The Club is shipping to stores across Europe and Australia as we write this, but Bizarre Creations' fast-paced third-person shooter won't be arriving in North America for a couple of weeks yet. In previous character spotlights, we've introduced you to Kuro, Seager, Dragov, Renwick, Finn, and Adjo--an unsavory bunch to say the least. The remaining two characters are perhaps the nastiest of the lot. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to Killen and Nemo:

Killen by name, killer by nature.
Killen by name, killer by nature.

Killen
Tough, grizzled, and middle-aged, Killen has a real down-and-dirty outlaw look about him. Killen is The Club's favorite son, one of the game's rare survivors and the holder of what's still the competition's highest kill score. He's a legend in the secret world of The Club, and now the money men want him back. Killen knows that and has been on the run for years, moving from continent to continent, changing from one identity to another, and running with other outlaw groups. He's been living way below the radar of the police and government authorities, which The Club uses to track and control its targets.

They've finally caught him now, and it only took one whispered word to bring the most fearsome killer in the history of The Club to heel. "Rebecca" is Killen's daughter, fathered years ago, and even though he hasn't seen her since she was a baby, she's just about the only worthwhile thing left in his life. He thought she was safe; he thought no one knew about her. He was wrong. The Club knows about her. The Club can reach out any time and do what it wants to her. For her sake, Killen has to go back and play the game again, but can anyone survive The Club a second time?

He's a mystery, but we're guessing he's British.

Nemo
Nemo is damaged goods. His mind is gone; only the urge or need to kill remains. Kept in solitary confinement by The Club, Nemo's identity is even a mystery because his face is concealed by a mask at all times. There seems to be a great deal of controversy within The Club about Nemo; even the members are unsure of what to do with him. Although just about everything about Nemo remains a mystery, he seems to remain significant to the inner circle of The Club, representing some kind of dirty secret it doesn't want anyone to know about. There are those within that circle who think that Nemo should be quietly disposed of, but in true Club style, it is decided that this would be a waste and that the issue should be decided in the arenas of the tournament.

For more information on The Club, check out our recent solo and multiplayer previews of the game. A full review is coming soon.
