THE RENEGADE VICE LORDS WERE FORMED IN THE YEAR 1985 (1986)??? IN THE ROCKWELL GARDEN HOUSING PROJECTS ON THE NORTHSIDE BY A HIGH RANKING 5 STAR GENERAL KNOWN AS KING SPOT. THE RENEGADE VICE LORDS MAIN STRONGHOLD AND MAIN BASE OF OPERATION WAS ROCKWELL GARDENS WHERE THEY OPERATED AS AN OFFICIAL FACTION OF VLN ADOPTING COLORS AS WELL AS SYMBOLS (DESPITE THEIR MONIKER "RENEGADE") ALTHOUGH THE RVLs ADOPTED THEIR OWN COLORS AND SYMBOLS AS WELL DURING THE TIME OF THEIR EMERGING ORGANIZATION. SOON AFTER EMERGING ONTO THE CRIME SCENE THE RVLs ADOPTED THE BATMAN SYMBOL (SYMBOLIZING THEIR PARTICULAR GROUP/FACTION'S INDEPENDENCE RVLs "RENEGADES") (LIKE THE UVLs ADOPTED THE GRIM REAPER SYMBOLIZING THEIR INDEPENDENCE) THE RVLs SPECIFICALLY WITHIN THE ROCKWELL GARDEN AREA WERE PRONE TO STARTING TO WEAR THE COLOR PURPLE VS THE ADDITIONAL ORIGINAL GOLD/BLACK/RED COLORS OF VLN. THE RVLs BEGAN TO GROW RAPIDLY IN NUMBER DURING THE PERIOD OF THE LATE 80s WELL INTO THE MID-TO-LATE 90s SPREADING THEIR BASES AS FAR AS EAST ST. LOUIS. ALTHOUGH THE RVLN WOULD SUFFER A MAJOR BLOW DURING THIS PERIOD OF GROWTH, THEIR LEADER KING SPOT WAS FOUND BRUTALLY MURDERED IN A ALLEY ON THE WESTSIDE. RUMORS (SOME SAY OVER COMPETITION OF LEADERSHIP POWER) THE RVLs ARE STILL SAID TO BE ACTIVE IN CERTAIN AREAS IN THE CITY. THE RVLs ALSO NOW HAVE FACTIONS: KNOWN AS THE MADD RENEGADE VICE LORDS
