Summary

Geese Howard is the CEO of the Howard Connection Agency and is the head of the South Town mafia. He was originally a student under Tung Fu Rue until Geese left when he wasn't given the secret scroll of Hakkyokuseiken which were given to Geese's friend, Jeff Bogard.

Geese would head to South Town to defeat Mr. Big and take over his criminal empire. Once he was in charge, Geese would find his friend, Jeff and kill him and steal the secret scroll from him.

Ten years later, Geese would have to fight both of Jeff's sons, Terry and Andy who would manage to defeat him after they won his King of Fighters tournament.

After his defeat, Geese wished for Terry to be eliminated so he signed up Billy Kane to join The King of Fighters '95 tournament alongside the ninja, Eiji Kisaragi and the mysterious Iori Yagami, however, Billy was unable to kill Terry but would see for himself the power of Orochi which he would inform Geese of.

Once hearing about the Orochi, Geese would investigate it himself by manipulating Geese's former underling, Mr. Big and his half-brother, Wolfgang Krauser into forming Team Bosses and joining The King of Fighters '96 tournament, however, Geese would learn that he could not use Orochi's power due to him not being a member of the Orochi Bloodline. After escaping an assassination attempt by Mr. Big, Geese would leave.

During the King of Fighters XIV tournament, Geese would recruit a new Butler named Hein and he and Billy would join Geese to form Team South Town in order to learn about the mysterious being that appeared in the predictions of the Jin Scrolls, after learning that Verse was incomplete so he planned to enter the King of Fighters XV tournament alongside Billy and notorious criminal Ryuji Yamazaki so they could face the completed Verse and whatever would come after it.
