Welcome to the State Of San Andreas, where has no known of a fate because it may suddenly fall and be lost in the edge of forever of corruption and crime. It is like, someone is heating up this huge put of San Andreas State and mixing it with a big spoon. However, who are the animals who turned San Andreas into a corrupt, American wasteland? Well, probably, the answer is everyone. In this state, there's no white or no black person, everyone is gray. Everybody is looking for using the ugly opportunities they may gain, becuase there is nothing else to do. Cunning crack dealers, bloodthirsty gun smugglers, corrupt law enforcers, money-hungry politicans... they are all gray.
26 years old, African-American youngster, Kaynard "Kane" Brice is a Los Santos based crack dealer who hangs around with a handgun in one pocket and a sample package of crack cocaine in the other one. He had nothing to do, Kane had to choose a life of crime, hitting and running on the streets, taking parts in little armed robberis and eventually he has become a crack dealer under the wings of infamous drug gang 'The Ballas'.
Being a brother figure to all of his homies, Kane must think the goodness of the members of his crew, besides he makes sure that he's alive. Sure, the self-protection is the first rule to stay alive in San Andreas, but being a crew, being a gang, being a family requires thinking someone else.
As both of a friend and a punk to the society, Kane must cope with all the rough gang wars, destructive civil wars, hard playing corrupt law enforcers and all the other tough things streets of San Andreas bring with themselves.
Known as 'Gang Capital Of The States', Los Santos has been decayed by its high rate of crime, especially gang related crime, in the last decades. During the last decades, there is an appreciable increase in the crime actions throughout the city. The main reason of this increase is Los Santos' infamous street gangs who have reputably become stronger. After the eventual occurence of the crack epidemic, Los Santos has become a junction for drug dealers. Now today, Los Santos is shaken with brutal gang wars between street gangs, especially the most local gangs of the city such as Aztecas, Ballas, Families and Vagos.
Despite being melt with gang related crime, brutal gang wars and high dose of corruption, Los Santos would be a fun place, too. You can take some shots and do 'sweet' dancing moves in Alhambra Club in Idlewood, if you want to unwind by hot sand and refreshing water, Marina Beach would be a good choice. With all bad and the good things, Los Santos is both a paradise and a hell for their visitors.
San Fierro is one of the most controversial cities in the States, because of the both conservative and liberal lifestyle of it. Although seems like quite enough, San Fierro is shaken with excessive amounts of marijuana and cocaine smuggled into the city and it's kind of a reason and a result due to the interesting lifestyle of the city. During the last years, it's implied by SFPD that excessive amounts of crack cocaine is produced and opened to trade in San Fierro but is generally pushed to the other cities of the States, but especially Los Santos, so drug trade, by appearance, seems inactive in the city.
The most known icon of the city is Gant Bridge, a good-looking but capitalist construction just above the sea. Be sure to pay a visit to famous district of the city, Queens if you want to try different sexual tastes. In Chinatown, you can find cheap, average but stalky things, be careful and ever, never piss off the local Triad gang in the area. Of course, smoke the infamous San Fierro marijuana if you visit the city.
Known as "City Of Sins", Las Venturas is maybe as crook as Los Santos but things are generally covered with legal stuff down here. Maybe that's why it's called "City Of Sins", because sin is a shameful but somehow legal thing. The city makes money mostly on its shiny lifestyle consisting of gambling, shopping, fine dining and nightlife.
Although Las Venturas seems like a "dark-bitter chocolate" utopia, sometimes its dark side can be clearly seen. For example, Cosa Nostra, who have been a major control of most of the casinos, are charged with several murders and pushing drugs, especially cocaine under their legitmate fronts. Another thing is you may get over seriously dangerous adventures until you come to the city, because there are more illegal and brutal hazards waiting for you outside of the city. Crackhead rednecks, mostly racist groups of biker outlaws and more... Be sure that you have at least a handgun in your pocket before thinking of a visit to the city.
Kaynard "Kane" Brice
Kane has spent his whole life in South Los Santos where is generally occupied by dangerous, ambitious and ruthless gangbangers. Probably that's why he chose a criminal lifestyle. Kane has been involved in crime at early ages because of his controversial family (consist of a father who left them when Kane was a very little boy, a crack cocaine addict mother who is now living in Carcer City with her idiotic boyfriend, a deceased baby brother who died five weeks after his born), spoiled friends (who are generally gangbangers, hookers or drug dealers) and his effort to protect himself. His aunt Maude was the only one who wanted the good for him, she raised him up but couldn't stop Kane from being a full-time drug dealer despite her all efforts. Eventually Kane found himself taken part as a small-time crack dealer under the wings of infamous Ballas when he was at the teen times.
Kane managed to climb the ladders of power and reputation because of his ambition and anger to the society and managed to rise the status of the underboss of Front Yard Ballas crew "The Homes". Having put a lot of work for his gang, Kane is respected and appreciated by many and he's generally seen as a clever and a powerful 'brother' figure by the members of his crew.
Columbus "Combo" Burton
Columbus aka Combo is a typical East Los Santos young who has grown up in violence. Well, he's psychopath, sadistic, violent, furious, hot tempered shortly all the sh*ts you can't imagine. However, he has "reasonable" reason for this: a difficult childhood. He often states that his father was not good to him, he was always abusing with drugs and alchocol and beating him and his mother. If someone pushes on him because of his extreme anger, he always hid under his "damn" father. For protecting himself, he confidentially went to boxing lessons where he learnt fighting (with the money he got from washing cars and selling paperbags on the streets). One day, his father was beating his mother as usual, in the end, Combo couldn't stand this and started to deliver sudden punches to his father's face. His mother tried to stop extremely raged Columbus but he didn't stop. It ended with his father being beaten up to death and Columbus going to Correctional Facility Of City Of Los Santos for six years. Thanks to his unpredictable behavior and his extreme rage, Combo managed to spend six years at the jail in peace. After he got released, he was shaken by the news of his mother raped and killed, this made Combo's psychology gone to a worse way and led him to develop the addiction of smoking crack. Young Columbus became a feared name on the South Los Santos because of his extreme rage and his unpredictable behavior and he ended up being a crack dealer for Ballas gang.
Combo rised quickly thanks to the reputation due to his extreme rage, unpredictable behavior and his ambitious lifestyle. He pulled many favours for his gang and eventually he was rewarded with the leadership of Front Yard Ballas' "The Homes" crew. He's both respected and feared by his men presumably due to his unstable psychologic state. Combo would seem like a fat sack of potato but he's strong and fast as hell.
Nathan "Nate" Jackson
Actually Nathan has always been a decent guy with bright ambitions but he couldn't have the advantages to make them real. Nathan was a skilled boy at basketball, it was hardly seen that he was beaten in a ball game and that kid was totally ambitios about this skill of him, wanted to be a big shot basketball player. However, he hadn't the necessary advantages and he had to grow up in a violent gangster culture which eventually led him to be a weed and crack dealer. Nate states that his mother was an useless crack addict meanwhile his father died in a bar fight. Seems like things were not well enough for him to be a basketball player. Although Nathan knows he has lost in the life, he still wants to reach his dream but he knows that it's impossible.
Now Nate runs with Front Yard Ballas' "The Homes" crew and is a member who's highly appreciated by the other members, although he lacks the tough, violent side of a criminal. Nate, maybe, is the most mature man in his crew; he always tries to do what is sensible. He acts calm but also he acts logically, presumably that's why he is liked by many so much.
Henry "Smut" Badger
There's not much specific information about Smut's past. It's know that he started to produce and deal weed and crack on the streets when he was at the high school. He often states that most of the kids in his neighbourhood, generally described him as "creepy and weird".
Smut's a member of "The Homes" crew but he generally keeps himself to himself and is busy with running his own "enterprises" where he is in non-stop production of weed and crack cocaine. Smut is kind of anti-social, he goes outside on rare occasions and he's generally inactive in gang matters but interestingly bond to both Nate and Kane.
Sean Troy "Suge" Tucker
Sean's type of a worker every boss would like to have. He's sharp, calculative, smart and violent, dangerous when necessary. Suge is one of the top lieutenants in Ballas' Front Yard set, running the muscle side of the business. It surely can be said he's a feared and a reputable guy. When he walks down the street, everybody would get out of his way. More importantly, Suge's a boss that is both respected and taken as a idol by his employees. Also, Suge's a real street wise; he is willing to help any new blood if they have potential. Although, Suge's wise yet a feared man, it seems like he's really dominated by Ballas underboss West, feeling it compulsory to keep him in touch. However, presumaby it seems like it's of the painy side of the hierarchy system.
Nathan "Nay Nay" Wright
Nay Nay can be considered as a sterotypical gangster who lives "fast and dangerous" but actually this is caused by his negligent and relatively idiotic lifestyle. Nay Nay runs with Front Yard Ballas' "The Homes" crew which is undeniably big force down Sout Los Santos but Nay Nay is an ambitious guy and he wants to chase bigger things. Yet, Nay Nay seems to have a cloudy judgement, he chases eveything that worths money without questioning.
Despite being a member of "The Homes" crew, Nay Nay rarely spends time with his crew, almost always hangs out at shiny nighclubs, especially Alhambra. Besides weed and crack addiction, Nay Nay has a special love for dust cocaine and that is even bigger than his obsession with weed and crack.
Benny "Bulleye" Manson
Benny, with his street name Bulleye, is one of the top Front Yard Balla lieutenants, running the narcotics side of the business. Bulleye is still an ambitious man as much as he was when he was raw, probably that's the reason why Benny got his street name: an endless sense of ambition and competition. Bulleye can be considered as a good idol to the small-times, except for the unnecessary amount of extreme violence. Bulleye is a clever man but generally he is defeated by the violent nature of him. When he acts like a man with brains, things generally end up in much more worse ways. Bulleye operates out of Alhambra Club, a popular club in Idlewood, so he's able to get his product out of the hand easily.
Omar Curtis "West" Simmons
West can be considered as the underboss who is actually the leader with his sharp, wise, intelligent, shrewd mind. West looks after the Ballas gang in a relationship of mutual responsibility with his lifelong friend Christopher Benjamin "Big Ben" Brown. However, the thing is West depicts intelligent side meanwhile Big Ben depicts the intimidating, raged and violent side. West is a true follower of pragmatism philosophy, he generally shows it in his dialogues and keeps a huge collection of John Dewey's books in his library. West can be seemed as a man with no brains and no balls but actually West is a wise man and does whatever it takes to carry out his thoughts. With his gear-working brain and cold, ruthless nature, West is a highly feared and respected man on the streets.
Tenpenny is the head of LSPD's infamous (or notorious maybe) C.R.A.S.H team. Well, it can not be said for sure if Tenpenny is a good or a bad cop. As an apology to his crook actions, Tenpenny states it's his different philosophy to clean up the streets; dealing with gangsters, sometimes let the good guys die, let the bad guys run. It's all Tenpenny's weird philosophy to fight with crime according to him. So, in this city of a big mess, we can not sure if Tenpenny plays dirty or saint. Tenpenny is always in need of unlikely friendships that may provide him some worthy opportunities.
Pulaski is the forever sidekick of C.R.A.S.H leader Frank Tenpenny and acts as the second man of the team. Pulaski clearly fetches the freaking philosophy of Tenpenny, classifying dealing with gangsters, pocketing drug money as a definite way to fight with the crime. Pulaski does not seem to be as wise as Tenpenny, because whatever the situation is Eddie becomes the one who blindly follows Tenpenny.
Sakis "Zeus" Papadakis
Zeus is responsible for the management of a crew of Greek drug dealer who recently settled in Los Santos. He has the responsibility of a leader but it's arguable that how much he carries this responsibility. Zeus's completely a incapable leader, he generally puts him and people near him into trouble and yes, he has almost no weightiness on the streets, showing no sense of intelligent or violence. Actually what makes him important is his bosses from Russian Mafia, who are looking for business oppurtinities in Los Santos. So Zeus gets in contact with almost all of the drug gangs in Los Santos to complete his task. During this business adventure of him, Zeus meets with both entertaining and painy life in Los Santos.
Also Zeus is notably steroid junkie, likes to be pumped but prefers to be obsessed with steroid than making some real gym piece of work.
David P. Collins
A Caucasian dust cocaine dealer, known for his attracting charisma besides high-quality product. It seems like crime means "fun and action" for Collins, because it appears like that he likes to trade drugs in nightclubs and yet he can't stop keeping his head above the water because of the violent life that comes along with becoming a drug dealer. Although David is a successful and a charistmatic businessman on the streets, he's too much egoistic and selfish, that's his fragile point.
Being in the game since 1970s, Ballas is one of the oldest gangs in the Los Santos neighbourhood, having an interesting, modern philosophy that works well: "Stick loyal to the homies, be unfair to the others.". With this strategy, Ballas seem to have become a great power in Los Santos, especially in the South Central Los Santos. Unlike their sworn enemies, The Families, Ballas seem to be prone to change their principles depending on the conditions of the situation or the time. Ballas works a "push drugs and separate" policy on The Families, which has shaken hard The Families and caused it to be separated in different, hostile sets. Even some OGs started to use and sell yay on their main hood, Grove Street.
Ballas develop hostile manners towards the Latin gangs of the city, such as Aztecas and Vagos but these rivalries are not as fierce as the one with Families.
Ballas' main revenue comes from dealing drugs, especially weed and crack cocaine. Also they are though to be extremely violent because they take part in several arms deals and petty but fierce crimes, such armed robberies which mostly mean hittin up liqueur shops in the hood.
Ballas, appreciably have become a great power in Los Santos criminal underworld, especially in the late 80's, after putting their sworn enemies Families hard. They're though to be the main source of the crack cocaine being pushed around the city and have been running several crack dens which they use to produce their own products. Further, their leadership crew is alleged to be have their thumb on the political issues of the city.
Ballas act as separate different three sets and they're acting free in their own internal issues but all are strongly allied when it comes to a common danger. Front Yard Ballas, settled in Idlewood, are the strongest and the most dominant and most active. Apart from Kilo Tray Ballas, settled in Glen Park, the other sets are supplied by the Front Yard set. Kilo Tray Ballas, settled in Glen Park and Jefferson, generally act inactively, mostly into producing crack in their main crack den near Glen Park and distributing in their respective hood of Glen Park. The other set, Rollin' Heights Ballas are settled mostly in East Central Los Santos but they also run the neighbourhood of Willowfield. This set is allegedly thought to be having disputes with another East Los Santos local gang, Vagos sometimes.
Families is one of the oldest gangs in the Los Santos region. Families was a reputable gang back in the gang, posed fear on the streets of Los Santos until the crack epidemic hits the city hard in the mid and late 80's. With most of the gangs in the city entering and mastered in the crack trade, Families entered into a "downfall" process because of their leader Sean "Sweet" Johnson's strict principle against the drug trade, but especially hard drugs like crack cocaine. Now the ties between Families sets are alleged to be not tights as they were, and presumed to be dissolving due to the downfall of the gang because the main set, Grove Street Families' approach on drugs.
Although the gang is not in the drug game, Families is thought to be extremely violent because of their connection with many gun running operations, murders, gangbangings, armed robberies, burglaries and thefts taking place in Los Santos, but especially in the South Central Los Santos.
Families acts as three different sets, with Grove Street Families being in the top of the hierarchy, the head and founding set. However, it's thought that the ties between three sets are intense, the supporting sets Seville Boulevard Families and Temple Drive Families apparently want to cut their all ties with Grove set.
Like Families and Ballas, Vagos is one of the oldest gangs in Los Santos region, also it's presumed to be the largest hispanic gang in Los Santos. They are a large Mexican street gang that is heavily into dust cocaine trade which is supplied to them by their connections from Mexican Cartel. With Mexican Cartel on their side, Vagos have managed to be a dominant power in whole Los Santos, but especially in East Los Santos.
Vagos apparently have issues with all other ancient street gangs of Los Santos; Aztecas, Ballas and Families but they seem to be fierce only with Aztecas. The reason for the wat between two gangs is thought to be Vagos trying to take over their territory and pushing them to drugs which Aztecas have been traditionally opposed to.
Unlike Ballas and Families, Vagos don't seem to use "set system". It's probably due to they're mostly centered in East Los Santos region. Vagos answers eventually to only one person, their top man, their leader. Although, the leader is the only man in the charge, lieutenants act as supervisors for him and the members must answer to the lieutenants due to the hierarchy system.
Aztecas, unlike Families, Ballas and Vagos, are a bit newer street gang in Los Santos, but it can be classified as "old-school". Like Families, Aztecas expressed a policy against drug dealing, especially crack cocaine because for them, it would damage the spirit of the hood. Although they're not dealing drugs, Aztecas are a bunch of Latin gangsters known for violent behaviors; they're extremely violent and dangerous against the other gangs.
Unlike Ballas and Families, Aztecas didn't separate their gang into sets, because they have little amount of hood. Though, they are excessive gang power at the south-western South Los Santos but they seem like to isolate themselver from other gangs, they like being close to them.
Vagos and Aztecas, two most notorious hispanic street gangs in Los Santos, have a special hatred towards each other, always into an endless competition. The reason is unknown but it's believed to be Vagos trying to expand down Aztecas territory and pushing drugs there.
Dominican Cartel is a small population of hispanic drug dealers, yet they're extremenly powerful. Dominican Cartel has been in the drug game for years, especially heavily on dealing dust cocaine and PCP but now they're seeking the opportunities of expanding down to crack business which worths like 24-carat gold these days. Dominican Cartel is an extremely violent, dangerous and feared name thanks to their leader Viktor Perez who is defined as a violent, dangerous maniac who deals drugs hard.
Dominicans are generally centered in Jefferson, they're thought to operate from a electrical repair shop there, possibly producing dust cocaine and PCP there, then distributed to the streets from Los Santos.
Actually, not wide as a gang, Greeks are a crew of drug dealers who work for Russians and seek new opportunities for them. They're thought to be a big LSD supplier, yet they're willing to make cooperations with other gangs, because they want to expand their interests (moving into trade of the drugs such as crack cocaine, crystal meth etc.) for their Russian bosses and for theirselves. Also they're thought to have connections with several burglars from South Central Los Santos.
Cobra Motorcycle Club is a motorcycle club formed by a bunch of Vietnam War veterans, in the woods of Los Santos. Their main revenue is pushing crystal methamphetamine, which they cook on their own, on the streets. Although based in the countryside Los Santos, Cobra MC have a territory in Northern Los Santos but they are not common operation there. Also, Cobra MC is charged with numbers of murder, rape cases that took place in Los Santos countryside. Also, they extremely rally white supremacist/racist policy, they avoid doing business with whom are non-white and they express hostile behaviors towards the whites who do business with non-whites, claiming that whites who do business with other races are betraying their race.
