Tote is a soldier in the Stanfield Organization.
Stanfield crew chief Fruit is murdered by Curtis "Lex" Anderson in a dispute over a woman. Lex is a dealer with an independent crew of drug dealers who hold a corner on Hilltop. Tote recommends killing the whole crew and taking their territory. Chris Partlow counsels a less aggressive approach. Marlo rules that Lex must be killed but quietly.
Tote takes part in the charade Marlo stages when the crew is under surveillance by the Major Crimes Unit. ("Margin of Error")
