DescriptionEdit

Saints Row 2Edit

Veteran Child is a Sons of Samedi lieutenant, a DJ for the nightclub On Track and a "triple-platinum" DJ for 89.0 Generation X. He's also the main Samedi drug dealer and keeps Stilwater University supplied. He has a little loyalty to The General, but has a mutual hate for Mr. Sunshine. He isn't as ruthless as The General or Mr. Sunshine, shown by his reaction when The General ordered him to cut off someone's hand.[2]

He isn't a student but admits he visits Stilwater University "for pussy". [3] He once had a relationship with Shaundi, and while they were high, he mentioned to her where the Samedi own a drug farm. [4]

Veteran Child is initially unaware of the Saints taking out his drug dealers at the University. The General orders him to find out what happened and if a bagboy had been skimming, to cut their hand off. [2]

When The Protagonist wipes out the Samedi farm, The General and Mr. Sunshine confront Veteran Child and he admits having told Shaundi about it. The General tells him to kill Shaundi, or Mr. Sunshine will burn him alive.[4] Veteran Child heads up to the Saints headquarters, and takes Shaundi hostage before escaping. He lures The Protagonist to Cocks to be ambushed by the Samedi, but The Protagonist manages to escape and confronts Veteran Child at On Track, where Veteran Child uses Shaundi as a human shield. The Protagonist uses flash bangs to daze Veteran Child, then kills him.[5]

After his death, the Ultor Corporation buy 89.0 Generation X and rename it 89.0 Ultor FM.

Saints Row IVEdit

A simulated version of Veteran Child is featured in Shaundi's simulation in Saints Row IV.[6]. Here he is holding Fun Shaundi and using her as a Human Shield, reenacting the Saints Row 2 mission "Veteran Child". Using a Stun Gun, The Protagonist stuns him and Shaundi. The Protagonist then kills Veteran Child only to have Zinyak resurrect him into a new copy that creates copies of himself when killed. Kinzie Kensington then spawns a Disintegrator which allows The Protagonist to kill all of the virtual copies of Veteran Child.[6]

He is then featured in Shaundi's loyalty mission, Psychosomatic[7]. Here he sends out waves of minions after Shaundi, The Protagonist and Fun Shaundi while taunting the Shaundis. After the crowd has been completely defeated the Virtual DJ Veteran Child then sends out superpowered clones of himself to attack the group. The Protagonist defeats these clones as the two Shaundis manage to disable the shield protecting the original Virtual DJ Veteran Child. The Protagonist then attempts to finish Veteran Child off but right before he is able to do so Veteran Child splits into two copies, each with a gun to one of the Shaundis' heads. Veteran Child then attempts to make The Protagonist choose which one lives but then both Shaundis take the guns pointed at their heads and then proceed to kill both Veteran Childs.[8]

After this mission, Veteran Child is unlocked as a reconstructed homie.

TriviaEdit

Veteran Child and Asha
Asha: "I find it very interesting the diversity of the foes that the Saints have faced."
Veteran Child: "Diversity of foes?"
Asha: "Sure, from what I heard the Saints have gone up against satanists, masked wrestlers, sinister aristocrats and apparently some pissed off Rastafarians."
Veteran Child: "I was a member of a voodoo gang. Thank you very much."
Asha: "Ha, and because that's so much better."

CID: "Yes, I have quite a large library of music from your world."
Veteran Child: "Anything by the Feed Dogs?"
CID: "Yes."
Veteran Child: "Let's hear it, you pick."
CID: "No."
Veteran Child: "I thought you were some kind of servant robot, so come on play something."
CID: "The only time I serve anyone is if I get paid, but for Fun Shaundi's ex I will make an exception and just say piss off."
Homie Convo DJVC CID
Veteran Child and Cyrus
Cyrus: "Is there any way I can get an autograph some time?"
Veteran Child: "From me? Sure thing. Were you a fan of my show?"
Cyrus: "Oh no, I never heard it before. My niece was the one who loved it. Personally I hate hippy bullshit."
Veteran Child: "Well, thanks."
Homie Convo DJVC Cyrus
Veteran Child and Keith
Veteran Child: "God, you remind me so much of..."
Keith David: "Oh, not this again. Look, I get it. I remind you of Julius. Yes, yes, yes. I remind everyone of Julius."
Veteran Child: "Julius? No, no, no. I was gonna say you remind me of that actor."
Keith David: "Oh. Well, I am that actor."
Veteran Child: "You, woah, this is trippy. I can't believe I'm hanging out with the guy from that Ghost Busting movie."
Keith David: "No, that's... ahhh. Never mind."
Homie Convo DJVC Keith
Veteran Child and King
Veteran Child: "Hey, been meaning to tell you that I read your book, its really good."
Ben King: "Thank you very much."
Veteran Child: "No, thank you. You're like an empire god, you know all the tricks. I learned a lot. That's how I built a legion of loyal followers."
Ben King: "I think the addictive properties of Loa Dust started things for that."
Veteran Child: "That hurts man. I was talking about the dedicated listeners to my show on GenX FM."
Ben King: "Oh. Heh. Sorry about that. I keep forgetting you're an actual DJ."
Homie Convo DJVC King
Veteran Child and Maero

Veteran Child: "Had to pull a few strings to get the whole set. But, I have my connections."
Maero: "You know someone who deals in tiny plastic toy ponies?"
Veteran Child: "Gee, you'd be surprised what people collect from their childhood."
Homie Convo DJVC Maero
Veteran Child and Matt
Veteran Child: "Pretty crazy, huh? The Saints bringing back us bad guys to help em out."
Matt Miller: "I'm actually not a bad guy anymore, I've worked with the Saints before."
Veteran Child: "Wait, I thought I heard you were the head of the gang, right? And you tried to take out the Saints back in Steelport?"
Matt Miller: "Yes, that's right. But I'm reformed. The Saints beat me and I went back to England, joined MI6 and all that."
Veteran Child: "The Saints beat you and let you leave? They let you live?"
Matt Miller: "Yes?"
Veteran Child: "What the hell. This is bullshit, man."
Homie Convo DJVC Matt
Veteran Child and Roddy
Veteran Child: "A kilt, huh? Heh, heh. That's a bold choice."
Roddy Piper: "Oh really?"
Veteran Child: "It's just, you know, it's a skirt. Not exactly the manliest outfit, especially for taking alien hordes in crime ridden city."
Roddy Piper: "Look man, it's part of my heritage and I'm proud of it. I've had bigger men than you take cracks at me for wearing these colors and I've taken every single one of them to the mat. Just because we're not in the ring doesn't mean I won't lay your ass out. You know what I wear under my kilt? Your girlfriend's lipstick. We clear?"
Veteran Child: "Yes, sir."
Homie Convo DJVC Roddy
Veteran Child and Shaundi
Veteran Child: "I gotta say Shaundi you're looking really good."
Shaundi: "Don't you fucking talk to me."
Veteran Child: "Come on, if we're gonna work together you have to get over..."
Shaundi: "Get over what? That you tried to kill my friends, that you used me as a Human Shield or that you threw my Feed Dogs limited edition vinyl into a fire."
Veteran Child: "Shaundi, I was stoned. Besides, the Feed Dogs are terrible. I can't believe you ever liked..."
Shaundi: "It was a limited edition. We're not talking anymore."
Homie Convo DJVC Shaundi
Veteran Child and Tanya
Tanya: "You're from Stilwater, right? So am I."
Veteran Child: "Yeah, yeah. I've heard of you. You used to run the prostitution ring there, right?"
Tanya: "Among other things, yes. I also ran the Vice Kings."
Veteran Child: "Really? Nice. Something about power makes a woman really sexy."
Tanya: "You know maybe after we're done here you and me should talk some more."
Veteran Child: "I suppose Shaundi told you about the time I tried to get her take a bullet for me."
Tanya: "Ehh. I've had guys do worse."
Homie Convo DJVC Tanya
Fun Shaundi and Veteran Child
Fun Shaundi: "So, you got anything good on you?"
Veteran Child: "I tried to kill you and you're hitting me up for weed?"
Fun Shaundi: "What? I killed you, you're harmless now. Might as well party a little."
Veteran Child: "Shrr. I think I'd be insulted if I didn't have a bag stashed at the crib we can hit later."
Fun Shaundi: "Sounds perfect to me."
Homie Convo Shaundi SR2 DJVC
Gat and Veteran Child
Johnny Gat: "So, how many times?"

Kinzie and Veteran Child
Veteran Child: "So, I hear you're really good with computers and stuff."
Kinzie: "And I hear you're really good with using girlfriends as human shields."
Veteran Child: "Hey, woah. Let's just chill on that. I made amends, Shaundi and I are good now."
Kinzie: "Really, because the Shaundi I know really isn't the forgive and forget type."
Veteran Child: "Yeah, she was so much cooler back in the day."
Kinzie: "I guess being taken hostage really changes you."
Homie Convo Kinzie DJVC
Phillipe and Veteran Child
Veteran Child: "Hey, if you ever get back into the whole criminal thing again, I can totally get you the hookup for good product."
Phillipe: "Product?"
Veteran Child: "Yeah, you know, Loa Dust, high quality weed, probably some of that sweet alien shit my ex found. Just saying, I'm your man."
Phillipe: "I'll, uh, keep that in mind."
Veteran Child: "You don't employ any crazy dudes with Machetes do you?"
Homie Convo Phillipe DJVC
Pierce and Veteran Child
Pierce: "You know, I'm a pretty popular singer now."
Veteran Child: "That's nice."
Pierce: "I was thinking we can hang some time. I let you hear some of my tracks."
Veteran Child: "Why are you talking to me? Did you forget what happened between me and Shaundi or something?"
Pierce: "Oh that, bitch she's killed you like fifty times for it since we've been here. Think it's gotta be water under the bridge now, right?"
Veteran Child: "Do you even know her?"
