~ Agent 14 to the protagonists.

GTA Online Protagonists are the main protagonists (to the player) of Grand Theft Auto Online.

His or her appearance is created by the player's choice and the majority of the time they commit crimes and villainous acts such as murder, stealing, and even sometimes attacking the Military Base which is highly illegal in Los Santos.

The player can alter the character's lifestyle choices, such as time spent sleeping and exercising; this creates the initial stats for the characters and slightly changing their appearance including mental illness, driving skills, shooting/aiming skills, stealth, piloting skills and strength.

Players can also take on missions given by many people in Los Santos. They can choose what apartments, houses and garages they live in, owning firearms, owning vehicles and even getting different contacts from people. Players can do contracts with companies such as Merryweather and Pegasus, having a mechanic to work for them and getting different contacts on your phone as well as getting strippers from the strip clubs to lap dance for them at their home.


The protagonist is born at a time prior to the game to two parents; their father can be chosen to be Claude, Niko Bellic, or John Marston. Very little is known about the player's background, other than that they met Lamar Davis on Lifeinvader and took a flight to Los Santos, presumably just to take part in a street race in Vinewood organized by Lamar himself. The player doesn't return to their former home and instead stays in Los Santos to continue their life.

GTA Online

The player meets Lamar when he picks him/her up after the arrival in Los Santos from the airport. They became close friends.

They enter Lamar's Emperor, where he gives the player a pistol and welcomes them to the city. If the player is female, a different cutscene is shown where Lamar attempts to hit on her but ends up failing. Lamar drives the player to Vinewood parking lot, where they begin a race, potentially with other players competing. Regardless of who becomes victorious in the race, Lamar sees further potential in the person and introduces them to Gerald, a drug runner living in Davis. Gerald immediately employs the character by asking them to ambush a drug deal between the Ballas and the Vagos and return the product to him.

As the protagonist gains more and more reputation in the city, he/she is noticed and even employed by more powerful people in the criminal underworld such as Martin Madrazo and Lester Crest, being given increasingly difficult and expensive jobs for a great amount of money and will do it calmly. They are hired to do a grand span of criminal activities, ranging from wiping out crime gangs, committing aircraft theft, infiltrating a chemical research facility and saving humanity from the destruction of the world through nuclear warfare. The player goes from a small-time criminal to a powerful figure in organized crime.


It is unknown what happened to the protagonist by the time GTA V takes place. Lester still seems to be in touch with him/her and even considered for them to help out in the jewelry store robbery.

In the later updates of GTA Online, it can be argued that the protagonist was still at large by the time the events of GTA V took place, since Agent 14 stated in a Gunrunning mission that it was 2017 (GTA V takes place in 2013, hinting that Online takes place in real time). However, this may be non-canon, or a mistake on Agent 14's performer's part.


The Player is very calm and silent when dealing with their bosses and business partners. They are also a extremely level-headed individual able to keep their cool and is impossible to intimidate. The Protagonists are very intelligent, cunning and strategic master planners as the player able to start and build a extremely successful lucrative criminal empire and able to manage multiple businesses at one as well as efficiently planning their heists and jobs very successfully. They are very extremely well-organized and professional . The player can choose how their character lives their lifestyle and actions. They can be a quiet, very calm and collected individuals or be extremely destructive, violent and ruthless who craves destruction and likes killing people.
