Trevor, meanwhile, doesn't so much seem like any one character from pop culture as he does the familiar trope of the gang-banger who wants to get out of the game, much like some of the characters in, say, John Singleton's Boyz N' The Hood. Still, the guys he rolls with are reluctant to escape, and begin to suspect that he might be a snitch. It's easy to imagine how this could create a mess for Trevor throughout the game, and hopefully Rockstar will find a way to have Michael and Franklin come into the fold to help him out (perhaps with a climactic, epic gunfight?) What else do we know about Trevor? Michael refers to him as "the son he never had" in an earlier trailer, and in this new character trailer we also briefly see Trevor handling his dog, which seems capable of accosting enemies, and you might remember from previous footage, pouncing over cars. Hopefully this is an actual gameplay mechanic rather than just a cut-scene tease; that would be awesome.
