Vagos is mainly involved in drug trafficking, but is also involved in various criminal activities such as arms trafficking, prostitution and extortion. Despite their highly erratic and criminal behavior, Libras are incredibly loyal to each other and adhere to a strict code of brotherhood. Throughout the GTA universe, they are known for their dangerous rivalry with other gangs such as the Grove Street Families and the Ballas. These violent feuds often escalate into public shootings, causing damage and endangering the environment. However, their powerful presence and resilience make them formidable opponents and key players in the exciting world of Grand Theft Auto.
The founders of the gang emigrated to the United States in search of a life free from the violence and poverty of their homeland. But they found the streets of Los Santos equally hostile, so they formed a gang to protect themselves. Thus was born the Wags, who fiercely defended their turf against other rival gangs such as the Ballas and the Grove Street families.
Vaga's rise to power is a story of shrewd strategy and ruthless violence. They used their connections in Mexico to set up a drug trafficking network. It turned out to be incredibly profitable, allowing the Vagos to accumulate wealth and expand their business. As their power grew, so did their list of enemies. A bloody decade-long gang war with the Aztecs, another Spanish gang, is clear evidence of their relentless pursuit of supremacy.
Many leaders rose and fell during these tumultuous years, each of whom left an indelible mark on Vaga history. Prospective members are inducted into the gang through a grim "jumping" ritual performed as a test of loyalty and bravery.
In recent years, Vagos have added robbery and cybercrime to their repertoire, indicating a shift to more sophisticated forms of crime. Their story is a clear example of the vicious cycle of poverty and crime and shows the dark underbelly of Los Santos street culture. Despite ongoing law enforcement efforts, the Vagos remain a major force in the GTA's underworld.
Ironically, the Vagos are in fierce competition with the neighboring Grove Street Families, who, despite their less extensive territorial claims, are a deep point of contention, leading to various gang conflicts and violence.
A cacophony of Latin American music fills the streets of Vago Patrol, punctuated by the distant sound of sirens or gunshots. Like the menacing Yellow Tide, Vaga members can often be seen on the streets keeping an eye on rivals.
The neighborhoods they occupy are full of dilapidated houses and dilapidated businesses, reflecting the socio-economic hardships in these regions and the thriving gang lifestyle there. However, despite the prevalence of crime and filth, life goes on with street vendors and ordinary people struggling to live their daily lives amidst the tension.
It's the heart of Vagos, a testament to the survival of the fittest culture that reigns supreme in the uncompromising urban jungle landscape of Los Santos.
