He is an aging hippie and former drug manufacturer who lives in [[San Fierro]]. He is voiced by [[Peter Fonda]]. ==Character history== ===Life until 1992=== The Truth, at an unknown time, became both a hippie (possibly due to his upbrining), drug manufacturer, and conspiracy theorist against the [[United States of America|American]] government. In 1967 he purchased [[Camper#The Mothership|The Mothership]], but stopped driving altogether in 1977 (after which, his main mode of transportation was "an astral goat named [[Herbie]]"). In [] he met [[Dwaine]] and [[Jethro]] at a concert in [[San Fierro]], as well as polar bears that they partied with. As of [], he owned and lived on a marijuana farm in [[Leafy Hollow]], [[San Andreas]]. ===1992=== In 1992, he was acquainted with corrupt [[LSPD in GTA III Era|police]] officer [[Frank Tenpenny]], who introduced him to [[Carl Johnson]]. Tenpenny ordered a very large batch of marijuana from Truth, with the purpose of [[555 We Tip|framing]] a district attorney, and made Carl pay for it. The Truth then [[Body Harvest|has Carl steal]] a [[Combine Harvester|combine harvester]] from a rival [[The Farm|farm]]. When Carl arrives at Truth's farm with the money, the [[San Andreas Police Department|police]] begin to raid it. This forces them to [[Are You Going to San Fierro?|burn the crops]] and later shoot down a police helicopter with a [[rocket launcher]] (which Truth found in a batch of thai sticks and intended on making into a lamp). They immediately afterwards traveled to [[San Fierro]], where Carl had recently won a [[Doherty Garage|garage]] property in a race. Carl is sorely disappointed in the property, though Truth tells him "the energy here is fantastic" and it would later become a successful business venture. To help start the business, Truth [[Wear Flowers in Your Hair|introduces]] Carl to Dwaine, Jethro and [[Zero]]. While in town, Truth directs Carl and Jethro to help him scope out a government-owned van equipped with mind control. ===Life in the desert=== [[File:GreenGoo-GTASA.png|left|thumb|250px|The Truth holding the green goo stolen by [[Carl Johnson]] in the mission [[Green Goo]].]] Truth discovers that Carl is working for government agent [[Mike Toreno]], which he is disappointed in him for, but remains enthusiastic as he rallies Carl to collect a mysterious, all-important [[Green Goo|green goo]] (which Toreno [[N.O.E.|previously]] directed him to courier to fellow agents). When Carl recovers the green goo for him, he excitedly proclaims "Everything is different now" and that people will refer to 1992 as "Year Zero". Truth later calls into the [[Area 53]] radio show stating that he has held alien life "in my own hands", which may be a reference to the green goo. However, he never speaks of it again in subsequent appearances. ===Time in Los Santos=== [[File:Riot-GTASA.jpg|right|thumb|250px|The Truth, with [[Maccer]], [[Carl Johnson]], [[Madd Dogg]], [[Kendl Johnson]], [[Cesar Vialpando]] and [[Sweet]] during the mission [[Riot (GTA SA)|Riot]].]] Carl later receives a [[Mobile Phone|phone]] call from Truth, who is in [[Los Santos in GTA III Era|Los Santos]] and unsure of how he got there, after a night on a "peyote safari" with a [[The Gurning Chimps|band]] and its [[Kent Paul|manager]]. He asks Carl to find them and make sure they're safe, which later provides Carl a way into working at [[Caligula's Palace]], a casino run by [[Salvatore Leone]] and other mafioso. Carl later [[Breaking the Bank at Caligula's|robs]] Caligula's, and helps Kent Paul and his friend [[Ken Rosenberg]] fake their deaths to avoid Salvatore's wrath. Truth remained with the Johnson family, Maccer and Paul when they move to [[Los Santos]]. They'd since befriended [[Madd Dogg]] and were helping him restore his career with a new album. He was with everyone in [[Madd Dogg's Mansion]] to watch Tenpenny's trial on television, which had since become a national spectacle. The instant his acquittal was announced, [[Los Santos Riots|riots]] broke out in the city. Days later, Tenpenny dies in an apparent [[Fire Truck|fire truck]] crash on [[Grove Street]], the Johnson's longtime residence, which Truth is coincidentally there to see in person. He congratulates Carl on Tenpenny's death, saying "You beat the system! I tried for thirty years to cross over but you've managed it, man! You're an icon, man!". ==Trivia== *He phones in to [[Area 53]] on [[West Coast Talk Radio]] twice, the second time talking about having held alien life in his own hands, which may be a reference to the mission [[Green Goo]]. *The Truth, in the beta artwork, looks younger than his in-game appearance, where he has grey hair. *The Truth is speculated to have an account on the [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] website [[whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com]] under the name Trooth. ==Mission appearances== ;GTA San Andreas *[[Body Harvest]] (Boss) *[[Are You Going to San Fierro?]] (Boss) *[[Wear Flowers in Your Hair]] *[[Black Project]] (Boss) *[[Green Goo]] (Boss) *[[Don Peyote]] (Voice/Boss) *[[Riot (GTA SA)|Riot]] *[[End of the Line]] ;Cut Mission *[[The Truth is Out There]] ==Gallery==

- I'm not sure if you've seen our Oasis page which is an archive of the actual discussion that led to GTW moving hosts. When we moved, Wikia kept the old wiki open, eventually changed the name and removed all evidence of Grand Theft Wiki ever existing, promoted new staff and banned the staff who moved here with us. It was a messy situation, but I and all the staff here are still very pleased we moved. We have retained control of our site, been able to use designs and extensions to improve our editing and content, and not suffered from endless in-your-face advertising (try visiting GTAW when you're logged out). I'm pleased to hear you say you find this wiki is better in many regards, but as with everyone else I'll let you make your own decision about where to edit! gboyers talk 01:45, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
- I did read it when I found the page over on GTA Wikia. After you guys discarded Wikia because of the Oasis skin and its mass advertising, the wiki was a barren wasted page until some users stepped in and rebuilt it from the top. One user name WikisEditor was copying content here on Grand Theft Wiki and had his b'crat rights removed and has been blocked from Wikia entirely. McJeff and Tom were rebuilding GTA Wikia.
- I'm going to be completely honest with you, back in late 2010, my Internet was turned back on after a year of inactivity. By the time, I was interested by GTA more because prior before my internet was out, I always looked up cheats. After I typed in GTA Cheats, GTA Wiki(a) popped up and I saw the wiki, the page was white and the activity there was low (if I can remember, an edit was made 5 hours ago). I went back to the search and I found Grand Theft Wiki. After I went on it, the pages were white and I noticed a lot of info regarding to the GTA games even info pieces I never heard of. I didn't know how to navigate myself around it but, I just clicked on any article that was there on the bottom and read interesting stuff.
- As you said, I have my decisions to edit here or over there. I can choose both. The reason for GTA Wikia is that I'm patroller over there and I have to do my "patrolling", edits info and concocting ideas. A reason to edit here is because the accurate info here and the nice staff. As I said, gnomish edits here and there, but if I get the time and feeling, I'll edit often here.
That's 99% right. The only (important) thing I would argue is the one point that Wikia and GTW really disagree on. The community didn't "split" or "forK" - it moved. We changed host from Wikia to our own server, moved over, and closed the old site. Wikia reopened it, removed all references to the move, banned all the staff and pretended nothing had happened. Eventually Wikia promoted some random users as admins and things have continued. I won't go on, but the drama on that site is not worth the effort, in my opinion. I still think the community should unite into a single, big, awesome wiki - a split was not what we wanted. Wikia's decision to re-open the copy of our site after we moved was purely based on profit, not quality of content or any interest of the community. I can't forgive them for that. gboyers talk 22:24, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
