The Black Viper Society (Hēi dúshé shèhuì) Chinese crime organizations outside of China can vary in size and flexibility in operation and structure, including syndicates, triads, tongs, and gangs. Most organizations based out of China have links to mainland figures or previously mentioned groups, establishing connections and relationships to strengthen and mutually supply one another. These groups participate in a wide variety of crimes, including human trafficking, drug and arms smuggling, financial and other white-collar crimes, extortion, gambling, prostitution, and other violent crime. Chinatown, a small corner of Los Santos flourishing in all aspects of life in the city has had a heavy presence of organized crime since its founding. Immigrants flocking to the area for a sense of security and familiarity, Chinese American Association's founded on the principles of keeping together a strong community, falling to the grips of organized crime. Eventually becoming legal fronts for these groups, through money laundering, fraud, and other white-collar financial schemes. Over time several organizations have found themselves occupying the area and carrying out their business, whether legal or illegal in the area. With the recent power vacuum left behind in Los Santos Chinatown in the wake of major players being taken down either by gangland killings or arrests, with a major group now out of play and a vacancy left in the area, The Black Viper Society stepped in with an attempt to establish a new powerhouse to fill this role and gain from it throughout the process. Serpents are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. In the process of shedding their skin, they are renewing their life to continue prospering, leaving behind their past dead self, and starting anew. As with founding members of this organization, adaptation is a must, having been crippled previously in their former group these individuals have shed their skin to start again. The Black Viper Society is a new group that is founded in Los Santos, members mostly being Chinese individuals partaking in criminal activities for their own benefit. A group brought up on traditional values such as respect for their elders and brotherhood, wherein the veterans teach the newly recruited members the ways expected of them as they are slowly introduced into the secretive group.
