The Truth is an aging hippie who lives in San Fierro and had previously owned a cannabis farm on the outskirts of the city. The Truth and Carl Johnson became friends while CJ was in exile in the Badlands, with CJ helping Truth in the theft of a combine harvester and the destruction of his own farm's crops after the police learned of the farm.

After CJ purchases an abandoned airfield on the outskirts of Las Venturas, The Truth once again seeks CJ, this time to steal government property, including a Jetpack from the Area 69 military complex and a containment unit containing unknown "green goo" transported by a heavily guarded train. Truth would play a more minor role thereafter.

As a conspiracy theorist, The Truth is apparently well aware of conspiracies surrounding the government and related organizations (including law enforcement agencies and the police), which causes him to question CJ after doing missions for Mike Toreno. Truth also owns a van dubbed "The Mothership", although he claims to travel via his astral goat, Herbie, and is acquainted with mechanics Dwaine and Jethro, along with electronics expert Zero.

Mission appearances

GTA San Andreas


  • On two separate occasions, The Truth calls into the WCTR show Area 53 and talks about various conspiracy-themed topics. He states on the second time he calls in that he has "held them [aliens] in his own hands." The aliens he may be speaking about may possibly be the substance collected in the mission Green Goo.
  • The Truth claims that he has never shot a gun.
  • When comparing The Truth ingame with his artwork, he seems to be much younger, still having colored hair, instead of gray hair.
  • The Truth is speculated to have an account on the Grand Theft Auto IVGTA IV website under the name Trooth.
