Main article: Protagonist

Michael De Santa, formerly Michael Townley, is a retired bank robber, who, after making a deal with the Federal Investigation Bureau, moves alongside his family to Los Santos, where they live in a nice mansion. Unfortunately, his wife, Amanda, repeatedly spends his money and the family has became largely dysfunctional over the years. After getting on the wrong side of a Mexican Cartel leader, Michael is forced to return to criminal life once more, this time, aided by his protege and up-and-coming criminal Franklin Clinton. After his first job, he is joined by former friend Trevor Philips. Despite a rift in their friendship after several jobs, including stealing a superweapon from the government, raiding a county bank & a research lab for the FIB, they banded together with Franklin and Lester to pull off a final heist.

Franklin Clinton is a young African-American man who dreams of becoming big-time in Los Santos, in a world where the glory days of street gangs has long passed. He works as a repo man for a luxury car dealership, but his ambition makes him tired of the job.

Franklin soon strikes up a friendship with Michael, one of his repossession victims, who coincidentally got him fired. He helps the once-successful bank robber, and the two form a strange but close father-son relationship. When they execute a jewelry store heist, they are joined by Michael's ex-partner Trevor Philips. The trio pull off several jobs, and Trevor and Franklin additionally do one job together. Franklin eventually acts as a go-between when Trevor and Michael fall out, however they are able to put their differences aside temporarily to pull off a final heist.

Trevor Philips is a mentally unstable redneck and bank robber. A former military pilot, he based himself in Sandy Shores, where he founded "Trevor Philips Enterprises", which mainly deals with weapons and drugs. After learning of the jewelry store heist in Los Santos, Trevor realises that his supposedly deceased partner Michael is alive and well, and sets out to find him. After finding his old friend in Los Santos, the two, aided by Franklin Clinton, are forced to pull off jobs for corrupt FIB agent Steve Haines. Trevor soon discovers that Michael had betrayed him nine years ago, and the two have a bitter falling out. Fortunately, they manage to put their differences aside in order to pull off a final heist.

Main Characters

Lester Crest is an old friend of Michael, Trevor and Brad from back in the day. He is the deuteragonist to all three characters. At some point after Michael faked his death and moved to Los Santos, Lester moved to Los Santos as well, and purchased a garment factory in La Mesa, along with several other properties to use as fronts for his various operations. He is the mastermind behind the heists Michael, Franklin and Trevor pull off, and also issues assassination missions to Franklin. Lester also claims he was working with someone in Los Santos, and even considered them for the jewelry store robbery, but decides against it on the grounds that "they're too unpredictable" for the job at that time. Eventually, Lester will help Michael and Trevor planning the robbery of the Union Depository that they've been dreaming about for a decade.

David "Dave" Norton is an agent with the FIB and good friend of Michael. Dave's career with the FIB had been "unremarkable" until 2004, when he discovered the whereabouts of bank robber Michael Townley in Ludendorff. Dave made a deal with Michael to surrender his accomplice Trevor Philips to the FIB, whilst Michael would fake his death after being "shot" by Dave, in turn boosting Dave's career for taking down the "most wanted man in America". In the Prologue, using a sniper rifle, he attempts to shoot Trevor Philips but accidentally shoots Brad Snider instead, and Trevor escapes. Some time later, Dave intercepts a letter to Brad who is believed by the public to be incarcerated. The letter is unnamed but was sent from Sandy Shores, and Norton deduces that it was written by Trevor. Assuming Brad's identity, Norton begins corresponding with Trevor as a means to keep track of him.

Lamar Davis is one of Franklin's best friends. Described as "crazy", Lamar has opposing ideals with Franklin, often leading to arguments between the two. He is a member of the Families street gang. Lamar was working as a repossession man for Premium Deluxe Motorsport until Simeon Yetarian fired both Lamar and Franklin. Eventually, he will work stealing high-end cars for multi-millionaire businessman Devin Weston along with Franklin and Trevor.

Voiced by Slink Johnson

Steven "Steve" Haines is a highly decorated, yet highly corrupt agent from the FIB. Using his position as Dave Norton's superior, Haines uses Michael, Franklin and Trevor to help him undermine their rival agency, the IAA. All of his jobs are aimed at sabotaging the agency, so the government will allocate more funding to the FIB, allowing Haines to advance his career. Haines in particular, was known to be on the payroll of several wealthy and powerful people, including eccentric billionaire Devin Weston, whom Haines considers a "close friend". He is also the host of The Underbelly Of Paradise TV show.

Voiced by Robert Bogue

Devin Weston is a billionaire businessman with a stake in many southern San Andreas businesses, including Merryweather Security. He is also shown to have influence within law enforcement, as evidenced by his relationship with FIB agent Steve Haines, who would later introduce Weston to Michael and Trevor, after being given permission to torture Ferdinand Kerimov by Steve Haines. Eventually, Weston offers the trio special business opportunities: He offers Michael the possibility of making a movie with his idol, Vinewood producer Solomon Richards, in order to raise the value of Richards' studio and he offers Trevor and Franklin a contract to steal five luxury cars for him so he can sell them to high ranking Chinese government officials.

Amanda De Santa is the wife of Michael, and the mother of Jimmy and Tracey. She was once very close to her husband, but their relationship became shaky, and Amanda started to waste most of their money. She also partakes in many different affairs due to her "boredness". After falling out with Michael following a conflict between him and her yoga practitioner, she leaves the De Santa Residence with Tracey and Jimmy and remains absent for quite some time. Eventually Amanda and Michael set aside their differences and reunite the family, resuming their relationship as well.

Voiced by Vicki Van Tassel

James "Jimmy" De Santa is the son of Michael and Amanda, and the brother of Tracey. A young man in his early 20s, Jimmy is a lazy smoker who, like other members of his family, has a confused relationship with his father.

Voiced by Danny Tamberelli

Tracey De Santa is the daughter of Michael and Amanda, and the sister of Jimmy. She has a very bad relationship with her parents, particularly her mother who dislikes Tracey's boyfriend, calling him a "bum". Her relationship with her father is also far from perfect. Later, Tracey auditions for Fame or Shame TV show without telling her parents, but Michael and the recently arrived Trevor find out from Jimmy.

Voiced by Michal Sinnott

Bradley "Brad" Snider is an old friend of Michael and Trevor. He was a member of their heist crew prior to the events of Grand Theft Auto V, who was shot during the Prologue. Despite his limited screen-time, the circumstances surrounding Brad's role in the Ludendorff cash depot job plays a key role in the later part of the storyline.

Harold "Stretch" Joseph is a veteran member of The Families and an old friend to Lamar and Franklin, who has a strong dislike for Franklin. At some point prior to 2013, Stretch was arrested and taken to prison for an unknown crime that he presumably committed for the CGF set of The Families. Franklin developed an antagonistic relationship with Stretch, presumably due to his reckless and selfish behavior. Lamar, however, idolized Stretch from a young age.

Wei Cheng is the leader of the Los Santos Triads. In order to fulfill his goal of expanding into Blaine County, Cheng sends his eldest son Tao and his translator to make contact with Trevor Philips, one of the area's most prominent meth dealers. However, an attack on Trevor's meth kitchen by a group of Aztecas gangbangers dissuades Tao and the translator from working with him, instead deciding to collaborate with the rival O'Neil brothers. After realizing that the O'Neils stole his contract, Trevor, in a fit of rage, raids the O'Neil brothers' farm, killing most of them and destroying their meth kitchens. In retaliation for Trevor ruining his prospects to do business in Blaine County, enraged Cheng tells his men to capture him.

Martin Madrazo is a Mexican businessman and head of the Madrazo Cartel. It's implied that he is a drug lord, but insists that he is a legitimate businessman despite a recent charges being dropped due to the silencing of witnessess, which he ordered himself through one of his contacts. Madrazo first appears when Michael and Franklin pull down his mistress' deck, which a tennis coach who had been cheating with his wife Amanda had been hiding on. Upon realizing the house's destruction was based on misguided retaliation, leaves after demanding Michael pay the $2.5 million necessary to repair the house to avoid any further retaliation.
