Big Mitch Baker from Vice City

"Big" Mitch Baker is a Vietnam veteran turned biker in GTA Vice City, earning a Purple Heart for killing a village full of Viet Cong. Vice City's cops mistreat veterans, which consequently led to innumerable clashes and 13 occasions of being jailed. He runs the local biker gang at The Greasy Chopper bar and is extremely loyal to his "family."
