Vince Pelosi is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a supporting character and the quatrenary antagonist in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
Little is known about Vince's early life, but at can be assumed that at some point he was born in Algonquin, Liberty City where he lives alongside his nephew Rocco Pelosi. Although never explicibly explained, Vince and Rocco are somehow related to Ancelotti crime family boss Don Giovanni Ancelotti and his daughter Gracie.
At some point, Vince and Rocco joined the Ancelottis, and soon became enfocers for the family. Rocco later became a made man, though Vince's status in the family is unknown.
Vince and Rocco would become loan sharks who collect from any people that are indebted to the Ancelotti family. In 2008, the two also got a task to collect money from Tony Prince, who was in debt to Don Ancelotti. The two developed a deep hatred towards Tony.
Events of The Ballad of Gay Tony
|“||And guess what, we ain't here for Gracie.||„|
|~ Vince saying that he is there for Tony and not for Gracie.|
After a bank heist, Vince and Rocco arrive at Tony's apartment in order to collect money from Tony. The two enter Tony's apartment and meet Luis Fernando Lopez, Tony's bodyguard, for the first time. After a few racial comments and insults to Luis, Vince and Rocco take the money and leave the apartment, laughing at Luis and Tony.
Vince and Rocco are later seen briefly at the Maisonette 9 club. The two talk to some girls.
After the kidnapping and release of Gracie, Rocco tells Luis to meet him and Vince at the underground restrooms of Middle Park. There, Vince and Rocco tell Luis that Giovanni is angry at Luis and Tony, and wants one of them dead, while the other will work for them. As they prefer to work with Luis at the future, Rocco and Vince order him to kill Tony.
Vince and Rocco leave for the club, and Luis leaves soon afterwards. The three confront Tony, and Luis says that he's sorry. Rocco gives Vince's Pistol .44 to Luis and tells him to kill Tony. Luis, however, had "second thoughts" at the last moment and instead of killing Tony, he shoots Vince in the head, killing him. Rocco is spared due to his "made man" status.
Similar to his nephew, Rocco Pelosi, Vince was a brutish thug and loan shark who showed racial and homophobic trends. He tends to be rude and aggressive towards people he disrespects, such as Tony Prince and Luis Fernando Lopez, and often insults them.
- Vince and his voice actor, John Tormey, have a very strong resemblance to each other.
- Vince's status in Ancelotti Crime Family is unknown. However, since Luis killed Uncle Vince and was not chastised by Tony, hence why Luis didn't kill Rocco (as Rocco was a made member of the Ancelotti crime family), then it can be assumed that he was not a made member of the Ancelotti Family. It's possible, however, that it was developer's oversight.
