Melina Josefina Barriga Almanza is a 36 year old Mexican National drug trafficker, originally from the city of Culiacán in Sinaloa. Melina had a relatively loving childhood whilst growing up from her parents, although her father and uncles being involved in the narcotics game eventually changed her. She went to the Technological University of Culiacán, in Sinaloa and graduated from there with a bachelor's degree. After graduating from the university with a bachelor's degree, her father decided to use her for white collar related crimes at first, where she was sent to San Andreas; primarily operating out of San Diego and Los Santos at the time on behalf of the AFO; although this would later see her split and become independent. During the early stages of Melina's involvement with the narco underworld, she ran point on laundering money for the AFO through the cryptocurrency exchange; often interacting with the Border Brothers 22 as they would often be used to push the AFO's product into the state of San Andreas, primarily San Diego and Los Santos as distribution hubs. Although a few years into her line of work, Melina had already gathered a small sized crew of financial operators to roll with her; often helping her run these activities. But as the years progressed, her temptation for more made her go the extra mile and she ended up outsourcing a drug connect for herself. By the age of 26, Melina would see herself as an independent drug trafficker with a small tight knit crew of individuals that often operated as a shadow group under the banner of other American based Organized Crime Groups (OCGs) and also ended up marrying with one of her father's people who split, and joined forces with Melina. Through the age of 26 to 28, Melina and her crew operated as independents without pledging full allegiance to any other major criminal organization, often travelling between Arizona and San Andreas for business and Baja California where she had permanently resided when not on business duties. Although by the time Melina was 28, herself and her husband had already filed for a divorce as their relationship and romance levels significantly dropped overtime with both of them rarely ever being home. Melina had found herself in Los Santos for a consistent 2 month period after some of her people and Alex Farizano had lost a lot of weight on a drug shipment coming in, this led to a down spiral within two months where Melina's operation became very janky and unreliable for a period of time, during this time period Melina and Alex had found themselves settling in with one of many Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTOs) in the city known as La Coka Nostra at the time; linking up with individuals such as "Payday" Bana, "Corleone" Farese and "Vandal" Gutierrez, but towards the end of that two month period; La Coka Nostra had somewhat became defunct and went completely ghost, with some of their associates not even knowing what happened to each other. Due to this, Melina and her crew were once again considered independent drug traffickers and went back on a tit-for-tat hop, continuing to outsource connects to keep her narcotics business alive, which eventually worked out well in the end. Upon one of Melina's many trips back to Los Santos, her cousin; Marina Mendez now known by her marriage name; Marina Cardona, met up with Melina which resulted in Melina deciding to align herself to Marina and Lucas's network, bringing her crew of narco traffickers along for the ride. This resulted in Melina and her crew being no longer considered independent again, as Melina had decided to accept Marina's offer, becoming Marina's right hand. Eventually as time went on, Melina settled back into Los Santos again with her crew known as: La Empresa (The Enterprise). Individuals such as "El Diablo" Baro, "La Catrina" Escobedo, "El Nacho" Ruiz, "El Rafa" Reyes and "El Cabal" Cabal came to settle in with Melina in Los Santos. A few weeks after settling in, in Los Santos... Hernan Orozco a/k/a "El Oro" and Miro Cardenas a/k/a "Tank" had came out to San Andreas from Arizona after an internal feud gone wrong had happened; being long-standing business partners with Melina, they settled somewhere in the state of San Andreas and eventually aligned themselves under The Enterprise.
Twenty-three years ago, Ramon Araiza came into the world, born in Chamberlain Hills, just three years before his mother’s passing. Ramon spent most of his childhood accompanied by his friends, all of whom had a major interest in gang banging, however this was not Ramon's ideal route to success, which had later changed. Ramon slowly disembarked from his original friend group and instead focused on methods to which he could earn money, whether it be for sweets at the local 24/7 to marijuana from the local dealers within the complex he lived in. Ramon, in 7th grade, fell into an addiction with heroin, a main spread drug throughout his neighborhood. While most of his other friends focused on academics, he completely flunked out in high school and was sent to a continuous school due to his short temper. Ramon did eventually complete his last year in high school, to which he was awarded a High School Diploma. Whilst college was his family’s preference for him, Ramon instead went to work in his grandfather’s shop which he used as a cover for selling stolen goods that he’d take from vehicles and small houses within the neighborhood.
