Los Rojos Bandidos is an independent and notorious criminal organization mostly spread across United States of San Andreas. The group was formed in the early years of the 21th century during the reign of Renato and Xavier Munoz
. The organization is well known for narcotrafficking, illegal weapon distribution, top level heists, kidnappings and other minor criminal activities, including money laundering, robberies, bribe and threatening. As a means of intimidation, the organisation conducted tens of murders throughout the country without any mercy granted.
Los Rojos Bandidos and their associates made it clear that whoever stood against them would risk being killed along with their families with no warnings.
Even though the organisation is based mostly on hispanic culture and tradition, it is not based on a specific race. Therefore anyone who is interested in becoming an associate or an insider has their own chance, no matter what nationality, race or ethnicity they have. Whoever attempts to join this network must have cold blood and a mindset to kill.
- Chapter I - "The struggle..."[/size]
Everything started in a small neighboardhood in San Fierro, the place of origin for Munoz brothers. They come from a relatively poor family which struggled to make a living from one day to another due to their father who was having locomotive
and auditive disorders after serving army detachment for his country for three years. Even the paychecks he was receiving for his services couldn't entirely cover the needs of the family.
This situation led the first born, Renato, to get a job to provide for his family since he was 23 years of age by that time. He was working as a part time courier and also as a full time worker for a local warehouse. However, his little brother, Xavier, dropped out of school at the age of 16 and slowly got himself involved
in gang activities. Back then, one of the largest gangs operating in San Fierro was Los Rifas. It didn't take much until he started distributing and selling drugs under their name and got himself deeper and deeper into the illegal scene as the days went by.
San Fierro Police Department has been aware of the entire drug distribution network after three months of detailed investigation. In no time, 57 members of Los Rifas, including the little Xavier, got arrested for narcotrafficking and also distribution of high risk drugs such as heroin and amphetamine.
Now 18, Xavier Munoz is two years deep into a sentence in federal prison for three related, nonviolent drug crimes: possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin and amphetamine, and operating a "crack distribution house". Although a trial judge initially sentenced him to 8 years in prison, the prosecutor filled two separate appeals, ultimately triggering an automatic sentencing mechanism that forced a federal judge to move Xavier to Los Santos high security Prison to serve no more than one year and seven additional months, cancelling the initial verdict.[/size]
- Chapter II - "A new beginning..."
The news that his little brother has been arrested have been devastating for Renato. After living in San Fierro for another year and five months alongside his family he decided to use all his savings and move to Los Santos as his brother's sentence was about to come to an end. Although he moved to a different country, there wasn't a big improvement in Renato's life, economically speaking. Until his brother was officialy released from prison he was living a modest life in one of the complexes that surround Idlewood.
5th of May was a happy day, it was the date Xavier was officialy released, the exact same day Munoz brothers have met each other for the first time in the last four years. From this point, they started working and chasing their dreams together, starting a fresh life.
They moved to Las Colinas, a more peaceful area, in a place they could get their minds off of problems and focus more on their income and bettering their lives.
Never have they thought they would get to manage their own business here in Los Santos. One day they came across a serbian businessman who offered them a great leasing deal involving his garage, which goes by the name of Petrovic Auto and is located in East Los Santos. The two brothers didn't hesitate and took the opportunity right away, opportunity that widely opened the horizons for them. Things started to cosiderately improve and since the garage business worked out so well they also invested time and money into a trucking distribution company and put it alongside under a new label, which was named Instashift Automotives.
Instashift Automotives is a company created by Renato and Xavier Munoz and is a collection of smaller businesses and projects that fall under the same label. This company has a clean record and serves them as a cover/front wall for all the illegal activities they are involved in. Instashift Automotives is also one of the key tools for money laundering, proving in documents the money income from narcotrafficking, weapon distribution and other minor crimes.
Even though this company has a clean record and is a hundred percent legal, the name of the company is also related to another small project they're involved in and is based on a small group of illegal racing drivers who are experienced and very well trained in performing top level heists and goes by the name of 'Nightshift'.
Nightshift is a small crew consisting of a few organisation members who are experienced and very well trained in performing heists at high speeds and not only. They are known for using their high horsepower cars to pull some of the most incredible stunts, giving the cops a hard time chasing them. They usually operate during night when roads are not heavily populated and traffic is at its lowest on the highways, which are the best escape routes since police can't keep up.
The key to succesful heists and robberies is a strong communication between the drivers and the experienced truckers who join them in blocking segments of roads granting the drivers an easy escape. Nightshift crew is also responsible for most of the illegal racings and car meetings which are known for their high stakes and huge prizes for the winners.

Note. More chapters will be added according to the faction development. The thread is still under construction.
Rules and requirements to join
As the time past by, money was no longer an issue for Munoz brothers. But you know how it is, the more money you have, the more you're willing to spend, right? They started driving expensive cars, throwing money on advertisment and promotions, but also investing money in the drugs scene which was obviously the most profitable. When the money hunger started to kick in, nothing stood in front of them from earning more and more money.
This huge step into the criminal world was one of the most influential factor in their lives, as they turned from simple hard working people into the head of a criminal organisation in a span of only a few years. They quickly became known on the black market for distributing some of the most requested drugs such as marijuana, heroin, amphetamine and last but not the least, cocaine.
Instashift Automotives company also played an important role in the organisation as the truck drivers slowly got replaced or became smugglers themselves working to supply the drug warhouses owned by the faction.
In the beginning they started delivering small amounts of drugs hidden in crates but it was not enough for Renato and Xavier who wanted to risk everything. After a few smugglers got arrested and imprisoned, the organisation gained alot of attention from Los Santos Police Department and DEA who tried to shut down the entire network, but they were unsuccesful. The incident was followed by a calm period, because they didn't want to get too exposed. It didn't take long until they restarted the distribution of drugs, but this time the drivers were armed and ready to fight back, granting no mercy to whoever cut their path.
