Abel Cameron, better
known as Grant, is a master of the dark style known as Ankoku Karate and is a
mysterious personality in the Garou series. He's an old friend of Kain R. Heinlein's
and his personal bodyguard. He
protected Kain and his older sister (Marie) from the dangers of the slums
under his real name Abel. When Marie was sent away to live a life of luxury,
he chose to stay with Kain and watch over the boy as his father figure.
Nineteen years before the events of Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Kain had
enough of the slums and declared his ambitions for power. Determined to not
abandon him, he also invited Abel to join him. Abel agreed and took on the
name Grant from then on. They work well together as they share the same vision
of greatness. Grant had also made a deal with a dark entity in order to gain
the power of Ankoku Karate (Dark Karate), for which he trains in his temple
underneath his mansion.
Under his new persona,
Grant's duty to Kain was to eliminate any intruder or conspirators against
them. He has killed many men during Kain's rise to power, eventually choosing
to work in the shadows until he is needed. Four years before the events of Garou,
Grant shielded Kain from a gunshot and the bullet was lodged near his heart.
Since the bullet is difficult to remove, Grant lives everyday as his last and
wishes for a great final battle. When the "King of Fighters: Maximum
Mayhem" tournament takes place, his job is to lure strong opponents to
his lair and defeat them before they reach Kain. In his ending, he helps Kain
find and subdue the remaining kingpins in Second Southtown.
