The Sons of Samedi are a gang in Saints Row 2, Saints Row: Total Control and Saints Row IV.

OverviewEdit

The Sons of Samedi are a drug cartel who had already cornered the Caribbean Drug Underworld[reference?] and branched out to Stilwater after the fall of Los Carnales' drug rule. Influenced by Voodoo and a history of military corruption in Haiti,[reference?] the Sons of Samedi have developed a potent combination of spiritualism and fearlessness.[reference?] Gang members are attracted to the gang out of respect for their methods: a desire for easy income from their drug trade, or through coercion.[reference?] Their primary source of income is a designer drug called "Loa Dust",[reference?] which is the drug of choice for many college students attending the local Stilwater University. The Colombian cartel behind the Carnales proved unable to compete with Loa Dust and lost most of their base.[6]

The Samedi own a large drug farm in Pleasant View[reference?] and multiple Loa Dust labs scattered mainly throughout the west side of the city.[reference?] The Samedi also smuggle drugs using helicopters or by hiding the powder in fish that are shipped to the Stilwater docks.[reference?] The Samedi often deal drugs and recruit members at the Stilwater University.[reference?]

The Sons of Samedi come into conflict with the 3rd Street Saints when The Protagonist declares it is time to challenge their control over Stilwater's lucrative, fluid, and extremely profitable drug market.[7] They are very ruthless and violent, using mutilation and murder as a punishment for failure and betrayal.[8]

Members proudly display green when in the streets, openly proving and showing their membership, willing to risk getting killed in order to represent the flag they love. Although they focus more on dealing and trafficking than everyday block warfare, the Sons of Samedi are still extremely formidable in war. Never shy to launch massive scale preemptive attacks or retaliate, when it comes to gangbanging the Sons of Samedi are true get downers. In melee fights, they use a capoeira-like combat style and a Machete.

MembersEdit

The Sons of Samedi are an Afro-Caribbean gang, whose gang color is green and whose symbol is a skull covered in ritualistic voodoo symbols, set above a pair of interlocked snakes. Their leader is The General, and his lieutenants are a voodoo priest and serial killer named Mr. Sunshine, and a Caucasian DJ named Veteran Child. Although the Samedi have several safehouses around the commercial south area of Stilwater, The General usually operates from his Hounfor limo. They drive Danvilles, Stilettos, Churchills, and Wellingtons. The Sons of Samedi are specialized in the drug trade, producing the drug Loa Dust and selling it around the Stilwater University.
