Setting: Modern Italy
In the days when the royal families in Italy are but stories, Victoria is born a princess. A princess of Italy's mafia underworld. But by the age of 13, Falco fell. The Boss was dead along with all his consigliore in one night of ambush around the city. The Falco didn't simply fell, the family was eradicated. The princess was dead and never found, or gone missing to those remaining of the family that hoped.
Indeed she was taken into hiding by one of the only remaining consigliore of her father, Daniela, the only female consigliore of Falco. She was suppose to be death too, her car bombed. A female body was found but it was Daniela's identical twin, who was unfortunately riding her car that night. Victoria had always looked up to Daniela and found that the woman did not shed tears at the death of her family and Victoria thought she must not too. Daniela said it was okey but still Victoria didn't. She claimed that tears will not help them claim leverage. Daniela would have wanted to keep the princess safe but Victoria wanted to get back her father's ring by her own hands.
There are two strengths in a woman, Daniela said, something Victoria committed to memory. A true powerful woman will wield both and Daniela taught her both. Victoria was 19 when she emerged fully in Italy again. She entered a known university in Milan and was living under the name Gabrielle de Luca, an orphan that working part-time as a model. Daniela had orchestrated everything smoothly, Victoria was in a bus that was bombed on her 16th birthday, a true occurrence. She would have been introduced to the Italian mafia underworld at the age of 16, Daniela thought it was symbolic. She was sent to an orphanage after that. She was suppose to have lost her memories from the trauma and so she was called Gabrielle. There is no one called Daniela ever near her but the two kept contact. Constant contact. But Daniela does not exist in Italy anymore. After all, all Falco consigliore are supposedly dead. She remained in the shadows of the dark alleys and handsome cathedrals.
It's been six years since the Falco wipe-out and not one knows how Victoria Falco looked like anyway. Gabrielle stood 5'9" at the age of 19, a slender woman with beautiful green eyes that mirrors the depth of spring. Her hair is fiery red, fire around her delicate face that falls to her hips. She's among the few models that have substantial curves and flesh in her body. She took up Chemistry and is among the top in her class. Ever kind, innocent and gentle, no one would associate Gabrielle to the underworld of the Mafia world. With her tentative smile, her reserve façade gave her an air of mystery.
But she means to slither back to that world. She knew every name of the sons and daughters of every man and woman connected to the Brassili, the family that wiped out her own. Meeting Henry was the first step towards the old underworld again.
Henry can be a son or brother of one of the upper consigliore of the Brassili. Or the son of the boss, as long as he is connected to the Brassili. He's suppose to be older than her. A three to five years age gap. He can be student in the University too or a business man or a hotel owner. She can meet him in the university or in a party or in a modelling stint.
The idea is for her to wound up on the Brassili world, so there will be the need to play multiple characters but the main characters will be Gabrielle and Henry.
