Big John Vizcarra is a New York Police Officer who is familiar with Kissyman. He has a partner by the name of Tony Faulkner. When Tony warns Big John about an all-points bulletin that has been put out for him, Big John confronts Kissyman at The Heidelberg, a German eatery in Manhattan, New York.
Big John Vizcarra is described being a first generation Italian, having a black mustache and blue eyes that always looked crazy. He stands being 5ft. 9in. (1.75 meters) and approximately 160 pounds (72.57 kgs) and carried a Smith & Wesson Model 10 handgun. He earned his nickname because although he really wasn't that big physically, he was built like a middle weight fighter but delivered a hit like a heavy weight. On a personal note, it is known that Big John infrequently bathes, which leaves him smelling like sour milk.
Big John is the kind of person who resolves a dispute with violence. He is not above using his position as a police officer to intimidate people or to get away with murder - literally. According to Kissyman, Big John has knowledge of some type of Japanese fighting skill, supposedly karate, which combined with his heavy hitting capability, made Big John a lethal opponent.
He is further described as the kind of person who, when at a disadvantage, wants everything to sound like it was his idea. When threatening a person, Big John did not repeat his threats if he knew the person understood the circumstances and the stakes. This is because his reputation carried the understanding that either the job was done or the ramifications would involve the entire police department hunting the person down.
Between Big John and his partner Tony Faulkner, Big John is in charge. Despite, Tony being meaner than Big John, he was not smarter and knew it, so he let Big John run the show.
