Can we consider claude Italian?

Salvatore says he’ll be a made man. It’s an Italian thing as far as i know. Gta Wiki says he’s an american but no confirmation or anything, is there? So I’m thinking since Salvatore makes that promise, Claude has to be an Italian?

I think there have been threads on his ethnicity before. He might be Italian... or he might not.

 

He's certainly not black. Some have said that his appearance appears a bit Asian or Native American. He may or may not be of Latin American origin; Latin America is a big place with people of many different races/ethnicities.

 

Like much of his background, I think his ethnicity was left to interpretation to the player. The made man thing is definitely indicative that he may be Italian, who knows.

HOW'S ANNIE?

 

"he ain't Italian and he's no mechanic, but he can get things fixed."

 

Joey seems to believe otherwise. Sal's promise of being "made" was likely just him leading Claude along. I think Sal distrusted Claude from the get-go.

Exactly, the Sicilian mafia doesn't make just about any freelancer hitman into one of their made men unless they're of Italian descendant (and probably vow to always stick with them too).

 

Salvatore probably lied to Claude about having him made.

Yeah, and besides, we all know what happened last time a non-Italian tried to become a made man in the Leone family by double crossing their rival gang.

Yeah, but except it wasn't about race, it was about loyalty. Sal didn't trust JD.

 

But in Claude's case, I believe Sal already sold him out to the Colombians sometime between "Cutting The Grass" and "Bomb Da Base: Act I" (but that's just my thinking).

Claude is essentially a very useful mercenary.

FYI - Claude is a French name. He comes from San Fierro (which was based on San Francisco) so this makes it even more credible

Actually...

He’s a bank robber with a noisy and psychotic girlfriend. More than that, it is hard to say. Definitely a drifter, probably from the west coast, new to Liberty City. Surname may or may not be Speed.

He would have to be pretty dumb to think he was being made despite not being Italian. I guess that's up to you though.. Salvatore must've thought he was that stupid.

I think he is a French or Deutsch (German) because of his name.

I've seen Americans, Brits and Canadians with the name Claude.

 

Funny enough in Mexico, English language first names are a thing, though only since the 1990s.

salvatore was just liyin to claude to manipulate him...the mafia just used him as a cleaner. joey says clearly claude isn't italian so he's probably intended to be some average american. gta 3 is the only gta where the protagonist is you the player. that's why they made him mute and silent and never specified his ethinicity or story, so everyone can relate to him
