As a child, Franklin often heard stories about how his father was violent and physically abusive towards his mother, possibly causing her to turn to cocaine to escape being abused.
Franklin’s father left his mother while she was still pregnant with Franklin.
His mother’s addiction eventually led to her death when Franklin was a little boy.
After the death of his grandparents, Franklin and his aunt Denise moved into a house on Forum Drive left to them by Franklin’s grandmother in her will.
A few months before the start of his story, Franklin moved beyond the role of ghetto-based street dealer when he and Lamar began working for Armenian businessman Simeon Yetarian.
Michael De Santa, formerly Michael Townley, is one of the three protagonists in Grand Theft Auto V, along with Franklin Clinton and Trevor Philips.
Now a family man, Michael began to question his criminal lifestyle, much to Trevor’s annoyance, describing him as being “Soft.” A few years later, Trevor met a fellow crook named Brad Snider and introduced him to Michael.
According to Trevor, Brad planned at one point to cut off Michael and work solely with Trevor.
Michael made a clandestine agreement with the FIB to cut ties with Trevor and Brad in exchange for government protection.
By accepting the deal with the FIB, Michael informed Norton of their upcoming robbery in Ludendorff, where Michael will pretend to be shot by Norton, while Norton would actually kill Trevor and arrest Brad. The plan would favor both Michael and Norton, whereas Michael will walk away with a clean slate, Norton would be given a career boost for taking down the supposed “Most Wanted Man in America”.
Jimmy is the son of Michael and Amanda, and the younger brother of Tracey. He was put into the Witness Protection Program with his family in 2004 after his father Michael faked his death during a failed heist in Ludendorff, North Yankton.
Jimmy is first introduced at the end of the Franklin and Lamar mission where he purchases a yellow BeeJay XL SUV from Simeon Yetarian’s dealership. Later during the same mission, “Complications,” he is heard playing a first-person shooter game when Franklin breaks into Michael De Santa’s home to repossess the BeeJay XL that Jimmy bought earlier.
In the mission Father/Son Jimmy calls his father to inform him that the family Marquis yacht has been stolen and he is trapped inside the boat. Jimmy tried to sell the boat for drug money but the “buyers” decided to steal the boat instead. Michael and Franklin race after him in Amanda’s Sentinel after the yacht; which is being transported on a trailer down the freeway. They manage to rescue Jimmy, who was hanging on the boom, but they lose the yacht.
