Rockstar through its website has introduced us to two characters that look like they will play a big part in L.A. Noire. The first character is Marlon Hopgood, he becomes a person of interest when a curious item is found at the scene of a suspicious car accident leads Cole right back to his shop, The Silver Screen Prop Store. When questioned Hopgood claims that he has no knowledge about how or why the prop ended up at the scene. He would neither confirm nor deny that the item even originated from his store. This guy definitely seems dirty, I don’t think he’s a killer but I think he might turn out to be a middle man.
The other character we got introduced to was Coroner Carruthers. Carruthers is a coroner for the L.A. Police department and he will be a key contact in helping Cole solve a case. It looks like Rockstar will be introducing us to more characters ahead of the game’s May release so stay tuned. What do you all think of these guys?
