-The loyalty of those under his command. Personality:
Ramon Reyes has earned the reputation of being an overtly cruel and wicked man. Like many of his fellow gang-mates, the bandito has no qualms or hesitancy in performing heinous acts in the name of the gang or greed such as murder or robbery. The Del Lobo lieutenant has been rumored to taunt and even play with his victims, drawing out their inevitable demise. His short fuse is simply undeniable as well. He has a tendency to escalate to violence in situations that probably don’t call for it. Perhaps, he takes pride in his ability to pad a body count.
While Reyes can be classified as a wild card, his loyalty to the gang is obvious. When he’s given an order, he ensures that it’s done with no questions done. When someone wrongs the gang, he ensures that said person pays. No questions asked. He’s also been rumored to treat the men under his command with decency, throwing celebrations and what not after successful jobs. After all, he wants to keep their loyalty intact.
Reyes has notoriously been said to have an enormous ego, taking pride in the fact that he’s feared throughout New Austin. He believes that he has a reputation that must constantly be kept, resulting in his immense activity. So, Ramon Reyes could be said to have a strong work ethic for a murderous outlaw!History:
Born in the province of Chuparosa, Mexico, Ramon Reyes had been exposed to the unfairness of life at a fairly young age. His mother died of the deadly scarlet fever when Ramon was a young boy, leaving a nasty toll on his family. This even lead to his father becoming a deadbeat and abusive drunk. Entering survival mode at such a young age, one would definitely classify young Ramon’s life as rough. As he grew older, it was only natural for the boy to seek guidance of sorts. He took to the dangerous streets of Chuparosa, taking to one of the various petty gangs that roamed the streets. At the age of just fourteen, Ramon Reyes had been exposed to the lovely world of crime.
Partaking in various forms of crime, Reyes seemingly found his calling. The rush of stealing and running from the authorities while learning to use firearms was thrilling to say the least. At this point, it seemed like there was no turning back. Who’d trade in this new bond of friendship with his gang mates for his drunk father. Definitely not Ramon Reyes. The young Mexican had become popular amongst his kin, showing glimpses of the ambition that’d take far in life. If someone had to be shot, Ramon shot them. If someone had to be robbed, Ramon robbed it. So it goes. It wasn’t long before the outlaw had a small following.
Years passed, with Ramon beginning to make a name for himself across Chuparosa. Although, the passage of time meant one more thing. That bounty on Ramon Reyes’s head grew quite a bit. At first, it was nothing Reyes and the boys couldn’t handle, but as his murderous rampage grew...dire measures needed to be taken. It wasn’t long before the government sent the army to deal with the threat. After all, a roaming band of raiders pillaging small villages on the countryside wasn’t ideal.
The military’s pressure proved to be too much after years of attempting to hold. Ramon and his gang shrunk in numbers with their influence dissapaiting mightily. It was becoming increasingly more clear that perhaps, Mexico was no longer a good playing ground for the shenanigans of a bandit. It was soon after that Ramon Reyes came in contact with a man by the name of Esteban Cortez. This Cortez fella’ told Reyes of the land up north; the United States of America. Speak of a largely unconquered land inspired the bandito. He could roam once more and pillage as he pleased. Well, that was the goal. Reyes, was drawn by this man’s vision and charisma. It was an easy decision for Reyes. All it took was one raft ride up the river before he found himself in unknown territory under a new banner.
The Del Lobo Gang.
A gang composed of various outcasts, outlaws, and exiles from south of the border, Reyes found himself surrounded by like-minded individuals. Not to mention, he didn’t have anybody breathing down his neck. The Del Lobo Gang was fairly splintered with infighting being a common occurrence and loyalty not being a common sight. Although, as long as you paid your dues, you’d be fine. This was something Reyes easily abided by. It didn’t take long for Ramon Reyes to climb up the ranks of the gang and eventually being awarded with more responsibility and perks. His exploits often spoke for themselves. Whether it be raiding the “cursed” town of Armadillo, or performing various stagecoach robberies, it mattered not. Reyes, was one of the gang’s best assets.
To this day, Ramon Reyes continues to ride across New Austin, spreading carnage wherever he goes. The real question to ask is...who will stop him? That $90 bounty on his head is sure to interest someone. Do you have a personal story arc prepared:
