||● Carl "CJ" Johnson
Voiced By Chris "Young Maylay" Bellard.
Carl Johnson is the main character in GTA San Andreas. He makes his
return to Los Santos to attend his mothers funeral after living away in
Liberty City for five years. Carl seems to like making his own
decisions, but will always help out whenever anyone needs his
assistance. He cares strongly for his family, especially his brother
Sweet and hates the C.R.A.S.H.
● Sean "Sweet" Johnson
Voiced By Faizon Love.
Carl's brother, and the leader of the Grove Street Families. Sweet
thinks about nothing else but getting the drugs off the streets and
getting the GSF back to the top of the gang ladder, where they belong.
He isn't the most friendly person with his sister Kendl, but how many
brothers and sisters are? Sweet is one of the toughest characters in the
game, and always knows what he wants to do next.
||● Kendl Johnson
Voiced By Yo Yo.
Carl and Sweet's younger sister Kendl is dating Cesar, a member of the
Varios Los Aztecas. This angers the brothers, Sweet especially, but
she's grown up enough to make her own decisions. She eventually becomes
the brains of the family and works behind the scenes in the Johnson's
● Melvin "Big Smoke" Harris
Voiced By Clifton Powell.
Big Smoke has always seen things a little differently to everyone else,
but he claims to be a strong member of the Grove Street Families. He
tends to get involved in things away from the main gangs objectives;
such as the Russian Mafia and weaponry but always tries to help out his
homies. He will take whatever opportunities are handed to him though. He
can't resist, and it might end up getting him in trouble.
||● Lance "Ryder"
Voiced By MC Eiht.
Ryder is considered the loose cannon of the GSF with his "You can't tell
me what to do" attitude. He still feels as strongly as Sweet about the
Grove Street Families, but like Big Smoke, he's willing to take any
opportunities to make a bit of cash, despite going against his gangs
● OG Loc
Voiced By Jas Anderson.
OG Loc is a wanna-be Gangster Rapper. He's first seen in the game coming
out of jail. Not because he did anything bad though, just because doin'
time is good for the image. He has serious problems actually sounding
any good when rapping though, so Carl gives him a little help with a
rhyme book and sound systems. He's taken as a joke by everyone in Grove
Street, but he acts like he's tough and a real "gangsta" despite the
fact he hasn't put in any work for the set at all.
||● Mark "B Dup"
Voiced By The Game.
B Dup was one of the first Grove Street Guys to resort to the drugs. He
moved away from the Grove and doesn't wish to have any contact with
Sweet or Carl. He eventually moves into Ballas territory as a pusher,
selling drugs to OG's.
● Barry "Big Bear" Thorne
Voiced By Big Boy.
Big Bear followed B Dup onto the drugs, but for whatever reason became B
Dup's slave. Anything B Dup asks for will be met with "Yes Sir". That is
until he's had enough with B Dup's orders and wishes to rejoin the set.
Voiced By Eugene Jeter, Jr.
Emmet is only seen once in the game. He's the local "gun guy" providing
pieces to any and all of the gangs to the East of Los Santos. He teaches
Carl some shooting skills and offers to help out with weapons, however
his small yard only has one pistol which can be picked up at all times
through the game. If you need a piece for free, Emmet is the place to
● Madd Dogg
Voiced By Ice T.
Madd Dogg is the real thing when it comes to Gangster Rapping. He's got
the rhymes, the girls and the cash, not to mention a huge mansion.
Unfortunately, like most highly rated celebrities he can't resist
turning to the alcohol and ends up losing almost everything from his
manager, to his mansion and almost to his life. Thanks to Carl Johnson
he eventually gets back on his feet though and goes on to retain his
spot as the number one rapper in Los Santos.
||● Cesar Vialpando
Voiced By Clifton Collins, Jr.
Cesar is not so liked by the Johnsons at the start, apart from Kendl of
course who he is dating, however after a few meetings with Carl a
friendly partnership is made which gets stronger and stronger as the
game progresses. Cesar is the one person who tells Carl exactly what's
going on, even if he doesn't like it himself and Carl is happy to call
him his Brother In Law when Wu Zi Mu labels him under that. He has a
huge love for cars, modifications and street racing and plays a large
part in getting the Johnson's garage business underway. Most definitely
Carl's best friend throughout the game.
● Officer Tenpenny (Right)
Voiced By Samuel L. Jackson.
Frank Tenpenny is one mean cop. He hates all gangs and will do whatever
it takes to remove it from his city. Whatever it takes. He's the
boss of the C.R.A.S.H. and doesn't care how many laws he breaks on his
quest to rid Los Santos from gang warfare. He doesn't just go about
killing everyone when he feels like it though. He's a clever man who
uses whoever he can get. If two gangs will splatter each others guts on
the sidewalk so he doesn't have to, he'll happily provoke such an
action. All of his hypocrisy eventually causes problems across Los
Santos which can't end up good for him.
||● Officer Pulaski
Voiced By Chris Penn.
Pulaski is Tenpenny's law enforcing sidekick. He tries to be as tough as
the main man Frank, but he clearly looks like he's putting on a tough
shell. He still hates gangs though, especially Carl Johnson's Grove
Street Families, but like Frank he's also clever enough to see that Carl
will do work they don't have to. His cocky attitude will surely get him
in trouble too.
● Officer Hernandez (Left)
Voiced By Armando Riesco.
Hernandez is probably the only good cop in the whole state. He tries to
always do what's right, but has to give in to peer pressure. He wants to
rid the city of gangs just like his two partners, however he wants to do
it in a way that's right and not just kill everyone for no good reason.
Because of his different view on crime fighting he is disliked by the
other members of his team and if it was bad enough fighting all of the
gangs in Los Santos on his own, he's fighting the two people who give
the least shit in the city as well.
Voiced By Cynthia Farrell.
Catalina is introduced as Cesar's cousin. She's a crazy love-struck girl
who can't really make her feelings clear enough for the lucky man Carl,
and although she has fun robbing everything, her crime partnership with
Carl is the best she can get before moving onto other things with her
new boyfriend Claude. She clearly still has feeling for Carl though as
she is constantly "accidentally" calling his cell phone and speaking
about her love.
● The Truth
Voiced By Peter Fonda.
The Truth is perceived as a crazy drug smoking hippie, but it's not long
before people start to work out that he's not just called "The Truth" by
name, but that some of the stuff he says could well be true too. He
strongly hates the system and is always thinking of ways to screw it.
Apart from his love of drugs, he's very interested in aliens or other
undisclosed information, especially about government agents and what
really goes on at "the place that's not on the map".
||● Jizzy B
Voiced By Charlie Murphy.
Jizzy B is the biggest Pimp in San Andreas. Not only does he have lots
of girls to keep him entertained at his "Pleasure Domes" club in San
Fierro, but he's also involved in the biggest drug smuggling campaign
the city has ever seen. He'll use whoever he needs to get the job done,
but soon finds out that he can't just go trusting everyone and expect to
get away with it.
Voiced By Kid Frost.
T-Bone Mendez is another member of the Yay Smuggling team run by Jizzy.
He really only cares about getting the drugs and getting paid, but will
also risk his life to ensure the job is done.
||● Mike Toreno
Voiced By James Woods.
Mike Toreno would appear to be another member of the Yay Smuggling
squad, however after Carl gets in deep he discovers that he's more than
just a drug dealer, but a government agent with a massive knowledge
base. Toreno is not scared of anything, but knows that stuff has to be
done and when the helpless Carl Johnson is looking for a way to free his
jailed brother, Toreno will capitalise on that.
Voiced By James Yaegashi.
Wu Zi Mu is the leader of the Mountain Cloud Boys, a division of the
Chinese Triads. Although he is completely blind, he has trained his
other senses to a point where you could barely tell the difference. Or
so he says. He is blessed with extreme good fortune however though and
manages to come through numerous street races without a scratch. He then
moves onto bigger things and opens a Casino in Las Venturas which causes
a lot of problems. Especially when trying to run a Triad Casino in a
Mafia run town. Woozie is definitely one of the coolest people in the
game and makes instant friends with Carl.
||● Su Xi Mu (Suzie)
Voiced By Richard Chang.
Suzie is Woozie's assistant. He often helps out with jobs that need to
be done, and will also help out with Carl when he is working for him. He
is reasonably clever and knows what certain jobs entail. Especially when
it comes to pulling off a huge casino heist!
● Ran Fa Li (Farlie)
Voiced By Hunter Platin.
Ran Fa Li is a man of few words. Well, none actually. You will however
hear the occasional grunt, but in all honesty he's just one of the side
characters who is said to be high up in the Triads. He eventually goes
on to be Wu Zi Mu's partner at his casino, but doesn't play a very big
role in the game.
Voiced By David Cross.
Zero is a computer genius who runs a Remote Control Vehicles shop and
has a constant on going battle with Berkley; some guy he beat in a
science fair who now wants revenge in a war using only Remote Control
Vehicles. He turns out to be a useful asset in the running of the garage
and also in the Triad Casino as his gadgets make jobs easy, no matter
how complicated the device names may be. For more interesting technology check out the first living robots.
● Kent Paul
Voiced By Danny Dyer.
Kent Paul is the manager of a band, but loses them as soon as he gets
into San Andreas. He wakes up in the desert with his friend Maccer and
eventually meets up with his good old friend Rosie who he helps get back
onto the idiot fuel and takes him through a few wacky adventures before
going to to help Madd Dogg produce his first gold record.
Voiced By Shaun Ryder.
Maccer is a strange character who has a problem with frequent
masturbation. No matter where he is or who he's thinking of, all he's
doing is giving himself a little bit. He's pretty obsessed with tits too
and also enjoys doing all sorts of drugs. He was in a band called the
Gurning Chimps but is just out for the adventure in San Andreas. Maccer
is definitely one of the funniest characters in the game and his
cutscene in the mission "Don Peyote" is an instant classic.
● Ken Rosenburg
Voiced By Bill Fichtner.
Rosie has been through rehabilitation to get off his addiction to
cocaine and soon finds himself in charge of a huge Mafia run casino. He
knows that he'll be popped for any wrong move but thanks to his friend
Paul and his new ally Carl, he's back on the drugs and is tough enough
to stand up and let people know that he's the boss.
||● Salvatore Leone
Voiced By Frank Vincent.
Salvatore Leone is the man in charge of the Leone Mafia. He wants a
stake in the Sindacco Casino but also wants a say in the way things are
run. He's a man not to be messed with, but he can see things in more
than one way and will do whatever is necessary to make any sort of gain.
He makes quick friends with Carl and sends him off on a few dangerous
jobs involving rival organizations from Liberty City but is surprised to
find that Carl's allegiance is elsewhere.
Voiced By Debi Mazar.
Maria plays an extremely small role in the game. She is seen working as
a maid or waitress for Salvatore Leone in a few cutscenes and wants to
make as much money as she can. Salvatore takes an immediate shine to her
and it would seem they may be more than just friends in the future.
||● Jonny Sindacco
Voiced By Casey Siemaszko.
Jonny is the man in charge of the Sindacco Mafia. He's originally the
guy running the Caligula's Casino, but needs Salvatore's money, so
allows both organizations to be united, despite the growing feud between
themselves. Jonny doesn't mind getting his hands dirty, but he's caught
trying to destroy some Triad hardware and is made to pay for it.
Voiced By John Zurhellen.
Jethro owns a small hotdog selling business in central San Fierro. He is
great with cars though and eventually moves onto work in the Johnson
Voiced By Navid Khonsari.
Dwaine is old friends with Jethro back from their times in Vice City and
he works for a small garage in Easter Basin. That is before his friend
The Truth invites him to work at the Johnson Garage for a real job.
● Millie Perkins
Voiced By Orfeh.
Millie is a kinky girl who becomes good friends with Carl. She loves her
dirty clothing and bondage and can't help her feelings for any man
wearing a gimp suit. She works for Caligula's Casino and is the security
breach which eventually allows the heist to go ahead.
Voiced By Danielle Lee Greaves.
Barbara is a divorced cop with two kids. She likes the look of Carl and
wants to date. Not really much more to be said than that. She'll give
out some free Police gear to anyone who shows affection to her though.
● Denise Robinson
Voiced By Heather Alicia Simms.
Denise is saved by Carl early on in the game from a house fire and
becomes his first girlfriend. She lives extremely close to Grove Street
and is one of the only gang-banging girls in and around the Grove. She's
not too fussy about what she does or where she goes on dates and offers
a nice Pimp Suit to Carl for dating her well.
||● Michelle Cannes
Voiced By Vanessa Aspillaga.
Michelle is sort of similar to Cesar. She works at a garage and loves
cars. All she ever talks about is cars and although Carl only pretends
to take an interest, she is kind enough to fix any of Carl's vehicles
for free if he's in the San Fierro area.
● Helena Wankstein
Voiced By Bijou Philips.
Helena is a Lawyer by trade who lives on a farm just off Los Santos.
She's rather strange, but is just like any other girl in a way. She has
a lot of high firepower weapons to give to Carl for dating her though.
||● Katie Zahn
Voiced By China Chow.
Katie is a Nurse who lives and works in San Fierro. She loves car
accidents and anything involving blood. She's a bit strange really, but
she'll get Carl out of hospital for free if he treats her nicely.
