- "We don't do butterfly ankle tattoos"
- ―Spider to the player on entering a tattoo parlor
He appears on the official Grand Theft Auto V website under the Artisans section where he is described  as having a career change after earning a Masters Degree in Physics and starting a family. He decided to start a rock band and date spaced-out women and manage a tattoo shop.
He shares a character model and voice with Boonie in game, with the only distinction being their hair styles and visible tattoos on their forearms. In game Spider does not wear the heavy spectacles seen on the website but has the same eyebrow piercing and both ears gauge-pierced.
