  1. MURRIETA VALLEY SKINHEADS A/K/A MVSH A/K/A HATE VALLEY A/K/A DEATH VALLEY East Los' Murrieta Valley a/k/a "The Valley" to natives has always been a hotspot and breeding ground for white power gangs. From the early 2000s to present day, numerous groups have sprouted up including Death Valley Skinheads a/k/a DVS, COORS (Comrades Of Our Racial Struggle), and more recently Murrieta Valley Skin heads a/k/a MVSH. Law enforcement officials state that the high drug usage and low-income statistics in the area are the reason these groups gain a foothold in the area. Young misguided youth see the previous generations and view them as role-models and heroes. Crimes reported vary from drug trafficking, drug manufacturing, weapons trafficking, fraud and vehicle theft. Heroin and methamphetamine is rampant at the Valley, Caucasian and Hispanic families are decimated due to these narcotics. Over the course of ten years, officials state that over 100 properties in the Valley region have been raided, seizing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of narcotics from white power gang members. Typically these gang members would be identified by their tattoos, most of which were acquired while incarcerated. They wear their hateful ink with a sense of pride. Some include Swastikas, SS Lightning Bolts and other various white pride related designs. The younger generation typically don't foster any hateful ideologies but when they're placed into a prison or correctional facility, they easily become influenced by older white gang members, typically from gangs such as Public Enemy Number 1 a/k/a PEN1. PEN1's the dominant white power skinhead gang in Southern San Andreas, their influence spans from the Vespucci area all the way to East Los. Once they're inside, their drug addiction only gets worse, the prices are higher; victims become broke and more often than not they have to exchange favors in order to feed their addictions. OOC: This group will have themes of white supremacy due to the subculture that exists in the correctional system but by no means will there be allowed any OOC reflection of our character's actions. Poor portrayal will be brought up to the individual quickly, leading to a kick if improvement has not been made. The group is RPing in 2024 Los Angeles, California equivalent, so the characters will reflect that. Reach out to me on sixtyeight#8812 for any questions, otherwise join the discord.

  4. Proudly Provincial Since 1915... 2 men arrested following violent home invasion in Grapeseed Maise Parker SENORA BEACON JOURNALIST Published 12:48 a.m. PDT November 14, 2022 GRAPESEED, S.A. — Two men were arrested after their alleged involvement in a home invasion in Grapeseed. Thursday just after 2:30 a.m., sheriffs were called out to a house near East Joshua Road. When officers arrived, they found a man and woman who were bleeding from the head. Investigators learned that two suspects, one armed, had entered the house and demanded money. One of the suspects allegedly pistol-whipped both adult victims when they learned that there was no money inside the house. LSSD said that the suspects allegedly threatened to kill the victims if they did not get their money. Both adult victims were eventually able to escape from the home and left the two children inside of the room. The adults went to a neighbor's house and called 911. LSSD found the two children uninjured in the home of the victims upon arrival. They continued to look for the suspects, who were spotted in a van near Union Road. Deputies conducted a traffic stop and both suspects were taken into custody. The suspects were identified by LSSD as Jude Moore, 31, of Grapeseed and Wayne Rees, 22, of El Burro Heights. According to sources, a loaded .40 caliber gun was found on Moore's person. “There are no other known suspects at-large thanks to the efforts of the Los Santos County Sherrif's Department. This violent crime is particularly disturbing. The LSSD will be further investigating this incident,” law enforcement officials stated in a news release. Rees has been booked on conspiracy to commit home invasion robbery. Moore was booked on recommended charges of kidnapping, assault with a firearm, robbery, child endangerment and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the LSSD. No further information has been released. The investigation is ongoing. >> click here for more articles <<

  7. The greenlight worked like a charm. Under this set up, la eMe controlled not only tens of thousands of gang members and drug dealers but anyone else who got in their way. There was some resistance. The Maravilla neighborhoods in East Los Santos — which had a long and bitter battle with la eMe — brought five hundred gang members together for a meeting of their own. The Barrio Maravilla consist of several smaller individual Mexican-American street gangs who originated in Unincorporated East Los Santos, San Andreas. The Maravillas has been around since the early 1930s and are considered one of the first gangs in East Los Santos. They are notorious for being one of the first gangs who refused to be taxed or share a portion of their criminal earnings with the Mexican Mafia (eMe). This act of defiance led to them being "green-lighted" by the Mexican Mafia and becoming enemies of all Sureno gangs. Except for a small pocket of token resistance, Maravilla gang members are now considered Surenos. The scattered few Maravilla gangs who oppose eMe’s rule remain on the "green-light" list. Over time Maravilla gangs spread throughout the San Chianski Valley, the Inland Empire and out toward Nevada. Today in Los Santos they can be found dotted along the eastern side of the Del Perro FWY. History of the East Los Maravilla Valley Maravilla (VMV) was formed in 2023 after the dissolution of Happy Perros Maravilla (HPMV). Following the detachment of the Frontyard Lokos clique on Amarillo Ave and their subsequent formation into Front Yard Maravilla, a wedge of division was jammed between the lower subsets of HPMV. Remaining members of the Alley Boys clicque, Joker and Smiley, utilised their control over younger family members within the tag-banging crew, Get Back Official (GBO), to sway the younger generation of impressionable brown kids in the varrio to follow them. Under waning leadership from HPMV, with key figures either incarcerated, with FYMV, or having moved on, Joker had managed to take control of a modest portion of the narcotics trade in East Los Santos. He enlisted them to get product moving on the corners through members of GBO. With HPMV now mostly defunct, Joker put on his most loyal followers under a new banner, Valley Maravilla. Valley Maravilla hold no discontent towards their predecessors and allows the history of the varrio to be on proud display by leaving their graffiti untouched. In an effort to disassociate themselves from the other MV gangs that they withdrew from, VMV proudly green-rag in order to pay homage to the "Los Maravillosos" (the marvelous ones), who were "green lit" by the Mexican Mafia. Barrio Maravilla Maravilla gangs are their own worst enemy, for instance, the Arizona Maravilla, Lote Maravilla and Lopez Maravilla are bitter enemies fighting for control over the same neighborhood. However, the Maravilla have made several attempts to reconcile their differents by attending truce meetings in hopes of coexisting peacefully as neighbors. This also happens with Valley Maravilla and Front Yard Maravilla, fighting for control in El Burro as neighboring hoods before Front Yard Maravilla went defunct. One of their biggest rivalries is with the White Fence, these gangs has been feuding for over thirty years. This animosity between the two gangs has led to some deadly encounters costing both sides casualties and grief. Valley Maravilla also known for their beefs with Indiana Dukes 13 and Parkside Gangsters 13 prior to these gangs going defunct. Nowadays they continue to have a strong community and hold over their neighborhood in El Burro, alongside the neighboring hood on the upper part of Fudge Lane. The Majority of MV Gangs in Los Santos, who carry the Maravilla moniker are not necessarily affiliated with each other, they just sprouted in the same neighborhood, Maravilla. Other MV Gangs (active and defunct) Fudge Lane Maravilla, Gage Maravilla, El Rancho Maravillians, Project Boys Maravillas, Gallows Hill Maravilla, High Times Maravilla, Maravilla Projects, Rock Maravilla, Juarez Maravilla, Raskals Maravilla, Hoyo Maravilla, Lopez Maravilla, Lote Maravilla, Gage Maravilla, Happy Perros MaraVilla, Home Boyz Maravilla, Ford Maravilla, Frazier Maravilla, Maravilla Rifa, Opal Maravilla, Moeriya Maravilla, Lomita Maravilla, Pomeroy Maravilla, Fisher St. Lokos Maravilla Projects, Marianna Maravilla, Arizona Maravilla, Front Yard Maravilla, Valley Maravilla and Puente Maravilla. OOC INFO ((Varrio Maravilla strives to portray a modern example of the culture ingrained within the Maravilla varrios. We hope to be able to mimic the current generational shift in East LA and show the progression from the very familiar 90s-esque Sureno factions heading toward the more modern era. It’s true that time moves a little slower in the varrio and a lot of traditions carry on, and this is something that we want to explore.))

  9. Frogtownnn! Frogtown Rifa 13 (FTRX3) is one of the oldest hispanic varrios in East Los Santos, it's roots dating back to the early 1900s during the water drought of San Andreas. They achieved the name 'Frogtown' due to their massive population of toads and frogs in the area due to their homes being located close to the Los Santos river. Although, with the modernization of Los Santos, especially Mirror Park, frogs and toads have not been seen in the area for decades. This is possibly due to the coyotes that roam the riverbed and the toxic chemicals dumped into the river. Arnold "Arnie" Gonzalez Arnold "Arnie" Gonzalez was a highly respected member of Frogtown Rifa 13, even earning his place in La Eme. In May, 2018, Arnie and his accomplices were charged with a RICO case by the Los Santos District Attorney. He was identified as the person who brought the alliance between Frogtown Rifa (FTR), Toonerville Rifa (TVF), and Thee Rascals (TRS) together to sell narcotics across the Mirror Park and Los Santos river region. While he was collecting the tax money from all of this, Arnie appointed "Jorge Grey" as his tax collector due to Arnie being locked up in the Boilingbroke State Penitentiary. With this arrest came the raid of Frogtown Rifa 13 neighborhoods known as, Operation "Gig' Em". This takedown had the arrest of over 22 FTR members and weapons and narcotics were retrieved and taken off the streets. With this came a dying out of FTR activity in their hood. Modern Day FTRX3 As of today, Frogtown Rifa 13 is currently popping back up in the streets of Mirror Park and Eastern Los Santos. Their has been numerous sightings of tags in the area where teenagers known to sport dark green flags and a Florida Marlins hat. Three areas have had numerous taggings, each belonging to a different clique. The cliques go in order as Parkside Winos (PSWS), Churchside Locos (CSLS), and Riverside Malditos (RSMS). These cliques are known to have a presence in drug sales in the area and graffiti, mostly having younger members in the cliques, trying to revive what their prior generation had accomplished.
  10. Puente Locos was formed in 2002 originally as a clique within the Fraser set of Maravilla. Fraser and Marianna Maravilla have been longtime enemies and at war for some time. Puente being the youngest clique at the time was eager to show off it's activity in the conflict. In a brazen shooting targeting a Marianna higher up Puente members mistakenly was fed the wrong information on his location and shot up the Marianna shotcallers house killing the younger brother instead. The shooting brought a lot of heat to the area and with a innocent being killed Fraser older members were furious with the young Puente members. Rocky Gallardo one of the shooters an a beloved member was found shot a few days later. Rumors within the hood stated he was killed by Marianna in revenge but Puente Locos members felt he was backdoored by his own and hostilities ramped up within Fraser. In late 2005 Puente Locos broke off and outstretched to their own Maravilla set. Puente had a fairly large portion of the youth in the ranks follow but being at war with Fraser and Marianna made years hell for Puente Maravilla. The gang in modern times has been smaller and bordering defunct status but they still clutch to their small section of turf hanging on and recruiting when they can. In a bid to take some heat off their back they followed in the path of many of the other Maravilla sets and submitted to paying taxes to La Eme. The gang identifies with the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Philadelphia Phillies baseball team logos. Both teams such as Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies represents the "P" in Puente Maravilla.

    Lazy Lozano

    Nathan 'Lazy' Lozano Nathan 'Lazy' Lozano was born and raised in El Burro with his parents (Manuel & Romina Lozano) and his younger brother, Hugh 'Hewey' Lozano. His home life was turbulent from the get-go; his Father was a bad influence, involving himself with the local gangs, particularly focusing on drug trafficking, while his Mother had an on-and-off again relationship with a cocktail of drugs, usually in sync with her on-and-off relationship with Manuel. Nathan became more than a big brother to Hugh but also a carer, to him and to his Mother during particularly bad comedowns. At the age of 17, his Father was killed at the hands of a cop who believed he was armed after he had evaded the police in his car. The Lozano brothers never truly found out if he was armed, but the word on the streets is that this was a case of police brutality, and they treated it as such as they didn’t want to put the blame on their old man. After this event, their Mother spiralled deeper into addiction and lost her job - their only income. She continued to feed her addiction by selling herself on the streets and sometimes she would be out of the house for days without a trace. Never knowing if she was going to come back or not, Nathan took the responsibility of parenting, dropping out of school at 17 years old just a year before he would get his diploma in order to get full-time work. This limited his options in life and his resentment and anger was directed at the people that had taken his Father away, as well as any authority or overall government system. In late 2022, Nathan noticed a change in Hewey. His grades began to slip, he was coming home in the early hours and surrounding himself with bad influences. The usual tale in East Los. Noticing this, Nathan aims to push him in the right direction - or at least, a better direction, dragging him along with an older crowd hoping it will force him to grow up and turn from the gang life. This was made easier when Sergio 'Switch' Vargas was released from jail, bringing together all of the young and middle-aged men in the barrio that wanted more loyalty and brotherhood in their life, all under the name of Latin Pride. Older men in Nathan's life, such as Manuel 'Manny' Guerrero, knew of his Father vaguely, and replaced the parental figure by teaching him discipline and the MC culture, eventually culminating in Manny sponsoring Nathan as his prospect following the formation of Caballeros MC. This thread will showcase Nathan's development as he attempts to balance honest work, caring for his brother and addict Mother, and his commitment to the Caballeros MC. THE STORY SO FAR This section will briefly summarise collections of events and turning points, for my own ease of looking back on my character without sifting through SS or for those reading later on. CHAPTER 1: ESTABLISHING Nathan has been prospecting for the Caballeros MC in East Los for a couple of months. During this time, he has worked hard to impress his older peers, aiding at events, fetching beers and finding ways of bringing profit to the club, legal or otherwise, while they wait for the all-important meet for blessings to fly the Caballero colours with the dominant clubs in the state. On the other hand, he has been making irresponsible financial decisions, investing more than he should into improving his bike, his pride and joy, and partying until the sun comes up. His younger brother using his own wages to follow in his footsteps. These choices resulted in the Lozano brothers being kicked out of their childhood home, the landlord sick of waiting for rent money that rarely ever arrives. Low on cash, and their Mother MIA since the kick, they moved into a rundown shared apartment in Mission Row, where they sleep on mattresses and live with other low-income individuals. Motivated by not even owning a bed, and wanting to invest in the necessary space and equipment to start up a band with Hugh and Nina, Nathan sought better employment, as well as planning extracurricular activities with Manny and Rio, two patched members of the MC. To his surprise, a fine dining restaurant in Del Perro accepted his application for bartending; despite having to swallow his pride in doing a job he never wanted to do, he quit his short-lived garbage career and focused on his new higher paying job. Unfortunately, this wage wasn't enough for Nathan, either, as he continues down the path of seeking money in ways that he would have never considered a few months prior.
  12. Press Play... The body of a 23-year-old girl was found crumpled outside in the backyard of a Mirror Park home, along with her dead 7-month-old son. It was clear to investigators who came upon the scene in the early hours of a Monday morning that the young mother had tried to run away with her baby in her arms. But forensic evidence showed she had been caught before she could escape, and both she and her child were shot in the forehead from above, execution style. In this impoverished community, and far beyond, many were left considering the same possibilities when grappling with who would commit such a heinous crime. The slain woman was Brenda “Minnie” Abellán. Her 7-month-old son was Ismael Abellán. The suspect was her husband, Manuel “Manny Gee” Ros, who went on a 3-day methamphetamine binge before murdering her for sleeping with one of his friends. In court records filed in conjunction with the parole check, officials describe Manuel Ros as a “documented Sureño gang member.” Both Ros & Minnie Abellán were apart of the Vicky’s Town 13 street gang, they ended up having two sons together throughout the years. Brenda battled heroin addiction and slowly gave up the gang banging life in attempt to become clean and care for her children, while Manny Ros practically lived in the streets he gang banged on like he had nowhere to go, almost never home with Brenda and the kids. Manny Ros engaged in a gun battle with federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and was wounded before being taken into custody, officials said. Los Santos County Sheriff Rick Boudreaux said Ros, who could face federal charges in the assault of a federal officer, underwent surgery at a hospital and was expected to survive. At the time of the arrest, Manny Ros was already a fugitive, having violated probation in Los Santos’ Blaine County, where he was convicted of aggravated robbery, according to court records. Their other son was 12-year-old Armando Ros at the time, the one who found his slaughtered mother and baby brother after getting off a school bus just up the street from his decrepit 2-bedroom home. Becoming the only child, he moved in with his grandmother in a small backyard bungalow on East Mirror Drive. He’s known to spend much of his time with his friends at Victory Parque. Ros attended school in East Los Unified School District but began having behavior issues and ultimately got suspended for the remaining of the 2023 school year for throwing a chair at a teacher. Before the murders, he was a straight A student.
  13. History: DTS (DOWNTOSHOOT) was founded in 2019 by Carlos Guerrero and Alan Espejo in the Bridgetown Apartments after noticing that all their individual tags had been painted over by tagging crews from other neighborhoods. They soon recruited other taggers in their community aiming to force tagging crews from other areas to stay out of Mirror Park. Carlos, and Alan then began recruiting other locals to join their crew. Cesar Arias, Miguel Blanco, and Rue Gomez made up the original membership. The group soon started committing petty crimes engaging in shoplifting, and breaking into cars to help fund their tagging, and partying. A year after being formed the group was shaken when Juan “Snoopy” Guerrero the older brother of founding member Carlos Guerrero was killed in a drive by shooting while leaving a house party in the El Burro neighborhood. Following this event their tags began reflecting this and to this day often have a R.I.P Snoopy accompanying them. Despite only having a handful of members DTS began their rise to local fame after the death of Snoopy, their tags becoming typically less artistic, and more reminiscent of local gang tags, however new murals can occasionally be seen popping up around the area. In recent times the crew has been more prone to using violence to keep other tagging crews out of their neighborhood engaging in several brawls, however shootings, or stabbings are unheard of. DOWNTOSHOOT can often be found hanging out at the Mirror Park LTD, The Bridgetown Apartments, and the park itself. OOC: All recruitment into this faction is handled ICly. We aim to accurately portray a small time tag banging crew. This means that you cannot expect constant shootings, or big time drug sales within this faction in it's current state. If you’re interested in joining your character should be a teenage local to Mirror Park. Accepting our script invite is granting faction leadership character kill permissions.
  14. ((Play this one loudly...)) Our Marvelous Home... (East Los... El Burro, Murrieta Heights, La Mesa, & Cypress Flats.) The Del Perro FWY ran across the East Los like a train at night, you'd hear that motherfucker hustling and bustling throughout the varrio... the year was 1967, in the town of our Gente - Maravilla(MV). It's where La Raza lived before the major stadiums robbed our Gente of their homes... before the wall, when we came across back to our neighborhood freely to work & get-up in our vidas. East Los has always been... our marvelous home... Our own Gente policed the calles, they were called Pachucos or Zoot Suiters from The Hole(a MV gang known as El Hoyo Maravilla.) - mischievous Chicano youth that eventually spread out all through the barrios of Maravilla(La Mesa, Murrieta Heights, El Burro Heights, & Cypress Flats.) who combated against each-other & gained their own respected histories. (Pachucos or "Zoot-Suiters" of the El Hoyo MV gang from the late 1940s.) Maravilla Barrios within East Los Santos; Fudge Lane Maravilla Gage Maravilla El Rancho Maravillians Project Boys Maravillas Gallows Hill Maravilla High Times Maravilla Maravilla Projects Rock Maravilla Juarez Maravilla Raskals Maravilla Hoyo Maravilla Lopez Maravilla Lote Maravilla Gage Maravilla Happy Perros MaraVilla Home Boyz Maravilla Ford Maravilla Frazier Maravilla Frontyard Maravilla Maravilla Rifa Opal Maravilla Moeriya Maravilla Lomita Maravilla Pomeroy Maravilla Fisher St. Lokos Maravilla Projects Marianna Maravilla Arizona Maravilla (El Hoyo Maravilla gang-members posted, El Burro circa late 1950s.) One of these Maravilla barrios by the name of Happy Perros MV(HPMV) hung in the Back Lott... a grassy knoll under the Del Perro FWY & Elysian Fields FWY intersection, it's a football field's size & a landmark within Murrieta Heights. The older gente dubbed the crowd of youngsters the nickname "Happy Perros" due to the large amount of stray dogs ditched after illegal dog fights in the barrio - so the crowd of stoner Hispanic youth adopted the name as their own. Perro meaning "Dog" in Spanish only brings more reference to the original gang spot of HPMV, all in all... the Hispanic youth were just a band of happy dogs playing in the Back Lott. Since then the Happy Perros MV represent their barrio color as black, just like the many black haired mutts that loitered the Back Lott in the late 1970s - when HPMV first broke into the Maravilla gang scene. The NFL football team such as The Raiders are displayed as gang attire by HPMV members due to the team's black & silver coloring. (An infamous group of O.G. brothers from the original HPMV during the early 70s, known as the "Wild Bunch" or "The Villa Brothers" - Snoopy, Scooby, Yogi, & K-9.) (Two of the few original "Wanderers" clique founders out of HPMV(Shy Dog sitting inside & Oso posing outside) at a car meet in La Mesa mid 1970s.) The barrio came out during the “Stoner era” of the 1970s when Hispanic street socialization was centered around parties, drinking and doing light weight drugs. Every Saturday night about 20 to 40 Happy Perros gang-members would head down to the Back Lott under the Del Perro & Elysian Fields FWY intersection to get loaded... eventually transforming into a traditional street gang, already having rivalries with El Hoyo Maravilla, Fudge Lane Maravilla, Homeboyz Maravilla, & El Rancho Maravilla which were all previously Stoner groups as well. Many of the HPMV gang-members earn dog tattoos that represent work they've put in or respect earned... characters such as "Snoopy" from Charlie Brown or the dog "Scooby-Do" are major gang mascots(even some gang-member's nicknames are a reference to iconic Dog characters.). (The infamous "Back Lott" where the original HPMV gang-members hung out & claimed as theirs.) During Happy Perros emergence, the Maravilla barrios of East Los had an increasing segment of their varrios aligned with the Mexican Mafia. Especially after Frank “Quemado” Venegas(a member of El hoyo MV) was murdered by Nuestra Familia(NF) member Robert “Daira” Medina. Daira had kitted Quemado, asking for assistance against La Eme members that were ordered to take his life... Quemado remained neutral in the situation due to the module being ran by La Eme. In result, Daira stabbed Quemado to death in his cell. This incident only solidified NF as an enemy to Maravillas, therefore Happy Perros had naturally allied with La Eme membership. Other MV barrios had their members even align with the Nuestra Familia... Manuel "Creeper" Trejo from Gallows Hill MV had gained membership within the family. (A cluster of seasoned Maravilla gang-members taking a photo together; Raider from HPMV, Turtle from Fudge Lane MV, the mysterious Manuel "Creeper" Trejo of Gallows Hill MV - also Nuestra Familia member during the late '70s, Creeper and select few Maravillas have been known members of "Our Family".) During Happy Perros emergence, the Maravilla barrios of East Los had an increasing segment of their varrios aligned with the Mexican Mafia. Especially after Frank “Quemado” Venegas(a member of El hoyo MV) was murdered by Nuestra Familia(NF) member Robert “Daira” Medina. Daira had kitted Quemado, asking for assistance against La Eme members that were ordered to take his life... Quemado remained neutral in the situation due to the module being ran by La Eme. In result, Daira stabbed Quemado to death in his cell. This incident only solidified NF as an enemy to Maravillas, therefore Happy Perros had naturally allied with La Eme membership. Other MV barrios had their members even align with the Nuestra Familia... Manuel "Creeper" Trejo from Gallows Hill MV had gained membership within the family. (Different Maravilla gang-members posing for gang photos within Maravilla modules of Los Santos' Men's Central jail.) In the sixty-three year history of La Eme, twenty-two carnales have originated from Maravilla barrios. Seventeen of these members were from El Hoyo MV. From the 1980s & into the 1990s - many Maravilla gang-members walked the mainline while incarcerated, but were looked down upon by La Eme. As Maravilla convicts would win their release on state parole their veteranos would began to spread anti-EME sentiment inside their barrios. Warning them of La Eme's dog-eat-dog mentality & fake unionization of La Raza as a whole... everything was either for power or feria, there was no true brotherhood amongst it's snakes. (Veteranos of HPMV & allies of the gang posing for a photo in the Back Lott at a BBQ of older homeboys after prison.) Beginning in the early 1990’s, Maravilla gangs openly declared their opposition to EME’s authority and refused to pay taxes, Happy Perros MV being one of many Maravilla gangs partaking in this rebellion. These Maravilla tax resistors called themselves “Los Maravillosos” (the marvelous ones) & identified themselves as "TAX FREE". The EME response was swift and merciless. Maravilla gang members were targeted in county jails and prisons throughout California. Brutal attacks occurred and all Sureño gangs turned against them, many Maravilla veteranos & youngsters lost their lives to this decision. The EME “green light” on Maravilla necessitated a response from the law enforcement community to protect these inmates upon entry into their jail facilities. Los Santos Men’s Central Jail(MCJ) initiated a mandate in which every incoming member of a Maravilla gang would be housed in their own "Maravilla" gang module... just as the Bloods & Crips had their own module to reduce conflict amongst each-other. (Gang photo of HPMV during the early Millennium, this was during the "Cyclones" clique era of the barrio, many Cyclones were either killed behind bars or taken out on the streets by Sureños.) The Green-light kill-on-sight by Eme was eventually taken off the Maravilla barrios by the mid 2000s, when established Maravilla members within La Eme began to politic & gain good standings with the fellas for Maravilla barrios. One name in particular was Alfred “Chato” Sandoval from Arizona MV, for many years Chato had held East Los as territory(which includes collecting taxes) for the Mexican Mafia & sourced many varrios to be "with the program" - HPMV being one of those many now considered Sureños when behind the wall. There were a select few Maravilla hoods that remained on the green-light for total disobedience of Chato & were considered "Los Maravillosos"(the marvelous ones), these varrios have long been taken out or members are in deep hiding... Happy Perros MV on the other hand - has fully been swallowed up by the Mexican Mafia's criminal umbrella. (Cricket & Ghost out of the HPMV's Alley Boys clique take a gang flick while partying in the Back Lott.) (Few members from the Frontyard Lokos & Back Lott Strangers clique out of HPMV, circa 2019.) Today's modern day HPMV is small but actively growing within the neighborhood, a lot of the youngsters being put-on the varrio through generational membership. Also the mass influx of Hispanic families moving back into the barrio due to gentrification of neighboring barrios such as Mirror Park. Fudge Lane Strangers & Tiny Lokas are the up and coming clique of HPMV, being the generation after the Strangers & Alley Boys clique that initially began HPMV's cooperation with Chato's reign as the Eme's tax collector for Maravilla barrios. With that being said, several tag banging crews are directly linked to HPMV, almost as an entry recruitment into the varrio(the minor leagues). Tag Banger Crews under HPMV: Always Gettin Faded(AGF) Sick Ass Perros(SAP) So Hated Krew(SHK) Frontyard Stoners (FYS - removed from the HPMV barrio due to Frontyard LKS splitting off into their own.) Get Back Official (GBO) (The main-heads of the Frontyard Stoners(FYS) were three brothers; Gangster, Payback, & Turbo (pictured here with their homeboy Pancho.)- new up & coming youngsters out of (S) Amarillo ST. earning a name within HPMV as potential homeboys of the gang, swallowing up their tag crew FYS into HPMV and giving a nod to their original tagger crew being "Frontyard" to the (W) Fudge Lane clique... Fontyard Lokos(FYL). The Velas eventually aligned their tag banger crew FYS to Frontyard Lokos(FYL) under HPMV... due to the incarceration of many surrounding MV & Sureño barrios, FYS hadn't been recruited to any older barrios yet. Bringing the Velas & other influential youth across (S) Amarillo into (W) Fudge LN.), representing then for the Happy Perros MaraVilla.) The Happy Perros Maravilla's original territory is smack-dab in-between La Mesa & Murrieta Heights... wrapping around the unincorporated neighborhoods of East Los Santos like a box. The old hood(which is now industrial buildings) was Popular ST. in La Mesa - cutting east down Vespucci BLVD throughout Supply ST. all the way to the Back Lott(the grassy knoll under the Del Perro & Elysian Fields FWY intersection.) on El Rancho BLVD. in Murrieta Heights. This original La Mesa varrio has split into El Burro & Murrieta Heights(the Back Lott) in the recent years. Happy Perros MV originally controlled the north side barrio of Popular Street (n) to Supply Street (e) between El Rancho Boulevard (N) and Vespucci Boulevard. Present day HPMV controls the area between El Rancho Boulevard (south) to Fudge Lane (west). Happy Perros MaraVilla is a much smaller turf today than the one they controlled during the 1970s and 1990s but its location is still consistent with the core area they originally covered. (The old hood of HPMV is at the border of La Mesa & Murrieta Heights to the West & East of the Del Perro & Elysian Fields FWY intersection.) The La Mesa hood of Happy Perros M.V. is their more historical & forgotten side of their barrio. The community of La Mesa has undergone some significant changes as the neighborhood has changed from a residential community that once occupied the streets of Supply Street and Vespucci Boulevard to an industrial and commercial zone during the 1990s with very little residential population. The clicks of La Mesa & the Back Lott include the Popular Street Raskals(PSR), Alley Boys (ABS), Strangers, Cyclones, and Wanderers (WNDRS). –Happy Perros MaraVilla 1st Hood(non-existant): in the industrial & textile warehouse buildings that were once residential communities in La Mesa. –Happy Perros MaraVilla 2nd Hood(current hood): in the El Burro neighborhood of East Los Santos along El Rancho BLVD, between Capital BLVD. & Fudge LN. During the green-light era of all Maravilla barrios, HPMV was in the Cyclones clique era who's members mainly were taken out in prison or hunted down by up & coming Sureños making a name for themselves with The Fellas. A lot of the Happy Perros went into hiding & fled the state of San Andreas, while others held their ground & eventually were taken care of. Today's modern day HPMV is small but actively growing within the El Burro neighborhood(Fudge Lane), a lot of the youngsters being put-on tag banging crews that weren't swallowed up by existing varrios... but also generational members from HPMV cliques such as (ABS) & (STRS) living now in El Burro with family members & spouses. Also the mass influx of Hispanic families moving back into El Burro due to gentrification of neighboring hoods such as Mirror Park, La Mesa, & East Vinewood. (The new hood claimed by Fudge LN. STRS & Tiny Lokas, occupying west Fudge LN. along with the San An Taco & El Burro Heights Gas.) Front Yard Lokos(FYL)(Perros coming out from the Frontyard Stoners tag-banging crew) & Tiny Lokas(homegirl clique) were the up & coming 2020s generation of Happy Perros MV. Frontyard Lokos clique is the generation after the (STRS) & (ABS) HPMV cliques that initially began HPMV's cooperation with Chato's reign as the Eme's tax collector for Maravilla barrios after the green-light era. With that being said, several tag banging crews are directly linked to HPMV, almost as an entry recruitment into the varrio(the minor leagues). Frontyard Stoners tagging crew was swallowed up by HPMV as one of it's crews - due to surrounding Sureño & other Maravilla barrios being inactive... existing (ABS) & (STRS) members residing in El Burro put them on as HPMV. With many of those now put-on Perros coming out of the (FYS) tagging crew - the (ABS) & (STRS) generation called them Frontyard Lokos(FYL) giving them recognition to their original tagging crew name Frontyard Stoners(FYS)(which no longer exists in HPMV now). The infamous Vela brothers & their influence of youngsters in El Burro who were all very well respected & original residents to south-western Amarillo ST. felt the FYLs should represent the original residents of their neighborhood... that being now Frontyard Maravilla(FYMV). Today the Fudge LN. STRS consist of residents that originally lived on (W) Fudge LN. & claimed FYLs at the time, after the split pushing Fudge LN. STRANGERS(a new clique name) in bitterness of FYMV breaking off from Happy Perros to establish their own Maravilla(East Los) neighborhood. The two are now separate MV varrios & operate on different wave lengths, a history of rivalry & arrogance is still held between the two... so they usually avoid each-other but tolerate each-others existence as long as neither get in the way of one another. (G-Eyes (FYL) & Payback(FYL) out of Frontyard Lokos banging for the camera as they walk down Fudge LN. towards southern Amarillo ST.) (Original STRS clique members out the Back Lott & Frontyard Lokos; Wyno(STRS), Spooky(STRS), & Swifty(FYL) posing for a gang flicka, Swifty is crossed out for snitching out Wyno & Spooky after the trio were busted for a robbery gone wrong in Cypress Flats resulting in the murder of a gas station attendant... Wyno & Spooky are rumored to have gone to the rancho in Mexico to evade gang-unit detectives. This only added fuel to the fire for the FYLs to split from HPMV & represent their own as FYMV.) This faction is a portrayal of modern Maravilla gangs within East L.A., the characters are portrayed from traditional Mexican-American households that have deep roots to their Chicano heritage. The gang-members from this particular part of Los Angeles use more traditional Mexican slang than they do African-American gang terms that maybe a Mexican gang out of South L.A. would use(Although if pulled-off correctly like for example... a young Paisa gang banger using the N word - it maybe can work). We portray a Maravilla gang that has its representatives & main heads who pay taxes to La Eme members for their jurisdiction of East Los, unlike a “Los Maravillosos” clique would do who is "Tax-Free" & still green-lit by La eMe today. This thread was a collision of information gathered by old & present Maravilla interviews & documentaries... as well as quotes written in guides posted by Large Hazard & Sureño Commission. Initial entry into the faction is through one of the tag banger crews, you may RP being from one of the tag banger crews to help your initial RP encounters blend in naturally. If interested please DM Asesino or Keep It Marvelous & join our Discord to learn more and get acquainted with Maravilla RP. (Smiley out of (ABS) & Casper from (FYL) throw up the barrio behind Fudge Lane: Happy Perros MV. The remaining youth who were more established on (W) Fudge LN. stayed loyal to Happy Perros MV & represent the (w) Fudge LN. Strangers clique out of HPMV. The main heads are a slew of ABS(from the old hood in La Mesa), STRS(out of the back lott), and original residents of (w) Fudge LN. that still maintain control of their marvelous home...)
  15. 18th Street Many look at 18th Street as one monolithic super-gang whether its on a local, national or international scale but 18th Street is more of an identity that several unconnected neighborhoods fall under. Similar to the Crip or Blood identity, 18th Street is not one gang. Even on a micro scale in Los Santos, the 20 different 18th Street gangs do not operate as one, are not unified, nor do they even all know each other, so they should be looked at as individual independent autonomous gang neighborhoods. There are those different 18th Street neighborhoods that interact and socialize with each other because of close geographic proximity but most 18th Street factions are dispersed through out the County and each neighborhood has their own specific territory and their own unique enemies. Some of the 18th Street neighborhoods even have a unique name, such as the 18th Street gang in Vinewood; 18th Street Vinewood Gangsters, which is not a click name, but the actual name of the gang. The clicks that fall under that gang are the Tiny Locos and Pee Wee Winos. Since its inception, youth from every large city in the US, Canada, Mexico and countries in Central & South America America, Europe and most likely several other cities and countries have adapted the use of the name 18th Street. Because of the wide spread popularity, the FBI has labeled this gang a transnational gang with global reach, but there is no evidence to support the existence of any such global network in which the 18th Street gang operates between cities or across national borders. Because of deportation, the gang culture of LS was introduced into Mexico and Central America, but transnational linkages in which the 18th Street gang operate have not been uncovered thus far. A study from 2007 found that international connections among Hispanic gangs like 18th Street and Mara Salvatrucha were over stated and that there were no signs of transnational coordination among gang members. Academic studies have also fell short from identifying these types of networks among Los Santos based Hispanic gangs. ((Out of Character Information)) We are portraying a realistic eighteen street clique located on Fudge Lane & Amarillo Vista in El Burro Heights. We encourage everyone who wants to roleplay with the faction to get familiar with Sureños and Mexican-American gangs in the United States. Those who are interested can forum pm myself for further instructions and questions. This faction is invite only, those who wish to participate in the development should forum pm me!

    Mickey Farrell

    Michael 'Mickey' Farrell This thread's purpose is to follow the life of Michael Farrell, an El Burro native. Michael Farrell was born into an Irish family. His Mother, Siobhan Kelly now Farrell, married Padraig Farrell when they were just 18. They bought a house in El Burro and started a family together. Their first born Michael proved to be a fairly well behaved child, but maybe that was due to the fear of Padraig belting him if he stepped out of line. Padraig was a hardworking man, who was a professional at construction. It flowed from his hands like it was his God's given gift. Siobhan was a full time Mother and did her best to raise her children whilst Padraig worked hard to put food on the table for them. Years went on and Michael grew older, he found himself in trouble with the law, in trouble at school and fighting almost daily. Majority of his fights were over petty arguments and of course, Michael's pride. The violence left the schoolyard and Michael would begin fighting in the streets. His Father Padraig put him into boxing but it didn't last too long, his coach discovered he had been using his newly learned skills in street fights and for that, kicked him out of the gym. Why did Michael like violence so much? Nobody really knew... It was just Michael. Deep down though? Maybe it's because of his Father. Padraig was never shy of giving Michael a ''good hiding''. It taught Michael to react with violence when he wasn't happy with a situation or someone's behaviour. Michael had always been a fan of art, he drew to escape his troubles at home whilst growing up. It was either drawing, or fighting. Michael almost ruined his career as an artist after he got into a fight with a group of boys at school who had been bullying him since kindergarten, he punched one either so hard, or at a wrong angle, that he got a boxer's fracture. His hand was swollen for over a week and the pain was extreme. He never went to the hospital or received medical attention for it. He thought he'd never draw again but in the end he managed. At the age of 16, Michael would drop out of school and start hanging out in the streets. He'd eventually be arrested and sent to the halls for yet again, fighting. Upon his release, he reconnected with the whiteboys in the area and began to take the lifestyle more serious. Michael's future unfolds...
