He remembered this is the real world and his family needed food on the table. Thus he went to work for a legit PMC called Maveric, owned by an old friend of him (Boris). Fighting is all he really can do, he found that out pretty fast which is why it's his job.

Yes, and this game is a proof that Raiden will never be at peace with his own conscience.

Sad, but true... :(

There was discrimination against cyborgs, they were the equivalent of newly freed slaves back when lincoln feed them more or less.

a man who was born on the battlefield.
i was happy to see him with his wife and son. really.
there where concept arts of them together.
when they went out raiden wore a long trenchcoat with half of his face covered. because he hated the way normal people looked at the scars on his arteficial skin.

besides he didnt want to fight.
his job was to train new recruits of the pmc company.
and to protect his friend the prime minister.

when he was killed. raiden had no choice but to fight.
its what he can best. what he was born for.

all he wanted was to support his family.
but then world marshall forced him to kill again.


i'm sad. but i dont think jack will have a peaceful life at the end of his path.
i still hope so though

Yeah, people need jobs.

A crazy, foreign, and unbelievable concept. I know.

Raiden is still with his family. Unfortunately, as a full-bodied cyborg, he is discriminated against. At this point in time, full-body cybernetics is not unheard of, but they are not looked upon highly. There is a lot of discrimination in public and work life. In all reality, the only things they really get hired for are construction jobs and military jobs.

As such, Raiden and Boris, whom he met during his time with the Paradise Lost Army (Big Mama's crew) team up to form Maverick Security. Maverick is technically a PMC, which haven't gone away just because the Patriots did, but it acts more as a security company: secured transports, training military and police forces, providing backup in security operations.. that kind of stuff. They aren't exactly warmongers who shoot up countries for a certain price. They are essentially highly formidable bodyguards.

Raiden didn't return to war, but he returned to the military style world, because that's all he's good at. His deployments run for 3 months, so he isn't gone from his family for too long at a time. However, as you find out in the first chapter of the game, things go down that Raiden can't just walk away from, and his internal demons come bubbling back to the surface.

I wanna see that concept art. Cyborg Raiden in a long coat sounds pretty boss.
