Petrela was born in Albania and moved to America in 1990 following the breakup of FR Yugoslavia. Petrela became an associate of the Albanians, a street gang from The Bronx and Brooklyn. Petrela became bitter enemies with Roman Bellic, a compulsive gambler who did not pay off his debts to the Albanians. Petrela's arm was dislocated by Niko Bellic when he attacked Bellic at his taxi depot with a knife, and he cornered him in Brownsville's Projects later on.
Niko Bellic beat up Kalem Vulaj and Bledar Morina, two of Dardan's enforcers, and Dardan fled in his car. Petrela was chased to a warehouse on Brighton Beach, and he tried to flee up the stairs to the warehouse on foot, but was killed by Niko Bellic, who punched him on the top floor, and he fell backwards, breaking the windows and falling into the water to his death.
