―Jim Bravura

Jim Bravura (unknown - 2011/2012) was the Deputy Chief of the NYPD and, later, a Homicide unit lieutenant. A dedicated policeman, he has the strict belief that any cop should act within the law, often very much in contrast to the outlook of Max Payne.

At some point before 2001, Bravura joined the NYPD and then became the deputy chief of the department. By the time Max Payne joins the NYPD, Bravura was an Inspector.

Valkyr caseEdit

In 2001, Jim Bravura has a position as the NYPD Deputy Chief and leads the police chase against Max Payne, but has difficulty catching up to Max during his rampage through the criminal underworld.

Eventually, after killing Nicole Horne on the rooftop of the Aesir Headquarters building, the fugitive surrenders to Bravura's SWAT team willingly, and is taken away in their truck.

Cleaner caseEdit

By 2003, an exonerated Max now works as a detective for Bravura, who has demoted himself to Homicide lieutenant. Bravura debriefs Payne after his shootouts with the Cleaners in Annie Finn's warehouse and his apartment complex.

He assigns Valerie Winterson the case of the murdered Senator Gate, in which Mona Sax is the prime suspect.

After Max Payne is caught working with the fugitive Sax in an Upper East Side apartment shootout with numerous Cleaners, Bravura orders the detective to remain at his desk and type up a detailed report of the incident.

Bravura is later seen in the New York Memorial hospital, attempting to find and interrogate a hospitalized Max about the death of Winterson when Mitchum, an Ingram-wielding commando sent to eliminate Max, guns the police lieutenant down. When Payne finds the security room, he can see Bravura being operated on via a surveillance camera. Payne remarks that Bravura is 'too stubborn to die.'

Later that night, in Senator Alfred Woden's office at his manor, Max turns on the television and sees Kyra Silver's NYNN report, which says that Bravura is in stable condition after being shot.

Later lifeEdit

Following the events of the Cleaner case, Bravura returns to work. At some point later, Bravura summons Max to his office where he and Max agree that, due to Max shooting Winterson, he will quit the NYPD. Bravura promises to get Payne a pension, and asks Max if he ever lied to him. Max also reveals to Bravura that Winterson was the lover of Vladimir Lem, the man who was behind the Cleaners.
