Christopher is Carmela's nephew. He is Tony's protegé in the crime family and recently became a "made man." Tony has looked out for Christopher over the years, as he never had a father figure growing up (Christopher's actual father, Dickie, was a mob figure who was killed when Christopher was very young). Christopher now acts as Tony's lieutenant, issuing orders from Tony in order to protect Tony from potential racketeering charges.
However, Christopher has his share of problems. He is often violent and impulsive, frequently creating messes that he must extricate himself from. He also had problems with his usage of heroin, eventually being forced into rehab by Tony, his friends and his long-time girlfriend (and now fiancée), Adriana La Cerva.
Christopher also once tried his hand at screenwriting, but was eventually reined back in by Tony.
