Luis Fernando Lopez is the main protagonist and playable character of Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony, the second and final downloadable episodic pack for the game.


Luis Fernando Lopez is the 25-year old bodyguard and business associate of Anthony Prince. He is of Dominican decent. He was born and raised in Northwood. He has a brother and a sister who have both left Liberty City. His father was a Marine who abandoned them while they were young. Luis grew up with Armando Torres, Henrique Bardas  Oscar Gomez, Alonso Gomez, Teddy Benevidez and Willy Valerio,as they all went to the same school, and often got him into trouble. During his childhood, it is assumed that Lopez delt drugs for Oscar Gomez and Willy Valerio.

During the time Lopez had been arrested for dealing drugs, nightclub entrepreneur Anthony Prince had begun hiring doormen for his two new nightclubs: the Maisonette 9 and gay club Hercules. Eventually, Prince found Luis in a youth program. Lopez accepted the job, eventually becoming Prince's bodyguard. He cut all remaining ties he held with Gomez and Valerio, with the exception of Torres and Bardas. Unfortunately, Prince was in debt to several criminals across the city, Mori Kibbutz, a fitness enthusiast and Rocco Pelosi, a member of the Ancelotti crime family, to name a few. Lopez also worked casually with the multibillionare real estate developer Yusuf Amir and Russian gangster Ray Bulgarin, who would later attempt to murder Luis and Prince.

Grand Theft Auto IV

Luis appears in Grand Theft Auto IV on three occasions:

  • Lopez's third appearance was alongside Prince in the mission "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend", in which he watches over the exchange between the diamonds, which Luis had originally stole, and Gracie Ancelotti. The exchange was interrupted by Ray Bulgarin, who believed Prince and Lopez had stolen the diamonds from him, and sent his men to murder all parties who were attending the exchange.

The Lost And Damned

Luis appears in The Lost and Damned twice; once during the game's rendition of the mission "Museum Piece", and then once again in the mission "Diamonds in the Rough", where Johnny Klebitz attemps to steal the conflict diamonds being sold to Prince. When the deal is ambushed, Luis orders Prince's boyfriend, Evan Moss, to escape with the diamonds in Moss' limo, while Luis escorts Prince to safety. It is revealed in The Ballad of Gay Tony that during Lopez and Prince's escape, members of the Lost Motorcycle Club tailed them, attemping to murder the pair. Klebitz eventually stole the diamonds from Moss, before murdering him.
