    'kingpin' translation

    I'm looking around for the best translation for 'kingpin'. I'm not interested in bowling. The best slang definition I could find online for the version I'd like is this:

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/kingpin (very bottom of page)

    The drug kingpins are well protected.
    My uncle is the kingpin in this organization.
    Google has a few results, two or three of which seem to translate to kingpin. Could any of these be used in the example sentences above?

    ось
    кегля, стоящая в середине
    шкворень
    важное лицо
    главная фигура
    Thanks for looking!
