List of characters in Grand Theft Auto Advance


[edit] Major characters

[edit] Mike

Introduced in: "Jump Start" Mike is Grand Theft Autos protagonist and player character. He and partner Vinnie had earned enough money to leave Liberty City for good, but Mike was coaxed by Vinnie to take a few more jobs from the Mafia before leaving. After Vinnie was thought to be killed by a car bomb, Mike attempted to trace the killer, while attracting negative attention from all gangs in the city. Learning that Vinnie was still alive, was responsible for killing several of his bosses, and was intending to leave with Mike's share of the earned money, he killed Vinnie. Mike eventually escapes the city with a private aircraft owned by Cisco, Mike's deceased ally and leader of the Colombian Cartel. In the final cutscene in Cisco's plane, Mike says he may travel to Colombia.

[edit] Vinnie

Introduced in: "Jump Start" Killed in: "Truth Revealed" Vinnie is the partner and boss of Mike, who insisted Mike in doing a few more jobs before leaving the city. He was allegedly killed by a car bomb, with "his" remains found in the burned down car. He is killed by Mike, as he reveals his true nature and motive, as he was planning to leave Mike and taking all of his money, including Mike's share. He is the main antagonist of the game, though at first he is the protagonist of the game in the first several missions.

[edit] 8-Ball

Introduced in: "Fake ID's" 8-Ball is Mike's second boss after Vinnie was thought to be killed. Initially supplying Mike with several missions while aiding him in tracking Vinnie's murderer, 8-Ball would be on the run as he was chased by Vinnie's assassins. He was arrested during the game, but he escaped on the Callahan bridge after it exploded at the beginning of Grand Theft Auto III. A mission near the end of the game features Mike ambushed by the Colombian Cartel while meeting 8-Ball at a diner. During this attack, the Cartel members use flamethrowers as their primary weapons; 8-Ball was caught in the crossfire. Upon completion of the mission, 8-Ball reveals that he has been severely burned, and tells Mike to escape as police arrive on the scene. He is eventually arrested by the police, connecting to the start of Grand Theft Auto III's storyline (in which he would later escape, with his "messed up" hands wrapped in bandages, from police custody along with Claude in GTA III). This is disputed, however, as an article from the Liberty Tree's website, created as a teaser for GTA III, states that 8-Ball's hands were scalded by a pot of burning fat while involved in a scuffle with police.

[edit] Jonnie

Introduced in: "Love Boat" Killed in: "Show the Money" Jonnie is a bartender in the Red Light District, Portland Island. He served as Mike's third boss, before he was assassinated. Mike's discovery of Jonnie's death was followed by a pursuit of Yardie members that led to King Courtney, the head of the Yardies.

[edit] King Courtney

Introduced in: "Race to Run" King Courtney is the leader of the Uptown Yardies and Mike's fourth boss. Involved in a turf war with the Colombian Cartel, Courtney is also involved in illegal racing around Staunton Island. He and his gang would serve as another primary antagonist alongside Vinnie near the end of the storyline. See also: GTA III rendition

[edit] Cisco

Introduced in: "Fine Dining" Killed in: "Decoy Disaster" Cisco is the leader of the Colombian Cartel and Mike's fifth boss. He was killed by Vinnie.

[edit] Asuka Kasen=

Introduced in: "Kid's a Hero" Asuka Kasen (Japanese: 飛鳥加瀬) is the leader of the Yakuza and is Mike's sixth boss. Asuka is revealed to have bizarre fetishes and sexual preferences (BDSM).

[edit] Yuka

Introduced in: "School's Out" Yuka (Japanese: 優香) is Asuka Kasen's young (high school student) niece. Yuka served in only two major plotlines, in which Mike was ordered by Cisco to kidnap Yuka as Cartel blackmail to the Yakuza, before she would eventually be rescued by Mike and returned to Asuka.

[edit] Misty

Introduced in: "Ill Repute" Misty is working as a prostitute and was an associate of 8-Ball. She agrees to help 8-Ball and Mike find out more information about Vinnie's death by sleeping with some high-rolling clients who may have information. She later works for Yakuza co-leader Asuka Kasen on Staunton Island and meets Mike again, when Asuka sends him to deal with a pimp who had been stalking some of her girls.
