Random Characters in GTA IV

Spoiler Alert

Random characters are minor characters you can find around Liberty City. They are marked by a blue icon on the map, but only when you are nearby.

They provide you short missions, most of which are necessary for 100% completion of the game. After you meet all the characters, the achievement/trophy “No More Strangers” unlocks. If some characters die during the storyline, it doesn’t prevent you from achieving 100% completion.
