'''The Families''' is an African-American street gang in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. [[Franklin Clinton|Franklin]], one of the [[Grand theft auto 5|game's]] main [[Franklin|protagonists]] is associated with the gang. The Families hold a bitter rivalry with the [[Ballas (HD Universe)|Ballas]] gang and the Los Santos Vagos gang on the southeast side in Rancho. Their signature green attire comes from support of the colours of the [[Los Santos Corkers Baseball Team]] and the [[Feud Baseball Team]], as well as the [[Magnetics|San Andreas Magnetics]] as seen by Lamar's general attires. Due to this they are collectively self-referring as Gang-Green.

Not much is known about what happened to them, but [[Franklin Clinton]] and [[Lamar Davis]] during [[Hood Safari]] speculate what was left of them moved away from Grove Street and Los Santos to live better lives than being a set of the Families.

==Sets==
  +
There are at least four distinct sets of the Families in Grand Theft Auto V.
  +
*Chamberlain Gangster Families (CGF):
  +
The Chamberlain Gangster Families are the largest set. Their territory consists of the entire [[Chamberlain Hills]] neighborhood. They are also referred to as "The Hills" or "Killer Hills". Members of this set often sport attire with the letter "C" for Chamberlain, which also stands for "[[Los Santos Corkers Baseball Team|Corkers]]", the baseball team supported by the gang. They hang around the [[Crystal Heights]] project buildings. It is possible, that Chamberlain Gangster Families is also called "26 Set", because this tag can often be seen near other set's tags.
  +
*Forum Gangsters (FG):
  +
Their territory consists of [[Forum Drive]], [[Strawberry]]. It is a small sub-set of the CGF mostly consisting of Franklin and Lamar, due to their frustration with the CGF's OG's not caring about the other members of The Families. This can be heard in conversations between Franklin, Lamar, and Stretch during the missions [[Chop (mission)|Chop]] and [[The Long Stretch]]. During the friendship activity Franklin also reveals, that the whole idea of creating Forum Drive sub-set is denial of numbers of oldschool gangsta traditions, such as flipping signs, maddoging and shooting brothers just for wearing clothes of different colors. Franklin says, that he's just interested in money and it looks like, that talking about creating their own set in The Families is more like his first project to earn some. Lamar, on the other side, still respects traditions and calls them "reality".
  +
*Carson Avenue Families (CAF):
  +
At war with the Chamberlain Gangsters. Their territory consists of the [[Strawberry]] section of [[Carson Avenue]].
  +
*Davis Neighborhoods Families Gang (DNFG):
  +
As the name implies, the gang's territory was originally in [[Davis]], but in [[2013]] it belongs to the [[Ballas]]. Due to this they can mostly be seen in [[Chamberlain Hills]]. Unlike the rest of The Families, members of the set don't wear green attire; they prefer white, grey, and black sport clothes with the the word "Davis" on the back, or two D's on the front, which stands for [[Dust Devils]] - a local hockey team. Sometimes, when starting a fight with someone from the set, they can be heard screaming: "Davis Gang, bitch!" or "DNFG".
  +
*Grove Street Families (GSF) <small>(formerly)</small>:
  +
Their territory consisted of [[Grove Street (HD Universe)|Grove Street]]. It is stated by [[Lamar Davis|Lamar]] that the OGs of this set eventually moved on with their lives and abandoned the gangbanging lifestyle, possibly to become rich CEOs. At some point the [[Ballas (HD Universe)|Ballas]] took over Grove Street. Grove Street Families seems to be the most famous and legendary set of all, since [[Jimmy De Santa]] asks [[Franklin]] during friendship activities, if he is from Grove Street or is Grove Street just a myth. Franklin answers, that this is not a myth, but it is not the beginning of nineties either, referencing to possibilty of events, similar to events of [[GTA San Andreas]] in [[1992]].

*The Chamberlain Gangsters, [[Carson Avenue|Carson Ave]], and the [[Forum Drive]] Sets are probably distinct sets, similar to how the [[Temple Drive Families]] and the [[Seville Boulevard Families]] were in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]].

*The Families own their unique bright green and black coloured and highly modified versions of their gang cars. They can usually be found parked beside sidewalks or rarely driving around Chamberlain Hills and Strawberry (especially in Forum Drive).

SetsEdit

There are at least four distinct sets of the Families in Grand Theft Auto V.

  • Chamberlain Gangster Families (CGF):

The Chamberlain Gangster Families are the largest set. Their territory consists of the entire Chamberlain Hills neighborhood. They are also referred to as "The Hills" or "Killer Hills". Members of this set often sport attire with the letter "C" for Chamberlain, which also stands for "Corkers", the baseball team supported by the gang. They hang around the Crystal Heights project buildings. It is possible, that Chamberlain Gangster Families is also called "26 Set", because this tag can often be seen near other set's tags.

  • Forum Gangsters (FG):

Their territory consists of Forum Drive, Strawberry. It is a small sub-set of the CGF mostly consisting of Franklin and Lamar, due to their frustration with the CGF's OG's not caring about the other members of The Families. This can be heard in conversations between Franklin, Lamar, and Stretch during the missions Chop and The Long Stretch. During the friendship activity Franklin also reveals, that the whole idea of creating Forum Drive sub-set is denial of numbers of oldschool gangsta traditions, such as flipping signs, maddoging and shooting brothers just for wearing clothes of different colors. Franklin says, that he's just interested in money and it looks like, that talking about creating their own set in The Families is more like his first project to earn some. Lamar, on the other side, still respects traditions and calls them "reality".

  • Carson Avenue Families (CAF):

At war with the Chamberlain Gangsters. Their territory consists of the Strawberry section of Carson Avenue.

  • Davis Neighborhoods Families Gang (DNFG):

As the name implies, the gang's territory was originally in Davis, but in 2013 it belongs to the Ballas. Due to this they can mostly be seen in Chamberlain Hills. Unlike the rest of The Families, members of the set don't wear green attire; they prefer white, grey, and black sport clothes with the the word "Davis" on the back, or two D's on the front, which stands for Dust Devils - a local hockey team. Sometimes, when starting a fight with someone from the set, they can be heard screaming: "Davis Gang, bitch!" or "DNFG".

  • Grove Street Families (GSF) (formerly):

Their territory consisted of Grove Street. It is stated by Lamar that the OGs of this set eventually moved on with their lives and abandoned the gangbanging lifestyle, possibly to become rich CEOs. At some point the Ballas took over Grove Street. Grove Street Families seems to be the most famous and legendary set of all, since Jimmy De Santa asks Franklin during friendship activities, if he is from Grove Street or is Grove Street just a myth. Franklin answers, that this is not a myth, but it is not the beginning of nineties either, referencing to possibilty of events, similar to events of GTA San Andreas in 1992.
