Jean Pierre "Malice" Viau is an A.I.M. mercenary in the Jagged Alliance series, first appearing in Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games, and also appearing in Jagged Alliance 2.

He is best known for his accent and for being extremely knife-happy.

Official description

"Don't let his good looks fool you, La Malice enjoys inflicting bodily harm. A former strip club doorman from St. Jean, Viau lost his job after stabbing far too many of the bar's clientele. The bar owner remains in critical condition." - A.I.M. Dossier, Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games

"Jean-Pierre may be a little rough around the edges, but he is extremely sharp with a blade-in-hand. He acquired most of his skills while working as the head doorman at a nightclub. Street fighting is definitely one of his strengths. La Malice seems to have found his calling with A.I.M. though, as he has honed his talents to exquisite perfection. " - A.I.M. Dossier, Jagged Alliance 2

Additional info

  • Has a backwoods, Quebecois French accent.
  • Not too smart, but sadistically helpful.
  • Takes pride in his small accomplishments.
  • Thinks of himself of something of a ladies man, this, in turn, makes some of the more affirmative women dislike him and his crude manner makes Gaston think of him as a disgrace to all French men, not to mention as competition.
