The Magellan Ballas street gang was created out of the intersection of Magellan Avenue and Melanoma Street by Cedric Brice and Russell Broadus in the early 2010s, as a simple drug trafficking crew which eventually evolved into the murderous street gang it is today.
In 2006, Cedric Brice was arrested on charges relating to his involvement in the 2004 Vespucci beach murders of Damian Smith and Daquan Stewart which was seemingly the start of an incline in crime rates involving crimes connected directly to gang violence within Vespucci. He was released in 2016, collaborating with decline of violence and murders in the area.
The Magellan Ballas are known to commit crimes ranging from robbery, theft, grand theft auto, murder, and its infamous and large drug trafficking operations. Common traits of Magellan Ballas gang members are traditional blue, or purple clothing alongside tattoos that resemble members and their ranking, or placing in the gang.
Upon joining, members will agree that any leader of the faction has the ability to CK a member due to whatever in-character reason.
