Darby Sabini is an Italian gang leader from London, England. He is at war with Alfie Solomons and Thomas Shelby in Series 2.
Series 2 Edit
During Episode 2.1, Sabini and his men slice the inside of Thomas Shelby's cheek and brutally beat him for attacking his Eden Club. They plan to kill Thomas, but are interrupted by Inspector Campbell.
Sabini is presumably the one who sends for men to shoot Thomas at the horse auction in Episode 2.3, but Arthur ends up killing the assailants that were sent.
During Episode 2.4, Sabini has a meeting with Alfie Solomons. He apologizes for offending the Jews, and allows Alfie's bookies to go back to the Epsom races. They agree to peace between the Jews and the Italians and war against the Shelby family.
However, it is later revealed that Sabini broke his promise to Alfie Solomons, saying that his bookies could not come to Epsom. As a result, Alfie and Thomas end up back in an alliance—and back in business—by the end of Series 2.
Sabini still manages to get what he wants when members of The Red Right Hand captures Thomas Shelby at Epsom.
