"Every muthafucka here knows what we need to do. Those bitches be ridin' around, thinkin' they own these streets. I don't care what flags they're flyin'... Rollerz, Carnales, Vice Kings... no one's makin' this nigga scared to walk the Row. We 'bout to lock this shit down... right now."
— Julius declaring war
At the beginning of Saints Row, he and Troy save The Protagonist from being killed by a member of the Vice Kings and he recruits the boy. The Saints take control of Saints Row and then go on to destroy the three other gangs in Stilwater. Julius reunites with his old friend Benjamin King in the progress, who is betrayed by the Vice Kings.[reference?]
When Stilwater comes into the Saints' control, Julius names The Protagonist his right hand-man.[reference?] However, Julius is quickly arrested by Troy, who was an undercover cop, and Police Chief Monroe forces the Saints to kill Marshall Winslow for him, or else he will kill Julius.[reference?] The Protagonist kills Marshall Winslow, but Monroe orders the Saints to do even more. Eventually, the Saints kill Monroe.
Troy calls Julius, telling him that he does not want to arrest his friends. He asks Julius to convince Johnny and The Protagonist to drop their flags. Julius, knowing that The Protagonist wouldn't stop, plants a bomb on Alderman Hughes' private yacht, with hopes that the bomb will kill The Protagonist, albeit, disbanding the Saints.[reference?]
Julius Little: "Don't you get it? The Saints didn't solve a goddamn thing. Drugs were still being pushed, innocent people were still getting killed...all we did was turn into Vice Kings that wore purple..." The Protagonist: "Jesus Christ you sound like a pussy..." Julius Little: "I sound like someone who's not a sociopath..." — Julius Little and The Protagonist discuss the events of Saints Row in Saints Row 2 during "Revelation".
In the time between the ending of Saints Row and beginning of Saints Row 2, Julius reforms and drops his flags after being let off the hook by Troy. He becomes a tour guide for the refurbished Saints Row Church, providing his voice for the tannoys, in which he talks about his life in the 3rd Street Saints and his reasons for forming the gang. After years of being in a coma, The Protagonist wakes up and finds some taped conversations at the Stilwater Police Department. These conversations reveal to him that it was Julius who had planted the bomb on the yacht. In addition to that, he also finds Dex's number in Troy's office, who had become the chief of police. He calls Dex, who said that he knew how to take down Julius and he told The Protagonist to meet him at the church.
Infuriated by Julius' betrayal, The Protagonist goes to the church. However, he doesn't find Dex there, but Julius. Julius had been lured there by Dex too, and the two discover that it was a set up right before the Masako throw a smoke bomb into the church. After Julius and The Protagonist successfully defend the church, the two flee to the Thalia Amiptheatre. After defending themselves from the Masako there too, the Masako fall back. Julius, who started to get comfortable being around The Protagonist, thinking it was "just like old times," is abruptly shot by him. The two heatedly argue, with Julius explaining why he attempted to kill The Protagonist, mentioning the fact that the Saints were becoming too violent and that The Protagonist wouldn't stand down if told to drop his flags. He finishes with "You owe me, Playa. If it weren't for me, you would've died on that street corner," referring to the beginning of the first game. The Protagonist retorts, "If it weren't for you I wouldn't have been in a goddamn coma!" Julius calls it even in a somewhat sarcastic manner, but is quickly killed with a shot to the head by The Protagonist, who walks away callously.
This photo of Julius and King is based on a 1974 photograph of two black men in a Chicago ghetto.
The picture looks to be taken at the Saints Row church before it was trashed with graffiti and scum.
Both are wearing their respective gang colours, although their taste in clothing may merely have served as an inspiration during the later formation of their respective gangs.
The Saints Row 2 version of Julius is very different than the original from Saints Row. He looks much older and seems to have seen better days. His eyes are also purple, signifying that Julius may have been using drugs to assuage his guilt.
In Saints Row 2, if the player insults an elderly female NPC, they may say "That Julius boy gave you what you deserved".
In Saints Row, Julius hints during a Stronghold mission that he is a fan of hockey.
↑Saints Row, The King and I mission. Benjamin King: So does Julius ever talk about growing up in Sunnyvale? What, you thought he was from the Row? The problem with burying the past is that you forget about it, you know what I'm saying?
