Claude is the silent main protagonist in the videogame Grand Theft Auto 3 and appears as a minor character in the 2004 video game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and in Grand Theft Auto Online. Very little is specifically known about Claude's past and his personality, as Claude himself doesn't speak much and never reveals any details about himself. He Is played by Tom Wilkinson.

History

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In 1992, Claude was the owner of a run-down garage in Doherty, San Fierro and a competer in various illegal races. At some point he encountered the small-time robber named Catalina and started a relationship with her after her "break-up" with Carl Johnson. Some time after meeting Catalina, Claude entered a race trough the forests of Red and Flint County where he lost to Catalinas ex-boyfriend CJ. After the loss Catalina and Claude left San Andreas and embarked on a cross-country crime spree.

In the years in-between San Andreas and GTA III, Claude and Catalina became affiliated with a Colombian drug cartel and did some errands for them.

Grand Theft Auto III

In 2001, Claude and Catalina arrived in Liberty City and took part in a bank robbery in the outskirts of Liberty City. While rushing through an alley, Catalina unexpectedly shot their unnamed accomplice, as well as Claude, leaving him for dead. Claude ended up in police custody but broke free when gang members assaulted the police van he was transported in. He encountered a injured fellow convict named 8-Ball who recommended him to Salvatore Leone, Liberty City's most prominent mob boss.

Claude did some odd-jobs for Leone until his wife, Maria Latore developed a fixation on him. Angered by the percieved affair, Leone organized an ambush on Claude who escaped to Staunton Island with Maria and her friend, Yakuza leader Asuka Kasen. During his time on Staunton Island Claude also started doing errands for a cannibalistic businessman named Donald Love. In an effort to get closer to Catalina, Claude and Love orchestrated the death of Asuka's brother Kenji and pushed the blame onto Catalina's drug cartel.

The war between the Yakuza and the cartel intensifies until Claude's actions attracts the attention of Catalina, who has Asuka and Miquel murdered, and abducts Maria. Claude finally confronts Catalina and kills her during a shootout. It is unknown if he killed Maria Latore when a gunshot is heard while the credits roll.

Appearance

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Claude has brown hair and brown eyes. He wears a dark gray vest and green trousers. In Grand Theft Auto III, he looks considerably older and his vest is now plain black.

An interesting thing is if the player kills Playboy X in Grand Theft Auto IV, they can find Claude's clothes in his safe house for Niko Bellic to wear. This had previously led to some fans to speculate Claude's fate by the events of the game or if he is still alive. However, Rockstar has stated that the GTA HD universe is entirely separated and unrelated with the GTA 3D universe.

Personality

Claude is a silent snake. Extremely cold-blooded, remorseless, and loathsome, he is willing to kill anyone in order to fulfill his goals and shows no true loyalty to anyone he encounters, as he betrayed almost every of his bosses (though many mobsters also betrayed him); the sole exception would be Catalina, but the latter ultimately double-crossed him as well. He remains calm in every circumstances and never speaks a word; he only grunts whenever he is hurt badly or drown.
