Los Zacatecas

The Mexican Transnational Criminal Organizations remains the greatest criminal drug threat to the United States. According to Drug-Enforcement-Administration's investigations over the course of several years the Mexican TCOs have expanded their influence to different regions of the United States, showing clear signs of growth and particularly within San Andreas by using highly sophisticated command-and-control structures outside the United States; they produce, transport, and distribute illicit drugs domestically with the assistance of DTOs that are either a part of or in an alliance with the cartels.

Violence has reached unimaginable levels but still, Mexico remains a conservative, deeply traditional, country, with a lot of passion and love. It has the most corrupted politicans in North America. But in the eyes of the world, Mexico, known only for its' massive narcotics industry. On the streets of every major city, the influence of drug money can be seen like for example expensive shops, big fancy houses and in the ridiculous exclusive suburbs. The narcotics business attracts a lot of people, as it's the key to wealth and abundance above everything else. The power of the drug cartels is linked to Mexico. now deeply integrated corruption, and the strong contrasts between rich and poor.

In the huge narcotraffic-war around the late 90s the Gulf Cartel found themselves in a violent turf-war so they lured more than thirty deserters from the elite "Grupo Aeromóvil de Fuerzas Especiales" (GAFE) to become thier loyal mercenary wing. These deserters were enticed with salaries much higher than what they were paid by the military, some of these former GAFE members reportedly received training in commando and urban warfare from the Israeli and U.S. Special Forces — The "Zs" was effective as they won the war on the streets, once the Gulf Cartel consolidated thier power, they expanded the responsibilities of Los Zetas. After sereval members of the Gulf Cartel witnessed their power-growing more and more in the federation they marked them as a threat. Upon the arrest of Guillen in March 2003 and his extradition to US in 2007, the Zetas took a more active leadership role within the Gulf Cartel thus their influence grew within the organization.

Los Zetas turned out to be extremely powerful to the point they outnumbered and outclassed the Gulf Cartel in revenue, membership, and influence. As a result of this imbalance, the Gulf Cartel tried to curtail their own enforcers' influence and ended up instigating a civil war. A whole lot of turfs had been taken by the Los Zetas Cartel in the huge civil war that erupted against their old leaders. After their impressive impact in the narco-economy it didn't last long before they took over states near the borders from the Gulf Cartel. Controlling borders changed their infulence in the political atmosphere within Mexico as they have a long range of network (corrupted politicians) their infulence was unstoppable. Analysts indicate that Los Zetas are the largest organized crime group in Mexico in terms of geographical presence. They are primarily based in the border region of Nuevo Laredo and Coahuila with hundreds more throughout the country. They have placed lookouts at arrival destinations such as airports, bus stations and main roads. In addition to conducting criminal activities along the border, they operate throughout the Gulf of Mexico, and the Zacatecas state. In the southern states of Tabasco, Yucatán, Quintana Roo, and Chiapas, and in the Pacific Coast states of Guerrero, Oaxaca, and Michoacán, as well as in Mexico City.

Los Zetas, with its origin in the Gulf Cartel, had experienced few instances of infighting within the cartel compared to its parent organization. However, as several leaders of Los Zetas were arrested and extradited to the US, the cartel became more unstable and struggles for power within the organization or over different geographical areas increased. August 2012, a U.S. law enforcement official told the press that Miguel Treviño Morales, the former second-in-command of Los Zetas, had reportedly taken the leadership of the cartel and displaced Lazcano, the long-time leader. Due to his violent and confrontational personality, Treviño Morales began the process of taking over the assets of Los Zetas and removing Lazcano in early 2010. At the beginning, Lazcano was happy to have a man like Treviño Morales in his ranks, but he reportedly underestimated him and gave him too much power. The active role of Treviño Morales got him the loyalty and respect of many in Los Zetas, and eventually many stopped paying loyalty to Lazcano. Personality-wise, Treviño Morales and Lazcano are opposing figures; Treviño Morales tended to prefer violence, while Lazcano was a lot steadier, and preferred to keep his organization as a stable group. Lazcano reportedly wanted Los Zetas to be less of a problem for the next political administration of Enrique Peña Nieto; in contrast, "Treviño Morales was someone who wanted to fight the fight." Los Zetas are inherently an unstable organized crime group with a long history of brutal violence, with the possibility of constant internal crisis if the organization exists without its central command.

The two Los Zetas factions, the Cártel del Noreste faction, and the Old School Zetas faction, got involved in a deadly fight for the control over territory and drug trade in Ciudad Victoria, the capital of Tamaulipas state, in the beginning of 2016. One of the most common methods for the factions to use in their fight against each other was to leave the mutilated and decapitated bodies of their opponents on the streets of Ciudad Victoria alongside with threatening messages, so-called narcomantas. The non-state conflict between Los Zetas – Cártel del Noreste faction and Los Zetas – Old School Zetas faction was first included in UCDP data in 2016. In July that year, fighting between the two factions for the control of Ciudad Victoria city resulted in more than 25 battle-related deaths. In February 9, 2018 "Vieja Escuela" faction (therefore, the original group of Los Zetas) was completely dismantled with the capture, of José María Guizar Valencia , alias Z-43 , in Mexico City as a result of it Los Zetas Cartel ceased to exist as whole and are divided to independent cartel cells that only took a bit of the Los Zetas culture and are limited on controlling territories and not allied to one another, the fractions that are confidently known to the media: Cartel de Noreste, Los Talibanes, Cartel de La Laguna, Los Dorados, Grupo Operativo Zetas, Fuerzas Especiales Zetas, Los Taxes, Cartel de San Luis Potosi Nueva Generation,Cartel de Los Alemanes, Los Zacatecas.

Los Zacatecas is a fraction of Los Zetas Cartel, spawned, by the dismantle of the "Vieja Escula" faction
Los Zacatecas aka Cartel de Zacatecas heired the Los Zetas culture and are specified on drug trafficking, human trafficking, weapons trafficking, murder, torture, rape, kidnapping, racketeering, extortion, ransom, video piracy; they produce, transport, and distribute illicit drugs domestically with the assistance of DTOs that are either a part of, or in, an alliance with the cartel. Cartel de Zacatecas is the new uprising threat in states, outspreading their rein within cliques. It is said that Los Zacatecas asserted deep roots in Los Santos' criminal world, assembled close connections with well known notorious mobs inside of the San Andreas. Moreover, multiple shady characters has been spotted around Los Santos with matched tattoos, the informants confirmed that there most likely already sereval gangs being controlled by the Zacatecas. Their Influence and appearance begins to grow further particularly in the valley of East Los Santos.

This faction represents parts of our previous development as "Reyes de Las Colinas" and the continuation of that. Our concept is based upon extensive researches about the Mexican Transnational Criminal Organizations and their ways of operation so we present you a realistic environment to the best of our ability.


For your knowledge Los Zetas Cartel (Vieja Escuela faction) dismantled after the capture of José María Guizar Valencia , alias Z-43 , in Mexico City. It should be stressed that Los Zetas Cartel ceased to exist as whole and are divided to independent cartel cells that only adapted a pinch of the original Los Zetas culture. For all we know, the fractions are limited on controlling territories not necessarily allied to one another. Fractions that are confidently known to the media: Cartel de Noreste, Los Talibanes, Cartel de La Laguna, Los Dorados, Grupo Operativo Zetas, Fuerzas Especiales Zetas, Los Taxes, Cartel de San Luis Potosi Nueva Generation, Cartel de Los Alemanes. In our story Los Zacatecas is a fictional fraction of Los Zetas Cartel, spawned, by the dismantle of the "Vieja Escula" faction, heired, the Los Zetas culture and are specified on drug trafficking, human trafficking, weapons trafficking, murder, torture, rape, kidnapping, racketeering, extortion, ransom, video piracy; they produce, transport, and distribute illicit drugs domestically with the assistance of DTOs that are either a part of, or in, an alliance with the cartel.

Roleplaying as a cartel member is nothing like any other faction that you may have roleplayed with in the past. The closest roleplay style would be as of a 'mafia' type of faction. We would also like to remind players, that their mentality cannot be of being a drug lord since day one. As everyone knows, any sort of faction demands their members to start slowly and from the bottom. This means that you can't expect to be treated like a full member right away. Gangs for example, usually require their outsiders to roleplay as "peewees" or characters from a certain age. Mafias, on the other hand, regularly ask their members to roleplay as associates willing to get into the crew by being loyal and good earners. These procedures also let the faction leaders analyze the roleplay skills of each member. Therefore, we are trying to come up with ways which could let the people get in touch with us by using a network of legal fronts. We suggest that if you are interested in roleplaying with the faction, create a character that fits the description of the type of person that we would get to employ.

All recruitments are done totally In Character. We know that it is difficult to interact with us as new character/player, the explanation behind that is because we don't hang in one single spot. Our teams are spread across throughout San Andreas. However, our headquarters are settled in Las Colinas and is free for anyone to participate. Any potential roleplay there could lead to an entry to the faction.

Image We use discord as our private forums and this is strict for OOC communication, feel free to join our server click here.

Image Questions, complaints and suggestions can be directed to Lightz via PMs.

Image The faction offers "Mojado" roleplay to players who wish to roleplay their character to be smuggled in San Andreas from Mexico — The procedure can now be fully RPed instead of NPC'ing. If you're interested, fill and send the following format to Lightz via forum PMs.

Image
Character name: TEXT

Character age: TEXT

How did your character get in contact with the human traffickers?: TEXT

IMPORTANT:
This service is not oriented into the smuggling of cartel members, your character would be in no way affiliated to the faction via this option of character start. The human traffickers are NPC'd, therefore you can role-play your own story on how you met them. The faction members would be ready to transport your character into Los Santos after you were RP'ly prepared to be smuggled into the country close to the border.

The information you put in the format will obviously be known to the cartel, you don't need to add anything other than what is required. Choosing to do this does not make your character in anyway affiliated to the faction, it is merely a service provided to players who would like an alternative way to role-play their characters' arrival into the state. The price to be smuggled into Los Santos would have been half paid in Mexico, the other half would be paid to the smugglers when you meet them at the location IG. The charge of the operation is $5,000 for the provided service.
