The Los Santos Vagos, also known as Vagos, are a large Mexican-American based street gang; operating out of the Barrio, and based in the Jamestown area.
The Vagos are known for wearing the color yellow, as well as driving yellow vehicles. Vagos is one of the largest gangs in Los Santos, having almost 20 active members. The gang's main business revolves around pushing weapons and drugs.
History & Leaders Edit
Jesus Garcia † Edit
Life Jesus Garcia was the former leader of the Vagos. Under his reign, the Vagos protected Jamestown. They would often operate under the "shoot on sight" rule, unleashing fire on anyone seen entering the area. The "shoot on sight" method created many enemies.
Death Jesus died following a shootout with Chang Gang, after trying to consistently provoke them.
Fernando “Lil Loco” Martinez Edit
After Jesus Garcia's death, Fernando “Lil Loco” Martinez took over as El Jefe. His time as leader of the Vagos was short-lived, as he disappeared from the city shortly after. He would later return to the gang, with a new focus as a loyal soldier.
Arush Patel "Speedy" Santana Edit
Arush Patel "Speedy" Santana, the El Jefe of the new and "reborn" Vagos, began as a soldier during Jesus' time as Leader. After Jesus' death, Speedy was one of the few members left. The Vagos fell apart; past members had died, or had left the gang entirely.
With determination, Speedy slowly worked his way up the ranks - building his reputation, and expanding the Vagos. Speedy led the war with The Families, Ballaz, and the Leanbois. Slowly Speedy's reputation grew, and he was able to encourage new people to join the Vagos.
During the downfall of the Vagos, Speedy fought different wars alone. One of the gangs that he went to war with was the Leanbois. Every day, Speedy and the Leanbois would engage in a shootout with each other in the Southside. During one particular event, Speedy and the Vagos engaged in a shootout with Lang Buddha and Alabaster Slim.
The Vagos successfully gunned down Buddha and Slim; and while the two men were bleeding out in the street, the police and EMS arrived at the scene. Speedy was not comfortable with the idea of the police interfering with gang war related situations. Speedy warned the police that they should not come to the Southside in the future.
Speedy ambushed the ambulance that was carrying Buddha and Slim, and drove to the North, where he spoke to the two men. Buddha was surprised and appreciative of Speedy saving them from arrest. Buddha, Slim, and Speedy agreed that their "beef"/war was over, and opted to form a new alliance. Moving forward, the Leanbois and Vagos often worked together, and continue to have a strong alliance.
Siz Fulker Edit
Siz Fulker is also a close affiliate of the Leanbois, and a shadow (not publicly known) member of the Vagos; acting as "Second in Command" under Speedy. Siz is the founder of the HOA, as well as the "one man gang", Tang Gang. The creation of Tang Gang (and the "tang" color) was based on combining the primary "gang color" of both the Leanbois (red) and the Vagos (yellow), as Siz is a close affiliate and connection for both groups.
By generating important income through the management of a "grow house", Siz tremendously helped in rebuilding the Vagos. Siz's "grow house" consistently produced large amounts of weed, which he would distribute to the Vagos. Speedy would then sell the weed to the citizens of Los Santos for a profit, providing Siz with 10% of each harvest. Siz would also occasionally sell weapons to the Vagos, further supporting their activities, as recent police raids had begun to deplete the Vagos' stockpile of submachine guns.
Siz purchased seven bricks of cocaine from the Leanbois and Vagos at above market price, to additionally financially support them; thus strengthening their relationship further. As Siz is now a pusher for the cocaine business, he now sells large amounts of cocaine to the Vagos. Speedy trusts Siz immensely, and Siz has tremendous respect for Speedy. Speedy has given Siz access to his personal stash house in the Barrio, and has offered to supply Siz with weapons, should he ever need them.
