Livio met Wolfwood when they were growing up at the orphanage. Wolfwood came to Livio and asked him why was he so shy, but Livio didn't tell. With Wolfwood insisting more and more, the two finally became friends, but they became best friends after a incident at the orphanage. A small girl named Jasmine followed a dog on a rooftop, but she got scared and couldn't get down, Wolfwood tried to save her but failed when she fell off the roof and hurtled to the ground. Livio stepped in though and caught her, after which he and Wolfwood became very good friends. Later that same night, the dog was killed. Wolfwood, who was helping another kid go to the bathroom, saw Livio that night with a very fearsome expression on his face. When Livio woke up the next day, he had his hands covered in blood. Although others accused him of killing that dog, the caretaker of the orphanage found him innocent. Later that day Livio disappeared.
Months later, he found himself wandering in a no-name town. Due to exhaustion he tripped, and when he searched his pocket he found a piece of paper with the name "Razlo" written on it. He didn't know where it came from or from who, but he was too tired to pay much attention to it. Later some unsavory locals try to run him out of town. After getting beaten by them, he found another note, with written on it: "Kill those bastards, I'm really looking forward to it. Razlo." The letters continued to come, and he slowly started to give in more and more. A few weeks later he saw the men who'd beaten him. They immediately began beating him again, but then minutes later they hear a voice, the voice of Razlo. Razlo took control of Livio and killed the men in mere seconds, then told Livio that this was a way to punish him for forgetting he existed. Razlo then took Livio to a place where they were needed, the organization known as the Eye of Michael where both of them would be trained to become assassins.
Livio quickly rose through the ranks and soon became considered among the best assassins the Eye of Michael organization had ever made. He, Chapel the Evergreen, and his old friend Nicholas D. Wolfwood (who also joined the Eye of Michael) are considered to be three of the best. Although he looks like a adult, his age was enhanced due to experiments performed on him by the Eye of Michael to maximize his genetic potential. It seems that at some point in the past, Wolfwood grew fearful of Livio and tried to kill him. Wolfwood failed however, and he and Livio quickly became bitter enemies afterwards.
During his training with Chapel, Razlo killed nine of the best men of the Eye of Michael, and as punishment he was to be killed, but Chapel stepped in and shot himself for Razlo's crimes, begging the organization's council to let him live, because he had great value. This event made both Livio and Razlo come to greatly revere Chapel, and they became his most devout follower.

Powers & Abilities
Like all members of the Eye of Michael, Livio was given a serum that would give him a body like steel and advanced muscular mass, god-like sensory abilities, as well as borderline immortality. Livio can survive virtually any injury, even if someone shattered his skull into pieces. His marksmanship has been enhanced at such a level that he doesn't even need to look at a target to hit it. He can fire two machine guns at the same time with great expertise, and even three Punisher Crosses simultaneously. In addition to these abilities he has a third arm, a robotic one, which he uses to wield his third Punisher Cross. Only as Razlo does he wield three Punisher Crosses though. Razlo is also much more vicious than Livio, charging recklessly into battle, shooting wildly, and caring little for how injured he gets. Despite this recklessness though, Razlo is even more skilled and dangerous than Livio is.
