Vanessa Gonzalez was given a wonderful gift by a bad man. Her gift was Sam and she raised Sam as both his loving mother as well as an erstwhile father figure. Sam grew to be a young man that she was proud to have raised. Carmine Rostintoni was raised in a hostile world where the anger of his father ruled. Although raised by what he deemed a small man, Carmine had big dreams. Samuel Luscious took notice of Carmine's dreams of wealth and power then planted an idea that turned an afterschool business into a functioning network. Sam and Carmine were the first two disciples, the first two with the idea to make the rest of the disciples rich and powerful. Sam and Carmine were the first two disciples to see what nightmares awaited them once their dreams had been met.
