Call of Juarez Wiki

Kimberly Evans is one of the three playable characters in Call of Juarez: The Cartel. Kim is a 29-year-old African-American special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigating the Mendoza Cartel. She has ties to numerous criminal elements in Los Angeles, the prime reason for her candidacy in the task force.

Kim Evans is voiced by Janora McDuffie.

Early Life[]

Kimberly was born in Compton in 1982 and raised there by a single mother who struggled to put food on the table. Three of her brothers joined the Rolling 50's street gang. Two were murdered in gang-related shootings. At the age of 11, she was attacked by the female members of the gang and beaten within an inch of her life. It was her initiation into the Rolling 50's. Her younger brother, Deon, is still involved with the Rolling 50's and is the only family she has left.

She did what she could to survive, but never stopped going to school and was determined to make a better life for herself. She studied hard and earned a scholarship to UCLA. After graduation, she was recruited by the FBI as part of a new minority outreach program and they put her through Stanford Law. After advanced training at Marine Corps Base Quantico, she was selected by the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit and used as bait in an operation to hook a serial killer. She single-handedly apprehended the suspect and, in the process, saved the life of his last victim.

Kim was awarded the FBI Medal for Meritorious Achievement and was promoted to the FBI's new anti-gang task force, partly because of her ties to Los Angeles criminal gangs.

She's grateful for the opportunity the FBI has given her and is determined to do whatever it takes to prove herself to her superiors. This attitude has made her a rising star; a tough, no nonsense, by-the-book agent who knows the streets better than most because that's where she grew up.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel[]

Kimberly is first seen picking up Deon from DEA custody after being arrested during a deal between Araña and the Rolling 50's. She reprimands Deon, and pleads with him to "get out of the life", before he gets sent to Folsom prison.

Standoff[]

From here, after finally catching up to Alvarez, Ben is quick to kill him for what he has done, but Kim steps in, telling him that his testimony can put Dickson and Waters in jail and that he is the undercover agent in the cartel. Ben states that he will gain immunity and he will walk free, resulting in Kim aiming at him. Eddie then suggests just killing him and taking all of the money in the hacienda and run away, splitting it three ways. However, after hearing that Eddie has a price on his head as well as incriminating evidence, he aims his guns at both Kim and Ben, where one of the three decide what to do.

  • No-one fights (Canon) - Neither of then fight, and Kim reluctantly decides to let Ben execute Alvarez. However, Ben has a change of heart and spares him. Eddie sits in defeat about how they are going to lose the money as well as their freedoms. Kim kicks Alvarez in the face afterwards. Later, it is revealed their efforts are fruitful and Dickson and Waters are arrested, but Kim is arrested soon after along with Eddie, while Ben visits Jess’ grave.
  • Kim fights (Non-Canon) - Kim starts the fight as Alvarez throws a frag grenade to throw the three off. They fight in the hacienda, and Kim guns down the other two. She is later arrested for attempting to fight Dickson.
  • The other two fights (Non-Canon) - Kim is shot and killed by either Ben or Eddie, while one or the other walks free alive.

Combat[]

In battle, Kim favors long-range engagements using a selection of sniper and marksman rifles (most prominently, the Dragunov SVD), and provides overwatch for the team during operations on several occasions. Like her teammates, she uses Concentration Mode, slowing down time and spouting various remarks relating to her background in law, and enforcement thereof.

Appearance[]

In spite of her professional attitude, Kim maintains a fairly casual dress code, wearing tight-fitting jeans, heeled boots and a sleeveless hoodie jacket for a majority of the game. She carries three pistols on her body: two on her upper body and the other on her hip. She has black hair worn short and swept, and sports a visible tattoo of a rose on her right arm. When working under cover, her disguises range from simply putting up her hood to donning a revealing purple designer dress, though she can rarely conceal her belligerent personality.

Personality[]

Kim is utterly devoted to her responsibilities as a federal agent, and often defers to standard police procedure or higher authority as opposed to the mercenary tactics of her allies. She is characteristically short-tempered, particularly towards her squadmate Eddie Guerra, reflecting an ongoing inter-agency rivalry between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and furtively gathers evidence to compete with the DEA investigation throughout the game for her supervisor, Allen Watters. As such, she places the success of her investigation above trust in her teammates, most prominently conspiring with her federal informant Antonio Alvarez against squad leader Ben McCall, in exchange for his cooperation.

In rare instances, she displays genuine compassion and concern for Jessica Stone, a key witness in the Mendoza investigation, comforting her in times of grief and exhibiting audible distress after her collusion with Alvarez results in Stone's assassination.

Quotes[]

"This is bullshit."

"It is what it is." - Kim and a DEA agent.

Trivia[]
