(Also known as CJ)
The first african american you get to play in Grand Theft Auto. Carl Johnson is a man who left his hood in Los Angeles (called Los Santos) for 5 years, just to come back to a phone call about his mother's assasination.
On the way home from the airport, his little C.R.A.S.H. buddies appear (See Tenpenny
) and take all his money. They drop him off in Ballas turf and leave him to rot.
Carl Johnson is a character you get to customize (first time in GTA), you can make him fat by eating too much at fast food joints, you can make him muscular by going to the gym, you can make him a sex bomb, or a sex dud by buying good clothes, getting nice cuts, driving sweet cars, and dating one of the 7 hot ladies while playing through the storyline
