Miguel Alvarez is one of the most feared and reviled gang members in the Eastern United States. He is ruthless, bloodthirsty, and enjoys it. Miguel was originally from Mexico City. He grew up there the son of a prostitute and an annonymous john. By the age of 8 he was a member of MS-13. He grew in stature and power as he grew in age, eventually taking over part of the operations in Mexico City itself for the heads of the gang. At the age of 19 he was asked to move to Washington and set up a chapter of the gang there. He did so with zeal. Upon arriving in town, along with around 12 of his fellow gang members, Alvarez promptly started a war with the then gang in control of the most wealthy district in town, the Skulls. The Skulls lost badly. Alvarez inflicted such heavy losses on them that they sent one of their leaders to Alvarez to discuss terms of surrender. He came home in a box….several of them. Miguel has continued to gather power to him and to make MS-13 into a named feared and respected on the streets of Washington. The only blemish on an otherwise stellar criminal career comes in the form of a homeless uprising on the borders of his turf. He has sent several squads of enforcers to deal with the issue, some nutjob who calls himself “Emperor Nelson” but any and all members of the gang that go to his claimed area of influence aren’t seen again. Loco gringo’s.
