Alex ‘Olli’ Remzi is born in 1985. Some say to a German father and a Turkish mother. According to legend, Remzi began his career as a weapons dealer in his native Turkey. His legendary persona is born when rival Hungarian gangsters invade his house while he is away. Once his family is buried, Remzi massacres the Hungarian Mafia, killing them, their families, their friends, and even people who owe them money. He then goes underground, never again doing business in person, operating instead through underlings who don't know who they are really working for.
