For those who played San Andreas, you know that Claude got together with Catalina, right? And you know what a complete psychopath that bitch is, right? And you know how the crazy bitch betrayed Claude at the beginning of GTA 3, right? Well, what I'm trying to understand is how in the f*ck did Claude survive nearly a full decade with that crazy bitch. I mean Claude is taciturn in both of his appearances in the GTA games and Catalina shouts out death threats over even the smallest situations. You'd think that Claude would already be dead by then. I mean think about it. Can you picture ANYBODY with Catalina for NINE f*ckING YEARS? Based on what I saw from her in GTA San Andreas, anyone who would be stupid enough to date her would not survive within a month, let alone nine f*cking years. What was Claude's secret of avoiding this death?

Oh my God, right? RIGHT? RIGHT?

 

Dude, the worst thing you can do as a new member is start a thread.

 

Anyway, Claude's relationship with Catalina was not well thought out. The whole San Andreas scenario happened after III's story development. Basically, Catalina used Claude until she didn't need him anymore.

According to the GTA wiki, Catalina and Claude spent the years between 1992-2001 on a journey through many american states, like Texas and New Mexico, doing bank robberies. When they reached Liberty City by 2001, Catalina betrays Claude (as we all know).

 

Catalina is stir crazy, but I guess that Claude as a character is kinda crazy too, but in another way. I guess their relationship were based on this, and having a certain love for crime in common. But I agree with you, a nine year relationship between the two seems pretty unbelievable. Bad script writing.

Well they're two criminals.. anything can simply click just like that between them.

Or it could be just business.

I guess their relationship was based on their love for crime, more likely business partners. I think Claude had a dominating personality, although he remains mute.

I'm sure there's some differences between dating a Neo-Nazi and dating a bank robber/serial killer.

 

But yeah, that's a good way to look at them - a modern day Bonnie & Clyde, going all over the place, robbing, etc.

There's no way they would last that long. But, they obviously did because III's story happened before SA (in game release order) and by the time of SA they just wanted to include Claude in the game for a cameo, without thinking too much about how it fits in the grand scheme of things. So that's probably why we have a 9 year long relationship between them that we can't explain.

If we had to rationalize it, they had the same passion for crime and it kept them together (though again, it would have really ended the way it did in a few months in reality).

Hell, maybe they broke up after San Andreas and got back together sometime before the events of III?

I think this might be it.
Or maybe Claude knew how to deal with Catalina. He doesn't talk too much, and Catalina might like that.
You know, maybe Deji is right, who can tell?

It only seems likely, seeing as it's mentioned in that newspaper that they went on a crime spree from the west coast to the east and I know it doesn't take nearly 10 years to get from one side of the country to the other, nor would any criminals like Claude/Catalina want to move that slowly.

I believe its because like as if Catalina just saw him as a cash cow and used him for until she's had enough of Claude and broke up with him.

Yeah, is obvious that Catalina is not exactly patient. Also, staying in one place is not their style. Catalina uses CJ to start robbing around in SA, but after that she leaves inmediatly, maybe to avoid getting caught by the police.
Maybe she uses Claude to get to Liberty City, she leaves him, and then, a little time before III, they get back together to start again with their crimes.

That seems very likely, either that or they're literally going back and forth, coast to coast, etc. with the robberies.

Maybe they aren't even a couple in the beggining of GTA III but they still work together. Newspappers can lie.

Catalina makes a lot of assumptions. Claude probably used her as a crime partner and sex toy. Nothing wrong with that.

That's a good question. Seeing as how that Columbian woman is crazy and homicidal, you'd think Claude would already be dead by then. Then again, he doesn't talk much and is probably the most obsequious character ever.

After reading the playboy article about Sam houser Catalina reminded me of Dave Jones think about it they worked together for a few years then split up dating was "business" then they left because they thought that they were too "small time"

She always seemed horny and passionate around Claude. Whereas with Carl, she was horny and psychotic.  Despite her being a psycho, I'd still imagine passion and love could overcome such a thing. But passion can ware off, and after 9 year together, Catalina feels she'd do better without Claude.

Perhaps they would take constant breaks to lay low, meeting up a year later to continue robbing. Much like the comedy Bad Santa, where the crooks meet up yearly to pull off a heist. Catalina and Claude could have met up every year and to pull off a series of robberies, with the bank robbery at the beginning of GTA III just being another year of business.

 

Also, remember how Catalina broke up with CJ, only to remain as 'business partners' as they continued robbing businesses. This could also have been the case for both Catalina and Claude. If I remember correctly, the only thing that indicates that they're still together in GTA III is the newspaper shown in the intro, which could have just been added to the headlines of the Liberty Tree to add a twist to the story, or just assumption.
