Lloyd Lee is Ari Gold's former assistant and the head of the television department at the Miller Gold Agency. Lloyd is a homosexual Chinese American who holds an art history degree from Sarah Lawrence College as well as an MBA from Stanford Business School.
As Ari's assistant, he was subject to a demanding and verbally abusive boss; Lloyd's sexual orientation and ethnicity often fueled Ari's venomous barbs.
Lloyd remained loyal to his boss after Ari is terminated, and delivers a motivational speech to Ari following the incident. Although Ari verbally abuses Lloyd, he still cares for him as Lloyd repeatedly proves himself as Ari's best assistant. Ari goes out of his way to help Lloyd on two episodes: Ari goes into a homosexual bar and saves Lloyd from a television writer who is looking to take advantage of Lloyd, and Ari reunites Lloyd with his boyfriend after a rough breakup.
In Season 3, Lloyd booked Johnny 'Drama' Chase an audition in an Ed Burns's TV pilot and is his current agent. In the Season 4 finale, Lloyd and his boyfriend Tom go on a Rosie Cruise, which can be seen in the background of Ari and Lloyd's phone conversations. We find out in Season 4 that he has a picture of Ari being used as his personal dart board, probably for all the times Ari makes fun of him. Also in Season 4 we find out that his family is wealthy after Ari visits Lloyd and finds him living in an upscale condominium.
