Today I set out for Los Santos. I leave behind our family home in Europe to chase demons and ghosts in my past.
I am ending this as the last page in my diary, and thus, to recap::
Mother died under suspicious circumstances shortly after her best friend was killed by her husband.
My stepfather left to go back to Los Santos - and I am following him because I want answers. (At least that is what I tell myself)
Bell Thorn - Bell Mulder
Was a good women who went through a lot with my father. She was ostrasized because of her job as an EMS and lived in poverty in Sandyshores during a messy divorce. My mother was dedicated to her work - even when she worked at Humane Labs with my father.
But my mother kept many secrets ... Secrets I feel is important if I ever want to know what happened to her after Mia's death - and perhaps a few more about Mia's life.
Miabelle Storm - Stanbridge.
I was only little, when Miabelle (my Godmother) would show up to babysit for days on end. Mia was like a mother to me and my babysister; she was a rolemodel. I watched her study for her laywer exam and fight for the DOC where she took up a job. Sometimes my mother would spend hours on the phone catching up, and relating stories of Mia's adventures to us. She truly was our Mamma_Mia even after she met her Tony.
When Mia married Tony, (criminal who became a judge of Los Santos), we couldn't make it to the wedding but I remember so well how beautiful she was and how happy my mother was for them. We made a scrapbook of the wedding pictures, and Mom told me about everyone there. She knew them all because of her job - The same place she met Dr. Fox Mulder.
When my mother met Fox Mulder, I wasn't sure about their union. In fact, he was a strange sort. My mother told me about his 'non-proposal' and how he practically assumed she will marry him. Which she did; although sometimes I didn't quite understand why. But Fox Mulder did one good thing for our family - He brought us back together. He brought my mother home to us! Not only that, he (somehow) put my father in a fearful possition after which 'Daddy-Dear' left us alone.
My babysister and I learned to love Fox - he was a genuinely caring person, a great Doctor and a father figure when we needed it most.
But both our Mothers died and my babysister took the news badly. She set out to Los Santos to confront John Smith - Mia's closest friend and confidant (besides our mother) and confront Fox about our mother Bell's death and why he left us.
I've not seen my sister, nor my stepfather in nearly a year ... I am no closer to answers than before and I miss my sister.
It is time I take a leaf from the books of two women who raised me well.
My name is

@BagOBrix Only certain houses has interiors. Many (if not all) homes that is currently feasible for RP, Storage, Garage Storage etc - has circles for players to buy. This gives you unlimited storage access for just about everything (Money & weapons included) in the house, as well as the garage. Some houses has interiors (the main properties of chracters such as Frankie's Aunt's house) but not all them. What you see is what you get. Hope this helps |Rocket
Triad, a China-based criminal organization, secret association or club, was a branch of the secret Hung Society. The society was fragmented, and one group (known as the Triad and the Ching Gang) became a criminal organization. After the People's Republic of China was founded in 1949, secret societies in mainland China were suppressed in campaigns ordered by Mao Zedong. Most Chinese secret societies, including the triads and some of the remaining Ching Gang, relocated to British-controlled Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast Asia and overseas countries (particularly the US) and competed with the Tong and other Chinese secret societies. Gradually, Chinese secret societies turned to drugs and extortion for income.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, "triad" is a translation of the Chinese term San Ho Hui (or Triple Union Society), referring to the union of heaven, earth and humanity. Another theory posits that the word "triad" was coined by British authorities in colonial Hong Kong as a reference to the triads' use of triangular imagery It has been speculated that triad organizations took after, or were originally part of, revolutionary movements such as the White Lotus, the Taiping and Boxer Rebellions and the Heaven and Earth Society.
The generic use of the word "triads" for all Chinese criminal organizations is imprecise; triad groups are geographically, ethnically, culturally and structurally unique. "Triads" are traditional organized-crime groups originating from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Criminal organizations operating in, or originating from, mainland China are "mainland Chinese criminal groups" or "black societies". After years of repression, only some elements of triad groups are involved with illegal activities. Triads in Hong Kong are less involved with "traditional" criminal activity and are becoming associated with white-collar crime; traditional initiation ceremonies rarely take place to avoid official attention.
Triads are also active in other regions with significant overseas-Chinese populations: Macau, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Brazil, Peru and Argentina. They are often involved in migrant smuggling.
Shanty and Mishra (2007) estimate that the annual profit from narcotics is $200 billion, and annual revenues from human trafficking into Europe and the United States are believed to amount to $3.5 billion.
Rebel Kali (now Sin) - “Red Pole”
Father: Bentong Kali
Bentong Kali was born to a Malaysian Indian family in Bentong, Pahang as one of eleven children. A notorious Malaysian gangster implicated during 1990’s in 17 different murders; terrorized the capital through violence, extortion and heroin smuggling. He was gunned down by special forces.
After the death of her father, Rebel was adopted by an ‘All American’ family. Rebel’s life took a turn for the worst when she became involved with an America Malaysian gangs (Wah Kee) at an early age. Between the ages of 12 and 15, Rebel was a ‘runner’ - she moved drugs between older members, sell drugs in the streets, arrange street deals, stay in 'trap' houses where drugs are sold or made. Staying ‘clean’ herself, Rebel moved up the ranks and soon became a ‘Younger’. This gave her partial authority over the ‘runners’ and ‘shotters’. Rebel was never implicated in crimes, as she always made sure to ‘subcontract’ her jobs and/or manipulate the youngers and shotters to do the dirty work for her.
With connections to the Triads through her affiliated gang, Rebel moved to Los Santos in hopes to hide out in the shadows. This is when she got caught up in a shootout between local gangs as a Civilian. With only one person aiding the downed people, Rebel did her best to assist the gentleman, but had to run the moment Police arrived.
After their first encounter, Daði and Rebel met months later again. Daði responded to a 911 call as a Fire Paramedic on the AMR team. What he found was Rebel, this time as the injured party. Knowing more of the gangs and cultures of Los Santos, Daði keeps track of Rebel’s recovery and eventually had the opportunity to question her about her own affiliations.
It was during this time the two not only formed a great friendship, but also discovered a darker connection: Associations with the TRIADS.
Whilst Daði’s family was far more involved in White Collar (Business) Crimes to which he was an heir, Rebel’s involvement was far more ‘on the ground’.
Over time, their friendship turned romantic and Rebel joined the AMR team as well. This allowed her to remain in the shadows and out of the crime-rings as they stand in Los Santos.
It was only after a party at the Vanilla Unicorn, when Daði and Rebel were accosted by an operating gang in the immediate vicinity. Daði was incapacitated and robbed, while Rebel was threatened with ‘more than death’. Rebel lost her temper and reverted to the one thing she knew how to do: Get rid of the problem - she killed the assailants without remorse.
After Daði recovery, the couple got married and started working on a plan to pool their resources, stay on the right side of the law but reclaim their ‘rightful’ place as ‘Dragons’ in the Crime world.
They formed the New Righteousness Sin Lóng Commercial and Industrial Guild.
With the approval of their Elders in the Crime families, Daði’s and Rebel Sin based their entire code of conduct on a play of Daði’s last name, using the seven deadly SINS. Yet, they still honour both their Triad connections and traditions by keeping to the hierarchy and sentiments of the Original Syndiction.
Moving Forward ...
Ending the lives of a character is not easy. Sometimes it isn't even a decision that has been made - but this one?
We have agreed a while back already that these two must go. Naturally their love for each other is and will never be in question - in fact, through everything in their entire creation, that was one constant without any shaky grounds:
Tony & Mia met ten months ago and had been inseparable since. Like any couple, they've had their arguments and fights, their ugly side and bag-upon-bag of salt.
The fact that Tony shot Mia, and then himself, is testimony to the agreement their love and understanding of each other.
Now the question of a future?
Well, some time ago, Tony took Mia to the Labs. There, something happened that Mia herself barely understood (actually, she had no idea).
Tony was rambling on about trust, love and cryo-somethings.
Was their DNA preserved? What did Tony do? Was there a child that Mia wasn't aware of?
WHAT HAPPENED that day??
Only time will tell - because the truth of the matter is that neither Tony, nor Mia, can.
