Character Info

A number of characters appear in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV, set in 2008. Prominent characters are listed here in rough order of appearance and prominence.

Niko Bellic

Niko Bellic
Main article: Niko Bellic

Niko Bellic is the protagonist and playable character of GTA IV. He is presumably from Eastern Europe. Niko is guilty of committing previous criminal acts in his life and wishes to escape his past and his home, where he is currently having issues. He is persuaded by his cousin Roman to move to Liberty City where he lives the "American Dream" and Niko falls for the deception. In the beginning Roman is the only person he knows in the entire city and must protect him from the many undesirables after their money.


Roman is Niko Bellic's cousin who resides in Liberty City. Roman claims to be living the "American Dream" and that he has two women, four hot tubs and fifteen sports cars but in reality owns a gritty taxi firm in the heart of the city. He successfully manages to persuade his cousin Niko to move to the city using his deception. Their relationship is strained and they are always bickering. Roman is also heavily in debt with various figures around the city. He is most likely the man in the tracksuit we see with Niko as he kicks the door in, as seen in the second trailer for the game.

Possibly "Little Jacob"

Little Jacob is a Caribbean arms dealer, a man who Niko uses to get his ammunitions from. He is a good friend of Roman. It is thought he will play a big part in the game, at least in the beginning. He is most likely the man depicted in the artwork to the right.

Francis McReary

Game art depicting Elizabeta

Elizabeta is a female character in Grand Theft Auto IV. She is seen in promotional artwork for the game.


Lola is seen in promotional artwork sucking a lollipop. It is presumed she is a prostitute due to it being said she is available for "special hours". It is also thought that she can be used as dating material.


Karen is the receptionist at Goldberg, Ligner & Shyster.

Manny Ecsuela

The South Bohan community leader. Elizabeta and he seem to not like each other, as seen in Trailer 3.

Bryce Dawkins

Deputy Mayor of Liberty City

As seen in the slogan to the right, he's depicted as the epitome of cornball conservativism.

Tom Goldberg

Tom Goldberg is a guy in office & law. He is the lead lawyer of Goldberg, Linger & Shyster. This guy MAY get shot in the head by the Main Protagonist Nikolai "Niko" Bellic, as heard in many of the reviews provided by Gaming Community website like IGN. Tom Goldberg relies on two words Social Reponsibility.

Vlad Glebov

Russian loan-shark. Vlad thinks that he is a supremely powerful russian mobster who runs the Hove Beach neighbourhood on Broker with an iron fist and takes crap merely from no one. Vlad thinks he is a charming man with alots of women. He runs minor protection rackets and talks a big game.
