Far from gritty industrial Alderney and glitzy and glamorous Algonquin is Broker, the shady and dreaded borough sharing it's isle with neighboring Dukes.
Filled with a variety of areas ranging from gang-filled housing projects to Eastern European neighborhoods, Broker is a place where crime flows through the streets almost the same as hundreds of cars do each day.
It is precisely in Broker where we find the Faustin Family, an ambitious Russian Bratva ruled by Mikhail Faustin and his brother for life, Dimitri Rascalov. The family has managed to stay out of major trouble for 15 years, maintaining strong business relationships with other mobs and staying two steps ahead of the police.However, when Mikhail returns from a trip to the home country with a mysterious new ideology in his head, the family will have to put all differences behind themselves and join themselves in an attempt to fix every mistake Mikhail makes, which will not prove to be an easy task.
The family will have to attempt to fix everything up, for better...
Or for worse.
The protagonist of From Russia Without Mercy.
Sergei was born in 1978, in Moscow, Russia, making him 30 and effectively the 3rd oldest protagonist of Grand Theft Auto IV.
His father had worked closely with the Faustin's in Russia, and upon his death, Mikhail took Sergei and his sister in, and moved to Liberty City in 1993, exploiting a loophole in the immigration treaty.
In Liberty City, Sergei was raised in a life of violent crime, and trained in several fighting arts and weapon mastery. Mikhail made him his bodygaurd, and later the enforcer of the Faustin Family.
In gameplay, Sergei is much more skilled in weaponry and severely more athletic. He can run longer and faster, jump several types of ledges, and has increased aim and precision. He does not shake at all when wielding a sniper and looking through the scope, and can control recoil severely much more than previous protagonists.
Psychologically, Sergei is cold and distant, having been raised in the ruthless and brutal world of Russian organized crime, and having been trained for the only purpose of killing and beating people. He is pessimistic about the world and pretty much everything, and doesn't be;ieve much in "redemption" or "absolving sins", which is why he doesn't propose himself at all to leave the life he's living.
Previously appeared in Grand Theft Auto IV in No Love Lost, and Mr. and Mrs. Bellic. He and Lionel also briefly appeared in The Lost and Damned, during Roman's Holiday.
For a list of Sergei's clothing, see here.
Mikhail Faustin was born in 1963 in Russia, in what was the Soviet Union at that time. During the Cold War, in 1987, he met Dimitri Rascalov in a Siberian prison camp, and both became friends and eventually "brothers for life".
Mikhail protected Dimitri inside from various assaults, and kept him alive until both escaped.
Faustin began criminal activity with Rascalov after the end of the war, begging "selling hash to tourists in Red Square."
In 1993, he moved to Liberty City, upon the fall of The Berlin Wall, although many Mafia families had already moved to America, amongst them, the Petrovic Family.
He moved in with 15 year-old Sergei, his 13 year-old sister, his own sons Anna and Rustam, and his wife, Ilyena.
His family, although weak, maintained several properties and loan-sharking businesses in Liberty City, and managed to manatin itself for 15 years with steadily growing power.
In late 2008, Mikhail would eventually be killed by Niko Bellic, under the orders of his very own brother-for-life, Dimitri Rascalov.
Dimitri Rascalov was born in 1969, in Moscow, Russia (At the time, the Soviet Union), and was not a muscular, angry man, but more of a calm, smart man which eventually would make him rise to power in Liberty City.
In 1987, during the Cold War, he met Mikhail Faustin in a prison camp in Siberia, and both befriended and became "brothers for life".
After the end of the war, both began criminal activity activity and rose to power quickly.
In 1993, Dimitri moved with Faustin and the family to Liberty City, exploiting a loophole in the immigration treaty.
Although the family was weak at first, establishing loan sharking operations in Hove Beach and the rest of South Broker, the Faustin's quickly moved along the criminal ladder.
Over the years, Dimitri and Mikhail began to doubt each-other, and Dimitri began to become more and more greedy, and eventually killed Faustin secretly in late 2008, and blamed on a Serbian working for the Faustin's, Niko Bellic.
Close friend of Dimitri, and again very questionable.
He was not related to the Faustin Bratva in Liberty City until early 2008, as he previously had only worked in slave trafficking and illegal smuggling in the Adriatic and Russia. He is a key part in the diamond and gold deal. Killed in the penultimate mission, by Luis Lopez.
Close friend of Sergei since childhood. Also works in the Faustin Bratva, yet at a less important position than Sergei's. Accompanies you during many missions.
Henry is Sergei's 'friend in the courts', a not-so-clean attorney working at The Broker Courthouse. He helps Sergei and the family avoid time, along with other criminal organizations.
Sergei can call Henry for him to remove a wanted level of up to four stars. This does not work during certain missions.
Head of a car stealing ring in Dukes. He is picked up and later gives you Dimayev's Car Thefts. After his death, one can take them from his assistant/lackey: Mike.
Accomplice of Mikhail, gives you the instruction of helping him kidnap Roman and Niko Bellic, the people who killed Vlad. Killed during the exact same mission.
Leonid "Lenny" Petrovic
Lenny is the first official contact with the Petrovic Mob after Mikhail made Sergei take their cocaine. Sergei begins to do some chump work for him in order to fix the bad relationship between the Petrovics and the Faustins. In person, Lenny is a rather happy-go-lucky guy who usually just does some work in car smuggling for his dad, Kenny.
Konstatin "Kenny" Petrovic
Kenny is the hot-headed Pakhan of the Petrovic Bratva. Aside from his criminal work, he tends to frequent strip clubs and brothels in his words to "clean up his wife's mess". He frequently is accompanied by his personal assassin, Rami Yalon.
A mysterious, cold Russian Terrorist. His voice is calm and deep, his eyes have a cold look, and his emotions are undecipherable. He could be saying that the government is rotten first, and later say that the world needs f*cking up. No one really knows what he is up to, but he seems to trust Adam and Sergei enough to provide him with weapons out of his truck.
Main character of Grand Theft Auto IV. He is kidnapped on Mikahil's orders, and then begins to do work for the family. Eventually , he ends up killing Lenny Petrovic on Mikahil's orders, sparking a full blown gang war with the Petrovics.
Seen first in To Serbia with Love, To Serbia With Love and briefly mentioned later in the game.
Luis Fernando Lopez:
Main protagonist of The Ballad of Gay Tony.
Seen during the diamond deal near the Platypus. He and Gay Tony conspired to steal Bulgarin's diamonds, which makes him a high priority target.
Niko Bellic's cousin.
Kidnapped in To Serbia With Love along with his cousin, Niko Bellic.
Sergei's sister. Despite the fact that both were raised in similar conditions, Alexandra, having spent more time with Ilyena Faustin, did not fall into a life of crime, and went to study for a Medical Degree in Los Santos, San Andreas.
She occasionally e-mails Sergei, and hopes that he will one day "leave the life he lives" and "do something that works".
Drang "The Muscle" Johnson
Drang is the doorman of Perestroika, who lacks in brains but makes up in brute force. He usually complains that he's at Perestroika and not somewhere like Maisonette 9. He tends to claim that he's moving to some nightclub in Algonquin, but everyone knows he's not going anywhere.
Spied on during Closeted Photographer, as Dimitri wants to extort money out of Bryce Dawkins, his rumored gay boyfriend.
