Appearances: Jagged Alliance, Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games. Nonplayable and runs McGillicutty's Mortuary in Jagged Alliance 2.


"A member in good standing, Murray McGillicutty has been with A.I.M. since it was founded. As one of the oldest fighting men alive, his cock-and-bull stories about prehistoric warfare and his ability to cheat death are mystical among the younger members." - Jagged Alliance

"After years of trying to convince Pops McGillicutty to retire, A.I.M. was finally forced to instate a mandatory retirement policy for those reaching the age of 85. Wanting to do his part to eliminate river burials, Pops opened a web-based Funeral Salon specializing in respectful internment of mercenaries." - Jagged Alliance 2 Alumni gallery

Additional information

  • Tremendously old, forgetful as he is old, and in Deadly Games, cheap as he is forgetful.
  • Uncomfortably handsy around pretty women, as Fox and Beth will testify after enough time.
  • The mortuary he opens and runs in Jagged Alliance 2 is in reference to the shoddy river burials a player can perform on mercs if they are unwilling or unable to pay to have a dead merc shipped out of the island - they are instead unceremoniously dumped into one of Metavira's rivers.
  • At first glance, his low health, agility and dexterity may make him seem like a horrible mercenary. However, he has high wisdom, marksmanship, and the highest experience level in all of A.I.M. Also, in Deadly Games, he costs next to nothing to hire. This makes him useful if you give him a long-ranged weapon, and put him in a position where he does not have to move around a lot (due to low AP) and preferably where there is a lot of covers to hide behind. He can be useful as a sniper.
  • One of those 16-year-old "lie about your age" WWI teens
