The family's criminal empire is based in [[Alderney City]] and [[Algonquin]], mainly around the [[Little Italy]] area. They are apparently the weakest of the Five Families, going to the extent of hiring [[Albanians|Albanian thugs]] for extra muscle. Because of this, the Ancelottis are often the target of the [[Pegorino Family]] and their hired muscle, the [[Irish Mob]]. Despite the family's small size, they still appear to be able to intimidate people, judging by some of the in game dialogue. This could be due to things that they have done in the past that remain as of yet unexplained. They also start to work with the [[Faustin Family]], earning the wrath of the [[Gambetti Family]], who consider it an insult to work with foreign crime syndicates. After the events of the storylines, the family is ruined. Most of the reputed members have been murdered, apart from the boss, his daughter [[Gracie Ancelotti|Gracie]], and made man [[Rocco Pelosi|Rocco]]. ==Reputed members and associates== ===Known Members=== *[[Giovanni Ancelotti]]- Boss. *[[Charles Matteo]]- Underboss. *[[Anthony Spoleto]]- Caporegrime. *[[Frank Garone]]- Caporegrime. *[[Rocco Pelosi]]- Soldier. *[[Uncle Vince|Vince]]- Enforcer. ===Associates=== *[[Anthony Prince]]- Nightclub entrepreneur. *[[Luis Fernando Lopez]]- Anthony Prince's bodyguard and business partner. *[[Gracie Ancelotti]]- Giovanni's daughter. ==Notes== The Ancelotti family may be based on the [[wp:Colombo crime family|Colombo crime family]], the least influent family of New York, even though the Colombos are just based in Brooklyn and don't have a heavy influence in New Jersey. Like the Colombo family the Ancelottis are one of the smaller families of New York City. ==Trivia== *It's possible the family ended after the end of [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] because Rocco left the city after [[Departure Time]] and two Capos, the Underboss and several members were killed by Niko Bellic. *During the mission [[Chinese Takeout]], [[Gay Tony]] says they are "One of the most powerful mob families in the city", despite them ironically being the weakest. *It is possible that the buyers in the mission [[If the Price is Right]] are the Ancelottis since they are known to be in the business of dealing drugs with [[Dimitri Rascalov]] and the [[Russian Mafia]]. *The family's main/favorite car is the [[Cognoscenti]], seen driven more by them then anybody. {{Gangs}} {{GTA IV Gangs}} [[Category:Gangs]] [[Category:Cosa Nostra]] [[Category:Gangs in GTA IV]] [[Category:Gangs in The Lost and Damned]] [[Category:Gangs in The Ballad of Gay Tony]]

Lester Crest is a character in the HD Universe who appears as a supporting character in Grand Theft Auto V and as a main character in Grand Theft Auto Online. He is voiced by Jay Klaitz.

Character history

Lester Crest was, in 2004, an associate of Michael Townley, Trevor Philips and Bradley Snider, helping them with some of their heists in North Yankton as a black-hat computer hacker. He also knew Michael's wife Amanda and, presumably, used to masturbate while spying on her, as she asks Trevor when playing tennis if Lester is jacking off in the woods like in the "old times". However, when a heist is interupted by the FIB, the group is disbanded. Lester later moves to a bungalow in El Burro Heights, Los Santos and once again becomes involved in the city's criminal underworld, becoming knowledeable about those involved in heists. Lester also begins spying on his friends and reading their emails, and using the services of prostitute Kanya Suttikul after a wasting disease begins to limit his movements. Despite the wasting disease, by 2013 he is still capable of walking unaided, although with great difficulty, usually using a wheelchair or cane. He also begins to hack into the web cams of girls and women across the country and also lies about his age to interact with young girls, including Maurie Lelland who asks if he really is sixteen years old.

By 2013 he begins running the Darnell Bros. garment factory and employs Guadaloupe Romero. It can be presumed that either the conditions or pay is not brilliant, as two union representatives come looking for Lester while production in the factory is postponed in late 2013 'again' due to labour disputes. The police had also began looking into his actions and he employs an unnamed person to destroy several emergency services vehicles and later, on many occasions, hires the person to help himself and his criminal associates. Later in the year he once locates Michael De Santa, and the two begin to work together after Michael bugs a new phone created by Lifeinvader, which later kills Lifeinvader founder and CEO Jay Norris at a nationally televised press conference. Lester helps Michael plan a heist at Vangelico's Fine Jewelry in order to obtain the money to repay Martin Madrazo.

While planning to rob Vangelico's, he meets Franklin Clinton and hires him to perform several assassinations of corrupt people across the city in an attempt to make a profit and to introduce a greater deal of fairness. Those killed by Franklin include Betta Pharmaceuticals CEO Bret Lowrey, four corrupt jurors in a trial involving Redwood Cigarettes, Facade's Head of Development Jackson Skinner, venture capitalist Isaac Penny and criminal turned real estate developer Enzo Bonelli. Lester also invests heavily on the stock exchange during this period and, using the money gained, buys Franklin a new house in Vinewood Hills and arranges for his belongings to be moved. During this time he also becomes aware that old associate Trevor Philips had located Michael and refuses to become involved in Trevor's plan to steal cargo from a ship guarded by Merryweather Security Consulting mercenaries.

Michael, Trevor and Franklin then begin working for corrupt FIB agents Steve Haines, Dave Norton and Andreas Sanchez, who plan to use the three to perform a terrorist attack on the FIB building to acquire more money from the federal government. The trio, however, are forced to acquire the money themselves and Lester helps to plan the heist at the Blaine County Savings Bank, allowing the three to perform the terrorist attack after futher planning from Lester. Lester, during this time, also helps Franklin locate Michael after he was kidnapped by the Wei Cheng Triad in Ludendorff, North Yankton. Franklin again uses help from Lester when rescuing Lamar Davis after he was kidnapped by the Ballas, with Lester phoning Michael and Trevor to help Franklin. Lester is also central to their plans and the execution of the Union Depository heist, resulting in each participant gaining a large amount of money. Lester, with his share of the money, retires from the garment industry and plans to upgrade his bungalow.

Lester's role in the ending to GTA V depends on the players choice. If the player decides to kill Trevor, Lester splits sends a text message to both Michael and Franklin explaining that he cannot find Trevor and splits his share between them, advising them to keep it for him. If the player decides to kill Michael, Lester sends a text message to both Franklin and Trevor stating he hopes neither were involved in Michael's death and that he is sending Michael's share from the Union Depository heist to his family. If the player decides to spare both Trevor and Michael, Lester helps Franklin plan to lose the FIB and Merryweather mercenaries, and then locate their enemies Steve Haines, Stretch, Wei Cheng and Devin Weston.

Trivia

  • Lester warns Michael that working with Franklin could lead to his death, a reference to the mission The Time's Come ending to GTA V.
  • In GTA Online the player can contact Lester to aid them in various ways. A bounty can be placed on another player, the wanted level can be removed for $200 per star, removing the players blip from the radar for one minute, to locate hidden players and to locate a car, helicopter or plane.
  • The character Kelso (played by Tom Noonan) from the 1995 film Heat may be the inspiration for Lester. Both are physically disabled and are involved in the planning of heists rather than in their execution.
