Billy Kane his sister (Lily) grew up as orphans in London, England. His family name Kane is meant to be pronounced "Billy Kon" or "Kaan". When Geese Howard was on a business trip in England, he was impressed with Billy's skill with the staff and eventually picked him up as his right-hand man. Armed with a three-sectioned special staff, Billy met the young Terry Bogard and was defeated. Some years later, he entered KOF together with Eiji and Iori, but was thrashed up by the latter after their defeat. Eager to get his revenge, he went with Yamazaki and Blue Mary to investigate the Orochi power for Geese. Soon thereafter, Geese was killed and Billy was left in charge. 

After his Geese's apparent death, Billy went back to England with his sister. In order to adequately provide for her, Billy continued his life of crime and joined Wolfgang Krauser. Although it seemed like he was loyal to the nobleman, Billy was actually working undercover to search and destroy Geese's impostor. His additional order was to overthrow Krauser.

Billy Kane... geez, this guy's been around for a while. He never was one of my personal favorite SNK characters, even though I'm a fellow bo staff user. Heh. ;) SNK did a fair job at developing him into a more likeable design after all these years, but his outfits were never that great in my opinion. My favorite of his would be his KOF 2003 outfit.

His fighting style could be better, but he has a pretty good selection of moves.
Anyhow, I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with him in KOF XIII. In closing, Billy Kane stands for a positive message at least... "No smoking!" lol.
