It appears to me that the three protagonists are intended to be representitive of the three fundemental components of the human psyche (the id, the ego and the super ego). Franklin appears to be a man with a strong ego who thinks of the long term benefits of his actions and does things that will be the most rewarding to him despite how ethical these actions may be and Trevor is a man driven primarily by the primative id and like all psychopaths is lacking of the moral super ego which is why he depends on Michael (representative of the super ego) who strikes a balance between him and the over logical Franklin. This also fits well with the player's differing play styles and personalities.
I don't know. To me the three protagonists represent the three types we've seen in the main Grand Theft Auto storyline throughout every game.
We have Trevor who seems to mirror the psychotic and cold-blooded killers that Claude and Tommy were.
Then there is Franklin, the younger protagonist with ambition. The all-around guy, the "Jack of all aces." He has the most options gameplay wise, so I see him as "CJ" - metaphorically of course.
Last but not least we have Micheal. The older protagonist, more serious and mature. He's the one with the serious life-style and story, possibly even dark - resembling what we had with Niko in IV.
So we are given three protagonists; three different themes and personalities to play with that we have grown used to through the years.
