Introducing the final of three playable characters in GTA V – Franklin
So we don’t have long left to wait now and i’m sure you’ve been enjoying our weekday articles in our bid to keep you from going crazy until Grand Theft Auto V comes out. In this article we look at the last of our three protagonists, Franklin. So, who is Franklin?
Date of Birth: 1980’s
Background: Franklin is the youngest of our three protagonists and doesn’t have any family, have any money nor any decent education. A drug dealer in his early years, Franklin decided to give up his life in the ghetto, after being released from prison, and take up a job working for the an Armenian gangster named Simeon Yetarian. Franklin repossesses cars that have been defaulted by the owner and he’ll regularly be the man to go around and pick up payments that are due.
Bringing you up to present day, Franklin want’s to get involved further into the criminal world and that is where he meets Michael. Both men did a job together and Michael has seen some potential in Franklin, and as they say, the rest is history.
Franklin and Michael will build up a father-son relationship, as Michael will coach Franklin in the criminal side of things, whilst Franklin will coach Michael in life. Franklin will no doubt have a decision to make at some point within the game as his friends want him to step back into his gang shoes, however he may want to rise up the criminal chain with Michael. I suppose only time will tell.
Special Ability: Like Michael and Trevor, Franklin has a special ability. Although Franklin doesn’t have any decent education behind him, he is still extremely smart and this, along with his physical prowess, is something that Michael and Trevor lack. Franklin is like the Stig behind the wheel and his special ability comes to life when driving as he can slow down time.
