Sean " Sweet" Johnson or Sweet Johnson is a Deuteragonist in Grand Theft Auto : Lost in San Andreas. He is the Leader of Grove Street Families and the older brother of Protagonist Carl Johnson.


Sweet is the leader of the Grove Street Families gang, which is based in Ganton, Los Santos. He is the eldest son of Beverly Johnson and the older brother of Carl, Kendl, and Brian. 



Sweet was born to Beverly Johnson and an unnamed father in Los Santos. He was later present at the births of his three younger siblings, Carl, Kendl, and Brian. Carl described Sweet as "the man of the house", since they barely knew their father. Sweet was also often bringing necessary money to the family through robbing other people. After 1987, Sweet became the leader of the Grove Street Families and recruited Big Smoke. Later on, Ryder and Carl joined the gang. His younger brother Brian died in an accident.Sweet moved out into his own house, next door to his childhood home.

Many things took place in his life and he managed to deal with them along with Carl Johnson, Ryder, Michael, and Big Smoke.


Sweet is described in the CRASH dossier (viewable in the instruction manual) as "naive, but powerful." He is intensely loyal to his neighborhood, but he can be harshly judgmental of people. As leader of the Grove Street Families he idealistically thought of using them as a means to keep crack and other hard drugs off the streets, and even when GSF's influence began to wane he refused to compromise family and friends, and originally founded the Grove Street Families as a way of keeping his hood safe. Due to his loyalty, Sweet is also extremely provincial, refusing to leave the hood and failing to show interest in the world outside of Grove Street. In the end the two brothers manage to take back their home and get rid of Tenpenny.

Unlike the leaders of the Ballas and the Los Santos Vagos, Sweet is not a coward and often leads attacks on the rival gangs' home turf.
