In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught.
In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.
-Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

The word around the streets is that the large section of the Russian Mafia tagged only as 'The Angels' by the locals has been moving about the city. Having sat for a while they are now expanding their strength and moved with force into the waterfront displacing some of the local gangs that had claimed the area for some time. The leader known only as 'The Angel' to most for his strange practices has silenced all those who opposed him in the areas and secured footing. Rumors abound about where they are going to move next as their influence and power seems to only expand. Wherever they seem to move the chaos of low level crime seems crushed under foot instead working toward greater things their influence and capital grows in a nature almost fostered by the blind eye of most beat cops looking for thugs causing trouble. The Cajuns were formed in 2014 or so. Most of the core members are refugees from Hurricane Katrina that never returned to Louisiana. They aren't swamprats for the most part, but inner city kids with gang histories. Since forming the Cajuns they've recruited a number of local youths to their cause. Their symbol is a green fleur de lis on a black background.

The Cajuns have mostly been seen around the south shoals. There's a lot of nice stuff down there, but after clashes involving Latino Sub 30 and the F Street Crips, they've had to pick and choose what to hang on to.

Las Hombres was flexing their muscles against Linda Vista 13 for a while, and rumored to be going after the Barbarians MC next, but a major police sting seems to have killed their momentum.
Lazervich Bratva is a new arrival in the city, compared to the Angels. Are they friends, rivals, or something in between?
Linda Vista 13 has feuded with Las Hombres and O'Bannon's Boys. They've always been on the losing end, but they haven't been wiped out. Yet.
The unnamed backers of The Continental refer to themselves as Management, offering it as a neutral meeting place for those smart enough to stay off law enforcement's radar. O'Bannon's Boys appear to be focusing their efforts on the shipping district to the northwest, ceding their presence downtown to the Kearneys. Rumors of a formal union between the two families remain unconfirmed. The Saints have been quietly expanding their domain. They have some powerful backing, even if they aren't flexing that muscle right now. They always walk around strapped. The Ostrovsky Syndicate is a white collar organization with blue collar reputation. They've got a prominent street presence in the northeast, and seem to mostly keep to themselves. They deal drugs, offer protection to local small businesses and rumor has it that they might just run guns from time to time. They were once a Russian Mafia, but have since diversified.
