|~ Carlo Falcone about Leo Galante and Frank Vinci|
Carlo Falcone is the main antagonist for the second half of Mafia II. Carlo is the don of one of the three Empire Bay crime families, the others being run by Frank Vinci and Alberto Clemente. Falcone was into the dealing drugs business and sent some of his men to kill off the Clemente family due to Clemente muscling in on Falcone's drug business.
Vito Scaletta and Joe Barbaro started working for the Falcone Crime Family after being cheated by Alberto Clemente and his capo Luca Gurino. Vito and Joe became Soldatos once Luca was eliminated. Carlo then sent the newly recruited Joe and Vito to blow up a room full of Clemente's gangsters as well as Clemente himself. However it turns out that the only reason Falcone wanted Clemente out of the picture was because Carlo was secretly in the dope business and Clemente tried to muscle his way into the business (Frank Vinci is totally against this business). Vito vouches for one of Clemente's former Soldatos Henry Tomasino, who wanted to defect to the Falcone family after his former boss was assassinated, however after discovering that Henry was actually working for the feds Carlo wanted Vito dead for bringing Henry to his family, even attempting to turn Vito's best friend Joe against him, however Joe and Vito were able to stick with their friendship and kill Carlo.
