  1. This thread will showcase the background and development of Hispanic siblings living out of East Los Santos. The main perspective will be that of Isabella Arias with supporting development from her brother Cesar Arias. Backstory Isabella/Bella is the oldest of three siblings at aged 23. Miguel, the middle child, would be aged 22 if he were still alive today. Cesar is the youngest sibling at aged 19. After the youngest of the three siblings was born their Father walked out on the family. The family got by for the first ten or so years until their Mothers undiagnosed diabetes started developing into more serious issues which forced her to quit work. As a result the three siblings felt an immense pressure to provide for themselves and their family at a young age with Bella being only 17 about to start her final two years of high school. Bella managed to get her final two years of high school education put on hold by contacting the school board about her situation. She used these two years to work three part time jobs bringing in all the money she could for the family whilst saving a little on the side. Her brothers on the other hand took to the streets becoming entwined with the gang lifestyle, within a year they were selling drugs and tagging up the neighbourhood to make a name for themselves at ages 16 and 14. Bella was soon back to school to finish her final two years of education late. During this time she didn't really speak to her brothers as much as they used to before the street life took over and made their opinions differ drastically. Despite this she still offered her compassion and guidance where she could but often felt scared to express her opinions in front of the gang. After her late graduation in 2020 she took a job as a family care worker going through a few months training to earn her qualifications. This was a job she felt close to home as it was revolved around providing support to families suffering through illness, poverty and such, much like her own family had when she was growing up. Life was fairly smooth from this point on, Isabella's wage was enough to support herself and her mother in the family apartment. Her brothers also contributed dirty money to the family that they earnt through the streets. This was still something Isabella didn't agree with and could see how her brothers were shifting into darker versions of themselves over the years. Eventually Isabella's worst nightmare struck true when Miguel was shot in a drive-by shooting on the road in front of the Arias' apartment in early October 2022. This would cause Isabella to put in a resignation at work and spend the next four months processing the grief the entire family were going through. Her brother Cesar dealt with the grief his own way choosing to delve deeper into his life of drugs and booze to numb the pain he was feeling. This leads the family into 2023 present day where the two remaining siblings still don't see eye to eye on a number of subjects. Bella is now trying to settle down and find a new career in the Emergency Services industry whilst Cesar navigates his way through the gang life of East Los Santos.

    The Haydens

    This thread will show the development of The Hayden Family, a middle-class Caucasian family originating from Paleto Bay and their development after their arrival in the city. There will be a mixture of legal, illegal and grey area roleplay displayed here, and potentially 18+ themes. THE HAYDEN BROTHERS Christopher, Oliver and Robert Hayden were born in Paleto Bay in the late 70s and 80s. They were raised in a suburban, small town family home by their parents; a successful corporate lawyer and a stay-at-home Mom. To the community they were highly respected members of the church and were always welcomed by other households in the town. However, behind closed doors, their Father had a cocaine addiction and frequently engaged in affairs, while their Mother was meek about it, letting it happen aside from the weekly arguments. Despite the turbulent home life, all three Hayden brothers did well at school and were competent young men by their teenage years, though Oliver struggled to keep up with his brothers without hours of study. Christopher was first to graduate and moved to Connecticut after being accepted to study at Yale, where he remains to this day as a surgeon. Oliver graduated shortly afterwards, though remained in Paleto, marrying his high school sweetheart and getting a job in the local grocery store. Robert graduated and made the move to New York to study Architecture at Cornell University, receiving a masters degree. Oliver was considered the black sheep of the family, his career seeming meaningless to his Father in comparison to his brothers. However, he made up for his lack of natural intelligence with drive, determined to be better than his siblings and to provide for his first child, Francis. This drive led him to a managerial position at the same grocery store by the time he was 25. He was later offered a job working as the HR manager at the local chicken factory where he continued to work until 2022. Meanwhile, Robert's cocky and brash attitude led him to start his own practice immediately after graduating in New York, rather than gaining more experience in the field under an employer. It was only a few years of work before the firm collapsed, leaving Robert with much debt, a bad reputation in the industry, and for the first time in his life, the disappointment of his Father. From here, he jumped around the US, seeking jobs with employers that hadn’t heard of his ventures, while struggling to pay off his debt. THE NEXT GENERATION During these events, Oliver and his wife, Luisa, had two more children, Philip and Angelique. Despite his initial intentions, the constant clawing hands needing cash turned Oliver resentful and his attitude became cold like his Father. He felt it was important to keep appearances, but inside the home he was often bitter and angry, resulting in the occasional affair and verbal abuse of the kids. Some of the children adapted better to these home conditions than others. Francis was considered the golden boy of the family, going to San Fierro college to study Mechanical Engineering and doing so with a football scholarship for his athletic achievement at Paleto High. Though, he had a passion for art, which he ignored after growing up in a household that suggested this line of work at a successful level was unachievable. His second son, Philip, was often disappointing to Oliver, always settling at school and never looking to improve himself, no matter how many times he was warned of the consequences of not succeeding in life. He had struggled with anger since he was a child, which Oliver and Luisa didn't know how to handle, leading Philip to a life mostly out of the home with bad influences that he believed understood him. He moved out as soon as he was able to. However, Oliver found the most conflict in his only daughter, as she seemed to inherit his knack for business, but not necessarily his work ethic. Angel would find her own way of doing things, which often involved partying and reckless dating, the worst part being that she seemed to have potential. Not knowing how to handle the complexities of having a daughter, much of Angel's parenting was left to Luisa, and occasionally, Uncle Robert, who despite his flaws, was often more of a voice of reason to the children than their own Father was. By early 2023, Luisa had sadly passed away at a young age from illness, leaving Oliver as a single parent to the children and now in similar shoes as his younger brother, accumulating thousands of medical debt. Robert, on the other hand, was on the come up, having paid off most of his debt due to a stable position in a firm for the past twelve years. His desire for self-employment and independence has resurfaced as he decides to make the move back to his home state of San Andreas, applying for a teaching position at ULSA as starting capital for what could later be his own business. Oliver had also decided to make the move to Los Santos after selling his Paleto family home, seeking to take his business ideas from concept to reality and distract himself from the grief of losing his wife. He also hopes to reconnect with his younger brother and children, all of them currently in the city living as they see fit.

    The Woods Family

    The Woods Family Family history, and a little legend... The Woods have lived in Sandy Shores for generations, tracing all the way back to George Woods, who allegedly settled in Blaine County after a string of bank robberies and heists across the Eastern half of the United States. George hid his ill-gotten goods somewhere in Blaine County, however died before he could tell either of his sons, Houston or Earl, where the treasure was buried. The mystery of it consumed the brothers, though Earl far more than Houston. Earl went mad and never had the time for a wife or anything of the sort. He died diving into the Alamo sea, convinced his father's treasure was there. Houston on the other hand went on to have four boys, and the current day Woods family's all descended from him. The Woods are known as rambunctious trailer trash, getting into loud domestic arguments, and fights. Their fleet of junk vehicles, old trucks, bikes, and ATVs usually litter in front of their multiple trailers along Smoke Tree road. Crazy personalities, family drama, and rumors of that long lost treasure, the Woods are living the American dream. Meet (some) of the Family: (This thread will follow the story and development of the Woods family.)

  6. The Take Down The Romano Family, most known for the notorious "Gangster's" dating back to the 80's for Extortion, Fraud, and Murder in 1989 Vincent Romano home was raided at 11:42 pm by LSPD there they found extreme amounts of cocaine and marijuana along with roughly around 60 fire-arms, Vincent was charged with RICO charges for being the ring leader of the Romano Crime Family and he was also charged for the items found inside his home during the raid, Once Vincent was charged with the RICO charges there was 28 other Family members charged with him on similar charges under the RICO act, This was a major setback for the Crime family as the ring leader was no longer able to run operations anymore this caused the existing members to move in silence under the code of "Omereta" which is a code of silence prohibiting you from speaking on the Family to informants or anyone not included in the Family, while Vincent is sitting behind bars serving 48 years for the crimes he has committed the Family has set a new "Capo" Tommaso Romano one of the seven brothers of Vincent, He was chose to take over operations while Vincent is locked up, The family has gave their trust to him believing he will lead the family in the correct direction, Tommaso was leading the family for 20 years no issues. Modern Day Activities The modern-day Romano's can be seen wearing suits along with luxury watches and high-end sport vehicles, Tommaso Romano was shot and killed, January 18th, 2015, causing yet another setback within the family, the family quickly caught wind of the death and selected another Capo to be in charge and direct them and his name is Alfred Romano the air of the famous Vincent Ramano from the 80's, Alfred is currently running his family day in and day out causing no issues along with no other family rivalries at the moment, he has been able to keep a low profile for himself and the family, keeping them right under the radar and able to make alot of 'dough' without paying the price in the 'pen' , Alfred's right hand, Paul "Paulie" Ramano who is Vincent's nephew making him and Alfred first cousins, Most of the time Alfred and Paul cannot be seen apart from each other and without the heavy security of the family around and always watching. Ramano v/s Cavallero The Ramano's have been in a long-term war with the Cavallero's for decades now, a lot of the family strongly believes they are in charge for the famous "Vincent Ramano's death in the last 80's, this strong accusation has caused the hate for the Cavallero's to grow even stronger on behalf of the Ramano's to the point where Kids and even Wifes are being killed just to send messages between the family's, The Capo of the Cavallero is Tommy Cavallero other known as Teddy he has been the Capo for decades now running operations on their behalf, there is a huge want for his head some are willing to pay up to $$$ just to see his body deceased, Teddy is known for prostitution, and extortion these are the most famous things he is known for, most people fear the Cavallero's because they are the type of family to offer 'protection' to business owners and other crews around the city, the Romano's are at the point where its kill on site with these guys, Alfred Romano has greenlit the command for Tommy Cavallero to be taken out if seen but so far nobody has seen Teddy in a few years, some wonder if he is still even living. - The Bombing On September second 2014 one of the Romano's underbosses was car bombed around 11:32 PM, his vehicle was planted with 26 proximity explosives, and when he was opening the vehicle's door the explosives went off causing the huge explosion killing him almost instantly, Tommaso Ramano the capo at the time, was in charge of figuring out who sent the attack and how he was going to return the not so nice gesture, and he did exactly that, almost two weeks after the death of the underboss Tommaso ordered a hit on Dominic Cavallero and later on that same day Dominic was gunned down coming outside of a supermarket in downtown LS. - The Kid Napping Tony Cavallero one of the few 'made men' of the Cavallero's, his wife was kidnapped while she was at a beauty parlor getting groomed, and three males jumped out of a van with medium-sized weapons and through a bag on top of her head and dragged her into the back of the van, she was brought to an abandoned warehouse and they began elite torture on her using gasoline and jumper cables to crucify her even more, Tony soon was to realize his wife never came home at the Beauty parlor run so he began to worry in though something bad had happened to her while she was out and about, Tony called up a few of the other Cavallero's and they all loaded up looking for the where abouts of Tony's wife, around three AM they had found a black van parked outside of a ran down warehouse close to the middle of no where , they kicked the door down and seen Tony's wife, two Cavallero's opened fire on the Ramano's there killing both of them almost instantly, Tony was able to retrieve his wife and flea the scene before the police arrived.

    A new era.

    After the CK of my main character, Antoine Vallois, a new one will arise and this thread will follow his journey in the ranks of the Los Santos Police Department and his life around it.
  8. Top Hat Society Business incubator. Political action organization. People of class and fashion. The Top Hat society is comprised of a series of business leaders who have common shared interests and goals. A group that is dedicated to their own empowerment in the legal world of business and communication. It's members come from a wide range of backgrounds from café owners to leaders of industry and interior designers. All members of the Top Hat society are not bound by a code of laws, or an omerta. Instead, they join only to gain access to the elite nature of it's people and it's associates. Whether you need an emergency bartender, a loan of 50,000, or maybe just a friendly ear to vent we will be a consistent factor in the elevation of your goals. The Top Hop society is interested in the the luxury aspects of high society, fashionable dress, and penthouse views. Members would rather enjoy a brandy and cigars then a beer in loud club. A game of poker over a game of dice. There is an aim to dress well, eat well, and live well in each others company and there is somewhat and emphasis of showing up as your best person. No, a top hat is not needed. No hat is needed, in fact. But a sense of fashion and respect for yourself is. Associate members can expect invitations to many fancy galas, high profile events, late night card games, and cigar sessions on the balcony. Members have access to the contact details of other members as well as access to association owned facilities and assets. To join the society, there is no fee or great lengthy application process. To become a member is to be invited by another member. After approval from us, you will be issued a card and added to our personal contact list where we will notify you upon our meetings. Members can upgrade their status to platinum for a nominal fee which comes with added perks. The association has a great interest in supporting politicians financially and promoting causes it believes will elevate itself and the people of the city. It functions partially as a campaign PAC and attempts to levy it's political influence through hard campaigning of all our respectful industries and dutiful financial support. Candidates who are supported by the association can expect business's to display campaign signs in their windows and host events in the name of said candidate. It is through this type of effort we aim to have an impact on the direction of the city. The association seeks to provide a platform of unity. For example, if a problem customer is causing problem in one store they may seek the assistance of other members to come to their aide, and vice versa, and in the event that a person causes problems in Tony's Bar he will find himself not welcome at Vanessa's Flower Shop either. We share in each others misery and pain sell as joy and profits. We act in unity, but we are not beholden to each other. Nothing is owed, but everything is given. OOC Information We seek to be in the grey area where many players fall. Not really a criminal or in a faction but not a police officer or a lawyer either. Roleplayers in the association do not give us CK perms or agree to only RP in our faction alone etc. We seek to be an open ended group with a clear focus on attracting and promoting unique character ideas, business concepts, and interesting dyamics. We aim to have a "family-esque" aspect to our members where we are not bound by a criminal blood bond or being in the same police unit but by business and shared common interests. At present, there isn't much that sort of fills that gap. You have to "settle in" to something whereas many people seek to remain unsettled. This group is for you and anyone else that wishes an alternative environment from just their criminal enterprise or legal law shindig. I would also like to eventually host some session based roleplay where we have sort of DND inspired events and influenced roleplay that everyone is participating in that has some interesting and compelling ideas that no one else is really doing. Such as fun and unique ideas like looking in the desert for lost artifacts or organizing a parade to celebrate Annual Muffin Day. Things that are not done but could be fun to roleplay and a different tempo from what is present now. At the end of the day, This will have that "people to RP with" aspect for those who sometimes don't have "people to RP with". Many people come to RP with me when I run my cafes and I see familiar faces who generally I don't believe have a posse or anything like that due to not being in a strict faction. I hope we can be the "not so serious" option for them. TL;DR - The faction for those who don't want to be in a faction and are not gangbanging or being a cop.
  9. This character thread will follow the development of John "Scatter" Madeira, and may touch on some darker subjects, you've been warned! Born March 21st, 1984 in Dallas, Texas, John's only sister, Adeline, followed a few years after. Their father, Adrian, was a stonemason, a hard working man on a nine to five grind, and while he may've had little education outside of it, he was the type of wise that a long, troubled life may land you, while their mother, Jane, was left to be a stay at home mom, one to resort to alcohol in turn to her own long, troubled life. The moment things got stressful—with two kids to manage, they got stressful a lot—she did just that, and in turn, violence frequently followed. As wise as this man was, he was blinded by a love for his wife, John speaking up on his own with Adeline too scared to follow doing him little favors in convincing him of who his wife had become, yet he always stuck by her side. "You're no son of mine", years later, the last words spoken to John by his father and the last words he needed to hear to know it wasn't worth the effort, the death of his sister, having turned to drugs, breaking apart the family as it was. John, on the other hand, turned to the army, Operation Iraqi Freedom, MNF-I; perhaps they were both distracting themselves from the past, just in different ways. From 2003, it was 2006 when the impact caused by the force of a IED explosion shot out his back. Though he temporarily lost the use of his legs, he considered himself one of the luckier ones. This left John medically discharged and turning to Los Santos, Sandy Shores to settle. A few months later, he met a woman, Linn, one that he grew quite fond of and started to see. She lived with her father in Stab City, Harold, AKA "Hardy", a member of the Lost MC, of course, she only introduced him as she was already expecting their daughter, maybe not the best start between John and Harold, though respect was enough to fix that. Adeline was their daughter's name, named after John's sister, John, much like his father, taking a nine to five in a construction company, where he'd often head to the city to do so. With John pushing himself, the old injury began to act up, so he carried on after in the less legal route, gaining further trust with Linn's father, "Hardy", by assisting him in his drug trafficking, though a dispute between club and client, one day, wound up with Hardy's death and one very distraught daughter. This and the whole illegal employment was enough to push Linn away from John, saying she needed time, and so she left the father and daughter duo on their lonesome, in no mental space to look after her. Though it's not like John's much better off, his daughter was and is his world, vowing to himself he'd never fail in protecting her or being there for her, even with his many, many flaws, trials and errors.

  11. Then. Grew up with a humble upbringing in South Philadelphia to Philip & Valerie Martorano. Humble it was, until Philip got convicted for tax fraud in 2008 for five years, leaving her without a father-figure at the age of 10. Valerie, the mother of three left all by herself to take care of the kids, collectively decided with Phil it’s best for Ellie to live with her brother, Roy Casella in Staten Island. Watching Roy come home late and often bicker with her wife, Ellie at an early age started picking up she wasn’t born to a family of saints. Although, spending most of her key teenage years in a relatively urban setting compared to Philadelphia, she quickly caught and adapted to the change in lifestyle New York threw at her, becoming more outgoing while developing a keen interest in sports & business. Ellie moved back to Philadelphia after his father’s release. Missing the main growing years of his children, Philip now finally had the chance to spend time with his kids and be there for them, however the damage of a father-figure missing when needed was already done, be it Ellie or her siblings. With her father having moved from Philly to LS in the ‘expansion of his construction company’, as soon as she finished her high school, she decided to move and settle in with him, finishing her Bachelors in Business Administration at the ULSA. The thread will follow her development. I've been playing this character for a few months now, although I always wanted to do a topic, kept putting it off, but here we go now. I'll start with some notable scenes from when I started this char that have been a part of her development!
  12. Leonard was born in South Omaha Nebraska, in a little town called Riverview just beside the Niobrara River in the Midwestern USA. In 1956, Leonard was born to an Angelo & Patricia Cicciarello who are now both deceased, thanks to old age. He graduated high school in 1974, when he was 18. He finished high school and started working as a bookmaker for a local Riverview Luppino soldier named Martin Langella. In 1975, Leonard became officially connected in the Paparello Crew, in Paul Luppino's era. Leonard never got to do too much talking or socializing with Paul, but Paul acknowledged Leonard as an associate in Carlo Paparello's crew and kept their relationship rather distant. Leonard also met his wife Lucia this year, as she was still a sophomore in High School, a 3 year difference. Leonard was starting to learn that he was persistent around this age, and refused to take no for an answer upon being scrutinized by the love of his life. He persisted, and they officially started dating the same year they met each other. Six years would pass, Leonard had stayed loyal to Lucia, as she did to him. Leonard's relationship with Lucia grew to a level of no return and Leonard eventually proposed to her in 1981, when she turned 22. By this time, Leonard was a 25 year old hustler in Nebraska's underdog crime family. Paul Luppino himself attended Leonard Cicciarello's wedding, after 6 years of loyalty Paul started to open up to Leonard. Paul never got incredibly close to Leonard because Carlo Paparello, Paul's captain, was very strict about his men mingling with the higher ups. But Paul Luppino donated $30,000 to Leonard at his wedding, as a wedding gift. He also left Leonard a personal handwritten letter expressing how proud he is of him, and suggested that he had confidence that Leonard had what it took to be one of them. Obviously, the letter had to be vague, but he sure enough acknowledged Leonard and expressed his mild appreciation for him. In 1983, Paul Luppino died from complications of diabetes. Leonard was never able to develop the relationship he wanted to, with Paul. But instead, Paul went down as a legend among the men of Leonard's time. He was remembered as a dear leader and a friend of all wiseguys in North and South Omaha, family or not. Luppino captain Carlo Paparello, Leonard's superior, assumed power without forgiveness. He basically threatened the other captains by promising to start a war with the Biase organization if he wasn't picked. Carlo Paparello hated the Biase organization and he didn't keep it much of a secret, and he also expressed his disdain for Paul Luppino for being "too easy" on the Biase organization. None of the other captains dared to get in between Carlo and his self affirmed claims, and power shifted directly over to him. This made life hard for Leonard, at the ripe age of 27, but as a member of Paparello's crew before he assumed the boss position, this meant certain induction in the next coming years for him. Unfortunately for the rest of the family, Carlo Paparello was their boss for 34 whole years, from this point on. In 1985, Leonard Cicciarello assisted in the murder of associate-turned-informant, Patrick Garrety. Leonard was responsible for taking the informant into a whorehouse where he was murdered and made an example of. A day after the murder, Pat Garrety was found in a bush under an overpass hogtied by yarn & shot twice in the back of his head, a signature execution style for Midwestern gangsters. In 1986, Leonard masterminded a $230,000 drug heist in North Omaha. Leonard's gang, associates in the Langella Crew & Martin Langella all jumped out on a heroin deal Leonard set up. After the drugs were stolen, Leonard told the drug dealers that this is what they deserve for selling in their city without permission. The drug dealers immediately left Omaha without an ounce of trouble or pushback. In 1987, everyone was already calling him "Cici." It was a street name that stuck with him for the rest of his life. Leonard Cicciarello was well known and well respected among the members of his family. Martin Langella proposed sponsorship of Leonard to become an official soldier in the Luppino Crime Family. The new boss, Carlo Paparello accepted, having been familiarized with Cicciarello over the years. Cici would go onto blend in well as a soldier for 5 years. He'd spend his time mingling with his own family as well as members of the Biase organization who took a liking to Cicciarello. Before he knew it, he had a whole bunch of names now. "Cheech," "Lenny Riverview," & of course "Cici." A small handful of people started calling him "Skippy" because he'd never pay his tab at the local bars after he got made, but that nickname was short lived after he made it known that he hated that name. 1991 comes along and this is where life started to change for Leonard. Tony Biase, long time friend of Paul Luppino & lifelong kingpin of Omaha Nebraska, passes away just years after his release from prison. As the Omaha underworld began to gather around in mourning, Carlo Paparello, the infamous, makes a disrespectful remark about Biase, at the man's wake. Perplexed, shocked & extremely insulted, the Biase organization members force Carlo & his men out of the wake in an intense moment of resentment. Some would say this was the beginning of the end for Luppino, this very day. The start of a very slow, very sour collapse. Nine years go by. Nine Hellish years, for Leonard. Leonard, as a soldier under Paparello's command was always checking his corners and watching his back. Leonard has already lost friends as a result of Paparello's misbehavior and disrespect. Nine years of losing friends and losing business, before something finally paid off. At the cost of a dear friend, Leonard's life changed once again. Martin Langella was killed in a car accident by a driver hopped up on Methamphetamine and that man was immediately imprisoned for Manslaughter. With Martin gone, Carlo Paparello figured Leonard for 44 years old, married for 19 years, 2 kids with Lucia. It has been decided that Cicciarello has paid his dues. He was promoted to "captain" in the year 2000. In the year 2004, he busted out a local bathhouse, when the owner couldn't pay his debt for a loan. Raymond Murphy was a drug addict who pushed H through the joint. Leonard took over his rackets and ran up the check on the business, making it his place of operation for 8 whole years, out of his 12 year run as a captain. In turn, Leonard managed to keep the bath-house open, but Raymond Murphy was not satisfied with his wages and decided to turn Leonard in to the authorities. Leonard was arrested on federal money laundering and fraud charges. Leonard's reign as captain came to an end as he was sentenced to 5 years in Nebraska State Penitentiary. Leonard served his 5 years without saying a word to anyone although he was under suspicion of having ties to Omaha's Cosa Nostra. In 2012, the storm came. Ties with the Biase Family have finally snapped after 21 whole years of tension, paranoia, deteriorating respect & even violent fistfights between members. A war was afoot, and everyone in the Midwest knew it. The Civella Family and the Biase Family gave Carl Paparello his ultimatum. They said to leave Nebraska and never return, or face their wrath. Of course, as expected, Carl Paparello told the board members from these families to go fuck themselves. Verbatim. Over the course of 5 years, from 2012 to 2017, covert tactics were used against Luppino. Dirty, covert tactics. People were manipulated into ratting out members of their own family. The police were tipped off to wiretap all of the Luppino owned establishments & homes. Sting operations ensued, testimony shot through the roof and by the start of the very last quarter of 2017, Carlo Paparello and his ENTIRE board, were indicted, tried and convicted on federal racketeering charges. 25 years to life for each member, pretty much sentencing them to death at their age. Carlo Paparello serves 25 years without parole, destined and certain to die in a maximum security prison. The Luppino Family was rendered finished in Omaha. In September of 2017, Leonard Cicciarello finishes his 5 year stretch. He is released back out onto the streets with 2 felony convictions and a wife & family who picked him up from the pen. He came home to a Biase controlled neighborhood, not used to seeing what seemed like new faces, but were actually old faces. Confused, perplexed and befuddled, Leonard managed to get in contact with a Biase family member in the neighborhood. Out of respect for Leonard, the soldier told Leonard about everything that happened while he was away. He even agreed what happened was out of favor with the local wiseguys, but what's done is already done. He was given a phone number of a board member in Chicago's Outfit. He received the blessing to start operating in Los Santos and Leonard decided not to stage any pushback against the Biase family. Because of this decision, Leonard became respected among other bosses and the leftover members of the family, eventually landing him at the very top of Luppino's new ranking system. In late October, shortly after his release and realization that he had no more future in Nebraska, he had his sights set on Los Santos. He worked his way into the streets from scratch, with the men he considered dear. He managed to make contact with a few other "friends" in the city, outside of their organization, not their society. He then would go on to reorganize his ranks with the key people who voted him in as new boss after Paparello & his entire board's indictments. Jerry Delfini, Larry Corvotti, Georgie Calcagno, Phil Romano, all recognized names in Nebraska's criminal society. All of these men reorganized their organization within two weeks. Larry, Lenny's old cell-mate came out of prison around the time Lenny did, and started the Luppino family's very first crew in Los Santos, in the third era. Jerry Delfini took council, helping out with the hard calls and keeping the rules advised and on the table. Phil Romano served as the family's Underboss in these times of recovery, advising and overseeing the growth of the first crew. Larry brought in a guy from Youngstown, Pete Romagnoli. He brought in a kid named Francis Marchetti, from Los Santos and guys like "Gio" Cullotta straight in from the other side. All of these names eventually grew into the organization that made up today's Luppino organization. Moving and avoiding retaliation against the Biase organization's covert tactics, it wasn't easy for these boys, despite their progress. For Lenny and his group, it was a hard pill to swallow. Besides that, the new people were showing up late or not showing up at all, weren't paying tribute to their higher ups, it was a shit show. No respect, he'd figure. But just as things seemed to be getting either much much better or a little more worse each day, things most certainly got much much worse for this group of struggling outcasts. They had a run in with one of the Bonnanos in Los Santos, one that ended out of both of their favor. Far far away from home, Leonard thought. The soldier in the New York family drew his gun on Leonard Cicciarello, not 1 month after he made his presence known in the new city. This started a major, major issue for the family and Leonard himself, unbeknownst to him. When a 62 year old man, seemingly at the end of his rope goes into a dark place, the lights go out and darkness takes over. This cornered old man went into that darkness, and came out with eyes as black as night. No question, it was obvious to even his own members, Ole Cici was done being pushed around. He really went into the darkness, they say. Leonard organized a strategic place to stay while he started making ultimatums and playing with this guy's head. Delfini and Corvotti coordinated outside moves to reach out to their reserved group of friends. He used his temper to confuse and manipulate the members of the said crew. He made phone calls and started rumors as if he was picking away at his prey before his meal. And in just one very long, very drawn out month, 6 people, 4 of which were Luppino affiliated were murdered. It got ugly enough to make a lifetime stink over, as he dispatched his very few scouts and hitters. As the shit began to hit the fan, out of the endless blue, members of this so called "crew" had somehow ceased to exist. Paranoid for several weeks, holed up in the same house, staring at the same walls, he'd soon come to hear that there is no longer any trace of this rivaling crew. Not a single person has seen a single face for two weeks. It was official, they ran. Word got out, bosses contacted Leonard and set out to meet with his Consigliere to get the scoop. After a very short lived debate on the meaning of this chaos, they decided to give Leonard a pass, in regards to his recent complications. They asked that Leonard try to promote growth, now that they're out, and let all the bad blood die, should they ever return. This meant victory in the eyes of the stubborn, jaded old man. Coming out of his shell, Leonard capitalized heavily and eventually took over Los Santos's Cosa Nostra underworld, assuming the role as Capo Di Tutti Capi or "Boss of all bosses." He spends his days waiting for someone he approves of to sit on the board with him, to expand opportunity for Cosa Nostra as a whole in the city. Re-establishing, Leonard formed an alliance with other groups in the city, outside of their own. He did right by a few folks who meant something, they did right by him right back. As new relationships developed, this group slowly formed into what's known in Los Santos's streets today as "the council." A multi-organization super alliance, bound by rules and standards set by all parties involved, for a better class of their city's gangsters. This became the nail in the coffin, Leonard Cicciarello has fully and officially rekindled the Luppino family, with the help of the people he spent over fourty years of his life with in Omaha. Today, Leonard Cicciarello spearheads the organization, while his members develop a reputation of their own. He is totally unknown by authorities and has not developed a single criminal charge since his release six months ago. He spends most of his recent days with his wife Lucy, and his daughter Dianna, keeping tabs on his close and valued friends. Having avoided war twice, one by choice, one by coercion, he continues to expand his empire using the business fronts his family took up for legal income, leading a double life as a friendly midwestern family man, and the boss of Los Santos's brand new addition to the long list of organized crime groups. The Luppinos have successfully set up rackets and fronts all over the city, thanks to their loyalty and teamwork. Construction, drug trafficking and arms trafficking earned them their nut in the beginning, until they got into gambling, prostitution, porn, car theft, money laundering, loansharking, blackmail, fraud, extortion, kidnapping for ransom against their enemies and of course, murder where it was deemed necessary. Rumors in the street suggest that the "italians" are suspected to be responsible for at least 10 to 12 gangland murders since their 5-6 month arrival in late october. In just 6 short months, they doubled, then tripled in size. Leonard Cicciarello is Los Santos' "Boss of all bosses."
