Character Description

In 1981, Geese Howard kills Jeff Bogard in front of his son Terry's eyes (revealed in Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition) and hires Billy Kane as his personal bodyguard. He sets up Billy as his champion in his King of Fighters tournaments. Ten years after Jeff's death, Terry, his brother Andy Bogard, and their friend Joe Higashi enter Geese's King of Fighters tournament. Terry faces him on top of Geese Tower and defeats him by knocking him out the window. While the town presumes him to be dead, Geese was actually alive, apparently thanks to the secrets of a Chinese scroll in his possession. The scroll, called the "Phoenix Scroll", was later discovered in Geese Tower; it allows the user to speed up their recovery rate.

During Fatal Fury Special, an imposter sent by Krauser started to run Geese's company as his own. While Billy went to take care of him, Geese focused his attentions on his recovery and the rumor of the Jin scrolls. Hearing that the scrolls grant immortality, he discreetly searches for them. The story in Real Bout Fatal Fury explains that Geese obtained all three scrolls from Jin Chonshu and Jin Chonrei. However, he strategically wants them destroyed so that they would never be used against him. In the same game, he finally announces his presence to the public and organizes another King of Fighters tournament to settle his differences with the Bogard brothers. In the tournament's climax, he faces Terry and is once again thrown from the tower. Although Terry caught hold of his nemesis' hand, Geese refused his help and wrenched his arm away from Terry's grasp.

Though there was speculation that he survived his second encounter, the story in Garou: Mark of the Wolves depicts that Geese had fatally fell from Geese Tower. The Real Bout series alluded to this fact with his ghost/nightmare form that appeared as a difficult secret boss. He is survived in the games by his son Rock Howard.

Snake Codec

  • (Mei-Ling) Snake, if you had a mortal enemy at your mercy, would you choose to finish them?
  • (Snake) That's a question that's come up several times. I can't say that I don't have blood on my hands. Sometimes its best to avoid unnecessary deaths, but there will be times when it can't be avoided.
  • (Mei-Ling) Have you ever heard "He who conquers his anger has conquered an enemy?"
  • (Snake) Anger, hm? You mean like revenge?
  • (Mei-Ling) Like have you ever felt anger against an enemy like Liquid or Ocelot?
  • (Snake) There will be times when someone like that will push my physical and mental stamina to their limits. At the point, instinct takes over.
  • (Mei-Ling) Well look at it from Terry Bogard's perspective. Geese Howard was a man who took the life of Terry's father and he sought vengeance against him many years later.
  • (Snake) Did he finish him?
  • (Mei-Ling) Actually, Terry chose to grant mercy to his enemy and save him from plummeting to his death. He chose not to become his enemy.
  • (Snake) Its obvious he survived if he's standing here in front of me.
  • (Mei-Ling) The reports say he chose to fall to his death rather than be spared by his enemy, but no one was ever able to find a body.
  • (Snake) So is this a ghost or some kind of "nightmare"?
  • (Mei-Ling) I can't say for sure. Just keep in mind what I said about controlling your anger.
  • (Snake) I'll keep that in mind.

  • Geese's outfit in the original Fatal Fury game had an USA flag imprinted/sewn on the back of his shirt, which was taken off in subsequent appearances. Also, this was the only Fatal Fury game in which he fought with his shirt on; in all other Fatal Fury games, he fights shirtless (though he keeps his shirt hanging off of his belt in Fatal Fury Special), whereas he keeps his shirt on in all his appearances outside the Fatal Fury series. Three American flags can also be seen in the background of Geese's stage in Fatal Fury 3.
  • His name is an alternate spelling of the German name Giese, which in turn is a short form of the name Giesbrecht, which means "noble offspring".
  • He Was Ranked #5 in WiiDude83Rebirth and The Quarter Guy's Top 10 Cheapest Fighting Game Bosses
