Tomy Vercetti, is a member of the Liberty City Mafia. He had been released from prison in 1986, he had killed eleven people in prison for fifteen years. Sonny Forelli is Tommy’s old boss, a concern that Tommy’s presence in Liberty City will increase tension and bring unwanted attention to his organization’s criminal activities.
To prevent this, Sonny seems to be promoting Tommy and sending him to Vice City under the guard of Mafia lawyer Ken Rosenberg to act as their buyer and for a series of cocaine deals.
During Tommy’s deal with Vance’s criminal family at Pier, an ambush by an unknown party resulted in the death of Tommy’s Guard and the Cocaine Dealer, Victor Vance (Grand Theft main character: Auto Vice City). Tommy had escaped with his life and also lost both Forelli and cocaine money.
