Over the last month or so, Rockstar has been gradually introducing us to various characters from Liberty City found in The Ballad of Gay Tony
. We first met
Tony price (aka Gay Tony) back at the beginning of September and learned about his problems. The following week, Weazel News clued us in
to some of the weapons (including the mystery helicopter) that will be showing up in the city. Finally, just last week we were able to meet
the owner of said chopper, Mr. Yusuf Amir, one bad-ass dude with a heck of a temper.
Today, Rockstar gives us an intro to Henrique Bardas and Armando Torres, good friends of Luis Lopez, the main bad boy in The Ballad of Gay Tony. These guys remind me of some of the dudes from Entourage, albeit with guns and a bad attitude. In the second half of the clip, we get some quality time with Brian Jeremy who is a vet of the Lost Motorcycle Club and also the club's secretary. As usual, both video s have some good stuff in them.
Check out some info from Rockstar on the characters after the jump:
Today we are happy to share a brand-new character clip from Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City. The first half of the clip introduces you to Henrique Bardas and Armando Torres, two long-time friends of Luis Lopez, main protagonist in The Ballad of Gay Tony. The latter half of the clip is rounded out by Brian Jeremy, Club Secretary and veteran member of The Lost Motorycle Club from The Lost and Damned, the first downloadable episode for Grand Theft Auto IV and half of the Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City package. Check out their full bios below, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Luis Lopez, Henrique Bardas and Armando Torres have been friends for their entire lives, growing up together on the streets of East Holland and Northwood. After years of small-time hustles, Luis caught a lucky break when he started working for club owner Tony Prince, eventually becoming manager of his two clubs, Hercules and Maisonette 9, while Armando and Henrique are proud to stay local, slinging drugs on the same street corners they did as kids. Loyal to the core, Armando and Henrique are both bemused by and envious of Luis’ change in status.
Brian Jeremy is a veteran member of The Lost Motorcycle Club and serves as the Club Secretary. Brian lives and breathes The Lost, and his dogged loyalty to the gang’s incarcerated leader, Billy Grey, borders on the creepy and obsessive. Brian detests Johnny Klebitz, Billy’s second-in-command, which has created a rift in the gang. Brian isn’t at all happy with the way Johnny has run the club in Billy’s absence, especially the truce he has negotiated with their long-term rival biker gang, The Angels of Death. When Billy returns, the antagonism between Johnny and Brian will worsen to a point of no return. Eventually, one of them will have to go.
