Mint A Mook
After the failed hit on her son Nicky, Mama Mook aka Strega Nonna went into her recipe book of magic and conjured up a spell to combat the five families. She added the special ingredients into the pot of sauce, took her magic ladle, stirred the pot, and shouted,“Shvacheeeeemmmm!” Lightning struck and Mama’s spell was cast. She created an army of ten thousand Mook mashups to fight the mob war and settle the score, once and for all!

Meet The Family
Coming of age in a changing Brokeland isn’t easy for a 15 year old girl, especially for one growing up in a family like the Mooks. Jenny Mook is the black sheep of an infamous (dis)organized crime family. She has aspirations of being a star— a star breakdancer, emcee, rock star, or actress. Jenny wants to get out of her neighborhood but also away from her crazy family, who are a cross between the Corleones and the Munsters.
As whimsical and dysfunctional as they are dangerous, they won’t admit their nefarious dealings to Jenny. The Mooks run the neighborhood and her life. They find themselves caught in the middle of an old school mob war and vindictive Mayor Mouliani. While Jenny is trying to start her own breakdancing crew, the heat is coming down on the Mooks.
After the death of her husband The Don (natural causes), Mama Mook a.k.a Strega Nonna a.k.a. Mama Meatball took charge. She is suspected of running the whole show all along. Don’t be fooled by Mama’s smile and charm- she can be very dangerous. Mama is known for her famous spicy meatballs, the recipe for which is strictly secret to the Mook family and the backbone of their successful restaurant. Mama possesses the power of witchcraft from the Old Country, which gives the Mook family an otherworldly edge in the streets of the real world.
Vito (“No nickname. Just Vito.”) Mook made his bones on the Brokeland streets with his older boss brother Nicky. Vito has always been more of a mama’s boy. He makes a mean sauce. You can catch him at his restaurant on Thursday hosting Karaoke Night, where he’s in charge of making the pizza and daily operations.
UNDER MAMA’S SPELL Vito, the hairy bastard, becomes a werewolf.
Nicky “The Fingaz” Mook, father to Jenny Mook. Nicky made his bones on the streets as a youngster running numbers out of the back of Brokeland Nail Salon. He got his name getting a manicure one day. The manicurist slipped with a rusty nail clipper, leaving Nicky’s middle finger with gangrene. Doctors had to remove the finger. The manicurist was never found. Nicky is known for his short temper. Street-smart and tough, he’s a real soldier’s street boss. Nicky rules with an iron fist. He prefers the Thompson Sub-machine gun, claiming it keeps him “old school”.
UNDER MAMA’S SPELL Nicky becomes a vampire, and just like an Italian Dracula, can turn into a bat.
Sally Bats is the trusted muscle of the Mook family. And with his lurching presence it’s no wonder. His virtuosity with his weapon of choice- the aluminum bat- is equaled by his musical instrument of choice: the violin. Sally actually got a scholarship to Juilliard for classical violin playing, but gave it up to pursue his dreams of bonebreaking. Besides these, his hobbies include cooking and synchronized swimming.
UNDER MAMA’S SPELL Sally become’s Frankenstein’s monster. And when he wields his violin, he channels operatic drama by supplying his own murderous theme music.
Izzy the Book
Izzy “The Book” is the Mook family’s accountant and counselor. Legend has it that Izzy’s great grandfather was accountant to Al Capone. Izzy has his hands in the fight game and also owns a few ponies. Once a year he takes a trip to Jamaica to judge the annual limbo contest at Club Hedonism.
Frankie the Fish
Frankie “The Fish” is a childhood buddy of Nicky and Vito Mook. Frankie works at the fish market (where else). He likes his ponies, booze, and broads. From his cheek to chin, Frankie sports a scar which he got by trying to inject steroids into a horse’s ass before a race. The horse got spooked and bucked Frankie fifteen feet.
UNDER MAMA’S SPELL “The Fish”, in true fish form, becomes the ginny gill man— the creature from the black lagoon.
Jenny Mook a.k.a. BELLA ONE a.k.a. Italian Ice is daughter of Nicky Mook. Jenny is a breakdancer, graffiti artist, MC, DJ, and pain in her father’s ass. Her goal is to start her very own breakdancing crew with her best friend Ty, and she holds dreams of breakdancing in the Olympics. The black sheep in a Mook family of kooks, Jenny is still trying to figure out if her family are mobsters or monsters.
Fly Ty (born Billy) a.k.a. Billy The Kid a.k.a FLY THAI is best friend to Jenny Mook. He’s a break-dancer, skateboarder, and Vice President of the Brooklyn Body Mechanics breaking crew. Ty is a wannabe juvenile delinquent even though he’s a good kid from a well to-do family. He has a crush on Jenny and a fascination with the infamous Mook family.
In the winter of 1981, a scrawny, Brooklyn-born twelve-year-old kid by the name of Michael McLeer hung from the beam of an elevated B train. Spray can in hand, sneaker against steel, he felt spraypaint adorn the surface of an MTA train car for the first time. When he wrote the name KAVES, he penned the beginning of a folklore that spanned New York City's restless, crumbling, hip-hop fueled 1980s and 90s.
Over the years, Kaves, a "Brooklyn boy who makes good", took his paintings from traincars to museums and galleries. He took hip-hop from the crackle of his boom box radio into the unwelcome lap of the neighborhood he loved, creating the pioneering rap/punk-rock group Lordz of Brooklyn. He has designed exclusive visuals for many major brands, including Audemars Piguet, Aston Martin, Jaguar, NIKE, Rockstar Games, WWE, and Adidas, as well as for world-renowned artists such as the Beastie Boys and Metallica. Kaves is also known for his tattoo work, acting, and filmmaking endeavors.
Throughout his career, Kaves has been a trailblazer in the graffiti, music, and fine art scenes. He aims to continue this tradition by bringing The Family Mooks to the blockchain, paving the way for artists to branch into the NFT space.
