Bio:

Luciano Giunnio was born into the family of a relatively successful Florentine merchant. At 15, Luciano was sent to apprentice to a physician (Danielle’s character’s father). Luciano’s father’s wealth came from his import business.

The family’s trouble began when the profits from the business began to shrink. The ships were not arriving with as much cargo as planned. Luciano’s father was the victim of a system of organized crime in which sailors and dockworkers would be paid to steal much of the cargo and deliver it elsewhere. Luciano’s father began investigating the problem, and enlisted the help of the podesto (I think this is what you called the chief of police). Long story short, the podesto was a part of the Albizzi faction, and the Albizzi faction was responsible for the crimes. After discovering the truth, Luciano’s father attempted to defy Albizzi. This led to the Giunnio family being locked in their home in the middle of the night while Albizzi’s men set the house on fire. The sixteen year old Luciano escaped, but was badly injured. He hid aboard a docked ship and passed out.

When he awoke, the ship had left Florence. A few days later, the ship was attacked by pirates and Luciano was taken prisoner. He was sold into slavery in Asia minor. He was purchased by a Silk Road merchant, who took him back home to China where he changed hands again.

He was eventually put into the service of a local Magistrate’s chief advisor. This advisor was a martial artist, an alchemist and a philosopher. He taught Luciano many things; alchemy, kung fu, and meditation – to help calm the young man’s desire for vengeance. He became like a son to the old man. Years passed and eventually the old man became ill. When he died, Luciano was free.

He was partly convinced by the old man’s peaceful philosophy that he should not seek vengeance, but he cannot quench his desire to see justice done to those who wronged him. Eleven years after the fire that killed his family, Luciano set out on a journey home to Florence to plot his revenge. He approached Cosimo, a known enemy of the Albizzis. He has entered into Cosimo’s service with the hope that he will find an opportunity to gain vengeance.
