This page contains various charts detailing the mercenaries' attributes, skills, traits, hiring informations and hidden values in the first Jagged Alliance game.

Please note that mercenaries' stats are not set in stone. Over the course of the game, mercenaries will improve themselves, gain levels, get exhausted and wounded, all of which will in turn greatly affect the actual performances of your mercenaries, sometimes positively, other times negatively. The stats listed here reflect the stats as they appear at the beginning of the game and on mercenaries with perfect health and fully rested.

Attributes, Skills and TraitsEdit

Since most of the variables in this chart are self explanatory and since more in-depth informations can be found about them in the Skills page, some of them will not be described here.

LegendEdit

APs: Shows how many action points a fully healed and fully rested mercenary can regenerate in one turn. Also remember that up to five unspent action points can carry over from a previous turn.

Traits: Shows tendencies a mercenary has:

  • Extremely Nervous: Will whine if not accompanied at all time.
  • Forgetful: Will forget orders at the cost of APs.
  • Heat Resistant: Unaffected by the heat waves that randomly rolls on Metavira.
  • Hopeless Shot: Marksmanship improvement is a great challenge.
  • Native Guide: Native Guides are free of charge, give tidbits of info on the various sectors of Metavira, are unaffected by heat waves, receive bonus to avoid and kill Metaviran water snakes, are familiar with the Metaviran natives' language and are extremely loyal. Death or discharge of Native Guides do not affect A.I.M. death and turnover rates.
  • Non-Swimmer: Don't know how to swim and will rapidly lose their breath while swimming.
  • Over Enthusiastic: Will refuse to move or change target once they're engaged with an enemy. Have the tendency to kill teammates they dislike at night.
  • Snitch: Will report on any dissatisfaction your team might have with your management. Although unrelated, in Jagged Alliance, mercenaries with this trait are extremely loyal and won't steal money found on the battlefield. This is not always the case in Deadly Games.
  • Wimpy Conscience: This merc will quit the team and resign from A.I.M. as soon he kills someone on the battlefield.

IMP: "Yes" indicates this mercenary can improve his or her attributes and skills either on the battlefield or through training. "No" means this merc cannot improve his or her abilities in any ways, and "Reverse" indicates this merc is a hopeless case whose abilities can only go downhill.

Hiring InformationsEdit

It's worth noting that although rivalries between mercenaries exist in the first Jagged Alliance game, friendship between mercs have not been implemented in this early chapter. Instead, every time a merc is treated unjustly (fired, non-payment, body tossed into the river, etc.) one or two random mercenaries may (or may not) hear about your misconducts. If this happen, these mercenaries will only accept to work for you at double their salaries. However, if they learn you toss bodies into the river, no amount of money will make these mercenaries work for you.

LegendEdit

Hirable: Indicates how many days must have passed, or how many success points you must have collected before this mercenary accepts to work for you. Success points are scored by getting positive ratings from Jack at the end of a day (Good is worth 1 point; Excellent is worth 2 points; Outstanding is worth 3 points.)

Native guides are hired in a special way. If you have one free slot in your team at the start of the day, Jack might offers you one of his four trusted assistants to accompany you on the field. The first one of these will be Elio, then Hamous, Juan and finally Wahan. Elio will not be offered until Day 2, and all subsequent guides will be offered only two days after the previous guide has been fired or killed. Please note that it is entirely random whether Jack will offer you a guide at the start of the day or not.

Hates: The merc can't stand the guy in this column, when asked to work with this guy, the merc will threaten to leave the team or refuse to join unless the other guy is fired.

Will Hate: The merc has initially no problem working with the guy in this column, but after a few days it will become apparent that they cannot work together. The merc will threaten to leave unless the other guy is fired.

If an asterisk follows a name in the Hates or Will Hate columns, rather than threaten to leave, the merc will try to kill the person they dislike.

Death, Turnover and Non-Payment: The merc will threaten to leave or refuse to join should your Death, Turnover or Non-Payment rates reach this value. Native deaths or discharges do not affect these values.

Fail: The merc will threaten to leave or refuse to join should Jack gives you less than a Fair rating for this number of days in a row. Should you screw up more than five days in a row, you'll find yourself without a job.

Bribe %: If the merc decides to quit for one reason or another, he might be willing to stay for this percentage increase to his salary (For example, if a merc whose salary is $1000 asks for a 200% raise, that means you must pay him $3000). Of course, some mercs cannot be bribed.

Steal: Anyone who kills for a living probably isn't that ethical. Multiply this number by the merc's salary. Should you find cash on the battlefield, equal or greater to this number, and order that merc to carry it to the base, he might just decide that Hawaii is a better island for him and your money. Native Guides and mercs with the Snitch trait won't steal your money.
