There’s a lot to learn about the main characters in Grand Theft Auto 5, but let’s start with the basics.
In reality, Grand Theft Auto 5 doesn’t need an opening. It’s a huge game that has changed the video game business and media in general. It’s one of the most profitable pieces of entertainment media in history. Since its online version, Grand Theft Auto Online, is getting more and more popular and the game is planned to be on at least three generations of consoles (for now), it’s clear that the game isn’t going anywhere.
The game’s single-player mode, on the other hand, isn’t going anywhere. Rockstar Games never made any single-player DLC for the main game for fans of the satirical crime story. Still, it’s a great story with lots of sharp criticism and interesting people.
Franklin is the youngest of Grand Theft Auto 5’s main characters, and he might also be the most likeable.
Born around 1988, he had a hard childhood with a drug-addicted mother and a missing father. At the beginning of the game, he’s trying to make a living the right way, but he ends up joining the other two main characters and robbing banks with them. Even though this is Grand Theft Auto, and crime does pay, it’s a bad turn of events.
Michael De Santa
Michael de Santa, whose real name is Michael Townley and who used to rob banks, is pushed back into crime at the beginning of the game. He may be the first character you meet, but it’s still too early to tell if he’s more famous than the other two playable characters. He might be boring enough to win the most votes.
On the other hand, he has an air of mystery about him because he has a fake headstone that says he was born in 1965, but all of his friends and family call him 45, which would mean he was born in 1968.
Trevor Philips is the third and last main character you can play as in Grand Theft Auto 5. Trevor is, in short, a monster.
He was born in Canada, but there is no official date for his birth. He says he “grew up in five states, two countries, fourteen different homes, eight fathers, three care homes, two correctional facilities, and one beautiful, damaged flower of a mother.”
Amanda De Santa
Amanda de Santa, or Amanda Townley before Michael’s work with the FIB put the whole family in witness protection, isn’t a playable character, but she’s still an important one.
She is Michael’s wife and the mother of his two kids. She plays an important role in several of the game’s tasks. She and Michael eventually break up, which is probably for the best because it doesn’t look like they were happy together.
Jimmy De Santa
Jimmy is the younger of Michael’s two children. He is 20 years old and seems to stay home most of the time to play video games. With parents like Michael and Amanda, it’s not surprising that he turned out to be so lazy and rude.
As the game goes on, he tries to get his act together at least a little bit.
Tracey De Santa
Tracey was born in 1991. She is the bigger of Michael’s two children. When she is at the de Santa house, she often fights with her family or complains about her younger brother. If she isn’t doing that, she might be watching TV or relaxing by the pool.
She is rude and mean, like most of the other characters in Grand Theft Auto 5, but Michael has a soft spot for her and will sometimes give her money.
In Grand Theft Auto 5, Lester Crest is an important part of your crime plans. He is not only the best hacker in the gang, but he also plans and researches most of the heists you’ll pull.
He likes to talk, but he can also be a strange figure. His age is never said directly, but it is implied that he lies about it on the in-game social media app Lifeinvader.
Franklin’s best friend Lamar Davis is one of the main people who give Franklin missions early on in Eggy Car.
In contrast to Franklin, who is mostly serious, he is a happy person. He is also very tall, which is something Franklin often talks about. The best part is that he lets you meet Chop, his loyal (and cute) rottweiler.
There are a lot of bad guys in Grand Theft Auto 5, but Devin Weston is the worst of them all. He is very wealthy and runs many businesses, but he makes life hard for your favorite characters.
Of course, “difficult” might be an understatement, since Weston does send a small army of Merryweather troops to Michael’s house to kill his wife and daughter as part of his plan to get even. Until he meets his end, he is the main bad guy throughout the game.
The second bad guy in the game is a FIB agent who is (quite literally) Devin Weston’s partner in crime. He started working for the Federal Investigation Bureau (FIB) in 1993, but he has also worked for Devin for a long time.
Throughout the game, he has the three main characters do a lot of illegal things so he doesn’t have to. This doesn’t save him in the end, though. In the end, he dies, just like Weston, and will always be 38.
Grand Theft Auto 5 was a big step forward for AAA games because it let you play as three different main characters. Chop, on the other hand, is even better than Michael, Franklin, or Trevor.
You can play as him for a short time, and then he’ll follow you around as a loyal friend. He is officially Lamar’s dog, but he lives with Franklin for most of the game. He is a nice boy.
