In San Andreas, when you beat Claude at a race where you meet Wu Zi Mu, you get a garage in Doherty, thus making you fix up the trash heap. Throughout the game Catalina calls you and says dumb things to CJ. One time she calls she was ment to actually call Claude, but called CJ instead. Claude isn't a mute to talk on the phone. He can't make sound effects in the background and have conversations with Claude unless he had a voice. Catalina also knows the his name is Claude. He must've told her! Claude, a mute? No. My opinion, he chooses not to talk. sly.gif

And just why would he choose not to talk?
Maybe R* didn't want him to talk.

Also, Catalina was Claude's girlfriend in GTA III. So, she must have known his name since then.

Who says Claude and Catalina even talk on the phone? People call Claude, Claude doesn't call others. He doesn't talk.

How can Claude talk on the phone? If he was a mute Catalina wouldn't call Claude. She calls CJ thinking she called Claude at one part of the game saying 'Oh Claude, I miss you so much!' or something like that, and CJ says 'Nah, it's CJ...'.

She didn't accidentally ring Carl, she rang him on purpose to make him feel jealous.

In my opinion, rahkstar2.gif made Claude a mute to cease arguments over the fact why he didnt previously talk in GTA3.

GTA 3 is based 9 years after SA

I've always thought the reason he never talked in GTA 3 is because catalina shot him in the throat in the beginning.

& the reason he doesn't talk in SA is he never gets a chance, catalina's too busy telling carl off. If i remember right- before catalina started hitting carl's zr350, he was talking to someone.

Here's an idea:

In 1992 when Catalina and him met, he could talk. Just because he didn't talk in the while we saw him in SA doesn't mean he couldn't.

Maybe something happened in those 9 years that made him mute. monocle.gif

The "logic" that Catalina expects Claude to talk on the phone is hilarious when you remember how many times Claude silently listens to phone calls in GTA3.

From what we have seen, Claude is a mute. We have no actual proof of him talking.

I think that R* didn't want to give Claude a voice actor in GTA III. In GTA1 and GTA2, they never made the playable characters speak. That doesn't mean that they were mute. The guys whom you get jobs from spoke though. R* just continued the tradition in GTA III. The storyline was extended upto San Andreas. It wouldn't have looked nice if Claude suddenly spoke then.

So we can only speculate for now. Whether Claude is really mute or not.

Claude did in one mission start to talk and got cut off. We have no proof that he is Mute.

As for his nationality, this has been discussed before. His actor in GTA2's movie was Brittish. Maybe he is Brittish born to a French family.

How can he be mute? Wasn't he the main character in Liberty City? Didn't he speak in that?

When people say he's a mute, that doesn't necessarily mean he is. People just call him that because he's never spoke in any of the GTA games. Besides, I think that's Rockstar's way of being a bit original and having debate over the fact that no-one's has actually heard his voice.

_Claude doesn't have the chance to talk.
_He doesn't want to talk.
_ rahkstar2.gif Didn't remember that SA was before GTA 3 so they didn't put him voice.
_Catalina doesn't let claude to talk.
_Claude is afraid of Catalina so he doesn't talk.
_ rahkstar2.gif wanted to f*ck us by not putting voice to Claude tounge2.gif

is it one of those?

I'd go with that one. tounge.gif

That is, however, just my personal opinion - doesn't mean to say I'm right.

well he didnt talk in GTA III and he doesnt talk in GTA SA... one way of looking at it is maybe R* wanted to show the contrast between the extrovert, lively and very talkative Catalina and her rather timid, boyfriend who doesnt talk much. Just cuz he doesnt say anything dont mean he's a mute, just that R* didnt pay much emphasis on him as a character since maybe we'd be too interested and involved with his boisterous girlfriend Catalina instead of him

Also, I doubt she'd be with someone who couldn't speak. How would she know what his favorite food was? biggrin.gif
