Known to consistently be the top-tier sneakthief/lock-opener in each game.


"Cautious, light-footed and extremely agile, Earl Walker is considered to be one of the best second story men in the business. And even when he's been fingered, his sharp eyes and deadly aim have eliminated the dilemma of witnesses!" - Jagged Alliance

"Magic's calm, cool, and collected demeanor sets the tone for battle. In peak physical condition, he displays razor-sharp reflexes and catlike agility. Magic can ferret out danger with astonishing acumen. And with his lethal marksmanship, he quickly and efficiently puts an end to any threat. He's nicknamed Magic due to the way doors seem to open up in front of him." - Jagged Alliance 2

  • While other mercs such as Trevor or Shadow have him beat in the lock-opening and sneaking specialities individually, Magic is the only merc able to do both with ease, with the exception of perhaps Mike.
  • Magic's voice actor Tyrone Benskin is best known for his role in "300", and the line "Our arrows will blot out the sun".
