"My family has been here two hundred years. I'm more American than you. Not that's anything to boast about. "
― Manuel

Manuel is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, appearing as a stranger/freak in Grand Theft Auto V.


Events of GTA V

A man of Mexican descent, Manuel's family lived in the United States for over 200 years (meaning he is likely a Californio[1]). He is wrongly accused by Joe and Josef of being an illegal immigrant.

Manuel, ashamed of being wrongly arrested, orders Trevor Philips (who briefly helped Joe and Josef) to find and kill the duo, which Trevor does, albeit unwillingly, as Manuel refuses to pay him.

Manuel is shown to be a proud man, not dropping his serious attitude even when being held at a gunpoint by Trevor, scolding him until he's motivated to kill the two, and that he will not pay him anything for the deed before walking away to his truck and driving away.
