  1. Charleston St. Locos Salvatruchos 13 The CSLS13: GSLS13, an abbreviation for Goma Street Locos Salvatruchos 13, was a noted street gang in Vespucci, South West LS, formed via predominantly Central American ethnic minorities. The recent surge of gang activity within Goma Street derived from the return of local MS-13 affiliates. That being said, with the aid of these local affiliates, there’s been noted to be more unity amongst the ethnic minorities. As of recently, the area had been riddled with various key words and numerology belonging to the subset of the MS-13, such as; MS, MS-13, MS 13, MS X3, 13, and XIII. Ethnic minorities within the vicinity were noted flagging various affiliated colours such as blue and white. The new era: However, as of recently, a new era of the formerly known GSLS13 has been noted in Charleston Street. Formed now as the Charleston Street Locos Salvatruchos 13 which dates back recently to the arrival of Central Americans which were formerly inhabiting Tug Street. Many of the newer inhabitants in Charleston Street formerly resided within the vicinity of Vespucci and were later issued new contractual agreements as tenants with a rise in rent. This led to many Central Americans within the vicinity flocking to the newer housing project located on Charleston Street. As of recently, violence and brutality represents a centrepiece of the gang’s self identity and is used by higher ranking MS-13 affiliates for recruitment and discipline purposes. Crime against individuals flows from theft, battery, and assault to participating in narcotic sales. Method used, operational methods used as means for CSLS13 to maintain the gang’s notoriety. Furthermore, the CSLS13 affiliates are known for their wild and overprotective antics amongst their neighbourhood. OOC: Currently situated in Davis, Charleston Street. Furthermore, all roleplay within the faction must be portrayed accordingly. CSLS13 is a MS-13 clique formed in a vicinity driven by harsh poverty. All characters within the area must roleplay according to these harsh settings as Charleston St. is neighboured by various other gangs, and thus, individuals must roleplay wary to these situations. For further enquiries feel free to PM @alooshyyy.

  3. The Mara Salvatrucha (MS), also known by the alternatives names 'Las Dos Letras (The Two Letters)', Trece Diecenueve (Thirteen Nineteen) or simply La Mara is a large and brutally violent Salvadoran street gang that was formed in Little Seoul, Los Santos in the early 1980's under the name 'Mara Salvatrucha Stoners'. They were originally a relatively peaceful group who were more about good times, peace and fun than anything to do with violence. They were what was at the time called a 'Party Crew'. However, during much of the 1980's and early 1990's the Mara Salvatrucha were targeted by local street gangs, this caused various instances of interethnic clashes, most of which dragged on for years. This caused somewhat of a divide between Salvadorans and Mexicans in the Los Santos area. When the inter-ethnic clashes of the 1980's and early 1990's were over, the Mara Salvatrucha Stoners group was no longer a single click of Salvadoran youngsters who identified with punk rock culture. They were a new and vicious breed of street gang who were feared throughout the city's impoverished districts and slums for their cold blooded approach to crime. It was during this time period that the Mexican Mafia (eMe) met with Mara Salvatrucha Stoners shotcallers in the streets and brought them under the umbrella of Latino gangs in Southern San Andreas. The shotcallers from the Mara Salvatrucha agreed to the Mexican Mafia's demands and officially added 13 to their street gang's name, thus making them the Mara Salvatrucha 13 (MS, MS13 and or MS - 13). The Mara Salvatrucha have historically and traditionally identified themselves in various ways. They usually wear blue and white clothing, sports paraphernalia with the number 13 on it, are heavily tattooed (especially on the face) and communicate with gang signs such as the Devil Horns. No matter which geographical region that they occupy, they predominately speak Central American dialects of Spanish that heavily incorporate urban slang from both El Salvador and the Chicano subculture of Southern San Andreas. Their moral subculture dictates that extreme acts of violence that include decapitation, disembowelment, physical castration, rape and other forms of sexual assault are necessary in order to obtain retribution against their rivals. During the late 1990s and especially during the early to late 2000s, members of Mara Salvatrucha migrated out of San Andreas in order to evade law enforcement prosecution. They mostly settled in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington D.C. but some of them settled in Texas and Florida. Thus, the first out-of-state sets of the Mara Salvatrucha were formed by these migrants. At the same time, members of the Mara Salvatrucha were deported back to their home countries of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. This enabled the Mara Salvatrucha to entrench themselves within Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras but not so much in Nicaragua. In Costa Rica and Panama, the street gang is practically non existent. The Mara Salvatrucha in Los Santos since 2005 has a been fractured gang, split into offshoots known as 'programs', which usually contain clusters of cliques that are loyal to them. Each program typically has its own structure and rules. The most prominent MS-13 in Los Santos has been the Los Santos or Sureno Program, which for a long time served as a governing body amongst MS-13 cliques in the city. However, In mid 2020. Xiomara 'La Zombie' Coreas was shot and killed by the Los Santos Police Department. The death of a highly respected shotcaller, which was followed by the incarceration of Josue 'Lil Bandit' Zelaya, another highly respected shotcaller created a leadership vacuum among the Mara Salvatrucha offshoots throughout San Andreas. This same leadership vacuum caused Josue Zelaya's empire to crumble ontop of itself a after he was very quickly shipped off to another state by San Andreas authorities in an effort to lower the gang shotcaller's influence within the gang.Some of the vacuum was a result of the hesitance of mid level and lower level members to move up in the Mara Salvatrucha's hierarchy, where they'd be targeted by law enforcement. At the same time however, with the lack of a solid leadership within the so called 'Los Santos' Program of MS-13. Several factions and cliques, including the Forum Locos Salvatruchas clique of the MS-13 have returned to using more traditional and violent methods, similar to what has been seen throughout Central American countries and in other parts of the United States such as Liberty City, Vice City and Maryland. The introduction and continuation of more violent tactics used by MS-13 is the result of other factions within the MS-13 gang emerging in an effort to exert their dominance in South Los Santos, as opposed to affiliating themselves with the Mexican Mafia and its extensive criminal enterprise in San Andreas and in prison facilities as members of the Mara Salvatrucha in San Andreas have done extensively in the past. This has been the result of various MS-13 members and offshoots throughout San Andreas no longer fearing what might happen if they step out of line and betray the so called 'Los Santos Program' within MS-13. This is because In Josue Zelaya's Mara, those who committed violent rapes, drive by's and murdered innocents were brutally murdered by Zelaya and his loyalists. Now in his absence, nobody is there to force the more violent offshoots of MS-13 back into line with the Mexican Mafia. As a result, several cliques have returned to the MS-13's original way of operation and as a consequence, have re-modelled themselves after MS-13 cliques throughout the Eastern Coast of the United States and also after various offshoots seen throughout Latin America. Brutal violence that often includes vicious beheadings, medeival style murders, rape, senseless kidnappings, drive by's, forced human trafficking and the murders of innocents have become commonplace among many, if not all MS-13 offshoots that are present throughout Los Santos. Forum Locos Salvatruchas (FLS) The Forum Locos Salvatruchas (FLS), also known as the Mara Salvatrucha Forum Locos (MS FLS) are a small and tightly knit Mara Salvatrucha 13 clique that operates off the Strawberry side of Forum Drive in South Central Los Santos. The FLS clique was formed in 1992 by members of the Mara Salvatrucha gang who migrated from Little Seoul into the South Central slums of Strawberry. Due to the growing number of Salvadorans and other Central Americans in the area of Chamberlain Hills and Strawberry, the Mara Salvatrucha began to rapidly recruit and build up a sheltered, but strong presence in the neighbourhood. The gang became entrenched in the Casa Cristina and The Tahitian Housing Projects from 1994 onward. By 1998 the Mara Salvatrucha Forum Locos had managed to become one of the most reputable Salvadoran street gangs in the South Central area. They were feared throughout South Los Santos for their involvement in horrific violence. Although some didn't fear the Forum Locos, but instead hated and despised them. By 2001 the Forum Locos Salvatruchas were considered the universal enemies of most, if not all Mexican American and African American gangs in the South Central area. In the years following 2015 the gang saw a slight increase in activity in the Strawberry area, but due to the resurgence of old enemies such as the Rollin 60's Neighborhood Crips (RSC), Jungle Stone Bloods (JSB), East Side 13 (ES13), Playboys 13 (PBS) and the Ghetto Boyz (GBZ) by 2018 the Forum Locos clique was forced almost completely underground. All the years of being on everybody's scope, coupled with several other factors such as inter-gang tension between the Forum Locos and other MS-13 cliques in Los Santos would take their toll in the Forum Locos clique. By 2019 the Forum Locos were not only greenlit by several other MS 13 cliques throughout Los Santos, but were also on less than favorable terms with the Mexican Mafia. The Forum Locos had fallen out of the Mexican Mafia's good graces for their involvement in a horrific spasm of violence that took place in the years between 2017 and 2019. The spasm of violence was categorized by senseless abductions, the murders of innocents and children, sex crimes and various other acts that were less than favourable in the eyes of the Mexican Mafia. The FLS clique's fate was sealed when the leader, Jerry Flores a/k/a Maniak was murdered by a member of a South LS Sureno gang with the alleged help of several MS-13 affiliates. By 2019 the Forum Locos Salvatruchas clique was considered fully defunct Months later, during the later months of 2020, members of former MS-13 cliques throughout Los Santos gathered in the 'The Tahitian' Housing Projects in South Los Santos. where they aimed to continue the Forum Drive Locos Salvatruchas clique and forge a new name for the clique and also for the gang itself in Southern Los Santos. The clique's reformation was for the most part kept under wraps. No evidence of the group's presence in Chamberlain Hills was visible for some time, apart from the odd tag here and there. Many of their gang tags have been depicted by a skeletal hand holding up the infamous Devil Horns (La Garra/The Claw) handsign along with the large letters 'MS' 'FLS' '1319' 'XIII' 'MARA SALVATRUCHA' and 'MAREROS'.. Recently the newly revived clique of the MS-13 gang has taken up residence in the Tahitian and Casa Cristina housing projects in Chamberlain Hills, where they've re-established a rather sheltered and fragile presence for themselves in the area of Forum & Carson. Much of the Mara Salvatrucha gang's new generation of members members have been described as extremely young and for the most part, lacking tattoos. The Mara Salvatrucha gang's newer generation is much more disconnected from the Mexican Mafia than previous generations have been. Lacking any sort of morals or code when it comes to the way they operate in the streets. If it doesn't benefit them, they don't care to destroy it. Not many of them are even past the age of 24. All suffering from extreme impoverishment and all carrying extremely violent attitudes and tendencies towards perceived enemies. This level of violence was caused by a new clique policy within the Forum Locos clique that required prospect members to commit a violent murder in order to join the clique. As the weeks went by, Residents who were African-American or Mexican-American began to be harassed by the new generation of Salvadoran gangsters in the neighbourhood. One woman from the Casa housing projects described being ruthlessly harassed and stalked by members of the Salvadoran gang, even witnessing her boyfriend get shot down in cold blood after attempting to discuss an issue with the teenaged gang members. 'They shot him for nothing' the female resident us, peering nervously at a bald headed Salvadoran teenager who was perched up on the steps nearby as she spoke to us. She later explained to us that everybody who entered the Casa Cristina projects while the gang was outside would likely become subject subject to the same type of harassment, surveillance and extreme violence which was both sexual and physical in nature The Forum Locos Salvatruchas and the greater Mara Salvatrucha street gang are for the most part unfriendly towards most, if not all Mexican, Asian and African American street gangs throughout Los Santos. In light of this fact, they're alleged to have an alliance of convenience with the Mexican Mafia, very weak ties to a small Hispanic gang known as Diablos 13 (DIA) and an alleged understanding with the Black P Stones (BPS) and the W/S Rollin 20's Neighborhood Bloods (RTB). Although the aforementioned alliances are alleged to only be a result of the Black P Stones and Rollin 20's gangs' long standing and bloody feuds with the Barrio 18 (XV3) gang. Rivals of the Forum Locos Salvatruchas and of the Mara Salvatrucha in general include but aren't limited to; Playboys 13 (PBS13), Harpys 13 (HPS13), Ghetto Boyz (GBZ13), Rollin 60's Neighborhood Crip (RSC), Innocence Family Gangster Bloods (IFGB), Hillside Gangsters 13 (HSGS13), Alley Locos 13 (ALS13), Aztlan 13 (AZT13), Wanderers 13 (W13), White Fence 13 (WF13), Drifters 13 (DFS13), Barrio 18 (XV3/18) and the Crazy Riders 13 (CRS13) street gang. OOC INFORMATION The Forum Lokos Salvatruchas faction intends to portray a fictional, but realistic and well portrayed Mara Salvatrucha 13 offshoot/clique which is heavily based off of the Mara Salvatrucha's 'Fulton Locos' clique. We intend to portray a close to defunct MS-13 offshoot/clique which has not only become disaffected by the previous leadership of the MS-13, but is also despised by many MS-13. While many former MS-13 cliques in the city have been loyal to the so caled 'Los Santos' or 'Sureno' program among MS-13, the Forum Locos Salvatruchas don't, and instead hold loyalties to another MS-13 offshoot known as the Mara Salvatrucha 503. The Mara Salvatrucha 503 is portrayed as a fictional/semi non-fictional faction of the Mara Salvatrucha that carries a great pride in upholding the values of Salvadoran Nationalism and adherence to MS-13's more violent roots. While most Mara Salvatrucha 13 groups are focused on money, the Mara Salvatrucha 503 is heavily focused on terorizing their enemies and also local communities through the use of horrific violence. Upon becoming affiliated to the Forum Locos Salvatruchas (Jumped in / completing your initiation process) you automatically accept gore & character kill permission, which the leadership of Forum Locos Salvatruchas will excersize if need be. Along with the latter, if one's character begins their initiation process with the clique and ends up dying during a gang related activity, your character will be considered Character Killed (CKed) as well. Although, once jumped into the clique. Players are safe from character kills unless decided on by the faction's leadership. Additionally, characters from former MS-13 factions are more than welcome to attempt to associate themselves with this faction. Though, be warned. If you do so, and are found to be a 'Sureno loyal MS-13' member, you run the risk of being character killed by the faction's leadership if need be. Questions, concerns, reports against members of the faction & criticism can be sent to @Ears Up. We take our portrayal extremely seriously and the leadership welcomes and encourages anybody who wishes to bring something to our attention.

  4. MORENA MARTÍNEZ (TRIPZ) Thread will showcase the life of an 18-year-old marera from the Forum Locos Salvatruchas (FLS) clique. Ethnicity: Salvadoran Backstory: Morena Martínez a/k/a Tripz is a 18-year-old Mara Salvatrucha 13 (MS-13) gang member from El Salvador. Morena was born on the 9th of September, 2002. The majority of her family still live in San Salvador. Most of her family are all impoverished with very few exceptions. Broken homes, dysfunctional families, abusive parents, and mental illness are a fixture of the family's history. This has caused a familial generational cycle of criminal activity, such as independent criminals and street gang membership for a little over 100 years. Around 90% of Morena's family are mareros or mareras themselves. Plenty of her own direct ancestors and their siblings were involved in the Salvadoran Civil War. Her father, Jose Martínez a/k/a Menace, was a drug dealer and initiated member of the Tiny Winos (TWS) MS-13 clique. Her mother, Selena Martínez, was a high school dropout who dealt crack cocaine with her partner. She also had a criminal record for prostitution that she served one year and a half behind bars in a women's only state prison in 1993-1994. Both Jose and Selena made a big effort to keep Morena sheltered from their criminal activities, though it was inevitable that she'd eventually see what was really going on. Morena was exposed to child abuse, child neglect and some family violence from a very young age. Both of her parents were often unable to provide the basic necessities of life, often having verbal and physical altercations at home. By 2010, her father had developed a drinking problem which made him prone to sudden fits of alcohol-fueled rage. He took this anger out on his family and was a very physically violent person at the worst of times. It didn't take long for Morena to end up dealing drugs herself. At the age of 14 she started selling hard drugs like crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine and heroin. She became more involved with the local MS-13 gang after her father died from a sudden meth overdose. She eventually found trouble with the LSPD for her dealing of hard drugs throughout all of Chamberlain Hills. She's also done prison time for savagely attacking a 15-year-old African-American that dissed the set she was claiming. Morena joined the Forum Lokos Salvatruchas (FLS) clique when she was 15, participating in a deadly shooting that targeted an 18th Street gang-controlled drug den.
  5. PICTURED: The only existing image of Edwin 'El Conejo' Munguia. Edwin Bejerano-Munguia, known on the streets and within the MS-13 criminal enterprise as 'El Conejo' or 'The Rabbit' is a teenage Mara Salvatrucha gang member from Apopa, El Salvador. He was born to a poverty stricken family that both in Central America and in the United States had strong ties to the Mara Salvatrucha gang. Many of his relatives from both countries have been and still are for the most part affiliated to MS-13. Edwin's father, Enrique Orejon-Munguia was one of the founding members of the Mara Salvatrucha Stoners gang in the 1980's before being deported back to El Salvador, where he had three children with another MS-13 deportee, a young woman named Jazmin Bejerano. During much of his early childhood, Edwin and his siblings, a younger brother and sister all managed to avoid recruitment into the local street gangs in El Salvador due to strict parenting from his mother and father, both of whom wanted to avoid allowing their children to take the same self destructive path that they took. Although, this didn't work. When Edwin was only 6 years old he witnessed his younger brother (4) get viciously hacked to death by a small Salvadoran street gang known as 'Mara Maquina', a homegrown street gang which was located on the Western side of Apopa. . Due to the fact that Edwin and his family lived in Mara Salvatrucha controlled turf, the Mara Maquina members immediately associated the two boys with their enemies. While Edwin escaped from the initial confrontation, seeing his young, non gang affiliated brother get brutally murdered sent him down the same path that his parents feared him going down, at full throttle. Weeks after his brother was murdered, Edwin approached the Mara Salvatrucha affiliates in the neighbourhood begging for his family's protection. The Mara Salvatrucha affiliates told him that he'd have to join them, to which he immediately agreed. Over the course of four years, Edwin worked towards proving himself to the Mara Salvatrucha by acting as a look-out, identifying rival gang members (scouting) and also by selling soft and hard drugs in Apopa's various slums. At the end of the four year period, Edwin was given the opportunity to avenge his family member's violent death. He was bought infront of a bound, gagged and blindfolded member of the Mara Maquina gang, immediately he was given a knife and ordered to murder the rival gang member. Upon hearing the captive rival's pleas through her gag, he hesitated. Although he was warned by one of the gang members that if he didn't complete the final stage of his initiation, he'd be killed. He knew too much for their liking. As a result of the pressure from his companions and fear of being murdered by those that were meant to protect him, he brutally murdered the female Mara Maquina affiliate with the knife he was provided with, slitting her throat all the way around before repeatedly plunging the knife into her chest until she stopped moving. After the murder, the ten year old was dragged into another room and viciously beaten for thirteen seconds. Edwin had earned his jump in that day. Hours later, Edwin was being comforted by one of the gang's female members while another member tattooed the initials 'MS13' onto the inside of his mouth, namely on his lower lip. He was given the nickname 'Conejo' by the gang, a reference to Edwin's appearance. Edwin operated with the Mara Salvatrucha clique he was affiliated with in Apopa for two further years. He committed several homicides throughout Apopa in the name of the Mara Salvatrucha and earned himself a reputation as a killer for the gang, despite his tender age. Also years after his jump-in to the Mara Salvatrucha, his youngest sister earned her own jump in after she assisted with the kidnapping and later, in the murder of a local informant. It wasn't long before his mother and father caught on to his gang affiliation and forcibly moved him and his sister across El Salvador to a completely different town. Although it was an ill-advised move. The neighbourhood they moved into was dominated by Mara 18. Bitter rivals of the Mara Salvatrucha that had been locked into a gang war with MS-13 since the years following the gang's forming in Los Santos during the 80's. Edwin and his younger sister managed to avoid detection by the Mara 18. Although his father, who sported facial tattoos affiliated to the Mara Salvatrucha Stoners was very quickly identified by the Mara 18 in the neighbourhood, he was publicly assassinated in front of his San Miguel home by a large group of members of the Mara 18. Afterwards, Edwin's family began being issued with endless threats, causing his mother to become extremely fearful for her life. After attempting to pay the Mara 18 members off and being raped, Jazmin decided to simply flee. She took her two remaining children and fled El Salvador for Guatemala and eventually, the United States. While Edwin was hesitant to flee his country for the United States. he eventually agreed to go with his mother. When they left. A family friend, Morena Martinez went with them, travelling with the three through Guatemala and up through Mexico. As the group travelled through Guatemala, and later through Mexico, Edwin stopped at various points throughout the country to check in with Mara Salvatrucha cliques in those areas, as he was advised to do by his shotcaller back in El Salvador.. Many times, he was ordered to do some sort of favour for the gang on his way to the US, which he did. During much of he and his family's journey through Mexico, they were accompanied by a Guatemalan MS-13 gang member who chose to guide them to the border between Mexico and the US. Upon reaching the Rio Grande River, their Mara Salvatrucha 'guide' abandoned them, choosing to stay South of the border. Instead, the trio of kids were handed over to a Coyote. They were smuggled across the river with all of their belongings in a trash-bag one by one. The teenagers and their mother were then taken into an SUV and dropped off in a nearby border town located in Texas. After arriving to his extended family in houston, Edwin, his younger sister and his friend Morena were taken in by his family on the Northern side of the border. Edwin and his sister were enrolled into a local Houston school. There they once again met Mara Salvatrucha members. Edwin quickly associated himself with the local Texas clique and was on the verge of being initiated simply for the fact that he was an MS affiliate from El Salvador. However, his initiation into the Houston offshoot of the MS-13 was cut short when his family ferried him, his sister and Morena to San Andreas, where they were to live with members of Edwin's family there. After years of being moved from neighbourhood to neighbourhood throughout San Andreas and throughout Los Santos, Edwin's family settled in South Central Los Santos. There, Edwin re-established ties to the Mara Salvatrucha after he met with members of his former Apopa clique in San Andreas. A fact that was unknown to Edwin at the time, but the MS-13 clique that he joined in El Salvador had originated in the streets of Los Santos, that clique was the Forum Locos Salvatruchas. Upon establishing ties with the Los Santos offshoot of the Forum Locos, he quickly informed them of his status as a Forum Loco in El Salvador. Due to this, Edwin and his sister very quickly rose up in the ranks of the clique. Once again simply due to the fact that their associates in the Forum Locos Salvatruchas saw them both as being more 'battle hardened' a result of the fact that they came from the slums of El Salvador. Throughout several years, Edwin performed high profile assassinations for the Mara Salvatrucha and for the Forum Locos Salvatruchas both in San Andreas, and in neighbouring states such as Texas, Arizona, Washington, Oregon and even in parts of Mexico. Although come 2018, that had stopped. Edwin was now a seasoned Mara Salvatrucha gangster. Despite the fact that he was only 18 at the time, Edwin had risen to the rank of 'Segunda Palabra (Second Word)' within his clique. Edwin Munguia became the leader of the Forum Locos Salvatruchas clique in Los Santos in the early months of 2020. He and his gang had operated for the past few years in the shadows for the most part. Edwin remained an active and relatively thoughtless member of the street gang throughout much of this time. December 2020 Turmoil struck the Forum Locos clique when a deal with a local Chicano gang went wrong. Many of the Forum Locos were murdered, causing some to go into hiding and attempt to disappear. After his childhood friend Morena Martinez went missing, Edwin was forced to step down from his leadership position in his clique when he was taken under the wing of Yadiel 'Talker' Ayala from the Palomino Locos Salvatruchas clique. Almost abandoned by his clique in South Central, Edwin began living off the grid in Little Seoul in the former territory of the PLS clique after being ordered to keep a low profile by high ranking members of the Palomino clique. This thread depicts the life and development of Edwin 'Bullet/Rabbit' Munguia, a member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang who was born and raised in Apopa, El Salvador.

  9. Born and raised in the West Side, Little Seoul, Los Santos, YADIEL AYALA aka TALKER, was exposed to the street violence, drug abuse and poverty from an younge age. Comming from a central american household, his mother being Guatemalan and his father Salvadoran, Yadiel felt the racism against hispanic community, he would see how people looked at him and his parents when they walked on the street . Even in school, there were teachers who would discriminate him for the way he looked, he dressed, for being poor and latino. This events made Yadiel to resent school, but he never tought of dropping out. Selena, his mother, who was drug addict, spending her most of the time under influence of Heroine and Oxicodone, tried to offer Yadiel a good education, but could never give up on her habits.

His father, on the other hand, a US Army Private, was an alcoholic, who would constantly abuse, both, Yadiel and Selena, being merciless when beating them up. In one night, his parents were comming from a party in South Central, Yadiel's father being drunk, ended up causing a chain accident on Calais Avenue. That night both of Yadiel's parents died, leaving the 12 years old kid an orphan. After his parents' passing, young Yadiel, has been institutionalized, Child Protective Services took him into their custody and sent him across the country, in Liberty City, where for one year he spent his life with his russian Foster parents. It was in this times, that Yadiel, became more and more violent, picking up fights in school and on the streets of Broker, LC. Seeing his behavior, his first foster parents sent him away in a CPS youth rehabilitation center. In this center, Yadiel, was, once again, marginalized for being a latino and on top that, being of South American descent. In one reported istance, in his two years inside the center, Yadiel started fight with another juvenile after he was called various racials slurs. This fight left Yadiel with a scar over his right eyebrow and a missing tooth. At 15 years old, Yadiel was sent to a foster home in Denver, Colorado, from where he later ran away, landing back again in Little Seoul, Los Santos. In Ktown, Yadiel reunited with his cousin, Antony Cardenal, also known as Ghost, a notorious MS13 member. The duo met at a gas station on Calais Avenue, where Ayala took a part time job. After a long talk, Antony advised Yadiel to get in contact with Xiomara "La Zombie" Coreas, the Shotcaller of the local Mara Salvatrucha clique. Said and done, Yadiel introduced himself, and was shortly put on the street to sell drugs for the gang. Months would pass by, Yadiel becoming more and more active in gang business, bringing more money in week by week. On one instance, after running low on cash, Yadiel accepted a contract to kill a David Smokes employee, believed to have ties with the Russian Mafia. He managed to pass the mission, being paid $50.000 by an unknown contractor. After getting the money, Yadiel, paid La Zombie $45.000, impressed by this, she then put the young teenager under observation for a couple of months, and gave him his street name Talker. After these events, after a neighbor alerted the gang of LSPD's presence in Little Seoul, Yadiel's cousin, Ghost, was arrested for armed robbery, facing a lot of years behind bars. Hearing of a potential witness in his cousin's case, Yadiel and a MS13 member, Omar "Bully" West, hunted and killed the key witness inside Rob's Liquor Store in Vespucci Canals. Ghost was soon after released from custody, and returned back in Ktown. This action impressed the MS13 shotcallers, Yadiel got jumped in the gang, becoming a member of Palomino Lokotes. Leaving LS Things took an ugly turn for both Talker, and his gang, Palomino Locos Salvatruchos. First, Yadiel has been arrested and charged with Drug Trafficking after a sting operation planned by the LSPD. He ended up serving one year in the Twin Tower Correctional Facility. Soon after his release, his gang leader, Zombie, ended up dead after a shootout with the LSPD, a death that would take a 180 degrees turn on the gang's future, a lot of the members skipping town. There is none left in the Little Seould Clique of Mara Salvatruchas except Yadiel and Zombie's husband, Bandit. The latter ending up catching a case for double murder. Seeing that everyone around him is either dead, missing or behind bars, Talker decides to skip town, himself. The 19years old went for the East Coast, hiding in Atlanta, Georgia. The comeback On the run, alone and left with no money, Talker decides, to finally make a comeback in his old neighborhood, trying to get back on his feet. (...to be continued)

Sophia was born in Little Soel; her mother arrived in Los Santos after fleeing from El Salvador a few years before Sophia was born. The W/S Mara Salvatrucha; also known as MS-13 was already established by Sophia's relatives, leading her to be born into "the life". Sophia's mother always had, and still does work multiple jobs to fund the duo, Sophia soon dropped out of school at fifteen years old- leaning more towards the streets. Eventually Sophia was brought up in the streets by her cousins Xiomara "Zombie" Coreas, and Layla "La Peligrosa" Coreas, turning to a life of crime to help her mother pay bills. Sophia was quickly exposed to the violent lifestyle of MS-13 members; for a long time Sophia struggled dealing with robbing people, and stealing etc (she always felt guilty) but her attitude soon changed once her friends and family started to end up in caskets. Sophia's good childhood friend, Meabh "La Bam Bam" Viteri was found dead in an alleyway at only fifteen years old, shot dead. Sophia's attitude towards life and the gang-culture took a full 180 turn, she'd never leave the house again without a firearm. Just weeks before the death of Meabh, Sophia's cousin Layla was brutally murdered- her killer was Xiomara who directly told Sophia that she did it. Layla was hacked to death for violating the gang-conduct- Sophia soon became rather "emotionless" when it came to committing crimes. On /04/06/2020 Sophia committed first degree murder after a rival gang member was trying to sell narcotics in Little Soel- Sophia was dying to make a name for herself. That same night Sophia was the prime suspect of another shooting, the murder of a local Korean who attacked her at the LTD Gas Station, both Sophia and Xiomara opened fire on her, leading to her death- catching two bodies in one night. Sophia, Xiomara and Lindsey "Molly-Mac" Flores, fled Los Santos in avoidance of the Los Santos Police Department. Xiomara was caught shortly after, and opened fire on multiple LSPD officers- dying at the scene, Lindsey was soon caught minutes after and charged for the shooting. Sophia currently hangs around Little Soel still, trying to lay low and get by without causing too much attention- shes lost without her real friends and family.

JOSUE 'BANDIT' ZELAYA & GABRIELLA 'FEISTY' DELGADO Overview: Josue Zelaya Josue Zelaya was born in Santa Ana, El Salvador on August 26, 1979 as the middle child of Eduardo and Maria Zelaya's four children. The Zelaya family were working class and inhabited the poorest neighborhoods of Santa Ana. The Zelayas grew up and lived during the especially violent years of the Salvadoran Civil War, during which Santa Ana was directly impacted. Most of the Zelayas fled Santa Ana during the war or were forcibly removed from the city by the military during the sporadic fighting. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, many members of Josue's immediate & extended families fled El Salvador for Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico and the United States. Those who were unable to flee the country were either conscripted into the Salvadoran Army or were forcibly re-located to the slums of San Salvador by the military. Josue Zelaya's family currently resides in El Salvador, Mexico and the United States. The majority of his family who fled El Salvador returned to the country after the Salvadoran Civil War ended in 1992. Some have remained in Mexico City, Mexico and along the American Pacific. Since 2008, a number of his 3rd to 5th cousins have legally immigrated to the United States and now live in the American Northeast. In particular, he has several cousins who live in the New York City Metropolitan Area. Early life Josue's father Eduardo Zelaya, a White Salvadoran of Italian, Spanish and French descent, was a concrete mason who got conscripted into the Salvadoran Army only five months after Josue was born. His father fought against Communist insurgents in Northwest El Salvador for several years and only sporadically returned to visit his family in Santa Ana. His father was twice wounded by direct enemy fire during the Salvadoran Civil War. Josue's mother was repeatedly sexually assaulted and raped by local criminals around their Santa Ana neighbourhood. Her husband was away in the fighting, Josue and his siblings also thankfully weren't home when the sexual assault took place and were instead roaming the war ravaged streets. In 1988, Eduardo Zelaya was discharged from the Salvadoran Army after 6 years of service. He had spent the majority of the war fighting guerrillas in rural mountainous areas as a tank crewman. He suffered from a significant amount of post-traumatic stress. He heavily drank and physically abused his family as a coping mechanism. As the Salvadoran Civil War drew to a close meanwhile, his children including Josue freely roamed in Santa Ana's urban streets together. They did this in order to escape the abusive environment within their abnormal family. They were heavily involved with criminal mischief and petty crimes such as shoplifting, thefts and robberies as teenagers. Their attended schools experienced frequent closures due to local security threats, so the children missed out on several years of education while growing up. Josue's only sister, Luisa had resorted to selling drugs in the street in order to generate an income for the family. She was only 11 years old when she started working for a neighbourhood gang. In 1989, Josue's eldest brother Diego Zelaya informed his family that he was leaving for the United States. His plan was to find employment on seasonal farms in the Midwest so that he could send money back to his family. Additionally, he entertained the idea of obtaining permanent residency and attending university in Chicago. He told his family of his plans only a week before his sudden departure. At the age of 17, he departed El Salvador and was never seen by his family again. Given how his final correspondence came in the form of a phone call from Monterrey, Mexico his family believes that he died there before reaching the US. In 1991, Eduardo Zelaya re-located his family to the United States from Santa Ana, El Salvador. He informed the US immigration authorities that his family were refugees fleeing the Salvadoran Civil War. Even though the war was starting to come to an end back in El Salvador, US immigration authorities reluctantly and quietly admitted his family into the country. This was due to the sheer processing difficulties that they had faced from the Central American migrant crisis throughout past years. Earlier in the year, Maria Zelaya died from a bathtub drowning. It was suspected by neighbours and Santa Ana police that Eduardo had killed her in the bathtub by holding her underneath the water. However, this was never proven and the police weren't willing to thoroughly investigate the death. Her death was officially recorded as an accident by the Santa Ana coroner's office. Eduardo settled in Los Santos, San Andreas with his 3 remaining children. Eduardo invited a sister and brother to the United States shortly after arriving; both siblings made the journey, but took different land routes. Similar to his son Eduardo, his brother Alejandro was never seen again after departing El Salvador. His last known location was self-reported as being in San Benito, Guatemala through a public payphone call to Los Santos, San Andreas. Alejandro had hinted to Eduardo that he had "ran into trouble" with a local criminal gang, who had attempted to forcibly confine him to the backroom of a restaurant while demanding money. The family assumed that Alejandro was eventually murdered by this criminal element. Life in the United States Josue and his siblings grew up in the Little Seoul neighborhood of Los Santos, which at the time was going through a significant demographic shift. Once a prominent Korean American area of Los Santos, the neighborhood was populated by a significant minority of Latino Americans by 1993. Therefore, many of Josue's childhood friends in the United States were Central American migrant children and Korean American street kids. The Zelayas school attendance during junior high school & high school was harshly enforced by their father Eduardo and aunt Angela. Eduardo particularly valued formal education, as access to the service was often impossible while living in wartime El Salvador. The siblings were threatened with physical abuse if they got caught not attending school by their father and aunt. Whenever it could be proven that the siblings had skipped school, they were physically attacked with household objects at home as punishment. Eduardo had whipped his children's hands with a belt and had burned cigarettes out onto their wrists as a consequence for missing school. Josue and his siblings were harshly bullied at their attended schools for their inability to speak English right away. Many of their bullies were Mexican Americans, who were only able to speak English. Being bullied by Mexican Americans caused Josue to experience a misplaced anger and hatred towards the Chicano sub-culture. These strong emotions were especially extended to Chicano criminal gangs such as the Sureños and 18th Street gang. During his final year of junior high school in 1992, Josue was jumped by members of the 18th Street gang while leaving his school grounds in Little Seoul. His backpack was stolen, with the contents being dumped down a curbside sewer drain. Upon returning home, his father entirely blamed him for the incident and he was physically beaten with a frying pan as punishment for not bringing his school books back home. As a 13 year old, Josue was strongly influenced by his older cousin Manuel Zelaya, who was a drug addicted former child soldier of the Salvadoran Army. Manuel regularly bragged to Josue about brutalizing innocent populations of indigenous villagers during the Salvadoran Civil War, who his military commanders formally accused of being Communist guerrillas at the time. He had kept numerous souvenirs from the war, including several Polaroid pictures of mutilated bodies and the limbs from some of his victims. He had kept hands and fingers preserved in alcohol-filled jars at his housing project in Little Seoul, claiming that they were his personal victims of the genocide. At the time, Manuel was working as a railyard laborer in Los Santos and was affiliated with Mara Salvatrucha in the street. Through their close relationship, Manuel was able to introduce Josue into the gang during the mid 1990s. Josue's brother and sister, however, remained uninvolved with the gang and instead became independent street criminals. Joining Mara Salvatrucha Josue was 16 years old in 1995 when he was initiated into the Mara Salvatrucha gang in Los Santos. This came after he spent years selling drugs and guns for the gang in the streets, and assisting local pimps with procuring prostitutes. He proved himself to the gang by murdering a member of a rival gang, the Playboy Sureños, by shooting him to death during a walk-up shooting. The rival gang member in question was only 14 years old and had been recently initiated into the gang himself. At the time of his gang initiation, he barely spent any time at home with his father anymore. His father was furious that he had broken away from the family home in order to join a criminal gang. His high school attendance was very low during the 1999 - 2000 school year, with him only attending 56 days out of the 180 day long year. In 1998, his father drunkenly admitted to killing Josue's mother in the home bathtub when the family were still living in El Salvador. This admission happened during a night of passive drinking inside of Eduardo's apartment in Little Seoul. A week later, Eduardo Zelaya was physically beaten and brutalized by Josue and a number of his fellow gang members. Eduardo had claimed that he came home from a bar one night, and while his mother was bathing, started an argument that ended with him holding her under the water. Josue threatened his father with death if he failed to vacate the entire state of San Andreas. Another week passed, and the Zelaya family home in Little Seoul was entirely vacant. To this day, Eduardo Zelaya's whereabouts in the United States are unknown. Josue failed high school during Grade 12. He was expelled from Syngman Rhee Memorial High School in Little Seoul for truancy, as he had only attended 38 days of the 1997 - 1998 school year. He was on the senior football team for half of the playing season, where he played as a linebacker. However, due to his poor attendance and abysmal academic achievement, he was cut from the team halfway through the season. While actively gangbanging in the streets, he worked a series of low-paying manual labor jobs. These included working inside of warehouses and at construction sites around South Los Santos. He was fired or laid off at all of these jobs for failing to show up and for poor effort at work. The longest period of legitimate employment that he experienced in his late teens was for 7 months, at a Jetsam Terminal warehouse at the Port of Los Santos. He was fired after he verbally threatened his manager with physical violence during an argument about his workplace performance. Widowed husband and state prison During the late 1990's and early 2000's, Josue was an active member of Mara Salvatrucha in Los Santos. He was involved with the gang in both Little Seoul and East Vinewood. His workforce participation was spotty, as he was regularly fired and laid off from all of his legitimate jobs. He did not possess a high school diploma and was not working towards obtaining a GED. His siblings were also involved in numerous crimes, although they were not affiliated with Mara Salvatrucha at any point. At the time of his 2008 apprehension for the homicide of Steven and Alexandra Tessier, he was one of the gang's shotcallers. He controlled the gang's narcotics production and distribution activities around the western halves of Los Santos. The Los Santos police had documented his role within the gang by 2002. He was married to Xiomara 'The Zombie' Coreas, a fellow Mara Salvatrucha member. The duo's three children, named Raissa Zelaya, Uriel Zelaya and Siria Coreas respectively were re-located to Texas after Xiomara was killed by the Los Santos police during a gunfight with the Los Santos police in 2008. With his wife's death at the hands of the Los Santos police in 2008, Josue embarked on a series of violent crimes around East Vinewood in the weeks following. These crimes started when he arrived at the scene of his wife's death and stood in the street, screaming violent threats towards the police officers who shot his wife to death. He left the scene after being threatened with arrest and criminal charges if he didn't vacate the area. He was responsible for a number of violent armed assaults and robberies around East Vinewood; he particularly targeted unarmed civilians, shopkeepers and rival gang members. His spree of violent crimes culminated with killing Steven and Alexandra Tessier, two professionals who recently arrived in Los Santos from Chicago in order to start careers as business people. They had been hacked to death in their Mirror Park home's kitchen after Josue barged in the back door. Their pet dog was grazed by the blade after it tried to defend its owners from their deaths. The couple's dog survived after receiving emergency care at a nearby veterinary hospital. He had mistaken the couple for criminals who had ripped off his paternal cousin, Melvin Bueso, several months earlier. He had acted on an incorrect address that was mistakenly provided to him by another shotcaller of the gang. Josue was convicted of his homicides at a state criminal court in 2013. His sentence was for life in prison, without the possibility of parole in 20 years. He has so far spent his sentence at numerous state prisons around San Andreas and also in numerous nearby states such as Texas and Arizona, These prisons have notably included the Bollingbroke Penitentiary and the Twin Towers Correctional Facility. He has been an affiliate of the Southside Car for several years and in the late 2010s, he was appointed the regional leader of Mara Salvatrucha. Under his leadership, he has control of the Mara Salvatrucha 13 street gang criminal organization along the American Pacific and in states that neighbour San Andreas such as Washington, Arizona, Oregon and Texas from behind bars. This came to be after he was voted in to the Mara Salvatrucha gang in San Andreas' higher leadership by Mara Salvatrucha veterans hiding from authorities in Tecate, Baja San Andreas. Bandit Zelaya is also reportedly connected to the Mara Salvatrucha's '503 Faction' due to ties that he inherited from his late wife Xiomara 'Zombie' Coreas. and also through his ties to Central America, The Mara Salvatrucha's 503 Program is a sub-faction of the Mara Salvatrucha that carries a great pride in upholding the values of Salvadoran Nationalism and adherence to MS-13's more violent roots. They are alleged to operate in Central America, Honduras, parts of Mexico to a much lesser extent along with the American states of Texas and San Andreas, where they're reportedly absorbed into MS-13 cliques located in America. Josue Zelaya is currently housed on the Level 4 yard of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility. If he is ever released from prison, then he will likely be spending the remainder of his life on parole. This thread will document the life, development and exploits of my character Josue Zelaya a/k/a Lil Bandit as he operates in the San Andreas prison system as an active MS-13 gang veteran.
  13. MARA SALVATRUCHA MARA SALVATRUCHA HISTORY Mara Salvatrucha, known throughout Los Santos as the West Side (W/S) Mara Salvatrucha 13 (MS-13) is a predominantly Central American street gang formed in Los Santos, San Andreas during the late 1970's. The criminal gang was formed in the now-gentrified Little Seoul neighbourhood of Westside Los Santos. Criminal groups of Central American refugees were first documented by the Los Santos police in 1982. The criminal gang grew from the undocumented Central American population throughout the 1980s, and by 1988, had became an established gang in the United States. In the decades since its inception, the Mara Salvatrucha have grown from being a ragtag group of marijuana-smoking heavy metal enthusiasts into a transnational criminal enterprise. The first community, or barrio, for Central Americans in Los Santos was formed in Little Seoul. At the time, Little Seoul was an impoverished neighbourhood of Westside Los Santos with a predominant Latino and Asian demographic. It had not yet undergone any gentrification and had a reputation for its high rates of violent gang activity. Although Little Seoul's first Salvadoran barrio was established in 1979, other similar barrios were formed elsewhere in West Los and Vinewood during the decade. The first community leaders for these barrios were refugees and economic migrants who left El Salvador during the civil war. Legal entities and other organizations were created in the communities, by Latino Americans, to help their immigrant counterparts with settling into the country. Because many of the Salvadorans in particular were refused asylum upon entering the United States, they were classified as illegal immigrants. Throughout the decade because of this, more Central Americans from the Northern Triangle nations came to the United States without any documentation. Ethnic conflicts in the streets between Central Americans and the already established Mexican Americans quickly became commonplace. This was due to the incompatible cultural differences between the Central Americans and the Chicano sub-culture. In particular, Salvadorans were widely discriminated against by Mexican Americans through being denied local jobs, experiencing physical removals from community association centers and getting harassed while peacefully living in their neighbourhoods. These cultural differences resulted in ethnic clashing between Central Americans and Mexican Americans over a period of several years, encompassing much of the 1980s and parts of the 1990s. Many of these clashes came in the form of street brawls and violent crimes involving edged weapons and firearms. Criminal elements within the Salvadoran community in particular, later identified as the Mara Salvatrucha Stoners by the Los Santos police, were found to be responsible for instigating much of these violent clashes. Although the Mara Salvatrucha Stoners had originated as a criminal gang of juvenile delinquents with an interest in heavy rock music and consuming cannabis, it had morphed into a brutally vicious and violent gang by the end of the 1980s. This barbarity was borne out of their clashes with Chicanos in the streets, where they brought their experiences as insurgents in the Salvadoran Civil War with them. In the early 1990s, the Mara Salvatrucha in Los Santos fell under the leadership of a former Salvadoran Army special forces soldier, Mario Villatoro. Mario brought his military experiences from the civil war to train and discipline the gang. This ex-military influence lead some investigators from the Los Santos police and FBI to theorize that Salvadoran state actors were responsible for the gang's early growth, although these theories have never been proven. Around the same time period, the leaders of both Mara Salvatrucha and the 18th Street gang had a falling-out over unknown criminal matters. The resulting effect caused a bitter rivalry and street war between the two gangs that still exists today. Previously, Mara Salvatrucha and 18th Street were friendly towards each other because they both allowed Central Americans to join and were largely non-discriminatory. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, hostilities in the Northern Triangle countries in Central America came to a close. The civil wars in El Salvador and Guatemala were finished and the Sandinistas defeated the American-backed government of Nicaragua. With some stabilization happening as a result, the US government began deporting convicted Central American criminals back to their countries after they finished their state prison sentences. Many of the deportees were gang members from the Mara Salvatrucha and 18th Street gangs. When these deportees returned to their countries, they formed their gangs there and rapidly rose throughout the criminal underworld. These large-scale deportations began after the Salvadoran Civil War ended in 1992. Eventually, criminals stopped being the only ones targeted by federal immigration authorities, and raids were conducted in urban communities in Los Santos. Many law-abiding illegal immigrants, who lived in the United States for several years, were deported throughout the 1990s. Prior to these waves of Central American deportations, the Northern Triangle nations did not have significant problems with gangs or organized crime. The re-building process following their civil wars and revolutions were fertile grounds for criminal gangs and other organized crime elements during the 1990s. Mara Salvatrucha adopted its modern form during the late 1990s, when it had already spread throughout multiple districts and neighborhoods of Los Santos. The gang had also departed from San Andreas for other regions of the United States, such as the Western, Southwest and Northeast states. Central American communities around the United States began seeing Mara Salvatrucha presences, and this included power-bases in places such as Washington D.C. and East Island City, LC. The gang continued growing and becoming worse throughout Latin America, eventually expanding to Mexico by the 2000s. At this point, the gang effectively became an international criminal enterprise. THE MARA SALVATRUCHA TODAY As of the early 21st century, the Mara Salvatrucha are a transnational criminal organization. They are active in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central America. Allegedly, they have criminal contacts in Western Europe, North Africa and as faraway as Australia. In Canada, the gang has been documented by the Toronto Police Service since 2008. The gang is said to also be criminally operating in Montreal, Quebec. Within the United States in particular, Mara Salvatrucha has lost a significant amount of influence in San Andreas over the past decade. However, they have been strengthened in the American Northeast. In particular, the police in Washington D.C., Maryland and Liberty City have had extreme difficulties with combating the gang. The gang has garnered the attention of mainstream American politics during the 2016 US federal election, as they were targeted by Donald Trump as a part of his election campaign. Calls for harsh crackdowns on the gang, especially in the East Island City neighbourhood, have came from both the general public and the Republican voter-base. These actions are supported by people who want a tough-on-crime approach to justice in the United States, but many immigration advocates and even Mara Salvatrucha itself has cautioned that these measures will make matters worse for Salvadorans living in the country. The Mara Salvatrucha are notorious for their barbaric brutality in their diabolical personal pleasures. Its members are infamous for their usage of knives, machetes and hatchets to physically assault, murder, torture and mutilate their gangland enemies. They are feared throughout the urban and suburban areas of Los Santos for their involvement in violent sexual crimes that include sexual assaults and rapes. The gang's members have a well documented history of sexually assaulting and raping members of the general public within their homes, private businesses and other open areas. However, some do not fear the Mara Salvatrucha but instead hate and despise it. Some gangs in Los Santos, such as the Playboy Sureños (PBS) and the Harpys (HPS), have waged street wars against the gang for the sake of weakening their influences across the city. This was allegedly ordered by incarcerated members of various prison gangs in the state, but this hasn't been proven by law enforcement authorities. Other gangs under the umbrella of the Sureños and 18th Street gang have co-operatively worked to take up former Mara Salvatrucha territories once they suffer losses as a result of these street wars. Throughout Mexico, the Mara Salvatrucha are contracted by Mexican drug cartels as muscle for their efforts during the ongoing Mexican Drug War against the Mexican government, federal police and military. These Mara Salvatrucha members who act as muscle for the Mexican drug cartels go out of their way to be as bloody and barbaric as possible. Horror beyond what was seen in Los Santos in the 1980s and 1990s and what continues to be seen for that matter is created by Mara Salvatrucha members acting on behalf of drug cartels in Mexico.
