Lamar Davis
Name: Lamar Davis



Forum Drive, Strawberry, Los Santos



Lamar Davis is one of the five main antagonists in Grand Theft Auto V with Dave Norton, Devin Weston, Lester Crest and Steve Haines.

It is unknown when Davis was born but considering he went to the same high school as Franklin Clinton, it is suggested that they are of very similar age. He became Franklin’s best friend as they both attended Davis High School and lives in Strawberry, an area known for gang crime.

Davis is no stranger to crime as he is a drug dealer and gang-banger, his best friend once described his “slingin’ dope” and “throwing up gang signs”. Davies is a member of the Families street gang and worked briefly for Simeon Yaterian as his Premium Deluxe Motorsport dealership until he and Franklin were fired.

We first see Lamar in GTA V when he is doing a repossession job in Vespucci Beach with Franklin. They both encounter Michael De Santa, who they ask for directions to a house they plan to repossess a car from, Michael tells them the way and the duo find the cars.

Franklin and Lamar race the 9F Cabrio and Rapid GT back to the dealership and once they get back to Simeon Yaterian he orders them to repossess a Bagger in the Vagos-controlled area near Vespucci Beach.

They both search for the bike in several garages until they are confronted by gangsters, Lamar shoots one of them causing a shootout and they are forced to fight there way out of the lockup.

As they are about to hop back over the fence to get out, they see the bike they are looking for with the owner riding it, the owner is killed and Lamar decides to keep the bike for himself instead of returning it to Simeon.

Lamar and Franklin also kidnap a Ballas gang member called D, Lamar does this with the help of Franklin and Chop, Lamar’s dog. However, they are forced to let D go when Lamar accidentally reveals their location.

Lamar and Stretch visit Franklin’s house in Strawberry and they decide to go visit D at the Recycling Plant after stocking up on weapons and ammunition at Ammu-Nation.

However, when they get to the Recycling Plant it turns out that D had set them up with the Ballas. Stretch shoots D in anger and the trio has to shoot their way out of the recycling plant and escape from the cops.

Franklin later returns to his previous house in Strawberry only to find Lamar and his aunt Denise Clinton who start to give him shit about why he has been neglecting his family.

Trevor appears out of nowhere and shoos Denise back into her house by giving her some money and telling her to buy herself something nice. He gets asked by Franklin and he’s doing at his aunt’s house to which he responds that he is new in town and making friends.

Lamar convinces Franklin to do a drug deal with him and Trevor tags himself along, the trio makes their way to Grove Street. When the drug dealer answers the door, he offers Lamar a free sample from a brick of cocaine.

Trevor interrupts and grabs the brick from the dealer and discovers that the other side of the brick is drywall, this causes a shootout to start in the street and the trio is forced to fight their way out of Grove Street from the Ballas and from the LSPD as they turn up.

They escape through a narrow alley which leads the trio to the Los Santos Storm Drain, they steal three Jetskis and head to the Alamo Sea where they eventually lose the cops.
Later, in a conversation with Trevor and Lamar, Trevor reveals that Franklin is stealing supercars for Devin Weston and he makes his way to Hayes Autos garage on Little Bighorn Avenue. After talking to each other, Franklin leaves with Devin and Lamar discusses the possibility of them working together.

He later steals a Monroe for Devin which assists in the completion of Devin’s collection, he then assists Trevor and Franklin in transporting all of the stolen cars to Paleto Bay even though they get caught by the police.
