Julio Thomas is a character roleplayed by Chalupa_Pants.
Julio once tended to wear neutral-colored clothing in fear of being associated with a gang. His usual outfit consisted of a plaid shirt, a black cap, and a pair of sunglasses. Now, he is known to don his iconic, neon rave mask with a variety of clothing. He states that the mask is his face.
There is really no other way to describe Julio's demeanor other than that he is a bit of a beta. It leads to people underestimating him, which can be a double edged sword. He started his life in the city not wanting to be involved in violent crime, but as time went on, became willing to do whatever he needed to in the name of business.
His passion for crime related business matches his loyalty to the people he cares about. Julio adopts a ride-or-die attitude when his friends are in danger, sometimes at the expense of his morality. This notably includes beating down Detective Emily Reinhart, who had detained his friend Vasily Sazkaljovich after a store robbery went wrong. The pair, along with Falcon Aletta, surrendered themselves to the police due to the guilt they felt for downing the only officer on duty at the time.
Julio originally lived in Dallas, Texas, before moving to Los Santos. In his home state, he witnessed the death of Bobby Smith's twin sister, Matilda Smith. Bobby believes that Matilda's death was the result of a drive-by accident gone wrong. Julio, however, states that Matilda died because a rabid dog who was startled by gun shots attacked her. He also says that the only real casualty of gunfire was Matilda's pet hamster.
Membership in the HOA
Julio is a longtime member of the HOA and is part of Command. Prior to his membership in the HOA, he was their pistol and taser supplier. He was once even caught burgling the houses of Vinewood by them, but due to his position and relationship with the HOA he was only stripped of the stolen goods and let go.
Julio has a reputation in the HOA for acting SBS sometimes, where he sometimes acts foolish but when it is serious he is very focused on getting things done. He can be diplomatic or hot-headed sometimes, stating that he will shoot someone or talk to them to avoid conflict if need be. He gave himself the title of Shadow Leader of the HOA and Captain of the HOA (both of which are approved by Siz.)
He gave himself the title of Supreme OG of the HOA making him the unofficial "leader" of the HOA during Siz's absence.
With the coming of the new city, Julio lost access to the weapons distribution by virtue of Siz also losing the weapons manufacturing connection. Now Julio works odd-jobs from hunting, fishing, deliveries, store robberies, and house burglaries. When he is not doing these things he is at the Mirror Park Tavern hanging out or serving drinks.
He also helps Siz and Saab cook methamphetamine as a fill-in for Manny McDaniels.
