NPCs

  • Cliff Morris: The team's former teammate. Disappeared suddenly in the caverns below Chicago whilst battling an awakened alien threat. Current status and whereabouts are unknown. Listed as MIA. Presumed, and hoped, to be dead.
  • Bemis Freeman: General Director of Asylum New York.
  • Clement Saratoga: Mayor and President on the University of Glass in the time-accelerated version of Glass, Montana.
  • Cindy Bailey: Half-breed found near Lake Erie. Was the offspring of a human (Mary Bailey) and a grotesque mutated human (Allen). Captured, and sent to Asylum for study.
  • Allen Singleton: Head researcher of the Hormel Experimental Foods facility beneath Lake Erie. First in a generation of humans trapped in the facility for over 120 years. Eventually, all his offspring took the name "Allen".
  • Erwin the Cat: Purchased by Jessica Weiss during the Deus ex Purnima operation, Erwin is Unit 27's pet cat. Agent Weiss originally intended to use Erwin to test the lethality of the Purnima Restaurant anomaly, but that plan was quickly dismissed by Agent Sarah Harker. Agent Weiss then named the cat Erwin after the renowned physicist Erwin Schrödinger and his famous thought experiment. It should be noted that Agent Harker, who paid $20 for the "mangy, disgruntled" cat, never agreed to the name of Erwin for "her" pet, but this doesn't seem to have phased Weiss in the slightest. Agent Harker has begun calling the cat Hexy, and for whatever reason the cat seems to like it.
  • Max the Hamster: Purchased by Jessica Weiss during the Deus ex Purnima operation, Max is Unit 27's pet hamster. Agent Weiss originally intended to use Max as a backup plan to test the lethality of the Purnima Restaurant anomaly, and the plan was endorsed by Agent Harker, but quickly dismissed by Agent Scott Renfield. Max is named after the father of quantum mechanics, Max Plank. Much like Erwin, no one besides Agent Weiss has actually agreed to call the $30 hamster Max.
  • Unit 34: Consisting of Daniel Shelby, Timothy Davis, and (the now released) Thomas Meredith.
