Jay was born into a mafia family who had ties to the drug trade in UK, US and Italy. they lived in Blackpool. They had Mules all over the UK but the one in Liverpool was on a large scale compare to others there... He knew of his heritage at a young age, His father, Johnny Manarello, was the founder of the Liverpool 'Trade'. They laundered money through a local popular mechanics shop. His father and mother passed in a home invasion, 100,000 Cash, 30,000 of Jewellery, and enough drugs to tranquillise everybody in the UK were stolen. Jay was passed into a orphanage and grew up with a family he despised. He caused trouble and fought alot. He got into selling drugs and he was naturally good at it due to his heritage and being around it at a young age. he refused to use any other name other than manarello. He was found through social media by Leo, they spoke alot, same age basically, he told them they were in trouble and had to rush to Southern Zagoria. Then they pulled the manarello's tight, starting a new founding family there, a closer family, of mobsters, dealers of all kinds, all built on trust and loyalty.
