— Gerald to the player.

Gerald is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, appearing briefly in Grand Theft Auto V and as a main character in Grand Theft Auto Online.

History[]

Background[]

Gerald joined The Families at some point prior to 2013. While living in an apartment in Chamberlain Hills, Los Santos, he started dealing drugs for them. He became a close associate with a fellow gang member, Lamar Davis, whom he often stole cars with. At some point, he met a woman who became his girlfriend and bought a lowrider. Eventually, Gerald, who was considerably fat, lost weight.

Events of Grand Theft Auto Online in 2013[]

Uh huh. Great.
— Gerald to the GTA Online Protagonist

In 2013, Lamar introduces the protagonist to Gerald, after Lamar became friends with them through Lifeinvader and they came to visit Los Santos, deciding to stay. Gerald then begins contacting the player, often giving the player missions that consist of stealing drugs from other dealers and gangs – usually the Vagos or The Lost MC.

Later on, after a lowrider delivery set up by Lamar for Families OG Vernon goes south, Gerald is arrested. The police attempt to transport Gerald by air out of Los Santos International Airport, but the player, sent by Lamar, is able to rescue him. At a later point, the player steals lowriders from a Vagos car meet and brings them to Gerald's apartment.

Events of Grand Theft Auto V[]

While Gerald doesn't physically appear in GTA V, he is seemingly still angry at Lamar for his prior actions, as he posts on Lamar's Lifeinvader wall, telling him to stay away from him.[2]

Events of GTA Online: The Diamond Casino Heist[]

Gerald's Last Play[]

In 2020, Gerald messages the protagonist asking them to help him on his drug selling business. The goals vary, with objectives such as assassinating gang bosses, stealing drugs from other gangs, and delivering drugs to buyers.

Character[]

Personality[]

Well goddamn you antisocial motherfucker, you gonna speak?
— Lamar to Gerald.

Gerald is referred to as anti-social by Lamar, which appears to be true, as Gerald goes back to his apartment soon after meeting the player. He appears to be a paranoid person with difficulty to trust new associates, as he hesitates to meet the player, and often tells the player to keep their mouth shut after delivering drugs to him.

He is a quiet person, often saying short words or sentences like "Nice" or "All right" when meeting or messaging the player. He is more serious than Lamar when it comes to business, and appears to get annoyed by him. In general, he seems to have a low opinion of Lamar and speaks badly of him to the player over the phone.

Appearance[]

Gerald is an African-American man of an average size, and is slightly overweight. He wears a white fedora hat, sunglasses, a black & silver "LS" necklace, a black t-shirt, and blue jeans. Occasionally, Gerald may appear without his hat, revealing his buzz cut hair.

Trivia[]

  • On several occasions, when delivering drugs to Gerald, he may appear with his sunglasses and hat removed. Whether this was intentional or a glitch is unknown.[3]
  • Ironically, Gerald's apartment has signs that read "No Weapons" and "No Drug Deals."[4]
  • Gerald has a loose resemblance to Big Smoke from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Both men have similar heavy builds, attire, affilation to the Families and involvement in cocaine distribution. However, Gerald seems loyal to the Families, deals with other substances, and does not share Big Smoke's larger-than-life personality.
  • Gerald used to be overweight, and owned a lowrider which was stolen and sold to Mexicans by Lamar.[5]
    • Another possible reason for the post on Lifeinvader is because Gerald could have possibly discovered the theft of his car was by Lamar by the events of GTA V.

  1. I ever tell you about G's first lowrider? Man, that car got low. And not just 'cause of the suspension. G was a fat motherfucker back then, and that ride dropped an extra six inches whenever he got in. Scraped along the ground, sparks comin' up out the back. And he had this bitch with a big ol' ass. Man, that bitch was sexy as fuck. She get in the car with him and that motherfucker wouldn't even move. Tires just spinning on the spot, smoking like a motherfucker. And if it did get goin' it'd take this big ass scrape out of the ground, like a big trail like a plane crash. Dude, did that car get low. It was laid like a motherfucker, ma n***a. Damn. Hey, don't tell G but I stole that motherfucker and sold it to the Mexicans. Hey, a n***a gotta get in where he fit in. You think that's why G's so pissed, or is it all this other shit?
