|Full Name||Zorba Philippidis|
|Occupation||Captain of the Platypus|
Zorba Philippidis was, in 2008, the captain of the Platypus ship that docked in Liberty City bringing Niko Bellic to the city. Shortly after the Platypus had docked, Zorba's body was found floating in the Humboldt River. The autopsy revealed he had drowned, and that he also had an immense amount of alcohol in his system. His remains were returned to his wife in Thailand, implying that Zorba was originally from there (although his name is clearly Greek).
