Michael Bell is a professional American actor and voice actor. Within the Legacy of Kain series, Bell is best known as the voice of Raziel, introduced as a new protagonist in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and Bell continued in this role throughout Soul Reaver 2 and Legacy of Kain: Defiance. He also plays the character of Melchiah in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and apparently provides several Additional Voices for the series, for which he is uncredited, but seen performing in out-takes.
Bell's Dialogue as Raziel would be sampled and re-worked for the 'Raziel and Kain' Character Pack DLC for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
- Despite his advanced age (of the cast, only Paul Lukather and the late Tony Jay were elder), Bell is notably seen in his out-take footage to be surprisingly energetic and well-humoured.
- Bell is a prolific video-game voice actor, notably taking the role of Peter Jacob in Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (created by Silicon Knights, the developers of Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain) alongside other Legacy of Kain alumni Neil Ross, Richard Doyle and Philip Proctor.
