Niko Bellic - GTA 4 Character

Niko Bellic is the Main Protagonist and playable character in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is also a supporting character in GTA IV: The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Born in 1978 Yugoslavia, Niko Bellic is the veteran protagonist of GTA IV.

During the war, Niko faced many tragedies, including his squadron being ambushed, leading to only 3 survivors. After the war, Niko turned to a life of crime, spending some time in prison. After his release from prison, he started working for a human trafficking ring led by Ray Bulgarin. After a boat carrying human cargo sank in the Adriatic Sea during a smuggling run, Niko managed to swim to safety, but the boat and cargo were lost. Bulgarin believed Niko had betrayed him and stole his money, so Niko joined the merchant navy to escape his wrath.

Persuaded by his cousin Roman, Niko moves to Liberty City to start a new life and pursue the "American Dream". However, he quickly finds out Roman's lies about the life in Liberty City, and begins to understand the true way of life in the USA.

Niko is a serious, calm, self-reflective character and possesses a deep intellect and strong moral guidance. He is very confident in his abilities and does not question himself about a job if it pays enough. Niko is also trained extensively in weapon use and hand-to-hand fighting.

Working for Roman, Niko ends up having to work for the Russian and Italian Mafias, doing work for Mikhail Faustin, Jimmy Pegorino and several others. Niko is eventually coerced to work with the IAA, who blackmails him into doing "country-protecting" work.
