'''The Godfather''' is an Italian-American mobster, the head of [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/New_York_City New York City]'s [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Punchinello_crime_family Punchinello crime family], and the godfather of New York's crime underworld at 2003.

===Background===
Nearly nothing is known of The Godfather's history or identity.
+
Not much is known about Angelo's backstory. It is unknown when he got leadership due to a family connection. [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Max_Payne Max Payne] leaves [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/New_York_City_Police_Department NYPD] and starts working for the DEA after his family gets slaughtered by what at the time appeared to be [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Valkyr Valkyr] junkies. Payne becomes an undercover agent and infiltrates the [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Punchinello_crime_family Punchinello crime family]which was long suspected of trafficking Valkyr.
  +
  +
Angelo Punchinello's death was the most horrible loss to the Punchinello crime family. His death severely weakened the crime family in 2001, along with the deaths of Lupino and the Trio earlier. [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Godfather?redlink=1&veaction=edit&flow=create-page-article-redlink the Godfather] took control over the family, with Gognitti becoming an underboss.<sup id="cite_ref-1">[https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Angelo_Punchinello#cite_note-1 [2]]</sup>
  +
  +
Vinnie begins a gang war against the [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Russian_Mob Russian Mob] and its leader, [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Vladimir_Lem Vladimir Lem], his mortal enemy. Gognitti and his men attack [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Vodka Vodka], Lem's restaurant, vowing to finish off the Russian mobster, but fails due to Max's involvement, leading him to escape the scene. His affiliate mob boss, the "Godfather," informs him that he will no longer send help or support him in the Mob war, stating that Gognitti is going against his ideas. Gognitti eventually loses all his men to Lem's Cleaners. Lem eventually decides to finish off the underboss.
   
After the loss of Angelo Punchinello and most of his subordinates devastated the Punchinello crime family in 2001, The Godfather took over operations through unknown means. He promoted small-time player Vinnie Gognitti to an Underboss out of necessity due to their lack of resources.
 
   
In 2003, Vinnie ignited (or exacerbated) a war with the [[Russian Mob]] and [[Vladimir Lem]], suffering devastating losses and failures as a result. The Godfather contacted Vinnie, accusing him of going against his wishes, and denied Vinnie's request for support, effectively cutting him out of the Punchinello family and abandoning Vinnie to his fate.

The Godfather is not seen at any point in the series. His only on-screen depiction is the voice message he leaves on Vinnie Gognitti's answering machine during [[Dearest of All My Friends]] in ''[[Max Payne 2]].''

It is never seen throughout the game, you can only hear your voice on an answering machine during [https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Dearest_of_All_My_Friends Dearest of All My Friends] in ''[https://maxpayne.wikia.com/wiki/Max_Payne_2 Max Payne 2]''.
