Franklin Clinton is one of the three protagonists of Grand Theft Auto V. He is a young gangbanger who is best friends with Lamar Davis. However, Franklin would eventually leave the streets of ghetto Los Santos to become a bank robber with Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips. Franklin met Michael on accident while doing a mission for Simeon Yeterian, while this would cause a chain reaction leading to Franklin meeting Trevor through Michael.
- Out of the trio, Franklin is the only one without an actual death in-game. Michael or Trevor can die at the game's end by being killed by him on the orders of either Devin Weston (to kill Michael) or Steve Haines (to kill Trevor).
