Fabien LaRouche's journey involves a transition from a small French town to San Fierro in 1999, driven by the belief that he would belong there. Unfortunately, he faced unproven criminal charges and eventually settled in Los Santos.
Struggling with personal crises and poor choices, he discovered yoga in 2002, which served as a lifeline. By early 2009, he had mastered various yoga techniques, even the art of feeding himself blades of grass with his toes, showcasing his eccentric character in GTA V.
In 2013, Fabien LaRouche is introduced as Amanda De Santa's private yoga instructor in GTA V. His unconventional and often sexually-oriented teaching methods provoke irritation from Amanda's husband, Michael. Fabien attempts to defuse their arguments on multiple occasions, but his presence only adds fuel to the fire.
Later, when Michael's friend Trevor Philips visits, he questions Fabien's role, leading to an awkward introduction. Amid another dispute, Fabien invites Michael to join a yoga session with Amanda, resulting in an unexpected poolside confrontation after Fabien attempts an inappropriate yoga pose on Amanda.
Tired of Michael's anger and provoked by Fabien, Amanda eventually moves in with him, taking their children, Jimmy and Tracey. During this time, they post Lifeinvader updates about their new lives, initially praising Fabien's appreciation for Amanda's inner and outer beauty, but their opinions sour as Fabien's behavior becomes increasingly bothersome.
In a bid to reunite his family, Jimmy informs Michael that Amanda and Fabien are at a nearby Bean Machine café. Michael and Jimmy confront them, but Fabien's rude remarks lead to a physical altercation.
Amanda decides to leave Fabien and reconcile with Michael, leading to a confrontation where Michael hits Fabien with a laptop, and Jimmy follows up with a kick to Fabien's head. Amanda and Michael drive off to fix their marriage, while Fabien is left behind, posting on Bleeter following the incident.
Fabien is seen dressed in a black vest and brown shorts. He is seen dressed in body fitting or sporty outfits as he is a yoga instructor. The symbol on his vest is a Chinese character for “harmony”.
