Cerchio di velluto or the Velvet Circle.
Leads: Roisin Russo ( erlinea) and Leone Ottavio Moretti (willodale)
type: Mafia Italian
Spot: Coastal Shipping (south docks)
Θ ➤ Il Capo~ At the top of the pile is the Capo. In the case of the Cerchio di velluto this a lady, a Mafia princess who has broken from the main family to create her own faction here in SRV. She makes all the major decisions and all the income gathered ultimately came to her. Her authority was required to control the members and to resolve any disputes.
Θ ➤ Il Secondo~ Just below the Capo is her Secondo or underboss. The Capo's eldest son in this case. He is the second in command. He can act in proxy for his mother and resolve disputes without involving the Capo herself.
Θ ➤ Caporegime ~ The Captain. How many Caporegime's there are in a given family simply depends on how big that family grows. The Caporegime's role is to manage their own crew within the crime family, they will be given a designated geographical location to operate within, or they will be given a particular racket to run. A Caporegime's career relies heavily on how much money they can bring into the family. They can keep some of their earnings and the rest are passed up to the Secondo and ultimately the Capo.
Θ ➤ Soldati ~ At the bottom of the tree are soldiers or saldato, who will report to the Caporegime . Soldiers are street level mobsters who essentially are no more than your average type criminals and there can be many soldiers assigned to one Caporegime. The majority won’t earn much because any money earnt is passed up the tree. Soldati are the ones who will stick their necks on the line, and a lot of soldiers can end up murdered by rival gangs or banged up in jail. ~
⇧ Soldati wanting to move up to Caporegime must perform 2 quests or task set for them by the Capo or Secondo. This tests their commitment to the circle. After which upon successful completion, usually requiring proof that the task is done, they would go through a moving up ceremony and become Caporegime
Θ ➤ Associati ~ The final part of a family comes in the shape of an Associati . Up until now every role within the family from Capo to Secondo, Caporegime to Soldati will have all been made men or women. However, an associate is exactly how it’s described. They are not actual members of the Circle, but they work with the Circle soldiers and captains on various criminal enterprises. An associate is simply someone who works with the Circle, including anyone from a burglar or drug dealer to a lawyer, investment banker, police officer or politician. Associates can still become made-men/women if they meet the criteria set out, if successful they will be promoted to a street Soldati usually. ~
⇧ Associati wanting to move up to Offical Circle members, Soldati must perform a quest or task set for them by the Capo or Secondo. This tests their commitment to the circle. After which upon successful completion, usually requiring proof that the task is done, they would go through an Initiation and become Soldati
