He is black. If you use proedit to look at merc's stats, there is a category that shows their race.

I thought he was white the first time I saw him. He kind of looks like actor Ray Liotta.

I had a feeling that he was black. But the first time I saw him (when I was just glancing through the mug shots) I thought he was white, then I noticed his skin tone, then his hair, then his voice, then his "brothers".

Magic rules!

Another tipoff is his extreme hatred of racists (i.e. Bubba). Not that you have to be black to be a racist hater or nothin'...

it's hard to figure out from Magic's portraits. You could always assume he's black just because Blood and Ice are his boys, but assumptions can turn out wrong.

What a minute... I know for certain that Ice was always a black character. I always thought Magic was too, although it was more ambiguous.

@roy

Yeah, I think you're kinda way off here. Ice has definitely always been black. Can't remember Magic being much of a white boy either, much less a greek dude. Don't know why people keep asking, 'cause it seems quite obvious to me.

Btw, Blood is definitely black as well (ex-Black Panthers member, 'ello).

Btw2, regarding your sig; why would you want to pick a bear in the ass? Please, enlighten me.

Is he also your favourite??? he's my favourite too.
Also i thought he was white and thought that the ingame thing (the person you see on the screen not the picture) was a bug.
Cause i choosed a White man for my own merc and he entered game as black and that was a bug.

My best sentences:
"Snappehead alert. Hope everyone got the message"
"Bubba is a good old racist boy, keep him close to me and you'll be pulling him out of a tree"
"Your ass is on my platter snapperhead"

Yeah Magic is expensive but he's worth every dollar. Heck in my service he passed Gus in salary hope Sir tech and mods let him live...

Now that's one hell of an accomplishment. He starts at, what, 3000 less per week. That's one level-up, my friend. Now, having Raven pass Gus in salary, that's well done (le hint).

I'm pretty sure that Magic is mixed, but mostly black. As you said, his figure was light in JA1, black in this one, and both portraits could swing one way or the other. Also shows his hair as a short, curly brown. As for his voice, he sounds like a younger, smoother cross between Barry White and James Earl Jones. Wink

If the character stats say he's black like DaveCA says, then that should pretty much settle it anyways. Wink

Personally, I blame this whole discussion on the portraits. It's the damn lighting! He's always got a strong light reflection!

(Magic)I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter...
His face says "perfect raptor" to me,and it looks more "caucasian" than "afro".
Sun burned,in my imagination.
Damn,he might be the reincarnation of a ruthless roman emperor,I don't remember which one...

It doesnt matter that much what race or nationality a merc is, the important thing is that he kicks asssss.

I never use Magic or any of the Merc's on the top couple of rows in the aim profile... I thought he might be a Elf by the portrait though

So did I until I listened more carefully. Then I realised that it was a cockney accent (London).

But from what I have read, twice now, the Australian accent is essentially a cockney accent that has altered over many years. The two can still be easily confused by others nationalities.


On the Magic thing. I can't believe it took someone 3 years to realise that he was probably mixed race. Very Happy

I like Magic. He has a cool voice, cool sentences and the cool "grunt" body sprite Smile

"Here's a family name for him--Mike Gonnabecoldsoon!" - Damn, I liked that sentence Smile

Oh ye of low faith...

Magic is black?
Never thought of that... But now it makes sence why people suggest black actors to play him in the "If there was a JA2 movie" -thread... Very Happy

i guess Magic had similar cosmetic surgeries like Michael jackson. But instead of turning white whilst being black originally, Magic had his face colour turned from white to black between jadg and Ja2 Laughing

i only play ja2 so for me i always considered him black. Mix race is possible as well, but hti sis not covered by proedit Laughing

i dunno I always figured he was black, especially with his accent, slang and voice. in JA1 (not sure about DG), I'm pretty sure his in-game character was black, and the old JA1/DG portrait of him made him look white because of a light reflection I think.

He is black. If you use proedit to look at merc's stats, there is a category that shows their race.

I thought he was white the first time I saw him. He kind of looks like actor Ray Liotta.



BTW,does anyone here can give me a hint about where I can find the ProEdit?I have been searching for a couple of weeks, but I didn't manage to find anything.

Seems pretty obvious to me that Magic is a black guy. His skin tone definatly should have been a little darker like Bloods. Besides the way he talks is a dead give away that he is.

I agree with MM. I can't believe it was ever in question.

What is lacking is better description of colour in the general world. "Black" covers a whole range of colours some of which are paler in complexion than a dark greek type for instance but which is technically down as "white". Makes you realise just how daft some labels are.

hey cool I got Officer thing.
