A mercenary hireable from A.I.M.
"The flexible doctor Clifford Highball has honed his shooting skills with a needle and rifle, and is a devout member of A.I.M. for the past six years. Though more versatile than most doctors, he still maintains the medical hard-line about fees for service." - Jagged Alliance
"Cliff's health has improved considerably since he gave up alcohol and put himself on a high-fibre diet. This is great news for potential employers since it's next to impossible to find doctors with Highballs efficient combination of marksmanship and medicine." - Jagged Alliance 2
- We are told Highball has also turned his explosives hobby into a marketable skill.
- Cliff has a South African accent. As such, Blood has a bad relationship with him due to Apartheid South Africa's tensions. Although that is one sided
- Has a wife, who continually prepares long lists of things to do once he returns from assignment - a fact he harps on consistently.
"Your timing is bad. I just got back from an assignment... My wife gave me a list of stuff to do... Could bloody well take me a week to get through!" - Initial refusal to hire (Jagged Alliance)
"I wonder what the wife is up. Making up another of her bloody job lists, no doubt." - Idling time in Deadly Games
"Thank you for calling doctor Clifford Highball. I cannot speak to you at this time. Leave your first name and message, and I will return your call at a more opportune moment." - Answering machine (Jagged Alliance 2)
"No,you jackanapes! If I was suicidal,I'd just bloody well hang myself." - refuse to join (Jagged Alliance 2)
