Julius Little was a man who grew up in Sunnyvale Gardens together with his best friend Benjamin King. After the Carnales, led by Alejandro Lopez came to Stilwater, took over the city and 'abused' Sunnyvale Gardens, Benjamin called all the people of Sunnyvale, including Julius, together and started a revolt against the Carnales. This gang would be known as the Vice Kings. However, Julius didn't like the way the Vice Kings worked and dropped his flags.  After the Westside Rollerz were formed and the district to where Julius fled, Saints Row, was made as a battlefield for the three gangs, Julius gathered all the people he could find to the old Church on 3rd Street .
- "Founded by Julius Little, the Third Street Saints operated out of a tiny district in Stilwater called [Saint's Row]. Their operation was small, but their dreams were big…"

With the Syndicate in full control of Stilwater, the Saints relocate themselves to the city of Steelport. Steelport is a city that was created as factories flourished with little city planning, and since has suffered from economic failure[reference?], contrasting the glamour of Stilwater. The Syndicate has already begun to take control of some parts of Steelport, focusing on vices like gambling and prostitution. To extend their reach, the Syndicate had divided their control of the city through three gangs. The Morningstar, led by Loren directly, are typically European men with impeccable taste, selling guns and handling the prostitution rings.[reference?] The pro wrestler Killbane controls the Luchadores who deal with selling steroid drugs and gambling.[reference?] The Deckers, led by teenage hacktivist Matt Miller, are computer geniuses, and handle the money laundering.[reference?] The Saints see the opportunity to take control of Steelport from these groups, and engage them to start to take control of the downtrodden city.[reference?] As the gang war intensifies, a fourth group, the Special Tactical Anti-Gang (STAG) Unit from the government will attempt to halt any gang activity whether it be the Saints or the Syndicate.
The Saints started their recruiting process and recruited four new lieutenants: Zimos, the oldest pimp in Steelport, Angel De La Muerte, an ex tag-team wrestler, Kinzie Kensington, an ex-FBI intelligence agent, and Oleg Kirrlov, an 8-foot giant who is the template of the Brute clones[reference?] and enjoys playing Chess.[reference?]

- Instead of purple, the 3rd Street Saints' color was originally planned to be green.
- This was explained further by one of the writers of the Saints Row series, Steve Jaros, in a livestream interview with Destructoid one week prior to Saints Row: The Third's release: during development of Saints Row, Rockstar Games released their reveal trailer for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and because Volition, Inc. did not want to be compared to them (the main gang of San Andreas, the Grove Street Families, wore the color green), they changed the color of the 3rd Street Saints.
- The first Saints were former Vice Kings that were led by Julius Little.
- In the early days of Stilwater, “Saints Row” was actually filled with churches. Property renovation removed all but the one used by the Saints.
Saints Row 2
- In Saints Row 2, the 3rd Street Saints cannot take control of the Saint's Row, Stilwater Prison, Nuclear Power Plant Districts, or Mount Claflin.
- The Saints are continueously underestimated by rival gangs, to the point of that they are thought to be harmless and easy to destroy. The only gang to have immediate knowledge of the fact this is not so, is The Brotherhood.
- In Saints Row 2, there is a glitch where the Saints could become your enemies. This is done by taking out the disk as the host of a co-op game after starting FUZZ. A cop will than be recruited as a homie and the Saints will be your enemies.
Saints Row: The Third
- In Saints Row: The Third, all the Saints from Steelport wore purple already, even prior to joining the gang.
- None of the members of the 3rd Street Saints at the beginning of Saints Row are still in the gang at the end of Saints Row: The Third.
