Catalina was the leader of the Colombian Cartel during the latter part of 2001 in Liberty City, succeeding an un-named man killed by Mike. She and her right hand man Miguel increased the Cartel's efforts in manufacturing and distributing the drug SPANK, which included using a freighter docked in Portland Harbor as a factory and reaching an agreement with the Triads and the Uptown Yardies to sell SPANK through noodle stands in Portland Island and around Staunton Island respectively. They also come to know Leone Family secrets through Curly Bob, a SPANK addicted bar tender working at Luigi's Sex Club 7, a Leone front. The Cartel under Catalina also begin to put increasing pressure on media mogul Donald Love, kidnapping an old oreintal gentleman. The Cartel's activities, however, are continously thwarted by Claude, who kills their Leone informant, destroys their SPANK factory freighter, kills a number of Yardie drug pushers and destroys a Cartel front, The Kappa Coffee House, which was selling SPANK on Staunton Island. Catalina later kidnaps Maria Latore and kills both Asuka Kasen and former ally Miguel (who had been tortured for information by Asuka and Maria) and leaves a ransom note. She leads Claude into an ambush, which he escapes from, and later tracks her down to the Cochrane Dam, killing her with a rocket launcher as she hovered above in a helicopter.
Catalina also appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

He later has Claude kill a number of Leone Family mobsters with an ice cream van, kill a number of Triads with a flamethrower and to collect stolen volumes of Donkey Does Dallas for XXXMags. He is also known to be involved in a gang war with the Uptown Yardies after derogatory remarks made about Queen Lizzy.

Salvatore Leone
Salvatore Leone was the Don of the Leone Family between the mid-1980s and October 2001. He led the gang as they increased their interests on Portland Island following the death of Forelli Family Don Sonny Forelli. In 1992 he agrees to give Johnny Sindacco, of the rival Sindacco Family, $5 million for a one-third share of Caligula's Palace (along with the Forelli's). Salvatore, however, quickly decides to get his money back and hires Carl Johnson to stop a Forelli hit squad and later perform a hit against the Forelli's. Salvatore, however, later angrily phones Johnson after he and the Triads perform a heist at Caligula's Palace. An angry Salvatore, with his new girlfriend (and by 1998 wife) Maria Latore, returns to Liberty City. In 1998, with the help of Toni Cipriani, he launches a gang war with the Forelli and Sinadcco Families and is later forced to attack the Sicilian Mafia, Diablos and Triads, after the three gangs established themselves in the city. Salvatore is later forced to flee to Staunton Island and is then arrested, having Toni step up the attacks by killing Paulie Sindacco (Don of the Sindacco Family), whilst Toni later destroying Fort Staunton (a Forelli Family strong hold). After Salvatore is released, he and Toni chase down and kill Massimo Torini of the Sicilian Mafia, before making peace with Salvatore's uncle, the Don of the Sicilian Mafia. Salvatore then begins to regret his conflicts with the Forelli and Sindacco families, realising that many new gangs have been able to move into the city and consolidate their position. Salvatore Leone continues to lead the Leone Family in 2001 and, not longer after being released from prison again, meets Claude and has him work against the Colombian Cartel, including killing their informant and then destroying a freighter being used to manufacture SPANK. Salvatore, paranoid following Carl Johnson's betrayal in 1992, betrays Claude and almost succeeds, although his wife Maria helps him escape to Staunton Island with Yakuza co-leader Asuka Kasen, who later has him return to Portland Island to kill Salvatore Leone as he left Luigi's Sex Club 7.
