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 individuals he is in debt with.


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.

Little Jacob

Little Jacob is a Jamaican arms/drug dealer, a man who Niko uses to get his ammunitions from. He is a good friend of Roman. Niko has the option of doing missions for Little Jacob, in turn gaining both money and Little Jacob's friendship. Little Jacob later saves Niko from being killed by Dimitri and his mobsters.

A mission at the beginning of Grand Theft Auto IV involves Niko killing a man who has stolen McReary's memory stick, which contains incriminating evidence against Francis.

Game art depicting Elizabeta

Elizabeta is a drug dealer who resides in Bohan. She has many contacts with known characters such as Little Jacob and Manny Ecsuela. 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. Manny often talks about how he's "cleaning up the streets" and spreading his message out to other communities. Throughout the game Manny is shooting a documentary about cleaning up the streets. He intends to title it "Gospel of the Streets" but, like most of the time when he gets a good idea, he has no paper or a pen.

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 was a Russian mobster who ran to the Hove Beach neighbourhood in Broker with an iron fist. Nico later kills Vlad, upset that Vlad was attempting to begin a romantic relationship with Roman's girlfriend (Although it is clear that Niko also killed Vlad as a result of him always treating Niko with disrespect, and always referred to him by derogatory names). Vlad was only a pawn compared to his boss, Mikhail Faustin.

Mikhail Faustin

Russian Syndicate Leader. You meet Mikhail after the mission "Uncle Vlad". Mikhail happens to be a heavy user of cocaine, and has a very short temper. He often sends you on assassination missions that his "brother", Dimitri, warns against.

Playboy X

Drug dealer that works with Elizabeta. Also friends with Dwayne Forge, who is serving a term in prison for drug trafficking. Wears a red sweater with colored stripes on the chest area. He wants to support the community and use the money he gains from drug sales to fund schools and community centers.
