The Stepanov Family is a crime family based in Cascadia, and in the Angels Republic state of New Cascadia. The Stepanovs originate from a breakaway force of the Soviet Army that invaded Alaska shortly following the Great War of 1962, in order to secure the formerly Russian land. Many of these troops realized the pointlessness of this and left the harsh wilds of Alaska around 1970. Some of these returned to Russia, some moved into Canada. A man named Ivan Stepanov moved with many of his best friends southward, eventually settling down in Redding, California. In part to deal with discrimination by locals for being Russian, Stepanov formed a gang of organized crime, which would quickly come to rival that of the Bulger Family.
Founded by Ivan Stepanov.
