Colonel Mael Radec, known as the "Hound of Visari," is the commander of Visari’s personal guard and the main antagonist of Killzone 2. Formerly an Academy Commandant, he is highly evolved for his function. Radec is utterly focused on his duties and maintaining order and discipline - in Killzone 2 he had two Helghast grunts executed for "uniform violations." While a gifted tactician, he is merely a competent strategist. His genius lies not in the planning, but in the fighting of battles. Radec is noted for leading from the front in battle. He combines situational awareness with a near-perfect assessment of the capabilities of both his own men and the opposing force. In personal combat he is ruthless, vicious and overwhelming. During the battle for Helghan, Radec manages to board the ISA cruiser New Sun and kills both Templar and Evelyn in an attempt to steal the ISA's nuclear launch codes. He is later defeated by Sev and Rico during their assault on Visari's palace. Rather than be captured, Radec commits suicide. He is voiced by British actor Sean Pertwee who had voiced Hakha in Killzone. He is seen during the flashblack in Killzone 3. Radec is a playable character in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

VICIOUS LEADER OF THE HELGHAST FORCES
Colonel Mael Radec is a brilliant tactician who leads his troops from the front. His unwavering focus on victory at any cost has made the conquest of Helghast a formidable task for the ISA. He brings that same ruthlessness to personal combat, where he is the human personification of a shark, all of his training focused to a singular purpose: the destruction of his enemy.
Radec uses an assortment of ranged weaponry for his move set. Despite this, he is very susceptible to close corners combat.
- Level 1 - Radec fires a short burst from his plasma cannon
- Level 2 - Radec arms a rocket-firing weapon, which the player manually aims using a targeting reticle, and fires
- Level 3 - Radec equips his jetpack and flies into the foreground. From there, the player controlling Radec may attempt to shoot the other fighters from a first-person perspective
