Lance Wilson, better known as Ryder, was a long-time member of the Grove Street Families gang in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. He is accused of always being the troublemaker; along with CJ, and is also said to go on rampages, attempting the impossible, and is always under the influence of some kind of drug, presumably cannabis blunts dipped in PCP or "water" as Ryder calls it. During most missions, he's seen holding a rolled up marijuana blunt. He is also the chatterbox of the group (which is probably the affect the drug he's on has on him), and likes to comment on people's driving. CJ revealed on one mission that he was kicked out of high school because he beat up his teacher for wearing Ballas colors. Ryder claims that it was because he was too intelligent for school.
Later in the game it turns out he has been bribed by Frank Tenpenny to join the Loco Syndicate and thus drops the "homies for life" and becomes an enemy of the Grove Street Families. He persuades Carl Johnson to steal weapons from a retired army colonel, steal ammunition from a freighter train, and raid a national guard compund obstensibly so that GSF could make a comeback in Los Santos. If the player fails to rob the colonel without making noise and the Colonel awakes, Ryder will abandon CJ to the colonel's wrath, and he says himself that he thought CJ would certainly die in the armory. Carl finally kills him in a boat chase (or with a precise shot from the pier).
