    The Shadow Cartel

    _____________________ _____________________ The Shadow Cartel was founded on the back of the collapse of The Chairmen. After losing access to the warehouse in which we used to make the majority of our income (due to the chairmen no long existing) the cartel had to figure out what they were going to stand for, what methods of income were most suitable for them and how to develop their ‘stamp’ on the city. Many members split off and went their separate ways, heading into other gangs such as the Narcos and The Vikings to name a few. After a few days of unrest, Tommy Vangore collected members from the factions, after recommendation from a few old members. Everyone wanted the people back together, but not the old crew ethos. There were a few issues that the majority of members did not agree with in the chairmen; constant neutrality with every gang was the main rule that frustrated most people. This was never beneficial, because not picking sides created a lot of enemies in the long run. People wouldn’t depend on the chairmen to turn up because of the lack of faith in them taking actions against anyone. The cartel formed making a lot of allies along with their fair share of enemies, but this was ideal, because they knew who you could trust, and they knew who had their back. The Shadow Cartel forged early alliances with La Familia after a loyal and devoted relationship from back in the days of the chairmen. When the cartel was set up in the early days, a lot of time was spent at the farms outside of the city, gathering small amounts of capital to allow for investment in small time guns and more vehicles. This allowed the progression and development of drug production. After the discovery of multiple drug labs popping up in the city, the cartel capitalised on this, being one of the first organisations to figure out the chemical recipes to common street drugs. Batch productions of drugs were put into place immediately. Due to the great organisation of its members, the cartel started to pull in a comfortable income from drug production. This was done with multiple contacts on the black market to sell the product to. Members of the cartel were able to easily smuggle drugs around the city by disguising their activities as farming based. Large green vans made the perfect disguise. It was easy to stash bags of cocaine behind all the wheat from the farms. Every member of the cartel was able to benefit from this, pulling in enough money to afford decent cars and houses for themselves. As new members were recruited, the production increased, but so did rival competition. Using it’s new-found income, the cartel realised it was highly important to arm themselves better and sought out a supply for heavier weaponry. This came in the form of an alliance with The Syndicate, who were able to provide the cartel with SMGs, Shotguns, AK’s and anything else they needed. These newfound guns also allowed the cartel to run a protection racket at all the chopshop locations - Extorting a small cut of chopped cars for the “safety” of the chopshop customers. During the time the cartel was making good money at the drug labs, they started to grow in reputation. Known for their brown attire, fair business-like attitude and respectable organisation and prowess, other city gangs had meetings with the cartel to discuss alliances. One reputable gang by the name of Bratva came into the fold and formed alliances with the cartel. At the time of the alliance, they were ran by Boris Putrin, a reputable Russian drug lord. As time progressed with bratva and Boris took flight out of the city for a while, one of his members, Jemal Brown (AKA Tbag) assumed control of bratva. Collectively, we had forged one of the largest and most unstoppable alliances the city had ever seen. 4 huge factions, allied together, effectively untouchable. Unfortunately, this didn’t end as a fairy tale with everyone getting rich and retiring in Vinewood. Since Bratva owned a warehouse and had access to gun shipments, they were able to bring in money, but with the majority of the city allied, income was slow. Due to either boredom or greed, events transpired in the city directly affecting our day to day life as the result of Jemal’s actions. Harassment from other smaller gangs on a daily basis became a regular occurrence. It didn’t take long for one of Jemal’s closest friend and ironically our closest ally to provide us with the information that Jemal had requested these gangs attack us to increase gun sales and shake things up in the city. When the cartel found out about this, multiple meetings were held as a next plan of action. Since the cartel doesn’t take lightly to betrayal, they organised a kidnapping. Executed to perfection, the kidnapping of Jemal and his killing were done over a 4 hour interrogation process as information was slowly extracted from him under gunpoint. (video of kidnapping will be attached further down in this post). Unfortunately, during the kidnapping process a couple of old members of the chairmen caught wind of what was going on and being good friends of Jemal, tracked down his location and wound up in the middle of everything. After the kidnapping and killing wrapped up, the witnesses were foolishly let go alive. This is where the next chapter of the cartels troubles began. A few days after the kidnapping, a crew known as Fog City crew (a group previously on good terms with the cartel) started aggressively hunting down and attacking cartel members on a regular basis. Revenge for Jemals death, information passed on from those witnesses we foolishly let go. Times became tough for the cartel during this period and cashflow slowed down, however, during this process, the already tight-knit bond of the cartel grew ever closer, propelling the cartel forward into the position it is in today. After the remnants of Fog City Crew were cleaned up from the city, the cartel looked fourth to new horizons and opportunities. _____________________ _____________________ Currently the cartel operates in a similar method to which it did before, only with more vigor and fortitude. Pulling in good cash from drug trafficking and enjoying daily trips to Tequila-la for a game of poker as well as back-street dice games for the more intense gamblers. Similarly, the cartel enjoy spending time at the pier, using fishing as a good bit of downtime between illegal activities. Usually fishing is accompanied by a beer or two as well. As avid car collectors, the cartel can seldom often be found at car meets within the city, showing off the rewards reaped from their hard work and endurance in the drug trade. In addition to this, The Shadow Cartel currently retain alliances with La Familia and The Syndicate in addition to a few other gangs/organisations that will not be disclosed. These huge alliances pave the way for some great house parties filled with drugs, girls and alcohol. _____________________ _____________________ As a mid tier organisation in terms of wealth and methods of income, the cartel is looking to push into the gun trafficking market and further develop drug production and protection racket activities. In the short term the cartel is looking to continue in its current methods, establish relationships with any new and up-coming gangs as well as solidify current relationships moving forwards. In the long term, the cartel is looking to run shipments of guns to warehouses and start supplying some friends who live down in the Jamestown area with firearms. In turn, pulling in more money for the cartel to push into the property market. This would allow us to further disguise our illegal activities and justify our increase in wealth to the government. In addition to this we are looking to slowly fill the remaining positions within the organisation with reliable, quality members who would contribute to the hard-working ethos that the cartel already has. _____________________ _____________________ o Continue successful drug trafficking o Continue chopshop extortion racket o Attain a warehouse o Ship guns to low-class gangs o Throw some big parties for networking purposes & of course FUN! _____________________ _____________________ The gang structure is an essential element in the success of the cartel. Bespoke in its design, the structure stems down from the Board of directors, whom are voted in by the rest of the cartel to help discuss crucial decisions within the organisation and to help guide everyone in the right direction. This allows even the newest members to feel that they can contribute to big group decisions. Without this dynamic, the bond and compatibility of the cartel would start to struggle, similarly to how so many other gangs in the city have risen and fallen. _____________________ _____________________ The cartel functions under an umbrella of primary pillars; Respect Everybody in the faction respects everybody else; regardless of rank, if you’re lucky enough to be invited in the Cartel, it’s because we respect you. Trust Due to the nature of the formation of this organisation, there’s a strong, unbreakable bond between the members, allowing a level of trust not seen in many organisations within the city. Loyalty All the members of the cartel realise that they represent the cartel, and in turn, make decisions based on how that reputation is affected by their choices. Commitment The cartel is like a family and every member would die for each other. This level of commitment is another great factor to their success. Professionalism Whether it’s business deals, kidnapping, murder, or relaxing and letting off steam, the Cartel maintain levels of professionalism at all times. Without these ideals, the Cartel would not be the success that it is today. _____________________ _____________________ You can’t simply ask to join the cartel. It doesn’t work like that. Invitations are exclusively reserved for people we deem acceptable to represent the group. We’ll let you know if you make the cut. _____________________ _____________________ The cartel is composed of a group of like-minded caring individuals who treat each other like family IC and OOC. We look after everyone and do our best to develop a great sense of roleplayer understanding and provide everyone with an excellent RP experience. We have no rules regarding activity, if you want to take a week away from ECRP to do IRL things, that’s more than ok, in fact we encourage people to look after their physical and mental wellbeing above everything else. We prefer members to have a great understanding of GOOD vs BAD roleplay and how to conduct yourself ICLY in-accordance to the rules. Members are guided throughout their RP experience to encourage good RP behaviour and helped if they step out of line. We don’t tolerate bullying in the cartel and have strict rules on how people are spoken to, regardless of rank, nobody should be made to feel sad/upset or feel their roleplay experience is damaged by others. We do our best to keep a healthy environment for everybody, after all, at the end of the day, the whole experience is about having fun. _____________________ More Pictures and videos coming soon!

    Insane Vice Lords ★ IVL ★

    It was just an average night in Los Santos, Stab City. Two brothers were out trying to make some quick cash, chopping a vehicle. A loose group of people showed up with guns and asked who they were affiliated with. As no satisfactory answer was provided, they proceeded to rob them and leave them to walk back to the city, without money but with much determination. It was on that long walk back to the city, that they decided to start this next chapter in their life. The group has grown to include many African-Americans from different walks of life. There are two very simple but strong driving forces for obtaining and keeping membership: Money and Protection. Brotherhood Loyalty Community A family made of many families. The Lords are the gang, hurting it is hurting themselves. Giving back to the black community. Secure alliance with one other organization that shares similar values to ours Obtain more members to better live up to our responsibilities Secure a strong presence in one or more narcotic production site Establish a common area where members can congregate IVLs aim to portray a realistic illegal organization, and as such do not believe in a strict, inflexible dress code and/or vehicle colors. Members will be free to dress as they please, the only requirement being that they must wear a specific bandana when repping the gang. All recruitment will be done in-character. If you feel like you character's goals and needs align with those of the faction, then find us in-game and roleplay with us. The faction strives to be a good force in the community, and as such may remove members for repeated rule breakings, ooc misconduct and failure to roleplay. We are more than happy to help new players accommodate to the server, however players that are set in their ways will not last long.

    The Lost MC

    The Lost Motorcycle Club is part of the 1% of bikers on the road that are outlaws. We specialize in drug dealing, arms trafficking, robbing, and taking what we want. We do not operate within the law. We proudly wear the eagle on our back letting others know that we ride free. "The Almighty forgives, The Lost don't." OUR HISTORY: With us we bring a great history that dates back to 1964 in Hanoi, North Vietnam. Eight brave Marines founded The Lost MC through their crave for drugs and bloodshed. The club is named "The Lost" in honor of those who served with the founding members that lost their lives in the war. We have many chapters throughout the world, including Liberty City, Los Santos, And Blaine County. The feuds and enemies these chapters have are enemies of every chapter. We have a war going on in Liberty City between The Lost and The Angels Of Death. Other enemies include the Triads, The Professionals, The Vagos, and others. Regardless of affiliation, we will continue to traffic both drugs and weapons, as we would rather die than succumb to those who pose resistance towards the club. LOCATIONS: We may be The Lost, be we are not unreasonable. We have many locations of which we work in cooperation with others. Stab City: People commonly know this as one of the many "Chop Shop" Locations, that operates outside of the Cletus family trailer, The Lost don't have any official connection to it. Everyone is welcome to come and chop cars if they so like, although, others must be wary of offering protection or being heavily armed on our property. This is our territory, so operate at your own risk. East Vinewood (Heavyflow) East Vinewood is where the club often meets for meetings, getting ready for assignments, or just hanging out. The Heavyflow dealership is rented out by a third party and again has no affiliation with The Lost. RANKS: The president oversees all operations of his chapter. He is the one that ensures the future of the club through coordinating deals, runs, hits, etc. This is the highest rank of the chapter. (The current club president for the Los Santos chapter is: Sam Bennett) The presidents right hand, the vice president, will do all the actions of the president without the final say so. In case of a presidents absence or a president being killed, the vice president would overtake all operations. The sergeant at arms is responsible for keeping everyone in line. He will ensure the safety of the clubs firearms and drugs, as well as carry out disciplinary action. The SGT at arms will be the one to strip a members patches if they are kicked out of the club, as well as ensure there is no stolen valor from those pretending to be in our club. The treasurer is responsible for all financial affairs regarding the club. He will ensure that the treasury is up to date and checked, as well as keep the rest of the higher ups notified of any suspicious activity regarding money. The road captain makes sure that any route the club takes is a safe one. That there are no ambushes, no law enforcement, and nothing to get in the way of where we ride. The road captain will also be the one to coordinate runs or shipments. Once you have hung around the club enough and administration has decided to allow you to ride around with us, you will earn the rank of prospect. Prospects are NOT to have any other patches than the prospect tab on the front of their cut. The back eagle and rocker patches are to be EARNED. You will do the clubs dirty work. Dispose of bodies, clean clubhouses, maintain bikes, etc. UNIFORMS: We proudly wear the eagle on our back of our cuts, symbolizing the freedom in which we operate. The top rocker displays our club name, and depending on the chapter, the bottom rocker will display what area you operate in. Members will often attach patches that pertain to the club to the cut, including the clubs initials, morale patches, or memorial patches. We also wear various shirts with the cut, as well as always wearing black pants and some time of boot. RELATIONSHIP WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT: Being that we deal in mostly illegal activities, our relationship with the LSPD is a strained one. We have a bit of an unspoken code where if they dont bother us, we wont bother them and vise versa. This does not mean we will punish the LSPD when we see fit, as we do have members that know the operations of the LSPD, and can very easily bring them back down when they get too cocky. As an MC, we vow not to ever work with any type of Law Enforcement, federal or local, as it is a betrayal of our honor, and it will not be tolerated. Anyone who snitches information about The Lost to the LSPD is only going to ensure that themselves and the officers involved will all go home in body bags. RECRUITMENT: In order for you to become a prospect, you need to be a hang around, the name of which implies, hang around members until they offer you prospect. CLUB RULES: (Not in any specific order) As a Lost member, the rules that you must follow are: Do not let anyone other than you or a club member touch/wear your cut Do not let anyone other than you or a club touch your ride without permission Do not allow anyone to talk negatively about the club Under no circumstance work with law enforcement Betray a brother through any means Attend club meetings if a full member Participate in club events Work with an alternative gang/club Do not ride ANYTHING other than an American made motorcycle (No crotch rockets) Respect and obey your higher ranked brother Retaliate to unfair or harmful things done to the club with nothing less than bloodshed. Follow through with anything the club meeting votes on Ride in rank from highest rank in the front to lowest in the back (Prospects will always be last) Wear the club uniform and wear it proudly Must be able to kill for the club Must be able to die for the club Once deceased, all personal belongings, such as vehicles or clothing, weaponry, including personal relationships (Girlfriends, wives, etc.) belong to the club ((OOC SECTION)) Members will be held to a high RP standard. This means performing worse when you are injured, falling off a bike and in some way being medically treated, damaging vehicles and taking them to mechanics to repair them instead of just relogging, etc. Members must be a known person around the server. We play this for fun, not to win, we will be more than happy to lose a shipment or a gunfight so long as the RP is good, cause that's what we are all here for. We work in full cooperation with other faction members and if there is an issue with out faction or one of our members we will sort it out immediately. MEDIA: Three members at the Stab City shooting range Members riding in ranks Back patches (More to be added soon)

    The Monroes

    The Monroes story begins with Narcos. Narcos was one of the biggest gangs in Los Santos. Weazel News even made a documentary about Narcos and their leader, Samo. Soon after Narcos split will call apart the leaders and elites created the Monroes. They learned that the real money is in the heavy gun sales, high class robberies, and extortion. They learned petty crimes are hard for such a small reward. They don’t believe in bloodshed for no reason. They believe that business is power and money brings power. The Monroes are a small but well experienced members. They don’t need numbers to win wars, they use money,businesses, extortion, and most importantly their experience to win. The members are wealthy living in mansions, driving high end cars, wearing nice and professional clothes. The Monroes are taking what the success they learned from Narcos and building on top of that to make an empire. They are tired of doing petty and unorganised crimes. They are still parties at heart though. Narcos had some of the largest parties ever seen in the city. The Monroes plan to keep this spirit and tradition into there bigger and lucrative business ventures. Currently the Monroes are looking for new business partners to further control the city. They use businesses to affect not only government officials personally, but to control other criminal organisations too. They are also looking to add a few well experienced and high class individuals to the family. Though they remain small we pack a powerful punch, and we can disrupt everything. Due to the lack of ability to import heavy weapon and tools, they have been buying and selling personal caches. They always find a way to get what their clients need. Power, we want absolute power over Los Santos. All of our future plans rely on power. There's a saying mo money mo power. We believe that's true, we want even more money and more power. We want to own all of the businesses so we can control pricing, and mobility in the town. If you’re stuck paying $100 per gallon you won’t be driving for very long. Gain control through any means of 50% of the civilian owned businesses. Be the biggest importer of illegal and heavy weapons. Extortion in the areas necessary Control the real estate and car markets Boss The boss, is head of the organisation, the boss is a director and has the power to order anything. The Boss makes all the important decisions, much like a CEO of a company would. Although each mob boss may run his outfit in a different way, they have one thing in common: they are greatly respected and widely feared by their subordinates. All of the men in his outfit pay him a tribute and universally feared. Consigliere The consigliere, or chief advisor, is the Boss' right-hand man. He plays one of the most important roles in a crime family. He is the close trusted friend and confidant of the family boss for strategic information and sound advice. The consigliere is meant to offer unbiased information based on what he sees as best for the family. He’s not supposed to factor emotional concerns, such as retaliation and blood feuds, into his decisions. Unlike the underboss the consigliere is not required to be a direct relative of the boss. Instead, he is chosen solely for his abilities and the amount of knowledge he possesses. Generally, only the boss and underboss have more authority than the consigliere in an organized crime family. Underboss The underboss, is second-in-command in the hierarchy of the Outfit. His level of authority varies from zip code to zip code, but he is ready to stand in for the boss at any given moment. A family may have six underbosses. Capo The captain of a crew. He heads a large crew of soldiers and can order them to do anything, such as murder, assault, bombing, witness intimidation, bribery, picking up cash, making deliveries and other criminal and organized crime activities. The captains report directly to a boss or underboss or overboss, who hands down the instructions. He ranks much higher in the hierarchy of the highest Mafia. He is also in charge of handling most money. Soldiers The lowest-ranking members of the hierarchy, the grunts of the organization who do the majority of the work, making deliveries, picking up cash, committing murder, assault, battery, witness intimidation, killing jurors, bribing Law Enforcement, Politicians, Government Officials, and Federal Agents, and generally sticking out their neck in the hope of making a name for themselves by demonstrating their loyalty to the organization, and protecting the organization at all costs. Associates Associates are not directly in the family. They consist of petrol station owners, gun store owners, and wealthy individuals. They help us control the town through means of goods and necessities. They are also people wanting to seek power and be free to do what they wish legal or illegal. Rules Follow and respect the hierarchy. No unnecessary bloodshed. No petty robberies or activities unless directed. Be Professional- Members are to be professional in all aspects. Not just in the way that they look but also in the way they carry themselves. Loyalty to the family - Family comes first no matter what, radio on ready if family needs help. Politics We will not be disrespected. If one of the family members is disrespected we all are. War is a last resort for us, it costs money and time. Useless bloodshed will not be tolerated. We are businessmen and women first, we make deals and negotiate. We supply to gangs, organizations, and the very wealthy. We are very classy and well organized family. We have a very specific uniform that must be worn at all times. Male members must wear a black suit with a red tie, black shoes and black skull masks. Female members must wear a black pants suit, accompanied by black heels with red undersoles. You must stick to all EclipseRP rules at all times or you will be removed without question. Everyone must use Discord to stay informed and receive the latest announcements. Knowing how to properly RP is a requirement to be in the family. Our goal is to bring quality RP to the criminal world through different means. This doesn’t mean you have to be the best RPer but having a good understanding is necessary. We want a win-win environment in our family. This means working towards compromises that are a win for everyone. We don’t tolerate bullying. This doesn’t mean that you can be thin skinned. You will need to be able to take a joke or two. Most importantly we want everyone to have fun, and enjoy their time interacting and being a Monroe

    Jamestown Hood Ballas

    For best reading experience it is recommended to play the following song while viewing the Ballas faction thread: It is believed that the Ballas gang formed at some point in the early 1960's in Los Santos in an era where gang activity and crime were rampant in the inner city community. Originally the group was formed in a joint effort to combat what the local African American population felt was an overbearing, racist, and corrupt Los Santos Police Department, after decades of government mandated reform the Ballas are now known for their more recent bloody and violent opposition to another local gang known as Grove Street Families. Although the reason for the war between the two gangs is widely unknown, the two gangs struggled over turfs from the early 1980's to the early 2000's however the train tracks now serve as a clear divide between Grove Street and Jamestown Street and the gang on gang violence has been dormant in the wake of movements such as Black Lives Matter. The Ballas are known in the street as being responsible for the death of Beverly Johnson mother of notorious Grove Street leaders Sweet and CJ in 1992 sparking an increase in gang on gang violence in the area. The Ballas have moved around throughout various areas of Los Santos in various groups known as sets. Some notoriously violent groups such as Rollin Heights Ballas, Temple Drive Ballas, Jefferson Ave Ballas, Front Yard Ballas, and others have made a name for themselves but have been eradicated by either gang war or incarceration. Presently there is only one active set of Ballas within Los Santos known as the Jamestown Hood Ballas. Around Jamestown gang life is not easy but it does come with its perks. Growing up in poverty in the Jamestown Community Projects offers low-income home for many of Los Santos poorest residents. Children and young teens are often exploited and used for criminal activity at a young age due to lenient sentencing for minors. The Ballas are known to exploit its younger members having members work the corners selling drugs, participate in robberies and theft, and being scapegoats or distractions in binds with police. Gang members participate in several activities such as playing dice in the alley ways behind Jamestown Street, involving themselves in the Hip-Hop and EDM scenes through music from artists such as Youn$ Dro, and showing off their low-rider vehicles and other cars accented with Ballas Purple. Members often conduct front jobs such as delivering for the postal service or simply live on welfare. If they represent the hood well, they may be put on payroll by the local gang leaders or be cut in on the more profitable illegal activities. Members of the Ballas have been known to have deep roots in the drug trade as well as arms trade, however they are known to be focused on profitability rather than bloodshed. Interaction between the Ballas and the local Los Santos Police Department have died down recently as gang violence also has plummeted in the area. Many believe this is due to modern day Los Santos street gangs focusing more on black community activism, anti government movements, and police brutality. The Ballas are known for their fanatic love for the color Purple, also referred to in slang as Burple short for Ballas Purple. Although purple is their color of choice, it cannot be used to accurately identify members of the gang due to the fact that local thugs will enforce the purple dress code within the community regardless of if they represent the Ballas gang. If local residents of the community are found without some sort of purple attire they are likely to be harassed, jumped, or robbed by the local thugs. Likewise, visitors of the area are also at risk if they enter parts of the city claimed by the Ballas gang. Ballas commonly refer to ones purple clothing or accessories as their grapes. Gang members are often under the influence of a grape drink known as syrup or lean which they sip out of styrofoam cups which is typically a concoction of prescription grade promethazine, grape juice, and sprite. Full fledged members of the Ballas gang will receive a purple bandana also known as a rag which they're required to keep with them to demonstrate their affiliation. Ballas members can be spotted rocking the Los Santos "B" baseball team logo hats and tattoos as well as tattoos sporting their sacred Mother Mary whom is at the center of Ballas cult like religious beliefs. Jamestown Community Projects are a set of low-income housing projects in the lower south side of Los Santos. These project buildings leave a lot to be desired in terms of living conditions but provide extremely cheap means of housing for new city residents which the gang uses to its advantage often forcing low-income residents to pay illegal taxes for owning property within the gangs turf areas as well as recruiting low-income members whom are often easy to exploit with the profitability of illegal activity in Los Santos. As mentioned, Ballas will enforce all community members to fly the purple gang colors even if they are not affiliated with the gang. Jamestown Street's 504 and 514 blocks are notorious for illegal gang activity. The project housing located on the 504 block provides cheap housing for illegal activities such as trap houses, whore houses, and drug manufacturing which is difficult for police to keep track of and monitor. All in all, the Jamestown Hood Ballas are spread along the lower south east side of Los Santos and are known for their fluid living situations, often having large trap house group homes as well as several stash locations. Members often switch housing with other members or family members on purpose to throw off Police task forces. The Balla Code is the set of OOC rules the Ballas faction expects every member to adhere to at all times. Heavy roleplay is expected from all members of the faction which means you are required to be in-character at all times and keep OOC chat to a minimum. We expect your character to have his or her own background story that you're able to roleplay in game. We do not recruit members via OOC means, if you wish to join the faction you'll need to create a character and find us in-game on your own accord to initiate roleplay with our faction. Attempts to PM faction leaders or members to join the gang will result in immediate rejection. Every faction member is expected to adhere to all faction rules and Eclipse RP server rules at all times. Violating Eclipse RP server rules may result in removal from the faction on an OOC level. If a faction member is punished by an Eclipse RP server admin they're required to report it to the Ballas faction leader with their explanation of the events and how they plan to avoid further issues. Faction leaders (O.G. / Don) have the ability to initiate a CK of any the faction members if they deem necessary. A faction member will be notified of the CK upon being killed by a faction leader. In the case of the CK being carried out successfully, the faction member would be removed from the faction and the character would be effectively killed off from all past interaction with the gang. The entirety of this faction thread is OOC and no knowledge from this thread should be used in-game by any players. STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION

    Los Santos Vagos

    For best reading experience it is recommended to play the following song while viewing the LS Vagos faction thread: The historicity of the Vagos, when the gang was formed, and historical events about the gang is shrouded in mystery, though they probably started forming along with the other Los Santos gangs during the 70's and 80's. Prior to 1992, they also controlled northern East Los Santos. This is evidenced by CJ's reaction to OG Loc directing CJ to northern East Los Santos to find and kill Freddy during the mission OG Loc. CJ states, "Ain't this Vagos' hood?". This is due to CJ being away from Los Santos for five years and not been knowledgable on the current situation of the gangs. During 1992, the area is actually controlled by the Ballas instead. Likewise, a Vagos gang house remains in the area - which is destroyed during the mission Burning Desire. Since northern East Los Santos was once part of Vagos territory before falling under Ballas control in 1992, there must have been either a gang war or a diplomatic agreement between the Ballas and the Vagos at some point. The start and reason of their rivalries with the Aztecas, Grove Street Families, and Ballas are unknown. It is likely that hostilities naturally developed due to territorial expansion. Their hostilities towards the Grove Street Families has increased over the years due to their involvement in crack-cocaine and the weakening of the GSF - which the Vagos see as an opportunity to possibly take over. WHAT DOES THE WORLD THINK OF "Los Santos Vagos"? A string of brutal murders in Los Santos has thrown a national spotlight on LS Vagos, a street gang that was born in LS but has roots in Sandy Shores. The latest was a mass murder on Monday on Chumash Beach, where the bodies of four males, including three teenagers, were found mangled in the woods, according to police. President Nobody tweeted to call the gang "bad". Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed to "devastate" it. Both blamed Osvaldon-era immigration policy for its rise. But what is LS Vagos and is Osvaldon really to blame? A reputation for extreme violence The gang began in the barrios of Los Santos in LS during the 1980s, formed by immigrants who had fled Sandy Shores' long and brutal civil war. Other members came from Las Venturas, Paleto Bay. LS Vagos established a reputation for extreme violence and for killing with machetes. It took root in neighbourhoods dominated by Mexican gangs, and later expanded to other parts of the country. According to the FIB, the gang has spread to whole state. In 2012, the LS Treasury designated the gang a "transnational criminal organisation". It was the first street gang to receive the dubious honour, placing it alongside much larger international cartels like the Mexican Zetas, Japanese Yakuza and Italian Camorra. Brutal initiations: LS Vagos has been accused of recruiting poor and at-risk teenagers. Joining is said to require being "jumped in" - subjected to a vicious "lazy" beating - and "getting wet" - carrying out a crime, often a murder, for the gang. Leaving is potentially even more dangerous. Large chest tattoos brand members for life, and some factions are said to murder members who attempt to leave. A 2008 FIB threat assessment put the size of LS Vagos between 30 and 100 members in the LS, making it one of the largest criminal enterprises in the country. It is now larger outside the country, according to the agency. An anti-gang crackdown in the late 1990s saw hundreds of early members shipped back to Central American countries, where they established offshoots. Estimates put the number of members in Central American countries at at least 200. The gang's annual revenue is about $12.2m according to information from a large-scale Paleto Bay police operation obtained by the Weazel newspaper - mainly from from drugs and extortion. "Kill, rape, control" Recent high-profile cases linked to the gang include the murder of two female high-school students who were attacked with a machete and baseball bat as they walked through their neighbourhood in New York last month - a revenge attack over a minor dispute, according to police. Four alleged LS Vagos members were charged with that crime. Another two alleged members were charged at the same time with the murder of a fellow gang member said to have violated gang protocol. The same month, two alleged members of the gang in Houston, Texas were charged with kidnapping three teenage girls, holding them hostage and raping them before shooting one dead on the side of the road. Big J, 28, and Juan Hernandez, 25, laughed and waved at the cameras during their court appearance. LS Vagos's motto is "kill, rape, control", according to one FIB gang specialist who investigated the group. Blaming Osvaldon Mr Nobody and Mr Sessions have pointed the finger at former President Osvaldon over the spread of LS Vagos, alleging that his open-door immigration policies fuelled its growth. But the gang formed and flourished in the LS long before Mr Osvaldon came to power. LS Vagos was identified as a significant threat in the 1990s, and a special FIB taskforce was convened against the gang in 1994. "The big surge was during Bush-Cheney when the drivers of illegal migration in Los Santos grew, when various crackdowns on crime filled prisons to bursting point, and when funding for rehabilitation programs declined," Fulton T Armstrong, a research fellow at the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies at American University, told fact-checking website Politifact. "I have seen no evidence that the Osvaldon administration can be blamed in any way for the existence or activities of the gang in the LS," said Ioan Grillo, author of a book on LS gang crime. The Osvaldon administration also prioritised the deportation of gang criminals, including LS Vagos members, in an aggressive deportation program. Politifact rated Mr Nobody's claim as false. Published by Weazel. Many Vagos members cover themselves in tattoos. Common markings include "LSV", "VAGOS", the "HUSTLER", the name of their clique, and other symbols. A December 2007 Weazel internet news article stated that the gang was moving away from face tattoos so as to be able to commit crimes without being noticed. Members of LS Vagos, like members of most modern Los Santos gangs, utilize a system of hand signs for purposes of identification and communication. One of the most commonly displayed is the "Take a walk" which forms an 'V' when displayed upside down. This hand sign is similar to the symbol commonly displayed by ancient locos. Founders of LS Vagos took the hand sign upon forming. "We hang over here, ese." "Never walk alone, someone is always watching." J - Jefe (Boss) - Leader of the Gang, Identifiable by a tattoo of important woman in his life, on his forearm and bicep. This is the Gang's leader, you don't want to mess with this Person, if you even try to insult him, your dead. 5 - Mano Derecha / Capitano (Right Hand / Captain) - Second highest in the higherarchy, Identifiable by a XIII under the eyebrow, or a MARAVILLA tattooed around the neck. This is the co-leader of the Gang, respect him, he runs the gang when Jefe is out of town/sleeping. 4 - Vato del Jefe (Friend of the Boss) - OG, Long-time respected member, Identifiable by an X3 tattoo over the gut and torso area. This is a loyal member and has helped the Vagos for years NEVER dis-respect him, he's like the Jefe's son. 3 - Pandillero (Gangster) - Has "Put in work" for the gang, and shown true faith for the barrio. Identifiable by the words "Green Pride" on his chest. 2 - Solado (Soldier) - Has gained some respect in the barrio, but still trying to prove themselfs, Identifiable by a Mexican Eagle, Virgin Marry, or Praying Man tattoo on the left arm. 1 - Cholo/Chola - A basic ragged mameber, Identifiable by a crossed out TAX on the back-side of the hand, near the joint of the thumb. This is a low ranking member who just passed their test and are accepted into Vagos, he doesn't give orders. 0 - Hood Rat - Still doesn't have a sign since he is a fresh meat. These are the lowest rank in Vagos, they dont give orders and are not to be trusted. The Vagos Code is the set of OOC rules Los Santos Vagos faction expects every member to adhere to at all times.

Everybody knew that you shouldn’t fuck with the family. they were so good that most of the time nobody noticed they had killed someone even the person who died hadn’t noticed. which explains the name of the gang” The Professionals”. They always make their victims bleed a lot so that there would be stained blood on the ground. When someone finally found the dead victim, they would be shocked by the stained blood which they did so that everybody knew it was them. In the prime of their bounty hunting career, even the police and government feared them. When the police found a body with black blood on the ground the police were so scared that they just closed the case so that they would not interfere with the family.
