  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.

Big Bear

Barry Thorne[1], also known as Big Bear, is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Thorne was voiced by Kurt Alexander, who is credited as Big Boy.[1]

Barry Thorne is a member of the Grove Street Families and is one of the longest serving members of the gang. Between 1987 and 1992 he had began to use drugs[2], likely supplied by B-Dup. Eventually, and by the time of the GTA San Andreas storyline, Bear had become the man servant of B-Dup and does various chores, including cleaning the toilet.[3] Bear had lost much respect and had turned on the Grove Street Families in order to get more drugs.[4] However, Bear eventually confronts B-Dup and decides to stop taking drugs.[5] Sweet Johnson helps Bear with taking him to drug rehab.[6]

In a deleted cut scene from the mission Beat Down on B-Dup, Carl Johnson would take Bear to rehab with Bear explaining how he got into drugs.[2] This would set up a mission where Carl would search for Big Smoke and would need to find an informant. Bear tells Carl and Sweet about a Russian Mafia gang member who would inform Carl of Smoke's whereabouts[7], which would set up the mission End of the Line.
