Vinnie is a bounty hunter and the primary protagonist of the Sift Heads series.
Vinnie was born an only child in Florence, into a family as simple as the next.At two years old his father was killed in a gunfight between two rival clans in Italy. Wanting to forget this tragic incident his mother decided to leave Europe and move to America to start a new life, in that same year he committed his first murder when he shot his cat who had killed Vinnie's bear Mobo. A few years later he choked another child with a toy car as payback for stealing Vinnies GT 500 toy car. Seven years later he murdered his maths teacher so he didn't have to go to school. As a child vinnie decorated his room with hardcore pornograhy, a real AK47 and a japenese katana sword which states in japenese "blossom stem, if found please return to kiro or else!". Vinnie got his first taste of money by conning the cons themselves in the streets of Chicago. What was a simple hobby to him quickly turned into a profession. His name would spread very fast among locals as being the best bounty hunter in the area and soon the best in the world. Obviously, such notoriety would bring him many contracts, lots of money and women, but also his share of enemies. Although, this did not intimidate our star, who eliminated all who dared to oppose him. And all of a sudden, among all this violence, a woman entered his life. Vinnie was surprised that she could withstand such blood baths, but behold she could not withstand his charm. And since this day Shorty has been rolling by Vinnie’s side, and not just in the bedroom. A contract hit that turned sour forced Vinnie to meet one of his biggest adversaries: Kiro, an ex-member of the Yakuza, thirsty for vengeance (see: Sift Renegade 1, Sift Heads 5 and Sift Renegade 2). Following several heated battles Vinnie proposed an alternative to this quarrel and let Kiro join his team.
Being the leader of a group of Assassins and named the best bounty hunter of all America, Vinnie can boast about being the toughest around! No one has ever got past him. And being able to manipulate any gun with ease it’s no surprise he has been accused of some of the worst carnage.
