Overview

Lang Buddha is a character role-played by Buddha.

General Description

Lang Buddha is a severe-looking Chinese-American man with a short temper. He is quick-witted and often uses humor to disarm his interlocutors. He is the founding member of the Leanbois (now defunct), the Cleanbois, and Talon. He is the owner of Nest Holdings, which is the parent company of Rooster's Rest.

Buddha exhibits narcissistic behavior and demands respect from everyone he interacts with. He maintains a complex social graph that includes highly illegal criminal organizations as well as high profile business circles. This makes Buddha secretive and paranoid in nature, and as a result, he is a skilled liar and storyteller.

Due to being one of the richest men in Los Santos, and one of the greatest criminal masterminds in the city, Lang has a big target on his back. The extent of his power can be seen everywhere, as he helped get Denzel Williams elected as mayor. This has led to the Police Department, DA and Department of Justice to always keep an eye on Lang. He has made enemies with officers such as Sam Baas, Jack Ripley, Kyle Pred and Randy Wrangler. He is also known to bully cadets, to the point where some officers think it is a rite of passage to encounter Lang in a traffic stop.

Buddha has also become one of the best escape artists in the city, due to his improved driving skills, incredible map knowledge, and improvisation skills.

Overall, his business acumen and connections in the criminal underworld has transformed Lang from a hotheaded Southside gangster in his younger years to a refined business man who is willing to give opportunities to his friends and random people alike. He has created a business conglomerate known as Cerberus alongside Dean Watson and Leslie Lingberg, where they own half of the city's businesses, such as the National Paintball Association, Rooster's Rest, Premium Deluxe Motorsport, and Burger Shot. Unlike rich men in other cities, Lang and the rest of Cerberus like to help out the little guys around them.

Lang's connections have allowed him to form a giant family of criminals and civilians known as the League of Legends.

Early Life & Los Santos

Lang Buddha was born in China. His grandfather was the head of a Chinese Triad who died after becoming sick. Buddha was intended to take over as the leader, but the Triad didn't consider him ready. His grandmother attempted to take his place instead, but the Triad felt that she would become too powerful and also did not want a woman as their leader.

After being excommunicated, Buddha and his grandmother moved to Grove Street in Los Santos.

Buddha became a taxi driver and met Avon Barksdale, which led to him becoming a founding member of the Leanbois.

Rooster's Rest

Buddha opened a restaurant, Rooster's Rest, to sell tea and ramen and to host social events at the establishment. He initially hired Petunia Brookshire as CEO who was then replaced with Penelope Farthing who is the current CEO of the business. He would remain the owner and brought in Humberto Antonio Donato Pecorino to be the co-owner.

Rooster's Ranch & Reef

The Rooster's Reef is a legal Marijuana dispensary owned by Lang Buddha. They currently operate out of booths from Deans World and the Andi Jones Farmers Market selling custom Marijuana products. The business has two grow locations one of which is located inside the Nudist Colony which is now named - Rooster's Ranch and a second location on a plot of farmland just off Senora Freeway opposite Grapeseed.

Lang Buddha has since handed full control of the business over to Eve Summers due to Lang not wanting to jeopardise the business if he was caught running Marijuana illegally. Lang frequently let's people know Eve is one of his best CEOs due to never having to micro manage her, hear about any drama or give him headaches.

Talon

Main article: Talon

Talon is a terrorist organization handed down from generation to generation through Buddha's lineage. The current incarnation of Talon is headquartered in the underground area hidden behind a false wall built into the basement of Rooster's Rest. The founding members are Lang Buddha, Ellie Dono, and Denzel Williams, who were join shortly after by Jacob Harth.

The main goal of Talon is to "give power back to the people" and reveal the corruption of the government of Los Santos.

Methamphetamine Production

Buddha and the Cleanbois and members of The Guild are currently part of meth production operation. Their first successful batch of meth cured to 82%. Guild Member Gloryon was able to optimize the meth to 100%. After a partnership with the Ballas, Buddha switched to working with his best friend Speedy and the Vagos, a close ally of Lang's since his days in the Southside. Buddha has also started to distribute himself alongside the help of CB, as large exports have become available in the city.

Burger Shot Murder

Lang Buddha, Tony Corleone, Mickey S & Raymond Romanov made their way to Burger Shot to pick up food. Lang Buddha entered Burger Shot soon followed by Raymond Romanov and then Tony Corleone while Mickey S had stayed outside. Inside were two Correctional Officers waiting in line for their food, working behind the counter for Burger Shot was Hubcap Jones, Shelly Smith, Naomi Kent and other employees. As usual when placing an order at Burger Shot, Lang Buddha stresses that they don't double charge him as he hates having to pay twice on something that should just be counted as one order. An individual wearing a paper bag over his head who was serving Lang Buddha at the time tried to double charge him but Lang was having none of it exclaiming that "You will regret this" over and over to the employee. Moments later Lang Buddha pulls out his Diamondback Pistol and tells everyone working to put their hands up and not move. Lang then demands the employee wearing the paper bag go bring him free food else he'll blast Shelly in front of him.

As Lang is about to leave two female employees speak up and one of them calls Lang a "Karen", Tony Corleone let's Lang know what was said and this results in Lang demanding to know who said it. Naomi Kent speaks up and tells Lang "do you need money, are you okay?" at that point Lang shoots Naomi twice in the head and proceeds to quickly leave Burger Shot.

Naomi Kent was pronounced dead sometime later after the shooting. Lang Buddha finds out after Tony Corleone had received a phone call from Mel Rickenbacker telling him that Naomi had passed away.

Nearly three weeks after the murder, Lang Buddha was apprehended and sentenced to the 9s for the murder after a failing to rob the Pacific Standard Bank. All properties owned by Lang were raided in an attempt to find the murder weapon, the Police Department found nothing of value but an expired practice laptop.

Relationships

Leanbois

Buddha & Saab are both OG members of the Leanbois, they have a long history and they are like brothers. Buddha's relationship with Saab is pretty complicated at times due to the fact that they get into so many fights from time to time. There were also a few times when Buddha made fun of Saab because of his past murders and Saab didn't take it as a joke (Saab is pretty sensitive). Buddha likes to poke fun at Saab by accusing him of Jaclyn Hyde's murder despite him being the one to actually do the deed. When Saab was set up by Otto and wrongly accused and sent to prison, Buddha did everything he could to get Saab released. Despite their arguments, they both still have each others back at the end of the day. Saab has been away in Mexico for a majority of the city post economic reset, and though Buddha has made plenty of new friends, he still misses Saab a lot.
Tony is an OG member of the Leanbois. Lang and Tony have a long history and love each other like brothers. They tend to joke around and mock one another, but at the end of the day, they have each other’s back.
From taxi crackhead to terrorist, Ellie has been at Lang’s side, as he acts almost like her older brother. She tends to follow him to the end of the world, whether right or wrong. Ellie is a member of the Leanbois and Talon, currently employed for the Rooster’s Rest.
After Denzel became a member of the Leanbois, he and Lang became extremely close. Their loyalty to each other would grow so much that Denzel became a founding member of Talon with Lang and Ellie. Even now, Denzel would burn the world down for Lang no matter what.
Cleanbois

Though it seems like a love-hate relationship filled with bickering, Don and Lang have quickly built a strong relationship, co-owning the Rooster’s Rest together. They may mock each other and claim to bang the other’s mother, but they have a trusted relationship as Don knows about the hidden basement of the Rooster’s Rest, Talon’s headquarters. They often flirt with each other and try to make each other jealous by taking other people on dates. Lang confessed his love for Don on March 29, after Annie May was taken from the hospital.
A long time ago, Lang saw Nino as a mentor who taught him everything he knew as a criminal. After closing Sahara International, Nino is attempting to make a new empire, establishing Pegasus Concierge and becoming the CFO for the Rooster’s Rest. Lang has also shown Nino the hidden basement of the Rooster’s Rest.
Clayvon came to town after Avon was admitted to a psychiatric facility knowing only three names: Tony Corleone, Lang Buddha, and Al Saab. Avon told Clayvon if he needed anything, his boys would be there to help. Since meeting Lang, Tony, and Saab, Clayvon quickly became a part of the family.
Sven came to Los Santos years ago but disappeared without a trace. After Sven’s return to the city, Lang recognized a long-lost friend. Now, they’ve returned to their usual shenanigans to try and make some money.
Originally, Yuno came to city and was interviewed by Lando and given a janitor job at Roosters. He would never show up for it and was on Lang's bad side because of it. However, that all changed after he was brought to a bank job by Raymond Romanov, and after Lang and Ray both failed the hack, Yuno did the hack without any prior experience. After Donnie left town, and Nino started to lay low, Yuno was brought along to become a mainstay in Lang's inner circle. Lang and company started to bring Yuno to every job, where he would successfully hit everything from laptops to thermite. Lang enjoys having him around, as Yuno is ready to get into stupid situations and is a positive force to have around.
Ray was originally brought to Nino by Donnie to be part of Pegasus before it went defunct after Miles's murder conviction. Ray would slowly gain the respect of both the people in and out of the group and make his name in the city as a newbie criminal. Unlike the rest of his group, Ray is a giant perfectionist, and it annoys Lang sometimes. Ray can also come across as cocky, acting like he knows more about the city than Lang and Tony. However, he is still extremely valued for his ability to deliver in a pinch. He risks everything to save Lang and company, and he will shoot if he has to save his friends. Due to this ability, he has become a mainstay in the Cleanbois line-up alongside Yuno. He used to have the ability to stay on task for an extremely long time, unlike the rest of the group, but since boosting became a thing, his ACDC has grow wildly and he has started interrupting conversations constantly to announce what boost contract he has just gotten. His ACDC has become worse then even Yuno’s, and he has become quite rude and bitter at times.
Others

Years ago, Lang and Speedy were in rival gangs, doing drive-bys over weed seeds, but after saving his life from the cops, Speedy and Lang became best friends. To this day, Speedy and Lang maintain their love for each other.
Jacob and Lang have worked together on several underground operations, specifically the Dark Web and drugs. When Lang was establishing Talon, Jacob became involved with the organization to utilize his technical skills and creeper abilities. As brothers in Talon, Jacob and Lang have extreme trust in one another.
Harry Brown and Lang had known each other for a very long time, but their relationship in 3.0 began when Harry had become apart of Pegasus Concierge under Nino Chavez. He began working security for The Rooster's Rest and assisting in overlook for the Lang's meth op, establishing a level of trust between the two as well as a business relationship. Once the weed game sprung up, Lang decided to create a team of people to make money under the Rooster name, one of which was Brown. He provided needed security to the ranch, and after some time, Lang decided to trust Harry with basically running the business. He did this very well, creating a very impressive team of employees for the ranch and having it run smoothly. The two started to hang out more often because of their shared business and Lang began to know Harry on a more personal level. He became witness to how down bad he always is (earning him the name "down bad Larry"), and his addiction to collectable toys, which lead them to do "toy heists" together. Lang now considers Harry not only his right-hand man, but also his best friend. They now spend tons of time together, whether it be illegal weed runs, listening to the "Sheldon Song" when they're down bad, or just chilling. Harry has also been shown the basement of Rooster's Rest, a true testament of Lang's trust in Harry.
The owner of PDM and Lang are best friends. The two used to hate each other, but then grew into business partners, and then best friends who look out for each other. The two own half of the city's businesses, and are always looking to give purpose to people who are otherwise lost in the city. Both Leslie and Lang have used their money to benefit others through Cerberus and their various businesses.
Both leaders of the biggest criminal syndicates in Los Santos, Lang and K have a lot of mutual respect for each other. Tensions have run high between the two, as wars have been fought between Lang and K before the economic collapse. However, the two gangs have also worked very well together. Cleanbois and Chang Gang have fought off African warlords together, and have done many jobs with each other. Lang and K always say good words about each other and how they and their gangs operate even though CB and CG operate very differently.
Before the economic collapse, Baas was a prime target of Talon. Talon had tortured Baas in the underground bunker located in Grapeseed. After the rise of the new city, Buddha and Baas had mutual respect for each other, Buddha saw Baas as someone who was good at his job and actually wanted to protect the city. That changed after Baas had tortured Meowfurrion. Meowfurrion was never the same after that day and was ready to snitch out the Rooster empire, eventually leading to Buddha and the Guild murdering him. Baas and Buddha have always been adversaries after that day, and Buddha always messes with Baas as he can never catch Buddha. However, deep down, there is mutual respect between the two of them. After all the corrupt deeds Baas has done, Buddha still respected the fact that Baas was made Chief of the LSPD.
Unlike Baas, Lang holds no respect for Pred, calling him a "soyboy man child" on various occassions. Confrontations between the two usually end up in a screaming match as Pred usually yells when he has no comeback. Lang is deemed one of Pred's main targets, as he has used various means of trying to take down Lang and his empire. These investigations usually have gone nowhere, and Lang has stayed on top, while Pred tries to find another opportunity to take down Lang. Terrorism has been launched against Lang, and Pred has sat there and done nothing about it.
