  3. This thread will serve as a chronicle of Joaquin "Smiley" Montoya's life as he navigates through this mad city called Los Santos. Joaquin is an 18 year old hailing from Vespucci and a member of a local gang called Terror Town 13. In here you will find snippets of his day to day life, some as mundane as cooking food for himself, others will include gang business and even about his journey as a tattoo artist looking to make it big in the world of tattooing.
  4. 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.))

INTRODUCTION Originally posted on LSRP, this is a summary of what I've learned from recent research on girls and women involved with the street gangs of California and Texas. I focused on Hispanic Los Angeles and young women in male-dominated gangs. This is mostly about developing female characters, but you can also get ideas for the dynamics between male and female characters in gang RP. This isn't about surface level femininity and masculinity, this is about the deeper connections between characters and what links them to their communities and gangs. I'm also interested in girls and women who maybe aren't full gang members, so when I say "homegirl" we're talking about a few different types. A lot of this info can apply to other gang cultures, but gender roles feel stricter in Hispanic gangs. I hope you can find some ideas here to inspire your RP. Thanks for reading! 2. BIG TRENDS FOR HOMEGIRLS * They are linked to their gang through male relatives, male friends, male romantic partners. * Their status in the gang is linked to the rank/respect of their male connection. * They are from the same neighbourhood as their gang. * They don't become leaders in their own right, but they can be influential representatives for shotcallers. * Even the "tomboys" are rarely shooting guns, and violent activities will usually be led by their homeboys. 3. STATE OF RESEARCH Please skip this paragraph if you just want the info! I’ve listed all my sources at the end. This is pre-pandemic research. I've tried to avoid journalists and amateur writers to focus on academic work because California is home to some of the oldest gangs and biggest universities in the world, so there’s a long tradition of high quality gang research that digs real deep and doesn't get enough love. A journalist might get the story after it happens, but many academics immerse themselves through local programs and conduct multiple interviews with active members over many months or years. To me it looks like you need a lot of interviews before people get real. Honestly there isn't much research on female gang members/associates, probably because they don't get arrested as much as their homeboys and are less likely to get involved in gunplay or violence. Sometimes their homeboys don't let them get interviewed (Latino gang members seem more protective/controlling than black or white gang members). Lots of this research was conducted directly in neighbourhoods and schools, not through the correctional system or courts. There is so much propaganda and sensationalist content out there about gangs, but these research techniques treat them like a legitimate cultural and economic phenomenon. The female side is a whole world that seems to be invisible to the authorities, but the authorities are probably too busy with the male side. In California there doesn't seem to be any all-female drug trafficking gangs or prison gangs, so a key element is their dynamic with the men in their lives. 4. MOTIVATIONS FOR INVOLVEMENT What's anyone's motivation for joining a culture? You're born and raised in it. If you're getting involved with these types of street gangs, you grew up in the gang's neighbourhood. Even if you're an immigrant, your family would have moved into the neighbourhood when you were still a child. But female gang members will usually be born to U.S.-born parents (parents from Mexico and Latin America are more likely to keep girls inside and away from gangs). Family, barrio, hood, gang, it can all be the same thing. James Diego Vigil writes "Latino culture is commonly known to value the institution of the family, and gang members, both males and females, carry on this tradition, but in a warped, readapted version of the original." Family expectations are much stricter for girls, so girls from non-gang families are more likely to be kept at home and away from the gang. But if her parents are gang-affiliated, she might be expected to uphold gang traditions. Girls from gang-affiliated families are "labelled before their involvement in the gang has even begun". Everyone just expects them to be involved one day. If they're spending time with relatives who are gang members, this explains how they get "blessed in". These girls were involved before they knew what that meant. Family life is the key factor for gang involvement and "girls tend to come from even more stressed family situations than boys" according to work by Avelardo Valdez and Vigil. This can mean neglectful or abusive family situations. One study found the majority of girls involved in gangs had run away from home at least once, but this wasn't true for the boys. Many girls ran away multiple times. One girl explained: "My homies will always find me a place to stay when shit gets too bad at home." Another says: "We're like one big family" and "They were always there for me." A girl nicknamed Tiny said abuse at home "is a lot of why I was down in the projects everyday just kicking it. I never wanted to go home. So I would just be out on the streets getting shot at, getting budded out, and kicking it with my homeboys." Traditionally masculine (machismo) type motivations like power and money don't seem to be the big factor for girls. Many of them seem to be joining for protection, belonging, community, family. These can be seen as traditionally feminine (marianismo) motivations. Female involvement has increased over the hundred years of Los Angeles gang history. Mexican-American girls used to be raised by parents and grandparents with no gang connections. Now there are more parents and grandparents passing down gang traditions. Open the spoiler below to see why girls get involved in their own words, when talking to researchers. There is a key trend: 5. THE MALE CONNECTION Girls aren't getting involved with a gang full of people they don't even know. All the girls in the Avelardo Valdez study were "integrated into the male gangs through their relationships with the male members" and 43% had boyfriends involved in a gang. They also reported having friends, brothers, cousins, and other relatives involved. I'll summarize 3 types of homegirls based on their male connection. These are like character backgrounds or origin stories, and multiple types can apply to the same character. * Relatives: Girls born into gang-affiliated families make up nearly 80% of all female gang members according to Vigil's "The Projects". So getting involved might not even be a choice, but just something that naturally happens over time. It's like getting involved in the family business. If your family members are getting arrested, harrassed by police, or attacked by rival gangs, you might start seeing things like a gang member sees them. The gang and your family are the same thing. If you're helping your family day-to-day, you're already involved. * Friends: If you grew up in a gang neighbourhood, you probably grew up with boys who became gang members. These could be your childhood friends. You probably know each other's families. If you keep spending time with them, you could get drawn into their world. The vibe is similar to being a relative. * Girlfriends: These are girls in long-term monogamous relationships with male gang members. They often have children together, which is a big reason why they're less involved in street activity than other types of girls. They are respected for their loyalty to their man. They're usually childhood friends of gang members before dating them, so they aren't new to the neighbourhood. For all 3 types, influence and respect is linked to the status and rank of the male connection. Whatever level of gang activity your male connection is involved in, you could be expected to support or help him in some way. If your male connection rises all the way to the top, which probably means he becomes incarcerated and integrated into a prison gang, you could become his secretary or senora, his hand on the streets. It's like an ancient queen ruling the kingdom when her husband is away at war. I'll say a quick word on female cliques. The vibe I'm picking up is that female cliques are rare and mostly just labels that mean "the homegirls", they're not carrying out lots of girls-only activity, they're mostly working with the male gang members. Female gang members will often be in the male clique based on age. The male connection is the big factor for most gang activity. 6. HOMEGIRL TYPOLOGY There are different types of girls and women involved with these street gangs. I've summarized the types described by several researchers. These aren't official names used on the street, there is so much slang that gets used differently in different places. These "types" are just to give you ideas for characters. One character might be several types at once. The Good Girl Type You might not expect these girls to get involved with a gang, but in Hispanic street gangs there are many benefits to being seen as feminine in a more traditional way. These are the "school girls" with "conventional lifestyles" staying out of trouble. Well, that's how it appears on the surface. These are probably the ones most likely to get blessed in, and they might be the most common type overall. These are the girls that male gang members want to date and marry. Being "good" makes them valuable for lowkey work behind the scenes. Being "good" doesn't mean they're nice, it just means they aren't getting their hands dirty like the boys. And "good" doesn't need to mean "well behaved" in the traditional sense. Almost all the girls in the Valdez study had used drugs and about 60% had run away from home at least once. One of the girlfriends in the study said: "I like to hang out with the guys. We just kick back, smoke out, and have fun." While many homeboys expect to be active gang members until they die, it's easier for homegirls to become inactive. This is common if they become mothers, but they can always be pulled back in by their connections, including their own children one day. They are often lowkey, inactive, dormant, in hibernation waiting for the right season to bloom. This type of homegirl will rarely be arrested or attract police attention. If her male connections are incarcerated, she might be visiting them and keeping them connected to the neighbourhood. She might hide guns or drugs for her male connection or even hide him at her place, but she's not carrying a gun around or handling business on the street. She might be helping with drugs behind the scenes, but she's avoiding violence. For GTA RP an example of a good girl type would be a character from a gang neighbourhood that is involved in a lot of legal/civilian RP, but is still regularly RPing with active gang members while trying to avoid the attention of government factions or hostile gang factions. To be useful to the gang, the important thing is that she's seen as a normal girl attending school or working a legal job. Her male connection probably feels protective and wants to keep her out of jail/prison. If he's always known her as "good", especially if there's romantic feelings, he'll probably want her to stay like that. There can be tension if she starts acting like a tomboy. But if a tomboy becomes a good girl (like by becoming a mother) that's less of a problem in the eyes of her homeboys. The line between good girl and tomboy is blurred. This can be a big source of development for characters. I believe RPing this type of character can be very dynamic and suspenseful, because RPing around the edge of the darker elements of the gang makes those elements more intense and mysterious. Good girl types also serve an important role in giving extra meaning to the RP of other gang members. They can represent why the neighbourhood is worth fighting for, and be a reminder of peaceful times. The Tomboy Type Even if a homegirl is involved in traditionally male types of gang activity, she's not the same as a male gang member. There are no female prison gangs in California, so the more tomboyish a tomboy becomes, the more likely she is to get taken out of the game. The balance between feminine and masculine is a difficult line to walk. Most likely a tomboy will be in a supportive role. One advantage a female gang member has is that many people, including cops, won't see her as a threat compared to the male gang members. The relationship to violence is complicated by this. Female gang members might carry guns, but most of the time these guns are meant to be used by the male gang members. One East L.A. example of the tomboy type could be Mayra as described by James Diego Vigil. She grew up in an abusive household. She moved out and made her own money. She became a respected female gang member known for her fighting abilities and got involved in regular gang activity. She always had a gun on her, but it was for her homeboys to use. She would hide guns and drugs in her purse or bra when the authorities were around. On rare occasions she would use the gun herself, but she was able to avoid attention by not having a reputation for violence. Eventually she became inactive because she became pregnant. "That's when I changed," she said. "Now that I have my son I have to think about him, I don't even party anymore." The most extreme example of a tomboy could be Loca, from the same study. One of her homeboys said: "She has a shaved head and everything. She dresses like a guy and has two tattoos of clowns on her neck. She's down. She'll throw it down with guys, she doesn't give a fuck." But by becoming more "like a guy" Loca is more likely to get arrested and won't be an active gang member anymore. Her homeboys will still be active in prison, and meanwhile the more traditionally feminine gang members like Mayra will still be on the street carrying a gun. James Diego Vigil and Mendoza-Denton show that gang affiliated girls will change into a masculine style of clothing if they're expecting fights or violence. But most tomboys probably won't be like Loca with the shaved head, most tomboys will probably be acting more feminine or more masculine according to what they're doing. Maybe they go with a more feminine vibe at home, at church, or partying. Even on the streets a tomboy like Mayra might have a purse to hide a gun or drugs, and if she appears too masculine (like Loca) she could get the wrong attention from cops or rival gangs. The Senora Type Acting more "like a guy" isn't the female path to power. A gang member like Loca is less likely to rise to the top than Mayra, and they're probably both less likely than a good girl type. If you're looking to RP a female gang leader, the senora type, your character might want to stay out of prison. And if you're RPing a male gang leader, your character might want to find a good senora to stand by his side. Testimony from a former Mexican Mafia member (US vs Loza) suggests this is an emerging trend for incarcerated underworld bosses, who rely on their wives and girlfriends to carry out their will on the streets. Senoras can also be sisters, daughters, or other female relatives. They can collect taxes on behalf of imprisoned leadership, direct business, distribute drugs, and order violence. That's just the ultimate example, since most senora types will be supporting lower ranked gang members, but the same ideas apply: every female character probably knows her male connection will be arrested one day and that's when she can hold it down for him on the outside. She can become his link to the streets, she can deliver messages, handle his money, handle his commissary, even smuggle things in for him. This is why a senora type most likely started as a good girl type, because avoiding the most dangerous gang activity will keep her free to act on behalf of her male connection. Even if he's free and out on the streets, she can still handle his business in the shadows. Male gang members with their own senora type should have an advantage over their rivals. One early example of a top senora was allegedly Raisin of Florencia 13, who joined the gang as a 10 year old. Her uncles were gang members and she grew up in the gang's neighbourhood. One older gang member, possibly from her uncles' generation (and so maybe feeling like her uncle) declared himself her protector, and when he was imprisoned he became Florencia's leader. The one charge on Raisin's file suggests she played a part in smuggling drugs for the gang. But like many female gang members, she became inactive after having children, but inactive members can be useful in ways active members can't. She was working as a real estate agent when she was given the "key" to the neighbourhood by her adoptive uncle: the imprisoned Florencia leader. I'd say she started off as the good girl type, which is exactly what made her a good senora. Unlike a parolee, she could avoid attention and suspicion. And unlike the man she replaced, she probably wasn't going to tax the wrong people or go around Florencia hoods raping girls. She was a business woman, she could handle money, she was a respected mother, but she also grew up with homies who could handle the streets while she pretended to be an ordinary real estate agent. If she had been seen as too masculine or like a "hood rat", she wouldn't have been a better choice than a male parolee or other gang member. This is just one story from Los Angeles Magazine, but Raisin's story matches what we see in other examples studied by scholars like David Skarbek. In the violent world of gang politics, an imprisoned shotcaller could feel threatened by the "machismo" of his lieutenant running free in his neighbourhood. In contrast I believe the Florencia shotcaller saw Raisin as an embodiment of "marianismo" and traditional feminine loyalty who would not betray him. The shotcaller knows many male gang members are looking to make money for themselves, but a "good" woman is expected to make money for her family. Raisin is the shotcaller's family, therefore she's a better tax collector than a male gang member. Raisin was a rare example back in the day, but I think this mentality explains why paranoid crime lords are now becoming more likely to trust wives, girlfriends, and female relatives to run operations on the street. There is a possible 4th type: the party girl type. But she's not a homegirl. I'm really not talking about party girls in this guide. They don't have deep connections with male gang members, they're just girls who party with the gang. Some might call them "hoodrats" and consider them to be sexually available. This is probably where a lot of the "sexed in" rumours come from, but these girls are viewed completely differently than the other 3 types. One gang member in Vigil's studies said: "We wouldn't bust a train on a school girl. That would be fucked up." So there can be a code of gang machismo that protects the other 3 types of girl. This guide is really about the homegirls who are protected by that code. Research by Laidler/Hunt shows homegirls use homeboys to "keep aggressive male members in check", and the Raisin story suggests this is a code of chivalry/honour that was taken seriously by major Hispanic gangs like Florencia 13 and the Mexican Mafia. It can also be bad for business if members of the same operation are killing each other. Raping "school girls" and generally disrespecting OGs in Florencia territory might have ended the careers of at least one tax collecting crew. But for female characters I think the super big key element here is the male connection: being close to a male gang member gets you involved and gains you protection. 7. PUTTING IN WORK: LOWKEY vs HIGHKEY Most women and girls involved with gangs are less involved with the crime and violence that captures attention. But the lowkey work is important to gang structure and can explain why some gangs have such deep roots and have survived for a hundred years. According to a study of housing projects in East Los Angeles: "The girlfriends, sisters, mothers, sexual partners, and homegirls of gang members are not merely passive auxiliaries to the males but in fact serve a variety of initiatory and supportive functions." The good girl and senora types would be involved with more lowkey work, and the tomboy types would be more involved with highkey work. The danger of highkey work is attracting attention from law enforcement. Many homeboys think "I'll either be dead or doing life by this time next year" (quoted from a 17 year old), but incarceration means potential prison gang involvement and advancement in the underworld hierarchy. But for homegirls, gang activity and advancement is put on pause when they're incarcerated. Kings can be made in prison, but queens can't. The Valdez study was able to survey gang activity from what I'd call good girls and tomboys. The senora types wouldn't be talking to researchers. Here's the percentage of girls who had helped male gang members with different activities: 55% held drugs 31% sold drugs 27% held weapons 24% shoplifted 19% carjacked 19% sold weapons 14% stole cars 13% broke into houses/buildings 12% robbed 12% engaged in "other" activities Look how many girls were holding drugs and weapons. The study says homegirls were "considered a safe haven for hiding the gang's weapons that were often discarded or destroyed after being used." And male gang members' "personal weapons were also held by these girls since the guys were always at risk for being stopped and searched by the police, especially if they were identified as gang members by the police". These are examples of lowkey work that even the good girl types might be doing. Hiding something is easier when you don't draw attention. Selling drugs could also be lowkey, as the Valdez study says girls were usually selling to "other female close friends and relatives". There is a lot of "work" that doesn't show up on these lists and surveys, mostly because it happens behind closed doors. This could be simply supporting a male partner or relative in daily domestic work, or this could be counting money, preparing drugs for sale, and generally handling behind-the-scenes aspects of money-making schemes. Many types of work might be seen as simply ways to help a friend, relative, or romantic partner. The line between family, gang, and community can be blurred. The most important lowkey work might be visiting incarcerated male gang members in prison and handling their affairs. I say "lowkey" in this case because it isn't obviously illegal in the way a burglary would be. Skarbek's research, which supports Rene Enriquez's 2018 testimony, shows women are increasingly becoming responsible for managing street gangs on behalf of incarcerated shotcallers. These "senora" types are increasingly responsible for managing crews of tax collectors, managing tax funds, ordering assaults or murders, and distributing drugs. They are sometimes referred to as "female shotcallers" but they are still taking direction and receiving their authority from the incarcerated shotcallers, who are often prison gang members. This trend is strong in the Sureno underworld, but it could also be an effective system for other types of gangs. In some cases the senora, who perhaps has too much of a criminal history herself, will have a "secretary" (who you can think of as another lower ranked senora type or good girl type) who conveys information between the senora and her male connection in prison. The important factor for the woman making the visits is that she doesn't have a big criminal record or visible tattoos. These visits can also be a good opportunity to smuggle in drugs, and although one study described this as more of a tomboy thing, the tomboy would probably still want to be more traditionally feminine, more like Mayra than Loca. Smuggling drugs in for a homeboy is similar to holding his gun all the time. 8. INITIATION RITUALS It might not be obvious when you're initiated into a gang as a member, and a female character can play an important role without acting like a male gang member. Gang and neighbourhood identity can get all mixed up together. Norma Mendoza-Denton’s interviews found that some Hispanic youth identified with gangs even if they weren’t “jumped in” or fully initiated members. If they lived in a gang neighbourhood, they would claim the local gang and would fight the enemies of their neighbourhood. The authorities had trouble identifying the real gang members. Mendoza-Denton describes it like being supporters of a sports team. This could describe the relationship some homegirls have with their homeboys before they get more involved. Nearly half the girls interviewed by Avelardo Valdez didn't get involved in "delinquent" activity in their first 2 years associated with a gang, but staying lowkey also creates opportunities to help a gang in other ways. The most powerful women will be lowkey enough to act on behalf of incarcerated gang leaders. Queens and princesses keep their hands clean. Clara Saavedra’s research describes several initiation options which should be familiar to gang RPers. Girls can be jumped in by female gang members or male gang members, or just walked in (blessed in). They can also have a one-on-one fight with a current gang member (fair fighting), commit a physical assault against a rival gang member, or commit any other illegal act to prove they're down. Vigil's research suggests only girls will jump in other girls, but it sounds like most girls (up to 80%) get blessed in because of family. They also might pass a test without even realizing they're being tested. A girl might smuggle drugs for her brother without realizing this is how the homeboys will decide she's down for the gang. It's about that male connection. Getting “sexed in” doesn’t seem to be a thing these days. The most detailed examples of sexual initiation I found were from outside Hispanic California. These seem to be new/unorganized gangs with weaker connections between gang members and the community. This vibe is different from Hispanic gangs that have existed for generations in the same neighbourhoods where everyone knows each other. Any Latina doing work for these gangs is probably either respected as a relative/girlfriend/wife (putting in lowkey work) or respected as a “tomboy” (putting in work like the homeboys). Many of the stories about “promiscuous girls” treated like "sex objects" are probably just unconnected girls who are partying with the gang but have no deeper involvement. When a homeboy talks about “running a train” on a girl, he’s not talking about a girl who is featured in a lot of the newer research. Gang machismo can be about sexual conquest, but it can also be about acting protective. Abusing a girl means disrespecting any homeboy connected to her. When a male gang member abuses the wrong girl, his own homeboys can come together to punish him. Studies talk about these girls having protection from sexual violence. They often join the gang to escape abuse at home. 9. PRISON In 2017, only 5% of California's prison population was female. Male gang members will gain more options for advancement in prison, but the opposite happens for their homegirls. For male inmates, prison gangs can represent the top of their hierarchy, giving them opportunities for deeper involvement in the politics and economics of the criminal underworld. For female inmates, they are cut off from the street life and gang activity. Female prison gangs don't exist in California according to David Skarbek's "Social Order of the Underworld". Here are some quotes from female inmates in his study: "There's more of a formal system with the men; they assume their roles and they know their positions. With women, it's not like that." "We are not like the men, because we learn to live with each other. We communicate. It is not a racial thing in here." Instead of organizing into gangs or cars, female inmates come together in "pairs or small families" that act more like "nuclear family units", where older inmates will mentor younger inmates. These families are much more casual and temporary, there is less violence, and rarely any weapons. Vigil and Diane Rodriguez found "a significant number of women and girls who are involved in gangs" in the prison system with an estimated 80% of one Los Angeles female facility being incarcerated for "gang-related" reasons. Gang identities might have led to their incarceration, but that no longer defines them inside the system. This creates an interesting challenge for any female character cut off from her gang. Maybe it's a relief, maybe it feels like exile, maybe it changes her perspective being separated from it. But the most powerful gang-affiliated women are not female inmates, the most powerful are female visitors to male inmates. Underworld princesses and queens visiting their king. We're talking about the senora types: women with strong personal links to incarcerated shotcallers and prison gang members, who are able to act on their behalf on the streets. So prison is very important for both male and female characters, just in different ways. 10. MACHISMO x MARIANISMO What makes a good woman or a good man? What does your character think? What did your character's parents teach them? Growing up, who did they look up to? Gang culture for male gang members can be described as an extreme or twisted type of masculinity. This probably applies to most gangs and types of organized crime, but Avelardo Valdez argues that "Mexican American culture reinforced by social context magnifies the differences between genders to a greater degree than many other cultures." Machismo (masculine) and marianismo (feminine) are two ways of looking at old school gender roles in Mexican/Hispanic/Chicano culture. Ideal men are physically strong, energetic, protective, aggressive, openly sexual and promiscuous. Ideal women are mentally strong, spiritual, submissive, selfless, sexually chaste and loyal. Men exist in public, women exist at home with the family. For many immigrant families, this meant the boys were allowed outside, where they could be recruited by gangs, but girls were kept inside. A "school girl" goes to school but she might not be allowed to join extracurricular sports or clubs after class, she would have to go straight home to study and help her family. But after multiple generations, when the definition of family changes to include the gang and neighbourhood, "help her family" also means "help her gang". Any girl with marianismo is girlfriend material for a gang member. One L.A. gang member in Vigil's study said: "I want a nice girl who is smart and can talk to me and really understand my feelings. One that can take care of her family and everything. I don't want to be with one of them hood rats." And "take care of her family" might mean having children with a male gang member. Many girls interviewed in these studies see pregnancy as the way to make their love last forever. Some girls get upset if their boyfriend uses a condom, because they see condoms as symbols of "one night" instead of "together forever". The idea of "forever" is also important to these young men who expect to die in their 20s. By having children who are raised by "a nice girl who is smart" they ensure their legacy lives on. Having a child is like getting your name up on a mural. Machismo and marianismo can be restrictive and damaging concepts for both men and women. We can see dark sides and romantic sides to these ideals. The dark side of machismo is dead and incarcerated men, just as the dark side of marianismo is women devoted to harmful men or young mothers raising children alone. The romantic side of machismo can be chivalry and honour, protective men who provide for their families. The romantic side of marianismo can be loyal women nurturing their family spiritually and holding communities together. The Laidler/Hunt study suggests many homegirls dislike "aggressive attempts to make them conform to more traditional notions of feminity, including sexual chastity, staying at home, cooking, and looking after children" but "defying or resisting these expectations can be severe, involving violence." But the same study also found girls often look down on other girls for not acting feminine according to the gang's definition. This tension can fuel RP. 11. EVERYDAY TENSION Homegirls will be coping with lowkey tension and fears every day, but I'm not talking about rival gangs or police. Lowkey tension is easy for us to overlook, but it can be a powerful element in your development and storyline. Think about your character's background and inner thoughts and feelings. Think about the side of your RP that won't appear in emotes or dialogue. If you're a girl involved with a gang, you might have experienced a chaotic home life and some type of abuse or neglect. This trauma can stay with you, this trauma might define future relationships, and is probably a factor in why you want to get out of your house and join the gang. Consider the coping strategies you developed if you grew up in a chaotic household. Think about how you bring that into everyday RP. Did your character learn to fight, flee, hide? Did they learn how to appease people, please people, avoid triggering other people's bad moods? Did they become super vigilant and aware of their surroundings? Did they become paranoid and mistrusting? Did they learn to suppress bad memories and anxiety with drugs and alcohol and partying? To repeat an earlier quote: "My homies will always find me a place to stay when shit gets too bad at home." But your ability to earn this protection depends on how well you fit that marianismo/feminine ideal. As discussed in the "Homegirl Typology" section, you get protection from the gang if you're a good girl, tomboy, or senora type. These are 3 different types of gang-approved femininity. But if you act too masculine, show disloyalty, or act promiscuous, you won't get protection. And your male connection might try to force you to be "feminine" and fit one of these 3 types, or else his own status will be in jeopardy, and he won't be able to protect you anymore. Homeboys are more likely to be killed by a rival gang, homegirls are more likely to be killed by their homeboys, especially their boyfriends. (60% of Latina homicide victims were killed by romantic partners.) It can be strange and confusing: you're seeking protection, love, and friendship from the people most likely to hurt you. It's not like your character will be thinking "this man is gonna hurt me" but on some level she'll be aware that he could be dangerous. This can create a strong pressure to obey marianismo. This is how you protect yourself, but this is also how you protect your male connection. You have to be feminine in the correct way, he has to be masculine in the correct way, and this protects both of you in the eyes of the gang. You might even push him to be more masculine. As a woman, you might tell him "act like a man" because you need him to have respect to protect you. If you're tied to this underworld culture, a key element that gets overlooked is: there is no escape from the world of machismo. Although you might try, like by putting yourself through school, moving away, cutting old ties. (Having a child might help, but Raisin shows how neighbourhood roots can pull you back.) Economically you might need to rely upon men (just as these men might need to rely upon the gang). Certainly if you want love, you have no choice but to love men. You can't magically become a lesbian to avoid men, and even if you were a lesbian (a rare situation), you would want to hide that. In all my research, the only examples of lesbians I could find were basically hoodrat types in black gangs who were treated like sex objects. 12. JOINING A GANG FACTION If you're looking to create a new female character and get involved, I recommend you check the gang faction threads and see who is RPing where, get a feel for the neighbourhood, see what their guidelines and expectations are. Some factions will tell you how to contact them OOCly, so that you can discuss character concepts before RPing with them. For street gang factions I think this is super helpful. This can be a solution to the awkward situation of two characters meeting ICly for the first time when they should have grown up together. I would only recommend RPing family with people you've RPed with before, since your characters will share so much backstory. You could also run with a backstory where your character grew up in the neighbourhood, but was sent to live with a relative somewhere because of problems at home. So when you come back after a few years, your character is moving back in with relatives who've been in the neighbourhood for a long time. That connection is so important. Most of the time I'd recommend starting with a good girl type. Even if your character isn't really like that, or she's looking to escape that vibe, this is how gang members would see her. This gives you story arc potential. This gives you backstory explanations for why the gang hasn't seen you around much: your family has been keeping you inside, you've been going to school, keeping out of trouble. Gang members who grew up in the neighbourhood would realistically remember seeing you around, remember taking a few classes with you before they started skipping, that type of thing. 13.

  7. 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.

  10. Carlos Molina Carlos Molina was born in Davis General Hospital on the 8th of August, 2006 to two Mexican immigrants, Carolina Pousa and Eddy Molina, who moved from Sinaloa, Mexico to avoid the cartel wars going on which dragged many innocent civilians into the conflict. They illegally crossed the border for the sake of giving their son a better life and settled into the bordering states major metropolitan city which is Los Santos which has a big Hispanic population especially in the Jamestown area of Rancho and have been living there ever since they moved which prompted him to also attend the local Davis Middle School , his parents work grueling 9-5 jobs under green cards obtained after a certain amount of years living in the United States to meet ends meet with his father being a local carpenter and his mother a full time nurse working several shifts over week as well as his father working for several clients caused for them both to be largely absent in the household accept whether it be in the afternoons or picking up Carlos despite all this the family still held a pretty close bond as most Hispanic households in Mexico and other Latino countries do which stood out like a sore thumb in Rancho as most families were broken or affected by gang violence. Carlos was no stranger to this harsh reality he would mostly see it out by his window at night hearing random gunshots and loud sirens shortly afterwards, from the drugged out homeless man walking through the middle lot barely able to stand straight to the group of gangsters hanging out by the cantina with a bottle of 40oz beer on one hand and a bag of weed in the other he saw it every day walking to school but he always maintained a somewhat optimistic view of it largely due to his young age the reality of his area had not set in yet as he knew it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows but from an early age his parents taught him what do to and who to stay away from, going as far to put him in school after programs at Davis Middle School largely taking a liking to baseball and soccer where he currently plays for the schools team. This kept him away most of the time but as the shifts got longer Carlos now goes outside with his bike and rides around to seek any way of passing the time in his empty and dull home. He also does other activities like play FIFA 15 on his old XBOX 360 and watch TV which he very much enjoys, overall Carlos is a decently normal kid with interest and passions which he looks to share with by maintaining a very outgoing and friendly personality like any other children his age but not in the same environment. This thread will follow the development and day to day life of Carlos Molina.
  11. V-Town Buffalos The Vespucci Buffalo Soldiers, is a Black nationalistic Street crew located within the La Puerta area of Vespucci stretching from low income apartments, and homes in the proximity of Bay City Avenue such as Tug Street, and Rub street, along within Melanoma Avenue as the remaining Black Majority of Vespucci would've been gentrified to either other regions within Los Santos or to low income enclaves such as Vista Del Mar where majority of the members of the Buffalo Soldiers would reside in. Ironically the Vista Del Mar would even compressed in with more affluent areas nearby. The group composes of mainly members with African American heritage but even others belonging to the category of “Black” as a category of race due to it’s rather nationalistic, and prideful roots of how it came to exist in the first place. However, it may even rarely hold members of other races under special circumstances due to the low income areas of Vespucci being rather a melting pot of different cultures. The group first started off as all young teenagers living within the same community of each other often hanging around and finding ways to make money through whichever hustle they can find, one thing they especially loved to do was carjacking, and joy riding when it was it's earliest stage of organisation until eventually the clique organised into that of an actual gang as more connections within the Black Car in jail and outside. More members would have also been joining and intiating into the Buffalos as the crew finally now has the manpower to operate like that of a gang. The gang would often be a rather tightly knit community often keeping top relations with the locals of La Puerta almost acting as the "robin hoods." Of the community, and the Vista Del Mar as the gang intends to keep top relations with the locals due to having been around each other and growing up for a long time seeing each other and having family that's all familiar with each other one way or another. The group eventually came to it's realisation of turning the clique into an actual crew banding together in order to escape from poverty within Vespucci Beach and doing whatever it takes to do so as long as it did not harm the community in La Puerta. One big reason for the formation of the Vespucci Buffalo Soldiers was due to the fact that white supremacist organisations, or other ethnic gangs in the vicinity may often come along and harass black residents living within the proximity of Vespucci whether getting robbed, beaten, or perhaps even killed as the juvenile locals eventually grew sick of that forming their own crew finding more power in unison operating as an organisation. Overall the reasoning for it’s prideful name to be known as the V-Town Buffalo Soldiers is due to their militant nature along with its sense of identity, with the older member’s drive to organize and band up to protect each other within an outnumbered %6'er yet tightly knit community in Vespucci with racism, and aggression received from other group using the name Buffalo Soldiers as reference to the actual regiment of African American soldiers in the US army due to one thing in common being Black, and militant. History of Black Population in Vespucci It could even be said that some of the locals or members of the crew would not describe them much as a “gang.” But, rather just soldiers with a common cause to defend their community against bigger threats within Vespucci and to support each other as a community with even the older influential members of the crew themselves not seeing this as a gang but rather a movement despite it very much operating like that of a gang in the end of the day with their financial gains mostly being from criminal activities, claiming a turf, and even bringing their sense of identity wherever they go tagging up spots in the La Puerta area especially around the apartments, and low income housing they reside in as a sense of pride and identity as members will usually wear Brown rags and even rocking Buffalo Bills merch as their sense of uniformity. They will also use other forms of uniformity such as tattoos relating to the Buffalos, or over all symbolism that is evident to being that of the Buffalo soldiers or even the neighbourhood they reside in. Although having hatred for white supremacist groups, along with other street gangs flaunting their power upon the black residents of Vespucci they usually appear to more focus on making money, along with gaining more power as a priority rather than constant clashes with other groups however do have no qualms engaging in conflict to those who trouble them but in the end of day their main motivation is money, and power in order to help them operate in respect of defending their community, along with bringing more profit towards the gang. While most gangs appear to make most of their profits from the sale of narcotics. This doesn't appear to be the case for the Buffalo Soldiers with members mainly having an affinity for grand theft auto with them being responsible for the increasing reports of missing vehicles, along with robberies being conducted on vehicles with members still yet to be caught in action from how covert their procedures area whenever engaging in vehicle theft. Eventually all that changed as the clique evolved into that of a gang with some form of organisation as nowadays they engage in other forms of criminal activities such as drug dealings, robberies, financial scams, as they grew more vast, and ambitious now adopting a policy of "hustle by any means." As the group grown larger they started facing away from their original affinity of grand theft auto, and joyriding from when the original founders of the group were often hardcore car thieves, and joyriders, as they now built more connections, and gained more manpower to operate like that of an actual gang rather than that of a clique. Members often have various ways of identifying themselves as stated they will usually flag themselves with Brown Rags, along with tattoos related to crew with abbreviations of “Buffalo Soldiers.” or overall symbolism related to the Buffalo soldiers or even the neighbourhood they reside in. Overall it could be easy to identify a member of the group if they appear to openly appear to flaunt their belonging to the gang or perhaps not if the member so chooses not to express their loyalty with tattoos but it can indeed be spotted out carefully from their choice of colours or their behaviour and members often having black nationalistic views in their choice of ideologies. They also appear to have an insignia team with that being of the Buffalo Bills as members will often wear merch or caps related to the Buffalo Bills even using tattoos related to the NFL team too in relation to the name "Buffalo Soldiers." OOC NOTE We are an open faction on request that qualité roleplay is provided along with following by the server rules, and overall providing an enjoyable and fun environment to create the community vibes! CK perms will automatically be applied to the those who can enforce CK perms once your character with those two being @AfroGxaiden and @Figenskar is roled associate+ we will not CK locals and will even allow locals of any age or background to roleplay with us, If they do not wish to take the path of a gang banger! We plan on aiming to make a fictional predominantly black street crew which will eventually this will evolve into a semi-organised street gang with black nationalistic roots taking some elements of real life criminal organisations into one big fictional idea. If you wish to be part of this concept feel free to join the discord so long you value quality roleplay, character development, along with character portrayal, along with having interest in roleplaying as a black teenager preferably 13-16 residing within Vespucci(If you wish to take the gang banging path of the faction) although token characters will be allowed it may need to be regulated at a low percentage of membership in the group. Overall the key things we are looking for is Quality roleplay, along with character development hence we won't tolerate trolls, or unserious roleplayers. However, if you're down to be part of this group feel free to join the discord and create a character and engage with the members hanging around the designated spots of the faction or even shoot me a pm about further questions. https://discord.gg/ceJNnWemFp

  15. The Hoover Criminals Gang The Hoover Criminal Gang originally coming from an African American street gang located on the West Side of South Los Santos, San Andreas. The name comes from a street called Hoover Street, between Vermont Ave and Figueroa St. The Hoovers got multiple sets within them streaching all the way from 52 up to 112. The Hoover Criminal Gangs originated in the 1960s and got known as Hoover Groovers. Groovers have been around long before the formation of the Crips. One of the leading members of Hoovers Groovers has been shot to death and most of people accused the 94 Westside Crips The Hoover Groovers and the West Side Crips held a meeting at the Saint Andrews Recreation Center. Both gangs eventually formed an alliance and blamed the Figueroa Boys for the death of their leader. Hoover Gangster Crips By the mid 1970s, due to their alliance with the West Side Crips, the Hoovers dropped the Groovers from their name and adopted the Crips (Hoover Crips). By 1979, when the feud between the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips and the Eight Tray Gangster Crips started, gangs started pleading alliance to either the Rollin 60s Crips or the Eight Trays. Gangs who aligned themselves with the Rollin 60s adopted the Neighborhood Crips, also known as the Deuces or Deuce Gang's (2x). Gangs who aligned themselves with the Eight Tray Gangster Crips adapted the ''Gangster Crips'', also known as the Trays or Tray Gang's (3x). The Hoovers fell under the Gangster Crips card, ''Hoover Gangster Crips.'' On August 1979, a reputable member and the founder of the East Side Crips was murdered in a drive-by shooting. Rumors of the shooters spread throughout the streets of Los Santos. The East Side Crips placed the blame and held the Hoover Crips responsible for the murder, sparking a bitter feud between the Hoover Crips and the East Side Crips. Hoover Criminal Gang By the 1980s, during the Crack epidemic in the South Central region of Los Santos, San Andreas, the Hoover Gangster Crips became one of the most notorious street gangs to participate in the drug world. Ricky ''Freeway'' Ross (drug-lord) was affiliated with the Hoover Crips. By the mid 1980s, the Hoovers were one of the most feared street gangs in South Central, LS. Their brutal reputation for gun violence made them one of the first suspects to be blamed for gang-related shootings. By the late 1980s, the Hoovers were engaged in bitter rivalries with several Crip gangs. From Crips to Criminals By the 1990s, the Hoovers renounced Crips and decided to change their name, by replacing Crips with Criminals. They claim ''ABK'' or ''EBK'' which stands for Anybody Killer or Everybody Killer. It was common to see ''BK'' (Blood Killer) aswell as ''CK'' (Crip Killer) and ''OK'' (Rollin 0's), spray painted on the walls within their territory. Present Day / The 83 Hoover Criminal Gang The West Side (W/S) 83 Hoover Criminal Gang (also referred to as the "8-Tray Hoover Criminal Gang") are a long standing Hoover set located in the western district of South Los Santos. Originating in the 1970s, this gang is a subset of the larger Hoover Criminals umbrella. Sometimes referred to as "The Rascalz" or "Tiny Rascalz", the 83 Hoover Criminal Gang is considered the largest and most active Hoover set. They have no known allies outside of the Hoover Criminals umbrella though they are friendly with the Shotgun Crips and 83 Gangster Crips. As a result of their enormous list of enemies, they continue to contribute to a majority of the gang violence in South Central Los Santos. The 83 Hoover Criminals are allies of all other Hoover sets and are cool with some Gangster Crip sets, such as the 83 Gangster Crips and the 51 Trouble Gangster Crips. Their main ally outside of the Hoover Criminals, were the Main Street Mafia Crips. However, in 2009, their alliance ended on bad terms at a house party thrown by the Main Street’s, who invited the Hoover Criminals. Allegedly, the Hoover Criminals and the Main Street Crips, got into a confutation, followed by gunfire.
  16. Askari 'MARLINk REDDBØY#1' Moore (Placeholder Image) Askari Moore is characterized by his profound desire to integrate himself into the narrative of his neighbourhood. Visibly he can be identified by his surprisingly short stature, standing at 5'5'' with double strand twists and a thin build. Audibly, you'll notice him from a mile away with his shrill voice, cracking whenever he gets too excited. Born into a family jammed up with gang affiliates, notably RonBrazy from Murder Park Families & OnSight from 74 Hoovers Criminals. Askari was guided into the gang life with ease, to the point some might say he is over-confident in his ability to control oneself in the ordinary stresses of the life. Despite this, he almost never takes himself seriously and is generally considered to be a non-factor. This doesn't stop him from yearning for the attention of the Murder Park Families big homies, going lengths only classified by crash dummy activities. His close family history is monotonous with a nuclear family facing similar pressures to most in the neighbourhood. Askari, deeply stimulated by the gang activity of his cousins and friends is pushing for his put on to Murder Park Families. Way before he expected anything to occur, Askari is met with a put-on as a result of tensions rising in South Central and his connection to RonBrazy, rather than the recognition of his devotion and stripes for the gang.

Financial pressures keep building up, his mother needs money for insulin shots to survive, and thugs keep picking on him because he is young and weak; DeMarcus has been forced to grow up fast. Not to mention puberty is beginning for him. Daily his morality is tested and slowly DeMarcus finds himself crossing every moral line, but a very recent conversation with a mechanic named Johnny has given him hope by suggesting he stick to an outlaws' moral code since that's the life sucking DeMarcus in. He'll do whatever it takes in order for him and his mother to survive.

𝕻𝖗𝖔𝖑𝖔𝖌𝖚𝖊 DeMarcus Tāufaʻāhau Davis Jr.’s story starts 3 Generations back . . . 1941, Tongan natives Kelekolio and Laaka Nukuʻalofa—husband and wife—legally immigrate from Nukuʻalofa, Tongatapu, Tonga to Idlewood, Los Santos, San Andreas, The United States of America—thanks to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ assist in the process. Kailao Nuku‘alofa was born on April 4th, 1943, at the Central Los Santos Medical Center; he was raised by two Mormon-convert Pacific Islander parents. Kailao grew up facing discrimination—socially and systemically—on the basis of his skin color in an era of high racial tensions, in spite of being a Pacific Islander and not of African American descent; racism pushed Kailao toward activism, inspiring him to pursue a degree in political science at the University of Los Santos, San Andreas (ULSA). October 15th, 1966, The Black Panther Party for self-defense (BPP) was founded by Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale in Oakland, San Fierro, San Andreas—the BPP was a revolutionary organization with an ideology of Black nationalism, socialism, and armed self-defense, specifically against police brutality. The BPP formed in the midst of the Black Power movement and in response to failures of the Civil Rights Movement, turning it toward militancy. 1967, Kailao joined the BPP at age 23 early in the organization’s lifespan when numbers were low. Kailao increasingly involved\himself in political activism avidly that year, particularly for Black rights. Kailao legally changed his name to “DeMarcus” to both Americanize himself more and to identify himself synonymously with the Black Power movement. May 2nd, 1967, 26 panthers led by Seale from Oakland traveled to the Sacramento State House to protest the Mulford Act—a bill prohibiting the closed or open carry of loaded firearms. This event rapidly spread awareness of the BPP. The BPP pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of disrupting a legislative session. Kailao/DeMarcus was among the 26 armed men charged, putting him on the Federals’ radar. Kailao/DeMarcus rose to prominence within the BPP overtime. Following a complex history of interactions, Kailao/DeMarcus—a Malcolm X follower—met, fell in love with, started dating, and eventually married fellow activist—devout Martin Luther King Jr. follower—Malika Davis, a muslim African American female. They adopted Malika’s surname as the family name since it was more American than Kailao’s/DeMarcus’s. Multiple street gangs formed and rose to power to combat intimidation from white supremacy gangs. 1980s–1990s, an event known as the “Crack Epidemic” where cocaine flooded major Urban Centers across The Nation transpired. Early-1980s, Kailao/DeMarcus and Malika Davis purchased a house on Grove Street, Davis. Kailao/DeMarcus and Malika continued activism years into the Crack Epidemic . . . Kailao’s/DeMarcus’s parents Kelekolio and Laaka passed away at ages 71 and 77 due to old age. Divers socioeconomic factors—the Crack Epidemic, high racial tensions, a rising hate crime rate—pressured violence in inner-City neighborhoods, consequently skyrocketing the crime rate. Anti-crime legislation passed through congress and red taping policies negatively affected African American communities, which Kailao/DeMarcus and Malika duly protested against. Multiple street gangs rose to Power out of competition over resources. Particularly, The Crips were founded in 1969 by Raymond Washington and Stanley Williams at Fremont and Washington High School and they led the East and West Side Crips respectively. Williams reflected in his 2004 memoir Blue Rage, Black Redemption: A Memoir The Crips “depicted a fighting alliance against street gangs—nothing more, nothing less.” 1972,\ The Bloods federation formed out of numerous gangs’ collective bitter rivalries with The Crips. The Bloods. Innumerable Crip and Blood sets established themselves all over Los Santos, San Andreas. Bloods were outnumbered by Crips 3–1. Davis slowly transformed into one of America’s most notorious and dangerous hoods. 1970s–1980s, The Tongan Crip Gang (TCG) formed in Idlewood, Los Santos, San Andreas. Early-July 2002, Malika was announced pregnant. On February 8th, 2002, Felecia Davis was born. Early-July 2003, Malika was announced pregnant. On January 13th, 2003, Malik Azikiwe Davis, named after his mother, middle-name derived from Nnamdi Benjamin Azikiwe’s last name (the “Father of Nigerian Nationalism,” a Nigerian statesman and political leader considered a driving force behind the Nation’s Independence who served as the first President of Nigeria from 1963–1966). July 13th, 1988, Kailao/DeMarcus was found dead riddled with lead in the middle of Grove Street. Some suspect a white supremacy gang or FBI/CIA assassinated him. Malika slipped into a severe depression; Malika quit activism and took to an unhealthy degree of comfort eating fast and sugary foods. As if things could not get worse, on October 19th 1987, Black Monday—a financial crisis—triggered a wave of deleveraging with significant macroeconomic consequences; by February, the market lost 60% of its value and Malika fell below the poverty line, becoming eligible for the food stamp program. Malika got addicted to PCP to cope. DeMarcus Tāufaʻāhau Davis Jr. was born on March 7th, 2010 at Central Los Santos Medical Center, bordered by Capital Boulevard, Crusade Road, Davis Avenue, and Innocence Boulevard within Los Santos, San Andreas. He was named after and in honor of his father. “Tāufaʻāhau”—DeMarcus Jr.'s middle-name—references a young Tongan warrior, strategist, and orator named Tāufaʻāhau who united Tonga into a kingdom in 1845. DeMarcus Davis Jr.’s last name is adopted from his widowed mother’s birth-name. DeMarcus Davis Jr. grew up in The Projects—the poverty-plunged Hellhole of The CIty of Davis—the Murder Capitol of Los Santos, trapped in a perpetual cycle of violence—flooded with narcotics and populated by gang-affiliated ballers and poser-bustas. DeMarcus Jr.’s father was raised Mormon and converted Malika to religion, so DeMarcus Jr. was born, raised, and still is a devout Mormon; while devout, DeMarcus Jr. is a “Mormon” by name only practically, besides how it affects his budding moral compass and his occasional prayers. In 2016, DeMarcus Davis Jr’s older brother Malik began banging with the TCG, around when DeMarcus was merely age 6. Malik earned the alias “Cane,” after proving to be a demon-child. Malik became the black sheep of the Davis family from a young age. However, in 2020 Cane ditched the gang after disagreement over the TCG’s future and direction with the O.G.s. Malik moved to New York City, New York with ambitions of becoming an East-side player. 2017, Cane joined the Murderous Mad Dogs Blood-affiliated street gang set based in New York, Brooklyn. DeMarcus Jr. loathed Malik for his betrayal of his hood and turning his back on his own family. To DeMarcus Jr., Malik is dead.

  18. CASE FILE: #854-12-2154 CASE NUMBER: #A412 Kapo Nakao █ ██████ ██████ ████████, ██ █████p Kapo Nakao also known as "Capo" or "Speed" (was born December 16th, 1999, Davis, Los Santos, San Andreas) is a well known gang member that was involved in a various criminal activities in the past few years such as kidnapping, armed robbery, vandalism, disturbance of public order and failure to comply with the instructions of police officers. Biography: He's considered to be a "light-skinned Malay Mongoloid" or "light skinned Austronesian Malay". His biological father is a Caucasian (L.S. native), whilst his mother is originally from Polynesia, Tonga region. His birth parents are named Ailine Nakao and Joshua Goldsmith. His parents divorced while Kapo was a newborn. Kapo never saw his father. After divorce Ailine Nakao started to consume a lot of alcohol and light drugs. Kapo inherited his mother surname since his mother changed it while he was a kid. All of his childhood Kapo saw various men walk in and walk out of his home. Ailine Nakao was mostly focusing herself of finding a new husband and fixing her life issues while Kapo was literally living on his own at that time. Kapo never agreed with any of the new "dad's" that his mom was trying to propose for him. In Kapo's early teens everything got even worse. His mom, Ailine Nakao, managed to find out a new "potential husband" who introduced her to new drugs like crystal meth. In the meantime she started to consume some harder drugs. She wasn't taking care of Kapo anymore. Kapo, naturally, got in touch with the local guys from the neighborhood who showed him a few ways how to easily earn money on "his own". He realized that he can get a lot of "easy" cash on his own and that he can "live on his own". Influenced by various local gang members and "wannabe" gangsters he managed to start working for local gangs and build his early career and reputation all around South Central area. Kapo Nakao never seen a good example of a normal family and proper relationships. Due to a fact he barely imagines what a normal "family life means" itself. He was growing with a heavy drug addict on the side and with a bunch of random men who were changing quite a lot in his eyes. Many of those men were using a strong violence against him or his mom. Because of that he never managed to develop a proper understanding about feelings and love to other people. He doesn't really know what it means to love and have a family. From his point of view his family is the gang since the local gang members managed to grow him since he was a child. Since Kapo childhood, the guy was strongly influenced by a well known local gangster Dwayne "Wizz" Thompson who was like a father to him. Kapo Nakao never was a good student. He never really cared about the school. He was always at the lower mid tier since he was able to do whenever he wants with his life and nobody was making any kind of guidelines to him. Later on he started to run away from school and skip lessons on daily basis. Instead of that he was spending his time with his friends while selling drugs or doing graffiti's on the streets. At his youngster age he got kind of a strong addiction to video games so instead of going to school he was playing various video games in front of his TV at home. One of the biggest problems that Kapo is fighting constantly - his drug addictions. He never managed to get rid of it completely. Influenced by a bunch of locals drug addicts and constant being around the drugs made him a passive addict. He is starting to use them from time to time on a heavy basis. He is closely tied with "Tongan Crip Gang" better known as "TCG". Kapo Nakao mostly operates in southern district, Davis. SPECIAL ABILITIES AND SKILLS: Trapstar Kapo Nakao focuses on the sale of illegal narcotics. The guy knows very well where to get the drugs in wholesale for a good price and how to distribute them all around the streets. All Talk Kapo Nakao has a very loud mouth. This guy is talking the talk, and may or may not be able to walk the walk. He wants to be seen and wanna talk his shit to any and everybody. 9 to 5 Kapo Nakao has a legal job that makes some money (or covers the illegal cash flow). He owns a local "Bad Day Goods" pawn shop in Strawberry street, Davis. OG Kapo Nakao has a very strong reputation and a lot of respect on the streets. While not being a very old or a "long-time" member of the gang, he managed to earn a lot of respect with his works. It managed to earn him this title in the meantime. At the moment he is living a more reserved lifestyle after a life of constant gang-banging and crime. PERSONAL INFORMATION: TITLE: MR.

  20. SSP E/S Segundo Samoan Piru is a fictional, predominantly Samoan and Polynesian street gang, located in Segundo Village, East Davis. With the influx of Samoan American immigrants during 1962, Polynesian youth gangs and cliques did not take long to form. These youth gangs made up of local Samoan Americans and other Polynesians occurred as a result of the racial division and targeting from law enforcement entities that were all so common for the poverty stricken neighborhoods at the time. Starting as a clique of local kids, "Little Uso's" was formed, it was only after the murder of respected member of the community and "Little Uso's" clique Aleki "Uso Lekki" Tuigamala that the Segundo Village youth decided to form SSP, E/S Segundo Samoan Piru. The group decided to take on the Piru name due to their close relations with Neighborhood Piru, located nearby on the East Side of Roy Lowenstein Boulevard. The street gang indulged in a variety of criminal activities, ranging from vandalism to violent home invasions. With the Segundo Samoan Piru's being primarily Samoan, they are often used by the API car in TTCF as a vessel for street politics, and a way for them to branch out into the outside world. Due to Polynesian's overwhelming sense of unity and familial connections, it is not uncommon to mistake a Samoan Piru member for a civillian, on account of their typically friendly nature, only changing upon provocation or intoxication. The Segundo Samoan Piru's, despite being extremely Americanized are still in-touch with their Polynesian heritage and underlying culture, heavily Christian and it is not uncommon for some members to speak Samoan, being taught by their parents and community members. Due to the gangs Piru affiliation, the Philadelphia Phillies are used as the main identification among the Segundo Samoan Piru's. It is extremely common to see members sporting the red 'P' on baseball caps, shirts and accessories. The Segundo Samoan Piru's are represented by a maroon flag, also typical of Piru sets. SPP Segundo Samoan Piru's allies include Neighborhood Piru, Jurassic Park Gangster Brims, and Avenue Piru Gang. As with any Samoan Piru street gang, Segundo Samoan Piru rivals include the Sons of Samoa Gangster Crip street gang and Tongan Crip Gang. OOC INFORMATION E/S Segundo Samoan Piru is a fictional street gang, loosely based on the W/S Carson Piru, a Samoan Piru street gang. We are aiming to portray realistic Samoan American gang-bangers and a accurate portrayal of a fictional Los Angeles street gang. Upon joining, it is expected of members to be well informed of LA gang politics, as well as a good understanding of the W/S Carson Piru street gang and Polynesian culture.

  21. E/S Clover Gang was originally formed by a group of Sureno's that had formed a small reputation within the street of Brouge Avenue, after both Front Street Watts Crips and the 103 Hard Time Hustler Crips were totally wiped from the local region, upon their dissipation one of the remaining jumped in set members had decided to reform the set on Brouge Avenue with the help of the local community, the rifa formed together through their life experiences and ultimately ended out forming as a gang of Sureno youths. East Side Pueblo Bishop Bloods are a predominately African-American street gang based in the Roy Lowstein region, Davis in a community known as the Low Bottoms. They have been active in that area since the early 1970s before the Blood identity was even forged. Prior to Black gang resurgence during the very early 1970s, there was a gang in the area called Pueblo Players that was active since the 1950s. Upon reaching out to one another, and establishing a deep bond, both the E/S Clover Gang and the East Side Pueblo Bishop Bloods had decided to effectively merge both of their sets together, the Pueblo Bishop Bloods control Roy Lowstein Boulevard whilst Eastside Clover Gang hold control over Brouge Avenue, both sets are currently defunct and are ultimately working together side by side flying green and red rags with one another. -- OOC Information -- This faction will follow the development of both the E/S Clover Gang & the East Side Pueblo Bishop Bloods, both sets currently operate on both Roy Lowstein Boulevard & Brouge Avenue, for anyone interested in learning more about the faction, you can find out more on our official discord https://discord.gg/4Scz2xTgKZ
