The Mordinos were once the most powerful crime family in New Reno. At first, the Mordinos exploited tourists with hallucinogenic peyote cacti for the "Reno Experience". The family quickly gained an edge in the form of an obnoxious, albeit brilliant boy scientist name Myron. Myron is responsible for creating and refining jet. The highly addictive chem became their bread and butter, greatly expanding their influence in New Reno in response to the waves of jet addicts that flooded into the city. The Mordinos fell from power once Myron died from a stabbing in the Den and a cure to jet addiction was discovered in Vault City. The family's assets would slowly be absorbed into the other families of New Reno until the name "Mordino" was soon forgotten.
