In 1922, Benny Carbassa was killed when he was caught cheating at cards by Big Sal Fontana. Benny Carbassa is a short, stocky Immortal, who was involved in illicit distillation, bookmaking and extortion. Benny made it again and again, to overcome without a decent job with a mess after another. He claims to have known Capone, Lansky and Legs Diamond personally.
In 1938 Carbassa learned in the Coconut Lounge Seacouver, Duncan MacLeod know by chance and had to buy him a couple of drinks. He later met again MacLeod and learned from him what had happened in the Coconut Lounge: Sid Lankovsky, one of the owners, his own brother and MacLeod had shot and it held up as mutual murder. Benny was observed in 1938 by Louie Panozzo, the doorman of the Coconut Lounge.
In 1995, Carbassa again met the now very old Sid Lankovsky, who had become, under the name of Simon Long, a respected citizen. Not to be transported with cement shoes into the harbor, Carbass struck a deal with Sid: He would bring to him "the grandson of Duncan MacLeod," the 1938 murder of Sid knew well knew. Under a pretext he lured his old friend MacLeod in the harbor, and struck him down there. Sid's men tied up MacLeod and threw him in the water. Benny arrived to fish him out the next morning. Benny's plan might have worked, if not by chance to Simon Duncan Long was taken. The thought of a trick Carbassas, had him brought to him and then shot him personally. Later, when Duncan had solved the problem, Benny was ready to begin a new life. But he got a ticket to Chicago by Duncan paid - a bus ticket.
