8th Street Balas
The 8th Street Balas (Spanish for “Bullets”) are a local Mexican independent gang in Thunder City. They occasionally do short stints of mercenary work for the syndicates, mostly gun-running, but largely serve their own interests. Their primary modes of income are drug dealing, theft, and prostitution. Unlike the syndicates, which have frequent ethnic majorities but no official policies on race, the Balas are exclusively Hispanic in membership by design. They take their name for the home street of their three founding members.
They are now defunct. Their leader, Caesar Amaro, has been killed, and their remaining members absorbed into The Suns
