=== Background ===
  +
Florian was born in [[1978]], in the same village that both Niko Bellic and [[Roman Bellic]] grew up in. In his adolescence he fought in the Yugoslav wars with Niko Bellic, was a childhood friend of Roman Bellic, and was deeply in the closet as a homosexual despite telling people he wanted to be a wrestler and a shepherd. He once worked in an abattoir, which he is ashamed of. Thus he was much less feminine than he became in later years, including having a more masculine voice (which is heard in [[Weekend at Florian's]], when he becomes very angry). In his last days in the war as a teenager, he joined Niko, [[Darko Brevic]], and [[Fifteen Man Squad|twelve other soldiers]] on a mission into enemy territory. Darko had secretly sold information to their enemies, and all twelve were killed with the exception of Niko, Darko and Florian.
   
=== Life up to [[2008]] ===
+
As early as 2001, Florian moved to Liberty City, where he changed his name to Bernie Crane (shunning "Florian Cravic" as if it were a split personality) and felt comfortable being an outward homosexual. At a foam party at the famous gay-club [[Hercules]] (opened in 1998 by [[Anthony Prince|"Gay" Tony Prince]]), he met Deputy Mayor [[Bryce Dawkins]], who he started dating afterwards. In 2003 and 2004, he was arrested for soliciting sex and holding ecstasy. He may have been dating Bryce at this time, as he ordered the LCPD not to harass Bernie in any way.

In 2008, Niko Bellic traveled to the US to track down Cravic. After much work for many crime syndicates, mobster [[Ray Boccino]] pointed Bellic in the direction of [[Talbot Daniels]], an associate of Cravic's. With [[Roman Bellic|Roman's]] help, Niko [[Weekend at Florian's|forced Talbot to direct him to Cravic's residence]]. When finally arriving, Niko and Roman broke into his apartment, and held Cravic at gun point. Bernie insisted that he is innocent and Niko is convinced, vowing to track down [[Darko Brevic]].

Bernie later asks Niko to help him, as he is constantly harrassed over his sexuality by everyone [[Hating the Haters|from common]] [[Skinheads|skinheads]] to Bryce's many blackmailers ([[Dimitri Rascalov]], a major [[Russian Mafia|Russian mobster]] and coincidentally [[Antagonist|a mortal enemy]] of Niko's, and to a lesser extent [[Thomas Stubbs III]], another politician who [[Knowing Me, Knowing You|bugged]] [[Infernus|Bryce's Infernus]] successfully without them knowing). Niko eliminates all of these problems, and Bernie eventually gives him the Infernus, both of them unbeknownst it was bugged. Bernie is seen one more time in person at [[Mr and Mrs Bellic |Roman's Wedding]] (it doesn't matter which choice the player makes, he appears in both), and throws confetti over Roman and [[Mallorie Bardas|Mallorie]]. He screams whether it is [[Kate McReary]] or Roman Bellic who gets killed during the shootout.

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Florian was born in 1978, in the same village that both Niko Bellic and Roman Bellic grew up in. In his adolescence he fought in the Yugoslav wars with Niko Bellic, was a childhood friend of Roman Bellic, and was deeply in the closet as a homosexual despite telling people he wanted to be a wrestler and a shepherd. He once worked in an abattoir, which he is ashamed of. Thus he was much less feminine than he became in later years, including having a more masculine voice (which is heard in Weekend at Florian's, when he becomes very angry). In his last days in the war as a teenager, he joined Niko, Darko Brevic, and twelve other soldiers on a mission into enemy territory. Darko had secretly sold information to their enemies, and all twelve were killed with the exception of Niko, Darko and Florian.

As early as 2001, Florian moved to Liberty City, where he changed his name to Bernie Crane (shunning "Florian Cravic" as if it were a split personality) and felt comfortable being an outward homosexual. At a foam party at the famous gay-club Hercules (opened in 1998 by "Gay" Tony Prince), he met Deputy Mayor Bryce Dawkins, who he started dating afterwards. In 2003 and 2004, he was arrested for soliciting sex and holding ecstasy. He may have been dating Bryce at this time, as he ordered the LCPD not to harass Bernie in any way.

Events of GTA IV Edit

In 2008, Niko Bellic traveled to the US to track down Cravic. After much work for many crime syndicates, mobster Ray Boccino pointed Bellic in the direction of Talbot Daniels, an associate of Cravic's. With Roman's help, Niko forced Talbot to direct him to Cravic's residence. When finally arriving, Niko and Roman broke into his apartment, and held Cravic at gun point. Bernie insisted that he is innocent and Niko is convinced, vowing to track down Darko Brevic.

Bernie later asks Niko to help him, as he is constantly harassed over his sexuality by everyone from common skinheads to Bryce's many blackmailers (Dimitri Rascalov, a major Russian mobster and coincidentally a mortal enemy of Niko's, and to a lesser extent Thomas Stubbs III, another politician who bugged Bryce's Infernus successfully without them knowing). Niko eliminates all of these problems, and Bernie eventually gives him the Infernus, both of them unbeknownst it was bugged. Bernie is seen one more time in person at Roman's Wedding (it doesn't matter which choice the player makes, he appears in both), and throws confetti over Roman and Mallorie. He screams whether it is Kate McReary or Roman Bellic who gets killed during the shootout.
