Avery Carrington is a successful Texan property magnate, real estate mogul and extreme capitalist.[1] He enjoys quoting his father[1][2] and using old-western euphemisms. He is willing to do anything to manipulate property prices and land value[3][4], including arson[1], rioting[1][5], bribery[1], intimidation[6], and murder.[1] He always wears a cowboy hat[1] and rides in a black limousine. Carrington has been suspected by the police to be wearing a wig[1], although this is only explicitly revealed in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.[7] The official Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories website appears to reference this trivia as well.[8]

Carrington is believed to be behind many lucrative development plans and responsible for violent slum-clearances.[1] However he is careful to be out of town on business when any violence arises.[9] He is a frequent guest at Colonel Cortez' parties[1]; he is also Ken Rosenberg's biggest client[1], which is how he comes into acquaintance with Tommy Vercetti.[10] Carrington has an apprentice, Donald Love[11] who is a major character in Grand Theft Auto III and in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories as a corrupt business tycoon. Carrington taking Love under his wing and teaching him about real estate explains Love's ruthlessness in later games. It is also from Avery that Donald is believe to have learnt a quote that has been repeated in almost the same manner in GTA III:

"Now, nothing brings down real estate prices quicker than a good old-fashioned gang war, 'cept maybe a disaster, like a biblical plague or something, but, that may be going too far in this case."

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Carrington is also featured as a billboard resembling Vegas Vic in Las Venturas. Carrington reprises his role Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, only to be killed by the player during his one cameo (under orders of his old protégé, Donald Love).[12]

Avery may also be involved with the company Avery Construction, a property developer working in the town of Blueberry in Red County, San Andreas.
