protagonistand player characterof "Grand Theft Auto III" ("GTA III"). He is left for dead after a bank heist with Catalina, resulting in his arrest by the police. Claude later escapes with 8-Ball when the Callahan Bridge is blown up.
Claude's name is never disclosed in the game. Although it is revealed that his name can be found deep within "GTA III's" data files,cite web|url=http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/9276/claude4nq.jpg|title=ImageShack hosted image depicting existence of "Claude" in "Grand Theft Auto III" data files|accessmonthday=July 26|accessyear=2006] the name is mentioned in "". Claude's first name and likeness is similar to that of Claude Speed, the player character of "
Grand Theft Auto 2".
Throughout the game, Claude has largely remained speechless and is never heard talking (only making quiet sounds if he is injured or killed), remaining so during his brief cameo in "San Andreas". This trait is referenced in "GTA III", when Maria suggests on the Chatterbox radio show that " [Claude] don't talk too much."
"Introduced in: Introduction, Bank Heist Cutscene"
"Killed in: "The Exchange"
Catalina is a notorious bank robber,cite web | url = http://www.rockstargames.com/libertytree/story3.html | title= "Liberty Tree": "Have You Seen This Woman?" | work = Official Grand Theft Auto III website | accessmonthday = July 26 | accessyear = 2006] Claude's former girlfriend and the main
antagonistin "GTA III", who betrays him during a bank heist, shooting him and leaving him for dead, while she runs free with the profits along with a new partner in crime, Miguel. Her reason for dating Claude is simply "business,"Catalina: "The real question is, did you turn up to rescue Maria or to get me back? Well I got news for you, shooting you will be a pleasure but dating you was only business." (Opening cutscene of "Ransom", "Grand Theft Auto III".)] while her reason for shooting Claude is his lack of ambition.Catalina: "Sorry babe. I'm an ambitious girl. And you, you're just small time." (Opening bank heist cutscene, "Grand Theft Auto III".)]
Catalina proceeds to cooperate with the Colombian Cartel, running a SPANK drug manufacturing and distribution business with Miguel. She betrays Miguel later, after Claude discovers them in a construction site; when Miguel attempts to get Claude to lower his gun, Catalina shoots Miguel and jumps out of the building onto a pile of boxes several stories below, before Asuka emerges and proceeds to torture and interrogate Miguel.
She was later responsible for the kidnapping of Maria and the killing of Asuka and Miguel. Requesting a ransom to be given for Maria's release, Claude does as instructed, but is fooled once again by Catalina, who instructs the Cartel to kill Claude. Despite overwhelming odds, Claude turns the tables by punching a Cartel goon and taking his gun, succeeding in escaping the Cartel compound and pursuing Catalina, who rides a helicopter towards the Cochrane Dam. Claude battles across the dam, and eventually succeeds in killing Catalina by shooting down the helicopter.
Prior to "GTA III", Catalina and Claude are known to have been on the move, committing robberies in multiple states, including the south, and the southwest, among others. In October 2001, the FBI discovers that both Catalina and Claude may have arrived at Liberty City. Catalina is of Dominican and

Salvatore is portrayed as increasingly paranoid and suspicious of everyone around him. After Claude has destroyed the Colombian Cartel's SPANK factory ship, with the help of 8-Ball under The Don's orders, he betrays and attempts to kill Claude with a trap, trying to establish a deal with the Colombian Cartel. Maria warns Claude of the car bomb and he avoids death. Maria reveals she had told Salvatore that she and Claude were an item which was another reason for Salvatore to kill him.

Developing a liking for Claude, she saves his life by preventing him from entering a death trap set up by Salvatore and seeks help from an associate, Asuka Kasen, to flee to Staunton Island. She is a caller on Chatterbox FM, describing her feelings for Claude, but expresses doubt because Claude was seen as being uninterested to her, "always working and hanging out with the guys".
Maria has an interest in leopard skin furniture (evidenced from her Chatterbox phone call), and also sports an outfit with tiger stripe patterns. She is later seen in clothing of a similar fashion in "Liberty City Stories".

Toni Cipriani is a member of the Leone family, working as a caporegime for Salvatore Leone. Early missions with Cipriani are primarily focused on extorting protection money from a Triad-controlled
laundromat, by destroying several of the business's delivery trucks. Coupled with a Triad attack during the transportation of the Leone family's high-ranked members to one of Don Salvatore's meetings, a full-blown war between the Leone family and the Liberty City Triads occurred, and Claude was now an enemy to the Triads. The war led to the destruction of the Triad Fish Factory, with Toni instructing Claude to deliver a garbage truck armed with a bomb to the factory.
Toni lives with his mother, Momma Cipriani, and is frequently seen in his family-run restaurant, Cipriani's Ristorante, providing jobs for Claude.

radio station, Chatterbox FM, and complain about his mother's constant bickering.

Michael Madsen.
