For the [[Grand Theft Auto 2|GTA 2]] protagonist, see [[Claude Speed]]. For other characters, see [[Claude Maginot]] or [[Claude Wome]]''. '''Claude''' is a recurring character in the [[Grand Theft Auto]] series, appearing as the [[protagonist]] of [[Grand Theft Auto III]] (set in [[2001]]) and in a minor role in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] (set in [[1992]]). There is no voice actor for Claude, as he does not speak in either of his appearances. ==Character History== ===Life until 2001=== Claude grew up in [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]] and by [[1992]] had emerged as a top contender in an illegal racing ring and owned an abandoned [[Doherty Garage|garage]] in [[Doherty]], [[San Fierro]]. He became involved with [[Catalina]], who had recently split up with [[Carl Johnson]], before [[Farewell, My Love...|racing]] Carl Johnson in a losing effort. Following the loss, he hands over his garage to Johnson, before leaving San Andreas with Catalina. The two, heading towards [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]], go on a crime spree across the country, eventually reaching Liberty City in October [[2001]], nine years later. ===2001=== Claude and Catalina arrive in Liberty City in October [[2001]] and immediately rob a bank. Catalina, however, turns on her boyfriend, shooting him and leaving him for dead, explaining that he is 'small time'. Claude is later arrested by the [[LCPD in GTA III Era|Liberty City Police Department]]. He is convicted of all charges and is sentenced to ten years in prison. While being transferred to a prison in [[Portland View]], Claude [[Give Me Liberty|escapes]] from a police convoy after the [[Colombian Cartel]] attack the convoy to free the [[Oriental Gentleman]]. Claude and [[8-Ball]] escape to a [[Portland Island Safehouse (GTA III)|safehouse]] in the [[Red Light District]], before moving on to [[Luigi's Sex Club 7]]. [[Luigi Goterelli]], the owner, gives Claude his first job in the city, to [[Luigi's Girls|drive]] [[Misty]] from the [[Sweeney General Hospital|hospital]] back to the club. Claude, successful in his errand, continues to be employed by Goterelli, who also has him kill a [[Don't Spank Ma Bitch Up|drug dealer]] and [[Pump-Action Pimp|two pimps]], before having him [[Drive Misty For Me|drive]] Misty to [[Joey Leone|Joey Leone's]] [[Joey's Garage|Garage]]. Claude then begins to work for Joey, killing both [[Mike Forelli]] and [[Lee Chong]], before [[Cipriani's Chauffeur|chauffering]] [[Toni Cipriani]], later working for him against the [[Liberty City Triads|Triads]]. Claude, impressing the [[Leone Family]] hierarchy, is [[Salvatore's Called A Meeting|introduced]] to the [[Boss|Don]], [[Salvatore Leone]]. Salvatore, 'seeing nothing but bright things' for Claude, has him [[Cutting The Grass|kill]] [[Curly Bob]] (who was selling secrets to the Colombian Cartel, now led by Catalina) and later [[Bomb Da Base Act II|destroy]] a freighter used as a factory for the drug [[SPANK]]. During this time, Claude also works for [[El Burro]], the leader of the [[Diablos]], helping him on various tasks, and [[Marty Chonks]] in his attempts to get out of his various problems. After destroying the Cartel freighter, a paranoid Salvatore [[Last Requests|attempts to kill]] Claude by having him enter a bomb laden car. Salvatore's wife [[Maria Latore|Maria]], however, phones Claude and directs him to a small pier where the two meet [[Asuka Kasen]], co-leader of the [[Yakuza]], and flee to [[Staunton Island]] after Maria had told her husband that she was dating Claude. Asuka, unconvinced of Claude's loyalty, has him [[Sayonara Salvatore|kill]] Salvatore Leone to prove himself, before having him kill a number of other people causing her problems. She later introduces him to her brother [[Kenji Kasen|Kenji]] and [[Ray Machowski]], a corrupt police man working for the Yakuza. Claude helps Kenji with his problems, including settling debts and freeing a [[Kanbu|man]] from prison, and helps Machowski in his attempts to remain unnoticed, eventually helping him [[Marked Man|flee]] the city by the [[Francis International Airport, Shoreside Vale|airport]]. Claude continues to look for work and finds employment with [[King Courtney]], who has him [[Uzi Rider|attack]] the Diablos before [[Kingdom Come|attempting to kill]] him on orders from Catalina, and [[Donald Love]], who has him [[Waka-Gashira Wipeout|kill]] Kenji Kasen disguised as a Colombian Cartel gangster, to provoke a war. Asuka, unaware of Claude's role in her brothers death, launches an assault on a Cartel controlled building site and begins to torture [[Miguel]], Catalina's right hand man, into giving away Cartel secrets. Armed with the information, Asuka sends Claude on various missions to hurt Cartel operations, including [[Espresso-2-Go!|stopping the selling]] of and [[S.A.M.|stealing]] a shipment of SPANK. During this period Claude, briefly, finds employment with [[D-Ice]], leader of the Red Jacks sub-sect of the [[Southside Hoods]], and attacks the rival [[Purple Nines]] into [[Rumble|defeat]]. After this, Claude [[Ransom (GTA III)|returns]] to the building site and finds both Asuka and Miguel dead, whilst a ransom note for Maria is left for him. Claude goes to the Cartel mansion, [[The Exchange (mission)|escapes an ambush, destroys a helicopter piloted by Catalina (killing her) and rescues Maria]]. Claude, at the end of [[Grand Theft Auto III]], may have killed Maria as he fires a shot whilst she is talking, although he may have fired off the shot to stop her talking. == Personality == Claude is a laid-back man that appears almost emotionless regardless of the situation. He will take orders from his bosses without restraint and usually gives a nod or two to show that he understands; even when he is getting scolded or shouted at by his bosses for doing something wrong. He never speaks, and will only make a slight grunt when he is hurt, or an "Oah!" whenever he is [[Wasted|killed]]. ==Trivia== [[File:Niko bellic in claude's clothes.jpg|right|thumb|[[Niko Bellic]] wearing Claude's clothes in [[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]].]] [[File:Claude_(GTAVC)_(Poster).jpg|thumb|Claude on a poster in the [[Ocean View Hotel]].]] *Claude appears on a poster inside of the [[Ocean View Hotel]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], as an easter egg. *Claude does not speak in either of his appearances, remaining silent, and is the only [[protagonist]] in the [[GTA III Era|Grand Theft Auto III Era]] to do so. [[Maria Latore]] discusses this with [[Lazlow]] on [[Chatterbox FM]], saying that a man she's just met "don't talk too much". However, as radio stations repeat everything over and over again, you can hear her saying that before she even meets Claude. *Claude's name is only revealed in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], having been nameless throughout his appearance as [[protagonist]] in [[Grand Theft Auto III]]. He is the only protagonist in the series to not be named in the game in which he or she is protagonist. *Claude was not the original protagonist of GTA III, replacing [[Novy]]. *An [[Easter Egg]] in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] states that Claude, along with the other GTA III Era protagonists, are deceased as of 2008. However, the [[GTA IV Era|Grand Theft Auto IV Era]] is not related to the storylines of the GTA III Era. *In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] the player can unlock a set of clothes exactly the same as Claude's for [[Niko Bellic]]. *Claude may or may not be the same character as the [[Grand Theft Auto 2]] protagonist, [[Claude Speed]], with many fans stating that the two are the same character. *It was revealed in Grand Theft Auto III's data files that the player was once allowed to enter their own character name, and the "DEFNAM" (default name) value for it was "Claude". ==Mission appearances== ;GTA III *Being the [[protagonist]], he appears in all missions. ;GTA San Andreas *[[Wu Zi Mu (mission)|Wu Zi Mu]] *[[Farewell, My Love...]] ==Murders committed== *[[Mike Forelli]] ([[Mike Lips Last Lunch|killed]] on orders from [[Joey Leone]] for not repaying his debts) *[[Lee Chong]] ([[Farewell 'Chunky' Lee Chong|killed]] on orders from Joey Leone for selling [[SPANK]] through his noodle stands) *[[Curly Bob]] ([[Cutting the Grass|killed]] on orders from [[Salvatore Leone]] for selling [[Leone Family]] secrets to the [[Colombian Cartel]]) *[[Salvatore Leone]] ([[Sayonara Salvatore|killed]] on orders from [[Asuka Kasen]] to prove his loyalty to the [[Yakuza]] and for trying to kill Claude) *[[Tanner]] ([[Two-Faced Tanner|killed]] on orders from Asuka Kasen for being an undercover [[LCPD in GTA III Era|policeman]]) *[[Leon McAffrey]] ([[Silence The Sneak|killed]] on orders from [[Ray Machowski]] for agreeing to turn states evidence against Machowski) *[[Kenji Kasen]] ([[Waka-Gashira Wipeout|killed]] on orders from [[Donald Love]] to start a war between the Colombian Cartel and the Yakuza) *[[Catalina]] ([[The Exchange (mission)|killed]] for betraying him during a bank heist) ===Possible murders=== *[[Carl]] (can be killed during the mission [[Her Lover]]) *[[Maria Latore]] (may have been killed following [[The Exchange (mission)|The Exchange]]) *[[Chico]] (can be killed during the mission Chaperone, after he gives SPANK to Maria Latore) ==Gallery== Claude-Artwork.jpg|Artwork of Claude Liberty_Prison_Fatigues.png|Claude's prison garments.
