"You can't always tell who the good guys are. I'm not a good guy, but I'm fighting with them..."
― The U.L. Paper Contact

The Contact is a senior agent working for United Liberty Paper who appears as a main character in Grand Theft Auto IV. He also appears in Grand Theft Auto V as a minor character.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

The United Liberty Paper Contact, at some point prior to 2008, became a secret government agent and started working for the United Liberty Paper, later revealed to be a front for the International Affairs Agency (IAA). He mentions a past military career in the U.S. Army.

Events of GTA IVEdit

The Contact blackmails Niko to work with the U.L. Paper after Niko finds out that his girlfriend, Michelle (Karen), was an agent assigned to monitor him. The Contact then gives Niko several tasks that usually include killing people that are "supposedly" linked to a powerful terrorist group. He also has him cover up some of U.L. Paper's activities, such as by killing a man who knew of the Organization, killing another man who funded terrorist plots and stealing a helicopter from the terrorist group to kill yet another man who funded the group's activities.

During the course of the mission line for The Contact, he tells Niko that, in repayment for his cooperation, he will find the man that Niko came to America to find. He ends up keeping that promise towards the end of the game when he has Darko Brevic delivered to Francis International Airport for Niko to deal with him.

Events of GTA VEdit

"Put the weapons down, boys. Fun time is over. We've got you. Anti-American activity."
― The U.L. Paper contact in 2013.
CharlesDoberman-GTAV

The Contact as he appears in 2013.

The contact (credited as United Paper Man) makes his first appearance in GTA V at the end of the mission Monkey Business, where he, along with two soldiers, discovers FIB agent Steve Haines, who shot himself in the leg so that Michael De Santa and Dave Norton could get away with the chemical agent they had stolen.

He appears again later in the mission The Wrap Up. Here, he shows up to the stand off between De Santa, Norton, Haines, and Agent Sanchez, alongside several IAA agents. Then, corrupt FIB agents show up, compromising the situation even further, and then Merryweather shows up as well. After the opening cutscene is over, a three way shootout commences on the roof. During the fire fight, the contact can be killed, either by Michael, FIB agents or Merryweather operatives.

Personality Edit

Quite sardonic and not without his patriotism, the contact justifies his and the organization's actions by saying that foreign terrorist groups and governments that conflict with America are ready to commit even more heinous actions that could bring harm to the American population (which Niko finds to be true while working against said terrorist groups), but he also doesn't deny that a lot of his actions are not for procuring public safety but rather to satisfy the government's sometimes greedy requests. In the first cutscene of his first mission, it is revealed that he speaks Serbian, the language of Niko's home country, as he says,"Just like the old country.", to which Niko replies,"Just like it".

Optional murders committed Edit

TriviaEdit

  • A diploma hanging on The Contact's wall has the name "Edward T. Fortune". However, since the same diploma can be seen hanging on the wall of Vic Manzano's office in The Ballad of Gay Tony, it is likely that this diploma is just a generic prop. The diploma also has a seal that is very similar to the one used by the C.I.A.
  • When Niko meets the Contact for the first time, he asks the Contact if he works for the FIB, to which the Contact sardonically asks Niko if he looks like a homosexual. This is a reference to the semi-confirmed allegations towards J. Edgar Hoover, the first Director of the FBI.
  • In GTA IV's game files, the Contact and his missions are listed under "CIA".
  • The Contact is similar to Mike Toreno, as they are both connected with the Government, and both make the protagonist work for them (Carl Johnson, in Toreno's case). At the end of the storyline, as a repayment for his cooperation, they award the protagonist with what they wanted (Sweet's release from prison in GTA San Andreas and the kidnapping of Darko Brevic in GTA IV).
    • He is also very similar to "the Professor", played by Leo G. Carroll in the 1959 film North by Northwest, as both are senior agents for the government, and they have a striking visual resemblance to each other, as well as not having their actual name revealed.
  • Sometimes, if the player clears a five or six-star wanted level, the Contact will call Niko and chastise him for not "laying low" as asked, to which Niko replies that he "can't help himself".
  • As seen in the Bradygames Guide, the Contact originally didn't wear glasses during Monkey Business.
