Ferdinand Kerimov, also known as Mr. K, is a supporting character that appears in Grand Theft Auto V.
Mr. K is an Azerbaijani who lives with family in Morningwood, Los Santos. He looks to be around his mid to late thirties or early forties and wears what appears to be a religious cross around his neck. According to him in the mission By the Book, he was kidnapped six weeks beforehand in the game.
He works as a home theater technician, as evidenced by his refutations of being a "terrorist" and admitting he's installed cinema equipment for accused terrorist Tahir Javan.
Events of GTA V
The FIB and the IAA are involved in a bureaucratic fight over which agency will receive more government funding. The IAA captures Mr. K and fakes his death to "remove him from the record", then extradites him for torture. Under the orders of Steve Haines, Michael De Santa, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Philips rescue him from the IAA in the midst of a torture session led by Karen Daniels in the IAA headquarters, but only to remove him to another warehouse. Mr. K is brutally tortured, this time by Trevor under Steve's supervision, until he gives them enough information so that Michael and Dave Norton can locate and kill Tahir Javan. He is tortured to the point where he cries.
Afterwards, Steve gives Trevor the order to kill Mr. K, claiming that he is no longer useful. Trevor decides instead to let Mr. K live however, because, ironically, he doesn't like taking orders from government types, and also because he must "deliver a message". He drives Mr. K to the airport, ignoring his complaints about his poor health and wanting to see his family again, and tells him to fly out of the country. Once dropped off at the airport, Mr. K attempts to run away, but eventually stumbles down a flight of stairs that exit the airport. He is not seen again after this.
Mr. K was accused of being a terrorist or at least being involved in terrorism in some form, but it is shown that he was simply a scapegoat.

- He wears what appears to be a religious cross on a necklace, which may imply, along with his first name (which is extremely rare in Azerbaijan) that he is a Christian. Interestingly, Azerbaijanis are predominantly Muslim.
