Dardan Petrela is a minor character in Grand Theft Auto IV.
Dardan is an Albanian gangster and part of the small Albanian Mafia. Dardan leads a small gang of thugs based in Broker. Along with his brother Kalem and Bledar Morina, he is a loan-shark and extorts the lower members of society.
One such man is Roman Bellic, who owes them gambling debts. Despite pressure from Russian mobster Vladimir Glebov to leave Roman alone, Dardan continues to harass him for the owed money by chasing him out of a poker game and eventually tracking him down to his taxi depot. Bledar smashes Roman's computer and Dardan threatens him with a knife, but Roman's cousin Niko Bellic breaks the party up and breaks Dardan's arm. Dardan and Bledar flee, but catch up with Roman later.
Bledar and Kalem corner Roman at a basketball court and beat him severely for Dardan's broken arm, but Niko arrives once again and breaks up the party. Niko beats Bledar and Kalem to death and finds Dardan watching the attack. Niko chases him through Broker until Dardan crashes his car and attempts to escape into an abandoned warehouse. Niko follows him, eventually cornering him in a factory floor where Dardan comes at him with a knife, which Niko may choose to disarm. From this point on, Dardan can be killed by one of multiple means, including a push or kick that sends Dardan falling two stories, hitting and rolling off a metal awning, and landing lifelessly in the water below, or simply beating him to death.
