Vicious man from Spike Spiegel's past. Once part of the same syndicate, Vicious stayed in while Spike left. Now, Vicious looks to take over and will kill Spike as he taunts him about Julia.
This cold-hearted Red Dragon crime syndicate member was once a comrade and partner to Spike before the latter's falling out when they got caught in a love triangle with a woman named Julia. Violent and ambitious, Vicious desired a position in power within the syndicate and was disgusted with the authority that the three elder leaders had. Unlike other characters in the series, Vicious wielded a katana in combat which he could skillfully use against those using guns. His encounters with Spike made for some of the most intense fights seen in Cowboy Bebop.
