Alexandre Rodrigues
Alexandre Rodrigues (Buscapé - Rocket)
What should have been swift revenge turned into an all out war. The City of God was divided. You couldn't go from one section to the other, not even to visit a relative. The cops considered anyone living in the slum a hoodlum. People got used to living in Vietnam, and more and more volunteers signed up to die.
You need more than guts to be a good gangster, you need ideas.

Li'l Zé (Zé Pequeno)
Where do you want to take the shot? In the hand or in the foot?
Dadinho my penis, my name now is Li'l Zé,
