|Full name:||Norm Richards|
Three Unnamed Kids
|Main affiliation:||Michael De Santa|
|Voiced by:||Evan Neumann|
Norm idolizes Michael's criminal career and shows his excitement over working with him in heists, he will refer to him as "Boss" in a respectful tone, however he won't take any insults from the other crew members. He has low stats, will often use weaker weapons and his cut is only 7%.
Norm used to be a family man, with a wife and three little kids, but after he discovered that Michael died, he changed completely. He robbed a warehouse which earned him ten thousand dollars, which he promptly spent on drugs and prostitutes. He abandoned his family and never looked back. Norm has an extreme fandom for Michael, making compliments and praises every time that he is on a mission with him. He also seems to not care about anyone besides Michael, to the point that if he survives the covert approach of The Bureau Raid, he says the other team member probably survived more than he should, thanks to Michael's leadership.
Events of GTA V
If he is chosen as the gunman for the smart or loud approach of The Jewel Store Job, he will crash his bike before entering the sewer tunnels and be killed, dropping the jewels he was carrying, the bag can be collected after that. He will also get killed in the The Paleto Score when a police car will crush him against a wall, he will struggle for his life, asking Michael if he did him proud, but will end up dead anyway. His bag with the money of the score, can also be picked here, its near his body.
He will get killed in the covert approach of The Bureau Raid too, during the escape from the FIB building, an explosion will kill him instantly. However, is he is chosen along with Daryl Johns or Hugh Welsh, he or the other gunman, will die randomly in the explosion. So, if Norm is killed in the escape, just repeat the mission until he is the one who survives. In the roof approach, he can survive with no complications.
In The Big Score, subtle approach, Norm will have trouble loading the Gauntlet if he is selected as the first gunman, making the crew lost almost $18 million in gold, this can't be avoided even if he has experience from the FIB heist. If selected as the second gunman, there will be no consequences, regardless of his experience.
In the obvious aproach, Norm do a decent job being either the first or second gunman, its important to know that if he is the second gunman and doesn't have previously experience, there will be more chances of him dying during the shootout agaist the police. The player needs to protect him, so the heist doesn't have any casualities.
