Eddie Low in Grand Theft Auto IV

(Content warning: discussion of sexual assault and child abuse)

Eddie Low is a “random character” that players can encounter in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is a serial killer and rapist (referred to in news stories throughout the game as “Head Hunter”). Wiki authors alternatively refer to him as bisexual and homosexual, though his dialogue suggests he is bisexual and in the game he is represented as sexually assaulting and killing people regardless of gender. He also cross-dresses and was sexual abused as a child. A video of Niko’s interactions with Eddie are available in this video.
