Ryder is a double agent who works for the Grove Street Families as well as the Loco Syndicate along with Big Smoke. He dropped out of high school because his teacher was wearing Ballas colors. He forces Carl Johnson to raid a military base and to steal from an old army colonel so that GSF could make a comeback in Los Santos. Ryder is only seen in the video game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. After CJ and Big Smoke were arrested by the Los Santos police department, Ryder fled to San Fierro where he turned from protagonist to antagonist. Near the end of the San Fierro series of missions, Carl finally killed Ryder in a boat chase.
