Character history

Life until 2000

8-Ball was born and raised in Liberty City and by 1984 had started his business across the United States, including in Vice City (initially in Downtown and later in Viceport), in San Andreas (in El Corona, Los Santos) and in Liberty City (in Saint Mark's, Newport and Pike Creek). He established contacts with various people in Liberty City, including businessman Donald Love, who sent Toni Cipriani to 8-Ball at his Pike Creek garage to fill a van full of explosives to be used to destroy the Fort Staunton district of Staunton Island.

2000 to 2001

In 2000 he helps old friend Vinnie by creating fake IDs that Mike collected. Mike returns to 8-Ball following the death of Vinnie and agrees to work for him whilst 8-Ball investigates Vinnie's death, saying he has some ideas of who was responsible. 8-Ball first has Mike dispose of Vinnie's body at the Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard, as "they don't ask questions". Following this, Mike helps to pimp out three women (including Misty) to "high-rolling" clients, deliver a package to an angry customer, and extract revenge on Scorelli for 8-Ball. 8-Ball, with information from one of the prostitutes, sends Mike to meet a bar tender, Jonnie. 8-Ball later meets Mike again in a diner, but the two are ambushed by the Colombian Cartel, who are looking to kill Mike following the death of leader Cisco. 8-Ball burns his hands during the ambush and is unable to escape, telling Mike to do so before the police arrive.

8-Ball is arrested and convicted on eighty-five counts of owning a firearm without a licence, although a Liberty Tree article, it is stated that 8-Ball was arrested at his home/garage in Saint Mark's and that a police officer poured a pan of boiling fat onto his hands. After being convicted a decision is made to transfer him, along with bank robber Claude and a un-named elderly man to the police station in Portland View. The police convoy, however, is attacked by the Colombian Cartel, who successfully kidnap the un-named elderly man. In the confusion, 8-Ball and Claude work together to escape and get far enough away to not be injured when a bomb, planted by the Cartel, destroys the Callahan Bridge. The two then escape to a hideout in the Red Light District.

After changing out of their orange prison uniforms, 8-Ball has Claude drive him to Luigi's Sex Club 7 and introduces him to Luigi Goterelli, an old friend and member of the Leone Family, who begins to employ him. Salvatore Leone, the Don of the Leone Family, later sends Claude to 8-Ball and the two later destroy a freighter at Portland Harbor, which was being used by the Colombian Cartel to manufacture the drug SPANK. His friendship with Claude, however, is ended when, under orders from Salvatore Leone, he plants a bomb in a car designed to kill Claude, who only survived due to the Don's wife, Maria Latore.

Trivia

  • An authentic production artwork of 8-Ball has the name Mullan, A.K.A. 8-Ball written besides his image, suggesting his name may have been Mullan in development. This name was never used in any GTA game.
  • 8-Ball Autos is also used in the missions Mike Lips Last Lunch, Kanbu Bust-out (both in GTA III) and Shogun Showdown (in GTA Liberty City Stories).

History

Jeff had a gambling problem. He started gambling as a way to get his mind off of his job as a missile propulsion engineer for the Department of Defense, but quickly found himself owing thousands to pool sharks. Eventually, he was fired because his employer was worried he would sell their secrets to pay his debts. Penniless and still owing the sharks, Hagees became 8-Ball to steal the money he owed.

Sleepwalker tracked down 8-Ball, and almost captured him twice.

8-Ball frequented The Bar With No Name, a popular super-villain hangout, where he often played pool with Oddball.

He challenged Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale) to a $100,000 round of pool, but Macendale changed the prize during the game to who got to kill Sleepwalker, Hagees' nemesis, who had almost caught him twice. The game of pool turned into the challenge of actually being the first to kill Sleepwalker, but during said challenge, both 8-Ball and Hobgoblin realized that Sleepwalker wasn't fighting as hard as he usually was (due to a mind-transfer with Rick Sheridan), and neither wanted to kill the weaker version.

Eventually Hagees was arrested and sent to prison in the Big House. He eventually escaped on She-Hulk's hand, (since the Big House stayed shrunk by Pym particles), along with a group of villains including the Mad Thinker. He was eventually returned to prison by She-Hulk, but managed to escape again, this time organizing thefts in order to help his sick grandmother instead of paying off his debts. When he helped Whirlwind, Humbug, and Freezer Burn steal a computer chip from Ricadonna, she put out contracts on their lives, and 8-Ball was subsequently killed by the Wrecker while being escorted back to prison by Misty Knight and Coleen Wing.
