Cole Black is a playable fighter in Go All Out!
He is an English marksman and a killer from a psychological thriller video game Get Even.
Before ‘Get Even’
Cole Black lived in a modern world. He was an ex-military killer who knew his weapons very well. Thanks to that he was very good at his job.
We don't know anything about Cole’s youth, but he's been the part of the military for seven years before the events of Get Even. After leaving the military, Cole has spent most of his days drinking. In order to keep his lifestyle, he's taken small-scale security jobs. Hovewer, his abilities gave him quite a reputation, so he changed his profession from a security guard to a contacted hit-man.
This helped Cole quit drinking. Since that day he had only ever used his money to show how important and serious his contracts were to his clients.
One day, he was hired by Robert Ramsey, CEO of Future Defence Group (FDG) to infiltrate their rival company, the Advanced Defence Strategy (ADS), the UK’s leading weapons manufacturer. He was supposed to steal the CornerGun and wipe out the company’s data. Cole successfully did this and more. ADS went bankrupt shortly after the infiltration.
After this Ramsey decided to hire Cole as the part of the Head of Security for the FDG. Cole was supposed to help Ramsey with his dirty work whenever it was deemed necessary.
Sometime later, Cole was caught by Roger Howard, the former CEO of ADS. Howard knew that Cole was the one who stole the CornerGun and that it was for this reason that Ramsey kept Cole close. Howard decided to give Cole an offer to work for him instead of Ramsey and steal FDG’s latest technology device, the Pandora headset. In exchange he offered to forget Cole’s theft. Cole refused to do it by himself and instead proposed that they should work together. They've decided to steal the Pandora headset without casualty.
Their plan was to kidnap Lenore, Ramsey’s wife and use her for ransom to get the Pandora headset. Rose Atkins, Ramsey's trusted research assistant, helped them out by hiring Jasper Prado to set the plan in motion. However, the plan backfired when Prado’s men kidnapped Grace, Ramsey’s daughter, instead of Lenore.
Cole found out about it from Atkins. He also found out that Prado constructed a bomb and taped it to Grace’s chest. Because of this, Cole killed Jasper Prado and attempted to save Grace himself. By the time he had made it to the place where she had been kept in, the bomb was activated. Cole attempted to deactivate it, but was too late and the bomb went off.
The events of ‘Get Even’
Cole Black woke up, not remembering who he was. He had only one thing on his mind: to save the girl. But he had already failed to save the girl. That was just a memory.
Cole found himself at an asylum where a mysterious man on a screen named ‘Red’ told him to explore the asylum. He promised to help him answer two questions that he seeks: who was the girl? And why was Cole there?
Cole started exploring his memories in the search for his indentity. Slowly everything started coming back to him: who he was and what he did, the infiltration of ADS, the plan to steal the Pandora headset and even memories of Robert Ramsey. He also figured out that Red is in fact, Robert Ramsey who wanted to know who was behind the kidnapping and why Cole was there to save Grace.
By the time he had fully remembered, he had found out that the asylum he was in was an illusion. In reality, Cole was inside a life support chamber in a coma this whole time,
After this realizaton hits, Cole's fate is in Ramsey's hands. After he finds out that Cole was the mastermind of the kidnapping, Ramsey either turns off Cole's life support, killing him instantly, or spares Cole and transfer him to a secure hospital where Cole will spend the rest of his life in a coma.
Arriving at Cadread
In Go All Out! events of Get Even are different. Cole wakes up in the asylum first instead of the 'save the girl' memory. He meets Red who tells him to explore his memories and only then he enters the memory where he has to save the girl. He tries to save the girl again but by the time he's about to defuse the bomb, he's taken by the light.
He then finds himself in Cadread. He thinks that it could be another memory, so he decides to play along and explore this 'memory'.
Since Cole comes from the game made in a photorealistic style, his body, face and clothing look quite realistic in GAO! as well, with a little mixture of Go All Out's style.
Cole wears a dark brown waterproof jacket, a green shirt, blue jeans and black shoes.
Cole's face is based on Łukasz Skowron, who is the head model of Cole Black from the original game. Skowron has also portrayed Cole in the teaser art for GAO!
Cole carries a variety of modern weapons, which include a pistol, an assault rifle and a shotgun. Cole also uses a CornerGun, a weapon that can shoot at a 90 degree angle and a make-shift bombs for his heavy special.
