24. Trevor Philips
When we first met Trevor, his role as an avatar for our very worst instincts seemed obvious. If we felt guilty driving dangerously as the other protagonists, here was Trevor to give us license to mount the pavement with impunity. More than a sadistic brute, he serves as Rockstar's wry commentary on our capacity for savagery as players.
Iconic Moment: "What kind of a fucking animal do you take me for? No, I didn't kill him... But I did kidnap his wife!"
