Character history

Joseph Daniel O'Toole is an American resident of Liberty City, a member of the Sindacco Family and the manager of Paulie's Revue Bar, named after Sindacco Family Don Paulie Sindacco. He was arrested, at an unknown time, for statutory rape, even though the girl he slept with was said to be 18, and was raped in prison because of that. He was also suspected by the FBI to be downloading child pornography, but was never arrested for it. O'Toole, having an Irish ancestry, is upset with Paulie Sindacco as he has yet to be "made" due to not being a full-blooded Italian. O'Toole then begins to work for the Leone Family and employs Toni Cipriani, after Cipriani kills some Sindacco mobsters at a construction site in Hepburn Heights, which O'Toole filmed to release later as a snuff film.

Cipriani first helps O'Toole by driving his van around the Red Light District to allow O'Toole to get his cut from his prostitutes and then informs him that the Liberty City Police Department are going to raid his club, allowing Cipriani to rescue Don Salvatore Leone. O'Toole continues to feed Cipriani information, allowing Cipriani to protect a Leone casino in St. Marks and then to destroy the Sindacco run 'Dolls' House casino.

Cipriani begins to work for Salvatore Leone and his wife, Maria Latore, but again works for O'Toole, firstly rescuing Salvatore after he was kidnapped from Paulie's Revue Bar and later protecting Salvatore when he personally goes to kill Sindacco mobsters at the club. O'Toole later has Cipriani follow Massimo Torini, a high ranking member of the Sicilian Mafia, who Salvatore correctly suspects is planning something in the city. Salvatore later decides to 'make' O'Toole and has Cipriani and Mickey Hamfists accompany him to the Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard, where O'Toole is killed by a shot to the back of the head, fired by Hamfists, who explains that O'Toole could not be trusted after turning against the Sindacco Family. Cipriani later disposes of his body, dumping the body and car into the sea.

Legacy

O'Toole's decision to work with the Leone Family results in a conflict between the Leone and Sindacco families and the Diablos, which is won by the Leone Family, allowing them to take control of the Red Light District. His former club is taken over again by Luigi Goterelli and is renamed Luigi's Sex Club 7. This decision also marks the beginning of the end to Sindacco interests on Portland Island and later Liberty City.

Trivia

  • The execution of Joseph Daniel O'Toole, being shot in the back of the head in a car in a secluded area whilst on an apparent assignment, is similar to the execution of Paulie Gatto in the novel and film The Godfather.
  • O'Toole also appears to take influence from Henry Hill in the film GoodFellas, both having Irish ancestry and not being made because of this.
  • A tombstone for O'Toole is placed at the Liberty City Cemetery, despite his body being disposed of in the sea.
  • In the mission Salvatore's Salvation, O'Toole suggests that his uncle is a paedophile.
  • In a beta screenshot of GTA Liberty City Stories, O'Toole is shown to wear purple glasses.
  • Since he also works for the Sindacco gang who watch JD constantly and who are the Leone enemies, you can't do his missions if you wear Leone's suit.
