Shank, real name Robert Torres, was a former enforcer of a Mexican gang, before being betrayed by his former brothers. He swore to have revenge by murdering everyone responsible for the death of his girlfriend.


Shank was originally an enforcer of a crime family led by Caesar. Alongside his friend Falcone, he collected payments from those who didn't want to pay. On one of the missions, however, Shank was instructed to kill the mayor and Caesar sent his personal bodyguard to assist with the mission. Right after their job was done, Caesar's bodyguard was about to kill Shank's girlfriend, for the sole reason of "no witnesses". Enrages, Shank jumped onto the bodyguard and murdered him, the news of which quickly got to Caesar himself. Assuming treachery, the criminal leader sent some of his men after Robert, who succesfully tracked him down and murdered his girlfriend, before burning his house down and leaving him to die in the fire.
