Events of GTA IV

Ilyena Faustin, Anna's mother, is not pleased that her daughter dates Slimeball, fearing that he'll turn her into a stripper, or worse. When Niko Bellic encounters her, Ilyena asks him to help save her daughter by scaring off Slimeball.

Upon meeting Slimeball, three choices can be made:

  • Beat up: Niko beats up Slimeball. Slimeball agrees to break up with Anna and leave her alone. Ilyena will call Niko, thanking him for his help.
  • Kill: Niko kills Slimeball. Afterwards, Ilyena calls him, angrily scolding him for killing another man in Anna's life.
  • Running away: Niko lets Slimeball escape without punishment. Afterwards, Ilyena calls Niko, sadly telling him that Anna ran away, and thus she no longer has a family.



  • Slimeball shares his model with Frankie Gallo, although with different textures.
