The Franchetti Mafia (member)
|Real World information|
Nino Pirelli was a mobster appearing in The Darkness comics series.
Nino Pirelli bumps into Jackie while latter is walking down a street. He reveals that many high ranking mobsters didn't approve of him killing Frankie Franchetti. He also reveals that Frankie's cousin from Philadelphia, Paulie, has come to the city and wants to have a word with him. For a brief second, Nino's face becomes horribly mutilated to Jackie before coming back to normal. Pirelli offers to set up a meeting with Paulie, but Jackie rejects the offer.
Later that day, Pirelli visits Paulie and reveals about Jackie's return. Paulie then orders him to set up a meeting with Jackie.
Next day, Pirelli brags to other mobsters how he sold out Jackie to Paulie. Jackie then crashes through the door and shoot Pirelli in the face, instantly killing him.
While at first being very friendly, it reality Pirelli is loyal only to Franchetti Mafia and has no cons in betraying Jackie to Paulie.
