These are all the main characters in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Toni Cipriani

Voiced by: Danny Mastrogiorgio

The speechless character “Claude” is not set to return as main character in Liberty City. Instead we play as Toni Cipriani, a highly ranked member of Salvatore Leone’s mafia and returning character from Grand Theft Auto 3. Toni returns to Liberty City after being forced to flee after killing a man as a favour to the don.

Now, Toni, voiced by Danny Mostrogiorgio, is back with the Leone Family and out to prove that he is still the toughest wiseguy around. Salvatore puts him back to work immediately as he takes on the Triads, the cops and the Sindacco Family. Toni is controlled using the PSP’s analog stick.

Salvatore Leone

Voiced by: Frank Vincent

Don Salvatore Leone first appeared in the GTA series in Grand Theft Auto 3.Voiced by Frank Vincent (“Goodfellas”, 1990), Salvatore heads up the Leone Family – a mafia with immense control over Portland, and a bitter rivalry with the Forelli’s.

Salvatore was killed in GTA3 after betraying his No. 1 hitman “Claude”, but this doesn’t affect the storyline as Liberty City Stories is set 3 years prior to GTA3. Leone made his second appearance in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in the mob-controlled city of Las Venturas. In San Andreas, Salvatore co-owns a casino on “The Strip”, but their business soon collapses when Triads from across town succeed in robbing the casino.

Kazuki Kasen

Voiced by: Keenan Shimizu

Well dressed and well groomed at all times, Kazuki Kasen is the older brother of Kenji Kasen and currently head of the Yakuza in Liberty City. A very ambitious and driven man, Kazuki feels a heavy burden to do well for his family in America and has recently begun forcing his way into many mafia controlled areas. This has brought him quite a bit of attention from the various families around town. Namely the Leones, Forellis and Sindacco.

Kazuki, voiced by Keenan Shimizu, is married to the noble and beautiful Toshiko Kasen, though only for political reasons. Kazuki seems to prefer the company of his Yakuza men to spending time with Toshiko. Or any woman for that matter…

Giovanni Casa

Voiced by: Joel Jones

A stocky girthsome man, Giovanni Casa runs one of Liberty City’s favorite Italian delis in the St. Marks district and has caught the eye of Toni’s mother, Ma Cipriani, with his special spicy Sicilian sausage. Since his return to Liberty City, Toni’s mother has been none to pleased that Toni has not so much even called her while he was gone, going so far as to claim that Toni is not half the man that Giovanni Casa is.

Giovanni is a tough talker but when it comes time to back it up he reverts to his true cowardly self and calling Toni less of a man than Casa has especially raised Toni’s ire since Giovanni is rumored throughout the neighborhood to have some childish fetishes. Toni is determined to expose Casa for what he really is. Ultimately, Casa is a mommy’s boy, and he doesn’t seem to care whose mommy.

Jane Hopper

Voiced by: Gordana Rashovich

Jane Hopper is Liberty City’s corrupt union boss who will often ‘contract’ her unions out to the highest bidder. Extreme negotiations are her forte – If you need a strike, she can make it happen. If you want a strike settled, she can take care of it. Greasing her palms is the surest way to do business in Liberty City. Her hardball approach of doing business makes Jane more of a man in many people’s eyes than even the toughest wise guys or city officials. Though, rumor has it that Jane may actually be a man herself. Or used to be.

Leon McAffrey

Voiced by: Ron Orbach

If there ever was a profile for a dirty cop in Liberty City, Detective Leon McAffrey, fits the bill to a tee. Not taking his actual job of being an officer of the law too seriously, McAffrey has found that helping out the criminal and underhanded political elements in Liberty City pays better than John Q. Government ever could.

Buying his way to the rank of detective he has found that money does all the talking and has little interest in climbing the ranks or garnering favor within the department. Lately a monkey wrench has been thrown into his usual means of doing business. He’s been given a straight as an arrow partner: the guy either has to learn to work the streets properly (by taking bribes and selling people out) or he will soon discover Leon is not the nice guy he pretends to be. Will his new partner rat Leon out, or rat himself out?

Paulie Sindacco

Voiced by: Unknown

Head of the Sindacco family interests in Liberty City, Paulie Sindacco is rarely seen. Because of this he has become known as ‘The Invisible Don’, and spends a great deal of time traveling to and from Las Venturas where many of the main Sindacco holdings are located. He entrusts Sindacco affairs in the city to his capos, who run operations for him exactly as he wants them run… or else! Those that don’t fall in line with Paulie’s views or that don’t know their role and overstep their boundaries are given one way tickets to the bottom of the river. With Paulie being out of Liberty City so much, he finds that this “do or die” approach keeps his men in good order.

Vincenzo Cilli

Voiced by: Joe Lo Truglio

When Toni left Liberty City Vincenzo “Lucky” Cilli was still getting drinks for the made guys in Leone bars and poker rooms. His good looks, eduation and smooth demeanor quickly caught the eye of Don Salvatore, though, and he has risen through the ranks quickly in the last couple years. Now on the fast track to being Consigliere, in Toni’s absence he has amassed a significant amount of power and influence in the family. With Toni back, Sal is putting Vinnie in charge of keeping him busy.

An inveterate ladies man, at heart Vinnie seems only interested in himself. Despite this his unusual lucky streak has made him a favorite of the Don’s. Sal’s decision to pair him up with Toni will surely lead to some serious fireworks.

JD O’Toole

Voiced by: The Greg Wilson

Joseph Daniel O’Toole is both an interminable pervert and career criminal. He currently finds himself in the employ of the Sindaccos. He manages their girly club, “Paulie’s Review Bar” in the red light district of the city. A position in which he’s very happy indeed, marrying as it does, both sides of his nature. JD has been working his way, very slowly, up the power ladder within the Sindacco family for several years. But the head of the family’s business interests here in Liberty City, has held Joseph back for a long time.
