Henry Deus (1978-Present) is one of the four main protagonists during the 1998 - 2011 Chapter Arcs in Grand Theft Auto VI. Henry serves as the main antagonist of the game.
Henry was born in April 17th 1971 in Liberty City to a multi-millionaire ndustrialist Gabriel Deus and an unnamed woman. His father Gabriel was an associate and lawyer to Jon Gravelli who didn't payed much attention to him as he was busy working for the Gravelli Crime Family and her mother emotionally abused him. Despite this however, he had a very good education in school and is remarkably intelligent having graduated High School at the age of 13 and University at the age of 17 with a degree of politics and training experience. Henry enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at the age of 18, where he reached the rank of Captain at the age of 28 and having participated in the Iraq War.
After retiring from the USMC, Henry returned to Liberty City to work for the Liberty City Police Department, eventually making his way up to the position of Lieutenant and also work as a undercover associate for many crime families. At somepoint Henry met FIB Agents Alberta Da Silva and Ashley Madison and has arranged them to do some jobs for him.
Henrys persona consists of being quiet, organized, vigilant, ruthless, cold hearted and highly introverted, hardly ever talking about himself to others. Being someone who listens to others, methodical in work, straight-eyed, determined, and able to cope under pressure makes Henry Deus an effective private investigator, allowing him to assess human behavior and perceive clues other people may miss.
His previous employment before becoming the don of the Gambelli Family was that of a police lieutenant for the Liberty City Police Department. As shown when Deus is brought in for questioning.
