- "Your next job is taped under the phone..."
- ―Mr. Black
Very little is known about Mr. Black or his background. The Vice City Bureau of Investigation believe he is running a hitman business and may have a connection to money laundering.
Events of GTA Vice City
At some time either during or prior to 1986, Mr. Black started working with Leo Teal. Teal was later killed by Tommy Vercetti, who took Teal's cellphone. Mr. Black later gave missions to Tommy, seemingly unaware of Teal's death.

Note: Mr. Black's missions are not required to complete the story, but are required for 100% completion.
- The names of Mr. Black and Leo Teal are possible references to the 1992 film Reservoir Dogs, as their surnames are both colors and the bank robbers in the film used colors as codenames.
- As a point of irony, the Hawaiian shirt in Tommy Vercetti's default outfit is teal in color, making 'Mr. Teal' a fitting codename for him.
