Geese Howard (ギース・ハワード) was the boss of all organized crime in the fictional city of Southtown in SNK Playmore's Fatal Fury fighting game series.

According to his official biography, Geese was born January 21, 1953. He stood 1.83 m (6 ft) tall and weighed 82 kg (180 lb). His blood was type B. He had no hobbies, as he tired of things quickly. His favourite food was red fried steak. He had no favourite sports, and considered himself his most important thing. He loathes anyone who gets in his way for any reason, i.e. Takuma Sakazaki. Geese Howard is voiced by Kong Kuwata, who also did the voices for Genjuro Kibagami and Neinhalt Sieger from the Samurai Shodown series.

Background

Geese Howard trained in the school of Hakkyokuseiken with Jeff Bogard, but Master Tung Fu Rue passed him over and taught Jeff the secrets of the style. This angered Geese, as ever since Tung Fu Rue declared Jeff Bogard the favorite, Geese swore revenge against Jeff Bogard.

Geese Howard rose to the top in an unusual way--during the Art of Fighting era, Geese gained power as a kingpin of crime. First, he made good of his threats against the Sakazakis, since Takuma stood in his way. Geese forced Takuma to cooperate at all costs or suffer the consequences. Takuma Sakazaki did not like the idea of serving Geese Howard when he was ordered to kill Jeff Bogard. Takuma refused, so Geese kidnapped Yuri Sakazaki and have Mr. Big supervise Takuma to prevent Takuma from disobeying Geese. Mr. Big then ordered Takuma to fight his own son Ryo Sakazaki. Ryo's anger almost had Takuma killed, but Yuri came unscathed, told Ryo not to do so, and revealed that both Ryo and Takuma were tricked into fighting each other.

Takuma resigned from Geese's ranks and swore revenge against Geese Howard by doing the unusual--Takuma had to train Yuri as a vehicle for his revenge against Geese for disgracing the honor of Kyokugenryu Karate. During Art of Fighting 2, the Sakazakis (and Robert Garcia) managed to defeat Geese. Geese then evaded the Haoushoukouken deathblow attempted by Ryo and then gunned Jeff down in a drive-by shooting shortly, in front of Jeff's adopted sons, Terry and Andy.

In his rise to the top, Geese Howard obtained the services of Billy Kane as his personal bodyguard, and set Billy up as the champion when Geese organized the first King of Fighters tournament in a fit of boredom.

In 1992, three new contestants entered Geese's tournament: Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, and Andy's friend Joe Higashi. Very few people defeated Billy, but Terry did just that, and earned the right to fight Geese himself. They battled in Geese Tower, and Terry managed to defeat him with a blow that knocked him through a plate glass window on one of the upper floors.

Geese Howard was declared dead, but he survived the fall. Theories range from throwing rapid Shippu-Ken energy blasts to slow his descent, to using his hakama pants as a parachute. Anyway, Geese returned to the world's attention when he entered the 1996 King of Fighters tournament, with his underling Mr. Big and fellow world martial arts master Wolfgang Krauser (contrary to popular opinion, Geese and Krauser are not officially related). His plan to learn about the power of Orochi failed, and he survived an assassination attempt by Mr. Big (with Billy's timely intervention), and Geese returned to Southtown.

The next year, he sent a team to the King of Fighters, consisting of Billy Kane, Blue Mary, and Ryuji Yamazaki. Again, he failed to gain the power of Orochi, but Ryuji burst into his office and attacked, possessed by the power of Orochi in his blood.

Geese then encountered Terry Bogard again, and they fought on Geese Tower's observation deck (decorated as a Japanese shrine). Terry knocked Geese through the wooden guardrail, and grabbed him as he fell. Geese pulled himself from Terry's grasp, and allowed himself to fall to his death.

Geese is survived by his son Rock Howard, whom Terry has trained for some time. Believe it or not, Kain R. Heinlein is in fact, his brother-in-law (even though Kain does NOT like Geese whatsoever, see Kain R. Heinlein for more information), mainly because without a doubt, Marie Heinlein is Geese's wife.

Even though Geese is known to be dead in the Fatal Fury story line, he is alive in the King of Fighters 2003 tournament as the sponsor of the Outlaw team (having Gato, Billy and Yamazaki). It is even more mysterious that Billy was not a bit surprised by Geese's prescence in the Outlaw team's story, as if Geese has not been killed. This has led to doubts on whether the KOF storyline is concurrent with the Fatal Fury storyline (i.e. in the same universe).
