civella, the brothers’ sight lines expanded and their tools of the trade as well. They began to take on new horizons, focused more so on theft rings including B&Es, a chop shop, and ransoms. The drug operation would ultimately dissolve in 1991 after Mezzasalma was reported missing; presumably deceased.

 

Ascending The Ladder

 

Roy's turn from the realm of narcotics into the world of enforcing brought him into an entirely new social ring. In mobbed up social clubs throughout the neighborhood, Roy would rub elbows with some of the most prominent mafiosi in the K.C. LCN scene; simultaneously building a reputation for himself as a dependable problem solver. A direct consequence of his new-found friendships and ties lead to Roy transitioning away from his siblings in the Capra Brothers Gang. By the late '90s, Roy was formally introduced to street legend Salvatore “The Cheat” Lena, the caporegime pulling the strings of a profitable crew to which Roy belonged. This process of coming face to face with a captain to become a direct link in his chain is a phenomenon referred to in the world of Cosa Nostra as “going on the record."

 

At the same time, his brothers mostly stuck to their guns with gritty, small time criminality. They never quite progressed in the underworld the same way that Roy did, causing some what of a rivalry between him and the other Capra siblings. Their relationship is still unstable even up to present day, with the geographical distance keeping them from each others throats. Working for “The Cheat” directly offered Roy an opportunity to assist with a statewide loan sharking operation. Alongside Lena’s son-in-law Carmine “The Pinch” Basciano, Roy worked as a collections liaison and was ultimately put in charge of retribution and settling disputes between loan takers and guys like Carmine who dealt with the books. 

 

In 2001, Roy was contracted by Salvatore Lena himself to execute a hit  upon an associate to the crew by the name of William DeLuna. Evidence had surfaced through Lena’s street intel that DeLuna had been operating an “off the record” loan sharking ring within Kansas City. Undercutting and undermining his superior's racket, DeLuna offered a lower interest rate than what Lena charged. In the world of La Cosa Nostra, every member on the record is expected to fork over a cut of any profits made through the underworld. Any act to hide money or skim profits that belong to the upper echelon, is often met with great consequence and even death. “The Cheat” held no mercy for this rule. His reputation was on the line, and Roy was informed that seeing this task through to the end would earn him his personal nod of approval to become a made member once the family was considering new membership (referred to as “opening the books”).

On a rainy, cold night in November of 2004, Roy received word from a crooked officer on the crew's pay-roll that William DeLuna had just been pulled over on account of reckless driving when attempting to cross the Missouri-Illinois border. The officer placed DeLuna into custody, and Roy was then given an address to an abandoned meat plant as a meeting place. It was here that Roy discovered DeLuna, cuffed to a metal chair in the midst of the decrepit slaughterhouse. Two solemn shots from a .22 handgun would break the silence of the night as DeLuna’s blood was spilled; bringing an end to the rival loan sharking operation. A lesson was sent to the ranks of the K.C. mob - undermine “The Cheat” and your days are numbered.

 

Months later, a suitcase sunk in the depths of a marsh on the Illinois border was uncovered during a highway expansion operation. Inside the suitcase were remnants of the deceased, weighed down by a steel anchor that had been chained around the outside. Although police determined that it was clear mob involvement was the reason behind the crime, no leads as to whom had actually committed the execution were found. Meanwhile, in the dim light basement of Salvatore Lena's vacation home on the Gulf, Roy celebrated the next chapter of his life in the mafia. He was officially inducted into the ranks of the Civella family as a soldier.

 

The Westward Movement

 

After a 3 year stint in Jackson County Corrections for firearm related charges, Roy would re-emerge on the streets as a respected soldier for the Kansas City mafia. He was called upon by the underboss of the family, Peter Simone, to have a sit down regarding his future in the family. Also present at this meeting was John “Johnny Joe” Sciortino (presently the alleged head of the K.C. family), and Salvatore Lena. The specifics of what were discussed during this meeting are unclear, however a suitcase was exchanged before the group shared embrace and parted ways. Roy was spotted days later boarding a flight to Las Venturas, San Andreas. Authorities now suspect that Roy was given free reign to earn in Venturas while his main focus was assigned to enforcing a skimming operation, mainly focused on Caligula's Casino, which has been a money maker for the K.C. family since the ‘80s. It is also thought that at this time, Salvatore Lena retired from a long, prosperous career in organized crime to remain tied to the family as a neutral party and adviser. Recent activity from San Andreas, however, have led this suspicion to be doubted.

 

mug.png.886974160476be6608df59dbe2e77298.pngThroughout the late 2000s and as recent as 2017, Roy spent his days living in Las Venturas and ensuring the family’s interests ran smoothly without hiccups caused by outside forces. Simultaneously, with a small band of trusted associates, he ran his own protection rackets throughout a string of Payday loan shops along the L.V. strip as well as bookmaking rackets centered around thoroughbred horse and hound racing. Several of these payday loan establishments doubled as a front for money laundering. Roy would have his dirty money recorded in falsified income documents throughout the shops, which would then put his money back on the street in the hands of gamblers and tourists looking to cash in on Venturas’ reputation for turning rags into riches. The money would then circle back in through repayment, which Roy and his crew would ensure happened in a timely manner, as clean money that Roy could reclaim. For Roy, life was good.

 

Living large and lavish in Las Venturas would eventually come to a halt for Roy in 2017 when federal authorities unearthed a dark secret of Salvatore Lena and Carmine Basicano. Buried in a shallow forest grave along a popular jogging path, the remains of Joseph “Joey Fingers” Mezzasalma were discovered an alarming 26 years after he had been reported missing. For years, investigators alleged Mezzasalma was not a missing person, and rather a murder victim. An unnamed witness provided police with information regarding the disappearance of Joey Fingers, claiming he’d been rubbed out on orders from Salvatore “The Cheat” Lena over providing his daughter with narcotics. Fearing the arrests of Salvatore and Carmine would lead to indictments all over the west coast, the Civella family withdrew its interests from Las Venturas and began “spring cleaning” to hide as much of their illegal interests as possible. Roy departed Las Venturas on orders of the family’s acting boss, and remained inactive in Kansas City while he waited for the heat surrounding the bust to die down.

 

The trial for the murders proceeded for several weeks, as prosecutors and law enforcement alike scrambled to find physical connections between their witness testimonies and the accused. Although confident that they had finally caught their big fish, the Kansas City detectives were ultimately let down by a deadlocked jury that could not come to a unanimous decision and thus the two Cosa Nostra figures were released on mistrial. During this time of deliberation, Roy Capra made a number of personal visits to those connected to the case to ensure their heads were in the right place, and that events were being recalled clearly and fairly. Out of the twelve member jury, only two continuously returned with a not guilty verdict. Coincidentally, Roy had allegedly visited these two individuals several times over the course of the trial.

 

Salvatore Lena eventually made his return to the sunny state of San Andreas, leaving the events of the trial behind him with his head held high. He, along with others in the family, expected his son in law Carmine to follow suit and return to their operations in the west, but were surprised when he seemed to vanish off the face of the Earth. Suspicious that the pressures of the trial had caused Carmine’s loyalties to be tested, Salvatore requested Roy to investigate further. Lining the pockets of the right people and applying pressure where it was needed lead Roy to discover what he and Salvatore hoped to not be true, Carmine was cooperating with law enforcement post trial in exchange for witness protection and criminal pardon for his connection to criminal activities involving “The Cheat.” Betrayed by the selfish act of his own family, Salvatore immediately gave Roy the go ahead on liquidating his once loyal soldier Carmine - the husband of his youngest daughter, and father of his three grandchildren.

 

Weeks later, Roy bought himself a one way ticket to Los Santos to regroup with Salvatore and continue the Civella family interests on the west coast. In his wake he left behind the lifeless body of Carmine “The Pinch” Basicano; found in his family’s residence in late December with two .22 caliber gunshots in the back of his head.

 

The Chronicles of the Clinton Avenue Crew

 

With the loose lips silenced and a gradual decline of the heat on Salvatore Lena, it was time for the crew to re-establish its roots and obtain a hold in the city once more. To assist Salvatore, Roy decided to permanently relocate to the city of Los Santos. Along with Roy joined Frank “Cheech” Piccarelli, a strong up-and-comer in the family who became an official member around the same time as Roy. Frank was known as a quiet, level headed type who operated often times in the shadows. A contrast to Roy who made an effort to cultivate a strong street presence, no matter his setting. Frank was known to be a tight acquaintance of Lawrence Iraci, nephew of the long-time Civella soldier Pasquale “Patsy” Iraci who came up in the generation of old-timers which included Salvatore Lena. This is likely the connection which brought him to the west coast, as a replacement in the wake of Patsy’s retirement and move back to the mid-west. Frank came dabois.pngjoined by long time associate Peter “Moe” Conti from Kansas City, while Roy hand picked several fellow Las Venturas based gangsters such as Michael “Mikey Balls” Balotelli and John “Johnny the Gimp” Gallo to aid the crew’s expansion. 

 

Their decline during the trials inevitably caused the loss of the Textile District, more specifically Simmet Alley, from the crew's grasp. Roy and the crew situated themselves on Clinton Avenue, a historically Italian-American area located in the heart of Vinewood. Book making, extortion, drug trafficking and the sale of illegal firearms were just a few of the activities which the crew began making moves in, quickly popping up on the radar of fellow criminal organizations. Their allies grew from gangs operating in the ghettos of South Central, Los Santos to criminals of Eurasian descent (believed to be associated with Vor v Zakone). All of this aided the crew in becoming more profitable themselves and attracting a new generation of born-and-bred mobsters.

 

During this time, Roy and his band of like-minded associates developed a strong foothold in the city’s profitable drug trade. A grow-op was sprung by in partnership with Jamestown Mafia to meet the city’s growing marijuana market. By supplying various gang sets affiliated with Wah Ching and sureno culture respectively, Roy’s income and tribute to the crew grew immensely. This was due in part to the work of his right hand man, an associate of the crew and Liberty City native known as Thomas “Tommy Verbatim” Alo, or “Tommy Sunshine” as he was dubbed by Roy due to his bright head and eagerness  to impress.

 

Unfortunately, expansion into a “cowboy state” like San Andreas (a state which isn’t claimed by one particular group, but is rather an open playing field for various outfits) doesn’t come without competition. Roy and the others quickly became aware of another Italian-American organization within Los Santos shortly after they regained footing in the state. Not known to have any connection to a bigger family, individuals such as Anthony Scutari and Donald Pagano stood out to the Clinton Avenue Crew as the men believed to be heading the rival faction. To Roy, the other power did not cause concern as they operated much more openly and erratically in comparison, acting as a “heat magnet” and a distraction from Clinton’s activities. This neutral co-existence, however, experienced its first trouble when an associate of high notoriety made news. Frank “Freddie Icarus” Russo was pinned by R&R news, mislabeled as an associate to Scutari’s goon Paul Mazzanti. The pair were spotted together in public on several occasions after Frank was questioned in relation to a homicide connected to Scutari’s members. The legitimacy of Russo’s waste management firm was also implored in this article, which caused great concern for Salvatore Lena and Frank Picarrelli - both of which had invested interest in the company. This combined with Roy’s personal distaste of Frank Russo were the motives behind his death in April of 2019.

 

Already strained by the open nature of the rivals, Roy was personally affected when one of his associates was targeted by Donald Pagano over an argument involving his girlfriend. Scutari claimed self defense as the reason for the slaying, however the story given was loose and in Roy’s mind didn’t add up. Simultaneously, the traditionally Del Perro based mob was moving in on Vinewood, an area established to be the Clinton crew’s territory. No attempts were made to offer forward a cut of the operations on good faith to the crew. Coupled with this, Salvatore Lena questioned where permission for the murder came from and called out Scutari’s actions as breaking code. An attempt at a sit down was made, and ultimately failed with strong words exchanged between Lena and Scutari. It was at this time the deaths of both Anthony Scutari and Donald Pagano were ordered.

 

Roy was placed in charge of executing the hits, and he chose Thomas Alo as his partner in the endeavour. Donald Pagano was the first to fall, conveniently for Roy it came at the hands of Scutari’s own crew over suspicions that Pagano had flipped to authorities. Meticulous weeks of planning came to a climax in May of 2019. With his connections to gangland leaders Catalina Juarez and Cristian “Jumper” Valdez from the Jamestown Mafia sureno set, Roy had Scutari lured into a trap house with his newly appointment second in command Benito Fallone. Roy and Thomas entered the trap and executed Scutari and Fallone in cold blood where they sat. The whereabouts of the remains are known only by few, and LSPD suspects the disappearance to be an internal issue rather than a move by a bigger power.

 

Establishment of the L.S. Situation

 

After the eradication of the Del Perro based rivals, the group saw a more formal structure take form. Salvatore Lena returned from a trip home to Kansas City, where he was believed to meet with Civella family administration in regard to the group’s activity on the west coast. What was discussed in the aforementioned meeting, at this point, is entirely unknown. However the consequences marked a re-establishment of the historical L.S. crime family with Salvatore Lena at the helm. With him he took Roy as his underboss, and Frank Piccarelli as a consigliere. Shortly following the event, both Peter Conti and Thomas Alo were said to have received official induction into the crime family’s membership.

 

Personality Traits

 

A generally stoic looking individual, Roy’s bleak emotion and cold crystal blue eyes can leave those around him feeling uneasy and troubled if they’re unfamiliar with him on a personal level. Once that connection is made, Roy transforms into loyal and devoted individual. By those who know him, Roy described as being charismatic with dramatic highs and lows in accordance to his mood. When he’s happy, he can be your best friend, but when he hits an emotional low through anger or frustration, he’s often quite unforgiving and vicious. An unnamed accomplice once commented, “I’ve seen [Roy] go from hugging a guy and asking him about his family to turning around and saying he’d break his neck if he ever pissed him off. Working for him, you knew to stay in his good graces and God forbid you did something to flip that switch. ‘Cause when he’s seeing red, he’s totally unpredictable.” His mind is one that is plagued by psychopathic and sociopathic traits, which lends well to his chosen path in life as a career criminal and Cosa Nostra member. It is alleged that at this point in his life, Roy has participated in over 18 murders, either by his own personal handiwork or arranged through an outside party.
