Rico began working as an gigolo but he later became New York's pimping boss and got famous and revered in the criminal underworld and was called in to watch over any high profile deals. He is a very violent pervert and sadomasochist as he states he had strangled two "mad dog killers" who, after an argument, played a "Kung Fu fightin' video game" instead of actually fighting and killing one another. After one deal in Chicago went bad, the Punchinello family bailed him out and he wished for a chance to pay them back. This came with the order to kill the mayor of New York City, though he never got to complete this job.
