Roman's Sorrow is a mission for Niko's cousin Roman. This is the mission where Roman and Niko move from Broker to South Bohan.


Roman and Niko are terrified that Dimitri and his sidekick will kill them. Roman wants to move to Mallorie's old apartment in Bohan. They find out Roman's apartment and cab business is burned down because of Dimitri and his sidekick. (Note: The parking space outside the appartment can still be used to store cars after being burned down.)


Find Roman in the trunk of a car off Hopper Street in East Island City, Dukes. Drive him to his safehouse and find it burning up because of Dimitri and Bulgarin. Then drive Roman to his Cab Office, apparently also burning.

Drive Roman to South Bohan while Roman explains to Niko how long it took him to set up the safehouse and cab business. Park at the apartment in Bohan. Cutscene. Niko and Roman go up to their room and have an argument about how poor they are.

Roman's girlfriend Mallorie comes in and breaks up their argument. Then she tells Niko to meet her at the community center "later on". Listen to her and visit the community center. See Escuela of the Streets for more information.


  • As you go to the apartment, keep and eye out for the cab depot. It is burning, but driving past it will not affect any dialogue. There is often an explosion inside as you cruise by.
  • Following this mission, Roman's taxi missions will be unavailable for the rest of the game. If you did a lot of missions, Roman will say that Niko was hogging all the business and the other drivers are jealous.
  • Roman's car service will also be unavailable until Roman's insurance pays off and he is able to revive "Bellic Enterprises" following Blow Your Cover.
  • After the mission, the news report on the radio will say that two suspects started throwing Molotovs into the buildings.
