Gino is most likely Italian. He is heavyset, has receding black hair, and has a large nose. He is seen wearing a white suit with a dark gray shirt and red tie.
Gino is a cold and hardened criminal. Lt. Dawson describes him and his men as "cop killers." When the boys are brought to Gino's office, he first considers using them to smuggle drugs, and when one of his assistants recognizes the boys as "cops," Gino has no problem with trying to shoot them.
Murphy and Jenkins were on Gino's payroll as bodyguards and worked at the Peppermint Hippo. During the police raid, Murphy turns on Gino and Jenkins killing them so he could keep the money for himself.
