Character history

Ray Machowski was born and raised in Liberty City and at some point became a police officer with the Liberty City Police Department. Machowski was a law abiding police officer who was teamed with corrupt officer Leon McAffrey, who twice introduced Machowski to Toni Cipriani. Machowski attempted to arrest Cipriani and was reluctant to work with criminal elements. At some point prior to 2001 this attitude changed, with Machowski beginning to work for Asuka and Kenji Kasen, the co-leaders of the Yakuza, as an informant.

Asuka later suggests that he begin to employ Claude, with Machowski having Claude prove himself by driving to various locations across Staunton Island to drop off his pay from the Yakuza. Machowski later employs Claude out of Belleville Park, having him kill former partner turned informant Leon McAffrey, help Phil Cassidy defend his business, collect and destroy some evidence, kill Ray's current partner and to kill Leon McAffrey (who survived Claude's previous attempts to kill him).

During this time Machowski is being investigated by both internal affairs due to his links to the Yakuza and the CIA due to his attempts to stop the Colombian Cartel and their production of the drug SPANK. He later hires Claude to drive him to the city airport, Francis International Airport, to escape arrest by the CIA, successfully catching his flight and fleeing the city.
