"Come in, my dear, and rest your soul."
―Auntie Poulet

Auntie Poulet is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a main character in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Poulet is an elderly Haitian matriarch and the leader of the Haitian gang (which she also uses as her own protection).

Auntie Poulet was voiced by Youree Dell Cleomili Harris, better known as infamous "psychic hotline" spokeswoman Miss Cleo.


Life up to 1986

Most of Auntie Poulet's life before the late 1980s is unknown. Poulet was born in Port-au-Prince in Haiti. Poulet started both tea and drugs business during her youth. Poulet also founded a small Haitian gang.

From 1984, shortly after the Cubans defeated the Cholos, Poulet and her Haitians gang came to Vice City and took over the Little Haiti district, starting a gang war with Umberto Robina and his Cuban gang.


Poulet gives Tommy Vercetti mind-altering voodoo potions to get him to cooperate in the missions she wants him to undertake. This includes acting against the Cubans, with whom he has friendly relations. However, when the potion's effects wear off, Tommy shows no memory of what he has done for the Haitians.

Ultimately, she cuts her ties with him and wishes that he not return to Little Haiti, but if Tommy does do so, he receives a final phone call from Auntie Poulet ("Why you coming here fee? Me tell you we don't want to see you around here no more"). Following Poulet's final mission, Tommy destroys the Haitians' main drug operations plant.
