Giovanni Medici XIII

The Medici Corporation was and is a very lucrative underground company that mainly served as a major front for most of the illegal activities that the Medici family and their partners would commit. They started in Italy back with the father of the first Giovanni Medici, and over multiple generations the influence they had grew rapidly in Europe. Right now it had a strong influence in the underground world, but due to changes in politics, they needed to expand there influence into both Europe and Asia. It was decided that since they had such a firm grip in Europe, it was no longer necessary to worry about their standing there. It made them capable of shifting their focus with full force on Asia. It was well known that a significant portion of the world’s money laid in illegal activities, but Europe’s illegal market was second in the world to only one: “Neo-Nagasaki.” As legend goes, Neo-Nagasaki is also a front, just like Medici Corporation. It was simply a name that the politically correct world could use. To everyone else, it was the headquarters of the most competitive, violent, and profitable illegal activities in the world. Living there was the ultimate game of high stakes poker. Medici wanted to go all in.

Starting from day one, the Medici Corporation was responsible for heisting multiple small businesses and taking them over. An army of well paid hired hands arrived in large masses and struck with lightning fast blitzkrieg. They had an extra incentive, if they could capture 15% of the city in 8 hours, all the surviving men would be granted three female servants from his old slave trade in Europe. Prostitution in Europe was high and the prices were cheap which made the trade no longer as profitable as it used to be. He had no further use for them. Giovanni Medici had chosen to arrive during the monsoon season when torrents of rain would drench the streets of Neo-Nagasaki. He didn’t want the blood of pathetic maggots tarnishing his future city. Homes of business leaders were raided in large scale gun fights. When one was captured, they would be stripped, hog tied, dragged to the street, castrated through whatever available means, and then shot multiple times. The estates that most business leaders lived in were on high rise hills, and the rain would carry most of the carcasses down toward other sectors of the city for all to see. Medici wanted everyone to know he was here. From 9PM to 5 AM the next day, there was nothing but carnage. Medici had nothing to lose at this attempt, and none of the smaller business expected anything like it. Though there were many casualties on Medici’s end, the blitzkrieg tactic was sufficient in capturing his goal. In 8 hours, 15% of the city was his to control, and already his mercenaries were raping the women and pillaging what they could find. Engineers from his European business were already building the Medici Empire in the heart of what would be known as the Medici District, and soon Neo-Nagasaki would be known as Medici City.

A limousine was parked in the driveway of a large estate of a former high ranking official in one of the businesses he had exterminated. A bodyguard opened one of the doors on the limousine and held an umbrella over it. Another bodyguard appeared who quickly moved aside while a well dressed man in a black business suit stepped out. By his side was an ornately designed falchion sheathed over his left hip – The Medici family sword, and at his ankle a sparkle of gold would hint to another well crafted concealed blade – The Medici family dagger. It was obvious he was packing heat, who couldn’t notice the two enormous 50 caliber Mark VII Desert Eagle Pistols strapped around his waist?

His weapons did have a provocative feel, but it was his build that struck fear in most people. He was in his late 20s, but his pinstriped suit only emphasized his large muscular build. He was currently the tallest Giovanni Medici out of the total 13 that have existed standing at 6'6". At the same time he was the most rutheless of them all. It is rumored that he was responsible for his father's early death because he was eager to take over the family business at the age of 25. He claimed his father was assassinated by someone who held a grudge, but then again nearly everyone in Europe held a grudge against the Medici family - everyone except their business partners who through loyalty alone have gained significant wealth from working with the Medicis.

Medici walked briskly into the mansion before him, quickly followed by both bodyguards and was met with a grand foyer.


"I suppose this will have to do for the night."

He then looked at the man to his right who was not holding the umbrella.

"You know what to do, get to it before I shoot you myself. Lazy ass..."
