Los Santos Vagos

Recommended Posts


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.




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.

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.

  • 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 Los Santos Vagos faction leader with their explanation of the events and how they plan to avoid further issues.


  • Faction leader (Jefe) 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.post-2876-0-75942300-1461952156.png

We're still working on what we're roleplaying, since not all people agree on same things. Once everything is set up and we figure out what we even wanna be, that's the time when Vagos is gonna be the greatest.

News: We're working on an expanded lore and new videos of the faction itself. It is going to be published once the new system is active.
