At the end of the game, it's revealed that Salvatore's elderly uncle was the Don of the Sicilian Mafia and agrees to go back to Sicily. In Grand Theft Auto III, Salvatore at first helps Claude with work in Portland, but beause of his distrustful nature, from being betrayed by Carl Johnson, who robbed his bank in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, betrays Claude by sending him to a car rigged with explosives (unknown to Claude), but Maria sends a pager telling Claude that it's a trap. Maria and Claude meet up with co-leader of the Yakuza, Asuka Kasen. She tells Claude to kill Salvatore to show he has broken ties with the Leone Mafia, leading to the Leone mafia to be destroyed.
