Where it started
Growing up in his fathers shadow, Noah was held to very high standards while growing up. His father kept him sheltered away from what was going on around him. He kept Noah focused on school and tried to make Noah a better person than himself. This did not last though. Noah was a trouble maker from a very young age. He would break into homes and steal peoples stuff. He would bully kids at school for being disrespectful little assholes. At age 11, he and his friend took knives and robbed their first person in an alleyway. As Noah got older, he started noticing different things going on around. Stuff that was way worse than what he was doing. He noticed how his father was always on his phone and having to leave at any part of the day or night to go into "Work." When Noah was 13 years old, he followed his father through the rain to see where he kept going. He followed him to the port where a boat was coming in. Noah observed his father and 7 other men hastily unload the boat and put the crates into big SUV cars. Noah turns around from where he is hiding and sees 2 security officers with their lights walk up to Noah and start yelling at him. 2 gun shots ring through the air. 2 Bodies his the floor. Jack Russo, his father, looking over Noah stares at him until 1 of the security officers starts reaching for his radio to call in backup. Jack Russo kicks the security officer and takes the radio and hands 12 year old Noah a Pistol.
"You're already deep into this now kid. Might as well see if you got what it takes."
Noah not wanting to disappoint his father, lifts the gun, and pulls the trigger. *Blank* Jack takes the gun out of Noah's hand, throws it into a car and shoots the security officer himself.
After the previous events, Noah was introduced to his fathers line of work. That line of work was running a crime syndicate. Noah was taken out of public school and was given private lessons. All while this is happening, Jack is showing Noah what is right and what is wrong.
"Nobody is above you Noah, why let nobodies tell you what to do or question you? Put disrespectful people in their place. You do it correctly, they will never disrespect you again."
Noah follows in his fathers footsteps eager to actively start helping and learning about what exactly it is that they do. Noah studied how to do thing the correct way.
"Why learn from your failures? Just don't be a dumb ass and do things right the first time"
Noah wanting to be very close, steals a gun and sets off as he wants to prove himself. He heads to the next town over from Charleston South Carolina. Summer vile.
When going around Summer Vile, Noah runs into trouble. Rival Gun Dealers. 3 of them. They approach 14 year old Noah asking what hes doing in this part of town and try to recruit him to their gang. Noah without saying a word, fires off his entire mag into 2 of the 3 guys killing both of them with the third one running away for cover and calling for help
"What the Fuck! This little kid just killed Julian and Omar. Kill this little shithead! Chase his ass down!"
Noah runs back to Charleston being followed the entire way home. That night, was a shipment night for The Syndicate. Noah being forced to stay home because of the trouble he had caused, was not there for this shipment. Automatic gun fire rings out across the town towards the docks. Noah having a bad feeling runs to the docks where he sees dead bodies. Syndicate Bodies, Summer Vile Gang Bodies. There are automatic weapons. As Noah approaches he is stopped by police officers that ask if hes lost. Noah doesn't respond. Police are investigating the scene and start loading bodies into the ambulance. The last body loaded is Jack Russo.
Tears would fall from Noah's eyes realizing that this was his fault
A Envelope would fall from his fathers Trench coat pocket, un-noticed by anyone. Noah grabs the envelope and opens it.
A Letter would be found
"My dearest son Noah,
"Everyday is closer to my last. Its this creeping feeling that I have. It seems as though I am closer to the end than I am the beginning. I have spent my entire life dedicated to making sure that your life would be secure Noah. I didn't want you to be involved with The Syndicate. Somewhere deep down, when you were born, I knew that you would be clever and I knew you would figure it out soon enough how this corrupt and evil world works. My life work has gone into this syndicate. I wasn't able to finish the work. You need to finish what I started. When my end comes, you will be the leader of The Syndicate. Guide these people, my people, they are your people now. They will follow what you say no questions asked. Use them. They are your family. If they are more of a liability than a asset. Take care of the problem. And remember ... The Syndicate is always first above everyone else
Taking over and Moving
After a few weeks since the Incident, its time to start packing up. Noah becoming the new leader of The Syndicate at only the age of 14, needed guidance.Many of the remaining Syndicate would take their chances at leaving as they felt that there was no hope for the group. The few that remained loyal moved with Noah to Chernarus to continue their business. They start importing their weapons into Chernarus and business is going amazing and at about a year in, the outbreak happens.
