Giuseppe Farina

A Paris based Mafia don whom Kanzaki requests to contract a hitman on Shins life. It is through Farina that Charlie is hired as an assassin to return to Area 88. In return Kanzaki would purchase airline parts from companies under Farinas control. Unfortunately for Kanzaki Farina and Maxwell Corporation the company with which Kanzaki dealt for the defective airbus both plan to use Kanzaki as a fall guy in a takeover of Yamato airlines. Farina appears briefly in the OAV but does not seem to have no other involvement beyond the assassination attempt. In the manga Farina has a much larger role and is later involved in supplying weapons to the AntiGovernment forces. He does not appear at all in the 2004 TV series. Source: Wikipedia
