==Biography==
 
===Childhood===
 
===Childhood===
Dwayne was born in 1973 in North Holland, [[Liberty City]]. He grew up in [[Westminster Towers]], a notoriously violent and drug infested housing project in [[North Holland]]. His father was an illiterate, violent pimp and drug dealer who regularly beat both his wife and Dwayne himself. He would tell Dwayne in a harsh voice: "Expect the worst, then you can be pleasantly surprised!" before beating him, accounting for his melancholy outlook on life. His mother was his main caretaker, who he thought highly of saying she "tried so hard" to please his father, who often beat her. In one instance, she bought him golf clubs because a friend of his had some and it seemed sophisticated, but he used the clubs to beat her still. His father died when he tried to rip off other drug dealers in the neighborhood - the dealers knocked on his door and killed him right there. Dwayne says that he "felt nothing" when his father had been murdered, even saying he was glad. Dwayne later wanted to be a police officer as a child, but says he could not read well enough and that the [[LCPD]] frowned upon black police officers in the 1980s. At one point he was homeless, unable to get a job without full education. From there, Dwayne reflects that "I could add up and I could scare people, so I started selling dope." Dwayne admits these things while on friend activities with Niko Bellic.

Dwayne was born in 1973 in North Holland, [[Liberty City (HD Universe)|Liberty City]]. He grew up in the [[Westminster Towers]], a notoriously violent and drug infested housing project in [[North Holland]]. His [[Mr. Forge|father]] was an illiterate, violent [[pimp]] and [[Drug Dealers|Drug Dealer]] who regularly beat both his [[Mrs. Forge|wife]] and Dwayne himself. He would tell Dwayne in a harsh voice: "Expect the worst, then you can only be pleasantly surprised" before beating him, accounting for his melancholy outlook on life. His mother was his main caretaker, who he thought highly of, saying she "tried so hard" to please his father, who often beat her. In one instance, she bought him golf clubs because a friend of his had some and it seemed "sophisticated", but he used the clubs to beat her still. His father was killed on his doorstep when he tried to rip off other drug dealers in the neighborhood. Dwayne says that he "felt nothing" when his father had been murdered, even saying he was "glad". Dwayne later developed aspirations to be a police officer as a child, but says he could not read well enough and that the [[Liberty City Police Department (HD Universe)|LCPD]] looked down upon black police officers in the 1980s. At one point he was homeless, unable to get a job without full education. From there, Dwayne reflected on his only marketable skills, stating "I could add up and I could scare people, so I started selling dope."
   
 
===Drug empire and prison sentence===
 
===Drug empire and prison sentence===
Between 1988 and 1999, Dwayne ran the North Holland Hustlers and would go on to control and run a crack cocaine empire. Dwayne claimed that he made $50,000 per week and "had apartments full of money - entire apartments stuffed with bank notes!". Because of his connections, Dwayne had more pure product than anybody in Algonquin at that time. He was living the dream as a teenager, riding high as a drug lord. With his new success also came problems. A lot of people were jealous of Dwayne because of his fast money and street fame. This caused Dwayne to be very distant and only be close to a few people. Two of those people closest to him were his girlfriend [[Cherise Glover]], who he describes as "the love of my fucking life" and [[Playboy X]], who was 9 and once very book smart, when Dwayne first taught him how to sell drugs, but also saw him as a little brother. Dwayne stated that he wanted to start a nice family and have children, but believed his drug dealing and prison stint had prevented it. Dwayne also invested in the adult entertainment business and bought [[The Triangle Club]] in [[Bohan]], and a couple of porno shops in Liberty City and [[Alderney City]].

Because of his connections, Dwayne had more pure product than anybody in Algonquin at that time. He was living the dream as a teenager, riding high as a drug lord. However, with his new success also came problems. A lot of people were jealous of Dwayne because of his fast money and street fame. This caused Dwayne to constantly seem very distant and to only remain close to a few people. Two of those people closest to him were his girlfriend [[Cherise Glover]], who he describes as "the love of my fucking life", and [[Playboy X|Trey Steweart]], also known as Playboy X, his prodigy. Despite his immense wealth however Dwayne states that he was miserable, feeling paranoid and angry - possibly due to the jealousy of others. Dwayne stated that he wanted to start a nice family and have children, but believed his drug dealing and prison stint had prevented it. Dwayne also invested in the adult entertainment business and bought [[The Triangle Club]] in [[Bohan]], and a couple of pornography shops in Liberty City and [[Alderney City]].
   
In the late 90s following a tip from an informant, [[Jayvon Simson]], who would also steal his girlfriend in the next few years Dwayne was arrested and sent to prison. Dwayne ran the gang from prison at first, also providing his girlfriend Cherise "cars, houses, apartments, bank accounts, everything!" while inside. Dwayne was placed on suicide watch for much of his prison sentence, continuing to express some suicidal thoughts when released.

In the late 1990s, following a tip from an informant, [[Jayvon Simson]] - who would also steal his girlfriend in the next few years - Dwayne was arrested and sent to prison. Dwayne ran the gang from prison at first, also providing his girlfriend Cherise "cars, houses, apartments, bank accounts, everything!" while inside. He states that during his time in prison he went through a lot of therapy and he was placed on suicide watch for much of his prison sentence, continuing to express some suicidal thoughts when released. Upon reflection Dwayne harbours mixed feelings about his former empire, he states that "it was sort of fun, and sort of like living in hell; seeing your old school mates turn into zombies, and knowing they was going to be your best customers". He says that he knew what he was doing was wrong but felt like he didn't have a choice due to his lack of money and education.
   
[[Playboy X]] assumed leadership of the empire around the turn of the century, as many gangs matured from solely crack sales to wider drug sales, other organized crime and even legitimate venues such as the music and real estate industries. Playboy paid his last prison visit to Dwayne in 2004, no longer having any interest in running with him. During this time, his Triangle Club was taken over by the [[Trunchez Brothers|Trunchez brothers]].

====Release from prison====
In [[2008]], Dwayne is released from prison and immediately goes to see Playboy at his penthouse. He talks to Playboy X and Niko Bellic in the mission [[Deconstruction for Beginners]], where Playboy patronizes him. Playboy X eventually pays [[Niko Bellic]] to appease Dwayne by working for him, but Niko genuinely connects with Dwayne, as they both went through a lot and have developed a distaste for others.

At first, he asks Niko to [[Ruff Rider|kill]] [[Jayvon Simson|Jayvon]], the man who stole Dwayne's money and [[Cherise Glover|girlfriend]] . Niko finds him and Cherise, chooses whether or not to kill Cherise then after a long bikes chase, kills Jayvon. Niko meets up with Dwayne at [[Cluckin' Bell]], and gives him the money back.

Later, Dwayne tells Niko about his former gentleman's club, '''[[The Triangle Club]]'''. Niko [[Undress to Kill|goes to the strip club and kills]] the [[Trunchez Brothers]] for Dwayne, the gangsters who took control over the club, as well, associates of [[Playboy X]] .

Later, Dwayne tells Niko about his former gentleman's club, '''[[The Triangle Club]]'''. Niko [[Undress to Kill|goes to the strip club and kills]] the [[Trunchez Brothers]] for Dwayne, allowing him to retake control. This angers Playboy X as the Trunchez brothers were business associates of his.
   
However, Dwayne also begins to talk trash about Playboy, and Dwayne's re-acquisition of the Triangle Club conflicts with Playboy's business interests. Dwayne knew the effect that this would have on Playboy, doing it anyway out of passive-aggressive angst for turning his back on him. According to Playboy, he offered Dwayne half of his [[North Holland Hustlers|old gang]] back and he did not accept, likely insulted as he started the gang and taught Playboy the business when he was a mere child.

If Niko chooses to kill Dwayne, Niko will respectfully tell Dwayne that it's "nothing personal". Forge accepts his fate in sorrow, turning his back to Niko and calling him "fake, just like the rest of them!". Niko then shoots Dwayne in the back of the head, killing him. Playboy pays Niko, but, in apparent denial, calls him "cold" for assassinating his old mentor, and the two never speak again.

If Niko chooses to kill Playboy, Niko will arrive at [[Playboy X's Penthouse]] to kill him. When Niko is telling Playboy that he didn't change the game, he executes Playboy by shooting him in the neck, saying that the game changed him. Dwayne takes over the empire once again and gives Playboy's Penthouse to Niko, revealing he had the deed to it all along and, when told that he should take it by Niko, mentions that living in it would remind him too much of Playboy, who he states he "should have kept a closer eye on". He will also become a [[Friendships in GTA IV|friend]], and, if his [[Friendships in GTA IV|friendship ]]"like" percentage is raised high enough, he will send two gangsters as bodyguards whenever Niko needs backup.

==Friendship==
+
Despite being a drug dealer, Dwayne often shows signs of extreme kindness and altruism, especially to those closest to him. While incarcerated he pulled favors to make sure that his girlfriend on the outside was looked after and taken care of, even going as far to lavish her with cars and apartments and bank accounts. Dwayne took in Playboy X and served as a father figure to him, teaching him how to sell drugs and helping him build a criminal empire. If Niko chooses to kill Playboy X, Dwayne shows genuine sadness over his death, lamenting that he was "a good kid back in the day".
*If he is spared in [[The Holland Play]], Dwayne will send Niko an email. If the player responds positively, he will become a friend. When his 'like' percentage is high enough, he will send two goons to back Niko up when requested. They will stay with Niko for around 10-15 minutes until he says that he wants to be alone again. If you do not drop them off in about a minute they will bail out of the vehicle.

If you were to kill him during the mission the achievement/trophy would be easier to accomplish, but you suffer the fact of losing an extra safehouse/car save spot.
+

*In some cases, after killing Playboy, Dwayne will give Niko his safehouse, and Niko will keep him as a contact, but Dwayne will not give you any options as a friend (such as playing pool, bowling, drinking, eating, ect). You can only call him, which will give you his voicemail, and he will never call you.
 
 
*His and Playboy's relationship is similar to [[Mikhail Faustin]] and [[Dimitri Rascalov]]'s. Both have known each other for a long time, and one of them will eventually betray the other (Playboy betrays Dwayne in [[The Holland Play]] and Dimitri betrays Mikhail in [[The Master and the Molotov]]).

*In the [[L.C. Cage Fighters]] ring, a voice almost identical to Dwayne's can be heard cheering on when the player chooses to spectate. However, due to Dwayne living in near poverty, it may not be him despite the ring being only a couple of blocks away from his apartment.

"Sometimes I just wanna end this shit. Just... bam. But I ain't there yet. Not quite."
― Dwayne Forge

Dwayne Forge is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a main character and an optional friend in Grand Theft Auto IV. Dwayne is a former drug kingpin who ruled over North Holland.

BiographyEdit

ChildhoodEdit

Dwayne was born in 1973 in North Holland, Liberty City. He grew up in the Westminster Towers, a notoriously violent and drug infested housing project in North Holland. His father was an illiterate, violent pimp and Drug Dealer who regularly beat both his wife and Dwayne himself. He would tell Dwayne in a harsh voice: "Expect the worst, then you can only be pleasantly surprised" before beating him, accounting for his melancholy outlook on life. His mother was his main caretaker, who he thought highly of, saying she "tried so hard" to please his father, who often beat her. In one instance, she bought him golf clubs because a friend of his had some and it seemed "sophisticated", but he used the clubs to beat her still. His father was killed on his doorstep when he tried to rip off other drug dealers in the neighborhood. Dwayne says that he "felt nothing" when his father had been murdered, even saying he was "glad". Dwayne later developed aspirations to be a police officer as a child, but says he could not read well enough and that the LCPD looked down upon black police officers in the 1980s. At one point he was homeless, unable to get a job without full education. From there, Dwayne reflected on his only marketable skills, stating "I could add up and I could scare people, so I started selling dope."

Drug empire and prison sentenceEdit

Between 1988 and 1999, Dwayne ran a crack cocaine empire. Dwayne claimed that he made $50,000 per week and "had apartments full of money - entire apartments stuffed with bank notes!" Because of his connections, Dwayne had more pure product than anybody in Algonquin at that time. He was living the dream as a teenager, riding high as a drug lord. However, with his new success also came problems. A lot of people were jealous of Dwayne because of his fast money and street fame. This caused Dwayne to constantly seem very distant and to only remain close to a few people. Two of those people closest to him were his girlfriend Cherise Glover, who he describes as "the love of my fucking life", and Trey Steweart, also known as Playboy X, his prodigy. Despite his immense wealth however Dwayne states that he was miserable, feeling paranoid and angry - possibly due to the jealousy of others. Dwayne stated that he wanted to start a nice family and have children, but believed his drug dealing and prison stint had prevented it. Dwayne also invested in the adult entertainment business and bought The Triangle Club in Bohan, and a couple of pornography shops in Liberty City and Alderney City.

In the late 1990s, following a tip from an informant, Jayvon Simson - who would also steal his girlfriend in the next few years - Dwayne was arrested and sent to prison. Dwayne ran the gang from prison at first, also providing his girlfriend Cherise "cars, houses, apartments, bank accounts, everything!" while inside. He states that during his time in prison he went through a lot of therapy and he was placed on suicide watch for much of his prison sentence, continuing to express some suicidal thoughts when released. Upon reflection Dwayne harbours mixed feelings about his former empire, he states that "it was sort of fun, and sort of like living in hell; seeing your old school mates turn into zombies, and knowing they was going to be your best customers". He says that he knew what he was doing was wrong but felt like he didn't have a choice due to his lack of money and education.

Playboy X assumed leadership of the empire around the turn of the century, as many gangs matured from solely crack sales to wider drug sales, other organized crime and even legitimate venues such as the music and real estate industries. Playboy paid his last prison visit to Dwayne in 2004, no longer having any interest in running with him. During this time, his Triangle Club was taken over by the Trunchez brothers. Dwayne states that when he was arrested the authorities offered him all sorts of deals in exchange for him providing information on other dealers but he refused to give it to them saying that when he dies he can meet his maker knowing that he never ratted anybody out.

Events of GTA IVEdit

Release from prisonEdit

In 2008, Dwayne is released from prison and immediately goes to see Playboy at his penthouse. He talks to Playboy X and Niko Bellic in the mission Deconstruction for Beginners, where Playboy patronizes him. Playboy X eventually pays Niko Bellic to appease Dwayne by working for him, but Niko genuinely connects with Dwayne, as they both experienced hardship and have developed a cynical outlook on life and distaste for others.

Rebuilding LifeEdit

Niko helps him slowly put his life back together, by settling old grudges and reclaiming the Triangle Club.

At first, he asks Niko to kill Jayvon, the man who stole Dwayne's money and girlfriend. Niko finds him and Cherise, and chooses whether or not to kill Cherise before chasing and murdering Jayvon. Niko meets up with Dwayne at Cluckin' Bell, and gives him the money back.

Later, Dwayne tells Niko about his former gentleman's club, The Triangle Club. Niko goes to the strip club and kills the Trunchez Brothers for Dwayne, allowing him to retake control. This angers Playboy X as the Trunchez brothers were business associates of his.

However, Dwayne also begins to talk trash about Playboy, and Dwayne's re-acquisition of the Triangle Club conflicts further with Playboy's business interests. Dwayne knew the effect that this would have on Playboy, doing it anyway out of passive-aggressive angst for turning his back on him. According to Playboy, he offered Dwayne half of his old gang back and he did not accept, likely insulted as he started the gang and taught Playboy the business when he was a mere child.

The Holland PlayEdit

Niko is subsequently hired by both men to assassinate one another, in the mission The Holland Play. Niko must choose whether to kill Dwayne or Playboy X.

If Niko chooses to kill Dwayne, Niko will respectfully tell Dwayne that it's "nothing personal." Forge accepts his fate in sorrow, turning his back to Niko and calling him "fake, just like the rest of them!" Niko then shoots Dwayne in the back of the head while turned away, killing him with visible regret. Playboy pays Niko, but, in apparent denial, calls him "cold" for assassinating his old mentor, and the two never speak again.

If Niko chooses to kill Playboy, Niko will arrive at Playboy X's Penthouse to kill him. When Niko is telling Playboy that he didn't change the game, he executes Playboy by shooting him in the neck, saying that the game changed him. Dwayne takes over the empire once again and gives Playboy's Penthouse to Niko, revealing he had the deed to it all along and, when told that he should take it by Niko, mentions that living in it would remind him too much of Playboy, who he states he "should have kept a closer eye on". He will also become a friend, and, if his friendship's "like" percentage is raised high enough, he will send two gangsters as bodyguards whenever Niko needs backup. If Niko and Dwayne get drunk during a friendship activity, Dwayne may confess that he killed Playboy because was too jealous of his success.

AppearanceEdit

Dwayne is bald and has a beard. He wears a greenish-black coat with jeans and sneakers and is of a large build.

PersonalityEdit

During their friendship activities, Dwayne tells Niko about his life and at first presents very negative outlooks in conversation. However, after enough activities with Niko, Dwayne begins to act more positively and after Niko himself tells him to stop complaining and try to enjoy life, Dwayne finally begins to share some positive outlooks and hopes with Niko.

Despite being a drug dealer, Dwayne often shows signs of extreme kindness and altruism, especially to those closest to him. While incarcerated he pulled favors to make sure that his girlfriend on the outside was looked after and taken care of, even going as far to lavish her with cars and apartments and bank accounts. Dwayne took in Playboy X and served as a father figure to him, teaching him how to sell drugs and helping him build a criminal empire. If Niko chooses to kill Playboy X, Dwayne shows genuine sadness over his death, lamenting that he was "a good kid back in the day".

Dwayne appears to like hip-hop music, as his favourite radio stations are The Beat 102.7 and The Classics 104.1.

FriendshipEdit

Dwayne is the fifth and final friend Niko will make within Grand Theft Auto IV. If he is spared in The Holland Play, Dwayne will send Niko an email. If Niko responds positively, he and Dwayne will become friends.

He is available between 3:00PM and 1:00AM.

The possible activities with Dwayne are: Drinking, Eating, Bowling, Seeing a show (Perestroika or Split Sides) or going to a Strip Club. He likes classy places like the Superstar Café, however still loves Cluckin' Bell. His nightspot preference is Club Liberty in Northwood, Algonquin.

Dwayne does not like it if Niko drives too fast. He highly dislikes helicopters, so it is advised not to pick him up with one. However he likes the NRG 900 very much.

Dwayne's friendship activities do not count towards 100% completion.

Getting Dwayne's 'like' percentage over or equal to 90% counts towards the "Liberty City (5) achievement / trophy if he is spared during The Holland Play.

Friendship Benefit of DwayneEdit

When Dwayne's 'like' percentage is high enough, he will send two goons to back Niko up when requested. One of them carries a Pistol while the other carries a Micro-SMG. They will stay close to Niko and fire on every hostile enemy.

They will stay with Niko for around 10–15 minutes until he says that he wants to be alone again. If Niko does not drop them off in about a minute they will bail out of the vehicle. If Niko leaves them behind, they will disappear when they get too far away.
