Alcazar mob family
The Alcazar mob family was a fictional mob organization on the ABC soap opera General Hospital headed by Luís Alcazar, and later by his brother Lorenzo Alcazar. They were a rival of the Corinthos-Morgan mob family.
The Alcazar crime family originated in South America under the command of Luís Alcazar. In 1998, Brenda Barrett's mother drove her car off the side of a cliff with Brenda inside and Brenda and her mother were presumed dead. However, Brenda survived and was saved in the water by Luís. Four years later after holding Brenda captive all that time, Luís came to Port Charles with the sole intention of getting rid of Sonny Corinthos and Jasper Jacks due to his obsession with Brenda. Luís wreaked havoc all over the city and his quest to get rid of Sonny and Jax resulted in the death of Alexis Davis's sister Kristina Cassadine, and the kidnapping of Felicia Jones and her children.
He hired hitman Roy DiLucca to take out Sonny, but what he didn't know is that Roy and Sonny had already come up with a plan beforehand to fake Sonny's death at Roy's hand. They fooled Luís into thinking that Sonny was dead so with a false sense of security he moved on to getting rid of Jax. He tried several times to kill Jax and severely injured him, but before he could kill him Sonny showed up and shot Luís. Luís was then put on trial for the attempted murder of Sonny, Jax, and Zander Smith and the murder of Kristina Cassadine but the charges were dropped because he had friends in high places.
Jason and Sonny began discussing how to take Luís out once and for all. When Alcazar crashed a party at the Quartermaine mansion held in Brenda's honor, he got really drunk. When he left the party, he left in his limo, driven by Jason. Jason was making moves to take Luís out that night, but Sonny called the hit off at the last minute when Jason's brother A.J. started to get too suspicious. Several people threatened to kill Alcazar and he got in confrontations with several people that night, including Brenda, but he was killed by Alexis when she paid him a visit and pushed him off the railing of his fourteen story balcony. Jason and Brenda while innocent were put on trial for his murder, but they were cleared when Skye Quartermaine remembered seeing Alexis in Luís's room. When Alexis went to trial she faked having DID and was able to get out of the murder charges.
Lorenzo Alcazar was an International Arms Dealer, an intelligent and powerful man with ties to mob families and high-ranking government agencies that made him a formidable force in the town of Port Charles. Before he joined the family business, he was a History professor at Oxford University. After Lorenzo's wife Sophie Germaine was tragically killed in a village by rebels while Lorenzo was helping his older brother Luís out after a deal went wrong, Lorenzo blamed himself for what happened to Sophie, and abandoned his life in England to become part of the Alcazar family business. Years later he came to Port Charles to avenge the death of his brother Luís. He learned that Alexis was responsible for Luís' death but he did not go after her because she had no affiliation with the mob. Instead he blamed Sonny since Sonny was the reason why his brother came to Port Charles in the first place. Lorenzo became a thorn in Sonny's side and a formidable enemy for the Corinthos-Morgan organization. For years he tormented Sonny professionally by trying to steal his territory and personally by getting involved with Sonny's wife Carly Corinthos and eventually marrying her.
The war between Lorenzo and the Corinthos crime family expanded when Sonny and Jason took shipments Alcazar was delivering to his government handlers to secure his incarcerated son Diego's freedom, despite knowing Lorenzo only entered into the life to keep his son safe from the Ruiz mob family. Despite Lorenzo's attempts to protect his son, Diego was presumably killed in 2006 by Sam McCall in a shoot-out between Alcazar's men and Jason, who was on the run with Sam when Ric Lansing and Lorenzo hired Damien Spinelli to cybernetically frame Sam for a crime she didn't commit. The death of his son left Lorenzo heartbroken and determined to make sure his daughter with Skye, Lila Rae would never suffer the same fate as Diego, due to the business.
He decided at that point to leave the organization. However after Lorenzo was shot in the head, he suffered temporary amnesia which caused him to act uncharacteristically and instigate trouble with Sonny. Sonny decided to finally deal with Lorenzo, and with the aid of Skye who wanted Lorenzo out of her life, Sonny and Jason set up a plan to take Lorenzo out. Skye let Jason into their home and he killed Alcazar. The aftermath of his death went on for months and Jason went on trial for his murder, but eventually got off due to help from international criminal Jerry Jacks and Carly. Alcazar's murder trial also brought up speculations that he may still be alive and this fabricated evidence is what cleared Jason during the trial, but in the end, Jerry confirmed that all the "evidence" they used to show that Alcazar wasn't really dead was doctored and fake.
In 2008 it was revealed that Lorenzo's son Diego wasn't really dead and he returned to Port Charles wanting revenge on Jason whom he blamed for his father's death as well as revenge on every single person he deemed responsible for his family's death. He began terrorizing women in town by sending them text messages and then strangling them to death. Leticia Juarez , Michael's long time nanny was his first victim, but the intended target had been Carly. The pattern of Diego's attacks caused him to become known as the Text Message Killer. He terrorized many women and out of revenge killed Jason's sister Emily Quartermaine at her engagement party to Nikolas Cassadine and later Georgie Jones, to which he later regretted as her sister Maxie Jones was his intended target.
The TMK finally reveals himself to Sam before he kidnaps her and takes her to the place where Jason dumped his father's body intending to kill her. When the car goes partially over a bridge, he escapes and Sam is saved by Lucky Spencer before the car goes over. He flees to the warehouse where Sam was believed to have killed him year earlier. After a confrontation with Nikolas who wanted revenge for Emily's death, he tried to get away, but he ends up falling off of the catwalk and hangs himself to death. After this the Alcazar presence became non-existent in Port Charles. Many mob organizations began vying for the valuable Alcazar water front piers that Skye owned as the controller of all of Alcazar's money and estates, but she ended up selling the piers to Ric Lansing before she left town with her daughter.
The Balkan's mob family
Theo Hoffman arrived in Port Charles in 2010 wanting revenge against Brenda Barrett for the death of his son Aleksander Janáček. When Theo first arrived in Port Charles he posed as a patient at General Hospital that was suffering from a severe illness, but tests proved that nothing was wrong with Theo and he was eventually diagnosed with a psychological condition called hypochondria by Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake. After ending the ruse with the hospital, he goes to Diane Miller wanting to join her law firm Mason, Petrovich, and Miller. He was hired and soon given a wrongful death lawsuit that had been filed against Brenda and Dante Falconeri. He used his position as Brenda's attorney to get closer to her and exact his revenge.
Theo had been behind the whole entire lawsuit and it was just a part of his plan for revenge. Brenda dated Aleksander in the past but after finding out his connections with the mob and trafficking she left him and fled to New York where Dante became her bodyguard. Brenda and Dante were not aware of their mutual connection to Sonny at the time and while in New York, Brenda found out that she was pregnant. Aleksander became obsessed with Brenda and followed her to New York. After stalking her, he ended up in a confrontation with Dante and he shot and killed Aleksander. He then covered up the crime by dumping Aleksander's body in a swamp and telling Brenda that no one would ever find out what happened.
Theo wanted Brenda to pay for Aleksander's death. He finally made his move on Brenda's wedding day to Sonny Corinthos and everyone found out that Theo was really the international criminal named The Balkan. After the wedding he had a bomb planted in Sonny and Brenda's limo. He then kidnapped and drugged Sam Morgan due to her resemblance to Brenda and put her in the limo. Brenda got into the limo and right before it exploded she was taken out of the limo and kidnapped. Sonny was devastated thinking that Brenda had died in the same way that his first wife Lily had.
When the body was recovered from the car they found that it had been Sam in the limo and not Brenda, devastating Jason, but luckily due to the bomb-proofing in the limo, Sam survived and was taken to the hospital. Jason went with Sam to the hospital and Sonny turned his attention to finding Brenda. Theo took Brenda to a cave compound and demanded to know the whereabouts of his grandson. Brenda believed that she had a miscarriage in her seventh month of pregnancy and told him so, but Theo would not believe her.
During this time it was also revealed that Suzanne Stanwyck, Brenda's long time friend and the director of her charity, the Alliance to Save Exploited Children was really Theo's wife and just as eager to avenge her son Aleksander's death as Theo was. Her whole plan for getting close to Brenda had been for revenge and to get her hands on her grandson because she knew that Brenda had been pregnant and that her son was still alive. What Brenda had thought to be a miscarriage due to a fever, had really been Suzanne drugging her so that she could induce her labor early and take the baby. After interrogating Brenda in the cave, Theo learned that Suzanne had known about the pregnancy and interrogated her. However Suzanne explained to Theo that she didn't want to add anymore sorrow to him after losing Aleksander and Theo seemed partially satisfied with the answer, until he learned that Suzanne had been with Brenda during her pregnancy and he became convinced that Suzanne had taken the baby away so that Theo would never know him.
Sonny, Jason, and Dante manage to track Theo down to the cave compound and they rescue Brenda. Theo uses Suzanne as a human shield and manages to get away while Jason and Dante chase after him. Sonny rushes Brenda to a hospital because when Theo learned that Sonny was close to finding them, he injected Brenda with a deadly neuro-toxin intended to kill her before making his escape. Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Patrick Drake, a successful antidote was made and Brenda recovered. Theo then turned his attention to finding his grandson and in the process tried to kill Suzanne but due to her connections with some of his men she survived. Jason also began chasing after Theo wanting revenge for what he did to Sam. He confronted the Trujillo crime family, who they had a truce with, because they had facilitated Theo's stay in Port Charles. Rudy Trujillo told Jason that Johnny Zacchara had been the one to plant the bomb in the limo explosion that hurt Sam and Jason confronted Johnny. Meanwhile Theo had gotten closer to his grandson's location. He found him but before he could meet his grandson, Suzanne killed Theo by slitting his throat. She then put into motion a plan that would keep Brenda from her son and allow Suzanne to raise him.
Suzanne takes Lucian, a decoy son to Brenda and convinces Brenda that Lucian is her son, so that she can move to Switzerland with Brenda's real son Alec Scott. Sonny is weary of Suzanne and her story when Suzanne reveals the truth about what really happened the night of Brenda's supposed miscarriage, Brenda angrily screams at her and kicks her out. Brenda bonds with Lucian while Suzanne makes plans for her and Alec to leave the country. Sonny remains skeptical and encourages Brenda to get a DNA test on Lucian to confirm Suzanne's story.
Brenda finally agrees to the DNA test and knowing this act would prove her story wrong, Suzanne kidnaps Lucian devastating Brenda. Sonny and Dante finally manage to track Suzanne down to Texas and they take Carly Corinthos with them to bring Brenda's son home. While in Texas they learn that Lucian was the decoy and Alec was in fact Brenda's real son. Sonny and Dante catch up with Suzanne and confront her while Carly tends to Alec. Soon the ordeal is over and they return to Port Charles and Brenda is reunited with her real son Alec. She confronts Suzanne about her actions one last time before Suzanne is put in prison for the kidnapping.

Ruiz mob family
The Ruiz family arrived in Port Charles, New York in 2005. Hector Ruiz was originally head of the family, however when his son, Javier, was shot and killed by rival mobster Jason Morgan, Hector refused to retaliate. In turn, Hector's second son Manny, killed him and took over the organization. Manny also became fixated on Jason's girlfriend Sam McCall, stalking her at every opportunity. Ultimately, Manny died in 2006 when Jason threw him off the roof of General Hospital.
After Manny's death, a man who looked exactly like him came to town; he even had identical tattoos. Sam was afraid it was Manny; that he wasn't really dead. It was revealed however that it was Manny's identical twin brother Mateo, who got away from the mob and became a Catholic priest. He eventually left town in 2007 and hasn't been heard from since.
Scully mob family
The Scully mob family was a fictional mob organization on the ABC soap opera General Hospital originally headed by Joe Scully, who was responsible for pulling Sonny Corinthos into organized crime. It was most recently headed by Joe Scully, Jr. before his death in 2012.
Sonny Corinthos grew up in Bensonhurst with his mother and stepfather. His stepfather was abusive and Sonny left home at sixteen. He met Joe Scully, who took him in and taught him the business. Joe groomed Sonny into a mobster, while Joe's son Joe Scully, Jr. grew jealous of Sonny's relationship with his father. One day, Sonny returned home to visit his mother and found that Deke had beaten her very badly. He confided in Joe, and Joe had him killed.
Joe sent Joe Jr. to Atlantic City to run The Sea Breeze strip club he owned. One of the strippers there was Theresa, the sister of then-FBI Agent John McBain. John tried to get Theresa to quit her job at the club, but she ended up dead. Sonny was found by the police standing over her body with a gun. Sonny, however, claims that Joe Jr. had actually killed Theresa and Joe Sr. had Sonny take the fall for it, while he sent Joe Jr. to New Orleans. Joe Jr. claims that Sonny did indeed kill Theresa.
In 1995, Joe, now in Port Charles, causes problems for Sonny. Sonny, who has always thought of Joe as a father-figure, now realizes that he has betrayed him and is no longer on the same side as him. Lucy Coe is working with Sonny and Luke Spencer to scam Joe, and Joe kidnaps Lucy. Luke, Sonny, and Damian Smith save her, but Joe fires his gun at Sonny. He misses, however, and hits Sonny's father Mike instead. Sonny, in return, fires his gun and shoots Joe, killing him.
In 2012, Sonny's girlfriend Connie Falconeri tells him that Joe Jr. had raped her and got her pregnant when she was 17. Meanwhile, John McBain blames Sonny for his sister's death, but Sonny tells John that Joe Jr. was the one who killed Theresa, not him. John goes to New Orleans to find Joe Jr., and Sonny sends his right hand man Jason Morgan there to find him as well. Jason ends up bringing Joe Jr. back to Port Charles.
Sonny ties Joe Jr. up in his coffee warehouse and is about to kill him when John McBain comes in with the police and has Joe Jr. arrested for Theresa's murder. Joe Jr. is then extradited to Atlantic City and put in jail. Joe Jr. tells his son Trey Mitchell (aka Joey III) that he is innocent of the murder and that Sonny is actually the one who is guilty. He also tells him that Sonny took his inheritance from his father--money, power, and the business. He instructs his son to get close to Sonny's daughter Kristina and marry her so that they can have access to everything they lost to Sonny. Later, Joe Jr. kidnaps Kristina and tries to kill her so that his son Trey will inherit everything since he is Kristina's husband (and they had funneled all of Sonny's assets to Kristina). Trey, however, saves Kristina when he shoots his father. Joe Jr. then goes on the run from the police. It is later revealed that Joe is working for a man who appears to be Duke Lavery, but is actually Cesar Faison in disguise. In October 2012, Jason Morgan shots Joe Jr. in self defense; and Faison, disguised as Lavery, later tries to shoot him again, but Joe runs away. Joe Jr. later dies from his injuries.
Trujillo mob family
In March, Jason confronted the Trujillo crime family, who they had a truce with, because they had facilitated Theo's stay in Port Charles. He met with Old Man Trujillo and found out the Trujillos referred Johnny to Theo.
In May, Anthony told Jason that the hit woman who killed Brandon told him she was hired by Old Man Trujillo. Anthony pretended to lose track of the conversation. Jason reminded him they were talking about Trujillo. Anthony said that Trujillo was using Michael and Abby to pit the Corinthos and Zacchara families against each other. Trujillo hoped this would start a mob war when Sonny went after the Zaccharas for trying to frame Abby for Brandon’s murder.
In July, Jason assigns Spinelli (in his Jackal P.I. persona) to keep an eye on Luzetta’s Bakery to keep Spinelli distracted. Jason says there’s another crime family who are even more dangerous than the Zaccharas in town. They are called the Trujillos. Jason suspects the bakery is being used as a front.
Later Spinelli sees Johnny with a mysterious package leaving the bakery and suspects him of working with the Trujillos.
In August, Jason tells Sonny that the agreement with the Trujillos is holding. Sonny expects Old Man Trujillo to double cross them with Anthony. Jason says the man just wants to be left alone. Sonny thinks Trujillo wants Sonny and Anthony to attack each other and then he will move in.
Sonny tells Jason to make sure that Anthony isn’t working with Old Man Trujillo and that Jason will stop any shipments that are landing. Sonny doesn’t want to use the warehouse because he is worried Anthony will sabotage it.
Later Sonny accuses Johnny of running a drug operation. Johnny refuses to answer. Sonny infers that by denying any involvement with the Trujillos drug ring, that means Johnny is saying that Anthony is behind the whole operation. Sonny will have to deal with Anthony.
In September, Johnny meets Joey’s partner J.T. in an alley at Pier 14. J.T. was expecting Joey to show up. As Johnny just killed Joey he says Joey will likely be late. J.T. doesn’t want any part of what went on between Johnny and Joey. Johnny tells J.T. that he works for Johnny now and will do what Johnny says or he will die.
Johnny wants the details about the other men from Pentonville (Joey and Darryl) who were involved in the bakery scheme. J.T. is worried that Anthony will kill him if he talks but he admits that Anthony is behind the whole plan. Johnny also wants to know the setup. J.T. explains that they are hiding drugs in the flour at Luzetta’s Bakery. Specifically the bags of flour with stars where the apostrophes should be in the word “Luzetta’s”.
There is also a boat with uncut drugs in the harbor they can't get to and a retread at the old packaging house on Pier 14. Rudy Trujillo is the contact. Johnny wants J.T. to call Rudy and arrange a meeting. Before Rudy arrives, Johnny gives J.T. a gun for protection. Johnny calls Rudy’s name and forces J.T. to shoot Rudy. Rudy shoots back and hits J.T. in the abdomen. Johnny tells a dying J.T. that he lied when he told J.T. that everything would be okay.
Later Lucky tells Mac that J.T. and Rudy’s bodies were found at the packaging plant on Pier 14. Lucky and Mac both think it is a little too convenient and was likely a setup. Johnny goes to Anthony and tells him he cleaned up his mess. Joey, J.T., and Rudy are dead. He made it appear that someone wanted to silence J.T. and Rudy before they started talking. He planned to frame Sonny by putting drugs from the boat in the harbor into the Corinthos-Morgan coffee warehouse.
