Nino Chavez is the founder and CEO of Sahara International. He has the mind of an entrepreneur and a heart of a master criminal. Also he thinks with his penis.

He has a cocaine habit and likes to have some on him, so can snort up and get high whenever he feels like it.

He is one of the wealthiest citizens of Los Santos, who also added more to his vast fortune after becoming one of the winners in Sun Moon's $1 Million Amazing Race.

He works with everyone throughout the city and specifically does not care to get involved with personal beef with people or gangs. He believes the primary enemy to all criminals is law enforcement and in some ways the department of justice. His motive is profit, helping criminals, and opening a port in Los Santos.

He owns the Clucking Bell Farms Chicken Factory in Paleto, and owns half of the Casino as a silent partner. Tim Lee owed Nino money so rather than pay him back, he offered him half of the casino.

He is role played by dasMEHDI.

Background Edit

Nino Chavez is an immigrant that lives off making small time cash from working at local convenience and department stores. He isn’t able to maintain his jobs for long periods of time, because he has a secret that very few people know. He’s a fugitive, on the run. Born into poverty, Nino struggled growing up, as his father departed soon after his birth. Before his 2nd birthday, he was relieved to the local government by his mother, leaving him in the hands of corrupt, power-hungry men. Shortly after his 5th birthday, he was dumped out on the street as a sex slave, where he worked for Jhek Steno, a powerful congressman with influence that reached beyond just his country’s borders. After a decade of tyranny, Steno was murdered in a drive-by shooting, which left his workers homeless and hungry. Nino was in despair, working for anyone who could offer him food and shelter. During one of his regular strolls around the capital, looking for work, a man only known as "X" offered him work on the outskirts of the country as a peach farmer, which would provide him with adequate supplies of food and a home. He unhesitatingly accepted the offer, and rode with the mysterious man.

Many years passed. On a summer morning, Nino stumbled upon a stash of cocaine and a handgun tucked inside of a peach crate that had be slightly wedged open. A bit taken back, he curiously walked to the loading dock where the peaches were set for shipping. He pried one of the crates open, only to find even more cocaine. One after another. Each crate he checked. More guns. More coke.

After confronting X about the situation, his now-father came clean. It is then Nino was offered a new position in the organization, as a "head of transportation". The first step to take over the family business. His first step into the drug trade.

Many more years went by. Nino grew tougher. Smarter. Each day learning more from X. Yet his life changed in an instant when X was found dead in his home. Resting peacefully in a pool of blood on satin sheets, arms around one of his finest women. The government had finally caught up to him.

It was now up to Nino to continue X’s legacy.

As time passed, Nino soon became known as Papi Chulo - a drug trafficking mastermind and a playboy with the face everyone wanted to sit on. It wasn’t long before he had control of 80% of his country’s drug trade. He was flagged on various INTERPOL watch lists. At the same time, he was seen as a legend among degenerates around the world. Hip hop artists produced tracks referencing him. Gambling websites created caricatures of his face to draw players. He was on top of the world.

Yet fate had it’s way with Nino too. Much like X, the government spent years investigating him, and soon they made their move on him too.

Nino found himself on the run. Through various mules and compromised checkpoints, Papi Chulo was able to escape the country with a forged documentation. Once a man with obscene power, living a lavish lifestyle that others could only dream of, he now finds himself in a foreign land trying to live a simple life, all the while avoiding deportation from the local immigration officers. Living as a civilian life is not easy for Nino. Aside from battling his incurable withdrawals from high quality narcotics, he longs to regain the power and status he once relished in. He knows that regaining this will not be an easy task. Much like his struggle from going from a peach farmer to the drug lord he had become in his native country - Nino now seeks to use his skills to provide customer satisfaction at the convenience and department stores, to one day have enough money to start his new empire afresh.

Early to Mid 20's Edit

Nino starts anew as a taxi driver in Los Santos and begins making connections in the city. Nino goes about his initial criminal shenanigans as a petty thief primarily committing crimes together with the Lean Bois. After getting settled with the city and understanding where pieces fall, he drifts apart from his old life of petty crime. Nino launches his new enterprise with the creation of Wet Works. The headquarters is located at the Kortz Center and is started up with his friends Dimitri, Amber, Lily, Julian, Mav, and Randall who vowed to be loyal to one another. Wet Works, while mostly legitimate, the company was used as a front for laundering money by Nino for his old oversea's contacts to potentially create Los Santos as a new port for narcotics. 

Nino and the Lost MC made a deal for the transportation of methamphetamine to Nino's contact overseas. A black van transported the meth cargo to the Paleto airstrip, and a helicopter would airlift the van to its next destination.

In a drunken stupor, Randall told sensitive information to other individuals who relayed it back to Nino. Nino and Lily concluded that Randall broke his vow and became a liability. They set up a plan to murder Randall. Nino walks and talks with Randall then stops in front of the Clucking Bell Farms factory chicken grinder. Nino stabs Randall. Nino and Lily dispose of his body in the chicken grinder, murdering him. Julian cleans up the factory, and together they collaborate a fabricated story to the police.

Upon Randall's disappearance in the city, Randall's childhood friend investigates for potential wrongdoing. Nino meets with Randall's friend on the docks and confesses he murdered Randall. Randall's friend stabs Nino in the neck with the same knife used to stab Randall. Lily shoots Randall's friend, and he dies. Lily applies pressure to Nino's neck and waits for the police to arrive on the scene. They transport Nino to a hospital, saving his life. They pin Randall's murder on his friend.

Police begin investigating Randall's friends and employers at Clucking Bell Farms and Wet Works. Randall's murder case gets dropped as there was not enough evidence to prove any conviction for any party potentially involved. Nino decided to dissolve the company, leave his friends, and start again elsewhere.

Periodically, Nino returned to Los Santos to conduct the transportation of meth for a new Lost MC chapter. He also advised the new leader, the lost MC president Bobby "Dragon" Goodman, a former prospect for the previous chapter.  

Late 20's and Early 30's Edit

After a long time absence, Nino returns to Los Santos to restore one of his initial goals in the city. As Nino reconnects with those close to him, it is learned he has secretly involved himself with another unknown criminal entity who has decided to set up shop in the city. Nino creates his shell companies, Sahara International and Clucking Bell Farms, for his handlers and begins his adventure in creating a matriarchal society for the growing criminal underground in Los Santos and begins setting in motion a series of elaborate conspiracies to take out and help cultivate new and old criminal minds.

Sahara International Edit

Sahara International is a facade for a money laundering shell company, engaging in illegal business ventures, like the sale of narcotics, and concealing money from illegal gun sales. It is a scheme created for an international criminal organization who Nino has become the representative of for the Port of Los Santos, while the legitimacy of the business does exist, it is indirectly obtaining some funds elsewhere.

Nino begins the initial phase of the operation by dishing out random product orders to find people and groups who seemed capable to follow instructions and be discrete. During this period, Nino learns the difficulty of assigning people simple tasks, creating layers of separation, and having the expectation of people following instructions. Nino does not like the intermingling of groups to accomplish tasks together and would like to incentivize people who stay with a set group. Over time, to his disappointment, Nino begins to not care anymore for the sake of progress and embraces the jack of all trades ideology while forsaking longevity to a quiet and organized enterprise and makes arrangements he eventually needs to stage a Plan B.

Handlers Edit

The handlers operate under aliases in different ports and cities around the world and are willing to sell their specialty goods while taking into account the number of products in circulation. Among the group, Nino's pseudonym is "Matador".

Alias Description
Morpheus Is the core broker of all trade and transactions within the organization.
Lucky Operates in Texas and is interested in buying narcotics specifically weed and selling base material commodities.
Sangre Operates in South America.
Butcher Scares Nino.
Black Moon Operates in China and is interested in exporting cars. He sells small caliber and high caliber weapons, specialty items for specific tasks, IP theft, vehicles, commodities, counterfeit items, information and technology. He does not deal in "hot" weapons.
Beaute Operates in France and is interested in acquiring jewelry and wine. Beaute sells daggers, hatchets, knuckle dusters, muskets, and some vintage pistols.

The contracts contain product orders from each one of his handlers. His handlers prefer each request to be in separate shipping containers. Directly and indirectly, several individuals and groups in the city help Nino fulfill contracts from his handlers. The idea behind the deals is to involve as many people as possible with layers of separation. Completing contracts for his handlers unlocks new blueprints and opportunities to enter the criminal economy in Los Santos.

Nino's handlers communicate using an encrypted email service called Terminal 33. After several product orders get completed, they contact Nino for an exclusive contract. First, they send a messenger to Los Santo's, then they call through a private number, asking for his ping to arrange a meeting for a private conversation. Typically his handlers send the dockworker, Trevor, to give Nino intel packets detailing about the task.

Heists Edit

The heists are a means to unlock new blueprints from Nino's handlers.

Fifteen specific vehicles were to be stolen and placed at a drop off location at the docks. The Dockworker, Trevor, moved the cars to its final destination. The crew split up in teams of two. Nino and Dragon was the first pair, and Dean and Viktor were the other. Eventually, Dean had to leave, and Curtis took his place.

The clients' final order was a police cruiser. Dragon, Viktor, and Curtis went to work on a plan to acquire one and Nino gave them police positioning. Dragon and Viktor get placed into custody. Curtis drives away with the police mustang. He loses police multiple times.

Nino
JJ
Curtis
Randy
Nino, JJ, and Curtis meet up for the first time together for a dry run. While figuring out how to use explosives, someone who passed by calls the police and detective McCormick arrives. Curtis drives after the car and finds the vehicle hiding in a corner, and McCormick leaves as quick as he came. McCormick crashes and JJ lights up the car and shoots McCormick. McCormick heard a voice that sounded like Nino. Nino calls Buck as the fourth he is masked, brings a boat, silent, and they continue.

During the real heist, the initial plan goes out the window, and they move towards formulating a new one with Randy because further details come to surface about the heist. A lot of scuff happens during attempting to use the gear, and the "Dockworker" makes his second public appearance to fix it. The explosive only worked for Randy, and thus he became the chosen one. The new plan, for the most part, is stop or die as everything scuffs. Nino shots two security officers from Group 6. The crew tries to grab as much loot as possible from the truck. Archer is the first to arrive on the scene. Everyone gets in the car, and Curtis drives off for a small chase. The vehicle crashes. Guns blazing, Curtis knocks out Nino, and the rest of the crew finishes the police.

They find an EMS to help Nino up, return to the security truck to check for any loot left, transferred loot to the back of their car, JJ moves the loot to another vehicle (to ship off at a later point), they steal another car, change clothes, drive towards the shore, dump all of the hardware into the ocean, see's the birds are watching guy zoom pass, they talk at a house overlooking the sea, and everyone goes their separate ways.

Weapons Edit

Nino recently started selling weapons throughout Los Santos to criminals and distributes to a network of people. The trade has changed multiple times throughout Nino's tenure with:

  1. The introduction of the Wizard
  2. Internal changes to online to offline operatives
  3. The revitalization and removal of weapon crates
  4. The revitalization and removal of manufacturing from several individuals

Initially, Nino tried to incorporate new people to start the operation with, but with no loyalty existing in Los Santos, Nino turns to 'unknown' operatives to aid him in this venture. The distribution first started with dead drops of weapons. Nino realized that using dead drops to supply a city is not viable, and has since changed his operation to be more elusive to prying eyes.

Timeline of Gun Deals from Past to Present
Organization Status Description
The Families (Former) Chef brought Nino to an undisclosed location where he was shown their growing operation for weed, from then on, Nino met Chef privately to conduct weapon deals. Later Nino informs the family that changes are happening, and he is no longer involved in the business of dealing weapons. Afterward, they fell off the radar. Lost MC (Former) Nino told the Lost his operation is changing. Afterward, they fell off the radar.
Korean Mafia (Sun Clan) (Former) Met Leslie Ling to start a gun operation with him. Nino had thoughts to do business with Sun Moon; however, Leslie Ling advised against the idea. Stopped doing operations with him after his disappearance from the city.
Cop Killa Records (Former) Met Gomer Colton and Alabaster Slim. Nino gave them an opportunity to allow them to be distributors. They never filled out the proper paperwork required. They buy indirectly through others.
The Watchers (Former) Met Jacob Harth and Evita "Mother" Nimm. Stopped doing operations with them after receiving weapons for free they decided to ghost Nino for two months, have an entitlement attitude, and complained among themselves with no feedback, follow-up, or communication to Nino. Griselda "Zelda" Harth leaked Nino's name to people unrelated to the operation. Circumvented working with Nino by going through Milo Wealth and selling weapon crates.
Harmony Repairs Garage (Active)
Vagos (Active) Given a connection to weapons directly to Nino after the weapons Milo Wealth was selling undercut Nino's business partners who spoke to Speedy to set up a deal. Speedy was unsure of weapons prices and gave valuable feedback to Nino. Nino did not want to deal with the headache associated with the business of selling weapons, but because of the uncertainty of the market, Nino stepped in to help.
Lean Bois (Active) After successfully completing the Gruppe 6 heist with Nino's Crew, Curtis Swoleroid was given the weapon connect.
Chang Gang (Active) After completing the Gruppe 6 heist with Nino's Crew, Randy Bullet was given the weapon connect.

Chang Gang lost their positive reputation with Nino after they publicly slandered and spread false rumors. It affected Nino's everyday work relationships with his partners. They eventually admitted their wrongdoing.

Nino told Vinny Pistone about what happened from start to finish with Sonya Summers and said he would get back to Nino and see what the group thinks, but if it were up to only Vinny he would do it. Nino privately tells Vinny that the gun connection is also on the line after completing the job and this would be a good welcome back and "Redemption Arc" present for them. After negotiating $175k for the capture and delivery and 100k for the failure of the mission with the Chang Gang, they decided to do the mission with Charles Johnson, Vinny Pistone, Mr.Chang, and Ramee El-Rahman. Chang Gang completed the mission and earned $200k and a weapon connect from Nino.

Anonymous Business Partners (Active) They do not want to be known, but they exist.

Nino has no control over determining the inventory of weapons in circulation and cannot control prices of the weaponry offered. However, he can negotiate with his handlers to fluctuate prices to be more favorable from the feedback given to Nino.

Nino has told all of his weapon dealers:

  1. Negotiations with the Wizard has been fruitful, and the Wizard will change how he operates.
  2. Weapons being sold will break because they're counterfeits cheaply assembled from China.
  3. Police will be receiving tools to find hot weapons connected to a crime.  

Clucking Bell Farms Edit

When Nino purchased the chicken factory in Paleto a long time ago, his intentions were to create an equal job opportunity in Los Santos. He employed Bobby "Dragon" Goodman to be the manager, which caused problems amongst criminals, because Dragon claimed Paleto his home and wanted to be informed when criminals were doing activities in the area.

But when it started to escalate into Dragon being shot multiple times, Nino got fed up with the back and forth and demoted him to security, and employed Allen Widemann as the manager.
