  • What We Know About the GTA 6 Characters


    Vlad

    The GTA series has stood out over the years for its immersive play, stunning graphics, and, most importantly, its memorable characters. With each new installment of the game, Rockstar Games manages to introduce a diverse cast of exciting characters that captivate players and bring the virtual world to life.

    From morally ambiguous anti-heroes like Niko Bellic to the eccentric trio Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, players get to experience protagonists with depth and personality.

    Lucky for us, GTA 6 is no different. The official trailer reveal gave us our first look at the game's new protagonist, Lucia. Plus, we met several other characters, including the main male lead.

    So, after over a decade of waiting, fans can't wait to get to know the new GTA 6 characters. If that sounds like you, we can help.

    In this article, we'll walk you through everything you need to know about the characters.

    GTA VI Main Protagonists

    Right off the bat, let's dive into what we know about the protagonists of GTA 6. According to the trailer and recent leaks, Rockstar decided to continue with the trend of multiple playable characters that started with GTA 5.

    So, with this new edition of the game, we'll have two main characters, Lucia and Jason.

    Main Female Protagonist

    If you've been a fan of the GTA series for a while, you know that there has never been a female main protagonist. However, thankfully, this will change with the sixth installment of the game.

    Enter Lucia, a Latina with a big brain and an affinity for getting into trouble. In the first few seconds of the trailer, we see our female protagonist speaking to a counselor at the Leonida Department of Correction.

    We also see her in an orange jumpsuit, which means she's likely had a few run-ins with the law. Although we don't know much about the reason she's in jail, you can spot her committing armed robbery in the trailer. 

    Some fans speculate that Lucia is part of a larger gang. They also insinuate that our female lead is the youngest member of the group and doesn't particularly enjoy the crime aspect of her upbringing.

    Other rumors portray Lucia as the brains of the operation. She's in charge of aspects like technology and hacking, which poses an interesting storyline.

    That's because a tech-savvy genius will fit right into a modern-day Vice City. We can imagine Lucia delving into the manipulation of the crypto market and hacking her way through firewalls.

    While we can't confirm these rumors, they paint an exciting storyline for the first female protagonist in GTA history.

    Finally, Lucia narrates the official trailer and is supposedly talking to the main male protagonist.

    Main Male Protagonist

    By the end of the GTA 6 trailer, we meet our male protagonist. Although his official name was never announced, fans all over the globe refer to him as Jason.

    Sadly, the character's name isn't the only aspect shrouded in mystery. Rockstar Games has been especially tight-lipped about the backstory of GTA 6's main male protagonist. The company has yet to tell us what his objectives are or how he came to meet Lucia.

    However, we can deduce a few details about the character from the trailer. For example, we know he likes fishing, is addicted to cigarettes, and rides ATVs. Nima, a PS Dev, outlined on X that mini-games (such as fishing) play an important role in the game.

    Based on the leaked clips of GTA 6, Lucia and Jason seem to be in a relationship and have a Bonnie and Clyde-like backstory. According to Nima, the two characters live in the same house.

    Switching Between the Two Main Protagonists

    Rockstar Games aims to make its games as interactive and entertaining as possible. That's why the company introduced the character switch mechanic in GTA 5.

    This allows players to jump from one protagonist to the other with a click of a button. All you have to do is press the 'Down' button on your D-Pad.

    However, you can also progress naturally from one character to the other by following the storyline. Let us explain.

    At the start of the game, you get to choose between a male and a female character. Jason will reportedly hit the ground running in a South American City based on Rio de Janeiro.

    As for Lucia, chances are her story will start in Vice City. Then, as the game progresses, the two protagonists will cross each other's paths in-game.

    At that point, the game switches over to the other character, giving players access to the entire map. These theories match pretty well the latest info we got from Nima. The PS Dev posted on X that GTA 6 starts with a robbery mission. He also claims that the map in the game evolves over time.

    Grand Theft Auto 6 Side Characters

    Even though the trailer mostly focused on Lucia, it gave us glimpses of a few other characters. For instance, we see Stefanie, who appears to be a correctional facility counselor.

    She seems to care for Lucia and tries to connect with her but to little success. Fans have also collected a list of potential characters. Here's a quick look at some of the most notable names:

    ●      Dale (Dale's Shopwell)

    ●      Chester (Chester's Music)

    ●      Iris (Iris Laundry)

    ●      Dre (Nightclub Manager)

    ●      Tit (Nightclub DJ)

    ●      YJ (Minimap)

    ●      Billy

    ●      Boobie

    ●      Zach

    ●      Vicky

    ●      Danny

    ●      Sam

    ●      Wyman

    ●      Shanese

    ●      Kai

    ●      RB Shaw

    Special Characters

    According to the GTA 6 leaks, players will run into a few special characters while they're exploring Vice City. One of the most interesting theories comes from a 4Chan thread. The rumor suggests that there will be equivalents of Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos in the latest edition of GTA.

    We don't know the charterers' names, but the two appear to have an ongoing feud over government-owned launchpads.

    Each party wants the property for their respective space companies, and mischief ensues. As a player, you'll get to pick sides, and your choices will affect how the story unfolds. Nima revealed that the NPCs in GTA6 will remember you and your choices. Cops too!

    Wrapping Up

    Thanks to the official trailer and recent leaks, we met quite a few GTA 6 characters. The list starts with Lucia, the first female protagonist in GTA history.

    We were also introduced to Jason, the main male character, in the final few seconds of the trailer. Other than that, there are many side characters like Stefanie, Billy, and Kai that we can look forward to meeting.
