Civilians make up neighborhood residents, truck drivers, repairmen, strippers, hobos... etc. A lot of the time they can be avoided but some will act as hunters. There are a lot more Civilians in the PC, and beta versions. Some are killed by others and remain as corpses.
Chronologically, the first Civilian to appear is the owner of RSV Gas Station who will attack Leo only if he sees him stealing his Gas Can. If the player is quick enough, it's possible to take the gas can and pass by unnoticed by him.
When Danny and Leo arrive at the Red Light District in search of Daniel's Safe House, two Red Kings kill a maintenance guy and rip his nose off with pliers. Also strippers can be seen through windows and on the PC version, hobos are seen standing around muttering to themselves and can be executed even though they are harmless. Another maintenance guy appears near the area where the cops beating a Red King member cutscene takes place, he is also harmless and pretty much careless about what's going on, even if the corpses of the cops are near him.
As Danny exits his safehouse on the PC version, a bum will run past him yelling about the Watchdogs. He can be killed even though he is harmless. The Watchdogs will also shoot this bum if they see him.
At the Bees Honey Pot, a civilian fixing an air duct with a Sledgehammer can be found inside and will attack Daniel if he is interrupted. The player can also hear moans of people having sex when they pass nearly every locked and inaccessible room of the brothel. In the first air duct (the one being repaired) a man can be clearly heard talking and moaning off screen.
When Danny escapes the Bloodhounds by exiting the sewer, he finds himself in a back garden and on the PC a civilian with a Shovel, warned by his son, will attack the player. If Daniel kills the civilian, his son will scream "DADDY!" out of sadness and despair. Then as he reaches the Auto Shop, he finds a mechanic being killed by a Watchdog for forcefully asking his ID.
- Other: Awakening, Ghosts, Sexual Deviants, Red Light, Safe House (PC), Bees Honey Pot, Most Wanted, Broadcast Interrupted.
- The hobos have the same faces, voices and clothes as the vagrants from the Warriors, another game published by Rockstar.
- Female civilians were going to appear much more often, such as in the Sorority House level.
- The Civilians originally had a much larger role in the game. Depending on how many Civilians you killed as Danny it would go to either the good or bad ending. If Danny was to kill several civilians for no reason throughout the story it would lead to the ending where Leo takes control and if the Civilians were left alone it would take you to the ending where Danny lives and becomes David Joiner.
