Veteran Child is a Sons of Samedi lieutenant and a DJ for the nightclub On Track. He is a skilled DJ for Gen-X radio, being a "triple-platinum" DJ, but he is a poor drug dealer. He had a little loyalty to The general, but really hated 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. He appears to be as drug addicted as Shaundi.[reference?] He is also one of Shaundi's former boyfriends at the college. While they were high, he may have accidentally mentioned to her that the Samedi own a drug farm. This information led to the destruction of the farm by The Protagonist when Shaundi tells him about it.
The General and Mr. Sunshine confront him about this in a music store. The General tells him to kill Shaundi, or Mr. Sunshine will burn him alive. Veteran Child heads up to the Saints headquarters, and takes Shaundi hostage before escaping. He later lures The Protagonist to a club to be ambushed by the Samedi, but The Protagonist manages to survive. The Protagonist later heads down to the bottom of On Track, and confronts him. Veteran Child shot at him while using Shaundi as a human shield but The Protagonist manages to make him drop Shaundi by using flash bangs, and kills Veteran Child.
DJ Veteran Child reappears as a simulated version of himself in Saints Row IV. This version of him first appears at the end of the mission De Plane Boss. Here he is holding Fun Shaundi and using her as a shield in a way similar to how his real-life counterpart did in Saints Row 2. By 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.
The virtual version of DJ Veteran Child then later appears DJing and as a boss fight in Shaundi's loyalty mission Psychosomatic. 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.
After this mission DJ Veteran Child is reconstructed as a homie that The Protagonist can call via his phone.
He was apparently a friend of Jessica and Maero's (despite him being a member of a rival gang, the Sons of Samedi), as revealed during a Homie conversation with Maero in Saints Row IV, where he thanks Veteran Child for his help in finding a gift she liked.
Veteran Child does not have a conversation with Julius.
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."
Veteran Child and CID
Veteran Child: "So can you play music or anything useful?" 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."
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."
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."
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."
Veteran Child and Maero
Veteran Child: "Jessica like that gift I sent over?" Maero: "She did. Though how did you find it?" 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."
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."
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."
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."
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."
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."
Gat and Veteran Child
Johnny Gat: "So, how many times?" Veteran Child: "What are you talking about?" Johnny Gat: "How many times has Shaundi kill you now. What, like fifty?" Veteran Child: "Not cool, man." Johnny Gat: "I dunno fifty is pretty impressive."
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."
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?"
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?"
