All I see is red.
It consumes me.

I only have one purpose.
End him and take back what’s mine.
Love isn’t always clean, and wrath is the deadliest sin.

Unleashing my wrath on those responsible.

Death will reign.

I never thought wrath would find me again.
But you can’t run from it.
Not when wrath is the deadliest sin.

His second mistake is thinking
I won’t come for her.
Mine is letting wrath consume me
and believing I won’t have
to pay for my sins.

Envy has led to this.
I saw it coming, knew it wasinevitable.
We all did.
No one wanted to stop it.
Now, blood flows like a river in Chicago.
And the streets are only going to get bloodier.
A war that’s been brewing between the families has begun.
The first shots have already been fired.
The only question is…who will survive it?
It’s taken a lot to get here.
I’ve spilled blood—of my friends and my enemies.
Some might say the price to pay was too steep.
But that hasn’t stopped me.
The war for the city of Chicago still rages.
It will continue to, until everyone who stands in my way is six feet under.
Because envy endures.
And I will have it all.
No matter the cost.
Lust opened the door for me.
Now, I’ll build my empire on its back.
Because one thing I can always rely on is the weaknesses of my enemies.
Weakness of the flesh.
Of the soul.
Of the mind.
All I have to do is be the strongest…
and I’ll come out on top.
Where I belong.
The city of Chicago never saw me coming.
But now that I’ve arrived, I won’t back down for anything.
Not even the man who stirs the very thing in me that I prey on in others.
I’ll bring them all to their knees, but I’ll never drop to mine.
Some things are inevitable.
The sun rising and setting.
The tide rolling in and out along the shoreline.
Succumbing to sin.
No matter how hard we fight it, sin always creeps into our lives.
Now, it’s staring me right in the face.
In this job, hard decisions are inevitable.
Ones that cost lives and eat away at souls.
But there’s no use fighting it.
Sometimes embracing what’s coming is the only way to survive.
Even if it’s the very thing, the very person you’ve fought against for so long.
Because the war I’m smack dab in the middle of isn’t going to just end.
And I need to fuel it if I want to win.
You would think I’ve learned my
lesson by now.
That I wouldn’t repeat the mistakes
of the past.
That I wouldn’t commit the same sins.
But the crazy thing about sin is, sometimes, it seizes you before you even see it coming.
It blinds you to reason and logic.
Makes you weak where you were once strong and powerful.
That makes you vulnerable.
Especially in Chicago during this growing war between the families.
Everywhere I turn, a new enemy
lurks in the shadows.
I’ve done my best to protect those I love.
To keep them from getting caught
in the crossfire.
It hasn’t been enough.
And the only way to remedy it is to take lethal action.
I’ve been living a lie for so long…
I don’t even recognize the truth anymore.
It’s been twenty years of blood and deception.
Decades of pain and living under a
veil of darkness.
It blinded me from the truth.
What was right in front of me.
The thing I tried to forget and keep buried.
But now, it’s rising to the surface.
It threatens to destroy more than just my plans for Chicago.
This may also decimate my pride.
And it just might cost me my life.
Fighting for my life isn’t anything new.
It feels like I’ve been dodging bullets for as long as I’ve been breathing.
Sometimes, they strike.
While I’m no stranger to blood and pain, things have gone too far now.
Choices have been made.
Lines have been crossed and new ones drawn
Ones no one could have anticipated.
Love was never meant to be part of the equation.
But now, it isn’t just me and my own pride I need to defend.
We all have targets on our backs.
And with friends becoming enemies…
There isn’t anyone left to trust in this city.
Soon, Chicago will burn.
I just hope I can survive the inferno.
This showdown has been a long time coming.
Facing my enemies means facing my own past and my own weaknesses.
But I’ve grown stronger.
I’ve learned from my failures.
And I won’t lose again.
Not when the stakes are so high.
Chicago isn’t big enough for all of us.
That much is clear.
No matter the history that runs deep between the families.
The fake truces they’ve established are crumbling around us.
Soon, nothing but a pile of rubble and ashes will remain.
I welcome it.
Because I will rise from the destruction stronger.
I will command and rule this city.
The only other option is death.
I’ve been hiding for decades.
Watching and waiting.
Calling the shots while maintaining the ruse.
Only I haven’t been cowering in the shadows…
I’ve been in plain sight.
Veiled by the church and faith.
This collar gives me the perfect cover.
No one has ever suspected the truth.
Of who and what I really am.
But it’s time to step from behind the cloth and into the light.
Because Chicago is ripe for the taking.
The families are warring.
And now, I have an ally who will ensure my enemies will blow away in the wind this city is famous for with one little breath.
The truth may be shocking.
It may not be easy to accept.
But it’s the truth nonetheless.
Ugly and dark.
We’ve come to a point where keeping it buried only prolongs the inevitable.
And I’ve taken steps that mean there isn’t any turning back.
Blood will spill.
Enemies will fall.
Those who believe themselves to be safe will be square in my sights.
There isn’t anything anyone can do to stop it now.
Just as the end of times is coming…
So am I.
Now is my time.
Free from the shackles of my lies.
Exposed to those who would oppose me.
I’ve made all the right moves.
Aligned things perfectly to fall into place precisely.
Once my final plan is set in motion…
No one will be in a position to stop it.
Not even God himself.
I’ll pay for my sins when my time on this planet has ended.
But I’m prepared to do my penance.
And I’ll offer my enemies absolution before I pull the trigger.
It’s the least I can do before I take this city into my death grip.
People say the Devil once lived in Chicago…
They haven’t seen anything yet.
Since the day my life was ripped apart, I've only wanted two things...
Revenge against those who destroyed my family and to find what was taken from me.
Now that I've accomplished both...
A new enemy rises.
One intent on ripping away all I've worked for.
But a hail of bullets can't stop me or even slow me down.
The only thing that can is a feisty little blonde with a smart mouth and no common sense.
She has no idea what's she's stepped into.
How deeply she's now dug her own grave.
I can't let anything get in the way of my plans for Chicago.
My plans to take it all.
Not the other families.
And definitely not her.
All I wanted was to strike out on my own.
Build a new life.
Find a place where I wouldn't always been living in my brother's shadow.
Yet somehow, I've stepped directly into the middle of a war I want nothing to do with.
But I can't ignore the blood being spilt.
Can't turn a blind eye to someone in need.
Even when that someone is one of the most dangerous men in Chicago.
A man whose green eyes I could get lost in.
A man who wants my brother dead.
A man who will kill me when he finds out who I am.
I've committed every sin in the book.
Spent years killing and stealing and doing whatever it takes.
Anything to reach the top.
Damn the consequences to my soul.
I'll deal with those when I'm dead.
Now, my goal is within my reach.
So close, I can smell it.
Only one thing stands in my way.
The woman who also reawakened the heart I thought long-dead.
She's a complication I can't afford.
A problem to be eliminated.
But when the time comes to finally have it all...
It will mean losing something even more valuable.
It’s more than just the name on the door of one of my clubs.
It’s a way of life.
See what you want and take as much of it as you can.
Take it all.
All I’ve ever wanted is Chicago—to control and expand on the empire my family before me built.
To ensure the future of my bratva.
I had plans and clearly saw the path I would need to take to get to my final destination.
Until she walks in the door of the club.
Dark and mysterious, she screams danger.
But I can’t stay away.
Even when the city is awash with blood and enemies are waiting around every corner.
Bullets may fly.
But I’m not letting her walk away…
No matter how hard she might try.
Man was put here on the Earth to consume.
Food, drink, sex…
All of it.
And the more I have, the more I want.
But it comes at a price.
That price is your soul.
You can’t commit the sins I have and walk away unscathed.
Pain is inevitable.
And now that the newest revelations have rocked the five families…
Chicago will never be the same.
They’re so preoccupied that they’ll never see me coming.
Now is my time to strike.
I won’t let anyone—not even her—stop me.
In a world full of sinners, I’m only one.
The heads of each family have suffered and paid the price for their sins.
It was only a matter of time before I had to.
I just never imagined it would come down to this.
A single shot aimed right at the heart of everything we strive for.
One enemy intent on revenge that’s been years in the making.
Any plans we had disappeared the moment the truth was revealed.
Now, we all have a penance to pay.
The only question is, who will survive atoning for their sins…
Nine rings may not be enough in Hell to hold all of us.
