Biography/ Background

 

Born as an only child in the lower-middle class of society in the city of New Orleans, Bravo Santana grew up a witness to a wide variety of culture. In a town full of people leading different lifestyles ranging from days and memories of struggle and despair to countless afternoons of lavish  luxury and promenades on Canal Street; The city had a way of sculpting him into his personality. Aside from the teachings of faith that his mother instilled into him, and the jaw-clenching spirit of determination that his father passed through gene - the majority of what he learned and the habits that he acquired stemmed from arguably eternal nights in ecstasy, allure, and adrenaline in the jazz fueled streets and nightclubs; followed by days playing a "modern day Casanova", chasing the thrills of lust with both women from the upper class in the French quarters and the less privileged women of the Bayous' alike.

Adulthood was premature for Bravo. The Santana family was met by dismay of his fathers death during an accident at work while aiding disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina (10 years ago). As a result, at the age of eleven (11) Bravo was faced with some of the realities of his parents' marriage and their economic security. It became all too clear that his fathers' presence played a massive role in the union and content of their home. However, after his fathers passing Bravo developed a passionate side of himself. Living a sort of "Carpe Diem" in the city full of entertainment, a few casinos, and a wild nightlife to say the least; he found himself particularly fond of music festival promotion, hosting concerts (sometimes working private security) and ultimately, having parties. However, there was always a sense of drive deep in his heart, something which he believed lived on in himself from his father. It was a longing for greater success..

 

"Catching Up" / Present Day

 

Having been raised by his mother (Rosa) and the help of his Aunt (Moralda), Bravo also developed a keen sense of intimate communication with women. On a daily basis the majority of his companions were exotic dancers, published models, and attractive women of all sorts of races and mixes within the city. This eventually led towards his interest in photography and videography, as well as the music industry. Bravo was instantaneously infatuated with the entertainment business. He found himself quickly overwhelmed with the urge to be "in the mix".

A couple of weeks after celebrating his twenty-first (21st) birthday, Bravo sat down along with his mother and discussed his future and everything he wanted to accomplish in life.

Bravo: Momma, you know I've been thinking bout' going out to the West Coast..?

Mother: *Lets out a sigh* "Listen Mijo, I know where ever you go you'll be successful. You hear me?" *Looks in Bravo's eyes* "Your Papa and I taught you good, and you're all grown up now." *Smiles* "Now, I know you'll make a good decision, and whichever you choose will be right for you. Just pray about it." *Kisses Bravo on the forehead, exiting the kitchen*

The following week, Bravo made an impulsive decision to follow his dreams. He booked a flight to San Fierro, San Andreas - Also popularly known as "The Bay Area". The city was recognized as one of the key locations for both musicians, artists, and businessmen alike. He was certain that beginning his life in the new city would spark opportunity for himself. He vowed that he would work to establish an enterprise great enough to not only sustain himself and his own business ventures, but to also repay his mother for her tremendous gift of life and all that she had ever done for him.

"Touching Down"

After recently arriving in San Fierro, Bravo comes across a job fair in the nearby countryside. He takes up a job as a "Lumberjack", something completely unordinary for someone like himself, however he is in desperate need of the cash. After about a week of working full-time he saves up enough cash to put together a down payment on a rental home not too far away on the West Side of San Fierro (Atwater Avenue). However, Bravo is not satisfied. He spends a day off from work scoping out the neighborhoods and finding himself a potential future home to buy. Additionally, he encounters a couple of new acquaintances (Brandon_Wong & French_West) with whom he discusses potentially getting into the realty business and coming up with future investment plans.

Not to sound rude but I don’t know anyone who uses “mang” in their speech.

 

No Offense Taken, If you peep the guy in my signature (@Curren$y_Spitta) as well as "Wiz Khalifa" Uses the word regularly in both rap verses as well as regular speech (Hence, the New Orleans, Louisiana reference). It's more of a country boy thing though TBH - A lot of people talk like that in my hometown (North Carolina, USA). For example, instead of saying boy a lot of folks say "Bo" (like short for Bojangles 😂)

Preciate it broadie, I might have to set a little time to the side to install the Photoshop, I've actually been using the default "Paint" application on my PC. 😂 I'd like to clean it up for sure, but damn it seems like a bit of work. I'm sure it's a breeze once you get used to it though..

"Keepin' Cool"

Shortly after getting settled into his own room and setting back out into town to do more realty prospecting Bravo comes across an associate (Brandon_Wong) at the Juniper Mall. They "chop it up" in the car as they coast around West San Fierro, taking a good look at some of the different residential communities and discussing the opportunities within the city. The duo end up in a bit of serious conversation, and Bravo finds out that Brandon is essentially without shelter. Being charismatic as usual, Bravo extends an invitation for Brandon to room with him at the apartment. Furthermore, Bravo elaborates on his vision for capitalizing on business in the town.

Later that night, Bravo finds himself a bit confused driving around in the Uptown area of San Fierro. As result, he is pulled over by a police officer. Despite the recent controversy of unarmed colored men being shot during traffic stops Bravo "play's it cool" and "keeps it pimpin". The violation goes smoothly and he pulls off with not much more than a fair warning. So far, it seems like he's doing fairly well at adjusting, the pace of the city is a bit different then down South, but overall he doesn't stand out too much.

"Pimpin' my Ride"

A few days after getting settled into the new city and learning more about his environment Bravo begins to assimilate with the majority of citizens. He develops his daily routine and even spends a bit of time in his old ways, chasing women and shopping for designer clothes at the mall. He notices however, that his prized classic car (Stallion) just seems to look a bit dull. Perhaps it's materialistic, but he feels like the only way to "shine" in the Bay is to ride on big rims, wear gold watches, gold chains and rings. The latter will take time for him to acquire, he knows that there's no point in fake balling - So, he decides to go ahead and make a small investment into himself by upgrading and modifying his car.

 

He turns to "Provenzano Garage", formerly known as "Kenny's Kustomz". He is greeted by various individuals all of whom seem to be of Italian decent. Nonetheless, they treat him as a valued customer and give great service. After going through an estimate and turning over his keys he get's a call back only a few hours later that his vehicle is ready for pick up (Talk about speedy labor!) After arrival, he meets the garage owner, and informs him of his photography hobby. He suggests that if at any time they are interested in a Car Calendar Photoshoot that they be in contact with him. He ends the day by cruising back down Atwater Avenue to his rental apartment and washing the car.

"Makin' a couple moves"

As the weeks in San Fierro continue to progress and Bravo steadily gets acclimated with both the city as well as it's inhabitants things begin to take a bit of a turn for him. Almost like a "new kid on the block" he finds himself getting pressed while on a general visit to the Juniper Mall. The aggressors are unidentified, and it's unknown whether or not they are in affiliation with any gang and if his assault and attempted robbery was a result of turf.

However, as a civilian, Bravo finds himself frustrated with the inability to protect himself after having arrived in the new environment so short a time ago. He finds himself searching through his phone as he remembers conversation he had previously with an acquaintance (French_West) who had been promoting a street race event. He (West) had mentioned his need for someone to enforce security during the gathering.

To make matters worse, out of nowhere he receives a complaint from the property owner of his rental home that he had not been paying rent. In fact, he had wired cash to someone posing as the property manager and had been technically squatting in the home. As a result, he was immediately evicted, however the homeowner (Thomas_Caruso) showed empathy by aiding him with $500 towards rent somewhere else.

After inquiring about how he could possibly "get a favor for a favor" he later finds himself fulfilling a "Job" for West before the event. With no knowledge of the forthcoming heist, he rides along with West and two associates to an undisclosed location. After preparation, it's apparent that his hands wouldn't be clean anymore after this task. The adrenaline pumping heist concludes successfully and he gets a cut for helping out. Furthermore, the associates of West introduce themselves by equipping Bravo with his own "protection" and essentially taking him under wing.

"Getting Jobs Done"

The following week of Bravo's first heist he decided to play it low-key. He hadn't really invested too much of the money from the job that he had completed. However, he knew that soon enough it would run out. For the most part, he was still showing up to his regular day-job. However, he saw all too clearly that the rate of pay just wouldn't suffice his desire for lavish lifestyle and help him create the image that he needed to find success in the city of San Fierro.

Around about 10:30 pm he got a call from one of the associates "Dwayne" who was in on the last heist and supplied Bravo with his own protection asking for a favor. He told him to meet at the train station and that he'd inform him of more later.

It was apparent that another "job" was being planned and there was a spot for Bravo to fill. After meeting and discussing the tasks it puzzled Bravo that the Provenzano garage was being targeted for vandalism. After pondering to himself for a while he assumed that it may have been some sort of retaliation in the aftermath of the shooting on the night of the race hosted by associate "French". However, no facts were disclosed with him and this was complete conspiracy. Bravo went out into the night and broke his way into the garage that was completely empty in the late night hours. Inside, he vandalized and destroyed merchandise, tools, and even documents in the office of the Provenzano garage. The shop remained unorganized into the morning when Bravo barely crept out in time to escape daylight and speed his way back to his apartment complex before getting caught by SFPD or the shop employees.
