'''Ivan Bytchkov''' (Russian: Иван Бычков) is character in the ''[[Grand Theft Auto]]'' series, appearing as a minor character in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', and a cameo character in ''[[The Lost and Damned]]''. Based on the player's actions, Ivan can also be a [[Random Characters|random character]].
Ivan first appeared during the opening cutscene of [[Bull in a China Shop]], having just concluded a meeting with Vladimir Glebov and leaves just as [[Niko Bellic]] enters.
 
   
Later, Vlad orders Niko [[Ivan The Not So Terrible|to execute him]] by [[Mikhail Faustin]]'s command. Niko's hunt for Ivan leads him to a rooftop chase, during which Ivan warns Niko that Vlad is a nobody, and that killing him for him is pointless. Ivan takes a bad step and dangles off the edge of a destroyed fire escape. At this point, Ivan can be killed or helped back up.
+
Ivan is a member of the [[Faustin Bratva]] led by [[Mikhail Faustin]], and is a personal henchman of [[Vladimir Glebov]]. Within the crime syndicate, Ivan works both as an enforcer and as a burglar.
   
If the player chooses to spare Ivan, Niko meets him later on the streets of [[Alderney]] as a [[random character]]. Ivan now lives there and is engaged with a new job as a "money lender." Niko helps Ivan collect a debt from several hustlers who choose not to repay him. They attempt to kill Ivan but Niko saves him. Ivan thanks him and is never to be seen again. During the mission [http://gta.wikia.com/Liquidize_the_Assets Liquidize the Assets] though, Jon Gravelli says that Ivan the Goddamn Terrible is dealing drugs with the Ancelottis.
