Before the Cobra Heights was created they we're split into two rival gangs. The first was started in 1962 by Carlos “Fi Fe” Gonzalez. His friends and himself banded together to start a music band. Seeing a large presences of racism in the music industry they converted to a street gang. They would take the name Latin Fi Funks until 1971 when they change it into Latin Tornado's. In the 1980's they we're struck with inside beef between each others wants to raise as self leaders. Just to make it worst there newest leader Antonio "G Baby" Lopez started a war between the new homegrown gang the Latin Pits. The Cobra Pits was started by Chico “C-Dawg” Nero. He was inspired by the Latin Courts a Chicago homegrown gang. As he recruited heavily amongst the Latin people eventually gaining a territory with a hill that dipped. Members would call it the pit and from there they're gang and turf was known as the Cobra's Pits. Chico's gang was first known as neutral and only operated in and around there territory advancing from petty crime to other ventures to make money. For unknown reason the Latin Tornado's began to attack Chico and friends. To combat this they declared war on the streets leading a lot of members of each fraction to get beat with sticks and get chased into stores for safety. Both gangs began to grab allies to help their interest. The Cobra Pits created the Cobra Heights Syndicate affiliation. This war would continue all the way into 2000, the Latin Tornado's would be pushed into a corner with membership on the decline and money dried up. They called for a cease fire and fell under the Cobra Pit's affiliation in good nature. In 2009 the Cobra Pits and Latin Tornado's shifted from two major separate gangs into card gangs under the Cobra Heights Syndicate breaking into more cards that same year. With there membership predominantly Latino they looked to expand in membership with other races. To help this there rivals Mercy Street Families offered peace through a joint affiliation with Holo218 Families under the 55 Syndicate banner. Since there joining they would work with the warriors during a short time of war amongst the other gangs under the banner. During so they've rekindled there beefing between the Mercy Street Families and Hoodlums. They have a known and standing affiliation with the Warriors gang 19 Glen Road Projects known as the Packers Affiliation. This name is derived from they're colors they use yellow and green.
The Cobra's colors are yellow, gray and black. In which they show this through San Antonio Spur's attires. They also use the Spur's as a acronym for Syndicate Pride Under Real Soldiers. Since the two forming into a joint affiliation they've continued to jump in members for 60 seconds. They also have there own oath and laws that members must follow. They don't wear bandana's because they don't like being mistaken for Latin Kings. With there rank structure they also hold a card structure for members ranging in age and years survived.
