Manhunt - Characters

In your quest to survive the night you are going to come across many different characters and packs of hunters. Each armed with their own motives and not to mention ways of taking you down.

The characters of the game have been split up into two categories; they consist of the characters and hunters which are the groups of enemy in the game. Since the hunters are vast and varied they have been described as a whole rather than analysing each member of the gangs.

 

James Earl Cash
James Earl Cash

Convicted and sentenced to death, James Earl Cash had spent the past three years on death row awaiting sentencing and tonight was his night, justice was served and Cash had met his fate. Or so the rest of the world believes. A director by the name Starkweather has given Cash a reprieve, a second lease of life - but at a price. Cash must partake in a heinous game of life or death, hunt or be hunted is the mandate, death, torture and misery is the goal and all for the pleasure of others.

Lionel Starkweather
Lionel Starkweather

A one time wealthy and productive Hollywood film director, now shunned from the industry, bitter and angry at those that brought forward his downfall Starkweather seeks revenge on those that engineered the collapse of his empire. Starkweathers decent into madness is further aggravated by being reduced to filming underground pornographic and snuff movies for special clientele with emphasis on the Japanese market. Through the use of his new ‘MANHUNT’ snuff movies Starkweather has amassed enough power and wealth to extract revenge on those responsible. Over the past 12 months various powerful Hollywood power-players have gone missing, themselves becoming stars of Starkweather own personal movies which the director refers to as his ‘directors cut’ collection.

News Journalist
Journalist

Suspicious of recent events happening around Carcer the journalist, who is a local reporter for ‘Carcer City News’, has been monitoring Starkweathers actions for several months, building up a case file in order to further her career. Tonight she was on-hand to report the execution of James Earl Cash, which took place just 5 hours ago. She knows that if she can track Cash down and get a testament from him as well as footage to prove that he is still alive then there will be sufficient evidence in order to bring Starkweathers new found empire to the ground once and for all. The only problem for her is how to track Cash down now that Starkweather is on to her and with the conspiracy going all the way to the top of local law enforcement there is no one else to turn to. She has to work alone.

Mr. Nasty
Mr. Nasty

The ever evasive Mr. Nasty is the man behind it all, he is believed to be the financial backer and producer of the snuff ring under his company name; Valiant Video Enterprises. He runs his business under strict scrutiny, reserved strictly for members, selling all manner of things from gimp masks to explicit movies from the hunts. Not much information is known of Mr. Nasty but he appears to like to dress up like a member of the Hoods. He strikes a resemblance to the crowbar wielding Hood in ‘Doorway into Hell’. Since he wears a mask however, it is impossible to know if this was indeed Nasty himself. Could this be why Valiant-ent.tv hasn’t been updated in so long?

Piggsy
Piggsy

With his patented chainsaw in hand, Piggsy is a chainsaw-welding madman. Piggsy is the star of many of Starkweather’s releases and has the war wounds to prove it, ‘Piggsy bloopers’ and "Piggsy’s Greatest Hits" being two of the more popular to star the loveable rogue. Piggsy is kept on tight leash and lives in the attic of Starkweathers mansion under the supervision of the Cerberus. Piggsy also has an acute sense of smell and can often be seen sniffing his foes out before slicing them up with his chainsaw. Speaking of his chainsaw, ever the sadomasochist, Piggsy likes to keep the blades of his chainsaw blunt in order to inflict the maximum amount of pain upon his prey. He also likes to sign his chainsaws with an X, presumably with the blood of his victim.

Ramirez
Ramirez

Working as Starkweater’s go-to man, Ramirez operates directly under the supervision of Starkweather and has full authority over the gangs of Carcer City. He is no stranger to having a staring role in Starkweather’s productions after previously staring in his own movie ‘‘Let’s Play “Ramirez Sez”’. Being Starkweather’s right hand man Ramirez can often be seen at time of uncertainty rallying the gangs together and given out orders. Ramirez has a squadron of hunters himself, known as the Wardogs, wherever Ramirez goes you can be sure that the Wardogs aren’t too far behind. Ramirez is a master of survival and has high end motivational skills, he also prefers to indulge in melee attacks rather than resorting to firepower, however he is no stranger to a 12 gauge.

Homeless Bum/Tramp
Tramp

Not much is known of the tramp; Cash stumbles across the bum and is required to free the tramp from captivity by Starkweather. Starkweather goes on to tell Cash that in order for him to make it through this he must personally escort the bum to safety. The tramp is believed to work for Starkweather, perhaps as a hunter himself at one point and is now used as a prop for Starkweather’s movies after previously staring in ‘The Tramp Who Knew Too Much’.

The rabbit taunts the star of the ‘manhunts’, leading the star into traps where they can be ambushed by a pack of waiting hunters. As nervous as the rabbit is, that isn’t to say he isn’t without bite, when cornered the rabbit will pull hit shotgun out and use it on the predator that seeks salvage on him.

The CCPD tend to operate in groups of two and upward, rarely breaking formation in order to secure all grounds. Under ideal situations they like to be well informed of the background of the perpetrator and reason for arrest, however they tend act first and ask questions later.

The Hoods
The Hoods

The Hoods are a local gang and are made up of a mixed bag of off-duty cops and local thugs. They partake in the hunt largely for financial gain rather than the vicious brutality enjoyed by the other hunters. The hoods are unruly for the most part; they are noisy and impulsive. They suffer from a lack of concentration during the hunt, treating it like weekend deer hunting. The Hoods dress in dark, non-descriptive street cloths and wear an assortment of balaclavas and ski masks. Their style of hunting is different from the others, whereas others rely on formation and instinct the Hoods operate on their own, making them easy to isolate and pick off.

Innocentz
Innocentz

The Innocentz are a street gang absorbed in sect imagery. Although young, they are fierce fighters who prefer to use their combined force rather than individual skill. The gang is made up of two specific groups - The Skullyz form the basic horde, but Starkweather brought in the Babyfaces to add muscle and a distressing contrast to the gang. The Skullyz resent this intrusion and are genuinely uneasy around them, for good reason. Basically, the Skullyz are playing the part of lunatics and the Babyfaces are the real deal, but they all behave like human jackals. Starkweather has hired the gang from somewhere in the East Los Albos area. They make their debut at the Carcer City Mall.

The Monkeys
Monkeys

Native to the Carcer City Zoo and only come out to play during the bonus scene ‘Monkey See, Monkey Die’. The Monkeys arm themselves with sawn off shotguns and machetes. The Monkeys are very territorial and loyal to the pack, they have tendencies to loose their cool, in particular when there's a lack of bananas to eat, in such situations they become very unpredictable and take their rage out on the nearest bystander.

Skinz
Skinz

The Skinz are an archetypal neo-nazi white power gang. Overall, they tend to work as baboon packs, and are very aggressive and willing to attack rashly. They partake in the hunt mostly for a sadistic violence. The Skinz are disorderly, boisterous, and reckless. The Skinz are more dangerous and violent then the Hoods and under the order of Ramirez they move into the Junkyard to prove they can do better than the hoods. They wear trademark hockey masks as seen in the movies with these they can be quite intimidating but not all of the gang wear these masks instead they prefer to have a tattoo on their forehead with their gang name.

The Smilies
The Smilies

Smileys are a loose throng of the insane, serial killers, psychotics, and sadists. They are truly twisted, and one of the most intense packs of hunters you'll face. The Smileys hunt using their trademark smiley masks, often splattered with the blood of previous victims or their own from self-mutilation rituals. They take perverse pleasure in the pain and torture that they inflict upon others. Their dialogue ranges from demented animal noises to chanted nursery rhymes. Many of the Smileys talk to themselves or to their imaginary friends ... you may think that one is calling you out, when all he's really doing is mumbling to himself.

Wardogs
Wardogs

Operating under the command of Ramirez and based in the neglected Carcer City Zoo, the Wardogs are the most dangerous and efficient killers on Starkweather’s payroll. They consist of ex-military Special Forces and obsessive hunters for hire, a few members stay true to their military backgrounds and often communicate in Special Forces code-phrases, but often others lack actual knowledge, so they improvise. They are experts in both tactics and weaponry. Their preferred tactics are ambushes, baiting and luring, and full-on frontal assaults. Despite their training, their animal instincts sometimes take over while pursing prey and they become noisy and highly excitable. "Take No Prisoners" is their motto, and they hunt their prey with a viciousness matched by none.
