  2. If I die and you forget my name I won't cast no shadow, I won't throw no shade And if I never get to walk along no hall of fame It won't bother me none because I'm in, I'm in my own lane Childhood Lucien Berjouhie was born and raised in Los Santos, within the Morningwood area, colloquially referred to often as 'Little Armenia' due to the large ethnic population of Armenians. He was a first child, having an younger brother named Mikayel. The two grew up to be close and always attempted to look out for each other. Lucien's parents were considered a relatively decent couple. They were second-generation ethnic Armenians from a high-class background whose parents moved to the United States to escape the violence and ethnic conflicts between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Their father taught both boys how to hunt in the woods once a month, with Lucien's dad being an avid outdoorsman, which he expressed through his hobbies of going on hikes, trails, hunting, and fishing. He always tried to include his sons, and he was a role model to the duo growing up. Furthermore, his father owned a prominent real estate company inside the city and dealt with houses around the city after work hours during the afternoon and evening hours. When the boys reached the age of 16, they began to assist their parents in the family business. They were tasked with cleaning the establishment, doing the paperwork, and general care of the place. The work might not have been challenging, but it gave them an understanding of work-related responsibilities and fundamentals. Within Little Armenia, their company was situated in one of the more high-income areas bordering Del Perro, which often saw an increased number of apartments and houses. His father maintained a conservative and traditionalist background and was polite and well-spoken. As a result of how he was raised and his great respect for those in the business sector, Lucien always considered becoming a businessman himself. Little Armenia, Los Santos, started as a bore. Lucien woke up expecting it to be any other day and went about his daily routine of waking up, showering, brushing his teeth, and getting ready for school. Lucien was eating a great bowl of cereal and staring out the window of his bedroom where he had the perfect view of his neighbor's window where he watched her getting ready for her daily routine too. She kept looking at Lucien and made no effort to close the blinds, so there was no worry about being called a creep. He finished up and went downstairs to see his father. "Another house sold successfully." That was how his dad greeted him. "Good morning to you too, dad," Lucien replied while adjusting his tie. Their home was located in the middle of Del Perro, an exceptionally well-built home since Lucien's family thrived purely through his father's successful real estate company. Lucien waited next to the bus stop for his friends to come to pick him up for school, and when the little beat-up car sped around the corner straight towards the bus stop, Lucien's eyes widened, and a grin began to grow along his face upon seeing Adam and Gracie inside. Lucien conversed with his friends in the car while they were driving out to the countryside. "Nah fuck school today. I'm not up for it. I got liquor. I got cards, and I got weed. Plus there's a campsite just outside the city. Already got my brother to change the attendance record for the day so nobody will even notice." Once Adam brought Lucien up to speed, all Lucien could do was nod and smile. Gracie climbed over the back seat to sit next to Lucien, so he sat and twiddled with her auburn hair doing nothing but smiling, much to the dismay of Adam. Lucien stopped playing with Gracie's hair for a moment, and his eyes stuck to the car's window. He was looking at a huge sign with a Sheriff's Department advertisement on it. Eventually, the trio parked the car. They began to make their way through the forest outskirts of the Paleto. Walking along an uncommon trail, they intended to get lost. They wanted to get lost from everything and everyone so that they could enjoy themselves. The sun was already setting by the time they even reached the forest. The trio continued making their way through the woods and found a lovely spot next to a stream where they began to set up camp. Adam and Gracie went off to find the right kind of firewood as they had put it, and Lucien was left alone in the makeshift camp. He just sat there for a while watching the dirt, and moving it with his hand every so often while awaiting them. An hour later, the two returned, and the group started to play cards while drinking and smoking. They spoke of what they want to do with their lives and what will happen after they graduate. Lucien kept winning while drinking from his bottle. He had a unique talent for cards and was almost able to remember them perfectly. The night was young, though the group talked the evening through until everyone eventually fell asleep. In the morning, they drove back home and returned to their lives with more goals set. The wrong side Lucien had a good friend around the city named Karmien, who introduced him to a group of people from the dark side of town. He liked them and how they managed to handle everything with power and authority instead of just the power of money. Lucien was used to the corporate life that his father was having and knew what it was like to have fun and make money, but he wanted to know more. Hanging around with Karmien and his friends more, and without noticing, Lucien started to learn how criminals handled themselves in the streets. While he stayed out of trouble, he saw how they conducted and managed a more "seedy side" of business. He did not understand it at first. Why beat the guy up when you can offer him a deal? I guess not everyone knows how to do business, and sometimes the stick is more potent than anything. Both Lucien and his friends agreed that he should stay out of that stuff and remain clean. There was no advantage in him getting a criminal record. The group used to go out for bars with fake IDs and gamble in local bars. During that time, Lucien found he had a unique talent for blackjack and poker. He made small amounts of money from playing, and the group later went to buy booze and get drunk with the money he made. He enjoyed being around these guys more than his friends in school. They weren't dull and always had something to do. He gave them his word that he would always have their backs once he finished school like they had his. Growing up Mikayel applied and got enlisted into the United States Marine Corps and Lucien indulged in higher education, becoming a student at San Andreas University. Lucien's main goal was to start at university and see what it can offer. He managed to achieve relatively good grades in the classes he took and managed to keep up with all the paperwork given to him by his lectures, at least when he wasn’t drinking and partying with his friends on campus. Lucien studied Business Administration for three years and after that took a few extra courses in Arbitration. His plan was to finish his studies and start his own company that fits him. During his last few months at the university, he had a long conversation with his favorite lecturer that explained to him more about what potential career options are waiting for him out there. When Lucien finished his studies, his father passed away from a heart attack. Since Mikayel was serving, everything their father owned was managed and run by Lucien. Their mother refused to take anything and wanted Lucien to take over his father's business. His father's money, companies, and contacts all went straight to him, and while he respected his father's work, Lucien knew that just as he finished his studies, he would do things his way. He noticed that one of the businesses was a warehouse around La Mesa. It had a small gated yard in the back, and the warehouse was rather big. With the money left by his father, Lucien purchased a cleaning crew and new furniture for the warehouse, making it a brand new casino on the inside. He started to open the place in the late hours and slowly made a name for himself. While Lucien had a master's degree in Business Administration he still lacked the experience, he saw the money opportunity in it. Mainly, he did what he does best, which is business politics and getting his casino more familiarized with the area. Moving up 15 years have passed, and Lucien became very well known around the city. He was given the nickname "Euro" by his friends that used to work around with handles only instead of their government names, and his partners started to call him that as well. He had many failed relationships during the years and that ruined his motivation from time to time yet he kept going. Euro Den kept opening and the business was doing great yet the Government wasn't happy with the size of the business and gave him a lot of troubles. Lucien decided that it's time to move to a bigger location where he could have more things in his casino. The Den hosted a Poker table and Blackjack tables and a strip club at the ground floor. It was time for a change and Lucien started to sit down with his staff and discuss what the future casino would look like, from Roulette tables to car raffles he sat down and planned it all with his staff and when a building was decided on he sent the papers. Months passed and Lucien finally moved with his staff to Vinewood Casino. Business & Gambling Euro Den became a success for Lucien and money slowly came in with each opening. The amounts that came from the tables were rather decent as the place kept bringing a lot of people in each opening. The gambling life of the city was active and people filled the tables. Lucien kept studying and getting more experience each night. Lucien worth grew with time and he knew not to spend as his plans to grow bigger only started, he kept saving the money he earned from the table profits on the side. 13 years have passed, and Lucien became very well known around the city. He was given the nickname "Euro" by his friends that used to work around with handles only instead of their government names, and his partners started to call him that as well. He had many failed relationships during the years and that ruined his motivation from time to time yet he kept going. Euro Den kept opening and the Euro Den was doing great yet the Government wasn't happy with the size of the business and gave him a lot of troubles. Lucien decided that it's time to move to a bigger location where he could have more things in his casino. The Den hosted a Poker table and Blackjack tables and a strip club at the ground floor. It was time for a change and Lucien started to sit down with his staff and discuss what the future casino would look like, from Roulette tables to car raffles he sat down and planned it all with his staff and when a building was decided on he sent the papers. After months of liaison, meetings, and confirmations the papers for the Vinewood Casino finally came through. Time came for Lucien to sit down his staff and bring forward the news for a new beginning for everyone, and with this came the task of moving supplies as well as furniture to the new casino. It took a month for Berjouhie and his team to go over the plans for Vinewood Casino and what would be required for the grand opening in way of stock, staff, security, and events. When the night came for the grand opening nerves were on high for everyone with anticipation of whether or not such an event would work. Would another Casino be welcomed? Would there be a warm welcoming in the heart of Vinewood? From the beginning of the night to the end it was evident to patrons and employees that the opening of Vinewood Casino was a great success. Photographers gave people the red carpet treatment, security staff held utmost professionalism alongside a warm welcome, and bartenders and dealers were ecstatic about their role in the new facility. The grand opening collected 3.1 million at profit and maintained 2.7 million after all staff were paid for their hard work. With great success Vinewood Casino became, and remains, one of the most luxurious casinos in the state with each opening making a profit between 1.5 to 2.5 million. Lucien’s financial state had become very healthy. His reputation in the gambling industry became well known over time with the success of Banner Casino and would quickly spread between businessmen. With newfound business partners Lucien learned of a new casino that was being built within Liberty City, a place which lacked in the gambling scene. The city was a prime location for Lucien to visit where his brother resided and was ever ecstatic to see Lucien and became an opportunity to Lucien to visit more often alongside business means. A few meetings later with the board of directors for Banner Casino and Resort and he became a small shareholder in the casino as well as part of the board of directors. His evident experience in the gambling industry made him one of the noted professionals of the board and soon enough he was given the opportunity to oversee the casino openings. He took the time to learn more about the casino such as their hotel routines, the patrons of the casino, staff members, and external partners. Despite the success of the casino months passed by and the board became thinner where members of the board sold their shares to begin life anew elsewhere. In holding the most experience as well as being a present member of the Casino Lucien bought the shares from the leaving shareholders and became the prime shareholder of the casino. In a matter of time he became the acting CEO of the board, and although the process was difficult with such a change but it became a change for the better for the staff and patrons. Euro Enterprises is a company whose main focus is the Gambling Industry across Los Santos and Liberty City. With what began as one casino run by a small team has now become a large operation with a strong board of directors, a team of supervisors, and an abundance of casino staff in various positions to help. Within Euro Enterprises stands Vinewood Casino, our primary casino of Los Santos which was taken over by Lucien Berjouhie in August 2022. Following the success of this casino came work with Banner Resort and Casino in November 2022, and while things began with a small team they have expanded greatly with thanks to Euro Enterprises. Berjouhie spent time in aiding the casino with their success and not only became a primary partner, but too a pillar of the company who branched beneath Euro Enterprises. He became the acting CEO for Banner Resort and Casino and in turn became the sole provider of employment for their openings with covering transportation fees, advertisements within Liberty City and Los Santos, and training the current staff within Euro Enterprises to also manage the casino in Liberty City. In becoming an influential Chariman and seeing the succession of Euro Enterprises in the gambling industry the company was quick to grow in strength to secure a team of directors. Within that team we see public relations, human resources, marketing, security, and management of staff with executives, administrators and supervisors. Life Goes On When it came down to Lucien’s personal life he often indulged in the company of friends and women who wanted nothing more than lustful moments of his time. Failed relationships were ever present and he had near enough given into a future of what was merely business without expectation of companionship. Upon venturing work within Liberty City he began a friendship with Odette Fontaine who at the time held the position of personal assistant to management. It did not take long for their friendship to blossom into something more and eventually found himself spending his free time with the woman. Days turned to weeks where they had little want for leaving each other’s side and slowly those weeks turned to months where he realised true companionship was an opportunity with Odette. In the moments of what looked like the fall of Banner casino with an overhaul of management Lucien found Odette at his side through everything and was quick to seal the deal of a future with her. Plans came into place for marriage, for children, for a life together and with that came talks of a home. The pair came to a mutual vow of working toward a better life at each other’s side and within that came want for residency where they could raise their future family. They knew that an apartment was not an adequate place and a small home for what they had planned would not suffice either. In tying together their budgeting plans they came to the agreement of searching for a larger home to match their lavish lifestyle and want for a large family. Lucien's journey in the gambling industry had been marked by relentless ambition and strategic moves. His rise within Euro Enterprises had been nothing short of remarkable, transforming a single casino into a thriving empire across Los Santos and Liberty City. It was under his leadership that Vinewood Casino became a standout success and his collaboration with Banner Resort and Casino had reaped significant rewards. As the acting CEO of Banner Resort and Casino, Lucien had not only become a prominent partner but a central figure within Euro Enterprises. With his guidance, the casino's staff were trained to perfection, advertising campaigns were meticulously executed, and transportation logistics were seamless. The once struggling establishment had flourished under his watchful eye. Euro Enterprises, now a powerhouse in the gambling industry, had attracted a team of dedicated directors who oversaw various aspects of the business, from public relations to security. Lucien's vision had turned the company into a formidable force, dominating the casino scene in both cities. However, life had another surprise in store for Lucien. An unexpected opportunity emerged, one that would further solidify his status as a titan in the gambling world. Richard Farace, a fellow entrepreneur, approached Lucien with a proposal to merge their respective enterprises and create something extraordinary: the Diamond Casino and Resort. Recognizing the potential of this partnership, Lucien made the daring decision to close down Euro Enterprises and join forces with Farace. They became the dynamic board of directors behind the Diamond Casino and Resort, a colossal establishment that would soon dominate the city's gambling landscape. Under their joint leadership, the Diamond Casino and Resort became an unparalleled success. It boasted a level of luxury and entertainment that captivated both locals and tourists. The synergy between Lucien's expertise and Farace's business acumen proved to be a winning formula. As the years passed, Lucien Berjouhie's name became synonymous with opulence and success in the world of gambling. His journey from a single casino owner to a shareholder in the Diamond Casino and Resort was a testament to his unwavering determination and strategic brilliance. Lucien has been using his H1 hummer for years and due to him being a recognizable figure around the city, people recognized his very unique truck easily which sometimes gave him issues.
  3. In that thread the development of Larry Adams a passionate business man will be posted. The main goal for that character is to become a famous business man or to become a well known lawyer that wants to start his own law firm. I will try my best to post related screenshots. However, I don't know what kind of screenshots that will be more relative to thread, but I will post the general development of the character to become a lawyer or a business man.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gp5JCrSXkJY&list=PLCGcelpRfnj6NvkwlP1SD15Dlu6N-MvIj&index=3 Name: Angel Marsini D.O.B: 12/09/1998 P.O.B: New York City, NY Angel Marsini, born in New York City, was a hired assailant in various crimes involving multiple organizations, including that of the Colombo Crime Family, as well as a small faction of Armenian-based terrorists. His current location is unknown, due to cut ties with said Colombo Family due to internal affairs. His criminal activity spanned from vandalism to first-degree murder, with several years of prison time under his belt. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York to both a loving father and mother, although later on the skeletons in their closets would be revealed to their son. Angel was a roughneck child, who loved to work and be active. He was on various sports teams from his middle school years to his high school years, earning multiple awards and titles as of it. But with the good, came the bad, as Angel was more or less a “kingpin” in school, in which he involved himself in the contribution of Cannabis, or more vaguely known to people as Marijuana or “Weed”, as well as the contraband of it as well, within school walls. On multiple occasions did Angel get caught in the act, but he cared little, as he was also moving it outside of school as well. His supplier was a member of the Colombo Crime Family, although this business wasn’t of the Colombo Family’s, as this unknown member was using this as a side-business to stack cash for other situations. Angel would receive 35% of whatever he had gotten from selling, giving the 65% to this stranger. During the latter years of his High School career, both his mother and father would have overdosed on Methamphetamine, due to years of usage whilst caring for Angel. After eventually graduating from High-School, Angel was losing stock in this Marijuana business, in which his supplier was already planning for, as later on, he would be introduced to the art and trade of racketeering. Angel at the age of 20, took charge, alongside other members of the Colombo Family, of a small faction of the ILA Union. A few months later though, various members of the family were arrested and charged on various crimes, but the latter of them being charged in Labor-Racketeering. Angel however wasn’t caught, as the day this bust had happened, Angel was upstate on a “mission” from the Colombo Family, in which he was to apprehend files from a buyer of unknown origin, or atleast to Angel. It was revealed soon that this unknown group was a small group of Armenian terrorists, which acquired files from a larger organization that has ties with La Cosa Nostra. After Retrieving these said files, Angel would return to Brooklyn, hearing news beforehand of the bust, in which he would pack his things and leave New York City, heading towards Los Santos, in which he would stay to lie low for some time, hearing of other members of the Colombo family in Angelo Sisca Jr. and Paul Longo were already there, each with their own operations as well. As for Angel, this meant starting from scratch, but nothing he hasn’t done beforehand. As of now, no one knows of Angel’s whereabouts, although more than likely, he is heading directly to Los Santos to lay low, but for now, it is unknown.
  5. Maxim Yahontov DoB: 03/11/1984 Place of Birth: Med Tsentr “Kavkaz”, Chechnya Nationality: Chechen Early Life: Maxim was born in 1984 in the town of Gudermes in Chechnya. He was an only child, raised by his Mother Khava and his Soldier Father Anzor. The Chechen republic was a tough place to grow up in, filled with struggle and hardships, but his mother and father did the best they could for Maxim. His father being a soldier, taught Maxim Discipline and Respect and how to defend himself whenever he was around. Maxim always had food in front of him and clothes on his back despite the hard times, albeit rugged. He did well in school in his early years, having an affinity for numeracy and money. He mostly kept to himself and focused on his work. He was always a driven boy, trying to impress his father and walk in his footsteps. Crime was prevalent in his hometown even before the war. But like so many others the war changed his life. During the first Chechen war for independence, his father was killed in action, leaving only Maxim and his mother, before his father left, he said to him “My son you are the man of the family while I am gone, look after your mother for me”. Since then, Maxim strived to do better, to do whatever it takes to look after his mother, she was all he had left. Chechen Soldiers: Chechen War 1994-1996 Teenage Years: After the war had ended in 1996 Maxim was 12 years old, the horrors of the war had left him scarred, his town ruined, his father died, and his mother bitter. Since his father’s passing his mother hadn’t been the same, she became closed and scornful. She couldn’t look at Maxim the same way, Maxim never understood why but none the less she was his mother, and he had vowed to himself to protect her. Once the country returned to some sort of normality Maxim returned to school, trying his best so he can provide for himself and his mother. Financially Maxim and his mother were not doing well, as the weeks went on money became more and more of an issue. In school, he heard of some kids making extra money doing odd jobs for someone called “The scrapper”. Deciding that he needed to take matters into his own hands to put food on the table he approached one of his peers asking about the jobs, after chatting for some time the other boy asked him to tag along and see what it was about. The jobs consisted of going around the derelict and destroyed parts of the town and scavenging any metal that was left behind from the war, including building materials, former military weaponry/machine parts. The catch was that they had to avoid the police and military patrols in the area if not they would be punished extensively for trespassing. His first time out with the group went well, after that he was hooked on doing more and more odd jobs for “The Scrapper”. His only motivation was the scraps of cash he received for the jobs, Maxim never saw it as bad, just a means to an end. His mother never questioned where the money came from, she didn’t care, no matter what Maxim did she never thanked him, she never really even acknowledged him, just fed him, watered him, and left him to his own devices. Hellbent on fulfilling his father’s wishes he never thought twice about the way she treated him, he just got on with it. As Maxim got older and the more jobs he did for “The Scrapper” the more he was recognised and rewarded for his work. When Maxim was 19 “The Scrapper” asked to have a meeting with Maxim and discuss what he called “Career Opportunities”. Learning that Maxim was good with numbers and money he offered him a job as an accountant of sorts, running the books for his scrapping business and other activities. Maxim considered the position not knowing what rabbit hole it would lead him down, but the pay was too good to turn up, he hesitantly accepted, and “The Scrapper” put him to work. Police Sketch from Eyewitnesses of "The Scrapper" Adult Life: Running and making the books for “The Scrapper” became his full-time job, he didn’t know the man’s real name until he was 24, but even still he never cared much for his real name, Maxim always called him Scrapper and that was that. Maxim worked under Scrapper for years, helping him grow his business and watching it sprout roots into other industries like Insurance, Loans, and even building development. Of course, each of these business ventures had an anterior motive, however, Maxim never cared about the moral choices, all he cared about was results and profits, much to Scrapper’s delight. But like all tall and proud structures, at some point in time, they will begin to crumble. Maxim never really knew Scrapper’s age, but he could see him getting old, the older Scrapper got the looser his grip was physically and metaphorically speaking. His businesses started to become sloppy, his choices less calculated, and his judgment more clouded. Police inquiries were becoming more frequent, beat cops became men in suits flashing badges, things were starting to go bad. The decline was slow and steady at first, but Maxim could see it in the figures, he saw the ship was slowly sinking and decided he would not go down with it. Thinking only for himself and his mother, who now was getting old herself, he began secretly hiding cash away, stealing small portions from each business, and rigging the books to make it look legit. As soon as the ship was about to go under, he would take a step back and watch it sink from the shore. Of course, this was no easy feat, working so closely with Scrapper meant that eyes would also be on him, when he left, he had to vanish, but then he thought about his mother, she couldn’t disappear. Thinking back on how his mother had treated him the last 30 years she treated him like he was invisible anyway, he decided he could look after her from afar, not as if she would notice anyway. It took a few years for the police to crack down on Scrapper’s empire, during this time Maxim carefully articulated his escape plan, slowly depositing his stolen money into an offshore account, acquiring a fake ID to cross the border into Georgia then fly overseas from there. His plan worked, he left a note to his mother along with some cash stating that he will send more whenever he can, he was out of the country before Scrapper was even arrested. He felt like he should have said goodbye to Scrapper, after all they had worked together for nearly 20 years, but despite this, Maxim never really cared much for the man, only the work and money he provided. Maxim fled to the states, more specifically Los Santos where he used the money to set himself up for a quiet but comfortable life, he thought of it as an early retirement of sorts, after all, he had worked hard his whole life. Image of the mentioned stolen Cash. Present Day: Maxim is 37 years of age now, he has been living in Los Santos for nearly a year now, the first few months were bliss, and he enjoyed his “retirement”, spending days at the beach, going to the gym, sending money back to his mother every couple of weeks along with a letter asking how she was doing. The money was always received but he never ever got a letter in return. After nearly 5 months of living in the states, each day was becoming the same, there was no excitement, no variety just living. Maxim decided he needs to start doing something again, but what he decides remains to be seen…
