(Deathwish Ending only)
Donald "Don" Percival is a fictional character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appeared as an unseen antagonist of Grand Theft Auto V.
Percival is an ex-Navy Seal who founded Merryweather in 2003 using money from a coup in Western Africa. He floated Merryweather on the BAWSAQ stock exchange three years ago, and is now expanding domestic operations to appease shareholder demand. Percival is also lobbying the US government for a new war in the Middle East, Asia, Africa or France to help turn the economy around. He recently teamed up with Vinewood actor Bruce Spade as he seeks to follow up his humanitarian work in war zones with military action.
Events of GTA V
He started to hold a grudge against Michael De Santa and Trevor Phillips after they have been ruining their reputation by stealing precious cargo his militia was guarding. After completing the game on the "Death wish" ending, he will send both of the characters an e-mail explaining that he is glad that they killed Devin Weston because he was able to buy his shares in the company and which he anticipated would earn him a lot of money and thanks them for those but also warns them to "not fuck with him again". It's completely unknown what happened to Don Percival afterwards, but as he regained full control of Merryweather, it's likely that with the time, he and his militia recovered their clients and security.
- Due to being the founder and owner of Merryweather Security and providing Weston with the security, Don Percival is the Bigger Bad of the game, despite not being seen in-game.
- If the Deathwish ending is chosen, Lester Crest informs Franklin Clinton about Devin Weston's share of 11%, supposed "alliance" with Don Percival, and realizes that the FIB (Federal Investigation Bureau), IAA (International Affairs Agency), and Merryweather would all love to be involved in capturing the score from the Union Depository Heist. Unfortunately, it ends up being a bust for all 3 organizations, as Michael, Franklin, Trevor, and Lamar Davis take out everyone who arrives at the foundry building.
