Stan Manarello the son of the Head boss in the Manarello Mafia, was born in Italy. Shortly after Stan was born he's father sent him to Springfield, Illinois. While growing up his uncle taught him everything he needed to know about the Manarello family and its mafia. His uncle taught him how to get answers out of people. Stan had a small clique growing up. He never had to do the dirty work unless he needed answers from someone. Everyone in Stan's clique respected him. No one ever would have thought of turning their back on him. After Stan's uncle thought he had learned enough he sent him to Chernarus where he would meet his cousins to start spreading the Manarello ways. Stan's uncle bought him the ticket to fly over. Shortly after he arrived to Chernarus is when the outbreak started. He didn't know what to do nor where to go. All he knew was he had family there and no Manarello gets left for dead.
