During the Werewolf Rebellion, a demon by the name of Travis Valentine had come to power. He was the one spearheading the rebellion against the laws that had lasted for 150 years. He had gained momentum and formed a mafia that has lasted to this day. Shortly after the change of Mayors, a different demon family had taken their chance to form their own. The Rossi Mafia had disliked how Humans had been able to walk away free after condemning everyone to this city in the first place. The group had been behind a few of those killings as well as spurred a few others to do some of their own. They planned to keep up until either all humans were removed or turned.
As the years passed, four major Mafias had come into power: Valentines, Rossis, Hearts, and Phon.
The Valentines were spearheaded by Travis Valentine, a demon with a werewolf wife. A Man born and breed from a mafia home. His roots had come from the Italian Mafia and the one to take over the family business in the human world. He was honestly a force to be reckoned with and not taken lightly. He had brought most of his family along with him for a better life, though even that was forged through blood. His family had quickly become him core group, allowing his 3 daughters, 2 sons, and a handful of grandkids to manage different important factors of the mafia as a whole.
The Rossis were controlled by Racheal Rossi, though she often used her own husband as the political figurehead to allow her to work from the shadows. A family full of devils, she had big plans to have her eldest daughter, Rhyan, take over for her and continue to rid the city of humanity and weak minded people. Her youngest daughter, Mason, had also been employed to work, yet their only son, Luke, had split from the family to become a personal secretary for the mayor.
The Hearts were a small family of vampires who really only had risen to so high because of their stakes in their food source as well as bad blood between the Rossis. While they didn't control much territory, going after them would likely result in their death. Candie and Daniel Heart had four children who all chose help their parents strive towards a better life as vampires.
The Phons were a group of monstrosities that had risen to mafia status simply by taking over the different gangs around the city. Their leader, Yaoxl Phon, was a hideous beast who attacked first and asked questions later. He simply didn't care too much of the political game that was played as long as he could hurt, kill, and get away.
As the years continued, only Valentines and Rossis remained as the two major mafias. The Hearts partly mixed with the Valentines, partly quietly bowed out and worked on making their race a better place to be. The Hearts had opened up a brothel to allow men and women to work and gather information. After all, people with loose lips liked to sleep around. It also was a glaring spot in the underground that thwarted the Rossis, giving the Valentines a small foot in the door to owning even just a small section without too much hassle. As for the Phons, they had been more or less pushed out of the scene when their leader had been placed under arrest. In fighting occurred with no actual winner. Many say it was better off this way.
The Valentines and the Rossis had focused on different things and created their empires in different location. Valentines had complete control over the upper world, watching goods and businesses flourish and fall. It was even rumored that they had their claws into the political game of the city and even ran what the mayor did and didn't do. As for the Rossis, they dominated the underground, pushing illegal activities like drugs, crime, and trafficking. Many different drugs had been made, but the most dangerous one at the time was Renegade: a peppermint tasting drug that caused demons a feeling of euphoria they could never get before crashing hard. Highly addictive substance that effects users even years after being off of it. Simply smelling peppermint caused them to go into a frenzy to get that high once again.
Decades passed with tensions rising. One of Travis' sons, Trever Valentine, had a hand in causing a lot of issues before his younger brother Kalense had stepped in to become next head of house. A good fighter, Travis was warry to allow his eldest son the title of the next Mafia boss due to his softer nature as well as his history with the Hearts and Rossis. While Trever had married Willow Heart, the heiress to the Heart Brothel, and had many children with her, he had also married a human girl, an elf girl, as well as had a child with Rhyan and another demon. Trever was too much of liability with a grand total of 20 kids running around both in and out of the city.
About 70 years ago, tensions had gotten to an all time high between the two families. The obvious split in the city put everyone on edge. Though the TCPD did their best, war eventually broke out and claimed victims on both sides. It had started with Elaine Valentine. Her body was found in the middle of town, sparking the all out war that hung in the air. It had lasted for 5 years, both Mafias losing important members and family members. In the end, Leo Prince, the Chief of Police, had ended the wars, taking Joshua Rossi and Kalense Valentine to jail. Rachael had fled the city at the time, and Travis had finally succumbed to a broken heart after all these years of his wife being gone. In the end, Kalense Valentine had inherited his family's mafia and Ebony Rossi from her family; pulling what was left of the groups from the ashes that were left. While the states of the two most important families of the city were nowhere near what they were before the war started, things finally started to level out as they focused on the more business end of what their families did rather than returning to full out mafias with the police hot on their trails.
