(A long description, but please, bear with me....)
The only way in is by invitation and it runs on the standard Ten Commandments of the Mafia. They are as follows:
1. No one can present himself directly to another of our friends. There must be a third person to do it.
2. Never look at the wives of friends.
3. Never be seen with cops.
4. Don't go to pubs and clubs.
5. Always being available for Cosa Nostra is a duty - even if your wife's about to give birth.
6. Appointments must absolutely be respected.
7. Wives must be treated with respect.
8. When asked for any information, the answer must be the truth.
9. Money cannot be appropriated if it belongs to others or to other families.
10. People who can't be part of Cosa Nostra: anyone who has a close relative in the police, anyone with a two-timing relative in the family, anyone who behaves badly and doesn't hold to moral values.
The mafia runs in four major families now a days. The run under the secret names of The Clubs, The Spades, The Hearts and The Diamonds.
The Clubs: Masters of the dark side of the casinos and clubs, they deal drugs and are most commonly found in the scary dark alleys behind the club. They tend to be a more violent family. The king uses them to take care of of the members of other families who violate the commandments without telling him and special clearance. They solution to every problem of theirs is to pull their guns.
The Spades: Often finding themselves doing the clean up for the other families. They keep Cosa Nostra under the radar. They are the only exception to the third commandment, and even then, each of their actions must either be cleared by The King, or reported to him directly afterward if the third commandment is broken in an emergency. Whenever illegal activity takes place, they are the first there after the fact to make sure no word gets out. The underlings of this family are often set to the task of shadowing members of the Clubs.
The Hearts: The nicer of the families, if they can settle a dispute without violence they will. Although they have an aversion to violence, if something is serious enough they aren't against it. They're mediators for all disputes in families. They work along side each of the families without getting in the way. The King trusts them with secret information he doesn't to the other families and has them work behind the scenes. They are to most cautious to The King and listen the best; Very rarely do you hear of a Heart breaking a commandment.
The Diamonds: Addicted to the glamorous side and the money. Their activity is usually centered around the newest 'get rich quick' scheme. Some people see them as the laziest of the families but they actually work a lot for their money. Usually The Cosa Nostra tries to stay out of the spotlight, but celebrity power sometimes works in their favor. When these occasions arrive, the Diamonds are the ones to come to. They use the power of celebrity to benefit the families, but still know when to stay out of the spotlight.
Each family works in ranks. Starting with King being the highest rank, 2 being the lowest and beginning. In each individual family, the ranks go from 2 to Ace. The King is a universal position, and wears the seal of each of the four families. The position of Ace is an honorable one, earned by the member whose been in the family the longest, or is the oldest. They work alongside the King. The Aces serve more as an advisor to the King. The Ace may not overrule any of the King's decisions. By proving your loyalty to your family, you move up in rank when so decided by The King. He decides how the rankings progress when someone dies in a family, and who takes their place. He promotes each member. He also chooses who is allowed to join the Cosa Nostra.
The families' appearance is very diverse, although it is most usual to be up kept and very formal looking. The way to tell if someone of another family is in the Cosa Nostra, is to look on their sleeve or the lower left hem of their shirt. they would have a seal with their families emblem. Anyone not in the family wearing the emblem of one has the ruling of the king to be shot on spot or killed by the employment of a Club.
These four families run out of Vegas. They all take pride in their work. Each families is the head of one of the four Major Casinos. Recently, the cops have become suspicious of the four families as another gang has moved in.They call themselves The Jokers.
•The Jokers have no law, reason or moral in their actions. Their main objective is to cause mayhem and disrupt the peace. They're very mischievous and hard to find. Rumor has it their 'home' is the Casino that is mysteriously rising in ranks to be among the four families. The Cosa Nostra has very little information regarding the Jokers and is sending lower ranking family members and aspiring members to their suspected casino as spies.
As the Jokers cause havoc and hell, the four families must keep out from under the radar of the police as they reach to exterminate -or possibly recruit- The Jokers, and continue their regular habits.

Name: Vincent Rabillino
Family: Doesn't Apply
Appearance: Wise brown eyes that seem aged beyond his years. He's very fit and about 6 foot tall. his hair is always neatly combed and pitch black. He's the only of the Cosa Nostra dressed in an all dark gray suit. He wears a gold tie and the emblems of the families are embroidered on the tie.
Personality: He always thinks before speaking, unless he is very upset, then he has the tendency to make outraged calls and order the death of someone. He rose through the ranks of the the Clubs. He often seems to know everything, even when people are sneaking about as he has spies everywhere.8/22/2012 #3
Name: Miseri Reign
Appearance: Miserie gives off the impression of a princess. She prefers to wear her skirts and dresses, her most often worn outfit consists of a black dress, form fitting and cut short. She wears very little jewelry. Simple diamonds and black chains suit her well. Her hair is deep red and curly, falling halfway down her upper arm. Most often, she wears it up in a bun or messy top do. Deep green eyes fit her olive complexion and piercing glare.
Personality: She sometimes gives off the impression of mean spirited, but really shes thinking of the bigger picture. She can be sarcastic and jokes a lot. She works hard despite always seeming to laze around. Like every Club, she has the tendency to lose her head on occasion and make rash decisions. As her position requires, she is extremely skeptical and hard to convince. As far as relationships go, she often chooses to not get attached. As Queen, she has a certain level of charisma, but compared to the other three Queens, she is much less friendly, partially on account of her interests being so different, and being one of the youngest members of the Cosa Nostra as a whole.
History: Shes risen through the ranks to Queen. Most people in the other families believe she became Queen only because her father was king before his passing. Really she was only allowed to skip the rank of a two as his daughter. Her hard work and loyalty pushed her towards higher ranks. She is probably one of the hardest working members in any family, but most prefer to start rumors and talk behind her back because of her outward and public appearance. As far as many are concerned, she parties and sleeps around, and is the celebrity of the Club Palace (the Club's family casino), choosing to lay around all day.8/22/2012 . Edited 8/22/2012 #4
