Alone is the man who rules an empire, for amongst him, there is no equal. Before he was boss…he was underboss. Enforcer for the family that now bears his name. His ascent to the throne has not been without controversy or bloodshed. They say if you want power… you must take it… no truer words have ever been spoken… Sergio and I go way back. Before I took over the Chicago Outfit, I was a captain in the Trevisano family, Sergio was underboss. What is now the Dibiassi Family was once the Trevisano family… headed by Carlo Trevisano. Snitches, informants and surveillance sent the old man to Sing-Sing on a 100 year stretch.
His departure made way for him to usher in his degenerate of a brother Mike ‘the Terrier’ Trevisano as acting boss. We call him that because the fuck is small, wiry and fearless. But… it is one thing to be fearless... …It’s another to be feared. And that right there was a problem. It’s a problem when people fear the underboss more than they fear the boss. Sergio is an enigma...To understand him, you have to know how he thinks…and it is hard to do that when trust is an issue. It is an issue because he does not trust... anybody. Hell… half the time, he doesn’t trust me and we’ve known each other most of our lives... I’ve seen him second guess his personal doctor, his attorney, his accountant, his own fuckin brother…His belief is that…every family has been brought to its knees by someone on the inside... the guy who took the oath, omerta... off snitching to the feds. Men of honor absent trust…that’s a topic to be debated over a plate of pasta at Mezzaluna’s one night…not that I’ll ever change his way of thinking… point blank... trust is a luxury that comes at a price he is not willing to pay. Hence, his distaste for rats, snitches, moles and informants.
