Voice Actor Michael Cusack
It's Knifey! He's a talking knife! We don't know much more about him than that. He used to pal around Gene Zaroothian before ending up in the hands of the Torg family. Now he's on your team, thank god. Seriously, he's insane. All he wants to do is kill. He would kill you in a heartbeat if he had any way to do it. And we respect that.
