Donald "Don" Percival is a minor character in Grand Theft Auto V.
Percival is an Ex-Navy Seal who founded Merryweather in 2003 using money from a coup in Western Africa. He floated Merryweather on the BAWSAQ stock exchange three years ago, and is now expanding domestic operations to appease shareholder demand. Percival is also lobbying the US government for a new war in the Middle East, Asia, Africa or France to help turn the economy around. He recently teamed up with Vinewood actor Bruce Spade as he seeks to follow up his humanitarian work in war zones with military action.
Events of GTA V
He started to hold a grudge against Michael De Santa and Trevor Phillips after they have been ruining their reputation by stealing precious cargo his militia was guarding. After completing the game on the "Death wish" ending, he will send both of the characters an e-mail explaining that he is glad that they killed Devin Weston because he was able to buy his shares in the company and which he anticipated would earn him a lot of money but also warns them to "not fuck with [him] again".

- In the mission "The Big Score (Obvious)", Lester will mention Percival when shooting down the Merryweather helicopters, but the subtitles misspell his name as "Perceval".
