THE SONNY CARACCIOLO ERA
Sonny Caracciolo was born in Brooklyn, New York on October 22nd, 1988. He is the son of Anthony Caracciolo, a business law specialist and Rosie Caracciolo (née Di Marzio), a history teacher. Anthony also had a son prior to Sonny's birth with a mistress from Los Santos called Elizabeth DeRose. From this union was born Jerome "Jerry" Caracciolo, the eldest sibling of Sonny who grew up in Los Santos, several miles away from the Caracciolo household. Several years later, Anthony and Rosie gave birth to the youngest member of the family named Jennifer who is a sophomore student at Notre Dame.
By the age of 18, Sonny Caracciolo got enrolled into a bachelor in economics at the Liberty Business School. His mathematical capabilities combined to great social skills drove him to major in finance and later pursue a masters degree in corporate finance and investment. The first step of Sonny's career was to work as a stock broker in Wall Street in which he was able to develop his analytical and negociation skills.
On June 2018, Arthur "Artie" Boteli, a food truck owner and childhood friend of Sonny renewed contact in order to tell him about the numerous business opportunities found in Los Santos and eventually convince him to come over. The lack of competition at the corporate level would give Sonny an opportunity to launch the first finance-oriented firm and give him a chance to become his own boss. The duo finally met in the city on June 2018 and the finance prospect became one of Boteli's closest associates after acquiring 30% of Artie's Hot Dogs.
Through the revenues made by the food trucks, Sonny was able to lease his first office and start the "Caracciolo Investment & Consulting, LLC.", a limited-liabilty company that gave him the legal authority to exert and earn on his consulting services.

During the days that followed Sonny's unexpected assassination, his father Anthony Caracciolo traveled to Los Santos in order to re-organize the firm. By that time, several employees have left the company following a news article was published, confirming Sonny's involvement in one of the Cosa Nostra's money laundering schemes. Francis Cavallo, a long-time employee of the Human Resources department who decided to keep his position at the C&A was appointed as the new chief executive officer according to Sonny's will. On the other hand, Anthony and Jerome became chairmen due to their status of main inheritors of the firm's shares.
It didn't take much time to see the less-impulsive Anthony and Jerome duo attract bigger investors and double the company's value on the market. Additionally, the Rustik's management was given to Dayton Wallace who was supposedly present on Sonny's murder incident. According to some sources in the IRS, the firm is still the subject of ongoing investigations regarding it's fast earning capabilities and sudden rise from a small-time consulting office to a huge public corporation. The main focus is supposedly brought unto the "sheet four", a simple accounting sheet that contains complicated symbols and codes that was developed by Sonny Caracciolo during his time at the head of the firm. The detectives believe that upon decoding the document, they will be able to resolve the mystery behind the side-revenues of the firm and consequently Sonny's faith.
