Character history


Before 2001

Luigi Goterelli was born in Liberty City and became a member of the Leone Family, eventually becoming a made man and opening his own business, Luigi's Sex Club 7 in the Red Light District of Portland Island. The club is seen during The Introduction, a prequel to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, showing the business had started sometime before that point in 1992. The death of Forelli Family Don Sonny Forelli, however, cleared the way for the Sindacco Family to enter the city and the family took the Red Light District over, renaming the building Paulie's Revue Bar. In 1998 Toni Cipriani and other Leone Family mobsters took control of the area from the Sindacco Family and the Diablos in a gang war. Shortly after this, the building is changed back to Luigi's Sex Club 7.


In 2001 he was accused by the Liberty Tree newspaper of being a pimp and, although he denied all the accusations, his lawyer appeared to confirm this accusation.[2] 8-Ball, an old friend of Luigi's, introduces Luigi to Claude, who is looking for work after escaping from a Liberty City Police Department convoy.[3] Luigi has Claude bring Misty back to the club from the hospital[4], before employing him on a more regular basis. Luigi has Claude kill a drug dealer, who is selling to his prostitutes, and steal his car[5], drive Misty to Joey's Garage[6], kill two rival pimps[7] and drive prostitutes to the Old School Hall for an LCPD party.[8] Claude and Luigi meet again when Claude drives him to Salvatore Leone's Gentlemen's Club for a meeting.[9] Whilst Luigi does not appear again, his business continues to appear throughout the rest of Grand Theft Auto III. He is mentioned for last time in the mission Sayonara Salvatore.
