Background/History: Kevin appears extensively in Sin City. He makes a cameo in at least one other story, but as yet has not appeared as a primary character in any further stories. As Marv kills Kevin towards the end of Sin City, his chances of reappearing are somewhat slim.
Personality/Motivation: Kevin is a utter and total sociopath. He kills (and eats) women, and has murdered at least 7, leaving their heads mounted on the wall of a cell at the Farm. In addition, he removes Lucille's left hand, and eats it in front of her. Presumably, he was going to kill and eat the rest of her later.
As far as I can tell, Kevin is mute, and never says a word, not even when Marv tortures him for information. Cardinal Roark says he spoke with the voice of an angel, but I have to wonder at that.
Quote: Kevin is mute and cannot talk.
Powers/Tactics: Kevin's martial arts is derived from his moves in Sin City. I never saw him throw a punch, so I don't know if he does (or bothers). He never blocked any blows either, and simply settled for ducking. Kevin's finger nails are long, really long and he uses them as effective claws. His Disarm and Eye Gouge maneuvers are used with his nails. Kevin's Leaping is taken from his fight with Marv. Game Master's may want to place a -1/4 Limitation of "No Noncombat Movement," but considering that Marv climbs a 20-30 story building from the outside, this may not be a big deal.
Appearance: Kevin is of average height with short hair and a bit of stubble. He wears glasses and has a fairly average face. He dresses in a sweater, jeans and, Keds sneakers.
Designer's Notes: Designing Kevin was difficult. As he only fights Marv, his actual stats were hard to determine. I gave him his high DEX and SPD since he hit Marv repeatedly and seemingly at will, and since Marv is quite capable of outmaneuvering the police, even when outnumbered (which is why Marv has a SPD of 4), I felt Kevin's SPD of 5 was justified. His 21 DEX was based mainly on conjecture, as well as a gut feeling that Kevin could outfight Dwight (DEX 20, SPD 4) but not Miho (DEX 21-23, SPD 5). His low CON is due to the fact Marv lays him out with one punch (Granted, it was a head shot and Marv has a 25 STR, but Kevin is out for a long time from that one punch.). His high EGO is due to the fact Kevin is pretty much unaffected by Marv's torture session.
