  1. This thread will follow the development of Julissa "Misfit" Espinoza.
  2. Hi guys. Welcome to our gallery which will be reserved for eMe roleplay. We mainly plan to venture inside the jail (TTCF) and bring our inmate characters to life. Have a good read.
  3. Julius "Jules" Hernandez started in journey in the TTCF at the age of sixteen on a drug charge, with his choice of taking it to trial he sat in the county for longer then expected which resulted in him ultimately getting involved with the Sureno's and Cuatro getting him down with the program. Julius had family on the outside and was in constant contact as things went on during his stay in the TTCF, before leaving a few days after his seventeenth birthday he stabbed a black inmate 11 times inside of the shower, leaving him for dead and getting clear of the scene. After being released Jules went to get the "XIII" tattooed over his eyebrow and the tear drop to follow under it representing the work he did on the inside. Not long after his release Jules ended up murdering a man in cold blood in a parking lot with a handgun, Jules shot the man 4 times in the chest before standing over him dumping another 6 rounds into the male. Jules would then get into his car and flee to his girlfriends house where he was caught and brought in on first degree murder charges. He was given Life at sentencing and since then Jules has undergone two birthdays making him 19 at the time of this writing. He has been involved in riots and other activities throughout the TTFC. Jules has built up a name for himself and is aspiring to be a top name/well respected in his new home. Whatever he is called upon to do he accepts with gratitude. Julius now has little to no family on the outside after the death of his two sisters and one of his cousins going missing. He maintains contact with his mother and one of his other cousins, his girlfriend ultimately left him after finding out what he has done. Day by day Julius takes time to reflect and hopes to make parole but understands he has a duty to fulfill and he needs to make sure he can take care of what he needs to on the inside. This thread will follow the development of Julius "Jules" Hernandez from this point forward. This character has already been developed to a certain point so the beginning of his story will be cut out on this thread regarding screenshots. This aims to represent a troubled teen within the TTFC facility that is in too deep and content with his current situation. Anything can happen within the story and major events will be documented.
  4. Although the Mexican Mafia Roleplay Guide goes into some detail in relation to the function of a Camarada and their role within the Mexican Mafia as a whole, the aim of this guide is to provide a more comprehensive overview into Camaradas, the functions they serve and the activities they conduct in more detail. Overview Camaradas are the backbone of the organisation and serve as the direct soldiers of EME in the streets and in jail. They're at the highest level they can be without becoming a Carnal and are normally distinguished individuals who have put in the necessary work during their tenure as a Sureno to elevate themselves to such a standing. Despite this however, Camaradas are still soldiers - meaning their importance is subjective to the value placed in them by the Carnal for whom they're operating. The relationship dynamics significantly vary across Camarada/Carnals, as such there's no standard that can be applied in these relationships. Some are closer to one another than others, with a deeper bond - others keep it to a strict business sense. Examples of this are seen in literature through the relationship dynamics Boxer had with his own Camaradas and crews, in contrast to the seeming bond demonstrated between Huero Shy and Pelon Maciel. Recruitment A Camarada is an experienced and oftentimes veteran Sureño who has gone through the various trials and tribulations set before them and has demonstrated their willingness to both kill and die for EME. In most cases, a Sureños initial steps with the organisation are taken within the correctional system. Over time, individuals of the Sureño car who are incarcerated will be expected to put in work on behalf of the organisation and car while at the same time conduct themselves in accordance to the rules of the house. It is during this time that individuals are noticed by members of the organisation and assigned tasks or asked for ‘favors’ which more often than not involves murder on behalf of the organisation. Once this individual has distinguished themselves as a solid and reliable soldier, they would then be put to further tasks for a Carnal which would typically extend beyond their sentence length and translate into the streets. Demeanor/Personality It’s important to highlight immediately that an individual's personality and demeanor is always subjective to their life experiences and their own individual personality. One shoe does not and will not fit all, however we can draw some rudimentary information from known sources to help understand the basics of how these individuals are expected to act. First and foremost, typically the length of time they spend inside the correctional system is reflected through their personality and demeanor, various yard politics and policies would govern how these individuals develop, for example an individual who has primarily been on the mainline will naturally have a very different experience than that who is has been held in a secure housing unit. As such, experienced inmates such as Camaradas would mostly adapt to the surroundings within which they are; - Individuals would be more coercive and manipulative in the way they act and move. - They would be cautious about what they say and reserve their words. - They would carry themselves with a certain sense of confidence and pride especially around those who are ‘beneath’ them in the social hierarchy. - Their vocabulary in many cases would be more advanced with time. Although this isn’t concrete, it is a good foundation to go off of depending on the development for your character. For example, if your character has been on a Level 4 Yard, then these characteristics would be applicable in contrast to if your character has just been on the mainline. It’s important to always remember also that these are the end of the day human beings, they all have emotions, opinions, moral compasses, families etc which shape the type of person they are. These individuals aren’t all fearless and you are expected to demonstrate this realistic variety in the personality of your characters. They are simply given hard choices, as mentioned earlier in the Mexican Mafia Guide; "A Camarada is an individual who is willing to kill and die for EME without any question or hesitation. At times referred to as ‘expendables’, they are expected to openly accept the possibility of facing life sentences, death rows and even going on ‘kamikaze hits’ or ‘suicide missions’ for EME." They are expected to accept these tasks as not doing so will certainly lead to death, as such their choices are limited, all these things have a significant and severe strain on the mental health of most humans. Drug Use As mentioned earlier, a common theme across this area as a whole is drug abuse. In a roleplay sense this is rarely portrayed correctly, however I would encourage you all to reconsider this and reflect this in your character development. These actions aforementioned previously are not inherently normal to human beings, as such due to the strain they present - oftentimes individuals resort to drug abuse as a coping mechanism. Heroin in particular plays a major role within Sureño communities and plays a major role. There are many sources indicating extensive heroin abuse from an early age within Sureño communities. As a whole, drug-use is under-represented on this server and I would again strongly encourage everyone to consider this for the development of their character. Crews A Camarada working for a Carnal would have their own crew. They would collaborate with the facilitator (Senora) of the crew to communicate with the Carnal, or directly communicate with the Carnal if possible to exercise their demands wherever relevant. Aside from this however, Camaradas would continue their own criminal activities within Sureño territories from which they would pay a tax to the Carnal. These crews operate to extend the sphere of influence and activities of a Carnal into areas that do not already have a Carnal operating in/are not already claimed by a Carnal. They are the ‘operational arm’ of a Carnal. A Camarada is typically the highest paid member within a crew, even more so than the Carnal due to the fact that they’re the ones collecting and distributing directly. These crews can be vast, and in multiples. However as a Camarada, you will mostly be typically overseeing a singular crew - although you can be asked to go handle business in different locations. For your characters, the crews within which you operate will help you conduct your own criminal activities, distribute drugs for you, help you tax the existing sale of drugs and overall serve as a part of your own manpower. As a Camarada, you will most likely be the direct authority these crews would interact with, as you will serve as the firewall/insulation between the Carnal and the crew. Criminal Activities Your characters can and should be involved in various criminal activities. The purpose of a Camarada is not to simply serve as a tool for collection, your characters are unique individuals with vast development behind them which lead them to where they are today. They have a significant financial opportunity available to them that they can exploit through either drug sales, extortion, robberies, illegal gambling, facilitating prostituion and murder. There are several noted cases of EME affiliates and Camaradas robbing drug dealers and extorting them is incredibly common. Your characters should be performing various functions through the extension of their crews and directly as they are afforded an opportunity to do so. There are several avenues you can take with this development and it’s solely a matter of initiative rather than opportunity. I would encourage every Camarada or individuals aspiring to become one to consider these elements and incorporate them into their own character development and into their IC sources of revenue.
  5. I. History 1957-1969 The Mexican Mafia (EME) began its formative period between 1957-1969. The initial steps were taken by then 17 year-old Luis ‘Huero Buff’ Flores from Hawaiian Gardens who alongside fellow imprisoned gang members created the ‘gang of gangs’. The initial vision that served as the motivation behind the Mexican Mafia was to control the black market within the prison system. By the 1960s, the inmates identified as being irreformable were graduated from DVI (Deuel Vocational Institution) to San Quentin Prison, the aim behind this move was to incorporate YA (Youth Authority) prisoners alongside hardened, Adult prisoners to serve as a deterrent for these youth offenders to change their ways. This however did not work and soon after touching down at San Quentin, Jesus ‘Liro’ Pedroza and Eddie ‘Potato Nose’ Loera made their introductions by stabbing to death two convicts. These would become the first two recorded homicides of the Mexican Mafia. CDC intelligence refers to the December of 1961 as ‘Black December’ as it is during this time where the Mexican Mafia began taking significant strides to consolidate themselves as a newly formed Hispanic prison gang within San Quentin prison. During this time, 4 inmates and 1 prison guard are murdered by members of the Mexican Mafia. With various killings of Whites, Blacks and Hispanics to follow over the next decade. 1970-1984 By the 1970-1984, the Mexican Mafia began extending their sphere of influence outside prison walls. The cause behind this was attributed to the Senate Bill (SB-42) which resulted in mass releases of hundreds, including several members of the Mexican Mafia who were released directly from the SHU (Secure Housing Units). This now meant that influential members were now able to ‘Spread the EME gospel’ which with time proved that the strategies deployed by the Mexican Mafia to exert control and influence on the inside could be just as effectively translated on the outside. Over this time, EME essentially would become a household name within Southern California neighborhoods. The mention of EME or the Mexican Mafia would generate real fear as news accounts and stories circulated of the violence the prison gang demonstrated. It was also during this time when the initial EME heroin pipelines began to appear which was pioneered by Joe ‘Peg Leg’ Morgan. It was also during the 1970s-1984 when the Mexican Mafia became well known within the criminal underground beyond their original confines of prison, which again was attributed primarily to their hands-on approach to violence. This aggressive expansion to the exteriors of the prison structure led to creating a significant impression on the consciousness of Southern California gang members who then became known as ‘Sureños’ (Southerners). It’s important to also note that due to the efforts undertaken by the EME members during this era, a key framework/foundation was created for the next generation of members to capitalise on and take charge, the steps undertaken during this time laid the ground works for the Mexican Mafia to directly exploit the manpower of Sureño gangs which is in the tens of thousands as a resource to further their own development and influence. II. Drive-Bys Violence in Los Angeles during the early 1990s was incredibly high, and primarily drive-by shootings served as a key cause of concern for many and served as a direct source of inflicting damage to many innocent women, children and elderly that were caught in the crossfire between Sureño gang wars. The primary concern however behind this was the unwanted media attention it generated for EME. Due to this, it was decided that drive-bys will no longer be tolerated. On September 18, 1992 - a large-scale meeting was held at Elysian park in LA sponsored by EME where over 2,000 Sureño gang members came in attendance. The rules of the meeting were simple, all attendees were to come unarmed, and no attendee would engage in any gang violence before, during or after the meeting. The rules laid out however were not followed by one member of the Opal Street gang who came armed with a pistol. A carnal by the name of Ernest ‘Chuco’ Castro approached the offender in front of all the attendees and proceeded to slap him and take away his firearm. On the back of this action, the Opal Street gang remains greenlit. This direction served multiple motives, it took away the unwanted attention placed on EME and it demonstrated the control and power EME had over the street gangs under it. After this meeting, murder rates in LA dropped significantly. III. Taxation Taxation in the way it’s done now was initially instigated by Peter ‘Sana’ Ojeda, in 1992, Sana who is considered an influential carnal held meetings with gang leaders and members across Orange County where he enforced a truce between Sureños within his territory. After aligning the truce between long-time rivals, Sana moved onto the collecting of taxes from the gangs within his turf. Further to this, the structure of this arrangement was established through ‘reps’ who served as a go-between for the Sureño gangs and EME. The reps would serve multiple functions, the key being; - Collect drug sales/territorial taxes - Act as enforcers for EME. - Serve as a communication line between Sureño gangs and EME. - Establish a vertical leadership structure. It is however important to note that the taxation structure varied, some Carnales demanded tax and tribute from gangs itself that operated within their designated turfs, the regularity of payments also varied from weekly to monthly. There was nor is any specific format that is deployed to govern how a Carnal would conduct their business inside their turf. The initial exercise of halting drive-bys segwayed directly into the taxation which fundamentally became a ‘cash cow’ for EME and demonstrated the willingness thousands of Sureños had to comply with EME’s authority and demands. IV. Greenlights A greenlight/lista are individuals and gangs that are placed on a list targeting them for death. It is expected that anyone greenlighted is targeted by all sureño gangs who are then ordered to attack and kill them on sight in both jail and on the streets. The typical way a greenlight is approached is dependent upon the reasoning behind the greenlight was issued, however if a gang violates an edict issued by EME, then the process is typically to kill the direct offenders of the edict and maintain the greenlight on the gang until the gang approaches its EME rep or a carnal to make amendments for their violation. More often than not, these sanctions are resolved through additional EME taxes which allow offenders to get a pass by the carnal. V. Rules of the Mexican Mafia The Mexican Mafia has several rules in place to safeguard the integrity of the organisation and its members, however more often than not these rules are broken and serve merely as guidelines in the current day. EME reglas (rules) are never written on paper. 1. A member must not be a rat. 2. A member may not be a homosexual. 3. A member may not be a coward. 4. A member may not have sex with the wife or girlfriend of another member. 5. A member may not raise his hand against another member without sanction from the organisation. 6. A member may not politick against another member or cause dissent within the organisation. 7. A member may not steal from or encroach upon the turf of another member. 8. Membership is for life. 9. EME comes first, even before one’s family. VI. Cultural Influence A key propeller behind the Mexican Mafia and La Causa (The EME Cause) is attributed to the importance placed on Hispanic and Aztec cultures. The foundations of many early street gangs such as; White Fence, Temple Street, Clanton Street, Canta Ranas, 38th Street and Hawaiian Gardens all identified strongly with ancient Toltec and Aztec indians as well as the Yaquis and Apaches. The inspiration from these cultures became a source of ethnic pride for these individuals who perceived themselves as ‘street warriors’. These closely knit, proud cultures further reinforced the community themed gangs who served as a form of ‘extended family’ for its members. Furthermore, around this time the aforementioned warrior mentality was appealing to Mexican-American communities during WW2, especially in the case of those Men who served in the war, however for those who held criminal mindsets - this warrior mentality further reinforced and developed their ‘code of conduct’ which fundamentally governed the original street gang culture adopted by Hispanics in Los Angeles. Due to this significance placed in Aztecs and other ancient cultures, EME deploys an array of imagery and vocabulary to demonstrate their affiliation with this warrior culture. Mexican Mafia members have been known to study Nahuatl, which is an ancient language of the Aztec people as well as use the Mayan numeral system. This is not only done to show allegiance to the Mexican Mafia but also to communicate in a covert manner. It is common to hear inmates at Pelican Bay SHU and other maximum security housing facilities teaching each other these languages. The primary reason behind it’s widespread deployment is that very rarely would correctional/judiciary officers be able to understand what is being said. VII. Criminal Activities Aside from the revenue streams generated through the taxation of sureño gangs, EME is involved heavily within drug trafficking, extortion, gambling, prostitution and murder. Due to the structural nature of the organisation, many of these activities are conducted by camaradas who in turn pay their own taxes to a carnal for conducting any criminal activity in their turf. A key area as mentioned earlier for EME is drug trafficking, by establishing heroin pipelines in the late 70s, the foundations established by the earlier generations continue to be a source of revenue for EME with various operations darted across East Los Angeles primarily to process heroin and meth. VIII. Leadership Structure From the early beginnings of EME, the recruitment policy was to recruit the ‘cream of the crop’ At the beginning stages of the Mexican Mafia, the new recruits brought in were veteran gang leaders who were unaccustomed to taking direct orders, realising this, Huero Buff understood that appointing himself as the direct leader would subject EME to infighting, politicking and power-plays which would only serve to weaken the organisation especially during its early stages. Therefore, the leadership structure of EME was crafted to where all members/carnales were equals and awarded a vote on matters that concerned EME as a whole. The leadership structure is horizontal with no direct leader overseeing the organisation as a whole, with all carnales being ‘equal’ and awarded the same vote as one another. This however is further covered in the power dynamics section which explains the informal hierarchy that exists. IX. Power Dynamics Although the leadership structure of EME is horizontal with no leader on the top to oversee the organisation as a whole, informal hierarchies do exist within the organisation. The term used for this is ‘juice/jugo’ which essentially refers to the level of influence and power a carnal holds within the organisation. The level of ‘juice’ a carnal has is subjective to their political acumen, intelligence and diplomatic maneuvering which determines how they’re positioned within the organisation. If a carnal with a lot of power and influence proposes someone for membership, then more than likely that individual will get welcomed in despite any concerns other members without as much power/influence may have. An example of this is seen in the case of Pelon Maciel who was sponsored for membership by Huero Shy in 1995, despite all present for the vote not knowing who he was, Pelon was voted in and made a carnal. Another example of ‘juice’ is seen in the case of Huero Buff who engaged in consensual sex with the wife of another member within EME. For any normal member, they would’ve been executed for such an infraction however due to the influence and power held by Huero Buff, he suffered no sanction for this. X. Carnales/EMERO’s An EMERO or a carnal is a made member of the Mexican Mafia. Typically, these individuals have proven their loyalty to the organisation and have been sponsored for membership by another, existing member of the organisation who is in good standing. The individual who nominated the new member serves as the ‘padrino’ for the newly made carnal and is expected to explain all the rules, and the newly made member is expected to memorise them. Once the individual has become a Carnal, they’re free to operate and conduct their business anywhere where a Carnal is not already operating. Personality/Demeanor The demeanor and personality of these individuals vary drastically, more often than not there is drug and substance abuse involved - however as any individual their characteristics, personalities, demeanours is all contingent upon their own beliefs, morals and life experiences. However, despite this - it’s important to note that becoming a Carnal is a major event and is a source of pride for most of these individuals, as such their personalities and demeanors may adapt based on this newfound status. No shoe fits all, and as such - you will find the Carnales having drastically different personalities, some may be more strict and aggressive with a more imposing personality whereas others may be more laid back and polite. Drug abuse is also a common area under-represented in roleplay which is something that everyone needs to consider when roleplaying characters like this, in specific heroin abuse. The level of intelligence, political acumen (as discussed in power dynamics) and other variables are all contingent upon the development of your character, as stated across various interviews pertaining to the Mexican Mafia, the Carnales significantly varied in their approach to conflicts, issues as well as how they presented themselves. Their level of knowledge, vocabulary and other aspects of life also varied based on this information. Induction Process Currently, a three-member rule is used by the Mexican Mafia when inducting new members. The three-member rule requires a minimum of three (including the sponsor) made Carnales to vote an individual into EME. If other members are present at the location (I.E Pelican Bay SHU), then they must all participate in the voting process. The reason behind this is to minimise corruption within the induction system and limit politicking/power plays amongst Carnales. If any single member was to vote against the potential member, then the vote would be thrown out and the individual would not become a Carnal. Tattoos Symbolism is incredibly important in EME, and to the trained eye - the tattoos of an individual can tell you exactly who someone is and where they are from. As such, being a Carnal is a source of pride and the tattoos would serve as a source through which the individuals are openly tied to the organisation. Carnales may choose to represent their affiliation in simplistic manners through small tattoos saying M, EME, LA M or alternatively use the black hand and other forms of symbolism. Despite the fact that there is a rule in the organisation to never admit its existence, the tattoo culture within the organisation acts as a direct contradiction to those rules. XI. Camaradas/Soldados Camaradas are Sureños who have put in work for the Mexican Mafia/Carnales and are elevated to become a Camarada/Soldado. You do not have to be a Sureño to become a Camarada, in fact Norteños can also become Camaradas, and there are many Carnales who are also Norteños, however the distinction needs to be made between a Norteño and a member of the Nuestra Familia (NF). A Camarada is an individual who is willing to kill and die for EME without any question or hesitation. At times referred to as ‘expendables’, they are expected to openly accept the possibility of facing life sentences, death rows and even going on ‘kamikaze hits’ or ‘suicide missions’ for EME. They are tested, tried and trusted soldiers and friends of EME. For Sureños wanting to make an impression with EME, they would need to establish themselves in the criminal underworld to become Camaradas which then would serve as the first step in them being potentially inducted into EME. It is important to note that very few Camaradas actually complete the circle of being inducted into EME, with many perishing in political clashes amongst Carnales and ‘house cleanings’ in which internal purges take place. A Camarada would carry out several activities on the streets and in jail for Carnales and also conduct their own business from which typically they would pay taxes to the Carnale within who’s turf they’re operating. The type of work these Camaradas can do varies, from robberies, extortion, murder to various rackets such as illegal gambling and prostitution - the criminal activities that Camaradas take part in are vast. Crews The hierarchy of an atypical EME crew would be as follows for a Carnal who is incarcerated. The figurehead of the crew would be the Carnal, beneath him there would be a ‘facilitator’ who usually would be the wife, girlfriend or relative of the Carnal as they would have easier means of communicating with them as well as natural trust. Beneath the facilitator is the Camarada who communicates solely with the Carnal and the facilitator. Beneath the Camarada, there is a crew leader who are individuals selected by Camaradas to enforce, collect payments and distribute narcotics. Beneath the crew chiefs are the crew members who are workers, dealing drugs and conducting other criminal activities in their respective gang territories. The ultimate authority lies with the Carnal, however if the Carnal is incarcerated then the authority by proxy is with the Camarada. As the lower echelon of these crews will never interact with the higher levels such as the facilitator or the Carnal, and the higher levels wouldn’t want to interact with the lower ones due to fear of information being divulged to law enforcement - the Camaradas act as a sort of firewall and intermediary between the two and are of significant importance. These crews are not isolated to one, a carnal can have multiple crews. The range of the crews is also vast, for example Rene ‘Boxer’ Enriquez from Artesia California was not solely operating in Artesia, he was allowed to operate anywhere that a Carnal is not already operating/is not already claimed by a Carnal. This means that any area without the presence of a Carnal is free-game, a Carnal can establish a crew anywhere they deem necessary. In the case of Boxer, he operated in; Riverside, Lennox, Victorville, Norwalk, Haiwaiian gardens, Artesia, and North-East LA, with different crews. These crews can also extend to prisons. It is also important to note that typically, a Carnal who is incarcerated would not always be the highest paying member of these crews. The reasoning behind this is if a Carnal wishes to achieve a successful crew without micromanagement, then he would need to ensure that everyone is earning money and has the autonomy to function without the need of micromanagement. For a Carnal who is not incarcerated, logic will deduce that the income they receive would be higher in comparison to the Carnales who are. XII. Señoras Women play a critical role in the structure of EME, and have successfully done so for the larger part of the organisation's history. The role Women have played has successfully served as a form of insulation from law enforcement, and has halted many law enforcement investigations and prosecutions of Carnales. Within an atypical EME crew, the role of the Señora is second only to the Carnal. The nature of these relationships varied, with some Señoras being openly aware of their involvement within EME activity, others being somewhat aware and some being completely kept in the dark and expected to be loyal. Señoras are the wives and girlfriends of Carnales within the Mexican Mafia. The typical activities they would be involved in would be facilitating, communicating as well as being the end-point for most of the funds extracted by the crews of the Carnal. There are many examples of these activities taking place, however a more recent example is seen through Danny ‘Popeye’ Roman who was an incarcerated Carnal and a leader of the Harpys 13 gang. Popeye’s daughter, Vianna managed her father’s business in the streets and acted as a facilitator between him and his crew, relaying orders to underlings to extort, assault and kill. Vianna pleaded guilty in 2014 to racketeering, drug trafficking and firearms offenses and is currently serving a 15 year prison sentence. Sources;
  6. Canta Ranas Canta Ranas (Singing Frogs) is a multi-generational Latino gang in East Los Santos, founded in the late 1940s to early 1950s, it is amongst one of the oldest gangs from that area. According to locals and federal law enforcment, the gang chose the name 'Canta Ranas' due to the frogs in the area croaking loudly during heavy rains. Known as a violent gang, with many members of the organisation known to be affiliated with the Mexican Mafia and have deep roots within drug trafficking. One of the known traditions of the gang is have to 'earn your frogs', in order to have a frog tattoo'd on you. The only way these frogs are earned is through murder. In recent years however, many affiliated members of the gang were sentenced to federal prison. It was alleged at this time that 51 members of the Canta Ranas organisation were named in an indictment alleging violations of the racketeer influenced and corrupt organisations act (RICO). This was a major hit to the organisation and has attributed to a significant collapse in the organisational structure of the gang. Woody Rene 'Woody' Grajeda was born on October 12th, 1995 near El Rancho Blvd, East Los Santos. Raised in an area known to be at the time dominated by the 'Canta Ranas' (Singing Frogs) gang, Woody was indoctrinated into the gang life like many others from his family. Having a relatively troublesome upbringing plagued by neglect and abuse, Woody turned to alcohol and drugs as a form of escape from the obstacles of life set before him. From his early teenage age, Woody has been addicted to heroin and this continues to be a vice that dictates almost every area of his life. Amplified by his dedication to his gang and neighborhood, Woody was eager to make a name for himself in his neighborhood which in turn lead to him being charged with kidnapping and getting federal prison time. During his time in prison, Woody made aquaintances with members of the Mexican Mafia and earned a reputation for himself as being a reliable individual which carried throughout his tenure. Upon his release, Woody tried to return his life to some normality as he knew best and upon his release, Woody was given approval to transfer into Victor "Big Midget" Arroyo's crew.
  7. Pablo Salazar, commonly known as Rugrat is a well known gang-member throughout majority of South Los Santos, specifically Chamberlain Hills. Pablo resided within Chamberlain Hills, an area infested with the local Chamberlain Varrio Tortilla Flats 13 gang. Introduced at a young age, Pablo affiliated himself with the gang, often participating in brawls and various illicit activities under GUNNERS. He quickly built a name for himself due to his surplus energy and personality, leading to his alias, Rugrat. Pablo came from a broken home, often experiencing mental and physical abuse from his father Cristian Salazar while his stay-at-home mother resorted to skante as an escape of the family's troubles. He resorted to the local gang as a replacement for his biological family, eventually cutting ties with his original family. Pablo was addicted to video-games when he was younger, often bragging about his skills on FaceBrowser and to the residents of the Flats. His addictive personality branched out to various gate-way drugs, starting with xanax and slowly investing itself into cocaine. Many years after his induction into the gang, a massive power surge was experienced within the gang, resulting in Rugrat stepping into an unusual position. He proclaimed a greater title and was tasked with various different responsibilities, along with abnormal levels of stress and anxiety. His past-anxiety issues surfaced again, this time around using cocaine as a replacement for his medication. Rugrat, along with Lil Demonio took control of the gang, managing income and relations with various other sets throughout Los Santos. Years later, Rugrat had assumed a primary leadership position within the gang, maintaining strong relations with those he most trusted, namely Silent and Bandit. After establishing a sustainable presence for the gang, he was approached by Scrappy to which he was tasked with various responsibilities, responsibilities he believed he could uphold. When Pablo was sixteen, his girlfriend gave birth to a nuisance of what cannot be referred to as a child, namely Charlie Salazar.
