In the world of Grand Theft Auto V, the residents of San Andreas are back and the player can meet and interact with a whole range of new characters, from people who might have your back to people who are out to take you down. GTA 5 has arguably one of the best character rosters in the franchise and following Rockstar’s traditions, the characters are fleshed out well, making their personalities and motivations believable.
Some of these characters can end up deciding the direction your playthrough will take, thus getting to know more about them will certainly help you in making the choices you want. On this page, you will find the complete list of characters featured in GTA 5 including Protagonists, Antagonists, Companions, Strangers, and more. Below, you can find a classification of the characters in the game that have the most importance, namely the protagonists, their families and friends, and the antagonists of GTA V.
Family & Friends
Rockstar Games succeeded in getting the right impressions and impact out of their characters, especially the antagonists, who have just the right personalities to bring out the player’s emotions, for or even against them. The protagonists have different personalities and yet can work well together. Trevor Philips has got to be the most risky and well made character that Rockstar Games has come up with. His psychotic behavior coupled with his loyalty towards his best friend turned out to be a perfect combination. Trevor, along with Michael who loves his family and Franklin with his hustling traits, make up the all-round trio of protagonists in GTA V.
Character movement, reactions, physics, etc. have all been extensively improved from the previous games. The game has focused on realism and the characters play a huge role in bringing that to the players. Rockstar has achieved what they aimed for and their vision for their Grand Theft Auto V characters can be well experienced in the game today.
