GTA 5 Character - Lester Crest

Lester Crest appears as a Major Character and Companion in Grand Theft Auto V, as well as a character in GTA Online.

An old friend of Michael, Lester is the mastermind behind the Heists that Michael, Franklin, and Trevor pull off. He also issues assassination missions to Franklin.

Despite Lester's physical disabilities, he makes up for this with genius-level intelligence, masterful expertise in technology and computing, and a sharp eye for detail, which is what makes him an excellent planner for the various heists he has pulled off throughout his life.

Lester suffers from a wasting disease that has gradually worn down his motor skills and left him wheelchair-bound. Due to his disability, he has grown overweight and also suffers from asthma. He became affiliated with Michael Townley and Trevor Philips, becoming a regular member of their heist crews since the start of their partnership, working as a planner and information scout. He refuses to participate in the 2004 cash storage facility heist, his suspicions being confirmed when it is revealed that Michael faked his death and moved to Los Santos, having made a deal with the FIB.

Lester and Michael reunite in 2013 when Michael finds himself in need of money after angering Cartel boss Martin Madrazo. Lester agrees to help, but only after Michael does him a favor, helping assassinate Lifeinvader CEO Jay Norris. Lester and Michael continue their partnership afterward in several heists.

Lester is socially awkward and not the best conversationalist, but is very intelligent and very well informed on world politics and details of corporate activities, using this information to be involved in stock fraud and corporate assassinations.

He also plays a major role in Grand Theft Auto: Online, helping the players in preparing and setting up heists, and also reappearing during the Diamond Casino Heist, when he begins a romantic relationship with Georgina Cheng.
