Lvl

Experience Level  —  1 — 10

Experience level (LVL) is a reflection of a mercenary's overall experience and abilities working as a merc. It allows mercs to better know when to be ready for conflict, resulting in more interrupts on an enemy. It also affects the merc's ability to detect traps, move silently and spot camouflaged or hidden enemies. LVL cannot be trained (there is no substitute for experience, after all), and actions which most directly dictate experience include killing enemies, successfully performing tasks, and completing missions.

Any gain in LVL will result in a significant raise in the Merc salary.

Hp

Health Points  —  0 — 100

Health represents how much damage a mercenary can take before he/she dies. The health bar is a red bar located next to the character's portrait.

Effects
Health is also one of the stats that affects a merc's maximum amount of action points and energy (blue bar). High health mercs can travel for longer and still enter a sector with a high blue bar. The amount of Health to achieve maximum Energy is 60.

Health status
The health status displayed on hovering a character means:

  • 90+ Excellent
  • 75+ Strong
  • 60+ Healthy
  • 45+ Wounded
  • 30+ Poor
  • 15+ Critical
  • 0+ Dying
Agi

Agility  —  0 — 100

Agility (AGI) affects your maximum amount of action points and sneak ability. The higher the stat, the less chances the mercenary drops his weapon when hit in the arms. Also increases interrupt chances. Can be increased by dodging melee attacks and moving while sneaking near an enemy.

Dex

Dexterity  —  0 — 100

Dexterity (DEX) is a very important attribute for all mercenaries. It affects many things: throwing and catching objects, hitting and dodging in hand to hand or knife fights, disarming traps, lock-picking, bandaging, medical efficiency, combining items, chance to hit, dual-weapon wielding, repairing items faster and getting interrupts more often. Dexterity can be improved by using the associated skills (doctoring and repairing items), using throwing knives, and tossing rocks and grenades.

Dexterity can also be trained by beating up cows, tanks or anything else that can be hit in melee combat. Also trains Strength.

Str

Strength  —  0 — 100

Strength (STR) affects melee damage and how much your merc can carry in inventory. The more guns and ammunition, the better. Important attribute for hand-to-hand combat mercenaries. Also affects the maximum distance at which a mercenary can throw grenades. Trained by punching anything alive, force opening locks (crowbar/kicking), and throwing rocks or grenades . Carrying a lot of stuff while traveling raises it.

To effectively train Strength make sure you carry a lot - 150% or more would be good. The amount of equipment you have effectively limits this training method (specifically in the beginning before finding any additional equipment) as it drops significantly once you fall below 100%. Travel between rough areas (i.e. hills: A7 - A8). In most versions, the travel command can be cancelled and yet trains. See "Health" for further details.

Strength can also be trained by beating up cows, tanks or anything else that can be hit in melee combat. Also trains Dexterity.

Ldr

Leadership  —  0 — 100

Higher leadership (LDR) allows a mercenary to quickly train militia and other mercenaries, and to elicit more positive responses from NPCs and recruitable mercs during conversation. A high leadership is often needed to convince certain NPCs to do what you need them to, or to recruit an NPC who is willing to join up. Leadership also affects squad morale, as a very high leadership can slow the drop of an unhappy merc's morale, though it does not help sustain high morale.

Leadership naturally increases quickly while training militia, or other mercs.

In world, leadership is combination of experience leading teams, natural charisma, and familiarity with local natives.

Wis

Wisdom  —  0 — 100

Wisdom (WIS) reflects a merc's overall intelligence. This affects their teachability during training and allows them to gain more points when acting as Student or Practice, and also increases the chances of learning from experience on the field. Overall, a merc with a high wisdom score will improve their attributes very quickly.

Wisdom also affects a merc's ability to detect mines and affects their ability to perform meticulous tasks such as lockpicking, repairing, and medical care.

High wisdom mercs will usually make a remark upon entering a high-risk sector, usually along the lines of "something bad is about to happen".

Wisdom is one the least "trainable" attributes a merc has - actual intelligence in adults, after all, is largely ingrained, and difficult to train without time and care. It can be increased slowly by training militia and successfully doing work with explosives, such as setting and disarming bombs and bandaging patients in the field.

Mrk

Marksmanship  —  0 — 100

Marksmanship (MRK) determines the overall ability of the merc to shoot and hit a target with a firearm or thrown weapon. Shooting crows or locked doors can train this. Can also be improved by using throwing knives and by shooting locks. Successful hits during combat with either a firearm or grenade will also improve this stat. Affects how likely a thrown grenade is to land on its intended target square, as well as heavy weapons usage.

Mec

Mechanical  —  0 — 100

The mechanical (MEC) score is a mercenary's ability to tinker and fix. This affects lockpicking, disarming of certain traps, repair speed, chance of combining and attaching items, and the chance that any shot taken with a jammed weapon will unjam it. Can be trained by repairing items, picking locks, and unjamming guns manually (by force firing it rather than repairing it). Take note that a merc with a high MEC but no Electronics skill will still have difficulty bypassing electronic locks and repairing electronic items.

Exp

Explosives  —  0 — 100

The Explosives (EXP) attribute, affected by DEX and LVL, affects the ability to find, set and disarm mines and explosive traps, mount detonators and work with volatile compounds such as RDX. A merc skilled in explosives is important, as a bad enough failure planting or combing for explosives can set them off right in the merc's face. Does not influence grenade throwing (a merc with 0 explosives skill may still successfully use grenades but said grenade may not detonate). This skill does not affect a merc's ability to disarm non-explosive traps, such as electric or siren traps.

In most versions, the easiest way to quickly train this skill is to repeatedly set and disarm a mine, however, some latest released version disabled Exp gained from disarming Explosive device set by the player.

Med

Medical  —  0 — 100

Medical (MED) skill determines speed, quality and effectiveness of first aid and the amount of medical supplies used during any medical actions - a merc with a higher medical skill uses less supplies. This also affects the amount of health that is healed per hour during Doctor - Patient assignments. Note that a wounded merc can heal himself by assigning him as a doctor. Any mercenary with points in Medical can apply first aid to a wounded character, but that does not mean they can heal health points as a doctor; a large number of the cast cannot heal a single point in that manner, while the mercs with the highest doctoring skill (such as Vince, Dr. Q and Danny) can heal approximately up to 5 health points per hour, to which is added Merc's natural healing (1pt every 2-3 hours, doubled when sleeping)

Bandaging trains Medical without significant in-game time loss. Note that beaten up cows and militia can only be bandaged right after being wounded, otherwise they get "bandaged by default".

Grizzly  —  Steve Bornell

A.I.M  —  Heavy Weapons  —  Hand to Hand  —  Bodybuilding

A bear of a man, Grizzly Bornell carries the big guns of battle with authority. Even though heavy weapons are his speciality, he is just as lethal when left empty-handed.

Ivan Portrait

Ivan  —  Ivan Dolvich

A.I.M  —  Auto Weapons  —  Heavy Weapons  —  Bodybuilding

Ivan, a former highly decorated Red Army Major, joined the organization over three years ago on a freelance assignment. Despite serious difficulties communicating in English, he took the mercenary world by storm, breaking all kill-rate records and tallying up the kind of stats that perhaps only he himself is capable of breaking. Ivan himself says it best, 'gun, all gun, like finger on hand.' In order to improve his relationship with commanders, Ivan has enrolled in an "English as a second language" course.

Additional Info

  • Dialogue a blend of Russian and English.
  • Struggles for words in English, tends to fall into Russian during tense moments.
  • Very direct and unemotional.

Igor  —  Igor Dolvich

A.I.M  —  Hunter  —  Stealthy

Following in his uncle's footsteps won't be easy for Igor. His uncle Ivan Dolvich is legendary. Igor may be new to A.I.M. but he is by no means new to armed combat – he developed his abilities for stealth while in action in Chechnya. Most importantly, his bloodline speaks volumes about his potential. Igor and Ivan are already being referred to as the Russian "I-Team.

Additional Info

  • Russian accent.
  • Has had plenty of exposure to alcohol due to the horrors of war, though not as much of a drunk as Larry.
  • Uses odd expressions, which sometimes come off as strange and funny.
  • Admires his uncle, Ivan, but probably lacks the fortitude and discipline to be like him.
  • His affordable rates and good physical stats makes him a good choice for the opening game.

Shadow Portrait

Shadow  —  Kyle Simmons

A.I.M  —  Ranger  —  Stealthy

This ex-Ranger and sniper has turned stalking into an art form. The Shadow could be lurking about right next to you and chances are you'd never know it. That snow drift, sand dune, or piece of shrubbery could be him. Kyle Simmons has made it his business to blend into any environment for any length of time. The Shadow brings his own camouflage supplies and he wishes to make it known up-front that he doesn't share.

Additional Info

  • Quiet, loner, low-key professional.
  • Comments are usually made to himself rather than a conversation.
  • A matter-of-fact type of guy, who doesn't draw attention to himself.
  • Voice: a confident sniper's whisper.

Red Portrait

Red  —  Ernie Spragg

A.I.M  —  Technician

This mad, mumbling Scotsman is from the old school of explosives where your instructor would fly by in pieces and you quickly moved up the ranks. Spragg is a survivor. With many years of experience under his wire cutters, he takes pride in teaching those military college kids a thing or two about detonation devices. Don't be thrown by Red's frantic ravings; the situation is rarely as dire as he likes to believe.

Additional Info

  • Easily excitable. Goes off rants. Bit of a hothead
  • Pessimist. Sees situations for their worst.
  • Heavy Scottish accent.
  • Well-liked by most of the other explosive experts despite his attitude.

A.I.M  —  Sniper  —  Stealthy

Otherwise known as The Assassin, if you come face-to-face with Carl Sheppards, chances are you're on your last breath. The Reaper takes pride in his patience. He strides silently and uses his stealth skills to gain easy access to his victims. Carl also gets a kick out of looking them in the eye just before they die. One of his former CO's described him as "potentially too dangerous even for A.I.M. service.

Additional Info

  • A loner, though not anti-social.
  • Sees death and killing as something spiritual.
  • Carries himself as if living on another plane of existence, and can be very eloquent and poetic about how he perceives things.
  • He's almost spooky, has an unsettling calmness.

Fidel Portrait

Fidel  —  Fidel Dahan

A.I.M  —  Hand to Hand  —  Demolitions

Due to numerous employee complaints concerning his refusal to follow orders, Fidel "Leave me alone, I'm busy!" Dahan was recently suspended for a thirty-day period. Promising a changed attitude, he was returned to active duty by A.I.M. though because he is so proficient with both firearms and explosives.

Additional Info

  • Has a comical ruthlessness to him. Conveyed by a short, heavy, Cuban accent.
  • Usually mad about something, shows hints of a softer side but even that is tainted.
  • Psychotically obsessed with explosives, excellent at disarming most bombs.
  • Extremely impatient. Type of guy that would force a square into a circle while blaming the square for his frustration.
  • Jagged Alliance 2 has Fidel "Not being quite himself lately". There are some hints suggesting this has something to do with the disappearance of Hurl E. Cutter.
  • Trivial bits of dialogue in various games suggest he may be homosexual.

Whether it's sharing a spot of tea with British blue-bloods or putting a .38 slug into an unwanted nuisance, Sidney does it with poise and dignity. Sidney combines the mannerisms of the upper crust with the lightning quickness of a Wild West gunslinger. Years of avid cricket-playing have also given him a much-feared throwing arm.

Additional Info

  • Snob, prim and proper.
  • No matter what the situation, he never loses his dignity.
  • Formal British accent.
  • in spite of his accent, his disdain for Australians and description of the Crepitus lead to the assumption that he is probably from New Zealand.

Buzz Garneau's life has undergone some major changes in the past year. She had a major falling out with Lynx; they can barely stand to be on the same planet. Her tell-all book, "Under Cover, Under Lynx," has been rejected by every publisher who's seen it. While all of this has left her bitter, she has been able to channel her anger into her work with firearms.

Additional Info

The amiable Scully Sullivan is a long-time A.I.M. member. He's one of our most distinguished mercenaries and perhaps the most respected among his peers. Scully holds the A.I.M. record for the highest number of combat engagements in almost as many different countries. Need someone to snap the last breath from an enemy? Then Sullivan's your man. Scully is well-known for his skills with a bladed weapon.

Additional Info

  • Scully is a super friendly guy. He's been married eight times and has twenty one kids.
  • Though British, he has an out-going demeanor easily mistaken for Australian. His cockney accent, tanned complexion and propensity to call people "mate" doesn't help.
  • Deadly, yet exhibits no fascination for gore.
  • We are told, over and over, that Scully is well known for his skill with blades.
  • He likely holds the record for combat engagements in Jagged Alliance 2 now due to the departure of his old friend Mike.

Jean-Pierre may be a little rough around the edges, but he is extremely sharp with a blade-in-hand. He acquired most of his skills while working as the head doorman at a nightclub. Street fighting is definitely one of his strengths. La Malice seems to have found his calling with A.I.M. though, as he has honed his talents to exquisite perfection.

Additional Info

  • Has a backwoods, Quebecois French accent.
  • Not too smart, but sadistically helpful.
  • Takes pride in his small accomplishments.
  • Thinks of himself of something of a ladies man, this, in turn, makes some of the more affirmative women dislike him and his crude manner makes Gaston think of him as a disgrace to all French men, not to mention as competition.

Edgar Smorth traded in his bike, leathers, and vest to become a full-time A.I.M. mercenary. In the year he's been with the organization, Nails has taken advantage of his knowledge about car bombs to become a military explosives expert.

This vegetarian New Age healer has an amazing grasp of medicine for a man who's never seen the inside of a university med school. He also has a decent grasp for killing quickly and quietly.

  • Uses some scientific terminology.
  • Enthusiastic and somewhat brash.
  • Surprises himself on occasion as he feels his way through combat.

Meltdown Portrait

Meltdown  —  Norma Jessop

A.I.M  —  Heavy Weapons  —  Gunslinger  —  Ambidextrous

Don't mess with Meltdown. She may be smiling in her file photo, but that smile is certainly deceptive. This mercenary is legendary; an enemy once died at her feet from fear before Meltdown had even raised her weapon. As for her taste in weapons, the bigger, the better. In fact, Meltdown has a tendency for overkill in virtually every aspect of her life. Jessop is remarkably ambidextrous; she can easily fire two weapons simultaneously.

Additional Info

  • A foul-mouthed, kickass woman who could clear a bar in no time.
  • You'd shake in fear just looking at her.
  • Loves violence and killing.
  • Generally misanthropic, and has especially little time for cowards. Admires Rothman for his ability to instil discipline, and Rothman appreciates her no-nonsense attitude.

And even though sleeping whilst assigned to squad (eg. after traveling) would be safe, there's no wake-up call and Larry's very quick to get his hands on something "groovy".

Cougar Portrait

Cougar  —  Jim Wallace

M.E.R.C  —  Auto Weapons  —  Scouting  —  Stealthy

Jim Wallace is one of the few cadets ever to get a perfect score on every final exam at military college. Of course, it didn't hurt that his father wrote the school's military code of conduct. He's a master at conventional mercenary skills and a pro with automatic weaponry. Always by-the-book Cougar is highly professional, possibly M.E.R.C's top performer.

Additional Info

  • Even though he is a man with strong opinions, Cougar has the military background (and discipline) to keep them to himself.

Tim Sutton suffers from a bad case of visual offensiveness and no one has been willing to give him a break. His bad haircut and neck tattoo has hindered this mercenary's career pursuits despite an otherwise impressive resume including martial arts and night ops training. His marksmanship and medical abilities are also excellent.

Additional Info

  • A skilled and able mercenary - however, he is reviled by (and reviles) many members of AIM, making him difficult to work with.

Bubba Portrait

Bubba  —  Thorton Jones

M.E.R.C  —  Hand to Hand  —  Bodybuilding

Aside from his sheer size, Thorton is notable for being the first prison guard to ever be dismissed from the Alabama State Correctional Department for brutality towards inmates. The precise details of this chain-gang boss' infractions are unclear as we weren't about to ask.

Additional Info

  • Bubba, while very (very) stupid and hated by some, is cheap and a decent shot (the best amongst those offered by M.E.R.C.). His low Agility makes it hard for him to keep up with other mercs but as long as you give him time its not a huge problem. He is also a tolerable mechanic and even has some skill with explosives. Despite having a poor dex, he has the Hand-to-Hand skill, and he can be a great choice for the EFC in San Mona as his great health, massive strength and a modicum of skill make him a killer in melee.
  • Once his Marksmanship is developed to at least 90, Bubba performs well as a rifleman. He can be given any firearm and clad in any suit of armor and will still have place in inventory to carry stuff, without encumberance.
  • Speaks with an incredibly heavy stutter, and seems to have a lot of issues in general.
  • Aggressive.
  • Best used as a close-quarters tank, due to his ability to sustain a lot of punishment.
  • Gives the impression of having been both the bully and the lonely outsider throughout most of his childhood.

Miguel

Miguel Portrait

Miguel  —  Miguel Cordona

RPC  —  Deputy  —  Melee  —  Night Ops

Miguel is an excellent squad leader, with an incredibly high leadership, ideal for training mercs and militia, keeping the peace between otherwise hostile team members, and talking to locals. Other good stats are his experience level, wisdom and marksmanship. He is good at knifing and night ops and has a solid amount of health. He is one of the best RPCS in Jagged Alliance 2. Just like the other rebels, Miguel doesn't require a salary.

Additional Info

  • Like all of the rebels recruited from Omerta, Miguel will turn on you if you attack him or any of his fellow rebels in the same sector. This will drop him from your squad, and he will not stop until either your squad or he is dead. Interestingly, he has nothing to say, and will not attack when this happens, but will still be registered as an enemy, and will still raise his gun at you as if he is to fire on you. Turns, however, will persist until he is killed or you leave the sector.

One of the last rebels of Arulco. Close friend and advisor to Miguel Cordona.

Additional Info

  • Available for recruitment, along with Miguel, after 5 of the 9 cities are captured (Omerta & San Mona don't count).
  • A stern and pragmatic man, Carlos is a foil to Miguel's charisma, idealism and well-intentioned grandiloquence. Mistrustful by nature, he has been rendered both cold and paranoid by the auspices of a long and oppressive guerrilla war.
  • Although his stats are by no means awful, his late appearance can make him somewhat redundant.

As she states in the rebel hideout, she came to Arulco from the United States five years prior to the events of Jagged Alliance 2, so she could be a part of an effort to provide humanitarian aid. However, she then noticed that the country needed help to get rid of the dictator, Deidranna Reitman, and took up the flag of the rebels in order to do some greater good, and fight oppression.

Additional Info

  • She is a college graduate, with a degree in the humanities.
  • Miguel Cordona allows you to recruit her as a field medic and liaison with the locals at the beginning of the game, and she can be one of the first people to join your squad.

Dimitri

Dimitri Portrait

Dimitri  —  Dimitri Guzzo

RPC  —  Throwing  —  Demolitions

A simple man of uncomplicated needs, Dimitri was a resident of Cambria before the war and the rise of Deidranna 's regime. He joined the rebels led by Miguel Cordona after the Queen's rise to power and now acts as a guard. He despises oppression and is particularly sickened by the subversive and tyrannical tactics used to keep the citizenry in line, such as the use of civilian plants as spies amongst the populace.

Additional Info

  • Dimitri can be recruited once you get food from Drassen to Omerta (after talking with Father Walker) during the quest Food from Father Walker.
  • Dimitri used to have a job at Cambria University, washing windows. He also has a sister living somewhere in Arulco, likely in Cambria. His low opinion of Stephen Rothman is likely due to Rothman's past work defending foreign mining interests - especially given the mineral nature of Deidranna's interest in occupying the country.

RPC  —  Demolitions  —  Melee

A wandering dealer in explosives, Devin has a uniquely jaded personality and a characteristic, Northern Irish accent. A wartime profiteer, his interest in Arulco seems to extend only to how much money there is to be made.

Additional Info

  • The best (and only) local source for explosive items. Can carry any of the items below in random amounts. Unlike many other traders, Devin is not interested in buying anything from you, even explosives.
  • Connell can be persuaded to join you if you free 4 cities. As with most recruitable locals, a merc with some leadership is recommended. Note that after you recruit him, his items on sale will disappear, so buy everything you want from him before recruiting him.

Robot  —  MadLab's Robot

RPC

A squat, boxy little device, the robot moves around on dual tank treads, and its circuitry is protected by thick layers of bullet-resistant steel. The small, rotating video camera lens allows it to "see", feeding visual info back to whoever wears its control headset.

Additional Info

  • In order to issue orders to the robot, someone in the bot's squad must equip the controller headset, in place of an Extended Ear.
  • If the robot is destroyed, Madlab will build another one, though each new bot will require another video camera and rifle. Be careful! Don't remove the robot from the mercenary list at the map screen if it's destroyed. If you made the error of removing, then the robot won't return to your squad anymore, even if you talk to Madlab.

Location

The robot is initially found in whatever sector Nathaniel "MadLab" Kairns is hiding in, in his workshop.

Hamous  —  Hamous

RPC  —  Stealthy

Hamous had his first taste of combat in Metavira, and based on a glowing recommendation from a major client, Jack Richards, he was granted an internship with this organization, which recently expired. Regrettably, poor Hamous never did save up enough money to purchase that mini-van that he desperately wanted. So he did the next best thing and stole one just outside of Paris. Actually it was an ice cream truck and he was last seen headed towards Istanbul in it.

Additional Info

  • Like all Metaviran natives, Hamous is resistant to warm temperatures, and is unaffected by the heat waves that regularly roll through in Jagged Alliance. He carries this ability with him into Jagged Alliance 2.
  • Commonly mistaken for a Mexican, such as by Skipper.
  • Seems to view mercenary work as a fun way to fill his time.
  • Apart from decent marksmanship, his stats are unremarkable at the best of times.

A prisoner found in the bloody dungeon level of Tixa prison. A son to regime-sympathetic Balime aristocrats, he was turned over to Deidranna's authorities by his parents for growing illegal plants and imprisoned. Hates Deidranna as well as he hates his parents and would be willing to put a bullet in both.

Additional Info

  • After freeing him and listening to his story, a merc with at least nominal leadership can persuade him to join up for $20/day. Unlike Dynamo, there is no way to persuade him to work for free.
  • Enables you to buy gasoline if brought to Estoni and sent to talk to Jake, allowing Estoni to act as a chopper pad provided the airspace is clear. As a merc, Shank has little other use initially except as a mule or driver.

Additional Info

  • His salary under Queen Deidranna was $2000/day.
  • Holds a strong sense of pride and morality.

A surgeon who works in Cambria Hospital. Despises Queen Deidranna's rule, and according to Nurse Jenny and other staff in the hospital, often talks about trying to take down the Queen's regime.

Additional Info

  • Initially, Vince is just another doctor working at Cambria Hospital. He will treat your merc's injuries for the price of up-front cash (provided the hospitals' supplies are intact) and as you perform more good deeds for Cambria, his cost for treatment will decrease.
  • Once the Find Joey quest is completed, like other doctors he will offer free treatment once, and thereafter offer greatly discounted treatment.

Conrad

Conrad Portrait

Conrad  —  Lt. Conrad Gillitt

RPC  —  Machinegunner  —  Teaching

When the player first encounters Conrad, he is a mercenary working for Deidranna, specifically under General Theo Humphey at the training center in Alma. He claims, when you meet him, that his contract with the Army has recently expired and that he is in search of new employment. His skillset implies that he was assigned to the training of new Army recruits at the facility though he was apparently a little disgruntled with the arrangement as Deidranna was often late in paying him.

Additional Info

  • A merc with a modestly high leadership skill will be needed for him to consider joining you at all and will ask for $5500 per day once he is convinced. However, if someone with high leadership refuses the offer, he will drop it to $3300/day.
  • Conrad is easily and quickly bored, and talking to him too long will cause him to become more interested in killing you than talking to you.

Maddog  —  Kevin Cameron

RPC  —  Engineer

Kevin "Maddog" Cameron is an Arulco native, Jake Cameron's slightly unhinged son and a parts scrapper for the junkyard. He can be persuaded to join your troops for free. He is the only mercenary who comes equipped with an HK CAWS Weapon System. He also comes with a tool kit and absolutely no armor.

Additional Info

  • Maddog is fickle and will refuse to join you if approached by a mercenary with low leadership, or a male mercenary. (yes, this means he basically only talks to hot chicks) Doing so also ruins your chances of convincing him to join up - first impressions are important.
  • Most likely named after Mad Dog Vachon.
  • Kevin talks with a Southern American accent.

While undergoing negotiations for yet another pay increase, Mike suddenly withdrew from the discussion when he was informed many employers had already complained about his exaggerated rates. His current whereabouts are unknown, just like pretty much everything else about him. The last correspondence received by this office, postmarked in a small country whose name escapes us, contained threats we'd rather not recall.

Additional Info

  • Can be hired in the 1.13 mod. The player will need characters with high leadership like Miguel to hire him when he is beaten to Critical state.

As a star of Japanese westerns, he played the lead in "Much Dust, Many Bullets." and has received glowing reviews for his roles in the classic films "Attack of the Clydesdales" and "Have Honda, Will Travel." Tex is quick with a .357 in each hand, and travels with his own stage makeup

Additional Info

  • Comes with a pair of incredibly powerful akimbo handguns in Unfinished Business.
  • Tries to talk like a cowboy through a heavy Asian accent. Comedy may ensue.
  • Though his description in Jagged Alliance, and his film association with a Honda (a Japanese brand) mark him as Japanese, game data in Unfinished Business contradictably marks him as Chinese.

Biggins will gladly share his experiences, even without being asked. He just asks that a servant carry all the heavy gear.

Additional Info

  • His main strength is his high experience.
  • He is most useful when leading squads of lower-level mercs, as his "Deputy" skill makes his experience rub off on them.

The victim was unfortunately a VIP and therefore Luc had go underground by the mercenaries.

Additional Info

  • Works well with Henning von Branitz as both share a strong sense of military professionalism, but Gasket and Bull are proverbial red cloths in the bullring, due to their disregard for authority.

Skitz  —  Bruce Bonner

M.E.R.C  —  Demolitions

Back on probation, Bruce Bonner has skirted the edge of reality and toyed with demonic fantasy since childhood. There exists a serious difference in opinion as to whether he should remain within the organization. However, qualified explosives experts remain hard to find.

Additional Info

  • Speaks in a low, growling and deeply disturbed voice.
  • Skitz is one of a few mercs who will leave if he doesn’t kill enough enemies. A certain percentage of your squad’s total slain enemies must have been killed by Skitz or he will leave. This makes him hard to keep for any length of time. His marksmanship and his stats in general are so low that he has a hard time even getting to enemies, let alone killing them. Try to let Skitz finish off nearly dead enemies to sate his urge to kill.
  • Skitz is annoyed by Sparky and will kill her if on a squad with her for too long. He will warn you first the night before he kills her.

Additional Info

  • Incredible Dexterity, Medical skill and the highest Wisdom in the game (together with Bob) mean that he either is, or can quickly become an expert in about anything. However, his hefty salary and low Experience level for the buck will probably make him affordable too late in the game to get enough training or lose in competition to more cost-effective mercs.

  • Doctor Leevon, whose medical degree was always the subject of much debate, left this organization at the beginning of the year without notification. Apparently, he has changed his name and embarked on a new career. Doctor Raffiman, and his Cajun-funk band, Rotis and Haggis, has captured the imagination of the music world with the distinctive sound of their synthesized spoons and their current hit, Bajun Bayous.

He managed to attain the rank of sergeant before being discovered by Kingpin and ratted out in an attempt to curry favor with the Queen.

He has been hiding there ever since and it has been years since he has seen his home.

Snake  —  Johnny Edwards

A.I.M  —  Melee  —  Stealthy  —  Athletics

Agile and able, slippery and swift, Johnny Edwards has managed to slither into range unnoticed, sight up tp his unsuspecting target, then disappear before the smoke dissipates, time after time, mission after mission!

Additional Info

  • Old Mister Reliable is what they called him. Getting in and out without anyone knowing he was there was what he did best. Regrettably, all that is written on his tombstone in Maupaa is "Casualty of War". Snake died a victim of unnecessary diplomacy in an event which led to the court martial of Alan "Spam" Webster. While Webster negotiated the peaceful surrender of their weapons with a group of natives, Snake took a bullet from one of them, right between the eyes.

Spam  —  Alan Webster

A.I.M  —  Technician  —  Paramedic  —  Stealthy

The most recent addition to A.I.M., Alan Webster has served with the United Nations' Peacekeeping forces in some of the world's most troubled spots. Tired of being shot at and finding very little peace to keep, Spam decided it was time for a career change.

Additional Info

  • Alan Webster's time within the organization was short and hardly memorable. His years of peacekeeping duty seemed to have hampered his aggression and in turn, jeopardized the safety of his squad. Following the incident in Maupaa which led to the death of Johnny "Snake" Edwards, A.I.M. could no longer ignore his inability to take armed men seriously. Spam was court-martialed and received a dishonorable discharge in March 1998.

Spike  —  Maj. Spike Scallion

A.I.M  —  Deputy  —  Marksman  —  Scouting

A seasoned veteran of international conflict, Major Spike Scallion was deservingly decorated for the unflinching courage he exhibited while evacuating the villagers of Kampoa under extremely heavy fire. This major commands respect and a sizeable fee.

Additional Info

  • The departure of Spike Scallion from A.I.M. was a major loss to the organization. His demeanour and unwavering command of any situation always served as a comfort for those who found themselves neck deep in it alongside him. Major Scallion was offered a lucrative long-term contract serving as a military consultant for the North Koreans and no amount of negotiation could convince him to stay.
