From Grand Theft Auto IV
Niko Bellic is the protagonist in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is an Eastern European immigrant who was persuaded to move to Liberty City to live the "American Dream" by his cousin Roman. He fled his country in Europe due to some enemies he had made during his years as a criminal. This is his first time in Liberty City and he doesn't know anyone there except his cousin, who claimed to be living a rich life, but instead broken in debts and in trouble from local gangs.
