Kevin Keene (also known as Captain N) is the main protagonist of Captain N: The Game Master as well as the title character. The two versions of the character share a lot of personality traits and some backstory.
Prior to being brought to Videoland, Kevin seemed like an average, unremarkable American teenager - who just happened to really like playing video games. He even owned an NES Advantage and a grey Zapper.
Kevin lives with his mom, dad, and a dog named Duke. He lives in a typical, two-story house in a bustling city without a known name. The family has a gardener. While assumed to be at the very least 16-17 years old, Kevin doesn't have his driver's license yet.
Kevin was playing Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! during the evening one day, when his mother had told him to clean up his room, do homework, and take out the trash. The Ultimate Warp Zone opened and pulled him into Videoland, fulfilling the Legend of Videoland. Kevin became Captain N: The Game Master. Duke jumped in after him and followed.
Kevin initially doesn't believe that he's in Videoland (to say nothing of suddenly going from being live-action to animated, which he strangely doesn't reference at all until much later) and then, accepting that, refuses to help and wants to go home. However, the Ultimate Warp Zone closes, keeping him in Videoland. He eventually rescues Princess Lana from Mother Brain and joins the cause. ("Kevin in Videoland")
- Marksmanship: Kevin relies on using his Power Pad and Zapper, which were supplied to him by the Ultimate Warp Zone when he was brought to Videoland. ("Kevin in Videoland")
- Climbing: Kevin is good at climbing. ("Kevin in Videoland")
- Videogame Know-How: Kevin knows lots of games, enemy data, and the location of important items in the respective Videoland sub-worlds.
Relationships with Other Characters
Lana was initially upset at Kevin for not agreeing to help her, but she soon comes to trust Kevin and have confidence in him after he rescues her from Mother Brain. He apologizes for not taking her seriously earlier, and then she says she should apologize to him (probably for thinking he'd immediately accept his duties as a hero). ("Kevin in Videoland")
It is implied several times throughout the series that Kevin and Lana are in love with each other.
Simon starts off unimpressed by Kevin, often ridiculing him or acting antagonistic towards him. In later episodes he comes to respect Kevin's leadership of the N Team and works with him willingly, though he still views him as an occasional rival for Lana's attention.
There are times when Simon shows a hidden admiration of Kevin.
