La Cosa Nostra:
Though Carmine's crime family may not be nearly as powerful as it once was, and the entirety of Italian Mafia is a slim shadow of its former self when compared to the Mexican Cartels and Biker Gangs of the United states it remains one of the most powerful crime families in Gotham. Countless faceless mooks at various levels of the orginization. They hold influence in: Gun Running, Drug Production (Distribution, and sale), prostitution, Loan Sharking, Protection Rackets, Large Scale Insurance Fraud, Tax Fraud, Money Laundering, Intimidation, Ponzi Schemes, Counterfitting (Of jewlery and clothing as well as cars and money.), and automotive theft.

Weaknesses

Code of Honor:
Carmine lives by a strict code of ethics and does his part to enforce it on everyone who works under him under penalty of death. The code can best be described by the following quote:
"Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without police protection is both. It is as cowardly to betray an offender to justice, even though his offences be against yourself, as it is not to avenge an injury by violence. It is dastardly and contemptible in a wounded man to betray the name of his assailant, because if he recovers, he must naturally expect to take vengeance himself."
As such he refuses to go to the police even to exonerate himself or those close to him. He also holds firm that any debt dies with the one who incurred it.

The Old Ways:
Carmine holds firm to the old ways of the Mafia. The ancient days when they were protectors of the people, not the police who were so often corrupted beyond measure. He yearns for a return to the golden days of crime when his family was a major name in Italy. He genuinely wants to protect the people of Gotham by building them up into people who can defend themselves and their families to a point they no longer need the Mafia's protection. This dedication to the people puts him at odds with his own criminal syndicate and often leads to a butting of heads from the younger generation who don't see the appeal in his ethics.
