Paulie Fortunato

Paulie Fortunato

Paul Fortunato ("Fat Paulie") is a major character in the novels "The Godfather Returns" and "The Godfather's Revenge".

Paul Fortunato was a devoted "caporegime" to Don Emilio Barzini and succeeded him in 1955. He supported the move to heroin and is a friend of Ozzie Altobello. He was considered the closest thing the Corleones had to an enemy after the Five Families War.

He was one of the people that did not support the Corleones creating a separate regime for the drug money, and never liked Michael Corleone or any of his family members. He also had strong ties to several Dons and crime figures hostile to the Corleone family, such as Vincent Forlenza, Louie Russo and Hyman Roth. He was also a strong supporter of the business deals in Cuba.

It was not made clear whether or not he supported the assassination of President James Shea but is more likely. He is still the closest thing the Corleones have to an enemy on the Commission.
