Lance "Ryder" Wilson is one of the major characters in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. He is a childhood friend of the Johnson family, as well as Big Smoke. He joined the Grove Street Families and eventually became a high ranking member when Carl Johnson left for Liberty City after the death of Brian Johnson.
It is revealed in the game that Ryder had been selling drugs since the age of ten. He is also usually seen with or looking for his "water," which is actually the drug PCP. He is also made fun of because of his short height, with people calling him midget.
