  1. ((OOC INFORMATION)) The goal of this faction is to portray a realistic criminal operation based out of North Vinewood with the sole objective of making money. The crew consists of a group of ex-criminals with decades of experience between them, as well as mid-level criminals that have moved away from more strict hierarchical syndicates, street gangs, and other foreign organized crime organizations––all of which have banded together to pool resources, experience, and knowledge, in order to collaborate and make money. While this crew may have Characters that have previously been members of LCN groups, it is not necessarily an LCN faction and it will not strictly abide by LCN rules or customs. All races and ethnicities are welcome to join, pending that they’re a good fit for the goals and objectives of the group. We refuse to let “character development” and “roleplay quality” simply be buzzwords in our faction. Instead, they will be the core principals in which we operate and recruit. We will not hesitate to remove people for poor quality portrayal, or badly researched, stereotypical caricatures. We would rather have ten-guys who can provide a quality experience than forty who we constantly have to babysit out of fear that they’ll embarrass us or undermine our faction’s OOC purpose. Feel free to message @Rickaroni or @NickyW with any questions.
  2. The Mongols Motorcycle club is a “one-percenter” motorcycle gang and alleged organized crime syndicate. The club was originally formed in Montebello, California by hispanic Vietnam-war veterans who were said to be refused entry into the Hells Angels due to their ethnicity. The Mongols Motorcycle Club is currently headquartered by their “mother chapter” in Southern California where their main presence is felt, and the club is still in active war with their notorious rivals, the Hells Angels. The club has chapters in fifteen states, as well as international charters in Mexico, Australia, Canada, Russia, Germany, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Switzerland and New Zealand. The Mongols started much like most clubs in the late sixties. A rowdy bunch of misfits, closely bonded by friendship, family, and brotherhood who enjoyed riding motorcycles, partying hard, and had a strong distaste for the views and ideologies of mainstream society. It didn’t stay that way for long. They eventually began pushing guns and narcotics, making a profit from anything they could, all while making their presence known. The Mongols are known for a broad spectrum of crime ranging from petty theft, to arms and narcotics trafficking, prostitution, robbery, and even murder. In the first five years after 1969, the club grew from the backstreets of East Los Angeles to establishing chapters in San Diego, Bakersfield, Long Beach, and also the San Gabriel and San Fernando Valleys (SGV/SFV). The club’s name is a tribute to the Mongol army of the legendary Genghis Khan, and their logo is a representation of Genghis, the founder of the empire, riding a motorcycle. The Mongols colors are black and white. The Mongols M.C. developed an immediate strong hold in the Southern California area. At the time and even now there were really no other 1%er clubs co-existing in these areas. During the early 1970’s the Mongols M.C. launched this new American biker movement into the West Coast area. This was a lifestyle, a culture, and a way of life for the brothers riding around on their chopped Harley Davidson motorcycles on the streets of East Los Angeles showing power and solidarity. The majority of new member were ex Vietnam veterans returning from the recent war. The brothers were accustomed to a strict disciplined, regimented program that was about honor, loyalty, respect, and camaraderie. This made them a force to be reckoned with. The Mongols name derived from the Mongol Empire that was led by Genghis Khan. The Mongols divided and conquered big countries throughout Eastern Europe in the early 1200’s. They were known to be highly disciplined, superbly coordinated and brilliant in tactics. The Mongols were fearless warriors on horseback. Yet small in numbers with a lot of heart they dominated and decimated their enemies; Hence the Mongols name that we now wear proudly on our backs, but the difference now is we ride iron horses. At the end of the day it’s about “Quality not Quantity!” - Lil' Dave (National President) It is our aim to create a realistic and enjoyable outlaw 1%er Motorcycle Club role-play environment, more specifically, a portrayal of the Mongols MC's Compton, East Los Angeles, Hollywood, and San Gabriel Valley Chapters. We strive to uphold our strict image of a primarily Hispanic motorcycle club and live up to the colloquial nickname of "cholos on wheels". Standing true to the stories of real life Mongols members and the club itself, many members here role-play as ex gangbangers from different Sureño sets, although this is not mandatory as Caucasian members are also welcomed, encouraged & accepted. Mongols MC chapters operate semi-independently of each other, so it's important to think about your character's portrayal and demographic when choosing a chapter to interact with. We recommend thinking about the local demographic of the area, the style of roleplay you'd like to be engaged in, and your character's future progression and growth. These things are all important to consider when starting out. You can find Mongols MC chapters in the following locations: DAVIS EAST L.S. VINEWOOD SAN CHIANSKI VALLEY Any questions, concerns, or other queries can be directed to @Psychedelic, or @CULTure. MONGOLS MC and the Mongols logo (R) are trademarks owned by the Mongols Nation Motorcycle Club, and full credit and respect is given to the club. Scenes, depictions, edited photographs and opinions associated with this faction on GTA:World are not necessarily the opinions of the real-life Mongols Nation Motorcycle Club.

  5. Varrio Villains, also known as Vinewood Villains 13 is a primarily Mexican-American street gang on San Vitus Boulevard. Vinewood Villains 13 originally started out as a tagging crew back in 1996, and consist of several cliques which include, San Vitus Lokos, Troubled Boyz, and Violent Lokos. Varrio Villains consist of many active members and is considered one of the largest Hispanic sets in Vinewood. As many years gone by, Vinewood Villains then grew into a Hispanic set and quickly gained reputation for being reckless in Vinewood and all around Los Santos. They participated in many illegal activities and began working with powerful organizations which include The Mexican Mafia. Varrio Villains are allies of The Mexican Mafia and fall under the Sureno 13 brand. They are rivals with 18th Street and Barrio Mojados and are actively beefing with small Crip sets in the Vinewood Area. They also claim Piru Killer, and Crip Killer due to their active feud with African-American gangs. Vinewood Villains13 are also known as Cop Killers due to their rivalry with the Los Santos Police Department, and Los Santos Sheriffs Department. Vinewood Villains also feud with other street gangs that aren't near Vinewood. In the late 1990's when the Vinewood Villains set began to affiliate themselves with the Mexican Mafia where they adopted the name Vinewood Villains 13 many other sets under the Sureno 13 brand attempted to beef with Varrio Villains which ended up in the death of Angel Gamboa, a member of Vinewood Villains 13.

  8. The Wicked Brown Suspects 13 also known by the acronym WBSX3 is a street gang composed of predominantly Hispanic-American and Salvadorian-American affiliates. WBSX3 is a Los Santos based street gang that operates in the Northern area of Los Santos, specifically, Clinton Avenue and has been since its creation during the early 1990s. The faction’s birthing traces back all the way to early 1992 in a tagging crew called "Brown Pride Boys". The crew was first founded in the area to protect newer fleets of Hispanic-Immigrants from pretty much everything in Los Santos, such as poverty, discrimination, and limited opportunities for jobs and living situations. After fleeing from Mexico and El Salvador to Los Santos, many of them, without having any family over in the area, nor any idea on where to go results in them being lost, having to stay in dangerous areas which also includes section-8 housing and homeless shelters. After about ten-years is when the WBSX3 gang begin to have problems with other existing street gangs located in Los Santos for example gangs such as, 83 Gangster Crip, Eighteenth Street and even Tug Town Bloods. Their most notable issues though, is between WBSX3 and most African-American Gangs. The feud between the gangs, started all the way in the late 1990’s, over petty tagging disputes and arguments in the gang turfs. During the late 1990's they began to affiliate themselves with the Mexican Mafia where they would adopt the name, Wicked Brown Suspects 13 / WBSX3. During this transitioning period is where they picked up heat with the local Eighteenth Street gang over turf control and product being moved in the area. Both gangs felt as if their turfs were being impeded on which led to a deadly shooting of a Eighteenth Street gang member. After this, arrests were made which conducted over eight affiliated WBSX3 members, causing the decline in their gang activity. Although the gang has a affiliation the Mexican Mafia. The gang has beefed other Sureño factions such as Eighteenth Street, Clanton 14, and White Fence 13. Although they had beefs with Sureño gangs, they would have more focus on their African-American rivals. They mainly beefed the Crip Card and the Blood Card, claiming Bk and Ck in their tags and social media. This gang would believe heavily in their gang heritage, so members would be seen walking around in brown Cortes shoes and black flags hanged around their neck to claim the EBK status they had. The beefs between WBSX3, Crip, and Blood gangs in Los Santos still reigns heavily to this day, with many violent encounters happening daily in North Vinewood.
  9. "La Vida Loca" by Carlos "Wiro" Ruiz and many others, 1992. The Barrios Origins The origins of the 18th street gang can be traced back to Los Santos, San Andreas, during the early 1960s in the Downtown district. The gang was originally made up of immigrants from different Latino countries, which was unusual for that time period. Bigger neighborhoods during that time would usually discriminate against other ethnic groups, choosing only to recruit and admit Mexicans into their ranks. As the small gang of 18th streeters slowly grew they gained the attention of a much bigger gang, Clanton 14. Members of the 18th street gang were actually interested in joining Clanton and making their own clique. However before they were allowed to join the Clanton gang made a demand, the 18th street gang had to get rid of all their non-Mexican members. This decree did not sit well with 18th street membership. The smaller gang rebelled against C14s demands and went to war against them. Establishing themselves as their own neighborhood The Rise of 18th Street Eighteenth Street has become one of the most significant gangs within Los Santos and has spread to numerous locations. Such growth in membership and geographical coverage can be attributed to 18th Street’s open ethnic enrollment of members outside the Latino community, this broadened the appeal for youth to join the gang. The spread of 18th street across Los Santos can be linked to US immigration policies in the 1980s. The mass immigration of people fleeing from civil war in South American led to the gangs recruitment pool increasing in size. These immigrants flocked to the 18th street gang due to the lax recruitment guidelines it had compared to other Hispanic gangs that did not want them,. The gang was one of the few that allowed members of all races and ethnic backgrounds to join. The recruitment of these war refuges led to a sudden increase in the violence committed by the gang. The wave of new recruits were more prone to violence due to the militarized lifestyles they lived in their home countries. These newly gained violent tendencies led to the 18th street gang being able to absorb many smaller gangs and take control of their turf. However, this new found approach to gang banging led to the gang gaining a long list of enemies. Barrio Eighteenth Street vs Mara Salvatrucha One of 18th streets life long enemies is the equally large and infamous Mara Salvatrucha 13. The feud between these two gangs has claimed the lives of hundreds of members from both sides, as well as the lives of many innocent civilians. There are many different stories as to why the war between the two gangs started, many of them becoming somewhat folktales. One story that seems to be the most likely is that one night during a party, members of both gangs got into a dispute over a girl who was seen dancing with a MS13 member after recently breaking up with a reputable 18th street member. The two groups were fighting when shots were fired and a 18th street member was left dead. The two gangs have been involved in a bloody war ever since. The feud has went beyond Los Santos borders as both gangs expanded outside of America, the fighting has now reached new levels in South America. Barrio Eighteenth Street vs The Bloods Up until the early 90s the eighteenth street gang had actually maintained peaceful relations with most black gangs. This allowed them to expand their turf within black neighborhoods. In 1993 the 18th street gang attempted to move into the "Jungles", a black community residing in a maze of apartment buildings in the Chamberlain Hills neighborhood. This led to a dispute between them and the "Black P. Stone" gang over clientele and drug turf in the jungles. The dispute escalated to the point where members of BPS decided to shoot and kill a leader of the Rancho Park clique over the dispute. This led to a series of brazen retaliation shootings by the 18th street gang, members of the gang were shooting at anything black in the Jungles. Due to the jungles being considered a safe haven for bloods, many other blood gangs were dragged into the war on account of their members getting shot by 18th street after being mistake as BPS members. 18th streets main blood adversaries ended up being the Black P Stones, The Rolling Twenty Bloods, and the Westside Brims. 18th street in Vinewood The 18th street gangs presence in Vinewood dates back to the early eighties. Vinewood at the time was experiencing an unprecedented flood of immigrants, mainly from South America. These immigrants quickly formed "stoner" gangs, these stoner gangs differed from the traditional cholo gang. They were into heavy metal, wore long hair, and dropped acid. The differences in culture lead to a lot of stoner and cholo gangs beefing. 18th street saw this as a opportunity and recruited the young stoner gangs. With the backing of 18th street, these stoner gangs carved out territory for themselves in the Vinewood area, establishing a 18th street presence in the region. The Vinewood barrio dubbed itself "Vinewood Gangsters" as a way to differentiate itself from other 18st barrios, this particular 18st chapter has two cliques within itself. The two established cliques in Vinewood are the Laguna Winos (LWS) and Clinton Lil Cycos(CLCS). These two cliques operate together very closely, almost as one singular gang. The Laguna Winos clique is mainly found in the central part of Vinewood just north of Spanish Avenue, they claim the apartment buildings on the corner of Laguna Place & Spanish Ave as their strong hold. The Laguna Winos clique earned it's named in the early 80s, the early members of the clique were known as "winos" who'd always be seen drinking in and around the Laguna Place apartment buildings that they call home. The LWS clique is a more aggressive clique that focuses on gang warfare. The clique is known as 18th streets main hitters in the Vinewood area, earning their reputation for participation in gangland murders on MS13, C14, White Fence and many other Vinewood gangs. This particular clique of 18th street is known to travel to neighborhoods controlled by other cliques to participate in their wars. Members of the LWS clique can be found in court documents for being involved in murders of Black P Stones, Rollin 20 Bloods, and other members of distant gangs that feud with 18th street. The Clinton Lil Cycos can be found just further north, past the famous Vinewood Boulevard and on Clinton Avenue. CLCS has a history of being one of 18th streets most lucrative cliques, they were apart of a massive open air drug market operation on Clinton Avenue in the late 90s that earned them multiple federal indictments as well as millions of dollars in yearly revenue. This particular of the of 18th street has a history of having close ties to the Mexican Mafia. At their height the clique received a cut for every rock of cocaine, gram of heroin, and baggie of weed sold in their turf. Vinewood drug dealers would pay a tax or rent for permission to operate in the streets of Vinewood. Federal prosecutors say that shot caller Juan Romero or "Termite" put members of the clique on shifts so that drugs could be sold twenty four hours a day. The CLCS has since fallen out of glory with multiple indictments disrupting their operation. Today, the clique still operates a drug operation but now on a much smaller scale.

  13. One-Nine-Owe Before the 190 East Coast Neighborhood Blocc Crips turned Neighborhood/East Coast Crips, they went by the Del Amo Crips. The 190 East Coast Crips originally went by Del Amo Crips because they stayed on the southern part of Del Amo Blvd. Around this time, there were a few other Crip gangs residing in the area, such as: the Leadership Crips; the Westside Blocc Crips; and the Eastside Block Players, who later merged with the del Amo Crips to form the Del Amo Blocc Crips. The Del Amo Blocc Crips became the 190 East Coast Crips by the early 1980s. Big Kelsey—one of the founders of the Del Amo Crips—is currently serving hard time in prison. What was originally known as one of the nicest neighborhoods turned into the most dangerous areas in Vinewood Hills. The 190 East Coast Blocc Crips gang was formed in a middle-class neighborhood on the east side of Vinewood Hills, San Andreas. The 190 East Coast Blocc Crips are known as one of the most hated gangs in Hawick District. The 190 East Coast Blocc Crips territory stretches all the way from Del Amo Blvd to Wilmington Ave, between Wilmington Ave and University Ave, Over the years the 190, East Coast Blocc Crips have expanded and grown more prominent, gaining a lot of popularity in Vinewood for their infamous crimes, although the 190 East Coast Blocc Crips stay in the Hawick District, they have picked up a lot of beef all over the East and West side of LS. The 190 East Coast Neighborhood Blocc Crips consist of two different ruthless cliques known as the Young Bastards and Del Amo Blocc. “Bastard Crip Pass the Clip” Bruce Millsap, who is also known as "Loco" formed a four-man group with a group of friends who were called the "Superpredators". This group was known as one of the most notorious small crews within the 190 East Coast Crips. The group consisted of Millsap's closest friends, Loot, Colston, and Brown. Together, they terrorized the city, catching back-to-back murders. They were known as one of the most ruthless groups just because of how many people they killed in a short period of time. The "Superpredators" crew, which formed within the 190 East Coast Crips, was portrayed as a robbery and killer crew. On November 3rd, 1995, around 12 pm, Lamont, who was a money transporter in Los Santos, was picking up money from the Walmart near Davis. When he was shot multiple times by the small crew, the "Superpredators", as they tried to get to the armored truck, Lamont’s associate shot back at the crew of the young, ruthless 190 East Coast Crips when they decided to run off after being shot at by Lamont’s associate, and Lamont Smith ended up dying shortly after the situation. Two weeks later, a group of Denver Lane Bloods were outside near a driveway, talking with each other shortly after Bruce and a group of East Coast Crip members rolled up on the side of the Denver Lane Bloods and opened fire on the group, shooting and killing "Peanut," who was from the Damu Ridas; it was stated that he was shot over 17 times in his back. In 1996, Bruce murdered an eyewitness by the name of Manuel, who was acting as a witness against him. Manuel was supposed to open up in court and talk about how Bruce and the group of East Coast Crips robbed an electronics store for a pile of electronics, but he ended up being shot shortly after Bruce found out about Manuel and tried to testify against him and his crew. Manuel was brutally shot and killed, and he was left for dead after being shot several times by Bruce and his crew. Bruce allegedly stole over "50,000 dollars," so Bruce had to think quickly. After he knew that Manuel was trying to take a stand against him, he had to go kill the eyewitness. The infamous "Superpredators" crew kept doing armored, truck-type, and electronic store robberies. The LSSD named the "Superpredators," run by Bruce, one of the most notorious street crews coming up from Hawick District, as they were believed to have committed well over 20 murders throughout Southern California. Bruce was sentenced to eight death sentences, along with Loot getting one. Richard Colston ended up ratting on the group for the last one, Amayo Brown, who hung and killed himself in his jail cell as he was awaiting trial. The group was overall known as ruthless and one of the grimiest crews in the Hills of Los Santos. New Generation Run Down The 190 East Coast Crips are an outstanding and infamous predominantly African American gang coming from a middle-class area in the Hawick District, Vinewood Hills. The younger generation of the 190 East Coast Crips is now known for the recent beef they have picked up with the South Side Rancho Crips. Although the 190 East Coast Crips are in several different wars as of right now, they have a more positive side to their gang, which includes them making music labels such as 9ilionaire productions, Blue Stripe Association, and a few other labels and crews coming from out of the Del Amo area. Most of the rappers under these labels are associated with the 190 East Coast Crips, considering that they are run or managed by 190 East Coast Crips members. Some of the famous or hood famous rappers coming from out of these rapper labels are Nb#3, MousEC, RONDOE, Numba5, Q-Baller, Almighty Zimmy, and many other upcoming rappers from the 190 East Coast Blocc crips. The newer generation seems to claim "YTB," which is another abbreviation for the Young Bastards and stands for Yellow Tape Bastards. Del Amo Blocc Crips - The Del Amo Blocc Crips, coming from outside of the 190 East Coast Crips, are most likely the oldest clique within the 190 East Coast Blocc Crips. There are older members within the Del Amo Blocc Crips who only claim Del Amo Blocc Crips, as the older generation separates themselves from the East Coast Crips Cars, yet there are only some who only claim Del Amo Crips by themselves. For the younger generation, they are well and active and are alongside one of the most known and notorious cliques coming out of the 190-East Coast Crips with the Young Bastards. This clique is mostly known for the way they maneuver and make money. Young Bastard Crips - The Young Bastard Crips are a well-established and active clique coming from out of the 190 East Coast Crips, which is one of the oldest cliques alongside the Del Amo Blocc Crips. The Young Bastards basically operate the same as the Del Amo Crips, except this group is known to be grimier and is one of the main reasons the 190 East Coast Crips have beef with a lot of street gangs surrounding the area. The newer generation of the Young Bastard Crips is well and active; they and the Del Amo Blocc Crips have caused conflict between them and the South Side Compton Crips, as both of them diss each other on Instagram. This clique is known for its savagery and ruthlessness. The Young Bastard Crips have had a lot of infamous members coming from the clique, and they are known to be moneymakers as well. “Beef With The Bloecc Leave Em Chalk.” The 190 East Coast Blocc Crips have beef with a lot of different gangs all around Vinewood, San Andreas to Rancho, and even farther down to LS. The 190 East Coast Blocc Crips beef with the Chamberlain West Side Piru, Centerview Piru, Cabbage Patch Piru, South Side Rancho Crip, Hoover’s, Stevenson Village Crips, Carson 13, Swans, Inglewood Family Bloods, Black P Stones, Avenue Piru Gang, Denver Lane Bloods, and all Rancho Pirus. They also pick up beef all over the East and West sides of South Los Santos, San Andreas, since they fall under the Neighborhood Crips and they also pick up a lot of beef on the East Side due to them being East Coast Crips. Although they have many enemies, they still have allies such as all Neighborhood Crips, all East Coast Crips, 4 Pacc Crips, the Rollin’ 30 Crips, and last but not least, most of the Crips falling under the 2x umbrella.

  16. John "Tuna" Capra is a late thirties LS based mobster, primarily serving as a made man/soldier in The Conti Crime Family. It is rumored Capra arrived in Los Santos with ambitions to continue his semi-successful sales career. However, his lust for money seems to have taken a turn for the worse after introduction to Gerald Marchetti, at the time, a leading solider in The Conti Crime Family. The introduction seems to have occurred due to Capra's ownership of Zampa's Quality Meats & Deli, once owned by long-term associate of The Los Santos Crime Family, Paul "The Butcher" Zampa. It is said that Capra was hosting an underground card game alongside Nicholas Trisano where he first came on Marchetti's radar and subsequently put on record with the mafia. Since taking the role of manager in famous, fine dining restaurant Giovanni's Trattoria, it is believed Capra answered to long-term consigliere Joseph Campagna. However, his brief stint with Campagna was short lived as he left to Europe for unknown reasons. Capra returned to Marchetti and helped create the foundations of the Clinton Avenue Crew as the crew's ringleader alongside long term partner Nicholas Trisano. In late-April Capra used his accumulated financial wealth from his numerous rackets to invest in a rundown warehouse building in Clinton Avenue, Vinewood. This new business venture has led to Capra being the sole founder of The Lucky Fish casino, supposedly named by Conti underboss Dominic Altomare after Capra's nickname "Tuna". As well as Zampa's Quality Meats & Deli, it is believed to be the home of Capra's operations which span from extortion, bookmaking, drug trafficking and loansharking. During Capra's time as an associate in the Clinton Avenue Crew, led by newly promoted captain Gerald Marchetti, he was noticed by leaders of the Conti Crime Family after pulling off the biggest heist in the borgata's history. In early May, Capra and Trisano walked away from Bad Day Goods, a pawn shop used as a front for arms trafficking, with a $671,000.00 take. It was dubbed by criminal circles as the "Bad Days Haul." Yoska Makula, the owner of Bad Days Goods, disappeared and in typical mob fashion his body was never found. Shortly after, Marchetti vouched for Capra's membership into the borgata. Capra received his button and was inducted into the America Mafia at the prime age of 39. After the brutal daylight murder of Marco Caruso at the hands of the young Melrose Crew, chaos ensued in the Conti family. Campagna, once Capra's mentor and leader demanded compensation for the death of Caruso, who was falsely on record with the consiglierie. The amounted totaled to $200,000.00. He believed the duo were at fault as the Melrose Crew answered to the pair. Although against Cosa Nostra principles, Conti sanctioned the request at an upstairs meeting inside Clinton Avenue's Dirty Duke. During the sit-down, Capra was able to negotiate the fee down to a measly $60,000.00 claiming that Caruso's murderers in fact answered to Conti solider, Henry D'Amico. Nonetheless, Capra and Trisano out of respect to mafia traditions, asked for the stubborn boss to change his verdict. Conti gifted Capra the compensation under the false pretext that the situation was put to bed. However, on the eve of the 17th of July Clinton crew associate, James Donnelli, requested Capra to leave the Lucky Fish casino which was housing a high stakes poker game at the time. Trisano followed, both under the ruse that Donnelli had information regarding the upcoming indictments via his corrupt police official. Trisano and Capra were set up and fatally shot, both their bodies were never found. The Clinton Avenue crew spiraled out of control, those who had once claimed their loyalty to captain Gerald Marchetti had shown their true colors after associate Benjamin Nicci and lower level crew members kidnapped and shot Marchetti loyalists in an act of vengeance. The San Andreas Bureau of Investigation luckily brought a stop to the potential war, arresting key figures such as Lawrence Zampa and Joseph Agresta, one of who had been conspiring to murder Marchetti. Clinton Avenue was in shambles with at least twenty associates either fleeing after the murders of Capra and Trisano or switching allegiances to the government. Luckily for the Conti administration, aware of the looming federal threat, the forever self interested John Tuna Capra had already asked his lawyer, Tito Mendez, to draft a leniency deal in return for his cooperation. But as the age old saying goes: dead men cannot speak. ((John Capra has been my character for the last few months. I've wanted to create a character topic for a while but feared it was too late. Though, after consideration have decided to go for it. I'll update regularly with screenshots and upload important ones below that were integral to John's character development. The character story will host recycled LCN based screens from The Conti Crime Family faction thread and showcase screenshots that are either lore relevant or show off John's character. ))

  18. THREAD WILL FOLLOW A GROUP OF IRISH-AMERICAN & OTHER ETHNIC CRIMINALS AS WE DEVELOP FROM A LOOSELY STRINGED CREW, INTO A ORGANIZED CRIME GROUP UNDER THE CARDONA NETWORK. The Irish in San Andreas in 2005, when it became clear that the Ronald Reagan Pub in Ballyporeen, Tipperary was no longer a viable novelty to locals or tourists, Irish-American businessman and Republican booster Frederick Ryan Jr. facilitated the bar’s relocation to Simi Valley, San Andreas, also the site of Reagan’s presidential library. This anecdote is humorous and poignant, and – for Irish critics of Reagan – maybe even a bit satisfying. But it also captures several central themes concerning the Irish experience in San Andreas. President Reagan’s great-grandfather Michael was born in Ballyporeen, and moved to London around the time of the Famine. The Reagans – like so many Irish San Andreans – lived elsewhere in the U.S. before settling in San Andreas. Reagan’s father, John, was a practicing Catholic, who converted after marrying a Protestant. The Rise to Prominence It was just before and during the early years of John Reagan’s life – the 1860s, 1870s and 1880s – that the Irish rose to prominence in San Andreas. During this era, benevolent and fraternal groups such as the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Hibernian Society, and the Sons of the Emerald Isle were formed. Over a decade before New York or Boston elected an Irish mayor, San Fierro elected Frank McCoppin, born in Longford, in 1867. But McCoppin’s election as mayor of San Andreas’s largest city was just the latest in a string of electoral wins for Irish candidates. Seven years earlier, Roscommon native John G. Downey became the state’s governor. Galway native John Conness was elected a U.S. Senator in 1862 while Westmeath native Eugene Casserly won election to the same body in 1868. Also during the 1860s, two Irishmen who would have a huge impact on the state’s future politics arrived: Boss Chris Buckley came to the region at the age of 17 with his immigrant parents in 1862, while perennial reformer James D. Phelan (also the son of immigrants) was born in San Fierro in 1861. Ronald Reagan’s father, of course, would not achieve quite the same level of fame. But his son, born in 1911, joined a trail of Irish-American talent that flowed into Vinewood. Reagan’s second career, as a politician, saw him become the world’s most powerful leader. Ballyporeen, perhaps, could not sustain the Reagan Pub, but San Andreas certainly could. The Most Irish Americans Because it is home to the All-American dream factory – Vinewood – as well as the sprawling polyglot metropolis of Los Santos, San Andreas is rarely mentioned as an Irish state on par with the likes of New York or Massachusetts. But according to the 1990 census, San Andreas actually had the largest number of Irish-Americans, with nearly two million residents identifying themselves as Irish. Movies such as True Confessions (based on John Gregory Dunne’s novel) and L.S. Confidential have touched upon Irish-American characters navigating the underbelly of San Andreas urban life in the 1940s and 1950s. But the vast Irish contribution to San Andreas stretches back to the days of Spanish colonization and the Gold Rush of 1849. By the early 20th century, Jimmy Cagney, John Wayne and Grace Kelly were members of Vinewood’s Irish royalty, while politicians such as Ronald Reagan and Los Santos mayor Richard Riordan epitomized the endurance of Irish-American political influence. To this day, new Irish traditions continue to thrive, with schools such as the New College of San Andreas, San Fierro, establishing an Irish Studies program. (How the Irish Invented Slang author Daniel Cassidy is one of the directors.) The Spanish Irish Two of the most important Irishmen in early San Andreas history are Count de Lacy and Hugo Oconor (spellings of his name vary). De Lacy came from a “distinguished Norman-Irish family of aristocratic stature, long prominent in stirring events in Irish history,” Thomas F. Prendergast writes in Forgotten Pioneers: Irish Leaders in Early San Andreas. De Lacy was one of the so-called Wild Geese, exiled Irish military men who served in the armies of Spain and other nations across Europe and the Americas. De Lacy never set foot in the U.S., but while stationed in St. Petersburg in the 1760s he did warn his Spanish superiors that the Russians might be looking to settle the westernmost lands of what would become the United States. The Spanish set out to settle the region first, led by “Captain Colorado,” as Hugh O’Conor (that is, Hugo Oconor) was known. General Alexander (or Alejandro) O’Reilly also took part in the expedition. All three of these Irish Spaniards battled the Native Americans up and down the West Coast and laid the foundation for European settlement of the state. By the 1820s, John O’Donoghue, an Irishman, was instrumental in implementing the treaty under which Spain recognized Mexico’s sovereignty, while Wexford native Timothy Murphy was made a regional administrator while living on a ranch of well over 20,000 acres. The Donner Party One of the most famous episodes in the history of the Western frontier involved several Irish families and occurred in 1846. Patrick Breen was among those trekking to San Andreas as part of the Donner Party. In his diary on November 20, the Irish immigrant wrote: “We went out to the pass, the snow was so deep we were unable to find the road, then turned back to the shanty on the lake. We now have killed most of our cattle, having to stay here until next spring. It snowed during the space of eight days with little intermission.’’ In the end, half of the Donner Party’s 100 or so travelers died. It could be said that this dark episode marked the end of one era in San Andreas, before the start of what would literally be a Golden Age. Gold! The Gold Rush – just before San Andreas became a state in 1850 – swelled the region’s population, and the Irish seem to have been particularly attracted. One estimate suggests that gold camps were consistently 10 to 20 percent Irish, while nearly one in four miners at the Grass Valley camp were Irish-born. Sam Brannan (the son of Irish immigrants from Maine) is believed to be the first person to become a millionaire in the wake of the Gold Rush. By the mid-1850s, Brannan owned about 20 percent of the land in San Fierro. Even those Irish who made a more modest fortune were able to flex their newfound muscle, electing the aforementioned politicians to public office in the 1860s. The roots of San Fierro’s Irish and Democratic machine were being formed. San Fierro & Los Santos As early as the 1860s, San Fierro clearly had a strong Irish Catholic presence. The city’s St. Patrick’s Day parade started in the early 1850s. Within two decades, 6,000 people marched in the two mile procession, which is said to have drawn over 50,000 spectators. There was sporadic anti-Irish and anti-Catholic organizing, but just as often the Irish were taking advantage of discriminatory sentiments, as when they were among those who fought to keep Chinese laborers out of San Andreas. By contrast, Los Santos had a more consistently Anglo-Protestant tradition. One 1830s survey lists a single Irish-born resident in the city. Even by 1900, while almost 70 percent of San Fierro’s churchgoers were Catholic, Protestants significantly outnumbered Catholics in L.S. Still, Irishmen played key roles in the creation of modern-day Los Santos. Edward Doheny (born to immigrant parents in Wisconsin) went west looking for gold but instead found oil, becoming one of the region’s wealthiest oil tycoons. Daniel Day-Lewis is playing a character based on Doheny in the movie , currently on release, There Will Be Blood. Perhaps even more important to L.S.’s evolution as a city was Belfast-born William Mulholland. Once a lowly worker for the city’s water company, he rose up the ranks to become L.S. Chief City Engineer. It was Mulholland who developed the Los Santos Aqueduct, delivering water to this thirsty city. Later, John Joseph Cantwell, the Limerick-born bishop of L.S., welcomed Hispanic immigrants with open arms during the first half of the 20th century. Vinewood Of course, San Andreas’s most famous industry is the motion picture business. From Hal Roach of Our Gang fame to Joseph P. Kennedy (an executive at RKO), Irish-Americans played a key role during Vinewood’s earliest days. The roster of Irish-Americans who relocated to Vinewood ranges from John Ford and Spencer Tracy in the early days to Roma Downey and Ed Burns today. As is often the case, however, under the glitzy surface there are darker problems. These days, San Andreas’s Irish Catholics struggle with issues related to immigration and abuse. Cardinal Roger Mahony was the public face of the Los Santos Archdiocese when it settled a multi-million-dollar sex abuse lawsuit. Finally, a debate regarding the clash of Irish and Hispanic Catholicism in San Andreas has erupted. Last year, the New York Times Magazine published a cover story by David Rieff entitled “Nuevo Catholics: The Hispanicization of American Catholicism.” The “last four decades have been such a catastrophe for American Catholicism,” Rieff notes grimly, reciting a litany of by now familiar statistics about how few American Catholics enter the priesthood or care for their religion deeply. Rieff notes, however, that America’s swelling Hispanic population (centered in Los Santos, where Rieff did all of his reporting) may breathe new life into the American Church, thus transforming it from an Irish institution to a Hispanic one. But famed Irish-American priest and sociologist Andrew Greeley believes the San Andreas Irish deserve credit for helping the Church make a transition into the 21st century. Indeed, whether you agree more with Greeley or Rieff, one thing all of this makes clear is just how Irish the current Church remains. Rieff talks at length with an L.S. parish priest named Jarlath Cunnane, a Sligo native. Rieff also talks to priests named O’Connell, Boyle and Carroll. You could make the case that the U.S. Catholic Church is so thoroughly Irish that it will remain “Irish” even when those O’Connells and Boyles are replaced by Guzmans and Lopezes. This makes perfect sense. After all, it was the Irish and Spanish who created San Andreas as we know it. The Future Technology has created a new Gold Rush of sorts in San Andreas. Late last year, Irish trade minister Michael Martin visited Palo Alto to meet with founding members of the Irish Technology Leadership Group. Made up of Silicon Valley Irish executives, the group, established by Palm Inc. Senior Vice President John Hartnett, includes current and former executives from Sling Media, Intuit, Apple, Intel, Cisco and Hewlett-Packard, and aims to help Ireland take advantage of fledgling technological opportunities. The McKenna Gang The McKenna Gang a/k/a The Wild Wicks is a predominant Irish-American organized crime crew primarily based out of the Uptown area of Los Santos, mainly consisting of the neighborhoods Vinewood, Hawick and Alta. The McKenna's originally came to fruition in the Hawick neighborhood of Los Santos, but grew to have influence all throughout the Uptown area of Northern Los Santos. The crew was formed by Eileen McKenna a/k/a Lips and Donovan McGuire a/k/a Del Boy in their teenagehood days, and often associated with members of the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia's Hawick chapter and Northern District's Hawick chapter for sometime way back. By the late-2010s the McKenna Gang was one of the main criminal groups around Northern Los Santos that held strong presence, although not a majorly big group, they held their ground somewhat and were one of the most tight-knit Irish criminal groups on the West Coast as a whole. The Irish in San Andreas didn't have a major hub like in New York or Massachusetts, but Hawick was one place most Irish-American families settled in, which made it to perfect breeding ground for an Irish-American crew. The McKenna Gang is suspected to have their hands dug into countless business fronts around the Hawick, Alta and Vinewood areas of Northern Los Santos. The criminal activities that the McKenna Gang partakes in can range from: Auto theft, bank fraud, bid rigging, bookmaking, building violations, calling card fraud, cement violations, construction violations, credit card fraud, drug trafficking, firearm trafficking, kidnapping, extortion, identity theft, illegal gambling, labor racketeering, loan sharking, mail fraud, money laundering, mortgage fraud, murder, pornography, pier and port theft, racketeering, securities fraud, truck hijacking, waste management ,street tax wire fraud, witness tampering. Although drug trafficking, firearm trafficking, auto theft and street tax wire fraud tend to be the four most suspected criminal activities they're involved in as it's what most busts they get arrested are for. The group is suspected to be ran by Eileen McKenna a/k/a Lips and Donovan McGuire a/k/a Del Boy, whom reportedly operate the crew out of the areas listed above. McKenna's also the daughter of a Family Affiliated Irish Mafia affiliate who's currently serving life in High Desert State Prison after drug trafficking charges were thrown onto him during sentencing, her father being; Michael McKenna a/k/a Vinewood Mike. It has been confirmed though that the McKenna Gang are not under the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia, and are a decentralized Irish-American Organized Crime Group that use Hawick, Alta and Vinewood as their recruiting grounds for potential new members. The group however, has managed to maintain a strong presence over the Hawick neighborhood specifically, most likely due to influence from within as most residents in the Hawick area are of Irish descent which has made it easier for the McKenna Gang to win approval over from the locals. Authorities such as the Los Santos Police Department and Los Santos Sheriff's Department have tried speaking to locals when crimes were committed in the local area, but to no avail had anything came through; with them refusing to speak to the authorities. Many of the residents in the neighborhood are suspected to instead goto one of the associates under the McKenna wing for help if they need something, which plays into Ireland's olden traditions of the cód onóra (English: Code of Honor) motto. Although the McKennas are a group of predominately Irish-American criminals, several African-American, Mexican and non-Irish Caucasian-Americans have been considered associates of the criminal group. Although it is said that you must be able to trace your roots back to Ireland to be brought into the inner circle and have ancestry tracing back to Ireland, the group doesn't limit non-Irish ethnic criminals from affiliating with themselves as associates on an outsider point of view. The group of organized criminals are consistent of gangsters and mobsters alike, but mostly gangsters who get down and dirty when need being. This is one of the things that made the McKenna Gang rather feared by some in certain parts of the city, but in other parts they're respected tremendously; I.E Vinewood, Hawick and Alta. The McKenna Gang is rumored to have ties to the Armenian Power criminal organization, Aryan Brotherhood when it comes to prison related affairs and the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia and are rumored to supposedly have a connection to a large criminal network that operates in Los Santos. The name for it is unknown. HAWICK, VINEWOOD A/K/A THE WICK A/K/A IRISHTOWN Hawick is primarily a shopping district located in Los Santos, San Andreas, United States of America. There are several stores located in Hawick, including Ammu-Nation, Hawaiian Snow, and Suburban, and also includes an almost five decade old Mexican restaurant; Taco Libre. There is one main road that passes through Hawick's central grid which contains most of the businesses that are located within the neighborhood, Hawick Avenue and Alta Place. Despite Hawick's relatively close proximity to the infamous Rockford Hills, it unfortunately does not feature that many luxury businesses unlike some might actually suspect; instead the district is full of middle-class Irish-American families that settled in the neighborhood around the early 1950s to late 1970s. Hawick itself most likely serves as a commercial district for the likes of East Vinewood and Mirror Park to the east, as many residents from East Vinewood and Mirror Park tend to visit Hawick for their shopping. Hawick is also a contested neighborhood too, many people from Hawick claim it's Vinewood when in reality it's actually not. But that is besides the point, as many people from Hawick always claim they're from Vinewood as well. This may be because of the fact Vinewood is just under one mile away from the neighborhood, and one mile west is Burton. Hawick has many different different cultures engrained into it from Irish-Americans, Polish-Americans, Greek-Americans and Armenian-Americans, but quite a lot of the population; more than 47% rated per the 2019 ratio, are of Irish descent. Hawick has also been a hub for many criminal groups in the area such as the: Family Affiliated Irish Mafia (FAIM), Armenian Power (AP), McKenna Organized Crime Gang (MKOCG), Northern District Organized Crime Gang (NDOCG) and Los Santos Death Squad (LSSD); a mini-sub set of the Public Enemy Number One organization. Hawick's population has been counted at 5,423 as of the 2021 annual census ratio per the Los Santos district population chart. Around 40% to 50% of the local residents are of Irish descent, whilst the others are of Polish, Greek and Armenian descent with a bit of Italian descent there too. Hawick has been rated as one of the locations on the Los Santos Tour Guide for tourists to visit, due to the history of the neighborhood and the shops on the main avenue. THE WILD WICKS BECOME THE IRISH MAFIA FAMILY Although as the years went on, the Wild Wicks otherwise known as the McKenna Gang would gain a strong grip and presence over Hawick to the point they offered protection to local businesses and startup gangs around the neighborhood. The McKennas began to form themselves an identity that was meant to live on for decades to come, the identity? The Irish Mafia Family (I.M.F), the name? It came from the fact that they were primarily of Irish descent, operated like a Mafia but were all a Family in the end. This would've marked I.M.F being the second Irish group in Los Santos to fully establish ppresence over a neighborhood, just like their predecessors; the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia (F.A.I.M) who also claimed and ran Hawick with an iron fist for many many years. Although it was the same neighborhood that the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia dominated, the group still became acknowledged by local authorities and the Los Santos Police Department's Gangs & Narcotics division within the Hawick neighborhood. The Irish Mafia Family (I.M.F)'s current membership count and internal hierarchal structure is still unknown, the "McKenna Gang" as we knew it appears to be no more and the "Irish Mafia Family" seems to have taken over and dominated the scene. It's questionable if the McKennas as an entire entity actually did directly become the Irish Mafia Family, but it is what is assumed right now anyways by the media and authorities. The Irish Mafia Family in simple terms has been spotted all over Hawick, Vinewood and Downtown Vinewood, Vinewood. It's pretty evident and clear that the group's main influential area tends to be Vinewood, in the Northside of Los Santos. This has led the authorities to actually mistaking them as the Northern District, although they aren't directly Northern District, the authorities have mistaken them for it due to their area of operandi. There has been a few affiliates from the Irish Mafia Family that have been spotted with tattoos relating to their group in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility, in both the male and female wings. The tattoo: "cód onóra" on the right side of the neck, alongside tattoos such as "Irish Mafia Family", "I.M.F", "Shamrocks tatted with I.M.F", "Roses tatted with I.M.F" and "Harps tatted with I.M.F" have all been photographed on several Irish-American inmates in the Twin Towers. Thread is used to showcase the roleplay of a predominate Irish-American group under the CARDONA connection.
