Tauron Crime Syndicate
The Ha'la'tha is a crime syndicate which has a presence on Caprica. Ha'la'tha is a Tauron word which means "always faithful to the soil." ("False Labor") The Guatrau is the boss of the Caprican Ha'la'tha. ("Pilot")
The Ha'la'tha began as a poorly armed, native Rebel force on Tauron that attacked the presidential barracks of the corrupt Tauron government. This initiated a two-year Civil War (12YR - 14YR). William Adama Sr. and his wife, Isabelle, were members of the Ha'la'tha during this time. ("Dirteaters")
Taurons seem to constitute most of the Ha'la'tha membership. Like many other Tauron immigrants in Caprica City, they do not assimilate with Caprican culture. Instead, they form a diaspora in the Little Tauron neighborhood of Caprica City. ("Rebirth") ("Dirteaters")
Ha'la'tha Proverb: "When the tree surrenders all its fruit, it's time to trim from the top down." ("Dirteaters")

AfterElton: ". . . The Mafia is basically an organization for extortion and making money, whereas the Halatha, as you just described it, is more like, 'We’re downright discriminated against so we’re going to do whatever we can."
Sasha Roiz: "I think it’s not really reminiscent of that modern day mob. It’s more like the turn-of-the-century mob. The early 20th Century when Italians, Irish, Jews all came over and had very limited opportunities. They were ghettoized and forced to create a life and survive any way they could. In response to being ghettoized and discriminated against, they found their own ways and their own rules." (2)
