- "Su bequero Scotch? Pre-war..."
- ―Bruno Tattaglia[src]
Bruno was the youngest son of Don Philip Tattaglia, head of one of New York's Five Families and owner of a nightclub. He considered men like his father to be things of the past, and was seeking a way to modernise his family. He had one older brother, John Tattaglia. He had studied at Fordham University and was considered to be well-educated.
Bruno later provided assistance to Sollozzo via his friendship to captain Mark McCluskey, who became Sollozzo's bodyguard, and later assisted them in attempting to finish off Don Vito. The attempt failed, and a furious Sonny Corleone lashed out, ordering his men to kill Bruno. Salvatore Tessio described the hit as occurring at "four o'clock this morning", at his home.
In the video gameEdit
- "You got no chance. You're a dead man, my friend."
- ―Bruno Tattaglia[src]
Bruno plays a role in the first game starting with Luca's death. Later on, Bruno had his men abduct Frankie Malone, and had them bring her to a church in Brooklyn where Bruno murdered her and incurred the wrath of her boyfriend Aldo Trapani, a Corleone soldato. At this time, Bruno had recently become the family underboss after the murder of his brother Johnny.
Bruno arrived at the funeral with his loyal bodyguard Massimo and other loyal soldiers prepared for an attack, and engaged Trapani in a shootout. Trapani was victorious, wounding Tattaglia, who continued to taunt him until he was eventually flung into the cremation oven. Bruno's demise struck a blow to the Tattaglia family, who later retaliated by shooting Sonny Corleone at the Jones Beach Causeway.
Bruno later makes a small cameo appearance at the start of the second game, shown wielding a tommy gun along with a Tattaglia thug while Dominic recaps the events from the first game (which would imply Bruno was active in Tattaglia attacks on Corleone businesses). Later, it is revealed that one made man Dominic kills once worked for Bruno before his death.
Personality and traitsEdit
As the youngest of the Tattaglias, Bruno was eager to make his mark in the world, often overshadowed by his elder brother John. He was cunning and resourceful, but also had a sadistic side, and admitted enjoying the killing of Frankie Malone.
