Riccardo Raffaele was born and raised in Marsala, Sicily. He was the son of Dr. Donato Raffaele, a Doctor, and Donato's wife Dr. Calogera Raffaele (nee Endrizzi). Since Riccardo's parents were doctors, that meant he lived comfortably in a modest house in Marsala. By the time Riccardo had reached the age of eighteen, he had made up his mind to leave Sicily and head to America. He was on the next boat to America. He didn't care where the boat took him, as long as it took him to America.
It turned out, the boat was headed to New York City. Once in New York City, Riccardo found refuge with some people in Little Italy, and they in turn put him in contact with Sicilian heroin traffickers in Canada, after Riccardo told them he needed some money. Riccardo traveled to Niagra Falls, and met up with the Sicilian traffickers. They gave him the heroin and he returned to New York City and gave it to others to sell. Once it was sold, he recieved the cash and her returned to Niagra Falls and gave it to the Sicilian traffickers, and he recieved his cut. This continued for nine years, until it was revealed that one of Riccardo's contacts in Little Italy was actually a Caporegime with the Graziano Crime Family.
The Caporegime inducted Riccardo into the family, at the age of twenty-seven. Riccardo worked for the Sicilians for another two years, and by that time was already on the FBI's list of suspected heroin importers. In reality, Riccardo was one of the biggest drug traffickers in the Country, and he had made millions in those eleven years. Three months before Riccardo's thirtieth birthday, his Caporegime was stabbed to death in Little Italy by a drunken mugger. Taking over as Caporegime, was his right hand man...Riccardo Raffaele.
