It can take many years to become a made member in the mafia, but In order to become a "Made Man" which is a fully initiated member in the Mafia, you have to commit a murder or in some cases many murders. You have to be 100% Italian. You have to be a tough, ruthless, smart, astute, street wise guy. You must be a good money-maker for the Mafia. Most of all you have to be sponsored by two high-ranking "made" members in the Mafia. If you are chosen to become a member of the Mafia, you have to go through an initiation ceremony in which you pledge an oath to the mafia’s code of secrecy, loyalty, brotherhood and silence, called Omerta. This essentially means that you’re putting the Mafia before all else, including God and your own family, and you will do anything and everything for the Mafia, and you will protect and kill for your fellow mobster's at any time, and most importantly it means that you will be in the Mafia for life, and the only way out is death, and that if you ever get arrested, you vow never to rat on the organization or any of your fellow mobster's. If you break the Mafia's code of silence then that will earn you a death sentence. With this ritual behind you, you can now be welcomed into a new “family,” and from this point on you’re officially a "Made Man", "mafiosi", or "wise guy" and you're considered to be untouchable, a made member in the Mafia, non member, civilian, or even a cop can not kill a made man, touch you, or even put a hand on you, if anybody harms a made man in any way without permission from the Commission, then they will be killed, and in some cases the mafia will take revenge on their families as well.
If you have a beef with someone outside of the Mafia, you can go to the either the Commission or the men above you to seek guidance and protection. In return for this support, you must agree to cough up a certain percentage of your criminal earnings to these higher-ranking members..
