One of the three protagonists in GTA 5 is Franklin Clinton, who will be seen appearing in the game quite often. A player can also play the game in the shoes of Franklin and complete all the given missions. Spent the early years of his life in Los Santos, Franklin entered the mafia industry at a very early age and got involved in all sorts of illegal activities. The character’s personality can be best described from the fact that he possesses a constant lust of having more and more and for this reason, he could do anything to achieve power. Michael is someone he looks up to for all sorts of guidance and considers him a very dear friend. The third main character in the game, Trevor, is also a friend of Franklin.
As far as his personal life is concerned, both of his parents were severe cocaine addicts and although he does not know much about his father, he remembers his mother saying how violent of a man his father was. Franklin moved to his grandparents after the demise of his mother and this is where his ill behavior began.

Franklin is a tall, muscular man with a good height of 6.0 feet (1.83m). His appearance is quite manly and his fashion sense is quite latest. He weighs a total of 77kg or 170lbs. He is a robber by profession and gets involved in all sorts of illegal activities. Not really a fan of morals, Franklin can be seen dealing drugs and committing robbery in the game. Also, despite having such a long height, he is not really a fan of sports. Franklin is quite pathetic at tennis and doesn’t like playing it at all.
