Lyle Rivas was the cousin of Tom Rivas, both born in Puerto Rico. He was once a member of the Spanish Lords, but left the gang during the GTA IV storyline. He was a mechanic and a fence for stolen cars, and also had ties to illegal street racing. He was also a friend of Brucie Kibbutz. Both share a common interest for steroid usage.

Lyle owed Brucie some money. Brucie ordered his friend Niko Bellic to kill Lyle for not bringing him the owed money. Niko follows out orders and kills Lyle in Search and Delete.
