Rockstar Games describes Lamar, one of the best characters in their game Grand Theft Auto V, as a “good kind of crazy” and someone who is also very funny. His best friend Franklin is opposite to him, with pride over his Apache descent being used for jokes throughout the story.

Lamar is lazy and lacks common sense. He gets himself into trouble by trusting people in the criminal world without getting to know them properly first, such as when he takes a job with Ballas after previously trying to kidnap one of their members for money but ends up ambushed instead.


In the mission “Hood Safari,” Lamar and Franklin go to Grove Street for a drug deal. If Trevor weren’t there, they would’ve been ripped off by some drywall instead of cocaine. In another instance in “Lamar Down,” he’s annoyed with Franklin because he feels like Frank abandoned him when moving up north (Vinewood Hills). Generally speaking, it seems that all his plans are unsuccessful as well both times end with them penniless or nearly dead.
Lamar appears to play the role of comedic relief as a sidekick, but he’s actually ruthless and violent. His character may seem trivialized—despite being in-game shootouts, Lamar never really harms anyone outside their game world.

The protagonist of the game, Lamar, is a loyal friend to Franklin. His loyalty extends even into death; in one ending with him, he helps his friends save their lives despite knowing it will probably result in his own demise. When hanging out with other characters during free roam activities, Lamar can mention that he doesn’t like Michael much and also seems close to his mother because she has “Mom” tattooed on her right side as well.
