Raiden (voice: Quinton Flynn)

A cyborg who wields a “high-frequency blade” capable of cutting down even the largest unmanned weapons. Born in Liberia, he lost his family in that country’s civil war before becoming a child soldier. After the war, he was rescued by a human rights group and taken to America. However, he found himself unable to adapt to peaceful society, and, after coming to the attention of the shadowy group known as the “Patriots,” he became an experimental subject for their “S3 Plan.”

After being turned into a cyborg by the Patriots, Raiden devoted himself to fighting them. He had a child with Rosemary, a woman he met during the S3 Plan, so to provide for his family after the defeat of the Patriots, he joined a private military security company (PMSC) called “Maverick Security Consulting.” He considers his PMSC activities to be for the greater good.

Samuel Rodrigues (voice: Philip Anthony-Rodriguez )

A mysterious cyborg employed by the PMC known as “Desperado Enforcement.” He is a master swordsman who wields a high-frequency blade similar to Raiden’s, fighting with a Brazilian technique influenced by the Japanese “New Shadow School” of swordsmanship. When he faces Raiden in battle, he sees through his technique, commenting that Raiden was “denying his weapon of its purpose.”

LQ-84i (voice: Michael Beattie)

A robot with a learning optical neuro-AI and a prototype verbal interface. He appears in front of Raiden, having been ordered by Desperado to kill him. He talks with Raiden, insisting that he is sentient and does not want to fight him, but will have his consciousness erased if he goes against his orders. He is an important character who holds the key to the game’s story.

Sundowner (voice: Crispin Freeman)

“The man seen as the virtual leader of Desperado Enforcement. He goes by the codename “”Sundowner”“—a reference to the hot, dry winds of California.
He has a special cyborg body superior to that of an average cyborg contractor, and belongs to a group known as feared as the “”Winds of Destruction.”” He uses a dual-wielding technique and is armed with a large high-frequency machete called “”Bloodlust.”“”

Mistral (voice: Salli Saffioti)

A female cyborg working for Desperado Enforcement. Like Sundowner, she is also a member of the “Winds of Destruction.” Her name comes from the dry north wind that blows over the Alps to the Mediterranean. Her weapon “Etranger” is flexible like a whip, but can be hardened and used like a halberd.
