Creator / Troy Baker
Troy Edward Baker is a voice actor and musician from Texas whose forte seems to be playing assholes, be they heroic or villainous. On the other hand, though, he's also good at playing comedic characters, even though some of them just might end up being the former.

He has been doing voiceover work in California and with this change his forte has switched to playing Magnificent Bastards. If he voices a character like this, expect a character voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch to oppose him. Also seems to like playing a Fake Brit, generally either the Evil Brit or The Mean Britnote . He has also, apparently, taken on the mantle of voicing The Joker due to his near-perfect impersonation of the iconic Joker voice done by Mark Hamill.

Troy married his wife Pam on October 13, 2012. Apparently, this is one of the main reasons why Matthew Mercer took over his role as Kanji in the second half of the Persona 4 anime. By the time he's back from honeymoon, he's gone to become so well-known that he joins the ranks of Steve Blum and Crispin Freeman of legendary voice actors that he ends up as a union-only voice actor, meaning that for most of his roles, Matthew Mercer would end up succeeding those.

Troy is currently one of the most popular voice actors working out of Los Angeles today - you probably know him best for Booker Dewitt in Bioshock Infinite, Joel in The Last of Us, the default male voice in the Saints Row series from 3 onwards, the first voice of Kanji in Persona 4 (he left halfway through recording of the anime adaptation because of his marriage and honeymoon, and has since been replaced by Matthew Mercer), Hawkeye in Avengers Assemble and Snow in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.

His Japanese counterpart is Takehito Koyasu, mostly due to the joke that they are in everything in addition to their similar vocal ranges note . In terms of shared roles, he's the American counterpart to Tomokazu Seki and Kosuke Toriumi.
