Roy Zito is a character in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is the thirty-five year old underboss of the Gambetti Family, a role he took over when Sammy Bottino went into hiding. Zito runs a number of Gambetti owned dry cleaners throughout Liberty City that specialize in removing forensic evidence. Fiercely loyal to his Don; rumor has it that when Jon Gravelli was facing kidney failure Zito offered him his kidney. Gravelli refused the offer but Zito countered by removing his own kidney with a knife and delivering it to Gravelli in a bucket of ice. He is most likely to be the successor to Gravelli. Tony Prince mentions that he knows from "personal experience" that Roy Zito is a closeted homosexual, although if asked he would say Tony spiked his drink.[1]
