Tommy Bell confronts Klaus Laughton

Family Ties is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: North Yankton Stories, which protagonist Tommy Bell does independently, even though completing it shows the progression of Nikki Laughton's missions.


After the mission Splashdown, Nikki calls Tommy and tells him they need to talk about their future. When Tommy arrives in Pharmacy where Nikki works in, he witnesses Nikki having once again an argument with her brother Klaus.

The argument ends up with Klaus punching Nikki in the face. This is the straw that breaks the camel's back, and Tommy has had enough of Klaus and his behavior. Tommy confronts Klaus who tries to calm him down, in vain.

Klaus runs away. Tommy checks if Nikki is okay, and promises to end this once and for all. Tommy sprints after Klaus, who still tries to reason him not to kill him. Klaus arrives in his car and tries to flee, but is chased down and killed by Tommy.

Tommy calls Nikki, telling Klaus won't do harm to them anymore. Even though she didn't like her brother, Nikki asks Tommy for some time to be alone and think.

The player can't hang out with Nikki until the story has been completed. If missions Friendly Rivalry and Piece of Cake have also been completed, mission Pig Food is unlocked.
