Hi guys, it’s a character bio kind of day to me – that’s just the mood I’m in. However, pretty much all the other character bios are literally full of spoilers, so for now I’m only releasing the three Mancini kids. I’m not going to include characters who were introduced in generation 1 here, apart from Marta. She’s here because this is her as a young adult and the other was her as a child. If you want a look at the bios for generation 1, go here!

This post is a work in progress and is updated as generation 2 and extras come out. If you’re up to date on the story, you should be fine, otherwise, stay clear if you want to avoid spoilers. As was the case with the other bio page, this one looks like a nightmare in the reader, so I suggest reading it on the blog proper.

I hope you guys are having a great time and I’ll see you tomorrow for the next chapter.

Regina Mancini

Regina is the youngest child of Carlo and Vittoria Mancini and the only one of the three to take up the ‘family business’. She adores her father and looks up to him most of all people in the world.

She grew up with him and her siblings in Monte Vista but made regular visits to her mother’s cabin in Collesena from the time she started school. Her relationship with her mother has never been as close, since as long as she can remember, Vittoria has pretended to be their aunt Lucia.

Regina went to university briefly, but after little under a year, she was so dreadfully bored that she couldn’t take it anymore and she went home to join the gang. In the gang she has become the one expert to go to when dealing with art heists, this is both because she studied art history, and because she has a genuine love for fine art.

She’s generally temperamental and impulsive, but also fiercely protective of the ones she loves.

Giuliano Mancini

Giuliano is the oldest of Carlo and Vittoria’s biological children and the only boy. As opposed to his brash, loud, confident sister, he’s always been quiet, thoughtful, and a bit of a doormat. His sister used to get him into all kinds of trouble before he grew a bit more of a backbone.

He’s remained quiet, though, and he’s decided to not be in the family business. He loves maths and numbers more than anything and works as an accountant because of that passion.

He’s in a relationship with a childhood friend, Flora, and acts as a father to her son, Gabriele.

Personality-wise, he’s thoughtful, considerate, and very much a dork. He is always available to help those he loves.

Marta Zini Mancini

Marta is the daughter of Alberto and Tatiana Zini and was adopted by Carlo after her father died and she got out of Lucia Giocondo’s clutches.

Despite spending the latter half of her childhood in a safe, loving environment, she still suffers panic attacks and nightmares after the things she’s been through. She sees therapists regularly and is very mindful of not straining her mental capacities.

She works as a private detective, a job that is both exciting enough to keep her brain stimulated, but also boring enough that it doesn’t trigger her anxieties, since she mostly works with cases about cheating spouses.

In her spare time, she writes fanfics and through them processes some of her fears. When she has sleepless nights, she gets up and braids her long hair in complex braids – consequently she’s become pretty good with hairstyles and is usually the one to help her family when they need their hair styled for different events.

Vincente 'Enzo' Cavalcante VII

Vincente is the oldest son and heir of Vincente Cavalcante VI, a wealthy aristocrat who has a strong hold on the town of Collesena.
He was raised with a strict schedule, so even in the summer, all his days were occupied with lessons and classes with tutors.
He studied law at university and after his education he had plans to go back home to Collesena to practice as a lawyer and find a family-approved wife. However, after an incident in which an acquaintance of his died, he’s been blackmailed by Fabrizio Aiello. Aiello’s demands for a rare, sought-after painting has led Enzo to once again meeting with an old flame, Regina Mancini.

Carlotta Allegri

As a straight A student with a bright future ahead of her, nobody expected Carlotta to join Good Guys Inc. after school, but that’s exactly what happened.
She and Regina Mancini were in the same grade, and though they initially loathed each other, they eventually became good friends.
Carlotta has taken on a role in the gang that mirror’s Franco Bianchi, though with a bit of a narrower scope. She doesn’t have his wide network of contacts—yet—but relies instead on her senses and intuition to glean information about people and use it to her and the gang’s advantage. She’s a good people person, and she can nearly always charm information out of people. She’s one of the few who question Regina’s actions and always tries her best to keep her best friend’s feet firmly planted on the ground.

Lorenzo Sartore

Lorenzo is the elder child of the Sartore family and Vincente Cavalcante VII’s best friend since childhood. He belongs to a wealthy family like his best friend, but because he’s not old money, he’s never truly been a part of the wealthy set and never be. His infatuation with Rosalia Cavalcante has always been pointless, as she’ll never be allowed to marry into his family.
Because he’s not truly part of rich circles, he’s been a more relaxing and softening influence for Vincente—among other things, he’s the one who gave him the nickname Enzo. He’s also very protective of his friend, because he knows how bad things can get with Enzo’s father.

Rosalia Cavalcante

Rosalia is the youngest of Vincente Cavalcante VI and Georgette Desjardins’ children. Like her siblings she grew up in an environment strictly controlled by her father. Because of her influence and beauty, she’s been the subject of much infighting, as most unmarried men in the wealthy set wanted to marry her. She’s engaged to Fabrizio Aiello, though not of her own volition. He’s blackmailing her older brother, and because Lia is terrified of losing more family after her mother and brother left, she’s ready and willing to marry a man she doesn’t care for.
In her childhood, she was very fond of her brother’s best friend, Lorenzo, and later on the two of them became lovers in spite of her engagement.

Flora Agostini

Flora grew up with strict, religious parents who kicked her out when she became pregnant at the age of sixteen. Abandoned by the child’s father, Flora had no other choice but to get by as best as she could with the help of an aunt.
She knew and was fond of Giuliano Mancini when she was young, but because she was in a relationship at the time, nothing came of their attraction. The two eventually met again and through various circumstances they got together.
She’s still a woman of strong faith, though she’s relaxed a lot on the strict ideals she grew up with. She studies to be a therapist and aspires to help young women in the same type of situation she was in.

Gabriele Agostini

Gabriele is the son of Flora Agostini and her high school boyfriend. Until the age of three, he was raised by his mother alone and rarely saw other children; consequently he’s a little shy and awkward around others.
He never knew his biological father and considers Giuliano his dad. The rest of the Mancini clan have taken him in as well and to them he’s as much a part of the family as any biological nephews and grandsons would be.

Marco Leoni

Leoni is an art thief who’s active in Monte Vista and the surrounding areas. He’s not active in any gangs, and generally stays out of their way for fear of getting in trouble. He’s highly paranoid and hard to get a hold of—unless you’re a potential client.

Fabrizio Aiello

Fabrizio is the heir to the Aiello family, since his older brother was disinherited. He’s generally well regarded amongst most families as a very nice guy, though not with all.
He’s engaged to Rosalia Cavalcante due to blackmailing her and her older brother.

Doriano Montanari

Doriano is one of the younger of the Montanari children and undoubtably the most controversial figure of them all. He’s well known for his womanizing that causes abundant scandals and leads to his father having to clean up after him. He’s highly disliked amongst most, though he’s tolerated because of his father’s influence.
In his younger days, he’s had a relationship with Regina Mancini which ended poorly and resulted in him taking a legendary beating from her.

Leandra Antonini

Ms. Leandra Antonini is a widow and mother of five as well as an avid collector of art. She’s also a shrewd business woman, as evidenced by the fact that she’s doubled her late husband’s fortune since his passing. She’s not above using art thieves and gang connections to get hold of the most treasured pieces, and she’s smart enough to not be screwed over. She hired Regina Mancini to get a painting for her after she heard good about the young woman, though she’s not particularly fond of the young thief’s attitude.

To be continued…

    Same! I just looove reading people’s extras 😀 <3 I can't wait to share more <3 Thank you for your kind words 🙂

Ooh, more details~ love it 🙂 It’s sad that Marta has to tip-toe with what she does in her work/life so she doesn’t trigger her anxiety :/ but I found it amusing that she writes fanfics; she didn’t strike me as that type of gal, but it appears to be helpful for her, so that’s good – writing can be very therapeutic.
I feel you on the additional character info being spoilers, lol. That’s a major reason why I haven’t made one myself. It’s cool that yours shall be a work in progress, though. I’m expecting a lot of exciting developments then 😉

    NotJustaBook · July 7, 2018 at 10:01 am

    It’s a little sad for Marta, for sure. But to me it also shows some maturity – it’s always hard to balance that kind of thing and I imagine her pulling it off pretty well. She’s a funny one, for sure 😀 I can honestly imagine her writing really, really weird fanfics! Like alternate universe cross-over fics with very strange plots and dark twists!
    Yup! You can expect that as the new characters pop up, their bios will be pretty short to begin with and then I’ll fill in as the generation continues. I cut out a part of Gina’s for this, because it was spoilery. It’s a bit of work, but I still love doing these bios! 😀
    Thank you for reading and commenting <3
