==Biography==
 
==Biography==
===Childhood and personality===
+
===Early Life===
Packie was born to [[Maureen McReary]]. His siblings consisted of brothers [[Derrick McReary|Derrick]], [[Francis McReary|Francis]], and [[Gerald McReary|Gerald]], with [[Kate McReary|Kate]] being born in the next year. Born and raised in [[Dukes]], he has never been outside [[Liberty City]], except for [[Alderney|Alderney State]]. Packie's father was a violent, perverted alcoholic whom Packie blames for their Mob's fall from influence. He says of his father, "I used to think I loved him, but then I realized I hated him". He eventually admits to Niko that his father molested him and Gerry. He is also the only McReary that enjoys Rap and Hip-Hop. He has been using drugs since he was 14, staying home from school to roll joints for his dad. He has an addictive personality (not quite as bad as Derrick, but a rising issue), as seen in his predilection for alcohol and cocaine. He began a life of crime very early, having chosen Gerry as a role model, and was arrested for stealing a car when he was 18. In 2000, when he was about 21, his father died - possibly a suicide, or by Gerry.
+
Packie was born to [[Maureen McReary]] and an [[Mr. McReary|unnamed father]]. His siblings consisted of brothers [[Derrick McReary|Derrick]], [[Francis McReary|Francis]] and [[Gerald McReary|Gerald]], with [[Kate McReary|Kate]] being born two years later. Born and raised in [[Dukes]], he had never been outside [[Liberty City (HD Universe)|Liberty City]] - except for [[Alderney|Alderney State]] - until after the events of GTA IV.
Packie, on the surface, portrays himself as strong and without feeling. But when drunk or otherwise confiding in Niko, he is shown time and time again to be suppressing deeply painful emotions. For example, he will lament that "the world is ugly and unkind", question what being a man is all about, and contemplates suicide. He doesn't seem to seriously consider immediately and directly killing himself, but does glamourize the idea that he will die young of a drug overdose. Compared to Niko, Packie is equally capable of violence and criminal activity, and feels less guilt. He does, however, still hold certain moral standards; if you kill too many hostages during the mission [[Three Leaf Clover]], the mission will fail and Packie would say that he doesn't take this bloody money.
 
   
===During GTA IV===
+
Packie's father was a violent, perverted alcoholic whom Packie blames for their Mob's fall from influence. He says of his father, "I used to think I loved him, but then I realized I hated him". He eventually admits to Niko that his father used to molest him and Gerald. He developed a drug habit at 14 and claims he was constantly staying home from school to roll joints for his dad.
By the time of GTA IV, Packie largely operates independently of the Irish Mob, committing stick-up robberies with his friends [[Michael Keane|Michael]] and [[Gordon Sargent|Gordon]], and working as a hired gun for the [[Pegorino Family]].
 
   
Packie was introduced to [[Niko Bellic]] through cocaine dealer [[Elizabeta Torres]]. Packie and Niko quickly became friends after escaping from a [[Luck of the Irish|botched cocaine deal together]]. Impressed, Packie called up Niko and introduced him to his family and his gang. They all participated in robbing other criminal gangs (first [[Harbouring a Grudge|robbing]] the [[Algonquin Triads]] and [[Waste Not Want Knots|then]] the [[Ancelotti Family]]), and eventually did a [[Three Leaf Clover|bank robbery]] on the [[Bank of Liberty]] in Algonquin.
+
Packie became involved in crime at an early age, having chosen Gerry as a role model and began spotting for his brother's scores when he was in middle school. His first conviction came in 1997 when he was arrested for stealing a car when he was 18. The following year he secured his first felony conviction when he was arrested for grand larceny but was (presumably) acquitted and was arrested again in 2000 for highjacking. Packie's last known arrest came in 2005 when he was caught with several grams of cocaine in the presence of a known prostitute. At some point his father apparently committed suicide, and Gerry became head of the McReary family although Packie admits that he initially suspected Gerry of killing him.
   
After the bank job, Packie continued working with and befriending Niko, particularly in [[Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend|the kidnapping]] of [[Gracie Ancelotti]] for Gerry. Unbeknownst to Packie, Niko [[Blood Brothers|murdered one of his brothers]]. Nonetheless, Niko's assistance in [[Undertaker|suppressing an attack on the funeral]] cemented their friendship. Packie trusted Niko enough to encourage him to date [[Kate McReary|Kate]], the youngest of the McReary clan (confident that Kate would not "put out", in any case).

By the time of GTA IV, Packie largely operates independently of the Irish Mob, committing stick-up robberies with his friends [[Michael Keane]] and [[Gordon Sargent]], and working as a hired gun for the [[Pegorino Family]].
   
===After GTA IV===

Packie was introduced to [[Niko Bellic]] through cocaine dealer [[Elizabeta Torres]]. Packie and Niko quickly became friends after escaping from a [[Luck of the Irish|botched cocaine deal together]]. Impressed, Packie called up Niko and introduced him to his family and his gang. They all participated in robbing other criminal gangs (first [[Harbouring a Grudge|robbing]] the [[Algonquin Triads]] and [[Waste Not Want Knots|then]] the [[Ancelotti Family]]), and eventually the [[Bank of Liberty]] in Algonquin during a [[Three Leaf Clover|heist]]. Packie purchases a red [[Comet]] with his share of the take.
   
It is revealed in the credits for [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] that Packie left Liberty City with a duffel bag on a west-bound flight to an unknown location. Theories of his destination include:

After the bank job, Packie continued working with and befriending Niko, particularly in [[Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend|the kidnapping]] of [[Gracie Ancelotti]] for Gerry. Unbeknownst to Packie, Niko [[Blood Brothers|murdered one of his brothers]]. Nonetheless, Niko's assistance in [[Undertaker|suppressing an attack on the funeral of the same brother]] cemented their friendship. Packie trusted Niko enough to encourage him to date [[Kate McReary|Kate]], the youngest of the McReary clan. Though he was confident she wouldn't "put-out" - as he regularly states - his bypassing of his protective instinct showed that he held a distinct level of trust in Niko.
*'''Ireland:''' The first assumption based on Packie's culturally-inclined personality. Although drunk at the time, he promises Niko "I'm going to Ireland Niko, I'm gonna fucking go." It might also be a possibility seeing as he is proud of his descent. It is unlikely, however, as he is leaving on a west-bound flight.
 
*'''Australia:''' Packie tells Niko during one friend activity that Australia would be nice because it has nice beaches and hot chicks.
 
*'''[[Vice City]]''': Seeing as how Packie wanted to go somewhere with nice beaches and hot chicks, Vice City could be a desirable location.
 
*'''San Andreas''': There is always a possibility that he could have travelled to any of the cities in the [[State of San Andreas|State of ]][[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]].
 
*'''Los Santos''': Moreover, its possible to consider that Packie is leaving Liberty City when the plane flew over the large lighted "V" sign, which signifies the departing from Grand Theft Auto IV's setting to Grand Theft Auto V's new setting, Los Santos, which is set in San Andreas which makes it somewhat possible that Packie is heading to Los Santos. He might have some importantce in the game, (with the dufflebag he has, likewise), and may possibly appear in Grand Theft Auto V. Being that GTA V is to be mostly about bank heist it is a strong reference Packie might be in the game. 
 
   
==Appereance==
+
In the credits of [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], Packie is seen exiting a taxi cab and entering the airport with a duffel bag, presumably filled with money. In the following scenes, a plane is seen leaving the runway headed for an unknown destination. By 2013 he had settled in Los Santos.
Packie is slightly shorter and slender than Niko. Patrick has a long scar under his left eye; seen how he likes to fight while drunk, having scars is only reasonable. His nose is rather large and slightly crooked, it's possible that it was broken. Patrick wears a white long sleeved undershirt, green polo shirt, blue jeans and sneakers that look very similar to the ones in Russian Shop. He has green eyes that have a grayish tint and hair is a in buzzcut. His skin has several red spots and dents, probably caused by cocaine.
 
   
==Friendship==
+
== GTA V ==
At some point after completion of the mission [[Three Leaf Clover]] Packie calls you to do a friend activity with him; after that you will become friends with him.

Packie is the fourth of five friends you will make within the game, and is available between 4 PM and 6 AM.
+
[[File:PatrickMcreary-GTAV-next.jpg|thumb|Patrick in [[2013]].]]
   
Packie is available for six different activities. They are: Bowling, Darts, Drinking, Pool, Show, and Strip Club.
+
Packie appears again in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', popping up rather early in the game as he robs a [[Dollar Pills|drug store]] in [[Strawberry]] with an [[Packies Accomplice|un-named accomplice]]. Once you find him, he requests that you find a getaway car and help them escape. You may do so, or assist the store owner and kill Packie and his accomplice. If you commit to the former, he will thank you and become available as a gunman in further heists. Packie has some of the highest possible skills for a gunman available, but takes 12% percent of the cut.

Interestingly, Packie mentions his [[Three Leaf Clover|biggest robbery]] during [[The Paleto Score]], if he was chosen for the job. On the way to the bank, the gang will talk about their first robberies. Packie mentions that [[Michael Keane|one of the gunmen]] were killed by one of the [[Eugene Reaper|hostages]], and go into detail regarding how they escaped. He will also mention his brother, [[Derrick McReary|Derrick]], who was also a gunman in the Liberty City robbery, and say that he is dead. Lastly, he mentions [[Niko Bellic]], the fourth gunman. Packie says that he had lost contact with Niko after leaving [[Liberty City (HD Universe)|Liberty City]], and that he doesn't even know what became of him, presuming him dead.

Packie and choose detonate to explode the Bomb.
 
   
He likes it when Niko drives fast. He says things like "If you have somewhere to be then you may as go at pace." and "This is the way to do it, Niko."
+
Packie can be selected in all the heists of the game. In [[The Jewel Store Job]], smart or loud approach, he manages to get all the jewels in the glass cabinets, helping the crew reach the maximum possible score of the job. In the loud approach, he also stops the manager of the jewelery store before she screams for help.
   
==Mission appearances==
+
In [[The Paleto Score]], Packie survives the heist and provides a good help against the cops. Michael even compliments Packie's help by saying that he is glad they choose him for the score.

In the obvious approach, if he is selected as either the first or second gunman, there are no consequences to the heist. Previous experience in past heists won't change Packie's performance in any of the scores; he does a good job in all of then even if he is selected for the first time.

'''Surname''':
+
Packie's cocaine addiction has caused him numerous problems. He claims that he can't look for women without cocaine in his system and when he's with women, he spends his time in the bathroom snorting rails of coke, which lowers his sex drive (he calls this a "catch 22"). Kate claims that Packie has uncontrollable behavior when he's with her in public and will attack anyone who he thinks is looking at her "wrong".

===Grand Theft Auto IV and its Episodes===
  +
Packie is slightly shorter and more slender than Niko. He also has a long scar under his left eye, a possible result of drunken fights. His nose appears to be slightly crooked, implying that it may have been broken. Patrick wears a white long sleeved undershirt, green polo shirt, blue jeans and sneakers that look very similar to the ones in [[Russian Shop]]. He has green eyes that have a grayish tint and hair is shaved in a buzzcut. His skin has several red spots and dents, probably caused by cocaine.
   
'''Age''': 29

Packie is seen again, but looks a bit different than in ''Grand Theft Auto IV''. He is seen with considerably more scars, light stubble, and looks considerably older. The mole on the top right corner of his lip is more visible and he has developed wrinkles around his eyes. His eyes appear as a lighter auburn and are less distressed and bloodshot. His outfits are determined by his appearance in Heists. His nostrils are also more enlargened than his previous appearance.

When Packie's "Like Stat" rises above 75% (and after completing the mission "[[Actions Speak Louder than Words]] "), the player will unlock his Special Ability. Packie's Special Ability allows Niko to call Packie and ask him to prepare a car bomb, which can be used to take down difficult targets. This ability can be useful in certain situations and missions. When the player requests a bomb, Packie will inform Niko of its location. Once Niko has located the bomb, he can detonate it by calling Packie. Receiving Packie's freindship bonus will award the player the "Dial 'B' for Bomb" trophy/achievement.

"That was a whole lot of effort for no fucking reward. Story of my life."
― Packie McReary

Patrick "Packie" McReary (Irish: Pádraig Mac Ruairí) is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a main character and a friend in Grand Theft Auto IV, made a cameo in The Lost and Damned, a supporting character in The Ballad of Gay Tony and a minor character and optional heist accomplice in Grand Theft Auto V. Packie is a member of the McReary crime family and the youngest brother of the McReary clan itself.

Packie reappears in Grand Theft Auto V in the random event Getaway Driver and based on its outcome, he can become an optional accomplice for heist missions.

BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

Packie was born to Maureen McReary and an unnamed father. His siblings consisted of brothers Derrick, Francis and Gerald, with Kate being born two years later. Born and raised in Dukes, he had never been outside Liberty City - except for Alderney State - until after the events of GTA IV.

Packie's father was a violent, perverted alcoholic whom Packie blames for their Mob's fall from influence. He says of his father, "I used to think I loved him, but then I realized I hated him". He eventually admits to Niko that his father used to molest him and Gerald. He developed a drug habit at 14 and claims he was constantly staying home from school to roll joints for his dad.

Packie became involved in crime at an early age, having chosen Gerry as a role model and began spotting for his brother's scores when he was in middle school. His first conviction came in 1997 when he was arrested for stealing a car when he was 18. The following year he secured his first felony conviction when he was arrested for grand larceny but was (presumably) acquitted and was arrested again in 2000 for highjacking. Packie's last known arrest came in 2005 when he was caught with several grams of cocaine in the presence of a known prostitute. At some point his father apparently committed suicide, and Gerry became head of the McReary family although Packie admits that he initially suspected Gerry of killing him.

GTA IVEdit

By the time of GTA IV, Packie largely operates independently of the Irish Mob, committing stick-up robberies with his friends Michael Keane and Gordon Sargent, and working as a hired gun for the Pegorino Family.

Packie was introduced to Niko Bellic through cocaine dealer Elizabeta Torres. Packie and Niko quickly became friends after escaping from a botched cocaine deal together. Impressed, Packie called up Niko and introduced him to his family and his gang. They all participated in robbing other criminal gangs (first robbing the Algonquin Triads and then the Ancelotti Family), and eventually the Bank of Liberty in Algonquin during a heist. Packie purchases a red Comet with his share of the take.

After the bank job, Packie continued working with and befriending Niko, particularly in the kidnapping of Gracie Ancelotti for Gerry. Unbeknownst to Packie, Niko murdered one of his brothers. Nonetheless, Niko's assistance in suppressing an attack on the funeral of the same brother cemented their friendship. Packie trusted Niko enough to encourage him to date Kate, the youngest of the McReary clan. Though he was confident she wouldn't "put-out" - as he regularly states - his bypassing of his protective instinct showed that he held a distinct level of trust in Niko.

In the credits of The Ballad of Gay Tony, Packie is seen exiting a taxi cab and entering the airport with a duffel bag, presumably filled with money. In the following scenes, a plane is seen leaving the runway headed for an unknown destination. By 2013 he had settled in Los Santos.

GTA V Edit

"Thanks for the help. If you've ever got a job coming up, try and find me. The name's Packie McReary of Dukes, Liberty City."
―Packie after being aided in escaping the police.
PatrickMcreary-GTAV-next

Patrick in 2013.

Packie appears again in Grand Theft Auto V, popping up rather early in the game as he robs a drug store in Strawberry with an un-named accomplice. Once you find him, he requests that you find a getaway car and help them escape. You may do so, or assist the store owner and kill Packie and his accomplice. If you commit to the former, he will thank you and become available as a gunman in further heists. Packie has some of the highest possible skills for a gunman available, but takes 12% percent of the cut.

Interestingly, Packie mentions his biggest robbery during The Paleto Score, if he was chosen for the job. On the way to the bank, the gang will talk about their first robberies. Packie mentions that one of the gunmen were killed by one of the hostages, and go into detail regarding how they escaped. He will also mention his brother, Derrick, who was also a gunman in the Liberty City robbery, and say that he is dead. Lastly, he mentions Niko Bellic, the fourth gunman. Packie says that he had lost contact with Niko after leaving Liberty City, and that he doesn't even know what became of him, presuming him dead.

Lester Crest: "McReary? He was a part of a well known Liberty City stickup crew. Small world."
Michael De Santa: "I got a good feeling about him."
―Lester and Michael about Packie.

Packie can be selected in all the heists of the game. In The Jewel Store Job, smart or loud approach, he manages to get all the jewels in the glass cabinets, helping the crew reach the maximum possible score of the job. In the loud approach, he also stops the manager of the jewelery store before she screams for help.

In The Paleto Score, Packie survives the heist and provides a good help against the cops. Michael even compliments Packie's help by saying that he is glad they choose him for the score.

In The Bureau Raid, he survives the explosion during the escape in the covert approach and in the roof approach, he does a good job with no consequences.

In The Big Score, subtle approach, if placed as one of the gunmen, he does not drop any gold bars while he is loading them into the Gauntlets, preventing the crew from losing any of the final score.

In the obvious approach, if he is selected as either the first or second gunman, there are no consequences to the heist. Previous experience in past heists won't change Packie's performance in any of the scores; he does a good job in all of then even if he is selected for the first time.

PersonalityEdit

On the surface, Packie portrays himself as strong and without feeling. But when drunk or otherwise confiding in Niko, he is shown time and time again to be suppressing deeply painful emotions. For example, he will lament that "the world is ugly and unkind", question what being a man is all about, and contemplates suicide. He has an addictive personality, as shown by his habitual use of cocaine and prostitutes. He doesn't seem to seriously consider immediately and directly killing himself, but does glamorize the idea that he will die young of drug overdose. Compared to Niko, Packie is equally capable of violence and criminal activity whilst appearing to show little or no remorse. He does, however, still hold certain moral standards; if the player kills too many hostages during the mission Three Leaf Clover, the mission will fail and Packie will say that he doesn't take "bloody money".

Packie's cocaine addiction has caused him numerous problems. He claims that he can't look for women without cocaine in his system and when he's with women, he spends his time in the bathroom snorting rails of coke, which lowers his sex drive (he calls this a "catch 22"). Kate claims that Packie has uncontrollable behavior when he's with her in public and will attack anyone who he thinks is looking at her "wrong".

AppearanceEdit

Grand Theft Auto IV and its EpisodesEdit

Packie is slightly shorter and more slender than Niko. He also has a long scar under his left eye, a possible result of drunken fights. His nose appears to be slightly crooked, implying that it may have been broken. Patrick wears a white long sleeved undershirt, green polo shirt, blue jeans and sneakers that look very similar to the ones in Russian Shop. He has green eyes that have a grayish tint and hair is shaved in a buzzcut. His skin has several red spots and dents, probably caused by cocaine.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Packie is seen again, but looks a bit different than in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is seen with considerably more scars, light stubble, and looks considerably older. The mole on the top right corner of his lip is more visible and he has developed wrinkles around his eyes. His eyes appear as a lighter auburn and are less distressed and bloodshot. His outfits are determined by his appearance in Heists. His nostrils are also more enlargened than his previous appearance.

FriendshipEdit

PackieMcReary-GTAIV-BombSizeNiko and the car bomb.

At some point after completion of the mission Three Leaf Clover, Packie calls Niko to do a friend activity with him. After this event is completed, Niko will become friends with him. Packie is the fourth of five friends Niko will make within the game, and is available between 4 PM and 6 AM. He is available for six different activities; Bowling, Darts, Drinking, Pool, Show, and Strip Club.

When Packie's "Like Stat" rises above 75% (and after completing the mission "Actions Speak Louder than Words "), the player will unlock his Special Ability. Packie's Special Ability allows Niko to call Packie and ask him to prepare a car bomb, which can be used to take down difficult targets. This ability can be useful in certain situations and missions. When the player requests a bomb, Packie will inform Niko of its location. Once Niko has located the bomb, he can detonate it by calling Packie. Receiving Packie's freindship bonus will award the player the "Dial 'B' for Bomb" trophy/achievement.

He likes it when Niko drives fast, saying things such as "If you have somewhere to be then you may as go at pace." and "This is the way to do it, Niko." He also enjoys fighting while on friend activities, and - as with all friends - will assist in any combat during the activity.
