Lyle Rivas is a minor character who appears in Grand Theft Auto IV. Lyle Rivas is the cousin of Tom Rivas[2], both born in Puerto Rico. He was once a member of the Spanish Lords. He is a mechanic and a fence for stolen cars, and also has ties to illegal street racing. He is also a friend of Brucie Kibbutz. Both share a common interest for steroid usage.

Lyle owed Brucie some money.[2] Unluckily for him, his friend Brucie was once on a roid rage and ordered his friend Niko Bellic to kill Lyle for not bringing him his money.
