Notable characters

As the protagonist of Grand Theft Auto IV, Niko Bellic is from Serbia, several characters in the storyline are suggested or confirmed Serbians.


  • Many players from non-Cyrillic-writing regions often mistake Niko and the above to be Russian. Especially, in Uncle Vlad, Vladimir Glebov uses Serbian to pronounce the word "cabbage". This may be due to Rockstar's poor knowledge of languages.
