- "Carl you got it all wrong, pal. Tenpenny was the one saving YOUR ass! Everytime I wanted to get rid of you he'd find some excuse to keep you alive. But now it's up to me and I ain't such a fucking soft touch!"
- — Eddie Pulaski to Carl Johnson.
Edward "Eddie" Pulaski is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a main character and the quartenary antagonist of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Pulaski's role as an antagonist in the game stems entirely from his role as the right-hand man of Frank Tenpenny, whom together he (along with Jimmy Hernandez and Ralph Pendelbury) make up the extremely corrupt unit of the LSPD known as C.R.A.S.H..
Events of GTA San Andreas
Eddie is Frank Tenpenny's partner in crime. Little by little, Tenpenny showed him the "truth" of how the law should be handled in C.R.A.S.H. when dealing with gang crime. Over the years he had been working with Tenpenny, he developed a high level of deluded trust in their partnership (if anything, Tenpenny was simply using Pulaski to cover his back when needed) and an irreverent outlook on those he saw as below the law. He also served as Tenpenny's crooked henchman most of the time, doing numerous illegal activities and covering up the truth. In the desert region of Bone County, they kill Officer Jimmy Hernandez for turning them in to Internal Affairs.
- "Any last requests?"
- — CJ
- "Yeah, can I fuck your sister?""
- — Pulaski
- "You an asshole to the end! Punk motherfucker!!"
- — CJ
Officer Pulaski is killed by CJ in the mission "High Noon" during a car chase after he gets CJ riled with numerous comments about his mother and sister. In this mission, Pulaski insisted that Tenpenny wanted to keep CJ alive and would always find an excuse every time Pulaski demanded that CJ be killed. Although he ended up getting chased, shot, and killed by CJ (who tries in vain to make Pulaski realize that Tenpenny was just using him), he was a major antagonist in the main storyline. His last request was to have sex with Kendl, in which Carl responds by dealing him a kick to the head, killing Pulaski.
"I bet he'll turn up dead, just like the rest of them."
During the mission Riot, when Frank Tenpenny is in court, Pulaski is presumed to be in hiding, but CJ (and, later revealed, Tenpenny) knows otherwise. Just after Smoke is killed, Tenpenny comments: "You killed Pulaski, now this fat fuck? There's no stopping you!"
